Jane’s Doodles – Have a Brew-Tea-Ful Day Outside the Box Card

Welcome, welcome! Thanks for stopping by today. I’m sharing a fun box card and a tag using the recently release Tea Time digital stamp set from Jane’s Doodles. This set is packed full of images so I printed everything and just started coloring for fun. In the end I had extra images after arranging my box card so I made a sweet little tag for the heck of it too!

After coloring the images, I went digging through my paper stash for cardstock or patterned paper that coordinated with the colors I had used. I landed on these fun prints from Pink & Main’s All Occasions Florals paper pad. I cut all of the elements for my Outside the Box card from white cardstock, including the cloud layers. I also cut the cloud layers from vellum and stacked them behind but in the end, that gets covered up so you could skip it.

After building the box and adding the decorative elements on the sides and back, I added all of my colored images to the different layers. In the end, I chose a sentiment from the Brew-Tea-Ful stamp set. I added the card folded up into my MISTI and stamped it down on the upper right side of the arch.

Then, for a little extra something, I took the hearts from the Tea Time set I had colored, added them to acetate picks and adhered them with glue dots. I love the look of the hearts floating in the air.

Now, in a completely different color palette, I have a simple little tag that will be perfect to attach to a tea themed gift. I used a craft knife to cut a slit in the teacup so I could slide the teabag inside of it. The sentiment stamped on the teapot is also from Brew-Tea-Ful.

I hope you enjoyed today’s projects!

Pink & Main – Release Day | Sending Cheer

Happy Friday everyone! It’s release day for Pink & Main and, once again, it’s packed full of cuteness! Much to my happiness are more of the sweet bears, which I absolutely had to create with right away!

***CORRECTION*** We had a little mix up and release day is next week. So here’s a fun sneak peek of one of the new sets coming your way. Sorry about that.

I immediately wanted to create a sweet little scene with these bears pulling a wagon full of happy mail. There are a bundle of options in the set but I was very drawn to the envelopes. So I stamped and colored the images with copic markers and used the coordinating dies to cut everything out. I glued the wagon handle to the bear’s hand and figured out how my spacing was going to work – landscape or portrait.

I decided on landscape because it filled the space so perfectly. Then I grabbed the double stitched dome dies and cut the middle size from white cardstock. I used my ergonomic blending brushes to add blue sky and green grass to it before stamping my sentiment in the top center.

I used the largest layered A2 rectangle die to cut a piece of Year Round Plaid paper and adhered it to a white card base with EZ Squeeze liquid glue. I popped the dome up with foam tape and then added my images with foam squares too.

My scene was a little empty so I pulled out some clay hearts from my stash and also added the two bees from Spring Snow Globe Scenes to fill things in. For finishing touches I added Stickles to the bee’s wings and the heart on the letter. Then I came in with glossy accents for the bear’s noses and stamps on the envelopes.

Be sure to head to the Pink & Main shop to check out the entire release that’s available now!

Pink & Main – You Party Animal with Flock and Glitter

Welcome everyone! Thanks for stopping by. Today I’m over on the Pink & Main blog with a fun birthday card featuring the super fine glitter, flock and sparkling flock too! It’s definitely got bling and texture everywhere!

I started my card wanting to play with that really fun stack of gifts die cut from a few releases ago. I hadn’t gotten a chance and today a fun idea struck me. So I cut the stack from white cardstock 3 times and glued them together with EZ Squeeze liquid glue.

Next, I took a white panel cut down to 4×5.25 inches and the EZ Tear Tape that is 1/2 inch wide. I added strips of the tape at an angle across a few inches of the panel. I used my bone folder to really burnish the adhesive tape down and then removed the release paper one strip at a time starting with the center and working my way out. First, I added ocean wave super fine glitter, then I switched to sparkling fuzzy monster flock with glitter and finished the outside strips with fuzzy monster flock.

Next, I took another white panel and embossed it with the confetti embossing folder. I cut it in half at an angle and adhered it on either side of the flocked strips with liquid glue. After the glue was dry, I trimmed off anything hanging over the edge. This panel was so cool on it’s own, I was tempted not to cover it with anything! Haha.

However, there was the matter of that fun stack of gifts. So I started playing with placement and digging in my stash to see what I wanted to pair with it. That was so much fun! I ended up landing on this sweet duck from Party Animal. I stamped and colored him with copic markers, then used the coordinating die to cut him out. Next, I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from the same set and used the cool sentiment strip dies in the Sunny Greetings die set to cut it out.

When I started laying out my design I thought the white stack of gifts was lacking. So I went digging again and found this awesome green glitter paper from the Spring Glitter paper pad, cut it out and added it to the top. Perfection! I added the gifts to the panel with liquid glue and put a giant acrylic block on top while it dried because of all the texture underneath.

Then I added the sentiment strip with foam and the duck with a combo of foam and liquid glue. Finally, I popped the whole thing up on a white card base with foam strips and added a little touch of glossy accents to the image for some shine.

Coffee Loving Cardmakers – Hi Cutie

Happy Tuesday everyone! It’s time for tea over on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog today! I finally took a moment to ink up the adorable My Favorite Person stamp set from the last Mama Elephant release and it did not disappoint! SOOOOO CUTE!

I colored my critters first and then went in to the mugs and hearts with a bit of a muted rainbow palette just for something different. Then I chose a variety of the small sentiments in the set and heat embossed each heart with a different one.

Next, I stamped and heat embossed one of the regular strip sentiment on black cardstock and die cut it with a sentiment strip from my stash.

When it came to arranging my images, I kind of wanted the sentiments to read left and down to the right…so that’s what I did. I added that cute bear to the sentiment strip with a little liquid glue on his feet and popped them up with foam squares. Then I added the stack of mugs to the center and finished things off with the sweet fox and mouse on the right.

I added some teal strips to the top and bottom of my yellow dotted background and popped them up on a white card base. Then to finish things off and tie in the white card base I added some white clay hearts from the Twiddler’s Nook Sweethearts embellishment mix.

Pink & Main – Something Beautiful in Each Day

Welcome, welcome everyone! Thanks so much for stopping by today. I’m over on the Pink & Main blog playing with the latest release – mostly the new gorgeous heat embossing powders because these colors are everything!!! Oh my word, I love them!

Today I chose a sentiment from the new Here For You stamp set and heat embossed it in Grape Soda embossing powder on a tag. I cut a second tag from teal textured cardstock and tied them together with orange ribbon. I tied a bow and added to the top of the tag for a little decoration with EZ Squeeze liquid glue.

For my background, I just had to play with the new Ornate Tile embossing folder! It’s beautiful too! I embossed orange cardstock and used my blending brush to deepen the edge of the embossing with orange ink. I popped the panel up on a white card base and glued my tags in place next.

Wanting to add more color to my card and play with the embossing powders more, I smeared the embossing ink pad across a scrap of white cardstock and sprinkled the Bubblegum color of powder on it. I heated it up for a gorgeous swatch of the color. Then I used the small heart in the tag die set to create my own shiny embellishments for my card!

I added all of them with foam squares for some dimension and now my card is all finished. Isn’t it so pretty?!? I just love all these bright colors!

Pink & Main – Bugs and Kisses

Happy Friday my friends! I don’t know about you but it’s been a long week and I’m really looking forward to this weekend to relax and recoup.

Today I’m on the Pink & Main blog with a little inspiration featuring the Stamp of the Month for April – Lady Luck. I adore these sweet images and can’t actually believe just how much I love the color palette that came together on today’s card.

I started today by choosing and image from Lady Luck, stamping it and coloring it with my copic markers. I used the coordinating die to cut it out and went digging in my stash to see if any of my background dies inspired me.

The moment I pulled out the Plaid Cover dies I knew this was it! I cut one layer from teal cardstock matching the colors in the umbrella and the other layer from the white glitter cardstock in the Metallics Glitter paper pack. Next, I took an A2 white cardstock panel and inked it up with scattered straw fading into squeezed lemonade distress oxide inks. I flicked water on the panel and let it air dry before adhering the plaid layers over the top.

Next, I chose a sentiment from the set and used the coordinating die to cut it out as well. I love it when sets do this. It’s such an awesome option to have when creating. Then I added foam squares and strips to the image and sentiment and popped them up on the card front.

For finishing touches I added unicorn Stickles to the dots on the umbrella and glossy accents to the flower centers, ladybug nose and her spots. Then I used a black glaze pen on her eyes to help them shine and pop. Last, I pulled out the Dragonfly Dreams enamel dots and added a scattering of them across the design.

This card just screams spring to me and I’m over the moon with how it turned out. I love these soft colors and the ladybug image is just the sweetest! I hope you enjoyed it too.

Jane’s Doodles – Cheers

Hello again! I’m over on the Jane’s Doodles blog today with a card featuring the Cheers digital stamp. It’s simple but I love the masculine color palette and how the whole thing came together.

I printed my image and colored it with my copic markers before using the scan-n-cut to cut it out. Instead of using one of the digital sentiments in the set, I just pulled out my Pink & Main alphabet dies and cut the word “cheers” from white cardstock three times and black once. I used liquid glue to adhere them together and set an acrylic block on top while I worked on my background layers.

First, I took a black scrap of cardstock and used the Pink & Main Sun Ray embossing folder on it. I splattered it with gold watercolor and set it aside to dry. Then I cut an A2 size piece of dark teal cardstock and cut a zig zag circle out of the top-center big enough to frame up my beer mugs. Next, I pulled out the Newton’s Nook Bubbly stencil and inked it up with a dark teal ink for a tone-on-tone texture.

I popped the teal panel up on the black panel with foam tape and adhered that to a white card base with liquid glue. Then I popped the image up in the middle of the window with foam squares. I added the “cheers” letters with liquid glue and tied some twine around the top for a little interest and balance.

For finishing touches I added glossy accents to the glass portion of the beer mugs and that’s all. I intended this to be a masculine card so I didn’t want to add too much sparkle but I like the shine of the glossy accents and watercolor in the light.

Pink & Main – Love You More Sneak Peek

Hello everyone! I’m over on the Pink & Main blog today with a sneak peek of the upcoming stamp set called Love You More PLUS a whole new product that Pink & Main is going to carry…embossing powder and ink!!! It’s so much fun!

For today’s card, I chose an image from Love You More and stamped it on an oval cut from white cardstock. I used my copic markers to color it and matted it on the next size up oval cut from teal cardstock.

Next I took a piece of bright green cardstock and stamped the same images repeatedly all over it in the new embossing ink, then I sprinkled Sour Apple embossing powder on the panel and heat set it. Isn’t this color fantastic!!! I absolutely love it!

Next, I cut the embossed panel with the next-to-largest stackable rectangle and added foam tape to the back before adhering it to a white card base. Then I popped the ovals up with foam tape as well.

Finally, I chose a sentiment to heat emboss using the new white embossing powder and die cut it with a large sentiment banner die before popping it up as well. For finishing touches I added a scattering of new Cool Jellies embellishments. These colors are beautiful!

I hope you’re enjoying sneak peeks of the release! We can’t wait for you to see it all.

Pink & Main – Best of Luck

Welcome friends! Today I’m over on the Pink & Main blog with a new, fun card featuring the May Stamp and Die of the Month – Lady Luck! It is super cute and has some great sentiments in it too!

To create my card, I stamped images from Lady Luck and colored them with my copic markers. Next, I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and arranged them to see how big of a panel I needed to create my little scene. I decided 3×4 inches worked really well so I cut a piece of white cardstock and blended a little ground and sky with my blending brushes.

I added my images and sentiment with foam squares and set the panel aside. Next, I cut an A2 panel from kraft cardstock. Then I chose a fun plaid paper from the new Year Round Plaids paper pack and cut three strips measuring 1.25×5.25 inches each. I added those to the kraft panel with foam tape and then added my scene panel with foam tape as well.

Finally, I added the whole thing to a white card base with EZ Squeeze liquid glue and switched gears to finishing touches. For that I kept it simple with glossy accents on the ladybug spots, flower centers and sunshine in the sky.

I am so happy with how this card came together and just love the strips of plaid instead of a solid panel in the background. Isn’t that cool?!?

Jane’s Doodles – Home Card | Ukraine Fundraiser

Hello everyone. Today I’m over on the Jane’s Doodles blog with a card featuring a new digital stamp called Home. This stamp is a fundraiser for relief efforts in Ukraine. This is one of two sets you can purchase from Jane’s Doodles to contribute. I purchased both sets and will be coloring images from the other one very soon.

I printed the image on white cardstock and colored it with my copic markers. Then I used a Pink & Main Zig Zag Circle die to cut it out. I used the next size up to cut a karft circle for a border. Next, I cut a white panel and embossed it with the Pink & Main Sunray embossing folder for some texture. I trimmed it down to 4×5.25 inches before splattering it and the kraft circle with gold watercolor.

Once the watercolor was dry, I adhere the white panel to a white card base with foam tape. Then I added the image circle to the kraft circle with foam tape as well. The kraft circle is adhered to the card front with liquid glue and I placed acrylic blocks on top to help it adhere to the texture while it dried.

I just love this image and had fun coloring it up. A fun aspect to digital stamps that I often forget is that you have control over the size of your images. I intentionally printed this one smaller to fit portrait on an A2 size card but I think it would be fun to make it larger to create a landscape scene with it.
