'DEER' THANKS CARD

 


Hello everyone! How are you all? I hope you are staying safe!

Today, I have a very cute watercolor card for you. Let's start..

CARD MAKING DETAILS

  • I started by loose watercoloring the smaller panel with Craftangles Liquid Water Colors
  • Once it's dry, I added splatters of the same colors and a hint of black
  • On the other hand I stamped the deer from Amuse Studio in Archival Jet Black Ink and watercolored it
  • Once the deer image is dry, I fussy cut and foam mounted on the watercolor panel
  • Then I took a baby pink card stock by Sizzix, folded in half which comes to an A2 sized card
  • Over the main card base, I adhered the watercolor panel 
  • I embellished the card with some shiny stars and glitter to the deer
  • Finally stamped the sentiment from Catherine Pooler Designs in Archival Jet Black Ink

And that finishes the card for today, I hope you like it. Thank you so much for visiting.

If you are interested in purchasing my cards or you want them in bulk, kindly mail to deeptistephens@gmail.com I will be happy to make cards for you! :)

I started by applying Papericious Gesso on a pattern paper (Countryside by Craftangles) and placed the stencil (Damask Delight) and applied Silver Glimmer Paste through it. Once it's dry, I applied Ripe Plums water color over the stenciled part with the help of a paint brush. I also added splatters of black and gold inks.


On the other hand, I die-cut the butterfly by Sizzix, I used watercolor paper for diecutting and the diecutting part was done with the help of Sizzix Sidekick machine. I watercolored the butterfly with the same Ripe Plums ink and applied Gold Glitter to it.


I stamped 'thanks' on a scrap paper with Versafine Ink and heat embossed with Gold embossing powder. Now it's time to assemble everything! The pattern paper with Gesso and Stenciled part was adhered on 4 1/2 x 5 inch card. I foam mounted the butterfly on the card front, beneath that a gold thread was adhered. Then foam mounted the sentiment as well.

HAPPY NEW YEAR | TAG WITH LOVE

 


Happy New Year my dear crafty friends. I hope this 2021 will bring health, joy and peace in our lives. Don't forget to stay home, stay safe and stay crafty :)




I started by die-cutting the images from Garden Florals by Sizzix through Sizzix SideKick Machine and water colored them and kept aside to dry. Next I die-cut a Tag by Timholtz and distressed the background with Vintage Photo and Broken China Distress Inks and added splatters with Vintage Photo Ink.



Then added a light wash of Gesso, placed a stencil and applied texture paste through it. Once everything is dry, I went ahead and stamped the sentiment from Celebration Phrases by Sizzix. Adhered everything together and finished the tag with a simple bow. :)


I hope you like it. Thank you so much for stopping by. Take care and I'll see you next time. :)
