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.

Have a FaBOOlous Day

Monday, October 25th, 2021

Wow, it’s the last week of October already! That means it’s time to finish off any Halloween prep you might need to do, you know, like buying your favourite Halloween treats. 😉  And if you like to send Halloween cards, it’s time to get them in the mail! I’m here with possibly the least spooky card you can imagine, for today’s Random Acts of Cardness prompt, BOO.

 

 

These little ghosties from Lawn Fawn’s Booyah stamps and dies are so sweet! I stamped a few, mixing up the shapes and faces, then picked two that seemed to get along well together for the “O”s in my BOO. I added a bow tie to one, and a sparkly flower to the other. And let me tell you about my background! I was using distress oxides for a different card background, and had been brushing the excess off on the back of a Scrap ‘n Stamp postcard from an order. As I was cleaning up, I realized I had the start of a spooky sky! I used mermaid lagoon, faded jeans and wilted violet for the background. My large “B” is from Concord & 9th’s Tall Type Alphabet. The secondary banner sentiment is from another fun Lawn Fawn set, Tiny Halloween. I tried different ways of mounting my panel onto the card base – directly onto a white card base, a black mat on a white base, but decided I liked this one, directly onto a black card base, best.

 

 

If I knew anyone getting married on Halloween, wouldn’t this be a fun wedding card? 😀  Thanks for checking in today – hope your week’s off to a faBOOlous start!

 

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. 🙂
