Love Themed Card Using Hero Arts’ “Candy Hearts Peek-A-Boo” Cling Stamp!

Hello lovelies!
This week I’m sharing another love themed card, I like to have a few extra of this style on hand to show my appreciation for people throughout the year.
1
I die cut a panel from watercolour paper using Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and a large scalloped panel from black card stock using Mama Elephant’s “Framed Tags” Waverly Creative Cuts. I removed the foam from my Misti stamping tool and secured my watercolour panel to stamp my background using Hero Arts’ “Candy Hearts Peek-A-Boo” Cling stamp set and Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. Once the ink was dry I watercoloured my candy hearts using Altenew’s Watercolor 36 Pan Set and set it aside to dry.
23
I used the Lawn Fawn “Outside In Stitched Heart Stackables” and “Lacy Heart Stackables” dies to cut 3 small hearts from both white and black card stock. I adhered my white hearts to my black hearts and secured them in my Misti. I stamped my sentiments from Mama Elephant’s “Big News” stamp set using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink.
4
I popped my sentiment hearts up in a row down the centre of my panel using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape before adhering both of my panels together and to my card base using Scor-Tape.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Holiday Card Using Mama Elephant’s “Fuzzy Hugs” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
I’m sharing another holiday themed card this week! This time I’m using the adorable “Fuzzy Hugs” stamp set from Mama Elephant!
12
I adhered a piece of white card stock in my Misti stamping tool and stamped all of the images from the set using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I coloured all of my images with my alcohol markers, added details with a white gel pen and fussy cut them out. I chose to use the bunnies for this card!
3
I used Heffy Doodle’s “Candy Store” stencil with Worn Lipstick and Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Inks to create my pattern on some white card stock before cutting out my heart using Lawn Fawn’s “Lacy Heart Stackables” dies.
45
I used the largest and second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut panels from black and white card stock. I also cut a panel from black card stock using the second largest, and cut a portion of it out using the “Outside In Stitched Heart Stackables” from Lawn Fawn. I splattered my heart piece with silver metallic watercolour paint. Once my heart piece was dry, I adhered it to my white panel using Scor-Tape and secured it in my Misti. I stamped my sentiment above the heart using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black Ink. I adhered my white panel to my black frame panel using Scor-Tape, and popped up my patterned heart and rabbits using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam tape before adhering my panel to my card base.

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.

Halloween Card Using Honey Bee Stamps’ “The Name’s Jack” Honey Cuts!

Hey lovelies!
This week I’m sharing a simple Halloween card using die cutting, this card would be great for party invitations I think as it would be easy to set up a production line for mass production! I decided on Honey Bee Stamps’ “The Name’s Jack” Honey Cuts for this card as the size of the dies themselves are great to use as a focal point!
1
I started by cutting out the two ghosts from white card stock, I held my chosen facial expressions for them in place with washi tape while I ran them through my machine again. I cut the ghost silhouettes out from black card stock and adhered to the back of my white ghosts so that their expressions were coloured in black!
2
I cut a black circle using Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” Honey Cuts and used the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to trim the straight edges. I used the same die from the “Basic Rectangles” to cut a panel from white card stock and adhered my black curved panel to it using Scor-Tape. I took one of the pumpkin expressions from Honey Bee Stamps’ “The Name’s Jack” Honey Cuts and cut through the top centre of the black section. I used Candied Apple Distress Oxide Ink on some white card stock to back the face to make it look like it was glowing red. I used 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape to pop both of my ghosts up in place as if they were looking at the red face, terrified!
345
I used the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut a panel from black card stock and adhered my panel with my ghosts to it with Scor-Tape. I stamped my sentiment from Lawn Fawn’s “Spooky Village” stamp set with Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink using my Misti stamping tool. I trimmed it down to a banner shape, popped it up on my card using foam tape and adhered my entire panel to my card base.

Autumnal Themed Card Using Lawn Fawn’s “Outside-In Stitched Pumpkin” Dies!

Hello lovelies!
I’m back after a short break last week with an autumnal card using the Outside-In Stitched Pumpkin dies from Lawn Fawn!
125
I cut my pieces from white card stock except for the face, which I cut from black card stock. I decided not to use the face as my card went in a different direction. I used Carved Pumpkin and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Inks to colour my pumpkin and the stem, and coloured the tendril with green alcohol markers. I adhered my stem and tendril to the back of my pumpkin with Scor-Tape. I used my Misti stamping tool to stamp my sentiment from Lawn Fawn’s “Spooky Village” stamp set on white card stock, using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I trimmed my sentiment strip down to size, cut the ends to create a banner shape and adhered it across my pumpkin using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape.
34
I was particularly fond of these leaves once I had created them and could definitely see myself making more like these for future autumnal cards! I used Fired Brick, Fossilized Amber and a little tiny bit of Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Inks and laid them down on my glass crafting mat. I sprayed them with a little bit of water and placed my white card stock down on it repeatedly, drying between layers until I was happy with the outcome. I splattered it with some metallic gold watercolour paint to give it some more texture and shimmer before using the leaf die to cut as many as I could from the panel.
67
I used the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut a black panel and the second largest to cut a white panel. I blended Squeezed Lemonade and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide Inks on to my white panel, only using the Fossilized Amber around the edges. I used my Distress Sprayer to distress my panel and splattered with gold metallic watercolour paint.
89
I started to adhered my leaves to my pumpkin flat with Scor-Tape, building across the way as I went. I popped my pumpkin and leaves up on my yellow panel with 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam tape and adhered my yellow panel to my black panel with Scor-Tape. I decided at the last minute to add two leaves under my pumpkin, one at each side with Scor-Tape as I felt it framed the pumpkin better and adhered my panel to my card base.
