4 Cards With Blue Backgrounds

Hello and happy Sunday!

It’s all grey and rainy here today … Which makes it a perfect day for crafting and blogging! πŸ˜€

I made a couple of cards over the last days and it turned out they all have dark blue on the backgrounds! It wasn’t planned – I guess I just felt like using blue. Two cards mimic a blue background as water, the other two use blue to create a wintery wood scene.

Beary Happy “Hello” with Lawn Fawn

Hello and happy Saturday, everyone!

Today I have a clean & cute handmade card to show you that features Lawn Fawn’s “Beary Happy Holidays” stamp set and a Distress Oxide Ink background.

HERE’S MY BEARY CARD:

beary happy card with lawn fawn

ABOUT MY CARD:

  • I stamped the bear images as if they were holding hands while ice dancing … I just needed a tiny mask for the right bear’s hand. I colored them with Copic Markers and added a few accents with my white gel pen.
  • For the background I die cut a big 3 3/4 inch circle from masking paper and masked off the bottom part with masking paper as well. Then I applied three shades of Distress Oxide Inks onto the panel: Spun Sugar, Shaded Lilac, Tumbled Glass. I so love these pastell colors! With the masks still on I added splatters of Copic Opaque ink as snow.
  • I stamped three snowflakes from “Beary Happy Holidays in grey ink onto my panel and glued it onto a light grey cardbase. I added some streaks of Copic G000 to the bottom of the background where the ice would be for the bears to skate on.
  • For the sentiment I took a smaller “hello” die from Lawn Fawn’s Magic Color Slider set.

For this card, I was inspired by the latest Lawnfawnatics card challenge with its “Happy Little Critters” theme. The cute bears have been sitting on my craft table waiting to be used since December and I am happy they made it onto a first card today. πŸ™‚

I hope you like the wintery design! Stay warm! β™₯

Floral Card with WOW Clear Embossing and Studio Katia (Blog Hop & Giveaway)

Hi there! How are you doing today?

Just in case you need some craft inspiration to take your mind off the fact that it’s Monday … πŸ˜‰ I have a lovely floral card to show you! And it’s part of a collaboration blog hop between WOW Embossing and Studio Katia so there is plenty of wonderful cards along the hop as well as some prizes to win! Isn’t that a great start to this week!

MY FLORAL CARD WITH NO LINE COLORING

I have a floral card for you that I made with one of the beauuutiful flower images from Studio Katia’s “You’re So Sweet” stamp set. They seemed perfect for coloring with colored pencils and that is what I did – using a no line coloring method. I stamped the image with a very light dye ink that isn’t visible anymore now that I added my coloring.

Studio Katia You're So Sweet Floral Card 1

I used a mixture of Caran d’Ache – Luminance Pencils and Chameleon – Color Tones Pencils. The brands are a bit different to work with and also when it comes to their prize point but I honestly like them both! You can get great results with both kind of pencils, I think!

For my background I stamped the Studio Katia “Mandala Flower” in a light mint ink and used the same ink for ink blending from the bottom of my panel. I added splatters with green ink to match the leaves from my flower image. A few of the gorgeous blue crystal embellishments picked up the color of my blossom coloring.

HEAT EMBOSSING IN CLEAR

While I chose a simple black color for my sentiment (to add a bit of contrast to the background) I heat embossed it with WOW clear embossing powder. I really find that using that glossy embossing powder on a sentiment adds just that bit of extra to a card design! Black embossing powder can get a bit messy but by choosing a black pigment ink like Versafine and WOW’s “Clear Gloss Super Fine” embossing powder I got a perfectly embossed sentiment. Here’s a close-up look of the card:
