Stencilled Background Thanks Card

Hi, everyone!Hope all is well with you all and many thanks for visiting my page.
I Know Christmas is close, just a few weeks left, but before sharing my cards made for the occasion, I’d like to share some projects from a while ago. Had no time to share them before and I am certain if I don’t do this now, I won’t do it later for sure.

img9171So, today, I’ve got a thank you card with a stencilled background. It is a pretty simple card and I really love how it turned out.
First, I die-cut the word ‘thanks‘ using a Paper Smooches die out of a piece of white card.
Then, I added the colours to the die-cut using some sponge daubers and distress inks. I used a mix of candied apple, abandoned coral, carved pumpkin and fossilized amber.
The following step was to create the background. I used a Tim Holtz stencil called Doily, a piece of cream card and distress inks (the same as those used for the ‘thanks’ die-cut word and a few more: evergreen bough and scattered straw).
As you can see, the background is not completely filled in. I left the bottom part clear so I could add the die-cut word.
To add dimension and interest, I added some clear Wink of Stella onto ‘thanks’ and some twine in red and gold which I tied in a bow at the top right corner of the card.
The card was part of a set created for a dear friend and it has a matching envelope (you can find it here).

Many thanks for stopping by and wishing you all the best,

Thanks – Autumn Colours

Hello, everyone! Thanks for joining me today for an autumn coloured thank you card.
I made this for a dear friend, who asked me to create her some cards, and this is one of the three I made.
I’ve got ‘a few’ new distress inks to play with and I thought it was a great idea to create this autumn coloured themed card with. These are candied apple, carved pumpkin, scattered straw and fossilized amber.
As this was an autumn card, I used some leaves stamps from Santoro’s Gorjuss stamp set ‘The Fox’. For those who know me, they can tell I do love all things Gorjuss. So, I gave the small stamps a bit of love and autumn colours. As I wanted to created lovely real colours I mixed the ink directly onto the stamps and then pressed onto a top folded cream card base front. I planned to join the monthly challenge on the Seven Hills Crafts blog page as I used their September challenge template suggestion. Had no time to join then, so here it is, two months later.










The ‘thanks’ script is from Paper Smooches and I die cut it out of cream card and then applied the same distress inks used for leaves. I adhered it using glossy accents under the first row of autumn leaves.

Under the second row of leaves I wrapped around some red twine and just a bit of yellow one tied in a bow to add dimension. For more interest and sparkle, I added some sequins in matching colours.

Thanks for stopping by. Looking forward to be back soon,

Hristos a Înviat!

Hristos a Înviat! Sper că v-ați bucurat de un Paște fericit, plin de lumină și binecuvântare alături de cei dragi. Anul acesta am creat mai puțin decât mi-am propus însă am reușit să dau culoare unor ștampile digitale folosind pe o planșă acuarele si tușuri pe bază de apă, iar pe alta am colorat folosind Promarkers, niște markere pe bază de pigment.
Ștampilele digitale sunt de la GerdaSteinerDesigns, una dintre creatoarele mele preferate de ștampile. Acuarelele folosite sunt minunate și vin de la Staedtler, un alt brand favorit. Iar, tușurile pe bază de apă sunt #distressinks de la Ranger. Pentru toate acestea am folosit cu drag pensulele mele cele noi, pensule cu rezervor de apă de la Kuretake ZIG.
