Jolly Christmas Card

Hola!!

Today I’m sharing a card featuring a Purple Onion Design stamp designed by Stacey Yacula. This snowman image is so sweet!! I love it!

I stamped the snowman on watercolor paper with Versafine Onyx black ink and I made a mask for him. I also masked the lower part of the panel. Then I blended Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon and Chipped Sapphire Distress inks trying to get a lighter area around the snowman. Next, I colored the image using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.

I stamped the sentiment from Lawn Fawn “Toboggan Together” stamp set and heat embossed it on gold. Last, I decided I wanted some snowflakes falling from the sky and stamped all I could find in my Lawn Fawn stash and heat embossed them on white.

This card was quick and easy to make and I’m thinking on “mass” produce it, maybe in different colors. What do you think? Do you like it?

Thanks for stopping by! Have a nice day!

Yetis’ Anniversary Card

Hi!

Today I’m sharing a card I had on my mind for a long time and I could finally make it with the pretext of our wedding anniversary. Since I had Mama Elephant “Me and my Yeti” stamps I knew they were perfect for wedding or anniversary card. By the way, I think this stamp set is one of my all time favs!!

ME-Anniversary2018a

I stamped the yetis on Neenah cardstock with Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored them with alcohol markers. The bouquet is from “Tiny Ninjas” stamp set. I used coordinating dies to die cut the stamped images. As I wanted to frame the two yetis, I used Lawn Fawn “Stitched ovals” dies to die cut an oval frame from a soft blue cardstock nesting two dies. I also die cut an oval from Bristol paper and inked it with Tattered Rose Distress ink for a soft background. I repeatedly stamped “love + happiness” from “Sentiments from a Yeti” stamp set in a rectangular piece of cardstock using Mama Elephant Winter ink, which is perfect for this soft background.

I adhered all the pieces to a card base and added a bow tie to one of the yetis using the die from Mama Elephant “fba-Cat” dies. Last, I heat embossed the sentiment (from Lawn Fawn “Yeti, set, go” stamp set) on white on a strip of red cardstock and I adhered it using foam tape.

I love how this card tuned out! I hope you like it too!!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

Invites for Telmo’s Birthday Party

Hola!!

Today I’m sharing the invitations for my nephew’s birthday. Last year ones required a lot of coloring and for this year invites I decided to make almost all die cut cards. I used Mama Elephant super cute “fba-Monkey” dies. I love monkeys and you can make the cutest with this die set.

First, I made 11 card bases from white cardstock. They are a little bit smaller than an A2 size card. Next, I used my MISTI to stamp the inside of the cards. For me, this is the more tedious part and I try to make it on an assembly line style because is a lot of stamping. I used Lawn Fawn “Harold’s ABC” stamp set and Concord & 9th “Perfectly Penned” stamps for the word salvaje (wild). By the way, the text means “Come to my party! When:______ Where:______ It’s gonna be wild!”.

For the background, I used some paper from Flying Tiger stores I found in my stash. This leafy pattern is great for these cards! Then, I die cut the pieces for the monkeys from several colors of Canson Mi-Teintes cardstock. This cardstock is meant for pastels and has a texture that I love and I use it a lot for my projects. In particular, I think it adds a lot to these die-cut animals. You can check this other project where I used Mi -Teintes cardstock too. Then I put together the monkeys. All the monkeys are different and that’s great because I find very boring making the same card twice. Once I had everything glued, I added Glossy Accents to the eyes and the noses and when it was dried, added some detail with a white gel pen. I also used a dauber and Worn Lipstick Distress ink to give some rosy cheeks to the monkeys. I think these last details add a lot to them!

As I had to send these to my sister, I decided to make a box for the invites. I used Kraft cardstock for the box and decorated the lid using some patterned paper from Lawn Fawn “Let’s Polka in the Meadow” collection and another monkey. I used Neat and Tangled “Celebrate” die on black and white cardstock and glued it to the box lid so the monkey is holding the sentiment.

I’m very happy with this card set! I hope the recipients like them too!

I’m entering this project into Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Gift it
