Using a Stencil Two Ways | Simon Says Stamp Snowflakes Stencil

Hey guys! I am back with a really quick card today using the Snowflakes stencil from Simon Says Stamp.

1.jpg

I used the stencil on a piece of Neenah white cardstock and blended over it with Fog ink from Simon Says Stamp. I then turned the stencil and blended over it again with Gina K Designs Barely There ink.

I used some post-it tape to mask off one of the snowflakes on the stencil and placed in on the panel. I then went over that one snowflake with Black Diamond glimmer paste. Once the paste was dry I picked out a sentiment from the Tiny Words Christmas set and stamped in with VersaFine Onyx Black ink on the panel.

I used foam tape to pop the panel up onto an A2 size card base. I then took the Joyful die from CZ Design and cut the word out of black cardstock and the outline out of white cardstock. I popped that up on the card with foam tape.

For the finishing touches on the card I added Moonshine sequins and went over the letters on the word Joyful with Wink of Stella glitter.

For my card I used the Healing Hugs stamp set. I stamped the floral from the set onto a panel of Cornflower blue cardstock with Gina K’s In the Navy ink. I then colored that in with Prismacolor pencils.

Using the same floral stamp I stamped around the edge of the panel using Versamark ink. I picked out the “Get Well Soon” sentiment which fits perfectly inside the floral wreath. I stamped that with the In the Navy ink and then I stamped it again right on top with Versamark ink. This way I was able to emboss over that sentiment with a clear embossing powder.

I dragged my Versamark ink pad along the edges of the panel and then embossed that with silver embossing powder. I blended some white ink onto the center of the card and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide ink along the edges. Using a clean cloth I wiped away any of that ink that was on the embossed areas.

5.jpg

I popped up that panel onto a 6x6 card base made out of In the Navy cardstock. Next I used a white gel pen to add a small amount of highlights to the flowers. I also took that pen and added little dots in different sizes around the wreath.

To finish up the card I used Nuvo Crystal Glaze on the centers of all the flowers to add some dimension.

Thanks for stopping by with me! I hope you have a blast this Stamptember. Happy crafting!

Simple Halloween Card | Little Boo Agenda Stamp Set

Hello everyone! I am back at it today with a really simple Halloween card using the Little Boo Agenda stamp set from Mama Elephant.

2.jpg

I started by creating my background using the Spider Web background stamp from Simon Says Stamp. I stamped it onto a panel of Royal Purple cardstock with VersaFine Onyx Black ink and then embossed over that with Rainbow Sparkle embossing powder. To finish the background I blended along the edges with Black Soot Distress Oxide ink.

3.jpg

I picked out nine ghosts from the Little Boo Agenda set and stamped them on Neenah white cardstock with Gina K Jet Black Amalgam ink. I colored them in with my Copic markers and then cut them out with the Scan N Cut.

1.jpg

I grabbed the “Booyah!” sentiment and embossed it on black cardstock with white embossing powder. I then cut the sentiment down into a strip. I adhered my background panel to an A2 card base made out of black cardstock and then popped up all the ghosts and the sentiment with foam tape.

4.jpg

To finish this card I added some highlights here and there with a white gel pen and then I used a glitter pen to add sparkle to the sentiment and the ghosts.

Creating an Ocean Themed Frame | Seahorse Background

Today I created an ocean themed card using the new Seahorse Background stamp from Simon Says Stamp!

1.jpg

I started by stamping the Seahorse Background onto a panel of Neenah Solar White cardstock with Fog ink from Simon Says Stamp. Next I took out the Beautiful Mermaids stamp set (also from SSS) , stamped a sentiment onto the panel and embossed it with gold embossing powder.

4.jpg

I repeatedly stamped the smaller stamps from the Beautiful Mermaids set onto some Bristol Smooth paper with Versamark ink and then embossed with with white embossing powder. I blended over the embossed images with lots of different colors of Distress Oxide ink and then cut them out with my Scan N Cut 2.

2.jpg

Using the Hero Arts nested circle die set I created a frame out of white cardstock. I then adhered a bunch of the colorful images that I cut out to the back of the frame to create my ocean themed wreath. I used the panel of cardstock that I cut the frame from as a stencil to blend some Gina K Designs Ocean Mist ink onto my background panel.

3.jpg

I popped up the frame onto the background with foam tape and added some sequins all around the inner edge. To finish the card I glued the panel onto a card base.

Distress Oxide Ink on Black Cardstock | Simple Birthday Card

Hello my friends! Today I am sharing a very simple birthday card featuring some Distress Oxide ink blending on black cardstock.

2.jpg

I started with a panel of Bazzill Licorice Twist cardstock and masked off a small section on the bottom. I then blended over that section with some Distress Oxide ink.

4.jpg

After that I continued using masking and different colors of Distress Oxide ink to create rays of color which all start in the bottom left hand corner. The colors that I used are Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch, Wilted Violet, and Seedless Preserves.

1.jpg

I cut the panel down to 3.75 x 5 and then picked out a sentiment from the Big Birthday Greetings stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. I stamped it with Versamark ink and embossed it with Alabaster white embossing powder.

3.jpg

Next I took out the Wish Upon a Star stamp set from Mama Elephant. I used all of the little star stamps from this set to stamp the background with Versamark ink. I then embossed them with Rainbow Sparkle embossing powder.

5.jpg

I added dashed lines around the border of the panel with a white gel pen. I then popped the panel up onto a back card base with foam tape.
