Baby Dino Card

Hola!!

Today I’m sharing another newborn baby card. This time I used the super cute dinos from Neat and Tangled “Prehistoric” stamp set I previously colored for The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge. I can’t get enough of this stamp set!

I stamped the images on Strathmore Drawing paper using Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored them using Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils. Then, I fussy cut everything. For my background, I blended several colors of Distress Inks on a piece of Bristol paper, spritzed it with water and dried it with a paper towel after few seconds. Next, I flicked watered down White Fence Distress Paint using a paintbrush. I love using this technique for galaxy backgrounds!

I used Lawn Fawn “Stitched hillside borders” dies on a piece of brown cardstock to make the ground. I stamped the sentiment from SSS and Neat and Tangled “Cute chicks” collaboration stamp using Versamark ink and heat embossed it using white embossing powder. I wanted to frame the scene, so I made a frame from white cardstock nesting two dies from Mama Elephant “Peek a frame” dies. Finally, I adhered the background panel to a card base and glued the rest of the elements. For making the heart I used Lawn Fawn “Valentine borders” dies on a piece of Dymo embossing labels and glued 5 tiny hearts together.

I wanted to enter this card into the current Little Tangles Challenge #84: Inside of card/matching envelope, so I made a matching envelope.

I used my WRMK envelope punch board on a piece of Bristol paper and stamped the cute cavegirl, the little dino and the bubble with the sentiment. I masked everything and used Lawn Fawn “Stitched hillside borders” dies on a piece of post-it roll tape to make another mask. I used again my Distress Inks to make a galaxy background and then, I masked the sky and blended Gathered Twigs Distress Ink to make the ground. I colored the images using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and, finally, I used La Vida en Scrap “Escríbeme” stamp set to stamp the names of the future parents on Versamark ink and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder. This card is not going to be mailed, so I could use this beautiful calligraphy stamp set, which I love ❤

Happy Birthday, Birka!

Hi!!

Today I’m joining to Birka‘s birthday celebration (Alles Gute zum Geburtstag!). Birka’s friends have organized an amazing party! They have planned a blog hop and the cards they’ve shared are simply awesome. And they have designed some great digis for us to make cards for the birthday girl. I love these wonderful digis!! These girls are so talented!

So, I had to make a pink card for Birka and, honestly, I’m not a huge fan of pink. I’m more #teamtürkis. But I’ve enjoyed forcing myself to create an all pink card. And I’ve chosen the manatee stamp because it is super cute!!

I printed the manatee in Strathmore Drawing paper and colored it with Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils. I’m getting increasingly happy with these pencils and I love the results I’m getting with them. I added some detail to the manatee with a white gel pen and a black gel pen.

For my background, I blended Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick and Festive Berries Distress Inks on a piece of Bristol paper. Then, I misted the beautiful Hero Arts “Waves” stencil with water, place it carefully on top of the background panel and removed it after few seconds. I love how Distress Inks react with water! Next, I die cut the panel using Lawn Fawn “Puffy stars” dies and glued the pieces to piece of black cardstock leaving a little space between them. Then, I inked the corners of an A2 size panel with Versamark ink and heat embossed it using rose gold embossing powder. I trimmed down the background panel and adhered it to this embossed panel.

I wanted to use one of the free sentiments these girls have designed, so I used Google Translate, because I don’t have a clue of the meaning!! I opted for “P{INK}E grüße”. I printed it on black cardstock and heat embossed it using rose gold embossing powder. Last, I adhered the banner with the sentiment and the super cute manatee with foam tape and added some Clear Iridescent Jewels from Little Things from Lucy’s Cards.

Last, I would like to congratulate the girls who have organized this wonderful birthday party. This kind of things give meaning to the #craftyfrindsarethebest hashtag. I’m sure Birka is over the moon because of her birthday celebrations.

Hope you like this card. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!!

Happy Fall Card

Hi!

Today I’m sharing a card featuring Lawn Fawn “For you, deer” stamps and dies. When I first saw this super cute stamps, I knew I had to buy them. I was looking forward to playing with them, and this weekend I had time to make a card at last.

First, I stamped the images on Bristol paper using Versafine Onyx black ink. The scarf is from Lawn Fawn “Baaah Humbug” stamp set, the beanie is from Lawn Fawn “Critters in the Artic” stamp set and the little pumpkins are from Mama Elephant “Meowlloween” stamp set. I colored the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and fussy cut everything, except the bear and the deer wich I die cut with coordinating dies. Next, I used Tim Holtz “Bricked” stencil with Fired Brick Distress Ink on a piece of Bristol paper. I love this stencil, the result is amazing. Then, I used Lawn Fawn “Wonderful window” die to die cut two windows and I trim off the shutters of one of them (which is going to be on the inside of the card).

I used my craft knife to cut a slightly smaller opening than the window outer edge on the card base, on the front panel and on a piece of Lawn Fawn pattern paper from “Beachside” paper collection. I adhered the front panel and the pattern paper panel to the card base. Next, I glued the windows to the front and to the inside of the card. I blended Tattered Rose Distress Ink on a piece of Bristol paper and used Lawn Fawn “Stitched scalloped borders” dies to make a scalloped rectangle. Then, I glued the deer and the bear and added the scarf and the beanie to them. On the inside of the card, their little paws were to far from the bottom of the card, so I made a kind of bench for them to stand up and peek through the window using Lawn Fawn “Let’s roll” stamps. Last, to make the floor I stamped Lawn Fawn “Woodgrain backdrops” stamp with Pumice Stone Distress Ink and colored over it with a light gray marker.

I stamped the sentiment from Lawn Fawn “Ready, set, shake” stamp set using Versafine Onyx black ink and heat embossed it using clear embossing powder. Then, I colored it with a gold gel pen. I used Lawn Fawn “Grassy border” on a piece of white cardstock and used alcohol markers to make the grass I glued it under the window. Then, I added the pumpkins and the pile of leaves I made using Mama Elephant “Birch trees” dies. I also added some scattered leaves on the front of the card. Last, I added some Wink of Stella to the scarf and the beanie and added some detail to the eyes and the snouts using a Sakura Glaze black pen.

It took quite a long time to make this card because I couldn’t stop adding things, but I love the result and I hope you like it too!

Newborn baby card

Hola!!

Today I have a card for some new parents using Neat and Tangled and Simon Says Stamp “Cute chicks” collaboration stamp set. How cute are these chicks? I think they are adorable!

I colored these images for The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge. I wanted to get out of my comfort zone, so I grabbed my Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils. I stamped the images on Strathmore Drawing paper using Memento Tuxedo black ink and I tried to color them like Francine Vuillème did on this card. I think Francine’s coloring is amazing! I love the depth and dimension she achieves on her images.

For my card base I used a piece of folded Bristol paper I ran through my Big Shot using Lawn Fawn “Stitched party banner” dies, so the card base has a banner shape. I blended Spiced Marmalade, Wild Honey and Scattered Straw Distress Inks for the sky and Twisted Citron for the grass. Then, I spritzed some water and dry it after few seconds with a paper towel.  I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx black ink, added some notes using Memento Peanut Brittle ink and some grass using Twisted Citron ink.

Next, I fussy cut the images and glued the hen and two little chickens to the front of the card. I added the other chicken and the egg to the inside of the card and stamped some more grass using Twisted Citron ink. Last, I added some baker’s twine and some details to the images with a white gel pen. I also inked the backside of the card using Neat and Tangled “Star” stencil and Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink. I thought this would be cool in case they want to hang it and use it as decoration for the baby’s room.

Birthday party invitations

Hi!

Today I’m sharing some birthday party invitations I made for my nephew’s birthday. In fact my nephew’s birthday is in December, but I know that by that time I will be more in the mood of Christmas cards and decorations, so I’ve decided to make them now. I had to make ten invitations and after making them I think I didn’t choose an easily reproducible design.

“Come to my party! When _________ Where________ Don’t miss it!”

The cards are 4” x 3”. I used Mama Elephant “Peek a frame” dies to die cut the panels: 10 from Bristol paper (where I stamped and colored the images) and 10 from white cardstock (where I stamped the message). First, I stamped the messages using Lawn Fawn “Harold’s ABC” stamps. I used my MISTI, which is the perfect tool for mass producing cards.

Next, I stamped the super cute images from Neat and Tangled “Prehistoric” stamp set on the Bristol panels using Versafine Onyx black ink. It involved a lot of masking. Again, the MISTI was a time saver! Then, I blended Tumbled Glass for the sky and Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs Distress inks for the ground. I thought the scene was a little bit plane, so I decided to stamp the mountains from Lawn Fawn “Dad + me” stamp set. As I had previously blended the blue ink for the sky, I used a white gel pen to color the tops of the mountains. After that, I colored all the stamped images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.

InvTelmo6

I made the envelopes with the WRMK envelope punch board, using Lawn Fawn “Let’s Polka in the Dark” papers. On the front of the envelopes I stamped the recipient’s name using La Vida en Scrap “Escríbeme” stamp set and the little cavegirl, and on the back side I stamped a message that means “Telmo’s birthday party is going to be dinomite” using the same Lawn Fawn stamp set than before. For the green envelopes, I stamped everything with white pigment ink and once it was dried I traced everything with a golden gel pen. It was time consuming, but I love the result.

I plan to make a cute box to give these to my sister. And I’m thinking on making some birthday party decorations too!!
