Appreciation Card Using Brutus Monroe “Geared Owl” Stamp!

Hello lovelies!
This week I want to share an appreciation card I made using Brutus Monroe’s “Geared Owl” stamp
1
I used my Misti stamping tool to stamp my image using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I coloured it with my alcohol markers, sticking to grey/brown/golden tones. I used a white gel pen to add some highlights and details before fussy cutting it out.
24
I used Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut out three panels, two from Neenah Classic Crest white card stock and one from black card stock. I cut a window in my smallest panel using Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” Honey cuts and splattered my largest panel with black ink and gold metallic watercolour paint.
3
I took a small piece of watercolour paper (big enough to cover the back of my circle window) and used some water to dampen it. I placed spots of metallic watercolour paint randomly on the paper and covered it with clingfilm, scrunching it up to get the textured look I wanted by moving the paint around under it and set it aside to dry.
5
I stamped my sentiment from Heffy Doodle’s “Wingman” stamp set directly on my smallest panel using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I popped this panel up on my watercolour panel and popped my owl up on my panel also using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I used Scor-Tape to adhere all of my panels together and 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.

Two Cards Using Hero Arts’ “Fresh Citrus” Bold Prints Stamp!

Hello lovelies!
This week I’m sharing two cards I made using the Hero Arts “Fresh Citrus” Bold Prints background stamp! I love these stamps, they make it easy to produce multiple cards!
124
I cut a panel from white card stock using the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts. I used my Misti stamping tool to stamp the background on to my panel with Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink, making sure to remove the foam from my Misti beforehand. I stamped a small portion on a small piece of scrap card stock I had left over from a previous project also, so I could colour and fussy cut one of the lemon’s from it to use as an accent later on. I coloured all of the images using alcohol markers and highlighted them with a white gel pen.
35
I used Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” to cut a window from my background and set the circle aside for a second card. I adhered blue and white twine to the back of my window panel so it would show only through the circle.
67
I cut a panel the same size as my background and also a slightly smaller one using the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts. I lined up where I wanted my sentiment to go within my circle and using my Misti I stamped it using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I paired stamps from Mama Elephant’s “Sweetest Greetings” and Heffy Doodle’s “Yappy Happy Mail” stamp sets. I popped my window panel up on the sentiment panel using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape, popped up my extra lemon within my circle also and adhered my panel to my card base using Scor-Tape.
P66 HA Fresh Citrus Bold Prints2

For my second card I popped my patterned circle up on my white panel I cut previously using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I wrapped twine around the bottom of my panel this time, adhering it on the back once again. I cut a panel from black card stock using the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to frame my panel. I stamped my sentiment from Waffle Flower’s “Bear Hugs” stamp set on to a scrap piece of white card stock, trimmed it in to a banner and popped it up across my circle. I adhered both 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.

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.

Just Because Card Using Hero Arts’ “Staggering Branches” Stamp Set!

Hello lovelies! Happy New Year! I hope you all had an amazing time celebrating and are walking in to the new year feeling refreshed, looking forward to the year ahead!
This week I have a simple watercolour card to share with you all using the “Staggering Branches” stamp set from Hero Arts! This style of stamp is usually out of my comfort zone, but I’m trying to push myself this year to try new things and not get stuck in a creative rut (we all know what it’s like to hit that wall!).
1
I secured a piece of watercolour paper in my Misti stamping tool and stamped my images in the arrangement I wanted using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I love how with this stamp set you can customise the image to your liking with the antlers and branches, it gives you a lot of creative freedom! Once I had my images stamped how I wanted, I used the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut out my panel. I usually cut my panel first, but I wasn’t sure which placement I wanted beforehand this time so I found it easier to stamp first in this case! I used Altenew’s Watercolor 36 Pan Set with my Altenew Watercolor Brush in medium to paint my images.
23.jpg
While the paint was drying I secured a piece of black card stock in my Misti, prepped it with my powder tool applicator and stamped my sentiment using Versamark ink. I coated my sentiment in Lawn Fawn’s White Embossing Powder and set it with my heat tool before trimming my sentiment down to size. I used a white gel pen to add faux stitching along the edges of my sentiment and popped it up in the bottom right of my panel using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I added highlights and details to my images using my white gel pen once again. I used the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut a panel from black card stock to frame my watercolour panel and adhered them together and to my card base using Scor-Tape.

I secured my white panel in my Misti stamping tool and stamped my images and sentiment using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink.

Friendship Card Using Waffle Flower’s “Bear Hugs” Stamp Set!

Hello lovelies!
This week I’m sharing a friendship card using Waffle Flower’s “Bear Hugs” stamp set!
1
I used my Misti stamping tool to stamp my image using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I coloured it with my alcohol markers, added details and highlights with a white gel pen and fussy cut it out.
2.jpg
I cut a black panel using the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and a panel from white card stock using the second largest. I used the Altenew “Watercolor Stripes” stencil with Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink to create my background on the white panel. I splattered it with some water to distress it slightly and cleaned up any excess.
3
I adhered my panels together using Scor-Tape and my image to the centre using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I used my Misti stamping tool to stamp my sentiment using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink on white card stock and trimmed it to size. I adhered my sentiment to my panel slightly overlapping my image, using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape at the edges and Scor-Tape in the centre before adhering my panel to my card base.
