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.

Just Because Card Using Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Daffodil Stamp Set!

Hello lovelies!
I have a simple card to share with you this week using the Altenew: Paint-A-Flower: Daffodil stamp set!
1
I stamped my images on watercolour paper using my Misti stamping tool and Gina K Amalgam Jet Black ink. I painted my images using the Altenew Watercolor 36 Pan Set, once they were dry I added some highlights with a white gel pen and fussy cut them out.
23
I used the Waffle Flower “Nesting Postage” dies to cut out two small panels from Neenah Classic Crest card stock. I used Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink and the “Life Changing Blender Brushes” from Picket Fence Studios to blend ink on to the larger panel and distressed it with some water. I stamped my sentiment on the smaller white panel using Gina K Amalgam Jet Black ink and adhered both panels together using Scor-Tape. I used 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape to pop my image up at the bottom.
456
I cut a panel from black card stock and white card stock using Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and splattered the white panel with metallic gold watercolour paint. Once my splatter had dried I adhered both panels together using Scor-Tape, popped my image panel up using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape and adhered my 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.

Birthday Card Using MFTS Stamps “Picture Perfect Party Animals” Stamp Set!

Hello crafty friends!
It’s been a while since I’ve posted or had the chance to craft, so I’m happy to be back! How have you all been? I hope you’re all well!
I’m jumping back in this week with a birthday card made with MFT stamps, the “Picture Perfect Party Animals” stamp set is adorable, I couldn’t resist these parrots being the crazy bird lady I am!
1
I secured some white Neenah card stock in my Misti stamping tool and stamped the parrot image using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I coloured the image using alcohol markers, adding highlights with a white gel pen and some markings around the parrots’ eyes using a pencil. I used my trimmer to trim out the box for crisp straight lines.
2
I cut a panel from white card stock using the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and used the largest from the die set to cut a panel from black card stock. I cut a third panel using Waffle Flower’s “Nesting Postage” die set. I used the Heffy Doodle “UnbeLEAFable” stencil with Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Inks to create my patterned panel, which I finished up with some metallic paint splatter. I blended my white rectangle panel with the same two inks I used for my patterned panel, I used the Picket Fence Studio “Life Changing” Blender Brushes for all of my blending. I adhered my black and smooth blended panels together using Scor-Tape, popped up my patterned panel in the centre using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape and popped up my image also.
34
For my sentiment I took a piece of card stock I had left over from cutting my panels out earlier, secured it in my Misti and stamped using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black Ink. I adhered it to some black card stock using Scor-Tape and trimmed it down to size so I have a thin border all the way around. I popped it up below my image and adhered my panel to my card base.

Birthday Card Using Lawn Fawn’s “Year Ten” Stamp Set!

Hello lovelies!
This week I’m sharing a birthday card using Lawn Fawn’s “Year Ten” stamp set! I love the cute little cacti and the punny sentiment!
12
I cut a panel from white card stock using the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts. I used the “Candy Store” stencil from Heffy Doodle at an angle on my panel and blended Scattered Straw Distress Oxide Ink over it. I removed the stencil and splattered some water over it with a paintbrush, cleaning up any excess water with a paper towel. I masked off the white portion of my panel with some post-it tape and splattered the stencilled part with green and yellow metallic watercolour paint. Once this was dry I stamped my sentiment using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink and wrapped some natural jute twine around my panel, adhering it on the back.
3
I used my Misti stamping tool to stamp my images on white card stock using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I coloured them using my alcohol markers, stamped the cheeks on one of them using Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink, added highlights and details with a white gel pen and fussy cut them out. I cut a small panel using the “Double Stitched Polygons” Honey Cuts from Honey Bee Stamps and blended it with Scattered Straw and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Ink. I popped both of my images up on the polygon using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape.
45
I adhered my polygon over the twine with 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I cut a black panel using the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to frame my panel and adhered both of my 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.

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.

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.
