Todays card is one inspired by Whiff of Joy’s challenges, that i found a few days ago, and it’s for my dear friend Eva for being my light and inspiration!
Sense i only have one Whiff of Joy stamp that became an easy choise, and it’s not getting harder by the fact that it is one of my favorites. The challenge this week was “aqua, pink and cream” (#104) so i decided to give it a try (even if i just realized that it’s closed now but im very happy with the card). The image is of course Whiff of Joy’s Puff-heart Dragon and i colored him with both promarkers and copics. I did go over the colored image with my blender to get the more distressed look. The background of it is made with weathered wood and tumbled glas.
The papers are all from Bo Bunny’s collection Sophie, and i just love these papers. All the papers have been inked and distressed with either Broken China, Worn lipstick or Antique Linen. I did paperpierced a lot on this card and all the odd shapes like the circle and the arrow-like one on the cream paper is made with Gina K’s paperpiercing-templates. The sentiment is also from Gina K and is from the Fanciful labels. On the pink paper i also scored at 0,5cm apart to give it more texture. The border at the cream papers
The inside is made by the same papers and are inspired by Donna Wardel‘s card-insides. Unfortunately my white ribbons has run out so i used one matching the cardstock instead.
I’m entering this card into A spoon full a sugar nr 158- Things with wings.
Todays card is made with an focal that I experimented with yesterday using emboss-resist-technique.
The focal image is first stamped with Gina K’s timeless textures, with Versa Colors 152 Ash Rose, the script stamp and then i clear-embossed Hero Arts Flower Lady. After that the entire imaged got heavily distressed with milled lavender. I did the same thing with the label, that is the Quickutz die labels, and i stamped two small hearts on it with the Ash Rose again. The cards background is a simple white cardstock that have been teated with provocrafts embossingfolder Victoria and then lightly distressed with some more milled lavender. The bottom edge, bot white and pink paper, have been punched with Fiskar’s border punch scalloped circles. The flowers are simple white Reprint papers that has been embellished with some small pearls. The ribbon that is used is a pink multi-colored one that i think match both the dark and the light pink. The dark pink cardstock is a bazil bling one which makes it a bit hard to get a accurate picture of the color but it works really good together with the ash rose and milled lavender. The card is a 15 x 10cm, very close to an A6.
The cards layout is from this weeks Mojo Monday (#192). I didn’t change much but I’m happy. I’m also trying to enter this month Hero Arts challenge for the first time.
Todays card is one that i made pieces of being a bit sick so excuse the lack of details.
The image is Kraftin’ Kimmie’s Florance and the is colored with Promarkers and Copics. As an afterthought i think that the focal is a bit empty and boring and i wish i would have distressed or drawn a frame for her. The Greeting and it’s frame is both Gina K’s Fanciful tags and the frame was stamped with Versa Colors 20 Turquoise. The flowers coming of the corners is the thing im most satisfied with and they are made with EK Success Flower Power punch. I added a medium peal into every one in a couple of different colors. The background paper is from an very old paper pack that i don’t know the name of brand of. I used Sketch Saturday for the layout. The top block is made from feathers i found in my stash, i think they are form a jewelry kit from Panduro, but I’m not entirely sure.
The card has a joy-fold and are for my sister in law which is waiting her second child.
I have been working out from this weeks Mojo Monday’s layout and all patterned papers are from Echo Park’s collection A walk in the Park. The image is Kraftin Kimmie’s Caroline and i have colored her skin with copic and the hair with promarker and the dress have been paper piced with the Echo park-papers, I have done the same with the bottles. The bottles are mounted on an oval from Gina K’s Fanciful Labels and the greeting is from the same set. The borders are from Nellie Snellen and i dry embossed the yellow patterned paper with my Victorian embossingfolder from Provocraft. I have distressed all the papers with Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmelade (and the green paper is distressed with Peeled Paint. The flowers are Ek Sucsess’s Flower Power and i did embellished them with a small pearl. I kept the pearls going in Caroline’s hair and dress also. The scalloped circle containing the greeting is made with nestabilities and Mavy Uchida scalloped punch.
I’m not entirely happy with the inside, as an after thought i think i should have dressed the background in a patterned paper. I was to greedy about the papers when i first thought abut it but i have to admit that it doesn’t look as goos like this.
Challanges I’m entering with this card:
Today another very nice and well expected package landed at my desk. This time is was from Gina K. designs. I have for a very long time been wanting to order from them but i have had a hard time deciding what to order and the few times i have been clear over my ordered something have been sold out. But now i finally placed and ordered and revived it. I ordered two stamp-sets (and apparently by a miss-click i got double by one and a free one for buying 3 sets) and paper piercing templates.
I have been using the Tim Holtz design ruler for my paper piercing but I’m not happy with it. I find it hard to keep it still and on line so i decided to try Gina K’s templates. I made a quick test and i love it! I definitely like that fact that it will be easier to make circels.
I really love the Fanciful Tags stamp-set. I have all the sentiments one can need in a nice font and some frames if you need. Same goes for the Timeless textures. You always need texture-stamps. I didn’t plan the Garden silhouettes but i like the font on the sentiments so maybe i can try them for some emboss ressist techniqs.
