CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #268 – Colours

Hello there!

It’s the third Tuesday of April, we are having a new color challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches.

Our monthly hostess, Karen, has come up a beautiful color combination to inspire us. (tap the figure below for the details at CC&S)

When I was considering which stamp set I should pick for these colours, raindrops were starting to patter. I was inspired by the sound of dripping…

Here is a closer look at the texture…

Here is how I’ve used the color combo…

  1. Create an A2 card base.
  2. Stencil the raindrops with Nuvo Glimmer paste on the card base.
  3. Stamp the sentiment on card base.
  4. Stamp, color and die cut the images.
  5. Layer the images and black & white stripe with foam tape and double sided tape on A2 card base.

Thank you for spending some time with me.

I hope you can head on over to the CC&S blog to enter the challenge and to see more inspiration from the awesome Design Team.

Sweet Hello

Hello there!

Today I am sharing a card following the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. (Please tap the figure below for the details)

Here is how I’ve created…

It’s my first stamp set from Art Impressions and I do love the characters they’ve created.

I stamped the image on white card stock, colored with Copics and fussy cut (the hardest technique to overcome). I’ve wanted to try fussy cutting for a long time, and I am happy with the result.

Color Throwdown #486

Hello there!

Today I am sharing a card following the palette from Color Throwdown.

It’s really a beautiful color combo for the coming spring.

I have many floral stamp sets, but I seldom use them. There was alwalys something wrong with stamping solid and layered images.

After a process of trial and error, I got a good result of these floral.

I picked three Distress Oxide inks including Tattered Roses, Worn Lipstick and Spiced Marmalade which are the most similar colors to the palette in hand.

I applied the inks with mini ink blending tool, sponged slightly on the solid stamps and stamped on white card stock. I had to repeat the process four to six times for each image to get the perfect one.

For this card, I stamped about 30 flowers and leaves and die cut. Then, I chose these ones for my card. Arrange and layer them on card base with double sided tape and foam tape. I also added Nuvo crystal drops for decoration.

Although I’ve spend much time for stamping, I am happy with how they turned out.

Thanks for spending some time with me and I hope you can revisit my blog again.
