More Snowflakes!

Hi everyone! I have another Snowflake card today for Woodblock Wednesday. I love this fun Challenge that you can link up over on Amy Tsuruta’s Blog. I had fun making another snowflake card using non traditional colors and my woodblock stamps.

I first grabbed some white cardstock that I cut to a A2 size 4.1/4 x 5 1/2. I stamped Dear Friend using a Woodblock stamp in the center with Color Box ink in Candy(pink). I have had this stamp for so long, I was happy to use it. I then used a Snowflake Woodblock stamp from Hero Arts. I stamped it repeatedly with Catherine Pooler Matcha Ink and then with Catherine Pooler Crushed Violet ink.

I stamped the sentiment “Dear Friend” again on white cardstock with Candy ink and fussy cut it out. I then added foam tape to the back of it. I trimmed my panel to 4x 5.25 and glued it to a gray heavy weight card base 110lb. I added some translucent sequins and my sentiment and that finishes my card. I hope you like it. I had fun making it. I love getting use out of my woodblock stamps.

Thank you for stopping by!

With Sympathy

Hello everyone! I hope you are doing well. I’m back with another Guest Designing project for Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps. This card is using a Beautiful Birds & Blooms Stamp Set, Typewriter Text Background, and With Love Word Die Set.

I first stamped my images from the Birds and Blooms Stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on white cardstock and cut out my images with the Brother Scan n Cut. I then colored my bird and blooms with Copic Markers. I used white cardstock and stamped the Typewriter Text Background with Uncharted Mariner Distress Oxide ink using my Misti Stamping Platform. I cut out my background using a rectangle die from my stash

Next, I used the With Love Word die set using a the “with” and “Sympathy” words. I cut them out with white cardstock 3 times and with yellow cardstock 1 time. It’s never easy to make a Sympathy card but I feel this card has a lot of love to make anyone feel loved. I added foam tape to the back of my blooms and bird and adhered them to my rectangle panel. My panel was added to a blue heavyweight card base. I then added my word sentiments and sequins to match. I hope you like it. I will be back next week with more projects for Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps.

Hello everyone! It had been a bit since I posted on my blog and thought today was a good day for it. I have been inspired by so many snowflake cards. So I made some snowflake cards and I will be making more. Earlier in the month it was inspired by trees and now snowflakes. It’s so good to be inspired and motivated don’t you think so?

I started out with heavy weight Karaft Cardstock 110lb. I used a Unity Stamp Co. Stamp set called Kindness is like snow for the snowflakes. I really love these rubber stamps. I stamped the snowflakes randomly in Versafine Onyx black ink and Gina K Designs White pigment ink. I love how they look and super easy to make your own backgrounds. I then used a retired MFT Rectangle die set to cut my panels out. I then used a Sizzix Tim Holtz Snowflakes 3D Impresslits that I got on clearance at Hobby Lobby. It’s a embossing folder that cuts out the shape. Super neat. So I did that with vellum. It has the large and small snowflake.

I then used silver glitter paper with a retired MFT Sweet Snowflakes die set. I left the snowflakes connected to each other and so I could cut out the 3 snowflakes at a time. I glued my snowflakes to my panels. I stamped some sentiments from Papertrey Ink called Just Sentiments:Snow on white cardstock in Versafine Black Onyx ink. I cut them to fit and attached them with foam tape. I glued my panels to Black A2 heavy weight card bases. I then added some glitter snowflake pops of color liquid drops. I hope you like them. I went and made 3 more just like this but they are Thank you cards that were given to my recipients in person.

Thank you for stopping by, I hope I inspired you!

I’m Thankful For You!

Hey everyone! I hope you are doing great today. I have a Fall card today for the current Inky Paws Challenge #181 by Newton’s Nook Designs which is Fall Theme. I will have supplies listed that are still available down below for you!

I first started out with white cardstock and the purr-fect Autumn Leaves Die set. I cut out a bunch of leaves and acorns and began inking them up. I used inks Flame. Martini, and Icing On The Cake by Catherine Pooler. On some leaves I used 2 ink colors. The daubers I used seem to make them look so real. I then put them aside and began working on my background. I grabbed some white cardstock and ink blended it with Ripe Persimmon Distress Oxide ink, Fossilized Distress Oxide ink, and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide ink. I flicked some water droplets and dried the excess with a paper towel. I then flickered some Distress Mica Distress Spray Stain in Crooked Broomstick. I them cut out my panel with a Scalloped Rectangle A2 die from my stash.

I stamped and heat embossed this cute Fox from the Woodland Spring with WOW Metallic Gold Rich embossing powder onto white cardstock. I colored it with Copic Markers and fussy cut it out. I also stamped and heat embossed a sentiment to go with my card. I cut down my sentiment with a paper trimmer. Next, I arranged my leaves and image. My image and sentiment, acorns have foam tape added to the back before being adhered to my panel. I arranged my leaves to ahave some with foam tape and other glued with liquid glue. Lastly, I added some orange sequins and added my panel to a A2 card base. I hope you like my card using Newton’s Nook Designs. I had a blast making it!

4th Of July card featuring Lawn Fawn

Hi everyone! I made a card, a 4th of July card and I even have a video. You can watch it here or on my YouTube Channel Vonmariedesign.

I adore these critters from Lawn Fawn and I knew I had to make a card with them because the Newest Release is already available. and I can’t wait to get those items in my hands. I needed to make a 4th of July card since I have this fun Firework stencil from Pretty Pink Posh. I sprayed my cardstock with Pixie spray and used Stormy Sky and Campfire Wilderness for my Distress Oxide ink color using blending tools from Taylored Expressions. I really like the end results. Next I stamped these critters from Happy Hugs onto my cardstock with Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink. I colored them in with my Copic Markers and then used the Happy Hugs die to cut them using my Spellbinders Platinum Machine. I was looking for a scalloped circle but came across this die that did the stitching of a scalloped circle. I thought that was neat and I didn’t have to cover up my background. I then used the smallest star because that too gave just the stitching marks.

I cut my panel slightly smaller than a A2 panel using my paper trimmer. I stamped my sentiment in Stormy Sky distress ink and cut it out with a banner die. I added foam strips to my image and sentiment and added them to my panel. My panel was then added to a A2 top folding card base. I then used Confetti stars from my stash and Sapphire Jewels from Pinkfresh Studio. I hope you enjoyed my video and card process. It was so much fun. I also will be linking this card to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge-Red/White and/ or Blue.

Thank you for stopping by!
