Happy Father’s Day

  • Stamps – Hero Arts “Hipster Animals” and “Father’s Day Message”
  • Dies –
    • Elizabeth Craft Designs “Beaded Circle Frames”
    • Spellbinders Nestabilities “Standard Circles Large”
  • Patterned paper – KaiserCraft “Mister Fox Collection”
  • Watercolor paper – Strathmore cold press
  • Cardstock – Bazzill
  • Ink pads – Versafine “Onyx Black” and “Satin Red”
  • Zig Clean Color markers

I stamped the bear and his accessories in Versafine ink. He’s quite dapper! I always like dressing up cute animals! That’s why it so appropriately fits the bill for Week 253 Challenge at Casology: Clothes. I added color to the bear and the stamped sentiment with Zig Clean Color markers and added water with a waterbrush to blend and soften the colors. I fussy-cut the bear (I have the dies, but wanted to layer the accessories directly to the same layer). I adhered it to the patterned circle die-cut, layered with the Beaded Circle Frame die-cut, with some dimensional adhesive. I trimmed the sentiment into a flag and layered on black cardstock strip. I placed all elements onto the card base to complete the card. Thanks for visiting.

Retro Sketch #179–and put a bird on it!

retrosketch-179-birdonit

  • Stamps –
    • Ranger/Dina Wakley Media “Scribbly Birds”
    • Printworks “Thank You”
  • Patterned papers – KaiserCraft “Outdoor Trail” 6-1/2″ paper pad
  • Ranger Distress inks – Squeezed Lemonade, Bundled Sage and Dried Marigold
  • Wood button – Prima Marketing
  • Enamel dots – Teresa Collins – Orange
  • Twine – Little B – Naturals
  • Cardstock – Bazzill
  • Kraft paper

I created this card with one of the cute bird images by Dina Wakley. First I applied Ranger Distress inks to the paper, blending the three colors in a somewhat random manner. Then I stamped the image onto the inked cardstock and cut it out. This background paper is spot varnished, so it has a real sheen to it (I think you can see it in the photo). I used the current challenge sketch at Retro Sketches (#179) and also will enter this in the Shopping Our Stash #217: Put a Bird on it! Using inspiration from the sketch to put this card together was pretty fun. Thanks for visiting today.


Bunnies to warm your heart

bunnies_friday_175

  • Stamps – Lawn Fawn “Snow Day” set
  • Patterned paper – KaiserCraft “Bluebelle Collection: Capri” (both sides)
  • Spellbinders Nestabilities – Standard Circles Large
  • Cardstock – Bazzill

This is a very simple card in which I used a number of images from the new Lawn Fawn “Snow Day” clear stamp set. I colored the bunnies with Copic Markers and edged the elements with Black Soot Distress Ink. I added a smattering of little stamped hearts from the same stamp set down the left side of the main panel to tie the heart theme up. This week’s Friday Mashup challenge (#175) is to create a card using animals, so here it is. Thanks for visiting.


Joy to All – 365 Cards Sketch Day 342

365-Sketch-Day342

  • Image and patterned paper – from KaiserCraft “St. Nicholas Collection”
  • Diecut from – Spellbinders Nestabilities “Resplendent Rectangles” die set
  • Stamp – Hero Arts “Joy to All”
  • Holly leaves satin trim – May Arts
  • Cardstock – Bazzill

I’ve been slow about posting my Christmas cards this week; I’m trying to finish them up. This card has a vintage look to it and I was inspired by a sketch at 365 Cards for Day 342. I really like the detail in the holly leaves on the May Arts trim–it adds a different texture to the card. I just cut some holly from a tree in the yard today, so I must be in a holly mood! Thanks for stopping by today.
