Cruising Critters Going on Holiday

Hi Everyone! I just love using the Cruising Critters stamp set for more masculine cards! It is also a stamp which is really fun to color, and that is always my favorite part. What do you enjoy most about card making?

First I stamped the cruising critters on Perfect Colouring paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with copic markers:

  • Car: BG02, BG05, BG07, B00, C0, C1, C3, C5, C9, Y18, Y13
  • Bird: YR24, Y18, Y13, Y11
  • Racoon: C0, C1, C3, C5
  • Bear: W0, W2, W4
  • Cat: YR24, YR27, Y18, E09
  • Bunny: YR20, YR21, YR24, R20
  • Hedgehog and dogs: E50, E51, E53, E55, E57, E13, E11, E31, E35, E37

To create the rest of the scene, only die cutting and some heat embossing was involved. For the mountains I used Moonstone cardstock, and for the snowy tops Sugar Crystal cardstock. For the sky I used Spiffy Speckles paper. For the road I chose a dark blue color rather than black, since I felt black would be to harsh. The dark blue cardstock is called Blue Jay from Lawn Fawn. To create the dashes, I used one of the stamp in the stamp set. I stamped them with VersaMark ink, coated it in white embossing powder and heat set it. While I had everything out for heat embossing, I also stamped and heat embossed the sentiment on black cardstock.

Now all the elements were ready and I could assemble the card. I adhered all the background elements with double sided tape. The sentiment and the cruising critters, I adhered with foam tape to give it dimension and make it stand out from the background. And that finishes of the card!

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

Sunny Studio Stamps – Cruising Critters

Hi Everyone! I have a confession to make: Somehow, always when I try to make a card more masculine, it still ends up cute and girly. Do you recognize that also with yourself? However, this time, I think I’ve managed to keep it masculine! In the card of today I’m featuring the Cruising Critters from Sunny Studio Stamps. I love how the critters are piled up in the car! As this card is going to a guy who has an olive green car, I also wanted to color this car in those colors.

First I stamped the image on Perfect Colouring paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with copic markers:

  • Car: YG93, YG95, YG97, YG01, C0, C1, C3, C5, W0, W2
  • Bird: Y18, Y13, Y11, YR04
  • Cat and racoon: C0, C1, C3, C5
  • Dogs, hegdehog, and bear: E50, E51, E53, E55, E57, E59
  • Bunny: W0, W2

For the sky I ink blended Cracked Pistachio and Twisted Citron on white cardstock. In the top left I stamped the sentiment with VersaFine Onyx Black ink. To create the bushes in the scene, I die cut Fall Fling paper from Lawn Fawn with the Puffy Cloud Borders. For the road, I used a strip of black cardstock and heat embossed the white dash lines on them. These are also part of the Cruising Critters set. I adhered the car with the critters on top of the scene with foam tape to give it dimension.

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

Fun Distress Oxide Ink Technique with Gel Plate

Hi everyone! A while ago I bought a gel plate but had not used it that much yet. And as I now have Distress Oxide Inks, I wanted to see what cool effects you can create. For the techniques of today, you could use a large stamp, or as I’m doing, a bunch of smaller stamps. The stamps I used are from Sunny Studio Stamps and were perfect for this technique.

I’ve also made the video down below in which I explain how this Distress Oxide technique with the gel plate works. It is really fun to do, and so easy! If you ever need to create a card quickly, this technique is perfect. I’m actually showing a couple of Distress Oxide techniques in the video. So if you are looking for inspiration on what you can do with Oxide Inks, this video is perfect for you. If you like watching my video’s, make sure to subscribe to my channel.

These cards is quite easy to make and I hope it gave you inspiration for working with Oxide Inks and the beautiful Elegant Leaves stamp set. Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!

Stamping Fall Leaves with Distress Oxide Ink

Hi everyone! Distress Oxide Inks have been on my wishlist for quite some time now. Recently I finally bought a beautiful collection of colors. I love how much you can do with the Oxide Inks. Today I wanted to try stamping with the Oxide Inks. There is this gorgeous set from Sunny Studio Stamps with fall leaves and this set was perfect for the idea I had in mind.

First I stamped the sentiment as I wanted to make sure the leaves wouldn’t go in the sentiment area. For the sentiment I created an ombre look with 2 colors: Candied Apple for the bottom, and Carved Pumpkin for the top. From the stamp set I chose 2 solid leaves and 2 outlined leaves to stamp everything with. For all the leaves, I first stamped them partially with 1 color, wiped of the stamp, and stamped it again with the other color. Next to the same colors for the sentiment I also used Mustard Seed and Mowed Lawn.

I really love how the stamping turned out, it really looks as if the leaves are changing to the beautiful fall colors. To add a bit more interest, I also splattered the Oxide Ink on the card but I made sure the sentiment itself stayed clean by putting a piece of paper on top. And that finishes of the card!

This card is quite easy to make and I hope it gave you inspiration for working with Oxide Inks and the beautiful Elegant Leaves stamp set. Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!
