Online Card Classes Mask-erade (Card 3)

This is my last card for tonight, I am just on my way out for a fun Curry and Music night with friends! I hope to spend the weekend playing along and catching up on the first few days of class techniques.

This was using the same technique as my previous card, and I love the stained glass look that this creates.

Stencils: My Favorite Things
Stamps: Penny Black
Ink: Versamark, Distress Inks
Other: Sequins, twine, Wendy Vecchi translucent embossing paste, embossing powder

Online Card Classes Mask-erade (Card 2)

Back again :)

This time sharing my first card using the technique shared by Kristina Werner on Day 2 of the Mask-erade Online Card Class. This was created using translucent embossing paste mixed with three different colours of distress inks. The sentiment portion was masked using a circle die in the centre to leave space for stamping on.

Online Card Classes Mask-erade (Card 1)

Hello folks!

I hope to be sharing a few cards with you in the coming weeks as I am currently taking part in the Online Card Class - Mask-erade as well as the new Daily Marker Colour Challenge which starts on Monday!

First up I have a card using a technique shared by Jennifer McGuire on Day 2 of the Mask-erade class. To create this card I die cut a mask using a heart die, and placed the outside of the mask on my card allowing me to stamp within the heart shape. I kept the rest of the card simple with just a sentiment and a couple of embellishments.

Stamps; Avery Elle and Simon Says Stamps
Ink: Hero Arts Shadow Ink and Versafine black
Die: My Favorite Things
Other: Doodlebug sprinkles, stitching

Just Add Ink Challenge #264 - Sketch Challenge

Hello friends!

This week over at Just Add Ink we have a fun sketch challenge for you from DT girl Kim :)

I have kept my card very clean and simple this week, using an adorable new stamp set from My Favorite Things. I'm pretty sure this would probably pass for a masculine card too, which is something I hardly ever make! 

Stamps: My Favorite Things 'You Gnome Me'
Dies: My Favorite Things 'You Gnome Me', My Favorite Things Blueprints 24, My Favorite Things Fishtail Flags
Other: Copic Markers

Howdy Card - for The Scrapbook Store

For this week’s card over on The Scrapbook Store's Blog,  I decided to have a go at the ‘no line’ water colour technique that I have seen used a lot lately. It was a lot of fun and I’m already planning my next project using this technique.howdy
Since I was water colouring I used mixed media cardstock and started by stamping the pots in antique linen distress ink, before masking them and stamping the cactus over the top in crushed olive and mowed lawn ink. I wanted this light so I inked up my stamp and then stamped off once onto some scrap paper before stamping onto my cardstock.
Once they were stamped I used my water brush and distress inks to water colour the image, adding more colour as I went. When I was finished I stamped the greeting in black ink and cut the image using a die cut from My Favorite Things. I also added a little die cut heart which I coated with some glossy accents.
I used two shades of green cardstock behind the image to complete the card and added some twine and ribbon along with a heart charm to finish it off.howdy closeup
