Bouquet of Happiness

 Hello my crafty friends! Today I have a video to share featuring a couple of cards I created using the Not 2 Shabby Shop  Bouquet of Happiness stamps.


For my first card I made a slim line card base 3 1/2" x 7 1/4" and combined the Pug In A Cup stamp using masking to create a little scene. I adore this image so much. I stamped, embossed and colored up the images using Zig clean Color Real Brush markers. 

I used a stencil from La-La Land Crafts and Distress Oxide inks to create the brick wall. I think it turned out so cute!!


For my second card I stamped and embossed the floral image all across the front of my mini slim line card panel. I then inked it up using my Distress Inks.


I stamped and embossed the sentiment and popped it up onto foam tape. And for a finishing touch I added some gems from Pink Fresh Studios.


Here are the products I used:

Not 2 Shabby : Bouquet of Happiness and Pug In A Cup
Distress Oxide Inks: Hickory Smoke, Tattered Rose
Distress Inks: Aged Mahogany, Victoria Velvet, Picked Raspberry, Spun Sugar
Zig Markers: Pug- Dark Brown, Mid Brown, Oatmeal, Pale Pink, Dark Gray  Coffee Cup- Gray Brown, Light Gray  Roses- Light Pink, Pale Pink, Mid Green, Light Green

To create the tile I used the checker stencil from the Everything Is Rosy Layering stencil set , distress inks and clear embossing powder to heat emboss and give it a shiny coat with dimension.

Espresso Your Love

Hi crafty friends! Today I am up on the Newton's Nook Designs blog sharing a fun coffee themed Valentine's Day card!!

I just adore this new Newton's Mug stamp set and I added some hearts to the mug from the Smitten Kittens and Love Emergency stamp sets. I colored the image using stamped and embossed image  using Copic markers and cut it out using the coordinating Newton's Mug Die. I love how it cuts out the space in the handle! I added lots of sparkle to the hearts.


 For the background I used the largest die from the Framework Die set, Bristol Smooth cardstock and some Distress inks in Fired Brick, Festive Berries, Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar. I blended them with an ombre' effect and stenciled some hearts using the Tumbling Hearts Stencil. The stamped and embossed sentiment is from the Love Cafe' stamps.  I splattered the background using water and some gold sparkly shimmer and adhered some iridescent sequins.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! I hope you like my card. Have a great day :)
