Witch Bear and Bat Bird

Hi!

Today I’m sharing a card featuring the fabulous “Boo” stamp set from Waffle Flower. I think the bear and the bird look great in their costumes! Although Halloween is not very popular in Spain, I have weakness for all Halloween themed things. Plus, as a child I loooooved witches, and I still love them. It was a very strange thing, because 6 year-old girls don’t have witches all over their room, but I did! So when I saw this stamp set immediately fell in love with it.

For making this card, first I stamped the images on Strathmore Drawing paper using Versafine Onyx black ink and colored them with Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils. Then, I fussy cut all the images. For my background I blended Shaded Lilac, Seedless Preserves and Dusty Concord Distress Inks on a piece of Bristol paper, splattered some water and dried it with a paper towel after few seconds.

Next, I die cut some trees from white cardstock using Mama Elephant “Birch trees” dies and some grass from black cardstock using Lawn Fawn “Grassy borders” dies. Then, I used Lawn Fawn ” Puffy cloud borders” dies on a piece of vellum spritzed with a mixture of Perfect Pearls and water and on a piece of Bristol paper. On the latter, I blended Pumice Stone Distress Ink, stamped the sentiment from Mama Elephant “Meowlloween Extras” stamp set with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it using white embossing powder.

I adhered the trees and the vellum clouds to the background panel and then I glued some clear thread to the backside of the bear, because I wanted it to be suspended. I glued the ends of the thread to the upper and lower parts of the panel and then adhered the grass and the clouds using foam tape. Last, I adhered the rest of the images using foam tape and added some Wink of Stella on the witch hat.

I hope you have a wonderful Halloween filled with candy.

Thanks for stopping by!

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!

So jelly

Hi!!!

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!

Hi!!

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.

Rainbows and Unicorns

Hello!!

Today I have a super colorful and sparkly shaker card featuring The Greeting Farm “Magical friends” stamp set. These unicorn, pegasus and pony are super cute, aren’t they?

First, I blended Abandoned Coral, Wild Honey, Scattered Straw, Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers and Shaded Lilac Distress inks on a piece of 5-1/2′ x 5-1/2′ Bristol paper. Then, I splattered some water and dried it after few seconds. Next, I die cut the panel using Lawn Fawn “Puffy stars” dies and adhered the star to the center of a 5-1/2′ x 5-1/2′ card base.

Then, I stamped the images on Bristol paper using Versafine Onyx black ink, colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and fussy cut them. Since the background is so colorful, I wanted the critters to be white. Next, I used Lawn Fawn “Puffy cloud borders” dies on two pieces of vellum and adhered one on top of the star, and the other one behind the window panel and then, I adhered a piece of acetate behind the same window panel. I stamped the sentiment using Versafine Onyx black ink and heat embossed it using Wow Clear Hologram Sparkle Embossing Glitter. I love the shiny look!

I trimmed down two pieces of fun foam to the card size and used the same Lawn Fawn “Puffy stars” dies. Then, I glued them together, and to the cardbase, so I didn’t have to use tons of foam tape 🙂  Next, I filled my shaker with Little Things from Lucy’s Cards sequins (I used a mixture of Twinkle Lights Sparkly Shaker Selection and Clear Mint Sequin Mix) and adhered the front panel to close the shaker. Last, I glued the pegasus and the unicorn and used Wink of Stella on their manes and Glossy Accent on the unicorn’s horn.

I love this super colorful card. I hope you like it too!
