Rainbow Candle Birthday Card | MFT Stamps

Hello crafty friends! Hope that you are having a great start to the week! If not, it’s the weekend in two days! I’m on the ScrapbookPal blog today to share a fun rainbow card with you! Sometimes I love making layered and detailed cards, but sometimes you just have 10 mins to craft, so here’s some inspiration for such a situation! 

To create this card :

I started my ink blending a rainbow on an A2 sheet of bristol smooth card stock. I used Distress Oxide Inks in Worn Lipstick, Wild Honey, Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers, and Wilted Violet.

Next I die cut the candles from the My Favorite Things Celebrate with Cake multiple times from the rainbow inked cardstock.

I die cut the flames from some scrap cardstock backed with low tack tape so it stays in place so that I could color it using copic markers in Y13 and Y38.

I embossed a sentiment from the My Favorite Things Celebrate Everything stamp set using VersaFine Onyx Black and clear embossing powder.

Using the negative as a guide, I adhered the candle die cuts to the card front with the embossed sentiment. 

Lastly, I added the candle flames and covered them with glossy accents to add a little dimension.

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

Till the next time, take care!


Lawn Fawnatics

Fishes and Wishes | Lawn Fawnatics #119

Happy Thursday! I don’t know about you, but I am 100% ready for the weekend! Finally past all the things and going to host an adult only dinner and game night! It’s been so long since we’ve hung out with adult friends only, so can’t wait to get planning and shopping! Enough chitchat, let’s get to the card I’m here to share! I started making this card to create for the Lawn Fawnatics challenge “Clean and Simple” but I didn’t finish it on time, so I changed it up a bit and used the same images I had colored already!

So now sharing it for the Lawn Fawnatics challenge “Card Sketch“!

Here’s the card I came up with!

To create this card, I started by stamping all the fish images from the Finstatic Friends stamp set along with multiples of the seaweed and rocks. I colored them using copic markers and die cut them using the coordinating dies.

Next I inked up an A2 piece of white card stock to create a blue ombre and splattered it with water and black paint. I also inked up from dessert storm Neenah card stock with brown ink and added black and white paint splatters to make the “sand”, I die cut it with a hill die (you can also just use a pair of scissors!)

For the front of the card I used a small circle die to create windows, after inking up part of the panel with a bokeh stencil.

I finished off the card by layering the “sand” behind the circle opening, and adhering the fish and seaweed die cuts to create the scene. Lastly I embossed a sentiment from the same stamp set and fussy cut it before adding it to the front of my card.

Thanks for stopping by today, hope y’all have a great weekend! 

Happy Crafting!

Your Plane Awesome | Avery Elle

Happy Hump Day! Today is one of those days I actually my life together LOL. It’s only 2PM and my done list is way done then my to-do list! So that’s means extra time before nap time ends! I made this card a while back to match the party favors and cake at a little friend’s birthday party. Perks of being the baker, you know the theme of the party!

To create this card I started by stamping the plane from Avery Elle’s Peak-a-Boo Flight Stamp Set, coloring it using copic markers and then die cut it out with the coordinating die.

Next, I stamped the owl and it’s wings from the Peek-A-Boo Coaster Stamp Set, colored it with copic markers and die cut it with the coordinating dies.

I finished of the card by creating a background using the Pretty Pink Posh Layered Clouds Stencil set. I inked up on layer with a light blue ink and dry embossed the second layer. Lastly I stamped a pair of sentiments from the Peak-a-Boo Flight Stamp Set.

Thanks for stopping by today! If you are inspired by what I create, tag me (@everydayengineered) on Instagram! I would love to see your creations!

Happy crafting!

Monster Birthday! | Pretty Pink Posh

Happy end of Stamptember! It’s a big month for stamping and I was so excited to be able to join in for the first time! Incase you missed the posts, you can check them out here and here. After I bought literally everything this month, I have put myself on spending freeze, indefinitely! I know that I am going to end up breaking it for the Pretty Pink Posh winter release, so here I am trying to justify my most recent purchases from them! I used the Monster Hugs stamp set earlier in the month here and y’all loved it so much that I decided to put it out again for a cute-not-spooky birthday-not-halloween card! I am tempted to attempt an Halloween card, so maybe I’ll add that to my “to create” list!

To create this card, I started by stamping all the monsters from the Monster Hugs stamp set along with all the “accessories” from the Birthday Friends stamp set. I colored them using copic markers. You can see how I colored them here. And then die cut them using the coordinating dies, Monster Hugs and Birthday Friends.

Copic Combo : BG 10, 11, 13, 15; RV 21, 23, 25; V 01, 04, 05, 06, Y13, 15; YG 21, 23, 25; YR 01, 02, 04, 07

Next I die cut a stitched square using the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Squares from white card stock, and dry embossed it using the Birthday Background Stencil. I die cut all three of the frames from the Stitched Photo Frames die set.

With a little masking, I stamped the sentiment from the Cupcake Critters stamp set on to the two larger frames. I adhered the frames and colored die cuts using a mix of foam tape and liquid adhesive to be able to layer the images and add some dimension. As usual I finished of the card with lots of jewels.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope that you were inspired to create something! Make sure to tag me @everydayengineered and @prettypinkposh on Instagram and join the Facebook group so that we can see what you have created!

Newton’s Nook Designs 8 Year Celebration + New Cupcake Themed Products and Sale!

Today I am excited to be part of  the 8 year anniversary celebration with Newton’s Nook Designs! To celebrate this awesome milestone, Newton’s Nook Designs has released adorable new cupcake themed products, which I will be sharing on my projects today. There are prizes too! Read all the way to the end of this post to find out how you can win!

I’m always a sucker for a birthday themed release, so of course I was super excited about these cupcake theme products, released to celebrate Newton’s Nooks Designs 8th birthday!

For my first card, I inked up an A2 piece of card stock using the new, Cupcake Stencil Set. I used brown ink for the first layer, rainbow colors for the second and red and white pigment ink for the third. I loved the look so much I didn’t want to take too much away from it, so I die cut two balloons, one from pattern paper and a second from vellum using the Balloon Shaker Die Set. I heat embossed a sentiment in white from the Uplifting Wishes stamp set. I layered the balloons that that sentiment is more visible and attached it to the card, and drew in the string using a black marker and added a few jewels to finish off the card.

For the second card, I decided to try dry embossing with a layered stencil and it worked (I only did the first two layers)! So that’s the based of this card. Next I inked up the same two layers of the Cupcake Stencil with orange and pink ink and cut it to create a panel to add on the card base. Then I colored the image from Newton’s Cupcake stamp set and colored Newton and the cake-frosting with copic markers, and die cut it using the coordinating dies. I paper pieced. The cupcake liner with some pattern paper and added the sentiment on it. I offset it on the card base with foam tape and added clay confetti onto the frosting, cause you can’t celebrate without sprinkles!

For my last card, I started by stamping, coloring and die cutting the image from Newton’s Cupcake stamp set using copic markers and the coordinating dies. Similar to the previous card, I paper pieced the cupcake liner and this time heat embossed the sentiment onto it using white embossing powder and added clay confetti to the frosting. I finished off the card with some pattern paper as the base, and the Birthday Roundabout stamp embossed in white on some blue card stock, die cut with the largest scalloped circle from the Circle Frames Die Set, layered on it before adding the colored image with some foam tape!

Rainbow Balloons | Honey Bee Stamps

What type of card do you make the most? For me it was thank you cards, now it’s birthday cards (I still have to work on the sending part!). And when a brand has a birthday themed release, you know that I’m all for it! Thanks to Honey Bee Stamps I finally have a balloon stencil!

Stencils and ink blending are one of the easiest ways to create a quick but fancy looking card! To create this card, I started with an A2 piece of Bristol Smooth Cardstock and adhered the large balloon stencil. I inked it up in rainbow order using distress oxides in Picked Raspberry, Festive Berries, Ripe Persimmon, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Salty Ocean, and Wilted Violet. The I used the second layer of smaller balloons with white pigment ink to create a shadow look.

I finished off the card with a stacked ‘happy birthday’ die cuts from Bitty Buzzwords die set.

This card is part of the Honey Bee Stamps Instagram hop. So head over to my Instagram to start hopping and be inspired!

Thanks for stopping by! Till the next time stay safe!
