Another card inspired by Online Card Classes! This time I tried the technique from Kristina Werner to create a 3D embossing effect. I didn't have any clear background stamps so I used a rubber stamp from Hero Arts. I was thinking that it wouldn't be so bad if it was completely offset with this one and I used sparkling embossing powder so that the effect wouldn't be too dramatic if it would be. I couldn't see what I stamped because it isn't clear but it worked out pretty well. I stamped it almost directly on top of my first stamped layer (the blue one), if I wanted it too be this close to each other it probably wouldn't have happened haha.
I used some sparkling clear embossing from Wow and I can tell you that it's waaaay more pretty in real life than in the pictures. It's so beautiful :). It looks a bit hard in the pictures but when you see the card in real life it has a lovely shine, not just silver dots ;). I think you can see the effect best in the last picture.
I used some butterflies from white cardstock and vellum that I cut out earlier with my Silhouette for a mixed media project. I made just a whole A4 sheet full with butterflies and I love to use them on my cards every now and then :). I added some rhinestones to cover the glue beneath the vellum and to add a little bit more sparkle.
You can create it - january
Another type of challenge today :). This month I entered the 'You can create it' challenge from Caro en Inge. You get a little package of supplies for the month and you won't know what you'll get. So it was a big surprise when my package arrived. This month I received a white card, red cardstock, doublesided patterned paper, pushpins (forgot to use them on these cards...), red ribbon and a doily. I never used doilies so I had to find some inspiration on Pinterest. But there's a lot you can do with them. I made two cards with the supplies I got (and a little video for them. Narrated in Dutch but it's quite simple when you see it I think).
Let's start with the first card. I used the white card as a base and adhered parts of the two papers. I used one half of the doily and the red ribbon. I added the butterfly and sequins. More details on the process of the card can be found in the video.
For the second card I used the scrap materials I had left over from the package. This time I used a card of my own as a base. And I added the butterfly, buttons, sequins and this time the ribbons is from me too. And of course I stamped the message. For this card I have another video to share :).
Another quick share of a card with you today. As you know I'm trying some new techniques from Online Card Classes and this is another one. I tried to let my (white) background stamp show through my other stamping. It's pretty hard to see in the picture but it created a soft patterned effect. I tried to make a couple of pictures for you to make it visible.
Another card with a new technique from Online Card Classes (clean and simple 4)! It was a good practice for my gradients ;). I used a scalloped border die from Pretty Pink Posh and stamps from Avery Elle. I smudged a little bit of ink on my paper so I neede some sequins to cover that. They're good for everything haha. And in this nautical design they look a bit like bubbles, I think. I kept the colors simple but I love how it turned out.
Birthday wishes and heat embossing
My last card for the Winnie and Walter challenges this month. This one is inspired by the sketch from Joni. I heat embossed the circle with leaves from the 'a tree for all seasons' stamp set from winnie and walter. I colored it with distress inks and cut it out. I also heat embossed a little rose on patterned paper to add onto the card. I used a little bit of wink of stella on the rose to make it sparkle a bit more. The sentiment I added is from 'a tree for all seasons' too. To finish it I added a couple of sequins from Neat and Tangled.
I made a little tutorial video for this card:
