I started by stamping the silly dog and bird, then colored them with Copics and lastly die cut them.
The background is both fun and vibrant. I ink blended distress ink onto watercolor paper and then I “bleached” circles for a bokeh look. For the bleaching, I took a circle stamp, painted water on with a paint brush and then stamped the circle onto my background.
Hello and welcome! This is my design team card for this week\’s Watercooler Wednesday \”Masculine\” Challenge and Dawn is our hostess.
I made a cheeky get well card using Simon Says Stamp Stacking Animals and this big bold sentiment from the Ranger Letter It Greetings stamp set. I also added a bit of Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the two beaks.
Hello and welcome! I am so pleased to be hosting this week\’s \”Masculine Challenge\” at the Watercooler Wedenesday Challenge. My husband\’s birthday is coming up and this is the card I created for him. I was going for a playful summery card.
I started out by inkblending over a stencil to create the background panel.
I then ink blended another small panel for the circle die-cut inserts. I let both panels dry for a few hours.
I die cut the decorative wave border and then three circles from a piece of white card stock.
I then die cut three ink-blended circles from the small panel.
I stamped, Copic colored and die cut the animals.
I adhered the white panel to the blue background using foam tape. I also used foam tape to add the colored circle inserts for an inlaid look. I popped on the animals with foam squares and added the sentiment.
My husband loves animal die-cuts so I think he will really like the card.
Hello there! I was at a cardmaking convention in February and saw this humorous dog and die set (Photo Play – Fetch) and knew I could make some really fun cards. Don\’t you love how the dog almost makes a perfect square?
I started by stamping Fetch and the small bird (SSS Stacking Animals), coloring with Copics and die-cutting. I knew I wanted to frame the little vignette so I die-cut a large frame. I had previously made the background (Tim Holtz Bricked Layering Stencil) in a bright vivid blue. Next I stamped the Hello sentiment (Altenew Pinstripes Background Stamp Set) on the frame. I wanted to emphasize the frame so I used foam tape to adhere the frame and animal die-cuts to the bricked background. I think this is a cheery little card that will be fun to send to a friend.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
I am going to a baby shower and the theme is giraffes.
My friend\’s daughter is having a little girl so I went with a pink and yellow color theme. SSS\’s Stacking animals is one of my favorite stamps sets and the giraffe always makes me smile.
I started by watercoloring a background panel with Rose Madder on Ranger Watercolor paper. I colored the silly giraffe with Copic RV04, Y00, Y06 and Y08 and then die cut.
My idea was to have the giraffe peeking out of a circle die cut window with the pink background. I stamped the Stamping Bella (Baby Carriage) sentiment added some Pretty Pink Posh jewels and paired with a bright pink envelop. This card came together very quickly.
I needed some more Get Well cards for men and decided this statement sentiment (Ranger Letter It Greetings) would be fun paired with the birds from SSS\’s Stacking Animals. I thought the baby bird hanging upside added a light element to the card. I mounted my card base on a \”gravel\” colored card to add to the masculine theme. Sunday Stamps has a Summer Splash Color Challenge and I used their color palette as my inspiration.
