Baby dinos


Isn't this the cutest little Welcome Baby card? with Baby Dinos? I think so ;-)

I've used the Last Minute Manda Baby Dinos, you can find them in her store on Etsy.

I printed them, colored them with Spectrum Triblend Markers and cut them out.

For the cardbase I applied Distress inks through a home made stencil (just hexagons nesting dies ) and whatever ink was left on  my inkblending brushes.

The sentiment I made on the computer.

Mounted the dinos with one or two layers of foamtape and added them to the card.

AAA Cards Challenges #215: NO Layers + Plant, Grow, Farm


This fortnight we're all about NO layers and an optional twist chosen by Sue: Plant/grow/farm. You can interpret this very widely. I used to grow veg, Sue has a farm, but just  sowing a seed or  picking your own is fab too,  and of course you don't have to use the twist, just the NO Layer.

For my card I masked of a rectangle as the stamp from Studio Light is not long enough to fit, I rather chop it off a little and frame it.

After masking I applied Distress inks Cracked Pistachio and Tumbled Glass and whatever was left on my blending tools as always, I don't have one for every colour.

I stamped the Studio Light stamp

(StampSL353) and the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp (it's your Birthday 3x4) with Versafine ink and heat seat it all. Removed the masking tape.

Kitty Cat frame shaker part 2- I finished it according to some suggestio...

Toucan Surf

Hiya, this week I pretend to be at the beach with the Whimsy Stamps digi: Toucan Surf.
I printed it  and colored it with alcohol markers like Spectrum Noir and Graph-it Brush, cut it out.
For my scene I glued white and sand like cardstock, ripped the edges to make it look  like the water's edge.
On the cardbase I stamped the sentiment from  Simple Sentiment  Strips clearstamp, also Whimsy Stamps.
 Applied Mermaid Lagoon Distress inks and sprayed with water for texture.
Mounted the image and "beach"with foam tape and adhered it all together.

BBQ time, or is it?

This week I've used the Dragon BBQ digi from Whimsy stamps.

Prepped image and sentiment  on the pc, printed it and then colored it with alcohol makers, matted the panel and adhered it to the cardbase with foamtape.

Not just CAS but also QAE (quick and easy), I like to color watching a little show or movie on the pc, time well spent ;-)

I thought the sentiment was funny and perfect for this image and I took inspiration from a meme about brownies I saw a few years ago.  

I had Father's day in mind, it's in June in the Netherlands, might be different, but it's also cool for any Masculine birthday or just to make someone giggle.

You can find the digi in the Whimsy store:  https://whimsystamps.com/products/dragon-bbq-digital-stamp?_pos=1&_sid=f16e70b51&_ss=r
