  3. The beast friend was stamped with black ink, colored with Copic markers and die cut with the coordinating die.

MFT Color Challenge #80


Season’s Greetings

Today I am sharing a card with ink blending technique.

  1. Trim the masking paper into A2 size and cut a rectangle from the center of the A2 size masking paper.
  2. Adhere the A2 masking paper onto the watercolor paper.
  3. Watercolor paper was stenciled in Distress inks with MFT Drifts & Hills stencil, then splash some white paint.
  4. Stamp MFT Modern Trees & the sentiment on the hill with black ink, then peel off the masking paper.
  5. Frame the scene with a rectangle frame.

I have to apologize for the sentiment a little shift to the left, but I do love this ink blending result. This is for the entry of AAA Cards Challenge.

Christmas Greetings

I’ve watched Virginia’s tutorial video about watercoloring many many times, and I always wait a perfect moment to creat cards with this technique.  I think it’s time to start with a X’mas card.

The stamps are from                                           Simon Says Stamp Poinsettia.

  1. I dabbed wild honey Distress ink with mini ink blending tool and  sponged on the middle of the solid stamps for the pistil.
  2.  I dabbed abandoned coral Distress ink with mini ink blending tool and sponged on the rest part of the solid stamp.
  3. I sprayed water on the inked stamp, then stamped on watercolor paper.
  4. I dabbed  vintage photo Distress Oxide ink on the outline stamp and stamped on the coordinating position.
  5. I stamped the poinsettia with different colors and added leaves around.

I think I finally finished a pretty X’mas card with these stamps since I got them last X’mas.

CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #247 – Double

Today I created a X’mas card following              CAS Colours & Sketches

There were some ideas running in my head, and I chose the simplest  to enter the challenge.

The borders and the Santa hat are colored with Copic markers.

I also adhered the Santa hat with foam tapes on the top of the word “you” to add some fun. Hope you will love it.

All the stamps I used are:

  1. Hero Arts Sparkle Borders
  2. HERO Arts Very Merry Christmas
  3. MFT Beast Friends

Hello! My Crafty Friends

These flowers were stamped with black ink, colored with Copic markers and die cut with the coordinating dies.

I die cut the word hello with black cardstock four times and layered them together for the dimensions.

I also chose a yellow cardstock as A2 card base.

It’s for the entry of CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #246 and also for my application of DT Call.

Baby Greeting Card

My best friend when we studied at the university is becoming a mom of three. I am so happy for her and decided to make a card for celebrating her new born baby boy.

I stamped Denim Background with Distress Oxide faded jeans Ink on A2 card base and white card stock, then died cut the overalls with Bundles of Baby Clothes Die-namics.

I died cut different size of the scallop circle frames five times, stuck them together to add dimensions. I also decorated it with Nuvo glitter drops.

I discovered some similar clothes to the card I created, and I got them as a gift for my girl friend.

Hope she will love it.
