Challenge #80 on Carte maniak'

Can this really be a card that I made. It is subtle and I don't usually do subtle.

However, I rather like it so I'm sticking with it for the challenge on Carte Maniak'. It's a French language site, but card sketches are pretty universal.
J'espers que j'aurais de la bonne chance.

I have a camera

I still haven't found my camera charger, but thank goodness for my daughter who has lent me her old camera. The photos are so much better than scanning.
So to work. Here is my effort for today.


If you want to make this card or something similar you will need:
1 A6 base card in off white
Sentiment stamp ( I used the one above that comes from I Brake for Stamps)
1 piece of pink light weight card
1 sheet of patterned paper
A green flower
3D foam pads
Glue
1 brad
To make this card:
This card is fairly self explanatory. It is simply a matter of layering up and sticking down

Daisy Silhouette

I've just had another set of beautiful Silhouette stamps in and I've decided to use them with a twist. Instead of a silhouette, I've used the Art and Graphic pens to colour the stamp and then print it out. So now we have colour rather than just silhouette. A little ribbon and buttons are all that are needed to complete the look.


What you need to use:

Flowers and Leaves stamps sheet from 'I Brake for Stamps'

Yellow gingham ribbon, 9mm wide.

Art and Graphic pens from Zig, Kuretake in colours, dark olive (57), yellow (1), and fawn (49).
Yellow buttons

Green paper

White base card and card to stamp out the image.

What you will need to do:

  1. Stick a piece of green paper to the base card, leaving a small border of white showing.

  2. Tie a knot in the ribbon and stick it to the green paper by tucking it behind the paper and sticking it to the back. Trim the edges.

  3. Colour up the stamp as seen and stamp it onto a piece of white card. Trim and mount with green paper.

  4. Stick to the base card as seen.

  5. Add the buttons and stamp on a sentiment and your card si finished.

Happy crafting.

Like lots of little girls my grand daughter likes handbags so this stamp is perfect for her as is the pink colour that I used to make most of the card.



To make this card you will need:
The Kids sheet of unmounted stamps from The Merry Stamper
9mm Swiss dot ribbon in hot pink
Pink blooms
TuT pens from Kuretake to colour the image
Crayon Kid Alphabet Rubber Stamps
Pink buttons
White and pink card

Most of the working for this card is fairly self evident. The printing of the word 'Julia' needs a little explanation.

Stick the letters to the mounting block, remembering to put them on in reverse order, otherwise the word will be the wrong way around when you print it. I didn't put the letters in a straight line as I believe that the harder you try to get perfection the harder it is to attain it.
Colour each letter with the TuT pens and vary the pinks to get a more interesting word. Print randomly over the base of the card as seen.

I think that the title of this post sounds rather like a nursery rhyme and that has made me feel far more cheerful. God knows I need cheering up with this miserable weather. I'll stop going on about it and get down to crafting now, I promise. Today's entry is another of my calligraphy pen flower cards and I've also used the dottariffics to make the border at the bottom.



What I did and used.
1. First fold a sheet of A4 card in half to make an A5 size card.
2. Then put green dots where you want the flowers to be placed and load the light pink calligraphy pen with a little of the medium pink and get to work on those flowers. It really is easy. All you need to do is small fan shapes around the dot that you placed on the card. Sometimes I made them bigger, sometimes smaller. On others I held the dark tint to the outside. It's up to you. There are no hard and fast rules.
3. Now draw in the stems in and add a few buds.
4. To make the border across the bottom of the card cut a strip of pink card with a scollop scissors of a template. Cue a strip of white card slightly thinner so that when the white is placed on top of the pink, the pink can be seen.
5. Use the thick end of the Dottariffics in pale green to draw lines on the white strip.
6. Tie a knot in some pink ribbon and tape in place behind the strip of border card, Now stick the border card to the base card.
7. Stamp out a sentiment and stick it to the base card with 3d foam pads.
use 3d foam pads to add the dragonfly.
8. Draw a dotty border around the edge of the card and hey presto your card is finished.

Some of you may have seen me use this stamp before and it is a very pretty stamp I know so I decided that it was just the thing to use for this CPS #99 sketch today. I've also entered it for the Arty Glitz, Button It Challenge. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.



If you want to make this card then you can get this super value stamp from the Postcards and Stamps sheet. You get all of these images for just £10. It can't be better.


While I'm on the subject, here are a few more cards that you can make with this set of stamps.
