Another Pair

Hello, it’s Rubeena here, excited because I’ll be posting here every Wednesday for The Ton! Today’s card features Shoe Wardrobe Lined. One of my favorite crafters Kathy at The Daily Marker is starting a 30-day coloring challenge today, and I have accepted the challenge as well! I decided to get out some of my Copic markers and color in the shoes from this amazingly unique shoe set.

This is my card:

This card was not difficult but it did take me some time due to the coloring. I started with size A2 white cardstock that I die-cut using the largest die from Mama Elephant’s Peek a Frame Creative Cuts. I die cut out a smaller rectangle from the center, stamped the shoe shelves in Versamark, and heat embossed them in white. The MISTI helped me to align everything properly! This is the first time I’ve taken the tool out since I received it weeks ago and feel it’s so worth it.

I stamped different pairs of shoes over the shelves using Memento Tuxedo Black ink since it’s safe to use with Copic markers. The Copic colors used were completely random, and some of the pairs of shoes were finished off with Zig Wink of Stella Brush in Clear Glitter.

The sentiment was stamped with Versamark on the bottom middle part of the A2 layer I had cut out earlier. It was heat embossed in black. This layer was added to the card base using foam tape and the inner layer was glued without foam tape so it looks like it’s a shelf inside. I felt that it would be best not to add any other embellishments! What do you think?

Thanks for visiting! Tomorrow we’ll have our new DT member Jess share even more creativity with you, and I’ll be back next Wednesday with another card for you. Have a great day!

New Card: Converse Sneakers and Ombre Hearts

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!  We’re featuring a card created with our Shoe Wardrobe Lined stamp set.  I paired up the Converse Sneaker and some Lawn Fawn die cut hearts for this card (I kinda love this combo!).  I used some heat embossing, die cutting, distress ink blending and overstamping techniques for this pretty pink card!

First I blended some distress inks (Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick) over some white card stock from top to bottom for an ombre effect. Then I die several hearts using some adorable Lawn Fawn heart dies.  I adhered the hearts onto the card stock and then stamped the Converse shoes from our Shoe Wardrobe Lined set in Hero Arts Neon dye ink partially over the die cut hearts and partially onto the card panel.

The sentiment is from our Sketchy Menagerie stamp set.  I actually cut the “wild” from the sentiment because I found myself inking up the wild in different colors from the rest of the sentiment.  It just made it easier to cut the stamp than to cover or mask the sentiment each time I wanted to use this stamp.  The  sentiment was heat embossed using Ranger’s Liquid Platinum and Red Tinsel embossing powders.

Next, I sprinkled on some of our pink heart confetti to add some pink metallic shine.  Then I adhered the card panel onto a soft pink card base to finish off this playful card!  That’s all for today! Thanks for stopping by everyone and Happy Valentine’s Day!
