Pink Flamingo Birthday Card (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)


Hi everyone! :o)

Today is my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I made this Pink Flamingo Birthday Card:o)


I made this card for my cousin who's birthday is tomorrow. :o)

To make this card I used stamps from a brand new, GORGEOUS 'Tropical Fun' stamp set and sentiment from 'All Occasions' stamp set . I made my own background using three tiny heart die cuts from 'Stinks' dies set.

    


How I made this card...

I stamped a flamingo on a watercolor paper and colored it in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. After drying, I fussy cut the flamingo and traced edges with black marker. I softened the flamingo on a soft working mat using stylus ball.

I stamped another flamingo on a white cardstock paper and fussy cut the flamingo leaving thin white border around it. I colored the flamingo in black.

Then I glued together two flamingos, watercolored one and black one. I did this to make the image thicker, as the watercolor paper I use is very thin.

Next up was a background. I randomly die cut tiny hearts on a white cardstock paper panel. I used only the panel and left die cut hearts for another project.

Lastly, I heat embossed in white on a black cardstock paper a sentiment 'Birthday Wishes' and cut the stripe to a desirable size.

With all pieces ready, I assembled the card. I glued 3-D foam squares on the back of the panel and glued it on a white top folded card base. The panel and card base are same size.

Then I glued foam tape on the sentiment stripe and placed the sentiment on the card. Lastly, I glued more 3-D foam on the flamingo and glued it on the card.  I'm very satisfied with a result. :o)

Karate Orange Belt Shaker Card

Hello everyone! :o)

Today I want to share with you this CAS (clean and simple), Karate Orange Belt Shaker Card.


I made this card for my niece Tea (7), who trains Karate for four years. On June 7th 2018, she had her second Karate testing to earn an Orange Belt. She earned it!! :o) 

If you would like to find out more what the Karate Belt colors mean, check out this article.

Tea earned Orange Karate Belt

As I wanted to give her the card in person, I didn't hurry and created this card last week and gave it to her last weekend, while I was visiting my family in Bilice near Šibenik, where they are spending their vacation. She loved it!! :o)

If you like, you can see a card I made her last year here, when she earned a Yellow Belt. :o)


How I made this card...

To make this card I used a super cute Mama Elephant 'Tiny Ninjas' stamp set. LOVE!!! :o)

I stamped adorable ninja on a watercolor paper and watercolored her using Distress Inks. After drying, I fussy cut the ninja leaving white thin border around her. (As this was a card for a girl, my ninja is a girl.)

I used UNIKO 'Explosion! Additions' stamp set to create a window for my shaker card. I inked an explosion shape with VersaMark Ink and stamped it on a white cardstock paper panel. Using kraft knife, I cut out the shape and created the window. I glued an acetate sheet on the panel to close the window.

Then I blended a Distress Ink Spiced Marmalade directly on a white top folded card base. When I was satisfied with a color, I coated ink blended surface with Clear Wink of Stella.

I mixed various sequins and beads to get my own mix. I glued 3 mm thick foam sheet on the panel, filled the window with shaker mix and glued the panel on the card base. I also glued some foam on the ninja and glued her in the middle of the window (explosion shape).

Lastly, I heat embossed a sentiment in white on a black cardstock paper stripe and trimmed the stripe to get desirable size. I glued foam on the back and glued the sentiment on the card. To make the card sturdier, I glued a white cardstock paper panel inside the card and my card was finished. :o)

    Communion Girl Card

    Hi everyone! :o)

    Today I want to share with you this CAS (clean and simple), Communion Girl Card.


    I made this card in May, for a friend of mine who's niece had her First Communion. I totally forgot to share this card. :o)


    How I made my card...

    I used a GORGEOUS A Day For Daisies 'Tender Thoughts' digital image. Lovely girl, flowers and butterflies... So serene. :o)

    This is a second card I made using this gorgeous image. You can find the first card here.

    I went with same layout on this card as on my first card using this image. I already had a layout on my computer. I resized the image a bit and printed the image on a white cardstock paper panel. I printed another image on a watercolor paper panel and left images dry through the night to prevent ink smearing while coloring.

    Next day I colored images in watercolor technique using Distress Inks and Aquarel Colored Pencils. I colored flowers and butterflies directly on the panel. I colored the girl printed on the watercolor paper, fussy cut it after drying and traced edges with a black marker. I softened the girl image using stylus ball and glued her over the image printed on the panel.

    I glued 3 mm thick foam sheet on the back of the panel and glued it on a white top folded card base. As a finishing touch, I coated flowers and butterflies with Clear Wink of Stella.
