Ink Blended Card with MFT Stamps

Hello! 🙂

I hope your New Year is off to a good start!

Today I am quickly dropping in with an ink blended card that I made yesterday! Aqua and lime green is a color combo that I find so fresh and beautiful everytime I see it on handmade cards but I don’t use it often enough myself. So when I saw the latest MFT Color Challenge (see banner down below) I knew I wanted to play along. For my design I got inspired by the current “CASE this sketch” sketch which I found super cool.

For my background I used My Favorite Things “Homespun Stitch Lines Die-namics” and then I did some ink blending over it with a light mint, aqua/turquoise and lime green ink. I also added splatters with those inks for some texture.

HERE’S MY INK BLENDED CARD:

Have an amazing week! ♥

Blue Lotus Card with Altenew

Hi friends!

Happy New Year’s Eve! How are you all doing today?

It’s been a few weeks since I blogged the last time … December is always so busy with all the preparations going on, meeting friends and sending out Christmas cards, too! I am sure a lot of you can relate. 😀 Now that Christmas is over I am back with a non-holiday card! I mostly send out birthday cards so I “shopped my stash” and made my first card using the beautiful Lotus stamps set from Altenew.

TAKE A LOOK AT MY BLUE LOTUS BLOSSOMS:

Altenew Lotus Card August Challenge

I used masking paper to stamp my three Lotus blossoms and also to protect them when inkblending over the bottom of my card front with yellow and green-ish traditional Distress Inks. For coloring I used Sapphire blue liquid watercolor. It gives such a great intense blue!

COLORING CLOSE-UP:

The colors of this card where inspired by one of my favorite cardmakers when it comes to floral cards: Erum from Vibgyor Krafts. She picked one of her amazing blue flower cards for the Altenew August Inspiration Challenge which I took inspiration from.

To finish my card I splattered gold, black and white watercolors over the Lotus blossoms and added a small birthday sentiment from Altenew’s Sketchy Cities Abroad stamp set embossed in Rich Gold embossing powder on black cardstock.

Thank you for stopping by today! I am wishing you all an amazing & healthy New Year with lots of time for papercrafting or whatever it is that makes your heart happy. ♥

CAS Christmas Card with Altenew

Hi guys!

How are you today? I can’t believe it’s end of November already! Time flies. And since it’s only a few weeks until Christmas now I recently made another Christmas card for my stash. Once more I was going for a CAS (clean and simple) design with lots of white space and only two layers in total. I used Altenew stamps and dies as well as Distress Inks from Ranger Ink.

TAKE A LOOK AT MY CAS CHRISTMAS CARD:

Altenew CAS Christmas Card

I have been seeing quite a lot of cards online where the “O” in JOY or SNOW has been replaced with a snowflake which I found really beautiful … And I thought I’d change that up a little by using the pine cone from Altenew’s Poinsettia & Pine as my “O”.

When I was coloring the pine cone I didn’t like the outcome so I actually colored a second one and this time made sure to use a loose watercoloring method where I leave some white / uncolored highlights (I have also blogged a flower card using this loose watercoloring HERE). I used two different brown shades of Distress Inks and added my watercoloring in two layers.

CARD CLOSE-UP:

For my background, I used masking tape to create a partial visual frame and then ink blended two shades of green onto it. To finish my design off I added gold splatters over the background and gold highlights on the Bold Alphabet die cuts using a Uniball Gel Pen.

Thank you for stopping by today! ♥
