Love from above

Angel card is here! I made this slider card by using Mamaelephant older released stamp set called Love from above.  I got this stamp at Scrapbook Expo last year. I am always an Mamaelephant fan but somehow I didn’t even pay attention to this set. When I saw it, I knew I wanted to own it badly.

1. I cut the slider card template from my Silhouette machine and assembled all the pieces such as front shadow box dimension.

2. I ink blended the background slightly by using Tim Holtz distress ink in Tumble glass color.

3. I stamped all stamp images on Neenah Solar white paper by using memento ink in coco rich.

4. I colored the images with Copic markers and fussy cut them.

5. Adhered them on the card base by using 3d dimension foam tape or craft glue.

Wish Big!

I’ve had some wonderful Lawn Fawn stamps and dies for quite some time but I had no chance to use them. I pulled them out and started my experiment. One of reasons that I love Lawn Fawn products is they always release new things to coordinate what you’ve already had at home. I had Stitched Hillside Pop-up die for a while. Then they came out with Flower Hillside pop-up add-on to match it. They are so considerate! Believe or not, It took me almost 3 hours to finish this card. It will take a little longer to get my crafting groove back. I can feel that I am on the right path though.

  1. Cut out all the background pieces, distressed them using Tim Holtz Distress inks. Sprinkle water on the distressed surface to create special effects.
  2. Stamped images from Elphie Selfie Stamp set with Memento Black ink, and colored with Copic Markers
  3. Assemble all the prepared pieces together using Craft glue dots.
  4. I purposely make the front of the card simple so It will be a surprise when receiver opens it.

Sweety Fruity

Summer time is pretty much here. I have home grown strawberries to share and I also like to make my own lemonade or limeade. Why don’t I make some tags with my homemade goodies to our nice neighbors?! I came up with this idea and straightly dive in the process. I am using Your next stamps Jam-Packed full of fun stamp set.

1.   I cut out the tags and essentials using My favorite things Tag builder blueprints 5 with Neenah Solar White 80lbs cardstock.

2.  To prepare the background, there are 3 ways to do it. I stamp the images with simple copick coloring, cover the whole background with copic coloring or blend distress ink color.

3.  Since they are shaker tags, of course I add my sequins stash. I don’t have a lot sequins color options so they are my best choice. Gosh, does that means I need to hoard the sequins     too? My drawers are very full!

4.  Assemble the tags with glue and foam tape.

5.  Decorate the top of tag with some more stamped images, sentiments or leave it as it is.

6. Attach color coordinating baker’s twines to finish the tags

Your Next Stamp Sketch Challenge #38

Hello my deer! I’ve been thinking about making this scene for a few days but I had no time to create. I quickly put everything together before Mae get off school. I mainly used watercoloring and distress inking techniques. This card can be a Valentine’s Day card or a card for a friend. There are a lot of potential with “Oh my deer”  this sentiment.

Sisters’ Love

In the strawberry world, two bunny sisters like to play with each other….

When I experiment a new background, I always do a tryout for colors and textures to make sure it works. I ended up having two backgrounds because tryout and final all turned out good. Then why not use them?!
