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!

Wedding Card

Hola!

Today I’m sharing a wedding card I made using Altenew “Peony bouquet” stamp set. These flowers are just gorgeous, aren’t they? I think they are perfect for elegant wedding cards.

First, I stamped the flowers and the sentiment (from Mama Elephant “Whale wishes” stamp set) on Arches watercolor paper with Versamark ink and heat embossed them using gold embossing powder. I did some masking to have some leaves and flowers behind the big flower. I wanted to color the flowers in some way to get a pearly effect, so I smushed Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean Distress inks on a laminated paper and mixed the inks with Perfect Pearls. Then I colored everything using these homemade pearlescent watercolors. I love the shiny look, it’s so beautiful!

Then, I added Antique Linen Distress ink around the flowers to give some depth. Finally, I adhered the front panel to a blue card base using double sided tape. As you can see, I made a coordinating envelope stamping the big flower and heat embossing it with gold embossing powder.

I’m entering this card into Altenew April 2017 Inspiration Challenge

into Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Splash it on

and into Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Showers and/or Flowers

Thanks for stopping by! Have a nice day!

CASometry Challenge 3: Stage 1

Hi!

I’m so excited because I’m participating in Anna Kossakovskaya‘s CASometry Challenge 3. Randomizer! For the first stage I had to pick a random stamp set as a main focus for my card, and then choose any geometric shape.

I asked my boyfriend to choose a stamp set for me, and he selected Lawn Fawn “Booyah” stamp set. I told him “What?! A Halloween stamp set? A Halloween card on April?” And he said “Why do you say this is a Halloween stamp set?” A I was like “you know, because of the ghosts, the costumes, the Halloween sentiments…” Hehehe, anyway, I loooooove this set my sister gifted me on Christmas! I think it’s super fun and I was looking forward to using it, and now I have the perfect pretext :p The geometric shape I chose was Simon Says Stamp “Triangle Border Craft” die.

First, I trimmed a piece of black cardstock, die cut it with the “Triangle Border” die and glued it to another piece of black cardstock. Then I die cut three pieces of purple, orange and green cardstock and saved the little triangles for making die cut inlaying. It was a little bit time consuming, but totally worth it! I trimmed six stripes of color cardstock, two of each color, and adhered them to the upper and bottom part of the card base. After that, I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink, heat embossed it using white embossing powder and adhered this panel with foam tape to the card base.

Last, I stamped the images on Bristol paper using Versafine Onyx Black ink, colored them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers, fussy cut and adhered everything to the front panel with foam tape.

I’m quite happy with the result! What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by! Have a nice day!!
