Add a flower or flowers ~ redone

Something went wrong with my first attempt and I decided to use the good card stock and safe as much card stock as I can. That gave me the chance to create a second flower card;)

Add a flower or flowers

I enjoy Spring and Spring has sprung! And I love how flowers bloom^-^
I saw a card with more or less the same colour combination on pinterest. I like the colour combination and decided to make my own version.

Adult colouring postcard #51

Using finecolour markers.


Kissing technique

I took a solid image stamp (vintage shoe) and inked it up with a very light color (ctmh exclusive inks ~ juniper), just as the swap described. I inked up the background or textured stamp with a darker ink, su stampin' pad ~ lost lagoon. After that I pressed both rubber stamps together; that is the kissing....LOL. I didn't rubbed them together, I easily pressed them together, gently kissing:)

I finally stamped the solid image stamp on the base, which is white card stock. And this ... is how my ATC turned out.



Ingredients:
card board
hema card stock ~ postcard
ctmh exclusive inks ~ baby pink

Handmade colouring book postcard

Not everyone has those fancy store bought colouring book postcards So here a chance to make my own. I printed the image on regular printer paper, cut it and adhered it on card board. Then I noticed that I cut too much of the printer paper. As a solution I added decomache at the bottom of the postcard. With that, the postcard has a nice look;) The greeting is a finishing touch on this handmade postcard:)) I like it!

printer paper ~ white
santoro gorjuss decomache
sweetpea rubber stamp ~ greeting

June 2017 handmade notecard swap

The stamp image that I used here was meant for the Card making challenge #39. Unfortunately this image was a little bit too big and I had to look for another stamp image. All went well:))

I already had adhered this image to salmon card stock. So to use the image I created this card in the same colour range for the June 2017 handmade notecard swap.






Measurements:
card base ~ 5 1/2 x 4 1/8
card base layer ~ 5 1/4 x 3 3/4
three layers ~ 3 1/4 x 1 1/2
top layer (stamped image) ~ 2 1/8 x 3

Ingredients:
card stock ~ salmon orange
designer card stock ~ recycled package
designer papers
cutting die ~ corner
whiff of joy rubber stamp
memento tuxedo black ink
copic markers
ribbon
decorative pearls

Card making challenge #39 ~ 2nd attempt

I decided to make another card, because I used a bigger stamp image and had to scale the three layers down to do justice to the card sketch;) This card is for the swap exchange.





Measurements:
card base ~ 5 1/2 x 4 1/8
card base layer ~ 5 1/4 x 3 3/4
three layers ~ 3 1/4 x 1 1/2

Card sketch #4


I've been on two minds on which designer paper or designer card stock to use:) And two days ago I finally made a choice. Happy about that! So I choose for beautiful butterflies and some black colour on the background. I matted all the layers on black paper, which holds well and I end up with a less heavy card. I then choose designer paper with a white background for the second layer to match the black/white butterflies.

I coloured the stamp image a while ago and I used copic markers on this image. It was there to catch and cut in size;) Enjoy!

Totally forgot the two dots as shown in the sketch, so another photo with decorative pearls as "dots" on the card;))




 

This card is created using an OWH card sketch.
