I am switching the gear from Christmas to Fall scene a little. Rich yellow and orange are my go to colors for fall. The distress oxide inks are too pale for the whole panel. I had to add some distress inks to make the color richer. Then I found they are easier to blend if distress oxide prepped the base. Score! Now blending shouldn’t be a big problem at all!
Fussy cut all images from Neat and Tangled My favorite nut Stamp set and colored with Copic markers
Ink blended with Tim Holtz distress oxide and inks on a watercolor paper
Created the windows using My favorite things Stitched Rectangle die, Large one for the base and small one for three windows
Added foam tape on the border of the frame to create window dimension so I could add Neat and Tangled Festive Fall Sequin Mix in them
Before assembled the windows, I stamped “You are my favorite” sentiment on the background
Assembled all images around the windows and adhered the panel onto a A2 card base.
Where to start…Umm…I wanted to create a fall scene with detailed background. So I pulled out all things that I could think to help me reaching my goal (craft dies, inkpads, sequins…and so on) There’s a song singing as “Can’t take my eyes off you…Can”t take my mind off you…” I was going like “Can’t take my hands off you…” Before I knew it, I added A LOT into this tiny A2 card. If I have more room on the panel, the badger and the mouse would be in there too. From now on I need to remind myself, sometimes less is more.
I have colored every single image from Mama ElephantA Beary Christmas Stamp set. I used some of them for a card a few days ago and left some. It would be nice to make a card out of what”s left. So here it is. I made a shaker card. Now I know how hard to take a photo of shaker card without glare from the acetate. Please check out other detail photos to see the true color.
Color all images with copic markers.
For the card base background, ink blended with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide in Picked raspberry. Assemble images to the background
Yesterday was World Card Making Day. I pulled out my craft stashes for yard sale and was hoping someone crafty would show up and appreciate them. And yes, a lady named Christina, who was looking at my stamps one by one until she stopped and asked me how much it is for all. And yes, she bought 100+ stamp sets from me!!! She also got most of my craft punches. What I was surprised is that her husband actually helped her test every single punch to see if they are sharp. What a supportive husband! I immediately looked at my husband and hoped he got some hints from me. I am so happy that my yard sale was successful. In the end I had some time to sit down making a card to celebrate this wonderful day.
I just received my goodie bag from Kathy Racoosin. Thanks for the opportunity of her generous Instagram giveaway. I really appreciated it! Kathy is a fantastic person. Whoever haven’t followed her, please go to her Instagram or Blog, because her talent will blow your mind!
I participated Kathy rac’s #thedailysmarker30day challenge. Surprisingly I did it everyday. I am so proud of myself for making it happen. Now I cannot wait to assemble them and make them into lots of fun cards!
