Hi everyone! I’m excited to show you some cards I’ve made for the Made With Love Design Team. Made With Love is a craft store in Singapore. If you’re living in Singapore, drop by the store in the Somerset 313 mall. All (if not, similar) products showcased are available at the Made With Love store.
Hi everyone! Today’s theme is Simple Shapes. I will share 4 cards using shapes to create a card. I wanted to do this because I really would like to share that if you don’t like colouring images or you just don’t feel like using images, shapes are a great tool for cardmaking. I hope you’ll enjoy my ideas.
Anyways, I hope you’ll read on and check out the different ways you can make shaker cards.
For the first card, all you need are pen, ruler, eraser, pencil and your colouring medium of choice which I, of course, chose the Prima Watercolours. As you can see in the image below, I’ve just drawn out my basic shape. That is all I need. Next, I’ve pop on some youtube videos to watch and started to colour.
For your sentiment, I’ve chosen to handwrite it myself but by all means, use a stamp, die-cut or even alphabet stickers! And for and added blink, I’ve dotted some gold stickles.
Next card is probably my favourite one. I call it controlled confetti haha. I’ve used mini circle dies from Avery Elle. You can use any small die-cuts that you might have. Perhaps, heart-shaped, square, diamond, etc. I’ve die-cut them all in 3 sizes.
Next, I’ve just stuck them down on the card base but only concentrating them all to one side. It would also look really great if you stick them all at the top and gradually have lesser circles as you go down.
I still have some leftover die-cut words from Kaisercrafts from my old posts. I’ve covered it completely with white enamel accents and dotted it all around the card base as well.
This card is great if you have left over scraps of papers and even patterned papers! I’ve just decided to use plain coloured papers for this. I’ve just cut out strips of paper as equally as I can. I’ve used a square-shaped die-cut from Avery Elle to cut out a little window to stick on my sentiment from the Kaisecrafts Die Cuts.
Another simple shape, Squares! I’m using these squares from Avery Elle. They have a nice dotted edge that gives a little something to the card 🙂 So, to start, I’ve just die cut the biggest square twice. One piece is to stick on top of the cardbase and the other piece is to be used when I blend in my distress inks.
I wanted to create a vibrant look without going back to my rainbow route. So, I’ve used Squeezed Lemonande, Spiced Marmalade and Barn Door Distress Inks. When I blend in my colours, I like to start with the lightest colour. Remember to keep going back to the first colours to make sure that everything is blended smoothly.
So that’s all the four cards for you! I hope you’ve enjoyed them and if you have questions please drop me an e-mail or leave a comment. Have a great week!
