Happy Friday! Anyone have some fun weekend plans? The weather is finally realizing Autumn is around the corner, so that’s nice. Might spend some time outside.
I have two cards to share with you today. I hope you like them.
I started with a piece of patterned paper cut down from a 12×12″ sheet. I used an adorable kitty stamp from Lost Coast Designs which I masked off with a Post-It note. I have a set of Scrabble stamps that I used for the sentiment- also masked with a Post-It note. I then did some stenciling with Distress Ink in pumice stone, rusty hinge and shabby shutters. I removed the masks from the stamped kitty and sentiment and colored them in with colored pencils- nothing fancy, just Crayola. A little clear Wink of Stella, some twine for the embellishment, and that was the panel. I used a Kraft cardstock base in keeping with the earthy tones. I really like how it turned out.
For this Rosh Hashanah card, I started with a piece of watercolor paper which I randomly painted with warm colors. Once that dried, I used 5777 from a package of vinyl number stickers from the dollar store. I made sure to stick them down, but didn’t press really hard. I then used a make up sponge to dab on some Inka Gold- I used two different shades of gold. I carefully removed the stickers. Slow and steady wins the race! The bear, bee, and beehive images are from a Newton’s Nook set called Winston’s Bees that I really like. I stamped them on white card stock, colored them in with colored pencil, fussy cut them and then glued them on. I used a black pen to add some details, a little clear Wink of Stella for sparkle, and added a little dimension with Nuvo Crytal Drops from Tonic Studios. Glued the panel onto a Kraft cardstock base, and called it good.
The photo really doesn’t do it justice- it’s really pretty.
