Projects

Today I made three card projects and filmed a video showing how to create two cards from start to finish. I’m hoping you’ll enjoy it. Watch it below or in HD at my YouTube channel.

A Cup of Thanks

The moment I saw the A Cup Of Thanks stamp set, I knew I just had to color it up. I decided to create a bright card with bold colors.

I started by stamping the image and trimming the front card panel and fussy cutting the cup with  Tim Holtz scissors on the edge of the trimmed off part. (Please watch the video) I used my Zig markers to color the image and a background.

To make my card more attractive I drew stripes on a card base using the black marker. Then I mounted the panel onto a card base. I added a sentiment, white embossed on black, several sequins and made some accents with Wink of Stella brush pen.

You’re So Sweet

The flowers in this set are really gorgeous and elegant! I decided to create two cards using them. I was in the mood for watercoloring, and the florals from You’re so Sweet Stamp set were perfect.

So, for my first card I used Winsor&Newton watercolors and Watercolor Paper. My coloring process you can see in the video.

I decorated the card with gorgeous Studio Katia Midnight Blue Crystals.

And my last card is a clean and simple card. I used my favorite techniques – masking and blending.

I started with stamping the image onto a white card stock panel. Then I masked the flowers and a part of the card panel and blended inks: Altenew Voleano Lake, Altenew Lagoon and Distrress ink Evergreen Bough. Removed all masks.

Then I colored the flowers with Zig markers, mounted the panel onto a card base and popped up a sentiment with foam tape.

To finish off my card I added Studio Katia Crystal Clear Fusion sequins.
