Encouragement Card Using Pink Fresh Studio’s “Word Series: Dream” Stamp Set!

Hello lovelies!
I’m back this week with a relatively simple encouragement card using Pink Fresh Studio’s “Word Series: Dream” stamp set! I’ve always been called a dreamer and I’m typically drawn to the night sky, particularly the moon so when I saw this set I knew I’d get a lot of use from it straight away!

I cut a panel from white card stock using the second largest die from Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and used Black Soot Distress Ink with some water to paint my panel. You could easily just use some black card stock for the base but I liked the added texture it gave my background! I used a combination of sponges and brushes to layer Dusty Concord and Broken China Distress Oxide Inks on different parts of my panel to give the look of a galaxy/night sky. I splattered it with white metallic watercolour paint and left it to dry for a moment while I cleaned up.

Once my splattering was dry I secured my panel in to my Misti and used my powder tool applicator so embossing powder would only stick to where I wanted it to. I used Versamark ink to stamp my sentiments, coated them in Lawn Fawn’s White embossing powder and set them with my heat tool. I decided to paint the moon and clouds with metallic watercolour paints to make them pop against the background a little more.

I used the largest of the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut a panel from black card stock and adhered my other panel to it’s centre before adhering this to my card base using Scor-Tape. I added some Ebony Black Nuvo drops for embellishment and set my card somewhere safe to allow them to dry overnight.

Just Because Card Using Mama Elephant’s “Wish Upon A Star” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
“Just because” cards are probably my favourites to make, as I tend to send cards to my loved ones quite often out of the blue to let them know I’m thinking of them. The “Wish Upon A Star” stamp set from Mama Elephant is adorable and I had to get it, especially when I saw that bunny on the moon!
1
I stamped all of the images out in my Misti using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink and coloured the three images I planned to use for my card using my alcohol markers. I added white highlights and details using a gel pen before I fussy cut them out.

I cut a small scalloped panel from white card stock using Mama Elephant’s “Framed Tags” Waverly Creative Cuts. I secured it in my Misti and stamped the clouds using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink again. I coloured the clouds with my alcohol markers using the colourless blender to blend the grey ink out a little. I used Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” Honey Cuts to cut a window towards the top of my panel.

I cut another panel from white card stock using the small scalloped die and blended it with Victorian Velvet and Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Inks. I splattered it with some white metallic watercolour paint to give the illusion of stars. Once the paint was dry I adhered this background behind my panel with the clouds so the colour would only show behind the window. I adhered the bunny sitting on the moon flat to my panel using Scor-Tape and popped the cloud up just below him with 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape.

I used the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut a panel from white card stock. I put down some pink metallic watercolour paint on to my glass craft mat, sprayed it with water and placed my card stock in to it repeatedly, being sure to dry it using my heat tool between layers. I splattered the panel with the same watercolour paint (slightly more concentrated) and set aside to dry. While the paint was drying I stamped my sentiment on a strip of white card stock using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink again and cut in to the ends to create my banner. I adhered my scalloped panel to my background panel with the watercolour paint, adhered my sentiment banner flat under the window using Scor-Tape and popped the bunny up to the side of it using foam tape. I cut one last panel from white card stock to frame my scene using the largest of the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and adhered everything to my card base using Scor-Tape.
