Birthday bits

Birthday bits

I was just recently looking at a card that was kind of similar to this card and thinking of how much I liked it.  It is always fun to revisit a design in a slightly different way.

I started by stamping the different bits on the front of the card and then colored them in.

This card had a mind of its own.  I had about three other things I was going to do but none of them worked out.  The thing is when I was done and really looked at it I think it is a very happy card.

I started by making the background, I took each ink and swiped it over the paper.  I then stamped the flowers and cut them out and adhered them to each square.  I cut out the banner and stamped the sentiment on.    I then attached everything to the card base.

Life is beautiful

Life is beautiful

This card came together so easily.  I think that is one of those signs that it is meant to be.  I had made the background a bit ago and I think that is a big part of the card being so pretty.

I started by making the background.  I used alcohol inks and blending solution on a sheet of yupo and when I got the perfect blend I placed another shet on top, this is the top sheet.  I cut the background pieces to size.  I took a bit of ribbon and tied it into a bow and affixed it to the tag and then affixed a bit with the tag to the background.    I then attached everything to the card base.

Just married owls

Just married owls

I am enjoying making wedding cards.  I have been making anniversary cards instead since I tend to need them more, and I just kind of forgot to make wedding cards as well.  I also had a need to make wedding cards just a little more special so I needed to get the items to be able to do that.

I started by stamping the owls on watercolor paper, and then I watercolored them and cut them out.  I then cut out the other pieces of paper.  I then affixed the paper pieces to the card, and then I affixed the sequins.

Fairy magic

Fairy magic

I love playing around with alcohol inks, I also love playing around with stencils.  So, I challenged myself to figure out how to do the two together.  I had a lot of fun, and I think it worked out well.  I tried to use the alcohol ink lift pad that I have and it didn’t work at all.  I have just not had any luck with using it.

I started by using alcohol inks on a piece of yupo, I have no idea what steps I took exactly to get this color on the background, but I know I had fun with the inks.  I then taped the stencil down to the yupo with a bit of washi tape  I used alcohol blending solution on a mini blender to go over the stencil.  I then stamped and cut out the fairy, wand and sentiment strip and cut out the yellow circle.  I watercolored the fairy and her wand. and attached them to the yellow circle.  I then attached everything to the card base. I finished by affixing the sequins with a bit of glossy accents.
