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!

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!
