Happy Fall

Happy Fall! This is Tiffany and today I'm sharing a fall themed card. I've already made a few Christmas cards this season and I felt inspired to make a fall creation. I used Hello Bluebird stamps and dies to make my card, these products can be purchased in the Butterfly Reflections, Ink. online store. I started my card by die cutting the Hello Bluebird Oak Tree Scene Die, I then ink blended the die cut pieces, spritzed them with water and splattered them with white and gold paint. Once the pieces were dry I assembled the background. I stamped images from Hello Bluebird's Spooky Spellers and Pumpkin Time in Memento Rich Cocoa ink, colored them with Copic markers, and cut them out. I bought the Spooky Spellers set right before Halloween knowing that I use the cute critters for any occasion. The "Happy Fall" sentiment is from the Pumpkin Time set, I carefully inked up half the sentiment at a time and stamped the words into the signs. I hope you've enjoyed my fa…

Snow Angels

Hello and happy Wednesday!  I hope you are all having a good week so far!  This is Crystal here today sharing a shaker card using the adorable new Snow Angel stamp set by Mama
Elephant.  Today's card really brings me back to my childhood and the very cold and snowy winters we had growing up in northern Maine.  While all of my brothers wanted to have snowball fights (usually filled with ice, might I add) I wanted to make pretty snow angels.  I only wish I had all of these adorable woodland creatures to play with back then!

The base of this A2 sized card is made from red cardstock.  I cut a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of white cardstock and stamped the outline of the snow angels in a dark brown ink.  I placed this directly on the red card base.  Next, I created the frame from a dark brown cardstock using two rectangle dies.  I adhered a piece of Hero Arts clear acetate to the back of the frame.  I lined the frame with foam adhesive so that it would allow plenty of space for the gli…

'Tis the season...

Hi everyone!  I'm back on the blog today with a fun holiday card featuring some old and new sets from Avery Elle.  I love to mix and match stamp and die sets from my collection to create new scenes!

To start, I ink blended the background using distress oxide colors picked raspberry and mermaid lagoon.  Then the background was splatted with water and white gouache paint.  I mixed glitz glitter gel with gloss super heavy gel medium and used a spatula to spread across the bottom of the card.  You could use any type of glitter paper for this purpose, but I like the translucent look of the heavy gel.  The panel was then left to dry overnight.

On a piece of Arches cold pressed watercolor paper, I stamped images from snow much fun and polar peek-a-boo pals using versafine clair ink.  Images were then colored using zig clean color brush pens and a water brush.  Images were cut using the coordinating dies.  Then, using postage stamp die and snow caps die I cut the background and border fr…

Christmas Treats

Hello and happy Monday! I hope you all are having a great start to your week. Today I'm sharing some fun Christmas cards inspired by this month's BRI November Mood Board. The colors for this month are typically thought of as Autumn colors, but I thought they were perfect for these Christmas baking scenes.

To start I used an assortment of images from Lawn Fawn stamp sets Oh Snap, Out of this World, Baked with Love, Booyah, and Christmas Dreams. My images were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I altered the flowers I stamped from Booyah with a black micronpen and added leaves between the petals.

To create the background, I used two different sizes from the Small Dotted Rectangle Stackables Lawn Cuts to cut out the pattern paper and Kraft paper. For the sentiment, I stamped Merry Christmas with Distress Ink Fossilized Amber before heat embossing it in Lawn Fawndamentals Gold embossing powder.

I assembled the kraft and pattern paper with a tape runner and attached them to th…

Tagging Time

Hey there!!  Super happy that the weather here is finally cooling down.  It was only in the high 80's this week.  I can keep hoping right?  Well to help me feel cooler here I set out to create my favorite things to make.  Tags.  Who doesn't like a great tag right??

So here are a few cute little tags I made:

Here is how I created the tags:

I stamped each penguin image from the Little Penguin Agenda stamp set and colored them with my Copic markers and cut them out with the .  I then die cut tags from the Scallop Tag Trio,  and other tags dies I had on hand.  Using Gina K Amalgam ink I stamped the sentiments from Mini Merry Sentiments onto each tag.  I adhered the images with thin foam adhesive and then tied the baker's twine to finish them off.    If you notice my last tag has an image from the Little Reindeer Agenda set. I had one already colored in my stash. Love it still!

I love how they turned out and most importantly how fast they were.  Especially since the holidays ar…

Warm Winter Wishes by Popsiclesticks

Hello crafty friends, Davina here on the Blog, and I have a pink and raspberry long slimline card to share with you today. I used a Hello Sweetums stamp set called Snowy Smooches and the coordinating dies for all of the images, and new Trinity Stamps dies for the slimline stitched and scalloped layers, and and the stitched hillside.

I really love making slimline cards and the fact that I can get so many images onto my scenes. These new dies make it incredibly easy to put together these unique sized cards. The finished card base is 8.5 x 3.5, which makes it possible to cut both the panel and the cardbase from one piece of paper. For this bright wintery scene I cut the largest image panel from a piece of pink glittery pattern paper I had in my stash. I’ve been all about using my patterned papers these past few months. Then I cut 3 scalloped layers from Bristol smooth cardstock. Two of the layers I cut with stitched hillsides to create my snow, and the 3rd I inked up with Distress Oxide …
