PSL Card Making Time

Tuesday, September 6th, 2022

Break out the MFT Autumn Blessing stamps and a Pumpkin spice from Lawn Fawn and we’re making PSL Cards.  We are mixing things up a bit this month, Tara is on the move and packing up all her craft stash. So, I’m here with a   throwback card from a blog hop. I chose this one because it’s the same stamps she used in last weeks post.

I’m featuring Autumn Blessings by MFT once again!  I had a card idea in mind, but tweaked it a bit at the end and added some PSL vibes 😉 so I hope you like it!

Lawn Fawn & MFT latte card

I colored up the pumpkins from the MFT set and the Pumpkin Spice Latte stamp by Lawn Fawn with Distress Ink & water.   They were all stamped on water color card stock with Archival Ink.  I cut them out with the coordinating dies.  I decided afterwards that this would be a fun project for Distress Embossing Glaze, so I used Clear Embossing Pen to color in the mug and glazed it to give a nice shiny mug!  I used the glaze over Clear Embossing Ink on the sentiment, which I stamped directly on the Kraft card base.

I really wanted to pair these pumpkins with Buffalo Plaid, but my new stamp didn’t arrive in time (I’ll have some fun with it in the near future though!) so I found some patterned paper to use.  A touch of silk ribbon and some glitter (Distress Stickles are the perfect ‘spice’ here… they are discontinued, but still a fave of mine.  Buy some if you find them!) are the finishing touches for my fun FALL card!

I’m not gonna lie, autumn cards are my favorite and I love seeing the creative mix of cards by everyone this time of year.

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.

 

 

What about you, are you ready to add some splatter to your next project? If you do, link up to the Facebook challenge page, and don’t forget to add the hashtag #snschallenge to your socials. And if you feel a shop coming on, remember you can use 10Lindsey to get 10% off your order!

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.
