Last week, the Simplicity Sisters blog share a post with a trio of cards that I made. Here is a sneak peek…
I needed to make more than one Mother’s Day card as well as a birthday card so the trio of cards came to fruition.
I’ve got a birthday card to share today. I eked this card just in time for my husband’s birthday that we celebrated a few weeks ago…
The card was pretty simple to assemble. The panel was colored with red to pink hues of Distress Ink. I wanted to create a kind of ombre effect which was then splattered with water and then color spray. The image from Jazzy Cats (30-333) was colored with Prismacolor Pencils and the fussy cut. I adhered the image with foam tape on the panel. The sentiment was from Sweet Wishes (30-104). I added the panel on a white card base and voila!
Talk to you soon!
Today I’m sharing a card using a few new stamps I just received.
I wanted to highlight Pastoral (40-420). It’s such a simple yet gorgeous stamp. I first colored a watercolor paper panel with Wild Honey, Squeezed Lemonade and Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink to create a sunset effect. I then colored the stamp with different hues of Green Distress markers and then spritzed the image with water. I stamped the image on the panel. Once it was dry I wanted to add a few more images to complete the scene. I used an image from Soar (30-345). I only wanted to stamp the butterflies and colored each butterfly with a different hue of blue Distress markets. I did the same method of spritzing water and then stamped the image. To finish the card, I white embossed a sentiment from Sentiment Collection (30-350) on a black cardstock banner. I added a few clear gems to add texture.
This month flew by. Until April!
Today I have a birthday card to share. My dear friend (and soon to be sister-in-law) celebrated her birthday this week. I wanted to make something pretty and something to invoke her upcoming nuptials with my brother this summer.
I LOVE the stamp Reflection (40-218). It is so elegant and I wanted to color and cut. The image was stamped on Bristol paper and then watercolored with Inktense Watercolor Pencils. I fussy cut the image and trimmed it to size. The Deco Frame (51-125) die was cut from patterned paper. I die cut 2 more and adhered them behind the patterned paper cut to create thickness. The sentiment from Snippets (20-283) was stamped with Versamark ink on black cardstock and embossed with white EP. I set these pieces aside while I created the panel.
I wanted texture and decided to use Arcrylic paper as my panel. I lightly colored and blended Tattered Rose, Antique Linen, Pumice Stone and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. I then splattered water on the panel and splattered silver color spray. Once dried, I adhered the frame, stamped image and sentiment. I then added the panel using foam tape to a card base.
I’ve added this to the SSS Work it Wednesday January 2016 challenge. The Deco Frame die has its debut on this card.
Until next time!
