Time for another mini-slimline card. I seem to have a thing for those at the moment and today I’m going to share a purple one! It is one of MFT’s Holiday Penguins who is out to play today. The purple water colour background paper and the simple “everything” stamp is also by My Favorite Things. I’ve used a massive snowflake by Waffle Flower and both the mini slim line frame die and the word merry are by Lawn Fawn.
As I wrote in the other post: I’ve had fun playing with inks and stencils for the new Picket Fence Studios (this and all following links are affiliate links). Here I’ve used the same purple inks to ink blend the background, as I really liked how it turned out for the other card! I’ve added some water splatter this time, though. I did make sure I had a white border around it this time.
First I covered up the moon to keep the back of it nice and white before using a pale ink to colour in the shadows of it using the Haunted Moon blending stencil. Then I used the Flying Witch A2 stencil, but masked out the other parts to only use the witch itself. And then I selected a few of the bats from the Bat Crazy 6×8 stencil and masked out the surrounding ones to make the bats look like singles. I love that they have different shapes.
For the sentiment I used the alphabet dies from the older Double Stitched Rectangle Dies set. I cut it out a few times and then stacked them to give them some dimension before gluing them on in a rather wonky way. Then I wrote in the other words to go with before added a few stars from the Pumpkin Patch sequin mix at the end.
A side on view that shows the word spooky raised from the paper so they kind of look like they are floating.
And then a close up photo as well.
Apparently, it’s that time of the year again. MFT Stamps Superstar time! With the whole family off sick, I nearly missed the whole thing. Thankfully there were a few hours left!
For my Coloring Virtuoso entry this year I wanted to do something different, so I’ve stuck with just one stamp set, the Being with You stamp set by Stacey Yacula. I’ve done a full panel colouring with dark and bright colours using my Copic markers, and I’ve made a wedding card using a sentiment from Itty Bitty Basics. It can be for two men, two women or one of each. That’s what’s great about these stamps. Love is love.
The card has been entered into the following challenge:
I’m back with another card for Mo’s Digital Pencil’s design team this week because I really wanted to make a Halloween card this year using this adorable image. It is called My Boo. I decided to cut off the lower part of the stamp and draw a border around the image this time. A matching card base, some enamel dots and a sentiment from La-La Land Crafts finished off the look.
It is world cardmaking day today so I wanted to make a card for that very reason. It’s a pretty simple card, without colouring, in white with a dash of purple. I’ve done what I enjoy about cardmaking for this card (apart from the whole no colouring part of it). I’ve used loads of brands, I’ve been inspired by another crafter (Norine Borys, @norinehope on Instagram) and it’s about friendship.
The embossing folder is by CraftWell, the dies by Simon Says Stamp, the sentiment by GinaK Design, card stock by Papertrey Ink and My Favorite Things and the inks are by My Favorite Things and GinaK Design.
