Fuzzy Hugs Underneath Northern Lights Part 2

Hi everyone! In a previous post I shared the exact same card with you all, except I used a different color scheme. I’m really curious to hear which one you like best!

For reference, I made a video on the coloring and card making process of my previous card. So if you would like to know how you can create the card, this video will show you! And if you like watching my videos, don’t forget to subscribe to my channel.

The background of this card is created with Distress Oxide inks and I was going for a northern lights look. The colors I used are Cracked Pistachio, Tumbled Glass, and Mermaid Lagoon. To add the effect of snow, I diluted white acrylic paint and splattered it on the background. After that, I set the background aside and let it dry.

In the meantime I stamped the bears from the Fuzzy Hugs stamp set on Perfect Colouring paper and colored them with my copic markers:

  • Left bear: B93, B95, B97 , E50, E51, E53 , R22
  • Right bear: YG01, YG13, YG17, YG67, E59, E57, E35, R22

Then from white cardstock I die cut the Winter Forest and adhered it on my ink blended background. The bears I also adhered with tacky glue and grounded them by coloring the ground underneath with my copics. As a finishing touch, I added Stickles Frosted Lace to the snow.

It was really fun to create this card and I hope it gave you inspiration. Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!

Fuzzy Hugs Underneath Northern Lights

Hi everyone! I’m so in love with this Fuzzy Hugs stamp set from Mama Elephant. The critters are just so cute! I couldn’t resist creating another card with them. However, this time I’m using the bunnies who are snuggling up below a winter sky.

For the ones interested, I have made a video on the coloring and card making process. If you like watching my videos, don’t forget to subscribe to my channel.

The background of this card is created with Distress Oxide inks and I was going for a northern light look. The colors I used are Shaded Lilac, Picked Raspberry, and Mermaid Lagoon. To add the effect of snow, I diluted white acrylic paint and splattered it on the background. After that, I set the background aside and let it dry.

In the meantime I stamped the bunnies from the Fuzzy Hugs stamp set on Perfect Colouring paper and colored them with my copic markers:

  • Left bunny: W0, W2, E50, R20, RV000, RV52, RV55, BG00, BG02, BG05, BG07
  • Right bunny: C0, C3, C5, R20, BV00, BV02, BV04, B93, B95, B97

Then from white cardstock I die cut the Winter Forest and adhered it on my ink blended background. The bunnies I also adhered with tacky glue and grounded them by coloring the ground underneath with my copics. As a finishing touch, I added polka dots to the scarf of the left bunny and added Stickles Frosted Lace to the snow.

Borre The Puppy Vliegt Weg !

Hoi allemaal! Vandaag deel ik nog een kaartje met de leuke stempelset ‘Borre the Puppy’ (6410/0519) van Jocelijne Design! Een van de hondjes had zo leuk zijn staart omhoog en die was perfect voor het idee dat ik had.

Hi everyone! Today I’m sharing another card with the cute stamp set from Jocelijne Design called ‘Borre the Puppy’ (6410/0519). One of the dogs has its tail up high and this one was perfect for the idea I had in mind.

Als eerste stempelde ik het hondje en de voederbak met Memento Tuxedo Black ink en kleurde ik ze in met copic markers. Daarna knipte ik hem uit en ging ik aan de slag met het uit stansen van alle andere elementen. Het hekje, de wolken en het gras zijn van de ‘Tumble Friends Farm’ set (6002/1193). De ballonnen heb ik gemaakt met een van de ‘Tumble Friends’ (6002/1179) stansen.

First I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with my copic markers. Then I fussy cut the images and started with die cutting all the other elements. The fence, clouds, and grass are from the ‘Tumble Friends Farm’ set (6002/1193). And the balloons are made with one of the dies from the ‘Tumble Friends’ (6002/1179) set.

Vervolgens ging ik aan de slag met de Oxide inks. Voor de achtergrond heb ik Tumbled Glass en Mermaid Lagoon gebruikt. Voor het gras gebruikte ik Mowed Lawn en deze heb ik ook gebruikt voor een paar ballonnen. Voor de andere ballonnen pakte ik Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet, en Mustard Seed.

Now all the die cut elements were ready, it was time to color them. For this I used Distress Oxide inks. For the balloons I used Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet, Mustard Seed, and Mowed Lawn. For the grass I also used Mowed Lawn. And for the background I used Tumbled Glass and Mermaid Lagoon.

Nu alle elementen klaar waren kon ik ze vastplakken op de achtergrond. Dit gespikkelde papier is van het Spiffy Speckles papier pak van Lawn Fawn. Onderaan de kaart stempelde ik ‘gefeliciteerd’ met de ‘Gefeliciteerd’ set van Carlijn Design. Om het een extraatje te geven, heb ik het ge-heat embossed met clear embossing powder. Als laatste heb ik de balonnen gecoat met Wink of Stella en een aantal highlights aangebracht met een witte gel pen.

Now all the elements for the card were ready to be adhered to the card base. To frame the main scene, I used pattern paper from the Spiffy Speckles pack from Lawn Fawn. At the bottom of the card I stamped ‘gefeliciteerd’ (congratulations) and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. This sentiment is from the ‘Gefeliciteerd’ stamp set from Carlijn Design. To add some final touches, I put Wink of Stella on the balloons and applied a couple of highlights with a white gel pen.

Ik hoop dat je dit een leuk kaartje vind en het je inspiratie heeft gegeven voor het gebruiken van Jocelijne Design Producten. Tot de volgende keer!

Cute Lucky Ladybug – Jocelijne Design

Hoi allemaal! Vandaag ben ik weer terug met een vrij nieuwe set van Jocelijne Design genaamd ‘Succes’ (6002/1364). Deze set bevat super leuke klavertjes en een stans voor het woord ‘succes’.

Hi everyone! Today I’m back with a fairly new set from Jocelijne Design called ‘Succes’ (6002/1364). This set contains a number of clovers and a die for the word ‘succes’.

Als eerste ging ik aan de slag met het maken van het lieveheersbeestje met de ‘Tumble Friends’ (6002/1179) set. In de werkbeschrijving op de website van Jocelijne kan je precies vinden wat je nodig hebt om dit schattige lieveheersbeestje te maken. Voor het klavertje en het woord ‘Succes’ heb ik de ‘Succes’ set (6002/1364) gebruikt. Op de hartjes van het klavertje heb ik Stickles Star Dust gedaan om het een mooi glitter effect te geven. Voor de 2 bloemetjes heb ik de  ‘Tumble Friends Farm’ set (6002/1193) gebruikt.

First I die cut and assembled the ladybug which I made with the ‘Tumble Friends’ (6002/1179) set. If you would like to know which dies you need to create this cute ladybug, head over to the website of Jocelijne. For the clover and the word ‘Succes’ I used the ‘Succes’ set (6002/1364). To add a lot of sparkle to the clover heart and the sentiment, I put Stickles Star Dust on top. Then finally I die cut 2 flowers with the  ‘Tumble Friends Farm’ set (6002/1193) set.

Voor de achtergrond heb ik 2 verschillende paperpads gebruikt: Spring Fling van Lawn Fawn, en Party Patterns van MFT. Dit zijn super vrolijke patroontjes die heel goed samen gaan! Vervolgens kon ik alles plakken op de achtergrond. Om het kaartje helemaal af te maken heb ik nog highlights aangebracht op een aantal elementen en Glossy Accents aangebracht op de wangetjes van het lieveheersbeestje.

To create the background, I chose 2 pattern papers from the Spring Fling pack from Lawn Fawn and the Party Patterns pack from MFT. These are really fun patterns that go very well together and really compliment the cute ladybug with her clover. After adhering all elements to the background, I made some final touches by adding highlights with a white gel pen and adding Glossy Accents on the cheeks of the ladybug.

Ik hoop dat je dit een leuk kaartje vind en het je inspiratie heeft gegeven voor het gebruiken van Jocelijne Design Producten. Tot de volgende keer!

I hope you like this card and it gave you inspiration for using the Jocelijne Design products. Thank you for stopping by and see you next time!

Lawn Fawn Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone! Today’s card is inspired by the current Lawn Fawnatics challenge. The stamp set featured in this card is the Snow Bunnies set which was part of stamptember this year. For this christmas card I decided to go with non-traditional colors and I love the outcome!

First I stamped all the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with copic markers. For the background I blended Distress Oxide ink Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers, Mermaid Lagoon with a blending brush on smooth white cardstock. Then I diluted white acrylic paint with water and made splatters on the background to mimic snow falling. To decorate the background even more, I heat embossed snowflakes with white embossing powder on vellum. For the snow, I die cut glitter cardstock from Tonic with the Stitched Hillside die.

To decorate the bottom part of the card, I die cut christmas lights and the wreath with the Build-A-House Christmas add-on on white cardstock. I then colored the die cuts with the same colors I used for the images. To frame the card, I used blue speckled paper from the Spiffy Speckles paper pack. At the bottom, I stamped the sentiment with the Peacock Feathers Oxide ink. To finish of the card, I added Stickles and Glossy Accents in a number of places.

I hope you like these card and it gave you inspiration. Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!

Fun and Messy Distress Oxide Background

Hi Everyone! Today’s card is inspired by the current MFT Sketch Challenge. The Picture Perfect stamp set was just perfect for this sketch which madethis a great opportunity to pull out this stamp set again. This is actually the first time I’m using this particular stamp from the set.

First I started with creating the background as that had to dry for a bit. For this, I stamped the Abstract Triangle rubber stamp from Simon Says on smooth watercolor cardstock. I used VersaMark ink as I wanted to heat emboss it with white embossing powder. On a craftmat, I smushed different colors of Distress Oxide ink and sprayed it with water. The colors I used are Wilted Violet, Shaded Lilac, and Picked Raspberry. I then grabbed my heat embossed background and smushed that in the inks. I created multiple layers, each time I dried it first before going in the ink again. This is a really fun technique to do and it creates a beautiful background.

While the background was drying, I moved on to my main scene: the dog selfie. I stamped the dogs with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with my Copic markers:

  • Grey dog: W0, W2, W4
  • Brown dogs: E51, E53, E55, E57, E59
  • Ears: RV000, RV52, RV55,
  • Collar: V01, V05
  • Nose: C1, C3, C5, C9
  • Tongue: R59, R29

The sentiment I heat embossed with white embossing powder and then blended Distress Oxide Picked Raspberry on top. With a paper towel I buffed off the ink on top of the embossed sentiment. Then I cut the sentiment strip in the design I wanted and adhered it to the background with foam tape. The dog selfie I adhered to the background with tacky glue. And that finishes of the card!

I hope you like this card and it gave you inspiration. If you are curious to see all my other cards created with this stamp set, click here. Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!

Toadally Awesome Fall Card

Hi everyone! As you may have noticed, I’ve been making a number of fall cards lately. I just love the colors of fall leaves and get inspired by them. The fall themed card for today features Hello Bluebird stamps. I’ve used 2 sets: Garden Friends, and Fairy Garden.

I stamped all the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with my copic markers. As this is a fall card, I choose more muted colors:

  • Frog and leaves: YG93, YG95, YG97
  • Mushrooms and ladybug: R24, R29, R59
  • Other elements: YR000, YR01, YR20, YR21, UR24, YR27, YR04, YR07, Y18

After the coloring, I die cut the images with the coordinating dies for the Garden Friends and Fairy Garden set.

For the grass, I die cut white cardstock and ink blended Distress Oxide Ink Mowed Lawn and Cracked Pistachio. To create a fall looking sky, I used Distress Oxide Carved Pumpkin, and Mustard Seed, plus the MFT Cloud Stencil. Once the whole background scene was done, I adhered all the images with tacky glue and stamped the sentiment with VersaFine Onyx Black ink. To finish of the card, I colored the eyes with a Glaze Gel pen and gave the eyes white pupils with a white gel pen.

I hope you like this card and it gave you inspiration. Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!
