Christmas Critters

Sunday, October 3rd, 2021

Hello all! Kia back with you today for Day 3 of the Random Act of Cardness challenges, and today is Critters.

I wanted to play with this new to me stamp set from Avery Elle today. It is such a cute set.

I decided I would use the Picket Fence Stencil Field of Snowy Trees as well. For the trees I used Paper Glaze in the Green, applying a thick layer to my card base. I then set it aside to dry.

In my mini Misti I stamped the images from the set using Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black. I then coloured using Copic markers and fussy cut when finished. I added a blue snow line and shadow to the card base using Copic markers in B00.

Once the base card as dry I stamped the sentiment using Ranger Archival Ink in Carnation Red. I then added the images to the card using foam squares. I also stamped the snowfall using VersaFine Clair ink in Blue Belle, and coloured with Copic Boo. I then added Nuvo Crystal Drops in Blue Babe to the snowfall. It is snowing very heavy as you can see.

This certainly was a fun card to make for today, and I hope you enjoy it as well.

Morning Coffee

Monday, August 23rd, 2021

Kia here with you today for the Random Act of Cardness challenge Clean and Simple. I think everyone has a different opinion on what CAS is, but for me it is for the most part a single layer card with a lot of white space. I will add a layer if I am using Copic markers.

This card is a single layer card. I used a stencil behind the mug, did the pattern on the mug via my Gel Press. Using a fan brush and watered down Candied Apple Distress Ink I added a lot of splatters to my plate, then pulled this print. I really love the look of the splattered paint.

For my gel printing I use Hammermill Premium Copy paper, which is beautiful paper perfect for gel press printing. I attached the print to a piece of 100 lb. cardstock and ran it through my Gemini Jr. At the same time I cut a piece of textured brown cardstock to use with the coffee die and added it to the run via my Gemini Jr.

It looks like the coffee was just stirred. I then stamped the sentiment using VersaFine Clair ink in Pinecone on the mug and attached foam squares to the back.

Picking circles from the stencil I used first a yellow marker, then used a brown marker to add the circles to my card front. I attached the mug to the card, then added the gel dots in brown. They look navy for some reason, and as I was doing this before dawn, I had better look at them to make sure they are brown!

I hope you have enjoyed today’s card, and wish to thank you for stopping by.

Die Stenciling

Monday, August 9th, 2021

Hello all! Kia here with you today to share my card for Random Act of Cardness, keyword Stencil.

To start my card I first stenciled the background using distress inks in peeled paint, twisted citron and squeezed lemonade. I knew I wanted to use this die by Spellbinders but I was not sure how I wanted to use it.

I opted to use opaque crackle paste for the texture that it would add to the flower, and to ensure it would cover the stenciling underneath. I die cut the flower using 80lb. cardstock to use as my stencil. This will not hold up so be sure to remove it as soon as you are done applying the paste.

I did apply the paste in a rough way, which adds even more texture to the flower.

Once the paste was dry I applied squeezed lemonade, kitsch flamingo and barn door to the flower using the small circle brush from my Life Changing Brushes. I then added Midas Touch Shimmering Pen.

Again, once all was dry I die cut another flower die piece from 110lb. Neenah card, and glued it in place. I then trimmed the card panel to size and using glue attached it to my card base.

I then die cut two of the Gina K Design hugs, one from red glitter card and the other from black cardstock, gluing them together, then gluing to the flower.

This was such a fun card to make and I hope I have inspired you to try die stenciling.
