Lawn Fawn So Owlsome and Thanks A Bushel | Mini Scene | Copic | Teacher Card

Hello everyone,

I’ve got another super adorable teacher card this week featuring the Lawn Fawn So Owlsome stamp set paired with an older Lawn Fawn stamp set called Thanks a Bushel.

Lawn Fawn So Owlsome and Thanks a Bushel card colored with Copic Markers and ink blending background created with Distress Oxide Inks Teacher card.

I decided to make two cards one in red color combinations and one in green color combinations. To begin creating my cards, I first stamped all of the images from So Owlsome and Thanks a Bushel onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80 lb. cardstock with Memento Tuxedo black ink because they are both Copic friendly products.

Using my Copic markers I colored all of the images using the following color combinations:

Owl: E37, E35, and E31 outer part of the body.
E53, E51 and R20 on the face and belly
Cap: C9, C7, C5, C3
Apples: YG05, YG03, YG21, R39, R29, R24, G28, YG63
Barrel: E, 27, E25, E23, E21

I used the coordinating dies for each set to die cut the images out and then set them aside to work on the rest of the card.

To create the card base, I used one of the small apple stamps and randomly stamped the entire card base to create my own background. Since I used kraft cardstock for the card base, I thought I’d pull out my colored pencils and color those images in.

I wanted to create a mini scene for the images I previously colored and using several dies and Distress inks I created a sky and hill backdrop for my adorable images.

At this point, I was ready to assemble all of the elements by either popping them on foam tape for a bit of dimension or adding liquid glue and adhering them flat.

Below is a link to my YouTube Channel showing how I created these two teacher cards.

That’s all for me today, thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

Simon Says Stamp August 2018 Card Kit | 4 cards from 1 kit

Hello everyone,

Today I am sharing several techniques for the four cards I made using the contents of Simon Says Stamp August 2018 Card Kit.

Stamp August 2018 Card Kit called Mandy’s Flowers featuring rainbow watercolored Modern Rose Blooms stamp background card.
Simon Says Stamp August 2018 Card Kit called Mandy’s Flowers featuring single layer card design with the fence stamp and hand drawn flowers.
Simon Says Stamp August 2018 Card Kit called Mandy’s Flowers featuring layered patterned paper with floral image.
Stamp August 2018 Card Kit called Mandy’s Flowers featuring ink blended Modern Rose Blooms background card.

The first card I made incorporates a single image stamp with a patterned paper (happens to be my favorite) from the kit. I layered the patterned paper with a piece of craft cardstock in between to create a very vintage inspired look to this card. The stamped and colored image combined with a simple sentiment on top a piece of vellum completes this card.

The focus on the second card was a single layer card technique really to showcase the sentiment. I absolutely love the font of that sentiment. The card itself sort of has a watercolor picturesque feel with an inlay design of the card panel.

The third card I made incorporates a white heat embossed background of the Modern Rose Blooms stamp with a layer of Tattered Rose Distress Ink. The floral stamp with a sentiment are stamped and white heat embossed onto a piece of vellum which was fussy cut around the edge. Once I layered the focal point panel on top of the ink blended background, I felt as though it was blending in to the background. I never realized that you can color vellum. I only tried using my Copic Markers to go over the vellum but in the future I will use different mediums and see how it results.

For the fourth card and my favorite, I white heat embossed the background with the Modern Rose Blooms stamp this time onto a piece of watercolor cardstock. I wanted to create a rainbow card for some time and this was the perfect opportunity. Using my Prima Marketing Watercolors, I added all of the colors of the rainbow and finished the card off with a simple sentiment embossed onto a piece of black cardstock. I really wanted the focus to be on the rainbow background and I think I achieved that.

I had a lot of fun creating cards from this kit, I only wish I had more time to create but alas the day of a mom is never done and that’s all for me today! Check out the video link below to see how I created these cards. As always thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

Love from Lizi products showcase

Hey everyone,

I am finally able to sit down and write my post for a few cards I made using the Love from Lizi products. Love from Lizi is an online store in the U.K that sells card kits, mega-packs, mini-packs and other crafting products. She carries the most amazing patterned paper products, in my opinion that I’ve seen.  A few weeks ago I purchased several items and was so excited to start creating with these goodies!

I mostly choose to focus on the beautiful patterned paper and added very little embellishments. And I mostly focused on birthday cards because I needed a birthday card for my mom.

Love from Lizi Card kits, mega-packs and mini-packs crafting products for handmade card.

For this card, I used two patterned papers from the January card kit I previously purchased. The bottom wood grain paper is adhered directly to the base of an A2 size card, while the beautiful rose patterned paper is accented with stitched scallop border die from Lawn Fawn and adhered to a piece of fun foam for some added dimension. To finish this card, I die cut the sentiment from an add-on die and a butterfly from the Vintage Blooms mega-pack using copper mirror cardstock.

For card two, I used a card base from my stash because I specifically wanted a pearlized look to the card. Using a piece of patterned paper from the Vintage Blooms mega-pack, I cut the bottom of the paper using a check mark die from MFT stitched scallop basic edge set. The bird stamp, also from the Vintage Blooms mega-pack was stamped directly onto the base of the card using VersaMark and embossed with gold embossing powder. Tip to self for future, stamping onto a card with a pearlized finish is tricky. Heat embossing is not much better. I went through a few card bases before I was happy with the end result. I stamped a sentiment from the Soft Floral mini-pack and embossed it in gold to match the bird. To finish the card, I used a heart wood chip veneer, embossed it in gold and attached it as if it’s hanging from the sentiment.

My intent was to give my mom one of these two cards for her birthday BUT as I was finishing she stood looking over my shoulder and wanted to know what I was going to do with those cards.

So moving onto card three, I created this background paper by stamping a faded text background using Encore ultimate metallic gold ink. I did a little ink blending using Distress Ink Oxides in Worn Lipstick to add a touch of subtle color. Using a sticker from March card kit add-on, I added some foam squares for dimension before adding it to my card. To complete the card, I added a small butterfly sticker from the same sticker set. With this card, I felt that less is more and didn’t want to take away from the subtleness by adding any more embellishments.

And since I was on a roll, I made one more card. This time I used the butterfly stamp from Vintage Blooms mega-pack to create a background for my card by stamping it several times onto a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock and using a charcoal embossing powder. I did some ink blending again using Distress Ink Oxides in Worn Lipstick. To finish the card, I stamped a sentiment from the stamp set in Soft Floral mini-pack onto a piece of black cardstock and embossed it with white embossing powder. I added a piece of foam tape to the back of the sentiment piece and adhered it to the card.

I wanted to mention that I was in no way sponsored to write this post or that I am not an affiliate of the shop but choose to showcase Love from Lizi products because I personally use them and I absolutely adore all of the products in her shop. More information can be found at lovefromlizi.com

I hope you enjoyed the cards I made, thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

My Favorite Things Sweet Succulents ~ Stuck with me card ~ MFT Sketch Challenge

Hey everyone,

This week I thought I’d use some of the stamps I picked up at the MFT Boutique in Eustis Florida a couple of weeks ago on my trip to Orlando.

 

My Favorite Things has a ton of adorable stamp and die sets, but for this week I choose to play with the stamp set called Sweet Succulents.

My Favorite Things Sweet Succulents handmade card colored using Spectrum Noir Markers.

I stared by stamping all of my images onto some Spectrum Noir ultra-smooth premium white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo black dye ink.

Using my Spectrum Noir markers, I colored the images with the following makers:

The taller cactus: LG3, LG4, and LG5
Flowers: CR4 and CR8
The shorter cactus: CG1, CT2, and IG2
Flower: BP2, BP3 and BP5
Flower pot: BG5, BG6 and BG8

My Favorite Things Sweet Succulents handmade card colored using Spectrum Noir Markers.

To create the raised picture frame for the little cacti to sit in, I cut a piece of polka dot paper from the Dots & Stripes Valentines collection from Echo Park Paper down to 4.25”,  and then cut the square out with a stitched square scallop edge frame die from MFT.  I added a pink border for the cacti image to nest in for a little color interest.

I used a scalloped stitched edge die from the die-namics stitched scallop basic edges to cut the polka dot paper and separate the frame from the base of the card.

To cover the white background inside of the picture frame, I did a little ink blending with Distress Ink Oxides in Worn Lipstick onto a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock.

I adhered all of my pieces to an A2 size white card base and stamped my sentiment using Lawn Fawns ink in Hippo color.

My Favorite Things Sweet Succulents handmade card colored using Spectrum Noir Markers.

As I finished this card, I decided to enter it into the MFT Sketch Challenge over on their blog. Each week, a new challenge is posted with the required layout or your interpretation of the layout. I’ve got my fingers crossed that I win, since the prize is a $50 gift voucher for product in their store. And let’s be honest, who couldn’t use a little more MFT stamp and die sets.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my cards, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!
