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!

To the Moon and Back with Glitter | Mama Elephant

Today I am sharing a simple card using the Wish Upon a Star stamp set from Mama Elephant.

1.jpg

I started by stamped the sentiment on a piece of Gina K Designs In The Navy cardstock with Versamark ink. I embossed it with Alabaster white embossing powder. I then stamped starts and clouds from the Wish Upon a Star set all over the background with Versamark ink.

I die cut a bunch of clouds out of Neenah white cardstock and vellum with the Infinity Cloud die set from Hero Arts. I arranged them along the bottom of the background and glued them down with Gina K Designs Connect Glue. I then glued the whole panel to a card base.

I pulled out the colored in image of the bunny on the moon. I colored it in in a previous video and then didn’t end up using it. I popped that up on the card with foam tape. I then went over the moon with Glossy Accents and sprinkled Unicorn Dust glitter over the top.

To finish up the card I went over the vellum clouds with Wink of Stella and I added a few star sequins to the background.

Distress Oxide Night Sky | Mama Elephant

Hey everyone! Today I am sharing a card I created using the Wish Upon a Star stamp set from Mama Elephant.

4.JPG

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.
