Colour Me #68 – Thank You Card using Lawn Fawn

Cards, Thank You Cards

Welcome! It’s Wednesday already, so that means another new Colour Me challenge. The challenge this week is to create a project using navy, teal, pink, and yellow.

CMCC68

I’ve been reaching for my Critters in the Jungle set quite a bit recently, so that’s where I started for inspiration for my card. Make sure to watch the YouTube video to see how I made it–

I started at my computer in Silhouette Studio to cut the stitched window on my cardbase. Next, I masked off the area on the inside of the card that would show through the window. I used a navy and teal ink to blend on the background. While I let the background dry, I stamped, coloured, and die cut the birds.

After the background was dry and smooth, I stamped the thank you greeting and smooshed Versamark ink over the area before heat embossing with clear. In real life, the clear embossing powder gives a really shiny texture to the card so it finishes it off nicely.

Finally, I adhered down the birds and called it a day.

Thank You Card using Lawn Fawn with Spectrum Noir Makers

Cards, Thank You Cards

Welcome! Today is an exciting day! I’m thrilled to be back on the Scrapbooks by Design blog today and bursting to share the card I created this week. This post is my first ever using my brand new Spectrum Noir alcohol markers!

I was gifted a large set of Spectrum Noir markers from my parents. To celebrate, and to practice, I made this thank you card to send my folks back home–

As soon as I saw the new Scripty Sayings stamps from Lawn Fawn, I was inspired to use the long greetings as vines. The new Critters in the Jungle set is perfect to use with the idea, especially since there is a climbing monkey included in the set!

Since I was in the mood to celebrate I went all out. There is everything, except the kitchen sink on this card, so I have TWO videos to share this week. The first is the tutorial of how I created and assembled the card, and the second is the Spectrum Noir Colouring and first impressions (sneak peek–they are AWESOME!).

Supplies:

I’m going to play along with the Virginia’s View Challenge #14, Layers and Dimension using this card–

Thanks so much for dropping by today! I hope to see you back here again soon. Until next time,

Colour Me Challenge #67 – What’s Brewing? Ink Smooshing Technique

Any occasion, Cards, Techniques

Welcome! This week I’m ink smooshing for the Colour Me challenge. The challenge this week is to create a project using a pale green, and two shades of pink.

CMCC67

I’ve been dying to try out the very popular ink smooshing technique, so I seized the opportunity with this week’s challenge. Make sure to watch the video to see how I made my card this week–

To do the smooshing, I used Distress Ink, an acrylic block, and my mini mister filled with water. After applying each colour, I heat set the paper to make sure the colours didn’t run or bleed. I like how the smooshing splotches made a kind of messy cloud above my tea pot, kind of like a genie in a bottle. Ink smooshing was tonnes of fun so I hope you’ll try it too!
