Hello Copic Coloring featuring Mama Elephant

Hi crafty friends!
I have a quick card to share with you today but I very much ended up loving the bold look of it.
My best friend got married this summer so I was doing a lot of crafting for her and not much for me so once it was all over I kind of lost my card making mojo so I just stamped a bunch of stamped and colored! And I'd figure out how to put them onto a card after wards. This beautiful Botanical Hello stamp set from Mama Elephant being one of them. I colored in with Copics and fussy cut out.
I then adhered it onto Fog cardstock and matted that onto black card stock and cut down so it was just a this piece showing to bring the black out from the Hello letter and finally adhered onto a white card base.
I stamped the sentence onto a strip of white card stock and cut into a banner piece to put on the bottom of my image.


That sums up my card for today!
Minus the coloring of course it was quick and easy and I loved the way the colors turned out.
Thank you so much for coming by today!

Stamptember collaboration with Pretty Pink Posh

Hello!
Happy Stamptember!
I am so happy to be joining you for Stamptember today with the collaboration with Pretty Pink Posh!




How gorgeous is this stamp set! I must admit I was a tad intimidated by this set at first as I'm use to cute little critters and such but I started stamping and am in LOVE with the elegance to this set! I can't wait to use it for a wedding card! Okay on to my creation!


I started with a Smoke piece of card stock that I cut just slightly smaller than an A2 sized card base and stamped 4 of the smaller damask images on it with Smoke ink for a tone on tone look. I then cut a piece of water color card stock using the Stitched Notes die, keeping the inside piece.
I stamped the larger damask image with Zig real brush markers. I brushed the markers directly on the stamp and spritzed lightly with water. I love the watercolor look this gives! I did this multiple times using a dark purple, light purple and light blue, I adhered this onto my grey panel.
I stamped and white heat embossed my sentiment onto a small strip of the Smoke card stock and adhered onto my card.
I finished off by adding a bow I die cut from silver glitter paper with the Twine and Bow die, added a small clear droplet and scattered some Sparkling Clear sequins onto my card.




 My next creation is super clean and simple! I simply stamp the images with Distress ink in a straight line, stamped my sentiment and added some gold sequins!

Pretty Pink Posh September Release Blog Hop


Hello!

I'm so happy to be part of the Pretty Pink Posh September release blog hop!
Aren't all the products the sweetest!?
I think the reindeer's may be my favorite!
You should have arrived from Sharon Harnist blog but if you happen to be starting here I'll have a complete list of the hop at the bottom.


Speaking of the reindeer, my first project is featuring the very adorable Reindeer Friends stamp set, the coordinating dies and the Tic-Tac-Toe die.
I started with a Sea Glass card base. I cut my tic-tac-toe die out of white cardstock and adhered onto my card base. I also cut the Stitched Notes frame with silver glittery card stock and adhered onto my card.
For my reindeer, I stamped them on white card stock, colored using Copic markers and cut using the coordinating dies and adhered in my tic-tac-toe board.
The words on the stamp are stacked on top of each other but that would not fit on the bottom of my card so I put the words side by side by stamping the words one at a time by masking off each word with tape.
To finish off my card I scattered some silver stars!





My second project features the new Happy Turkey stamp set!
How cute is that guy?!
I started off with an A2 sized kraft card base and stamped the leaves in the stamp set in the background with Frayed Burlap Distress ink. I cut white card stock with the Storybook 1 die and adhered onto my card. I stamped my sentiment into the bottom area. I stamped my images on white card stock and colored using Copic markers and cut out using the coordinating dies, I adhered into my frame and to finish off I added some Sparkling Clear sequins.


I hoped you enjoyed my projects! Thank you so much for joining me!
Next on your stop is Yoonsun Hur.

Happy Halloween masking card featuring Pretty Pink Posh

Hi crafty friends!
Hope you all had a lovely weekend!
Pretty Pink Posh just released some amazing new products and I wanted to stop in today to share a card with you I created featuring one of them.
I used the new Trick or Treat Friends stamp set to create a one layered longer card.

Being a one layered card there's not a whole lot of supplies needed but there was a lot of masking!
When masking just remember to stamp the image you want in front first and go from there. So I started withe the vampire ears for my girly with pig tails, masked that and then stamped her, masked her off and then stamped Frankenstein, etc. I hope that makes sense!
You can purchase masking paper to do this, I simply stamp my images on printer paper, cut them out out and use temporary adhesive.


Once all my images were stamped out, I masked them all off to ink blend my background, I also put a piece of masking tape onto the bottom to mask the bottom part of as well. To create my background I blended Dusty Concord, Broken China and Mermaid Lagoon Distress inks and spritzed a little bit of water for the dot looking effect. Once my background was finished I removed all my masks and colored my images with Copic markers.
To stamp my sentiment, because the words are on top of each other and I wanted my sentiment going across, I simply just covered one word at a time with tape while stamping the other.
And that finishes my card today!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Sea Friends Shaker Card featuring Pretty Pink Posh

Hello!
Hope your having a lovely week so far!
I can't believe summer is almost over!
Thought I'd share another summery card before it ends!
I created a shaker card with the very cute Sea Friends stamp set by Pretty Pink Posh along with coordinating dies.
I used the frame from the Stitched Notes die to create my shaker from and filled it with Mermaid sequins. I did some ink smooshing with Distress inks onto watercolor paper for background.
At the bottom of my shaker I cut some 'waves' out of vellum using the Scallop Border dies.
For my cute sea characters I stamped them on watercolor cardstock, colored in with Zig real brush markers and cut out using the coordinating dies and adhered onto my card.



For my sentiment I used a shape also from the Stitched Notes dies, stamped my sentiment and adhered on!
That finishes my shaker card today!
Thank you ever so much for stopping in!
