A little hello {Hobbykunst}

Hi, everyone. I’ve got a quick, simple card to share today. I was at my local craft store last week and bought a sweet little die set I just had to use on today’s card.

The die set is this bunting set from Dovecraft. I diecut all three dies in three different colors of Papertrey Ink cardstock (Hibiscus Burst, Enchanted Evening, and Soft Stone), and layered two of each. I usually layer up more than two, but I’m running low on pink scraps and didn’t want to use the pink cardbases I’ve made.

I glued all the triangles to my white cardbase a little haphazardly, added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins to embellish a tiny bit and stamped a sentiment from an Inky Wings stamp set using VersaFine Onyx Black and called it done.

Christmas in July {Mo’s Dream Team}

Another Wednesday, which means it’s Mo Manning time, and it also happens to be July already. What happened to June? It really flew by faster than ever. I actually have a Christmas card to share today, nothing is as natural as Christmas in July, right?

I’ve featured Gingerbread Man! on this card. It happens to be a free digital image, and I’ve flipped it, repeated it and rotated it all across a background before using four different brown Copics (E27, 25, 23 and 21) in addition to T2 to color all of them. Some are more burnt than others, I didn’t want a uniform look.

Once my panel of gingerbread men was finished, I glued it straight to a cardbase made from Dark Chocolate cardstock from Papertrey Ink before adding a diecut sentiment heart with foam tape. I used Pure Poppy cardstock (also Papertrey Ink) and a Papirdesign die.

I scattered a few Papirdesign enamel dots for my finishing touch.
