Nutty or Nice? - Lawn Fawn Stamptember Exclusive

Hello there! I’ve got a super cute winter card to share with you using the Lawn Fawn/Simon Says Stamp Exclusive STAMPtember stamp set. As I write this blog post it’s still available but there are only 7 days left in STAMPtember and once it sells out it’s gone for good.  That’s one week, you better move fast!!! So if you like this stamp set run don’t walk to Simon says Stamp’s website and get it while you can.  I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo black ink.  Then I used distress inks to color in  the images with a water brush.  The distress inks I used were peacock feathers, salty ocean, tumbled glass, black soot, walnut stain, barn door and spiced marmalade. I used Spectrum Noir ultra smooth card stock to water color my images since I didn't have any water color paper on hand. It worked pretty good, went on smooth and had the weight to hold the water. I used the Big shot machine to prepare the embossed background. I used a embossing folder by Cuttlebug pravo cr

Toot your own horn, it’s your Birthday!

Hello Hello thanks for coming by today. I have a fun card to share with you today featuring the super cute stamp set “critter concert” by Lawn Fawn. I stamped all the critters in memento tuxedo black ink. Then I colored them in mostly Spectrum Noir markers and a few Copic markers.  I used TN8, EB8, IG6,IG8, BG6 and CT4 ( Spectrum Noir) and YR07 Cadmium Orange and E21 Soft Sun (Copic). To add highlights to the critters I used the Sakura white jelly roll 08 pen.  I used my Big Shot machine to do the embossed background which is a Cuttlebug by Pravo Craft embossing folder called “Allegro”. (I could not find this product in stock to link to I think it is discontined, there are a lot of music background stamps avaliable which you get a similar look with) I used black soot distress ink to distress the embossing and make it pop. The sentiment is also from the Lawn Fawn critter concert stamp set and it is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I then used abandoned coral distre

Life happens Coffee helps, Happy Birthday!

Hello happy Wednesday! Today I've got a super simple coffee card to share. I started off by creating the background piece with the coffee to go cups.  I used the sizzix Tim Holtz on the go texture fades embossing folder. I ran that through my Big Shot machine then cut it down.  Then I used ground espresso distress ink and the blending tools to sponge over the to go cup background.  To finish off the background piece I used memento tuxedo black ink to distress the edges and make them pop a little bit. Then I stamped the sentiments in memento tuxedo black ink. For the coffee sentiments I used Honey Bee Stamps "Perfect Blend" stamp set.  Also for the Happy Birthday sentiment I used Avery Elle's Birthday Bus stamp set.  I cut around the stamped sentiments and created simple banners with my scissors. After creating a card base with cream Micheal's Recollections card stock I took the shabby shutters distress ink and dabbed the mini cube directly onto the paper t

Jesus and Coffee are a perfect blend!

 Hello Hello, I have a coffee themed card to share with you.  I made this recently for a friend who diagnosed with Colon cancer.   They have a go fund me page if you want to read updates or help support them in this time of need.  Check it out here Go Fund Me I had a lot of fun coming up with this coffee sentiment.  I based it off of the song "Be Bold, Be strong for the Lord your God is with you"  I feel in a time of crisis like this is a great reminder to rely on Jesus and trust in his strength.   We don't know the outcome and we don't always know why things happen but we can have faith that Jesus will get us through. The to go cups are stamped in memento Tuxedo black ink and embossed with Simon Says Stamp clear embossing powder.  To emboss the to go cups I used the Marvey heat tool. The to go cups are from the Honey Bee Stamps "Coffee Break" stamp set.   To color the to go cups I used  spectrum noir markers.  BT7 and TB2 for the cups.  I used GB10 an

Together is our favorite place to be

Howdy! Today I’ve got a simple card I recently made for a friend who was waiting for baby #2 to arrive.   I sent it in the mail to brighten her day and share a bit of encouragement in this time. Her baby has arrived now and she’s enjoying snuggles just like this otter and her baby.  I used the digital stamp from Beth Duff Designs called “Life’s greatest blessing”  (Which is no longer available) This was a simple make. I printed the images as they were a digital stamp and colored them using Crayola pencil crayons.  Then I adhered it all together with my Scotch Advanced Tape Glider.  To finish off the card after that I used ground espresso distress ink to distress the edges of the card.  The card stock is from Micheal's Recollections collection. Thanks for stopping by today to see this super simple card. Have a great week!!   Affiliate Link Disclosure: I participate in various affiliate programs.

Happy Birthday Guitar!

Today I’ve got this fun birthday card to share with you.  I made this a little while ago but it didn’t make it to the blog so here it is now. First I stamped the image from My Favorite Things from the Pure Innocence “Heart Strings” stamp Set in memento tuxedo black ink. (This stamp set is retired, sorry) Then I colored it with my Spectrum noir markers. I used TN2, BP2, PL4, TN8, BT7 and true black to finish off the edges after I fussy cut out the image.   For the sentiment I used Simon Says Stamp it’s no secret stamp set. I embossed it with Simon Says Stamp clear embossing powder and heat set it with the Marvey heat tool.  I also outlined the sentiment border using PL4 from my Spectrum noir markers. For the embossed background I used the Cuttlebug by Provo craft embossing folder called spots and dots.  I used my Sizzix big shot machine for this. (This embossing folder is no longer aviable I linked to Kraisercraft distressed dots, which is similar) Then I distressed the

Be strong and courages (Beth Duff Designs)

Hello Hello, these last few weeks have gotten away from me and just gone too fast.  But I’m back today with a card using the stamp set seekers of justice by Beth Duff Designs . For the background I used a stencil I had in my collection that I picked up at Walmart in a pack.  I used distress inks for the background. The inks I used along with the distress ink blending tools were spun sugar and wilted violet.  I stamped the image in memento tuxedo black ink.  Then I coloured it with copic and Spectrum noir markers.  I used R24 Prawn and E21 soft sun (copics).  I used IG4,  PL5, PL2, CT4, TN7 and EB5 (Spectrum noir).  I fussy cut out the image and popped it up on using scotch foam tape. (I use the small rolls of scotch foam tape found at my local store but I linked to the big roll and also the Elmer's foam tape at Simon Says Stamp and For the sentiment I used the anti static powder tool and stamped on black card stock with memento tuxedo black ink.  The
