For my first card I created a castle home for the happy couple. I first ink blended a soft blue and green ink onto the background. I colored the images with Copic markers. Then I added some clouds with a pink lining from the paper pack.
I think pink clouds are so dreamy! When they say every cloud has a silver lining, clouds with a pink lining are one step above that! Lol. I stamped the Happily Ever After sentiment on one of the clouds.
I added the images with foam tape and created a cobble stone walkway using Nuvo Stone Drops. These are so dimensional and dry with a matte finish to look like stones!
This stamp set is so inspiring, I couldn’t resist featuring that cute little frog in the stamp set for ONE MORE card! I chose one of my favorite papers for the background, then added the frog and the Knight in Shining Armor to a circle die cut.
I added some solid paper to the left side of the card, and stamped the sentiment “You’re So Charming” onto one of the blue paper strips.
How many frogs have YOU had to kiss to find your Knight?!
I hope you enjoyed these projects today. I’ve really loved guesting and featuring these products!
Hello, it’s Stacy from Craftaholicmomma up today on the Scrapping for Less blog with a slimline card featuring the Chickie Baby stamp set by Sunny Studio Stamps and Distress Oxide Inks.
I stamped the images on Neenah 80# Classic Crest Smooth Solar White Card Stock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I used my Ohuhu Alcohol Markers to color them in. I then cut out the images with my Brother Scan n Cut.
I ink blended on a piece of Bristol Smooth Card Stock with Picked Raspberry and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Inks with a blender brush.
I sprinkled some water droplets on the background and dabbed it up with a paper towel to make it look distressed.
Then I stamped some of the grass images with the Twisted Citron. Popping the chicks up on foam squares and gluing the flowers in place finished off the card. The sentiment was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black Ink.
I stamped and the puppy images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copic Markers I used my Scan N Cut to cut the puppy images out.
I cut a panel of 110lb Neenah white cardstock to 5 1/2 X 4 inches, stamped and masked the scene stamps with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored the scene with Copic markers. I was not happy with the coloring at all and ended up cutting the panel down to 5 1/2 X about 3 inches.
If you want to make scene cards but are not sure about drawing your own the “Spring Scenes” stamp set is perfect. There are so many options with this one set for perfect scenes every time.
I used the dies to cut out a border on the top and bottom of a 5 1/2 X 4-inch panel on the 5 1/2 inch side. I ended up making the panel 5 1/2 by about 3 3/4 inches.
I stamped the sentiment with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink, on a circle I cut out of white cardstock. I used my Misti to position the stamps to fit. The “& puppy dog kisses” is all one piece and I thought it would be cute to have the sentiment follow the curve of the circle instead of cutting it down. By using a stamping platform I was able to get the entire sentiment positioned and stamp it all at one time.
I used a black gel pen for the one puppy’s nose, used a white gel pen for their eyes, and added just a little Glossy Accents to the puppy’s bow and nose!
I went a little crazy with all the layers of cute papers from the Spring Fling paper pack… but how could I not?! These papers are too cute!! This fun sketch is the current Mojo Monday sketch over at the Poetic Artistry blog. I love to check out the sketch blogs for inspiration!
I stamped the sweet girl holding the flower from the Spring Showers stamp set with Memento Tuxedo black ink on white card stock and then again on a post it note to mask my image. I blended a little Tumbled Glass and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide inks over the masked image. You may notice that the color seems a little smudged… that’s because I forgot to heat set the black ink. I still make mistakes after twenty plus years of cardmaking… lol! Anywho, it still looks okay so I removed the mask and colored the image with the following copic markers:
Skin ~ E000, E00, E21
Hair ~ Y21, YR12, YR14
Clothes ~ BV0000, BV01
Hair Clip/Flower ~ R81, R85, Y06, Y15
I adhered all the layers together, wrapping the cluster of layers with a little white baker’s twine. I then adhered the layers to the purple flower layer that I had adhered to a white card base. I popped up the main image and the sentiment with some foam squares to finish off this card. I think it turned out pretty cute… what do you think?
While I was playing with the papers and stamps making the first card, I had a fun idea for this second card. I had run across this sketch on the CAS(E) this Sketch blog and thought it would be cute to feature this adorable little girl playing in the rain. I stamped the girl and umbrella with Memento Tuxedo black ink and then colored them in with the following copic markers:
Skin/Mouth ~ E000, E00, E21, R14, N4
Hair ~ E35, E37
Clothes ~ C00, C1, R81, R83, R85
Umbrella ~ R81, R83, R85, BV0000, BV01
I created the background by stamping the Rain Showers stamp twice on a piece of white card stock with VersaMark watermark ink and then I heat embossed an ultra fine clear embossing powder. I then blended the Tumbled Glass and Mowed Lawn Oxide inks to create my sky and ground. I die cut the background with a circle die and then mat it with a scalloped circle that I had die cut from another piece of white card stock.
I couldn’t find quite the right blue card stock for my card base so I cut one of the papers from the Spring Fling paper pack. Even though it’s mostly covered by the next layer of papers… I wanted that blue layer to help it all pop. I then adhered the three strips of patterned paper to a white piece of card stock measuring 4-1/8 x 5-3/8″. I adhered that layer to the card and then popped up the main image with foam squares. I stamped the sentiment on a scrap of white card stock and then mat it on the same blue patterned paper I used on the base. To finish off the card, I added a few Sea Breeze Jewel drops… I like the translucent look to these drops.
In my mind, the clouds are literally showering hearts… I just love how quick this fun card came together! I stamped the clouds from the adorable Spring Showers stamp set with Memento Tuxedo black ink in my Stamp Platform so I’d get a beautiful crisp stamped image.
I then colored the clouds very simply with BV0000, BV01, and the Colorless Blender copic markers. I fussy cut the clouds and set them aside. I trimmed my patterned paper to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ and then lined up my stitched rectangle die in the center securing it with some purple tape. I ran it through my Big Shot and then mat the rainbow polka dot hearts paper on a 3-3/8 x 4-5/8″ piece of white card stock. I was going to adhere that layer back onto the rainbow polka dot hearts paper, but when I flipped it over I saw the ombre rainbow paper side and decided to use this side.
I adhered the papers to the card using a liquid glue and then stamped the sentiment. I used a smaller rectangle die to die cut the sentiment and then trimmed off the extra from the left side. I adhered the sentiment to the card and then adhered the clouds.
I just love how sweet this card turned out and it was really so quick to make!! Be sure to stop by the SFL shop and see all the fabulous Sunny Studio Stamps products available… so many wonderful stamps, dies and papers!!
I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored the images super quick with Copic Markers and used my Scan N Cut to cut the images out, I used the dies to cut out ric rac and border the back panel, I cut a circle using a stitched circle die, and then I stamped the sentiment with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink, added a few enamel dots and added just a little of the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen to the puppy’s bow!
Hello, it’s Stacy here from Craftaholicmomma up today on the Scrapping for Less blog with a super cute card featuring several products from Sunny Studio Stamps’ newest release. You can find these products at Scrappingforless.com.
I used the Cruising Critters stamp set, the Spring Sunburst 6×6 paper pad and the Heartstring Border Dies to create my card. After stamping my image with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink I colored the image with my Ohuhu Alcohol Markers (Amazon). I die cut a heart border and mounted the image panel onto the striped pattern paper with Gina K Designs Foam Adhesive. The body of the vehicle was stamped on pattern paper and fussy cut so that I could paper piece it in place.
I used a Molotow Chrome Marker (Amazon) to color in the shiny chrome parts of the vehicle like the fenders on the wheel wells and the hub caps.
The sentiment was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink.
We have a couple of pinks, along with white, red, and even a reddish brown. I think these colors work perfectly for a Valentine’s Color Challenge! I hope you do too and that you can find some time to play along with us in the Scrapping for Less: Show & Share group on Facebook.
So… I thought it would be fun to use the Winter Fairies stamp set for a Valentine’s card… kind of show how versatile this set can be!! It doesn’t have to be just for a wintry card or Christmas card… the sweet fairies combined with some Valentine’s colors, stenciled hearts, and a perfect sentiment – BAM! I have a sweet Valentine’s card ready for my stash!
To start, I stamped the fairy with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto white card stock and colored her in with the following copic markers:
I then fussy cut her out (cutting off the star at the top of her wand) and cleaned up the edges with a Memento Tuxedo black marker. I set the fairy aside and grabbed a piece of Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor paper. I ink smooshed some Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide inks. I used my Heat Tool to dry the panel and then applied some Scarlet Glitter Glaze from Brutus Monroe with a spatula over the Tim Holtz Hearts Mini Layering Stencil Set #6. I also applied some of the same glaze over the stencil onto a scrap piece of white card stock. I set it aside to dry.
While that was drying, I realized that I had forgotten about the brown in the color combination… oops! I mean, sure there’s a bit in her hair, but I wanted it in the background too so once the glitter glaze was dry I smooshed some Vintage Photo Distress Oxide inks on the panel. I also used my water pen to move the ink around a bit since the raised glittery hearts seemed to resist the ink. I’ll be honest… at this point, I tossed the panel in the trash. I did not like how it turned out. So I made another one… and somehow that one was worse!! Lol… I pulled the first panel out of the trash and gave it another look and decided it wasn’t terrible. I left both panels on my desk and called it a day… the next morning, I decided to go with the first panel. Fresh eyes can give you that new perspective on your creations!! I actually like the extra dimension the brown ink smooshes give to the card!
I trimmed down my panel to 3-7/8 x 5-1/8″ and adhered it to a Real Red mat measuring 4 x 5-1/4″. I then adhered that to a Passionate Pink card front measuring 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ and adhered the entire card front to a white card base. I popped up the fairy using foam squares and then popped up the fussy cut glitter glazed heart that I had created on the scrap piece of white card stock to take the place of the star on the fairies wand. To finish off the card, I stamped the Happy Valentine’s Day sentiment from the Sentiments of the Heart stamp set that was included in the Banana Split subscription of the December 2019 Sending Love card kit with VersaMark watermark ink and heat embossed an ultra fine white embossing powder. I die cut the sentiment with my go-to banners die and popped it up on the card. I’m so happy with how this card turned out! I hope you like it too!
