I have a just for fun card to share with you today! I mentioned recently about upping my game on cards for the males in my house. Today is one of those. You see, when you live in a house of “boys” (big and little), video games are a way of life, apparently. While I’m content to leave them at it, I also get to hear lots about the games. When I actually remember stuff, they are impressed with me. So that brings me to today’s card.
When I recently got a fun new set of products from Ink Blot Shop, one of the things I got was the Pixel Grid Stencil with Pixel Grid Masks. I had it out on my desk when my husband said that it looked like a “companion cube”. Not shockingly, I had no idea what he was talking about. So the boys showed me. And then, I actually got one (with chocolate inside) as part of a funny gift. See, the love language of our house. That inspired me to go forth and create an actual card. I used the grid, the small heart stencil and Karin Brushmarker Pros. I started with the center and then just kind of went from there. I added a sentiment from the coordinating Spaced Out Greetings set. The boys gave me feedback as I went along and my husband was pretty impressed when he got the card. Proof that I do listen (sort of) to all the conversations they have!
Hope your week starts great and I’m glad you stopped by today. Back soon with more that I have been making.
I went with a super clean version of the sketch. Maybe a little too clean but I just could not get this set out of my head to use. It is called Botanical Borders from the Ink Blot Spot. I love the sweet little images in the set and the super usable sentiments too. I did some quick Copic Marker coloring and then added a few sequins.
Thanks for dropping in today. Just a reminder, I still have one of the mystery boxes available if you are interested. Check out the last post for details. Hope you have a great day!
Happy New Year!!! As promised, I was working A LOT over the holidays. Out again today but I did have a minute to make a card this week. Amazing how the break in creating makes it hard to get back to it. I just kind of sat in the craft room. Started cleaning up from the holiday mess and then inked up some Copic Markers that needed love. I finally got some inspiration from this wonderful new to me set from the Ink Blot Shop. You know that I love small shops and she is absolutely the nicest owner! Stop over to visit her! I don’t have an affiliate, I just appreciate an owner who is wonderful to the crafting community and Tiffany is just that.
I fell in love with this Giant Rainbow Stamp Set the second I saw it. It has a coordinating stencil but I just wanted to use those freshly inked Copics. And coloring is almost always the best way to get my mojo back. I chose simple rainbow colors and added just a little shading.
I originally planned to make a single layer card but then I realized how easy this was to cut out. So I did that and popped it up on a base that I brushed with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink. The sentiment is from the same set an there are a few all meant to coordinate perfectly with the rainbow.
Ok, that’s it. I hope you had a happy and safe holiday season. I hope to get back to more creating over the next few weeks but I have to admit that I’ll be doing a bit of mom time. My oldest is home from college for a bit longer so I’m going to enjoy that as much as he can stand. Thanks so much for stopping in. See you soon!
