A couple of cards

Good morning ladies, hope you will all have a great Sunday!

Just to remind you that I have a giveaway in my blog, for a $25 gift certificate to SimonSaysStamps e-shop. So go ahead and read more info here.

Today I am sharing a couple of cards. The first one is a card I made for Friday’s challenge at Lily Pad Cards. The challenge is to make a card inspired by just about anything you’ve seen on the blog the last month! Easy!!! I so adore this challenge. Just find a card you like and CASE it!

So in case you haven’t seen it this is my card inspired by the talented Tina.

The background is a piece of white cardstock where I heat embossed the stamp with white  and then used my distress inks to color it. You can see me do this technique in another card in this video. I then done the same in another piece of white cardstock for the butterfly. After coloring the butterfly I cut it out and used 3d foam adhesive for more dimension. Check at the very bottom of the post for a supply list.

The next card is for this digi challenge. I have designed a digital kit named “Film set” that you can all download freely and use with your digital cutters OR print and cut out with your scissors. This set includes the very much wanted polaroid and film strip!!!

Here is  the film set I designed:

Here is the card I made using the film strip from the above set and a printable set by Hero Arts:

For this card I used my digital cutter to cut out the film strip and then I created the background scene in a piece of white paper. I used distress ink for the sky, super quick coloring with copics for cloths and bird house. Let me know if you have any questions about this card and if would like a video featuring this die cut 🙂

      Lol, you are so funny! Once a month I post my digis on Sundays, so there is no video that day. This happens the last Sunday of each month.

    Βίκυ, θα ήθελα να σε παρακαλέσω αν μπορείς να μου εξηγήσεις στην πρώτη κάρτα σου, πώς έκανες το μεμονομένο embossing..? το αποτέλεσμα είναι απίθανο και θα ήθελα να το δοκιμάσω! εχω την συγκεκριμένη σφραγίδα αλλα δεν μπορώ να φανταστώ πώς βγήκε το σχέδιο με αυτόν τον τρόπο!
    Σε ευχαριστώ εκ των προτέρων,
    Μαρία.

      Γειά σου Μαρία, αυτό που έκανα ήταν να βάλω Versamark Ink μόνο σε ορισμένες περιοχές στην σφραγίδας. Μπορείς να βάλεις σε όλη αν θέλεις και μετά με ένα μωρομάντιλο να καθαρίσεις κάποιες περιοχές… ελπίζω να κατάλαβα τι εννοείς και να βοήθησα… αν όχι ξαναστείλε μου! Φιλιά και σε ευχαριστώ για τα καλά σου λόγια και τα σχόλια που μου γράφεις!!!
