Out of This World

August 4, 2017

My favorite part of my birthday month, is playing with all my new stamp sets. I am so excited to finally play with this stamp set.

Details

Size:  Horizontal top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began by stamping the images in Versa Fine Ink. I clear embossed the images to speed up the drying process. I water colored all of the images using Crayola Fine Line Markers and a water brush. Once the images were dry, I fussy cut them out, leaving a small white border.

Next, I create a purple card base. I stamped a starry back drop in a dark purple ink. I added some ink blending in two shades of purple and white for added dimension. I white heat embossed the sentiment in the bottom right corner.

Lastly, I adhered the images to the card front and added lashes to the astronaut.

Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began this card by die cutting a stitched rectangle from some Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Rainbow paper. I die cute a smaller rectangle from some water color paper.  Using as many Lawn Fawn Inks as I could, I began stamping. I placed the sentiment in the bottom right corner. In hindsight I wish that I had centered it. Then I stamped the cupcakes on the rest of the panel.

I used foam tape to pop the stamped panel up on the plaid paper. I adhered the panels to a dark pink card base and the card was complete.

Stamps Used: Lawn Fawn’s Bake Me a Cake

July 17, 2017

My brother’s birthday is coming up soon and I need a birthday card. He loves donuts and I just bought the Donut Worry Stamp Set. It might have been fate.

Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began this card with a panel of water color paper. I stamped 12 donuts in Barely Beige ink. I used water color pencils to add all of the color. I blended the colors out with a water brush. Once it was dry, I white heat embossed the sprinkles for added interest. I adhered this panel to a gray card base.

For the sentiment, I white heat embossed the sentiment on a scrap of black card stock. I trimmed it out with my scissors, which is why it is a bit wonky. I adhered it to the card front with foam tape.

I added a sentiment and donut to the inside of the card and it was finished.

Moving Cactus Cards

July 14, 2017

I made these cards with the Simon Says Stamp May 2017 Card Kit. I added a sentiment stamp set from Lawn Fawn because the stamp set in the card kit did not include any sentiments. I also made two cards, because I need two birthday cards within the week.

Paw Patrol Card

July 14, 2017

We were invited to a Paw Patrol Themed birthday party. I could have bought a matching card, but couldn’t bring myself to do it. Instead, I did my best to make one.

Extra Details:  I began with a white card base. Using a few DIY stencils, I ink blended some grass on clouds on the card front. I stamped a sentiment on the inside of the card. I added a gift bone; I colored the bow with a red marker. I also added some paw print in colored inks.

For the front of the card, I cut half inch strips of the six colors that coordinate with the characters on the show. I stamped some paw prints in grey ink on each strips. I also cut each strip to a slightly different length and angled the end. I adhered all of the strips in to the card base.

For the sentiment, I cut a strip of black card stock that was ¾ of an inch wide. I white heat embossed a custom sentiment on the strip. I angled the end and adhered the black strip with foam tape under the rest of the strips.

Lion Birthday Card

July 13, 2017

A little cousin of mine’s birthday was earlier this month. He and his grandmother love lions, so I had to make a lion card or two. Another family member also requested a lion card for the birthday boy.

Extra Details:  I began with a white card base. I stamp the images and sentiment in black ink on both the outside and inside of the card. Then, I masked everything off using Post It tape. I added a strip of Post It Tape to create a horizon line also. I ink blended some green on the bottom to be grass and some blue on the top for the sky. I repeated the whole procedure on the inside of the card.

I used colored pencils to add color to all of the images and the card was complete.

Extra Details:  I began with a white card base. I stamp the images and sentiment in black ink. I used colored pencils to color everything in and add in the grass.

I felt the card still needed something, so I stamped and color a crown on a scrap of card stock. Once I fussy cut it out, I adhered it to the lion’s head with foam tape and the card was complete.

Birthday Fox

May 1, 2017

My nephew’s second birthday is coming up soon, and foxes are his favorite animal. I have also been having way to much fun making my own patterned paper lately. Full Disclosure: Also, I meant to have this done to enter in a Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, but I didn’t get it done.

Details

Size:  Horizontal top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began this card with a white card base. I stamped the numbers in the background in some blue Distress Ink. I used the second generation stamping. I added the 2s in with some orange Distress ink.

I found the fox, balloons, flags, cupcake, hat and gifts in my box of pre colored and cut images. When I created these images, I used colored pencils to color them. Once, I found everything I added the Happy Birthday sentiment and the 2s to the balloons and flags.

I die cut a cloud and grassy border. I adhered everything to my card base and the card was done.

Colorful Animal Birthday Cards

March 27, 2017

It was a fun weekend of making cards using the Simon Says Stamp April 2017 Card Kit. Here are two more cards that I made using the kit.

Card One

33662470385_6c7c020bca_o

Card Two: The elephants and birds were fussy cut and popped up to hide a stamping mistake J

Details

Size:  Horizontal top fold A2 cards

Extra Details:  I started with two panels of white card stock. I used the colored inks that came in the kit to stamp the images. For card one, I made a mask for the giraffe so I could layer them together. On card two, I made a stamping mistake. GRRRR… but rather than start again, I re-stamped the elephants and birds on a scrap of white card stock, fussy cut them out, and popped them up using dimensional glue dots. I stamped my sentiments using black ink.

I used stitched rectangle dies to cut each panel before adhering them to orange card bases. The orange card stock was from my stash.

Stamps Used: Simon Says Stamp’s Cuddly Critter Accessories and Wild Cuddly Critters

Dies Used: Lawn Fawn’s Large Cross Stitched Rectangle Stackables and Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables

Birthday Animal Stack

March 25, 2017

I just got my Simon Says Stamp April 2017 Card Kit in the mail this weekend. I love the Wild Cuddly Critters Stamp Set. I also own the Cuddly Critters Accessories Stamp Set. As soon as I looked at the two sets together, I know that I would be combining the stamp sets. Here is a card I made using both sets.

Details

Size:  Vertical side fold 4.25 x 7” card

Extra Details:  I started by stamping all of the critters on white card stock. I choose not to use the penguin; he seemed out of place. I used colored pencils to color everything in. Once I was done coloring, I fussy cut all of the images out. I used a black marker to paint the edges to hide any cutting mistakes. To make the bird sit on the mouse’s head, I trimmed around his wings.

Next, I created my card base. I made a 4.25 x 7 inch card base so that I could fit all of the animals stacked up. I added some clouds to the card base for interest. I also added a strip of green plaid paper cut with a grassy border die.  I stamped the sentiment next. I used part of a sentiment from the Wild Cuddly Critters set and a sentiment form the Cuddly Critter Accessories set.

Lastly, I adhered all of my animals in a stack and the card was finished.
