For my first two cards I used the new Love Stamp Set and die set.

IMG_4691

For my first card I first stamped and white embossed “LOVE” from the Love Stamp Set onto the front of an A2 top-folding white card base. I then ink blended Candied Apple, Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry, and Seedless Preserves Distress Oxides over the card front. Next, I die cut an A2 panel of white cardstock and white craft foam with the Love Coordinating die. I then placed the Love Background stencil on top of the panel and then pressed my Versamark pad all over the panel. I then poured white iridescent embossing powder over the panel and then heat set with my heat tool. After I heat set the panel I then adhered it to the craft foam panel.

IMG_4692

I then stamped and white heat embossed the remainder of my sentiment onto white cardstock. Next, I ink blended Candied Apple and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxides over the sentiment and then trimmed it down to a strip. I then finished the card by adhering the panel onto the card front and then adhering the sentiment strip with foam tape.

For my second card, I first ink blended Candied Apple, Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry, and Seedless Preserves Distress Oxides over the Love Background stencil on to an A2 top-folding card base.

IMG_4694

After I ink blending, I then left the stencil in place and pressed Versamark ink over the card front and then heat embossed with clear iridescent embossing powder.

IMG_4693

I then adhered the left over craft foam and cardstock letters from the first card together. Next, I adhered the letters to my card front. I then stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment on white cardstock. I then ink blended over the cardstock with Candied Apple and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxides. Then I trimmed the sentiment down to a strip and then adhered it to the front of the card with foam tape.

My next card features the Large Floral Heart Stamp Set and coordinating dies.

IMG_4687

First I stamped images from the Large Floral Heart Stamp Set in Antique Linen Distress Ink onto Bristol paper. I then watercolored the images in with my Tombow Dual Brush Pens. Once I finished coloring my images in, I then die cut them out with the matching dies.

IMG_4689

Next, I stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment from the Large Floral Heart Stamp Set onto black cardstock. I then trimmed my sentiment to a strip. Next, I adhered my largest heart onto an A2 top-folding card base. I then adhered the smaller heart with foam tape and then finished by adhering sentiment on top.

My last card features the adorable Party Friends Stamp Set and coordinating dies.

IMG_4688

First, I stamped and copic colored an image from the Party Friends Stamp Set. Once I finished coloring the image I then die cut the image out with the coordinating die. Next, I ink blended an A2 panel of white cardstock with Candied Apple, Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn, Salty Ocean, and Wilted Violet.

IMG_4690

I then created a full panel shaker with a 6.25″ x 7.5″ panel of acetate. I did this by scoring 1″ on all the sides of the acetate. I then placed my ink blended panel into the acetate and then filled with Iridescent Mini Star Confetti. I then adhered the full shaker panel onto an A2 top-folding card base. Next, die cut a sentiment with the Balloon Shaker Die. Once I die cut the balloon, I then trimmed the sentiment away from the balloon. I then finished the card by adhering the sentiment and image to the card front.

And that’s it! I hope you enjoyed my cards! Please be sure to check out the rest of the hop and leave those comments along the way for your chance to win one of three $50 gift certificates!!

To create this card, I first stamped the Bird with Bouquet stamp in Hero Arts Intens-ified Black Ink and then copic colored the image. Once I had finished coloring the image I then fussy cut it out.

Next, I created the background by arranging several of the small floral stamps from the Flower Bouquet Pieces Stamp Set in my MISTI in the lower right quarter section of an A2 panel of Cherry cardstock. I then inked the stamps up with Hero Arts Crimson ink and stamped. I then rotated the panel 180 degrees and then stamped again. Next, I arranged the stamps again this time in the lower left corner of the panel then stamped and then rotated and stamped again to complete the panel.

Lastly, I finished this card by stamping and white embossing a sentiment from the Flower Bouquet Pieces Stamp Set and adhering the focal image with foam tape.

(Video) Technique: Combining Background Dies and Stencils

(Video) Technique: Combining Background Dies and Stencils

Hello crafty friends! Today I’m over at Heffy Doodle with a new video demonstrate a fun and easy technique!

In today’s video I share a fun idea for stretching your stencils and background dies by combining them together to create fresh new backgrounds!

Technique: Combining Stencils and Background Dies

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.

First, I die cut A2 panels of white and pink cardstock with the Quilted Heart Background Die. Next I ink blended over the panels using the Steady Heart Stencil. 

HD202001-CombingBackgroundDiesWithStencils1

I simply blended Candied Apple Distress Oxide on the pink panel but to create the rainbow of hearts on the white panel, I used painters tape to mask off diagonal sections on the stencil and then blended with a nine Distress Oxides, one for each section. 

HD202001-CombingBackgroundDiesWithStencils3

After I ink blended the panels I then die cut a window in the center of each panel using a die from the Fancy Nancy Frames Dies. I saved the pink center but discarded the center for the white panel. 

Next, I stamped several images from the Quill You Be Mine Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black and Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. I then copic colored all the images and then die cut them out with the matching dies. 

Next, I stamped a sentiment from the Quill You Be Mine Stamp Set onto the pink panel with Walnut Stain Distress Oxide. I also white heat embossed a second sentiment onto black cardstock for the second card. 

HD202001-CombingBackgroundDiesWithStencils2

Next, I assembled the pink card by first adhering a white A2 panel onto an A2 top-folding red card base. I then adhered the pink panel onto top. Next, I adhered a circle of craft foam to the backside of the center circle and then adhered both on to the card. I then added my images with foam squares. 

HD202001-CombingBackgroundDiesWithStencils4

I then assembled the rainbow card by first adhering a panel of light blue cardstock onto an A2 top-folding white cardbase. I then adhered the rainbow panel and sentiment with tiny foam squares. I then finished the card by adhering my image to a craft foam layer die cut with the matching die and then adhering the two inside the window on the card front. 

I hope you enjoyed!! Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!

Waffle Flower Crafts January Release

Waffle Flower Crafts January Release

Hello crafty friends!! It’s time for another fabulous Waffle Flower Crafts release!! And to celebrate Waffle Flower is sponsoring a fun blog hop and giveaway!!

2001-Release-Blog-Hog-Badge

This month’s release is so sweet and once again I have several cards and even a VIDEO to share so lets dive right on in shall we! 😉

First up is a shaker card that I created with the gorgeous Fresh Rainbow Sentiments Combo designed by the brilliant JJ Bolton!!

IMG_4609

I love everything that JJ designs and this new combo is no exception!! The moment I got my hands on this set I knew I had to create a shaker card!!

Fresh Rainbow Shaker

Watch below or on my YouTube channel.

I created two versions of this card. The two cards are basically the same except for the sentiment and the shaker contents.

First I die cut 3 A2 panels of white cardstock and a panel of white craft foam with the Fresh Rainbow Panel Die. I then altered craft foam panel and one of the cardstock panels to remove the center sentiment rectangle to allow the shaker contents to flow from one side of the rainbow to the other.

WFC202001-FreshRainbowCombo-Channin 1

Next, I ink blended the upper right and lower left negatives from one of the diecut panels with Tumbled Glass distress ink and a mask I created with the Scenery Die to create a cloudy sky. Next, I ink blended all the negatives for the rainbow with several distress inks and oxides. Once all the negatives were ink blended I then adhered one of the unaltered panels onto an A2 top-folding card base. I then inlaid the diecuts.

IMG_4611 copy

Next, I created the shaker wells by first adhering the craft foam panel and then adding the altered cardstock panel onto.

WFC202001-FreshRainbowCombo-Channin 2

Next I stamped my sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black Ink and then clear heat embossed onto the last Fresh Rainbow Panel. I then adhered the panel onto a panel of acetate.

IMG_4612

Next, I applied antistatic powder over my shaker wells to remove any excess adhesive and then filled my wells with either seed beads or sprinkles. After I filled the wells I then adhered the top panel over to sealed the whole thing shut.

Next up is a card I created with the beautiful Blossoms Combo Set illustrated by Karla Jodoin.

WFC202001-BlossomsCombo-Channin 1

Whenever I get my hands on a beautifully intricate floral stamp set I find it difficult to do anything other than no-line watercoloring and once again that is exactly I did here! 😉

First, I stamped the bouquet in Antique Linen distress ink onto Bristol paper. I then colored the flowers in with my Tombow Dual Brush Pens. Once I finished watercoloring the flowers in I then diecut them out with the matching die.

WFC202001-BlossomsCombo-Channin 2

I then ink blended with Seedless Preserves and Aged Mahogany distress ink over an A2 panel of purple cardstock to create a gradation. I then splattered some watered-down Wilted Violet distress oxide and some Gansai Tambi gold paint over the panel. Once the panel had completely dried I stamped and gold heat embossed a sentiment and then adhered the panel onto an A2 top-folding card base. Next, I adhered the flowers with foam tape and then finished the card with purple sequins.

Next up is another shaker card! However this card features the Sweet Scallops Panel Die also designed by JJ Bolton.

WFC202001-SweetScallopsPanelDie-Channin 1

First, ink blended over an A2 panel of white cardstock with several Pinkfresh Studio inks (Coral Reef, Ballet Slipper, Peach Fuzz, Lemon Whip, Mint, Ocean Breeze, Seaside, and Soft Lilac). I then diecut the panel as well as a panel of craft foam with the Sweet Scallops Panel Die.

WFC202001-SweetScallopsPanelDie-Channin 2

Next, I stamped and white heat-embossed a sentiment from the Fresh Rainbows Sentiments Stamp set onto the panel. I then constructed the shaker card by adhering the craft foam panel onto an A2 top-folding white card base. I then filled the wells with some iridescent glitter. Next, I adhered the blended panel onto a panel of acetate and then adhered the two to the front of the card.

Next is another card I created with the Sweet Scallops Panel Die and Love You Bunnies Combo illustrated by Cassie Loizeaux.

WFC202001-LoveYouBunniesCombo-Channin 1

First, I stamped the bunnies and some accessories from the Love You Bunnies Stamp Set in Vintage Photo distress ink. I then colored them in with copics and diecut them with the matching die. Next, I dry embossed an A2 panel of white cardstock and then stamped a sentiment from the Oversized Love Stamp Set in Antique Linen distress oxide and then heat embossed it with iridescent embossing powder.

WFC202001-LoveYouBunniesCombo-Channin 2

I then die cut a frame and heart out of pink cardstock and a larger heart out of glittery cardstock. I also die cut a frame out of pink craft foam and adhered the two together. I then finished the card by adhering the embossed panel onto an A2 top-folding card base. I then adhered the pink frame, the hearts, and images to the card front.

Next is the Oversized Love Combo also designed by JJ Bolton.

WFC202001-OversizedLoveCombo-Channin 1

I love the oversized series by JJ they make creating a cards so fast and easy.

For this card I first, ink blended an A2 panel with several Pinkfresh Studio Inks (Coral Reef, Ballet Slipper, Peach Fuzz, Lemon Whip, Mint, Ocean Breeze, Seaside, and Soft Lilac). I then die cut the panel with the Hearts Panel Die and carefully saved all the heart negatives. I then adhered the panel onto an A2 top-folding card base and then I inlaid the hearts but in reverse diagonal order. Next, I die cut the Oversized Love Word Die from white and glitter cardstock.

WFC202001-OversizedLoveCombo-Channin 2

I then adhered the two together but slightly off-set. Next, I stamped a sentiment from the Oversized Love Stamp Set in Antique Linen distress oxide and then heat embossed the sentiment with iridescent embossing powder. Next, trimmed the sentiment down to a strip. I then finished by adhering the “love you” and sentiment strip onto the card front with foam tape.

And next up is my last card featuring the sweet Special Delivery Combo illustrated by Cassie Loizeaux.

WFC202001-SpecialDeliveryCombo-Channin 1

First, I created the background by creating a mask out of contact paper using the Hearts Panel Die. I then stuck the contact paper down onto an A2 panel of pink cardstock and then ink blended with Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick distress oxide. I then trimmed the panel down 1/8″ on each side and then adhered the panel onto an A2 top-folding white card base.

WFC202001-SpecialDeliveryCombo-Channin 2

I then created my focal point by first stamping the background in Worn Lipstick distress oxide and Festive Berries distress ink. Next, I stamped the flowers in Mustard Seed distress oxide and Wild Honey distress ink. I then stamped the leaves in Peeled Paint distress oxide and Lucky Clover distress ink. Next, I stamped the bird in Tumbled Glass distress oxide, Broken China and Mermaid Lagoon distress ink. I stamped the details of the bird in Chipped Sapphire distress ink. I then finished the image by stamping the sentiment and letter in Barn Door distress ink. I then die cut the image with the Nesting Postage Die and adhered it to the card front with foam tape.

And that’s it! Phew! I hope you enjoyed! Thank you so much for stopping by!

Reverse Confetti: Anything Goes!

Reverse Confetti: Anything Goes!

Hello friends! Today I share my last project as a guest for Reverse Confetti. I had so much fun designing with their incredible products and I hope guest with them again very soon!! 🙂

IMG_4492

First I watercolored an A2 panel of watercolor paper with some liquid watercolors (Cookie Monster, Jelly Donut, Lollipop). Once I finished watercoloring I then stamped several snowflakes in Versamark ink and then heat embossed with opaque iridescent embossing powder. Next, I then stamped the cute hugging mice in Gina K. ink onto white cardstock. I then colored the images in with prismacolor pencils and then die cut with the matching dies. I then hand cut a snow drift from white cardstock and then stamped a sentiment from the set in Versafine Onyx Black ink using the MISTI to help me curve the stamp.

IMG_4491 copy

Next, I ink blended with Pinkfresh Studio’s Ocean Breeze dye ink along the bottom of the drift and then applied Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops along the top of the snow and added iridescent glitter. I finished the card by adhering the watercolor panel onto an A2 top-folding card base and then adding the snow drift and critters with foam squares.

I hope you enjoyed my card! Thank you so much for stopping by!!

Secret Admirer Card

Secret Admirer Card

Hello friends!! In this video I will create a sweet slimline valentine with the Secret Admirer Combo from Waffle Flower Crafts. See how I add some fun dimension with wired string to create a phone cord and sentiment!

WFC201912-271292 Secret Admirer Stamps-Channin 1

Secret Admirer Card

Watch below or on my YouTube channel.

For this card, I first created the slimline card base (8.5″ x 7″, score at 3.5″) out of red cardstock. I then ink blended on the card front with Barn Door and Fired Brick Distress Ink. Next I splatter some white Gansai Tambi paint towards the center of the card front. I then die cut a heart using the Nesting Heart Dies. I then ink blended over the  heart with Waffle Flower’s Tickled Pink and Color Box’s Rose pigment ink to create a gradation.

WFC201912-271292 Secret Admirer Stamps-Channin 2

I then adhered the heart to the card front. Next, I stamped and copic colored some images from the Secret Admirer Stamp Set. Once, they were colored I then cut them out with the matching dies. I then coiled up some wired silver thread to resemble a telephone cord. In middle of the thread, I stopped coiling and instead bent the thread to form the word “love”. I then added foam tape to the images and then used the images and a few drops of glue to hold the thread in place. Lastly, I finished the card with some heart gems!

I hope you enjoyed today’s card! Thank you so much for stopping by!

Technique: Rainbow Alcohol Ink Love Cards

Technique: Rainbow Alcohol Ink Love Cards

Hello friends!! In today’s video I will create a set of rainbow cards with alcohol ink and a paint brush! I’ll show you how I paint two easy yet beautiful alcohol ink backgrounds and then finish them with a bold sentiment using the Outline Love dies and stamp set from Waffle Flower Crafts.

WFC201912-310362 Outline Love Word Die-Channin 3

Technique: Rainbow Alcohol Ink Love Cards

Watch below or on my YouTube channel.

First, I created the backgrounds with several shades of alcohol inks and a paint brush on Yupo paper. I tried several different directions and even different strokes to get a variety of rainbow backgrounds.

WFC201912-310362 Outline Love Word Die-Channin 1

Once I finished the backgrounds I then die cut the Outline Love Word Die three times out of white cardstock. I then adhered all of the outline love die cuts together.

WFC201912-310362 Outline Love Word Die-Channin 6

For my other version of the “love”, I simply adhered two of the negatives layers together for dimension. I then adhered those letters to the underside of a vellum “love” die cut using the Outline Love Matching Die. I then finished by the last layer of “love” negatives to the top of the vellum.

WFC201912-310362 Outline Love Word Die-Channin 7

I then stamped and white heat embossed my sentiment onto the alcohol ink backgrounds, being careful not to warp the paper. Once I had finished, adhered the background onto an A2 top-folding card base and then finished the card by adhering “love”.

I hope you enjoyed today’s cards and video! Thank you so much for stopping by!
