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...

Birthday Fishes

The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is: frame it, showcasing Memory Box products.

I think I spent more time looking for the I'm a narwhal stampset. I looked under M for Memory box and then W cos I thought maybe it's Wow, in the end I left it but then found it under P for Poppy Stamps haha...anyway...
I used the Memory box Under the sea collage die and the Simon Says Stamp  Best Fishes set for the sentiment.

I cut out the sea collage from a panel, stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx black ink and then did some inklending on the cardbase.
For the inkblending I used : Versamagic inks Turqoise gem and Distress Oxide ink Mermaid lagoon.
Ocean Depth, Sea breeze and
They both react to water, but not so well on this cardstock, but I splattered it anyway with a water and bleach solution. It's faint but you can see it.
I didn't want to use any white splatter or silver or blue even, although I use the distress spray stains for this a lot, i thought the effect  of the frame would be lessened.
I like the contrast of the white with the blue centre, it really pops.

Mounted the panel with foamtape and adhered it to the cardbase.

AAA Cards Challenges #117: Geometrics

This fortnight the challenge is: Geometrics and was picked by  DT member Elaine's.
Our Sponsor is Uniko  and the prize is the choice of one in stock stamp set.

For my card I used a hexagon die from Nellie Snellen and diecut it 7 times our of a cardpanel, the die is appr. 2cm in diameter and I staggered them in a fun way.
I then Stamped the sentiment from Uniko (All occasion sentiments #6) with Versafine Onyx black ink.

I traced the openings onto Crafter's Companion Neenah paper and then colored the shapes with Spectrum Noir markers (dr3, or2,ct3, cg3,lg5,ib3, lv3) and lathered the hexagons with Nuvo Shimmer pen for shine. You could also cut out glitter paper in
a rainbow order and inlay the openings...I only thought of this whilst putting glitter pen on top lol. Adhered the rainbow panel with liquid glue, so I could place it with some wiggle time, then mounted the panel with foamtape and adhered it to a cardbase.

For more information, more DT examples or to play along the AAA cards Challenge, see this.

Masculine card with video

With Father's day coming up in some countries, I thought I'd give you some inspiration for masculine cards, birthday or other occasions, and you can use your scraps if you have any.

I basically made all the cards kind of the same, but you can  change them to portrait if you want and or change the direction of the patterned paper banner if you prefer. I make one in the video, but the idea is the same for all, mounted the patterned paper with just tape runner and the  banners with foam tape.
