Get Well Soon Card

Hi everyone!  Today I would like to share a card I made for my colleague who just had an operation. I selected an image of a bear giving a flower from Docrafts Forever Friends stamp.

Docrafts Forever Friends Black & Gold Characters

  • Docrafts Forever Friends Black & Gold Characters clear stamp
  • Spellbinders Nestabilities Lacey Circles dies – Used the second largest size
  • Magnolia DooHickey Club Volume 4 “Le Jardin”
  • Magnolia DooHickey Edwin Lace die
  • Die-Versions “Little Lizzie” die font
  • Bo Bunny patterned paper
  • Embellishments – Paper flowers, button, Liquid Pearls “Daffodil”, and string

I wanted to do no-line coloring for this card so I stamped the image with Memento “Summer Sky” ink and colored with distress ink. I also used distress ink “Old Paper” and “Antique Linen” on the edges of pattern paper

Here is the close-up.

I entered this card to these challenges:

Thanks for stopping by. I hope to see you again soon.

Welcome To My Blog – Birthday Celebration Shaker Card

Hi everyone! Welcome to my first blog ever. I’ve been doing scrapbook and cardmaking projects as a hobby for a few years. I really enjoyed reading many blogs to learn new techniques and get new inspiration for my own projects. So I decided to create this blog to document and share my cardmaking, scrapbooking, and other papercraft projects. I think this will be totally new experience for me and I hope everyone enjoys my blog.

Today I would like to start my first post with a birthday card I made for my dear friend. I’m practicing distress ink coloring technique. So I selected Magnolia Celebration Tilda stamp from Sweet Crazy Love 2012 Collection for this project. I think Celebration Tilda is perfect for shaker card and it looks like Tilda is wearing pajamas. So I created night scene and stars to match this stamp.

  • Magnolia “Celebration Tilda” stamp
  • Tiddly Inks “Cat Fever” clear stamp
  • Lawn Fawn “Puffy Star Stackables” Dies – Used biggest size for shaker window
  • Die-Versions “Little Lizzie” die font – Die cut on pattern stamped pink cardstock to make a sentiment
  • Memory Box “Banner Parade” – Used stars for decoration
  • Stars Punch – Punched on gold metallic paper for shaker
  • My Favorite Things “Stargaze” stencils – Used with “Tumbled Glass” distress ink for background
  • Ranger Stickles “Star Dust”

All stamped images were colored with distress ink. The night sky scene was also created with distress ink “Tumbled Glass”, “Salty Ocean”, and “Black Soot”.

Here it is when shaking…
