Appreciation Card Using Brutus Monroe “Geared Owl” Stamp!

Hello lovelies!
This week I want to share an appreciation card I made using Brutus Monroe’s “Geared Owl” stamp
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, sticking to grey/brown/golden tones. I used a white gel pen to add some highlights and details before fussy cutting it out.
24
I used Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut out three panels, two from Neenah Classic Crest white card stock and one from black card stock. I cut a window in my smallest panel using Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” Honey cuts and splattered my largest panel with black ink and gold metallic watercolour paint.
3
I took a small piece of watercolour paper (big enough to cover the back of my circle window) and used some water to dampen it. I placed spots of metallic watercolour paint randomly on the paper and covered it with clingfilm, scrunching it up to get the textured look I wanted by moving the paint around under it and set it aside to dry.
5
I stamped my sentiment from Heffy Doodle’s “Wingman” stamp set directly on my smallest panel using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I popped this panel up on my watercolour panel and popped my owl up on my panel also using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I used Scor-Tape to adhere all of my panels together and to my card base.

Simple Friendship Card Using Mama Elephant’s “My Pet Puppies” Stamp Set!

Hello lovelies!
Today I’m sharing a friendship card using the “My Pet Puppies” stamp set from Mama Elephant!
1
I used my Misti stamping tool to stamp my images using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I coloured them with my alcohol markers and added some highlights and details with a white gel pen.
234
I die cut a panel from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest card stock using the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts. I cut a panel using the same die from some watercolour paper and die cut a circle in the centre using Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” Honey Cuts, this will act as a stencil to get the circle on my white panel. I layered the “Stained Glass” stencil from Honey Bee Stamps over my circle stencil I made and blended on to my white panel using Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Inks using the “Life Changing Blender Brushes” from Picket Fence Studios. After removing my stencils I splattered my panel with blue and green metallic watercolour paints, once that was dry I popped my images up at the bottom of my circle using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape.
56
I used my Misti once again to stamp my sentiment using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink, trimmed it down to size and popped it up on my panel with foam tape before adhering my entire panel to my card base.

Just Because Card Using Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Daffodil Stamp Set!

Hello lovelies!
I have a simple card to share with you this week using the Altenew: Paint-A-Flower: Daffodil stamp set!
1
I stamped my images on watercolour paper using my Misti stamping tool and Gina K Amalgam Jet Black ink. I painted my images using the Altenew Watercolor 36 Pan Set, once they were dry I added some highlights with a white gel pen and fussy cut them out.
23
I used the Waffle Flower “Nesting Postage” dies to cut out two small panels from Neenah Classic Crest card stock. I used Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink and the “Life Changing Blender Brushes” from Picket Fence Studios to blend ink on to the larger panel and distressed it with some water. I stamped my sentiment on the smaller white panel using Gina K Amalgam Jet Black ink and adhered both panels together using Scor-Tape. I used 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape to pop my image up at the bottom.
456
I cut a panel from black card stock and white card stock using Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and splattered the white panel with metallic gold watercolour paint. Once my splatter had dried I adhered both panels together using Scor-Tape, popped my image panel up using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape and adhered my panel to my card base.

Thinking Of You Card Using Brutus Monroe “Rose Garden” Stamp!

Hello lovelies!
I’m back this week with a thoughtful card using Brutus Monroe’s “Rose Garden” stamp! Roses have a special meaning to me so I had to pick this one up!
12
I trimmed down some watercolour paper and put down some ink from my Distress Inks (the oxides will work for this too) in Fired Brick and Abandoned Coral on my glass crafting mat. I mixed them with a little water before also preparing my watercolour paper with water too, to allow the inks to move around easier. I painted both colours on in a random fashion and allowed them to blend together where they met, leaving some areas darker than others. As a last minute decision I added in some gold spots with metallic watercolour paints before scrunching up some clingfilm and covering the watercolour paper, moving the inks and paint around with my fingers through the film until I was happy with it. I set it aside to dry completely before removing the film, this creates different shapes and patterns for your background!
34
Once it had completely dried, I used my powder tool applicator to ensure embossing powder would only stick to where I stamped. I secured the paper in to my Misti stamping tool and stamped my image using Versamark ink. I coated the ink in Lawn Fawn’s White embossing powder and set with my heat tool. I used Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut a panel from the area I wanted and splattered it with some gold metallic watercolour paint to add some more texture and shine.
56
I trimmed a panel from black card stock slightly larger than the patterned panel before cutting a white panel and another black panel using the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts once again to frame my patterned panel. I adhered all panels together using Scor-Tape. I stamped my sentiment from Altenew’s “Paint A Flower: Daffodil” stamp set using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink and trimmed it down in to a thin sentiment strip, framing that with some black card also. I popped my sentiment up on my panel using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape and adhered my panel to my card base.

Birthday Card Using Lawn Fawn’s “Year Ten” Stamp Set!

Hello lovelies!
This week I’m sharing a birthday card using Lawn Fawn’s “Year Ten” stamp set! I love the cute little cacti and the punny sentiment!
12
I cut a panel from white card stock using the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts. I used the “Candy Store” stencil from Heffy Doodle at an angle on my panel and blended Scattered Straw Distress Oxide Ink over it. I removed the stencil and splattered some water over it with a paintbrush, cleaning up any excess water with a paper towel. I masked off the white portion of my panel with some post-it tape and splattered the stencilled part with green and yellow metallic watercolour paint. Once this was dry I stamped my sentiment using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink and wrapped some natural jute twine around my panel, adhering it on the back.
3
I used my Misti stamping tool to stamp my images on white card stock using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I coloured them using my alcohol markers, stamped the cheeks on one of them using Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink, added highlights and details with a white gel pen and fussy cut them out. I cut a small panel using the “Double Stitched Polygons” Honey Cuts from Honey Bee Stamps and blended it with Scattered Straw and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Ink. I popped both of my images up on the polygon using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape.
45
I adhered my polygon over the twine with 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I cut a black panel using the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to frame my panel and adhered both of my panels together and to my card base using Scor-Tape.

Birthday Card Using Waffle Flower’s “Pawsome” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
I’m taking a break from the Christmas cards this week to share a birthday card using Waffle Flower’s “Pawsome” stamp set! We’ve all forgotten a birthday or sent a card a little afterwards, so it’s always handy to have one of these cards in your stash for these occasions!
1
I placed some white card stock in my Misti stamping tool and stamped my images from the set using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I coloured them with my alcohol markers, added details with a white gel pen and fussy cut them out.
23
I cut a polaroid photo frame using Avery Elle’s “Photo Mat Elle-Ments” die set from white card stock. I used Broken China, Twisted Citron, Candied Apple and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Inks to stamp some of the smaller images from the set in a random pattern on the frame. I took another piece of white card stock and blended it with Broken China and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Inks, splattered it with some water and once dry I adhered my frame to the background using Scor-Tape before trimming the edges down to size.
5.jpg
I used my Misti stamping tool and Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink to stamp both parts of my sentiment and trimmed them down to size. I framed my sentiments using black card stock so they would pop more on the card.
6.jpg7.jpg
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 die from the set. I cut two thin strips of black card stock and adhered them diagonally across my white panel using Scor-Tape. I covered my black lines with post-it tape while I splattered the white areas of my panel using Broken China, Twisted Citron and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Inks and set it aside to dry. Once dry, I popped my polaroid frame, characters and sentiments up using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I framed my panel with the black panel I cut earlier and adhered to my card base using Scor-Tape.

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.

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.

Halloween Card Using Mama Elephant’s “Little Boo Agenda” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
I’m a sucker for all things Halloween, it’s my favourite holiday out of them all! So this year I’m getting ready for it a little early with Mama Elephant’s “Little Boo Agenda” stamp set!
23
I used my Misti to stamp out the entire set (twice! I don’t joke around when it comes to Halloween!) using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink and coloured them with my alcohol markers. I added some highlights and details with a white gel pen and fussy cut them out. I chose the three ghosts I wanted to use for this card and set the rest aside for other projects.
14
I used Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut a panel from white card stock (I also used the largest of these dies to cut a black base panel which you’ll see later) and Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” Honey Cuts to cut out three small circles. I stamped one of the small candies from the set in a random pattern on each of the circles with Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink and coloured them purple and green with my alcohol markers.
67
I splattered my white panel using Twisted Citron, Dusty Concord and Black Soot Distress Oxide Inks. Once the panel was dry I used a smaller die from Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut out the centre of my splattered panel and a white panel. I adhered my splattered frame on to my black panel and inlaid my white panel using Scor-Tape. I placed my three circles down the centre to guide where I wanted my sentiments to be each time and used my Misti to stamp them one by one.
58
I popped each ghost up on the circles using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape, I also used the foam tape to place my circles down the centre of my panel and adhered my panel to my card base using Scor-Tape.

Birthday Card Using Mama Elephant’s “Big News” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
Today I’m sharing a birthday card using the adorable “Big News” stamp set from Mama Elephant! I love that this set comes with so many sentiments so it can be used for all different occasions!
12
I used my Misti stamping tool to stamp my images using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink and coloured them with my alcohol markers. I added some highlights and details with a white gel pen before fussy cutting them out.
4
I used the “Watercolor Stripes” stencil from Altenew with Broken China and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Inks to create what is going to be the background of my panel. I distressed my panel using my distress sprayer and splattered it with Pine Needles Distress Oxide Ink.
75
I used the Mama Elephant “Framed Tags Waverly” Creative Cuts to create a window from white card stock and trimmed down my background to fit behind it. I adhered the two together using Scor-Tape.
6.jpg
I adhered my balloons flat to my background with Scor-Tape and my characters with 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape to give some dimension. Once everything was in place I adhered my panel to my card base with Scor-Tape.
