Purrfect Birthday Card

Hello. I hope you are well. Today I am sharing a card for Time For Tea Designs using the cute clear stamp set called Mew are Pawsome

I started by masking off a section of a card base to ink blend on. I used a round blending tool and blended Distress Oxide inks in Carved Pumpkin, Mustard Seed and Squeezed Lemonade. I then spritzed the inked area with water and soaked up any excess with a paper towel. I also flicked from a paintbrush some White Gold and Champagne Gold Gansai Tambi watercolor to add some shine. It’s hard to see the shine from the pictures.

I set the background aside to dry and worked on the images.

I stamped the cat and hat images and coloured them in with Copic markers. To make the cake I stamped the fish image then made a mask to place over the top. Once the mask was in place I stamped the candle on the top and the cupcake below the fish. I then removed the mask and coloured the image with my markers.

Once the images were cut out I adhered them to the background panel with a tape runner. To complete the card I stamped the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo black ink. I used my Misti so I could give it a couple of stamps over the shiney watercolour.

This completes the card.

Until next time.

Places You’ll Flamingo Card

Hello. I hope you are well.

The flamingos on the Lawn Fawn stamp set Flamingo Together get me thinking about one of the items on my bucket list which is to visit Aruba. I decided to use this as inspiration for my card.

I started the card by stamping some flamingos on to some Copic friendly cardstock. I then coloured them using my Copic Markers, I did the same with the palm trees, cut them all out and put them to one side.

Next I worked on the background. I took a piece of white cardstock to make a card base and blended my Distress Oxides straight on top. I masked an area for the sky and blended salty ocean. I then masked the sky to blend the sea using peacock feathers. I used antique linen for the sand, making sure there was a small white space between the sand and sea areas to represent the waves.

Once the background was dry I stamped the sentiment using Memento Tuxedo black ink and used foam squares to adhere the flamingos. I the adhered the palm trees using a tape runner to complete the card.

Take care for now

Mermazing Birthday Card.

Hello.

Today I am sharing a card for Time For Tea Designs. I used some of the clear stamps from the Mermazing release. Available exclusively from Create and Craft

I decided to use watercolours for this card. I started by taking a piece of watercolour card. This is Arches cold press. I took my largest Lawn Fawn stitched circle die and drew with pencil around the outside to give me the shape and area of the panel to watercolour. Next I stanped the images using Versafine black ink.

Once the ink was completely dry I used my Gansai Tambi watercolours to colour the images and the background.

Once the panel was dry I placed the circle die over the top and run it through my Big Shot die cutting machine.

Next I took a 6″x 6″ card base and stamped the sentiment at the bottom. To complete the card I adhered the watercolour panel using double sided tape and added a few sequins for some sparkle.

Take care for now.

Purrfect Birthday Card

Hello.

Today I am sharing a clean and simple card that is quick and easy to make. Perfect for those last minute makes when you need a card in a hurry.

I started by stamping the cat image from Time For Tea Designs stamp set Mew are Pawsome.

I used Memento Tuxedo black Ink to stamp the cat holding balloons image on to Xpress it blending card.

I coloured the image using Copic Markers. I then run it through my Scan N Cut machine to cut the image out.

Next I worked on the background. I took a white card base and distress Oxide inks in Twisted Citron and Tumbled glass and blended them in the bottom left corner of the card to create a background for the cat.

I then stamped the sentiments on the card in Versafine ink.

I cut a strip of black spotty card and adhered it along the edge of the card using a tape runner then used foam pads to attach the cat image to the blended area. This completes the card.

Take care for now.

Floral speedy recovery card.

Hello.

Today I am sharing a card I made for The Little Paper Tree I used a stanp set by Avery Elle called ‘spring bouquet.’

I started the card by stamping the main floral image from the stamp set on to white cardstock. I then coloured it with my Copic Markers. I cut it out and placed it to one side.

Next I made a card base using white cardstock. I used the new Picket Fence Studios life changing brushes to blend some colour on to the card for the background with Distress Oxide inks. Working from the bottom left corner where the flowers will be placed. I started with worn lipstick and blended into spun sugar. I then spritzed some water over the ink and took off the excess water with a paper towel. To add some more interest to the background I mixed some of the worn lipstick ink with some water and flicked it over the background using a paintbrush.
To finish the card i added sentiments from the stamp set. I stamped the ‘wishing you a’ and ‘speedy recovery’ using black ink. I then adhered the flowers to the bottom corner using a tape runner and snipped of the excess stalks with scissors along the bottom of the card.

Mermaid hello card.

Hello.

Today I am sharing a card using a stamp set called Swimming by to say Hi from Time For Tea Designs.

To make the card I started by stamping the cute mermaid image from the stamp set on to some Xpress it blending card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I them coloured the image using my Copic markers. I used the coordinating die and ran it through my big shot die cutting machine.

Next I used a piece of white cardstock and selected three colours of Distress Oxide inks, Blueprint Sketch, Broken China and Salty Ocean to blend the background. Once I had done this I used a distress sprayer to spritz some water on to the blended panel and soaked up the excess water with a piece of paper towel. I then took some Gansai Tambi white gold watercolour paint from the starry colors collection, mixed it with some water and flicked it over my background with a paint brush. This added some nice shine.

I then adhered my mermaid to the centre of the card using a tape runner before stamping my sentiments. I took the ‘swimming by’ and ‘to say’ sentiments and stamped them above the mermaid then stamped the ‘Hi’ sentiment below her. I also stamped some fish in the background using Distress Oxide Hickory Smoke.

To complete the card I added a few sequins.

The swimming by to say hi stamp set is available to purchase exclusively on Create and Craft TV, follow the link below and take a look at the other cute clear stamp and die sets available. International delivery is available.

Fox Birthday Card

Hello. Today I am sharing a card I made inspired by the ‘let it shine’ class from Altenew Academy.

This class is all about different ways to add shine to cards.

To start the card I used Altenew stamp set ‘Hug Me’. I stamped the fox holding balloons and decided to use bright colours. I used my Copic markers to colour the image. I the cut it out using my Scan N Cut machine. I then added glossy accents to the balloons and set it aside to dry.

Next I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the same stamp set in black ink on to a card base I cut a strip of glitter cardstock and adhered this to the edge of the card. I then adhered the fox. To finish the card I added some sequins around the fox.

Glitter cardstock and sequins are a great way to add shine to any card without distracting from the main image. Keeping this a clean and simple card.
