Another card for the Birthday Stash – Done using the Easel Card Technique.
Loved making the easel card so had to try another. I had already started this card and didn’t like it so when I learned the easel card technique my outcast was revived. I used the Hero Arts My Monthly Hero January 2018 Heart Die, Catherine Pooler Love Die, Paper Smooches Hearts Die, Catherine Pooler Postage Stamp Die, My Favorite Things Pierced Square Die, Simon Says Stamp All My Love stamp set and Candied Apple and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Inks.
My second share on Stamp Nation’s Birthday Stash – Done. This tutorial, Cards for BFFs with Winnie & Walter by Crystal Thompson, involved several techniques that I love doing. The first is ink smooshing. I did the smooshing with Catherine Pooler’s Flirty Fuschia and Be Mine Inks. Second I used Catherine Pooler’s Lattice Frame Die and placed it on the smooshed background which I cut from Catherine Pooler’s Postage Stamp Die. I used the sponging technique with the same inks and die cut with Simon Says Stamp’s Sketched Hearts die and Love die. I added a sentiment under the Love Die Cut from Simon Says Stamp All My Love stamp set. Sprinkled a few sequins on.
First share for the Stamp Nation Birthday Card Stash – Done
(A collaboration to celebrate StampNation’s 7th birthday)
The first tutorial was by Kimberly Rendino (CAS-ual Fridays) for a Sassy easel Card so I used the My Favorite Things Fishbowl Die to make the easel. I used Distress Oxide to color the items in the fishbowl. The background is Alcohol Ink on Yupo paper. The water effect is cardstock by Imagine Crafts called Vertigo Taffeta. Stamp sets used were: Penny Black Cupcake, Lawn Fawn Fintastic Friends, Simon Says Stamp All My Love, and Penny Black Sweet Wishes. I used Stamp of Approval Birthday Wishes die also.
I always look forward to the newest Stamp of Approval collection by Catherine Pooler. There are always so many different stamps and dies to be used in many creative ways. I start by using all the ideas in the Project Guide that comes with the collection. This gets my creative juices going and I end up with a whole bunch of cards in a short time. Here are the first three.
Birthday card for Grandson Charlie. Inspired by Nichol Magourik for Lawn Fawn. Finally making use of all the eyes I have been collecting.
Found this request for handmade cards on one of the Facebook pages I follow. This is why I love making cards. I enjoy it so much and then to see how happy it makes the recipients makes it a double pleasure. Jacob loves the Antarctica and Penguins but instead of Penguins I decided to use this Lawn Fawn stamp set that I love. I also love making spinner cards. They are a lot of fun. Had to do a video also so it will perform the spin.
My Grandkids got their Halloween cards (and on time) I love seeing their smiling faces even if Charlie and Emilia are looking like they got the “Say Cheese” command from the photographer. They are adorable. Love the Lawn Fawn Candy Corn stamp that I used.
First Halloween Card for one of my Grandkids. I really do love candy corn. Used alcohol markers to color the cat and Paper Mate Flair to color the candy corn.
Entered in My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge #355
A card made with some of the Stamp of Approval stamps and die sets. I used Catherine Pooler Inks which I am very happy with. I love the way they stamp. This card was challenging. I did a lot of measuring and using circles divided up etc. I never was great at Geometry.
Another using Stamp of Approval sets mixed with a few others. I love the combination of colors from Catherine Pooler Inks.
