Bunny love with digi stamps

Hello Everyone,

A super quick post to show you how to make a sweet Easter card using digital stamps. I am using a cutie from Gerda Steiner Designs for their February challenge.

GSD_bunnies_01

I printed and coloured the bunnies an cut them with a stitched rectangle die (MFT). I also die cut the Happy word (WPLUS9) 3 times: 2 black and 1 pink, and layered them on top of each other slightly off-setting the pink one to have a shadow.

I stamped an Easter sentiment under it from a Heffy Doodle stamp set.

I popped up my panel on a piece of pink gingham patterned paper an adhered it to a kraft card base. A bit of Tonic Aqua shimmer on the tulip, some white gel pen dots on the cheeks and black glaze pen on the eyes and my card was ready.

I will upload this to the Gerda Steiner Designs February Challenge and to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything goes.

IPC #66 – more inspiration

Inky Paws Challenge

Happy Monday Everyone,

I am back here again with some more baby cards for the Inky Paws Challenge #66 Baby theme.

I purchased the Lovable Laundry stamp and Stitched onesie die set last year from Newton’s Nook, and it became one of my favourites since then. The images are super cute, so easy and fun to colour, the possibilities are endless. It makes the sweetest baby cards and the die adds some faux stitching which is adorable.

For this week I wanted something really colourful and suitable for a new baby boy. I selected a couple of Doodlebug patterned paper and die cut them using a stitched collage die from MFT. I cut the same die also from coordinating coloured cardstock and paper pieced them on a white top folding card base.

I stamped the sentiments in black ink on the blue panels on both cards. Then I stamped the onesies on Copic friendly cardstock and coloured them with Copics. After die cutting them I popped them up on the cards using extra layers of the onesie cut from white cardstock. It looks like chipboard in this way.

On one of the cards I added some white fancy scalloped circles under the onesies for more contrast. It would not be a card from me without some  Tonic Aqua Shimmer and glossy accents.

Wild birthday

Hello Everyone,

I am popping in with some clean and simple cards I made for the current MFT Sketch Challenge.

MFT_wild_birthday_01

I used the Wild about you stamp set, coloured with Copics and die cut with the coordinating dies. I stamped the sentiment also on a die cut banner (retired MFT die set) using the same black ink.

MFT_wild_birthday_04

Then I die cut a stitched rectangle using pretty gingham patterned paper (MFT), a stitched scalloped circle frame from white and coloured cardstock and a vellum circle. I layered these on top of each other and adhered to the patterned paper.

MFT_wild_birthday_05

I popped up the critters with foam tape in the middle of the circle frames. I love how the vellum tones down the gingham pattern in the background. I used 3D foam also on the sides of the banners and embellished them with crystal gems.

MFT_wild_birthday_03

To finish the coloured images, I used a white gel pen to add some details, a black glaze pen on the eyes and glossy accents on the nose and dots of the giraffe.

MFT_wild_birthday_08

I will upload these to the MFT Sketch Challenge #373.

IPC #66 – fun baby card

Inky Paws Challenge

Hello Everyone,

A new challenge is live on the Inky Paws Challenge site. The theme is Baby cards, such a fun thing to create.

For my card today I wanted to challenge myself and use the latest Newton’s Nook Designs stamps I have. So I created a little cupcake family using images from Sending Hugs and Love bites. I coloured them with Copics and cut them out with the coordinating dies.

20180214_153133 wm

Then I set the scene: I die cut a stitched heart from white cardstock, 2 stitched scalloped edges from green, a piece of Doodlebug patterned paper and some strips of purple cardstock. I assembled the card on a white card base ad popped up the little cupcake with 3D foam tape to put it in the spotlight.

20180214_153147 wm

The sentiment is from Lovable Laundry, stamped in Lavender ink.

20180214_153020 wm

I wanted to make it more playful, so I hand drew a face to the little cupcake to match the “parents” in style. I used a black glaze pen on the eyes and glossy accents on the hearts. I added a tiny amount of shimmer with my Tonic Aqua Shimmer pen to the cupcake holders.

20180214_153118 wm

I hope you got inspired and you will play along with us at the Inky Paws Challenge Inky Paws Challenge this week. You have 2 weeks to link up your projects to be eligible for the 20USD gift certificate to the NND online store.

See you soon with another fun card. Have a lovely day!

MFT Creative Olympics – Crafty Biathlon

Hello Everyone,

I am back today with my last card for the MFT Creative Olympics. Event #3 is called Crafty Biathlon and we had to choose a technique and a card type to make our projects.

From the list I chose Emboss Resist and Shaker, here is my card:

20180218_153649 wm

I stamped the Watercolor stripes background stamp with Versamark ink on Bristol Smooth cardstock and used Hero Arts White satin pearl embossing powder. After heat setting it, I added Distress Oxides (Candied Apple, Spiced Marmalade and Fossilized Amber) to have a gradient effect. I die cut a stitched rectangle and also the word You. I used black Staz-on ink to stamp my sentiment on the embossed part.

20180218_153405 wm

I backed the panel with acetate and created my shaker wells using 3D foam tape. I separated the letters as I wanted to add 3 different coloured microbeads along with some red heart sequins to match the distress oxide inks I used. I glued the card base on the panel and my shaker was ready.

20180218_153603 wm

First I thought I would add die cut flowers to the front but then I came across the little sheep from Ewe are the best set and had to use that. I coloured it with Copics and added glossy accent to the heart and used a black glaze pen on the hooves and eye.

20180218_153700 wm

I will submit this card to the MFT Creative Olympics Challenge and to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Add a die cut.

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you so much for popping in, please check back tomorrow for the new Inky Paws Challenge inspiration.

See you,

MFT Creative Olympics – Speed Cardmaking

Hello Again,

It is my second post today as I wanted to catch up with the MFT Creative Olympics Challenges. Event #4 is all about speed, the task is to make a card within 20mins.

20180217_142814 wm

As I am slow in colouring, I designed a card with die cutting only. I planned everything in advance (usually I don’t), prepared all cardstock and dies and stamps. Then I set the timer and got started.

20180217_142844 wm

I die cut the deer from brown cardstock 3 times and the antlers from kraft 3 times. I adhered them together using a glue pen to make it fast. I die cut a stitched rectangle from white cardstock and added the stitching detail with the Die-namics Stitched Strips die. I also die cut the Fabulous word from glitter cardstock and glued it to the stitched panel along with the deer.

20180217_142954 wm

Then I stamped the rest of the sentiment around the die cut word, gave the whole panel a teal mat and adhered it to my card base.

20180217_142859 wm

I ran out of time so I kept the embellishments to the minimum, only one little gem on the nose and my card was done. Just within 20mins. 

20180217_142827 wm

I will upload this project to the MFT Creative Olympics Challenge Speed Cardmaking, and to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Add a die cut.

I hope you like it and will return tomorrow to see my last card for the Creative Olympics.

See you then,

Zsofi

MFT Creative Olympics – Freestyle

Hello Everyone,

I am back today with 2 posts for the MFT Creative Olympics, The first one is my entry to the Freestyle challenge.

The task is to make a winter card. Here is mine:

20180217_143928 wm

I had  a fun alcohol inked background from an earlier creative session, which I was longing to put on a card. So I kept it simple. Stamped and coloured the little girl from the Warmest wishes (retired) set, used the coordinating die to cut it. I also cut a chained scalloped oval from white cardstock to glue around the girl.

20180217_143838 wm

Then I white heat embossed a sentiment from the set on a thin strip of black cardstock (I used a die from Blueprint 22 to cut it thin) and popped it up with 3D foam tape.

20180217_143823 wm

As a finishing touch I used stickles and glossy accents, and added some white dots with a Gelly roll pen. A few sparkling clear snowflakes I just had to add to make it really wintery.

20180217_143907 wm

I will upload this project to the MFT Freestyle Challenge, to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Add a die cut.

I hope you like my card and will return soon for more inspiration.

See you,
