Masculine Birthday Card Using Honey Bee Stamps’ “Music Speaks” Stamp Set!

Hello lovelies!
If you know me you know how much I love music and music themed stamp sets are no different! Someone who shares this passion is my wonderful dad, so this week I thought I’d share the card I’ve made for his birthday this year with you! I fell in love with all the different instruments in Honey Bee Stamps’ “Music Speaks” stamp set the minute I saw them and knew I had to have this one!
12
I cut two panels using the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts (one from white card stock and the other from black) and ink blended over them with Heffy Doodle’s “Brick By Brick” stencil using Iced Spruce Distress Oxide Ink. I distressed the white panel with my distress sprayer and cut a window from it using Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts once again. I used my Misti stamping tool to stamp my images using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink and coloured them with my alcohol markers. I used a white gel pen to add highlights and details to my images before fussy cutting them out.

I secured a small strip of white card stock in my Misti and stamped my sentiment from Avery Elle’s “Peek-A-Boo Scary Pals” stamp set with Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink and trimmed the ends to make my sentiment banner.
35.jpg
I popped my white and grey brick frame up on my black panel using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I adhered my images together using Scor-Tape before popping them up also. For the sentiment strip I doubled up my foam tape so it pops up slightly further, popped it in place and adhered my panel to my card base.

Birthday Card Using Waffle Flower’s “We Herd” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
This week I’m sharing another birthday card with you, this time using Waffle Flower’s “We Herd” stamp set!
12
I started by stamping out the group of rabbits in my Misti stamping tool using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink and colouring them with my alcohol markers. I used a white gel pen to add highlights and details before fussy cutting them out. I used Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut three panels from white card stock, two of the second largest size and one of the largest. I cut a section from the middle of one of the smaller panels. I stamped the top and bottom sections with the confetti stamps using Iced Spruce Distress Oxide Ink.
43
I took the bottom section and secured it in my Misti, stamping my sentiment on to it using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink once again. I blended the middle section of the smaller panel with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink and the edges of the larger panel with Broken China Distress Oxide Ink.
56
I adhered my two sections and the bunnies tucked in to the bottom with Scor-Tape. I adhered this to my larger panel and on to my card base.

Birthday Card Using Avery Elle’s “Peek-A-Boo Scary Pals” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
I’m still working on building my birthday card stash back up at the moment and wanted to share this card I made using the adorable “Peek-A-Boo Scary Pals” stamp set from Avery Elle! I only used the dinosaur character for this card but there are plenty to choose from!
12.jpg
I started by cutting two panels from white card stock using Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts, I cut a small window in my smaller panel using Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” Honey Cuts. I stamped my images with Gina K Amalgam Jet Black ink using my Misti stamping tool. I coloured them with my alcohol markers, added details and highlights with a white gel pen before fussy cutting them out.
3
I used the balloon stamp from the set to stamp all over my larger panel in a random pattern using Gina K Amalgam Jet Black ink again. I coloured them with my alcohol markers and added details using a white gel pen.
45
I ink blended a panel big enough to fit behind my window using Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Ink and sprayed it with my Distress Sprayer. After I cleaned up the excess water I adhered it to the back of my panel using Scor-Tape, before popping my dino in place and adhering my images with Scor-Tape also. I adhered my smaller panel to the centre of my patterned one using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape, adhered my panel to my card and added some orange Nuvo drops for embellishment.

Celebration Card Using Waffle Flower’s “Tiny Terrarium” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
Today I’m sharing a celebration card using the “Tiny Terrarium” stamp set from Waffle Flower! I love the image from this set and knew I wanted to keep the rest of the card simple to let it really shine on it’s own.
12
I used my Misti stamping tool to stamp my image using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink and coloured it using my alcohol markers. I added some white highlights and details with a gel pen and fussy cut it out. I cut a panel from white card stock using the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and cut a window in the centre using Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Polygons” Honey Cuts.
34
I cut another panel using the “Basic Rectangles” and ink blended on to it with Broken China and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Inks. I distressed it with my distress sprayer, let it sit for a moment before cleaning up the excess water. I adhered my window panel and backing panel together using Scor-Tape.
56
I secured my panel in my Misti to stamp my sentiment using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I adhered my image in the centre of the polygon window using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape before adhering my panel to my card base.

Birthday Card Using Mama Elephant’s “Big News” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
Today I’m sharing a birthday card using the adorable “Big News” stamp set from Mama Elephant! I love that this set comes with so many sentiments so it can be used for all different occasions!
12
I used my Misti stamping tool to stamp my images using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink and coloured them with my alcohol markers. I added some highlights and details with a white gel pen before fussy cutting them out.
4
I used the “Watercolor Stripes” stencil from Altenew with Broken China and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Inks to create what is going to be the background of my panel. I distressed my panel using my distress sprayer and splattered it with Pine Needles Distress Oxide Ink.
75
I used the Mama Elephant “Framed Tags Waverly” Creative Cuts to create a window from white card stock and trimmed down my background to fit behind it. I adhered the two together using Scor-Tape.
6.jpg
I adhered my balloons flat to my background with Scor-Tape and my characters with 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape to give some dimension. Once everything was in place I adhered my panel to my card base with Scor-Tape.

Encouragement Card Using Pink Fresh Studio’s “Word Series: Dream” Stamp Set!

Hello lovelies!
I’m back this week with a relatively simple encouragement card using Pink Fresh Studio’s “Word Series: Dream” stamp set! I’ve always been called a dreamer and I’m typically drawn to the night sky, particularly the moon so when I saw this set I knew I’d get a lot of use from it straight away!
12
I cut a panel from white card stock using the second largest die from Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and used Black Soot Distress Ink with some water to paint my panel. You could easily just use some black card stock for the base but I liked the added texture it gave my background! I used a combination of sponges and brushes to layer Dusty Concord and Broken China Distress Oxide Inks on different parts of my panel to give the look of a galaxy/night sky. I splattered it with white metallic watercolour paint and left it to dry for a moment while I cleaned up.
345
Once my splattering was dry I secured my panel in to my Misti and used my powder tool applicator so embossing powder would only stick to where I wanted it to. I used Versamark ink to stamp my sentiments, coated them in Lawn Fawn’s White embossing powder and set them with my heat tool. I decided to paint the moon and clouds with metallic watercolour paints to make them pop against the background a little more.
678
I used the largest of the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut a panel from black card stock and adhered my other panel to it’s centre before adhering this to my card base using Scor-Tape. I added some Ebony Black Nuvo drops for embellishment and set my card somewhere safe to allow them to dry overnight.

Birthday Shaker Card Using Avery Elle’s “Phonomenal” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
This week I’m sharing a shaker card I made for a friend’s birthday using the Avery Elle “Phonomenal” stamp set! We all know how much I love food stamps by now so these were a must have for me!
12
I stamped my images using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink and coloured them with my alcohol markers. I used a white gel pen to add details and highlights before fussy cutting them all out. I used a craft knife to cut slits between the noodles so I could tuck my ingredients in to place and adhered them using Scor-Tape.
34
I cut two panels from white card stock using the Mama Elephant “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts, in the smaller panel I cut the slots out using one of the dies from Avery Elle’s “Focal Point Stripes” Elle-ments. I took the larger of the panels and a piece of white card stock I cut big enough to cover the back of my window, I blended them both with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink. I distressed these panels with my distress sprayer and cleaned up the excess water.
5
I adhered acetate to the back of my window area with Scor-Tape and used 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape to frame the window to keep the sequins in place. I dusted the inside of the window including the edges of the foam tape with my powder tool applicator to allow the sequins to move around more freely without getting stuck. I chose some iridescent sequins and hearts to fill my shaker and adhered the panel I prepared earlier to trap them inside.
67.jpg
I secured a strip of white card stock in my Misti stamping tool and stamped my sentiment using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink and trimmed it in to a banner shape.
8.jpg
I adhered my panels together using Scor-Tape, also adhering my images flat to my window panel with it. I popped up my sentiment across the bowl using foam tape before adhering everything to my card base with Scor-Tape.

Thanks for reading lovelies! I won’t be here next week with another card as I’ll be spending time travelling around Scotland to gigs and spending time with my family, but I’ll be back again on May 12th! See you then!

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.

Simple Friendship Card Using Concord & 9th’s “Feathered” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
This week I’m sharing a quick and simple friendship card because sometimes we need need something quick and easy on hand to brighten someone’s day! The “Feathered” stamp set from Concord & 9th is so versatile and perfect for this!
1
I cut a panel down from white card stock using the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts from Mama Elephant. I used Gina K’s Amalgam “Jet Black” ink to stamp one of the feather images in a pattern all over my panel. I used my Misti stamping tool to hold my panel in place while I stamped my pattern.
2.jpg
While I was waiting on the ink drying on my panel I prepped some black card stock with my powder tool applicator and stamped my sentiment in Versamark ink, coated it in gold embossing powder and set it with my heat tool. Once the embossing powder had cooled I trimmed my sentiment down in to a strip to go across my panel.
3.jpg
Now that the ink on my patterned panel was dry I splattered it with two shades of gold metallic watercolour paint to add a little extra texture.
45.jpg
I used Scor-Tape to adhere my sentiment across my panel once my splattered paint was dry. I mounted my patterned panel on to a black panel I had cut down using the largest of the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and adhered them to my card base using Scor-Tape.

Birthday Card Using Lawn Fawn’s “Be Hap-Pea” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
I’m back this week with another birthday card, I find it handy to always have a couple stashed away in case I forget or I’m too busy to sit down and create one week! This time I’m using the adorable “Be Hap-Pea” stamp set from Lawn Fawn, I love a good punny set!
5
I stamped a couple of the peas out and one of the pods using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, I used some of the adorable faces that come with the set to give them different expressions! As I planned for this to be a birthday card I made sure to stamp one wearing a party hat too. I coloured them using my alcohol markers and added some highlights and details with a white gel pen before fussy cutting them all out. I used a craft knife to cut along the middle line of the pea pod so I could adhere three of my peas inside it using Scor-Tape.
12.jpg4
I cut all of my panels from heavy weight white card stock, I used the largest of the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts from Mama Elephant for my background panel. For my focal point on my card I used the smaller scalloped die from the “Framed Tags” Waverly Creative Cuts from Mama Elephant and used one of the circle dies from Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” Honey Cuts to create the window. I used the leaf stamp from the set to stamp leaves all over my background panel with Memento Tuxedo Black ink again, coloured them with my alcohol markers and used a white gel pen to add highlights.
36
I used my Misti stamping tool to keep my scalloped panel in place and used my powder tool applicator to prep my panel. I used Versafine Onyx Black ink to stamp my sentiment, removing it from my Misti before coating it in clear embossing powder and setting the powder with my heat tool. I cut another scalloped panel from white card stock and blended it with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Ink, sprayed it with my Distress Sprayer and cleaned up the excess water. I adhered the yellow panel behind my windowed panel using Scor-Tape so my window would have the yellow background.
78
I adhered my peas in the pod and the one slightly behind it with Scor-Tape, but decided to pop the one standing on top of the pod up with 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I took my scalloped panel, adhered it to my background panel using foam tape once again so it was slightly raised and adhered to my card base.

Thanks for reading lovelies! Do you always keep a stash of birthday cards at the ready? I have to admit I’ve been pretty poor at keeping a stash myself lately, but I’m slowly building one back up! I’ll see you next week with another card!
