Winter Hearts of Magic

Hello everyone. Kia here with you today to share this adorable Penny Black image called Bundled Buddies.  I thought this would make a sweet card to make my friend for her granddaughter.

I started with a very pale pink card tent fold card.

Using Strathmore Bristol Smooth I did my background pieces using Nuvo Shimmer Powder Catherine Wheel. On plastic wrap I sprinkled the shimmer powder then spritzed with water before laying my Bristol in it. I then heat dried the piece and did a second round with the colour, again heat drying.

For the top layer I sprinkled the Bristol paper with the Shimmer Powder, then hit it with water, being sure to leave some white space. I attached the two pieces of Bristol together on an angle.

On the top piece of Bristol and using my snowflake stencil I applied texture transparent glossy paste and set it aside to dry. You can see the snowflake in the top right corner, and once you know what to look for the snowflakes will appear throughout the piece.

Using Fabriano Hot Press water colour paper and VersaFine Clair ink in Nocturne, I stamped the Penny Black image and proceeded to paint using the Nuvo Shimmer Powder as my colour. The red is several layers of the Catherine Wheel, and the green is several layers of the Green Parade. Once finished and dried I fussy cut her out.

I added the Bristol layers to my card base using Fun Foam and Be Creative/Scor-pal Tape. I then attached the Penny Black image using foam squares.

Using my Gemini Jr. I die cut the snowflakes and the Valentine Heart painting the heart the same as I did the scarf. I cut a couple of the snowflakes in half and tucked them in, and added the larger snowflake to the left.

On the red heart I added Glossy Accents to the corner and covered it with WOW Midas Touch Embossing Glitter and a few gems, then attached it over the snowflake.

To finish the outside I painted a light coat of the shimmer powder and stamped my sentiment using a red ink.

For the inside I again did a Bristol Paper panel using the same colours as on the front of the card. I die cut the snowflake frame, and sprinkled the powder on it and spritzed. then attached one of the snowflake halves and adhered to the background pieces.

The inside is finished with the sentiment stamped from the Penny Black Little Charmer stamp set.

I so wish you could see the shimmer from the powder and the stencilling, it is very pretty.

I think it is the perfect little card for my friend to give her granddaughter, and I hope you enjoy this as well. Thank you for joining us today.

This beautiful image is from Gina K. Designs called Hugs and Wildflowers and I have watercoloured using my Nuvo Aqua Flow Pens.

With using the pens you do not have to spritz before stamping, just colour the image and stamp. I am using watercolour paper from Fabriano for my card, which makes it easy to pull the colour from the stamped image out into the card.

I also did the splatters with the pens, then stamped and coloured the little bird from Picket Fence Studios called Chirp Chirp.

Thank you for visiting today.

Hello Crafters, Kia with you today.

I decided I would do a spotlight card for today’s post and settled on this image from Picket Fence Studios called Wild Rose.

First up I did the Color Burst background using cold press watercolour paper to use for my framing and bird. I used Ultramarine Blue, Pthalo Blue and Chartreuse, then dried the piece.

To make my frame I used my Elegant Stitching Die for the detail and a Spellbinder die to cut the inside part away.

Using Gina K. Designs Wisper White card stock I stamped the image with VersaFine Claire Ink in Nocturne then coloured the highlighted flowers with Copics. I attached the frames using fun foam.

I stamped the little bird on some of the left over Color Burst piece and die cut attaching to the frame on the bottom using glue and a piece of fun foam under his body.

To finish I stamped the sentiment along the bottom of the card using Archival Ink in Paradise Teal and doing several stampings to get the deeper colour.
