Kindness

I just love this quote from Anne Frank, ” You can always give something, even if it is only kindness.” This is a stamp that I will continue to use.

Clever Dexter’s January Challenge Theme was Kindness, so I decided to combine this challenge with MFT Color Challenge.

I used the flower stamp from Unity Stamp Friendship Blooms Stamp Set by Gina K Designs and the sentiment is from Unity Stamp Words of Hope Stamp Set by Graciellie Design. I really wanted the sentiment in bright pink, but the only pink ink pads I had were all baby or light pink. It’s an excuse to go online shopping. 😊

You Make My Heart Bloom

Happy Friday! I went for a red monochromatic card look for Gina K Designs January Challenge combined with MFT Sketch #526. It was a one layer ink blending with GKD Coral Reef, Red Hot, Red Velvet, and Dark Chocolate from top to bottom. I decided to add a couple of hearts since Valentine’s is just around the corner.

I really liked this monochromatic look, and I think I will be making more with different colors. I might need to buy some more silhouette stamps from Gina K Designs, even though I told myself to stop buying any craft related things until the end of the year. I’m glad her new release was sold out, so I didn’t have to test my will power. 😂 On a side note, this reminded me of San Francisco’s red sky.

I hope you enjoyed the card as well. Thank you for stopping by and have a great weekend full of crafting!

Color Hue #10: Navy + Cream

I made a one layer CAS card for the Color Hue’s #10 Challenge, Navy and Cream. I felt like I should’ve added something in the square, so I decided to add some splatter. I think I accidentally added too many splatters around the bird. What do you think?

This was before the splatter.

I love you tons

I’ve been taking a break from card making to watch Hikaru No Go, but luckily I was able to finish this card in time for My Favorite Thing’s Sketch Challenge. I was so excited to get to play with my new background that I received from Unity Stamp Co, especially since Valentine’s Day is coming up.

I used Picket Fence Studios Slim Line Die Cutting System to die cut two white cardstock. On one white cardstock, I stamped Unity Stamp Co Criss Cross Hearts with Gina K Designs Red Hot Ink, and the second one, I used Whimsy Stamps Slimline Card Builder Die to die cut 3 ovals. Next, I stamped and water colored some elephants and a rainbow from the Clearly Besotted Playful Pair Stamp Set. Lastly, I assembled everything over a red card stock base.

Forever Beautiful

Simple cards using some new stamps from Unity Stamp Co. For the first card, I used Gingko Greetings by Sandhya Iyer. I heat embossed the stamp with Altenew Copper Embossing Powder, and diecut the patterned paper with My Favorite Things Wonky Stitch Rectangles. I filled in the gingko with some red watercolor to cover up the background. I diecut the Hello sentiment from Cricut and assembled the card together.

For my second card, I used You are forever beautiful by Angie Blom.

A Dandy Birthday

When I saw this sketch from My Favorite Things, I knew I wanted to combine it with the Color Hue Red and Grey Challenge.

I started with coloring the Clearly Besotted Hot Stuff Stamp Set with Spreey Watercolor Brush Pens, and then fussy cutting them out. I added some red and white dots on the dragon to give them some more dimension. Next I inked some Gina K Designs Red Hot on to some white cardstock and cut them into 4 pieces. I stamped some dandelion and the sentiment from the Hero Arts Make a Wish Stamp Set into the small squares.

Since it’s a birthday card, I decided to add some stenciled sprinkles sprinkling down in the background. I used Gina K Design’s Soft Stone to ink the sprinkles in. Once all the pieces of the card were done, I assembled them together.

Color Hues #9 – Red + Grey

I decided to make a simple Valentine’s card with a Red and Grey color combo, since I have this adorable Gnome from Unity Stamp Co. I’ve actually never liked gnomes until this year when I saw a lot of adorable gnome cards. I always thought they were creepy, especially the gnome statues that you put in the garden.

Hello!

I just wanted to try to ink blend on 110 lb cardstock to see if it would blend better, so I decided to just blend with my ocean colors. I used Gina K Designs Sea Glass, Turquoise Sea, Tranquil Teal, and Blue Denim to blend from top to bottom. I still feel like the blending isn’t as smooth as I want, so maybe I need to try Gina K’s paper.

Just us Girls is back with Work Week “HELLO” , so I decided to combine my background card with a dolphin from Clearly Besotted Make a Splash Stamp Set. I wanted the dolphin to “pop” out from the card, so it would be like it’s popping out to say hello. Before I attached the dolphin with a foam square, I used Pickett Fence Studio Current of Fish Stencil to add some fish in the background. I felt the dolphin was too lonely, so had to add some friends in the back. Lastly, I heat embossed a hello sentiment from Craftin Desert Divas Balloon Parade Stamp Set. I heat embossed the hello because I wanted it to stand out a bit more compared to the black fishes.

Fish are Friends

My first card for the new year!! I’m excited to see what the new year will bring.

I created this card for MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #522, and this Friends Forever stamp set from Clearly Besotted is just adorable and perfect for what I wanted to create. It totally reminds me of Finding Nemo; hence, the inspiration for the title Fish are Friends…Not Food.

I started stamping the shark and fish, the shell, and the seaweed to the card base. I masked the images, and started ink blending. I used Gina K Designs Sea Glass, Tranquil Tea, and Blue Denim for the ocean and Sandy Beach for the Sand. I splashed some water onto the blended ink to add some bubbles. I removed the masked images and colored them with Artist’s Loft Watercolor Dual Tips Markers. I stamped some bubbles and added some Ranger Glossy Accents to make it pop up a little and make it more bubble-like. The sea shell, seaweed, and bubble were all from the Tentacuddles Stamp Set from Simon Says Stamp. I used Picket Fence Studio Current of Fish Stencil to stamp in some fish shadows, and added some dots on the sand it make it less flat. Lastly, I used my Cricut to cut a scalloped heart to put around the shark and fish.
