For You Shaker Card (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)


Hi everyone! :o)

It's been quiet for a while here on my blog. I had some extra school activities and classes last two weeks, field trip class... I focused on my work and planing school activities and put crafting and blogging aside for a bit. I also start to work in my balcony garden. :o)


Yesterday was my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I made this For You Shaker Card:o)


For my card I used stamps from two BEAUTIFUL Jane's Doodles stamp sets: Life is Good and Doodle Flowers.

 


How I made my card...

I stamped a jar on a rainbow patterned paper and cut it out with scissors (I left a lid uncut). I traced the edges and colored the lid with a black marker. Then I glued acetate sheet on the panel to close a window.

I stamped another jar on a top folded card base, glued 3-D foam on the panel, filled the jar with sequins and glued the rainbow panel on the card base.

Then I stamped another lid on a pink patterned paper, cut it out, glued 3-D foam on the lid and glued it over the black one.

To make card sturdier, I glued a white cardstock paper panel inside the card.

I struggled with a sentiment and had no idea where to put it. Without the sentiment, there was just something missing and didn't like it. Finally I decided to stamp the sentiment directly on the acetate sheet. I fixed some lines with a black fine liner and my card was finished. :o)


Card dimensions: 95 mm x 127 mm (3 3/4" x 5")

Across the Universe Card II (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)


Hello everyone! :o)

My second post today. If you missed the first one, just scroll down or follow a direct link here. :o)


Today is my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I'm sharing this Across the Universe Card II:o)


To create this card I was inspired by a song 'Across the Universe' by The Beatles, comic books and a card I created in January: Across the Universe Card. :o)

For my card I used stamps from two BEAUTIFUL Jane's Doodles stamp sets: To The Moon and Unicorn.

 


How I made my card...

I stamped the scene on a watercolor paper panel and colored everything in watercolor technique using Distress Inks.

I colored the scene during the 9th 30 Day Coloring Challenge by Kathy Racoosin of The Daily Marker. I shared progress of coloring on my Instagram account as well as in my preview post (here), but didn't share finished card until today. :o)





After coloring and drying, I masked images and splattered the panel with a white acrylic paint mixed with water. I left the panel dry on air. 

I glued the panel on a white side folded card base and my card was finished. :o)

After the Rain Card II (Fairy Tale Challenge #191)


Hello everyone! :o)


It's time for a new challenge over at Fairy Tale Challenge Blog.

Our theme for this fortnight is #191, Aprilwetter / April Weather, raining cats and dogs.


And here is my take on the challenge: After the Rain Card II.


To make my card I used super cute LMM's Forgotten Scraps 'Polka Dot Pals Rayne' digital stamp.

I printed the image on a watercolor paper and left it dry for a day. I colored the image in watercolor technique using Distress Inks.

I partly colored the image during the 9th 30 Day Coloring Challenge by Kathy Racoosin of The Daily Marker.




As I wasn't sure what I want to do with the image, I left the image until inspiration arrives (I was totally in Rainbow colors for a while :o) ).

Couple days ago, I pulled the image out, as it's totally fitting to our challenge, and finished coloring. I decided to go with similar design as on a card I made last year (here), using same image, quotation and font.

I already had a card layout on my computer from my last year's card, I just moved quotation on the bottom of the card. When I liked a new layout, I printed it out on a white cardsotck paper base.

Then I fussy the watercolored image, traced edges with a black marker, glued the image on the card over the uncolored image and my card was finished. :o)

Card dimensions: 89 mm x 120 mm (3 1/2" x 4 3/4")

List of supplies:
  • LMM's Forgotten Scraps 'Polka Dot Pals Rayne' digital stamp
  • 1942 Report Font (Important: Read licences before downloading.)
  • white cardstock paper
  • watercolor paper
  • Tim's Holtz Distress Inks:
    • Mustard Seed
    • Spiced Marmalade
    • Tea Dye
    • Vintage Photo
    • Walnut Stain
    • Hickory Smoke
    • Black Soot
  • Stabilo Fibre Tip Pen (Marker), Black 68/46
  • UHU liquid glue
  • Fiskars High Precision Personal Paper Trimmer
  • bone folder
  • printer
  • Marabu fine rounded paint brush no. #0
  • scissors
  • water
  • paper towels
