Naughty but Nice | Clearly Besotted

Hello everyone! I am really excited to show you the card for today. I used the 'good to be bad' stamp set from Clearly Besotted which is awesome!!! I think a little bit of dark humor  among all the fantastic happy cards is great too :) I also look forward to some Halloween cards although we do not celebrate it but I like the colors and possibilities when creating such card designs :)

So I started the card by masking off the moon using a normal circle diecut and blending different greens, yellow and black together. By the way - I was inspired by one of the Halloween cards during Lawnfawn inspiration week. When I saw the green background I immediately fell in love with it - so I had to use similar colors on this card (thanks for the inspiration!!!).
Then I masked off the sky and created the ground using brown and black distress colors.

I diecut a bunch of birch and other trees with the MFT dienamics from grey and black cardstock. The grey ones should be in the foreground - the black ones far in the distance. Then I stamped the images onto watercolor paper and colored them in with Zig clean color real brush markers - which was so much fun :)

I fuzzy cut them and heat embossed the sentiment included in the set with white embossing powder. Then I adhered all the images to my background - for the baddies I used foam squares. I also added a spider and a bat from different stamp sets (Lawn Fawn and Mama Elephant).

Last but not least I used glossy accents on the apple and the wand/globe (don't know what to call that :) ) and adhered the panel to a cardbase.

I am so in love with that color combo!!

Thank you for stopping by and I will see you soon.

Christmas Cards 2016 #4 | Avery Elle

Hello everyone! I've already bought some of the new Avery Elle Winter/Christmas products to go on with my Christmas cards. Well, today's card is the result of mixing Christmas products with hot summer temperatures ;-).

I created the snowy background by ink blending the distress inks scattered straw, mustard seed, dried marigold and spiced marmalade. Then I used the new 'snow falling' die to create the colorful background.

Next I stamped the images from 'elf-tacular' with archival jet black ink onto watercolor paper and colored in the elf and the gifts with Zig clean color real brush markers. The images are quite big, which I like because they fill in a card easily, but because of that I fuzzy cut them to avoid the white border.

I clued them to the background and added some shimmer with my Wink of stella clear brush pen. I used the sentiment included in the stamp set and a die from 'sew fancy' together with a piece of pattern paper. Last but not least I adhered the label with foam tape and the background to a standard-sized cardbase.

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Birthday ride | Mama Elephant

Hi there! I made this card for my brother's birthday. I needed a bike because he bought himself a new mountain bike and found that tandem from Mama Elephant - so I created a design where it looks like a bike :) I included mountains and some trees into the scene because he mostly rides through forests and mountains.

Whenever I use more layers I sketch them before starting with the card and create a full sheet of different distress colors - then I can sprinke it with water and  diecut the landscape layers all at once. It saves me a lot of time!!!

For the background I created soft clouds with tumbled glass distress ink and the 'landscape trio' dies from Mama Elephant.

Then I started layering the different landscape pieces.

When all of them were adhered to the background I stamped the images from 'tandem ride' and colored them in with Zig clean color real brush markers. Unfortunately I can't find the sheet where I wrote down the exact numbers of the markers I used. 

I also diecut the number 18 with 'number it' dies from watercolor paper and blended an orange and dark grey Zig marker to match the colors of the company where he bought the bike. (KTM is an Austrian brand which has orange and black as their main colors.)

After adhering everything to a craft cardbase the card was done :)

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!
