Tropi-Cool

Hi there,

I created this tropical card for the Stamping-Fairies Facebook Group:

  • stamp one of the toucans and some greenery from the Avery Elle Toucan Party set with Memento Desert Sand and color the images with Prismacolor Colored pencils
  • cut out a stitched panel from white cardstock and cut out a circle opening 
  • create a shaker element with a piece of acetate and some double-sided foam adhesive
  • fill the shaker element with green, blue and pink sequins
  • close the shaker with a background panel colored with Distress Oxide Ink Tumbled Glass
  • add a matching sentiment from the same stamp set with Altenew Crisp Ink Moss
  • use some Nuvo Drops Rhubarb Crumble as final embellishment 


My daughter Emily (8) created a similar project using the same supplies. Isn't her little scene just adorable?


Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs,

Be Merry Hot Chocolate

Hi there,

we are starting a new challenge over on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog and this time the topic is Classic Christmas:

  • cut out the Elizabeth Craft Designs Hot Chocolate cup from watercolor cardstock and all the other elements from white Soft Finish Cardstock
  • color the cup with Paper Artsy Fresco Finish Paint Dolly Mix and add shading with Distress Oxide Ink Dusty Purple
  • color the other elements with Delta, Touch Twin Brush and Copic Markers
  • use the Elizabeth Craft Designs Snowflake Border to cut a stencil from a piece of leftover cardstock
  • mix some Elizabeth Craft Designs Ice Teal Glitter with Gel Medium and apply it through the stencil onto the cup - let this dry thoroughly
  • create your own patterned paper by using the stamps from the Elizabeth Craft Designs Clasic Christmas Sentiments set and Versafine Clair Morning Mist
  • stamp another sentiment from the same stamp set onto the cup
  • adhere some birch bark to the cardbase and put the cup on top
  • add some splatters with watered-down white acrylic paint


The question for this month for the chance to win a $20 gift vouch is:
What Elizabeth Craft Designs die or stamp set would you select if making a Christmas card.

I hope you got inspired.

Hugs,
