Whimsy Stamps - a little old a little new

Hi Evreyone,

Today I am sharing with you Freddie from Whimsy Stamps, along with this gorgeous image which was released as a Rubber Stamp and now as a Digital Stamp, I have also pulled out an old Whimsy Stamps die, this is Vines. I used to love this die, and I don't know what you are like but I use something lots then put it away and forget I have it.. this is one of those :-)


I love putting these cards together, it's so much fun. 


I printed Freddie out onto X-Press It Blending Cardstock using my Brother Laser Printer then coloured him up using Copic Markers.


    

I cut the image down using my Cutterpillar Pro and added some enamel dots using Tonic Studios Nuvo Crystal Drops in Violet Galaxy.


I ran the Vines die through my Sizzix Big Shot just using some leftover green cardstock.

  

The sentiment I had already stamped out from another project so I'm not sure where it came from, I bannered the sentiment using my EK Success Cutterbee Scissors.

  

For the patterned papers I used Doodlebug Sugar Shoppe 6x6 Paper Pad, I matted the patterned papers using some purple American Crafts Cardstock.


I used the same patterned papers to decorate the inside of the card.


I hope you have enjoyed my post today, if you have any questions feel free to send me a message or contact me via facebook (all links can be found below).

Ashton Turns 16- Paper Shelter Goalkeeper

Hope everyone is having a lovely afternoon, recently a friend asked me to make a card for her son's Birthday, he was turning 16 and plays soccer, when I came across this image I knew it was perfect for him as he is a Goal Keeper.

This is The Goal Keeper from The Paper Shelter, a super cute image that I had not used previously.


I printed the image out onto X-Press It Blending Cardstock using X-Press It Blending Cardstock.

When you purchase the image it also comes with a background paper, I also printed this out, but I printed it on my Inkjet Printer so I could get it in colour. I printed it out onto X-Press It Blending Cardstock as it is nice and thick and doesn't bleed the printing.


I coloured the image up using Copic Markers, then ran him through my Sizzix Big Shot using Lawn Fawn Stitched Squares dies.


I used EK Success Star Confetti Punch to cut out some stars from American Crafts Black Cardstock.


I put the name and the sentiment together using the Pages app on my MacBook, I then printed it out onto X-Press It Blending Card so everything was the same white using my laser printer.


I cut some grass using some leftover green card stock from my bucket and MFT Stamps Grassy Fields.


I adhered all the layers together using Helmar Acid Free liquid Adhesive.

Finally I added some Tonic Studios Nuvo Crystal Drops - I chose the Glow In The Dark and used Banana Split, Shocking Pink, Apple Sour.

I used the same papers to decorate the inside of the card.

Club La La Land Crafts - January 2020 Unboxing and Card

Good Morning Everyone,

Today I am sharing with you my unboxing of the January 2020 Club La La Land Crafts, I haven't been doing unboxing videos lately as I have been swamped.. with life really.. and well today is no different.

As I am typing this my hubby is in hospital with Appendicitis so I am running on no sleep, just worry and anxiety. I apologise now if anything I say in my post is a little sketchy, I try to only share a little of my personal life with my peeps but sometimes it's nice to just put it out there in the world how you are feeling.

Here is the card I have made this morning whilst being stressed out of my mind.


I coloured the image up yesterday before all this life stuff happened so this morning is just me bonkers card making lol.

I stamped the image out onto X-Press It Blending Cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black, as originally my plan was to Copic colour her however once I had her stamped out I decided to do something different and use my Zig Markers. X-Press it Blending Card is not made for watercolours.. but it worked, I may have had to work a little harder at it but it turned out pretty well and I am happy.

Here is the image all coloured up.

  

Here is a picture of all the Markers I used, I will have a list of them at the end of the blog post incase you were interested.


It was fun to try out new colour blends as I don't have anything written down on these I normally just wing it..

For the card I used a Pebbles paper pad called Spring Fling, I have had this one for a while so it is no longer available to purchase unfortunately. The sentiment I used on my card is from the same patterned paper pad.


I used my EK Success scissors to trim it down.

I ran some of the papers through my Sizzix Big Shot using Lawn Fawn Stitched Circle dies, I ran them through the centre of the papers so I was still able to use the rest for card guts.

I trimmed some scraps of the same patterned papers down and bannered them up so I could slide them under my image.


I ran the Envelopes Border die through my Big Shot using Kraft Cardstock then trimmed some of them down and then ran the die through it again with some red card so I could have the heart inserts.

  

I used the Hexagon Bunches die from Honey Bee Stamps to cut some of the hexagons out using American Crafts Black Cardstock.


I added a heart to Marci's shirt from the leftover die cut pieces.

At this stage I thought my card was done, however I kept looking at it and wasn't happy. I decided to add the Ink Pen from the stamp club, I ran it through twice so I could once again add the little heart.


I added some Wink Of Stella and that was my card complete.


I hope you have enjoyed my post today, if you have any questions feel free to send me a message or contact me via facebook (all links can be found below).

Paper Nest Dolls - Safari Owen

Hi Everyone :-)

Today is video editing day for me, I'm falling so behind as always, it's so hard to get time to do voice overs at the moment, our house always seems to be full of noise lately :-)


I created this card using a Digital Image from Paper Nest Dolls called Safari Owen, he is currently (at the time of this post and video going live) being offered for free which is awesome.

Why is he for free? He is free to raise awareness for Australia and the horrible weather we have had lately, since November we have had drought, fires, hail and flooding.. the only thing we haven't had where I live is snow.. and we won't as where I am in NSW it doesn't get cold enough for snow. The weather is just miserable and we cannot wait to go back to normality.


I had so much fun colouring this image up and putting the card together, when I first seen the image I envisioned the guys/girls who work at Australia Zoo and how they wear Khaki, so those are the kids of colours I went for when colouring. I also used my Copic Multiliner to write Zoo on his pocket :-)

  

The paper pad I used is from Kaisercraft and is called Australiana, this is one of my all time favourite paper pads at the moment, I love all the patterns in it and all the awesome sentiments.

I used my EK Success Cutterbee Scissors to fussy cut the image out leaving a nice white border around the outside.


I cut down the "I made it to Sydney" logo using my Ek Success Scissors and worked my card around that.


I used American Crafts Cardstock to mat my patterned papers and also added a doily in. You can get away with using a doily on a male card if you use it in the right way, I love the way it worked on my card today.

The leaves are from Kaisercraft's Gum Leaves dies, I ran them through my Big Shot just using some green papers, I then ran them through a second time in a darker green.\

  

I used some of the leftover white blending card from the image in my EK Success Star Confetti Punch, it's a great way to use up leftover papers.


At this stage I hadn't stuck anything down yet, I pulled out my good old Tim Holtz Ranger Mini Distress Inks and grabbed the Vintage Photo, I used a mini ink blending tool to carefully add some ink to the outside of everything except the doily and the image. I love the way it finished everything off.

I adhered everything to a Couture Creations Card Base using Helmar Acid Free Adhesive - this is my go to for Liquid Adhesive.

I used all the same patterned papers etc and decorated the inside of the card to match.


Finally once I had my card complete, I pulled out some of my Tonic Studios Nuvo Crystal Drops in Dirty Bronze and Woodland Green and added a few drops around the card and on the leaves.

  

I hope you have enjoyed my post today, if you have any questions feel free to send me a message or contact me via facebook (all links can be found below).

Whimsy Stamps - PC Grant

Hi Everyone,

Today I am sharing with you one of the new Whimsy Stamps images from the Digital Release, this is Grant from the Pollycraft collection.


I printed the image out onto X-Press It Blending Cardstock using my Brother Laser Printer.

I ran the image through my Sizzix Big Shot using a Lawn Fawn Stitched Circle die, the top of the balloon was going to be cut off so I carefully fussy cut it using my EK Success Cutterbee scissors, when I ran the die through I carefully slipped it underneath so it wouldn't get cut off.


I coloured the image up using Copic Markers, I used my Colorless Blender to add some details to the image.


I pulled out an old Whimsy Stamp set called Party Mini Letter Seals, I stamped out the birthday sentiment onto some scrap X-Press It Blending Card using Memento Tuxedo Black and a Lawn Fawn acrylic block. The sentiment needed to be matted so I ran a Lawn Fawn Circle die with some American Crafts Cardstock matted it and adhered it to the image using American Crafts Foam dots.


The patterned papers are from The Craft Stall Mini Stack, and I matted them using American Crafts Cardstock.


I adhered everything to a Couture Creations card base using Helmar Acid Free liquid Adhesive.


Finally I adhered some leftover stars from EK Success Star Confetti Punch, I used some Wink Of Stella Clear to the balloons and the present to finish them off.
