Simple Card Using Concord & 9th’s “Autumn Harvest” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
It’s my favourite time of year! Crafting in Autumn and Winter just has a cozy feeling about it, wouldn’t you agree? This “Autumn Harvest” stamp set from Concord & 9th was the perfect set to ease me in to it this year!
1
I used my Misti stamping tool to stamp out the entire set with Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink and coloured my images using my alcohol markers. I’m only using the pumpkin and acorn for this card, I added white details with a gel pen and fussy cut them out.
23
I used the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut a panel from black card stock and the second largest to cut a panel from kraft card stock. I splattered my kraft panel with some gold metallic paint to add texture and set aside to dry. I secured a strip of black card stock in my Misti and prepared it with my powder tool. I stamped my sentiment from Altenew’s “Coffee With A Splash” stamp set using Versamark ink, coated it in Lawn Fawn’s White embossing powder and set with my heat tool. I trimmed it down to size.
4
I wrapped some natural jute twine around my kraft panel near the bottom and adhered my images and sentiment with 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I popped up my kraft panel on my black panel with foam tape also but used Scor-Tape to adhere everything to my card base.

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.
23.jpg
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.
4
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.
5
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.

Simple Friendship Card Using Concord & 9th’s “Feathered” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
This week I’m sharing a quick and simple friendship card because sometimes we need need something quick and easy on hand to brighten someone’s day! The “Feathered” stamp set from Concord & 9th is so versatile and perfect for this!
1
I cut a panel down from white card stock using the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts from Mama Elephant. I used Gina K’s Amalgam “Jet Black” ink to stamp one of the feather images in a pattern all over my panel. I used my Misti stamping tool to hold my panel in place while I stamped my pattern.
2.jpg
While I was waiting on the ink drying on my panel I prepped some black card stock with my powder tool applicator and stamped my sentiment in Versamark ink, coated it in gold embossing powder and set it with my heat tool. Once the embossing powder had cooled I trimmed my sentiment down in to a strip to go across my panel.
3.jpg
Now that the ink on my patterned panel was dry I splattered it with two shades of gold metallic watercolour paint to add a little extra texture.
45.jpg
I used Scor-Tape to adhere my sentiment across my panel once my splattered paint was dry. I mounted my patterned panel on to a black panel I had cut down using the largest of the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and adhered them to my card base using Scor-Tape.

Birthday Card Using Mama Elephant’s “Stackable Cuties” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
I’m back this week to share a birthday card using Mama Elephant’s “Stackable Cuties” stamp set!
12
I cut a panel from white card stock using Altenew’s “Cube Cover” die and another panel the same size to back it with. I placed some Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink on my glass craft mat and sprayed it with some water, I placed my backing panel on to my ink multiple times making sure to dry it with my heat tool between layers. Once I was happy with my background panel I splattered both panels with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink and pink metallic watercolour paint to give it a little shimmer. Once both layers were dry I adhered them together.
3.jpg4
I cut a small circle from white card stock using Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” Honey Cuts and trimmed down a black strip of card. I adhered both of these to my panel flat.
56.jpg7.jpg
I stamped my images from Mama Elephant’s “Stackable Cuties” stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured them using my alcohol markers. I added some white highlights with a gel pen before fussy cutting them out. I adhered the elephant and fox flat to the circle and popped the unicorn up with a piece of 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I prepared some white card stock using my powder tool applicator and stamped my little speech bubble sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black ink, coated it in clear embossing powder before setting it with my heat tool. I fussy cut my speech bubble out and popped it up on my panel. I cut a piece of black card stock slightly larger than my panel, adhered it at the back to frame my card and adhered 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!

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.
4.jpg5.jpg6.jpg
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.
7.jpg
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!

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.

Christmas Card Using Avery Elle “A Merry Little Christmas” Set!

Hey lovelies!
Today I’m sharing another Christmas card, this time using Avery Elle’s “A Merry Little Christmas” stamp set!
1.jpg
I stamped my images using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured them using my alcohol markers, added highlights and details with a white gel pen before fussy cutting them out. I had so much fun colouring up this set, all of the images are just too cute!
2.jpg
I die cut my base panel using the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts from Mama Elephant and ink blended it with Broken China Distress Oxide ink. I sprayed the panel with my Distress sprayer and cleaned up the excess water. Once it was fully dry I splattered it with white gold metallic watercolour paint and some white watercolour paint to give the impression of snow falling.
3.jpg
Once my panel was dry I used my powder tool on it to avoid excess embossing powder sticking to my background. I stamped my sentiment using Versamark ink, coated it in white embossing powder and set with my heat tool. I cut an extra panel from the “Basic Rectangle” Creative Cuts and cut a curved hill shape from it with my scissors. I adhered my hill to my panel and decided placement for my images. I adhered the mouse and bear at the back flat, and popped up the hedgehog, penguin and mouse at the front using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape before adhering my panel to my card 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!
