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 #teamtürkis. 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 grüße”. 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!!

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.

I’m entering this card into Little Tangles Challenge #83: Birthday

and into Simon Says Stamp Work it Wednesday

 

Have a nice day! Thanks for stopping by!

 

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!

I’m entering this project into The Greeting Farm July Farm Fresh Challenge: Shaker Cards.

Have a nice day!!
