Wine a Little, You’ll Feel Better!

Friday, June 24th, 2022

Hello Everyone! It’s Susan and I’m back with another card for the Random Acts of Cardness Challenge. This time I chose to use WINE as the prompt knowing I had this fun stamp set in my stash from Art Impressions. It’s called Aged to Perfection and it’s one of my favorite sets.

I decided to try paper piecing with this image and I love how it turned out. I used a fun paper pack from Catherine Pooler Designs. If you struggle putting different patterns together I highly recommend using a paper pack as the colors and patterns all coordinate so you know they’ll work together. Easy Peasy! I stamped the image on two different patterns of paper and also on some Canson Mixed Media Paper. I colored the parts of the image that wouldn’t have patterned paper on it using my Tombow Dual Brush Pens then set about fussy cutting all the pieces.  I also stamped the image on some thin plain white card stock then glued the cut pieces in their place on the card stock.

I used a slimline die from Catherine Pooler Designs to cover the back – I wanted it to look like white textured wallpaper then added a strip of grey patterned paper from the same pack as the chair. I adhered everything to the card base then stamped the sentiment.

 

Thanks so much for spending a part of your day with me.

Take care,
Susan

Get Well Soon!

Saturday, February 26th, 2022

I love the humour in the stamps from Art Impressions, and this Get Well set is a great example! The funny images and punny sayings would perk up anyone who wasn’t feeling well. So this makes a great get well soon card, for anyone. Get well also happens to be the word prompt for today’s Scrap ‘N Stamp daily challenge!

I SEE YOU (OR I.C.U.)

No one is comfortable in these silly ‘robes’ they give you at the hospital or doctor’s office! It’s hard to remain dignified when your back end is exposed to the world!

Get Well Soon

Hopefully the recipient of this card won’t have any stitches they might disrupt, when laughing at this card! The play on words just tickle my funny bone.

CARD DETAILS

I wanted to use both sentiments, so I decided to use these two images. Having accompanied my husband on many doctor/specialist visits, I feel like I’ve lived this scene.  The images and sentiments are stamped in Nocturne ink onto white cardstock. Then choose your favourite colouring tools; I chose some Copic and Spectrum Noir markers. After colouring, layer the images and sentiments onto dark blue panels. Cover a dark blue card base with some patterned paper, and then layer on the images and sentiments.

Using up your scraps with a CUPPA LOVE

Wednesday, January 30th, 2019

Good morning crafty friends! Amy here with my last post for Scrap N’ Stamp. It’s been a pleasure creating with these fun products and alongside some AMAZING ladies!

Today I have a little fun tutorial to use up your scraps along with Spellbinder’s CUPPA LOVE die set.

Here’s the fun and BRIGHT card I made using up a few pieces of scrap along with some adhesive.

I started by cutting 1/4′”strips out of my collection of scrap cardstock pieces. I then applied Be Creative Adhesive sheet to the back of a piece of copy paper cut to 4.25″x 5.5″. I  then peeled of the release paper and started lining up my strips…really quick and easy! ;o) I started with the colors of the rainbow but lost a bit  of the ROY G BIV order when I cut it down for my panel. BUT I still think it’s fun and pretty! lol

I applied Candied Apple Distress Oxide to Bristol Smooth paper,  straight from the pad, no blending tool and used that to die cut the cup from CUPPA LOVE. I  then used Vintage Photo Distress Oxide applied to Bristol Smooth to die cut the Coffee portion from the die set  as well. I adhered it all together and added some leaves and a little heart from the same set to complete my mug. Some little white gel pen highlights and some Nuvo Crystal Glaze applied to the coffee and heart finished it off…doesn’t it look good enough to drink???

A sentiment from Art Impressions Latte Love Set stamped with Black Onyx Versafine Ink die cut with MFT-  Fishtails completed my sentiment. I adhered the panel to black cardstock and applied it to my base card with fun foam. A natural hemp ribbon finished off my card.

So  there we have it, a fun and relatively easy way to use up some scraps to get a BRIGHT background for your cards.

I sure hope you’ve enjoyed this tutorial and don’t forget to check out the LOVE IS IN THE AIR Challenge over on or FB page here.

Happy Craftin’!
