Colour Outside The Lines

Hello! We have Stempelfrida here on the blog today with a fabulous vibrant card to brighten the day!

‘Creative people colour outside the lines’ …this is the motto of my card today. The saying is from the set “Brighten the World” from Visible Image. I also used the “Mindful Moments” stamp set with the great meditation stamps, and as an eye catcher I used the pattern from the “Ink Swirls” stencil.

First, I stamped the meditating person on masking paper and cut it out. For this I used non-permanent adhesive labels. This tip I once got in a craft group and that works really great. I bought the labels in A4 and so you can cut quite great masks that adhere well enough to colour, but are also to be removed again without residue. Compared to other options they this is also a rather cheap one.

I stuck the mask to my square background.

Then I applied acrylic paints to my round Gelli Plate and put the stencil with the swirls over it. The I made the print on the white cardstock. You can see the result in the photo. I then left the mask still on the print and first made a border with yellow paint around the person and then outside the yellow shadow a line in pink. Then I pulled off the mask.

I also coloured my text outside the lines with acrylic paints after stamping and then trimmed it to my liking. I attached it to my print with spacer pads, drew black lines on the edges and added liquid half pearls.

Stay Mindful | Handmade Card

Hello and Happy Sunday to you! We hope you have a relaxing day planned, or can at least squeeze in a little time just for you ♡ Jane is here today with a gorgeous card featuring our ‘Mindful Moments’ stamps…

Good Morning

Today’s project showcases the  Mindful Moments stamp set. I decided to be use the summer sunshine and enjoyment of sandy beach holidays for my inspiration.
What is better than the sun shining at the seaside?

We will be back here in September and I can sit and be mindful of the blessings I have in my life.

Our beloved Rhodes..

This is the fab set which has lots of great accessory stamps and sentiments to use both for cards, tags, mixed media and journalling.

mindfulness - stamps - meditation - yoga - let go - calm

I also used one of the sentiments from the Look Forward with Hope stamp set

Hope - sentiment stamps - inspiring quotes

I used PaperArtsy infusions to create my background and then stamped the sentiment.

I added some mustard seed Oxide ink to tone things down a little

and stamped the sun into the corner.

I used the oxide to colour the centre of the sun

I die cut an ornate frame in gold

Next I stamped the main image and some of the flowers onto acetate coloured with alcohol inks and cut them out.

 I also stamped “let go” onto yellow vellum

Then it was time to put everything together.

Here is my finished card…

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Back soon.
