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.

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

Hey lovelies! Happy Easter!
This week I’m sharing a simple friendship card, I love the “Mix Tape” stamp set from Concord & 9th, it’s perfect for any music lover!
2
I cut a panel from white card stock using the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and secured it in my Misti stamping platform using the magnets. I stamped the layer that is used to colour within the lines of the Mix Tape stamps to stamp my pattern in Iced Spruce and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink. When I had finished stamping my pattern I stamped my sentiment using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink and cut my sentiment strip down to size. I adhered my sentiment to the bottom right of my panel using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape.
1
I used the largest of the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut a black panel to frame my patterned panel.
3.jpg
I adhered my panels together using 1/2″ Scor-Tape.
4.jpg
It was at this point I felt like it looked too clean and simple for my liking, so I masked off any areas I didn’t want to get splatter on with some Post-It Tape. I used Broken China and Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink to splatter my panel. Once the ink splatters were dry I adhered my panel to my card base using Scor-Tape and added some Ebony Black Nuvo Drops for embellishment.

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.

Get Well Soon Card Using Lawn Fawn’s “Get Well Before ‘N Afters” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
With all of the cold weather we’ve been having it seems it’s germ season! Almost everyone I know has the cold/flu (myself included!) so this week I thought I’d share a simple get well soon card to send to your loved ones while they’re a little under the weather!
1.jpg
I stamped the cute sick whale from Lawn Fawn’s “Get Well Before ‘N Afters” stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured it with my alcohol markers. I used a white gel pen to add some highlights as well as dotted details to the whale’s cheeks before fussy cutting my image out.
2.jpg3.jpg4
I cut a panel from white card stock using the second largest die from Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts. I covered the top half of my panel with some post it tape so I could use a stencil on the lower half without marking the top area of my panel. I used the Altenew “Halftone” Stencil and Iced Spruce Distress Oxide ink to blend the bottom half of my panel to create the pattern at the bottom. Once I was happy with the stencilling, I removed the post it tape from the top and used it to cover the pattern the stencil had created. I used Broken China and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink, mixed them with water on my glass craft mat and splattered the top half of my panel with both ink colours.
56
Once the ink splatter was dry I wrapped two pieces of twine around my panel just above the pattern on the bottom and adhered them to the back. I took a small strip of white card stock and stamped my sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black ink. I popped up my whale just above the top piece of twine and my sentiment on the bottom half of my panel using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape.
7.jpg8.jpg
I cut another panel from white card stock using the largest of the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts this time and blended the edges using Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress Oxide ink. I used 1/2″ Scor-Tape to adhere both of my panels together and on to my card base.

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!
1.jpg2.jpg
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!
345.jpg
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.
67.jpg
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.

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.
