AAA Cards Challenge #118: frame

This challenge was chosen by our DT member Ksenija and it's Frame.

Our sponsor this fortnight is: Stamplorations.

For my card I made the frame by choosing two sizes of a stitched nesting die set. Any you have will do.
I made the sea by coloring a strip of Talens Ecoline (indigo) on waterart paper by Kippers.
Splattered it with Dylusions white spray as if it was sea foam.
I  diecut the sailboat from Joy! Crafts from sturdy card.

The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted ( brushed greetings II) and I stamped it with Versafine onyx black ink.

I  used taperunner to adhere the watercolor panel to the cardbase, then mounted the frame with foamtape and placed it on a slant. I also mounted the sailboat with foamtape.

This card was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest.

more birthday fishes

 But this time, not actual fishes, although I am not sure what category a Mermaid fits in ;-).
The Less is More Challenge this week is: from your bits box and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is : Bright and cheerful.

For my card I inkblended a circle as sea onto the cardbase (Versamagic Sea breeze and Turquoise gem and a little Distress Oxide Mermaid lagoon).

I had a stash previously diecut and left over from another project.
The mermaid is from My Favorite Things ( Mermazing) and the turtle is from C.C. Designs (under the sea). The seaweed i diecut from blue green colored card.
I used foam for the mermaid and the other bits are stuck down with liquid glue.
I also had some black starfishes in the bowl, but they didn't go, but they left glue spots, so I covered it with a bit more seaweed.

The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp (birthday balloons) and I stamped it  with Hero arts hybrid ink.
There's a curved sentiment in the set, that's why I pulled this set, but the curvature wasn't the same as my scenic circle, so I chose to use the tiny one, keep more of the space empty .

More digi club images

I made a few more card with the Craftin Desert Divas digiclub  images I got.
I still have to do something with the aliens I also got, haven't had the chance.

This one's Over the Moon,  and it features the cutest cow I've ever seen, I colored her with my Spectrum Noir  markers and Crafter's Companion Neenah Paper.
The chicken wire is Tim Holtz/ Sizzix and behind it I inkblended the cardbase in blues, as if the sky : Distress Oxides Mermaid Lagoon and Blue print sketch (I believe).
I added a white gel pen dot on the eyes, I forgot one , but added it after I saw  whilst editing the photo...oops..also onthe bell to make it shiny.


The second card I hadn't shared yet is: No Bunny Like You

And again so so cute. I have a vegetable patch and in real life carrot stealing bunnies are not cute at all!, But I couldn't resist this one, also colored with Spectrum
 Noir markers and then I cut it out. Same colors of inkblending the sky and as "fields" I have torn some kraft card and stuck it on with glue or foam to the cardbase.

The sentiment I printed on the cardpanel and then cut the panel down so to make the window. I just eyeballed it, so real rhyme or reason to it's size.

Zomer kaart- Summer card, with video

Today's card is a summery beach card.
I was inspired by my AAA dt member Xenia, for the letters, When I saw it, I saw Hawaiian shirt and wanted to emulate it.
So for my card I measured the alphabet dies from Marianne Design (Col1449) so I knew where to stamp and color on the Crafter's Companion Neenah paper. I used my Illustrator markers for this, and I started with some shading, but quickly left that avenue.
For the "shirt print"I've used the Karin Joan Folia set (KJ1723) and I stamped it with My Favorite Things hybrid ink so I could use my markers, then cut them out.

Then I inkblended the cardbase with Distress Oxides (mermaid lagoon and Blueprint Sketch) and splattered with a water and bleach solution, then with white spray paint for the sea effect.

I diecut the sea critters from Marianne Design (Col1433) from colored card, but you can also use white card and use your markers of course. Out them together with glue and foamtape, added a white dot with a Sharpie on each eye, makes them look





Vandaag heb ik deze mooie zomers kaart gemaakt.
Ik heb er een Engelse en Nederlandse video van gemaakt, zodat je het proces stap voor stap kunt volgen.

Ik heb gebruikt: Marianne Design Col1449 voor de letters, Marianne Design Col 1433 voor de zee besten en Karin Joan KJ1723 Folia set voor het Hawaii shirt idee.

Ik ben begonnen door de letters te meten, zodat ik wist waar ik moest stempelen en kleuren. Ik heb dit gedaan met alcohol vriendelijke inkt op Crafter's Companion Neenah papier en heb Spectrum Illustrator markers gebruikt voor het kleuren, daarna het woord Zomer uitgestanst.

Voor de achtergrond heb ik Distress Oxides gebruikt  en een water met bleek oplossing voor de spetters en witte spray paint. Achteraf was dit wellicht niet het beste idee, want , ookal speels, het maakt het een beetje druk voor mijn gevoel. Wel super vrolijk en zomers.

Voor de beestjes heb ik gekleurd karton gebruikt, maar wit en dan zelf inkleuren kan natuurlijk ook.
Voor het strand heb ik een stuk kraft karton  in een golf gesneden en met foamtape op de kaart geplaatst. dan de beestjes erop of er achter en met lijm het word Zomer op de zee geplakt, vandaar  de gele letters, die springen er echt  uit zo.

Time Traveler card- inspired by David Tennant's dr Who

The Monday Challenge from Simon Says Stamp  is: transport it.
I recently got this set from Kindred Stamps: timer traveler and to  me it's David Tennant, my favorite Dr Who to date so I kinda colored him like I remember him.
His means of transportation is the Police Box time capsule rocket ship thing, the Tardis.
For a time lord Dr. Who seems to have a preference to spend his time in present day London..funny.

I started my card by making the galaxy background, for this I used 300grams watercolor paper from Schut (classic) it's textured so no good for stamping, but great for these things.
I used Talens Ecoline, Distress and Dylusions
Spray Stains for the splatter.

Mounted the panel with foamtape onto a cardbase.

Stamped the image with Simon Says Stamp intense black ink and colored them with Spectrum Noir markers and cut them out.

The sentiment is also from the same set and I stamped it with Versamark and heat embossed it with Papermania ultra fine silver. Mounted the bottom of the strip with foam and used taperunner on the upper bit. The Tardis always seems to travel at an angle and so I mounted it with foam also because of the watercolor paper and stuck "the Doctor" on top.

I have included two videos where I make similare galaxy backgrounds, but using Distress ink refills.

Using unloved stash - Stickers and Thickers, with video


For today's cards I dug through my stash again, I get gifted these creative stash things, but I never use them as I feel like a stamper, but then they sit there and sit there, so I thought I would use some of this unloved stash. And actually I thought these Llamas and Cactii were  quite funny.

So I decided on an inkblended sunset (Memento inks: Love Letter, Morocco and Tangelo and for the ground Rich Cocoa)

For the blue ones  I used : Summer Sky, Bahama blue and Danube blue.
The Purple one: Eggplant, Sweet Plum and Lulu Lavender.

It's pretty straightforward: diecut a circle, this one's a stitched one, but any will do, any shape too, trace the opening on the cardbase and inkblend there.

Stamp sentiment of your choosing on the panel and mount the panel with foamtape and adhere to the cardbase.
Adhere the Thickers and or Stickers and raise with foamtape if needed.

I used Sizzix Birthday by Stephanie Barnard with Versafine Onyx black ink for the sentiment, but again any will do.

Regenboog ijsjes, rainbow of popsicles

For this card I stamped the little popsicle in the Zomer set (KJ1713) multiple times in different colors Memento inks: Love Letter, Tangelo, Dandelion, Pear Tart, Summer Sky, Bahama blue and Grape Jelly.
I moved the cardbase rather than the stamp inside my Stamper's Friend.
I stamped every color twice, to get a good saturation.

Then I diecut Gefeliciteerd (KJ 1721) from black and white cardstock and adhered it to the card.
I love how the word has is own shadow diecut.

Then an array of glittery enamel dots, to pick up the colors in the rainbow, but I think they could be beachballs too...?


Voor deze kaart heb ik een regenboog van de kleine ijsjes in de Zomer set gestempeld (KJ1713) Ik heb daarvoor bovenstaande Memento inks gebruikt. Ik heb elke kleur twee keer gestempeld voor een mooie diepe kleur.
Daarna heb ik Gefeliciteerd (KJ1721) van zwart en wit karton gestand en op de kaart gemonteerd met lijm en of Stick it.
Ik vind het zo mooi dat de woorden van Karin Joan hun eigen schaduw stans hebben.

Daarna heb ik nog een regenboog aan glitter enamel dots toegevoegd om het effect van de regenboog te versterken, maar stiekem vind ik ze ook op strandballen lijken...
