Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 63 – Card Sketch

Hello, it’s me, Rosali!

I am back with two cute critter cards for the current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge!

It’s a sketch challenge and I have two interpretations to show you. One is a fall card and the other one is a Holiday card.

CAS FALL DESIGN:

For my first design I flipped the sketch sideways! I did ink blending with Blueprint Sketch and Cracked Pistachio Oxide Inks and watercoloring of the images and die-cut tree.

USED SUPPLIES FALL CARD:

  • Lawn Fawn – Jump For Joy stamps & dies, Mice on Ice stamps & dies, Leafy Tree Backdrop (Horizontal)
  • Neenah – 110 lb Solar White (Classic Crest) Cardstock
  • Strathmore – Bristol Cardstock
  • Ranger / Tim Holtz – Distress Oxide Inks
  • Scotch – Foam Mounting Tape

ALCOHOL INK HOLIDAY CARD:

For the second card I used a previously made alcohol ink galaxy! Since I wanted the focus to be on that background I kept the rest of the card in rather neutral colors … And heat embossed the sentiment in gold to match the gold splatters of the galaxy and golden “ornaments” on the tree. I love the result. 🙂

USED SUPPLIES HOLIDAY CARD:

  • Lawn Fawn – Snow Day stamps & dies, Little Town Hillside Pop-Up Add-On die
  • Alcohol Inks
  • Yupo Paper
  • Wow – Rich Gold Embossing Powder
  • Scotch – Foam Mounting Tape
  • Gold Gel Pen, Gold Watercolor

Have an amazing week! ♥

A Dose of Vitamin SEA with Picket Fence and WOW Embossing (Blog Hop & Giveaway)

Hi there and welcome! It’s been a while! I am honored to be back with a blog post as part of the WOW Embossing and Picket Fence Studios collaboration hop! There are so many talented crafters involved, I am very excited!

MY VITAMIN SEA CARD

As I have already told my followers on Instagram (probably more than once! lol) that I love the ocean and everything about it. I also love whales and have been fortunate enough to see some in real life. They amaze me. ♥ So when I got invited to this hop, I knew right away I wanted to make a card with Picket Fence’s “A Dose Of Vitamin Sea” stamp set! I love not only the whale images but the great sentiments in it. I also got this holiday stamp set from Picket Fence that has Santas and penguins in it. Being the excited crafty girl that I am I showed both of them to my husband when they arrived and it was actually him that came up with the idea to combine those two sets! (I know, totally surprising to me, too! 😀 ) So, thank you, hubby! ♥

Here is my card:

Picket Fence A Dose Of Vitamin Sea Card 1

For the fontain I used WOW’s light blue Metalline First Frost Embossing Powder. I added a bit of sparkle to the watercolored water using an embossing pen and WOW’s Singing In The Rain Embossing Glitter.

I love how the penguin is floundering about in the fountain of the whale! They look like they have a blast, don’t they?

Altering Stamp Images with Masking (Winnie & Walter Leading Lady #4)

Hi there and happy Saturday!

How are you today? February has flown by so far and I am excited to bring you my last post as Winnie & Walter’s Leading Lady and show you another masking technique! It’s kind of a bitter sweet moment as I had so much fun creating with their products but I feel very lucky to have gotten this opportunity!! 🙂

winnie_walter_leading_lady_rosali_february2019

So far, I have been telling you something about “masking backgrounds with stencils & with dies”, and about “building a scene with masking”. Today I am gonna focus on:

ALTERING STAMP IMAGES WITH MASKING

winnie and walter altering stamp images 3

I always like to come up with ways to use my supplies in a way they weren’t necessarily intended for and make the most out of them that way! This goes especially for Christmas stamps … I don’t know about you but mine don’t get used enough because I have a lot of them and they are all so cute! Therefore, I am gonna show you two ways of altering stamp images so you can use them the whole year round! I will try to explain everything as clearly as possibly – but if there are any questions left just leave me a comment under my post, okay?

LET’S TAKE A CLOSER LOOK AT THE FIRST CARD:

Altering Stamp Images 4

The cute Volkswagen Beetle stamp from “Snowy Holiday with Evelin T Designs” originally has a tree and Christmas presents on top of it. Here’s two ways to get rid of those so you end up with just the car:

  • Use washi or painter’s tape to mask off the tree and presents when inking up your stamp. You can also use your finger to wipe off ink if you have any left where you don’t want it.
  • I cheated a little bit and did it the lazy way: I stamped and watercolored the car image and then simple cut the tree and presents off with my scissors.

I still did some masking on the background: I used a strip of Post-It tape over my background panel and blended an aqua-colored ink sky over it. It’s the quickest way to create a background for a simple scene!

Since balloons are often translucent I just stamped those on top of the ink and colored them in with Copics. I took sentiments stamps from “So Tweet with Evelin T Designs” and heat embossed “love” in gold on Vellum. I also added a bit of gold to the headlights and gold rhinestones and sequins. I am happy with how the non-traditional wedding car(d) turned out! 😀

SECOND CARD: ALTERED YETI IMAGE

winnie and walter altering stamp images 1

I had this idea in my head of a yeti family on a baby card! So I took the “Yetitide Greetings with Evelin T Designs” stamp set and combined two stamps into one.

HERE’S A MASKING HOW-TO:

1. Take the first stamp (yeti with baby yeti and sleigh) and use washi or painter’s tape to mask off the sleigh and the piece of rope in the yeti’s hand before inking it up. You can also use your finger to wipe off ink.
2. Stamp this yeti and baby yeti after you removed the washi tape. Stamp it again on a piece of masking paper, fussy cut it and put it over your stamped image.
3. Now take the second stamp (caroling yetis) and place the stamp over your masked image so that the left caroling yeti fits and the music book won’t show. Remove the mask when finished. Tadaaa!

I adhered my yeti family using foam tape. I created a frame out of the biggest rectangles from “Tilda Cutaways”. For the background I repeatedly stamped circles from the “Scenery: Dotty” stamp set in my favorite shades of mint and blue. Then I used the “Baby Cutaway” and cut it right into my background and adhered the panel flat onto a teal cardbase. The “Welcome” sentiment stamp from “So Tweet with Evelin T Designs” made my baby card complete!

COPIC GUIDE & COLORING TIPS:

Card 1

Balloons: RV02, RV04

TIP 1: I used watercolors to color the red car. To get enough shading it’s best to add at least two layers of watercolor. Let the first layer dry completely, then add more pigment with a second layer.

TIP 2: After fussy cutting the beetle I went around the cutting borders with a black marker to get a finished look. I learned this from Kristina Werner when I started cardmaking and it makes a big difference! 🙂
Card 2

Yeti’s faces: YR30, E51, E21, R20
Yeti’s fur: W1, W3, W4, W5 & B00
Scarfs: BG15, BG09 & B14, B06, B37

TIP 3: For some texture and additional shading, add tiny dots with the tip of your marker like I did on the fur of all three yetis.


I’d like to thank all of my fellow crafters for leaving comments and reading my long posts! 😀 I hope to have inspired you a little bit. And a huge THANK YOU again to Shay for having me on their blog this month, it has been a crafty dream come true!! ♥

For today’s challenge over on Winnie & Walter’s blog, any type of masking and altering a stamp image will be fine! I am totally aware that my second example with the yetis might be a little complicated so that not everyone feels like it. 😉

And don’t forget to leave comments here on my blog for your chance to win a 30 $ gift certificate sponsored by Winnie & Walter. I will pick one random winner from all four Leading Lady blog posts by the end of February 24th.
