Bunny with flowers – Pretty Pink Posh

Hello Everyone,

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.

I will upload this card to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Feminine and to the Simon Says Stamp IG Challenge Favourite Technique (“rainbow everything” is a technique right?)

I hope you enjoyed this cute little inspiration and will pop in again for more cheerful designs.

See you,

Zsofi

Newton’s Nook Designs 7 year Blog Hop

Hello Everyone,

I am thrilled to join the Newton’s Nook Designs team in celebrating their 7th Anniversary with an amazing Blog Hop. There are 7 prizes to win and a fantastic weekend sale, scroll down for the details!

As slimline cards are oh so popular now I wanted to make a rainbow on using the new Slimline Frames and Windows and the Slimline Frames and Porthole dies. They layer on top of each other fantastically!

I started with a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock which was 8,5 * 3,5 inches and blended Distress Oxide inks at a diagonal in rainbow order: Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmelade, Mustard Seed, Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch and Wilted Violet. I used blending brushes, I find them easier to get a smooth blend. I sprinkled the panel with water droplets and also added a bit of Tsukineko Shimmer Spritz for a subtle sparkle. When it was all dry I die cut it with the scalloped rectangle from Slimline Frames and Portholes.

I also cut the porthole die from white cardstock and a black frame using the other slimline die set. I layered them on top o each other using liquid glue.

Then I stamped two glasses from the Cocktail Mixer stamp set on Bristol Smooth Cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink and used clear embossing powder to heat emboss them. Then I added colour with my new favourite Karin Brush markers. I love how strong the pigment is in these markers and the tip of it is not flimsy but rather firm. I used the coordinating die to cut them out.

In the middle hole I stamped two sentiments with Stazon Black Pigment ink and popped up the glasses with 3D foam squares.

I finished the cards with tiny clear jewels from Studio Katia.

Heffy Doodle and Inkon3 Blog Hop

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to the Heffy Doodle and Inkon3 Collaboration Blog Hop! Our design teams have come together to share some amazing inspiration featuring Heffy Doodle and Inkon3 products, and there are prizes up for grabs, too!

This was the first time for me to try Atelier inks. They are water reactive, come in bold, bright colours and so easy to blend! I was playing with them for a while, trying different techniques to create this vibrant card. Let me show you!

INK BLENDING

First I blended My Jam Purple, Peacock Blue, Goddess Green, Bee Sting yellow and Marilyn red using an ink blending tool. The ink pads are so juicy that I had to be super light handed at the beginning 🙂 Those colours are gorgeous! I used them on Bristol Smooth cardstock as it is my favouite one for ink blending thanks to its slicker surface.

STENCILING

Then I took the Fancy foliage stencil from Heffy Doodle, sprayed it with Pixie Spray from Thermoweb to ensure it is not gonna shift while I am ink blending. I used the same colours just with heavier hands. Before removing the stencil I sprayed it with a handmade shimmer spritz: in a mini spritzer I added Liquid Pixie Dust and spritzed it over the entire surface. It gave such a pretty sparkle to the pattern!

DIRECT TO PAPER

I also wanted to try how bold the colours are if I simply apply the inkpads directly on the paper without a blending tool. I even managed to layer the colours and got that stunning teal colour – that is my favourite! Ohh my bold colour loving heart was jumping! I used the Amazoninan leaves die set from Heffy Doodle to create a rainbow of different leaves and tiny flowers.

I cut down the background with an Imperial Stitched Rectangle die and also cut a tag using the Tag along die set. The frame and backing I cut from smooth white cardstock and I also cut a vellum backing to layer over the white one. It is not really visible on the pictures but in real life it smoothens the texture and makes the whole tag look so delicate!

I arranged the foliage, adhered everything in place. I used a chunky blue twine to embellish the tag and painted Liquid Pixie Dust over the flowers I also adde mini white pearls to the flower centers.

The sentiment I heat embossed on a black banner from the Heffy Doodle Party Palooza stamp set, and popped it up with 3D foam squares. For heat embossing I used the Inkon3 Juicy Clear embossing ink.

PRIZES AND GIVEAWAY INFO

Heffy Doodle will be giving away a 25£ CG and InkOn3 a 25$ CG to their respective stores.
Winners will be chosen randomly among all the comments left on the blog hop stops and announced on Sunday, June 7th on the Heffy Doodle and InkOn3 blog.

Remember to leave a comment on every stop in the hop to be entered to win!

Find a rainbow!

Hello Everyone,

Did you know that it is Find a rainbow day? I think when our world has turned upside down with the virus threat, we need to stay positive. We need to find our little rainbows daily. This thought inspired today’s die cut card, made with goodies from Pink and Main.

I started with die cutting the Rainbow die from coloured cardstock scraps. The clouds I cut from white cardstock, each one twice. I also cut a stitched rectangle from light grey cardstock and the Smile sentiment from blue violet, aqua and green scraps.

First I assembled the rainbow using a little bit of washi tape on the back of the biggest slice. Then I inserted the second biggest and so on until it was all one piece. I adhered it down to the stitched rectangle and placed one cloud at each end. The second cloud I popped up with 3D foam squares.

The sentiment layers I adhered tiny offset so all colours are showing. It gives dimension and a lot of interest to a simpl die cut sentiment. I finished it off with a matching sentiment from the Spring sentiments set, stamped with blue violet ink.

I covered the rainbow with clear shimmer and added a few silver glossy dots.

I hope you liked today’s inspiration and will come back for more. And I wish this little post helps you to find your own little rainbow today!

See you soon,

Zsofi

Rainbow flowers with Newtons Nook Designs

Hello Everyone,

I am back today with a very colourful floral card created with the Dainty Daisies stamp set from the latest release at Newton’s Nook Designs.

If you follow me you know that I am a real rainbow girl. I love bright colours, they cheer me up. And the other day when it was all rainy and gloomy here, I imagined myself on a field of rainbow coloured daisies…and it made me smile! I just had to make a card like that!

I started with a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock and stamped the daisies in the middle first. Then I created a mask from masking paper, covered the first daisies an stamped again. I repeated this until the panel was full.

I used Altenew watercolor markers to add colour to the petals and leaves. To get the shading I like I used a Tonic Aqua Shimmer pen to pull the colour from the middle of each petal.

When it was all dry, I stamped the sentiment on the top with black ink and die cut the panel with the postage frame die from the Frameworks set. I gave it a thin black mat and mounted it on a light grey card base.

I did not want to take the attention away from the pretty flowers so I used only a drop of glossy accents on the middle of each daisy. I love the raised shiny look I got this way!

Did you know that Newton’s Nook Designs have their own challenges? The current Inky Paws Challenge is all about rainbows. Hope you play along!

If you enjoyed my card today, please subscribe not to miss any of my posts. See you soon with more fun projects,

Glittery Rainbow with Pink and Main

Hello Everyone,

On such a beautiful sunny day I brought a very sparkly rainbow card to you which may cheer anyone up who feels a bit down. To create this cutie I used products from Pink and Main.

As always I started with stamping the rainbow, the sun and a bunch of clouds from the Bright side stamp set and coloured them with my Copic markers. I used their coordinating die to cut them out.

Next I worked on the background: I used the Clouds stencil with Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink to create a cloudy blue sky on an A2 sized notecard. When I finished the panel, I sprinkled it with water and let it sit for about 30 seconds before I dabbed it with a paper towel. I also added some diluted Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink splatters and some white acrylic paint splatters for a textured look.

I heat embossed the sentiment from the same stamp set on a strip of black cardstock using white embossing powder. I adhered it to the bottom of the card.

Before arranging the scene, I added a small amount of Ranger Multi Matte Medium glue with a precision tip to the bottom of each cloud and also to each line in the rainbow. I sprinkled some Hero Arts Prisma glitter on it and let it dry. When it was all dry I wiped off the access with a dry paint brush and mounted them all on the card using thin 3D foam squares.

To finish it off I scattered a few clear gems all around.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card and will pop in again for more inspiration, Until next time, happy crafting!

Newton’s Nook Designs May Release – Day 2

Hello Everyone,

It is Day 2 of the May Release reveals at Newton’s Nook Designs. After the movies we are into flowers. The new Dainty Daisies is a pretty floral stamp set with coordinating dies. All new products will be available on Friday 17/05!

Here is my card for today:

I started with stamping and colouring the daisies with Copic markers. I used only light greys for shading a little, but I kept the colouring simple.

I die cut it with the coordinating die and another piece from black cardstock. I layered them on top of each other slightly offset to get a shadow effect.

Then I used the Flags and Frames die set to cut the rounded stitched rectangle from heavy weight vellum and also a scalloped stitched die to cut from rainbow patterned paper as the background. I love the cheerful colours of this paper from Sunny Studio (Spring Sunburst collection).

After adhering all layers I die cut a black banner and white heat embossed the sentiment on it. I popped it up with 3D foam squares. I used liquid glue to adhere the vellum and hid the adhesive behind the flower so it does not show through.

I covered all the petals with Tonic Aqua clear shimmer and added glossy accents in the middle of each flower. I also added black dots around the flower with a black glaze pen. As a final embellishment I added some crystals from Lucy’s Little Things around the sentiment.

Today I have a little tutorial for you on how to get a pretty yet simple and very colourful card design. The recipe is simple: take a piece of patterned paper, some matching Hybrid ink colours and the new Wordalicious stamp set.

I started with adhering a gorgeous rainbow hearts patterned paper from the Candy Counter paper pad to cover the entire A2 sized card front.

Then I selected ink pads which matched the hearts: Four Leaf, Bali Blue, Dark Wash Jeans, La La Lavender, Grape Ape and Lipstick Jungle. I arranged the words I wanted to use in my stamp positioner using a lined acetate sheet as helper to make sure the spacing is right. As I used the mini ink cubes, I could easily ink up each word with a different colour at once. The stamp positioner allowed me to stamp them 3 times to make the colours pop and dark enough. Then I cut the stamped panel down.

Then I die cut 2 different scallop border dies: one from dark blue and one from lavender cardstock, layered them on top of each other and adhered to the white stamped panel. It is an easy way to add a little extra to a simple design.

I love the result, it is easy to re-create, even to make multiples of. And it is so colourful, totally cheers me up!

I hope you liked today’s inspiration and you will hop along and comment to win. Here is the full list for today:

26815189_10155694295756311_8572599981006706149_n

It totally got stuck in my mind, I had to make a very colourful, rainbow birthday card.

IPC69_zsm01_blog

I started with stamping all the different drinks from the Cocktail mixer stamp set, coloured them with Copic markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

IPC69_zsm03_blog

I adhered them to a strip of white cardstock which I embellished with 2 stitched strips of black cardstock. Then I stamped some of the sentiments from the stamp set using coordinating ink colours.

IPC69_zsm06_blog

I had some left over piece of rainbow patterned paper which I adhered to a white notecard and popped up the focal panel with 3D foam tape on it. Some Tonic Aqua Shimmer pen and glossy accents made the card really unique and fun to touch.

IPC69_zsm02_blog

I hope I inspired you to participate in the Inky Paws Challenge #69. You have 2 weeks to link up your project on their blog to be eligible to win a 20 USD gift certificate to the Newton’s Nook Designs online store.

Happy Spring – Lawn Fawn

Hello again,

It is my second card for the Colour challenge at Lawnfawnatics.

Lawnfawnatics_rainbow_05

I coloured the cute Easter party critters back in Cairo, so I just had to make a scene for them. I die cut a Party banner from vellum, stamped the sentiment with Stazon ink on the top. I also cut a grassy border from patterned paper and a picket fence from white cardstock.

Lawnfawnatics_rainbow_08

I adhered the scene, popped up some of the cute images with foam tape. I added some details with a white gel pen, Tonic Aqua Shimmer pen and glossy accents.

Lawnfawnatics_rainbow_07

I cut a piece of the pretty rainbow paper from the Really Rainbow paper pad to cover the fron of an A2 sized card. I used small drops of liquid glue under the stitching of the vellum banner to hide the adhesive. 2 little mirror enamel dots (Pink and Main) finished it off.

Lawnfawnatics_rainbow_06

I will upload this project to the Lawnfawnatics #25 challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything goes.

I hope this cute card made you smile and you will pop in again soon.
