Simple Love Themed Card Using Waffle Flower’s “Love You Bunnies” Stamp Set!

Hello lovelies!
Valentine’s Day is just a few days away now, so I’m sharing another love themed card this week! The bunnies from Waffle Flower’s “Love You Bunnies” stamp set are adorable!
1
I used my Misti stamping tool and Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink to stamp my images out on white card stock. I coloured them using my alcohol markers, added details with a white gel pen and fussy cut them out. I adhered the coffee cups to their hands using Scor-Tape.
23
I cut two panels from white card stock using the second largest die from Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts. I used the smaller scalloped die from Mama Elephant’s “Framed Tags” Waverly Creative Cuts to cut a window from one of these panels, this would act as my stencil. I adhered both of my panels together using some washi tape, blended over my stencil with Twisted Citron and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Inks and distressed it with some water.
4
I secured my panel back in my Misti so I could stamp my sentiment using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black Ink. I popped my images up using 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 before adhering 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.

Holiday Shaker Card Using Mama Elephant’s “Snow Friends” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
I have a holiday shaker card to share with you this week, this time using Mama Elephant’s “Snow Friends” stamp set!
12
I cut my panels and window from white card stock using Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts. I cut a hill shape from the panel I had left from cutting my window and shaded it with a grey alcohol marker and blender pen. I cut some acetate down to size and adhered it to the back of my frame using Scor-Tape and adhered my hill panel in to place.
34
I secured some white card stock in my Misti stamping tool and stamped my images using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I coloured them using my alcohol markers, adding highlights and details using a white gel pen. I fussy cut them out and popped them up on my panel using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape.
56
I blended the panel I cut using the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts using Shaded Lilac and Broken China Distress Oxide Inks. I distressed the panel using a paint brush and some water, cleaning up the excess water before also splattering my panel with white metallic paint. I doubled up my 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape on the back of my main panel to allow room for my sequins to move inside my card, I dusted my window and the inside of the foam tape as well as my splattered panel using my powder tool to ensure they wouldn’t cling to any particular spots. I added my sequins and sealed off my shaker with my splattered panel.
7
I stamped my sentiment with Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink using my Misti stamping tool and cut it out using the smallest of Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” Honey Cuts. I popped it up in the top right hand corner using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape again before adhering my panel to my card base.

Holiday Card Using Mama Elephant’s “Little Penguin Agenda” Stamp Set!

Hello lovelies!
This week I’m sharing another Christmas/Holiday themed card! I’m in love with the Little Agenda sets from Mama Elephant, so this week I used the “Little Penguin Agenda” stamp set!
1
I started by cutting out all the panels I would need for my card. I cut two panels from white card stock using the largest and second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative cuts, and two panels using the small scalloped die from Mama Elephant’s “Framed Tags” Waverly Creative Cuts. I used the window die from the “Basic Rectangles” set to cut a window in one of my scalloped panels. I stamped all of the penguins from the “Little Penguin Agenda” stamp set using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink in my Misti stamping tool. I coloured them with my alcohol markers, added details with a white gel pen and fussy cut them out.
2
I blended Spun Sugar and Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide Inks on to the smaller of my rectangle panels and my scalloped panel without the window, finishing them off with some white metallic splatter to give the effect of shimmery snowfall.
3
I secured my scalloped panel with the window in to my Misti and stamped my sentiment from Mama Elephant’s “Snow Friends” stamp set using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink.
4
I adhered my rectangle panels together using Scor-Tape, and my scalloped panels together using Scor-Tape also. I popped my scalloped panel up in the centre of my rectangle panels, added my penguins in to the windows using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape and adhered my panel to my card base.

Three Christmas Cards Using Mama Elephant’s “The Penguin’s Waddle” Stamp Set!

Hello lovelies!
I’m starting to get prepared for Christmas this year to avoid the last minute rush that usually happens late November/early December! If you’re looking for a way to make quick cards that are easy to make multiples of, “The Penguin’s Waddle” stamp set from Mama Elephant is perfect! I have three cards using this set to share with you today!
12
I cut three panels from white card stock using the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts. I used my Misti stamping tool to stamp my penguins on my panels using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink, two vertically and one horizontally. I stamped a copy on some masking paper and carefully trimmed it out and placed my mask over my penguins on one of the vertical panels. I shifted my panel over to the side and stamped my second lot of penguins above my mask to create the fuller panel of penguins. I coloured my horizontal panel and my vertical panel with the most penguins using my alcohol markers, I also coloured the penguins on the second vertical panel but left the top portion of my panel white and fussy cut them out. I added highlights and details using a white gel pen, including some snow on the panels where I coloured the background.
34
I cut another panel from white card stock with the same die as before and blended it with Shaded Lilac and Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Inks. I splattered some water on my panel with a paintbrush and cleaned off the excess to give it the distressed look, this will be my “snow” for this card! Once my ink on the panel was dry I secured it in my Misti and stamped my “Warm Wishes” sentiment from Waffle Flower’s “Fall Greetings” stamp set directly on my panel using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I popped up my penguins I fussy cut earlier at the bottom using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape.
5
I secured my horizontal panel in to my Misti next and stamped my sentiment from Mama Elephant’s “Snow Friends” stamp set also using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink.
6
I secured a strip of black card stock in to my Misti and prepped it with my powder tool applicator. I stamped my sentiment from Mama Elephant’s “Cool Penguin” stamp set using Versamark ink, coated it in Lawn Fawn’s White embossing powder and set it with my heat tool. I trimmed it down to size and used my white gel pen to create the stitched effect around the sides. I popped my sentiment up using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape.
7
I cut three black panels using the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts. I adhered each of my panels to the black panels and to my card bases using Scor-Tape.

Autumnal Card Using Waffle Flower’s “Fall Greetings” Stamp Set!

Hello lovelies!
This week I wanted to share with you this autumnal card using Waffle Flower’s “Fall Greetings” stamp set! I absolutely love this set, the main image with the two little birds drew my attention right away!
123
I used the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut two panels from white card stock, cutting a window through one of them with Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” Honey Cuts. I took my panel without the window and secured it in my Misti stamping tool. I stamped my image using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink in the centre towards the top of my panel so it would fit in my window I created.
4
I coloured my image and background with my alcohol markers, using a white gel pen to add highlights and details before adhering my panel with the window on top of my coloured panel using Scor-Tape.
567
I secured my panel in to my Misti again to stamp the second half of my sentiment using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink, I also stamped my “hello” sentiment on some white card stock, fussy cut it out and popped it up on my panel using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I used the largest of the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut a frame for my panel and adhered both panels to my card base using Scor-Tape.

Simple Halloween Card Using Lawn Fawn’s “Spooky Village” Stamp Set!

Hello lovelies!
I’m back this week with another simple Halloween card, this time using Lawn Fawn’s “Spooky Village” stamp set! I personally love these village sets that Lawn Fawn release, they’re great for scene building!
12
I  used my Misti stamping tool to stamp the entire set using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink and coloured my images with my alcohol markers. I added some highlights and details using a white gel pen and fussy cut them out.
34
I used the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut a panel from matte black card stock and one from black glitter card stock. I used the second largest of the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut the centre from my glitter panel and a panel from white card stock, I also cut a matte black panel using this die and trimmed it down so it would adhere as a thin strip across my white panel. Using Scor-Tape I  adhered my glitter frame to the matte black panel, inlaid my white panel in to the frame and adhered my black strip across my white panel.
5
I adhered my pumpkins, headstones and the two houses close to the edges flat to my panel with Scor-Tape and popped my middle houses up with 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I secured my panel in to my Misti and stamped my sentiment and the bats using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink before adhering the panel to my card base.

Simple Just Because Card Using Lawn Fawn’s “Keep On Swimming” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
This week I’m back with another just because card using Lawn Fawn’s “Keep On Swimming” stamp set!
1
The images in this set are adorable, I was immediately drawn to the pufferfish! I stamped my images using my Misti stamping tool and Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I used my alcohol markers to colour them but for the water in the fish bowl I used a combination of Broken China and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Inks. I added details with a white gel pen and fussy cut them out.
2.jpg
I cut a panel from white card stock using the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative cuts and used Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” Honey cuts to cut a window to the left of my panel.
3
I used the second largest from the “Basic Rectangles” to cut another white panel, I blended over it with Squeezed Lemonade and Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxide Inks using the Altenew “Watercolor Stripes” stencil. I cut a black panel from the largest of the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to frame my card.
4
I used my Misti to stamp my sentiment on white card stock using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink, trimmed it down to size and framed it with black card stock also to make it pop from my white panel. I adhered my white, striped and black panels together using Scor-Tape. I adhered my images with Scor-Tape also, apart from my pufferfish and sentiment strip which I adhered with 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I adhered my panel flat to my card base and embellished with some blue Nuvo drops.

Two Cards Using Heffy Doodle’s “Wingman” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
This week I’m back with two cards, this time using Heffy Doodle’s “Wingman” stamp set! I’m a crazy bird lady so this set is a must have for me!
First Card:
1
I used my Misti stamping tool to stamp out all the images with Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I’ll only be using one of the birds with the swing for the first card but I held on to the rest for the second! I coloured them with my alcohol markers, added highlights and details with a white gel pen and fussy cut them all out.
23
I used the largest and second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut two panels from white card stock. I cut a circle window in the smaller panel using Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” Honey Cuts. I blended Carved Pumpkin and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Inks over Heffy Doodle’s “Dottie Lottie” stencil on my larger panel for my background.
45
I took my white panel with the window and secured it in my Misti, I stamped my sentiment directly on to my panel using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I adhered my white panel and my images to the background panel using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape and adhered my panel to my card base using Scor-Tape. I added some orange Nuvo drops for embellishment.
P44 HD Wingman (1)
Second Card:
67
I cut a panel from white card stock using the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts. I blended Squeezed Lemonade with a little Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxide Inks over Heffy Doodle’s “Brick By Brick” stencil and distressed it with some water. I cut another panel the same size and cut it in to smaller sections, blended the larger of the two sections with Broken China and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Inks, I used Iced Spruce Distress Oxide Ink for the thin strip.
89
I adhered the blue and grey strips to my stencilled background using Scor-Tape and secured my panel in to my Misti. I stamped my sentiment using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I popped all of my images up in to place with 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I framed my scene with a black panel cut using the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and adhered my panels together and to my card base using Scor-Tape.

Simple Card Using Heffy Doodle’s “You’re Weird” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
This week I’m sharing a simple appreciation card using Heffy Doodle’s “You’re Weird” stamp set! I’ve always been obsessed with the moon and the opportunity to line up the stamps to make a full moon with this set drew me in!
16.jpg
I used my Misti to stamp the first half of the moon with Gina K Amalgam Jet Black ink, cleaned off my stamp and lined it up so that the edges met and stamped the other half. I shaded my moon with a regular drawing pencil and set it with a little hairspray to stop it from smudging. I added some white highlights with a gel pen before fussy cutting it out. I used my Misti again to stamp my sentiment using the same ink as before.
234.jpg
I cut a panel from white card stock using the second largest die from Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and blended Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink over it. I spread some blue metallic watercolour paint over my glass crafting mat and sprayed it with some water to allow more movement. I placed my panel down on to the watercolour paint and dried between each layer until I was happy with how it looked. I splattered some white metallic watercolour paint over the top to give the illusion of stars.
5
Here is a close up of how the panel looks when the light hits the metallic paint. I set the panel aside to dry.
7.jpg8.jpg
I cut a panel from black card stock this time using the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts. I doubled up some 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape to pop my moon up on my galaxy panel and adhered my panels together and to my card base using Scor-Tape.
