Hey everyone, happy Wednesday! It's Taheerah here today to share some cards featuring the March release!
The wicked postman held my release package captive earlier this month so I didn't get a chance to join in with the other talented DT ladies - but that just means I've got the limelight to share them with you now!
Let's start with the first card:
For this one I used one of the irregular circles from Scandinavian Prints to create an irregular polka dot background! I used Distress Inks and Distress Stain to give it a watercoloured, almost ombre look.
I combined it with the starburst from Scandinavian Prints and a sentiment from Better Together for a bold, fun hello!
I decided to watercolour *outside* of the image, using a mix of pale pink and gold. It's a fun change of pace to show that you don't always have to colour!
I stamped out just the banner again then trimmed out the banner pieces and adhered them on top for some dimension. I did the same to add that cute pink bow! I couldn't resist using another sentiment from Better Together too!
Last but not least, probably my favourite of the trio:
I customised my sentiment by adding the 'extra' - I think this card deserves to go to someone extraordinary!
I hope you loved these release projects as much as I loved creating them! The March release seems to have been uber-popular, with many of the new products out of stock currently - so make sure you sign up to notifications for your favourites to know when they're back in stock! Thanks for stopping by!
Daria here and I have for you a clean and simple card using one of my all time favorites stamps from Neat and Tangled. That is My Favorite stamp. Actually, it was the first one I bought, when only started my cardmaking adventure; and I am still in love with it :)
I am a big fan of white cards, and I wanted the sentiment to play the major role - so I've put it on some tags (using Classic Tag 1 Die) and embellished my card with a few gold and lavender stripes to make it more interesting and shiny :) I've also used an embossing folder with stripes to add a little something-something to my card base, without making it busy.
Love the soft and fresh feel of the card, I hope you do too *wink-wink*
Thanks so much for joining us today, and hope see you soon :)
Hey everyone, Mayuri here to share my cards for the March Release!
First up is a card using the new Scandinavian Prints set - I experimented with stamping the images using Dylusions Ink Sprays, and absolutely loved the result:
I began by spritzing a piece of watercolour paper with water and then carefully adding a couple of drops of Funky Fuchsia ink spray to my craft mat. I then tapped the largest solid stamp from the set into the ink and stamped onto the damp paper.
The ink plumed in some areas, whilst staying solid in others. I also did the same thing with one of the smaller circular images but this time with Pure Sunshine ink. I heat set the panel, and then stamped over the inky plumes with black ink and some of the outline images for a dramatic result! The sentiment was heat set in white on a strip of black cardstock and adhered to the front to finish off.
For my second card, I used the Hexastar Cover Plate to create a clean and simple, layered paper effect.
I die-cut the pattern out of three different coloured pieces of cardstock, and then trimmed each one apart at various points of the design. I then layered them on top of each other to create what looked like a mountain scene.
I applied Glossy Accents in small areas to adhere the pieces together, as well as to a white card base. I stamped a sentiment from Scandinavian Prints below the die-cut piece and added some sequins from the Gold Mix sequin collection.
For my last card, I used the Hexastar Cover Plate again, but this time as a stencil. I die-cut it out of some slightly thicker cardstock, and swiped through some Chartreuse Iridescent Creative Medium (Imagine Crafts) onto a dark navy panel and set aside to dry.
I stamped the image of the boy and teddy from Better Together with Archival Jet Black ink onto a piece of white cardstock and then coloured them in with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Pens. I fussy-cut them out and set aside to work on the sentiment.
I trimmed the stenciled panel down to slightly smalled than the card base and foam mounted to the front. The sentiment was stamped onto a piece of white cardstock, trimmed and also foam mounted. To finish, I adhered the focal image next to the sentiment!
I hope you enjoyed these projects! Thanks for stopping by ;-)
