CASometry Challenge 3: Final Stage

Hi!

Today I’m sharing my card for the final stage of Anna Kossakovskaya‘s CASometry Challenge 3. Randomizer. This challenge has been loads of fun!! I’m so happy to have taken part! I want to thank Anna for hosting this challenge and make us stretch our creative muscles 🙂

For the final stage, we had to choose one of the cards we made for the previous stages and use all the stamp sets, dies, stencils and embossing folders for making a new card. It was hard choosing a card, and in the end I selected the one I did for stage 3 using Lawn Fawn “Pizza my heart” stamp set.

First, I stamped the images on Bristol paper with Versafine Onyx black ink, colored them using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and fussy cut everything. Then, I used one of the dies from Lawn Fawn “Stitched borders” to make the stitching detail on a piece of pattern paper from Lawn Fawn “Perfectly plaid christmas” paper pad. Next, I used a die from Lawn Fawn “Stitched scalloped borders” on a piece of vellum to make a scalloped frame.

I used La Vida en Scrap “Escríbeme” stamp set to stamp the word friend on the piece of vellum using Versafine Onyx black ink, and then stamped the sentiment using the same ink. Next I glued the images to the vellum and then adhered the vellum to the pattern paper. I glued the panel to a card base, and finally I stamped the rest of the sentiment on the inside of the card with Memento Lady Bug ink and glued the pizza cutter.

I hope you like this last card for CASometry Challenge 3. Randomizer!

Here you have some pictures of the cards I made for all stages:

Stage 1: 1 random stamp set + any geometry shape

Stage 2: 1 random stamp set + using one stamp minimum 3 times

I hope you’ve enjoyed this challenge as much as I did! By the way, which is your favorite card? Mine is the one for the stage 3!!

Sakura’s Birthday Card

Hola!!

A few days ago was Sakura’s birthday, so I made a birthday card for her. I love that there are many cat themed stamp sets now and I can find any excuse to play with them 🙂

For this card I used Lawn Fawn “Meow you doin'” stamp set, that I think is fabulous! I stamped the images on Bristol papel using Versafine Onyx black ink, colored them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and fussy cut everything. The cat is colored like Sakura 🙂 Next, I trimmed a piece of watercolor paper and blended Worn Lipstick Distress Ink, trying to achieve an ombre effect. I spritzed the watercolor panel with a mixture of water and Perfect Pearls, and I dried it with a paper towel after few seconds.

Then, I used the big die from Mama Elephant “Peek a frame” dies on black cardstock for my background panel. I randomly stamped the fishbone, the mouse, the paw print and the heart with Versamark ink and heat embossed everything using white embossing powder. I also white heat embossed the sentiment on a thin stripe of black cardstock.

Then I adhered the black and white panel to the card base. I adhered a clear thread to the upper back of the pink panel and to an action wobbler, where I also adhered the kitten image. I glued this action wobbler to the pink panel, and the panel to the background. Last, I glued the two yarn balls together sandwiching the clear thread, and the sentiment stripe. Here I have a video of the card:

I must tell you that I almost can’t share this card. I was trying to film the video when Sakura caught the yarn ball and freed  the thread. Lucky, I can put everything together 🙂

I’m entering this card into Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #4: black/white & bright

CASometry Challenge 3: Stage 4

Hi!

Today I’m sharing my card for the 4th stage of Anna Kossakovskaya‘s CASometry Challenge 3. Randomizer. This week we have to use a random stamp set and the theme for the card must be friendship. My boyfriend selected Lawn Fawn “Lovable legends” stamp set. You may notice that most of my cards for the CASometry Challenge have been made with Lawn Fawn products. Well, that’s because I love Lawn Fawn! Maybe half of my stamps are from Lawn Fawn. But I also think my boyfriend likes Lawn Fawn too, because he is the one who’s picking the stamps for the challenge 😉

To make my card, I stamped the bigfoot on white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo black ink, and then I mirror stamped the second one using my MISTI and the back of a big solid stamp. As the mirror stamped image is not very clean, I trace over it with a Sakura Black Glaze gel pen. Then, I colored the images with ShinHan Touch Twin brush markers and fussy cut them.

For the background, I used Lawn Fawn “Woodgrain backdrops” stamp set, which I stamped on kraft cardstock using Memento Rich Cocoa ink. Then, I stamped the sentiment using Versamark ink and heat embossed it using gold embossing powder. The word friend is from Lawn Fawn “Science of love” stamp set (I partially stamped the friendship stamp) and the rest of the sentiment is from Lawn Fawn “Yeti, set, go” stamp set.

Next, I die cut an oval using Lawn Fawn “Small stitched ovals” dies and stamped the two dots (they are the cherries from Lawn Fawn “Just for you” stamp set), and the little burst  (from Lawn Fawn “Beep boop birthday”) with Versamark ink and heat embossed it using gold embossing powder. Last, I adhered the background panel to a card base using double sided tape, the oval to the background panel, and the bigfoots to the oval using foam tape. I love that it looks like they are hi-fiving! I think they are very cute!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a nice day!

 

CASometry Challenge 3: Stage 3

Hola!!

Today I’m sharing my card for the third stage of Anna Kossakovskaya‘s CASometry Challenge 3. Randomizer. This week, besides to use a random stamp set, we had to use embossing.

This time my boyfriend chose a stamp set that I was looking forward to using: Lawn Fawn “Pizza my heart”. This stamp set is so versatile and cute and fun to use! I had a great time using it!

First, I stamped the pizzas on Bristol paper using Versafine Onyx black ink and colored them using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. Then, I stamped the ingredients using Memento Bamboo Leaves, Peanut Brittle, Lady Bug, Tuxedo Black and  Rich Cocoa inks. I love the pepperoni rosy cheeks! After that, I fussy cut the images.

Next, I trimmed a piece of Bristol paper to a standard A2 size, stamped the ingredients randomly using Versamark ink and heat embossed it using clear embossing powder. Then, I blended Dried Marigold and Tattered Rose Distress inks. After that, I trimmed a stripe of white cardstock and used Lawn Fawn “Stitched borders” and “Stitched scalloped borders” dies. For the sentiment, I used La Vida en Scrap “Escríbeme” stamp set to stamp “amatxu” (that means mammy in basque) using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then used my MISTI to stamp “you’re the greatest!” using Memento Lady Bug ink, and then stamped it again with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Last, I adhered the background panel to a card base, the strip with the sentiment to the background panel, and the happy pizzas to the strip using foam tape.

I loooove this card. It was so much fun to make! I’m going to tell you a secret. Next Sunday is Mother’s Day in Spain, and I made this card for my sister Arantza. She is a wonderful mother to my nephew Telmo, and is always very supportive of me. So I really enjoy making cards for Telmo and for her, because they’re always happy to receive them. I know she probably is going to read this before receiving the card, but I hope she enjoys the card anyway!

I hope you like this card! Thanks for stopping by!

CASometry Challenge 3: Stage 2

Hi!

Today I’m sharing my card for the second stage of CASometry Challenge 3. Randomizer, hosted by  Anna Kossakovskaya. This week we had to choose a random stamp set and use one of the stamps of that set at least three times.

Again, I asked my boyfriend to select one stamp set and he came with these adorable meerkats from Clearly Besotted “I got your back” stamp set. Initially I was quite happy, but then I had a hard time deciding which kind of card should I make. Finally, I went for a simple card.

First, I die cut the polaroid frame using Lawn Fawn “Say cheese” die. Then, I trimmed a piece of Bristol paper slightly smaller than the polaroid frame to make my scene. I stamped the rock from the stamp set in the middle of the scene using Vesafine Onyx black ink, masked it, and stamped it two more times, to the left and to the right of the previously stamped rock, slightly rotated. That way I got a bigger rock to put my meerkats. I stamped three meerkats on Bristol paper and then colored all the images using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. Then, I fussy cut the meerkats, glued the background to the polaroid frame with double sided tape and stamped the sentiment “from all of us” from the same Clearly Besotted stamp set. Next, I adhered the meerkats using foam tape.

I wanted the photograph to stand out form the card front, so I trimed a piece of Canson Mi-Teintes brown paper slighly smaller than an A2 size card and glued it to the card base. I stamped the “happy birthday” sentiment from Neat and Tangled “Big top birthday” stamp set with Versamark ink and heat embossed it using white embossing powder. Finally, I adhered the polaroid picture to the card.

I’m looking forward to seeing the projects of the card makers for this stage! This challenge is so much fun!

Have a nice day! Thanks for stopping by!
