Appreciation Card Using Brutus Monroe “Geared Owl” Stamp!

Hello lovelies!
This week I want to share an appreciation card I made using Brutus Monroe’s “Geared Owl” stamp
1
I used my Misti stamping tool to stamp my image using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I coloured it with my alcohol markers, sticking to grey/brown/golden tones. I used a white gel pen to add some highlights and details before fussy cutting it out.
24
I used Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut out three panels, two from Neenah Classic Crest white card stock and one from black card stock. I cut a window in my smallest panel using Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” Honey cuts and splattered my largest panel with black ink and gold metallic watercolour paint.
3
I took a small piece of watercolour paper (big enough to cover the back of my circle window) and used some water to dampen it. I placed spots of metallic watercolour paint randomly on the paper and covered it with clingfilm, scrunching it up to get the textured look I wanted by moving the paint around under it and set it aside to dry.
5
I stamped my sentiment from Heffy Doodle’s “Wingman” stamp set directly on my smallest panel using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I popped this panel up on my watercolour panel and popped my owl up on my panel also using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I used Scor-Tape to adhere all of my panels together and to my card base.

Simple Friendship Card Using Mama Elephant’s “My Pet Puppies” Stamp Set!

Hello lovelies!
Today I’m sharing a friendship card using the “My Pet Puppies” stamp set from Mama Elephant!
1
I used my Misti stamping tool to stamp my images using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I coloured them with my alcohol markers and added some highlights and details with a white gel pen.
234
I die cut a panel from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest card stock using the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts. I cut a panel using the same die from some watercolour paper and die cut a circle in the centre using Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” Honey Cuts, this will act as a stencil to get the circle on my white panel. I layered the “Stained Glass” stencil from Honey Bee Stamps over my circle stencil I made and blended on to my white panel using Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Inks using the “Life Changing Blender Brushes” from Picket Fence Studios. After removing my stencils I splattered my panel with blue and green metallic watercolour paints, once that was dry I popped my images up at the bottom of my circle using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape.
56
I used my Misti once again to stamp my sentiment using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink, trimmed it down to size and popped it up on my panel with foam tape before adhering my entire panel to my card base.

Thinking Of You Card Using Brutus Monroe “Rose Garden” Stamp!

Hello lovelies!
I’m back this week with a thoughtful card using Brutus Monroe’s “Rose Garden” stamp! Roses have a special meaning to me so I had to pick this one up!
12
I trimmed down some watercolour paper and put down some ink from my Distress Inks (the oxides will work for this too) in Fired Brick and Abandoned Coral on my glass crafting mat. I mixed them with a little water before also preparing my watercolour paper with water too, to allow the inks to move around easier. I painted both colours on in a random fashion and allowed them to blend together where they met, leaving some areas darker than others. As a last minute decision I added in some gold spots with metallic watercolour paints before scrunching up some clingfilm and covering the watercolour paper, moving the inks and paint around with my fingers through the film until I was happy with it. I set it aside to dry completely before removing the film, this creates different shapes and patterns for your background!
34
Once it had completely dried, I used my powder tool applicator to ensure embossing powder would only stick to where I stamped. I secured the paper in to my Misti stamping tool and stamped my image using Versamark ink. I coated the ink in Lawn Fawn’s White embossing powder and set with my heat tool. I used Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut a panel from the area I wanted and splattered it with some gold metallic watercolour paint to add some more texture and shine.
56
I trimmed a panel from black card stock slightly larger than the patterned panel before cutting a white panel and another black panel using the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts once again to frame my patterned panel. I adhered all panels together using Scor-Tape. I stamped my sentiment from Altenew’s “Paint A Flower: Daffodil” stamp set using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink and trimmed it down in to a thin sentiment strip, framing that with some black card also. I popped my sentiment up on my panel using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape and adhered my panel to my card base.

Two Cards Using Hero Arts’ “Fresh Citrus” Bold Prints Stamp!

Hello lovelies!
This week I’m sharing two cards I made using the Hero Arts “Fresh Citrus” Bold Prints background stamp! I love these stamps, they make it easy to produce multiple cards!
124
I cut a panel from white card stock using the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts. I used my Misti stamping tool to stamp the background on to my panel with Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink, making sure to remove the foam from my Misti beforehand. I stamped a small portion on a small piece of scrap card stock I had left over from a previous project also, so I could colour and fussy cut one of the lemon’s from it to use as an accent later on. I coloured all of the images using alcohol markers and highlighted them with a white gel pen.
35
I used Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” to cut a window from my background and set the circle aside for a second card. I adhered blue and white twine to the back of my window panel so it would show only through the circle.
67
I cut a panel the same size as my background and also a slightly smaller one using the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts. I lined up where I wanted my sentiment to go within my circle and using my Misti I stamped it using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I paired stamps from Mama Elephant’s “Sweetest Greetings” and Heffy Doodle’s “Yappy Happy Mail” stamp sets. I popped my window panel up on the sentiment panel using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape, popped up my extra lemon within my circle also and adhered my panel to my card base using Scor-Tape.
P66 HA Fresh Citrus Bold Prints2

For my second card I popped my patterned circle up on my white panel I cut previously using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I wrapped twine around the bottom of my panel this time, adhering it on the back once again. I cut a panel from black card stock using the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to frame my panel. I stamped my sentiment from Waffle Flower’s “Bear Hugs” stamp set on to a scrap piece of white card stock, trimmed it in to a banner and popped it up across my circle. I adhered both panels together and to my card base using Scor-Tape.

Friendship Card Using Lawn Fawn’s “You’re Just My Type” Stamp Set/Mama Elephant’s “Big News” Stamp Set!

Hello lovelies!
Valentine’s Day has passed but I like to make my stamp sets work more year round, so to create this card I combined the images from Lawn Fawn’s “You’re Just My Type” stamp set alongside sentiments from Mama Elephant’s “Big News” stamp set!
12
I stamped out my images from Lawn Fawn’s “You’re Just My Type” stamp set using my Misti stamping tool and Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I coloured them using my alcohol markers, added details with a white gel pen and fussy cut them out. I cut a panel from white card stack using the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and used my Misti and Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink once again to stamp the blank page image in a random pattern. I added shading with a grey alcohol marker and blender marker. I secured my panel back in my Misti and stamped my chosen sentiments from Mama Elephant’s “Big News” stamp set using Broken China Distress Oxide Ink.
3
I cut a circle from black card stock using Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” Honey Cuts. I partially cut the circle with the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts so it would fit perfectly on my panel in the bottom left corner. I adhered this circle to my patterned panel using Scor-Tape.
45
I adhered my images using Scor-Tape and 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I cut a panel from black card stock using the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to frame my panel. I adhered both panels together and to my card base using Scor-Tape.

Love Themed Card Using Hero Arts’ “Candy Hearts Peek-A-Boo” Cling Stamp!

Hello lovelies!
This week I’m sharing another love themed card, I like to have a few extra of this style on hand to show my appreciation for people throughout the year.
1
I die cut a panel from watercolour paper using Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and a large scalloped panel from black card stock using Mama Elephant’s “Framed Tags” Waverly Creative Cuts. I removed the foam from my Misti stamping tool and secured my watercolour panel to stamp my background using Hero Arts’ “Candy Hearts Peek-A-Boo” Cling stamp set and Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. Once the ink was dry I watercoloured my candy hearts using Altenew’s Watercolor 36 Pan Set and set it aside to dry.
23
I used the Lawn Fawn “Outside In Stitched Heart Stackables” and “Lacy Heart Stackables” dies to cut 3 small hearts from both white and black card stock. I adhered my white hearts to my black hearts and secured them in my Misti. I stamped my sentiments from Mama Elephant’s “Big News” stamp set using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink.
4
I popped my sentiment hearts up in a row down the centre of my panel using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape before adhering both of my panels together and to my card base using Scor-Tape.

Simple Love Themed Card Using Waffle Flower’s “Love You Bunnies” Stamp Set!

Hello lovelies!
Valentine’s Day is just a few days away now, so I’m sharing another love themed card this week! The bunnies from Waffle Flower’s “Love You Bunnies” stamp set are adorable!
1
I used my Misti stamping tool and Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink to stamp my images out on white card stock. I coloured them using my alcohol markers, added details with a white gel pen and fussy cut them out. I adhered the coffee cups to their hands using Scor-Tape.
23
I cut two panels from white card stock using the second largest die from Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts. I used the smaller scalloped die from Mama Elephant’s “Framed Tags” Waverly Creative Cuts to cut a window from one of these panels, this would act as my stencil. I adhered both of my panels together using some washi tape, blended over my stencil with Twisted Citron and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Inks and distressed it with some water.
4
I secured my panel back in my Misti so I could stamp my sentiment using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black Ink. I popped my images up using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape.

Encouragement Card Using Mama Elephant’s “Book Worm” Stamp Set!

Hello lovelies!
I have a sweet encouragement card using a new-to-me stamp set, Mama Elephant’s “Book Worm”! I’ve loved this set ever since I spotted it and knew I had to make a card to share with all of you!
12
I used my Misti stamping tool and Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink to stamp my images from the set, I used some post-it tape to mask one pile of books so I could build a taller pile also. I coloured them using my alcohol markers, added highlights and details with a white gel pen and fussy cut them out.
3
I used the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut a panel from white card stock, I also used the largest from this set to cut a black panel to frame this panel at the end. I drew two lines where I wanted to separate my background to imitate the floor and wall, I coloured in between the lines with my alcohol markers. I masked up to the line with post-it tape and used Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink for the bottom section of my panel. I masked the bottom section up to the line next and blended the top portion of my panel with Worn Lipstick and Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Inks.
45
I secured my blended panel in to my Misti and stamped my sentiment from Pink Fresh Studio’s “Word Series: Dream” stamp set using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I arranged and adhered all of my images using Scor-Tape and 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape, framed my panel with the black panel I mentioned earlier and adhered to my card base.

Just Because Card Using Hero Arts’ “Staggering Branches” Stamp Set!

Hello lovelies! Happy New Year! I hope you all had an amazing time celebrating and are walking in to the new year feeling refreshed, looking forward to the year ahead!
This week I have a simple watercolour card to share with you all using the “Staggering Branches” stamp set from Hero Arts! This style of stamp is usually out of my comfort zone, but I’m trying to push myself this year to try new things and not get stuck in a creative rut (we all know what it’s like to hit that wall!).
1
I secured a piece of watercolour paper in my Misti stamping tool and stamped my images in the arrangement I wanted using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I love how with this stamp set you can customise the image to your liking with the antlers and branches, it gives you a lot of creative freedom! Once I had my images stamped how I wanted, I used the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut out my panel. I usually cut my panel first, but I wasn’t sure which placement I wanted beforehand this time so I found it easier to stamp first in this case! I used Altenew’s Watercolor 36 Pan Set with my Altenew Watercolor Brush in medium to paint my images.
23.jpg
While the paint was drying I secured a piece of black card stock in my Misti, prepped it with my powder tool applicator and stamped my sentiment using Versamark ink. I coated my sentiment in Lawn Fawn’s White Embossing Powder and set it with my heat tool before trimming my sentiment down to size. I used a white gel pen to add faux stitching along the edges of my sentiment and popped it up in the bottom right of my panel using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I added highlights and details to my images using my white gel pen once again. I used the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut a panel from black card stock to frame my watercolour panel and adhered them together and to my card base using Scor-Tape.

I secured my white panel in my Misti stamping tool and stamped my images and sentiment using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I coloured my images with alcohol markers and added details using a white gel pen. I used a drawing pencil to add a shadow under my little mouse. I adhered my panels together and to my card base using Scor-Tape.
