I first made the card bases by hanging a circle die cut slightly over a scored and folded card base and ran through the die cutting machine.
I inked up white card stock with oxide inks in rainbow colours. I used the winter pine die to cut from the inked up sheet.
I added white flicks of oxide ink and finished with shimmer spray. I used my heat total to set it faster because I am impatient.
I die cut 2 circles from white card stock. 2 per card. For each card I used the winter pine die to die cut a tree out of the center and stamped around the tree with the pretty snowflakes included in the stamp set.
I then added foam tape to the back of the stamped circle die cut and attached to a solid white die cut circle. I glued the tree die cut into the opening.
I finished the card with some peppermint embellishments and a string bow at the top with a mini pom pom center.
Sharing 2 cards today using the seriously gorgeous Lisianthus flower stamp set from Technique Tuesday. This was such an easy flower to colour and is definitely going to be a set that I reach for when I need a floral card.
I made 2 cards with this set for my stash. Both were coloured with triblend markers and die cut with the matching Die.
I kept the same feel using stencils for the backgrounds.
A scalloped circle die cut was cut from one panel, a sentiment stamped inside of it. Floral sprigs from my stash were added behind the lisianthus for some extra texture.
I added a scalloped rectangle frame in white to the center of my second card with a soft yellow background. I attached it on top with foam tape to a stencilled panel. I glued the lisianthus partially in the frame and attached the sentiment on a yellow frame and attached to my card with foam tape as well.
I’m so in love with July’s Animal House Stamps from Technique Tuesday. These shells were so easy to colour, it made for 2 very quick cards that gives me those summer vibes. The set also has many variations of shells which makes it easy to change up your layout. For my 2 cards I picked out my favourite shells, did a slightly different layout for both but kept the cards similar in style.
To make the cards I did a simple stencilled Background 2/3rd of the way down my white card panel. I ripped that purple tape (I always forget the name of it) like masking tape. Overlaying pieces of ripped up tape starting towards the bottom of the sky I created a band across the panel. Left a gap then made another band. I then pressed my embossing pad onto the white space in the gap and heat set sand like embossing powder. I trimmed each side down on the panel. (Just eyeballed)
I added a blue polka dot panel to a white card base and added the sky and embossed panel on top. I finished the card with the shells attached with foam tape.
My sentiment was stamped on the white space on the top panel.
The pink sea shell card I used the same technique with the tape but made only one strip and embossed the entire bottom of the panel. I stencilled the background with the same polka dot stencil and filled in the space with the smaller stamps in the set and small Copic marker dots.
I Ink blended a soft blue on top of where the embossing powder ended and attached my shells with foam tape.
I’m so in love with this months releases from Technique Tuesday. These jelly fish from the animal house release are so cute and the sentiments in this set are so much fun.
I created two cards with this set!
I used Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers for colouring of the jelly fish and added stencilled backgrounds to both cards using distress oxide in the colour patina for one and the other tumbled glass, lavender, wilted violet.
I used the coordinating stamps in the set to fill the white space on my cards.
