Day 54 Card A Day 2019: Card Challenge (Silhouettes)


We’re part of a small card swap group that has two monthly challenges. We bowed out of the experienced cardmaker challenge this time (we’re already a little swamped!), but we did the beginner challenge for a shadow card with ink blended background. Here are our swap cards for the month.

Lori:This was my first time trying the Northern Lights with Distress Oxides. I made the aurora on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# cardstock with Distress Oxides in these colors: Chipped Sapphire, Seedless Preserves, Salty Ocean and Pistachio. For the shimmery starry sky look, I sprayed Imagine Crafts Shimmer Spritz lightly over the blended background. I added this to a GKD Plum Punch cardstock base. Next, I cut the mountains from Lawn Fawn Stitched Mountain Borders in Gina K Designs Black Onyx cardstock,the snow caps in MFT Gravel Gray, and the hills and trees from Sunny Studios Woodland Borders in MFT Steel Gray and Gravel Gray. Last, I stamped the “Thinking of You” from MFT Brushstroke Expressions in Versamark, heat embossed it in Nuvo Glacier White Fine Detail, and added a tiny bit of sparkle over the hills and trees with more Shimmer Spritz.

Devyn: I haven’t done many Distress Oxide backgrounds before (this is probably my third one) but this was super easy! They don’t take long to do and they blend really fast. I started off with Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# cardstock and blended Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Fired Brick, and Seedless Preserve Distress Oxide inks. I used My Favorite Things Beach scene die set to cut the ocean with the DCWV Glitzy Glitter 6×6 Cardstock Stack and the sand with Gina K Black Onyx cardstock. I added a shiny effect to the sand with Nuvo Midas Touch Aqua Shimmer Pen. From the same die set, I cut the sun from Gina K Designs Lemon Drop cardstock and the palm tree from Black Onyx. The sentiment is from Honey Bee Blah Blah Blah, I heat embossed that using Nuvo Glacier White Fine Detail. I adhered it all to a My Favorite Things Paver Red cardstock base.
