Hello everyone! I’m over on the Pink & Main blog today sharing a sweet little snow globe shaker card featuring some of my favorite Christmas mice from last year’s holiday release. I simply couldn’t go without inking them up again.
To create my card, I started with the snow globe elements. I stamped the Empty Snow Globe image and one of the Christmouse images and colored them with my copic markers. Then I curved a sentiment from Christmouse onto the base of the snow globe. I used the coordinating dies to cut everything out, making sure to cut 2 extra snow globe frames and a solid white cardstock snow glob plus an acetate one as well.
I used EZ squeeze liquid glue to adhere all the layers together and filled my shaker with a little sparkling in the clouds flock with glitter and a sprinkle of ice rink glitter too. I added foam tape to the back of the snow globe and set it aside for later.
I flipped through the paper pad included in the Homespun Christmas card kit and found 2 sheets that I liked together. I cut them both with an layered rectangle A2 die. I trimmed them down to 2 inches and 3.5 inches and adhered them to a white card base. Next, I cut a strip of white glitter cardstock .25 inches wide and adhered it with a strip of EZ tear tape.
I removed the release paper on my snow globe and popped it up in the center of the card and finished things off with a small scattering of red pearls from the rainbow pearls pack.
Hey friends! I hope your holiday weekend was wonderful and you’re off to a great start this week! I’m popping in to share that I’m on the Thermoweb blog today. I have a set of 4 cards featuring deco foil flock and glitz glitter gel.
I have 2 ways to use the flock transfer sheets on the blog post today – transfer gel and a laminator or straight die cutting. It’s one of my favorite things about the flock transfer sheets.
For these fun Newton’s Nook cards, I used transfer gel and my laminator for the first one and used the negative sheet with some glitz gel for the second. No waste and two super fun cards! Stamps dies and stencils from this are all Newton’s Nook.
Then for this style, one layer on each card is just die cut flock transfer sheet. Sometimes we don’t have time to be messy and wait for the transfer gel to dry. This is a super fun alternative. The dies for these cards are all Pink & Main.
If you’d like the supply list, full details and photo tutorial please head over to the Thermoweb blog and check it all out.
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
Happy Sunday friends! Thanks for stopping by today. I’m over on the Pink & Main blog sharing a super sweet Christmas card featuring some adorable polar bears and lots of fun techniques.
To start my card, I stamped the fun stocking image from The Best Gift stamp set and colored it with my copics. I used the coordinating die to cut the image out and set it aside. Next, I took a white A2 size panel and inked up the Blizzard stencil with blue dye ink and my ergonomic blending brush. I used EZ squeeze liquid glue to adhere it to a white card base.
Next, I cut a piece of brown woodgrain paper from the Pumpkin Season paper pad to 4.25×3.5 inches. I adhered a strip of 1/4 inche EZ tear tape to the top edge, removed the release paper and rubbed Sparkling Teddy Bear flock with glitter on it. I added foam tape to the back and adhered it to the bottom of my card front.
Next, I added foam squares to the bears and popped them up in the top center of the woodgrain panel. I knew I wanted to use the “Santa Claws” sentiment in the set so I stamped it and die cut it with the smallest Notched Corner die. I adhered it directly to the woodgrain paper below the bears.
For a little extra something to break up how plain the top of my card felt, I die cut Merry Christmas from the Christmas Greetings die set from white cardstock 4 times and red once. I used EZ squeeze liquid glue to adhere the layers together and to my card front.
Now for finishing touches I pulled out my favorite glossy accents and added it to the bear’s noses, cheeks and toe beans. Then I also added it to the patches on the stockings.
Isn’t this just the cutest!?! I am super happy with how this turned out and can’t wait to play with more images in this adorable stamp set!
Hey friends! Jane’s Doodles released a SUPER CUTE digital stamp yesterday – Merry Mice – and I absolutely could not wait to color these sweet images! I seem to be in a kick of making all things Christmas tags so these cuties just flowed together on their own practically.
After printing the stamps, I colored them with my copic markers and used the scan-n-cut to cut them out. Then I used a circle die from Newton’s Nook to cut one sentiment and a Pink & Main large sentiment strip die to cut another. For the third sentiment I actually pulled out Driving Home for Chrimstas, stamped one from it and used a Newton’s Nook banner die to cut it out.
The tags are all cut from the Newton’s Nook Fancy Tag die set. I cut one from kraft and one from white, then I cut toppers for each tag from white cardstock too. I matched some smaller images from other sets to stamp in the background. These snowflakes are also from Driving Home for Christmas.
I popped the images and sentiments up on foam squares. Then I added brown ribbon and red twine to attach the two tags together for each set. I like being able to write on the white one instead of flipping the main tag over. The candy canes for this tag are from Warm and Cozy.
The background images on this tag are from St. Nick. Once everything was adhered, I came back in with glossy accents on all the mouse noses and things like bows, berries and ornaments.
I already have another set of these fabulous images printed and ready for coloring. I’m hoping to get them colored over the holiday weekend.
I recently received my very first order from Unity Stamp Co and am so excited about all the fun goodies I got! First off, I had to use this super adorable bunch of bananas because my daughter has a thing for food with faces and this is just too perfect! She has her last dance competition of the fall/winter season before championships today so I’m attaching it to some goodies for her.
I mean seriously…how could this not make you smile?!?
To create this tag, I stamped and colored the bananas with copic markers and then fussy cut the image out. I die cut the elements of the Pink & Main fancy tag from kraft, white and teal cardstock. I stamped the sentiment on the kraft layer and adhered everything with tape runner. Then I added the bananas with foam squares.
Next, I threaded some gingham ribbon through the hole and tied it with teal twine matching the cardstock. I finished things off with some simple black glaze pen on the eyes to help them shine.
And the back of the tag is bright white and ready for a special message to encourage her before performing! How fun is that!?! I love it!
Happy Friday everyone! Today I’m over on the Pink & Main blog with a super fun Christmas shaker card! It’s adorable and fits in with the final day of the Fall | Winter Coffee Lovers Hop too! Pink & Main is a super sponsor, did I mention that?!? Even better!
I started my card by stamping some images from Mugs and Kisses and colored them with my copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and then glued everything together with my EZ Squeeze liquid adhesive. I chose a sentiment from the set, stamped it on white cardstock and cut it out with a large sentiment strip die.
Then I created my shaker mechanism. For that I cut the peppermint swirl die from red cardstock. I found the corresponding size circle in the layered circle dies and cut it from acetate. I used liquid glue to adhere these together and carefully lined the back with thin foam strips. I sprinkled in some sparkling cotton tail flock and ice rink super fine glitter and sealed it up with a white circle. This one was cut from the circle one larger than the acetate.
For my background, I chose a fun light blue patterned paper in the Best Friends paper pad and cut it out with the largest rectangle stack A2 dies and adhered it to a white card base. Next, I added the peppermint shaker and finally added the sentiment strip and reindeer mug with foam squares.
For finishing touches, I added glossy accents to the sprinkles, peppermint stick and rudolph’s nose. Then I came in with unicorn Stickles for his cheeks and finished everything off with a few glitter enamel dots from the Thankful pack.
The mugs in this stamp set are just too cute for words! It was really hard to choose just one so I’m going to have to make more of these just to color the rest of those cuties!
Hi again! I’m over on the Pink & Main blog today, celebrating the start of the Coffee Loving Cardmakers hop, which they are also a sponsor of! I created a fun Christmas card and wanted to share it with you here too!
I started by stamping the image from Holiday Mugs and colored it with my copic markers. Then I used the coordinating die to cut it out. This set also has a die for the sentiment so I stamped and cut it out too. Then I cut 3 wreaths using the Wreath Base die set – 2 from green cardstock and one from vellum.
For my background, I sifted through my amazing stash of Pink & Main patterned paper and landed on this cocoa colored dotted paper from the Pumpkin Season stack. I cut it out with the largest layered rectangle die and adhered it to a white card base with my EZ Squeeze liquid glue. Then I used the same glue to adhere the wreath layers together and down to the card base. For a little extra texture I flicked black acrylic paint across the design before popping the image and sentiment up with foam squares.
For finishing touches, I added glossy accents to the center of the poinsettia and some of the foliage. Then I stuck down a scattering of the red dots from the Rainbow Glitter enamel dots pack.
Are you playing along with the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Fall | Winter Hop? I hope so! It’s so much fun and there are lots of prizes to win!
Happy Sunday everyone! Today I’m part of a super fun Pink & Main hop over on Instagram featuring the design team and special guests! So much inspiration to be had! We wanted to kick start the holiday crafting season and share some fun ideas.
I’ve got an adorable slimline card featuring the Stamp of the Month – Snow Sweet! I started by stamping all the images in the set and colored them with my copic markers. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. Next, I die cut the Season’s Greetings sentiment dies from white cardstock 3 times and the shadow from vellum. Then I used my EZ Squeeze liquid glue to adhered the layers together.
Next, I blended distress oxide inks on speckled egg, peacock feathers and chipped sapphire at an angle down a slimline panel. I spritzed it with water and flicked pearl watercolor all over it. While it was drying I die cut the slimline plaid die from white cardstock and created a card base. Then I glued all the layers together.
I popped the snowmen up with foam squares and adhered my sentiment with liquid glue. I didn’t like how stark the white was so I cut the words from dark blue cardstock and adhered them to the top. I like this much better!
Finally, I came in for some finishing touches of glossy accents and unicorn Stickles on various parts of each snowman. They are just too cute and I love how sweet this card turned out!
Don’t forget to head to Instagram and hop along, commenting the whole way. There are 4 $25 gift certificates to the Pink & Main store up for grabs!
Hey friends! I’m over on the Pink & Main blog today with a fun Thanksgiving card to share with you featuring the October stamp of the month. Don’t worry, if you haven’t signed up yet, you can still purchase the stamps and die set in the shop!
I started my card today by stamping and coloring images from Turkey Time. Then I cut them out with the coordinating dies. For the background, I cut a piece of kraft cardstock to A2 size and ran it through my die cutter with the woodgrain embossing folder. Then I used an ergonomic blending brush and brown ink to enhance the grain texture.
I adhered it to a white card base and cut a piece of black cardstock with a stitched arch die. I taped the arch to the sunshine layers stencil and inked it up with some white pigment ink. I went over the rest of the panel with the ink left on my brush to soften the lines. I stamped and heat embossed two sentiments from the set at the top of the arch and popped it on the card front with foam tape.
Next, I adhered two of the turkeys with EZ Squeeze liquid adhesive and popped the last one up, plus the pumpkins, with foam squares. I finished things off with some glossy accents on parts like turkey beaks, pumpkin stems and the buckle on the hat.
Now that Halloween is over, I always get another burst of energy for fall crafting and this card was just the start of it! Wouldn’t these cuties be fabulous on place cards for all of your Thanksgiving guests?!? I have an idea up my sleeve!
Happy Friday everyone! I’m over on the Pink & Main blog today sharing a card using the Homespun Christmas Card Kit that’s available! This kit is packed full of amazing products that are super fun to create with! I’ll be sure to link it below but let’s take a look at the card I created first!
I was really in love with the idea of this jar full of poinsettias being my focal point. It’s such a pretty image and I have always had a thing for Mason jars for some weird reason. Anyway, I stamped and colored the image with my copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut it out and then pulled the paper pad out of the kit to choose my backgrounds. I cut the pink paper to A2 size and adhered it to a card base included in the kit. Then I die cut the green panel with a zig zag circle and popped it up with foam tape. I also popped the jar up for extra dimension.
I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment on black cardstock and found that the second to smallest die in the slimline layers was perfect so I cut it out with that. Then I took a piece of the new adhesive sheets and adhered it to a white cardstock scrap. I die cut the scrap with the next largest slimline layer, removed the release paper and smothered it with sparkling fuzzy monster flock! This stuff is SO FUN!!! I used foam squares to pop the layers up and placed it on the card below the circle.
Because I love texture and dimension I also came in with glossy accents for the flower centers and berries on my image. Then for a little extra extra, I added some of the glitter enamel dots from the kit across the design too!
I am loving these non-traditional, bright colors for a Christmas card! They are happy and vibrant and sure to make the recipient smile!
