Hello lovelies and happy Monday! First of all I´m sorry that I haven´t been posting so much the past days, but I have been very busy preparing videos and projects for later this month for you to see.
See, I´m preparing for a surgery, so I´m also trying to get my blog up to date with something to share BEFORE I go in.
But I am stopping by to share a card with you today too. This one fits today´s theme – a card for saying sorry. I used a pre-printed Project Life card as my card background and then stamped the funny creature onto white cardstock and colored it with watercolour pencils. After fussy cutting it and die cutting the alphas I just adhered everyting on place and the card was done.
I really like how this card turned out! I´ll be sharing a mixed media project on Sunday, so do stop by, if you want to see that :).
Hello everyone and happy Sunday! Today I´m sharing a set of baby cards with you. In between of creating for my design team assignments, I also try to sneek in some stash busting projects and this is one of them.
See, on this card set I´ve used quite old pre-dry-embossed card bases from my older stash. I wanted to make them look a little bit more colorful so I inked the dry-embossed areas with Distress Inks in blue, pink and yellow tones and then started rreating the cards from there.
I then added a ribbon bow onto each card – I have so much ribbon stored in my studio! You really have no idea.. So cards are a good way to bust that pile a bit.
This card had a pink organza ribbon going across the card. On top of that I added a polka dotted paper (available at Elizabeth Craft Designs – see product links at the end of this post) and a stamped Stampin´ Up banner sentiment. I inked the sentiment in the same Disttress Ink tone that I used for the background. The little monster/creature in the middle of the card is a stamp by Starving Artistamps. They have the cutest creature stamps!! I bought those stamps years ago and still love using them!
The image is colored with a water tank brush and Tonic Studios Nuvo Watercolour Pencils. I also added googly eyes to the image for a fun detail. And the tiny heart, well it´s a negative piece/leftover from this card. I saved them and am now using them everywhere :). Talk about recycling leftover pieces!!
And on the yellow card I did the same steps, except the paper on the background is by Magnolia and I used another Stampin´ Up sentiment and an old Close To My Heart giraffe for stamping.
The blue card is the same, like the pink one, just in blue tones.
That´s it for today. I hope you enjoyed this stash busting project. There is still so much stash to be busted 😉 that I will probably need to make these a regular posting theme here on the blog..
