Bad Influence Birthday Card | Honey Bee Stamps


Bad Influence Birthday Card | Honey Bee Stamps

Hello Friends!

I hope you all are doing well. Seeing that most of us are under quarantine these days, I figured this card was very appropriate for the times. I don't know about you all but I am a stress eater, so needless to say I have probably not been making the best diet choices these days, combined with the fact that besides going to work the exercise that my body is getting is a lot less. Thus I fear the quarantine 15 may be true! If you had been following me during Kathy Racoosin's Coloring Challenge you would have seen this little piggy on Day 30 in my stories. So let's talk about the rest of the card.

CARD DETAILS

To begin I stamped out all the images below from the BAD INFLUENCE and the PIECE OF CAKE set onto Neenah paper and then colored them in using Copic Markers. I then used the coordinating BAD INFLUENCE DIES and the PIECE OF CAKE DIES to cut them out. To the images, I added white gel and shimmer details using gel pens and then added glossy accents to the piggy's nose and hooves, and the icing on the cakes.

While the glossy accents dried I then created the background. I used Atelier Inks to blend out the blue of the sky and then used the RADIANT BACKGROUND STENCIL to add the yellow rays in the background. For the grass, I used the GRASS BORDER DIE to cut out a layer for the bottom part of the card and then blended out the green ink and distresses it with water droplets.

Next, I stamped out the sentiments from the BAD INFLUENCE set and then started to piece all the layers of the card together.

For a finishing touch, I added the tiny little hearts from the yellow package of the RAINBOW DELUXE SEQUIN SET along the sun rays.

I hope this card provided you with some inspiration and smiles today, cause I really don't want to be a bad influence on you all. I hope you are all well and hopefully taking better care for yourself than I am, although I have to say I have used my treadmill a lot more in the past few weeks then I have in the last year. Stay healthy and safe my friends, and maybe slow down on all the baked goods, lol! Stop baking and make more cards, they have no calories ;)

Thank you for stopping by 😊
Until next time... Happy Crafting πŸ‘‹

Altenew 6th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 3 + Giveaway


Metallic Leaf Clusters Stamp Set | Slimline Cards Altenew 6th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 3 + Giveaway

Hello Everyone! Today I am so honored to be participating in Altenew's 6th Anniversary Blog Hop, so welcome to Day 3! If you came from Sveta Fotinia's Blog you are on the right track, but if not please start at the Altenew Blog. You can find the complete hop list below.


In celebration of these past six years, Altenew is hosting a special four-day blog hop! With four days, you know there is going to be so much Altenew inspiration heading your way from many talented designers! There are also prizes up for grabs and even a shipping discount code. All these details will be listed at the bottom of this post.

CARD DETAILS

Both of my cards today feature one of my favorite sets from Altenew which is the LEAF CLUSTER stamp set.

For this first card, I wanted to play with the METALLIC WATERCOLORS and so I thought they would look cool on black cardstock and you know what I was right, I love the look!

So first I stamped out the LEAF CLUSTERS using white pigment ink and then I went back and colored the leaves using the metallic ink.

I then stamped out a sentiment from the SENTIMENT STRIPS stamp set onto black paper and heat set it using white embossing powder. I then trimmed it and glued it onto a white strip to give it a border.

To finish I added splatters using colors I had used on the leaves. Love the results of the metallic color contrast on the black cardstock. I can't wait to use these inks again!

For this next slimline card, I used the LEAF CLUSTERS set again, but this time I used them on white watercolor paper and used the TROPICAL FIESTA WATERCOLOR BRUSH MARKERS to create a no-line loose watercolor look.

To create this look, I first stamped out the leaves using Fadeout Ink. I then used the watercolor markers to add color to each leaf. Once everything was colored (and here is the scary part) I sprayed the entire panel with a light mist of water to allow the ink to move and let that dry. I also added a light wash of blue while the paper was still wet.

Once it was dry I went back and added more pigment to certain areas that faded too much.

Next, I stamped out the friend from the MEGA GREETINGS 3 stamp set and heat set using gold embossing powder. I finished the greeting by adding a strip along the entire panel using a sentiment from the BUILD A FLOWER STARGAZER stamp set and added some gold pearl embellishments.

Spring Inspired Rainbow Cards | Spellbinders April 2020 Glimmer Hot Foil Kit of the Month


Spring Inspired Rainbow Cards | Spellbinders April 2020 Glimmer Hot Foil Kit of the Month

Hello sweet friends, hope you all are well! I trust that if you are a crafter you probably haven't left the craft room πŸ˜…

Today I have a few Spring inspired rainbow cards to share with you featuring the Spellbinders April 2020 Glimmer Hot Foil Kit of the Month. The kit includes Celebrate the Day and the Special Months Glimmer Foil Set which coordinate perfectly with the Truckin Through the Seasons Die if you already have that. I did not, so I got creative with my designs.

CARD DETAILS

This first card was super simple to make. I began by foiling the "hello" from the Hello Dear Friend Glimmer Hot Foil Plate and Die Set followed by the "APRIL" from the Special Months Set onto a piece of purple cardstock.

I used the Speckled Prism Glimmer Hot Foil Roll to foil onto the paper using the HOT FOIL SYSTEM. I then glued strips of colored cardstock to create a rainbow gradient on the left side of the card. And finished it off by adding some iridescent bubbles. I think this card would be great for a friend named April or even as a friendship card to give out this month.

For the second card, I created a foiled background by using the Fall Flora Dies from a previous Large Die of the Month Club kit. I love how you can use any metal dies to create designs using foil! I then blended out a rainbow gradient of color using Atelier Inks.

For the sentiment again I used the Speckled Prism Glimmer Hot Foil Roll to foil onto black cardstock using a plate from the Celebrate the Day set. I then mounted that sentiment strip onto a piece that I completely covered with the foil to create a border around the sentiment.

To embellish, I added some clear confetti and a tiny sparkle to the center of the flowers using a gel pen.

I hope you got some inspiration from these Spring inspired rainbow cards. If you are interested in signing up for the monthly Glimmer Hot Foil Kit of the Month click HERE for all the details.
