Swimming with Sharks

Hola!!

Today I have another card featuring Lawn Fawn “Baaah humbug” stamp set. As some of you were worried about my previous card’s swimming sheep, I made this card to show you how friendy are these sharks 🙂 In fact, I wanted to include this surprise in the previous card, but I couldn’t find the way to make it work. So I had to make another card, this time with a pirate sheep —I’ve seen this on some card makers’ projects and I had to make it too!

First, I stamped the images on white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo black ink, colored them with alcohol markers and fussy cut everything. The sheep are from Lawn Fawn “Baaah humbug” stamp set, the pirate accessories are from “Booyah” stamp set  as well as the sharks’ fins, which are made partialy stamping the bottom part of the ghosts.

Surprise! Here are the super friendly sharks 🙂

For the card base I used a piece of cardstock trimmed to 4-1/4” x 11-1/2”. I made score marks on 5-1/5” and 11” so I have a A2 top folding car with a thin tab in the back side (I hope it makes sense!). I used Lawn Fawn “Small stitched ovals”  dies to die cut a hill on a Bristol paper panel, and made a mask using Mama Elephant “Ocean waves trio” dies. I inked the hill with Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs Distress inks, and the sea with Chipped Shapphire and Mermaid Lagoon. I also used Lawn Fawn “Stitched hillside borders” dies on a smaller piece of Bristol paper, and blended Mermaid Lagoon and Tumbled Glass Distress inks on it. Finally, I blended Tumbled Glass on the background panel and used MFT “Sun rays” stencil with Picket Fence Distress paint. Then, I spritzed some water and dried it with a paper towel after few seconds.

Thanks to my boyfriend Aitor for working as a hand model :p

Next, I die cut a piece of vellum using Mama Elephant “Ocean waves trio” dies, stamped some fishes from Lawn Fawn “Pizza my heart” stamp set with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder. I stamped another two fishes from Lawn Fawn “Dad+me” stamp set with Memento Tangelo ink and colored them on orange shades. I adhered this piece of vellum to the backside of the hill panel and then I glued this to the front panel. I adhered the images and stamped the blubbles with Lawn Fawn Yeti white ink. Next, I adhered this to the front of my card base. Last, I glued the small wavy panel to the thin tab. The sentiment is from Lesia Zgharda and is heat embossed on white.

I hope you like this card!

Sea you soon

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 “EscrĂ­beme” 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.

Interactive Halloween Card

Hi!!

Today I show you my first Halloween card of the year. In Spain we don’t celebrate Halloween, but I wish we did, because all the costumes and the candies… it’s so fun! So this year I want to make some proyects to share with my family and friends 🙂

I’ve choosen these fantastic Mama Elephant stamp sets designed by Luli Bunny: Meowlloween and Meowlloween Extras. You know, I love cats!

I wated to make a scene to look like Dracula’s castle, with the hardwood floor, the wallpaper and the family portraits… and then my boyfriend told me: “why don’t you make the portrait’s eyes move, like in horror movies?” and I tought it would be fun!

I stamped the vapire cat on Bristol paper with VersaFine onyx black ink. For the portrait, I stamped the frame from Lawn Fawn “Flirty Frames” stamp set with VersaMark and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. Then I did some masking to stamp the witch cat inside the frame with VersaFine onyx black ink. For the floor I stamped Lawn Fawn “Woodgrain backdrops” stamp with Memento peanut brittle ink. Then I colored everything with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and I used a gold gel pen for the portrait frame.

For the background I used some Graphic 45 paper. I stamped the sentiment with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it using Ranger Super Fine White embossing powder. Then I adhered everything together with double sided tape and foam tape and adhered the front panel to a black card base.

To make the portrait eyes moving I did like a slider card, but I put a tab to move the eyes with the word “pull” heat embossed with white on black cardstock.

You can see the portrait’s eyes moving here.

Some Winter Cards

Hola!

Today I have some very simple winter cards I made using Purple Onion Designs stamps designed by Stacey Yacula. I really love these stamps, these are probably the sweetest animals I have ever seen!

I ordered these stamps back in July, and when I mounted them I just had to stamp them!! I wanted to use those images, so I made some very quick and easy cards. I picked up some Lawn Fawn patterned papers (these are from the beachside petite paper pack) and color the images using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers to match the papers. Then I trimmed three strips of white cardstock and I stamped some Lawn Fawn sentiments (from “Yeti, set, go” and “Baaah Humbug” stamp sets). The sentiments in the owl card and in the fox card are heat embossed with Ranger Black Sparkle embossing powder, and in the fox card I used Glossy Accents too.

For the bunny card I used a Fiskars border punch with the Threading Water cartridge on the white cardstock strip and stamped the sentiment with Lawn Fawn deep sea dye ink.

Finally I adhered everything together using foam tape and double sided tape and used some Wink of Stella in the animal clothes for a shiny final touch.

Although these are very simple and kind of “trial and error” cards, in the end I like how they turned out. I think my favorite is the one with the owl. What do you think? Do you like them?

Thaks for stopping by!
