Caffeinated Dino- 1 Stamp set, 2 ways Collab with Jessica Shier

I've got a fun card today using the caffeinated dino from the Rabbit Hole Designs.  Of course there is a video over on my YouTube Channel where you can watch the process.  Today's video is also a collab with Jessica Shier she did a video over on her channel too. We both used the same stamp set and did a summer theme. We came up with two different cards.

I started off by using the sixxiz sidekick machine to cut out some grass using the My favorite things "Grassy edges" die.  Then I used the Big shot machine to cut out the sun rays embossed background using a Tim Holtz embossing folder and my big shot machine.

Next I adhered the embossed background to the card base with the Scotch advanced tape glider. I then adhered the grass with the Xyron sticker maker over the embossed sun rays.

At this point I was ready to stamp and color the dino. I stamped it in memento tuxedo black ink and colored it in spectrum noir markers.  The colors I used were CG1, JG6, TB3, CT3, TN8 and…

Recycle with me #13 Oreo cookie packaging recycle

Hello There, it's been awhile since I did a recycle with me card project for you.  Today I've got 3 fun cards to share with you using the packaging from Oreo cookies.  I created a grad card and 2 fun coffee, cookie and cinnamon bun themed cards.

For the first card I used Honey bee stamps "Coffee Break" stamp set and stamped the to go cup in memento tuxedo black ink.  Then I colored the to go cup in with spectrum noir markers.  I used TN8,  BG4 and OR1.  I then used various pieces from the Oreo cookie packaging and glued it down on the card.  Then for the background  I used vintage photo distress oxide ink along with the Dollarama make up brush to blend the ink onto the card base.  For the sentiment I used the stamp set from Honey Bee Stamps called "Perfect Blend".

For the second card I created a grad card. I used broken china distress oxide ink along with the Dollarama make up brush.   I glued the word Oreo on top of the card and then stamped the sentiment…

Lawn Fawn Penguin Happy Birthday (Music Themed) Husband takes over the voiceover on YouTube

Hello There, I've got a fun Birthday card for you today. Also I switched things up over on my YouTube channel and got my husband to do the voice over. We did this for a few reasons. One it's my birthday, he's a guitar player and loved this card I created and I created this card for our work music recital for a raffle prize.

For today's card I used Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink and Broken China Distress Oxide ink to blend a background on the card base.  I used the Dollarama make up brush to blend these two colors together. 

Then I was ready to stamp the penguin from Lawn Fawn's Here we go a waddling stamp set.  So this is a Christmas set. Though I wanted to see it as a non Christmas penguin.  I used Memento Tuxedo black in and only put ink on the penguin and not his Christmas hat.  I stamped it on the paper and started coloring with my spectrum noir markers.   With the markers I just drew in the top of his head where the hat would of been.  For the Colors I used…

The Rabbit Hole Designs “Caffeinated Fox” Dad Fuel

Hello hello, I’ve got a fun card for you today. I made this card for a friend who’s about to become a dad for the first time. This would also make a great Father’s Day Card or birthday card for Dad.

After cutting the card base which is from Micheal's Recollections card stock.  I stamped the couch from the Beth Duff Designs/Unity stamp co "Warmth of Home".  I used normal scotch tape to cover the Christmas Tree and reindeer on the pillow to make it a everyday pillow instead of a Christmas pillow.  Then I inked up the stamp in memento tuxedo black ink. I made sure to pull off the scotch tape on the pillows before stamping it onto the card base. If you don't remove the tape masking off the designs on the pillows you will just get a blob instead of a plain pillow.  To remove the tape I used some tweezers.

I also stamped the couch on some Inkadinkadoo  masking paper and cut it out. Then I peeled off the sticky back and placed it over the couch. So I could start working o…
