Ok! Let’s get to the card making! I stamped a bunch of the images from the Celebrate Life stamp set with black ink on Neenah white cardstock. I colored in the images with the Nuvo alcohol markers and then cut them all out.

I picked out the “happy birthday” sentiment from the Celebrate Sentiments stamp set and stamped it onto a large strip of white cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink. I then adhered that strip onto a panel of patterned paper. Using a white gel pen I went around the edge of the patterned paper with dashed lines.

I arranged all of the images on the panel and then glued them down with either Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive or foam tape. I then glued the whole panel onto a card base. I added highlights to all of the stamped images with a white gel pen.

For the finishing touches I first used Nuvo Crystal Glaze on the balloon, the cherries, and the circles on the cake. Next I added some sparkle here and there with a glitter brush. Finally I added a whole bunch of sequins on the background to make this card really look like a real crazy party.

Thanks for joining me today, be sure to keep hopping along!

Happy BEEday Release Blog Hop | Honey Bee Stamps

Hello crafty friends! Today is Honey Bee Stamps first day of a two day blog hop celebrating their Happy BEEday Release. This release is particularly exciting because Honey Bee Stamps is also celebrating their 4th birthday! So make sure to head over to their blog to find out more about the whole celebration!

I created a card featuring the Chicken Coop die set, the Spring Chicks stamps and dies, and the Eggcelent Sentiments stamps and dies.

2.jpg

I stamped a bunch of the images from the Spring Chicks stamp set onto some Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock. I then colored those in with Copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating dies.

1.jpg

Next I took the Chicken Coop die set and cut the large section of the coop out of dark blue cardstock. I cut the scalloped roof die from some dark gray cardstock and the hay pile from some yellow cardstock. I popped up the larger piece onto a piece of dark gray cardstock and glued the rood and hay on with liquid glue.

4.jpg

I arranged the little chicks that I colored in inside the coop and glued them down. I also added one chick in the middle of the doorway and placed the cracked egg shell over his head. I stamped a sentiment from the Eggcelent Sentiments set on white cardstock with black ink. I used the coordinating die set to cut that sentiment out and I popped it up on the top of the chicken coop.

3.jpg

To finish up the card I created a 5 x 5 card base and then popped up a 4.25 x 4.25 piece of light gray cardstock on top of that. I then glued the entire chicken coop scene onto that. Finally, I used Wink of Stella to add some glitter to the egg shell and the sentiment.

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.

3.JPG

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.

2.jpg

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.

4.JPG

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.

Easy Watercolor Background Shaker Cards | Brutus Monroe

Hello everyone! Today I am sharing a couple of really fun birthday shaker cards for the Brutus Monroe blog hop!

1.jpg

I started out by creating some colorful watercolor backgrounds using Aqua Pigment paints. I used a technique to make these backgrounds that is so super easy to do, I highly recommend checking out the video so that you can see how it is done!

2.jpg

Once the background were dry I used a large circle die to cut them into two circles. I then took the same die as well as a slightly smaller circle die to make two frames out of white cardstock. I also cut two circles out of some acetate. I glued the acetate circles to the frames to create my shaker windows.

3.JPG

I added some doubled up foam tape around the frame to create my shaker area. I then filled the shaker with Pastel Paradise sequins from Lucy’s Cards as well as clear Micro Pearls from Brutus Monroe. I closed the shakers up with the watercolor backgrounds.

4.JPG

I created two 5 x 5 card bases and glued some Simon Says Stamp Fog cardstock to the front. I then glued my shaker circles to the middle of both of the cards.

5.jpg

For the sentiments I used a stamp from the Super Sentimental stamp set from Brutus Monroe and embossed them with Alabaster embossing powder on some black cardstock. I popped the sentiments up onto the centers of both cards and went over them with Wink of Stella glitter.

Brutus Monroe Subscription items blog hop

Hello everyone! I am sharing a card today for the Brutus Monroe blog hop which is featuring their subscription products for the month!

1.jpg

I first took a panel of Bristol Smooth paper and blended across is with some rainbow colors of Distress Oxide ink. I then took the stencil of the month and placed it on top and pressed embossing ink through it onto the blended panel. I embossed the stencil design with the embossing powder of the month which is the color pearl.

2.jpg

I popped up the panel onto a card base with foam tape. I added a strip of black glitterstock along the edge of the card.

4.JPG

For the sentiment I took out the stamp of the month and stamped the “hoppy spring” sentiment in black ink on white cardstock. I popped up the sentiment strips onto the card with foam tape.

3.JPG

To finish up the card I went over the sentiment with Wink of Stella glitter and I added some sequins.
