Team Tuesday with Kia



Hello to all. Kia here with you today to share this card I did for Team Tuesday called Love is in the Air. I love birds and have a Cockatiel named CC. They are quite the characters which I tried to incorporate into this card. 

I used my Mini Misti for this project, first stamping the images using Ranger Archival Ink in Jet Black. In the video I have done for this you will see that I stamped several of the leaves, moving my paper, not the stamps. I do this as I watercolour them differently and this way I can pick the best for my card. 
To paint the leaves and the birds I used Zig Clean Color Brushes. 

For the background, I did what is known as the smooshing technique using Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Lemonade, Picked Raspberry and Ripe Persimmon, spritzed with water. I did 3 layers of colour, drying with my heat gun in between each layer, then die cut using the wonky rectangles die. Once finished I flicked on acrylic paint in yellow to the panel. I did a mini smooshing to the stacked hearts using Lemonade spritzed with water and dragging the die through the wet ink.

The panel is attached to the card base using foam tape. I glued on the stacked hearts, then styled and attached the birds and leaves adding in the flowers as if they were sequins.

Here is a close-up to show more of the details.

It was once I was done all of this that I remembered I did not stamp my sentiment. Misti to the rescue ... I put the card back in my Misti and did several passes with the ink, which is the Ripe Persimmon. As I am stamping on a hallow, the top of the t and h  from "the" did not stamp well, so I touched that part up with my ripe persimmon distress marker. 

This video shows my process, I hope you enjoy it, and thank you for visiting My Sweet Petunia and Team Tuesday.

Altenew Arabesque Medallion


The winter in the Midwest started off pretty meek.  Our first snowfall was on Christmas morning.   Since then it has been cold.  Cold weather makes me stay indoors.   Especially, since I work from home there is no need to get out of my warm jammies. 


I seem to get more crafting done during this time of the year.  Maybe since I had a great time on the last set of cards, I decided to just jump in and stamp without a plan.


I picked out a colors searching for winter color combinations.  Once I picked out my colors.  I stamped Altenew Arabesque Medallion onto a half sheet of Gina K white layering cardstock.  Once I stamped all my images, I played around with how to showcase the medallion.


This card was made with the cut offs from the first card pictured above.  I just fussy cut around the medallion.  I used the Congratulations die from Simon Says Stamp.


I cut this medallion in half and was able to make two cards with one medallion.  For the second one I had to fussy cut around the medallion and then mounted it with foam.


This card only uses one medallion.  I used Lawn Fawn Stitched rectangle frames to add some interest.  The sentiment comes from Gina K Peony Wishes.


This last card was with just scraps.  I used my favorite Thanks die from Honey Bee.  For all my cards I only embellished with Glossy Accents.  In all, I ended up with 21 cards.

If you want to see the last 3 cards be sure to watch the video.

Thanks for stopping by.

Team Tuesday with Ilina

Hi everyone.
Ilina here today. And welcome to another Team Tuesday. Unfortunately today I don't have a video for you (it's little crazy in our house: colds, stomach bugs and Creativation prep, besides my full time job). But I have an extra fun card for you and a tip how you can use only 3 ink pads for 5 layer layering stamps. 
For my card I used the Impression Obsession Macaron stamp set and stamped each Macaron using the following sets of 3 colors (inks by Impression Obsession)
Banana, Canary and Goldenrod;
Bubblegum, Peony and Ruby;
Seafoam, Aqua and Teal.

What I did was: I stamped the 1 layer with the lightest color, next for the 2nd layer I used the same color but stamped it twice thanks to my MISTI, this way I was able to achieve a shade darker color, then went with the middle color, then the darkest and for the 5th and final layer I stamped with the darkest color twice using my MISTI. And I was so happy how my macarons turned out. 
Next, I cut them out. 
I stamped the sentiment in versamark and embossed with Gold Embossing powder, then I adhered the macarons, added the gold thread and adhered to pink card base. I added washi tape and sequins to finish off the card. 





Hope you are inspired to create something fun today. And I promise next time I will have a video for you :)

Simple Colored Pencil Cards


Just before Christmas, I was out shopping.   I was at my favorite store, Maurice's, and I came across the cutest top.  It was hot pink with white flowers.  The first thing I thought was that I can make a card with that design.  

I thought I would pull out all my Altenew flower stamp sets and have a go at making something.  Without a plan, just stamped away.  It was so refreshing to just play and not worry about wasting cardstock.   I didn't worry about the rules to colored pencils. 

I stamped the card pictured above with the Best Mom stamp and used a sentiment from Label Love.   I only used two Prismacolor pencils.  Once I was done coloring it in, I overstamped it with Versafine Onyx Black ink.  Then I added some Pretty Pink Posh Confetti Sequins.


For this card I used the Wild Hibiscus stamp set.  I used masking paper to make the center flower appear that it was in the forefront.  I used a Hello Gorgeous die from Honey Bee.  Then I used Sherbert Shimmer for the center of the flowers.


The  card  pictured below uses the Botanical Gardens stamp set with Simon Says Stamp Painted Thanks die.  I used Little Things from Lucy pearls to embellish.


I really loved this card and I wanted to make multiples.  So when I went back to make extra, I messed up the placement and ended up with this version.  The Happy die is from Mama Elephant and the word birthday is from Honey Bee Happiness stamp set.  I used Papertrey Ink Rainstones. 


For my final card I used Concord & 9th Hello Lovely stamp set.  This time i used clear embossing powder.


I did go through an entire white pencil making and playing with this.  I only show one card in the video from beginning to end since the technique is the same for all.  I do have to admit that photographing the cards was a bit difficult.   It took several tries to capture the true color of the cardstock. 

Be sure to watch the video until the end to see the blouse that inspired me.  Thanks for stopping by.
