Super Saturday with Pam – Super Samedis avec Pam

Welcome back to Super Saturday.  For today’s card I started with a piece of white cardstock and used a blending brush to lightly cover it Salty Ocean Distress Ink. 
Next, I stamped the Wild Miscanthus stamp Peeled Paint Distress ink.  I added more color to the stamp with TomBow markers and stamped again.  I cleaned the stamp and stamped one more time with VersaMark ink, then embossed with clear embossing powder.  I moved the stamp and repeated the process two more times.   I added shading around the top edge with Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink.  I stamped the branch stamp along the lower part of the grasses with Distress Inks and Tombow markers.  I adhered the cardstock to the front of an A2 card, then adhered a 1 ½” x 5 ½” strip of blue cardstock along the bottom.  I added a small strip of metallic silver paper along the top edge of the blue strip.  I stamped Happy birthday onto a piece of scrap cardstock that had been covered with Salty Ocean Distress Ink, then die cut it with a circle die.  I adhered it to a slightly larger silver circle, then adhered them to the front of the card.

Jeudi avec… Nathalie / Thursday with… Nathalie

Un chat qui fait la sieste parmi les fleurs… quelle belle vie!

Le motif est étampé en jaune ocre puis rehaussé de crayon de couleur et retracé légèrement, ici et là, au fin marqueur noir.

Le même marqueur noir sert à tracer le cercle au pochoir, puis à ajouter du détail : cadre et fleurs.

A cat taking a nap among the flowers… what a beautiful life!

The pattern is stamped in ocher yellow then enhanced with colored pencil and traced slightly, here and there, with a fine black marker.

The same black marker is used to trace the circle with a stencil, then to add detail: frame and flowers.

Treats on Tuesday with Christine - La gâterie du mardi avec Christine

Hi Everyone, Christine here with one of my favourite bird stamps and Simon Hurley stamping foam.
  • I stamped the large Simon Hurley stamping foam after heating into the embossing folder to create the image for stamping. 
  • swiped Distress Oxide inks over the surface of the foam and lightly spritzed with water before stamping on Mixed Media card stock. 
  • I let the image dry then stamped the image of the bird. 
  • The bird was coloured with pencils and gouache used for the white are on the face. Gouache is more opaque to cover the background colour.
  • I then stamped the wildflowers randomly over the background avoiding the bird.

You can see the foam stamping  and the background stamping more clearly in this picture.
