Today I’m sharing a birthday card featuring Mama Elephant “Party animals” stamp set. I love these cute rabbits having fun!
For the background I used Mama Elephant “Brushed florals” stamp set. This stamps are gorgeous, and getting beautiful backgrounds with them is so easy! I stamped the flowers and leaves with Distress Inks, stamping white pigment ink on top of some of the images for mutting the color a little bit. Then, I used Lawn Fawn “Large stitched ovals” dies on this background panel and on two pieces of Bristol paper. I inked one Bristol paper oval with Worn Lipstick and Tattered Rose Distress Inks. I ran the second Bristol paper oval through my Big Shot using Lawn Fawn “Grassy border” die and inked this piece with Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks.
I stamped the images on Bristol paper using Versafine Onyx black ink, colored them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and fussy cut everything. For the sentiment, I used Nuvo Embellishment Mousse Indian Gold on a piece of Bristol paper and after it was dried I stamped the sentiment from Lawn Fawn “Ready, set, shake” stamp set using Versafine Onyx black ink. I had to let it dry for quite a long time. If I did it again, I would heat emboss it for sure.
I adhered the background panel to a card base, and next glued the oval, the grass, and the images. As a final touch, I used Sakura Stardust clear glitter pen on the stars on the hats and on the glasses because they are drinking champagne 😉 and added Glossy Accents to the balloon, the candles, the glasses and the stars on the hats.
Today I have a card featuring Lawn Fawn and Ellen Hutson “Love ya bunches” collaboration stamps. These monkeys are the cutest!! I’m very lucky, because a super kind crafty friend sent me some stamped on Neenah cardstock (Thank you ❤ )
First, I colored the images with alcohol markers and fussy cut everything. I wanted to die cut the word hello from some pattern paper, so I blended Scattered Straw Distress Ink on a piece of Bristol paper, stamped one of the Lawn Fawn “Sharp backdrops” stamps with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Next, I blended Fossilized Amber Distress Ink on top and used Neat and Tangled “Journaling Alphas” dies to die cut the word “hello” from this pattern paper.
For the background I used the ink smooshing technique. Honestly, this is definitely out of my comfort zone. I can’t hardly stand the feeling of not having control over the inking. But when I see backgrounds made with this technique I love them! I used Scattered Straw and Twisted Citron for my background and splattered some drops of these Distress Inks with a paint brush. I’m quite happy with the way this turned out! Next, I used Mama Elephant “Peek a frame” dies on a piece of black cardstock to die cut stitched panel which I turned into a frame using my craft knife.
Finally, I adhered the background panel to a card base and glued the stripe with the sentiment, the black frame and the rest of the elements. I love the monkey holding the E letter backwards 🙂
Today I’m sharing an interactive card featuring Lawn Fawn “So jelly” stamp set. These are the cutest starfish and jellyfishes I’ve ever seen!
First, I stamped the images on Bristol paper using Versafine Onyx black ink. Then, I colored them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and fussy cut everything. I blended Peacock Freathers Distress ink and Lawn Fawn Mermaid ink on a watercolor panel, drop some water and dried it with a paper towel. Next, I nested two star dies from Lawn Fawn “Puffy stars” dies and run the panel through my Big Shot.
I made a stripe pattern on a piece of Bristol paper using Tattered Rose and Picked Raspberry Distress Inks and masking using Post-it tape. Then, I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx black ink and heat embossed it using clear embossing powder. Next, I glued the striped panel to a card base and mounted the slider card using double foam adhesive. I added some rays applying a mixture of Perfect Pearls and water with a brush, and used Wink of Stella on the starfish and added Glossy Accents to the jellyfishes. Finally, I rounded the bottom corners using the Corner Chomper.
Here is a video of the slider card. I love how the three jellyfishes move and spin around the starfish!
Today I have another card featuring Lawn Fawn “Baaah humbug” stamp set. As some of you were worried about my previous card’s swimming sheep, I made this card to show you how friendy are these sharks 🙂 In fact, I wanted to include this surprise in the previous card, but I couldn’t find the way to make it work. So I had to make another card, this time with a pirate sheep —I’ve seen this on some card makers’ projects and I had to make it too!
First, I stamped the images on white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo black ink, colored them with alcohol markers and fussy cut everything. The sheep are from Lawn Fawn “Baaah humbug” stamp set, the pirate accessories are from “Booyah” stamp set as well as the sharks’ fins, which are made partialy stamping the bottom part of the ghosts.
For the card base I used a piece of cardstock trimmed to 4-1/4” x 11-1/2”. I made score marks on 5-1/5” and 11” so I have a A2 top folding car with a thin tab in the back side (I hope it makes sense!). I used Lawn Fawn “Small stitched ovals” dies to die cut a hill on a Bristol paper panel, and made a mask using Mama Elephant “Ocean waves trio” dies. I inked the hill with Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs Distress inks, and the sea with Chipped Shapphire and Mermaid Lagoon. I also used Lawn Fawn “Stitched hillside borders” dies on a smaller piece of Bristol paper, and blended Mermaid Lagoon and Tumbled Glass Distress inks on it. Finally, I blended Tumbled Glass on the background panel and used MFT “Sun rays” stencil with Picket Fence Distress paint. Then, I spritzed some water and dried it with a paper towel after few seconds.
Next, I die cut a piece of vellum using Mama Elephant “Ocean waves trio” dies, stamped some fishes from Lawn Fawn “Pizza my heart” stamp set with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder. I stamped another two fishes from Lawn Fawn “Dad+me” stamp set with Memento Tangelo ink and colored them on orange shades. I adhered this piece of vellum to the backside of the hill panel and then I glued this to the front panel. I adhered the images and stamped the blubbles with Lawn Fawn Yeti white ink. Next, I adhered this to the front of my card base. Last, I glued the small wavy panel to the thin tab. The sentiment is from Lesia Zgharda and is heat embossed on white.
Today I have a super fun summer card featuring Lawn Fawn “Baaah humbug” stamps. Yes! A summer card using a Christmas stamp set! I’m totally in love with these sheep, I love sheep and these remind me of “Shaun the Sheep” tv series 🙂
First, I stamped the images on white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo black ink, colored them using ShinHan Touch Twin Brush markers and fussy cut everything. For the sunglasses I used Lawn Fawn “Lovable legends” stamp set. I think the hearts included on this set are the perfect size for the glasses, and I stamped them with Memento Lady Bug ink. For the shark fin I used the bottom of one of the ghosts from Lawn Fawn “Booyah” stamp set. The glass is from Mama Elephant “Otterly adorable” stamp set. Next, I made the float using the smaller die from Lawn Fawn “Small stitched ovals” on a piece of paper from Lawn Fawn “Let’s polka in the dark” paper collection. I used my craft knife to cut a slot in the float for the sheep and also to cut around the sheep’s paws.
I used Mama Elephant “Peek a frame” dies to die cut two panels from Bristol paper and one from vellum. Then, I used Lawn Fawn “Stitched hillside borders” dies on one of the Bristol panels, and Mama Elephant “Ocean Waves Trio” dies on the vellum panel. I used Lawn Fawn “Slide on over” dies to die cut a slide on my background and vellum panels. Next, I blended Wild Honey and Dried Marigold Distress inks on the background panel, Peacock Feathers on the vellum panel and on the front panel, I used Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs for the sand and Mermaid Lagoon and Peacock Feathers for the sea. On the sand I used some brown alcohol markers, my Sakura Stardust clear pen and also applied some Picket Fence Distress paint with a brush.
Next, I used La Vida en Scrap “Escríbeme” stamp set to stamp the sentiment with Versamark ink and heat embossed it using white embossing powder. Last, I adhered everything together and to a card base, and added some details with a white gel pen and Glossy Accents to the float and to the sunglasses.
I love this sheep, I think she looks so cool with her float!! I hope you like this card.
