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.

Cute Sea Themed Birthday Card Using Avery Elle’s “Sea-prise” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
I thought I’d change it up from all the love themed posts this week and make a birthday card instead. Sea themed stamps are ones I’ve always struggled with, however I have a huge love for sharks and finally gave in to getting the “Sea-prise” stamp set from Avery Elle!
1.jpg
I stamped my images using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured them using my alcohol markers. I used a white gel pen to add highlights to my images and some texture to my pufferfish before fussy cutting them out.
234.jpg
I cut a panel from white card stock using the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and cut a window in the panel using Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” Honey Cuts. I stamped the little bubbles all over my panel using Iced Spruce Distress Oxide Ink to add a little more detail to my panel. Once my ink was completely dry (with no risk of me smudging it!) I stamped my sentiment above my circle window using Versafine Onyx Black ink.
5
I cut a panel from white card stock bigger than my circle window. I blended Broken China Distress Oxide Ink and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink on to my card stock, keeping Broken China towards the bottom of it. I sprayed it using my Distress Sprayer and cleaned off the excess water with a paper towel.
6
I backed my white panel with 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape and adhered the blue panel behind my window. I added some foam tape to the back of my shark and pufferfish also, adding the shark inside the circle and the pufferfish on the outer edge before adhering my entire panel 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.

Coffee With A Splash Of Love! Using Altenew’s “Coffee With A Splash” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
Sharing another love themed card this week, this time I’m sharing my love for coffee with you using the Altenew “Coffee With A Splash” stamp set! This style is way out of my comfort zone as I’m familiar with using cutesy images on my card, it’s always good to dust off the cobwebs and dive in to something a little different!
1.jpg2
I started by cutting two panels of card stock from the largest and second largest of the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts from Mama Elephant, one from black card stock and the other from white. I used Vintage Photo Distress Ink to create the coffee background by placing some of the ink on to my glass craft mat, spraying it with water, repeatedly placing my white panel in to it and drying between every layer. I used the same ink and some gold metallic watercolour paint to splatter my panel also to add a little more texture to the background. Once my panel was completely dry I stamped my coffee stains all over the background using Versafine Onyx Black ink.
3
I cut a circle from black card stock using Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” Honey Cuts. I prepped my circle with my powder tool applicator, stamped my coffee cup with Versamark ink and heat embossed it using Lawn Fawn’s white embossing powder.
45
I cut a sentiment strip from white card stock and prepped it with my powder tool applicator. I stamped my sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink, coated it in clear embossing powder and set it with my heat tool. I adhered both my black circle with my coffee cup and my sentiment strip to my background with 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape before adhering my background to my black panel. I adhered this to my card base and finished with some Ebony Black Nuvo drops for embellishment!

Cute Valentine’s Day Card Using Mama Elephant’s “Little Bear Agenda” Stamp Set!

Hello lovelies!
This week I’m sharing a Valentine’s Day card using Mama Elephant’s “Little Bear Agenda” stamp set! I have a feeling these cuties are going to be appearing in a lot of my love themed cards this year!
1.jpg
I stamped the entire set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured them using my alcohol markers, I like to batch stamp/colour when I know I’m going to be making lots of cards with this set! I added details and highlights using a white gel pen and fussy cut my images out.
2.jpg
I cut down a piece of white card stock and used the “Halftone Stencil” from Altenew to ink it up with “Tumbled Glass” Distress Oxide Ink. I used Avery Elle’s “Photo Mat Elle-Ments” dies to cut out my polaroid photo frame from my card stock and once extra with some plain white card stock. I adhered both of the photo frames together to make it a little sturdier.
3.jpg4.jpg
I took the pieces of the scene from the white layer of the die and coloured them to create my background. I used my alcohol markers for the grass and clouds and “Tumbled Glass” Distress Oxide Ink once again for my sky. I cut some trees from Lawn Fawn’s “Shadow Box Card” dies and used my alcohol markers to colour them also. I adhered my photo frame to some white card stock the same size as the frame itself and assembled my background inside it.
5.jpg
I added my little bears and my trees to my background scene. I took a panel of white card stock slightly larger than the largest of the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts from Mama Elephant, smooshed some of the “Tumbled Glass” Distress Oxide Ink on to my glass crafting mat, sprayed it with water and placed my card stock on top making sure to dry between each layer. I repeated the process with some gold watercolour paint before cutting it with the largest of the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts. I cut a vellum layer using the largest die from the “Framed Tags” Waverly Creative Cuts by Mama Elephant to separate the background from my polaroid frame. I adhered these three layers together, stamped my sentiment from Neat and Tangled’s “Beavers Eh” stamp set in Versafine Onyx Black ink and cut it from the washi tape die in the Avery Elle “Photo Mat Elle-Ments” die set. I popped my sentiment up on the vellum using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape to match the thickness of the photo frame, adhered my panel to my card base and added some blue Nuvo Drops to finish.

Christmas Card Using Mama Elephant’s “Yappy Woofmas” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
Christmas is only a couple of days away now, where has this year gone?! I wanted to take this opportunity to wish you a very Merry Christmas (or happy holidays, whichever you prefer!) before the big day! I wanted to revisit which is probably my favourite stamp set I’ve bought for the holidays this year, Mama Elephant’s “Yappy Woofmas” set is just too adorable for words!
1.jpg
I stamped a couple of the images using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured them using my alcohol markers. I added some highlights with a white gel pen and fussy cut them out. I just had to use the cute fluffy dog wrapped in the Christmas lights as he looks like my parents’ dog, as this was their card for this year I couldn’t resist!
2.jpg
I cut a panel from the Mama Elephant “Framed Tags” Waverly Creative Cuts and ink blended it using Broken China and Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide Ink. I distressed it using my distress sprayer and once it was dry I drew small dots using a white gel pen for the snowy effect.
3.jpg
I cut another panel from white card stock using the same die, drew a hill shape across it and cut along the line before adhering it in to place.
4.jpg5.jpg
I prepped my panel using my powder tool applicator, stamped my sentiment from My Favorite Things “Happy Pawlidays” stamp set on the white hillside using Versafine Onyx Black ink, coated it in clear embossing powder and set it with my heat tool. I popped my images up with 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I decided to stamp Santa with his reindeer from Lawn Fawn’s “Winter Skies” stamp set in Versafine Onyx Black ink to add a little extra to my panel. I cut the larger panel from the “Framed Tags” Creative Cuts and splattered it with Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide ink and some white gold metallic watercolour paint for some shimmer before adhering everything to my card base.

Thanks for reading lovelies! I hope you all have a wonderful time over the holidays and I’ll see you again just before the new year!

Cute Christmas Card Using Mama Elephant “Cool Penguin” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
Today I wanted to share with you a card I made using Mama Elephant’s “Cool Penguin” set! These penguins are just far too adorable I couldn’t resist them!

I stamped my images out using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured them with my alcohol markers. I added some details with a white gel pen before fussy cutting them out.
I cut a panel from white card stock and coated it with Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide Ink, sprayed it with my distress sprayer and cleaned up the excess water. I splattered it with some white watercolour paint to give it a wintery feel!
I cut the frame for my scene from the new Mama Elephant “Framed Tag” Waverly Creative Cuts, using the big scalloped die for the frame itself and the smaller one to cut the window from it. I cut a panel to lay my frame on from the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts from Mama Elephant.
I stamped my sentiment directly on to my distress oxide background using Versafine Onyx Black Ink. Once I decided my placement for all of the penguins I adhered everything down inside the scalloped frame. I popped the framed panel up with foam tape for extra dimension and adhered everything 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!

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!
3
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!
