Lots of Strips Card with Daria

Hello-hello Awesome People!

Daria here. This morning, I had quite an experiment. I went life over instagram to assemble this card. It was my first experience in life streaming, so I was quite nervous. But, I wanted to share with you the process, so you may find it as an IGTV video. Thanks so much for everyone who could join and support me. For my card, I am using  Grateful Heart stamp and Skinny Strips die set.


I started with die cutting lots of banner shapes with Skinny Strips die set from white, coloured and gold copper cardstock. Paper comes from Over The Rainbow Assorted Cardstock Pack and from Gold metallic cardstock.


I arranged the stripes over a card base and glue some of them with glue tape and some with foam tape. This gives different levels of dimensions.


I stamped the flower cluster from Grateful Heart stamp in black and glue its parts over my background. The sentiment is from Butterfly Beauties stamp set, stamped over one of the banners i made earlier.  As a finishing touch, I have added a few sequins in Crystal Clear. 


Thanks so much for stopping by, and see you next time,
xoxo,
D.

Hello You with Hearts with Cheiron Brandon

Hi there crafty friends, it's Cheiron here with a fun little Hello You card filled with love! Today, I revisited a classic Neat and Tangled set, Hello You (which is now on sale with a bunch of other amazing stamps while they last).  I took the heart from the set and stamped in over and over in different colors of Distress Ink to make a background panel. I don't know about you, but this kind of stamping is so relaxing for me.


I worked my way from the left to the right side of the panel in rainbow order (of course) and then spritzed the entire panel with some Tsukineko Shimmer Spray in Sparkle and dried the panel with a Ranger heat tool.


Once the panel was dry, I put it in a stamp positioner and stamped the Hello You greeting in Jet Black Archival Ink. A fun a simple card and an easy way to send a hello card with a lot of heart. There are some other shapes in this set too (stars, bubbles) so you could mix it up and have different color combos for anyone on your list :)

Watercolor Skies, Day and Night with Kelly Latevola

Hello Crafters! 
I hope you guys have been having an amazing week! The weather here has been in the 80's with blue 
skies and it's like Summer has arrived. Whoo hoo! 
I have two cards for you today that are the same but different. 


You guys know I love a scene card. A good scene can completely change the entire look or
feel of a stamp. Today I decided to use the same stamp set and layout to create two sky scenes. 
One during the day and one at night. 

For our blue skies and clouds card I started by wetting my entire piece of watercolor cardstock. I started with a much bigger piece than I needed so that way I can pick which area came out the best and trim that portion down for my card base. 

I started adding in some blues slowly letting them bloom into the water. Once I dropped the color in I didn't manipulate it too much more. I find I like my result much better when I let the water do the work. 


I left lots of white spaces to act as clouds in the sky. I think clouds offer a much more interesting blue sky. I continued adding in blue and eventually a little bit of purple until I was happy with the intensity. Remember watercolors dry back lighter than how they look when they are wet. 

To complete the scene I added in a few greens and teals at the bottom to act as very loose tree tops as our goose and fairy fly by. 


For the night scene I also covered my entire watercolor paper in water but I added color everywhere. Sounds lovely doesn't it? :) I laid down pinks, purples and blues but your night sky can be any colors you want. This is our base layer of color. We're going to paint right over it bur don't worry you'll still be able to see some of the colors. Yep, paint that black right over it. I did one layer but you can add as many layers as you like for a more opaque look. 


The part that makes the magic happen is the stars. I used white acrylic paint but a more traditional watercolor medium is gouache. Use whichever you're more comforatable with. I use a stiff bristle brush to spatter my paint and press it against the side of an acrylic block or my finger in this case because I couldn't find a block. 

I used the paint in varying consistencies for different brightness levels. The straight paint spattered off the brush is by far the whitest. 


Both images were colored in copic markers and die cut with their matching dies. They were colored in the same colored scheme but slightly differently to reflect their enviornment. 

Both the stamps and dies are on sale here for super cheap if you love them too! What's super cheap? You can snag the stamp set for less than $5 and both of them for $12.00

Thanks for dropping by! I hope you found something inspiring!
