Australia has been in my thoughts alot lately due to the wild fires threatening so much of the country. This card is quintessential Aussie to me. It is made using products from the fabulous Uniquely Creative Stamp company .
Used images from two stamp sets – Good Onya for the Kangaroo and Eucalyptus Branch for the eucalyptus. I stamped them on alcohol friendly cardstock (I use a either Spectrum Noir or Hammermill cardstock) and coloured them with copics.
Diecut images with matching dies.
I knew I wanted to have a subtle background so once I had laid out the coloured images on a square card base I was able to work out where I was going to stamp the background leaves.
The branches are then stamped with Altenew Inks.
Once stamped I then adhered the images with dimensional foam tape.
Ink blended three Distress Oxide ink colours – Candied Apple, Worn Lipstick, Dried Marigold – over Strathmore Bristol Cardstock and cut out Mama ElephantHooray word die.
I scanned the die cut with my Scanncut and created an offset cutting file to create the shadow background. You could also do this my hand. I cut this out of Moonstone vellum and adhered the die cut to the vellum with Glossy Accents.
Hi Everyone, it’s time for the July 2019 challenge at AAA Birthday. Come along and visit our blog and see what the Design Team has created and a special welcome to Michelle Lupton as this months Guest Designer.
I used an image from one of the challenge sponsors A Day for Daisies – Potted Gerber Daisies and coloured it with Copics.
I created the base to be a sliding window card. I used the outside frame from the Mama Elephant Fancy Door Frame die set, parts of the Sunny StudioSliding Window Die and Memory Box – Stitched Rectangle Layers.
‘Thanks‘ die is from Birch Press which has the coordinating shadow. The word was cut out of white glitter paper and coloured with copics. The shadow was cut out of Lawn Fawn cardstock.
‘For Everything‘ was from the Altenew Inked Rose stamp set.
Tip: If you don’t have the right colour glitter card you can colour white or pearl glitter with copic markers. It will then coordinate with the rest of the card and still sparkle.
Hello again. This is a custom order I created recently. Happy I managed to purchase some of the Lily of The Valley digistamps before they stopped selling them and this image was a perfect fit for the recipient – Rugby Mad. Wanted to also try the My Favorite ThingsDouble Slider Loop Slot dies for the first time and it worked perfectly.
The Mama Elephant Swinging Borders and Lots of Letters sets were the perfect size to add in the corner as was the Sun from Concord and 9th Shine On. Of course, my go to cloud stencil from My Favorite Things along with their grass stencil makes the perfect background.
I had a custom order to complete recently and this is one of the cards I made. Loved using the Mama ElephantThe Dog’s Woof and Lots of Letters stamp sets. I really wanted to try to create different looks for the dogs and had great fun trying out some copic colouring techniques. I’m not sure which is my favourite but one does look suspiciously like it has chicken pox!
This card also has an interactive element which was pretty easy to create. I used the My Favorite ThingsSurf and Turf set. The photo below shows what appears when the slider is pulled – Mama ElephantCelebration Balloons.
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.
Long time no blog…I believe it’s time to publish another post.
I am starting to get into the swing of Xmas cards now and this one turned out great for me. I used the Mama Elephant ‘Me and My Yeti’ and ‘Yeti Sentiments’ stamp sets as well as Hero Arts ‘Winter Scene’ for the background trees and Impression Obsession Christmas Tree dies for the foreground. Those trees were diecut out of Resene Paints paint chips.
The background is simply ink blended with Ranger Distress Oxide inks in Cracked Pistachio and Broken China and then stamped trees with three green oxide inks (Lucky Clover, Twisted Ciron and Peeled Paint).
A new product I tried today was Liquitex Glass Beads Texture Gel. Its a transparent gel that you can also colour with paint, mixed with other mediums or paint directly over the top to achieve different looks. I just used it straight out of the tub and think it gives an icy look rather than an opaque white for snow. The hills were diecut with My Favorite Things ‘Surf and Turf’ die set. All the images were simply copic coloured.
Hope you enjoyed it and have a great day.
