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. I used the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut a panel from black card stock before adhering both panels together and to my card base using Scor-Tape.

Valentine’s Day Card Using Lawn Fawn’s “Stud Puffin” Stamp Set!

Hello lovelies!
I have a Valentine’s Day card to share with you this week using the “Stud Puffin” stamp set from Lawn Fawn!
123
I started by stamping my images using my Misti stamping tool and Gina K Amalgam Jet Black ink. I coloured my images using my alcohol markers, added highlights and details using a white gel pen before fussy cutting them out. I used Lawn Fawn’s “Outside In Stitched Hearts Stackables” and “Lacy Heart Stackables” die sets to cut out two of the medium hearts from white card stock. I set my images and the lacy heart die cut to the side so I could stencil my other heart. I used the “Stained Glass Background” stencil from Honey Bee Stamps with Spun Sugar and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Inks to colour my die cut before adhering both of my hearts together with Scor-Tape. I used 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape to pop my images up on my heart.
4
I cut a panel from white card stock using the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and a black panel using the largest of the set. I used Worn Lipstick and Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Inks to blend my white panel, splattered it with some water to distress it and cleaned up any excess. I also used Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink diluted with some water to splatter my panel also.
5.jpg67.jpg
Once my splattered panel was dry, I wrapped some light blue and white twine around the centre, making sure the twine crossed over itself. I then secured it in my Misti to stamp my sentiment from Waffle Flower’s “Sending Love” stamp set using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I popped my heart up in the centre of the twine using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape before adhering my panels together and to my card base using Scor-Tape.

Love Themed Card Using Waffle Flower’s “Sending Love” Stamp Set!

Hello lovelies!
Now with the holidays over we can sometimes start to feel a little lost, not knowing what to really create for next! I’ve decided to start on some Valentine’s Day/Love themed cards to get over the holiday blues. Starting with the adorable “Sending Love” stamp set from Waffle Flower!
123.jpg
I cut two panels from white card stock using the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts. In one of the white panels I cut a heart window using the medium die from Lawn Fawn’s “Outside In Stitched Hearts Stackables” dies, I’ll be using this window as a stencil to blend on to my second panel. I placed Honey Bee Stamps’ “Stained Glass Background” stencil over my white panel and secured it in place before lining up my panel with the heart window on top of that. I used Worn Lipstick and Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Inks to blend over my stencils, creating a jewel effect on the heart. I removed the stencils and cut another small heart window on a smaller piece of card stock, placed it over my panel slightly overlapping my larger heart, I blended it with Shaded Lilac and a little Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Inks.
456
I wrapped some blue and white twine around my panel, adhering it on the back with some washi tape. I secured my panel in my Misti stamping tool and stamped my sentiment just above the twine using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black Ink. I stamped my image using my Misti and Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink once again and coloured it with my alcohol markers. I added highlights and details with a white gel pen before fussy cutting it out and adhering it to my panel with 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I used the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut a panel from black card stock. I adhered both panels together and to my card base using Scor-Tape.

1

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.

Just Because Card Using Mama Elephant’s “Wish Upon A Star” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
“Just because” cards are probably my favourites to make, as I tend to send cards to my loved ones quite often out of the blue to let them know I’m thinking of them. The “Wish Upon A Star” stamp set from Mama Elephant is adorable and I had to get it, especially when I saw that bunny on the moon!
1
I stamped all of the images out in my Misti using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink and coloured the three images I planned to use for my card using my alcohol markers. I added white highlights and details using a gel pen before I fussy cut them out.
23.jpg
I cut a small scalloped panel from white card stock using Mama Elephant’s “Framed Tags” Waverly Creative Cuts. I secured it in my Misti and stamped the clouds using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink again. I coloured the clouds with my alcohol markers using the colourless blender to blend the grey ink out a little. I used Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” Honey Cuts to cut a window towards the top of my panel.
4
I cut another panel from white card stock using the small scalloped die and blended it with Victorian Velvet and Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Inks. I splattered it with some white metallic watercolour paint to give the illusion of stars. Once the paint was dry I adhered this background behind my panel with the clouds so the colour would only show behind the window. I adhered the bunny sitting on the moon flat to my panel using Scor-Tape and popped the cloud up just below him with 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape.
5
I used the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut a panel from white card stock. I put down some pink metallic watercolour paint on to my glass craft mat, sprayed it with water and placed my card stock in to it repeatedly, being sure to dry it using my heat tool between layers. I splattered the panel with the same watercolour paint (slightly more concentrated) and set aside to dry. While the paint was drying I stamped my sentiment on a strip of white card stock using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink again and cut in to the ends to create my banner. I adhered my scalloped panel to my background panel with the watercolour paint, adhered my sentiment banner flat under the window using Scor-Tape and popped the bunny up to the side of it using foam tape. I cut one last panel from white card stock to frame my scene using the largest of the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and adhered everything to my card base using Scor-Tape.

Cute Card Using Lawn Fawn’s “Let’s Toast” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
This week I’m here to share a cute love/friendship themed card using Lawn Fawn’s “Let’s Toast” stamp set! I love sending these cards to my closest friends and not only my significant other, just to let them know how much I care!
1.jpg2.jpg
I stamped some of the images from the set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured them with my alcohol markers. I added a little extra shading to my toaster using coloured pencil to give it some extra texture as well. I stamped the images’ rosy cheeks with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink, added some highlights and details with a white gel pen before fussy cutting out my images. I used a craft knife to cut a slit in the first toaster slot so I could adhere one of my pieces of toast inside the toaster with ease!
345.jpg
I trimmed a piece of patterned paper to the height I wanted for the base of my panel and cut it with the second largest of the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts from Mama Elephant. I cut a panel from white card stock using the same die, lightly blended it with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink and splattered it with the same colour for added texture on my background. I cut a thin piece of white card stock to make a border between the patterned paper and my background, I blended it with some Iced Spruce distress oxide ink lightly before adhering all my pieces together.
67.jpg
I adhered my toaster with the toast popping out slightly flat to my panel. I wanted the other slice popped out completely, so I stamped the motion lines with Iced Spruce Distress Oxide Ink above my toaster before popping the other slice of toast and the butter up with some 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. For my sentiment I cut down a thin strip of black card stock and prepared it with my powder tool. I stamped my sentiment using Versamark ink, I coated it in Lawn Fawn’s White embossing powder, set it with my heat tool and popped it up with foam tape also. I used the largest of the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut a panel of black card stock to frame my scene and adhered everything to my card base.

Simple Watercolour Card Using Mama Elephant’s “Flying With Friends” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
Today I’m sharing a simple card using the “Flying With Friends” stamp set from Mama Elephant! I’m guilty of always wanting to add “more” to my cards but sometimes a simple small scene is all you really need!
1.jpg23.jpg
I cut a panel from watercolour paper using the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts. I stamped the elephant on the left first using Ranger Archival Jet Black ink and created a mask for him before stamping my second elephant sitting next to him. I coloured my images and created a soft background for them using my Altenew watercolour paints. Once my paint was dry I added some highlights to my images with a white gel pen. I prepared my panel with my powder tool applicator before stamping my sentiment from Lawn Fawn’s “Let’s Toast” stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black ink to the top left of my images, I coated it in clear embossing powder and set it with my heat tool.
4.jpg5.jpg
I created a panel from white card stock using the largest of the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and ink blended it with Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Ink around the edges. I distressed my panel with my Distress Sprayer and cleaned up the excess water. Once my panel was dry I adhered my watercolour panel to the centre and adhered them to my card base.

Cute Valentine Card Using Stamps From Heffy Doodle & Mama Elephant!

Hey lovelies!
I’m here with an extra post today as I wanted to publish this in time for Valentine’s Day this week! This is my personal favourite of all the cards I’ve created for the occasion this year!
1.jpg2.jpg
I started by drawing a rough estimate I wanted the shape of my pile of letters to be. I took my small envelope stamp from Heffy Doodle’s “Yappy Happy Mail” stamp set and stamped a couple along the bottom using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, I created masks for the envelopes using some post it tape. I repeated the masking and stamping process until I was happy with how it looked.
3.jpg4.jpg
I cut a section of the letters out with the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and proceeded to colour my envelopes with my alcohol markers. I added some white highlights to the hearts on the envelopes with a white gel pen and fussy cut the top edge.
56.jpg
I cut a panel using the same die from white card stock and blended Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink up from the bottom to the point where it would peek above the pile of letters. I blended Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Ink from the top of the panel and together with the Worn Lipstick before spraying the entire panel with my Distress Sprayer. Once my pink panel was completely dry I prepared it with my powder tool applicator as I wanted to emboss my sentiment. I stamped my sentiment from Mama Elephant’s “Flying With Friends” stamp set using Versafine Onyx Black ink, coated it in clear embossing powder before setting it with my heat tool. I adhered my pile of letters flat to the bottom of the panel.
7.jpg8.jpg
I stamped my pig image from Mama Elephant’s “Hogs and Kisses” stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured him with my alcohol markers. I added some white highlights with my gel pen before fussy cutting him out also. I popped him up on my pile of letters using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I wanted to add some extra envelopes so I stamped, coloured and fussy cut a couple out separately before popping them up with foam tape around my pig and in the pile of letters for some added dimension. I cut a panel from white card stock using the largest of the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and blended it with Iced Spruce Distress Oxide Ink, I distressed my panel with my Distress Sprayer and cleaned up the excess water. Once my panel was dry I adhered everything together to my card base.

Coffee With A Splash Of Love! Using Altenew’s “Coffee With A Splash” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
Sharing another love themed card this week, this time I’m sharing my love for coffee with you using the Altenew “Coffee With A Splash” stamp set! This style is way out of my comfort zone as I’m familiar with using cutesy images on my card, it’s always good to dust off the cobwebs and dive in to something a little different!
1.jpg2
I started by cutting two panels of card stock from the largest and second largest of the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts from Mama Elephant, one from black card stock and the other from white. I used Vintage Photo Distress Ink to create the coffee background by placing some of the ink on to my glass craft mat, spraying it with water, repeatedly placing my white panel in to it and drying between every layer. I used the same ink and some gold metallic watercolour paint to splatter my panel also to add a little more texture to the background. Once my panel was completely dry I stamped my coffee stains all over the background using Versafine Onyx Black ink.
3
I cut a circle from black card stock using Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” Honey Cuts. I prepped my circle with my powder tool applicator, stamped my coffee cup with Versamark ink and heat embossed it using Lawn Fawn’s white embossing powder.
45
I cut a sentiment strip from white card stock and prepped it with my powder tool applicator. I stamped my sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink, coated it in clear embossing powder and set it with my heat tool. I adhered both my black circle with my coffee cup and my sentiment strip to my background with 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape before adhering my background to my black panel. I adhered this to my card base and finished with some Ebony Black Nuvo drops for embellishment!
