Butterfly Birthday Wishes | Pretty Pink Posh

Happy Tuesday! Yesterday was such a productive day thanks to the little one being back in daycare! I was so excited to be able to get things done with a million snack and potty breaks! Here’s to hoping that today is just as if not more productive! Popping in bright and early today to share a very quick card that’s simple to make but looks so fancy!

To create this card I started with the Layered Butterfly Stencil from Pretty Pink Posh, inking up the first layer using distress oxide inks in kitsch flamingodried marigoldscattered strawtwisted citrontumbled glass and shaded lilac. I inked up the second layer with the same distress oxide inks, going heavy handed this time. Instead of a top to bottom rainbow, this time I went around the card front instead. I finished of the stenciled image using black soot for the last layer.

I finished off the card by adding a word die cut using the Happy Birthday Script Dies and some sequins.

Coloring for a Cause | Ellen Hutson

This past weekend, I was able to join Ellen Huston for a coloring for a cause Instagram Blog Hop. I thought that I would pop in here today to share the card I created, as the digital coloring book is still available at Ellen Huston.

I used the image of the bouquet of sunflowers from the coloring book, resizing it a little before printing. I colored it using a combination of sketchmarkers and copic markers.

Once I was done coloring I cut out the image using a stitched rectangle die. I created the background for the card using strip dies and blue and yellow card stock.

I finished off the card using a sentiment from the Courage Stamp Set, embossed in white on to black cardstock.

The hop is over, but the war is still going on, and the beautiful art from Ukrainian artist are still on Instagram so head over and share some love on their feed!

Happy Crafting!

Baby Laundry Card | Honey Bee Stamps

Happy Wednesday! I hope that your week has started off well! I am still playing catch up from July, and I can’t believe that it’s August! But I am excited about ALL the fall crafting!! Farhana from Everyday Engineered and popping in today with a fun baby card! I combined a few products from Honey Bee Stamps to make this CAS-ish card!

To create this card, I started by heat embossing the Spring Blooms Background stamp with watermark ink and white embossing powder.

Next I inked blended over it using distress oxide inks in Worn Lipstick, Wilted Violet, and Peacock Feathers.

Using the Simply Hexagons die from Pink Fresh Studios, I die cut the inked background to create a partial background for the card front. I also die cut a ruffle onesies from some pattern paper using one of the dies from the Bundle Of Joy die set.

Next I played around with some sentiments for the front and inside of the card, from the Inside: Welcome Baby Sentiments stamp set. I just a few strips of pattern paper to match the front of the card and pull it all together.

I finished off the card by stamping/embossing the sentiments, and gluing everything together using a combination of foam tape and liquid adhesive.

Thanks for following along today! I hope that this card inspires you to create something! 

Till the next time, take care!

Rainbow Cupcakes, (Glossy) Accents and All! | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy Friday! I hope that y’all had the exact weekend that you need, productive, relaxing, or crafty! I didn’t get much crafty time but I got to kinda sleep in, as I didn’t get to sleep pretty much ALL week! If y’all are like me and didn’t get to craft over the weekend, I wanted to pop in quickly to share a quick card idea that comes together in about 10ish minutes, so you can create this before bedtime!

To create this card I started by ink blending the first layer of the Cupcake Stencil Set from Newton’s Nook Designs on to an A2 piece of Bristol smooth cardstock. I used a lighter set of distress oxide inks in kitsch flamingo, dried marigold, scattered straw, twisted citron, tumbled glass and shaded lilac.

For the second layer I used a dark “rainbow” of distress oxide inks, in picked raspberry, spiced marmalade, mustard seed, mowed lawn, mermaid lagoon and wilted violet.

For the third layer, I used glossy accents. Make sure to clean your stencil immediately after using it, along with letting the accents dry for a couple of hours!

As I didn’t want to take too much away from the stenciled background, I finished off the card with a die cut sentiment from Pretty Pink Posh, Happy Birthday, cut from black card stock.

Thanks for following along today! I hope that this card inspires you to create something! 

Till the next time, take care!

BBQ Birthday Card | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy Tuesday y’all! It’s super hot in the Seattle area, thankfully we have AC and I can hide out in my craftroom, well not really as I have a huge baking project this week, so even more grateful for the AC! Anyhoo… this card is inspired by the BBQ we hosted when it wasn’t a million degrees, and hopefully it cools down again soon, so that we can use the deck again!

Masculine cards are the hardest card for this floral loving crafter to make, so when these fun BBQ themed sets came my way from Newton’s Nook Design I was finally inspired to step out of my comfort zone!

To create this fun shaker card, I started by stamping and coloring all the images (minus the apron!) from the Dad’s BBQ. Once colored I die cut them using the coordinating dies. Next I built the sentiment from the same stamp set by embossing them in white on to banners die cut from black card stock using the Banner Trio Die Set.

Next I created the back of shaker by stamping and embossing the BBQ Roundabout stamp in white. I inked blended over it with blue and green ink, and buffed it after to make sure the white pops! For the front of the card, I die cut a circle using the Circle Frames Die Set for a sheet of pattern paper from the Summertime Paper Pad trimmed down to an A2 card front size. I filled the shaker with white sequins and the little colored die cuts.

I finished off the card by adding the sentiment strips along with the bbq grill image and the flames on top of the shaker window.

Please make sure to stop by the Newton’s Nook Designs Blog for more inspiration and don’t forget to tag #NewtonsNook or #NewtonsNookDesign on Instagram to share what you created!

CAS Ice Cream Birthday | Ellen Hutson x Mama Elephant

Happy Monday! I’m still procrastinating on my mile long to do list, I did knock off a few things, so maybe I’ll call creating this card a break? The new Ice Cream Stand stamp set from Ellen Hutson and Mama Elephant is such a cute set, I just can’t get enough of it!It’s part of their summer of stamping celebration, and there’s a lot more fun coming (make sure to check out the latest release here)!

As I was short on time, I used a graphic from Mama Elephant as my inspiration for coloring! After stamping the images from the Ice Cream Stand stamp set, and coloring the images using copic markers, and die cut them using the coordinating dies.

To ground the images on the card, I used a circle die to create a mask and inked it up using some Salvage Patina Distress Oxide ink.

I added the die cut images to the card and stamped the sentiment from the same Ice Cream Stand stamp set to finish off the card!

Thanks for stopping by the blog, make sure to stop by Ellen Hutson tomorrow as they have a new release coming! 

Happy Crafting!

Ice Cream Birthday | Ellen Hutson x Mama Elephant

Happy “Friday eve”! I’m 100% procrastinating on my mile long to do list, but the new Ice Cream Stand stamp set from Ellen Hutson and Mama Elephant was too cute not to get ink ASAP! It’s part of their summer of stamping celebration, and there’s a lot more fun coming!

Given I didn’t have too much time on hand, and I messed up my first colored image, I went for a CAS card, I have some fun ideas brewing in my head, so let’s see if they get on to paper!

To create this card, I started by stamping the ice cream stand and the little hamster (?) from the Ice Cream Stand stamp set and colored them using copic markers and die cut using the coordinating dies (I picked up the combo!)

I masked off the bottom third of the card front and ink blended the middle third of it with Squeezed Lemonade distress oxide ink. I added the colored images, and stamped a sentiment in the white space.

Thanks for stopping by the blog, make sure to stop by Ellen Hutson tomorrow as they have a new release coming!

Beach Birthday Card | Avery Elle

Hello crafty friends! I hope that you are having a great start to the week! I was on the ScrapbookPal blog yesterday with this card that was 100% inspired by my recent vacation in Hawaii! I spent most of it on the beach reading a book with the loveliest drinks in hand! Okay, enough reminiscing, lets get to the card!

To create this card, I started by stamping and coloring a set of images from the Avery Elle Beachy stamp set with copic markers. I cut them out using the coordinating dies.

 Next I used distress oxide inks (in Brushed Corduroy, Salvaged Patina, Mermaid Lagoon, Spiced Marmalade, Squeezed Lemonade) to create a sand-sea-sky background. I splattered it with a bit of white and black paint to add some dimension.

Using a basic circle die and wave edge die, I die cut the inked background to create focal point for the card. I played around with the images to see how do create the scene.

I die cut a card front using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Ripple Backdrop and embossed the sentiment using white embossing powder onto black card stock strips.

I finished off the card by layering all the pieces, and added the sentiment strips along with some sequins.

I hope this inspires you to dig out some critter stamps and create a scene card!

Thanks for following along today! I hope that this card inspires you to create something! 

Till the next time, take care!

Get Well Soon | Pretty Pink Posh

Happy Monday! I hope that y’all had a great weekend and are ready for the week! I have a pretty busy week coming up and here’s to hoping that I can keep the productivity from last week going! Popping in today to share a card for a cause, Shery Russ, owner of STAMPlorations. I was lucky enough to guest design for her a while back and she’s not only creative, but a great person! Unfortunately she is suffering from cancer now and needs all the support and help that she can get! We hope they hop can get the word out!

I have this “Get well soon” die from Pretty Pink Posh and I’m grateful I don’t have to use it often, but it seemed like a fitting card for this hop. I started by die cutting the Get well soon die from purple glitter card stock, and a second time using black card stock to create a shadow. Using a glue pen I layered the die cuts off set, and placed it under a heavy book to set.

Next I used the Floral Background stencil along with Distress Oxides in Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade, and Picked Raspberry to create an inked background.

Lastly, I stamped the wreath from the Spring Wreath Stamp Set with Memento Rich Cocoa and colored it using copic markers. Once I was done coloring I stamped the image again, this time using Versamark Ink and embossed it using Gold Embossing Powder. I die cut it using the coordinating die and added it to my inked background. And finished off by layering the sentiment on the wreath.
