Colorful day card with Sveta Fotinia

Hello everyone!

Today I'm here with very positive card! 
I used Paint Night stamp set (don't miss it until in stock, it's on sale now) with cute girl hanging a poster with a place for some message and I chose to put "Have a colorful day" one with a heart background.
I just stamped the girl and the sentiment with black ink and then took a Heart Duo Stencil and few inks in different colors to blend them through the stencil to create colorful background.
Then to make my card brighter I chose orange cardstock for a cardbase.

Hope you liked my card today! Have a colorful day ;)

Little Flower Patterns with Daria

Hello-hello Dear Friends,

Daria here. Today, I am playing with Grateful Heart stamp set and Delicate Dots background. 


Here you can find a little how-to video.


I had a couple of loosely water-coloured panels and decided to use those.

I took the small flower from  Grateful Heart stamp set and it in black all over the coloured panels I had. I tired to oriented it as leaves are on the greens and flower is on the pinks. I believe it is the fastest colouring possible.


I die cut the flowers with  coordinating dies, and placed them on stamped with Delicate Dots card-base.  As I predicted, I can't stop using the new rubber background stamp Delicate Dots. It's just perfect and love it.  

I also added a sentiment from  Typed Sentiments stamp set and placed on a banner from Skinny Stripes dies.


For my second card, I went with vertical design. I arrange the flowers, added a few leaves die-cut from gold glitter paper, and adhered everything with foam tape.


For the sentiment, I again took Typed Sentiments stamp set along with Skinny Stripes dies. A few enamel dots  from Sophisticated Enamel Dots set became a perfect finishing touch.

And there is a video for second card too. It will be available at our IGTV on Instagram.  Click here to find it.


Thanks so much for stopping by, hope you've liked those ideas and will give them a try.
Have a wonderful day,
D.

Subtle Images with Big Sparkle from Koren Wiskman


Hello everyone, Koren here today with a card project using the NEW Grateful Heart Stamp set. I wanted a subtle image that almost stays in the background to really allow some sparkle up front and I think I did that for this cute “thank you” card.

I also used the NEW Sophisticated Enamel Dots to spruce up the shine factor a bit more.

I started with my biggest focus on this card and that was the subtle background image. I originally wanted to paint this image with gouache but after several attempts I abandoned that medium and decided to go with some Faber Castel Polychromos Colored pencils instead. I just need more practice with painting before I tackle this image again with the gouache.

The colored pencils did the job for me though. I used hot pinks and greens on the images. I have created a Color Map for you to see the exact pencils I used but really I just picked shades that were similar and it worked out just fine. I tested each color on a spare piece of blue cardstock in order to make sure they would look ok.


I stamped the image using Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink, and I like how the images are subtle but still defined by the black lines.  This would also look great as a no line coloring.

Once the image was colored I took it to my Original MISTI and loaded it in along with the “thank you” sentiment from the same Neat & Tangled Grateful Heart Stamp Set. I stamped it with Nuvo Clear Mark Embossing Ink and used Nuvo Glitter Embossing Powder in Gold Enchantment to heat emboss it in the top center of my card panel. This embossing powder is so shiny. It has huge flecks of gold glitter in it that really makes it shine in person. I also love the texture that it gives the embossing powder. It looks great.

I loved that embossing powder so much that I decided to add more. I used a Ranger Embossing Pen to add sticky ink to the pistles inside my flower. I then used the same shiny gold embossing powder to enhance the image with a little heat embossing.



To add even more gold, I used a little bit of the Gansai Tambi Starry Nights watercolors set to flick gold splatter onto the panel. My splat box helps me contain a mess like this.

Once it was completely dry, I used the NEW Sophisticated Enamel Dots to bring out even more gold.  I guess to me when I look at the card, I see the pollen from the flower floating up to spell the sentiment. Maybe, I’m crazy, and thats ok too.

I added my panel to a Simon Says Stamp Fog card base cut to size A2 and scored in a top folding portrait orientation.  The panel is popped up using gray craft foam and Tonic Tear Tape Adhesive.

I hope I have inspired you to maybe try to combine subtle with a little pizazz. Sometimes the right combination of the two makes for a great time.

Fairies Find A Friend: Scene Card with Kelly Latevola

Hello Crafters! 

I hope you've been having an amazing weekend. Even though we're all back to school here and when I drove to work this morning it was 64 degrees I'm still trying to cling to summer. 

Thankfully cards help with that ha! 


I had fully intended to use these charming little fairies with the unicorn on my card when I started. However, I had zero plan to do a scene card. The background I originally conjured up in my mind didn't exactly pan out so I adapted. Honestly, this one is way better! 


I stamped out all my fairies in copic safe ink and got to work coloring with my Copic markers. My original game plan had a pink purple and blue sky so I stuck to those when coloring up my unicorn and fairies. 
The mane of the unicorn was colored with all three shades to create a fun gradient. When selecting colors from different families to blend make sure they are the same intensity. An easy way to do that with copics is to look at the last number on the lid. All my colors end in 4 indicating they are the same intensity. 


I drew my house to create my scene. I did use a ruler for the outline of the outside but I decided to wing it with the door and the window. I mean it's a fairy house, they probably didn't use levels, besides it's charming. I added some copic coloring and distress oxide ink blending to finish off the scene. 

You can watch the card from start to finish in the video below. 


I know it was a long one thanks for hanging in there! 
I love the added details of the white dots It looks like sparkle!


Thanks so much for stopping by! 
Enjoy the rest of your weekend :)
