3-D Love Card by Jenny Gropp

Love this fun dimensional technique by Jenny Gropp!

 
 
I really was in the mood to color! So I pulled out the new Vintage Honeycomb Background once again. Every time I see this I think of Sandy's Hex Chart for Copics. I gave the background a little rainbow makeover and added a little die cut. After all the coloring I couldn't cover it up! 
 
 
AND then.... after I colored in the little hexes I thought it would be fun to make them all glossy! About halfway through I was rethinking that idea! LOL... but kept going. It is vibrant and very shiny in person!
 
 
Copics used: 
R46, R43, YR18, YR09, YR04, Y35, Y11, G43, G46, B41, B45, B26, BV17, BV11, V09, V06
 
 
The die cut heart is popped up for a little added dimension.
 
A little inside stamping from the set "Count the Ways" for that forever friend!

Coffee Time by Laura Fulcher

Fun card from Laura Fulcher using H777 Coffee Time, B13250 Pour Sip Sigh, CC188 Calico, CC196 Lg. Speck background and E13235 Coffee Ring.

 

 
Hi guys!  Today I want to talk about layering Cover a Card stamps to build up a background.  For my card, I started with a kraft notecard and stamped the Calico background on top (CC188) with brown pigment ink.

I liked the Calico a lot, but it looked really regimented for the card I was designing.  I decided to add the Lg. Speck background (CC196) on top of it using the same brown ink.  You can really see the difference you get by adding a second pattern to the mix.  You could use two different inks for this technique for a completely different look.

Next, to tie in with my coffee theme, I stamped the Coffee Ring image (E13235) onto my background with Hero Arts Latte ink (perfect name, right?) 

For the finished card, I added the Coffee Time stamp (H777)) and the Pour Sip Sigh saying (B13250).
 
Have a great day!

Thankful by Dina Kowal

We have a beautiful project from Dina Kowal today!

Dina used Pumpkin Pair, CAC Vines Vertical, Thankful & Thank You for Thinking.

I watercolored the pumpkins using Distress Markers, and stamped a few background  images with the marker ink from my palette.

The card is a Pop-Up Book Card, and in general, foldy cards hate me... but this one was surprisingly friendly. Inside the card there are just 2 cut lines, and the score lines were easy to follow.

Once it's all folded in the right directions, the center section looks like an open book.


Have a great day!

Thanks so much by Daniela Dobson

I wasn’t sure how it was going to look stamped in black ink, but I was going to give it a try.Thanks so much background by Daniela Dobson

I colored the white parts with my watercolor paints.Watercolor background by Daniela Dobson

For the sentiment, I used one of the brand new dies Greetings Top Edgers. I die cut it from black glitter paper. I layered it over a piece of white cardstock covered with washi tape. As a final touch I added enamel dots to the flowers.

Dragonfly Thanks by Laura Fulcher

Love this masculine card from Laura Fulcher! Laura uses D1339 Dragonfly, B5630 Thanks, E5552 Silhouette 2 and CC032 Medallion Cover a Card.

 

About five years ago, I taught a masculine card class and was determined to include a floral card into the mix.  After all, my favorite stamps tend to be flowers, leaves, butterflies, and dragonflies.  Why buy something special just to make a "guy" card?

For my card today, I used some of my favorite stamps and changed the color palette so that it would be a good masculiene card.

You may not have noticed, but I use this leaf stamp a LOT (Silhouette 2 E552).  It is just such a practical stamp to have/use.  I started with kraft cardstock, stamped the Medallion Cover a Card (CC032) on top with Memento Luxe Toffee Crunch ink and then stamped the leaves on top with Colorbox Chalk Creamy Brown ink.

When I finished stamping the leaves, the card looked like this:


I wanted to add a bit more interest to the leaves, so I added several shades of  brown Prismacolor pencil on top of the stamped leaves so that they looked like this:


To finish the card, I stamped the Dragonfly (D1339) and saying (Thanks B5630) with Memento Luxe Espresso Truffle ink.
 
Have a great day!

Love Card by Dina Kowal

We have a beatiful die cut card from Dina Kowal today.

I used the Love Border Word die as the focal point on my card, but this is actually the negative cut. I pieced in the floating pieces to fill out the word a little better, scored around the edges of the upper panel, and added some trim from my stash along the angle of the straight cut.

 

I used this week's Splitcoast tutorial for Whitewashing on the background - it's white embossed, then painted with white craft ink and highlighted very lightly with dye reinkers. The background stamp I used is Cover-a-Card Roses.

 Have a great day!
