Up today, I’ve got an anniversary card to share. Recently hubby and I celebrated our 4 year wedding anniversary so I needed to make a card to give to him. I already had a different card for him to give to me.
Hey everyone! I am back again & this time, with a project to share 🙂 If you missed the new weekly giveaway, please be sure to check that out (click here!).
Today, I am playing along with the MarkerPop Coloring Challenge #9, which is to do some paper piecing along with your shading. I hope you will play along with us this week!
I chose to paper piece this lovely bride stamp from the I DO stamp set by The Greeting Farm. The design team also showed off some creative uses for Washi Tape. I chose to make some cute borders on my card using the Washi Tape.
Sometimes, especially if I am in a creative rut, I find it really helpful to play along with challenges because it really helps give me a starting point. From there, it is much easier to design your own cards. Do you use challenges as a starting off point for your creations?
ENABLER ALERT: This stamp set is currently marked down to $10!! It comes with TWO cute greeting farm people so that makes them $5 each, plus it comes with two sentiments. *sigh* Such a good deal! They are wedding people, but I am already trying to think of other uses –the formal little guy could be used for regular old guy cards, she could be used for a prom or quinceanera themed card. You could even cut off her veil and she could just be dressed up with a tiara on.
Here is a closer look at my coloring. I forgot to go back and make the catch-lights in the eyes white, oopsie!! I will have to do that before I send out this card.
The veil and the dress were paper pieced with patterned papers from the My Mind’s Eye The Sweetest Thing paper pad called “Honey”. I also used a patterned paper from this paper pad on the card.
I did some shading on the veil and dress using Copics: W00, W0, and W1.
To color in the rest of the image, I used the following Copic colors:
Skin: E00, E21
Leaves: G43, G46
Hair: E25, E27, E29
Flowers & Tiara: RV25
I cut out a label shape from white cardstock using the Nestabilities Labels Nine die template from Spellbinders.
I added some washi tape to the background patterned paper & then slapped on a sentiment (also from the I DO stamp set). The card base is white cardstock.
This finished card measures 5X5inches.
Here is another look at the finished card:
Well that’s it for today! Be sure to leave me a comment while you are here for a chance at this week’s giveaway. Also, don’t forget to check out the Daily Deal (links below). I have another doctor’s appointment tomorrow, but I am going to try to post another speed coloring video I made a while ago. We shall see! Hope you have a wonderful day!!
Hello everyone! Happy February!! Today it is my day on the Crafter’s Companion Blog, and I am bringing you a new Stamp It project that would be perfect for a Valentine’s Day gift. I used this gorgeous Rose Clock stamp from the Stamp It line from Crafter’s Companion.
I was drawn to this image for its soft vintage style. I love anything with flowers, and these roses are absolutely gorgeous. I love how realistic they look. Since the image has a vintage feel to it, I decided to go with rich browns & distressed edges for my project.
For my project, I colored my image, and then distressed the white paper with some distressing ink.
I matted the stamped image onto some brown damask patterned paper. My card base is some dark chocolate cardstock, then attached some scripty patterned paper to it after I tied a bow using some satin ribbon.
