Happy Canada Day!

Today is Canada’s 156th birthday, and I wanted to celebrate. What better way than to colour up this fabulous stamp by AALL and Create. But first, let me start with my background.

For the background I am using Stampers Anonymous stencil Brush Mark. I cut a piece of cardstock to fit the left side of my card and stenciled using the stencil along with Distress Oxide ink in Barn Door. I then attached it to a piece of navy cardstock with the mat showing on the left side.

In my mini Misti I stamped the Mountie, being AALL and Create stamp #871, using Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black. I then stamped the flag using Memento Ink in Rhubarb Stalk, and fussy cut both of the pieces out.

I attached the Mountie and the Flag to the card front using foam squares and finished off with embellishments to the Mountie using red gel pen down the outers sides of his pants, adding gold to the buttons and belt buckle, and adding white gel pen to several areas.

I then put my card back in my Misti and Stamped the sentiment using VersaFine Clair ink in Medieval Blue to finish.

Another fun card to make and to celebrate Canada Day. I hope you have enjoyed this card, and I also hope you all have a fabulous Canada Day!

Copic markers used: E40, E41 face; E59 Belt, Stetson trim, Pouch, Congress boots; R27 Red Serge, E39 Hair and E34 Stetson Hat; B00 on Eyes, and B99 for the Banana Pants.

Take 2 Precious Peony

Hello crafters. Kia here with a follow up of my card from last week using the Altenew Precious Peony Stamp set, which I cannot say enough, I just love, love, love!

Earlier this week I watched a video by Gina K Designs where she made a Double Gatefold card, and I wanted to use the design for this card today. I do love the look of the sweeping flowers which I coloured using Copic markers. When closed the layers match up, so one might think there is only one image, when there is acutally two! How fun!

The flowers are B02, B04, B06 and B06, B18, B99. For the leaves I used V01, V04, V06, V17 and BG15. The matting is done using Spellbinders Island View cardstock. My base is Neenah 110lb and the embossed layers are Hammermill 100lb. The lattice embossing is done using Spellbinders Bamboo Trellis embossing folder.

I used Tim Holtz sentiments for the Gatefold part of the card, and the inside sentiment says “Have a Beautiful Day”.

I hope you have enjoyed Take 2, and that you will give this fold card a try. If you do, remember to share it with us in the Facebook Scrap’n Stamp Challenge page. It is certainly fun to do. Thank you for visiting with Scrap’n Stamp today.

Have a Beautiful Day!

Sweet Friend

Hello crafty friends, Kia here with you today to share this card called “Sweet Friend”, which is featuring Altenew’s Precious Peony stamps set. This is such a beautiful set, which always makes it fun to colour. I used two of the stamps from the set for this design, and only 5 Copic markers for colour. Using such a small number of Copic’s was a first for me, but I love the results.

I picked two of the stamp images from the set to colour. The Copic colours for the flowers are R35 and R27, and for the leaves YG05, YG06 and YG07.

Once I finished with the colouring I cut the images out, and set them aside. Moving on to the background I opted to use an embossing folder, which is also from Altenew called Garden Harmony and Hammermill cardstock. I spritzed both side of the card before running through my machine.

To put it all together I picked a Gina K Design cardstock called Red Hot for my card base. Using glue I attached the embossed piece to my card front. I then attached the right side image using glue. To the left image I added foam squares before attaching it resting over the opposite flower. I then finished my card with a sentiment from Pinkfresh Design called Heart Smiles.

For the inside of my card I again embossed another piece of Hammermill card, gluing it in place. I then stamped a sentiment also from the Pinkfresh Heart Smiles stamp set, and went around the edges of the piece using a Copic marker, which I also did for the sentiment on the front of the card.

Thank you for visiting today. I hope you have enjoyed this card as much as I enjoyed making it. I wll be back next week with another card made from this set. See you then.
