I stamped all of the bunnies from the set on Bristol Smooth paper with Gina K Designs Jet Black Amalgam ink and colored them in with Arteza watercolor markers. I fussy cut the images out using my Scan N Cut 2.

I created a night sky background by first blending with Distress Oxide ink in the colors Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch, and Black Soot. I blended some cloud on the sky with the Cloud stencil from My Favorite Things and Unicorn white pigment ink from Hero Arts. I adhered this background panel onto an A2 size card base.

I embossed a bunch of the stars from the sent on the background with a clear embossing powder. I also embossed a sentiment with Alabaster white embossing powder.

I used some rectangle dies to create a frame out of white cardstock and popped it up on the card with foam tape. I also popped up one of the bunny images that I colored (the others were saved for future cards.) To finish up I went over the cloud and the frame with Wink of Stella glitter.

I started my card by stamping a ton of the balloons from the Party Balloons stamp set onto some Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock with Distress Oxide ink. The colors I used are Worn Lipstick, Festive Berries, Wild Honey, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Mermaid Lagoon, and Tumbled Glass. I cut the balloons out using the coordinating die set.

I created a frame out of white cardstock using a rectangle die and glued a piece of acetate to the back of it. I then glued a row of balloons along the top edge of the frame. Next I took an A2 size panel of white cardstock and blended some clouds on it using a cloud stencil and a light gray ink. I glued another row of balloons on that panel.

I used some doubled up foam tape on the edges of my frame to create a shaker are and filled it up with clear sequins and micro pearls. I closed up the shaker with the cloud panel. For the sentiment I used the Happy Birthday die set from Pink and Main. I also embossed a few smaller sentiments from the Birthday Script stamp set and popped them up on the card.

For the finishing touches on the card I used my Wink of Stella glitter brush on the sentiment strips and I also added a few sequins on the front of the shaker.

Watercolor Galaxy and Triangle Stencil | Simon Says Stamp

Hello friends! Today I created a card using the Gansai Tambi watercolors and some products from Simon Says Stamp.

1.jpg

I taped a piece of Canson watercolor paper to a board and I used Gansai Tambi watercolors to create a galaxy background. I also used Raven ink from Brutus Monroe to blend along the edges to create a vignette. I added white watercolor paint to an acrylic block and flicked it onto my paper to make the stars.

3.JPG

I taped down the Triangle Blast stencil from Simon Says Stamp over the background and went over it with Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer Paste. Once it was dry I trimmed it to 4 x 5.25 and popped it up on an A2 size card base with foam tape.

2.jpg

For the sentiment I picked out the Lucky to Know You die set from Simon Says Stamp and I cut it out of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock three times. I glued the three sentiments together using Gina K Connect glue to create a dimentional sentiment. I then glued that to the center of my card.

For the finishing touches I added a few Raindrop embellishments from Lucy’s Cards.

Little Boy Dinosaur Card | My Favorite Things

Hello my friends! Today I am sharing a card I designed for a little boy using the Cutieasaurus stamp set from My Favorite Things.

1.jpg

First I stamped the dinosaurs on Bristol Smooth paper with Gina K Designs Amalgam ink. I colored them in with Arteza Watercolor markers and then fussy cut them out using my Scan N Cut.

2.jpg

I taped the Mod Stripes stencil from Simon Says Stamp over a piece of 4.5 x 4.5 Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock. I went over the stencil with Ranger Transparent Gloss texture paste. I lifted the stencil white the paste was still wet and set the paper aside to dry.

4.JPG

I picked out a sentiment from the stamp set and embossed it with Alabaster white embossing powder on some Bazzill Licorice Twist cardstock. I then created a 5.5 x 5.5 card base and adhered a piece of Gina K Designs Tangerine Twist cardstock to the front. I mounted the textured panel onto a piece of Gina K Designs Sea Glass cardsotck and then popped that whole panel up onto the card base with foam tape.

3.JPG

I arranged the dinosaurs on the card and glued them down using liquid glue and foam tape. I also popped up my sentiment strip above them. I used white gel pen to add highlights to the dinosaurs and went over the sentiment with Wink of Stella. To finish up I added a few sequins and a little blush to the dinosaurs cheeks with a Copic marker.

I started by creating a background with some Distress Oxide ink blending. I used the colors Festive Berries, Worn Lipstick, Wild Honey, and Squeezed Lemonade. I then added some texture to the panel using Ranger Transparent Gloss Texture Paste and the Mod Stripe stencil from Simon Says Stamp.

I then cut the shadow die out of Bazzill Licorice Twist cardstock and glued the dimensional word to that. I stamped a few sentiments from the Great Things stamp with Versamark ink on black cardstock and embossed them with white embossing powder.

I mounted my textured panel onto a piece of black cardstock and then popped that whole panel up onto a card base with foam tape. I glued the die cut sentiment in the middle of the card with Gina K Designs Connect Glue. I then popped up my smaller sentiment strips above and below the die cut sentiment.
