Hello crafters, hope you have been having a fantastic June so far. I wanted a bunch of easy cards, so I used pre coloured images from The Hungry JPEG. It was free kit and is still available when I last checked. Hope you like these cards.
The kit I used is the Ballerina Dress. I chose 4 of the dresses in different colours and printed them out on 80lb Neenah white card stock. I also used 3 inks, RANGER Archival Shadow Grey, VERSAFINE Onyx black and the new mini DISTRESS RANGER Archival ink, Fossilized Amber. Besides these, I used liquid glue from COSMIC SHIMMER, some form to raise the image and 4 matching NUVO DROPS. For the beautiful cursive sentiments, I used stamps from KELLY CREATES.
Hope you liked the cards and are inspired to use pre coloured images of your own. Do checkout the below links for free digital images from a few of my favorite digital stores.
Thank you for taking your time to read my post, hope you have a wonderful day ahead. Till we meet again.
Happy 2019 everybody, hope you have had a blessed year so far. Two months have gone by and 10 more beautiful months to go. Lets get to the exciting bits, shall we?
I am delighted to be apart of “DT for A Perfect Time To Craft” design group and as part of my first challenge, I chose the image “determine” from Sheepski Designs Digital Images & Art. If you would like this image and more, click here.
Rock climbing is always something I love to do and thought it was a fantastic image to start my digital journey. After purchasing, you can download the image which came in a .jpg format for me. I then used my Paint 3D on my Windows laptop to edit the image before printing it out on my ancient monochrome Brother printer.
For the first card, I scaled the image to be 3.5 by 2.5 inches. I used Zig Real Brush Markers to colour the boy and some rocks in the image before fussy cutting them out leaving out the rocks he was holding on to. Next, I use the Bold Alphabets Die by Altenew and cut out letter "s", "ï", "n"and "ë". I used a craft colour card stock sized at 1.75 by 8 inch and aligned the letters using the grid on my Tim Holtz's glass mat then adhered it with Gina K's glue.
I used foam tape to pop the craft cardstock up and stuck it to a 4 x 8 inch white card base. I then glued down the boy before finding the right spot for each of the rock cutouts. To finish it off, I used a sentiment, You got this from Simon Says Stamp and a strip of gold mirror cardstock to add a little shine to this masculine card.
For the second card, I resized the image to be roughly 5 x 4 inches. I used the same method to edit and print the image. I then used Zig Real Brush Markers to colour the image. To make it interesting, I drew 2 lines using a T-ruler across the image, creating a 2 inch gap. I then cut along the line and along the picture to create a partial die cut look.
For the card base, I made a 4.25 by 5.5 inch card, then used the lines on the image to cut out matching horizontal lines on the card. After that, I used Gina K's Liquid glue to adhere the top part of the image while lining it up to the cut lines on the card base. Then for the bottom part of the card base, I adhered the remaining cardstock to ensure the feet area of the image is sturdy. I then cut the excess cardstock off.
To finish off the card, I used 2 sentiments from You got this from Simon Says Stamp. To add some bling, I used a two -way glue pen to add glue to the harness and allowed it to dry. When dried, the glue is tacky, I then used Heidi Swapp gold foil to complete the card.
