Bear Hugs Mini Circle Card (Jane's Doodles DT)

 


Hi everyone! :o)

Today I want to share with you this Bear Hugs Mini Circle CardIt was my spotlight project for Jane's Doodles on Tuesday, November 3rd, 2020. I didn't manage to share it here on my blog earlier, so I'm sharing it today. :o)


To make this card I was inspired with a card I made for our last Jane's Doodles Release Blog Hop (here).

For my card I used stamps from two GORGEOUS Jane's Doodles stamp sets'Pumpkin Patch' and 'Bear Hugs'. ♥


How I made my card....

First I created a background panel. I randomly stamped acorns and pumpkins on a Kraft paper in watermark stamping technique using VersaMark Watermark Ink. Then I die cut a wonky stitched circle from the paper and stamped a sentiment in black on it.

Then I made a card base. I cut two circles from a white cardstock paper and glued them together on the top.

I glued the panel on the circle card base.

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

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

I die cut a speech bubble form a white cardstock paper and stamped a sentiment on it.

I love dimension on my cards. I glued 3-D foam squares (2 different thickness) on the back of the bear and the speech bubble and glued them on the card.

As a finishing touch I drew white highlights on the bear using a white gel pen, embellished the card with two brown enamel dots and my card was finished. :o)

I love how my card turned out. :o)


Card measurements: d = 83 mm (3 1/4")

Amazing fact about Bears:
"Bears care deeply about family members. They will risk their lives and even fight to the death in order to save a cub or sibling from danger."

Hi everyone! :o)

Today I want to share with you CAS (clean and simple), one layer, Love You more than Pumpkin Pie Card. :o)


To make this card I used stamps from a BEAUTIFUL Jane's Doodles 'Pumpkin Spice' stamp set.

After ink blending, I removed masks and coated a whiped cream with a white pearl maker and left it dry for an hour.

After drying, I drew white highlights with a white gel pen and my card was finished. :o)

Reindeer Card (CASology Week #378 mid-inspiration)

 


Hi everyone! :o)


Last Tuesday, November 10th, 2020, a new challenge started at CASology
This fortnight's cue word is Stag. :o)



Due to some unexpected situation, I didn't manage to prepare my blog post on time, so I'm bringing it today as mid-inspirationThere's still plenty of time to join the challenge, which ends on Monday, November 23rd, 2020, 9 AM, CDT (UTC -5).

We also have a sponsor for this challenge: STAMPlorations. Find all details about the prize over at CASology blog.




And here is my take on the challenge: CAS (clean and simple), Reindeer Card. :o)


Design defined: 
Ink blending & splattering on a background with stacked die-cuts works well on a CAS card.


How I made the card...

To make my card I was inspired with a card design from last year (here).

I ink blended Distress Inks directly on a white cardstock paper panel. When I was satisfied with the color, I splattered the panel with a water, dabbed the surface with a paper towel and left the card to dry on air.

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

I wanted to create some dimension on my card, but I didn't want to use 3-D foams to do that. Instead, I used white carstock paper scraps and cut two rectangles, a bit smaller than the panel. Then I glued two rectangles together, glued them on the back of the panel and glued all together on a white side folded card base. I cut another white panel and glued it inside of the card, just to make my card sturdier.

Then I die cut three reindeer in the white cardstock paper and glued them together (stacked them). I glued stacked reindeer on the card and my card was finished. :o)

I really like this color combination and card design. :o)


Card measurements: 140 mm x 102 mm (5 1/2" x 4")

List of supplies:
  • Wiler Creativity Cutting Dies, reindeer die cut (gift from a dear friend Alice of Scrap & C... THANK YOU ALICE!!! )
  • Sizzix Big Shot
  • white cardstock paper
  • Tim Holtz Distress Inks:
    • Broken China
    • Peacock Feathers
  • UHU liquid glue
  • Fiskars High Precision Personal Paper Trimmer

Space Mini Circle Card (bastel-traum challenge #94)

Happy Friday! :o)


On October 15th, 2020, a new challenge started at bastel-traum and our theme for the challenge #94 is Background. :o)


I'm a bit late sharing my post here on my blog, but there is still 9 days left to join in the fun. 

The challenge started on October 15th, 2020, at 9 AM, CEST (UTC +2) and ends on November 15th, 2020, 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: Space Mini Circle Card. :o)


To make this card I was inspired with a card I made for this year's World Space Week Blog Hop (here).

For my card I used a spaceship stamp from Altenew 'Space Travel' stamp set.


How I made my card...

I colored a background in watercolor technique using Distress Inks Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch and Black Soot. I used a thick watercolor paper for it. When I was satisfied with the color, I left the panel to dry on air.

After drying, I die cut a wonky stitched circle from the panel. I stamped the spaceship in black on the panel and colored it with a black marker.

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

After drying, I ink blended edges with the Distress Ink Black Soot to achieve more dramatic look.

Next up was the spaceship. I stamped the spaceship on a thin watercolor paper and colored it in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. After drying, I fussy cut the spaceship, traced edges with the black marker and glued it over the spaceship that I stamped on the panel.

I made a card base from two circles that I cut from a black cardstock paper. I glued circles together on the top and glued the panel on the card base.

As a finishing touch, I drew couple white dots (stars) here and there on the panel using a white pigment ink pen and my card was finished. :o)


Card measurements: d = 83 mm (3 1/4")

List of supplies:
  • Altenew 'Space Travel' stamp set (spaceship)
  • black cardstock paper
  • Canson XL Mixed Media Paper, 300 g
