Rub A Dub Dub | Lawn Fawn

I just loved how this adorable baby card came together for me so easily. I first started by colouring all of the stamped images, this was the first time I had used Spectrum Markers and I don’t mind colouring with them at all.

I then moved onto cutting out the background panel with Lawn Fawn’s Gingham and Spring Plaid Papers using the MFT Die-namics Blueprints 27.

I layed out all my images first before gluing them down, then I knew which ones I wanted to single layer or pop dot dot up for demension. I added Nuvo Glitter Sparkle to the bubbles for some glimmer. It’s makes the card look so great! 

The sentiment is stamped with Versamark Onyx Black ink and die cut with a fishtail edge also from the MFT Blueprints 27 set. The panel is then adheard onto a #110lbs White card stock base and our card is complete.

You're the Best Mom | Simon Says Stamp

This is the last card for now that I created from the Simon Say's Stamp April card kit 2018, I'm sure there will be more made.

I stamped the butterflies and leaves on Bristol smooth paper and colored them in with Zig real clean brush markers. Cut the Lawn Fawn Really Rainbow paper with a border edge die, for the background. Then stamped the sentiment directly onto the #110lbs white card stock base with Versamark Onyx Black Ink and heat set it.

The butterflies were then adhered with pop dots and colored half bubble acrylic drew drops were added. Glitter Nuvo gloss sparkle was add to the butterflies wings for some added twinkle.

Stained Glass Mother's Day Card | Simon Says Stamp

Happy Friday, it's finally here! Here is one of my favorite cards out of the all the cards that I made from the Simon Says Stamp April 2018 Card Kit.

With this card I used both the stencil and the stamps to create the background panel then I die cut it out with the MFT Wonky Stitched Stax. I stamped the butterflies on Bristol smooth paper and colored them in with Zig Real Clean Brush Markers and added Nuvo Gloss glitter sparkle to there wings and adhered them with foam tape. I cut a second panel using the Wonky stitched die and stamped the sentiment with Versavine Onxy Black Ink and used a border edge die just under the sentiment. I attached a piece of fun foam behind the panel to raise it and adhered it to the background panel. The entire panel is then mounted onto a piece of #110 white card stock card base and clear sparkling sequin mix are added for some detail.

Happy Mother's Day | Papertrey Ink

What a busy week it has been, and the weather has been like it's November all over again. Yesterday we had snow, sleet, and rain! I thought it was April but it's more like our fourth Winter again.

I pulled this card out of my stash today, it was a Mother's Day card I made last year that I had never posted, so I must of completed it once it was too late to mail.  So I though it would be great to blog it for today to break up for what's been a week full of butterflies.

This is my go to Papertrey The Sweet Life set I constantly go back to time and time again, I love these roses, and I am constantly trying to figure out what inks work together. Since acquiring my MISTI's using layers stamp sets have gotten so much easier to use.

You're the best Mom

Here is another Mother's Day card I have made from the SSS April card kit Beautiful Day!
The background is Lawn Fawn's really rainbow designer paper die cut with MFT Blueprints 13 to create the border and Pretty Pink Posh's Borders 2 to die cut the edging.

I stamped the butterflies on Bristol smooth with Versamark Onxy black ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. Then colored them with Zig Clear Real Brush markers, the vibrant pigments of these markers are amazing. I stamped the sentiment directly onto the side folding white card base and adhered it to the rainbow panel. I attached the leaves and then foam mounted the butterflies for dimension and added Nuvo blizzard dew drops onto the leaves and glitter gloss sparkles onto the butterflies for some sparkles. There is your card for today :)

Hava a Beautiful Day | Simon Says Stamp

I was anxiously awaiting this kit and I finally received it Friday the 13th as I wanted to get going on Mother's Day cards and that is exactly what I did, this is only one of the many cards I'll be sharing shortly in the future.

I started off with the background by using the SSS stencil butterflies and an assortment of Distress Oxide Inks. Then die cut the panel with the MFT wonky stitched rectangle stax border, I also cut a piece of white card stock using the same MFT die and die cut the edge with PPP scallop borders die.
Stamped the sentiment in onyx black versafine ink, for a crisp black image and stamped and colored the butterfly and leaves with Zig real color brush markers. I added some nuvo raspberry jewel drops and glitter to the butterflies wings.

You're a Furever Friend | My Favorite Things

I love this buffy colored kitty, this would be a great friendship card or a pet adoption. It is bright and cheerful yet clean and simple.

I first off colored the buff kitten with Copics then started creating my background. I die cut the panel using the MFT stitched dome stax into a piece of Bristol smooth and also die cut the outside border. I then ink blended the dome insert masking off the top and bottom, using distress inks. I spritzed the background with a bit of water and shimmer spray and set it aside to dry.

While the background was drying, I cut a narrow piece of rainbow striped designer paper for the edging to give it a pop of color to complete the card. I adhered it onto a #110lbs white card base and foam taped the kitten, mouse and sentiment for some dimension.

Happy Purrthday | My Favorite Things

What a cheerful birthday card, with a rainbow background. I love creating designs like this with distress oxide inks and stencils, no two images are ever a-like

I colored my silver kitten with Copic markers and gave him his favorite dish of seafood entree' for dinner. I propped him up with foam tape on a black stamped sentiment with white embossing powder and added a second piece of patterned pattern to stand out.
Some glossy accents were put onto the kitties bowl and the heart for some shine and once dried the panel is adhered onto a #110lbs white card base.

I'm Grumpy When You're Not Here | My Favorite Things

Don't our kitties all have these days, when there owners have to go to work but we'd rather just stay home and cuddle them. A clean and simple card, with this multi colored kitty sitting in the window. I colored the kitty image with Copics and die cut the window out of patterned designer paper. I also die cut the window several times out of heavier white card stock and layered it for dimension. Before adhering it all onto the card base I stenciled a cloud scene where the kitty would be gazing out the window.

Once everything was set and dry, I pop dotted the kitty so he was raised on the ledge with his toy fish and gave him a birdy friend saying waving hello. I added a sentiment stamped on black card stock and embossed with white embossing powder, it stands out nice and bold. The entire panel is adheard onto a #110lbs white card base.
