Guest Designer Michelle Short – part 2

Hello there, Michelle here and I am delighted to be back sharing a card I have made with the Funky Pineapples set. What a fun set! It is so versatile and I love the designs on the pineapples. 

 I started off by stamping one of the pineapples on to a piece of white cardstock, using black ink. I coloured the pineapple using Copic Markers and then fussy it out using scissors. I took a piece of Bristol paper and blended over some Distress ink, spritzed with water and then once dry, I die cut it using a stitched square die. This was added on to a yellow 4.25” square card base with tape runner. 

I took the ‘hello there’ sentiment from the Monkey Madness set and stamped it on to some black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and then heat set. I cut the strip in to two with a craft knife. This was added to the card with foam tape. I then added the funky pineapple with a mini action wobble and added google eyes to him. It is difficult to see in the photos, but the action wobble gives the pineapple lots of dimension and it is so fun when it wobbles!

 

A big thank you goes to Maria and the Krumspring team for having me guest with them this month. I have really enjoyed it!

Best wishes,

Michelle

Guest Designer Michelle Short – Part 1

Hello there, my name is Michelle and I am delighted to be guest designing this month with Krumspring Stamps. Let me introduce myself a little, I am from London, UK. I have been card making for over 10 years now and my style can be defined as clean and simple. I first came across the owner of Krumspring, Maria, on Instagram. Those triangles really grabbed my attention! My card today uses the Monkey Madness set, along with the Awesome Triangle Wizard stamp.

I started my card off by creating the background. I took the Awesome Triangle Wizard stamp and inked this using Versamark Ink. I added white embossing powder to the ink and then heat set. I blended over various shades of pink and red Distress Inks and then spritzed with water. I set the piece aside to dry and then cut it down with a rectangle die.

I took one of the monkeys from the Monkey Madness stamp set and stamped this with black ink on to white cardstock. I took the ‘I love you’ sentiment from the set and stamped this inside the heart. They were then coloured using Copic Markers. I fussy cut the monkey out with scissors and then set about assembling the card.

I added the background panel to a black card base with foam tape. I then added a circle of vellum followed by the monkey (also added with foam tape). To finish off, I added black Nuvo Drops. I especially love the Awesome Triangle Wizard stamp and I see myself using this a lot! That’s it from me today, see you next week!
