Three Room Friday: Feature Friday Gerbera Daisy

   


Hi Everyone! This is Karen from @cardsstampsandink. Welcome to Three Room Studio's Feature Friday! Today I am SUPER EXCITED to share a card made using the brand new Gerbera Daisy digital stamp!  This stamp set is just right to make quick and easy cards to send hello or to touch base with loved ones! t There are so many sentiments that you can pair this stamp up with that it is great to have in your collection!


I printed this digital stamp on an 8.5 x 11 inch piece of #80 Neenah Classic Crest Solar White paper. I chose to print 16 images on the sheet of paper to get the image to the size that I wanted. My printer says that made the image shrink to about 26%. I then coloured them in with my Copic markers.  


I cut them out and then placed them in the order I wanted. I adhered the first layer of every other colour directly to the card base. Then I popped up the second layer with some foam tape. I stamped the Just a Note sentiment from the Simply Sentiment stamp set with some Gina K Obsidian ink. I added a few gems and that's it!


Thank you for looking at my blog today! Be sure to Always stop by to check out the wonderful inspiration from Three Room Studio!

Magnolia Background: You are the best!

 



Hi Everyone! Here is a card that I made! 

First I pulled out an A2 sized panel of Neenah paper and stamped the Simon Says Stamp Magnolia Background stamp using my Misti.  I then took out some red Copic markers for the petals and green Copic markers for the leaves and coloured the image.  I took my white gel pen to add some interest in the centre of each flower.  

 I then adhered the panel to my card base made of Neenah 110# cardstock with some GIna K Connect glue. I took the You are the Best sentiment from the XL Greetings 2 stamp set and put it in my Misti and stamped it on my Copic coloured panel using some Gina K Obsidian Black ink.  I added a few gems from Studio Katia and that is it! 

Thanks for taking a look at my blog today!

Hero Arts Unity Collection Guest Designer!



Hi Everyone! Today I am so honoured and excited to be the Hero Arts Unity Collection Guest Designer  for June! Thank you @heroarts , @mzdanajoy & @poconopam for this amazing opportunity!







I had so much fun playing with the Unity collection that I made 3 cards! For my first card I used the American Women woodblock stamp.  I stamped it out and coloured it using my Copic markers and then cut it out.  Next  I pulled out an A2 card base and then cut an A2 panel from some grey cardstock and adhered it to my card base. I then took some white cardstock and cut it with one of the  dies from the Hero Arts Postage Infinity die set.  I then stamped the sentiment from the United as One stamp set with black ink. I popped up the coloured image using some foam tape and added a few gems. I put this card together because I immediately thought how fabulous this image would be as a postage stamp. The women poised with their heads held high is something that spoke to me. I hope that you enjoyed my creation. 




For this card I used the Kids United stamp set and  I stamped it out and coloured it using my Copic markers and then used the dies to cut it out.  Next  I  took an A2 panel and some of my markers and created stripes of skin tones on it.  I sprayed some shimmer on it and set it aside.  I then took another A2 panel and used the Hero Arts Heart Confetti Die and cut it out. I adhered the the die cut panel over my striped one and attached it to and A2 card base. Next I popped up the image of the girls  with foam tape and adhered it to the card base. Then I  took a piece of white cardstock and stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set with black ink. I popped it up with some foam tape and voila!  I made this card with the thought that it is children that will lead the future. They will see and embrace all of us as we are… human. 





This shaker card was made using the Hands of Hope Fancy die. I cut it out with white cardstock and coloured the hands with my Copic markers. Then I cut a few more with more white cardstock and 2 out of acetate. I adhered one white heart, one acetate heart and then 5 white hearts together. I took the other acetate heart and stamped the sentiment from the Kids United stamp set and adhered the coloured heart to it. I gathered the hearts that I had cut out with the Hero Arts Heart Confetti die from my other card and used my Copic markers to colour them. I sprayed some shimmer on them and then used them for the shaker bits in the Hands of Hope Fancy die heart. I also adhered a few of the coloured hearts onto an A2 Card base and adhered the shaker piece to it.   This idea for this card came together as I was making the other card. I was thinking how the die cut hearts shouldn’t go to waste and would be perfect if I made a shaker. The elegant Hands of Hope Fancy die is the perfect choice to include and showcase all hearts together as one. Thank you for looking at my projects.
