Two Paper Divas~ Andy Warhol inspired

Happy Friday Crafty Friends, I'm back to share with you an lil' card I made for
http://www.twopaperdivas.com/shop/

Today, I went for an Andy Warhol inspired card using For Peep's Sake.
 I started by embossing the images onto 2x2' square pieces of Watercolor paper with Black EP. Then I used 5 different Distress Inks in Broken Glass, Wild Honey, Abandoned Coral, Evergreen Bough and Seedless Preserves. I then dropped water droplets onto them and blotting extra water with paper towel, to add some texture. I then backed it with Black Cardstock and adhered it to my white and black card base. 

The  Sentiment was done with 3D pop dots for added dimension and some enamel dots finished it off.
Of course, I had to tie the front of my card to the inside and here it is:

So there's a simple and fun lil' card using this month's new release. Don't forget to come back next Friday, I'll have another fun make to share with you!

Two Paper Divas~ A little Birdie Told Me...

Happy Friday Crafty Friends, thank you for stopping by!

I'm back to share with you a very TWEET card
http://www.twopaperdivas.com/shop/

using this month's new release A Little Birdie Told Me

Here we go...


 I did the "Faux Tile Technique" for my background, where you score lines on your cardstock to make your "tiles", then ink the edges, top or bottom...what ever portion of the tiles that suits your design. :o) I used Abandoned Coral and Broken China Distress Inks and then added the sentiment with Black Archival Ink.

Next up, I stamped this little birdie with Black Archival Ink
and colored him with Spectrum Noir Markers and cut him out. I then stamped an extra set of wings and cut them out and used Foam Dots for added dimension. 
I then finished by Layering the card onto some Teal and Coral cardstocks.

 He just makes me smile! So TWEET! lol

  and we cannot forget about the inside of the card:
 I stamped the sentiment with the Broken China Distress Ink and the lil' birdie in  Abandoned Coral as he wanted to peek in to say "Happy Birthday!" hehehe


I sure hope I've inspired you with this CAS but cute card and be sure to come back next Friday as I'll have another make using another set from this month's awesome releases! :o)

Two Paper Divas~Challenge #1- Sketch

Happy Friday Crafty Friends, I'm back to share with you a make for
http://www.twopaperdivas.com/shop/

It's our very first challenge- it will run for 2 weeks ! Woohoo! We have a fabulous sketch for you:
 
Remember you can turn the sketch, but we have to be able to see the sketch in your make! You can find the rules here.
 
Here's my take on the challenge Sketch using Tea Cups
 I did a Shaker card! Love me some shaker cards! LOL
 

I started by embossing the Tea Cups
with white EP onto Strathmore Watercolor paper. I then used distress Inks in Abandoned Coral and Broken China and used it for some watercolor smooshing by pressing pads onto acetate and spritzing with water and putting image on top. 


I used the sentiment from the Tea Cups set but cut it to fit a Ticket Die cut From Echo Park (retired). I squared off the shape of the sketch and used from "Tea Party" by Craft Smith and added a border. Finished with a Bow Die from Maggie Holmes
 
Here's the inside:
 


Thank you for stopping by, I hope I've inspired you and have a fabulous weekend!

Faery Ink~ String of Love Faery

Good Morning Crafty Friends, if you are looking for my TWO PAPER DIVA'S make click here. :o)

I'm here to share a card I made for
http://faeryink.com/

 using the Newly  Released String of Love Faery.
How gorgeous is she??? :o)
I did a soft BOKEH TECHNIQUE for the background as I thought it lent an ethereal feel to the image. I used Distress Inks in "Victorian Velvet" and "Shaded Lilac". Then went over it with Color Box "Frosted White" and a home-made stencil using acetate and Lifestyle Crafts NESTING CIRCLES dies in various sizes. 


I colored this beauty with Spectrum Noir Markers and fussy cut her out. Then I went over her gown with Wink of Stella for some shimmer.
  
and here's a side view where you can see I propped her up with Foam Dots for dimension. 

I finished off with a sentiment from Crafter's Companion "Party Paws- Bamboo Treats" set

Thank you for stopping by and I hope I've inspired you to get crafty today! :o)

Two Paper Divas~ Watt's Up?

Happy Friday Crafty Friends, I'm back to share with you another make
http://www.twopaperdivas.com/shop/

using the newly released WATT'S UP set. 
This set is ADORABLE! As soon as I saw it, I HAD to have it. lol!
 
ADORBS right? lol I used the Love Lightbulb Cutting file by Sarah Bailey. All I did was offset it to create the base and the back of the card. I then scored the back 1/4 in on the left to create the fold. 

  I then stamped the lil' lightbulb inside the heart in Black Archival Ink with the little rays done in Memento "Dandelion" ink. I added some Shimmer with my Moondust Gel pen and finished with the sentiment. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this set!



I used different Sentiment's inside:

They really did "BRIGHTEN UP" the day of the recipients! hehehe

Thank you for stopping by, I hope I've inspired you and have a fabulous weekend!
