Hi Everyone! So Jennifer and I are back again to share with you Day 3 of our challenge together this time using the wonderful set from Hero Arts, Cupcakes. I mean who doesn’t love a cupcake??
I wanted to create a card that had punches of colour and a creation that was fun to look at. So I started with pink card stock to form the card and on the front of the card I stamped the Hero Arts, Flourish background stamp that was inked with Hero Arts, Soft Pink, once this was stamped I set aside to dry. I took some white card stock and stamped a cutie of a cupcake twice and coloured it in with my Copics, adding a little white gel pen and also some Glossy Accents, I cut the image out and on the second coloured image I cut the flower out only and adhered it to the flower on the cupcake using foam dimensionals, then reached back for the card, whilst my white gel pen was still out, I added white dots to the front of the card for more added interest. I took more white card stock and cut a strip the length of the card, I also adhered some SEI, Happy Day patterned paper to the white strip and attached to the front of the card. I added a sentiment from the cupcake set and lastly added my cupcake using some foam dimensionals.
Here is another view of the card:
I wanted to create a card that was very simple yet as I said before fun to look at with all the colour.
Here are the products that I used to create this sweetie of a card:
So I am heading over to Jennifer’s blog now to check out her wonderful creation.
Thanks for all of the wonderful comments again and I hope that you will all return tomorrow for Day 4.
Hi Everyone! So if you have visited Jennifer’s blog today you would have seen that today is a very important day and it is the Lawn Fawn Blog Hop for Cards for Kids, so we decided that we would skip a day so that this important event could take place, but stay tuned as we will be back again tomorrow with another creation for you all to feast your eyes on.
So for tonight I wanted to share a card that I created with some more paper piecing. I have had the Hero Arts, Kiss from the Sun stamp set for awhile and have not inked it up yet, until now. I used a Hero Arts, Eggshell note card and stamped the Hero Arts, Graph Background that was inked with Hero Arts, Soft Sand and covered the front of the card. I cut a Spellbinder, Label 8 die and stamped the Hero Arts, Cloud stamp using some Hero Arts, Soft Pool ink over the die cut. Once this dried I took the branch with the birds on it, the branch and the bird house from the Kiss from the Sun stamp set and stamped them onto the die cut and whilst these stamps were out I stamped the bird house and the birds on the branch onto some SEI, Happy Day patterned paper. The birds and the bird house were cut out and set aside. I took my Copic markers an coloured the branches and leaves in on the die cut and then took each patterned paper images that were cut out and adhered them on the ones that were stamped onto the die cut using some foam dimensionals. I added a sentiment from the Hero Arts, Mi Casa stamp set and attached the die cut to the front of the card using more foam dimensionals. Lastly, I added some white string to the base of the card to tie it altogether.
Here are the products used to create this card and don’t forget to keep scrolling down for some other Bits and Pieces.
I am loving the Graph Background stamp at present and I could find myself using it on every card if I allowed myself..LOL.
So I hope you like the card tonight and don’t forget that Jennifer and I will be back again tomorrow to share more with you, but for now I wanted to leave you with some Bits and Pieces also for tonight:
So as you know Lawn Fawn is having a blog hop for Cards for Kids, so pop over there and leave some sweet comments.
Don’t forget also if you are an Aussie resident that you have a few more days left to enter the challenge over at Scrapbook Boutique.
Here are some creations that have caught my eye lately, Vera super sweet, Sarah Gorgeous layout and the last creation from Michelle really loving the idea of a pocket and sweet card inside on the front of the card.
So I hope that you will join both Jennifer and I again tomorrow.
Hi Everyone! So it is day 2 of the challenge between Jennifer and myself and I have to say that this has started out to be a really fun experience, I felt like a kid last night at Christmas time waiting in anticipation for the big reveal of Jennifer’s card and WOW! what a card it was, that girl certainly knows how to create a masterpiece and one that draws you right in with all it’s delicate features, so if you still have not had the chance to check it out you can do so HERE.
I also wanted to take the time to thank everyone for their wonderful comments both on Jennifer’s blog and mine, I am so glad that this is inspiring you all and that you are enjoying what we are bringing to you, I hope that you will enjoy today’s blog post and again I will act like a kid and wait again to see what my wonderful friend has created.
So tonight we bring to you a card created using the Hero Arts, What’s Cooking Stamp set:
When I created my card I decided that it was time to delve in and start using my patterned paper that has been sitting and sitting in my collection and not being used so I took the Apron from this set and stamped it first onto some white card stock that was cut to size and then onto some patterned paper from October Afternoon ( I think that this companies paper truly has to be my favourite right now, just love it) I cut the apron out and adhered it to the apron that had been stamped onto white card stock using some foam dimensionals, I also stamped the pockets another piece of October Afternoon patterned paper and cut them out and adhered them onto the apron also. I took Copic Sketch Pens and coloured the hearts and the ties in on the apron to match. Next, taking the sentiment from the set I stamped it at the bottom of the white card stock and set aside. I took more October Afternoon patterned paper and cut a piece slightly larger then the white card stock and adhered each of these together using more foam dimensionals. To form the card, I cut some Kraft card stock to size, folded in half and using the Hero Arts, Cling Dot background stamp I inked it up with some Colorbox Ink, Frost White and covered the entire front of the card, once this had dried I adhered the other card stock and patterned paper to the front of the card using foam dimensionals.
A great way to use up patterned paper that you have on hand and paper piece images, really fun!
So now I am off to check out Jennifer’s blog and see what wonderful and inspiring creation she has created today, why not follow me :)
I also thought that I would change the way I do blog posting, I have seen a number of blogs that show some if not all of the products that they use to create their project and I felt that this is such a wonderful idea that I thought it would be fun to start this on my blog, so here are some of the products that I used to create this card:
Hero Arts, Cling Dot Background Stamp:
Colorbox Ink, Frost White:
October Afternoon Patterned Paper:
Looking forward to bringing you another fun blog post tomorrow!
Hi Everyone! So I have big, exciting news, this weeks blog posts I will be doing something a little special. I will be sharing the week with Jennifer McGuire, we have decided to show case 6 cards together, using 6 different stamps. I am super, super excited about this event and I could not be more honoured to have this opportunity to do this.
I have been a great admirer of Jennifer, who inspires me every time she creates, she is a truly wonderful, kind hearted and generous person, one in which I am grateful is a part of my life.
I hope that we inspire others out there this week to create and have fun!
The first card I will be sharing with you today shows one of the techniques that Jennifer uses in some of her creations, which is emboss resist.
I took the stamp Flowing Flowers and Leaves from Hero Arts and stamped it onto several pieces of white card stock using Versamark Ink, I then embossed with clear embossing powder. Once this was embossed I took Ranger, Distress Ink, Barn Door, Wild Honey, Tumbled Glass and Shabby Shutters and covered each piece of the white embossed card stock heavily with each of the inks. I took a 1 inch Fiskars circle punch and punched several circles out of each colour. Next, taking more white card stock, I cut it to size, folded in half to form a card and using the Score Pal I scored 3 lines down one side of the card. I adhered each of the punched out circles down the other side of the card using some foam dimensionals and with some left over white card stock I cut a tag and stamped a sentiment from the Hero Arts, Leaf Prints stamp set and adhered this to the card using more foam dimensionals. Lastly, I added some rhinestones either side of the sentiment to finish the card.
A card that is quite simple to make and even though a lot of white, the punch of colour makes the card quite eye catching, so don’t be afraid to use white, there is so much that you can do with it.
Okay, so make sure that you all go on over to Jennifer’s Blog and check out what she has created with this wonderful stamp.
I look forward to the week ahead with Jennifer and with you my fellow bloggers and stampers.
Hugs to you all!
Hi Everyone! So today’s card seems to be appropriate as it has been raining here all day. I created a card using another digital image, this one was also from The Greeting Farm called Rain Rain.
So I downloaded the image and resized it to the size that I was after, I printed it out onto some white card stock and coloured the image in using my Copics, once the image was coloured I cut her out and set her aside. I took more white card stock and ran it through my Cuttlebug, cutting a circle using the Spellbinders, Circles die. I then inked up the Hero Arts, Graph Background stamp with Hero Arts, Soft Pool ink and stamped over the top of the circle. Taking the coloured image I adhered her to the circle using some foam dimensionals. Next, taking some American Crafts patterned paper (which has been in my collection for I don’t know how long..LOL) I cut it to size and sewed around the edges, I also took some Ranger, Distress Ink, Tumbled Glass and distressed the edges, I also decided to add some distress ink to the outer edges of the circle as well, I then added a sentiment at the bottom of the patterned paper using the Hero Arts, Sweet Wonderful You stamp set. I then took more white card stock and cut it to size and folded in half to form the card, lastly, I adhered the round circle with the image on it to the patterned paper using more foam dimensionals and then adhered the patterned paper to the front of the card.
Here is another view of the card:
I really enjoyed making this card tonight and I hope it inspires you out there to have a go at using some digital stamps.
So that is about all for tonight, but before I go I wanted to let you know to pop back here tomorrow and check out the big event that will be starting tomorrow, looking forward to bringing you a surprise :)
Have a great night!
Hi Everyone! So how is your weekend going? I have had a good day, caught up on a few things and spent some time in the craft room, as any crafter would do, LOL!
So I have another Pure Innocence image to share with you tonight, this little girl with bird I downloaded from the wonderful illustrator, Heather Ellis’s web site, she is currently having a sale on her digital images, so I quickly jumped at the chance to grab these sweet designs as they are being discontinued. I may even go back to get more yet…hee,he.
So I downloaded the image and resized it to the size that I required and printed it out on my white card stock, I coloured the image in with my Copics and cut the image to size. I cut a piece of Hero Arts, Punch layering paper slightly larger then the image and adhered together, I then cut a piece of October Afternoon patterned paper and also adhered this to the image. For the card I cut a piece of Kraft card stock, folded in half and attached the image to the front using some foam dimensionals. Next, I added a Hero Arts sentiment from the Huge Hugs stamp, I then felt that the card needed something else and so I decided to add stamped flowers under the sentiment, I stamped this with some Colorbox Ink, Frost White. Lastly, I sponged more Frost White ink around the edges of the card to soften.
Here is another view of the card:
A sweet image that is quite good to have in your collection, as you can size it to what you wish, so make sure you check out Heather’s site and maybe download a few sweet images for yourself.
So I also decided to share with you all tonight a little video showing what I purchased at the Craft Show that I attended last week and also a little Copic haul that arrived yesterday. Unfortunately, my camera does not have auto focus so you cannot read the numbers on the Copics, but I do tell you what numbers I purchased.
Well I am off to catch up on the net a little and possibly work on another project in the craft room.
