Friend Card #2

Here is the second card I made in the new craft room of our new home.

I am really enjoying this space.

 I am using my Tim Holtz media mat to blend my inks in the colors Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserves, and Black Soot.

I used Bristol Smooth card stock and my Taylored Expressions blender brushes.
 Started off with my pink.
 Then added the purple on edges, blending between the colors to create a seemless blend.
 I added black around the edges and slightly in the center.

Trying to go for a Northern Lights feel.
 Some Titanium White paint for some stars.
 Some watered down Pearlex Aztec Gold powder to create some shimmer and more stars.
 A close up with the flash on.
 Not a new die but a die I have not used before.

I cut out two from black card stock.
 I stamped the inside with the rock and roll technique and also stamped off once then onto the inside to make it not so intense.
Finished card.

 I added a gold embossed sentiment.

One a Blackberry Bliss top folding card base and a couple of strips of Melon Mambo card stock.
 Close up, no foam dimension on this card, I left it all flat.
Close up of the inside of the card.

I used Melon Mambo and Blackberry Bliss ink for the inside.

Friend Card #1

I decided to make a few cards for my friends now that we are mostly settled in our new home and I have my very nice large craft room now.

My creativity was flowing and decided to bring out some new product.



 This stamp set I have had for a while but not really used and have found it has some great encouragement sentiments.

Its from MFT and called Complimentary Greetings.

 I used my Hampton Art Stamp Tool to stamp them all out using MFT ink called Black Licorice.
 This is a new die set that I purchased recently from MFT called Straight Up Rainbow.
 I used some white card stock from my stash for the cloud faces.

I used Stampin Up card stock for the rays.
- Riding Hood Red, Tangelo Twist, Crushed Curry, Garden Green, Night of Navy, and Rich Razzleberry.
 After cutting them out I added them onto copy paper with my tape runner adhesive.
 I added some foam to the rays after I cut them out from the copy paper.

My card bases are our of Cool Caribbean.
 I added foam to each side of the sentiment and the bottom of the cloud.

I also added a bit of tape runner to the other areas of the sentiment and cloud.
 Alas, I added some gems from Hobby Lobby. The one other sad thing about Alaska, no Hobby Lobby.
I have 5 more of these cards in my stash now.

 I made these top folding cards, adhered the blue panel flat.

I also used Tombow Mono Liquid glue for the gems.

Framed Sympathy Card

Here lately there has been so many of my friends loosing a parent, this is the third card I have sent out this past few months.

I went to pinterest to search ideas, I also found this old Stamp set from Simon Says Stamp called Floral Bookmarking that I have barely used maybe one time. I got it in one of their older card kits.

This card has alot of white space witch is sometimes very intimidating to me because I do not make many cards with that much white space, very clean and simple like.

 I started off by using Lawn Fawn Stiched Rectangles and pairing two together with washi tape.

I used 110 pound White card stock from Micheal's for the card base and frame along with the flowers.
 I am using Stampin UP ink in Lemon Lime Twist for the stems.

The frame is not glued down just laying on top for reference to get my stamping positioned right.

I am using the Hampton Art Stamp Perfect tool to help me.
 I used Brocade Blue ink for the flower part and the cordinating dies to cut them out using my Big Shot machine.

I will add demensional adhesive to the back of them.

I also glued three frames together to give dimension and look like a well frame.
Finished Card.

A terrible close up but there is nice subtle raised even dimension on the card.

Stained Glass Sympathy Card

I never really like making sympathy cards but we do need them at times and recently saw a video on this design and new I had just gotten in a die that was similar to the die in the video.

Here is the Video, CLICK HERE.

I also made a second one but that will be going into the mail for a friend as a hello card, same design but different image and sentiment.

I need to make more monochromatic watercolor panels, so many possibilities.

 I am staring off with some Strathmore watercolor paper that I have taped down to my mat.

I am doing so with a small border.

I will end up cutting the panel down and adhering it to anouther colored card stock card base.
 I am using little water for the stripes.

I am also going over them as they dry to intensify the color.


 This is an inexpensive water color pallet.

Not sure the brand or where I got it but I do know that I have not used it yet.

Until today.
 All done.

I let this dry for a little while before the next step.
 I am using some liqutex Titanium White paint to add some small splatters.
 I used this die from Simon Says Stamp called Dahlia Frame.

I cut it out four times with some Heavy Weight White card stock from Hobby Lobby.

I used my Gemini Junior cutting machine and only needed one pass threw to get perfect clean cuts.
 I also used some Stampin Up Sweet Sugar Plum card stock to just cut out the flower portion so that later I can inlay the flower.

I am also using this as my card base and I am making a top folding A2 card.
 I am using Simon Says Stamp Fine Detail Embossing Powder to stamp my sentiment which is also a stamp set from them called Tiny Words.

My Hampton Art Stamp Perfect Tool really helps with this since I used watercolor paper.

I was able to stamp twice just fine.
 I used Glossy Accents to fill in after I added the inlay pieces to the flower.

Tiny dabs of Tombow Mono Liquid glue to adhere the inlay pieces.
 Fun Foam with some double sided adhesive to give even raised dimension to my card.

Do not need a saggy card especially for a Sympathy one.
Finished card

 Close up/Side view.

Inside of card using a Hero Arts Stamp set that also has the prayers die with it if you want to use it in a different way.

CAS(E) this Sketch #133

I decided to play along with anouther Sketch Challenge and found and old but goodie, CAS(E) this Sketch #133.

This is an throwback to an Older Sketch.

Would you like to follow and play along, CLICK HERE.

For this card I am using Stampin up card stock and ink along with Stamps of Life stamps and dies.

 I cut the pot and two flowers out.
 Small amounts of Tombow Mono Liquid Glue to the flower.
 I used a small dot of Tombow Mono Liquid glue to ensure the enamel dot will stay put.
 Easy to make banners with a good pair of small scissors.

These banners are 1 inch and 3/4 inch wide.
 I added some foam adhesive to the flower watering pot.
  I used some removable adhesive to hold the card closed while I splatterd some Vintage Photo distress paint on the card front for some added interest and texture.
 I was in the Stamps of life Die Hard Club for almost 5 years, I had to stop in April due to moving to Alaska and help with finances.

I am hoping to re join soon.

This was my last club set and dies.
 There are 19 dies that go with this stamp set.
 This is the stamp set from Stamps of Life called garden2grow.
Finished card.

 Close up.

The back of the card and envelope.

I am using Hobby Lobby cream colored envelopes.
