Treat boxes for cats

Hola!

Today I’m sharing some gift boxes I made for my brother and sister in law. Well, for the cats that visit their house, because the boxes are filled with cat treats ūüôā I was inspired by this project by Jenny. I love the idea of making a gift box for a furry friend. Besides, I’m super lucky because I was yearning for a milk carton shape die and a super generous crafty friend gifted me one from Sizzix ‚̧ I can’t tell you how happy I am and how lucky I felt!

First, I stamped the images from Lawn Fawn “Meow you doin'” stamp set on Bristol paper with Versafine Onyx black ink. I colored the images using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and fussy cut everything. Then, I used the milk carton die on some Lawn Fawn¬†perfectly plaid Christmas paper and cut out the middle part of the die cut pieces. I ran the upper pieces of the die cuts through my Big Shot using Lawn Fawn “Valentine borders” dies. I trimmed down two stripes of Bristol paper to substitute the pieces I cut out from the die cuts, inked them with Abandoned Coral Distress Ink and with Lawn Fawn Mermaid ink and spritzed some water and dried it after few seconds with a paper towel . Next, I mounted the boxes using double sided tape.

I cut two thin strips of white cardstock and stamped the sentiment using the same inks I used on the boxes. I glued the images to the boxes and made two tiny holes on each box to tie the sentiment strip with some twine.

I’m looking forward to giving this treat boxes to my brother and sister in law! I really appreciate they’re so kind to the cats visiting their home!

Birthday card for a sweetie

Hi!!

Yesterday was my sister’s birthday (¬°Felicidades, Arantza!) and we had a family meeting. It was great because I hadn’t met my family in a while and I really missed them. So today I’m sharing the birthday card I made for my sister using Waffle Flower “Sweets” stamp set, designed by Big Beard and Bird. First time I¬†saw this stamp set it immediately reminded me of my sister, because the little girl looks just like her when she was a child.

I stamped the images on Bristol paper using Versafine Onyx black ink. I did some masking so the little girl is standing on the top of a pile of sweets. I colored the images using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers, and I added a very light shade of blue around the image to make it pop against the white background. Next, I ran that panel through my Big Shot using Lawn Fawn “Stitched ovals” dies. Then, I used the same oval die on a piece of pattern paper from Dear Lizzy “Lovely day” collection I previously had trimmed down to A2 size. I adhered the pattern paper panel to a card base and glued the oval with the stamped image.

Next, I stamped the first part of the sentiment with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. I used Mama Elephant “Madison Avenue” dies on a piece of the same pattern paper to die cut a banner and stamped and heat embossed the second part of the sentiment. Last, I adhered this banner with foam adhesive.

Honestly, I wish I was that girl because I looooove candy.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a nice day!

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.

84 Inside of card-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 “Escr√≠beme” 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 ‚̧

Happy Birthday, Birka!

Hi!!

Today I’m joining to Birka‘s birthday celebration (Alles Gute zum Geburtstag!). Birka’s friends have organized an amazing party! They have planned a blog hop and the cards they’ve shared are simply awesome. And they have designed some great digis for us to make cards for the birthday girl. I love these wonderful digis!! These girls are so talented!

So, I had to make a pink card for Birka and, honestly, I’m not a huge fan of pink. I’m more #teamt√ľrkis. But I’ve enjoyed forcing myself to create an all pink card. And I’ve chosen the manatee stamp because it is super cute!!

I printed the manatee in Strathmore Drawing paper and colored it with Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils. I’m getting increasingly happy with these pencils and I love the results I’m getting with them. I added some detail to the manatee with a white gel pen and a black gel pen.

For my background, I blended Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick and Festive Berries Distress Inks on a piece of Bristol paper. Then, I misted the beautiful Hero Arts “Waves” stencil with water, place it carefully on top of the background panel and removed it after few seconds. I love how Distress Inks react with water! Next, I die cut the panel using Lawn Fawn “Puffy stars” dies and glued the pieces to piece of black cardstock leaving a little space between them.¬†Then, I inked the corners of an A2 size panel with Versamark ink and heat embossed it using rose gold embossing powder. I trimmed down the background panel and adhered it to this embossed panel.

I wanted to use one of the free sentiments these girls have designed, so I used Google Translate, because I don’t have a clue of the meaning!! I opted for “P{INK}E¬†gr√ľ√üe”. I printed it on black cardstock and heat embossed it using rose gold embossing powder. Last, I adhered the banner with the sentiment and the super cute manatee with foam tape and added some Clear Iridescent Jewels from Little Things from Lucy’s Cards.

Last, I would like to congratulate the girls who have organized this wonderful birthday party. This kind of things give meaning to the #craftyfrindsarethebest hashtag. I’m sure Birka is over the moon because of her birthday celebrations.

Hope you like this card. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!!

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!
