Beautiful Ride



Today I am sharing a card using one of the lastest release stamp sets by Dare 2B Artzy, Bike Bouquet.
To make this card, I started with a white top folding A2 card base and a white A2 panel. I did a lot of masking for the background. I started by tearing masking paper and masking off the bottom portion so I could create the sunrays. I created the sunrays by using strips of masking paper and think ink blending a darker yellow in between them. I removed the masking paper and then went back over the rays with what ink was left on my brush for a lighter shade. I masked off the top portion and ink blended some green for the grass. 
I stamped the bicycle, colored it using OLO markers, added some white highlights using a white gel pen and then cut it out with the coordinating die. 
To finish the card, I added a sentiment with heat embossing so it would be bolder and popped the image with foam tape.

Happy Birthday Hero Arts

To make my card, I started with a white top folding A2 card base and a white A2 panel. I stamped the balloons on the panel and colored them OLO markers, they were super fun to color. After I finished all the balloons I colored the ticker tape using a gold metallic marker. 
I embossed the sentiments in gold and embossed the happy twice to fit the challenge.

Extraordinary Embossing Folders Day 1


I am up on the CutCardStock blog today sharing this card. I am also taking the Extraordinary Embossing Folders class at  Online Card Classes and this card is from Day 1 of the class.

To create this card, I started with a precut and scored A2 card base and a precut panel. I stamped the sentiment first so I could use it to help line up the folders. I used two different 3D embossing folders one from Simon Says Stamp and one from Spellbinders. I spritzed the card front panel with water which makes it have a better impression and not crack the paper. To finish the card, I ink blended some ink over the embossed areas.



There is also a sale on Stardream Metallic cardstock and let me tell ya, it's gorgeous papers.
