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.

Inspiration time for today’s Random Acts of Cardness prompt: STENCILS!

 

 

This little guy is probably my very favourite bunny stamp – I have a little figurine that looks just like him that my grandmother gave me when I was very young. <3  To start the card, I blended shaded lilac, blueprint sketch and chipped sapphire distress inks using a My Favorite Things watercolour wash stencil. With the stencil still in place, I applied a layer of Nebula glitter gel over the inks. While that dried, I stamped and coloured my bunny with Copics before die cutting him and the crescent moon. I also stamped and embossed the sentiment, and coloured the strip with the leftover ink on my purple brush. Once the background (finally) dried, it was an easy task to put everything together.

 

 

I hope you’ll consider joining February’s challenge! Have a great week.

 

I’m Dreaming of a Red Christmas Gnome…

Friday, October 15th, 2021

Hello and happy Friday! It’s my turn today to pick a Random Acts of Cardness challenge prompt, and I chose RED – which just happens to be my favourite colour. 🙂  For me, red is good all year round, but definitely comes into its own for Christmas cards – and since it’s mid-October (what?) I am all about cranking out the Christmas cards:

 

 

I even managed to incorporate a gnome! (Have you visited and commented on our Gnome for the Holidays blog hop yet? Don’t forget, one lucky commenter wins a $50 gc to the store!) I’m using the same Spellbinders Holiday Gnomes stamps that I used for my hop card, combining it with die cuts from Concord & 9th’s Cozy Christmas die set. And wait, is that the world’s oldest embossing folder in the background? Why yes, it is! I think anyone who owned a Cuttlebug back in the day has this folder, but Scrap ‘n Stamp has a fun variety of much newer folders to choose from. 😉

 

 

If you add some RED to your next card, I hope you’ll add it to the challenge page on Facebook! And if the upcoming festive cardmaking frenzy has you needing a few new supplies, you are welcome to use my design team code, 10Lindsey, for 10% off your order. 🙂
