There is an Instagram happening over the weekend and I got to play with some of Wow!’s great embossing powders together with Picket Fence Studios (all links are affiliate links) products. I opted for cutting out the Big Beautiful Dragonfly. I covered it in Wow!’s Embossing Pad and then used the Grape Fizz from the Twinly Fizz Wow! Trio. The original die was cut out in white and this shows just how well the coverage is. I love it!
To make it stand out, I’ve used the A2 Pierced Blanket Cover Plate die and used some darker blue card stock. The sentiment is from the Early Tulips stamp set and it is embossed with Wow!’s Polished Silver. It is super shiny and looks great! I’ve used sequins from the following three mixes: Black Tie Affair, Rainbow and A Classic Christmas.
I’m in a giraffe mood at the moment! They are such fun to colour up! Here I’ve used Giraffe Hug from RAM Stamps to make a baby card. I’ve die cut the coloured paper with a cloud die and then used a winter themed paper in the background. Various snowflake dies were used to add to the winter theme and then I stacked several die cut letters on top of each other to make the name pop out. A small banner with the date on was put underneath.
Hi all. It’s been a hectic start to the month, but now I’m back on crafting track again. I have loads of cards to show you and first off is this one using Mo’s Digital Pencil’s lovely Prom S stamp. I’ve made the stamp larger so I could crop it and then did a no-line colouring of her.
Today’s card features a Lili of the Valley stamp and I’ve made it yellow and cheerful. The sweet bear is coloured up with Copic markers and I didn’t go as heavy on the contrasts today as I usually do. You can find the stamp in their Etsy shop here.
The background paper is by Waffle Flower and the sentiment by Mathia Design. For fun I decided to draw in a border around the coloured panel.
My second entry for this years MFT Stamps‘ Superstar contest is for the colouring category. I’ve been unsure if I was going to have the energy for this as I’ve been unwell most of this month so far, the past week and a half with a nasty cold and a cough that simply will neither let go nor let me sleep. Oh how I am looking forward to it disappearing!
Anyway, here I am with my finished project. I had an idea which I think fits with the last year. How some people make a difference and make your life more colourful. So the front is coloured in black and white, the first page inside is the same image, but in colour, and then it’s a normal greeting area inside with the text “You Make Everyday Life Feel Special”. I have combined various sets from the Birdie Brown and Stacey Yacula collections for the scene.
Here is the front of the card. I have used scissors to cut a small tab at the bottom which I embossed a small greeting onto. I’ve also used chunky embossing to create snow on the image.
Here is the flip inside with the coloured image. I’ve added “snow” to this panel as well as another sentiment:
And the page inside with the greeting:
Here are the two coloured panels before I made the card:
