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.

Never stop dreaming card

Hello. Happy New Year.

I just wanted to say Thank You to each and every one of you who follow me, like and comment on my posts. It means the world.

Today I am sharing a card using the Hero Arts My Monthly Hero kit for December 2018.

I started by arranging my stamps on to get a rough layout for my card. Once I was happy I stamped the two fairies and the ladybird on to Neenah solar white 80lb cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Next I stamped the same images on to some masking paper and cut them out. I then placed the masks over these images. I could then stamp the flowers over the fairy and ladybird. Each time I stamped a flower I made a mask and added it to my scene.

You need to make sure the images you want towards the front or on top of something are stamped first.

Once my images were all stamped and masked I used Distress Oxide inks to blend a background. I used picked raspberry and salty ocean. Once I was happy I Spitzed it with water and lifted the water with a paper towel and then removed the masks.

Now I was able to start colouring. I used copic markers.


Once the images were coloured I added a sentiment and some falling dandelion seeds. I did this by stamping the sentiment in Wow embossing pad then sprinkled with Wow embossing powder super fine metalic platinum. I then used a heat gun to set it.

I finished off the card adding some sparkle to the wings of the fairies using the sparkle pen included in the kit.

I hope you like it. I am really happy with the scene.

Thanks for dropping by.

Birthday Card

Today I made this Birthday card.

I stamped the balloon images from the Honey Bee stamps set Celebration Box on to a piece of watercolour paper and heat embossed with white embossing Powder.

I then used Distress Oxide inks squeezed lemonade and salty ocean to blend the background. I love how easily the Distress Oxide inks blend on watercolour paper.

I used a happy Birthday die and cut out the sentiment in white and black card then layered them before attaching. I then attached the finished piece to a card base.

Thanks for joining me today.

Quick clean and simple card

Today I went to visit my friend as she picked up her new cat yesterday. Straight away I thought of this cute stamp set from My Favorite Things which has the perfect sentiment. So I made a quick card for her.

I used Copic markers to colour the image and made sure the cat was the colours of her new cat Alfie.

I then did some soft ink blending on a card base using blue and green distress inks to ground the image.

I then stamped the sentiments to complete the card.

Cats love boxes

Today I made this Birthday card.

I couldn’t resist putting a cat in the box as my cats love a box.

I used the stamp set Celebration Box with the coordinating dies from Honey Bee Stamps along with the cat from the Mama Elephant stamp set Page Huggers.

I stamped and coloured the images using copic markers. Then uses glossy accents to make the balloons shiney.

I stamped the border stamp for the card using Honey Bee Stamps Zen Floral stamp set.

I heat embossed the swirls and added small gems around the balloons too add some more textured interest.

The sentiment is from the Mama Elephant set Occasional Labels.

Thanks for passing by.

Bright Birthday card

Good morning. I hope you are well. I have been poorly for nearly a week so not much crafting has been going on. I finally managed to find a little energy to make a card which has cheered me up.

I used the Mama Elephant stamp set called Page Huggers with the coordinating dies for this card.

I stamped three of the the mouse image with Memento tuxedo black ink on to some xpress-it blending card and coloured the images using copic markers. I also stamped and coloured two envelope and two present images from the set for the mice to hold.

Next I took a strip of watercolour paper and used distress inks to make the rainbow then spritzed it with water to create the distress look.

I stamped the Birthday sentiment from Mama Elephants Words Defined stamp set on to the rainbow and attached it to the bottom of a 6×6 white card base.

Next I attached the mice.

I added glossy accents to the glasses and used the C00 copic marker to ground them with a little light shading.

I hope you like the card.
