All those doggos

Hey there and welcome back.

I had a custom order to complete recently and this is one of the cards I made.  Loved using the Mama Elephant The 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 Things Surf and Turf set.  The photo below shows what appears when the slider is pulled – Mama Elephant Celebration Balloons.

Hopefully the recipient loves it too.

Thanks for stopping by.

Dress a Bear – Slider card

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.

Other products used:

  • Mama Elephant Congrats all Round
  • My Favorite Things Dienamics Stitched Rectangle Stax
  • My Favorite Things Wood Plank background stamp
  • Ranger Distress Oxide Inks Ripe Persimmon and Candied Apple

I’ll also be entering this card in the latest Create a Smile challenge.

Thanks for stopping by.

MFT Sketch Challenge #395

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 Dienamics Inside 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.

Furry Friends

Love the latest release by Concord & 9th.  Decided to stick to using the Furry Friends stamps with matching dies for this set of cards (all except for the last card which used My Favorite Things Party die) and I hope you love what I’ve created.  I started by stamping all the images to try out some colour combinations using Altenew Crisp Dye Inks.  The layouts came together relatively quickly so the biggest decisions I had to make were which Die Cuts with a View patterned papers to use.  

Tip: Added bling with crystals.

Tip: The gold foil on the paper made my decision for the embossed sentiment easy.  Using vellum between the layers help to make the deer stand out.

Tip: Adding hearts out of the same glitter paper as frame added some extra interest.

Tip:  Added diamante heart to continue the theme of marriage.

Tip: Masked off each set of colours on paper so I could stamp the wreath in co-ordinating inks.  Added Glossy Accents  to wreath for dimension.

Tip:  Added vellum to help the panda face stand out.  Added gold thread to add a bit of interest.

Hope you liked the variety.

Challenge Card No 2 – MFT Color Challenge

Hi again.  Another quick post with card number 2 for the current My Favorite Things Color Challenge 86.

MFT_ColorChallenge_PaintBook_86

I  used two of the same products as Card No 1 (blog post for that card HERE) by My Favorite Things – ‘In Paris‘ stamp and die set, ‘Link Frame Oval Chains‘ die.   The images are stamped with the Ripe Raspberry, Orange Zest and Gumdrop Green and coloured in corresponding colours with Prismacolor coloured pencils.  The background cardstock is MFT Blue Yonder. I also applied Wink of Stella to parts of the images but doesn’t show well in photo and added a few diamantes.

First card of 2018

A special card for a new baby.  Any guesses which gender…

New Baby-1

I’ve had this card in mind specifically for the new baby using this digital image ‘Row of boots‘ by Stamping Bella and love how it turned out.  Simple copic colouring on boots and booties (digital image from Bugaboo).  My Favorite Things Die-namics Congratulations Circle Frame cut out of white cardstock and coloured with copics to mtrch blue in boots.  White heat embossed sentiment from My Favorite Things ‘Welcome Baby’. 

New Baby-1-3

Images cut out with Brother Scanncut and popped up with foam adhesives to give a bit of dimension.  Background paper by Sugar and Spice StudioNeon.
