Life is Better in Flip Flops!

Hi everyone! I hope you are doing great today. I am hoping to try and finish all the Summer Cards I want to make that are on my list before I head into Autumn Cardmaking. Wish me luck!! So I hope you enjoy this one. I will have all my supplies and a coupon code down below for you!

I was inspired by some Flip Flops I saw recently. So there is my inspiration. I used this Beautiful Stamp set from Pink and Main called Stay Cool. I stamped and heat embossed the image onto Fabriano Hot Press Watercolor 140lb. paper. I colored it in with my Tombow Water Based Markers. 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 added my panel to a A2 card base and glued my image which was layered on black cardstock. I like the look of a little depth without using foam tape. I finished my card adding some blue sequins. I hope you like my card. It was so much fun to make, I love how Summery it is.

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.

Hello Bluebird Nesting Deckle Die

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.
