There is a lot to show you today, so let’s just dive in.

CARD #1

Newtons_thanksgiving_zsm01IG

For my first set of cards I stamped and coloured the cute images from the Newton’s Thanksgiving set. I stamped some extras from the chicken legs and pumpkins to fill the scene I had in mind. I used Copic markers for colouring and the coordinating dies to cut them out.

Then I cut a wide strip of patterned paper and a thin one to go on top of it from a coordinating coloured cardstock. I wanted to create the same design just different layout so I adhered these to a top folding and a side folding A2 sized kraft card base.

Newtons_thanksgiving_zsm05

For the top I cut a scalloped border from Peacock cardstock (Sky border die set) and on both cards I Stamped the sentiments using a light brown ink. I arranged the images and adhered them to the card either flat or popped up with 3D foam squares. As a finishing touch I added some Fall coloured sequins and a bit of glossy accents.

CARD #2

newtons_cornucopia_zsm01IG

I started again with stamping the image from the Newton’s Cornucopia set on alcohol ink friendly cardstock, used Copics for colouring and the coordinating die to cut it out. I Gold heat embossed the sentiment from the set on a strip of kraft cardstock, and popped up the image above it using 3D foam squares. I added a gold mat to this panel and also a dark brown scalloped border (Sky border die set) as embellishment.

For the side of the card I gold heat embossed the leaves from the set on a strip of Bristol Smooth cardstock and sponged several Distress ink colours on it to get the Fall feel.

A few extra details with a white gel pen and a black glaze pen along with a drop of glossy accents finished this card off.

CARD #3 and #4

Sept_stencils_zsm01IG

For these cards I used the gorgeous new stencils.

Sept_stencils_zsm03IG

For the first one I applied Walnut stain Distress ink through the Tree Ring stencil, then I removed the stencil and added Antique Linen Distress ink over the whole area.

I stamped a sentiment from a new sentiment set (will be revealed later this week) using dark brown ink and added glossy accents to the edges of the tree ring for a dimensional look.

Sept_stencils_zsm03a

Very clean and simple design, perfect for all the men in our lives!

Sept_stencils_zsm02IG

For the last card I applied Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxide ink on a dark brown cardstock through the Pumpkin Patch stencil. I went back and added some green with a mini applicator to the leaves and vines and I covered the whole with Cosmic Glitter paste.

Sept_stencils_zsm02b

After removing the stencil I washed it immediately under running warm water. When the paste was dry on the cardstock I trimmed it down a bit and adhered it to a kraft card base. I stamped a sentiment on a stitched kraft banner (Frames and flags die set) and adhered it to a smaller dark brown banner before I mounted it on the pumpkin background.

I just love the shimmer and shine the glitter paste gives!

Happy little hello

Hello Everyone,

It is raining since the 1st of September in Budapest, so it is not difficult at all to change from the summer crafting to the autumn one. Today I am showing you a sweet little greeting card featuring the Hedgehog hollow stamp set from Newton’s Nook Designs. They have just released coordinating dies for this set, which creates the perfect cut out. I love the rounded edges we get with coordinating dies!

NND_AugRelExtra_zsm01IG

I started with applying white texture paste to the Falling leaves stencil onto a white top folding notecard. I removed the stencil quickly and washed it immediately under running warm water not to allow the paste to dry on the stencil.

NND_AugRelExtra_zsm04IG

While my background was drying I stamped, coloured and die cut one of the images from the set and an extra little mushroom. I added some extra details with a black glaze pen and some glossy accents on the ladybug.

NND_AugRelExtra_zsm02IG

I die cut a stitched scalloped border from the Sky borders die set from kraft cardstock. I cut a strip of red gingham patterned paper and a bit wider strip from dark red. I layered these on top of each other.

NND_AugRelExtra_zsm03IG

I white heat embossed a sentiment on a black banner (Frames and flags die set) and layered it on the gingham paper. I adhered the images using liquid glue and 3D foam tape onto the stencilled background.

A little red twine on the top of the card finished it off. All products are available at the Newton’s Nook Designs online store.

I hope you liked today’s inspiration and will pop in again soon for more!

See you,

STAMPtember – last card for the Under the Sea Card Series

undertheseaFB_02

Hello Everyone,

As I mentioned yesterday, despite all the ideas and lovely products I still wanted to use in my card series, I think it is time to focus on fall before the holiday season breaks in 🙂 Today is also the first day of STAMPtember, a month long event created by Simon Says Stamp. It is my favourite crafty event and although I don’t have any of the new Simon release yet, I still wanted to be part of this great happening.

STAMPtember-1080x1080-1-1-735x735.jpg

I have created 2 cards using the Summer Cuddly Critters stamps and coordinating dies. I used Copic markers for the colouring.

UTScardseries_SSS_01IG

CARD #1

UTScardseries_SSS_06

To set the scene for the cute little dog I die cut the Hello Sunshine frame from SSS White cardstock (I love how heavy and smooth this is!). I backed the bottom with a yellow strip and the rest with a light blue cardstock with vellum over it for a subtle look. I love how soft the vellum makes it.

UTScardseries_SSS_08

I arranged the die cut images and adhered them with liquid glue. I die cut a stitched rectangle from a Sunny Studio Polka dot parade paper and adhered it to a white notecard.

UTScardseries_SSS_07

I added some clear shimmer to the floaty with a Tonic Aqua Shimmer pen, and some glossy accents to the sunglasses, rod of the umbrella and beak of the flamingo. I also used a black glaze pen on the nose and eyes.

UTScardseries_SSS_10

CARD #2

UTScardseries_SSS_02IG

For this card I first applied Salty ocean and Blueprint sketch Distress Oxide ink directly to Bristol Smooth cardstock. Then I added clear shimmer paste through the Waves stencil from Newton’s Nook Designs. I set it aside to dry.

UTScardseries_SSS_05

Meanwhile I die cut the Flowing Vine Collage die from a stitched rectangle. I used SSS heavy weight white cardstock again, it cuts beautifully. I added 3D foam tape to the pack of this panel and adhered it to the waves background after it was dry.

UTScardseries_SSS_04

I added the kitty mermaid and also a white heat embossed sentiment on a black strip of cardstock. I did not embellish this card at all, only used a black glaze pen on the nose and eyes and glossy accents on the star and the bra.

UTScardseries_SSS_03

I will upload this project to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything goes.

I hope you enjoyed my card series and will keep checking back on me. I also wish you happy crafting this month, I will definitely try to make even more cards than usual 🙂

Thanks for stopping by and see you soon!
