Nautical Birthday Card

Joy Clair Stamps

July… July is here! We are half way through 2018… Yes, time flies fast,  but we can make any single moment full of fun and memorable.

Today is the first of July, that means there is a new challenge at Joy Clair blog. And this is my card for July challenge that is inspired by these fun Summer/Nautical images from Joy Clair – July Challenge.

To create the background, I started with scrabbling some of the 2 shades of blue using the Leisure Arts Watercolor Pencils on a piece of watercolor paper. Then, I blended them using a waterbrush. I dried it with craft heater.

Next, I stamped the boat from Light House stamp set with VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink Pad. And then I colored it with white, red and blue Leisure Arts Premium Colored Pencils. I used the light blue colored pencil to add water shadow under the boat.

I stamped the sun from the Life’s Breeze stamp set with VersaFine Clair Cheerful Ink Pad. Then, I colored the sun with Leisure Arts Watercolor Pencils.

Next, I stamped the kites, bows, and strings from Life’s Breeze stamp set using VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink Pad, and I colored them with Leisure Arts Premium Colored Pencils.

I stamped some birds from Fly With Me stamp set using VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink Pad on the card to finish this scene background.

I cut the background panel using Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies and I added the panel on a white card using dries-clear adhesive glue.

I stamped the birthday sentiment from Life’s Breeze stamp set using VersaFine Clair Blue Belle Ink Pad on a white cardstock, then I trimmed it into a sentiment banner. I added it on the card with 3D foam tape.

Now… it is your turn to create anything goes project inspired by the image from Joy Clair – July Challenge. The more you link up, the more changes you can win.

A Nautical Masculine Card ~ You Are My Anchor

A Jillian Vance Design

Hello everyone… Today I have a nautical masculine card to share with you all. Summer is around and we love spending time at lakes and beaches. They inspire me to create this card.

I am sharing this project also over A Jillian Vance Design Blog today. I hope you all will visit me there.

First, I cut out a piece of blue cardstock with the Diagonal Stripes Cover Plate Die using my Gemini Jr. machine, then I added it on an A2 white card with dries-clear adhesive glue.

I stamped one of the sentiments from the You Are My Anchor Stamp Set with Rockin Red – CP Ink Pad on a white cardstock, trimmed it into a sentiment strip, and then I added on the card with dries-clear adhesive glue.

For the anchor, I cut out a piece of Silver metallic cardstock using the anchor die from the Anchors Aweigh Die Set. I love how the texture pop up. I added the anchor on the card with 3D foam tape.

I embellished the card with some of the Lemon Yellow Opaque Sequins.

I hope you all enjoy this card today. Thank you so much for stopping by today. Have a fabulous day!

Mixed Media Card ~ With Love Always

Graciellie Design

Hello everyone… Today I have a mixed media card with digital stamp set, acrylic paints, gesso, distress oxide ink, distress ink, and watercolor crayons.

I am using the new Together digital stamp set from Graciellie Design. I started with printed out the flower and sentiment set after I resized them.

I colored the flower with Stabilo Woody Watercolor Crayons and waterbrush. I picked up the colors directly from the crayon with the waterbrush. After that I added some glitter with Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Brush.

I dried the image with crafter heater. And then using my Gemini Junior machine, I cut it with ODBD Double Stitched Rectangles. I also cut out the sentiment with ODBD Double Stitched Pennant Flags Dies.

I added some gold splatter on the background by flicking the gold crayon pigment and waterbrush. I dried the panel with craft heater.

For the background panel, I started with added some acrylic paint with rubber brayer on a piece of watercolor paper. I used light blue, yellow, and orange paints from my stash. After the paints dried, I added some white gesso with finger to mute the colors. I dried it with craft heater.

Using the distress blending tool, I added some of the Distress Oxide Vintage Photo ink all over the panel, then I spray with some water. I let it sit for several second, and I dabbed it off with paper towel for extra texture. I cut out the panel to fit as the mat on a 5×7 card base. And after trimming it, I added some Distress Vintage Photo ink with blending tool around the edges of the panel for extra shadow.

I added the background panel and the flower panel on the card with Scrapbook Adhesive E-Z Runner Grand. And then I added the sentiment pennant flag on the card with 3D fun foam and dries-clear adhesive glue for extra dimension.

To embellished the card, I added some white pearl gems and some natural burlap twine.

I hope you all enjoy this post today. Have a wonderful day and thank you so much for stopping by!

Over Coffee Loving Cardmaking Blog today, I am sharing steps how I created this mixed media card using stamps, inks, and die sets from amazing Super Sponsor Companies for our coffee/tea/cocoa cardmaking community.

The stamp set I used is one of the new Graciellie Design rubber stamp sets that was just released at Unity Stamp Company. The stamp set name is Tea Cup Flower. This set is packed with gorgeous tea cup image and encouraging sentiments. For the background, I created it using Catherine Pooler Ink Pads: Aquatini, Fiesta Blue, Something Borrowed, and Flirty Fuchsia – that I got from A Jillian Vance Design store. I die cut the sentiment using one of the Pierced Rectangles Dies from Super Sponsor Our Daily Bread Designs. I added it on the card with 3D fun foam and dries-clear adhesive glue. I used Leisure Arts Watercolor Pencils, waterbrush, and Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Brush Pen as coloring medium.
