The Birdhouse

Monday, June 27th, 2022

It is Day 27 of the Random Act of Cardness event, and for my card today I am doing a delightful Birdhouse Fold card. I saw this card while browsing YouTube awhile back and thought it so cute, and so me.

First I followed the instructions from the video which I had written down. Following is a drawing with the instructions for ease of reference.

I am not one to buy designer paper, instead I like to make my own using stencils, which I have done here using Paper Rose Big Bloom along with Candied Apple distress oxide, Crackling Campfire distress oxide and Twisted Citron distress oxide. I also sponged on the reds to the card base front.

When finished with the front panel I did the panel for the inside, using the dots from the stencil along with a few of the leaves in Twisted Citron. Also, I sponged on the Twisted Citron for the inside of the card base.

Following the instructions I did the folds and attached them in place. I then die cut the circle for the front of the card using 2 sizes of Spellbinder circle dies and sponged on the reds.

Next up was the bird. I stamped using Memento Ink and coloured using Copic markers as follows: Breast  YR01, YR21, YR02; Feathers E15, E29, YR09; Beak YR23, YR21.

Using a tiny hole punch I made the perch for the bird to sit on colouring a piece of cardstock with the browns. I attached foam squares to the bird and the perch before attaching it to the card front.

This was such a fun card to make, and I hope you will give it a try.

Floral Fields

Saturday, May 21st, 2022

Hello crafters, Kia here with you today to share my Random Act of Cardness using prompt word “Dies”. For my card today I am using Tim Holtz Floral Field die.

I die cut the above flowers using Arches cold press watercolour paper, and to paint I am using Daniel Smith’s dot card, along with colours from the Ultimate Mixing Set.

My background is done again using Daniel Smith watercolours in Ultramarine Blue with Quinacridone Rose dropped in. The idea for the colours comes from a house in my neighbourhood whose garden has reds, oranges and a pop of yellow, along with green hedges. I think it is a fun mix of colours.

For my second card I used a Tim Holtz stencil for the background using Rainbow colours. I used distress oxide inks for the background.

To die cut the flowers I used Van Gogh black watercolour paper, which adds texture and is good and sturdy.

I used pink glitter ribbon where the join of the paper is from the stencil. I was concerned about that, but I think it works okay.

Celebrate

Monday, March 28th, 2022

Hello all, Kia back with you today for Day 28 of our Random Act of Cardness series. Today’s card prompt is Celebrate, and that is the continued Celebration of Scrap’n Stamp’s Birthday.

For my card today I am using the Hampton Art Cupcakes, and have used Copic markers to colour, along with some distress oxide inks and a stencil.

To begin I first die cut the Paper Rose, which cuts into two pieces. The frame and the centre portion, which I am using for the stamped cupcakes.

To do the stamping I first stamped a couple of pieces using Gina K Design Magic Masking Sheets and Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black. I then stamped the three cupcakes across the bottom of my card panel.

Using the masking paper I covered the two cupcakes on the right and stamped the background cupcake on the right. I then changed the masking paper to the left cupcake bottom row and stamped the cupcake in the background left side.

I then began my colouring using Copic markers. To colour the cupcake bottoms I went from darkest to lightest colours.

On the bottom row from left to right I used: Y21, Y35, Y38, YR07; then BV01, BV02 and BV04; R20, R22, R24 and R29; and in the rear left to right B60, B32, B34, B37 and BG10 and BG10, BG13, BG49.

Moving on to the stencil work I covered the the cupcakes with the masking papers and stenciled the upper background using Tumbled Glass oxide ink. For the lower portion I used the Tumbled Glass along with Broken China.

To finish up my card attached the frame and panel to the card base using Nuvo adhesive. I then stamped the sentiment using VersaFine Clair ink in Fantasia, attaching the piece to the card using foam tape.

I enjoyed making this card, and I hope you have enjoyed it as well. Following are Affiliate links to the store for the products I used, at no extra cost to you.
