Well I really wanted to use this beautiful Flamingo this time. So I stamped the Flamingo and the wing from the New Vacation Stamp Set onto white cardstock with black ink. I colored them in with my Copic Markers. Next, I cut them out with the Vacation Sweet Cuts. I added the wing with a little bit of foam tape. I also used a pink Prismacolor Colored Pencil for the shadows. I was going to make a tag well I kinda did. I cut out the Sweet Cuts Tag with some white cardstock. I ink blended it with a blue, pink, and peach colored ink for a fun sunset water background. I used the waves stamped image from the New Another Day in Paradise to stamp in Uncharted Mariner Distress ink onto my tag.

I cut out some kraft cardstock and ink blended it with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide ink. I stamped the waves in Uncharted Mariner Distress ink to make a full and fun background. I stamped my sentiment onto my tag with Uncharted Mariner Distress ink. I glued my Flamingo to my tag. I then added some clouds from Another Day in Paradise, one with foam and the other 2 with liquid glue. I added my tag with foam tape and and added my panel to a A2 card base. I used a black Gelly Roll pen for the eye, feet, and nose of the Flamingo. I flickered some Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink Spray and Picket Fence Distress Spray Stain to my card carefully without getting my Flamingo. That finishes my card I hope you like it!

When I was done with my coloring I cut it out with the Stay Cool Coordinating dies.

I used the Surfs Up Stencil from A Colorful Life Designs for my background. I ink blended it on Hammermill cardstock with Pinkfresh Studio Sunshine ink and Mermaid Lagoon distress Oxide ink. I then cut out my ink blended cardstock with the Pink and Main Mod Stitched Rectangle Dies using the largest die. I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment from the Stay Cool Stamp Set. I cut it out with the coordinating die. I love that the sentiments have coordinating dies. I layered the sentiment on black cardstock for a little depth.

I started out with Fabriano Hot Pressed cardstock. I stamped and heat embossed these beautiful Palm Trees from the New Vacation Stamp Set so that I could water color using my Karin Brush Markers. I place ink onto a stamp block and use a paint brush to add water and ink to my stamped image. I had a lot of fun coloring them. I then used the coordinating Vacation Sweet Cuts to cut them out. I made my background using a googled image I had seen with Palm Trees. I just Bristol Smooth cardstock and my Karin markers to doodle and blend with water and a paint brush. I added some gold paint splatters for fun. I cut my panel down and layered it with black cardstock. I added my background layers to a A2 card base.

I placed my card base into my Misti and stamped and heat embossed my sentiment from Another Day in Paradise. They are 2 separate sentiments that I put together. Super Easy. Lastly, I added a sun and cloud using the dies from Another Day in Paradise Sweet Cuts. I then glued my Palm Trees and added some clear liquid drops. I hope you like it.

Meow Cat

Hello everyone! I hope you are doing well. I have some cards I made using the New Meow Cat stencil that were super easy to make using A Colorful Life Designs August 2022 Release. I will have supplies and a coupon code down below for you!

I chose to do two cards just with different ink colors. On this card, I used Lunch Bag cardstock from Brutus Monroe with Bubblegum ink. I ink blended it with my large blending brush. When I was done ink blending I used a retired stitched rectangle die set from My Creative Time to cut it out. I then used the largest scalloped rectangle die to cut out pink cardstock to layer my stenciled background. I then glued everything to a A2 card base. I flicked some Metallic paint in Silver and Unicorn from LH Colors with my paint brush onto my panel and added some Soft Pink liquid drops to finish my card.

On this card I did the same except I used Seafoam ink and added some Sky blue liquid drops to match this panel. I felt I didn’t need a sentiment and I could always stamp inside when ready to gift. I hope you like my cards. Use my coupon code VonFan10 to save 10% off your purchase of stencils. Check out the Newest Release here.

Hi everyone! I hope your having a great day. I have a Sweet card to share that I made for Doodles Paper Playground for my Guest Design Month. I will have details and supplies listed down be low for you.

Do you love Neapolitan Ice Cream? I do. Ever since I was a little girl. I used Sparkle Blends Neapolitan for my card and I knew I would have to do a traditional Ice Cream card. I first used a embossing folder stamp and die set from Sizzix with white cardstock for my background panel. I cut it to be A2 size before running it through my Spellbinders Platinum machine. I began cutting out my scoops, cherry, and cone from My Creative Time Retired Set You Make Life Sweet Stamp and Die Set. It is a older set from my stash. I used colored cardstock from my stash.

I ink blended the chocolate pieces to look darker with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink and the Cherry with Pinkfresh Studio Berrylicious ink. I glued my scoops to my cone and added it to my panel with foam tape. On pink cardstock, I stamped my sentiment from the same set by My Creative Time. I cut it into a fish tail banner and added it to my panel with foam tape. I ink blended pieces of my panel, Ice Cream Cone, and sentiment with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink and my blending tool. I love the Neapolitan Sparkle Blends so much I placed a bunch on my card. My panel was added to a A2 card base. I hope you like it. It was so much fun to make and I need one of these treats to enjoy.

A Colorful Life Designs August 2022 Release

Hello. Happy August. I hope you are doing well. I’m super excited for the New Release today. 16 NEW Designs. So much fun! I have a few cards to share using the New Lover Boy Stencil and Furry Stencil from A Colorful Life Designs August 2022 Release. I will have supplies, a video, and a coupon down below for you!

Here is the first card I made. I think these dogs are so cute from the New Lover Boy Stencil. I ink blended using Gina K Designs Honey Mustard ink on Hammermill cardstock. When I was done ink blending, I flickered some gold paint using Starry Colors from Gansai Tambi. I cut my cardstock to be A2 size. I added it to a A2 card base. I stamped my Taylored Expressions Woof sentiments onto kraft cardstock and cut them out with the coordinating die. I added 2 strips with foam strips to my card front. I added sequins to match, super easy.

On this card I ink blended the dogs with black ink on Hammermill cardstock. I just wanted to do a border of them for a different look. I chose to color their bows and hearts with Copic markers. I used the New Furry Stencil for my sentiment using black ink. I cut out my cardstock to be A2 size and added it to a A2 card base. I inked around the edges with my blending brush. I added some heart enamel stickers to finish this card.

I chose to make another card just because I love this stencil. I ink blended on Hammermill cardstock with Aspen, Espresso, and Sunshine ink. I alternated my inks to have all 3 shown. I love this color combo, not my typical combo. I flickered some metallic paint splatters using LHColors in Gold and Limeade over my panel for a fun look.

I cut my cardstock with a Taylored Expressions Die. It was bigger than an A2 panel so I placed my die over it to cut it to the right size. I glued my panel to a A2 card base. I then added a white heat embossed sentiment strip from Taylored Expressions Woof Stamp and added it with foam tape. I then placed some sequins from Doodles Paper Playground Sparkle Blends in Sunflower. That finishes my cards. I hope you like them.

I used the Balloons Stencil on a whole sheet of Hammermill cardstock from A Colorful Life Designs. I ink blended with Rose Water and Macaron ink to match my Hamsters. I flickered some Metallic paint over my ink blended panels for fun. I would position my stencil so that I could easily make 2 Slimline cards with it. I used inks Rose Water, Macaron, and Dried Fig inks with Pinkfresh Studio Brushed sentiments Stamp and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

Embossed Butterfly Cards and Matching Envelopes

Hello everyone! I have some cards and matching envelopes I made using Embossing Folders and Butterfly coordinating dies. I will have details and and supplies listed down below.

I played with Embossing Folders from Simon Say Stamp for my cards today. On, this card I used Magnolia Branches and the Graceful Butterfly Set. I love how the Graceful Butterfly Set comes with cutting dies. I would cut out my butterfly pieces with white cardstock. I would Spray them with a little bit of water and run them with the Graceful Butterfly embossing folder through my die cutting machine. I used my Simon Says Stamp Detail brushes with Catherine Pooler Chiffon ink, Catherine Pooler Lemon Whip, Twilight Simon Says Stamp Pawsitively Saturated ink, and Mint from Pinkfresh Studio. I ran my white cardstock A2 size through my diecutting machine with the Magnolia Branches Embossing folder. I ink blended it to match my butterflies.

I added my panel to a A2 card base and added a butterfly with foam tape and glued the one with liquid glue. I added a silver foil black sentiment strip from my stash with a foam strip. Lastly, I added clear sequins and embossed a envelope to match.

On this card I used the Geometric Lattice Embossing Folder with the Graceful Butterfly Set. I did the same thing cut the butterflies first, spray them with water, and emboss them with the Graceful Butterfly set. I used inks Bubblegum and Morning from Simon Says Stamp Pawsitively Saturated inks. I also used some Catherine Pooler Grape Crush. I used my detailed brushes to get in the Nooks and Crannies. I ran my white cardstock A2 size through my embossing folder-Geometric Lattice as well as a envelope.

I added my butterflies with liquid glue and my foiled sentiment strips with foam tape. I added clear sequins and added my panel to a A2 card base.

On this card I used the Magnolia Branches again with the Graceful Butterfly Set. After running my butterflies through the embossing folder I ink blended lightly with Bubblegum and Morning ink and Pinkfresh Studio Mint ink for the leaves. I ink blended my embossed matching panel to match. I thought this one looked good with a white embossed envelope. I added a foiled sentiment on glossy white cardstock sentiment with foam strips onto my panel. I molded my butterflies a little to have some more dimension before gluing them. I then added some clear sequins before adding it to a A2 card base.

On my last card I used my leftover ink blended butterflies. I glued them to a white Geometric Lattice A2 panel and added my gold foiled sentiment strip with a foam strip. I added my panel to a A2 card base and added clear sequins. I hope you like my card sets. Which one is your favorite? I ad fun making all of them.

As always I have so much fun making cards with stencils. The Possibilities are endless and this month I used my gel press for a lot of my projects for .

You’re The Best

Hello everyone! I hope your doing great. I have another card for My Guest Design at Doodles Paper Playground. I will have details down below for you!

I had to do another shaker card. A Lemon and Blueberries Shaker Card. So I chose this New Lemon Die that I purchased called Lemon Zest from Spellbinders. I used Circle dies from Waffle Flower Crafts for my Blueberries. My motivation came from a Cosmetic Bag that I had seen at Marshalls while shopping with my Crafty Friend Tina. I did my card from memory so I left a few things out like strawberries but that’s okay maybe next time I can recreate it better. I used Hammermill cardstock to ink blend my background pink like the Cosmetic Bag using Guava from Simon Says Stamp Pawsitively Saturated ink. I cut out my background with a stitched A2 rectangle. I ink blended the rest of my Hammermill cardstock with inks using Catherine Pooler Chiffon, Lawn Fawn Clover, Pinkfresh Studio Sunshine, Lawn Fawn Freshly Cut Grass, and Simon Says Stamp Twilight Pawsitively Saturated ink.

I ran the dies on the ink blended areas to retrieve all the die-cuts needed for this card.

I glued all my die-cuts together and glued my lemons and blueberries onto my pink ink blended A2 panel. I used a A2 clear card sleeve to make my shaker pouch. I used a tape runner to fold my sleeve tight around my card. I trimmed a little off the top and begin placing Lemonade Sparkle Blends into it. I placed a few blue and green sequins from Twilight Meadow Sparkle Blends to match my leaves and Blueberries. I love the clay pieces and the blends, they are just fabulous. I used my tape runner to secure my shaker pouch. I then added my shaker panel to a A2 card base. I added a gold foil strip sentiment from my stash and that finishes my card. I hope you like it.

Smile Breathe and go Slowly

Hello everyone!! I have a fun card for you today. I hope your having a great day. I used the Striped Hexagon Stencil from A Colorful Life Designs July 2022 Release. As always I will have supplies and a coupon code for you down below.

I first started out with some white cardstock, gel press, brayer, inks, and of course my Stencil. I used some yellow and black ink for my inks on my gel press. My process is to use my Misti and lay my gel press in it. I apply inks and use my brayer to glide it onto my gel press. I lay my stencil down while I glide my brayer in upwards and downwards strokes. I grab my cardstock and lift my stencil off and press my cardstock onto my gel press. I did the same process 2-3 times to get the look I was happy with. I cut out my panel with a Stitched A2 rectangle die.

I stamped these cut Bees from Honey Bee Stamps with black ink and colored them in with my Copic Markers. I cut them out with the coordinating dies. I applied them to my panel with foam tape. I used a pre-made Ephemera foiled sentiment pack that was free from Pinkfresh Studio. I also applied the sentiment with foam tape.

Be Creative

Hello everyone! I hope you are doing well. I’m so excited to be Guest Designing this month and next month for Doodles Paper Playground. I love their Sparkle Blends. I will have supplies listed down below for you.

I wanted to make a shaker card because the Sparkle Blends are so much fun to work with. This one that I used is called I Love The 80’s. So fun. I’m an 80’s Baby Yay. I first used Hammermill cardstock and ink blended the Paint Splatter Background Stencil from Lawn Fawn using Catherine Pooler ink Pucker Up, Catherine Pooler ink Orange Twist, Lawn Fawn ink Freshly Cut Grass, Gina K Designs Electro Pop Neon Ink Blaring Blue, and Pinkfresh Studio ink Sunshine Chiffon. I cut out my panel with a A2 Stitched Rectangle die.

I cut out the Canvas and Easel and Art Supplies dies using white cardstock. I ink blended them to match. I used the large Paint Splatter die to make my shaker window with the Canvas Die-cut. I also used a sparkle stamp image from the Just Add Glitter stamp set using Pucker Up ink. I layered my shaker window with packaged Acetate and foam. Next, I placed my Sparkle Blend I Love the 80’s into my shaker and sealed it up using my Sparkle image background. I glued it to my easel. I glued everything to a A2 card base. I had this fox colored and ready in my stash from Butterfly Kisses Flip Flop Stamp and Die Set. I just popped up my critter and added a few Sparkle Blends sequins to my card. My sentiments were stamped with black and Pucker Up ink from the Just Add Glitter stamp. That finishes up my card, I hope you like it.

Sending Happy Thoughts!

Hello everyone! I hope you are feeling great today. I have a card using the Striped Balls Stencil from A Colorful Life Designs July 2022 Release. I will have supplies listed as well as a Coupon Code for you down below!

Isn’t this a fun stencil? I used my gel plate again for this one. I applied Rose Quartz and Laid Back Lilac paint from Dylusions onto my gel plate and laid my stencil down.

I was subtle so when it was dry I ink blended with Flirty Fuchsia ink from Catherine Pooler using my stencil and blending brush.

Next, I cut out my panel out with a A2 rectangle die and glued it to my A2 card base. I added a sentiment from a Simon Says Stamp Stamp and Die Set that I had premade already in my stash.

Hello everyone! I have a card today using a New Stencil called Even Pairing Stencil from A Colorful Life Designs July 2022 Release. I will have supplies and a coupon code for you down below.

I love this New Even Pairing stencil. It is so neutral, so it will look great with anything you choose. I wanted to use it with foil. I placed my stencil over some A2 purple cardstock from my stash with Transfer Duo Paste and then let it dry over night. I then used Silver foil and ran it through my Spellbinders Platinum Machine.

I had this Pinkfresh Studio Celebrate Foiled Sentiment in my foil stash. I just layered it with another die-cut using the coordinating die and white cardstock. I also had a leaf die-cut in my stash from Simon Says Stamp that I had used with Mica Distress Spray in Brushed Pewter. I glued everything to a A2 card base using liquid glue. Lastly, I added some Silver Metallic Matte Pearls from Pinkfresh Studio. I hope you like my card for today. It was a lot of fun.

Geo Framework Stencil and a Gel Press

Hello everyone! I hope you are doing well. I have some cards using the New Geo Framework Stencil from A Colorful Life Designs July 2022 Release and my Gel Press. I will have supplies and a coupon code down below for you.

On this card I started out placing my 5×7 Gel Press in in my Misti. I placed some Dylusions Paints in colors Rose Quartz and Island Parrot. I placed small drops and used my Brayer up and down before placing my stencil onto my paint. I used my brayer again and lifted my stencil to place my white cardstock over it. I got this cool print. I then ink blended over this print when dried with Catherine Pooler Lime Rickey dye ink with a Blending brush. I cut out my panel with a A2 Rectangle die. I added a premade gold foiled sentiment and some sequins. My panel was then added to a A2 card base.

Summer Cards using Waffle Flower Crafts Tropical Card Kit

Hello everyone! I hope you are doing great today. I am so happy to be back crafting. We visited family and that was nice and it can be tiring. I was away from my craft room so I was eager to get back. I have some Summer Cards using a Beautiful Kit from Waffle Flower Crafts called the Tropical Kit by Galine Filippenko. I was so lucky to have won this kit. I will have supplies listed down below for you!

I love crafts that involve Summer and Tropical Themes.

This is the first card I made. I first cut out all the pieces to put my cute birds together. I then cut out some Tropical Leaves and flowers. This kit comes with plain, gold glitter, and pattern paper. The Gray cardstock paper is from my stash.

I stamped and Heat embossed my sentiment from the stamp set included with Versafine Black Onynx ink and Hero Arts Clear Embossing Powder on gray cardstock. I put my card together onto a A2 card base. I embellished with some Stardust Enamel Dots from my stash.

I decided to make a shaker card since this kit comes with Satin Rainbow Confetti embellishments. I used a Circle die set from Waffle Flower Crafts to cut out a circle in my green cardstock. I did the same with my green foam. I used some packaging acetate for my window. This kit does come with circle shaker covers and I will have to use them next time. I used my powder tool and Adhesive Permanent tape Runner to put my shaker together. I layered it on another pattern paper from the kit.

I stamped and heat embossed a different sentiment on gray cardstock. I cut it to fit better using my paper trimmer. I glued my bird with leaves and flowers to my card front. My panel was added to a A2 card base. I embellished with a few confetti. I hope you like my fist 2 cards using the Beautiful Tropical Kit.

Happy Birthday

Hello everyone! I hope you are doing so well today. I have a fun Birthday Card to share using the New Megaphones Stencil from A Colorful Life Designs July 2022 Release. I will have supplies and a coupon code for you down below.

I started out with subtle sparkle pink cardstock from my stash. The New Megaphones Stencil is a 6×9 stencil with a few Megaphones on it. I chose to use one of them for a Birthday Cone Hat. My daughter thought it could be a Unicorn horn. She said it just needs ears. What do you think? I applied some Fuchsia Stencil Butter spreading it out with a spatula. I then let it dry.

I then used my Tim Holtz Paper Deckle Trimmer to rim around it for a pretty look. I cut out a bunch of flowers with white cardstock using a Spellbinders die set. I tied some matching pink hemp twine into a bow and added that to the top of my card. The word sentiment I had in my sentiment stash box that I added to my panel. Lastly, I added some Sparkle Blends Flutter By Butterfly from Doodles Paper Playground to my flower centers and for decoration. I hope you like it!

Whirl Around

Hello everyone! Welcome to A Colorful Life Designs July 2022 Release. I have a video on cards I have made with the New Whirl Around Stencil. I will have a Video, Supplies, and a coupon code listed down below for you!

Isn’t this stencil beautiful? I used my Gel Press Printing Plate for my cards. I’m a newbie at using the Gel Press but I’m happy with these backgrounds. I like using this gel plate for fun backgrounds and it is really easy. I used white cardstock with Stampin’ Up ink in Perfect Plum. First, I placed my Gel Press in my Misti, and inked up my Gel press with the Perfect Plum ink. I laid the New Whirl Around Stencil on the ink and begin using my Ranger Brayer to glide the ink back and forth. I lifted the stencil and and placed my cardstock over it and you get a beautiful background.

I did do this several times and each print looks different which I like. You can even do a few colors. You can add a stamped image. The possibilities are endless.

I cut out my backgrounds with A2 dies using a stitched and non stitched rectangle dies. I used Taylored Expressions You’re The Best Mini Strips in a blue ink that I had already done previously in my stash. On my video I used Pinkfresh Studio Candy Violet. These mini strips stamps are a lot of fun because you have the die to cut them all out. My mini strips are added with foam strips. I glued my panels to A2 card bases. Lastly, I used Soapy Bubbles sequins from Trinity Stamps.

4th of July Shaker Cards

Hello everyone! I hope you are doing great. I have some 4Th of July shaker cards today using some easy but fun products. I have a video down below for you and I will have supplies listed.

I thought it would be fun to use these Waffle Flower Crafts Star Shaker Covers. You get 3 in a pack. First thing I did was grab a white panel A2 cardstock. I placed my stitched fireworks on it and ran it through my Spellbinders Platinum Machine. I then turned the fireworks die around to do the other side. If yours are not connected it is easy to arrange them the way you want to get a fun fireworks background. Next I ink blended my panel Red, White, and Blue using Festive Berries Distress Oxide ink and the New Uncharted Mariner Distress Oxide ink. I then placed my Land That I Love Ephemera off to the ends of my panel and a banner in the center. I cut the excess pieces off.

I glued my panel onto a A2 card base. I used double sided adhesive 1/8 inch tape around my star. I added a mixture of Doodles Paper Playground Stars and Stripes Sparkle Blends and Buttons Galore Fireworks for my shaker elements. They are really festive.

I added my shaker star cover and shake shake shake so cute. I added a banner sentiment from the ephemera with foam strips. Lastly, I added a few clay star embellishments to my card front.

Here are the 3 cards I made using the Waffle Flower Crafts Puffy shaker Star Covers and Doodlebug Land That I Love Ephemera. So much fun and I hope you will give it a try. I recommend it for fun easy shaker cards. I will be linking my card to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge-Anything Goes.

I hope Your Day Is Fantastic…

Hello everyone! I hope your doing great today. I have a fun card using a really cute stamp set from Colorado Craft Company called Mouse House that I have been wanting to use for awhile now. I will have supplies listed down below for you!

I first started out stamping images from stamp set with Versafine Tuxedo Black ink on Bristol Smooth Cardstock using my Misti Stamping Platform. I used a water brush but empty so that I could control the water with my Arteza Real Brush Pens. I kept applying layers to achieve the look that I was happy with. I then cut out the images with the coordinating dies. The dies are so cute because they cut out the windows and leave the door hinged. So clever.

I found some pattern paper in my stash and cut it out with a A2 rectangle die. I water colored some cardstock with a yellow and Red Arteza marker to glue in the inside of the windows and door.

I glued everything to a A2 card base. I stamped a sentiment on white cardstock from the stamp set with Versafine ink and cut it with my paper trimmer. I just love that cute mouse inside of the door! I added some sequins Citrus Tornado Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground and that finishes off my card. I hope you like it. It was so much fun and relaxing to make.

I will be linking my card up to the Color Throwdown Challenge #698. I really love the colors for this month.

Birthday Blessings

Hello everyone! I hope you are feeling great today! I have a round shaped card today using a New Stencil from A Colorful Life Designs June Release called Layered Floating Stars. I will have a coupon and supplies listed down below for you.

I love shaped cards and I thought this would be a fun Birthday Card. This stencil set comes with 2 stencils. Each stencil is labeled 1 and 2. It would be great for Independence Day Cards as well. I started out with white Hammermill cardstock. I used 4 inks for this card. You can use 1 ink and that would be pretty too. I began ink blending using stencil 1 which is the big stars first. I randomly used inks Simon Says Stamp Melon, Aspen, and Seafoam. I then used layering stencil 2 which are the small stars with Bubblegum ink.

I cut out my ink blended background using the largest circle die from Mama Elephant’s Stacked Circles. I made a card base just cutting out another 2 large Circles from the same die with heavier cardstock. I scored and added my ink blended panel. I used a sentiment already premade and cut out with Taylored Expressions Birthday Stamp and Coordinating Asymmetrical Die. Lastly, I added some sequins from Go Bananas by Doodles Paper Playground. This month has been a fun collaboration. Use my code VonFan10 to save 10% off your purchase of stencils. Check out the Newest Release here

Make Today Amazing!

Hello everyone!! I hope you are doing well, hopefully today is Amazing for you. I have a card using this gorgeous Mermaid from the current My Monthly Hero Kit. I will have supplies listed down below for you!

I love this mermaid from the kit and I could not wait to color her up. I stamped her onto white heavy weight cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored her with my Copic Markers. I wanted a fun card so I gave her purple hair. After all mermaids are magical right? I colored her with BG Markers and V Markers. I love her fin, it’s beautiful. I cut her out with the coordinating dies. I colored up a Jellyfish and some seaweed but they didn’t fit my design for this panel so next time I will use those.

I made my background using white cardstock and the Shimmering Sea Foil Plate from Trinity Stamps. I used Glimmer Cobalt blue Foil and my Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foiling System. I love foil. I then ink blended with Lawn Fawn Moonstone Dye ink and Catherine Pooler Cummerbund dye ink. I cut out my background using Hero Arts Nested Rectangles using second to the largest die.

I placed my panel into my Misti Stamping Platform and stamped a sentiment from Tim Holtz Noteworthy using Versafine Clair Nocturne ink. I added my mermaid with foam tape and added some clear bubbles from Doodles Paper Playground. My panel was then added to my A2 card base with liquid glue. I added some clear glaze and that finishes off this magical card. I hope like it. I will be linking it to the Hero Arts Stay Crafty with a Bog Named Hero June Challenge-By The Sea.

Independence Day Cards

Hi everyone! I hope you are doing well. I have some Independence Day cards to share with you using a New Stencil from A Colorful Life Designs June 2022 Release and Sparkle Blends from Collaboration with Doodles paper Playground. I will have Supplies and a coupon listed at the end of of this post.

On these cards I used the New Flag Heart Stencil with Sparkle Blends Twilight Meadow and a older Blend called Old St. Nick,

I used both the negative and positive stencil pieces for this card. I started out with some Arches Cold Press cardstock. I laid my heart stencil over my cardstock and I ink blended with some dye inks Flame and Dress Blues from Catherine Pooler. I did add some white dye ink for the stars and stripes using the positive stencil. I flickered some water and dried the excess with a paper towel. Next, I fussy cut the heart leaving a border. I cut out some Navy A2 size cardstock and glued my heart onto it with liquid glue. I grabbed some A2 sleeve covers and double sided adhesive tape to make a shaker. I just slid my A2 panel into it and taped all the necessary edges. Using Twilight Meadow and Old St. Nick I placed my sequins into my sleeve panel and used my tape to secure my ends. That is a easy way to make a shaker card if you ask me. I added my shaker to a A2 card base and added a white embossed sentiment strip premade from Taylored Expressions.

On this card, I sprayed some Sprays in Festive Berries Distress Spray, and Lindy’s Gang Penguin Play Periwinkle using the Negative Heart Stencil with Arches Cardstock. I heat dried my panel with my heat tool as it was really wet and messy. I then used some Fluff It Paste that I used a spatula to apply using the positive stencil. I used my heat gun and that makes the paste fluff. Be careful not to heat too much or it will burn. I then fussy cut the heart out. I glued it to another A2 size navy cardstock panel and glued it to a A2 card base. I scattered some sequins and adhered another sentiment. I hope you like my cards. They were so much fun to make.
