More June Release Cards | Patricia

Hello Friends!  I have a few cards I wanted to share on the Evelin T Designs blog here using the Floral SurpriseUnder the Sea: MerFriends, and the Best Friends Fur-Ever! sets.  

First is the Floral Surprise.  The first card, I colored the entire image with watercolors, let dry, and then came back with detail using polychromos pencils.  For this second card today, I used just the polychromes pencils for a softer look.

After the first layer of coloring, I went back with a just a little bit of shading, keeping this soft.  For the base of the card, I blended a pale blue ink, fussy cut the stamped and colored image, and foam adhered.

Before foam adhering, I placed and stamped the sentiment at the bottom.  LOVE Evelin’s fonts for sentiments!

Next, is the Under The Sea: Merfriends stamp set.  I colored all the images with watercolors, let dry, and fussy cut them out.  Then I went looking in my stash of leftover mixed media creations and found pieces along with pattern paper from my stash to layer for my base.

For the first layer of the card panel, I used a die cut leftover from my first card using this set, then layered and stitched the pattern paper and mixed media panel for my background.  The background was made with Nuvo Shimmer Powder and Embellishment Mousse.  Then I adhered my images.

I used another leftover mixed media piece to stamp my sentiment.

Next is the Best Friends Fur-Ever! stamp set.  I colored all of these pieces with watercolor, fussy cut them out, and then used pattern papers from my stash to create a base, then clustered the images together.

And again, I am so happy with Evelin’s fonts and sentiment choices.  So usable and so many possibilities. My first card I created with this set, was just the larger monster and a coffee sentiment.

Hope you have enjoyed the teams inspiration and have picked some favorite sets to purchase!  Hard to choose, but really ALL so wonderful!

And now let’s see the stamps in action!

I’ve been wanting to illustrate a Munster set (yes, I call them munsters instead) ever since I started Evelin T Designs. Actually, there are so many things that I want to illustrate and get made into stamp sets so… haha… Anyway, this set will also coordinate with our Reading Buddies set to create many different scenes, so if you already have that set, it will be just that much more fun to create with!

To create my card, I stamped the munster and background bush image onto Bristol smooth paper. This paper takes light washes of watercolor. I used Fineline Masking Fluid Pen to mask the images before I applied a light wash of watercolor for the sky and grass area. After the watercolor is fully dried, I peeled the masking fluid off using an eraser (you can also just rub it off using your fingers). Then I watercolored the munster and background bush. I stamped the little girl on a separate paper and fussy-cut it after I watercolored the image and added colored pencils to highlight the image. I also used colored pencils to highlight all the images stamped. I stamped the sentiments on white cardstock and cut them into banner shapes and adhered them onto the watercolored image with some foam tape. Finally, I added some dots onto the sky with a white gel pen.

This card I created is inspired by the sentiment that I chose. I believe that all things grow with Love and that the world can be a kinder, more encouraging place to be if we just have a little more love in our heart and in our speech. Speaking words of encouragement helps grow a person, make them feel valued and have more confidence in themselves and I believe that to be important regardless if the other person is a child or an adult. From those thoughts, I imagined a plant being watered and rainbow shining out from it. I stamped the plant images onto my base cardstock and colored them with colored pencils. The watering can, I stamped, colored and fussy cut. Next, I die-cut the window panel and stamped the sentiment on it. I positioned it where I will be coloring the rainbow in. Then I placed the base cardstock and the panel together and colored the rainbow.

I popped the panel up with thin foam tape just to create a little dimension. The watering can is popped up with foam tape too. As a final touch, I added faux stitching with a grey colored pencil and adhered some rhinestones on the card.
