I have not been active on this website in over a year but I have still been crafting. I am working on getting up-to-date on card photos and then maybe I will show a peek at my newly designed craft room (yes, I changed it again).
Here are a few cards for now…
Happy Anniversary card for my parents. This card was with a Theroweb|Unity toner card. I foiled it using the Minc in a Brutus Monroe foiled called “Purple Sketch” and then colored the flowers with Copic markers. It is bordered by a purple mirror card by Craft Perfect.
Birthday card! It is impossible to see it in the photo but the main design is bordered with a white glitter cardstock. There is also glitter on the candle. Cupcake is a die set by My Favorite Things and scalloped frame is a die by Lawn Fawn. The ‘Sweet Wishes’ stamp came from Stampin’ Up’s “Hello Cupcake” set. I will be making more in this style soon!
This card is for my son’s friend who is having his 6th birthday! I mixed Lawn Fawn and Queen & Co. products to make this shaker card and Ranger Distress Oxides to make the background.
I made the galaxy background a long time ago so I am not sure the colors of Distress Oxides I used but I applied them using an oval blending brush to black card stock. I applied a speckling of VersaMark with Brutus Monroe Milky Way embossing powder and speckled it with white paint. You can see a video tutorial of my methods here. I used Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangle die to cut it out.
For the earth, I started with a piece of white card stock cut with a large stitched circle die by Rubbernecker Stamps. I used the Distress Oxide colors Pine Needles, Salty Ocean and Ground Espresso to make rough land and ocean forms. I used a small amount of Brutus Monroe Alabaster white pigment ink for the top to hopefully make it look like the Arctic. I speckled it with white paint for visual interest.
The sentiment is a mix of two Lawn Fawn Sets. “HOPE YOUR DAY IS” is from Reveal Wheel Sentiments and “OUT OF THIS WORLD” is from the set called Out Of This World. I cut the sentiment using Lawn Fawn Extra Sentiment Banners and layered it on top of another banner in solid black.
Lastly, The Rocket is from Queen & Co.’s Space shaker kit and is filled with Queen & Co. ‘Rubble’ style toppings. I used Craft Perfect satin silver card stock for most of the rocket and a sparkly red card stock for the flame.
I accented the card with some iridescent star gems that I’ve had hanging out in my embellishment drawer for a while (so I have no idea where they came from).
This butterfly card was made using a combination of Stampin’ Up! Lawn Fawn and Stampendous products. Ink used was Stampin’ Up! in ‘Bermuda Bay’ and paper was also SU (Very Vanilla, Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant).
