Keeping It Clean and Simple


Happy Victoria Day to our Canadian readers! I’m here with some inspiration for today’s Random Acts of Cardness prompt: CAS. Clean and Simple is my go-to style, so I attempted to be “extra” CAS with today’s card:




This is my first time using an Anita Jeram stamp – this one is Back Card Bunny, but I chose to give him front-of-card status. (He has a matching die, as well.) Theoretically, this could be a one layer card, but since he’s coloured with Copics and there was a little bleed-through, I adhered my panel to a sand cardbase.


If you’re posting a CAS card on social media, be sure to tag it with #snschallenge – you’ll be in the running for a $50 gift certificate to the Scrap ‘n Stamp store!

Hello all, Kia back with you for Day 28 of our Random Act of Cardness event with prompt word Brayer.

Recently while looking through videos I came across a video by Understandblue where in the first part of the video she shows a background technique using a brayer.  I loved the technique and decided I would do it for my card today.

In the video the technique starts at the beginning and runs to marker 3:03/15:27.

For my card I used Mustard Seed, Twisted Citron and Tumbled Glass, and I love the look. When I was finished doing the background I trimmed the piece and affixed it to my mini Slimline card.

On Fabriano Hot Press watercolour paper using my mini Misti, I stamped the image with VersaFine Clair ink in Nocturne and proceeded to watercolour using Daniel Smith watercolours. Once I finished painting I fussy cut the piece out.

Using foam strips I attached the image to my card, which shows in the picture above. I also did a piece for the inside of my card, and when I know where the card is going I will stamp inside.

In finishing I stamped the sentiment using distress ink in Rustic Wilderness, a beautiful colour and one of my new faves.

I hope you have enjoyed this technique and that you will give it a go. Following are Affiliate links to the store for the products I have used for this card. I have further details on my blog if you wish to visit.

Snow Happy

Hello crafters! Kia with you today for day 18 of the Random Act of Cardness, prompt word WINTER.

First up I stamped the image on Neenah card using Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black. I then added the black ink only to the deer and bunny, and stamped on the masking paper, then fussy cut it out and applying it over the deer and bunny.

I have only used this stamp set once before where I used my watercolours. So today I have opted for Copic markers and Distress Oxide inks. Starting with the Oxides I applied Prize Ribbon along the top portion of the card, ending with a moon shape, where the ink met up with Tumbled Glass Oxide. I then applied and blended the Tumbled Glass Oxide almost to the land line.

I then coloured the land portion using Copic BG10 and added C3 for shadows around the deer’s hoofs. Along the land line I added in BG11. Once I was done with the inking and the snow, I unmasked the deer and bunny to colour.

For the Deer I used E11, E23, E35, E37 and E49. For the bunny I used E40 and E41 with R81 on the snow, tail and ears.

I then ran the piece through my Gemini Jr. using the Spellbinders die. Within the die cut holes is where I added the snow using a gelly roll pen in white. Sore hand after adding all that snow! I normally would use Gouache, but I decided I would keep everything using pens and Copics. When I finally finished the snow I stamped the sentiment using the Blue Belle ink.

To finish up I glued the panel to my card base using Nuvo adhesive in the middle part and the thin line of my Lawn Fawn glue around the edges. I am pretty happy with how this turned out, even though it was a bit time consuming. It is always worth the time if you like what you see in the end.
