Thank you for coming over to have a look at my blog

A Card From Inked Backgrounds inc. Video Of It Being Made

Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before).

YouTube Video

Today I am going to show you how I made a card by starting off with two of the backgrounds I made during my inking session mid February. (You can see the blog post about creating the backgrounds – Here!, inluding video links.)

Starting off with these –

  

I stamped giraffe and a tree onto one, added lines for the horizon and to ground the silhouettes, used what ink there was left on my applicator to darken the area towards to top right, before matting image onto black and then onto the other blended background.  Then stuck the card onto a Black base card.

Today’s videos showing the cards being made :

What I Used

These are what I used in my play session:

Pieces Created

This is the card I created.

I decided not to put a greeting on the outside, only inside.

.

I have several bits of different crafting on the go at the moment, so keep an eye out for them over the next few weeks.

 More Welsh Birthday Cards For Family Members

I’ve written before about several family members having birthdays in January and February.

This time I have cards I made for my mother and myself to give to two different family members.

Quick, simple, cards this time with not a lot of matting or layering, or any fancy embelishments.  The first is for a male, the other two for a female.

I used toppers from the same set of Polyanna Pickering wildlife images for all three cards, and also used corresponding backing papers.  The base card in each case is a scored and folded A4 sheet of Adorable Scorable cardstock.  I used fingerlift tape and 2mm deep, double sided, foam tape  to stick the pieces together.  I used a 0.5 fineliner pen to write the greeting on some of the cards.  All have Penblwydd Hapus Iawn (Welsh for a Very Happy Birthday) inside.

Card 1

Card 2

Card 3

.I’m currently working on a few projects – very slowly – but still working on them.  So keep an eye for more finished items, with videos, as well as Works In Progress, over the next few weeks.

Welsh Birthday Cards For Boys

I’m sure I’ve told you before that several family members have their birthdays in the first couple of months of the year.  Well today it’s time for me to show you some Welsh birthday cards I made for my mother to give my two youngest nephews.

If I tell you that one loves steam engines and old fashioned machinery, and also tell you that they have horses on their farm, it’s quite obvious why I chose the particular images I did for the cards.

This first one is made using an image from one of the Hunkydory “Little Book of …”  not quite sure which little book it was though. This was matted onto a sheet of Hunkydory miricard that was pre-cut to fit. I used a pre-foiled and scored Kanban base card.

This is another photo of the same card taken at an angle to show that the matted image is raised, which I did by using 2mm deep, double sided, foam tape rather than fingerlift tape.

This image for this second card also came from a Hunkydory “Little Book of …”.  I think it could have been the same book that the previous image came from and that it was one of the male themed books.  It was also matted and raised before putting onto the same type of foiled base card as the first one.

.

I’ve got several more cards to make for the family, so keep an eye out for them, along with some other crafting projects I’m working on.

Welsh Sympathy Cards 3

Some More Welsh Sympathy Cards

Hi and welcome (or welcome back) to my blog.

I said, in a previous post, that I had an order for 12 Welsh Sympathy Cards as well as Welsh Birthday Cards, and I’ve shown you 12 in two sets of six – here and here – but I then decided to give the customer a bit more of a choice, so before I sent the box of sympathy and birthday cards to her I made more cards. My stock of sympathy cards for family use has been greatly depleated and I needed more made in any case so I knew that I’d need any my customer didn’t choose for our use.

So I’m writing this post to show you the three extra cards I put in for my customer to choose which ones she wanted from the Sympathy and Birthday cards.  She chose 13 in total from both types, so that’s a bit of pocket money that’s gone straight into new crafting purchases.  Who knows, she may come back for more in the future.

The images for all three of these cards are from a collection of images called “12 Religious designs” by Vicki Avcin.  I resized and put them all onto one page in My Craft Studio Elite before printing it out onto 120gsm Super Smooth heavyweight paper.   I also took copies of the images onto blank pages to convert them to greyscale and create insert layouts with suitable greetings so that I’d have matching inserts for all tge cards.

For this card I cut out the image and went round the edge with a fineliner to create a dashed line. This was matted onto a piece of mirror card before sticking onto the front of an A6 white base card, and finishing it off with a peeloff.

And this is the matching insert inside.

Another image from the same collection. This time I cut it out up to the image edge before sticking onto a piece of black cardstock and matting that onto frosted gold coloured card. This time I put it onto an A5 base card ànd added a peeloff greeting.

This is what the matching insert looks like.

Another image from the same collection, but this time I used a Kanban card with decorative border and matted the image onto silver mirror card, and finished off with a pèloff greeting again.

Here you can see the insert I stuck inside with fingerlift tape.

I also added three Welsh birthday cards to the box so that she’d have a choice of 12 from 15 birthday cards as well, but those cards were ones from my drawer of cards I’ve made before so I’ve already shown them on my blog – I think!

More Welsh Birthday Cards

Hi and welcome to my blog if you are visiting for the first time, and welcome back if you are a return visitor.

I’ve written previously about being asked to make Welsh Sympathy and Birthday Cards.

Well today’s blog is about the second half dozen Birthday cards I made. (You can see the post showing the Sympathy cards here and here, and the first half dozen Birthday cards here.)

This first card was made using a Hunkydory Decolarge topper with around half the decopage layers.  The base card was also made by scoring and folding in half one of the A4 background sheets in the same collection.  As the cardstock has a lace printed decoration on it near the top and bottom I decided to add a piece of lace down one side of the topper.  I used 2mm deep, double sided, foam tape to attach everything together and fingerlift tape to put a suitably worded insert inside.

This is a closeup to try and show the dimension of the topper.

This card was made using a pre-scored A5 white card base and a background and toppers from Kanban. Fingerlift tape was used to stick on the background and the insert, and 2mm deep, double sided, foam tape, was used to stick on dancers and keyboard. A simple Welsh Happy Birthday peeloff was added.

And again a view to show that the topper is raised.

The base card is a pre-scored 8″ square white card. I think that the backing paper and topper came from a Craftwork Cards collection, but I’m not sure. If you know differently let me know. The backing paper and insert were attached using fingerlift tape, and the topper and greetings banner were attached using 2mm deep, double sided, foam tape. I finished off by putting two strips of Pinflair peeloffs around near the edge.

I’m not sure where the backing paper came from, it was in my stash from somewhere. The card is a pre-scored A5 white card. The bachground was stuck over half the card , Pinflair peeloffs were used to edge the card and panel. Then the topper, which I think is from a Hunkydory collection, was attached before finishing off with a Peeloff greeting and an insert.

This 6″ square card is decorated using mirror card and a Pollyanna Pickering image. The same peeloff greeting was put on the front as well as the insert inside.

This next photo is of the same card showing the dimesion between layers.

This A5 card is decorated using three copies of an image from one of the floral themed “Little Book Of …” from Hunkydory.  One was stuck directly to a miri mat from Hunkydory, while the rest were cut into so that I had layers to decoupage. The matted image as well as the decoupage layers were added using 2mm deep, double sided, foam tape. The insert inside has the same greeing as the peeloff I put on the front.

This next photo is of the same card trying to show the different layers created by cutting out some of the flowers from two extra sheets of the same image and sticking them on using 2mm deep, double sided, foam tape.

A Couple Of Birthday Cards

Some Welsh Birthday Cards

January and February sees several family members having their birthdays therefore it’s time to get busy makeing some Welsh “Penblwydd Hapus” birthday cards after the Christmas and New Year season is past.

Today I’ve got two cards I made for my mother and myself to give to my niece.  They were made using some items from one of the Hunkydory Decolarge kits I’d used when makeing the variety of Welsh Birthday Cards for an order that I’ve started to show you previously.  But these have been put together in a slightly different layout with some difference in the layers I chose to use for the decoupage (I did say in my previous posts how I wasn’t using all the layers provided for the decoupage and therefore getting a second topper out of what should be each very deep decoupage).

Both cards are of country cottage scenes.

This first one has a rectangular topper.  I used a sheet of cardstock from the same kit, and as the cardstock has a bit of a lacy look I added a piece of lace under one edge of the topper.  I used 2mm deep, foam tape, to attach all the layers.

Here are a few more photos of the same card from different angles to show the dimension of the topper.

The second card has an oval topper.  Again I used a sheet of A4 matching cardstock from the same kit to score and fold to make the base card.

And next are a couple of photos to show the topper dimension.

.

I’ve got several more cards to make for the family, so keep an eye out for them, along with some other crafting projects I’m working on.

Some Welsh Sympathy Cards

Hi and welcome to my blog.

Previously I’ve shown you the first six from a collection of 12 Welsh Sympathy Cards I was asked to make.

Today I’ve got the second six to show you.

For this card I used a digi stamp – Beautiful Lilies Digi Stamp by Stephen Poore – that I printed out onto 120gsm Super Smooth heavyweight paper.  This I coloured in using alcohol markers (Promarkers – Blossom, Flexmarker – Apple, and Nuvo Marker – 405).  This was cut out, matted and layered, and stuck onto an A5 white base card in landscape orientation.  A greeting, printed out onto the same paper, was also added.

I also printed the same digistamp, together with a greeting, out onto the same type of white paper, to use as an insert.   For this I printed it out in a shade of grey instead of black, and didn’t colour on in.

For this simple A5 card I took a floral image from one of the Hunkydory “Little Book Of …” and matted it onto one of the Hunkydory mirri mats. This matted image was then stuck to the front of the card, whuch was finished off with a peeloff greeting and an insert with the same greeting.

Another card made the same way as the previous one .

For this one I also used an image from one of the Hunkydory floral “Little Book Of …”, but I took two copies of the image and cut one up to give me flower pieces to decupage. I printed out a greeting for this card which I cut out and matted onto a piece of the same mirror card as the mat for the main image.  Fingerlift tape was used  for this matting and also for layering the greeting onto the front of the image. I then used 2mm deep foam tape to attach the additional flower layer.

This is the same card with the photo taken at an angle to try and show the dimension of the decoupaged flowers that overlap the greetings panel.

The base card I used for this card is a pre foiled 6″ card from Kanban. The image is one from a collection of images called “12 Religious designs” by Vicki Avcin.  I resized it before printing it out onto 120gsm Super Smooth heavyweight paper. After cutting it out I matted it onto some mirror card and then stuck the matted image onto the card using 2mm deep foam tape.

You can see that the matted image is slightly raised by the the foam tape in this side photo.

I also used the My Craft Studio Elite software to quickly build up a matching insert by turning the image into greyscale and adding a greeting.  The same paper was used for printing and it was inserted into the card using more fingerlift tape.

This is another image from the same “12 Religious designs” by Vicki Avcin.  This time I printed it out twice and cut the praying hands and cross out from one image.  The main image was matted onto some of Lynda’s brown cardstock and then onto frosted gold cardstock.  I then used 2mm deep foam tape to add the cut out layer to the front image of the card, and then to add the matted image to the front of an A6 white base card.

Here’s a side view to show the dimension created with the foam tape.

In the same way as I made an insert for the previous card I made one for this card as well.

Welsh Sympathy Cards 1

Some Welsh Sympathy Cards

Hi and welcome to my blog. Whether you are a returning visitor or somebody who is here for the first time, I’m glad you’ve popped over for a look.

I’ve been asked to make a dozen Welsh Sympathy Cards, as well as Welsh Birthday Cards. No guidlines on style required for the Sympathy cards, so I’ve gone for a mixture of black and white and coloured, from a religious look with a cross to a simple flower and greeting.  Today I’ve got the first six to show you.

This first card was made simply just using a Tattered LaceDemure Feather Die“, a Tattered Lace butterfly die, a greeting that I printed, and another Tattered Lace die “Velvet Lace Mini Ruffle Square Die” for the mat. I’m not sure what each of the dies is called though.

This next card was made using various bits, including the base card with two appertures already die cut, from a card kit I bought via Create and Craft a long time ago.  I’ve dug it out and used bits of it for several cards lately but can’t remember the name of the collection or manufacturer.  Again I used peeloff greeting both inside and out. I drew  a fine, dashed, line zaround the edge of both apertures and the mats that were stuck to the back of the insert.

For this card I used a fine liner pen to draw a black line around half a cm in from the outside edge.  I took a simple floral topper that had an integral frame and matted it onto black cardstock before sticking it on the card front.  I also matted a greeting I’d printed out onto the same type of cardstock before attaching it to the card.

The items to make this card came from the same collection as the double apperture card I showed above, so can’t give you any links for what I used.

I don’t make many A6 size cards (much easier to simply score and fold an A4 sheet of cardstock in half to make an A5 base card), but I have a box of pre scored card bases in different sizes and decided to make one small, simple, card for this selection.  All the components were cut out using different Tattered Lace dies, including the greeting.  I think the kini flowers are ones I got lately in a collection with the Magazine subscription, but the others I’ve had for a while and I can’t remember their names. Tattered Lace are the only die company that have made a set of Welsh greeting dies as far as I know.  If you know of any others please let me know.

My last card from this batch is a simple one.

I took an image from one of the Hunkydory floral Little Books.  Layered it onto one of the Hunkydory silver cardstock mats that come pre-cut to the right size for the little book images.  I used Fingerlift Tape to attach the image to the mat and 2mm deep, double sided tape to add the matted image to the A5 card front. I then added a peel-off greeting and an insert. The peeloff is silver and in bottom left corner but it doesn’t show up very well in this image unless you click to see it larger.

Here’s a closeup showing the slight dimension of the matted topper off the card.

I will be back with the rest of this batch of Welsh Sympathy Cards order in a future post.

Welsh Get Well Soon Card

Thank you for clicking over to have a look at my blog

A Welsh “Get Well Soon” Card
Cerdyn “Brysiwch Wella”

We heard that the lady who owns the care company that all our carers come from is not well and has spent a night in hospital.  Of course the first thought Mam and I had was that we had to send her a “Get Well Soon”, which is “Brysiwch Wella” in Welsh, card.

So out came some of my older Hunkydory kits and I found a base card and a cute little topper of a hedgehog in bed with a teddy looking after it.

So I grabbed some foam tape and I put this card together – this is one Hunkydory card I put together more or less as intended, except that I added a Welsh, peeloff, greeting both outside and inside and didn’t use any of the supplied greetings.

I hope she likes it.  Gave it to one of the carers to take into the office so that it can be passed along to her.

Here are some closeup photos of the topper so that you can see the dimension.  I used the 2mm deep foam tape for all the layers.

I’m working on some cards for an order now, as well as birthday cards for the family.  So hopefully I’ll be makeing several posts over the next few weeks to show y ou what I come up with.

Welsh Symapthy Card

Welsh Sympathy Card

-oOo-

A couple of days ago I posted the first in a series of posts about 3D printing. You can see it – here.

Today’s post is a bit of very clean “mixed media” LOL – made of cardstock and PLA+ filament.

I went online to a site called Thingiverse and downloaded the file for a Celtic Cross by lorenmcconnell.

This was then sliced in Ultimaker Cura and printed using nephew’s current 3D printer – a Creality Ender 3 Pro (more on 3D printing and how he got this in a future post) – using white PLA+ filament.

I was very impressed with the detail achieved an such a thin item.

I then used a Tattered Lace corner die to cut into the corners of a sheet of white, linen textured, cardstock that had been cut to slightly less than A5 in size.  I also cut some layers using other Tattered Lace dies – Tattered Lace Strung Lace Diamond Die and an oval die.  All out of the linen textured cardstock.  I even made the base card from the same cardstock.

I used some foam tape to attach some of the layers and wet clue to attach others.

I finished off by adding a peel off greeting “Gair o Gysur”.

This is what my card looked like after it was finished.

.

My nephew and I have more posts planned on his ventures into 3D printing, including the construction of the 3D printer used for the cross element on this card, so please keep an eye out for those.
