Dry Embossing with Cover Dies | Pink and Main Stamps

Hello everyone,

Today I’m sharing a few cards I made by dry embossing with cover dies and adding one image as the focal point of the card.

For the first card, I used a Waffle Flower Sun Sunshine Panel and dry embossed it onto a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock.

I combined the brightly ink blended sun panel with an adorable platypus image from Koalaty Friend by Pink and Main stamps. And embellished the card with Kiss Me Clay Hearts by Honey Bee Stamps.

Platypus: E49, E47, E44, E43
W9, W7, W5

The second card features Stargazer Backdrop die by Heffy Doodle and the Magical Unicorns image by Pink and Main.

For a little extra sparkle on this card, I added a sparkling embossing powder to the starts before ink blending with Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink.

Copic combination:

Unicorn: W00, W1, W2
Mane: V17, V15, V12
Cheeks: R30

And finally for the last example, I first ink smooshed several shades of blue Distress Oxide ink onto a piece of watercolor paper. After the panel was completely dry, I dry embossed the panel with Lawn Fawn’s Rainy Backdrop. To define the embossed rain drops, I added glitter ink to each rain drop and when dry, sparkled and shined over the entire panel.

The image I used for this card is by Pink and Main called Rain Frogs, which I Copic colored. I also added a couple of swirly clouds by Heffy Doodle to finish off this card.

Scrapping For Less: FOTM February 2019 Card Kit | Whip it Up | 4 Cards from 1 Kit

Hello everyone,

Today I’m sharing the four cards I made using the Scrapping For Less: February Flavor of the Month Card Kit. This kit was all about baking sweets and love.

Card 1 – Collection One – Sketch 1

For my first card, I used the adorable Baking Marci stamp from La La Land Crafts as the main focal point image. After stamping her on Neenah 80lb. with Memento Tuxedo ink, I used my Copic markers to color up the image and a stitched rectangle die to cut out the panel.

Color combinations:

Skin: E04, E11, E21, E00, E000
Hair: E13, E15, E08, E09, E18

Apron: RV32, RV91, RV93
Shoes: E30, E31, E33, E35
Bowl: C7, C5, C3, C1

Card 2 – Collection Two – Sketch 2

For the second card, I followed sketch two and used Baking Luka stamp from La La Land Crafts. After coloring the image with my Copic markers, I die cut the panel using a stitched rectangle die. I decided to give the Life Changing Blender Brushes by Picket Fence a try and was so amazingly impressed at the way they add ink onto cardstock. This cardstock is not the most ideal paper for ink blending but the brush blended the ink so smoothly, it literally went on like butter.

Apron: R02, R05, R08
Tray: C7, C5, C3
Cookies: E31, E33

Card 3 – Collection Three – Sketch 3

For this card, I wanted to create a single layer stamped image of three pies with the stamp in this collection. I made a quick mask using post-it full adhesive notes and added it over the stamped pie in the foreground to create the illusion of 3-dimensional pies.

Color combination:

Pies: E35, E34, E33, E31
Tin: C5, C3, C1

 

Card 4 – Collection Four – Sketch 4

And finally, for the last card I pulled out my Faber-Castell Polychromos Colored Pencils to color up the cute mouse from the stamp set by Scrapping For Less.

Lawn Fawn | Fancy Lattice Backdrop and Layered Butterflies Dies | Rainbow Cards

Hi everyone,

Today’s projects are all about rainbow and feature two of the new products from the latest Lawn Fawn release just in time for spring.

Lawn Fawn Fancy Lattice Backdrop and Lawn Fawn Layered Butterflies Die combined to create Rainbow cards with Distress and Distress Oxide inked backgrounds.
Lawn Fawn Fancy Lattice Backdrop and Lawn Fawn Layered Butterflies Die combined to create Rainbow cards with Distress and Distress Oxide inked backgrounds.

I created two similar cards in the design but totally different in approach. For the first card, I created an ink blended background using Distress Inks in Picked Raspberry, Spun Sugar, Evergreen Bough and Peacock Feathers.

Lawn Fawn Fancy Lattice Backdrop and Lawn Fawn Layered Butterflies Die combined to create Rainbow cards with Distress and Distress Oxide inked backgrounds.

Using the Lattice Backdrop die by Lawn Fawn, I die cut a panel of black cardstock which I overlaid onto the ink blended background.

For the focal point images on this card, I die cut the butterflies from vellum and the outline from watercolor cardstock which had been colored using Finetec Pearlescent Watercolors.

For the second card, I created another rainbow background this time using several colors of Distress Oxide Inks. Starting with a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock, I ink blended Picked Raspberry, Carved Pumpkin, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron and Mermaid Lagoon in stripes of bold color.

Once the panel was dry, I used the Fancy Lattice Backdrop, this time on the rainbow background panel overlaid on top of a piece of black cardstock. The butterflies on this card were die cut from black cardstock and bits and pieces from the previously die cut watercolor butterfly.

Craftin Desert Diva | Pot of Gold | Altering image stamps | St. Patrick’s Day Card

Hello everyone,

Today I am sharing an adorable St. Patrick’s Day inspired card featuring Craftin Desert Diva’s Pot of Gold stamp set.

Craftin Desert Diva Pot of Gold stamp set colored with Copic markers set against a cloud background made by ink blending with Distress Oxide inks in Mowed Lawn and Lucky Clover, St. Patricks’ Day card.

First, I stamped out my images and slightly altered the Troll Girl’s rainbow. I wanted to create the illusion that she was sliding down the rainbow from above, but the original image ended the Rainbow at a point and that was what I wanted to change.

Using my Misti stamping tool to help me, I inked up the image and simply wiped off the lines I wanted to change. I did stamp the image a couple of times, which was easy because of the Misti stamping tool.

Then I used an E.K. Tools Journaling Pen to simply draw in the lines I envisioned for the rainbow. After Copic coloring all of the images, I used my ScanNCut to die cut all of the images.

Craftin Desert Diva Pot of Gold stamp set colored with Copic markers set against a cloud background made by ink blending with Distress Oxide inks in Mowed Lawn and Lucky Clover, St. Patricks’ Day card.

Working on the background, I used a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock to ink blend and create green clouds with an MFT Stencil and Distress Oxide inks in Mowed Lawn and Lucky Clover.

To finish my card, I popped up the focal point images and the sentiment on fun foam and added a frame die cut out of white cardstock using a Craftin’ Desert Diva’s Inside Scalloped Rectangle Dies.

Check out the video below for all of the details on creating this card.

Penny Black | Piece of My Heart Valentine’s Day card | 2019 Valentine’s Day Series Card 3

Hi everyone,

Today I’m sharing another Valentine’s Day card featuring Penny Black’s Key to My Heart stamp set. I used two of the main images from the stamp set to create this very soft and cutesy card.

Penny Black Key to my Heart stamp colored with Copic Markers and stencil inked background with MFT Cloud Stencil and Spun Sugar Distress Oxide ink Valentine’s Day card.

I stamped my little stuffed animal image onto white smooth cardstock using Memento Tuxedo dye ink and colored him in with my Copic markers.

I used E31, E33, E35 and E37 for the main color of his body and brought in just a little E39 to darken up the shadow areas. Then I added a little E50 and E53 for the patch across his eye and finished the image by dotting all four of the colors to create a textured fur look.

Penny Black Key to my Heart stamp colored with Copic Markers and stencil inked background with MFT Cloud Stencil and Spun Sugar Distress Oxide ink Valentine’s Day card.

For the background, I stenciled a soft cloud look by using an MFT stencil and Spun Sugar Distress Oxide ink onto a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock.

Once I finished inking the background, I cut the cloud panel down to 4 ¼ by 5 ½ and stamped the heart image directly on the background panel. I did color in the hearts using various shades of pink and red for some interest.

And finally I used an Altenew Fine Frame Cover dies to add a nice think black frame around my card that is slightly smaller than the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

Scrapping For Less: FOTM December 2018 Card Kit | Arctic Animals | 4 Cards from 1 Kit

Hello everyone,

Today I’m sharing the cards I made using the Scrapping For Less: December 2018 Flavor of the Month Card Kit called Animals in the Arctic. This has to be my most favorite kit thus far. It features all of my most favorite animals in the Arctic and as a bonus, the color of the kit is predominantly purple in color. Which is definitely my favorite! And now onto the cards.

Each card is created with the contents of one of the collections and follows the suggested sketch provided on the Scrapping For Less website here.

Sadly, the kit is sold out for the banana split level but there seems to be an option for the double dip kit or the Ala Carte products.

Scrapping For Less December 2018 FOTM Card Animals in the Arctic featuring from collection four: Arctic Animals by LDRS and Arctic Snowfall by LDRS patterned paper.

Card 1 – Collection One – Sketch # 4

For my first card, I used the super adorable polar bear (happens to be my most favorite Arctic animal) and followed sketch number four. I combined the collection one stamp with the Christmas Tree stencil to create a nighttime winter inspired scene.

I colored the bear using Copic markers, white heat embossed the sentiment and added the beautiful patterned paper to complete this card.

Card 2 – Collection Two – Sketch # 2

For the second card, I followed sketch two and decided to try my hand at monochromatic coloring of the super sweet penguin by Stamping Bella.

Card 3 – Collection Three – Sketch #3

For this and the last card of the kit, I created one-layer mini scenes, which happens to be one of my most favorite techniques in creating cards. The third card features two of the most adorable Arctic animals floating on an iceberg. I used my Copic markers to  color the entire scene including the water and the sky. As a final touch I added snow with a white gel pen because it would snow in the Arctic!

Card 4 – Collection Four – Sketch #1

And finally for the last card for this kit, I stamped the sweet momma and baby fox from the Arctic Animals stamp by LDRS on Grapesicle  cardstock and used my Fabre-Castell Polychromos Colored Pencil that I got from my beautiful sister for Christmas. This is my favorite card I made from this kit!

Valentine’s Day Series 2019 | SFL Arctic Sentiment Stamp | Lawn Fawn Polk Heart Backdrop

Hello everyone,

The first Valentine’s Day card of this year, based on the current Scrapping For Less Facebook Group Sketch Challenge turned out pretty adorable.

Scrapping For Less Arctic Sentiments Stamp combined with Lawn Fawn Polka Heart Backdrop die colored with Copic Markers and ink blended background with Distress Oxide inks, Valentine’s Day Card.

I combined the moose stamp from Scrapping for Less and the polka heart backdrop from Lawn Fawn to create this not-so-traditional Valentine’s Day card.

First, I began by working on the background by ink blending Fired Brick and Candied Apple Distress Oxide inks on to a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock. I then die cut the heart backdrop and set the panel aside to work on the focal images.

Scrapping For Less Arctic Sentiments Stamp combined with Lawn Fawn Polka Heart Backdrop die colored with Copic Markers and ink blended background with Distress Oxide inks, Valentine’s Day Card.

For my little moose to look a vee bit more festive, I hand drew in hearts hanging from his antlers and used my Copic markers to color him in.

Color Combination

Antlers: E55, E57, E59
Head/body: E33, E35, E37, E39
Nose/beard/belly: E35, E33, E31, E30
Hooves: W7, W5, W3

To assemble the card, I adhered the hearts panel to a white A2 sized card base, added a strip of patterned paper across the bottom and added my sentiment on top of two hearts.

Here is the entire process of the card I made!

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

Your Next Stamp Huggles Christmas Star ~ Zig Clean Color Real Brush ~ Christmas Card

Hey everyone,

It’s been a hectic two weeks around here, hence the lack of posts and participation in the card challenges that I love so much.
But I’m finally finished with the project that took me away from my craft time and now I can get back in to my happy place to create some cards.
This card was inspired by Your Next Stamps’ Sketch or Color Challenge # 76. This week I choose to do the color challenge with this one layer card.

Your Next Stamp Huggles Christmas Star colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and Distress ink background handmade Christmas card.

I did not intentionally set out to make a one layer card (originally, I wanted to use an evergreen trees die in the background) but the best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry, so they say!
I started by stamping the images onto a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock using Versafine Onyx black ink and masking it using Molotow art masking liquid.
I have to say that I was not a 100% happy with this product when I removed it as it left some of the blue residue onto the image. Perhaps it’s a user error and I will try another time before I make up my mind.
I wanted to create a wintery scene background and used my favorite distress inks for the night time sky and added a spritz or two of the Shimmer Sparkle spritz for an all over sparkle. I finished the background with splatter of diluted white paint to mimic snow.
I used the Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers to color my images and very little water as I had to cover up some of the blue residue left by the masking pen.

Colors I used:
Bear: 068 Deep Brown, 065 Mid Brown and 072 Beige
Scarf: 029 Geranium Red and 022 Carmine Red
Gingerbread man: 072 Beige
Shoes/bow 032 Persian Blue
Hat: 022 Carmine Red
Star: 051 Lemon Yellow

Your Next Stamp Huggles Christmas Star colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and Distress ink background handmade Christmas card.

To put this card together, I cut the main panel using a stitched rectangle die and adhered it to a white A2 sized card base.
The sentiment I used is from the same stamp set and I die cut it with a banner die after stamping it with Versafine Onyx black ink. And that will complete this simple yet I think stunning Christmas card!
I followed the Color Challenge on this card and hope that I made a card that inspired you.

As always thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!
