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!!

Birthday Card

Hola!

Today I’m sharing a birthday card featurig Neat and Tangled “Big Top Birthday” stamp set. This is the first Neat and Tangled stamp set I got, it was a birthday gift from my sister, and I thought it was perfect for the current Little Tangles Challenge and for celebrating Neat and Tangled 5th aniversary. Happy Birthday!!

I used “Hexastar” stencil for making my background. I blended Abandoned Coral, Spiced Marmalade and Scattered Straw Distress Inks on a piece of Bristol paper. I love using stencils for the background, it’s so easy to get beautiful results!

Next, I stamped the images on Bristol paper using Versafine Onyx black ink. I did some masking to stamp the balloon so it doesn’t look like a donut. I colored the stamped images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and fussy cut everything. I die cut the word celebrate six times using Neat and Tangled “Celebrate” die and glued them together. Then, I press it on my Versamark ink pad, cover it with black sparkle embossing powder and heat embossed it. I repeated the process two more times. Next, I die cut an A2 size panel from black cardstock using Mama Elephant “Peek a frame” dies and adhered it to a card base. After that, I glued the background panel and the “Celebrate” die cut. Finally, I glued the images using foam tape.

I used Glossy Accents on the ballon and on the cake, and Nuvo Ebony Black Crystal Drops on the lion’s nose. I also added some clear iridiscent jewels from Little Things from Lucy’s Cards.

Party bunnies

Hi!

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.
