Last night, I spent some time in craft studio making some shaped cards for a challenge over on Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps’ site. I’m always sneaking in at the last minute for her challenges!
I ended up making three different cards. They were ideas I had thought about for a little while and decided to finally give them a try.
First up was a cupcake card.
I used my Silhoutte Cameo to cut out the design. The upper part flips up to reveal another message. I used Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps Kick Assy Birthday stamp and my Memento Black Tuxedo Ink. I then heat embossed it using clear embossing powder to add some extra sparkle.
To add the look of frosting, I used Marvy’s Liquid Applique snow effects pen and heated it to get the dimensional look. I glued on sequins. On the red cherry top I added Liquid Glass and heated it slightly to get a frosted look.
My next card was a simple floral heart card.
I used my Silhoutte Cameo to cut out the shape from some Recollections rose and white coloured glitter paper.
The sentiment was stamped on vellum using Happy Thoughts from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps in Memento Black Tuxedo ink. I then used clear embossing powder and heat embossed it to add some additional sheen.
The final touch was tying a bow with white and silver twine and additing white sparkle embellishments from Your Next Stamp.
My third card was a little mermaid in a clam shell.
I used my Silhoutte Cameo to cut out the shell from American Craft Cardstock white paper and Recollections cream glitter cardstock. I edged the white cardstock with Ranger Distress Oxide Ink in Abandoned Coral. I also sponged the sentiment tag from Avery in Abandoned Coral. (Love that sentiment!)
I used a combination of Spectrum Noir and Copic markers to colour Sandy Seawater and her jellyfish friends.
- Hair: SN-GB1 TN1, TN2, GellyRoll#700
- Tail & Top: SN-BT2, BT4, BT5, GellyRoll #799
- Necklace: GellyRoll#744
- Eyes: SN-JG3, IG1, GellyRoll #744
- Skin: Copic E11, E00, E04, SN-FS6
- Jellyfish: SN-C01
I fussycut Sandy and her friends and foam mounted them the shell for added dimension.
And simple as that, three cards!
