Love Is In The Air | XOXO Faux Wood Heart Card

Hello hello hello… Today, I am here with Love themed project. It is not too early for that, right?

On my card today, I use the newly released mega digital stamp set, Love Is In The Air, from Graciellie Design.

I used my Silhouette Studio program to open and edit the digital stamps and created cutting line. I printed the heart with InkJet printer and then cut it with my Silhouette Cameo 3.

I colored the wood heart shape with colored pencils and embellished it with some flowers and branch that I cut out using the Divinity Designs dies.

I also use the Sweet Love Digi Papers, Heart Cards SVG Cut Files, and Coffee Lovers SVG Cut Files. I also use Silhouette Studio to edit the svg files and cut them with Silhouette Cameo 3.

I added some white splatters on the card with white acrylic paint, water and flat brush. And added some sequins on the card for a little bit extra bling.

I hope love will fill your heart today. Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Stencil Challenge | Sending Warm Thoughts

HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL!!! May this year brings you love, hope, peace and good health. May The LORD bless you and keep you in His mighty hands all through the year of 2020.

I have a warm thoughts card to share with you all on the first day of New Year as my first project.

I am inspired the Winter season and colors for this CAS card and using the Make Marks 1 ARTplorations StencilSnowy Cozy Stamp Set, and Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies.

For the background, I used the gelli printing technique with stencil, acrylic paints and white cardstock. After the paints dried, I cut it with one of the stitch rectangle nesting dies.

I stamped the mug from the stamp set on a piece of Rinea foil paper with their Ghost Ink. After about 1 minute, I wiped off the ink with Hand Wipes. And then I fussy cut it with scissors.

For the sentiment, I stamped it on a white cardstock with VersaFine Clair ink and then trimmed it into label.

I embellished the card with some snowflake sequins and silver thread.

You all are invited to come and join us for STAMPlorations first Stencil Challenge of the year.

Thank you for stopping by. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Watercolored Christmas Card | Peace and Joy

Hello hello hello… I don’t know about you, but we counting down to Christmas here in our house. The little ones are getting SUPER EXCITED and don’t stop singing all kind of Christmas songs. It is such a joyful season for sure!

My Christmas card today is a watercolored Christmas card using this beautiful Poinsettia Greetings Stamp Set from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps. I love the big poinsettia flower from this stamp set and also all the sentiments.

I stamp the poinsettia flower image on a 140 lbs watercolor paper with Golden Glitz Delicata Ink Pad and MISTI. This ink is soft and give extra metallic gold look. I dried this pigment ink with craft heater.

I colored the flower with Sakura Koi Watercolor and waterbrush. It turned out to be a little bit like no-line coloring which I did not expect that… But I like it. I dried the whole image again with craft heater.

After watercoloring, I added extra splatters on it with Finetec Gold Palette Watercolor and waterbrush. I used the gold and silver. I dried it again with craft heater.

I stamped the sentiment on a black cardstock with the Golden Glitz Delicata ink pad and added some clear embossing powder on it while the ink still wet. I heat set it with craft heater and then trimmed it into sentiment strip.

I trimmed the watercolored poinsettia panel to 4.25″ x 5.5″ and added it directly on top of a white card with EZ Grand Adhesive Runner and then I added the sentiment with 3D foam tape. And, I embellished this card with the red ribbon bow on top of the card.

I hope you all will have peace and joy in your hearts and home for knowing the real reason of this holidays. God is here with us! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today. Have a blessed season!

Stencil Challenge | Christmas Cheer

December is here!!! I hope the joy of the holly jolly Holidays start filling your hearts and homes.

STAMPlorations has new challenges at their blog starts on every 1st of the month. One of the challenges is the Stencil Challenge. You are invited to create and link up your Anything Goes project as long as you use any stencils on your project. Head over to their blog to see more inspirations from the team today.

I made a mixed media, CAS Christmas card for this challenge. On my card I used the Make Marks 5 ARTplorations Stencil, Christmas Reindeer ARTplorations Stencil, and Yuletide Deer Stamp Set.

I use my gelli plate and acrylic paints (white and read) to create that patterened background. After the acrylic paint dried, I added the raindeer stencil on top of the panel, secured it tapes and I added the gold metallic glitter texture paste on it. I removed it right away and run the stencil under a warm water to clean it.

After the texture paste dried, I trimmed it slightly smaller than the A2 card and I added that background mat on a red card with E-Z Runner Gran.

I stamped the sentiment phrase on a white cardstock with Tulip Red VersaFine Clair ink pad and Mini MISTI. I stamped it twice to get darker red color. I trimmed the sentiment into a banner and I added on the card with 3D foam tape for extra dimension.

I hope this card give you an idea to create and play along with the December Stencil Challenge. When you create your project using any STAMPlorations stencils, stamps, and/or dies, you can also link it up at the Never Ending Anything Goes Challenge.
