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.

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!

Newton’s Nook Designs Birthday Release – Day 4 – Birthday Release Recap | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy birthday to Newton’s Nook DesignsI hope you’ve enjoyed all the birthday themed inspiration I shared this week! Everything will be available for purchase tomorrow, July 15 and there will be having a Birthday Sale! While you wait for the release to go live, I thought that I would share a few more cards to inspire y’all!

I used some of my favorite products from the release to create a few more CAS-ish cards as I just couldn’t stop creating with all the cuteness in the release!

For my first card, I used an image from the Birthday Mice stamp set, I colored it using alcohol markers, and die cut it using the coordinating die.

To finish off the card, I added a strip of pattern paper from the Birthday Party Paper Pad, stamped a sentiment and added a few sequins.

For my second card, I created an inked background using the Bokeh Balloon Stencil. To create the background, I inked up an A2 card panel, I added the first layer of the stencil set, and inked it up with the same colors for a tone on tone look, and using the second stencil with white pigment ink. I finished off and splattered it with white water color paint.

While the inked panel dried, I colored an image from the Birthday Mice stamp set, along with two party hats. I die cut them using the coordinating dies. I also die cut a banner from the Frames & Flags Die Set, onto which I stamped and embossed the sentiments.

I trimmed down the inked panel, and added the colored images and sentiments on top of it! I finished off by adding the party hats to the mice along with some matching sequins.

Thanks for following along all week and the lovely comments! 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!

Divided Shaker Card (plus a bonus card!) | Honey Bee Stamps

Hello crafty friends! I hope that you are having a great start to the week! If not, make sure to sneak in some crafty time! Today I’m up on the ScrapbookPal Blog sharing a fun pair of rainbow card, cause when in doubt, rainbow it! I love 2 for 1 cards as extras are always fun!

To create this card :

I started by inking up the first layer (small balloons) of the Layering Balloons Stencil from Honey Bee Stamps using distress oxides ink in Ripe Persimmon, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Salty Ocean and Wilted Violet

Next used the second layer (large balloons) the Layering Balloons Stencil and inked it up with the brushes I used for the first layer without actually inking up the blending brushes for a lighter shade of the same color. 

Remove the stencil to reveal the pattern! 

Next I die cut the inked background using the Happy Happy Happy cover plate. Make sure to save the die cut letters for a second card.

Next I added acetate to the back of the card front die cut, and glued in the centers of the “P” and “A”.

I added foam tape around the back of the card front, and also between the letters to create “pockets” for the different color sequins!

Next I lined up the die cut letters back into the cover die so that it would be easier to add them to a card front. I added iquid adhesive to the back and adhered them to the card front.

Next I used the Happy Happy Happy stamp set and coordinating die set to create a few sentiments to the card fronts, adding them using foam tape.

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

Strawberry Inspired Birthday Shaker Card | Ellen Hutson

Hi crafty friends! Hope that y’all had a great long weekend! Life has been very real these past few weeks, so unfortunately blogging took a back seat. As I get used to my new schedule I have high hopes being more regular here! I was on the Ellen Hutson Blog last week and it was so exciting to be on there as I have been a fan of Ellen Hutson for years! Did you know that May is National Strawberry month? I didn’t, until Carly reached out to me about guest designing! I’m was over the moon, who wouldn’t be as Ellen Hutson is my favorite one stop shop for all things crafty, especially as they are just a drive away!

Let’s get to the card I’m shared on the Ellen Hutson Blog! I love shaker cards, they aren’t as complicated as they look, especially when you use a frame die cut! I used the colors of a strawberry as my starting point for this card. I choose the following distress oxide inks for my blend.

I used Abandoned Coral, Candied Apple, Twisted Citron, and Mowed Lawn, along with Black Soot and Gansai Tambi White paint for the splatters.

Ink splatters are a great way to hide imperfections in the ink blending, and they worked well with my strawberry theme. If using multiple colors of splatters, let each one dry before adding the next layer to avoid muddy colors.

Once my ink splatters dried, I die cut the ink blended sheet using the Pretty Pink Posh Birthday Frame Die. I wanted to add something to the back of the shaker, and the cake from the Essentials By Ellen’s Cake by Julie Ebersole fit in the frame perfectly with space for a sentiment.

I stamped the outline of the image using Versafine Ink (in Onyx Black) along with the sentiment. I recommend using a stamp positioner for this step as it makes lining up the solid stamp easier. For the solid images of the stamp, I used the same distress oxide inks as my ink blend, Abandoned Coral, Candied Apple, and Twisted Citron.

I finished off the card by creating a shaker using some liquid glue to adhere the die cut frame to the acetate, then added a thin pieces of foam tape to add dimension for the shaker. I created the shaker mix using matching colors from my sequin stash. I filled my shaker window, added the backing with the stamped image and sentiment and added it to a card front.

Thank you all for following along, I hope that you are inspired to create something, with strawberries, or not! If you do get crafty, please tag me @everydayengineered on Instagram, along with @ellenhutsonllc so that we can see what you have made!

And lastly, thank you to the Ellen Hutson team for this lovely opportunity!

Take care,
Farhana

CAS Birthday Card | Pretty Pink Posh

Happy Hump Day y’all! It’s been a day, thankfully productive. But as always the to do list didn’t seem to get any shorter, taking a mini break before starting dinner to share a CAS – just stamp card with y’all!

To create this card, I started by stamping the strip of candles Birthday Borders stamp set from Pretty Pink Posh on to an A2 piece of white cardstock and colored it using copic markers. Once I was done coloring I used a grey copic to add a shadow under the candles.

To finish off the card, I added some glossy accents to the flames and stamped the sentiment “so many candles“, possibly my last woodblock stamp that my son found and is now obsessed with!

Rainbow Birthday Wishes | Honey Bee Stamps

Hello Crafty Friends! Hope that y’all are having a fun and productive start to the week! I’m still working on that routine, especially motivated by the fact that the faster I get work and chores done, the more time I have to craft!

On to the card, today I’m sharing another card inspired by Carly T‘s rainbow shaker card, you can see the first card I made here.

To create this card, I started by inking up an A2 sheet of Bristol Smooth Cardstock using  distress oxide inks (in Shaded LilacSalvage PatinaTwisted CitronSpiced MarmaladeAbandoned CoralKitsch Flamingo). Then I splattered it with water, once that dried I added black and gold paint splatters.

I covered the inked panel using the (new) Mod A2 Cover Plate die cut from white card stock. I built the sentiment using the Birthday die cut, along with the Birthday stamp set. And as always I finished off my card using some rhinestones.

I hope that this inspires you to create something crafty at the end of your day! If you do, and share on Instagram, be sure to tag me (@everydayengineered) and Honey Bee Stamps (@honeybeestamps)! We love to see what you create!

Fall Birthday Card | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy Thursday y’all! Almost done with the week and time for some crafting over the weekend! I don’t know about you, but fall going into winter is probably my favorite season to craft! Especially since it’s perfect time to use all those sunflower (and poinsettia) stamps! I love making season birthday and thank you cards, it helps make the post of your stamps too!

For today’s card, I designed it around the Falling Leaves Stencil, I ordered it a while back, but it fell to the bottom of the pile and I just never used it!

To create the card, I started by stamping and coloring (with copic markers) the sunflower image from the Sunflower Days Stamp Set and fussy cutting the image (you can also use the coordinating die).

Copic Combo : Y15, 17, 38; YG 06, 23, 25; E 13, 15, 37

Next I created the background using distress oxide inks (in wilted violet, spun sugar, scattered straw) and white texture paste. I started by inking up an A2 sheet of Bristol Smooth card with the distress oxide inks, and splattered the sheet with water and white paint. Once it dried I layered the Falling Leaves Stencil, and added the texture paste. I let it dry a few hours before adding the colored images using foam tape, and a sentiment from the Birthday Roundabout Stamp Set stamped on a banner from the Banner Trio Die Set. And as always I finished off the card with some jewels.

I hope this card inspires you to create something for fall! 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!

Happy crafting!

Lawn Fawnatics

make the sentiment the star | LAWN FAWNATICS CHALLENGE #112

Happy Wednesday y’all! I don’t think I have shared this before, but Lawn Fawn stamps were some of my first “real stamps” in my collection! This is waayyy before I started shopping for stamps online and stumbled upon them at my local craft store! And in all honestly I haven’t use them as much, mostly cause I wasn’t the best at coloring! But now that I am super confident with my copic marker coloring skills, bring on all the stamps! I’ve also been slowly adding coordinating dies as I didn’t have those cause I didn’t even have a die cutting machine back then!

Enough chit chat! Let’s get to today’s card! It was inspired by a party goodie bag my daughter got and I matched the current challenge over at Lawn Fawn, so of course I had to finally finish making it and share!

It’s been a while since I’ve made a card in one seating and woah … the copics that I used on this! Any guesses? Scroll down to count them as I have them listed!

Like all my card, I started by creating this card by stamping all the images from the Out of This World stamp set. I colored them with copics, trying to be as realistic as possible! Then I die cut them using the coordinating dies.

Next I created a galaxy background on black card stock using Wilted Violet, Chipped Sapphire, Cracked Pistachio, Scattered Straw, and Black Soot. I splattered it with water and silver paint and let it dry. Once dry, I die cut it using the Twinkle Slimline Die. I backed it with some grey cardstock.

For the sentiment I die cut the Giant Happy Birthday from silver and grey cardstock. I layered them a little off set to create a shadow. I adhered it to the middle of the card front and added the colored images to create the universe! I covered the I with the spaceship image.

Copic Combos : B00, 02, 05, BG10, 34, C00, 1, 3, 5, 7; E 13, 15, 31, 33, 37, 42, 43, 55; R08, 14, 27, 29; Y 11, 13, 15, 17, 35; YG 01, 03, 06; YR 07, 16

Thanks for stopping by today, hope y’all have a great rest of the week! 

Happy Crafting!
