Cool Yule card

Hello.

Today I am shring a card featuring the ‘You’re Elephantastic’ and ‘Warm Winter Wishes’ stamp sets from Tim For Tea Designs. Along with some Lawn Fawn snowballs!

I started by making the background. I blended Distress Oxide inks on to a piece of white cardstock using Picket Fence Studios blendung brushes, then added some splatters of white acrylic paint.

Next I stamped all my images in Memento Tuxedo black ink on to Xpress it smooth cardstock and coloured them using Copic markers.

I die cut two borders from the stiched hillside dies from Lawn Fawn and added a little Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink to the edges, then adhered them to my background panel using a tape runner. I stamped the sentiment in Versafine onyx black ink.

Next I adhered all my images to the background using a tape runnerand foam pads to give some dimension to the elephant and snowballs.

To complete the card I added some wink of stella glitter pen to the snow.

Thanks for dropping by.

Mermaid shaker card

Hello.

I have been so busy with my work commitments that my crafting took a back seat for a while but I am back with a shaker card using Time For Tea Designs stamps and dies to create a shaker card.

I stamped and Copic coloured images from the ‘Shell Phone’ and ‘Mermazing’ clear stamp sets and die cut them out.

Next I selected Distreas Oxide inks in Tumbld Glass, Salty Ocean and Broken China and used Picket Fence Studios blending brushes to apply the ink to two separate pieces of card to create a backgrounds. Once dry I splattered some Gansai Tambi watercolour in white gold over both pieces.

I die cut a window from one of the blended pieces of card to create a frame, then attached an acetate window to the back of the frame. I stamped the sentiment on to the acetate using Versafine ink. Stamping over three times to get a good impression. Stazon ink would have worked better but my pad needed reinking. Next I added three layers of foam tape to the back of the frame and filled it with ‘Aquamarine’ sequins from Doodles Paper Playground. I attached the background panel to the frame to crrate the shaker.

I adhered the die cut images to the front of the card and added some white opal loquid pearls, some glossy accent dots and applied some wink of stella glitter pen to the mermaids hair and tail to complete the card.

Thanks for dropping by. Take care for now.

Waving Hello Card

Hello. Today I am sharing a scene card using old and new stamp sets from Lawn Fawn.

I used the stamp sets Mermaid For You and Smooth Sailing.

I took a piece of Neenah classic crest 80 lb cardstock and stared by blending Distress Oxide inks to create a sunset background . I masked off half the card panel with purple tape and a small semi circle to represent the sun. I used Mustard Seed, Carved Pumpkin, Picked Raspberry Dusty Concord, Chipped Sapphire and Salty Ocean. Starting with the yellow and working up, I used Picket Fence Studio blending brushes and added lines of colour, building up the layers for each colour until I was happy with the blend. I then removed the semi circle mask and went over it with the yellow lightly to blend out the white colour of the card.

Next I worked on the sea. I did exactly the same as I did for the sky just switching up the colours of ink to Mustard Seed, Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch and Tumbled glass. I made sure not to go too heavy on the yellow and light blue as they do create green when the mix but this was ok for how I wanted my scene to look.

Once the inking was complete I used my favourite Gansai Tambi white gold watercolor and flicked it from a paint brush over the blue area of the sky and the sea.

I decided to add a distant mountain so cut a mask to the shape I wanted and added Ground Espresso ink.

I took a piece of Neenah 80lb solar white card and stamped out my images in Memento Tuxedo black ink, masking the lighthouse and stamping the rock overlapping and masking the bear and bunny, stamping the boat on top. I coloured the images with my Copic markers and fussy cut them out. I then went around the edges with a black marker.

I used a tape runner to adhere the images to the card and stamped the waves, birds and sentiment in the black ink.

To complete the card I added a gold gem to the lighthouse and attached the panel to a card base.

Purrfect Day Card

Hello.

Today I am sharing a card for Time For Tea Designs combining a digi stamp with clear stamps.

I started by printing the phone from the Time For Tea Designs Bonnie hey friend digital stamp set. I coloured the outside of the phone using my Copic markers. I then took the clear stamp set Mew Are Pawsome and stamped the cat in a box image into the middle of the phone, using Memento Tuxedo black ink. I drew in some lines to look like there was a skirting board and coloured the cat, box and surrounding areas to look like the cat was in a room having his photo taken!

Next I fussy cut the image and set it aside while I worked on the background. I took a card base, some Distress Oxide ink in spun sugar and a stencil from Altenew called ‘watercolor stripes’ I went over the stencil with the ink using a blending tool then leaving the stencil attached spritzed some water over the inked areas and soaked up any excess water with a paper towel.

Once the ink was dry I took the sentiments from the mew are pawsome stamp set and stamped them on the background. To complete the card I adhered the phone with a tape runner.

I hope you like it. Thanks for dropping by.

Mermaid Birthday Card

Hello. Today I am sharing a card using clear stamps from Time For Tea Designs.

I used two clear stamp sets ‘Swimming by to say hi’ and ‘Mermazing’

These stamps are available exclusively from Create and Craft

I started by stamping the mermaid, starfish and shell images on to X-press it blending card with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I then used my Copic markers to colour the images. I cut them out and placed them to one side.

Next I worked on the background. I cut some masking paper to mask the corners and leave a wave shape through the centre of a card base. I then used Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink with a blending tool to add colour over the area. To add the bubbles I took the Time For Tea Designs ‘wonderful waves’ stencil and used the bubbles to stencil over using Blueprint sketch Distress Oxide. I then spritzed the inked area with water and soaked up the excess with a paper towel.

Finally I stamped the sentiments using my Misti and adhered the images, using foam pads for the mermaid and a liquid glue for the shells and starfish to complete the card.

Thanks for dropping by.

No ProbLlama shaker card

Hello.

Today I am sharing a card designed for The Little Paper Tree

I started the card by stamping the images from the stamp sets out on Bristol cardstock and coloured them using my Zig clean colour real brush markers. I only used three colours and blended them with water using a small paint brush to create shading and lighterareas of colour.

I took a 6 x 6 piece of white cardstock and die cut a heart. I then stamped the sentiments on the front. I attached a piece of acetate inside the panel using liquid glue and set this aside to dry. I then attached the stamped images to the front.
I made a card base to measure 6 x 6 and blended some Distress Oxide ink on the front where the heart window would sit.
I then took the front panel and turned it upside down. I attached foam tape around the heart shape, making sure there were no gaps. I then attached pieces of foam tape on the rest of the panel ready to adhere it to the base. I filled the heart window area withsequins. I then attached the card base to the front panel to complete the card.

This was such a fun card to make.

Take care for now.

Unicorn Shaker Card

Hello.

It’s been a little while since I shared a shaker card but when I saw that Doodles Paper Playground were having a Birthday giveaway and contest I decided it was the perfect opportunity to share one to join in the fun #showmeyourshaker.

I immediately though of my cloud dies from Honey Bee stamps and some unicorns would be perfect for a shaker. This is how I made the card.

I started by cutting a card panel from Neenah 80lb to 4 and 1/4 by 5 and a 1/2 inches. I also cut 2 pieces of fun foam to the same size.

I placed 3 of the cloud dies from the Honey Bee Stamps set ‘Partly Cloudy’ on to my piece of card. Once I was happy with the placement I ran it through my Big Shot die cutting machine.

Next I used Distress Oxide inks in Spun Sugar, Tumbled Glass and Squeezed Lemonade to add some colour to the card panel. I then used a Distress sprayer to spritz the panel with water and used a price of kitchen towel to soak up any excess.

I stamped out some images from The My Favourite Things stanp set Magical Unicorns and coloured them using Copic markers. I used my Scan n Cut to them out.

I stamped a sentiment from the MFT set and I adhered the images to the panel.

Next I worked on the shaker element. I adhered the 2 pieces of fun foam together. I then lined up the clouds from the front panel and cut 3 sections out of the fun foam that were slightly larger than the clouds.

I took a piece of acetate and adhered it to the back of the front card panel and adhered the fun foam panel on top of the acetate. Once the glue was dry I filled each of the cloud holes with sequins.

I took a card base and used the Distress inks to blend ink where the clouds would sit. Once this was day I brushed over the area with an anti static powder tool.

To complete the card I adhered the card base on top of the fun foam.

Thanks for dropping by.
