Holiday Shaker Card Using Mama Elephant’s “Snow Friends” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
I have a holiday shaker card to share with you this week, this time using Mama Elephant’s “Snow Friends” stamp set!
12
I cut my panels and window from white card stock using Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts. I cut a hill shape from the panel I had left from cutting my window and shaded it with a grey alcohol marker and blender pen. I cut some acetate down to size and adhered it to the back of my frame using Scor-Tape and adhered my hill panel in to place.
34
I secured some white card stock in my Misti stamping tool and stamped my images using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I coloured them using my alcohol markers, adding highlights and details using a white gel pen. I fussy cut them out and popped them up on my panel using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape.
56
I blended the panel I cut using the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts using Shaded Lilac and Broken China Distress Oxide Inks. I distressed the panel using a paint brush and some water, cleaning up the excess water before also splattering my panel with white metallic paint. I doubled up my 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape on the back of my main panel to allow room for my sequins to move inside my card, I dusted my window and the inside of the foam tape as well as my splattered panel using my powder tool to ensure they wouldn’t cling to any particular spots. I added my sequins and sealed off my shaker with my splattered panel.
7
I stamped my sentiment with Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink using my Misti stamping tool and cut it out using the smallest of Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” Honey Cuts. I popped it up in the top right hand corner using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape again before adhering my panel to my card base.

Three Christmas Cards Using Mama Elephant’s “The Penguin’s Waddle” Stamp Set!

Hello lovelies!
I’m starting to get prepared for Christmas this year to avoid the last minute rush that usually happens late November/early December! If you’re looking for a way to make quick cards that are easy to make multiples of, “The Penguin’s Waddle” stamp set from Mama Elephant is perfect! I have three cards using this set to share with you today!
12
I cut three panels from white card stock using the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts. I used my Misti stamping tool to stamp my penguins on my panels using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink, two vertically and one horizontally. I stamped a copy on some masking paper and carefully trimmed it out and placed my mask over my penguins on one of the vertical panels. I shifted my panel over to the side and stamped my second lot of penguins above my mask to create the fuller panel of penguins. I coloured my horizontal panel and my vertical panel with the most penguins using my alcohol markers, I also coloured the penguins on the second vertical panel but left the top portion of my panel white and fussy cut them out. I added highlights and details using a white gel pen, including some snow on the panels where I coloured the background.
34
I cut another panel from white card stock with the same die as before and blended it with Shaded Lilac and Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Inks. I splattered some water on my panel with a paintbrush and cleaned off the excess to give it the distressed look, this will be my “snow” for this card! Once my ink on the panel was dry I secured it in my Misti and stamped my “Warm Wishes” sentiment from Waffle Flower’s “Fall Greetings” stamp set directly on my panel using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I popped up my penguins I fussy cut earlier at the bottom using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape.
5
I secured my horizontal panel in to my Misti next and stamped my sentiment from Mama Elephant’s “Snow Friends” stamp set also using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink.
6
I secured a strip of black card stock in to my Misti and prepped it with my powder tool applicator. I stamped my sentiment from Mama Elephant’s “Cool Penguin” stamp set using Versamark ink, coated it in Lawn Fawn’s White embossing powder and set it with my heat tool. I trimmed it down to size and used my white gel pen to create the stitched effect around the sides. I popped my sentiment up using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape.
7
I cut three black panels using the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts. I adhered each of my panels to the black panels and to my card bases using Scor-Tape.

Halloween Card Using Honey Bee Stamps’ “The Name’s Jack” Honey Cuts!

Hey lovelies!
This week I’m sharing a simple Halloween card using die cutting, this card would be great for party invitations I think as it would be easy to set up a production line for mass production! I decided on Honey Bee Stamps’ “The Name’s Jack” Honey Cuts for this card as the size of the dies themselves are great to use as a focal point!
1
I started by cutting out the two ghosts from white card stock, I held my chosen facial expressions for them in place with washi tape while I ran them through my machine again. I cut the ghost silhouettes out from black card stock and adhered to the back of my white ghosts so that their expressions were coloured in black!
2
I cut a black circle using Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” Honey Cuts and used the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to trim the straight edges. I used the same die from the “Basic Rectangles” to cut a panel from white card stock and adhered my black curved panel to it using Scor-Tape. I took one of the pumpkin expressions from Honey Bee Stamps’ “The Name’s Jack” Honey Cuts and cut through the top centre of the black section. I used Candied Apple Distress Oxide Ink on some white card stock to back the face to make it look like it was glowing red. I used 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape to pop both of my ghosts up in place as if they were looking at the red face, terrified!
345
I used the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut a panel from black card stock and adhered my panel with my ghosts to it with Scor-Tape. I stamped my sentiment from Lawn Fawn’s “Spooky Village” stamp set with Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink using my Misti stamping tool. I trimmed it down to a banner shape, popped it up on my card using foam tape and adhered my entire panel to my card base.

Autumnal Themed Card Using Lawn Fawn’s “Outside-In Stitched Pumpkin” Dies!

Hello lovelies!
I’m back after a short break last week with an autumnal card using the Outside-In Stitched Pumpkin dies from Lawn Fawn!
125
I cut my pieces from white card stock except for the face, which I cut from black card stock. I decided not to use the face as my card went in a different direction. I used Carved Pumpkin and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Inks to colour my pumpkin and the stem, and coloured the tendril with green alcohol markers. I adhered my stem and tendril to the back of my pumpkin with Scor-Tape. I used my Misti stamping tool to stamp my sentiment from Lawn Fawn’s “Spooky Village” stamp set on white card stock, using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I trimmed my sentiment strip down to size, cut the ends to create a banner shape and adhered it across my pumpkin using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape.
34
I was particularly fond of these leaves once I had created them and could definitely see myself making more like these for future autumnal cards! I used Fired Brick, Fossilized Amber and a little tiny bit of Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Inks and laid them down on my glass crafting mat. I sprayed them with a little bit of water and placed my white card stock down on it repeatedly, drying between layers until I was happy with the outcome. I splattered it with some metallic gold watercolour paint to give it some more texture and shimmer before using the leaf die to cut as many as I could from the panel.
67
I used the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut a black panel and the second largest to cut a white panel. I blended Squeezed Lemonade and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide Inks on to my white panel, only using the Fossilized Amber around the edges. I used my Distress Sprayer to distress my panel and splattered with gold metallic watercolour paint.
89
I started to adhered my leaves to my pumpkin flat with Scor-Tape, building across the way as I went. I popped my pumpkin and leaves up on my yellow panel with 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam tape and adhered my yellow panel to my black panel with Scor-Tape. I decided at the last minute to add two leaves under my pumpkin, one at each side with Scor-Tape as I felt it framed the pumpkin better and adhered my panel to my card base.

Simple Card Using Concord & 9th’s “Autumn Harvest” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
It’s my favourite time of year! Crafting in Autumn and Winter just has a cozy feeling about it, wouldn’t you agree? This “Autumn Harvest” stamp set from Concord & 9th was the perfect set to ease me in to it this year!
1
I used my Misti stamping tool to stamp out the entire set with Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink and coloured my images using my alcohol markers. I’m only using the pumpkin and acorn for this card, I added white details with a gel pen and fussy cut them out.
23
I used the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut a panel from black card stock and the second largest to cut a panel from kraft card stock. I splattered my kraft panel with some gold metallic paint to add texture and set aside to dry. I secured a strip of black card stock in my Misti and prepared it with my powder tool. I stamped my sentiment from Altenew’s “Coffee With A Splash” stamp set using Versamark ink, coated it in Lawn Fawn’s White embossing powder and set with my heat tool. I trimmed it down to size.
4
I wrapped some natural jute twine around my kraft panel near the bottom and adhered my images and sentiment with 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I popped up my kraft panel on my black panel with foam tape also but used Scor-Tape to adhere everything to my card base.

Simple Just Because Card Using Lawn Fawn’s “Keep On Swimming” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
This week I’m back with another just because card using Lawn Fawn’s “Keep On Swimming” stamp set!
1
The images in this set are adorable, I was immediately drawn to the pufferfish! I stamped my images using my Misti stamping tool and Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I used my alcohol markers to colour them but for the water in the fish bowl I used a combination of Broken China and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Inks. I added details with a white gel pen and fussy cut them out.
2.jpg
I cut a panel from white card stock using the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative cuts and used Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” Honey cuts to cut a window to the left of my panel.
3
I used the second largest from the “Basic Rectangles” to cut another white panel, I blended over it with Squeezed Lemonade and Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxide Inks using the Altenew “Watercolor Stripes” stencil. I cut a black panel from the largest of the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to frame my card.
4
I used my Misti to stamp my sentiment on white card stock using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink, trimmed it down to size and framed it with black card stock also to make it pop from my white panel. I adhered my white, striped and black panels together using Scor-Tape. I adhered my images with Scor-Tape also, apart from my pufferfish and sentiment strip which I adhered with 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I adhered my panel flat to my card base and embellished with some blue Nuvo drops.

Just Because Card Using Mama Elephant’s “Little Panda Agenda” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
I’m a little late with my post this week, my apologies! However I’m here today to share this card using Mama Elephant’s “Little Panda Agenda” stamp set with you all!
1.jpg2.jpg
I used my Misti stamping tool to stamp out the entire set of adorable pandas using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I coloured them with my alcohol markers, added some highlights and details using a white gel pen and fussy cut them out. I cut two panels from white card stock using Mama Elephant’s “Framed Tags Waverly” Creative Cuts and used Heffy Doodle’s “UnbeLEAFable” stencil to ink blend my larger panel with Pine Needles Distress Oxide Ink. I splattered my larger panel with gold metallic watercolour paint and set it aside to dry. I used the window die from Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative cuts to create my window in my smaller panel.
34.jpg
I chose my sentiment from Mama Elephant’s “Dragon Wishes” stamp set and stamped it below my window using my Misti and Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I doubled up my 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape for more height, adhered my smaller panel to my larger panel first then adhered all of my pandas in to place. I used Scor-Tape to adhere my panel to my card base.

Halloween Card Using Mama Elephant’s “Little Boo Agenda” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
I’m a sucker for all things Halloween, it’s my favourite holiday out of them all! So this year I’m getting ready for it a little early with Mama Elephant’s “Little Boo Agenda” stamp set!
23
I used my Misti to stamp out the entire set (twice! I don’t joke around when it comes to Halloween!) 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 and fussy cut them out. I chose the three ghosts I wanted to use for this card and set the rest aside for other projects.
14
I used Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut a panel from white card stock (I also used the largest of these dies to cut a black base panel which you’ll see later) and Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” Honey Cuts to cut out three small circles. I stamped one of the small candies from the set in a random pattern on each of the circles with Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink and coloured them purple and green with my alcohol markers.
67
I splattered my white panel using Twisted Citron, Dusty Concord and Black Soot Distress Oxide Inks. Once the panel was dry I used a smaller die from Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut out the centre of my splattered panel and a white panel. I adhered my splattered frame on to my black panel and inlaid my white panel using Scor-Tape. I placed my three circles down the centre to guide where I wanted my sentiments to be each time and used my Misti to stamp them one by one.
58
I popped each ghost up on the circles using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape, I also used the foam tape to place my circles down the centre of my panel and adhered my panel to my card base using Scor-Tape.

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.
4.jpg
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.
