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.

Two Cards Using Avery Elle’s “Sweetest” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
This week I thought I’d share two cards I made using Avery Elle’s “Sweetest” stamp set! As we had a bit of a heat wave recently I thought it would be fun to play around with these cute ice lollies and ice cream images!
First Card:
1
I stamped two of the ice cream images out using my Misti with Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink and coloured them with my alcohol markers, I added highlights and details with a white gel pen before fussy cutting them out.
2.jpg3.jpg4
I cut two panels from white card stock using the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts. I used Heffy Doodle’s “Candy Store” stencil with Broken China and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Inks to create my front panel. I blended the second panel with Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Ink and sprayed it with my distress sprayer. I used one of the dies from Lawn Fawn’s “Lacy Heart Stackables” to create my window in my blue and white panel.
56
I used one of the dies from Lawn Fawn’s “Shadow Box Card” die set to cut my sentiment panel, running the top of it through again to partially die cut it to size. I secured it in my Misti and stamped my sentiment using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I adhered my panels together with 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape before popping my images and sentiment up with foam tape also. I cut a panel from black card stock using the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and adhered my front panel to it and then to my card base using Scor-Tape. I added some light blue Nuvo drops for embellishment.

Second Card:
78910.jpg
I cut a panel 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 ice lollies in a pattern going across the top of the panel and masked them with masking paper. I blended the edges of the panel using Broken China Distress Oxide Ink and the centre with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink to give it an ombre effect. I distressed the panel with some water, once it was dry I peeled off the masks. I cut away a section of the panel, keeping the bottom part of it. I coloured my images and added highlights with a white gel pen. I cut another panel from white card stock using the same die and blended it with Carved Pumpkin and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide ink before distressing that also. I lined up where I wanted my sentiment to be on the orange panel, secured it in my Misti and stamped it with Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I wrapped some blue and white twine around my bottom blue panel before adhering both of the blue panels to my orange panel with 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I framed it with a panel cut from black card stock like in the previous card and adhered to my card base using Scor-Tape.

Just Because Card Using Mama Elephant’s “Little Panda Agenda” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
I’m a little late with my post this week, my apologies! However I’m here today to share this card using Mama Elephant’s “Little Panda Agenda” stamp set with you all!
1.jpg2.jpg
I used my Misti stamping tool to stamp out the entire set of adorable pandas using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I coloured them with my alcohol markers, added some highlights and details using a white gel pen and fussy cut them out. I cut two panels from white card stock using Mama Elephant’s “Framed Tags Waverly” Creative Cuts and used Heffy Doodle’s “UnbeLEAFable” stencil to ink blend my larger panel with Pine Needles Distress Oxide Ink. I splattered my larger panel with gold metallic watercolour paint and set it aside to dry. I used the window die from Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative cuts to create my window in my smaller panel.
34.jpg
I chose my sentiment from Mama Elephant’s “Dragon Wishes” stamp set and stamped it below my window using my Misti and Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I doubled up my 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape for more height, adhered my smaller panel to my larger panel first then adhered all of my pandas in to place. I used Scor-Tape to adhere my panel to my card base.

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.

Sending Hugs With Waffle Flower’s “Group Hug” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
I’m back after a two week break to share a card I made using Waffle Flower’s “Group Hug” stamp set! The images in this stamp set are absolutely adorable, I couldn’t resist that sweet giraffe!
1.jpg
I started by using my Misti stamping platform to stamp out the large image of all the animals hugging with Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I coloured it with my alcohol markers, added details with a white gel pen and fussy cut it out. The image is pretty large so it definitely takes up the majority of your card!
2
I cut a panel from white card stock using the largest of the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts from Mama Elephant. I used the same die to cut the bottom of my image also so the finished result would be cohesive.
3.jpg
I blended over the Heffy Doodle “Dottie Lottie” stencil with Broken China and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Inks on to my white panel to create my background. I used my distress sprayer to distress the circles and splattered my panel with the same two ink colours to give it more texture.
4
Once my background panel had dried, I used my Misti once again to line up my sentiments and stamp them on to my panel using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I popped my image up using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape and adhered my panel to my card base using Scor-Tape.

Birthday Card Using Heffy Doodle’s “Oh Crumbs” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
It was my mum’s birthday on Friday, she’s just as obsessed with dogs as I am so what better set to use for her card than the adorable “Oh Crumbs” stamp set from Heffy Doodle?! As soon as I saw this set I knew it was a must have, the corgis are just the sweetest and I love how you even have the option for spinner cards with the front and back end of one of them!
12.jpg
Any time I get a new stamp set I always start by stamping the entire thing out so I have plenty to colour before deciding which images I want to work with, I use my Misti to do this as I find it’s quick and easy to stamp an entire set out at once. I coloured up one of the corgis and some of the extras with my alcohol markers. I added some white highlights and details with a gel pen before fussy cutting them out.
3
I used the largest scalloped stitched die from Mama Elephant’s “Framed Tags” Waverly Creative Cuts to cut a panel from heavy weight white card stock. I blended my background over the Altenew “Watercolor Stripes” Stencil, using Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink on the outside edges and blending Spun Sugar Distress Oxide ink in the centre. I sprayed my panel lightly with my distress sprayer and cleaned up the excess water with a paper towel.
45
I cut a circle from white card stock using Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” Honey Cuts and lightly blended the edges with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink. I secured my circle in to my Misti and prepared it with my powder tool applicator. I stamped the “Oh Crumbs!” part of my sentiment directly on to my circle, coated it in clear embossing powder and set it with my heat tool. While the melted embossing powder was still hot I covered it with embossing powder again and heat set it, to give it a smoother and more raised effect.
6
I cut a small strip of white card stock down to fit my second half of my sentiment and used Versafine Onyx Black ink once again to stamp it, however I didn’t choose to heat emboss this part.
78.jpg
I cut a panel of white card stock using the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative cuts and blending from the outside in using Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink. I adhered both of my panels together using 1/2″ Scor-Tape. I adhered my circle flat to my panel and arranged my scene on top of it. I used my 1/2″ Scor-Tape to adhere the teapot and sugar bowl before popping my other images up with 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I finished up by popping my sentiment strip up with foam tape too and adhering my panel to my card base with Scor-Tape.
P24 HD Oh Crumbs
Thanks for reading lovelies! Is there a specific stamp category you have a weakness for? For me anything with dogs or food feels like a must have, which made this one impossible to resist for me! I’ll be back next week with another card, see you then!

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.

Thanks for reading lovelies! I hope you’re all well, and if you do have the sniffles I hope you feel better soon! I’ll see you next week with another card.

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.

Cute ‘You’re the pick of the patch’ Halloween Card Using Newton’s Nook “Boo-tiful Night” set!

Hey lovelies!
I’m well in the spooky spirit and back with another Halloween card using Newton’s Nook “Boo-tiful Night” set! These kitties are just too cute I can’t get enough of them! Halloween stamps are my weakness, especially when they have pumpkins!
40407557_228980391128188_7015983993191399424_n
I coloured these images using my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, added rosy cheeks on the grey cats using a pink coloured pencil and finished up by adding some highlights using my white gelly roll pen. I fussy cut the images out by hand and moved on to my panel.
40566535_1176043342537479_8450729724069543936_n.jpg40400218_184070099062553_4227284272181936128_n
I cut some black card stock down to size using my guillotine trimmer. I used the Flying Bats stencil from Newton’s Nook to blend Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxide ink on to my panel, when I removed the stencil I sprinkled some clear embossing powder over the bats and set with my heat tool to give it a textured look and feel. I cut my window from my panel using Craftin Desert Divas Inside Scalloped Circle dies and removed the scalloped part so I was left with the stitched circle.
40400275_237081580308551_7666754826541203456_n40464201_1209811749159419_2182684886425403392_n.jpg
I cut my grass using the Outdoor Landscape dies from Craftin Desert Divas and ink blended it with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink, and I used the Hill Scene 2 Stencil to blend some Twisted Citron Distress Oxide ink on to my background panel to create my clouds. I distressed the background panel with my Distress sprayer, splattered it with more Twisted Citron ink using a paintbrush and dried it before prepping it with my powder tool applicator. I stamped my sentiment and the bat using Versafine Onyx Black ink, coated it in clear embossing powder and set it with my heat tool. I adhered everything in to place and finished my panel using some orange ribbon, as well as some black and white twine. I blended some Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxide ink over the edges of some white card stock slightly larger than my panel to frame my panel and adhered everything to my card base using score tape and double sided foam tape.
