Spotted You First

Hi, guys! I have a really fun card to share with you today! I used the funniest little giraffe from Maple & Ink, I love his blank expression like he got caught eating those leaves when he shouldn’t have been or something like that.

I was inspired by the cue card LOUD at CASology and the current sketch at (CAS)E this Sketch.

Β 

To me, LOUD meant lots of bold colors! And the sketch was perfect for adding splatters and a focal image with a sentiment strip to ground it. Check it out-

I Copic colored the giraffe and ink blended the background. The same colors I ink blended with were used as spatter, too. I love the sorta 90s graphic look of this card. Reminds me of a jazzercise outfit for some reason…let me know what you think!

 

CAS Chef Card

Hello, everyone! I’m back to share a card for a couple of challenges- MFT’s Sketch Challenge and Color Throwdown’s Color Challenge.

I really loved the diagonal stripes from the sketch and thought that they would look really cool with some ink blending. So here’s what I came up with-

I started by white heat embossing the brick background from MFT and ink blending a couple diagonal stripes to mimic the sketch. I used Squeezed Lemonade and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks. I cut down the panel to fit behind a Single Stitched Rounded Rectangle Frame from MFT. A fun little green accented Chef, also from MFT, along with a coordinating heat embossed sentiment finished it off.

I am really happy to be back to making cards for fun and not just for design teams. This card was very fun to create! Thank you for stopping by and have a great day

UGG… Let’s GO Clubbing

Hey, guys! Sorry for the month long absence! I am much more active on Instagram, so if you don’t follow me over there, please do, I am much more active on IG. But anyways, here is a card I made for the current challenge of at Fusion!

I really loved the combination of the navy and white patterns paired withΒ the tan elements of the photo inspiration. I used those colors as the combo for this card and made sure to keep it clean and simple!

I started by free-handing some navy stripes on the left side of the card base. Then, using the Single Stitched Rounded Rectangle Frames from MFT, which are the coolest dies ever, I cut 4 pieces of kraft paper to layer up onto my card. Then I used the most hilariously punny stamp set from Maple & Ink, called UGG,Β to be the stars of the card. I stamped, colored with Copics, and fussy cut them out before popping them up in the frame. A caveman sentiment that I white heat embossed onto navy cardstock finished it off. On the inside I stamped a coordinating stamp set from the set- LET’S GO CLUBBING.

Thanks fro stopping by! Hope to be back soon!
