I have a lot of cards to post…

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!

Out of this World

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).

Hope you like this one!

Pop-up Butterfly

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).

The front features SU ‘Butterfly Beauty’ thinlits (new for 2019 – I think).

Inside features Lawn Fawn ‘Pop-up Butterfly’. I used a little ink on the wings to give them a little more color. The sentiment is from the Stampendous set ‘Birthday Wish’.
