Easter card with framed rabbit

I think it's time to make Easter cards. Don't you think? So this year this is my first one but I'm sure more will follow this.


The yellow rectangle panel was coloured with Squeezed Lemonade DOX ink.


Then I inked the edges with Frayed Burlap Distress ink.


Then I tapped diluted Picket Fence paint onto the surface with a sponge. With this technique, I toned down the bold yellow and sealed the DOX ink too.


Then I took the Rosette layering stencil and the Opaque Matte Texture Paste and I made a textured surface. 


What I used:

Sizzix Movers&Shapers die, Mini Bunny&Bow

Sizzix Bigz die, Ornate Frame 2

Sizzix Thinlits die, Funky Florals 2

Sizzix Thinlits die, Garden Greens

Polka dot house - hanging decor

I have made this tiny house for a friend who last year have found their dream house, dream home. Unfortunately, the house is still under renovation and they are looking forward to moving in. Until this precious moment, I try to cheer her up with this tiny house. 



I cut out the structure from 300 gsm paper. Then I took a 200 gsm paper and I stamped the polka dot pattern from the Stampers Anonymous Dots&Floral set on. After I heat embossed with Ranger white embossing powder. 

When it cooled down, I inked the surface with Hickory Smoke ink and cut out the structure again.


Then I glued the lighter paper on the heavy cardstock.


On the front of the house, I added tiny windows and a little door, and the number of their future house.

For the roof, I used the Nordic pattern of the Stampers Anonymous Plaid&Nordic stamp set. The process was the same, I stamped the Nordic pattern on the 200gsm paper, then heat embossed with white, then inked with Hickory Smoke.



On the back, I wrote a text: It feels like home. And I added a little heart too.


What I used:

Sizzix Bigz L die, Tiny Houses by Tim Holtz - I used the bigger structure

Sizzix Bigz XL die, Village Dwelling by Tim Holtz - for the door

Sizzix Bigz die, Village Bungalow by Tim Holtz - I used the smaller window

Sizzix Thinlits die, Alphanumeric Label by Tim Holtz - for the text

Sizzix Side Order, Valentine by Tim Holtz - for the tiny heart

Stampers Anonymous, Plaid&Nordic by Tim Holtz (CMS243)

Stampers Anonymous, Dots&Floral by Tim Holtz (CMS220)

Ranger embossing powder, white

Ranger, Distress ink (Hickory Smoke)

Theodore in love

Hello everyone, here is my second inspirational project for the February challenge of the Country View Challenges. The theme is: Splatters, splashes and drips.


For this card, I have made a weathered wooden plank background. I'm sorry, I won't tell you here how I made it, because I've already made and shared with you a similar tutorial. So if you like it, please visit my earlier blogpost.

The only difference, that here I scored the paper more often,  the cover painting was light blue and I splattered with diluted white paint this time.



If you need a tutorial of assembling Theodore, then please visit my earlier blogpost too (that's another one).

The strip on the bottom was made with the Sizzix Impresslits die, 3D Star Trim by Tim Holtz. I cut out from 300gsm watercolour paper and coloured Walnut Stain Ranger Distress marker first, then with Tarnished Brass Distress Crayon.

Blue weathered background with yellow flowers

On Pinterest, I have seen a colour palette that I really liked and which was really inspired me. So I made a card with those colours.


Here is the colour palette.



And here is the tutorial of the weathered background.

A cut out a rectangle panel from 300 gsm watercolour paper and using my Scor-Buddy I scored my panel.

Then I painted brown with Burnt Umber DecoArt paint.


Then I put Schmincke masking fluid on the score-lines, onto the edges and here and there.


When it was dry, I painted with Wedgewood Blue DecoArt Americana paint.


When it was dry, I started to rub off the masking fluid.


The flowers were coloured with Mustard Seed and Fossilized Amber Ranger Distress markers, the leaves with Peeled Paint, the branches with Gathered Twigs.

Sizzix Thinlits die, Small Tattered Florals by Tim Holtz
