Flower Baby Card

Hi everyone, Heidi here, today I would like to show you'll a card combining both baby elements and flowers!

To get this card started I die cut a stitched square panel from some Strathmore “Toned Tan“ paper and then I first stamped the giraffe from the Kennedy Grace Creations “Sweet Baby Mine” stamp set with Versafine “Onyx Black“ ink onto this panel (I also created a mask from Post-It paper and adhered that over the giraffe) and then I stamped the sunflower from the Kennedy Grace Creations  “Beautiful Bloom - Sunflower” stamp set partly over the giraffe, like it’s growing from behind the giraffe, with Archival “Watering Can” ink. For my sentiment I choose one of the sentiments from the same Kennedy Grace Creations “Sweet Baby Mine“ stamp set and also stamped that onto the panel using the same Versafine ink.

Next I coloured both the sunflower and the giraffe with my Faber Castell Polychromos coloured pencils and the white coloured pencil from the Caran d ‘Ache Luminance line. From my Polychromos I used the following colours: 129, 103, 102, 185, 108, 168, 173, 187, 283 and 146. When I finished colouring the images I went over some of the black stamped lines, that I lost during the colouring process, with a black Copic MiltiLiner (0.3) and I draw a white line around the top part of the giraffe to place her more in front of the sunflower. For this I used a white Gelly Roll pen.
For some added interest I splattered with some Coliro Pearl Colors by Finetec GmbH in the colour  “Pink“ after covering up the sentiment and the giraffe (by putting on the mask again) and then set this panel aside to dry.

 In the meantime I die cut a slightly larger panel from some matching green card stock that I edged with some Memento “Olive Grove” ink and using a foam applicator tool. When the splatters were dry I adhered the two panels together using liquid glue and then I finished this card by adhering these combined panel onto a crème coloured linen textured card base.

And that’s it for today’s project! I wish you all a creative day!

Sweet Birthday

Hello everyone! First of all, wishing you all a very happy new year! It's Berina here today, sharing a beautiful and sweet card using the tic tac toe board for January!

I used the diagonal from the board - Die Cut, Embossing and Flowers. I decided to use the Splendid Roses for the flowers. I stamped the floral image using Memento black ink and colored the flowers with Copic markers. I used V09, V17, V15 and V12 for the flowers and G99, YG67, YG63, YG61 and YG03 for the leaves. I loved coloring these flowers. I cut the panel into 4" x 5 1/4". For the sentiment, I decided to go with the "Wishing you a sweet birthday" from the same stamp set. I gold embossed the sentiment and die cut it with a small oval. I colored the edges of the die cut with V15. I took a top folding A2 cardbase and colored the edges of the front with V15. I adhered the image panel on to the card base with glue and attached the sentiment panel with foam tape. I love how this card has turned ou…

Birthday Tea Party

Hello everyone! It's Berina here today! I'm here to inspire you to create something with our beautiful Mood board for December. I love the beautiful festive colors.

I've been wanting to use the Vintage Tea Cups stamp set the moment I got it I love the tea cup stamp. As soon as I saw this moodboard, I was fixated on using that stamp set.

I stamped the border image from the stamp set using Memento London Fog on the top left and lower right. I stamped the kettle and the cup with the same ink. I used Copic markers to color the images. I used BG15, BG13, BG11 and BG000 for the teal colored part and C7, C3, C1 and 0 for the remaining. I decided to add some grounding for the kettle and cup with the grey color. I stamped the sentiment using Hero Arts black ink.
