Fall Polka Dots

Fall Polka Dots 1

Hello everyone!! This is Berina here today with a simple Fall themed Polka Dots card using the Brutus Monroe September stamp club stamp.

I used the ink colors Phonebook, Jack O Lantern, Maple and Plum to create the polka dot background. I used the brown butter card stock for matting and for the sentiment panel. I heat embossed the sentiment from the Super Sentimental stamp set with Penny Embossing Powder and adhered the die cut panel with foam tape.

Foiled Snowflakes!

Foiled Snowflakes! 1

Hello everyone! It's Berina here with a beautiful Winter themed card.

I started by applying the Decofoil Transfer Gel on Midnight Card stock over the Snowflakes Stencil. Once dry, I foiled it with Tidepool foil and adhered it on to an A2 card base. I took another piece of Midnight card stock and heat embossed the sentiment from the Merry & Bright stamp set with Sterling embossing powder. I die cut it with a circle die. I then adhered it on to the card with foam tape for a quick and easy holiday card.

This card is pretty easy and quick for mass producing for Christmas. The foil adds a touch of elegance! What do you think? Please do let  me know in the comments below.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!

Fall Color Theme with Foiling

Fall Color Theme with Foiling 0

Hello everyone!! It's Berina here today, with a fall color themed card with Rose Gold foiling.

I started by blending the following colors on a piece of white card stock - PlumMarsalaJack O Lantern,  Phonebook and a little bit of Macchiato around the edges. I cut a piece of Floral Sketch Designer Toner sheet and foiled it with Rose Gold foil. I used Thermoweb sticky tape mini runner to adhere it on to the inked panel. I took an A2 card base and adhered thin double sided tape on the left and right edges. I adhered rose gold foil on to the tape as well. I adhered the inked panel with the foiled panel on to the card. For the sentiment, I foiled a piece of adhesive toner sheet from Thermoweb and die cut it with the Thank You die. I die cut a circle from white card stock and inked it with the same colors of inks, but in the reverse direction. I adhered the sentiment on to this circle and adhered the circle on to the card.

How do you like this card? Please do let me know in the comments below. Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day!

 Hello everyone! It's Berina here today, with a monochromatic masculine card using the Brutus Monroe Glitterstock!

I took the Charcoal Glitterstock and die cut it with the Star Stitched Dies and created those solid stars and the star frames. I cut a thin strip of charcoal glitterstock and adhered it along the edges of an A2 card base. I adhered the die cut stars and star frames throughout the card. I stamped the sentiment from the Super Sentimental stamp set with Midnight surface ink and matted the panel with a piece of charcoal glitterstock. I added the sentiment with foam tape.

How do you like this super easy masculine card? Please do let me know in the comments!!

Pause My Game

Pause My Game 0

 Hello everyone! It's Berina here today with this clean and simple card using another card sketch.

I recently used a few sketches to make cards and I really liked it. So I decided to try one more for today. This is the sketch I used (available here).

I made some modifications to it! I cut out 1" squares from Sea, Light Aqua and Dark Aqua card stocks and arranged them on to the card base, to form the pattern. Then I used a piece of purple tape to lift them all together and then added glue on the back and adhered them all down on to the card base. This was easier to do. Then I stamped the sentiment "I'd Pause my game for you" from the Gamer stamp set with Sea, Oz and Cabana surface inks. The ink colors match the card stock colors perfectly! 

How do you like this card? Please do let me know in the comments.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!

You're My Favorite!

Hello everyone! It's Berina here today with a card with layers using the new deco foil! Recently, I made a card using a sketch, that was well beyond my comfort zone, and I should say I kind of liked it. So  I decided to try another sketch this time.

 I started by applying a thin coat of deco foil transfer gel on to a piece of dark aqua card stock and foiled it with tide pool deco foil after it dried. Then I cut it into a banner. I used the remaining from the panel I had created for my card here and inked the edges with Sea surface ink. I tool a piece of white card stock of size 4" x 5 1/4" and stamped the smaller stamp from the Create A Cameo stamp set with Cabana ink. I used second generation stamping as well to get a variation in color. I stamped the sentiment with Cabana ink on a piece of white card stock and die cut it with a label die. Now I just assembled the layers and adhered them with Brutus Monroe glue. For the sentiment label, used foam tape. Here's a playlist of videos that I've done on foiling.

How do you like this card? Please do let me know in the comments! I love these ink colors! Aren't they beautiful with the tidepool?
