Simon Says Stamp June 2018 Card Kit | Fly Me Away | 5 Cards 1 Kit

After what seems like an eternity waiting on my computer I finally got the word that it’s not fixable and am on my way to replacement. My computer had the unfortunate accident of meeting with two jumping kids, I suppose I share some of the blame for leaving it where I left it for the damage to occur.

In the meantime, to control my anxiety I sat down to create several cards using the contents of the June 2018 Simon Says Stamp card kit. It’s a beautiful kit featuring floral images and papers with a watercolor look.

I had a hard time cutting into the lovely patterned paper but I did manage to bring myself to use a few. For the first card, I made a no bulk shaker card using tulle and this beautiful feathers patterned paper that I die cut using Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle frames.  This allowed me to create the frame which I tucked the tulle under after adding some coordinating sequence. To complete this card, I stamped and embossed the sentiment onto a piece of black cardstock and added it to the top of the card.

For the second card, I again used a piece of patterned paper that I cut slightly smaller using a stitched rectangle die from MFT. I wanted a slight border of the cardstock underneath. Then I stamped the floral images and embossed them with silver embossing powder onto a piece of watercolor paper. I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to color up the images and fussy cut them out. I popped up the floral images onto foam tape and arranged them to the center of the card. For the sentiment I used one of larger stamps and added it across the entire length of the card.

For the third card, I used the purple balloon paper, which happens to be my favorite from the collection. The original intent of this card was to be the shaker card but I inadvertently cut it incorrectly and I had to come up with a plan B.
Plan B was to cut the patterned paper down to 5 1/2” by 4” leaving a small space on the sides and adhering it on top of the black and white stripped paper from my stash. To finish this card, I added the sentiment and added small strips of black cardstock to the sides for a smoother transition.

I thought I would try using the embossing folder for card four and embossed a piece of white cardstock which was cut on an angle. I took an ink blending tool and Tonic Studios Mousse in Aquamarine and with a very light hand added the mousse to the embossed cardstock. Adding a strip of the gold cardstock and embossing the sentiment completed this card.

For the final card from the June 2018 Card kit, I decided to create a card with the entire large stamp image. First, I stamped with large floral image onto a piece of watercolor cardstock and embossed it with gold embossing powder. Using the Gansai Tambi Watercolors, I colored the image with pink and green. I then fussy cut the image and added a layer of foam tape to the back of the floral image to pop it up for a little dimension. To add a little elegance to this card, I inked up the edges with VersaMark and embossed the edges with gold embossing powder.

Lawn Fawn | Dad + Me Moose family | Copic Colored | Father’s Day Card

Hello everyone,

Today I’m sharing a card I made for Father’s Day inspired by Lawn Fawnatics Sketch Challenge # 28.

Lawn Fawn Dad+Me stamp colored with Copic Markers and Distress Oxide ink background Father’s Day handmade card.

I stamped my images onto white smooth cardstock using Memento Tuxedo dye ink and colored the images using Copic markers.

Copic color combination

Daddy and baby Moose: E27, E25 and E23
Antlers: E33 and E31

Lawn Fawn Dad+Me stamp colored with Copic Markers and Distress Oxide ink background Father’s Day handmade card.

The sketch lent itself to create a scene and I thought it was perfect to bring in some of my Lawn Fawn dies to create a little forest scene for the moose family.

To frame out the scene, I used a piece of craft card stock and embossed it with a Sizzix wood grain embossing folder to tie in the entire feel of the card.

Here is the process video of how I created this adorable Father’s Day card!

That’s all for this project, I hope you found it inspiring and as always, thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

Greeting Farm Mini Remix Brewtiful ~ Spectrum Noir Markers ~ Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop ~ Second Card

Hey everyone,

I’m back with another entry card for the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog hop, you can find more information here.

The Greeting Farm Mini Remix Brewtiful stamp colored using Spectrum Noir markers handmade card.

For this card, I again used the Greeting Farm Mini Remix Brewtiful and stamped this little girl onto a piece of Spectrum Noir paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored the image with my Spectrum Noir Markers and used my scissors to fussy cut her out.

Colors I used:

Skin: FS2 and FS3
Hair: GB8, TN7 and EB5
Dress and shoes: PP5 and DR3
Cup: CT1 and CT4, I also added a bit shimmer using Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Sparkle Pen

To create the background for my card, I took a piece of watercolor paper cut down to 4” x 5.5” and used Sizzix Texture Fades Bricked Embossing folder to create a building look. Using Twinkling H2O’s in Pale Porcelain, I added a wash of color across the entire background.
To put the card together, I adhered the card panel to a pink A2 sized card base from my stash. I added the little girl with some foam adhesive for dimension, butterflies and stamped the sentiment from the stamp set to complete this card.
I’m really happy with how this card turned out and I will be entering it in the Coffee Loving blog hop for a chance to win some prizes from a group of awesome sponsors.

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

Stampendous’ Kitty birthday card

Hey everyone,

I’m back with another cute pet inspired card. This week I used Stampendous’ Pop up Kitties stamp and die set to create this super cute birthday card.

I started by stamping the image using Memento black ink and Bristol smooth cardstock. I colored the cute little kitten using my Spectrum Noir Markers.

Kittie birthday handmade card

Here is a list of the markers I used:

Kitten: TN7, TN5 and TN3
Chest fur: IG1 and then I added a little sparkle with the clear glitter Wink of Stella
Bow: IB2, IB1 and IG1.
Eyes: IB2, IB1, IG1.

To add a little interest to the card (and try out a new embossing folder), I inked up the raised image side of the embossing folder with Hero Arts Shadow Ink in the color Tide Pool, so that the color imprints on the cardstock as I ran it through my die cut machine. This technique gives me a beautiful embossed background with a little color to adhere the kitten to.

Kittie inspired handmade birthday card

I cut the embossed panel to 3.75” x 5.5” and adhered it to a piece of teal cardstock cut to 4.25” x 5.5”, so that only a bit of the side edges peeks out. Both of the pieces were then adhered to an A2 white card base.

To complete the card, I used the new Lawn Fawn Bannertastic stamp and die to cut the banner out of the same teal cardstock as the base of the card. The sentiment I used for this card comes from Lawn Fawn’s Meow you doin’ stamp set. I thought it complemented the kitten card very well.

The inside of the card needed a little something, so I added a sentiment from the same Lawn Fawn Meow you doin’ stamp set. It reads, wishing you a pawsome day.

And that completes a very kitten inspired birthday card. As always, I will list the cards for sale in my shop in the very near future.

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