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!

A Frosty Happy Birthday

Hi everyone! Today I’m sharing 2 similar Happy Birthday cards with the cute Snow Angels from Mama Elephant.

For both of the cards, I die cut the Happy Birthday out of Neenah cardstock. For the background of the card with the bears, I used Distress Oxide Tumbled Glass and Mermaid Lagoon. For the other one I used Mermaid Lagoon and Peacock Feathers. To create the effect of snow, I diluted white acrylic paint and made splatters on the background. To create shimmer spots, I also sprayed shimmer spray through the snow day stencil.

While the backgrounds were drying, I stamped all the images on Perfect Colouring paper and colored them with my copic markers:

  • Polar bears: YR20, YR21, YR000, YR01 , E50, E51, E53, B93, B95, B97, B00
  • Cat and fox: YR20, YR21, YR24, YR27, YR000, YR01, YR02, BG72, BG75, BG78

After coloring. I first adhered the Happy Birthday to the background and decided where I wanted my images to go. Then on those spots, I stamped the snow angels with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. To create the magical sparkle look of snow, I put Glossy Accents on the snow angels and Happy Birthday and tipped Prisma Glitter on top. Once that was dry, I adhered my images with foam squares. As a final touch, I added Stickles Frosted Lace to the scarfs and hat.

I hope you like these cards 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!

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 | 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.

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 | Lawn Fawn Hoppy Birthday

Hi Everyone! For today I made a colorful card with the Toadally Awesome set from Lawn Fawn. The design was inspired by the MFT Sketch 435 challenge.

Make sure to check out my video to see the whole card making process.

First I stamped all the images with Archival Jet Black ink and colored all the green elements with my ZIG brushes. For the yellow and orange I choose to use my Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pens.

With the Lawn Fawn Hillside Die, I die cut the water, and for the grass I used the MFT Grassy Hills die (an alternative is the Lawn Fawn Grassy Border). I paper pieced all the background elements together and placed the stamped images on top.

For the sentiment, I die cut a fancy wavy banner and stamped “Have a hoppy birthday” on top. This banner is 3d which gives a nice touch. And that finishes up the page!
