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!

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.

I used the largest of the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut a black panel to frame my patterned panel.

I adhered my panels together using 1/2″ Scor-Tape.

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.

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.

Birthday Card Using Lawn Fawn’s “Be Hap-Pea” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
I’m back this week with another birthday card, I find it handy to always have a couple stashed away in case I forget or I’m too busy to sit down and create one week! This time I’m using the adorable “Be Hap-Pea” stamp set from Lawn Fawn, I love a good punny set!
5
I stamped a couple of the peas out and one of the pods using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, I used some of the adorable faces that come with the set to give them different expressions! As I planned for this to be a birthday card I made sure to stamp one wearing a party hat too. I coloured them using my alcohol markers and added some highlights and details with a white gel pen before fussy cutting them all out. I used a craft knife to cut along the middle line of the pea pod so I could adhere three of my peas inside it using Scor-Tape.
12.jpg4
I cut all of my panels from heavy weight white card stock, I used the largest of the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts from Mama Elephant for my background panel. For my focal point on my card I used the smaller scalloped die from the “Framed Tags” Waverly Creative Cuts from Mama Elephant and used one of the circle dies from Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” Honey Cuts to create the window. I used the leaf stamp from the set to stamp leaves all over my background panel with Memento Tuxedo Black ink again, coloured them with my alcohol markers and used a white gel pen to add highlights.
36
I used my Misti stamping tool to keep my scalloped panel in place and used my powder tool applicator to prep my panel. I used Versafine Onyx Black ink to stamp my sentiment, removing it from my Misti before coating it in clear embossing powder and setting the powder with my heat tool. I cut another scalloped panel from white card stock and blended it with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Ink, sprayed it with my Distress Sprayer and cleaned up the excess water. I adhered the yellow panel behind my windowed panel using Scor-Tape so my window would have the yellow background.
78
I adhered my peas in the pod and the one slightly behind it with Scor-Tape, but decided to pop the one standing on top of the pod up with 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I took my scalloped panel, adhered it to my background panel using foam tape once again so it was slightly raised and adhered to my card base.

Thanks for reading lovelies! Do you always keep a stash of birthday cards at the ready? I have to admit I’ve been pretty poor at keeping a stash myself lately, but I’m slowly building one back up! I’ll see you next week with another card!

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.
P23 LF Get Well Before n' Afters
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.

Simple Watercolour Card Using Mama Elephant’s “Flying With Friends” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
Today I’m sharing a simple card using the “Flying With Friends” stamp set from Mama Elephant! I’m guilty of always wanting to add “more” to my cards but sometimes a simple small scene is all you really need!
1.jpg23.jpg
I cut a panel from watercolour paper using the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts. I stamped the elephant on the left first using Ranger Archival Jet Black ink and created a mask for him before stamping my second elephant sitting next to him. I coloured my images and created a soft background for them using my Altenew watercolour paints. Once my paint was dry I added some highlights to my images with a white gel pen. I prepared my panel with my powder tool applicator before stamping my sentiment from Lawn Fawn’s “Let’s Toast” stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black ink to the top left of my images, I coated it in clear embossing powder and set it with my heat tool.
4.jpg5.jpg
I created a panel from white card stock using the largest of the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and ink blended it with Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Ink around the edges. I distressed my panel with my Distress Sprayer and cleaned up the excess water. Once my panel was dry I adhered my watercolour panel to the centre and adhered them 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.

Cute Valentine’s Day Card Using Mama Elephant’s “Little Bear Agenda” Stamp Set!

Hello lovelies!
This week I’m sharing a Valentine’s Day card using Mama Elephant’s “Little Bear Agenda” stamp set! I have a feeling these cuties are going to be appearing in a lot of my love themed cards this year!
1.jpg
I stamped the entire set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured them using my alcohol markers, I like to batch stamp/colour when I know I’m going to be making lots of cards with this set! I added details and highlights using a white gel pen and fussy cut my images out.
2.jpg
I cut down a piece of white card stock and used the “Halftone Stencil” from Altenew to ink it up with “Tumbled Glass” Distress Oxide Ink. I used Avery Elle’s “Photo Mat Elle-Ments” dies to cut out my polaroid photo frame from my card stock and once extra with some plain white card stock. I adhered both of the photo frames together to make it a little sturdier.
3.jpg4.jpg
I took the pieces of the scene from the white layer of the die and coloured them to create my background. I used my alcohol markers for the grass and clouds and “Tumbled Glass” Distress Oxide Ink once again for my sky. I cut some trees from Lawn Fawn’s “Shadow Box Card” dies and used my alcohol markers to colour them also. I adhered my photo frame to some white card stock the same size as the frame itself and assembled my background inside it.
5.jpg
I added my little bears and my trees to my background scene. I took a panel of white card stock slightly larger than the largest of the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts from Mama Elephant, smooshed some of the “Tumbled Glass” Distress Oxide Ink on to my glass crafting mat, sprayed it with water and placed my card stock on top making sure to dry between each layer. I repeated the process with some gold watercolour paint before cutting it with the largest of the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts. I cut a vellum layer using the largest die from the “Framed Tags” Waverly Creative Cuts by Mama Elephant to separate the background from my polaroid frame. I adhered these three layers together, stamped my sentiment from Neat and Tangled’s “Beavers Eh” stamp set in Versafine Onyx Black ink and cut it from the washi tape die in the Avery Elle “Photo Mat Elle-Ments” die set. I popped my sentiment up on the vellum using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape to match the thickness of the photo frame, adhered my panel to my card base and added some blue Nuvo Drops to finish.

Friendship Card Using Mama Elephant “Little Dog Agenda” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
Today I’m sharing with you a card I made using the Mama Elephant “Little Dog Agenda” stamp set! I love the Little Agenda sets as I feel they’re so versatile!
1
I stamped the images using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, coloured them with alcohol markers and used a white gel pen to add highlights. I wasn’t sure which of the images I wanted to use just yet, so I fussy cut a bunch of them out so I could just grab the ones I wanted when it came to assembling my card! The others can be saved for future projects.
2
I cut a panel from white card stock using the Mama Elephant “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and cut a window using the oval from Lawn Fawn’s “Shadow Box Card” dies.
3
I cut some trees from the “Shadow Box Card” dies too and coloured them using my alcohol markers.
45.jpg
I blended some “Salty Ocean” Distress Ink on to a square of white card stock larger than my window and distressed it slightly using my distress sprayer. I assembled my scene in the window first then adhered my images on top. To finish my panel I stamped my sentiment from Neat and Tangled’s “Beavers Eh” set using Versafine Onyx Black ink. I double wrapped some blue and white twine around my panel and adhered it at the back.
6.jpg
I cut a background panel from white card stock using Altenew’s “Cube Cover” die, created my card base and adhered them together using double sided tape. I popped my smaller panel up on my base using 3M Double Sided Foam Tape to finish.

Hip Hip Hoo-Ray! Cute Peekaboo Card Using Heffy Doodle “Hootiful” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
Today I’m sharing this peekaboo card I made using Heffy Doodle’s “Hootiful” stamp set along with the Mama Elephant “Framed Tags” Waverly Creative Cuts! I originally had another idea for this card, but thanks to Katrina over at Bumbleberry Papercrafts’ super speedy shipping I managed to whip this up in no time!
12
I stamped my images using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured them with my alcohol markers. I added highlights and details with my white gel pen before fussy cutting them out.
2232
I cut a panel with a peekaboo window from white card stock using two of the Mama Elephant “Framed Tag” Waverly Creative Cuts. I blended Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink over my panel, sprayed it with my Distress Sprayer and cleaned up the excess water.
4151
I cut another of the peekaboo windows from some pink polka dot patterned paper and adhered it to the inside of the flap to give it an extra finishing touch. I cut a small rectangle from white card stock using Lawn Fawn’s Shadow Box Card Dies and prepped it with my powder tool. I stamped my sentiment from Heffy Doodle’s “Hootiful” set in Versafine Onyx Black ink, coated it in clear embossing powder and set with my heat tool. I adhered this to the front of the peekaboo flap. 
6
I cut a panel from white card stock, blended Broken China and Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide ink over it to create my sky. I splattered it with white watercolour paint to give it the starry effect.
7
I cut some hills freehand from white card stock and blended Mowed Lawn Distress Ink on to them before adhering them to my background. I decided on placement for my images and adhered everything down. I created my card base by cutting two of the scalloped panels, I scored the back one and adhered the top to the other, I adhered the front panel on to the card base I created to finish.
