My cup of tea :)

Hi there!

Happy Monday and thanks for popping in to take a look at the card I have to share!

I'm joining the Fusion card challenge today where they have a beautiful picture to inspire us. I usually try to take on the challenge to combine the sketch and inspiration photo... it was a bit tricky for me this time, because of the layered nature of the sketch... so I looked at the sketch with CAS eyes 👀... and this is what happened in my craft room over the weekend :

I started by creating the polka dot pattern on the teacup ( I love tea ~ Uniko Studio )

Create a polka dot pattern with masking technique

To minimize the layers for a clean look, I masked the card front and stamped the background panel directly on the card base using Beautiful blooms set ~ Uniko Studio.

Inks used :

  • Versafine Onyx Black.
  • Altenew inks :  Parrot, Pink Diamond, Pinkalicious, Rubellite.

Teacup and flower were cut out using my Silhouette cameo and adhered to the card base with foam tape.

Have a great week!

Guest designing at AAA cards : Autumn colors !

Hi there!

I am so excited to join the AAA cards challenge today as guest designer after this card was picked as winner for the rainbow themed challenge!

The challenge for the next 2 weeks is : Autumn colors :)

I LOVE the shades of Autumn and had so much fun creating this card to invite you to play along !

I used :

Not much to explain, just some masking, and the rest of the 'work' was done by the beautiful effect of the layered stamps!

After stamping the top panel, I popped it up with fun foam on the stencil striped background.

I also want to share my card at :

Wishing you...

Hi there!

Second card for today ... after a bit of a quite week , but with so many inspiring challenges out there, who can resist 😄

I used :

  • Kid-blowing-bubbles ~ from APEX Cuttables cut with my Silhouette cameo .
  • Distress inks, Altenew Graffiti Scribble stencil & Altenew Snowing BG stamp for water colored background.
  • Sentiment from 'Wishing you' set also by Altenew.

* A little tip... remember to use just a little bit of water when working with stencils and watercolor!*

Once again I was blown away pun intended by the intricate cutting the Silhouette is able to do ! If you look closely you can even see the little girl's eye lashes! (3rd photo from the top).
