Miss Ink Stamps – Spook Up Some Fun Box Card

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I have a REALLY FUN box card featuring some Miss Ink Stamps ghosties that are just too cute for words! This set is adorable and the sentiments take it over the top!

To create my card, I stamped images from Boo Sheet and colored them with my copics. I used the scan-n-cut to cut them all out and adhered the supporting small images to each ghost with liquid adhesive.

Next, I cut the pieces of my box card with orange cardstock and the decorative panels from white cardstock. I inked up all the decorative panels with seedless preserves and blueprint sketch distress oxide inks. I spritzed them with water and flicked pearl and gold watercolor on them too. After they were dry, I used scrappy tape to adhere the box together.

I also used scrappy tape to add acetate strips to my ghosts and then adhere them to the different supports going across the inside of the box. I stamped a sentiment and trimmed it into a strip adhering it to the front of the box with liquid adhesive.

I didn’t like the texture my cutting plates left on the back of my box card so I cut another backing piece from white cardstock and adhered it with liquid glue so I have a clean white space on the back to write a fun message to the recipient too!

Products used on my card today:
Miss Ink Stamps Boo Sheet stamps
MFT Stamps Outside the Box Level Up dies
Distress Oxide Ink – blueprint sketch, seedless preserves
Scrappy tape – 1/4 inch
Ultra bond liquid adhesive
Copic markers

Pretty Pink Posh – Caroling Critters

Welcome everyone! Thanks for stopping by today. I’m sharing a clean and simple Christmas card featuring the Caroling Critters from Pretty Pink Posh. I love this set but with no coordinating dies I decided to come up with a window style design for them.

I stamped the image on white cardstock and colored it with my copic markers. Then I used the Trinity Stamps Embossed Edge Rectangle dies to cut a panel from kraft cardstock. For my window opening I used an old MFT arched stax set. I lined the kraft with foam strips and popped it on the scene panel.

I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from the Joy stamp set and trimmed it into a strip. I added some foam tape to the back of the, doubling the layer in the center so it would lay nicely and placed it over the scene.

I cut another embossed rectangle from red cardstock and adhered it to a white card base and then adhered my scene panel to that.

Moving on to finishing touches, I just added some glossy accents to critter noses and unicorn Stickles to the hat pom poms and open music notes.

I found that this layout idea would work great for me to stamp multiple scenes out and color on the go. Just an idea since it might work for you too.

Miss Ink Stamps – Trick or Treat Photo Booth Strip

Hello everyone! I’m popping in with a fun card featuring some adorable Halloween critters from Miss Ink Stamps. I got this set last year and love it so much! I was super happy to be able to pull it out again and ink it up.

Today I’ve paired it with some great ink blending and an MFT Stamps photo booth strip die for a fun design element.

I started by stamping and coloring the critters from Boo Crew with my copic markers. Then I used the scan-n-cut to cut them out. Next, I cut the photo booth strip die from orange cardstock and inked the edges up with black soot distress ink. Then I cut a black panel slightly smaller than that and flicked some pearl and gold watercolor on it. Once it was dry I glued the two together and added my critters to it.

Next, I ink blended a panel with distress oxides in wilted violet, seedless preserves and twisted citron. Then I spritzed the panel with water and flicked some watered down black paint on it too. Once the panel was dry I die cut it with a Trinity Stamps Modern Embossed Edge Rectangle die. I adhered the panel to a card base and then popped the photo booth strip up with foam tape.

Last, I stamped a few sentiments from the set on a strip of cardstock and trimmed them apart. I used a combination of liquid glue and foam strips to adhere them in place. For finishing touches I adhered a scattering of glow-in-the-dark stars from Twiddler’s Nook and added a little glossy accents to the critters eyes.

MFT Stamps – Sending You HUGS

Hi friends! I hope you’re having a fabulous day so far! I’m popping in with a simple and sweet thinking of you card featuring some goodies from MFT Stamps. I recently picked up these adorable Mini Meows kitties and couldn’t wait to play with them!

This whole card started with the need to stamp and color these cute kitties! So I chose 3 and colored them with my copics. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. Seeing how perfectly they fit in the photo booth strip die I just had to use it. So I took a piece of white cardstock slightly smaller and ink blended peacock feathers and tumbled glass distress oxide inks. I spritzed it with water and glued it to the back of the photo booth strip frame. I added the kitties next.

For the background panel, I blended tattered rose, worn lipstick and candied apple distress oxide inks and spritzed it with water. Once it was dry I die cut the panel with the largest Stitched Rectangle die from Lawn Fawn. It took me a minute but I die cut the Sending You Hugs sentiment and tried different arrangements. Once I decided how I liked it, I adhered the first layer down. Then I die cut the letters 3 more times and glued them on top for some dimension. I added foam tape to the back of the photo strip and popped it on the panel next.

I used liquid glue to adhere the panel to a white card base and moved on to finishing touches. Those are pretty small here but I still like the effect they make. I used black glaze pen on the kitties’ eyes and a little dab of glossy accents to their noses.

At the last minute I thought it would be adorable to take one of the heart speech bubbles and add it to that middle kitty. So I cut it from white, colored the heart with copics and glued it in place. I couldn’t leave it alone though so I added glossy accents to the heart too! So cute!!!

For fun I have a Christmas shaker card to share with you that features a whopping 4 embellishments from the shop! I also have to say that I did all my stamping using the new Pressure Pal tool and I absolutely love it!

To create this card, I stamped a couple of images from MFT Stamps Polar Opposites set and colored them with my copics. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and set them aside. I took a white panel measuring 4×5.25 inches and die cut the Rectangle Peek-a-Boo Window from it. This is the start of my shaker window. I lined the back with scrappy tape and adhered a piece of acetate. Next, I placed the panel in my MISTI and stamped a sentiment from MFT Reindeer Games below the window.

Then I took a white panel larger than the window and blended Distress Oxide inks in blueprint sketch and chipped sapphire. I spritzed it with water and flicked some gold watercolor on it. While that was drying, I added a double layer of foam tape to the back of my window panel and sprinkled in my shaker bits. Today I chose Twiddler’s Nook Snowy Day, Princess Rings and Pixie Dust micro beads!

I removed the release paper, added my inked panel to seal the shaker mechanism and popped the whole thing on a white card base. Next, I added foam squares to the back of my images and placed them at the bottom of the window.

Moving on to finishing touches, i added a scattering of Twiddler’s Nook gold baubles to the design. Then glossy accents to the noses and feet and unicorn Stickles to the sweater and hat. Last, I added black glaze pen to the critter eyes to help them shine.

Super cute and ready for my Christmas card stash!

MFT Stamps – No One Stacks Up

Hey crafty friends! I have a super adorable and fun card to share with you today featuring some MFT Stamps goodies paired with beautiful ink blending and a Lawn Fawn backdrop die. Let’s get started!

I started this card with an idea in mind so I grabbed my inks and set to work blending the background panel first. These are distress oxide inks in tattered rose, dried marigold and abandoned coral. One of my very favorite combos ever! I spritzed it with water and blotted it dry. Then I flicked watered down black acrylic paint on the panel and set it aside to dry.

While I was waiting I die cut 3 of the MFT Stamps Out of the Box dies from kraft cardstock. I used a blending brush and Lawn Fawn walnut ink to darken some of the edges to give it depth. I used liquid glue to adhere the layers together and then stack my boxes too.

Next, I stamped the panda and a flag from MFT Stamps Weather With You stamp set and colored it with my copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them all out and used liquid glue to adhere them inside the stacked boxes.

Next, I stamped the sentiment and used a banner die from the Lawn Fawn Flippin’ Awesome set to cut it out. Now that the inked panel was dry, I ran it through my die cutter with the Lawn Fawn Polka Heart backdrop die. Next, we assemble everything!

I used liquid adhesive to adhere the background panel to a white card base. Then added foam squares to the back of the sentiment banner and stack of boxes and popped them in place.

For finishing touches, I added black glaze pen to the panda’s eyes and glossy accents to the flagpole and panda’s nose.

Isn’t this just a sweet little card to share with a friend!?! I love the critters in this set and all of the different sentiments too! So many options to mix and match!

MFT Stamps – No One Stacks Up To You

Hello again! I’m stopping by today with a super fun and adorable mini slimline card featuring an MFT Stamps set called Weather With You. I absolutely love these critters and had so much fun coloring and stacking them sky high!

I started by stacking my stamps up to see how many I could fit on a mini slimline card front. Then I stamped them out and colored them with my copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and set them aside.

Next, I pulled out two Trinity Stamps die sets – mini slimline card and envelope set and mini slimline stitched layers stack. I cut the second-to-largest stitched panel from a light blue cardstock and stamped it with MFT Stamps Diagonal Stripes Background stamp in Lawn Fawn mermaid ink. Then I used the scalloped panel die from the mini slimline card dies set and cut it from yellow cardstock.

I created a mini slimline card base by folding a 6×6 white cardstock panel in half to create a 3×6 card. I used liquid adhesive to adhere the yellow scalloped panel to the front. Then foam tape to the back of the striped panel and adhered it in place. Then I used liquid glue to adhere all my critters together and lined the back of them with foam tape as well.

I stamped a sentiment and die cut it with a banner die from the mini slimline card and envelope set and added foam strips to the back of that. I adhered the sentiment banner and critters at the same time to help with placement.

For finishing touches, I added black glaze pen to the critter’s eyes. Then glossy accents to their noses and the fish bowl. Finally, I glued a scattering of red clay hearts across the design and also put one in the panda’s hand because it was just too perfect!

Aren’t these guys just the sweetest?!? I absolutely adore them and can’t wait to play again soon!

MFT Stamps – Friend-A-Saurus

Hi again! I’m back with my second entry into the MFT Stamps Wednesday Sketch Challenge and it’s SO CUTE! I just had to pull out these sweet dinos that I got for Christmas! I’ve only used them one other time and was so happy to ink them up again!

To create my card, I started by choosing the image I wanted to use out of the set, stamped and colored them with my copics. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and set them all aside. Next, I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment on black cardstock, then cut it out with a Pink & Main large sentiment strip.

For my background, I die cut the largest Trinity Stamps embossed edge rectangle from kraft cardstock. I pulled out a retired MFT Stamps arch stax die set and cut 3 of those from the left side. Next, I stamped the MFT STamps diagonal stripes background stamp on the panel in brown ink. Then I used a blending brush to ink up the edges for a little dimension. While I had the blending brushes out, I added some of the brown ink to the bottom of the arch cutouts and then went back with an olive green ink on the tops.

I added foam tape to the back of the striped panel and adhered it to a white card base. Then I used liquid glue to add the arches back in to their windows. Next, I added foam squares to the back of the dinos and popped them in place. I added foam strips to the back of the sentiment and bird and added them last.

For finishing touches, I just added some fun white gel pen highlights to all the images. I just love the earthy tones of this card! It’s super fun and would be great for a girl or a guy!

My Favorite Things – Sketch Challenege

Hey friends! I’m stopping by this weekend with a couple of really fun cards I created using the MFT Stamps Wednesday Sketch Challenge sketch. Here’s a look at the sketch.

For some reason this one really inspired me and I immediately pulled my stamps out and started coloring. Today we have another Super Friend card because I’m so in love with those critters!

I started my card by stamping and coloring the images from Super Friend. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. Using the colors of their outfits, I found a few distress oxide colors to blend for my background. Today I tried cracked pistachio, dusty concord and chipped sapphire. Then I spritzed the panel with water and also flicked some pearl and gold watercolor on it.

I used my Trinity Stamps embossed edge circle stack to die cut 3 white circles and glued the foliage images on the back side of them. Then I glued those to my inked panel. I added foam squares to my critters and popped them in place next.

I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from the set on black cardstock and used a Pink & Main Sunny Greetings sentiment strip die to cut it out. I added it with foam strips and moved on to finishing touches.

For those I started with glossy accents on the critter noses, chest emblem and glasses. Then I used my Wink of Stella glitter brush pen on the stars and decided this card was finished.

It’s SUPER adorable and will be fabulous to send to a great friend for a pick me up!

MFT Stamps – Sending You Hugs

Hello everyone! I’m popping in today with a really fun card share featuring some MFT Stamps products that I just love! These Super Friend critters are just too cute and so fun to create with! I have had this Sending You Hugs die for a while and was excited to finally put it to use too!

To create this fun card, I started by inking up a panel with distress oxide inks in chipped sapphire, blueprint sketch and cracked pistachio. Once that was blended, I spritzed it with water. Then I came back and flicked some gold watercolor over the panel. I set it aside to dry before die cutting it with the sending you hugs die.

Next, I stamped a couple of the critters from Super Friends and colored them with my copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and went back to my background panel to create the shaker mechanism. For that, I trimmed down some acetate and adhered it to the back of the die cut area with scrappy tape. Then I lined the panel with thick foam tape, creating a well in the center for my shaker bits. I piled some Twiddler’s Nook Wishing on Rainbow Stars confetti in the center of my white card base, removed the backing paper from the foam tape and adhered my panel to it. Voila! All sealed up and ready to shake, shake, shake!

I added foam squares to the back of the super friends and popped them in place. Then I took a sentiment from their set, stamped and heat embossed it in white. I trimmed that into a strip and popped it up with foam strips. This is when I remember those cute love speech bubbles that I had in my stash and thought they would be a great addition. So I die cut them from white cardstock, colored the hearts with red copics and glued them down with liquid glue.

Moving on to finishing touches, I simply added glossy accents to the koala’s nose and lion’s shirt emblem.

This card is so happy and so much fun too! Wouldn’t you just smile pulling it out of an envelope? I sure would!

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
