Beautiful Mindset


Today I’m sharing a CAS card that I made using  Nesting Bird (KLM Digital Designs).  This image from KLM Digital Designs new August release comes with 3 beautiful sentiments “Create Your Own Sunshine” and “Hope You Have A Beautiful Day” and the one I’ve featured with my card. These sentiments and stamp could be used for an Inspirational or Birthday Card! I just love the feeling of peace that this image gives me.

The image and sentiment were printed out with my HP Printer onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using High Quality Grayscale. This prevents the image from smearing when you go to colour it in. The image and sentiment were die cut with my Cutttlebug and dies from Essentials by Tattered Lace Dies – Easel Slider. The base of the card is 5.5″ x 5.5″. I cut some Momenta – Cardstock at the same size. To go around the background paper and die cuts, a Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint marker was used. This helps give the illusion that it is mounted on gold paper. I adhered the background directly to the base card with glue so that I could move it into place easier.

The image was coloured in with Copic markers and for the eye of the bird a Sakura Glaze – Black pen was used. Then, the completed image was glued directly on top of the background. The sentiment was popped up with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. To finish off the card, some Kraftin’ Kimmie – Rainy Day Dots were added.

Never Grow Old!


Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Today, I’m sharing an anniversary card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called We Will Never – D19077. My husband has always been my best friend and we are often told that we are still kids at heart. So, this sentiment and stamp were the perfect combination for us.

 

To make this card I used a base card of 4.25″ x 5.5″. I die cut a heart out of Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my Cuttlebug and Sizzix Framelets by Stephanie Barnard – 562676 – Hearts Dotted. Then I stamped the image using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and my MISTI. I coloured in the image and background of the heart with Copic markers.

For the background, I used Stampin’ Up! – Have a Cuppa paper. I stamped the sentiment using Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink and my MISTI. I used Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder and then heat embossed the powder with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. I then coloured the top half with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Worn Lipstick and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough. Next, I edged around all of the background pieces with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough. I layered the centre background cardstock onto the base first and then the next 2 layers directly on top of it. Lastly, I popped up the image with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and added a few pop dots from Kraftin’ Kimmie.
