Hello to you. I hope you all had a good weekend. It certainly was hot here in Southern Ontario!

For today’s Random Act of Cardness I thought I would do cards with dimensional sentiments. For this technique we use dies and build the sentiment up from the card base. You can use any colour you wish for your die inserts, but in the case of the above card I used white.

The bottom layer is navy, as is the card base, then 2 layers of 110lb white card stock and finally the designer paper layer. In the picture below you can see the build of the dies.

For my next card I again used white for the build, but also included a black die cut and the top layer is a partially stamped layer of the white card stamped with the Aster in black ink.

First I stamped 3 of the Aster flowers on my card base using Memento ink. On another piece of white card I stamped 4 more flowers, the leaves and the butterfly, and proceeded to colour all but one of the medium flowers using Copic markers.

I colour from darkest colour to lightest colour. So in the case of the pink flowers, I started with the RV25 and ended with the RV13. The same applies to the green. For the butterfly I coloured with the yellow, then on parts went over the yellow with the RV25.

Once the colouring was complete I die cut the pieces with the coordinating dies, then arranged them on my card and attached using foam squares. I added in the sentiment, with the black die cut on the bottom, 3 layers of white card and 1 layer of the stamped Aster die. I attached using Nuvo adhesive and had the black die cut shadowing the white, with more showing as the sentiment went across. I hope that makes sense.

Just “Bee-cause” Card with MFT!

Happy Sunday and welcome back! Laurie here with you this morning to share a cute card made using stamps and dies from My Favorite Things!

I don’t know about you but January and February are usually slow buying months for me. I haven’t made many crafty purchases as I’m patiently waiting for the next Lawn Fawn release (preorder going on NOW!!!). So, until then, I’m going through my stash and using some of my favourite, older products from MFT.

One of my all time fave sets is the Rustic Wildflowers Stamps and co-ordinating dies. This is one of my go-to sets when I just want to do some stamping. It’s a simple, floral layering set that always inspires me. I stamped a bunch of the flowers and leaves with inks from the Gina K Designs 2018 Assortment, Spring and Summer Assortment of ink cubes. These have quickly become my most set used of inks!

I decided to add a couple of super cute bees from the Meant To Bee Stamp Set. I thought these sweet, little faces were the perfect addition to this card.  I lightly inked up a white card panel with some blue ink to layer on the card base. After playing around with the arrangement, I decided that all the elements were getting lost in the blue. This is where I decided to add the circle in the corner. To jazz it up a bit, I used my scoring board to add some simple lines to the circle.

It just so happened that the sentiment fit perfectly in between the scored lines!  I added the floral and bees with a combo of foam and liquid adhesive onto the partial circle. I foam mounted the circle to the blue, ink blended panel. Then finally, added the whole thing to a white, top fold, A2 cardbase. I added one black, simple, die cut heart with Nuvo Glaze over top.

And that finished the card! I love the spring feel this card which I’m definitely ready for!  Thank you so much for stopping by!

Tuesday with Tara {take 238} Be Creative

Happy Tuesday!

I’ve been playing around with a mix of some new & old supplies, working on ideas for our February Blog Hop- (coming up on Friday, Feb. 7).  One idea had me pulling out Color Burst powders (I used some I’ve had for a few years, but tried to pick colors similar to the new ones in this Sunrise Color Burst Trio by MFT).  The card I’m sharing today is a sort of happy accident…  I set the piece I was inking on another sheet of cardstock and THIS is the overflow spray from my spritzing and shaking happily away with my Color Burst 🙂

The colorful splatters you can get with Color Burst is one of my favorite things about it!  I decided to go ahead and trim it down for a card front!  In the spirit of keeping it simple, a fabulous sentiment was in order.  It seemed perfect for the Crafty & Creative stamps by Gina K Designs!  There are two stamps in this little set, and the second one is stamped inside my card.  Crafty friends really are the greatest friends!  And these Gina K stamps really are a dream to work with- I love the crisp black image I got using them with Nocturne Versafine Clair!

Inky hugs,
