Card | I Sea it’s Your Birthday

Hi everyone! Today’s card is featuring little stamps from Lawn Fawn from 2 different sets: Seahorsin’ Around and Keep on Swimming. As you can see, the stamp sets go perfectly together. I wanted to create a simple card, really focusing on the little critters.

I started by stamping the critters with Memento Tuxedo Black ink which is a copic friendly ink. I colored everything with my Copic Sketch markers and used coordinating dies to die cut the critters. The seawead I stamped with Distress Ink Peacock Feathers and Mowed Lawn. To give them a nice shine, I coated them with shimmer from Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents.

For the background I sprinkled Nuvo Shimmer Powder Atlantis Burst on watercolor paper and sprayed it with water to activate. This powder is perfect when you want to have a quick shimmering watercolor background without needing watercoloring skills. To frame the card I die cut 2 paper strips with the Stitched Hillside die from Lawn Fawn and popped them up with foam tape.

For the sentiment I chose the ‘i sea it’s your birthday’ from the Seahorsin’ Around stamp set and also stamped bubbles next to it. And that finishes the card! I hope you like it and it gave you inspiration. Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!

Card | Life of a bee

Hi everyone! I made another card with the Bee Happy stamp set from Hello Bluebird. For this card I chose to work with a gallery frame die to create the cute little scene with the bees. On the top part of the card is their home where they store all the delicious honey. In the bottom part of the card are the flowers where they collect their honey from and where they play around like the left bee who is having a lot of fun bouncing on the flower.

For this card I made a process video which is available on my youtube channel. If you like my video’s, make sure to subscribe.

Card | Happy Bird-Day!

Hi everyone! Today I’m sharing a clean & simple card featuring the Garden Friends from Hello Bluebird. For this card I wanted a soft design, setting the bird in the spotlight.

I stared by stamping one of the birds from the Garden Friends stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah Classic Crest Solar white cardstock. I colored the bird with copic markers. Colors used: BG10, BG13, BG18, E00, RV11, Y18. After all the coloring was done, I die cut the bird with the coordinating dies.

For the background I used the Circle Decorative stencil from CraftEmotions and Distress Ink Peacock Feathers. I stamped the music notes and sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The ‘happy’ is from the Happy Happy Happy stamp set from Lawn Fawn. The ‘bird-day’ is from the Garden Friends stamp set from Hello Bluebird.

And that finishes up the card! I hope you like it and it gave you inspiration. Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!

Card | Congratulate Yourselfie

Hi Everyone! Today I’m back with a card featuring the Picture Perfect stamp set from MFT. The design was inspired by the current MFT Sketch challenge. I made the card for a couple that has a tabby cat and a brown dog, so I tried to depict them in the card.

First I stamped the cat and dog on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored them with Copic Sketch markers:

  • Cat: E13, E31, Y18, RV11, E00, R24
  • Dog: E31, E35, E39, RV11, E00, C1, C3, C5, C9
  • Background: YG13, YG17, YG67

For the polaroid frame I used the Die-Namic from MFT called Polaroid Shaker Frame. For the background I masked of certain area’s one by one, and blended Distress Inks on the cardstock. I used the colors: Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, and Mowed Lawn. To add more interest to the background, I sprayed water over it with a Distress Sprayer and dabbed of the water with a paper towel.

I stamped the sentiment on black cardstock with Versamark ink and heat embossed white embossing powder.

And that finishes the card. I hope you like it and it gave you some inspiration. Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!

Card | Happy Bee-Day!

Hi everyone! This is my first card ever using Hello Bluebird stamps! I bought a couple of sets a few weeks back, but haven’t had time to play with them earlier. They were on my wish list for a while already, but not that easy to get in The Netherlands. Anyway, now that I have them you’ll be seeing more cards in the next weeks featuring Hello Bluebird.

In this card I’m featuring the Bee Happy stamp set which I think is very cute! I started by stamping the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored everything with my Copic Sketch markers. The colors I used: Y11, Y13, Y18, C9, C5, C3, C1, B00, BG10.

After all the coloring was done, I die cut the bees with the coordinating dies. To add shine to the eyes, I went over them with a 3d glaze gel pen and added white dots with a gel pen to make the eyes pop.

For the background I used a honeycomb stencil from a Dutch brand called Dutch Doobadoo. I blended Distress Ink Mustard Seed over the stencil for the hexagon pattern. The sentiment I stamped with Versamark ink on black cardstock and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. To frame the main scene I used pattern paper from the Spring Fling pack from Lawn Fawn.

And that finishes up the card! I hope you like it and it gave you inspiration. Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!

Card | Pirate Birthday

Hi everyone! The card of today is a pirate card! I have created it with the Ahoy, Matey stamp set from Lawn Fawn. This set is really versatile and also perfect if you need to create a card for a boy.

I started by stamping the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink which is a copic friendly ink. I colored everything with my Copic Sketch markers and fussy cut the images.

For the sand I die cut Neenah Dessert Storm cardstock with the Stitched Hillside die from Lawn Fawn. I used the same die for the water which is die cut from the Spring Fling paper. For the sky I ink blended Distress Ink Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean over the MFT Cloud stencil.

For the final touches, I created texture in the sand with my copic markers. In the sky I stamped the sentiment ‘Happy Birthday’. And that finishes up the card! I hope you like it and it gave you inspiration. Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!

Card | Let’s All Go To The Beach

Hi everyone! I don’t think I’ve ever made so many cards with 1 stamp set in such a short period of time. For this card I stamped and colored everything from the Beach Chickies stamp set. That is also the reason I named this post, “Let’s all go to the beach”.

As I wanted this card to be dimensional and special, I chose to work with the mini pop-up box die from Lawn Fawn. The idea behind the box in the middle was that I wanted that chickie to be sort of the lifeguard watching over all the other chickies. Although he is not doing an awesome job as the chickie with the kite is almost flying away!

I’ve also created 2 video’s: One is all about the copic coloring, the other shows the assembly process of the card. If you like watching my video’s, make sure to subscribe.

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