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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

Friendship Card Using Mama Elephant’s “Heart In Bloom” Stamp Set! (With Matching Tags!)

Hello lovelies, Happy New Year!
I hope you’ve all had a fantastic time over the holidays and you’re settling in to 2019 quite nicely, today I wanted to share a friendship card and some matching tags I’ve made using the Mama Elephant “Heart In Bloom” stamp set! How beautiful is this floral stamp? I’m positively in love with it!
1.jpg2.jpg3.jpg
I started by stamping out the large floral heart with the banner in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colouring it with my alcohol markers, I’m so used to colouring floral stamps with my watercolour paints it was refreshing to have a change! Once I had finished colouring I added some highlights and dotted details with a white gel pen and stamped my sentiment in the banner using Versafine Onyx Black ink. I fussy cut the heart out and moved on to my background.

I cut a panel using the Altenew “Cube Cover” die from white card stock and splattered it with pink metallic watercolour paint. I knew I wanted the colour within the negative space to be neutral as I wanted the floral heart to really pop, so I took Iced Spruce Distress Oxide Ink and smooshed it on my glass craft mat before spraying it with water. I took another panel of white card stock and placed it on the ink on my craft mat repeatedly, drying between layers until I was happy with the outcome. I cut it down to the same size as my die cut panel and adhered them together.

I popped my floral heart up on my panel using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape and adhered it to my card base. I finished my card off with some Bottle Green Nuvo Crystal Drops before leaving it in a safe place for them to dry for 24 hours.
P12 ME Heart In Bloom
For my matching tags I just took some blank tags I had leftover from last Christmas and stamped each of them with the single flower from the set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured them once again using my alcohol markers and used a white gel pen for the highlights. I stamped the flower on some masking paper and cut it out to cover the flower while I splattered each of the tags with Iced Spruce Distress Oxide Ink and pink metallic watercolour paint. I waited for them to dry before stamping my sentiment down the side using Versafine Onyx Black ink and attached a ribbon to the top of each of them. I finished them off with the Bottle Green Nuvo Crystal drops for that extra touch!

Adorable Christmas Card Using Mama Elephant “Yappy Woofmas” Set!

Hey lovelies!
Are you all preparing for Christmas yet? There have been so many amazing sets being released lately it’s hard not to think about the holidays! I couldn’t wait to dive in to this lot of cuties from the Mama Elephant “Yappy Woofmas” set! I have two dogs of my own, meaning I have a serious soft spot when there’s a new set filled with cute dogs!
1.jpg
I stamped my images using Memento Tuxedo black ink and coloured them using my alcohol markers. I ended up only using three of them for this card and set the others aside for a separate project! I added blush to their cheeks with a pink coloured pencil, as well as details and highlights using a white gel pen before fussy cutting them out.
2.jpg
I die cut a panel using the Mama Elephant “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and cut some windows on my panel with the Lawn Fawn “Outside In Stitched Heart Stackables” dies to keep with the stitched theme! Once I was finished with die cutting I splattered some silver and pale gold metallic watercolour paint on my panel, unfortunately this doesn’t show too well in photos but it adds a lovely shimmer to the card when it hits the light!

I used Evergreen Bough Distress Oxide ink and blended it on to some white card stock before spraying it with my distress sprayer. I cut this in to sections to become the backgrounds of the windows in my panel!
4.jpg
I stamped my sentiment from Lawn Fawn’s “Winter Skies” set directly on to my panel using Versafine Onyx Black ink, coated it in clear embossing powder and set with my heat tool. I adhered the backgrounds to the smaller hearts directly against the back of the panel, but added some foam tape for the larger heart to add some depth. I popped my little dogs in place and adhered my panel to my card base!

I Miss You Friendship Card Using Distress Inks!

Hello lovelies! ❤

Sharing another quick and easy card with you today, perfect to send to those you may not see every day!

~Tools and products used will be listed at the end of this blog post!~

I cut a panel from white card stock and picked which distress ink colours I wanted to work with (colours used & links will be listed at the end of this post!). The sun was shining so it only seemed right to go for some red, yellow and pink for that summery feel! I placed the inks directly on to my glass craft mat and sprayed with some water, then smooshed my panel on the surface to pick up the colour remembering to dry between each layer for a textured feel. When I was happy with how  it looked I splattered it with some gold metallic watercolour paint from my Gansai Tambi “Starry Colors” palette and set aside to dry.

I created my card base and top panel using white card stock and rounded the corners with a corner punch. I then cut some black matte paper larger than my top panel and rounded the corners for a cohesive look and adhered to my card base. To finish my top panel I die cut the stitched heart window with Lawn Fawn’s Outside In Stitched Heart stackable dies.

For my sentiment I decided to go with the “I Miss You” stamp from Simon Says Stamp “Seeing Stars”. I treated some black card stock with my EK Success powder tool, stamped my sentiment in Versamark ink and heat embossed it with Altenew Pure White embossing powder. I cut it down in to a thin sentiment strip and adhered it across the back of my stitched heart using my regular tape runner.

To finish the card I backed the stitched heart panel with foam tape and adhered it to the ink smooshed panel, then adhered it to my card base using my regular tape runner.
