Yellow spring birthday card

Hello and welcome,

Hope you all stay safe and healthy in these “crazy” and unusual times.

Today I will show a birthday card for a women who turns 50 in May. I have made the card with Tim Holtz products.

I started with the background. Cut a piece of Watercolor cardstock. Inked it with my ink tool with Scattered straw and Fossilized amber Distress Oxides. Then I sprayed it with Rusty hinge and Fossilized amber Distress Oxide sprays. Then I splattered Walnut Stain Distress Oxide spray with the splatter brush. I inked the edges with Walnut stain Distress ink, and used my sewing machine and made some stitching. I stamped one of the Faded type stamps (CMS397) with Walnut stain Distress Oxide ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I also used a stamp from CMS225 Corresondence with Walnut stain Distress Oxide. I mounted that background on a sanded green Kraft cardstock. Then on a sanded Metallic gold panel, with Walnut stain inked edges. All mounted with 3D adhesive to get some dimension.

The next panel is also made from Watercolor cardstock and first I used the THMS091 stencil with resist spray in two of the corners. Then I used the same stencil with Texture paste opaque crackle in the other two corners. Then I sprayed the whole panel with Fossilized amber Distress Oxide spray, and then inked the edges with Gathered twigs Distress Oxide ink and a little Walnut stain Distress ink. I then stamped another stamp from CMS397 Faded types with Sepia Archival ink. I also mounted this panel on a green sanded panel of Kraft cardstock. I put a long fastener in the upper left corner on this panel. And behind the panel I used the new Idea-ology Type clips. “N” is for the first letter in this cards receivers name, and “50” is for how many years she turns.

Next step are the decorations. I diecut the Sizzix Destination die, 664179, from Metallic kraftstock, sanded and then colored with Distress crayon in Black soot and Walnut stain in random areas. 

I diecut a flower from Wildflower stems #2, 664164, from Watercolor cardstock and colored it with Tim’s waterbrush and Distress inks. The white dots in the middle of the flower is made with a white Posca pen. I put a twine around the stem and used my sewing machine to attach the flower to the card. 

Then I die cut a Trinket frame, 664186, from chipboard, spread some Texture crackle paste on random areas of the frame, let dry. The spray the frame with Walnut stain Distress Oxide spray. Then ink the edges with Walnut stain Distress ink. 

Time for the Idea-ology paper doll; which I colored with waterbrush and Distress crayons, the same with the little dog. I put a pair of Transparent wings behind the girl as well. And a Tiny clip on the frame. These clips are so cool! 

At the bottom of the card I placed a Star border, cut from Metallic craftstock gold and colored with Walnut stain Distress crayon to get this aged look that I wanted. The crayons are so versatile! On that border I placed a Small talk sticker, mounted on a piece of green sanded Kraft cardstock.

Thank you for following me through this blog post. 

I will try this card in the following challenges; 

I wish you all a continued Happy easter 🐣,

Bunny hop spring card

Hello and welcome,

Today I will show a card I made with Tim Holtz products. I will give this card to a women on her birthday.
With spring and easter approaching I thought it would be suitable to use a rabbit from the Sizzix Bunny hop die, 664421 and flowers from Funky florals #3, 662702, and Wildflower Stems. #2, 664164.

For the background I used the Flourish 3D embossingfolder, and inked the folder with Distress Oxide ink Stormy sky and then run through my Big shot with Watercolor cardstock. Then I sprayed the background with some water and dried it with my heat tool. Inked the edges with Walnut stain Distress ink.

The flowers and stems are diecut from Watercolor cardstock and colored with Distress inks with Tim’s water brush. 

The rabbit is also cut from Watercolor cardstock and then I used gritpaste on it. Then I sprayed it with Black soot Distress Oxide spray. I like the achived texture. Then I took a white string and colored with Mustard seed Distress ink, and tied around his neck. I used a white Posca pen as highlight on some of the flowers.
In the corner I also used a Number stamp from CMS225 Stampers anonymous Correspondence.

The Quote chip is sanded and inked on the edges with Distress ink in Seedles preserves. 

I mounted some of the flowers on 3D adhesive to get some dimension. I mounted the background on a sanded gold metallic Kraftstock, then a panel of Distress ink colored (Seedles preserves) Watercolor cardstock and finally on the back a piece of cardboard.

I will try this card in Simoonsaysstamp mondaychallenge , Spring mood board.

Thank you very much for visiting and take care in these crazy times, 

/ Susanne.
