Soak Up The Sun

Hi everyone! Today over on the La-La Land Crafts blog we are creating cards with a "Tropical" theme. Thinking back to when I visited Hawaii and the turtles that swam in the waters inspired me to create this card: 

I made a slimline card featuring the adorable penguin from the Just Chill stamp set. (All products and links are below) I stamped, embossed and colored her up using Copic markers. For the scalloped layer I used the second to largest die from the Scalloped Rectangles die and did partial die-cutting technique.


Using Distress Oxide Inks and the Summer Is Here Layering Stencil I created an ocean background. I made a sandy shore layer to stamp and emboss the sentiment. The turtle was fun to create. I colored it using Copic markers and added the eyes using a black gel pen.


Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you like my card and that I inspired you to create today. Have a great day :)

Have a Dog-gone Great Day!

Hello my crafty friends! Today over on the La-La Land Crafts blog we are featuring projects using the LLLC background stamps or stencils. Here is what I created:


I created a card using the Wood Planks background stamps. I thought it made the perfect wood floor accent for my card! The adorable pups are from the Pardon My Frenchie Clear stamps. (Product list and links below) First I stamped, embossed and colored up the adorable pups using Copic markers. For the background panel I cut out a rectangle from the Spring Has Sprung paper pack to use for wallpaper. For the molding I used the Build-A-Frame Stitched Large Die. 


To decorate the wall I created a picture frame and stamped another pup and sentiment. For a finishing touch I added the ball cut from the Double Stitched Circles die. I layered this panel onto a scalloped rectangle and adhered to a 4in x 5.5in card base. 
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day :)

Newton's Nook Designs June Release Day 4

 

Hi everyone! I'm so excited to share the reveals for Day 4 of the Newton's Nook Designs June Release. Today we have two new roundabout stamp sets! Here is what I created:


Using the new BBQ Roundabout I stamped, embossed and colored up the images with Copic markers. This is such a fun summer themed stamp set! I cut it out using the scalloped circle from the Circle Frames Die that coordinates perfectly with the Roundabout stamps. For the background layer I used the Gingham Stencil to dry emboss and add texture. 


I cut a layer of red checkered patterned paper and trimmed it with black cardstock. I stamped and embossed the sentiment to create a fun summer BBQ themed card!


For my second card I stamped and embossed the new Seashell Roundabout stamp and sentiment onto the scalloped rectangle from the Frames & Flags Die Set with gold embossing powder. I then colored up the seashells using very light colors of Copic markers. 


To add a finishing touch I added some tinted flatback pearls. I really like how this card turned out with the pastel color scheme :)

Newton's Nook Designs June Release Day 2

 


Hi everyone! I'm so excited to share with you the Day 2 reveals for the Newton's Nook Designs June Release!  Today we are featuring two new stamps and coordinating dies along with a layering Retro Sun & Palms Stencil! Here is what I created:


For my first card I created a serene scene using the new Summer Moments stamp set and coordinating dies. I stamped, embossed and colored them using Copic markers. For the blue ocean and sky background I used Distress Oxides inks along with the Clouds Stencil and Waves Stencil. I added some Nuvo Glimmer Paste to the waves to give it a sparkly finish.


For the sand I cut a strip out with the Land Borders Die and inked it up with Distress Inks and ink splatter. Then I stamped and embossed the sentiment. I love the little tote bag and seashell images that come in this set as well!

For my second card I used the new Retro Sun and Palms Stencil. I inked up the stencil off center and used blues for the water and pinks, yellows and oranges for the sun. I love how this retro stencil takes me back to the '80s and is reminiscent of the OP brand. Using black ink I used the palm trees and birds over the top. 

Then I colored up the kitty from the new Newton's Seashell stamp with Copics and used the coordinating die to cut him out. I embellished with some iridescent sequins and colored up some sand below the kitty.

Newton's Nook Designs June Release Day 1

 

Hi everyone! I'm so excited to share with you the Newton's Nook Designs Day 1 reveals for the June release. Today we are featuring 2 new stamp sets and coordinating dies along with a Fireworks Stencil. Here is what I created:


Newton's Nook Designs Fireworks shaker card

For my first card I used the new Newton's 4th of July stamps and dies and the new stencil. I stamped, embossed and colored up this cutie using my Copic markers. I cut him out using the coordinating die. For the background I ink blended using Distress Inks and stenciled over it with the new Fireworks stencil and Nuvo Glimmer Paste. To create the shaker I used a circle die to cut the opening on my scalloped layer from the Frames & Flags Die. I added the window and filled it using some sparkly iridescent sequins and popped up the layer using double sided adhesive foam tape. 


I stamped and embossed the sentiment onto the front panel and embellishes with some of the stamped stars. It's super hard to take pics of shaker cards but I hope you can see how shimmery sparkly this shaker is!!

Cheeseburger Stamp Fast Food Card

For my second card I stamped, embossed and colored up this adorable cheeseburger using Copic markers. This little stamp set is perfect for a BBQ invitation or to give to a friend that loves to grill or eat burgers! I inked the background of the panel using Distress Inks.


I used the Slimline Frames & Portholes die to create the scalloped layer. I used some fun and colorful striped paper for the bottom panel of my card. This card was quick and easy to create! I hope you like it!

Thinking of You

Hi everyone! Today on the La-La Land Crafts blog we are featuring projects using the theme: "Sympathy/Thinking of You". I created a card featuring this sweet little bird from the A Little Note Clear Stamps set. 


To stamp this little bird I first used a light ink color for the outline to give a no-line coloring effect. I then used a variety of blue and gray inks in my stash to stamp inside the outline. To add more detail I  added shading with Copic Markers.


I stamped the birdhouse die using gray ink and the Wood Plank stamp. Then I ink blended the background on the scalloped rectangle. I cut out the vines in light green cardstock and inked over them with Distress Inks. I added the sentiment and for a finishing touch I added some light blue gemstones.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you like my card. Have a great day :)

Sending You A Birthday Pug

Hi everyone! Today I am sharing this card over on the Newton's Nook Design's Blog featuring the oh so cute Pug Hugs stamp set.

I stamped and heat embossed the images. The adorable balloons with the hearts are from the Delightful Doxies stamp set. I colored them all using Copic Markers. I cut them using my Scan 'n Cut but there are coordinating dies available for these images. For the background I cut out the scalloped rectangle from the Framework Die set. Then I ink blended it using Distress Inks in Peacock Feathers, Salvaged Patina, Broken China and Tumbled Glass.


 I thought it would be so cute to add the balloons and some twine for the strings. I popped them up using double sided foam tape. For a finishing touch I added some iridescent sequins and also added  sparkle marker over the balloons and birthday hat.

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

Today Is Going To Be Pawesome
