Two Cards Using Hero Arts’ “Fresh Citrus” Bold Prints Stamp!

Hello lovelies!
This week I’m sharing two cards I made using the Hero Arts “Fresh Citrus” Bold Prints background stamp! I love these stamps, they make it easy to produce multiple cards!
124
I cut a panel from white card stock using the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts. I used my Misti stamping tool to stamp the background on to my panel with Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink, making sure to remove the foam from my Misti beforehand. I stamped a small portion on a small piece of scrap card stock I had left over from a previous project also, so I could colour and fussy cut one of the lemon’s from it to use as an accent later on. I coloured all of the images using alcohol markers and highlighted them with a white gel pen.
35
I used Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” to cut a window from my background and set the circle aside for a second card. I adhered blue and white twine to the back of my window panel so it would show only through the circle.
67
I cut a panel the same size as my background and also a slightly smaller one using the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts. I lined up where I wanted my sentiment to go within my circle and using my Misti I stamped it using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I paired stamps from Mama Elephant’s “Sweetest Greetings” and Heffy Doodle’s “Yappy Happy Mail” stamp sets. I popped my window panel up on the sentiment panel using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape, popped up my extra lemon within my circle also and adhered my panel to my card base using Scor-Tape.

For my second card I popped my patterned circle up on my white panel I cut previously using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I wrapped twine around the bottom of my panel this time, adhering it on the back once again. I cut a panel from black card stock using the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to frame my panel. I stamped my sentiment from Waffle Flower’s “Bear Hugs” stamp set on to a scrap piece of white card stock, trimmed it in to a banner and popped it up across my circle. I adhered both 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.

Love Themed Card Using Waffle Flower’s “Sending Love” Stamp Set!

Hello lovelies!
Now with the holidays over we can sometimes start to feel a little lost, not knowing what to really create for next! I’ve decided to start on some Valentine’s Day/Love themed cards to get over the holiday blues. Starting with the adorable “Sending Love” stamp set from Waffle Flower!
123.jpg
I cut two panels from white card stock using the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts. In one of the white panels I cut a heart window using the medium die from Lawn Fawn’s “Outside In Stitched Hearts Stackables” dies, I’ll be using this window as a stencil to blend on to my second panel. I placed Honey Bee Stamps’ “Stained Glass Background” stencil over my white panel and secured it in place before lining up my panel with the heart window on top of that. I used Worn Lipstick and Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Inks to blend over my stencils, creating a jewel effect on the heart. I removed the stencils and cut another small heart window on a smaller piece of card stock, placed it over my panel slightly overlapping my larger heart, I blended it with Shaded Lilac and a little Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Inks.
456
I wrapped some blue and white twine around my panel, adhering it on the back with some washi tape. I secured my panel in my Misti stamping tool and stamped my sentiment just above the twine using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black Ink. I stamped my image using my Misti and Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink once again and coloured it with my alcohol markers. I added highlights and details with a white gel pen before fussy cutting it out and adhering it to my panel with 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. I adhered both panels 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.

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.

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.

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

Hey lovelies!
This week I’m sharing another birthday card with you, this time using Waffle Flower’s “We Herd” stamp set!
12
I started by stamping out the group of rabbits in my Misti stamping tool using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink and colouring them with my alcohol markers. I used a white gel pen to add highlights and details before fussy cutting them out. I used Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut three panels from white card stock, two of the second largest size and one of the largest. I cut a section from the middle of one of the smaller panels. I stamped the top and bottom sections with the confetti stamps using Iced Spruce Distress Oxide Ink.
43
I took the bottom section and secured it in my Misti, stamping my sentiment on to it using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink once again. I blended the middle section of the smaller panel with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink and the edges of the larger panel with Broken China Distress Oxide Ink.
56
I adhered my two sections and the bunnies tucked in to the bottom with Scor-Tape. I adhered this to my larger panel and on to my card base.

Two Cards Using Waffle Flower’s “Office Birthday” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
This week I’m sharing two cards using Waffle Flower’s “Office Birthday” stamp set, both relatively simple to make!
P33 WF Office Birthday 2
I was instantly drawn to these adorable hamsters as soon as I saw this set! I had to make a birthday card using them and decided to go for a more masculine feel, keeping the hamsters as the pop of colour in the corner!
I stamped my images using my Misti stamping platform with Gina K Amalgam Jet Black ink. I coloured them with my alcohol markers, added some details and highlights with a white gel pen and fussy cut them out. I cut two panels using Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative cuts, the larger from black card stock and the smaller from white. I used the “Candy Store” stencil from Heffy Doodle, turned it on it’s side slightly so the corner reached across my white panel. I masked off the rest of my panel where I didn’t want to get ink before blending Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink over my stencil. I sprayed my panel with my distress sprayer, cleaned up the excess water before splattering my panel with the same ink. I cut a small panel using Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Polygons” Honey Cuts from white card and adhered my hamsters to it as I would be using this for my focal point. I adhered the two back ones using Scor-Tape and the middle with some 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I prepared a strip of black card stock with my powder tool applicator, stamped my sentiment using Versamark ink and heat embossed it using Lawn Fawn’s white embossing powder. I adhered my black strip across my panel using Scor-Tape and popped my polygon with my hamsters up on the bottom left using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I adhered my panels together and on to a card base before finishing with some Ebony Black Nuvo drops.
P33 WF Office Birthday 1
For my second card I cut two panels once again using the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts from Mama Elephant. I stamped the plant image across my panel using my Misti stamping tool and Gina K’s Amalgam Jet black ink. I created masks for all three and covered them so I could ink blend over my images. I used a piece of scrap card stock to make my own stencil for this one using Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” Honey Cuts, adhered this temporarily over my white panel and blended within the circle using Carved Pumpkin and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Ink. I sprayed the circle with my distress sprayer, cleaned up the excess water, splattered it with Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxide Ink before lifting my stencil and removing the masks from my images. I coloured my images using my alcohol markers and added highlights with a white gel pen, I drew some gold lines across the plant pots also using a metallic chalk marker. I prepared a strip of black card stock with my powder tool applicator, stamped my sentiment from the “Tiny Terrarium” stamp set from Waffle Flower using Versamark ink and heat embossed it with Lawn Fawn’s white embossing powder. I trimmed down my sentiment and popped it up under my images using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I adhered my panels together and to my card base using 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.
