extra large card…


This piece, of the technique I have been using over the last few postings, I just couldn’t trim down so i decided to use it with a 5”x7” card!
The base card is cream card stock with a layer of blue card stock.
On white card stock I made a background of Distress Paint mustard seed, picked raspberry, chipped sapphire and seedless preserves.
Once dry I ran it through the die cut machine with Crafter’s Companion “Country Garden” embossing folder.
Next I smeared Hero Arts unicorn ink over the high points and applied it to the card.
From a strip if blue card stock I die cut the sentiment using a die from love Nicole and glued it to the card front.



swirly hello…


Continuing with the technique that I have used for the last few postings I went with a brighter one for this challenge.
The base card is yellow card stock with strips of blue card stock to match the sketch.
On white card stock I made a background of Distress Paint spun sugar, mowed lawn, salty ocean and mustard seed.
This I ran through the die cut machine with Tim Holtz “Elegant” 3D embossing folder then rubbed the high points with Colorbox chalk Prussian blue ink.
I trimmed it down to match the sketch, backed it with a layer of blue card stock and applied it to the card front.
From another piece of the blue card stock I die cut the sentiment from Sizzix and glued it to the card front.



Christmas Craft Creations July Reminder...Anything Goes

 


If you check out my blog you will see that my favorite way to make cards is CAS (clean and simple) so when I had an “anything goes” challenge I went straight to a one layer CAS card design.
The card is white card stock that I stamped with Memento tuxedo black ink using stamped from the following stampingbella sets...
“holiday FUN sentiments”
“little bits Winter collection skating quartet”
“Oddball Reindeer Set”
To finish I colored the images with Prismacolor pencils.
