Halloween Card Series 2018 – Day 7

halloween_2018_FB

Hello Everyone,

Only a few days left till Halloween, and after the shaker card of yesterday I brought you another special one today featuring goodies from Simon Says Stamp. It glows in the dark, yay! But let’s start at the beginning!

HalloweenCardSeries_SSS_zsm01IG

I stamped the Spider Web Background with Clear embossing ink on Bristol Smooth cardstock and heat embossed it with Black sparkle embossing powder. Then I sponged Mowed Lawn, Twisted Citron and Shaded Lilac distress oxide inks.

HalloweenCardSeries_SSS_zsm02

I stamped the images from SSS Trick or Treat stamp set, coloured them with Copic markers and cut them out with their coordinating dies.

HalloweenCardSeries_SSS_zsm03

Then on a piece of Slate grey cardstock I stamped the slime image few times next to each other till it covered the width of the panel. I used Clear embossing ink for this and heat embossed it with WOW Glow in the dark embossing powder.

I die cut the word Halloween (from the Trick or treat coordinating die set) from Lavender cardstock 2 times and adhered them on top of each other. On a tiny piece of green cardstock I stamped the word Happy.

HalloweenCardSeries_SSS_zsm04

I assembled the card and popped up the imaged with 3D foam squares. I stamped a few bats in the background and a little spider under the slime using black ink. A bit of Tonic Aqua shimmer pen , white gel pen dots, black glaze pen on the yes and glossy accent on the nose of the cat finished it off.

I will link this project to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge (Halloween/Spooky).

I hope you enjoyed today’s Halloween inspiration and will pop in again tomorrow for another cute one!

See you,

Halloween Card Series 2018 – Day 5

halloween_2018_FB

Hello Everyone,

Halloween is just around the corner, but I still have so many card ideas to share! I wish I could just stop the time and craft craft craft…

HalloweenCardSeries_PFS_zsm01IG

Today I brought you a quite simple card idea. I fell in love with this cute ghost by Picket Fence Studios, so it ended up in my cart when I was shopping at Simon Says Stamp during STAMPtember. I could not let the Halloween season pass without using this stamp. So I just coloured it with Copics bearing in mind the Reverse Confetti Abundant Autumn patterned paper I chose as a background. I love to match my colouring to the patterned paper I use.

HalloweenCardSeries_PFS_zsm03

After fussy cutting the image, I used a black Memento marker and went over the edges of the cut image to make it look like it was perfectly cut (even if it wasn’t).

HalloweenCardSeries_PFS_zsm02

I used an MFT stitched rectangle die to cut a piece from the patterned paper and adhered it to a slate grey note card. Then I used the MFT Linked Chain Oval Frame die to cut a black and a pink piece and layered them on top of each other. I adhered it to the card base too and popped up the ghost with 3D foam tape.

HalloweenCardSeries_PFS_zsm04

Then I heat embossed with white detail embossing powder a sentiment from the SSS Handwritten Halloween stamp set on Olive cardstock and cut it with the coordinating die. I just love this sentiment set so much! I used liquid glue to adhere it too on the bottom of my card.

HalloweenCardSeries_PFS_zsm05

As embellishment I used some clear star sequins and a white gel pen to add details to the ghost. I also covered it all with Tonic Aqua shimmer pen and added glossy accents to the pink stripes on his hat.

I will link this project to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge  and Wednesday Challenge (Halloween/Spooky).

I hope you like today’s inspiration and you will pop in tomorrow for more fun!

See you,

STAMPtember Newton’s Nook Designs Collaboration

Hello Everyone,

 

Today Newton’s Nook Designs is featured on the Simon Says Stamp site with an EXCLUSIVE stamp set that was designed just for the 2018 STAMPtember celebration!

Newton's Nook Designs_STAMPtember 2018 Exclusives_1080-01

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.

NND_STAMPtember_zsm06

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:

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!

Seize the day – CLBH #6

Good morning Everyone,

It is time for my last entry for the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. I enjoyed creating these cards so much, all my other ideas need to wait till the next hop. I wish good times could last longer…

29541159_10216244462694822_8004581139974979584_n

So my last card is a peaceful, really summery one. I stamped and coloured the yoga girl from the SSS Exercising girls stamp set, coloured her with Copics and used the coordinating die to cut her out. I used a craft knife to cut a slot for the coffee mug along the stamped line.

CLBH2018_summer_21

The prefect coffee mug I found in the Gerda Steiner Designs Monster fun stamp set. The coordinating die cuts around it so precisely that no white edge shows. It was perfect for the yoga girl.

CLBH2018_summer_23

I found a pretty beach scene paper in the Echo Park Summer party paper pad, cut it  bit narrower than an A2 sized card, gave it a black mat and adhered to a white card base. I stamped a beautiful sentiment from Stamplorations Coffeeology 2 stamp set. (Sherry really makes gorgeous coffee sets!)

CLBH2018_summer_22

A bit of clear shimmer and glossy accent finished off this simple but motivational card. I will hang it in our kitchen to brighten our mornings.

CLBH2018_summer_24

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

I hope you enjoyed my coffee cards and will return soon for more fun projects. If you like my art, please subscribe, it would make my day.

Thanks a latte,

Enough coffee – CLBH #5

Hello Again,

It is quite late here so I will keep this post short. It is my 5th card for the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

29541159_10216244462694822_8004581139974979584_n

I cut a strip of Copic friendly cardstock and stamped the coffee cup and critters from the SSS Coffee and friends and the SSS Stacked animals sets, without masking. Above it I stamped a sentiment in black.

CLBH2018_summer_17

I used Copic markers to colour them. I went over the word Coffee with a black glaze pen to have a bit of dimension and used glossy accents on the eyes of the bird and the hearts on the coffee cup.

CLBH2018_summer_18

I gave this panel an aqua mat and used 3D foam tape to mount it on a striped patterned paper (Doodlebug). I finished it off with some Studio Katia crystals.

CLBH2018_summer_19

CLBH2018_summer_20

I will link this card up also to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything goes.

Only one last card remaining, so make sure to come back tomorrow morning.

See you,

Zsofi

Koality holidays

Hello Everyone,

I wanted to share these cuties with you I made for a sweet friend of mine as a present.  She loves koalas and I wanted to turn the cute images from the Sugarpea Designs+Simon Says Stamp Stamptember collaboration set into little Santas.

20171223_081731 wm

I started with stamping an colouring the images with Copic markers and I die cut them with their coordinating dies. The Santa hats are from the MFT Beast Friends stamp set.

20171223_081824 wm

For the tags I used the small tag from Sugarpea Designs to cut them from heavy weight white cardstock which I previously covered with silver glitter tape. I adorned the tags with some green metallic branches (also part of the tag die set). I adhered the cute koalas on each and finished them with a thin red ribbon. A bit of Spectrum Noir sparkle pen and glossy accents of course I had to add.

The card I kept similarly clean and simple too. I die cut a stitched rectangle from white cardstock and ran it through the Big Shot machine one more time with the swirls background die from Simon Says Stamp. I die cut a stitched strip from the same green metallic cardstock and heat embossed a Hungarian sentiment (Scrapfellow) on it with silver embossing powder.

20171223_081753 wm

I gave it a silver mat using silver glitter tape and assembled the card. The same finishing touches I applied here too: glossy accents on the nose, black glaze pen on the eyes, Spectrum Noir Shimmer pen on the Santa hat.

20171223_081841 wm

I will upload this project to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything goes, to the Work it Wednesday Challenge (use something new) and to the Sugar Pea Designs Anything goes Challenge too.
