Cute Card Using Lawn Fawn’s “Let’s Toast” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
This week I’m here to share a cute love/friendship themed card using Lawn Fawn’s “Let’s Toast” stamp set! I love sending these cards to my closest friends and not only my significant other, just to let them know how much I care!

I stamped some of the images from the set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured them with my alcohol markers. I added a little extra shading to my toaster using coloured pencil to give it some extra texture as well. I stamped the images’ rosy cheeks with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink, added some highlights and details with a white gel pen before fussy cutting out my images. I used a craft knife to cut a slit in the first toaster slot so I could adhere one of my pieces of toast inside the toaster with ease!

I trimmed a piece of patterned paper to the height I wanted for the base of my panel and cut it with the second largest of the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts from Mama Elephant. I cut a panel from white card stock using the same die, lightly blended it with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink and splattered it with the same colour for added texture on my background. I cut a thin piece of white card stock to make a border between the patterned paper and my background, I blended it with some Iced Spruce distress oxide ink lightly before adhering all my pieces together.

I adhered my toaster with the toast popping out slightly flat to my panel. I wanted the other slice popped out completely, so I stamped the motion lines with Iced Spruce Distress Oxide Ink above my toaster before popping the other slice of toast and the butter up with some 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. For my sentiment I cut down a thin strip of black card stock and prepared it with my powder tool. I stamped my sentiment using Versamark ink, I coated it in Lawn Fawn’s White embossing powder, set it with my heat tool and popped it up with foam tape also. I used the largest of the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut a panel of black card stock to frame my scene and adhered everything to my card base.

Halloween Card Using Leftover Supplies from Love From Lizi 2017 Card Kit!

Hey lovelies!
My crafty friends who know me, know I LOVE to hoard Halloween supplies. Some things are just too pretty to use! I’ve made it my mission this year to use all the things that I’ve been hoarding for quite some time now, some of those supplies come from the Love From Lizi Halloween card kit from last year! I couldn’t bring myself to use most of the pretty papers and bits and bobs last year, so here is the first of the cards I’ve made with what I have left over!
1.jpg
I cut down two white panels one for my base and the other to ink smoosh and stamp. I ink smooshed my smaller panel with Twisted Citron and a little bit of Evergreen Bough Distress Oxide ink, drying between layers. Once it was completely dry I splattered some of the Evergreen Bough ink on to my ink smooshed panel and my white panel with a paint brush, I also splattered some black watercolour paint on my white panel. I stamped my skulls from the Love from Lizi “Punny Bones” set in a pattern using Versafine Onyx Black ink. I ran it through my die cutting machine with the largest of my Inside Scalloped Octagon dies from Craftin Desert Divas and removed the inside piece to use on my card. I ran the same die through once more using black card stock to create my frame.

I cut a piece of the green and black patterned paper in to a large ribbon to go down the left side of my card and adhered everything in to place using double sided score tape.

I trimmed the top off of the Octagon using my paper trimmer. I prepped a thin strip of black card stock with my EK Success powder tool and stamped my sentiment from Newton’s Nook’s “Boo-tiful Night” stamp set in Versamark ink, coated it in white embossing powder and set with my heat tool. I used my scissors to create a fish tail at the end of my sentiment banner and popped it up on my panel using double sided foam tape. I cut a panel from the patterned paper slightly larger than my base panel of my card and adhered both to my card base using double sided score tape. I finished up by framing my sentiment with some Ebony Black Nuvo drops.

Let’s Get Coloring! Craftin Desert Divas Designer Challenge!

Hey lovelies!
Today I’m taking part in the Craftin Desert Divas Let’s Get Colouring Designer Creative Challenge! Where some of the CDD design team are sharing tips and tricks on how they colour their stamped images, so be sure to head over to the Craftin Desert Divas blog post where each designer is highlighted!

I decided to use alcohol markers to colour my image today, when I first started card making just over a year ago, I found using alcohol markers really intimidating as I had never used them before! I’ve found though that practice really is the key to finding how you like colouring with them! If like me you’re using Spectrum Noir markers, I would definitely suggest making a swatch sheet of the pens you own, it’ll make it easier for you to see which colours would likely go together! Today I’ll be sharing how I find it works best for me with the Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.

I always start by stamping two of the image I want to colour, that way if I make a mistake I have another one ready! Today I’ll be colouring this adorable bunny chasing the butterfly from the brand new Brighter Days set from Craftin Desert Divas.
2.jpg3.jpg4.jpg
My general rule of thumb is to start with my darkest shade, blend it out slightly with my medium shade then finish by blending in my lightest shade. For the bunny’s face/ears/hands I used: IG5, GG2 & GG1.
5.jpg678.jpg
Moving on to the clothes, I stick to the same rule of darkest > lightest but for the yellows and blues I only use two of each shade. For the yellows I used: GB3 & LY1 and for the blues I used: GT2 & IB1. If you don’t have a medium shade and the two colours you have are too far from each other to blend, you can try touching the tip of your dark marker to your light one to create a medium shade!
9.jpg10.jpg
I used TN3 to colour my net, as it’s such a thin area there isn’t need for much shading on it. For the bunny’s little squirrel friend I used: TN5 & TN3 for the darker area of his fur and for the lighter areas I used: TN3 as my darkest and TN1 as my lightest. For the butterfly I blended an orange marker: OR2 and a yellow: LY1 for the main part of the wings, the dot details and the butterfly’s body were coloured using IG5. I coloured the inside of the bunny’s mouth using IG5 too, and then used CR9 and CR4 for their tongues.

I then added some rosy cheeks using a pink coloured pencil, and added dotting details and highlights using a white permanent chalk pen.
12.jpg
I fussy cut my image out and set it aside while I assembled the rest of my card.

I started with my background panel by die cutting a panel using the largest of the Crazy Stitched Frame Dies from heavyweight white card stock. I splattered it with distress ink by laying some ink down on my craft mat and diluting it with water before picking it up with a paint brush, to splatter it I simply held the brush above my panel and tapped on it lightly. I used peacock feathers and mustard seed on their own, then mixed them to create the green splatter. I set that aside to dry while I worked on the “grass” the critters are running on.
I cut another piece of white card stock using the largest of the Crazy Stitched Frame Dies, then cut the stitched border across it using a die from the Shake It Up Dies set. I then took mowed lawn and blended it on my card stock using an ink blending tool before setting it quickly with a heat tool so I could move on to embossing my sentiment. I prepped my grass panel with my powder tool applicator, stamped my sentiment “Sending HUGS” from the Wishful Thoughts stamp set with Versamark ink, coated it with white embossing powder and set it with my heat tool.
I adhered my grass panel to my splattered panel using double sided tape and popped the bunny up with double sided foam tape at the right side of the panel. I created my card base and cut down some yellow spotted patterned paper and adhered it to my base using score tape, before backing my entire panel with double sided foam tape and adhering it to my card base.
