writing notes

  • Stampin up!- writing notes & colour me happy stamp sets
  • Lawn fawn 'blue jay'& 'lobster' ink pads
  • Memento ‘tuxedo black’ ink pad
  • Copics- R32. RV42. BG13,32. BG0000.01.02. B00. Y02,15,18. E23. C0.
  • Sakura glaze pen #849
  • Wink of Stella ‘clear’ glitter brush pen
I first cut a piece of card to cover the front of my card blank. I stamped this with the writing notes background stamp, using two colours to give the full note paper look. To do this, I carefully just inked up the lines I wanted red, stamped then cleaned my stamp and repeated with the blue. I used the Misti to help make sure it all lined up. If you didn’t have a Misti, it would be easier to just carefully apply both colours of ink to your stamp then stamp all at once.
I then stamped my bird image and sentiment in position on the card and coloured these using copics. I added glitter to the ‘thank’ and glaze pen to the ‘you’ and the birds eye. I think this just adds a bit of detail to a simple card.

  • Memento ‘tuxedo black’ ink pad

  • Tim holtz ‘broken China & ‘ distress ink pad
  • White card blank
I stamped, coloured and die cut my garden girl image. I diecut the grass to create a mask. I used the first half to mask the sky and inked the green. Then used the other half to mask the green and ink the sky. I did this very basic just to add some colour, but you could make additional masks to create more dimension (maybe add clouds for example). I stamped my sentiment in the corner of the inked background and added my image using foam pads to match the sketch.

To make this card I firstly created my background. I cut a piece of white cardstock and used distress oxide ink to make an ombré effect. I used a embossing folder to add texture and pattern. I glued this onto a kraft card blank.
I Used a piece of Neenah card to stamp and colour my image. I then die cut this, I also die cut a piece of kraft cardstock and layered this at an angle to match the sketch. I glued both pieces onto the card blank to finish.
