I created this card for the current My Favorite Things Colour Challenge #108 and Sketch Challenge #418. The My Favorite Things Otterly Love You stamp set is so cute. The stamp images were coloured with Copic markers and die cut with the matching dies.
I started by dry embossing the larger Dienamics Stitched Dome nested die onto the background cardstock and masked off the edges so I could ink blend distress oxide Chipped Sapphire over the shape. I then die cut a smaller dome out of white cards stock and used the Dienamics Ocean Waves dies to cut the top of the dome into wave shapes and added some extra wave shapes. I then blended Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire over the die cut. To make the waves stand out a bit more I also used the waves dies to cut some vellum and offset them behind the waves.
Once the front die was completed I sprinkled water over it and patted it dry with a paper towel to give a watery effect. The sentiment was heat embossed with Hero Arts White embossing powder.
Tip: Make sure the distress oxide ink is completely dry before heat embossing. To check if it’s dry tip some embossing powder over the card and tip off. If any remains then it’s not quite dry. Use a heat tool to dry completely or leave to air dry for longer.
Finally, I added some Liquitex irridescent medium with a brush to the heart and the fish and coloured over the otters nose and eyes with a black marker to make them darker.
Playing along with my first card challenge for 2019 at CAS(E) this Sketch #302. I used Altenew Get Well Soon stamp set and my Brother Scanncut DX1200 for the name.
Firstly, I blended Distress Oxide Inks over the background (Strathmore Bristol Paper) in Wild Honey and Crushed Olive. I then stamped the three honeycomb images in the stamp set with Altenew Honey Drizzle and Warm Sunshine.
I had designed the name with my Scanncut using the draw and cut feature and coloured with copics. The flowers and bees were stamped on copic friendly cardstock with Momento Tuxedo Black Ink and coloured with the following copic colours.
There are a few firsts with this card… 1. Making a slider card and 2. Adding a video to my blog.
When I saw the new release stamp set Dress Me Up from Create a Smile Stamps I had an idea to use a slider mechanism to dress the bears. Originally I thought I would have the clothes on the slider but decided (while out walking my doggos and mulling my idea over) to put Mr Bear on the slider instead. Excuse the nakedness 😜.
Watch the video below to view it in motion.
I love how Mr Bear’s clothes turned out… A little bit of checked fabric going on.

I’ll also be entering this card in the latest Create a Smile challenge.
I thought I should extend myself more by entering another challenge…this time a sketch challenge over at My Favorite Things.
I had an idea to use a tulle see through window (well not a new idea but a new technique to me!). Because it made me think of floating I thought the My Favorite Things space themed stamp sets I have would be perfect. I used the Out of This World set for the stars and sentiment and Space Explorer for the rest of the images. The circle was die cut with the DienamicsInside Out Stitched Circle die.
I stamped the stars with Delicata Silver Ink (first time using it and I LOVE IT) and heat embossed the sentiment with Zing Silver Metallic embossing powder and added a little embossing on the nose of the space ship. A little bit of extra bling with silver confetti stars too.
My entry for the latest challenge over at AAA Cards CAS Game #120 – Somewhere Over The Rainbow. I used two Waffle Flower Stamp Sets – Biking Girls and the sentiment from Gym Rat.
This is a fun layering stamp set and I used the following Distress Oxide inks to stamp the images in rainbow order – Candied Apple, Carved Pumpkin, Squeezed Lemonade, Lucky Clover, Salty Ocean and Wilted Violet. The bikes were stamped in Altenew Silver Stone and Industrial Diamond with the hair stamped in AltenewEspresso and Rocky Shore.
My third card using Create a SmileStampsGull Gang.
I think the water ripple stamp is supposed to be used as the aerial view of wood but I thought I could use it as part of the seagull floating. Heat embossed with Zing embossing powder in Wave. I then ink blended Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide over the top.
I also embossed the ripples onto vellum and cut out so I could make a focal point of the seagull. Adhered it with glossy accents. The seagull was simply copic coloured. The sentiment is from Wplus9Whole Lotta Happy and heat embossed in Hero Arts white embossing powder.
Final touches by adding white gel pen ripples, droplet embellishments and glossy accent beak on seagull… And it’s done.
I’ll be entering this into the Create a Smile Facebook page challenge ‘Summer’.
