PE: Headliner at The Paper Players!!

Hello! I am submitting another card for the Chasing Mojo with Sweet Kobylkin challenge.

b3eb4-chasing2bmojo2binsta

This time, I am CASEing the amazing lady herself – Ksenija aka Sweet Kobylkin (finally, yay! πŸ˜‰ ). Here’s her card to CASE

Here’s how Kseija has made her beautiful card -masking, ink blending and then taking off the mask to stamp. I didn’t realize how sweet this technique is until I made a card with the same!

Wishing You..

I just switched the colors and the layout..and such a splendid effect!! Of course, I do have a little goof-up! 😦 See the bottom right edge? See how it is no bright white?? That’s because, when I first made the card, I hadn’t blended the ink over the entire card, it was only on the right half. But once done, I decided to add the color over the entire card, and since I had already colored the right, I didn’t mask it…and then when I came back to darken it up a little…sigh… I guess it could have been worse…and yes, I was too lazy to start over! πŸ˜‰ Well, I will definitely be making more with this technique, so.. yes, I think I’ll get over this little mistake in no time! πŸ˜›

Wishing You..

#579 – Chasing Mojo with Hello

Hello! Today I am presenting another card for the Chasing Mojo with Sweet Kobylkin challenge.

b3eb4-chasing2bmojo2binsta

The card tis time is inspired by this card by Anna Ignatenko … such a cute and adorableΒ  card!! Here’s what I made –

Hello

One of the simplest card I made.. and it came together very quickly too! I did use my MISTI to stamp the pretty (mostly covered) background – since the image is very fine, and I wanted to stamp multiple times using different colors. Other than that.. straight forward stamping, coloring and die cutting. I love it when cards are created like that! πŸ˜‰

Supplies used –
Happy Little Stampers Whimsical Friends
Inkadinkado Batik Cartouches

#578 – Chasing Mojo with Thanks

Hello! I am back with another card I made inspired by the entries for CASEing in the Chasing Mojo with Sweet Kobylkin challenge.

b3eb4-chasing2bmojo2binsta

This time, I am CASEing the wonderfully talented Melissa. I absolutely love her mixed media cards (& projects) and her love (craze??) for butterflies, even though I don’t use them as much as she does! πŸ˜‰

Here’s the card she has shared for us to CASE –

slide002

And here’s my inspired card –

Thanks

I did the stamping using die cut foams, and used blues, as in my inspiration. Once I was done with the stamping, I added lots of water splotches, the water flowed a bit to spread a bit of the color. Once dry, I added a few splatters of yellow, die cut the panel, die cut the sentiment, sponged some more blue ink at the bottom and through the sentiment, and finally adhered it on a white card base.

Thanks

Supplies used:
Spellbinders Feathers dies
My Favorite Things Pinking Edge Rectangle die
Paper Trey Ink Wet Paint die
Distress inks in Broken China, Peacock Feathers and Mermaid Lagoon
Camel Drawing ink in Lemon

#577 – Chasing Mojo with Sweet Kobylkin

Hello!

I am playing with the very talented Ksenija at her challenge to get back the mojo for the new year – Chasing Mojo with Sweet Kobylkin.

b3eb4-chasing2bmojo2binsta

I had given a card to case just a couple of days ago –

You're Amazing{original post}

And I made this card as the CASE of my own card –

Thanks

I made the card with a few common things being – solid leaf stamps, distress inks in mostly green and a little blue, black splatters, the watercolored background and colors and the sentiment at the bottom – and a few different things – I stamped the inks with a bit of inking+misting first, then stamped them once they had dried, using a shade darker ink, stamped it directly (no misting). And of course, the white sentiment is a die cut instead of black stamping.

Thanks

This card does look a bit more haphazard than the previous one (at least I think so) but I love that look – a sort of ‘random’ look – I usually find that difficult to achieve, so I am happy about that! πŸ™‚

Here’s the supply list:
Altenew Lacy Scrolls
Lawn Fawn Quinn’s ABCs
Distress inks in greens and blues.

#576 – Seize The Birthday – Dashes or Doodle

Hello! Its time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday! And this time the Topping is Dashes or Doodle. Of course, you are also free to choose to go without the topping, as long as you make a birthday themed card.

Seize The Birthday - The Toppings

Seize The Birthday - Anything Goes

Rejoining us is our Surprise Party Guest, Rahmat!

I, of course, have used the topping to make my card!

Happy Birthday

I chose Inkadinkado Thoughts for the Day stamp set to make the background. These flowers look very hand drawn and doodle-y πŸ˜› I just stamped the flowers using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored it using Zig brush markers. Once done, I trimmed the panel a bit, and added texture using Lawn Fawn Stitched Borders dies. So, there’s a bit of dashes too! πŸ˜‰

Happy Birthday

The sentiment comes from Reverse Confetti Happy Pretty Panel die plus the Whole Lotta Happy stamp set. I punched a hole in it and used it as a tag here. I then foam mounted the whole thing on a white card base. A few pearls for embellishing finishes my card.

Submitting this card to the following challenges –

Stamplorations January Sketch Challenge (I’ve flipped it) –

Addicted to Stamps Challenge #225 (flowers are the inspiration) –

#575 – A Challenge to Get Your Mojo Back!

I just read this post by the very talented Ksenija (aka Sweet Kobylkin). This sweet lady just came up with a fantastic idea to help get the mojo back for the new year, for those who are having trouble finding it… any guesses why I am writing this post??? πŸ˜‰

What is this fantastic idea, you ask? Well the basic idea is CASE – CASEing your own card, other’s cards – I find it to be a very inspiring idea – and hopefully I’ll get my mojo back too! πŸ™‚ Here are the details, if you’d like to join too!

And here’s the card that I am sharing to CASE –

You're Amazing

Thank you for stopping by and hope you have a great crafting time!

#574 – Handmade Marble Paper

Hello! This time, I a pretty much CAS card. I guess the card itself looks pretty bland, but I am still pretty happy with it – since I made that wonderful marble background myself! Yup, I did!! πŸ˜€

Hello

I don’t have special papers for alcohol inks. Instead I used the paper that comes with stamp sets – so that’s another feather in the cap – recycled element! Of course, the paper is a bit shiny, not one that directly absorbs the ink, so I was able to work with it plenty well. πŸ™‚

Hello

My reference for this pretty technique are these videos (here and here) which were about nail decoration – yes nails! But since they used alcohol inks themselves, with such absolutely amazing effects, I was compelled to do the same – and thankfully, they turned out just right!

Supplies used:
Adirondack Eggplant alcohol ink and Blending solution
Winnie & Walter In a Word Hello Cutaway
My Favorite Things Hip Clips
