Hipster Ostrich card

Hello and welcome,

Today I will share a card I made with Tim Holtz Hipster stampset, CMS288.

I started with the background and used Distress Oxide in Gathered twigs. Then I used my mini shifter stecil diamonds with Distress ink in Rusty hinge and Gathered twigs. I spritzed the background with water after using the shifter stancil so the pattern will be a little blurry. Then I took Black soot Distress ink through my Eyechart stencil THS010, and after that I stamped through the stencil with an alphabet stamp from CMS090 Going somewhere and Jet black Archival ink. Then I stitched the edges with my sewing machine and inked the edges with Distress ink in Walnut stain.

 I made a frame from watercolor cardstock and Rectangle stitched dies, used Distress inks in Gathered twigs, Walnut stain and Broken china to color the frame. 

I colored the ostrich with Distress inks. And I also colored a flower from Ideaology bouquet with Distress inks and put it in her hat. I used Glossy accents on her glasses to get the look of glass.

I diecut three glasses from Sizzix Tim Holtz dies 660953 Crazy things from Craft- and Coredinations cardstock. I cut out circles from OH-film as glass and glued them in to the glasses. (It,s all in the details ;) ).

"See you" are cut from my Traveler words die from Sizzix TH, 661803, from Coredinations cardstock. I sanded the glasses and the letters. I used a "No 247" story stick and a long fastener on the frame. I used Distress crayon in Mermaid lagoon and Picket fence in the "No 247" so it should be more visible.

I colored a wordband in the same way as the storystick and mounted on the frame with some hempstring. Above that in the left corner i put a piece of Ideaology filmstrip and a sanded milkcap. The milkcap has inked edges with Walnut stain Distress ink. 

I mounted my card on a black base and a panel of sanded Coredinations cardstock. I used 3D adhesive between the layers. I also used 3D adhesive behind the ostrich head.

I will try this card in the following challenges:

Valentine card


Welcome to my blog!

Today I will show a Valentine card I have made for my beloved husband.

I started with the background using Distress Oxide in Gathered twigs on Distress mixed media heavystock, and then stamped it with the text stamp from CMS328 Entomology set with Archival ink in Sepia.
Then I diecut the hearts with a movers & shapers die and then used the same "treatment" as the background on the hearts. Then adhered the hearts to the background with Distress Collage medium. After that I colored the hearts with Distress crayons in Festive berries and Gathered twigs. I used Grit paste and Distress crayons round the edges to get some texture and a distressed look.

I diecut the "love-sign" from Woodgrain cardstock with Sizzix Tim Holtz Planks die. I inked it with Distress Oxide Gathered twigs and Distress ink in Walnut stain. For the word I used my Sizzix Tim Holtz Deco die. I cut the letters first from chipboard and then from Kraft cardstock which I sanded, then glued them together, for dimension. I used ideaology mini fasteners and hempstring for the hanging.

I used a Ideaology Hitch fastener to hang the sign on.

The sign in the upper left corner is a Ideaology Wood slice which I distressed the edges on with Distress ink in Walnut stain and mounted a story stick on. I used Distress crayon in Festive berries on the story stick to get the word more visible.

In the lower left corner I used some Ideaology pieces, such as Mummy cloth colored with Distress stain in Festive berries and Frayed burlap, a piece of Ruler ribbon inked with Walnut stain, Ruler piece distressed with Walnut stain ink and finally another Hitch fastener.

In the lower right corner I used one of the new dimensional domes, placed a photo of my husband in it and also put in some small hearts from Kraft cardstock diecut from a Tim Holtz die called Shape strips. (It was difficult to take a good photograph from this because of the reflections)

I hope my husband will appreciate this card.

I will try this card in the following challenges:
