12 Days of Christmas - Day 5 - Sweet Holidays Mini Circle Card (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)

 


Hi everyone! :o)

Today I'm continuing with my 12 Days of Christmas Series. Today is 5th Day of day of my series.

Due to some important private stuff I had to finish, I took again a short break from sharing my series... This series is really not working as I planed, but I'm determined to finish sharing what I planned. :o)

By now, I only had giveaways and I Love Math Challenge #18 that I incorporated in this series. If you like, you can check all posts I shared by now here, or following these links:

There is still some time left to join the Day 4 Giveaway, as well as I Love Math Challenge #18 (Day 3). :o)


I'm continuing my 12 Days of Christmas Series with a card: Sweet Holidays Mini Circle CardIt was my spotlight project for Jane's Doodles on Tuesday, November 27th, 2020I didn't share it here on my blog earlier because I wanted to share it in series I planned prior Christmas, but that also didn't work as I planned (I wrote about it here).


To make this card I used stamps from two SUPER CUTE Jane's Doodles stamp sets'Holiday Sweets' and 'Warm and Cozy'. ♥


How I made my card....

First I created a background panel. I randomly stamped candy canes and candies on a Kraft paper in watermark stamping technique using VersaMark Watermark Ink. Then I die cut a wonky stitched circle from the paper and heat embossed a sentiment in white on it.

Then I splattered the panel with a white tempera color mixed with a bit of water and left the panel to dry on air.

Next up was card base. I cut two circles from a white cardstock paper and glued them together on the top. Then I glued the panel on the circle card base.

Next up was an image. I stamped an adorable gingerbread man on a watercolor paper and colored him in watercolor technique with a Distress Ink Ground Espresso. After drying, I fussy cut the gingerbread man and traced edges with a black marker.

I stamped another gingerbread man on a white cardstock paper, colored him with a grey marker and fussy cut him, leaving white thin border around him. Then I glued the watercolored gingerbread man over the grey one.

You know I love dimension on my cards. I glued 3-D foam squares on the back of the gingerbread man and glued him on the card.

As a finishing touch I drew white highlights on the gingerbread man using a white gel pen and my card was finished. :o)

I love how my card turned out. :o)

Wedding Card no. #8 (bastel-traum challenge #97)

Happy Friday! :o)

It's time for a new challenge over at bastel-traum and our theme for the challenge #97 is Love. :o)


The challenge started today, January 15th, 2021, at 9 AM, CET (UTC +1) and ends on February 15th, 2021, at 8:55 AM, CET (UTC +1). Find all the details about the challenge, rules and prizes in a challenge post (here).


And here is my take on the challenge: Wedding Card. :o)


To make this card I CASEd (copied and shared everything) my own card that I created in September 2019 (here).

To make this card I used BEAUTIFUL Stamping Bella 'uptown couple BRETT and BRENDA get married' rubber stamp. This is my eighth take on this stamp. If you like, you can find my previous cards using this image hereherehereherehere, here and here. :o)


How I made this card...

Like on the original car, I wanted to achieve Sepia look, so I used only one color for coloring: a Distress Ink Vintage Photo.

I stamped the image on a watercolor paper panel and watercolored it in watercolor technique.

First I watercolored a background. After drying, I masked the image (I stamped another image on a white paper scrap and fussy cut the image), splattered the background and dried the panel with a Heat It Tool.

At this point the panel was quite buckled, because I didn't fix the panel to a working surface. I placed the panel between printing paper sheets and run it couple times through Sizzix Die Cutting Machine. Flat. :o)

Next up was the couple. I watercolored them, adding more color and layers on darker parts and less color and more water on lighter parts.

When I was satisfied with my coloring, I glued the panel on a white top folded card base and the card was finished. :o)


Card measurements: 92 mm x 133 mm (3 5/8" x 5 1/4")

List of supplies:
  • Stamping Bella 'uptown couple BRETT and BRENDA get married' rubber stamp
  • stamp seal ('Best Wishes')
  • white cardstock paper (card base)

  • white printing paper (mask)
  • brown baking paper (envelope)
  • Ranger's Archival Ink (Jet Black)
  • Tim's Holtz Distress Ink, Vintage Photo (in bt shop: here and here)

    It's the little things... Card (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)

       


    Hi everyone! :o)

    This is my 1100th blog post!! :o)


    Today was my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I made this one layer, It's the little things... Card. :o)


    My card is a CASE (copy and share everything) of my own card that I created four years ago (here). Everything same, I just rotated the layout. :o)

    To make this card I used two GORGEOUS Jane's Doodles stamp sets: 'Lily' and 'You Got This'. :o)


    How I made my card....

    For a card base I used Canson XL Mixed Media Paper. stamped a sentiment in the center of the card with a black ink. The sentiment impression wasn't so good so I fixed it by tracing letters with a black fine liner.

    Then I heat embossed in white lilies directly on the card base, creating a lilies frame. I also did some masking, because I didn't want lilies to overlap. I used masks I had from some previous projects. I store masks in a pouch with a stamp set.

    Next up was coloring. I watercolored the card front with Distress Inks Mustard Seed and Fossilized Amber. I dried the card with a Heat It Tool and splattered it with same Distress Inks mixed with a bit of water.

    As a finishing touch, I coated lilies and the sentiment with a glossy Wink of Stella and my card was finished. :o)


    Love the shimmer!! :o)
