Lovely Birthday Card Inspiration

The best thing about creating cards is when it puts a smile to the recipients face. These sweet girls what I have stamped from Delightful Darlings Collection by Mayline Jung from Spellbinders will definitely make someone happy.

Do you enjoy this inspiration? I really appreciate if you pin this photo to your Pinterest.

CARD INSTRUCTIONS

First, I stamped these cute girls from the Darling Hugs and Darling Celebration  stamps with crunchy leaf inkpad, and after a quick heat set I colored them with Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers. MG2, MG1, PP2, PP1, FS3, FS1, PV1, HB1, HB2, BT1, BT2, BT3, TB2, TB4, CT1, CT3, CT4, GY3, MB4, MB3, MB2, MB1, FS9, FS7, FS6. For the color comparison charts for brands of Markers visit Kit and Clowder.

Next, I have created my own pastel rainbow patterned cardstock with paper piecing. To achieve this beautiful pastel rainbow look I have trimmed 0.25” x 8.5” sized strips from ColorEssentials Cardstocks in the following shades: Pink SandBeeswaxPeridotWaterfallPurple Mist. Just a little note, if you like pastel colors like me, then I suggest you to try the mentioned cardstocks, I am sure you will love them!

I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment with the Sugar Coated Sentiments stamp set with watermark ink to a piece of vellum, then I heat embossed it with white embossing powder. When it was done, I created the rainbow frame by using the Sweet Treat Box Dies. What you see around the card is the negative part of the die-cut I have created and you will see that piece in my next project. I adhered the vellum to the frame, then I added clay Sweet Sprinkles inside it and adhered it to my light pink card base made from Pink Sand cardstock and my card was ready.

Thank you so much for stopping by, don’t forget to check this beautiful release, it's truly amazing! And when you support a small business, you support a dream! Enjoy the hop! Hugs, Mona.

Pretty Pink Posh May 2021 release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hi crafty friends! Welcome to day 3 of the Pretty Pink Posh May Blog Hop! This release is a pure joy so instead of one inspiration I have more in coastal mood. I am really curious which is your favorite so if you have time, please let me know in your comment on my blog.


THIS PROJECT FEATURES


Do you enjoy this inspiration? I really appreciate if you pin this photo to your Pinterest.

CARD INSTRUCTIONS

The main idea for these cards was to create that coastal mood with boats, anchors and the typical blue, turquoise, brown white coastal color combo. When I saw the Flower Bouquets and Nautical Stamp Sets I already knew that these will be perfect for this mood too. 


First I created the backgrounds. I just trimmed them at 0.5" like the white textured wood cardstock to create a wood wall effect or at 0.25 to have stripes in random colors. If you don't like to measure and cut the cardstock all the time, but you love this look, then the Simple Strips Die Set is definitely for you!


For my third card I decided to create a dry embossed background, so I inked up my Pretty Petals Stencil
with Antique Linen Distress Oxide Ink, and run it through my Die-cut machine with a blue cardstock on the top of Tan rubber mat. The result is a cool dry embossed net looking background. When the backgrounds were done, I styled and layered them in different way. To the third one I created a shaker window as well, the Stitched Gift Card Holders Dies and the leftover die-cut I have used as a layering card.

USED COLORS

The next step was the coloring. I stamped the images from the Flower Bouquets and Nautical Stamp Sets with brown inkpad and colored them with alcohol markers. For the coastal color palette I have used the following colors from Spectrum Noir Illustrators: GY3, CT4, CT3, CT1, CG1, CG2, AG2, GT1, GT2, BT1, BT2, BT3, IB1, IB2, IB3, TN1, FS6, FS9, RB1, RB2, RB3, BG1, Blender. Classique: BG05. For the color comparison charts for brands of Markers visit Kit and Clowder.


When the coloring was done I created the sentiments with heat embossing. I have also created a pretty blue die-cut with the You Are Special Script Die. In the end I styled my cards and put them together. 

Thank you so much for stopping by, don’t forget to check this beautiful release, it's truly amazing! And when you support a small business, you support a dream! Enjoy the hop! Hugs, Mona.

Paper hugs for Mother's day? Oh yes, we can say it with a personalized heart warming card which has it's own magic. The secret ingredient for the magic card is to create a card with a memory which both of you share together. You still have time to create and send it, however if you can’t give it to her anymore, you can still make it for yourself to think about her and the good memories. Today I am up on the Lawn Fawn blog with a new video tutorial, where I am sharing this lovely slimline card which I made for Mother's day with coloring instructions. Let's color seal pointed cats together with alcohol markers.

For the additional supplies with shop links visit the thumbnails below this post.



Do you enjoy this inspiration? I really appreciate if you pin this photo to your Pinterest.


CARD INSTRUCTIONS


I stamped the superhero image from the Superdudes stamp set, as well as some envelopes from the Yappy Happy Mail, the rainbow from the Fluffy Puffy Unicorns and my favorite star from the Oceans of Love stamp sets with Jet Black inkpad.



For the coloring I have used Spectrum Noir Illustrator and Spectrum Noir Classique Alcohol markers on Neenah Solar White Cardstock, but feel free to try it with any type of markers you have with the right cardstock. For the coloring and the full process be sure to check out the video here.



When the coloring part was done, my next step was the highlighting. First, I have used white pencil then I continued with white pigment pen to make them more eye catchy and to pop the images out. When the highlighting process was done, I run them through my mini die-cutting machine which is always next to me if I need to cut something small.



The next step was the die-cutting I created one die cut from Bristol smooth cardstock with the Imperial Stitched Rectangles Dies, then I continued with ink blending the Zapp Attack stencil. First I have used lighter Distress Oxide Inkpads in rainbow order in the following shades: Tumbled Glass, Cracked Pistachio, Twisted Citron, Squeezed Lemonade, Spun Sugar and Shaded Lilac.

 


When the light background was done, I turned the Zapp stencil a bit, and I continued with the second layer through it. I have used the Peacock Feathers, Mowed Lawn, Fossilized Amber, Picked Raspberry, and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide inkpads. The result is a pretty high contrasted rainbow comic background.

 


Next, I have created die-cuts with the Hello Shadow Heffy cuts Dies. The thinner one from gold, and the shadow from white, then I stamped the sentiment to the teal-icious cardstock with the Super Dudes stamp set and watermark ink. Then I heat embossed it with fine white embossing powder then I cut it for the right size. In the end I styled all the colored images and die-cut pieces together and adhered them with 3D foam squares and liquid adhesive to their right place.

Do you enjoy this inspiration? I really appreciate if you pin this photo to your Pinterest.


CARD INSTRUCTIONS

 

For all the three cards I have used different watercolor washes. For these watercolor techniques I have used Art Essentials palettes by Jane Davenport to get this bright happy look.




For the first card I painted rainbow stripes with bright watercolor shades and a 14-size flat watercolor brush, then I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder. Next, I stamped the floral images with watermark ink from the Fragrant Flowers Clear Stamp Set  to a piece of vellum, and heat embossed it. In the end I added highlights and sparkle effect with white pen.



For the next card I created a distressed rainbow look to the background. I wet the watercolor paper and I did stippling on it with a 14-size rounded watercolor brush. I started with purple color and added the other colors to create this effect. Once it was dry, I stamped on it the sentiment with watermark ink, then I heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. In the end I added colorful water-colored florals which I have created with the Beauty in Bloom Clear Stamp Set and white embossing powder. 




For the third card I have created a rainbow gradient wash with purple, pink, orange, yellow, green and blue colors. Once it was dry, I splattered on it with white watercolor. Once this was also dry, I stamped on it with Field of Flowers Clear Stamp Set and watermark ink, then I heat embossed it with white embossing powder.


I have also heat embossed the sentiment too, but with gold embossing powder instead of white. In the end I stamped a few more flowers to the background with watermark ink.



Thank you so much for joining me today, I hope you get a taste to play with these amazing watercolor florals! See you next time. Hugs, Mona.
