National Coffee Day Blog Hop with Pink and Main

Hello Everyone,

It is my second post for today as I wanted to make another coffee card for the National Coffee Day Blog Hop.

Pink and Main is a super sponsor, and they have so many adorable stamps/dies with coffee theme.

NCD_P&M_zsm01

For today’s card I used the Pumpkin spice set with its coordinating dies. I coloured the images with Copics bearing in mind the paper pad I wanted to use. I really enjoy matching my colouring with patterned papers. I knew I would use the Pumpkin Spice paper pad as it has so many gorgeous Fall coloured  designs.

NCD_P&M_zsm03

I trimmed the chosen patterned paper to cover an A2 sized card front. I also cut a strip of peach cardstock and a slightly bigger brown one to be the mat. I used a scalloped border to cut a small embellishing piece from blue cardstock and adhered all these together.

I stamped the sentiment on the bottom using orange ink and popped up the die cut images with Glue Dots Pop up dots.

I embellished the cups and cookies with a Tonic Aqua shimmer pen and highlighted some of the details with glossy accents.

Here is what I created:

NCD_NND_zsm01

I started with stamping a lot of mugs from the Cup of cocoa stamp set and coloured them with Copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

NCD_NND_zsm05

Then I created a white frame with the Mama Elephant Tri Widow die and backed it with a piece of patterned paper (Lawn Fawn Gotta have gingham). I die cut the word HUG using the Newton’s Nook Designs Essential alphabet die set, 4 times from metallic red cardstock. I layered them on top of each other and stamped the rest of the sentiment from the Cup of Cocoa stamp set (I had to do a bit of masking, but it was so easy with a Post it tape).

NCD_NND_zsm04

I popped up the mugs using Glue Dots Pop up dots. I like that it is transparent so even from the sides it looks nice.

NCD_NND_zsm02

I embellished the mugs with Tonic Aqua Shimmer pen and glossy accents. It looks so sweet in real life!

STAMPtember Newton’s Nook Designs Collaboration

Hello Everyone,

You can purchase the new Hello Beautiful Stamp set on its own or together with its coordinating dies today at Simon Says Stamp. Remember, these items are ONLY available through Simon Says Stamp while supplies last!

NND_SSS18_HelloBeautiful

I brought you today a one layer card, which I made with this adorable stamp set.

NND_STAMPtember_zsm01

First I stamped the 2 dogs on a heavy weight A2 sized card base (I used Neenah Solar White 110lb) and created masks from masking paper to cover them. When they were covered, I sponged some Tumbled Glass Distress ink around them for the sky but with a very light hand. I also added some grass using a stencil from MFT.

NND_STAMPtember_zsm03

Before removing the mask I added some glimmer paste through the SSS Falling stars stencil. I washed the stencil immediately under running water with a scrub, not to allow the past to dry over it.

NND_STAMPtember_zsm02

I coloured the images with Copic markers and stamped the sentiments in the flags the dogs are holding. I also decided to stamp an extra line on a light blue banner which I matted with  black and white striped one for more interest.

NND_STAMPtember_zsm04

As a finishing touch I added a bit of clear shimmer with my Tonic Aqua Shimmer pen to the collars and some glossy accents to the heart and the dogs’ noses. I also used a black glaze pen on their eyes to make them pop.

I hope you liked today’s card and got inspired. If you like this stamp set, then hurry to Simon Says Stamp and buy it till you can. Usually STAMPtember exclusives sell out fast! Please also check what my wonderful Design Team mates have created with this darling set:

Pink and Main + Glue Dots Collaboration Blog Hop

Hello Everyone,

Today we are starting a fun collaboration between Pink and Main and Glue Dots.

42119256_10156973763144683_3143786245285478400_o

Here is my card for the Blog Hop.

GlueDots&P&M_bloghop_zsm01

I started with die cutting the biggest Arch Tag die from a pretty Polka Dot patterned paper from the Sunset paper pad. I attached it to a white top folding notecard using Glue Dots 3/8″ Craft Dots (I just added 5 to hold the whole panel)

GlueDots&P&M_bloghop_zsm02

Then I die cut the Wreath Base die from heavy weight white vellum 2 times and adhered them slightly offset to the tag using Glue Dots Mini dots. I love that it gives tiny dimension and not completely flat!

GlueDots&P&M_bloghop_zsm03

I also die cut the Wishes sentiment from blue sparkle cardstock. The Glue Dots Micro dots were perfectly small enough to make it easy to attach this to the wreath. I stamped the rest of the sentiment from the Wishes stamp set in black.

GlueDots&P&M_bloghop_zsm04

I embellished the wreath with silver snowflakes (Winter Wreath Décor Dies), I popped them up with Glue Dots Pop up dots. I just simply cut one dot in quarters to fit nicely under the snowflakes. It is clear so even from the sides it is not visible, but gives a really dimensional look to the whole card. As a finishing touch I added Silver glossy dots in the middle of each snowflake.

2018 Card Design Superstar: Colouring Virtuoso

Hello Again,

As promised here is my second card for the MFT Card Design Superstar contest, for the Colouring Virtuoso category. I love to colour and the medium I enjoy the most is Copics. So I made a cute little Halloween card:

MFTCardDesignSuperstar_CV_zsm01

I started with stamping and colouring the images from the Witch way to the candy stamp set (the older version). I used new-to-me colours to stretch my supplies, I really enjoyed coming up with new colour combos. I used the coordinating dies to cut the images out. (As these are the old dies, the white rim is a bit wider than on the newer designs. I am thinking of re-ordering this stamp/die set, since I use it often and would love to have open dies)

MFTCardDesignSuperstar_CV_zsm02

For the background I bounced some blue-purple-black alcohol inks on Yupo paper with the help of a round felt blending tool and blending solution. I kept going till I achieved that marbled look. I think it is a pretty night sky like this.

MFTCardDesignSuperstar_CV_zsm04

To set the scene I die cut the Farm fence from grey cardstock an some grassy borders from black shimmer cardstock. I assembled the card placing the witch in the front using 3D foam tapes, while all the rest was adhered flat.

MFTCardDesignSuperstar_CV_zsm05

The sentiment is white heat embossed on a thin strip of black cardstock and added to the top of my card. To finish the design, I used a white gel pen and a black glaze pen to add some details and also some glossy accents on the boots, hat and the bow of the cat. I could not resist adding funny eerie eyes to the cat, it looks so funny this way!

MFTCardDesignSuperstar_CV_zsm03

If I had more time, I would try to create something for the Innovation Master category too, but I think I just need to let it go this year.

Thanks for checking my entries for the MFT Card Design Superstar Contest. Now just wish me luck to be selected 😉

See you soon with more fun cards!

2018 Card Design Superstar: Clean & Simple Genius

Hello Everyone,

I am struggling with a nasty flu but I could not give up on the yearly MFT Card Design Superstar contest, so I created this simple Fall card.

MFTCardDesignSuperstar_CAS_zsm01

I started with creating an alcohol inked background on Yupo paper using Fall colours. I mixed some greens, yellows, a drop of brown and copper too. When it was all dry, I treated it with an antistatic powder tool and black heat embossed one of the leaves from the Geometric Greenery  stamp set 3 times. I used the coordinating die to cut them out.

MFTCardDesignSuperstar_CAS_zsm02

I die cut a double stitched rectangle from some specialty cardstock, matted it with a black rectangle and adhered it to a white card base.

MFTCardDesignSuperstar_CAS_zsm04

The sentiment is a stacked Grateful die cut, the upper layer I cut from shiny black cardstock to match the heat embossing.

MFTCardDesignSuperstar_CAS_zsm03

I popped up the 3 leaves using 3D foam tape, and my card is finished.

MFTCardDesignSuperstar_CAS_zsm05

I will upload this card to the above mentioned contest – in the last minute I think 😀 Next year hopefully I will plan ahead better.

See you soon with my second entry for the contest.

Happy Fall

Hello Everyone,

I am currently struggling with a nasty flu, but managed to pull together a fall card for the Lawnfawnatics Challenge.

Lawnfawnatics36_zsm01

I wanted to create a fall background scene for my squirrels, which just arrived this week! I had to use them right away. I went through my older Lawn Fawn sets and I found more squirrels in the Cheery Christmas set along with tiny cute acorns, so I coloured them with Copics as well. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

Lawnfawnatics36_zsm05

For the background I did a lot of die cutting. First the Stitched Hillside backdrop die from kraft cardstock and some grassy hillside borders from green cardstock. I adhered these to the slope cuts, the curves match perfectly!

Lawnfawnatics36_zsm03

I cut the tree trunks from dark brown and the tree foliage from some fall colours. I even used a brushed gold one. The Stitched cloud backdrop die I cut from vanilla cardstock to make it special. The Stitched rectangle frame I cut from dark green.

Lawnfawnatics36_zsm04

As the scene is very busy, I adhered everything flat and the sentiment (Pick of the Patch) I stamped directly on the cloudy backdrop. I added some fall coloured sequins to the trees, a bit of white gel pen details and glossy accents to the tops of the acorns.

Lawnfawnatics36_zsm02

I will submit this to the Lawnfawnatics Challenge #36 Mood board.

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

See you,
