Woodblock Wednesday!

Hello everyone! I have been inspired so much by Amy Tsuruta’s Woodblock Series that I thought this time I would participate in her Woodblock Wednesday for December 7, 2022.

I made 2 cards! I chose to use this Christmas Tree Woodblock stamp that I believe is from Michaels. I love the look of colored pencils on colored cardstock. I stamped and heat embossed the tree stamp with Versamark ink and WOW Opaque Bright White Super Fine Embossing Powder. I did that 2 times. I chose to color my baubles in with shades of blue Prismacolor Colored Pencils. I also used white, and Silver Prismacolor Colored Pencils. I colored the tree white and the base Silver. I stamped and heat embossed the confetti from the “Cheers” Woodblock stamp as my snow with the same embossing powder and ink. It’s a little harder to see how your stamp might stamp using a woodblock and just a portion to not stamp the sentiment. I first colored the bottom of my panel with a white pencil for my ground and didn’t care for that too much. So I added chunky glitter, can’t go wrong with glitter right? My panel was cut down to 4 x 5.25 and glued to a Grey top folding A2 card base. I fussy cut my tree and glued it with foam tape before adhering it to my panel and then to a card base.. Lastly, I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment from woodblock collection from Michaels. I added my sentiment with foam tape and that was it for this card.

On this card, I did pretty much the same. The only difference is I added my tree to a white panel and stamped a different sentiment in black ink. I also glued some dots of glue using my liquid glue and dusted on some chunky glitter. My panel was added to a white top folding A2 card base keeping this card flat. I hope you enjoyed what I created with my Woodblocks. I had a blast and I Thank Amy for this fun series and linky.

Thank you for stopping by!

From Our House to Yours!

Hello everyone! I have a Christmas card today. Super Easy and no coloring. I used this fun and neutral stencil from A Colorful Life Designs called Square Fade.

I used this pretty blue textured cardstock from my stash and applied some Lunar Paste from Simon Hurley in Clear Skies. I love blue on blue. I let it dry and it dried quickly. I then cut my background with my Tim Holtz Deckle Trimmer. I love my panel irregular.

I then used some Chip Board Stickers from Simple Stories Winter Cottage. I love this Collection. I own the paper and Ephemera too. I picked some Cozy Houses to use for my Focal point. I glued them on with liquid glue and then placed a already pre-made sentiment strip. Lastly, I added some sequins to match and glued my panel to a A2 card base. I hope you like it.

A Rainbow is like..

Hello everyone! I hope you are doing great. I had to share with you this card using the Pebble Fans Stencil from A Colorful Life Designs since its in the Encore Bogo Sale(Buy One Get One Free) and today is the last day for the sale.

When I saw this stencil I thought Rainbows. This Sunshine and Rainbows Stamp set from Unity Stamps Company went perfectly don’t you think so too? I ink blended on white cardstock using ink cubes in Barn Door Distress ink, Spiced Marmalade Distress ink, Squeezed Lemonade Distress ink, Mowed Lawn Distress ink, and Salty Ocean Distress ink. This is another stencil I call neutral because you can use it for any Occasion. I used the Unity Stamps Company Sunshine and rainbows set to stamp similar patterns of the Rainbow in black ink to match my background. I don’t think it was intended like this to use but it lookes good with this stencil *wink.

I used a stitched A2 Rectangle die to cut out my background. I stamped a sentiment from the stamp set onto my background. I added my panel to a A2 card base. I added a gold chipboard foiled heart to my rainbow and white sequins. I hope you like my card and grab this stencil. If not shopping the sale use my code VonFan10 to save 10% off.

Multi Chevron-May Your Season Sparkle

Hello everyone! I have a card today using the Multi Chevron stencil that is in the Encore Sale Buy One Get One over at A Colorful Life Designs.

I love this stencil. Its what I call a Neutral Stencil. One that can be used with any project. I chose to make a Christmas Card. I grabbed some white cardstock and ink blended with Hero Arts Ink Cubes Rose Madder, Green Apple, and Cotton Candy.

When I was done ink blending I used a Jaded Blossom die set to cut it out. And if you have seen some of my videos you know I love Taylored Expressions Strips sentiments that I pre-made ahead of time. So much easier. So I picked up a sentiment to go with my card. I have a older Tonic Studios Card Kit that I had got from a Barnes and Noble Book Store and that tree was so pretty I stamped it as my focal point. in black ink on my background. I added my background to a A2 card base and added my sentiment with foam tape. Lastly, I added some green sequins. I hope you like my card and grab this stencil during the sale.

Hello everyone! I’m super excited for this months Sketch Challenge 29 hosted by BYSH Cardmakers Blog. You are going to love it. Just as I do! You have all month to play along!

Isn’t this sketch so much fun? I love it. I chose to use Lawn Fawn for my project. Fun Pattern paper from Lawn Fawn’s Knit Picky 6×6 paper pad and Ugly and Bright Stamp Set. I had stamped all my images out with black ink and colored them in when Lawn Fawn had a live class on their YouTube channel. I had cut them out with my Brother Scan N Cut.

To follow the sketch I used my paper trimmer as well as a ruler to cut my triangular pieces. You can use any shape or size for that circle portion. I used a scalloped Circle Stackable die to lay my cute critters in their fun sweaters on. Later, I drew a line to ground them. I glued all to a A2 card base. Lastly, I added some white gel accents with my Gelly Roll pen. I hope you will join this fun Holiday challenge. There is a prize. Just upload your photo to the FB group. Challenge will end on December 31, 2022 11:59 PST. Easy Peazy.

Happy Holidays!

Hello everyone, I managed to make another Coffee card for the Fall Winter Coffee Lover Blog Hop! I am having so much fun with the hop I hope you are too. I will have one more card posted before the hop ends.

I first downloaded and printed this cute stamp from Sweet N Sassy stamps called Gnomie Christmas Digital Stamp set. It’s a New one illustrated by Julee Tilman. I love his big cuppa and couldn’t resist these Gnomes..too cute. I colored them in with my Copic Markers and fussy cut the gnome and tag. I punched a hole through the tag and added some twine. I ink blended my tag with some green ink to match. I wanted a festive Holiday Coffee Card. It could be a Peppermint Mocha he has there, my favorite right now from Starbucks. Yummm.

I cut out some pattern paper to match the Gnome’s accessories. I then added that pattern paper to a A2 card base. I glued the tag onto my pattern paper with liquid glue and added my gnome with foam tape. Lastly, I added white gel accents and red liquid drops to my pattern paper. I hope you like it, it was so much fun.
