Blast Birthday Mixed Media Card

Hello hello hello… Thank Goodness It Is Friday! I hope you all are doing well… Today, I would love to share this blast birthday mixed media card.

I am playing with color blending, embossing and paint splatters.

I had fun creating the background usingVersaFine Clair Ink Pads: Blue Belle, Purple Delight, Tulip Red, Summertime, Green Oasis, and Nocturne. I picked the ink up with make up sponge, and started sponging it on a Neenah solar white cardstock. I blended the colors as I go.

I dried the galaxy background with craft heater when I was done adding those inks. Since these are super juicy pigment inks, I dried it longer to make sure no more wet ink for the next step.

I treated the background panel with anti-static powder tool for heat embossing. I stamped the stars and dots images randomly on the galaxy background panel from Out Of This World stamp set (Joy Clair) with VersaMagic Cloud White using MISTI. I stamped them couple times to get bolder look. And while the ink still wet, I sprinkled them with Mboss Embossing Powder Sparkle, and then heat it up with craft heater.

After that, I added more whita splatters on the galaxy background panel using white acrylic paint, little bit of water and fan brush. I set the background panel aside to dry.

Next step, I stamp the rocket ship, astronout, and sentiment using MISTI with VersaFine Clair Nocturne on a piece of Neenah solar white cardstock. I dried them with craft heater.

On the craft mat, I dabbed some of the the Memento DewDrop Cantaloup, Bahama Blue, Lady Bug and London Fog. Using wet small round brush, I colored the images. YUP! I did watercoloring with Memento DewDrop. It was fun!!!

After watercoloring, I dried them all and then I fussy cut the rocketship and astronout with scissors.

I trimmed the finished galaxy background panel into 4″ x 5.25″ and I added it on an 4.25″ x 5.5″ white card using TapeRunner adhesive. Next, I trimmed the sentiment into a rectangle and added it on the card with 3D foam. Then, I added the rest images with 3D foam, too.

I did have much fun creating this blast birthday mixed media card. I hope this bring a smile on your face, too.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you all stay safe and healthy!

Clear Scraps | Peace Mixed Media Shaker Card

Hello everyone… I hope you all are doing well this season… It is still Summer here and I am dreaming of peaceful beach these days.

I grew up in a tropical country and my hometown is surrounded by ocean. We literally can just go to the beach by the side of the road. I miss my hometown a lot. It is inspired me to make this peace mixed media shaker card.

I am sharing this mixed media shaker card at Clear Scraps Blog, too.

I painted the beach shoreline with watercolor paint on a 140 lbs watercolor paper for the background. For me, painting is relaxing. I dried the finished painting with craft heater for faster drying process but you can let it air-dry.

I used the 3 x 12 Peace be still Stencil for the sentiment. I taped the stencil on top of the watercolor paper with some low-tack ThermOWeb purple tape, and then I used sponge dauber to add the Imagine Crafts White pigment ink on it. After that, carefully I peeled off the tape and dried the pigment ink with craft heater.

I added the finished background on the 5×7 card base with TapeRunner adhesive.

I painted the Mini Shaker Flip Flops with acrylic paints and small round detail brush. I used teal and white paints.

After the paints dried, I stacked them together with strong permanent adhesive glue and I put a heavy book on top until the glue dried.

After the glued dried, I added some of the giant irridescent sequins in the middle of the flip flop. I removed the clear film plastics from the acetate (all Clear Scrapes acetate plastic have protected clear films on both sides) and then I added the acetate plastic on top of the flip flop with strong adhesive glue. Then I added the last piece of the flip flop and the metal flowers on the flip flop with strong adhesive glue, and carefully I put the heavy book on top of it until the glue dried well.

I added the finished shaker flip flop on the card with the TapeRunner adhesive.

I hope this card cheers you all up today! Thank you so much for stopping by.

Dare 2B Artzy | Fun Fold Bloom Birthday Card

Hello hello hello crafty friends! I am back again today with a Fun Fold Bloom Birthday Card.

I am sharing a full details about this fun fold card at Dare 2B Artzy Blog today.

For the base card, I cut out a piece of 80 lbs Neenah Solar White cardstock using the Fun Card Fold Die. I also cut out one of the All A Bloom Paper from the All the Buzz Collection Variety Pack using the same die for the background pattern. If you like, you can grab just the All A Bloom Paper Pack, too.

I cut out the stripe pattern from the left over patterned paper using the Rectangle Fancy Framelit Dies for the fun fold middle card background.

For the sentiment label, I cut out another piece of the Neenah Solar White cardstock using the smaller size of the Rectangle Fancy Framelit Dies and I stamped the birthday sentiment from the Sunshine and Rainbows Stamp Set with VersaFine Onyx Black ink pad using my Mini MISTI. I added it on the card with 3D foam tape for extra dimension to it

A stamping tip: I used purple tape to cover the other words before adding the ink, and I cleaned the stamp after every time I stamped it. This way you can stretch your stamps.

I cut out the flowers and leaves from the rest of the bloom paper using the Spring is Blooming Die. I love how we can use the left over paper and not wasting the awkward shape!!! I added the flowers and leaves around the sentiment label with permanent liquid glue.

I love how this card can be mail flat and fit inside a regular A2 envelope. For me, floral card is not only for Spring, it can be for any occasion. What do you think?

Before you go… Check out our monthly challenge. This month theme is Anything Goes.

I hope you all find a spark of inspiration today. Thank you so much for stopping by!

Hello My Friend | Dare 2B Artzy August Challenge

Hello hello hello my friends!!! It has been a while since the last time I wrote blog post. Lots of things had happened in the last 6 weeks of my life.

I had a surgery on my left arm and still in recovery… It has been a long and hard recovery journey for me but I am thankful for helps I got. I am still in therapy but hopeful.

So… today, I would like to share and excited news too! I am a new team member for the the Dare 2B Artzy!!! To kick off my term with them, I made my first card for the Dare 2B Artzy Challenge. And for August Challenge, the theme is Anything Goes.

I love the new All The Buzz Collection papers. On my card today, I used the All The Bloom pattern from this collection or you also can buy it in a pack of 15 papers here.

I cut out the base with Silhouette Cameo and then I added the paper on my slimline card with permanent adhesive runner. I cut out a thin strip of the stripe pattern and added it also on the card with the same adhesive.

I cut out a piece of white cardstock using Oval Scalloped Framelit Dies. And then using MISTI, I stamped on it the word “Hello” from Spring is Blooming Stamp Set using Memento DewDrop Pear Tart and then I stamped the word “my friend” from Get Well Stamp Set using Memento DewDrop Nautical Blue.

I wrapped the burlap ribbon twine around the card, right on top of the paper strip, the tie up a know. I added the sentiment label on the card with 3D foam tape. After that, I tied up the ribbon twine into a bow and secure it on the card with a dot of liquid glue.

I embellished the card with some sequins just for a little bit extra bling on it.

I hope this card cheers you up today. And I hope you all can play along with the D2BA August Challenge.

How Ya Bean? Let’s Venti

Hello everyone! It is Thursday… I got lost in time, I almost forgot what day it is and bit late with my post. So let’s take a little break with me…which I need it right now!

Today, I would like to share this CAS bubble tea card that I created for the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Thursday Coffee Break post.

For the background, I printed one of the pretty Sweet Love Digital Paper from Graciellie Design on a white cardstock, and then I cut it out with one of the Fancy Frame Dies from Craftin Desert Diva (closed now). I added it on a white card using Scrapbook Adhesives E-Z Runner Grand and 3D white foam dots.

Next, I used the Oh Frappe Stamp Set from Essentials by Ellen Clear Stamps. It is an oldest stamp set and die set from Ellen Hutson.

I stamped the cups and the bubble with VersaFine Onyx Black and Mini MISTI on a heavyweight white cardstock. I colored the cups with Koi Watercolors and waterbrush.

I stamped the sentiment using Catherine Pooler Icing On The Cake Ink Pad on a white cardstock with Mini MISTI, then I trimmed it into sentiment label. I added it the card with 3D white foam dots.

I hope you all have wonderful caffeinated day! Thanks for stopping by today.
