Hello everyone. I have been crafting some cards as an escape from doing my mum’s Ebay stuff.
I was inspired by the current challenge at Twofer Card Challenge, and also using the sketch from Crazy 4 Challenges for one of the cards:
The ‘feel better soon’ card is another one layer card, with no smudges again – maybe I’m getting the hang of it? We shall see………
I took the Altenew ‘Get Well Soon’ stamp set and stamped the main image onto a card base. I then stamped again onto a post-it note and masked it off, stamping the honeycomb images over and around it, lining up the hexagons as it was several different hexagon shaped stamps I used.
The main image I coloured with Altenew Artist Markers.:
I have no idea what is supposed to be in the bottle behind the mug and honey, but I just coloured it a matching colour…..maybe maple syrup…..who knows!
The second floral card is using the same honeycomb stamp, but this time I stamped and heat embossed it in a random pattern, and used my Distress Oxides over the top for an emboss-resist. It’s quite dull here in the UK at the moment, but the honeycomb is white and shiny:
I used Altenew inks to stamp the main flower and the leaves, but coloured the two little sprigs of flowers with the Altenew Artist Markers, then using the matching dies to cut them all out.
The die cut frame is from Sue Wilson – Noble dies – for the main background, die-cutting the middle and inserting the ink-resist panel into it. I knew the flowers and leaves would adding dimension, so I stuck this flat to the base card.
I arranged as you see for another vibrant card – but a totally different feel.
The sentiment is a cobbling together of three stamps from Concord and 9th ‘Wonderful Floral‘ stamp set – lined up using my Misti corner set…………..invaluable when there are different stamps you want lined up to ink and stamp together.
I shall be entering the following challenges:
Twofer Card Challenge – geometric (honeycomb stamps)
Crazy 4 Challenges – sketch
QKR Stampede – anything goes
Aud Sentiments Challenge – anything goes with a sentiment
Have a good day, and I’ll hopefully see you next time. 🙂
