Rachelle Anne Miller is out with a new release today and it’s full of numbers! I chose to use the Two Bears (aff.link) stamp for a birthday card needed for later this month! It is quite handy to have numbers like these for cards for children and I will definitely make more!
I’ve stuck with keeping it simple and converted the big number two into a big balloon! A simple stipe on the side to add a splash of colour before putting the narrower coloured panel on top using foam tape makes up my card today.
I do my best to avoid making two cards looking the same. However, there is one exception. If someone wants one of my cards and then another one similar or identical, then I’ll do it. That is the case with this one. Someone wanted the pink version I made earlier this year, but also wanted it in a blue version for a boy. So here it is, using Rachelle Anne Miller’s Hanging Stars!
The text stamp, card base and inks are by MFT Stamps and I’ve used Copic Marker to colour up the image. As always, the enamel dots are by Altenew.
It’s time for another birthday card and this time I’ve got a dragon flying by to wish happy birthday! The dragon is by Mama Elephant and is coloured up with Copic as usual. I opted for a green and blue combo this time. The happy birthday die is by Lawn Fawn. I cut off the “to you” part and coloured it in colours matching the dragon. To finish it off I used a turquoise card base and three enamel dots to match the letters.
Time for a colourful and fun card! I’ve used three of the party selfie stamps from MFT Stamps and coloured them up in matching colours. The card base is also from MFT Stamps onto which I’ve stamped various sentiments and some confetti. The lion is added on with foam tape and I’ve coloured up chipboard numbers to match.
I’ve entered this card into the following challenge:
I have, for the very first time this week, watched a cardmaking video! In fact I have now watched three. This past month I’ve been colouring daily and my days have been super busy so I decided to take some time out for myself and make some cards without coloured images. Online Cardmaking Classes, hosted by Jennifer McGuire and Kristina Werner, have a new course out called Crushing on Cardstock. As a late joiner with very limited time on my hands I have no goal of watching all the videos and trying all the various techniques before the initial period is up. I have however set myself a goal of 5 cards. Today I will show you the first three, they are all part of the first day of lessons.
First up I want to show you the card I made after watching Caly Person’s video. It’s all about paper weaving. I used three different turquoise coloured papers by MFT Stamps and made score lines in them for interest. I then used a Papirdesign die together with an embossed Mathia Design sentiment. Finally I added three butterflies made from La-La Land Crafts dies.
Next up is a card I made after watching Cathy Zielsky’s video. This one is about stripes. I’ve cut the stripes from five different MFT Stamps cardstock and as I don’t have the item she uses to line them up I’ve done it the old fashioned way by gluing them on with foam tape and hoping they line up nicely. It worked better than I feared when I started! The sentiment and enamel dots are by Altenew.
And the final one I have to show you is the first I made, after watching a cardmaking video for the first time. The video was by Kristina Werner. Here it’s all about making patterns with paper strips. I opted for a blue and grey combination using paper from MFT Stamps. The dies used are from La-La Land Crafts and MFT Stamps. The sentiment is made from chipboard which I coloured in to mix and a printed sentiment from Simon Says Stamp.
