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!

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.

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.

Two Cards Using Waffle Flower’s “Office Birthday” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
This week I’m sharing two cards using Waffle Flower’s “Office Birthday” stamp set, both relatively simple to make!
P33 WF Office Birthday 2
I was instantly drawn to these adorable hamsters as soon as I saw this set! I had to make a birthday card using them and decided to go for a more masculine feel, keeping the hamsters as the pop of colour in the corner!
I stamped my images using my Misti stamping platform with Gina K Amalgam Jet Black ink. I coloured them with my alcohol markers, added some details and highlights with a white gel pen and fussy cut them out. I cut two panels using Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative cuts, the larger from black card stock and the smaller from white. I used the “Candy Store” stencil from Heffy Doodle, turned it on it’s side slightly so the corner reached across my white panel. I masked off the rest of my panel where I didn’t want to get ink before blending Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink over my stencil. I sprayed my panel with my distress sprayer, cleaned up the excess water before splattering my panel with the same ink. I cut a small panel using Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Polygons” Honey Cuts from white card and adhered my hamsters to it as I would be using this for my focal point. I adhered the two back ones using Scor-Tape and the middle with some 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I prepared a strip of black card stock with my powder tool applicator, stamped my sentiment using Versamark ink and heat embossed it using Lawn Fawn’s white embossing powder. I adhered my black strip across my panel using Scor-Tape and popped my polygon with my hamsters up on the bottom left using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I adhered my panels together and on to a card base before finishing with some Ebony Black Nuvo drops.
P33 WF Office Birthday 1
For my second card I cut two panels once again using the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts from Mama Elephant. I stamped the plant image across my panel using my Misti stamping tool and Gina K’s Amalgam Jet black ink. I created masks for all three and covered them so I could ink blend over my images. I used a piece of scrap card stock to make my own stencil for this one using Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” Honey Cuts, adhered this temporarily over my white panel and blended within the circle using Carved Pumpkin and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Ink. I sprayed the circle with my distress sprayer, cleaned up the excess water, splattered it with Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxide Ink before lifting my stencil and removing the masks from my images. I coloured my images using my alcohol markers and added highlights with a white gel pen, I drew some gold lines across the plant pots also using a metallic chalk marker. I prepared a strip of black card stock with my powder tool applicator, stamped my sentiment from the “Tiny Terrarium” stamp set from Waffle Flower using Versamark ink and heat embossed it with Lawn Fawn’s white embossing powder. I trimmed down my sentiment and popped it up under my images using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I adhered my panels together and to my card base using Scor-Tape.

Sending Hugs With Waffle Flower’s “Group Hug” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
I’m back after a two week break to share a card I made using Waffle Flower’s “Group Hug” stamp set! The images in this stamp set are absolutely adorable, I couldn’t resist that sweet giraffe!
1.jpg
I started by using my Misti stamping platform to stamp out the large image of all the animals hugging with Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I coloured it with my alcohol markers, added details with a white gel pen and fussy cut it out. The image is pretty large so it definitely takes up the majority of your card!
2
I cut a panel from white card stock using the largest of the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts from Mama Elephant. I used the same die to cut the bottom of my image also so the finished result would be cohesive.
3.jpg
I blended over the Heffy Doodle “Dottie Lottie” stencil with Broken China and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Inks on to my white panel to create my background. I used my distress sprayer to distress the circles and splattered my panel with the same two ink colours to give it more texture.
4
Once my background panel had dried, I used my Misti once again to line up my sentiments and stamp them on to my panel using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I popped my image up using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape and adhered my panel to my card base using Scor-Tape.
P30 WF Group Hug
Thanks for reading lovelies! It’s good to be back! I’m absolutely loving the Waffle Flower products we have in stock at Bumbleberry Papercrafts, I hope you are too! I’ll see you next week with another card!

Birthday Card Using Heffy Doodle’s “Oh Crumbs” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
It was my mum’s birthday on Friday, she’s just as obsessed with dogs as I am so what better set to use for her card than the adorable “Oh Crumbs” stamp set from Heffy Doodle?! As soon as I saw this set I knew it was a must have, the corgis are just the sweetest and I love how you even have the option for spinner cards with the front and back end of one of them!
12.jpg
Any time I get a new stamp set I always start by stamping the entire thing out so I have plenty to colour before deciding which images I want to work with, I use my Misti to do this as I find it’s quick and easy to stamp an entire set out at once. I coloured up one of the corgis and some of the extras with my alcohol markers. I added some white highlights and details with a gel pen before fussy cutting them out.
3
I used the largest scalloped stitched die from Mama Elephant’s “Framed Tags” Waverly Creative Cuts to cut a panel from heavy weight white card stock. I blended my background over the Altenew “Watercolor Stripes” Stencil, using Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink on the outside edges and blending Spun Sugar Distress Oxide ink in the centre. I sprayed my panel lightly with my distress sprayer and cleaned up the excess water with a paper towel.
45
I cut a circle from white card stock using Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” Honey Cuts and lightly blended the edges with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink. I secured my circle in to my Misti and prepared it with my powder tool applicator. I stamped the “Oh Crumbs!” part of my sentiment directly on to my circle, coated it in clear embossing powder and set it with my heat tool. While the melted embossing powder was still hot I covered it with embossing powder again and heat set it, to give it a smoother and more raised effect.
6
I cut a small strip of white card stock down to fit my second half of my sentiment and used Versafine Onyx Black ink once again to stamp it, however I didn’t choose to heat emboss this part.
78.jpg
I cut a panel of white card stock using the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative cuts and blending from the outside in using Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink. I adhered both of my panels together using 1/2″ Scor-Tape. I adhered my circle flat to my panel and arranged my scene on top of it. I used my 1/2″ Scor-Tape to adhere the teapot and sugar bowl before popping my other images up with 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I finished up by popping my sentiment strip up with foam tape too and adhering my panel to my card base with Scor-Tape.

Thanks for reading lovelies! Is there a specific stamp category you have a weakness for? For me anything with dogs or food feels like a must have, which made this one impossible to resist for me! I’ll be back next week with another card, see you then!

Cute Birthday Card Using Heffy Doodle’s “Dinky Dinos” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
March is a month full of birthdays for me, so this week I’m sharing another birthday card this time using Heffy Doodle’s “Dinky Dinos” stamp set! I have a fascination with dinosaurs and these tiny little stamps were too adorable, I couldn’t resist!
1.jpg
I stamped my images using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured them with my alcohol markers. I added white highlights using a gel pen, then added some texture to the egg shell and dinos with some blue and red coloured pencils.
2.jpg
I cut a panel from white card stock using the second largest die from Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts, I used the second smallest of the “Double Stitched Circles” Honey Cuts from Honey Bee Stamps to create a window in my panel.
3
I cut a small square big enough to cover the background of my window and blended it with Evergreen Bough and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Ink, I sprayed it with my Distress Sprayer and cleaned up the excess water with a paper towel. I used the largest of the “Basic Rectangles” dies to create a layer to go behind my white panel and blended it with the same two inks.
45.jpg
I attached the ink blended square to the back of my window with 1\2″ Scor Tape and stamped my sentiment within the green circle using Versafine Onyx Black ink. I popped my little dinos up using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape and wrapped two pieces of blue and white twine around my panel, adhering them on the back. I adhered both of my panels together and on to my card base using Scor Tape.

Cute Valentine Card Using Stamps From Heffy Doodle & Mama Elephant!

Hey lovelies!
I’m here with an extra post today as I wanted to publish this in time for Valentine’s Day this week! This is my personal favourite of all the cards I’ve created for the occasion this year!
1.jpg2.jpg
I started by drawing a rough estimate I wanted the shape of my pile of letters to be. I took my small envelope stamp from Heffy Doodle’s “Yappy Happy Mail” stamp set and stamped a couple along the bottom using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, I created masks for the envelopes using some post it tape. I repeated the masking and stamping process until I was happy with how it looked.
3.jpg4.jpg
I cut a section of the letters out with the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and proceeded to colour my envelopes with my alcohol markers. I added some white highlights to the hearts on the envelopes with a white gel pen and fussy cut the top edge.
56.jpg
I cut a panel using the same die from white card stock and blended Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink up from the bottom to the point where it would peek above the pile of letters. I blended Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Ink from the top of the panel and together with the Worn Lipstick before spraying the entire panel with my Distress Sprayer. Once my pink panel was completely dry I prepared it with my powder tool applicator as I wanted to emboss my sentiment. I stamped my sentiment from Mama Elephant’s “Flying With Friends” stamp set using Versafine Onyx Black ink, coated it in clear embossing powder before setting it with my heat tool. I adhered my pile of letters flat to the bottom of the panel.
7.jpg8.jpg
I stamped my pig image from Mama Elephant’s “Hogs and Kisses” stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured him with my alcohol markers. I added some white highlights with my gel pen before fussy cutting him out also. I popped him up on my pile of letters using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I wanted to add some extra envelopes so I stamped, coloured and fussy cut a couple out separately before popping them up with foam tape around my pig and in the pile of letters for some added dimension. I cut a panel from white card stock using the largest of the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and blended it with Iced Spruce Distress Oxide Ink, I distressed my panel with my Distress Sprayer and cleaned up the excess water. Once my panel was dry I adhered everything together to my card base.

Happy New Home Card Using Lawn Fawn’s “Happy Village” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
This week I’m sharing a new home card, you never know when someone you care for will move home, it’s always handy to have a card to welcome them in to their new space! I thought Lawn Fawn’s “Happy Village” stamp set would be perfect for this occasion!
1.jpg2.jpg
I started by blending two backgrounds using Heffy Doodle’s “UnbeLEAFable” stencil and Pine Needles Distress Oxide ink.  I splattered my backgrounds with the Pine Needles Distress Oxide ink and some gold watercolour paint before putting them aside to dry. Once they were completely dry I die cut two polaroid frames using Avery Elle’s “Photo Mat Elle-ments” so I could arrange my scenes within them.
3
I cut two panels the same size as my polaroid frames and blended Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink, completely coating them. I adhered these to the backs of my polaroid frames, this acts as my sky in my scenes.
4.jpg
I stamped my images using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured them using my alcohol markers. I also took some of the scenery pieces from the Avery Elle “Photo Mat Elle-Ments” dies and coloured them also. I added some highlights with a white gel pen and adhered them in to my frames. I popped the “Home Sweet Home” sentiment up with 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape to give it a little bit of dimension.
56
I cut a panel of white card stock using the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts, splattering it with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink and gold watercolour paint. Once my background panel was dry I adhered my first polaroid scene flat, popped my second scene up using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape and adhered my panel to my card base.

Hip Hip Hoo-Ray! Cute Peekaboo Card Using Heffy Doodle “Hootiful” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
Today I’m sharing this peekaboo card I made using Heffy Doodle’s “Hootiful” stamp set along with the Mama Elephant “Framed Tags” Waverly Creative Cuts! I originally had another idea for this card, but thanks to Katrina over at Bumbleberry Papercrafts’ super speedy shipping I managed to whip this up in no time!
12
I stamped my images using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured them with my alcohol markers. I added highlights and details with my white gel pen before fussy cutting them out.
2232
I cut a panel with a peekaboo window from white card stock using two of the Mama Elephant “Framed Tag” Waverly Creative Cuts. I blended Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink over my panel, sprayed it with my Distress Sprayer and cleaned up the excess water.
4151
I cut another of the peekaboo windows from some pink polka dot patterned paper and adhered it to the inside of the flap to give it an extra finishing touch. I cut a small rectangle from white card stock using Lawn Fawn’s Shadow Box Card Dies and prepped it with my powder tool. I stamped my sentiment from Heffy Doodle’s “Hootiful” set in Versafine Onyx Black ink, coated it in clear embossing powder and set with my heat tool. I adhered this to the front of the peekaboo flap. 
6
I cut a panel from white card stock, blended Broken China and Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide ink over it to create my sky. I splattered it with white watercolour paint to give it the starry effect.
7
I cut some hills freehand from white card stock and blended Mowed Lawn Distress Ink on to them before adhering them to my background. I decided on placement for my images and adhered everything down. I created my card base by cutting two of the scalloped panels, I scored the back one and adhered the top to the other, I adhered the front panel on to the card base I created to finish.

Sending Love With Heffy Doodle “Yappy Happy Mail” Set!

Hey lovelies!
We all love a bit of happy mail don’t we? “Just because” cards are amongst my favourites to send and this set from Heffy Doodle is just perfect to show someone you’re thinking of them!
1.jpg
I started by stamping my images using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, coloured them with my alcohol markers and fussy cut them out. I used a white gel pen to add highlights and details to my images. I coloured the whole set because it was just too adorable!
2.jpg
I die cut my base panel using the Mama Elephant “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and the laced heart from Lawn Fawn “Lacy Heart Stackables” dies. I love layering die cuts on cards to add a little more dimension!
3.jpg
I blended some Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink on to my heart before splattering it with white gold metallic watercolour paint and some white paint.
4.jpg
I cut another heart using the Lacy Heart Stackables and trimmed the bottom off to make my hill to ground my images. To add a little extra detail I weaved some red and white twine through the lace around the heart.
5.jpg
I stamped my sentiment on the white part of my heart using Versafine Onyx Black ink. Once my sentiment was dry I adhered my images to my panel and used a black pen to create the little dotted line between them. I added some red and white twine around the bottom of my rectangle panel, tied a bow and adhered the bow in to place using Ranger Multi Medium Matte adhesive so it wouldn’t move around too much. I adhered the heart to my rectangle panel flat, backed the rectangle with 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape and adhered that to my card base!
