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.

Hello all!  Kia here with you for today’s Random Act of Cardness.  My prompt name is Bunny.  But where is the Bunny you ask?  He is coming, so not to worry.

But first I would like to detail the front of my card.  For my background I did some smooshing with Antique Linen, Gathered Twigs, Walnut Stain and Black Soot distress inks.  Once the background was dry I embossed it using Tim Holtz Embossing Folder Doily.

I then die cut the carrots, doing the same technqiue using Crackling Campfire, Gathered Twigs, Twisted Citron and Rustic Wilderness.  I also died the ribbon with the Rustic Wilderness.

Gathering the carrots together I wrapped the ribbon around them, attaching them to my background using foam strips, then stamped the sentiment using VersaFine Clair ink in Tulip Red.

 On the inside of the card I did the background the same way as the front using Twisted Citron and Rustic Wilderness, and is also embossed with the Doily embossing folder.  I then die cut the grass from Impression Obsession and attached it to the background.

And here is the Bunny, which I have done using Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs. For the face I used Copic markers in 100, R11 and R22. The carrots are done using the Crackling Campfire, Twisted Citron and Rustic Wilderness.

From a left over carrot I made the crumbs at the bottom of the card using a tiny hole punch and made the sentiment using my Brother Label Machine.

I usually have a good time making my cards, but this card was particularily fun to make. I think it is all the details that came together which made it fun.

Thank you for stopping by today. I will see you next time.

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.
