Cute Firework Scene Using Lawn Fawn and MFT Stamps!

Hey lovelies!
With Guy Fawkes night just around the corner I created this “just because” card using the gorgeous new “Winter Skies” set from Lawn Fawn alongside MFT’s “Fireworks” set! We don’t usually send cards for Guy Fawkes night here, but for me if there’s a celebration that’s reason enough for me to make a card to send to my loved ones!
1.jpg
I cut a panel using the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts from Mama Elephant, stamped my fireworks using Versamark ink, coated them in white embossing powder and set with my heat tool. I blended Abandoned Coral, Mermaid Lagoon and Seedless Preserves Distress Ink in small areas all over my panel before blending Black Soot Distress Ink all over keeping it darker towards the edges. I sprayed my panel with my Distress Sprayer and cleaned up the excess water. I splattered the entire panel using white watercolour paint and some metallic gold watercolour paint to give a slight shimmer.

I stamped my images from Lawn Fawn’s “Winter Skies” set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured them using my alcohol markers. I fussy cut them out and added some highlights with a white gel pen. To ground my images I cut a panel the same size as my background from black card stock, and cut a simple hill shape using my scissors before adhering everything in to place.

I cut a larger panel from white card stock using the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to frame my smaller panel and stamped it with fireworks using Iced Spruce Distress Oxide Ink. I used my powder tool on the black hill piece of my card, stamped my sentiment from Neat and Tangled’s “Beavers Eh” stamp set, heat embossed it with white embossing powder and adhered everything to my card base!

Thanks for reading lovelies! I definitely love how well these two sets work together! I feel like this would be a great idea for New Year cards too!

Simple Halloween Card Using Simon Says Stamp “If The Hat Fits”!

Hey lovelies!
Back to the Halloween cards today! Now I know not a lot of people have hours and hours to spend making their cards for every occasion, so today I thought I’d share a really simple way of making cute cards fast! The “If The Hat Fits” set from Simon Says Stamp is a really amazing set to achieve simple but fun cards, the hat images are a great size for a focal point and the larger sentiments compliment them perfectly!
1.jpg
I had previously stamped out this set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink as I knew I wanted to use it for this year’s Halloween cards. I did some quick colouring using my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and added details/highlights with my white gelly roll pen.
Spectrum Noir markers used:
Hat: LG5, LG3, LG2
Ribbon: CR7, OR2, FS9
2.jpg
I fussy cut out my image, I used my craft knife to cut the little piece between the bend of the hat and the ribbon. I cut down a panel for my card and blended in a circular motion towards the bottom left using Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide ink (I just love how greens and yellows compliment each other!), sprayed it with my distress sprayer before cleaning up any excess water with a paper towel. I splattered my panel with black watercolour paint and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide ink using a paintbrush and some water then allowed it to completely dry. Once it was dry I prepped my panel with my EK Success powder tool, I stamped my sentiment at a slight angle using Versafine Onyx Black ink, coated it in clear embossing powder and set with my heat tool. I stamped a couple of the stars from the set with Versafine ink to draw attention to my sentiment. I adhered the hat to my panel using double sided foam tape to add some dimension. Finally I framed my panel using black card stock and adhered to my card base using double sided score tape!

Hooray! All Yeti Another Year Older? Birthday Shaker Using Craftin Desert Divas Products!

Hey lovelies!
It was my best friend in the world Kit’s birthday last month (you should go check out her blog if you’re a Disney or cosplay lover), so of course I had to whip up a shaker especially for her! We don’t live close to each other, which means we don’t get to see each other nearly enough. For most of us in the crafting community sending our handmade cards/gifts is our way of showing love to those we’re closest to!
We’re more like sisters than friends, and our sense of humour definitely reflects that. So I just had to use these cute images with the cheekiness of the “all yeti another year older?” sentiment as a little reminder to her that we’re growing older together!
1
I stamped these cute yetis from Craftin Desert Divas “Yeti To Party” set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, coloured them using my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and fussy cut them out. I added some rosy cheeks with a pink pencil and details with my white gelly roll pen.
Spectrum Noir markers used:
Yeti: IB1 (face and legs) BG3 & GG1 (horns) GT1 (nails) GG1 (shading on fur)
Presents: CR2, FS8, GB1, LY1, LG1 & LG2
2.jpg3.jpg
I cut a panel from heavy weight white card stock using the Crazy Stitched Frame dies, and cut a window out using the Inside Scalloped Circle dies both from Craftin Desert Divas. I removed the scalloped frame part of the window as I just wanted a simple circle this time. I cut another panel of white card and blended it with Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide ink for the background of my window before spraying it with my distress sprayer and drying up the excess water with a paper towel.
4
I took a piece of scrap card stock I had leftover from a previous project big enough for the sentiment die. I blended Broken China and Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide inks to create an ombre effect, I distressed it using my distress sprayer and mopped up the excess water. I took the “Hooray” sentiment die from the Torn Paper dies by Craftin Desert Divas and ran it through my die cutting machine.
5.jpg
I adhered my die cut sentiment using Ranger Multi Medium Matte adhesive and set a stamping block on top until it was completely dry. I stamped “All YETI another year older?” below my die cut sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black ink. After backing my window with acetate I adhered my yetis to the acetate (slotted just under the bottom of my window) using some double sided score tape and got ready to create my shaker panel.
6.jpg
I used double sided foam tape to surround the back of my window and backed the rest of my panel with it too. I used my EK Success powder tool around the edges of the foam tape on the inside section of my circle, I feel this helps the sequins move around easier! I used Pastel Paradise and True Love sequins from Craftin Desert Divas to fill my shaker, removed the backing from my foam tape and adhered my ink blended background panel to seal it all in. I backed my panel with double sided score tape and adhered to my card base!

Halloween Card Using Leftover Supplies from Love From Lizi 2017 Card Kit!

Hey lovelies!
My crafty friends who know me, know I LOVE to hoard Halloween supplies. Some things are just too pretty to use! I’ve made it my mission this year to use all the things that I’ve been hoarding for quite some time now, some of those supplies come from the Love From Lizi Halloween card kit from last year! I couldn’t bring myself to use most of the pretty papers and bits and bobs last year, so here is the first of the cards I’ve made with what I have left over!
1.jpg
I cut down two white panels one for my base and the other to ink smoosh and stamp. I ink smooshed my smaller panel with Twisted Citron and a little bit of Evergreen Bough Distress Oxide ink, drying between layers. Once it was completely dry I splattered some of the Evergreen Bough ink on to my ink smooshed panel and my white panel with a paint brush, I also splattered some black watercolour paint on my white panel. I stamped my skulls from the Love from Lizi “Punny Bones” set in a pattern using Versafine Onyx Black ink. I ran it through my die cutting machine with the largest of my Inside Scalloped Octagon dies from Craftin Desert Divas and removed the inside piece to use on my card. I ran the same die through once more using black card stock to create my frame.
2
I cut a piece of the green and black patterned paper in to a large ribbon to go down the left side of my card and adhered everything in to place using double sided score tape.
3.jpg
I trimmed the top off of the Octagon using my paper trimmer. I prepped a thin strip of black card stock with my EK Success powder tool and stamped my sentiment from Newton’s Nook’s “Boo-tiful Night” stamp set in Versamark ink, coated it in white embossing powder and set with my heat tool. I used my scissors to create a fish tail at the end of my sentiment banner and popped it up on my panel using double sided foam tape. I cut a panel from the patterned paper slightly larger than my base panel of my card and adhered both to my card base using double sided score tape. I finished up by framing my sentiment with some Ebony Black Nuvo drops.

Simple Halloween Card Using Lawn Fawn “Trick or Treat” set!

Hey lovelies!
I’ve been digging through my craft supplies and pulling out everything fall/Halloween related! If you know me, you know I love a good small stamp that I can make quick and easy backgrounds with! These candy corn from Lawn Fawn are no exception to that – look at their cute little faces! I couldn’t resist making a simple card using them!
1
I trimmed down a panel from white card stock and stamped my candy corn in a random pattern all over using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I usually do these backgrounds with watercolour but I love how vivid my Spectrum Noir pens make the candy corn in this case!
23.jpg
When colouring I usually work from darkest to lightest:
Orange section: CR7 -> OR3 -> OR2
Yellow section: GB4 -> GB3 -> LY1
4.jpg
I added shadows using my GG1 Spectrum Noir marker, and highlights with my white gelly roll pen. I love adding these little details as I feel like it makes them stand out more!
5.jpg
I used the smallest of my Inside Scalloped Circle dies and cut it from white card stock, removing the middle piece that I would be using for my sentiment. I blended Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide ink on to my sentiment piece, before blending some Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxide ink around the edges for some dimension. I dried the ink with my heat tool and prepped with my EK Success powder tool applicator. I stamped my sentiment from Newton’s Nook’s “Boo-tiful Night” set using Versafine Onyx Black ink, coated it in clear embossing powder and set it with my heat tool. I picked out some orange ribbon and backed it with double sided score tape, I adhered that directly to my panel and popped my sentiment up with some foam tape. I backed my panel with double sided score tape and adhered to my card base!

Craftin Desert Divas August Release – Sneak Peek Day 3!

Hey lovelies!
It’s day 3 of Craftin Desert Divas’ August release sneak peek week! Today there is a whole lotta cuteness being showcased for your inspiration, so be sure to head over to the Craftin Desert Divas blog post to see what the other DT members have created for you!
Today I’m showcasing the Dam Shame set with this sweet little beaver and bug!
1.jpg
I started by cutting a panel from white card stock using the Torn Paper Dies, I blended over the polygon stencil using Broken China and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide ink having them overlap in the middle to create the green shade. I lightly sprayed my panel with my Distress Sprayer bottle to give it a distressed look and dried the excess water droplets with a paper towel. I put down some of the Broken China Distress Oxide ink on a stamping block, mixed with a little water and splattered over the surface too for an extra layer before setting it aside to dry.
2.jpg
I stamped out my cute little beaver and bug using Memento Tuxedo Black ink before moving on to colouring with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.
3.jpg
I used TN5, TN3, TN1, GB2 & GB1 for the beaver’s fur. I used a combination of BG5, TN5 & TN3 for his tail and I filled his nose in with IG5. I used TN5 & TN3 for the twigs, along with LG5 & LG3 for the leaves. For his glasses I blended DR2 & CR7 and finished him up with a little GG1 to shade his eyes and just under his top lip before adding my highlights using my white gelly roll pen. I coloured the body of the bug with GB4 & LY1 and the wings with GT1 & IB1 and added a few small highlights along the top of his head and wings.
4.jpg
I cut a panel using white card stock and used the large Torn Paper die to cut a window so I could inlay my ink blended panel. I prepped my panel with my powder tool applicator before stamping my sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black ink, coated it in clear embossing powder and set it with my heat tool. I fussy cut my characters out and popped them up with some foam tape to the left of my sentiment.
5.jpg
I adhered my panel to my card base using some foam tape and added some glow in the dark Nuvo drops in the shade Blue Crush to finish my card, leaving them to set for a full 24 hours in a safe space.
Dam Shame 1 August 2018.jpg
Thank you for stopping by lovelies! This set is just too cute I can’t wait for you to see it all! Remember to head to the August release event on facebook and click “going” if you haven’t already!

Smiles Across The Miles – Craftin Desert Divas Creative Challenge!

Hey lovelies!
It’s time for another Designer Creative Challenge from Craftin Desert Divas! This time we’re all about sharing the love and sending those smiles across the miles! This is something I like to do often, growing up cards have always held a sentimental value to myself and my family members so I cherish each and every card I receive! Whether you’re sending someone a note to encourage or support them, or even just to say hi! Handmade cards can make a huge impact on those you care about, knowing somebody has taken the time to sit and create something unique just for you really is a special feeling! Today I’m sharing with you a card I made using the ‘Kindness’ and ‘Wishful Thoughts’ stamp sets as I really love using florals for these types of cards!

1.jpg
I started by prepping some watercolour paper with my EK Success powder tool applicator. I stamped my floral image using Versafine Onyx Black ink, coated it in clear embossing powder and set it using my heat tool.
2.jpg
I painted my image using watercolour paints then fussy cut it out once it was dry. I went for a super colourful look, after all we want to brighten someone’s day!
3.jpg
I cut a panel using the Crazy Stitched Frame dies from heavy weight white card before stamping some of the smaller images from the Kindness set in a random pattern using Iced Spruce Distress Oxide Ink to give it a softer look. I cut down a rectangle piece of white card and stamped my sentiment from the Wishful Thoughts set in Versafine Onyx Black ink. I drew little dashes along the border of the rectangle using my ruler and a black pen to add a little extra detail. I positioned my flowers and sentiment towards the centre of my panel and popped them up with some double sided foam tape. I adhered my entire panel to my card base using some double sided tape to finish!

Thank you for stopping by lovelies! ‘Just because’ cards are among my favourite cards to make, I’m sure I’m going to get a lot of use out of this stamp set in the future too! I hope you like what I’ve created to show you today, please be sure to stop by the Craftin Desert Divas’ blog post to see what the other DT members have created for inspiration!

Birthday Card Using Die Cuts – CDD Party Dies!

Hey lovelies! ❤
Today I’m sharing the card I made for my dad’s birthday which was just last week! I think sometimes I rely so heavily on stamped images that I forget you don’t always need them to make a fun card! So I decided for this card the main focus would be using dies and ink blending, only using stamps for my sentiment!
CDD Birthday Die Cut July 2018
1.jpg2.jpg
I started by die cutting out all of the balloons and their strings from heavyweight white card stock. Once I had the pieces I needed, I used Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed and Peacock Feathers distress inks to colour my balloons. I ink blended heavily towards the bottom of the balloons and faded it to a lighter coverage towards the top to give them some dimension. For the yellow balloons I added a little Spiced Marmalade distress ink to the bottom of them to give a little more contrast. Once they were all coloured I distressed them using my Distress Sprayer.
3.jpg4.jpg
I used a stencil to blend some Peacock Feathers distress ink on to white card, before cutting out the gift box from it. I adhered the balloons, strings and box all together using some washi tape on the back of them and my glue roller.
5.jpg6.jpg
I took the scrap piece of card where I had cut the box die from, and blended on to the other side using Mustard Seed distress ink before cutting out the ribbon pieces and the bow using the dies. Once I had die cut all my pieces, I lightly blended over the edges using some Spiced Marmalade distress ink to give them some dimension and adhered them to my gift box using my glue roller.
7.jpg8.jpg9.jpg
I then die cut a panel using the largest of the Crazy Stitched Frame Dies and blended some Salty Ocean distress ink on to it, keeping it darkest towards the edges and lighter towards the inside. I proceeded to put some Peacock Feathers distress ink on my stamp block, dilute it with water and splatter on to my panel. I dried it using my heat tool, then prepped my panel and a white strip of card with my powder tool so embossing powder would only stick to where I stamped my sentiment. I stamped my sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black ink and coated it with clear embossing powder before setting it with my heat tool.
I adhered my white strip with the second half of my sentiment on to my card using my glue roller and trimmed off the excess, before adhering my balloons to the left of the sentiment using foam tape. I finished up by backing the entire panel with foam tape and adhering it to my card base.
CDD Birthday Die Cut July 2018 2

Thanks for reading lovelies! ❤ What do you use most for making your cards? I think this has definitely inspired me to use dies more often for the focal point of my card. There are lots of amazing dies that can be used this way on the Craftin Desert Divas shop and I can’t wait to play with more of them!

Friendship Card using CDD Brighter Days!

Hey lovelies! ❤
Today I’m sharing another card using the new Brighter Days set from Craftin Desert Divas! This time using the little lamb from the set as she was too cute I couldn’t wait to colour her!
CDD Brighter Days Sneak Peak July 18.jpg
I stamped my image using Ranger Archival Jet Black ink on to some watercolour paper, I then watercoloured my image to achieve the soft look she has before using my white pen to add some polkadot details to the pink areas of her clothing and accessories. After fussy cutting out my image I cut two panels out using the Crazy Stitched Frame Dies from heavyweight white card stock, and cut across one of them towards the bottom using a die from the Shake It Up Dies to create the grass area. On my larger panel I stamped the small butterfly and created a mask for it using a post it note. I ink blended the panel using salty ocean distress ink to create my sky, before spraying it with water using my distress sprayer bottle, I picked up the excess water with some tissue and set it aside to dry. Once it was dry I removed my mask and lightly watercoloured the butterfly taking care not to apply too much water to avoid the paper pilling. To create my grass area I ink blended on to the second panel using mowed lawn distress ink. I adhered my panels together using double sided score tape before adhering the little lamb using some foam tape. I prepped some white card with my powder tool before stamping my sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black ink, coated it in clear embossing powder and set it with my heat tool. I cut my sentiment in to a thin banner shape and adhered it to my panel using my glue roller. I die cut the largest of the Crazy Stitched Frame Dies from white card stock and adhered my front panel to the centre using double sided foam tape, before I used my double sided score tape to adhere it to my card base.

What do you think? This was a relatively quick and easy card and I love how the soft colours look on this cutie! If you haven’t checked out the new release yet be sure to head over to the Craftin Desert Divas shop! You don’t wanna miss out! ❤
