Merry Christmas shaker card

Hello everyone,

I'm here with a shaker card today.  I didn't have much luck with my last shaker card I made (which was also my first one) but I love the little penguins from Mama Elephant that I just couldn't resist trying again.

I used the Arctic Penguins stamp set and I coloured the little penguin with C1 and 0 and used BG70 for the ice.  I used with my Wink of Stella clear glitter pen on the images. I do have the dies but for this one I wanted to fussy cut the images.  I am one of those who doesn't mind fussy cutting as long as I don't have to do too much of it!  :)

I also use the new Mama Elephant Peek A Frame dies and I used the window die to make the shaker.  I ran the it through my Cuttle Bug and then turned the die around and ran it through again so that it would cut both sides as one side only scores the paper.

I used Pretty Pink Posh sparkling clear 6mm sequins along with some Simon Says Stamp itty bitty 2mm sequins that came in a card kit and unfortunately can no longer remember which one.  I used the  rectangle die from the Femme Frames die set to cut out the vellum and used an A2 sized card base to put everything one.

I used the Merry Christmas die from Simon Says Stamp from last year's Christmas release and cut that out of shimmer paper I bought at Michaels.  I used Sea Glass SSS ink to stamp out the snow which is from the Arctic Penguins set.

Welcome Baby - Card

Hi everyone,

Today I have a baby card to share.  I used the Mama Elephant "Just Hatched" stamp set and dies.  I used an A2 top fold card and Hero Arts Soft Vanilla ink to stamp a patterned background with the chick and one of the little extra stamps included in the set.

I cut out of pattenred paper (6x6 pad I've had for years) and used the inside oval from the Simon Says Stamp Frames Craft dies.  I sponged the edges with Hero Arts Butter Bar ink to have it pop off the card.  I then stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx black ink and used foam tape to adhere it to the card front. The sweet little chicks were stamped with Momento black and coloured with copics (Y13 & Y15).  To finish off the chicks I used a white gel pen to add a few dots to their cheeks.  

Thanks for stopping by, see you soon!

Merry and Bright - Card share

Hello everyone,

Today I have my very first Christmas Card of the season!  

     It's an A2 size, side fold card cut in half.   I used the tree from Lawn Fawn's new "Snow Day" stamp set and used Prismacolor pencils to colour it in.  Then I used my white gel pen to add in a little dot detail.  I fussy cut it out and popped it up on form tape.  

     I used the sentiment from the set and I just love the way they did the "and".  I used Momento Tuxedo black ink.

     For the background I used one of the small dots that comes with the set and stamped it with SSS Fog ink then use my clear Wink of Stella glitter brush and went over all the little dots.  

     I then took my black gel pen and went around the edges to create a border.  Then I used a silver gel pen to go along the edge again and you know when you wonder if something will look good and you go and put your pen to the paper, the realize that you should have just left well enough alone, this was that moment!  Hahaha!  Oh well.  

Supplies used are linked throughout this post.  If there is no link on an item then it was purchased at Michaels.

That's all for now, thanks for stopping by!

Happy Birthday & Hello Cards

Hello everyone!

I have a couple of cards that I share sneak peaks on my Instagram account earlier this month.

The first card is an image from the latest Online Card Classes - Copics for Card Makers.  I used the negative from the SSS Frames dies, Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins in 6mm and the Viva Decor Pen in Ice White (JoAnn's) to make the little pearl dots.

Here are the colours I used for the flowers.  The class does end tomorrow but they will be announcing the next one soon.

For this card I used the October SSSCK "Friendship Has its Perks".  I love this stamp set.  Yes I'm a sucker for coffee cups, hehe!  I stamped the cups on Copic X-press It paper and used copics to colour them.  I then fussy cut them and popped them up on foam tape.  I used the SSS Fog ink to stamp the steam and a Copic 0.5 multiline to make the lines around the card.  I felt that it needed something to balance it out.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Baby - Card

Hello everyone,

Today I have a baby card to share.

I used a couple of Lawn Fawn sets.  An oldie but a goodie and a newer one.

For the patterned paper, I used an old pad chic which was baby themed but it's so old I can't remember what the name of it was.  I also used the Mama Elephant Femme Frames, Mama Elephant Landscape Trio Creative Cuts dies for the clouds, Lawn Fawn's Grassy border die for the grass.

I combined the two stamp sets as well as Pretty Pink Posh crystal clear
6mm sequins and MME white enamel dots that came in one of the SSSCK.

I used my copics to do the colouring and a Gelly Roll white gel pen to add in the little dots on the bunnies.

All the supplies shown were purchased through Simon Says Stamp except the copics, which were purchased my my local art store and Michaels.

Thanks for stopping by.

Lawnscaping Challenge #91 - Patterned Paper

Hello Everyone!

Today I have a card to share for the Lawnscaping Challenge.

I used the new stamp set from Lawn Fawn for Simon Says Stamp.  Unfortunately it is now sold out as it was on while supplies last during the SSS Stamptember event.  I love the images in this set and the sentiments.

I will admit that there are a couple of boo-boos on this card.  I don't know about you but I am forever putting my baby wipe down on my desk and it get either on top of or beside my projects or partial cards I'm working on and ruins them.  This card is no different but with the help of the Online Card Class - Copics for Card makers they had tips and tricks to hide mistakes.

The first one is the sentiment which I used Momento Onyx Black ink to stamp it.  I got so caught up in putting the card together, I forgot to stamp my sentiment.  Needless to say it didn't stamp out as it was popped up on foam adhesive.  I got to thinking and decided to stamp it again on card stock and fussy cut it out and then pop it up.

Number two was the baby wipe issue.  in the top right corner got wet and the ink started to bleed.  This is the reason for the leaves being popped up on the edge.  So I popped up a few of the leaves around the border.

I used the Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Duos 2 rectangle die for the panel and then just added another piece of card stock behind it and coloured the edges with a Copic marker to match the colours on the leaves and enamel dots from My Minds Eye that came in my SSSCK (unfortunately I no longer remember from which one)

Thanks for stopping by!

OCC Day 6 & 7

Hello everyone!

I know I haven't been posting much on my blog lately as we finally got the computer back tonight...Yay!!!!!  Our old one crashed so when we had the data transferred over to the new one we found out that the old one could be fixed.  So...that means I get the new computer!  **happy dance**.

Now on to Day 6 of Copics for Card Makers. I have a BIG soft spot for most anything Lawn Fawn, so when I saw these were in as the class practice images I was tickled pink.  I just love this pup from the Critters in the Burbs and the fox is just as adorable from the Critters in the Forest.

Day 7.  I love this little robot vampire!  He is just adorable.  Sandy took us through how to make the image look more realistic with shadows and highlights with difficult colours such as red, white and black.  She makes it look so easy and seamless but it's a bit trickier than it looks but super fun to do.

Here is what I did for the flowers with the reds and whites.

Thanks for stopping by!
