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!

Hunny Bunny

Hi!

Today I have a super sweet card featuring Neat and Tangled “Cottontail Cuties” stamp set, designed by Elena Roussakis. I looooove these cute images and I was looking forward to use them.

I also wanted to participate in the current Little Tangles challenge, themed watercolor. Although watercolor scares me because I feel I don’t have any control, I thought this challenge is the perfect occasion to practice.

First, I stamped the images on Canson watercolor paper using Versafine Onyx Black ink.  I did some masking to put the carrot on the girl’s hand and the bunny sitting on the stump, which is from Mama Elephant “Pix’s favorites” stamp set (you could use the one in the Neat and Tangled “Lumberjack love” stamp set, but I don’t have that stamp set!).  Then I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers to watercolor the images. I had a great time watercoloring everything!

After letting it air dry, I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black ink using my MISTI for a perfect stamping, and the little heart, from Neat and Tangled and Simon Says Stamp “Cute Chicks” stamp set, using Memento Lady Bug ink.  Then, I adhered the panel to a Lawn Fawn pattern paper from the “Perfectly Plaid Christmas” collection, and adhered everything to the card base with foam tape.

I love the result, and I’m sure I’m going use watercolors more often!

I’m entering this card into the Little Tangles Challenge #79: Watercolor

Geometric Mice

Hi!

Today I have a card for the Lawnscaping geometric challenge. I decided to take the challenge to the limit and design a geometrical background with the computer, as you can see in the following picture. By the way, I used these super cute mice from Lawn Fawn “Thankful mice” stamp set.

I printed out the previous image to use as a guide for all the stamping that I did using my MISTI. I stamped everything on Canson Bristol paper with VersaFine onyx black ink and colored everything with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. I’m not going to lie, this was time consuming and stressful because I was thinking I was going to mess everything up at any moment. Thankfully it ended fine 🙂

I stamped the tiny hearts with Memento lady bug ink and used Glossy Accents for a shiny touch. For the sentiment I used Lawn Fawn “Harold’s abc”, stamped it on black cardstock using VersaMark ink and heat embossed it using white embossing powder. I adhered the sentiment banner to the front panel with foam tape.

I adhered the front panel to a piece of black cardstock and then adhered it to a white card base using double sided tape.

I really love this card, maybe because I love geometry, I don’t know! I hope you like it too!

Have a cheeseful day! 😛

Picnic Card

Hi!

Today I’m sharing a card I made using mirror stamping technique. I used the amazing Mama Elephant “Tandem Ride” stamp set, designed by Luli Bunny. How cute are these critters? The first time I saw this stamp set I thought it maybe didn’t had many possibilities because all the animals are looking in the same direction. But then I thought I could mirror stamp the images for many more possibilities and now I wanna buy the “Tandem Extras” stamp set! 🙂

My first idea was to make a picnic card. Yay! I love picnics!! For placing my critters face to face I mirror stamped the bear using my MISTI. The mirror stamped image was not perfect but I fixed it with a Sakura black glaze gel pen. Then I stamped all the other images with VersaFine onyx black ink on Canson Bristol paper and colored everything using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.

For the picnic gingham I stamped Lawn Fawn “Gingham Backdrops” big stamp on regular cardstock with Memento lady bug ink, and for the tree I stamped Lawn Fawn “Woodgrain Backdrops” stamp on Bristol paper using Memento peanut brittle ink. When I colored this background the stamped ink got darker, the effect I was looking for.

For the sky, the hill and the tree top I used color cardstock. I don’t have any die cutting machine so I cut the hillside and the tree trunk with scissors, and the tree top using Martha Stewart circle cutter. I stamped the sentiment from the Lawn Fawn “Gingham Backdrops” stamp set on the sky using Memento tuxedo black ink and, finally, I adhered everything together with double sided tape, foam tape and Tombow mono multi liquid glue for the smallest pieces.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I wish I had a die cutting machine to make this kind of cards. I really wish those wonderful hillside dies, grass dies, tree dies… I hope I have a Big Shot soon!! I know I will use it to make variations of this card using Distress inks or patterned papers for the sky, the tree and the hill.

I hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by!
