Sandy Scene | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy Tuesday y’all! This card is 100% inspired by my sandy vacations plans! It’s been a while since we’ve been to the beach and seeing as summer decided to ditch us here in the PNW, we are 100% ready for some, well A LOT of sun and sand! Maybe a reading a few books too!

To create this card, I started by stamping and coloring the little kitten in the sand castle from the Kitten Beach stamp set with copic markers (sand castle : E42, E43; Kitten : C7, 5, 3; E00, 000; shell : E11, 13) and die cut it using the coordinating Kitten Beach Die Set.

Next I created the background, starting with the “sky” by inking up a piece of A2 card stock using distress oxide ink in salvage patina and tumbled glass. Next I inked up the (new) Palm Tree Stencil about an inch from the bottom using more distress oxide inks (mowed lawn, frayed burlap, and walnut stain).

Last part of the background was to add the Petite Clouds Stencil using some white texture paste. While that dried, I inked up a piece of scrap paper with frayed burlap and walnut stain distress oxide and splatted it with some ground espresso. Once it dried I die cut it with a die similar to the Sea Borders Die Set, making sure it was a bit over 1 inch in width so that it would match up with my palm trees.

Lastly to finish off the card, I stamped and embossed a sentiment in white on to a banner die cut from the Frames & Flags Die Set using black card stock.

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!

Welcome back for last day of April reveal week over at Newton’s Nook Designs, we have been sharing a ton of fun inspiration using the new release that goes live tonight! Today we are showcasing the Newton Loves Tacos stamp set along with the Coordinating Dies. Florals are always my favorite, but this stamp set is hilarious and I cannot wait to use it again!

To create this card, I started by stamping one of the images from the Newton Loves Tacos stamp set, coloring it with copic markers, and cutting it out with the coordinating die. Next I created the background for the card using the Birthday Roundabout stamp set embossed in white and ink blended over with rainbow colors. I buffed it to let the white pop through and die cut it with one of the scallop frames from the Circle Frames Die Set.

I wanted to add a little interest to the card front, so I embossed it with the Bokeh Stencil Set, and finished off with a sentiment stamped on a banner die cut from the Banner Trio Die Set.

Rainbow Florals | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy Monday crafty friends! I hope that y’all had an amazing weekend! I got the morning off parenting on Sunday, and used the time to decorate a cake and celebrate a friends birthday with it! It was just the reset I needed for this busy week!

Today I am sharing a card over on the Newton’s Nook Design Blog sharing a glittery rainbow card using one die and one stamp! Yup, that’s it!

To create this card I started by inking up an A2 sheet of card stock using distress oxide inks to create a rainbow, then I covered it with Nuvo glitter drops, but I used it like a gel/mousse and spread it all over the inked background.

While the background dried, I used the flower die cut from the Slimline Frames & Portholes Die Set to create a pattern by die cutting multiple times, I also saved the full flower die cuts. Next I stamp and heat embossed a sentiment from the Heartfelt Blooms Stamp Set.

I added the die cut panel to the rainbow background, and added the whole flower die cuts after curling the petals to add some dimension and added rhinestones in the middle to finish off.

Floral Bouquet Card | Honey Bee Stamps

Happy Monday crafty friends! I hope that you are having a great start to the week! If not, make sure to sneak in some crafty time! Popping in today to share a quick-ish card cause sometimes you just don’t have the time or energy for detailed coloring! That’s when the newest coordinating ink blending stencils come in handy! I avoided them for a while, now I am hooked!

To create this card I started by stamping all three of the images from Honey Bee StampsFloral Vase stamp set with VersaMark watermark ink and Lawn Fawn gold embossing powder to emboss.

Next I inked up the “vase” using Tumbled Glass distress oxide ink.

The I ink blended the leaves using Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn distress oxide inks.

Next up where the flowers using distress oxide ink in Shaded Lilac and Wilted Violet.

The last layer of ink blending was the center of the flowers that I added using  Scattered Straw distress oxide ink.

Next I die cut out the inked images along with the card and pick for the sentiment using the coordinating dies. I embossed a sentiment on to the card.

To finish off the card I added a little texture to the card front using dry embossing and the Crystal Kaleidoscope Background stencil and assembled the images 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!

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!

Baby Card | Pretty Pink Posh

Happy Wednesday y’all! The sun came out, so I went out, and thus this post is being typed (and hopefully posted) in a small window of time before it’s dinner time!

Sharing a rainbow-ish baby card today that won’t take you days to create!

To create this card, I started by inking up one layer of the Layered Hearts Stencils with pink pink and the second layer with light blue ink.

Next I embossed the “BABY” stamp from the Baby Stamp Set on to white card stock with white embossing powder. I ink blended it in a green to yellow ombre, and buffed it to make the white pop through again. I die cut the letters using the coordinating dies and added them to the inked card front using foam tape.

I finished off the card by embossing “congratulations” from the Simple Sentiments Stamp Set using gold embossing powder on to a black strip die cut using the Simple Strips Dies. And as always I added some jewels.

Citrus Blooms | Pink Fresh Studios

Happy Saturday Crafty Friends! I hope that your weekend is relaxing and filled with a ton of crafty time! I finally stepped out of my comfort zone and try out the latest trend of layered stencils for coloring floral stamps! Today I am using the Citrus Bloom stamp from Pink Fresh Studios with the coordinating Citrus Bloom Layering Stencils.

To create this card I started with an A2 piece of white card stock to match the guidelines and I found it easier to ink first, then add the stamped image.

I started with inking up the flowers on the image using distress oxide ink in Milled Lavender, Shaded Lilac, and Wilted Violet.

Next I ink blended the leaves using Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn.

The last layer of ink blending was the fruits. I used Dried Marigold and Spiced Marmalade for the oranges and Squeezed Lemon and Scattered Straw for the lemons. 

Once I was done inking I used VersaMark watermark ink and Lawn Fawn gold embossing powder to emboss the Citrus Bloom stamp onto the inked panel.

Lastly I die cut the images using the coordinating dies, and also diecut the Simply Diamonds cover die from green card stock, the sentiment “hello” from the Darling Dahlias die cuts to assemble the card.

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

Coffee and Copics | Reverse Confetti

Hello, Hello! I managed to finish my 4th card for the Caffeinated Christmas Card ChallengeSnowflakes that ends in a few hours and wanted to quickly pop in to share it!

To create today’s card I used a stamp set from Reverse Confetti, the sponsor of this challenge!

To create this card I started by stamping on of the mug images from the Brew It stamp set in a teal color and die cut using the coordinating die. I also stamped the copics from Honey Bee StampsLet’s Get Crafty and colored them with copics (B02, 05, 12 and C00, 1, 3), before die cutting them using the coordinating dies.

To create the background I used distress oxide inks (in tumbled glass, broken china and mermaid lagoon) along with the Falling Snow Background stamp embossed in white on to some Bristol Smooth card stock. After adding the color I die cut it using the Circle of Waves die cut. I layered all the elements on to an A2 card base and finished off with a few sequins.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope that this card inspires you to create something and you get some crafty time this weekend!

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.
