Happy Birthday Sunflower - Distress Oxides

Happy Birthday Sunflower


I got the new set of Distress Oxides 
so I figured I would try out a cool background that I saw.


I pulled out some colors that I wanted to use. I used an overhead transparency sheet to do my ink smooshing. . . Which I am not very good at but will continue to work on! 
I didn't use a lot of the Frayed Burlap, it has some blue in it and that popped out right away on my first layer. I wiped that color up right away.


So the back ground was a stripped distressed resist technique. I don't have a striped stamp so I used the Lawn Fawn  Stripey Backdrop die and created a stencil. I dabbed my Versamark pad right onto my background in progress through the stencil and then used clear embossing powder.


The next colors I added to the background were the greens. . . Because of the  clear embossing these stripes kept the yellow color. It wasn't exactly as I had pictured it but I think it turned out great. I knew that I wanted this card to have a black edge so after my panel dried I die cut it to be one size smaller and cut my black base panel.


My mothers birthday is tomorrow and thought this card would be perfect for her!
I used the sentiment from Strawberry Jude Stamps Rainbows and Roses. I white heat embossed it and used a die to cut it in to a banner.

I stamped the sunflower from Strawberry Jude Stamps Hello Sunflower on some vanilla malt card stock and used the Brother Scan N cut to cut it out. I did not color it in, it is a great stamp on it its own and I like how it stands out against the Distress background.

You are Magical - Doodles Paper Playground Sparkle Blends

You are Magical - Doodles Paper Playground Sparkle Blends


Hello! 

Today I am showing you how I made this shaker card using a mix from Doodles Paper Playgrounds February release, Spring Fling


I started by stamping my image using copic friendly ink. 
This unicorn is from Strawberry Jude Stamps - Unicorn and Sparkles. I used a neutral grey to highlight the unicorn and covered the body in Wink of Stella and used a glaze pen on the hooves. 


Next I die cut all my needed panels. 
I do not have any frame dies so I used two nesting dies together. 
I was able to make the frame a little thicker by skipping one of the nesting dies dies.
This is nice so that I do not have to worry about my foam tape showing.


I used scor tape to attach my acetate sheet to the frame and added a double layer of foam tape. 
I rubbed my no static tool along the inside so that my sequins will not stick to the foam tape.


I attached my two bottom layers together and attached them to the card base and placed my sequins on top, ready to be covered. I love this blend, the colors in it definitely say spring and it works great with this whimsical creature!


I added my shaker frame and pressed down well so that I know it adhered well to the base then I added the unicorn to the corner.


I used a scrap from the background for the sentiment which I die cut to get the end to have the banner cut and I added a few sequins to the front of the card.

Birthday Wishes - Doodles Paper Playground Sparkle Blends

Birthday Wishes



I had these pop ups from Queen & CO. so I decided I would finally use them! The shaker element made this card super quick and easy!


I love stars and this star paper goes so well with the Crown Jewels Sparkle Blends. One of the stars was the perfect size to cover a star on the paper.



I placed the shaker element on my base panel and filled it the Crown Jewel Sparkle Blends. Putting the clear cover on this was a bit tricky but after it was placed a did a little trimming and its perfect!



For some reason I did the shaker portion first, I was excited! I decided that I wanted to white heat emboss this Birthday Wishes sentiment from Simon Says Stamp. After that was done I adhered the panel to my card base.

I then picked out sequins for the front of my card, one of each color from the Crown Jewel blend. I love that there is a rainbow of colors in this blend but they still go so well together! I placed them on my card front using glue dots.

Sending You Love

Sending You Love


I used the Squirrel Mail stamp set from Strawberry Jude Stamps, 
It was perfect for this challenge!




I stamped my image and sentiment onto watercolor paper and I used Distress Inks to watercolor my image.

I added a few floating hearts.



I decided that I actually wanted a red background so I trimmed down my watercolor panel and die cut a red base panel. 

I added a few red and pink sequins to fill in the corner. . . It was looking kinda bare!

You're Fintastic!

You're Fintastic!


This card was actually pretty easy to put together and turned out great!

I started this card by die cutting all my needed panels and pieces. I used black for my base panel, and a vanilla malt for my top panel. I choose a blue paper for my shaker window back ground since I want it to be water-esque!

I stamped my images and colored them with copic markers and stamped my sentiment on my top panel.


Then I put together my card. I added my little fish to my shaker background so they give a little more dimension to the shaker. For my shaker bits I used Ocean View, one of the new mixes from Doodles Paper Playground - Sparkle Blends February release. I love how this mix has a great variety of blue shades, worked great for my water!

I put the dolphin on the front of the card and added a few more sequins!

Stop Dragon Your Feet. . . .

Stop Dragon Your Feet. . . 


Valentines Day is just around the corner so I decided to make this cute dragon valentine!


I stamped my dragon and jewels in copic friendly ink. I like to use my Misti so I can stamp it multiple times to get a nice dark image.


I colored my images in shades of pink and red since this is going to be a valentines card. I used a Scan-n-Cut to cut the images out after coloring them.


For my background panel I used watercolor paper and did a wash of pink and added flecks of pink and red to one side and along the bottom. After I made my base panel I decided that a little black border would look nice so I trimmed down my watercolor panel and created a new black base panel.


My sentiment is cut out from adhesive vinyl. 
I love to do this, you get exactly what you want to say and how you want it to look 
and it is so easy to add to your card.

I layered up my base panels, attached my images and placed my sentiment.



I decided I wanted the jewel that the dragon was holding to be nice and sparkly so I did a layer of red stickles and after that dried I did a layer of glossy accents. . . I think it turned out perfect!
