Happy Friday – The Crafty Nurse here with a card using Sugar Sketch #27 with a Tiddly Ink digital image called, “My Super Boy.” The paper is Simple Stories “DIY Boutique” with dies from Lawn Fawn (journaling card), My Favorite Things (circles), and Paper Trey Ink (Stars). I finished off with stickers from Lily B.
Happy Monday! This Cards in Envy Challenge will focus on Puppies! We all love those cuddly creatures. For our challenge, please make sure your card fits into a standard A2 card without any large lumps or bumps. The challenge will run through Sunday, March 1st and our design team will be choosing their favorites to feature on the blog.
My card features a Tiddly Inks puppy called “Flying High”. I colored him with copics which I highlighted with Uniball Signo White Pen. The design paper and sentiment is American Crafts and the stitched panel is My Favorite Things.
Come on over and let us see your sweet puppies.
It’s Tuesday and time for a Try Stampin’ on Tuesday Challenge. This week is a little different over at the blog and instead of a card, we’d love for you to create a project. It can be anything, except a card. Think out of the box and create something fun. For example, you can make a treat bag, a costume, home decor, a canvas, a journal page, how about baking a cake or cookies? Use the theme to really use your creativity and make us something fun.
For inspiration I’ve chosen to make a journal page for you. I started by painting the page with gesso, then applied a combination of Dina Wakley Blackberry Violet and Magenta. I then cut out the ghosts with a bigz Sizzix die and the bat from Paper Smooches. The digital image is from Tiddly Inks and colored with copic markers. I hand painted the tree with a few shades of browns and black then I spritzed the entire page with Tim Holtz Distress marker in Black Soot, WHICH WAS MY MISTAKE. This is water based and when I went to collage the page, it smeared from heck to high water. You can see where there are black smears I couldn’t get it all off, but I don’t think it’s horrible. I sure wish I remembered not to use collage medium over water markers. GRRR. For future reference, I saw Tim use a sharpie to make black splats on a journal page when wet medium was going to be applied afterwards. The only other issue I had was the moon. I should have laid it down before I made the tree, but didn’t. I also couldn’t find my masking fluid, so I painted over the tree and then filled the tree back in with brown, allowing for the moon to recess into the background.
Quick card today using the Deconstructed Sketch 166 and a Tiddly Inks digital image colored with Copics. The paper is from an older We R Memory Keepers pack and some Glitz gems.
Card is based on Seize the Sketch #24 using Tiddly Inks image colored with Copics on doodlebug “take note” 6 x 6 paper. I stamped background with Friends stamp in Hero Arts Soft Stone and hand penned a frame with Copic 0.3. “You” sentiment is Lawn Fawn “Milo”.
