You’re Flamazing!

Hello everyone! I hope you are doing great. I have a Flamingo card today. Mini Slimline and I hope you like it! I will have supplies listed down below for you! My motivation for this card were these Flamingos I recently seen at the Las Vegas Flamingo Hotel. They were very thirsty, it was so really HOT that day.

I started out using a gel press print that I had made previously. I used a Monstera Mini Slimline die from Trinity Stamps to cut out using my Gel Press print. I think it looks very tropical. I used a Flamingo die from Scrappy Tails Crafts. I cut out all the pieces with white cardstock. I ink blended using a Bubblegum and Guava ink from Simon Says Stamp. I added foam tape to my feathers before adhering them. I ink blended the nose or beak with black ink.

I used a fun sentiment from Taylored Expressions that I stamped in Bubblegum ink on white cardstock. I cut it out with a paper trimmer to fit my Mini Slimline panel. I glued my panel to a white Mini Slimline card base. I then added my flamingo and sentiment with liquid glue. I added some sequins and clear glaze and that finishes my card. I hope you like it.

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.

Paper Sweeties June 2022 New Release Rewind!

Hi everyone! Welcome to Paper Sweeties New Release Rewind. The Gnome Add On Summer Stamp and Sweet Cuts are available and I hope you will grab them. I have a video with today’s project down below and a Blog Hop!

Here is what I made for today:

I decided to make my Gnome a Suba Diver. I started out stamping all my images with Black ink. I used the New Gnome Summer Add On Stamp and Sweet Cuts. I also used Build A Gnome Stamp and Sweet Cuts. I colored up my Gnome images with Copic Markers and put him together using liquid glue.

I ink blended some Bristol Smooth cardstock using Gathered Twigs Distress Oxide ink, Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink, Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink. I did flick some water droplets and dried the excess with a paper towel. I cut my panel down and added it to a A2 card base. My sentiment is a Sneak Peek coming soon that I stamped and heat embossed onto blue cardstock with Versamark and Wow Opaque White Embossing Powder. I cut down my sentiment using my mini paper trimmer. I added my sentiment to my panel with foam strips. I added a banner from the sweet cuts Sweet banners. I cut that out two times with white cardstock and ink blended it with Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink. I added my Gnome with foam tape and added some Clear Glaze drops. I hope you like my project and projects from the last couple of days. Use the Code Moving to save 50% off current In stock products until June 30th 11:59 PM EST
