Do you have a birthday?

Do you have a birthday?

Here is the card for you.  The March Stamp of the Month (SOM) is a great set for any of us to have because we all have people around us with birthdays.  Using the Stargazer paper pack is great for making a card that is more masculine or for a boy.

Use your journaling pen to doodle around the outside of the card and the sentiment tag.  The Shin Touch Golden Yellow Marker is used to color in the “Happy”.  Remember to use the Memento Ink Pad to stamp anything you plan to color with alcohol markers so you’ll have less bleeding of the black ink into your coloring.

White twine and the Stargazer dots add finishing touches to the card.  Create  your dovetail by following this diagram.  I can’t get things quite right on the diagram.

The Brew Crew

The Brew Crew

Wow…Here are some fun cards with a Design Space file for a coffee shaped card that I made over 2 years ago and used many times over.  I’ve included the DS file for you.  There were several different Pins and posts from the Coffee Lovers’ Blog Hop that inspired this creative set of cards.  All the papers used are from CTMH.  The stamps are retired CTMH stamps, with the exception of the “Haunted Cup” card which features “Cats and Bats Cardmaking Stamp set and dies.” The sentiment about “Pumpkin Spice” is from Sugar Pea Designs.

SG (my daughter) gave names to each of the Brew Crew cards.  I had wanted all the cards to be “brew” cards but she felt strongly that the Cat card needed to be “Cat Coffee” , not “Cat’s Brew”.

Merry Christmas Oh Deer

Tis the season for Christmas cards!

This card is made from a sample from the 50 Card swap. We used it for our Holiday Come and Play Card Buffet!  I used the Z4015 Woodland Wishes Thin Cut bundle to create this card.  I love the clean cuts you get when cutting images out with the thin cuts.

img_5642-wm

There are a few layers in here to create dimension the card without creating the need for extra postage or hand postage.    The base is done with some natural cardstock that CTMH used to sell that I found in my stash.  I’m in a use my stash mode.

img_5641-wm

 

Cut a Colonial panel out so it’s nested or framed by the natural cardstock.  Tear the bottom Colonial so it looks like it’s snow.  Stamp the images you need to stamp and cut those out with the thin cuts.  Create the layers by laying the thin cut tree so it slightly overlaps the stamped tree.  Have the deer have one set of feet slightly under the torn cardstock and slightly over the top of it.

Stamp “Merry” on the bottom of left side.   Using 3D tape, pop up the tag title.  Thanks for swinging by to my corner of the internet. Stop by for more art through out the month.

Dreamy Backgrounds

Another one of my loves is watercolor backgrounds because watercolors make such dreamy backgrounds!

S1506 Ice Cream Dream Card 3 Linda Creates~ Linda Caler www.lindacreates.com

To create this background, I used a technique featured in the Annual Inspiration on page 55 “A Blot of Ink”.

a bit of blot, watercolor backgrounds, linda creates ~ linda caler. www.lindacreates.com

 

I used a Z1938 sponge dauber (3 to be accurate) to put Lagoon, Smoothy, and Pear inks on the Y1012 4″x5″ block.  With a Z1380 Spray Pen filled with water, I spritzed the block.  More water makes it more diluted for color and you get a better spread of color.

S1506 Ice Cream Dream Card 3 Linda Creates~ Linda Caler www.lindacreates.com

You’ll get a different background every time you use this technique – part of why I love doing it.  After I make the background, I put out what I need for the card.

S1506 Ice Cream Dream Card 3 Linda Creates~ Linda Caler www.lindacreates.com

Because I did not want to draw attention away from the background, I did not color in the sentiment.

S1506 Ice Cream Dream Card 3 Linda Creates~ Linda Caler www.lindacreates.com

Colored in the ice cream treats with ShinHan Touch Markers.  Added Wink of Stella to add some shimmer.  A few little gems added to the sentiment, I was happy with the card.
