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 ❤

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.

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!!

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.

CASometry Challenge 3: Final Stage

Hi!

Today I’m sharing my card for the final stage of Anna Kossakovskaya‘s CASometry Challenge 3. Randomizer. This challenge has been loads of fun!! I’m so happy to have taken part! I want to thank Anna for hosting this challenge and make us stretch our creative muscles 🙂

For the final stage, we had to choose one of the cards we made for the previous stages and use all the stamp sets, dies, stencils and embossing folders for making a new card. It was hard choosing a card, and in the end I selected the one I did for stage 3 using Lawn Fawn “Pizza my heart” stamp set.

First, I stamped the images on Bristol paper with Versafine Onyx black ink, colored them using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and fussy cut everything. Then, I used one of the dies from Lawn Fawn “Stitched borders” to make the stitching detail on a piece of pattern paper from Lawn Fawn “Perfectly plaid christmas” paper pad. Next, I used a die from Lawn Fawn “Stitched scalloped borders” on a piece of vellum to make a scalloped frame.

I used La Vida en Scrap “Escríbeme” stamp set to stamp the word friend on the piece of vellum using Versafine Onyx black ink, and then stamped the sentiment using the same ink. Next I glued the images to the vellum and then adhered the vellum to the pattern paper. I glued the panel to a card base, and finally I stamped the rest of the sentiment on the inside of the card with Memento Lady Bug ink and glued the pizza cutter.

I hope you like this last card for CASometry Challenge 3. Randomizer!

Here you have some pictures of the cards I made for all stages:

Stage 1: 1 random stamp set + any geometry shape

Stage 2: 1 random stamp set + using one stamp minimum 3 times

Stage 3: 1 random stamp set + embossing

Stage 4: 1 random stamp set + friendship

I hope you’ve enjoyed this challenge as much as I did! By the way, which is your favorite card? Mine is the one for the stage 3!!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!!

CASometry Challenge3: Stage 3

Hola!!

Today I’m sharing my card for the third stage of Anna Kossakovskaya‘s CASometry Challenge 3. Randomizer. This week, besides to use a random stamp set, we had to use embossing.

This time my boyfriend chose a stamp set that I was looking forward to using: Lawn Fawn “Pizza my heart”. This stamp set is so versatile and cute and fun to use! I had a great time using it!

First, I stamped the pizzas on Bristol paper using Versafine Onyx black ink and colored them using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. Then, I stamped the ingredients using Memento Bamboo Leaves, Peanut Brittle, Lady Bug, Tuxedo Black and  Rich Cocoa inks. I love the pepperoni rosy cheeks! After that, I fussy cut the images.

Next, I trimmed a piece of Bristol paper to a standard A2 size, stamped the ingredients randomly using Versamark ink and heat embossed it using clear embossing powder. Then, I blended Dried Marigold and Tattered Rose Distress inks. After that, I trimmed a stripe of white cardstock and used Lawn Fawn “Stitched borders” and “Stitched scalloped borders” dies. For the sentiment, I used La Vida en Scrap “Escríbeme” stamp set to stamp “amatxu” (that means mammy in basque) using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then used my MISTI to stamp “you’re the greatest!” using Memento Lady Bug ink, and then stamped it again with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Last, I adhered the background panel to a card base, the strip with the sentiment to the background panel, and the happy pizzas to the strip using foam tape.

I loooove this card. It was so much fun to make! I’m going to tell you a secret. Next Sunday is Mother’s Day in Spain, and I made this card for my sister Arantza. She is a wonderful mother to my nephew Telmo, and is always very supportive of me. So I really enjoy making cards for Telmo and for her, because they’re always happy to receive them. I know she probably is going to read this before receiving the card, but I hope she enjoys the card anyway!

I hope you like this card! Thanks for stopping by!
