Hello. Today I am sharing a card made using one of the stamp sets from the new Lawn Fawn release. The set is called On The Beach.
I started with the background. I cut a rough mask from a piece of purple tape to be the shape of a horizen line. I then used Distress Oxide inks in Antique linen for the sand and Peacock Feathers for the sea. I used a Picket Fence blending brush and added the ink making sure to blend lighter in each colour towards where they meet but not letting the colours touch. This leaves the illusion of white sea foam.
I then took some gold watercolour from Gansai Tambi and flicked it from the edge of a paint brush to add some texture to the sand area. I lightly blended some Oxide in salty ocean over the sky area in random areas to keep some areas of white.
Next I worked on the images. I stamped them on to Neenah solar white 80lb cardstock with Memento Tuxedo black ink and coloured them with my Copic markers. I then cut them out with my Scan N Cut machine. arranged them roughly where I wanted them on my scene and cut away the white border with a small pair of scissors where I wanted the images to overlap (the suncream with the shell and bear with the ball.)
I stamped the sentiment using my Misti and the Memento black ink. Then adhered the images using a tape runner.
To complete the card I added some Spectrum Noir clear sparkle pen to add sparkle to the umbrella.
I hope you like the card. Take care for now.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
