I am back today with a set of floral cards which can fit any occasion. When I first saw the Spring Blooms paper pad from Newtons Nook Designs I wanted to pair the pretty florals with their coordinating stamps (released earlier).
So I started stamping the Dainty Daisies and Daffodils stamps with Versafine Onyx black ink on Bristol Smooth cardstock and clear heat embossed the images. Then I used my Tombow Dual Tip markers and a waterbrush to paint them. When everything was dry, I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
I selected the matching papers from the Spring Blooms paper pad and cut them out with a Framework die. I added a colorful mat for each. I used the same die set to cut 3 frames for each card from coloured cardstock: I layered them on top of each other for a dimensional look and backed it with a thick vellum (you can double up the normal vellum too for a similar look). I popped up the flowers on the vellum with 3D foam squares.
I white heat embossed a sentiment on black cardstock and adhered it to the bottom of the frames before mounting the focal panels on the backgrounds.
As a finishing touch I added a few clear gems which looks like water droplets. I love how it enhances the freshness of this design. I also used glossy accents in the middle of the daisies. Both shouting Spring, don’t you think?
I hope you liked my cards and will pop in again soon for more inpiration.
First I stamped and coloured the beautiful image using Copic markers. I love these flowers so much, I got in Spring mood simply by colouring them! The colours I used are: R39, R46, R27, R24, R22, R32, R21, R20, YR08, YR09, YR16, Y38, Y35, Y15, Y08, Y11, YG67, YG65, YG61, B0000.
Then I took the scalloped oval die from Oval Frames to cut the image out and while I was die cutting I also cut a bit bigger oval from green cardstock.
The sentiment is from the Mom and Day stamp set, I stamped it on a pretty peach banner which I have cut with the A7 Frames and Banner die set, I also added a thin black fishtail banner on each side as decoration. I popped it up on top of the flowers using 3D foam squares.
As a finishing touch I used a bit of clear shimmer on the daffodils, and a black glaze pen on the flower centers.
I wish you enjoyed my card today and got inspired. These oval stamps are so versatile and perfect when you just want to sit and colour. Check out their other designs too!
I used the coordinating dies to cut them all out. While I was die cutting, I cut a white postage edge rectangle with the Framework die and a piece of grass with a Land Border die. I cut down a light blue cardstock to fit inside the white rectangle and did a little ink blending on the edges for a bit of shading. I used Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink with a blending brush.
I stamped a sentiment on the top right corner and assembled the scene.
I used 3D foam squares to pop up the car. I gave the scene a thin teal mat before I adhered it to the white background. For the card base I chose kraft this time. The tiny butterflies and bees make the perfect embellishment!
As a finishing touch I used a clear shimmer pen and glossy accents.
I love clean and simple stenciled cards and the new Spring Garden Line stencil will cover you for all occasions! I created 2 cards to show you 2 different designs but the variety is endless just by changing up the colours and sentiment.
As a touch of extra, I used a tin strip of gold glitter cardstock for both designs. It makes a huge difference!

Welcome to another edition of my Perfect Combos series for Heffy Doodle, this time a die cut garden card which can be altered to suit any occasions. I used some dies and stencils from the latest release to create this cutie, let me guide you through the process.
First I used the Wonderful Windows Masquerade stencil on white cardstock and blended in Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide ink. Before removing the stencil I added some water droplets and diluted ink splatters to get a little texture.
For the mini gardens I used the new Rolling Hills Landscape Dies: I die cut grass and tulips with the small dies included in this die set. I used Heffy Doodle cardstock: Winter Green, Kiwi Crush, Butterscotch and Bubblegum. After assembling the card, I covered the tulips with a clear shimmer pen, just a for a touch of sparkle.
As this card was meant for Mother’s Day, I used the sentiment from the Special Day Sentiment Duos stamp set, but if you change the sentiment it can be a perfect retirement or birthday card too. I cannot wait to make this in all different colour combinations for different occasions!
I wish you enjoyed my card today and share with us in our Facebook group if I inspired you. Follow me on Instagram if you like my cards, your support means so much to me! Thank you!
Mother’s Day is this weekend in the US so I thought I will share with you a lovely Lilac shaker, which is easy to make. I used products from Newton’s Nook Designs.
First I stamped the Lilac image on Bristol Smooth cardstock with Versafine Onyx black ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then I used my Karin Brush markers to paint them quickly. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
For the shaker part I die cut the scalloped frame from Frameworks 4 times and layered them on top of each other, inserting a piece of acetate under the top layer. I also die cut the scalloped rectangle die from the same set from light blue cardstock, it serves as the backing of the shaker. I adhered a few rhinestones on the backing then filled it with some Moonshine Confetti from Simon Says Stamp and Raindrop confetti from Trinity Stamps.
We celebrate Mother’s Day on the first Sunday in May so it is today! I had the best treat in the morning: a Lego heart and a small letter waited for me in the bedroom when I woke up. My kids put it there at night while I was asleep – I wonder how come they woke up in the middle of the night just to put it there. They are so sweet! The card I brought you today is the one I am giving to my mother. I used stamps and dies from Pretty Pink Posh.
I die cut the Heart Vines cover plate die 3 times from green cardstock and layered them on top of each other.
I stamped a few flower heads and little bees from the Bee friends stamp set and coloured them with Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers: BG10, BG7, MG3, MG1, GB4, CT3, CT1, IB1. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
On a white card base I lightly blended Spun Sugar Distress Oxide ink. I made it lighter towards the middle, where I stamped the Mother’s Day sentiment. I covered it with the heart from the green die cut until I added splatters: water droplets and Finetec Metallic Watercolours in pink and pearl.
After assembling the card, I adhered the bees and flowers and added glossy accents to their centers. I also used a clear shimmer pen on the bees’ wings.
I also added bees inside the card and stamped another sentiment from the Bee Friends stamp set.
I wish you liked my card inspiration today and will check back soon. I share some extra tips on Instagram, so it is worth to check it out. Your support means a lot to me, thank you!
I am back again with my last Mother’s Day card this year dedicating this one to ALL supermoms out there. Being a mother is the biggest blessing and the best gift which comes with an emotional extra package (expanding with the years). I am grateful every single day to have my kids and experiencing the unconditional love which I feel for them and they feel for me.
For my card today I used the pretty Peonies stencil from Pretty Pink Posh: on a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock I inkblended Kitch Flamingo Distress Oxide ink for the flowers first. I simply turned the stencil around and masked off the leaves with post it tape to make sure I dont accidentaly go over the unnecessary open areas.
When I was happy with the arrangemet of the flowers I created masks for them from Masking Paper and covered each flower. Now it was time to add leaves with Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink. After removing the masks I added some splatters with my Finetec Mica Pearlescent Watercolours, I chose the dark pink and black this time.
While I am waiting for the new release from Pretty Pink Posh to arrive, I was playing with some of my favourites from the previous ones. I have created a cute card with Bunny Friends and Mother’s Day stamp sets.
First I stamped the images and coloured them with Copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut everything out. I made sure to have some extra little flowers and leaves to make the bouquets even bigger. We can never have too many flowers for Mom, right?
I die cut a piece of Neenah Desert Storm cardstock with the Diagonal Stitched Rectangle die from MFT. It is an old favourite of mine, adds the perfect amount of detail to any project. I adhered it to a top folding A2 sized card which I previously covered with a rainbow striped patterned paper from Doodlebug design.
I assembled my little scene and popped up the bunny with 3D foam squares. I covered the vases with glossy accents, it gives a lovely shiy and raised look, I love it! I also used a black glaze pen on the flower centres.
For the sentiment I chose the Pretty Pink Posh Happy Mother’s Day Script die and die cut the Happy part 3 times from pink cardstock. I layered them on top of each other and adhered it under the bunny.
The rest of the sentiment I white heat embossed on a very thin piece of black cardstock. The sentiment is from the Heffy Doodle Classic sentiments set. I used 3D foam squares under it to stand out more.
It is my turn today on the Newton’s Nook Designs Blog and as Mother’s Day is approaching fast, I thought I would show you a pretty garden scene card for the occasion.
I started with stamping and colouring the Bleeding Hearts with Copic markers. I went with bright pinks this time with a vivid green combo for the leaves. I made 2 flowers and a few extra flower heads. I cut everything out with the coordinating dies.
To the bottom of a white top folding card base I adhered an inch wide patterned paper piece. Then I die cut grass from green cardstock using the Land border die. While I was at die cutting I also cut a Fence from white cardstock.
Before assembling the scene I did a little ink blending in the middle of the card base: a bit of Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink with a very light hand and a blending brush.
Above the scene I stamped part of the sentiment from the Bleeding Hearts set in black and adorned it with the extra flower heads. I also stamped a sentiment from the Mom&Dad set on a pink rounded banner (Banner Trio die set) and popped it up to the bottom of the card with thin 3D foam tape.
The only embellishment I used this time was tiny drops of glossy accents on the white parts of the flowers.
I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration and will pop in again soon.
Today is Mother’s Day in Hungary and I am always very sentimental about it. I am very close to my mum and even though I try to show her love and care on a daily basis, we always make something extra with my kids on this day. We got her roses and tulips, the kids sang and my daughter recited a lovely poem. She even made a very pretty card for her, and my son – who just learnt how to write – wrote her a letter. So touchy. As a cardmaker I had to make my own card too.
I have made a colour swatch for the colours I used. I used the coordinating dies to cut everything out.
For the background I used the Sizzix Texture Fades Brickwork 3D embossing folder. It is amazing! I used it on Bristol Smooth cardstock because I wanted to do some ink blending after: I used Hickory Smoke and Black Sooth Distress Oxide inks. I also added some black and white splatters ad dried it with my heat tool.
