Hello Sweet Friends! It's Sheri here today to share a Easter Card featuring the super cute Benjamin Bunny digital stamp and a sentiment from the Hoppy Easter stamp set. As I've mentioned in the past I'm a huge fan of being able to mix digital stamps with my stamp sets especially if I'm crafting late at night and want instant gratification to my retail therapy.
For my card I printed out this adorable bunny on some copic friendly paper and proceeded to color him with copic markers. (Pink Bunny Parts & Flower: R81, R83, R85; Flower Stem: G43; Flower Pot: BG10, BG11; Bunny & Shadows: C00, C0, C1; and Bunny Cheeks: R20).
I kept the design very clean by only adding a strip of pattern paper as a backdrop to the bunny. (A great way to use up those scraps we all have in our stash). I then stamped the greeting with black ink added some ribbon and glitter dots as embellishments.
The Texture Tiles 1 stamp set is the March 2018 Stamp of the Month and is FREE with a $75 order (after all discounts and before shipping & tax) through 3/31/18.
FYI- I was experimenting with distress oxide ink and realized that I should have used watercolor paper versus white cardstock for the direct to paper technique- oops! I used broken china, seedless preserves, picked raspberry and abandoned coral in swipes directly to the cardstock. It dried too quickly for the ink to move so I added splashes of the same colors to soften the background.
Once the background dried, I stamped the sentiment from Wait on the Lord with archival black ink, heat set the ink with a heat tool before die cutting with a stitched oval die and mounting onto an ornate oval die. I also added splashes of distress oxide ink in coordinating colors to the designer paper and stamped the script image from Texture Tiles I with picked raspberry ink over the sentiment oval as well as the black and light blue background panels. The butterflies from Majestic Monarchs were stamped in black archival ink, heat embossed with clear ep before watercoloring with the distress oxide inks. I fussy-cut each butterfly out and added them along with a few sequins to the card front.
Shimmer was added to the butterflies as well as the oval sentiment and fram using a clear glitter pen to finish off the card.
I absolutely love the different tiles in the Texture Tiles I Clear Stamp Set- perfect for adding texture for so many cards!! And don’t forget, Texture Tiles I is the Stamp of the Month for March! This means that you will receive this stamp set free in March with your $75 order ($75 net after all discounts) and you will also receive free shipping and handling (on $75 US only)!! Thanks again for stopping by- I hope all of you have a wonderful Easter and Resurrection Sunday!!
Hello! I am sharing a few cards today using stamps
from the March release
I wanted to use two of the Texture stamps together, with two colors, but I didn't like the combo I tried first so I ripped the bottom off and flipped it over. Sometimes those accidents make us get creative and the results are better than what we originally visualized! lol.
On my second card, I used Texture Tiles 1
and Long Stem Silhouettes
. I kept the card to two colors and let most of the background show. A paper flower in my stash was the perfect color to match!
I stamped Cocoa Mouse and the alpha letters by lining them up in the MISTI. Then I simply used a ruler to quickly draw some lines to "box him in".
Have a great day!
Hello everyone! Today I want to share a fun spring card with you. I love how you can build a colorful scene with the new Birds and Blossoms stamp set.
For this card I stamped the branch with flowers three times and a couple of the flowers and one of the birds. I stamped everything on watercolor paper and colored it with watercolor markers and a water brush. I added a black strip with the message on top of the stamped scene so I didn’t have to mask anything and I could hide a couple of overlapping parts of the branches behind the strip. I stamped the message with an embossing ink and added a white embossing powder to make it stand out. I distressed the edges of the watercolor piece with a blue ink and adhered everything onto a kraft colored card.
I used the Timeless Hymns
and Birds & Blooms
for this card.
Have a great day!- Lucinde
