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! ♥

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! ♥
