Add a Little Splatter!

Friday, March 11th, 2022

 

Happy Friday! I have a little inspiration for you for today’s Random Acts of Cardness prompt, SPLATTER:

 

 

Making cards to show support for Ukraine is still on my mind, so I knew I wanted to make something with blue and yellow. I pulled out this pretty Filled In Florals set from Concord & 9th, stamping the large flower in stone blue ink from Catherine Pooler and the smaller one with juniper mist. Both flower centres are stamped in tiara, and the leaves in garden party. Before I did anything else, I did some splattering! I think splatter is a great way to add extra interest to a CAS card design. I used tiara and stone blue for my splatters, tapping a little of each ink out on some acetate then using a small brush and some water to make it splatter-thin-enough. Once the splatters had dried, I stamped my two part sentiment and put the card together.

Warm & Cozy Hugs

Saturday, January 29th, 2022

Hi Everyone! Happy Saturday! It’s Susan here with a card for todays Random Act of Cardness prompt of WARM.  You can play along with us over on the Scrap’n Stamp Challenge Page on Facebook.

I used the Jill Stamp Set from Picket Fence Studios because she’s dressed WARM and drinking a WARM beverage. I stamped it using my mini MISTI and some Midnight ink from Catherine Pooler Designs. I colored it in with my Prismacolor Pencils then put the image back in my MISTI and stamped it again to crisp up the lines. I cut the image out then made the background. I used Lemongrass, Shea Butter, Clay Mask and Orange Peel inks from Catherine Pooler to blend a background that felt WARM then die cut it using the 2nd largest die from the Lawn Fawn Large 4 Bar die set.

The sentiment is from Concord & 9th’s Winter Wear Stamp Set and I chose it because, you guessed it, it has the word WARM in it. 😉 I stamped it with WOW embossing ink onto some black card stock then heat set it with WOW Super Fine White Embossing Powder. I cut each word out separately then adhered them to the panel.

I layered the panel onto some black card stock the using craft foam I adhered it to a piece of patterned paper from MFT’s B&W Striped Paper Pack which I also layered onto some black card stock. I adhered that directly to a white card base.

FUN WITH EMBOSSING

Thursday, January 13th, 2022

 

Hi Everyone! It’s Susan here (a little late in the day but I made it) with a couple of cards featuring the Random Act of Cardness prompt for today. The prompt is EMBOSSING and I made two cards that are full of embossing.

When I started this card I had zero idea on what I would do. I video taped the process but don’t worry, I won’t make you sit through all my humming and hawing about what to do.

I have a filming tip for you. I film with my iphone and I learned that if my battery is low it will switch to recording in slow motion. Part way through the filming it did that and I ended up with 484 minutes of film. So, my tip is make sure your phone is fully charged when you start filming.

Click HERE to see the video.

These were extremely fun to make. I forgot how much I like doing cards like this – a little mixed media and grungy looking.

This would be fun to do with bright colors too.

I have a bonus card for you.  I showed the embossed Sage background piece in the video but not how I put it together.   I used Walnut Stain Distress Ink and Iced Spruce Oxide ink to add some depth to the panel then cut it down with the 2nd largest die in the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched 4 Bar Rectangle Die Set. I added it to a card base with craft foam. This really helps to flatten the panel. I embossed a simple embossed sentiment using the Pinkfresh Miss Your Smile Stamp Set and a few of the embossed hearts I cut out in the video.

This one was much simpler so it came together much quicker.
