Sprinkled With Love Card Using Some Odd Girl “Sweet & Salty”!

Hey lovelies! ❤ I’m back with another card using the Sweet & Salty stamp set from Some Odd Girl, I personally love this stamp set as the images are such a great size for a focal image! The weather has been heating up more and more lately as summer creeps in, what more perfect time for ice cream?!

I created my card base using heavyweight white card stock, and cut a panel of patterned paper from the Pink and Main “Be Brave” 6×6 paper pack to be slightly smaller than my card base. I chose the colourful triangle paper because it reminded me of bunting used for summer parties, how appropriate! I cut some strips from white card stock, I prepped one of the strips with my EK Success Powder tool so the embossing powder would only stick to the area I stamped. I stamped my sentiment “Sprinkled With Love” in Versafine onyx black ink, coated it in Papermania clear embossing powder and set with my heat tool. I then adhered the strips across the patterned paper using double sided foam tape, being careful to line them up with the edges of the patterned paper.

I stamped my ice cream cone images using Ranger Archival jet black ink as I planned to watercolour them this time around. My favourite flavour of ice cream is mint, so I felt I had to put that front and centre! I decided to go with chocolate and vanilla for the other two so they weren’t all competing too much on the card. Once they were dry I fussy cut them out by hand and adhered them together first using my regular tape runner, then adhered them beside my sentiment on my card!

Thank you for reading lovelies! ❤ This was such a quick card to make, probably one of my quickest! I love how simple yet colourful it is at the same time, and I think it’s perfect to send to a loved one in summer! What’s your favourite flavour of ice cream?!

Simple Anniversary Card Using Simon Says Stamp “Seeing Stars”!

Hello lovelies! ❤

Today marks 8 years since my fiancé and I started dating, so I thought today I’d share the card I made for our anniversary with you! Hubby to be is a lil obsessed with stars, so I thought it was fitting to use Simon Says Stamp’s – Seeing Stars stamp set! I’ve been meaning to use this set for a while, I was just waiting for inspiration to hit!

I started by creating my card base and adhering a black matte paper on top, I knew I wanted to mimic a night sky effect with this card (for obvious reasons!) so I felt like the black would tie everything in nicely. I cut my panel down to size and picked out the three distress ink colours I was planning to use (colours and links at the end of this blog post!). I blended the darker colours mostly towards the outside, making sure to switch between colours and overlapping my blending to make the result as smooth as I wanted it to be. I distressed the panel with some water and dried the water spots with a paper towel. I then splattered my panel with Gansai Tambi “Starry Colors” metallic watercolour paints before leaving to air dry.

While that was air drying I moved on to my sentiment, I treated the black card stock with my EK Success powder tool so the embossing powder wouldn’t stick to anywhere I didn’t want it. I stamped my sentiment “When we’re together, I see stars” with Tsukineko Versamark ink and coated it in Papermania Gold embossing powder then set it with my heat tool. I used a circle die to cut out my sentiment using my Big Shot machine.

By this time my panel was dry! Once again using my powder tool I coated my entire panel. I stamped my stars and constellations randomly all over using Versamark ink and the same gold embossing powder as before, once heat set all that was left to do was put the card together! I wrapped two pieces of twine around my panel (adhering them to the back with some washi tape!) and adhered my sentiment circle on top using foam tape. I then backed the entire panel in foam tape and adhered to the card base, to finish I adhered tiny gems to my card using Ranger Multi Medium Matte adhesive to give that extra little bit of sparkle!
