Merry & Bright Concord and 9th Christmas Card

Sunday, December 2nd, 2018

Happy Sunday! I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend! The countdown to Christmas is on and I thought I would share a quick and easy holiday card perfect for everyone on your list.

I started by creating an A2 sized stitched rectangle using festive pattern paper. Next, I die cut three snowflakes using Concord and 9th’s Snow Flurry die set with silver glitter paper.

For the main focus of the card, I die cut “Merry & Bright” three times and glued together using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive. To finish of the card, I added a polka dot ribbon and coordinating sequins.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy Howlidays

Thursday, November 8th, 2018

It is Kia back with you today to share my Happy Howlidays card. I just love the stamp sets I used today, being My Favorite Things Deck the Howls and Trio of Trees.

I don’t often use designer papers, but these papers spoke to me for this card. The papers are called Candy Land and they are a collection of fun traditional and non traditional papers. For my card I used the blue snowflake paper, but there is a pink one too.

I happened to have the snow drifts already made and sitting on my desk when I started this card, so I included them in my design, cutting them along with the designer paper with my Wonky Stitch Rectangle. A task my Gemini has no problem doing.

Using my Clarity Brushes I brushed on the Tumbled Glass Distress Ink lightly to the snow banks.  I mention these brushes as I note similar brushes in the store put out by Nuvo, which makes great products. I have linked to these brushes below. They are fabulous for stenciling and adding soft inking to cards. I have a few sets as I wanted a brush for each colour.

I stamped all of the images and cut as I wasn’t sure what ones I would use. I stamped the dogs using Ranger Archival Ink in Sepia, along with the branch trees. The other trees I did using Picked Raspberry, Twisted Citron and Broken China. To paint the animals I laid down the colours of distress ink on my work surface and picked up the paint with my paintbrush to watercolour.

Once everything was dry I arranged them on my card front, then proceeded to glue them on, and for some I used foam squares. I then added Nuvo Crystal Drops in Autumn Red and Oyster Grey. I painted lightly Tumbled Glass across the bottom, then painted over it with the white Pearl Colors.

To finish I stamped my sentiment on the front using Memento Ink, then I moved to the inside of my card. Using the same Wonky Rectangles I cut the designer paper and a piece of cardstock for my sentiment. I used another of the dog images and a tree, and stamped the sentiment with the Memento Ink. I also added the Nuvo Crystals to the tree, and the dog is attached with foam squares.

I hope you have enjoyed this card and would like to thank you for visiting the Scrap’n Stamp Blog today. I look forward to seeing you next time.

You’re a gem with Waffle Flower

Happy Sunday! It’s Jessica here and today I have a pretty birthday card with tons of jewels to share!

I started by creating an A2 sized stitched rectangle in lilac card stock. Next, I stamped and colored the main images from Waffle Flower’s First Step using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and alcohol markers.

For the sentiments, I die cut MFT’s “birthday” and paired it with a white embossed black card-stock strip.

To finish off the card I added 3D foam squares  for dimension, glossy accents and coordinating sequins.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
