Thus, I´ll keep today´s post short and wish you all a lovely week! It should get really nice temperatures here this week – so much looking for sunshine and flowers. At least something nice to look forward to!!!
Hello and happy Sunday! I´d love to share a fun card idea with you that will always result in unique backgrounds that will never ever be the same!
Just grab a pile of stencils and your gel plate and create backgrounds with them! Take pastel colours for a softer look or go crazy with colour, like I did here! A red and yellow acrylic paint combination is a bold one :).
And then after finishing a few backgrounds, just grab some stamps and clear stickers (or rub-ons) and finish off your card. For this one I used my Peacock Feathers stencil with the Bloom Doodles stamp set and Hey Sunshine! clear stickers.
And while you grab your gel plate (mine is by Gelli Arts, by the way), make sure you make several prints at one sitting. That way you will have a bigger pile of prints ready and waiting for you, when you need a quick and fun card or when card-creating inspiration hits you.
By picking more toned down colours the overall look of the card totally changes. So just go with the colours you (or the card recipient) like :).
Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I´m again stopping by to share my next faces drawn on tags for my personal #100daysoffaces 2021 challenge. If you want to see them go live every day, then you should follow my Instagram account for the daily posts. I´ll share them here on my blog in groups with links to the videos.
This tag is die cut from white carstock with a STAMPlorations tag die and I´ve added a hue of indian ink as a stripe on it. After that I just drew the face with Posca´s very quickly and added some shading.
For this tag I´ve again used white cardstock, then die cut it with a STAMPlorations tag die (see product list at the end of this post) and applied green and yellow spray ink onto it. The faces are again drawn and coloured with Posca pens.
This tag is die cut from a woodgrain paper and then covered partly with white gesso. On top of that I´ve sketched a face with a pencil and added shadows with a black Posca.
For this tag I´ve firs played with my gel plate from Gelli Arts with acrylic paints and my stencils. Next I´ve drawn a face with Neocolor 2 pens. The splatters were added with a water tank brush in the end.
This is a grey cardstock paper, die cut with a STAMPlorations tag die. Then painted partly with black paint and after that drawn and coloured using Neocolor 2´s again.
As always, go and see the short videos for each tag on my YouTube channel. You´ll find the link to a particular tag always immediately under the photo. Hope you enjoy them!
For the first card above I´ve used Distress Oxides in two tones on the background to stamp the repeated leaf pattern. On top of that is a Gelli Arts gelli printed acrylic image, where I´ve used the second leaf pattern from the stamp set, when gelli printing. You hopefully can see a hint of that pattern in the green and blue toned paint circle. I´ve then die cut the piece with a circle die cut die and added a doilie die cut piece underneath it and decorated the circle with Clear Stickers (also by STAMPlorations) and added a few older American Crafts paper flowers for additional decor. Now, yellow is one of my favorite colours, so I´m happy I could use them for this card.
For the second card (above) I´ve added a repeated stamping pattern with the heart stamp from the same stamp set using Distress Oxide stamp inks. The circle in the middle is again done with a gel plate (I´ve used the confetti stamp there, but I doesn´t show that much due to my colour choices). A die cut doilie underneath and again a Clear Sticker as a sentiment and two older American Crafts paper flowers for decor. This, by the way would make a great Mother´s Day card, too. So I might just use it for that purpose later :).
The last card I done using the same leaf stamp, like on the first card, but this time I used primary colours. The little red half circles are from the same stamp set and add a nice detail to the background. For a focal point I´ve added some older stickers, just because they perfectly match the colour comtination on the background, and decorated the circle stickers with Clear Stickers from STAMPlorations and a few buttons from my older stash.
The Art Marks 3 stamp set can be used to create nice card background and by changing to colour the look will always be different! I really love this stamp set for it´s versatility. It´s also perfect for tagmaking, art journal pages and anything mixed media – not only cardmaking. I hope I could inspire you with my cards today.
Hello everybody and happy Tuesday! Today I´m again very excited to share my Studio Tekturek September project (and video) with you!! I really love how it turned out and totally adore the candy colours of the Strawberry Shake collection!!
This is the page I did! I had such a great time creating it. The colours might say summer, but I think they work so very well for many other themes and seasons too. Like everyday scrapbooking themes :)!
I´ve again recorded a video for you to watch. It shows the whole process from start to finish. I hope you enjoy watching it :).
Basically almost everything on this layout is from the Studio Tekturek Strawberry Shake collection, except for some embellishments and the Distress Inks, stamps, as well as the white paper.
