Sentiments Only

Friday, March 25th, 2022

Hi Everyone and welcome to another Random Acts of Cardness Challenge. I’m Susan and my prompt for today is Sentiments Only. I can pretty much guarantee that the first thing I decide on when making a card is the image I’m going to use which is why I wanted to challenge myself and all of you, because I think most people are like this, is to only use sentiments on their projects.

I started by going through my stamp stash and pulling out sets with sentiments. I quickly noticed I had a group that would work together so that’s what I used. I started with the hello because I knew I was going to color that one in and make it a focus. Then I added stamps around that one keeping it in somewhat of a square – the top one is poking out a little bit but that’s okay with me.

I used a red Tombow marker to color in the hello and to stamp the love in I love you and the rest I kept black & white. I used a fine tip black pen and a ruler to add the lines. Next I used the large die from the Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Rectangle Set to cut the panel then layered it onto a piece of black card stock tearing one side for some texture.

I layered the panel onto a piece of striped paper from MFT’s Black & White Stripes paper pack then added that to a white card base.

I think this would be a great style of card for masculine cards. Switch up the sentiments for birthday, retirement, father’s day – whatever the reason would work.

So now it’s your turn. Have a hunt through your stamps and (hunting would be a good theme for a masculine card too) have a go at Sentiments Only and please share your card in the SNS Facebook Group for a chance to win a Gift Certificate to the SNS Shop.

Hi Everyone!

It’s Susan and today I am sharing a super quick one layer Clean and Simple (CAS) card to play along with the Random Acts of Cardness Challenge. The prompt is CAS and this card doesn’t get any more CAS or easier.

On the front of a card I stamped the girl image from Sip Happens from Picket Fence and below it I stamped the sentiment from Penny Blacks Sentiment Collection. I stamped them both with Catherine Pooler Designs Midnight ink.

I used a fine tip black marker to draw the line at the bottom of the image – it looked unfinished without it.

I used the Crimson (847) Tombow marker to color in the shirt, wine, lips and finger nails.

And that’s it.

This card is done.

Told you it was easy.

 

Now it’s your turn.

Make a project with the CAS theme and share it with us at the Scrap’n Stamp Facebook Challenge page.

You could win a $25 Gift Certificate to the store so why not come join in the fun.

Warm & Cozy Hugs

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.
