OCC – Day 4

I’m a bit slow to post this up on the blog here, it’s been on my Instagram since it was made, though. This is from Day 4 of the Online Card Classes – a smaller card making course focusing on card stock which I took at the end of August. This card here is made after watching Debby’s video.

I’ve used a Snip Art stencil with acrylic paint for the background, the chipboard is also from there, I believe. Dies by Honey Bee, La-La Land Crafts and Precious Marieke as well as a sentiment stamp by Mathia Design and some enamel dots by Altenew.

It was quite a fun card to make, even if it was a bit challenging to try to layer up the dies for dimension and placing them in a way I thought would look nice. In the end I’m really pleased with the result, so don’t be surprised if you see more similar cards in the future!

LLLC: Make a wish

For our La-La Land Crafts project this week we were to use background stamps and stencils. I’ve used two different background stamps and one of the stencils along with two of the clear stamp sets for my project. You can find a list of all the products at the bottom of this post. I’ve used various distress inks for the background stamps, and the circles were embossed. I finally found my embossing mat. I wonder how many years it is since I last used it.. could be as many as 4 or 5 and then I think I only used it a couple of times. I’ll try to do better at embossing like that from now on!

Here is another photo, a bit closer, so you can see the embossed circles better.

Pink Azalea

Another clean and simple card from me today. This time I’ve made a card using one of the flower stamps from Power Poppy. I had a bit of a accident with my copics right at the end when colouring it up, a big massive near-black coloured blob. I managed to fix it, mostly, and then I fussy cut the image. The background it something I made using one of the pink distress oxide inks and a heart stencil, and the text stamp is by Huldra Designstudio.

LLLC: Funky Squares

Ok, I admit it, I’ve used my favourite colours a lot for this NEW RELEASE at La-La Land Crafts. Soooo, it is time to bring in the other colours, I think. How about… a rainbow?!

Here I have used both of the stencils that were included in the set at the same time. I simply used some masking tape to tape them onto the card base so they wouldn’t move around too much. I then used various different distress ink colours going from a red and all through the rainbow over to purple.

To make Summer Dress Molli match (with what I think is a super cool background!) I gave her a two-tone dress going from purple to yellow highlights. To keep with the funky squares theme I used the fishing net die as well. And to add a bit more of the purple and yellow, I decided to make the banners in those colours in bright shades.
