Get Well Wishes!

Monday, September 26, 2016

Happy Monday everyone! I have a fun set of cards using the Super Cute Get Well Gang set from WPlus9. This is a great set to create Get Well cards with.


I've created two cards with this set using the same layout but different colors and images. In the video below I create this Yellow and Pink version. I created a Blue version as well and I colored the images with Copics to show how versatile a layout can be. Just change up an image or two or the Color Palette and you have a different card. I started by Stamping the Transparent Triangles Background stamp from My Favorite Things onto a piece of Tim Holtz Watercolor card stock and heat embossed the image in White.

Then I added Distress inks in Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry &  with a Large Paintbrush. I flicked some water onto the background and lifted the color with water for a more distressed look. Then I adhered the panel to a Yellow A2 size card base. I die cut the frame from the Blueprints 27 from My Favorite Things using a piece of Neenah Solar White card stock. I adhered the frame with some Foam Tape. Then I stamped the images onto another piece of the same watercolor card stock using VersaFine Black Onyx ink. Then I watercolor the images using Distress Markers and a paintbrush.


I die cut the images using the coordinating dies and the Big Shot and set them aside. I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of Neenah Solar White and cut it out using the Banner from the Blueprints 27 set. I adhered the banner and all the images with some Foam tape and Liquid glue. For an additional pop of Shimmer I added some Pretty Pink Posh Mixed Sparkling Clear Sequins. I created the second card below in the same way just changing up the images and I colored the images in with Copics.


I used the following Distress Makers for the images: Hickory Smoke, Pumice Stone, Tumbled Glass, Spun Sugar, Carved Pumpkin, Picked Raspberry, Brushed Corduroy, Gathered Twigs & Antique Linen.

Check out the video below for more details on how I created this card.

Halloween is just around the corner and I'm loving all the fun Halloween and Fall sets that have been released this year. It makes it really hard to pick a Favorite! Today I'm using the My Favorite Things Frightful Friends and Grave Situation stamp sets. 

I started out by cutting two pieces of Neenah Solar White cardstock to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. Then I die cut one panel using the Pizzaz Pieces Creative Cuts die set from Mama Elephant. I lined the die cut panel up with the other panel and made some pencils marks inside the circle window. Then using some Distress inks in Squeezed LemonadeDusty Concord and Spiced Marmalade I created a background for the window opening. Once the Distress inks were dry I stamped the Fence and Bat images from the Frightful Friends set using some VersaFine Onyx Black ink. I added some Foam tape to the back of the window panel and adhered it over the Distressed panel. Then I adhered both panels to a Black top folding card base. 

I stamped the Vampire, Bat and Grass images from Frightful Friends and the Gravestones from Grave Situation sets onto some White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them in with Copics. Then I die cut them using the coordinating die sets and my Big Shot. I adhered them with liquid glue and foam tape. 

I stamped the sentiment from Frightful Friends onto a piece of White cardstock in VersaFine Onyx Black ink and die cut it using the Avery Elle Pierced Banners Die set. Then I adhered it just behind the Vampire image with some additional Foam tape. I wanted a little extra highlight so I added some white with a White Gel Pen. Super Cute!! 

I used the following Copic Sketch Markers: 
Vampire: (Cap & Boots) R29, R17, R39, Y23, Y28 (Shirt) C1,C00 (eyes) B00,B000 (Suit) C8,C6, C4, C1 (Skin) E000, E00,E51, E53 (Hair)T8, T6, T5,T3 (Grave Stones) W0,W2,W4,W6, W8 (Grass) YG09,G07,G28.

Friday, September 9, 2016

There's still time to join us at Your Next Stamp for Challenge #74. Today on the Blog the Design Team has a new round of inspiration using the Sketch and Color Challenge. 


I started with a White card base and then I added a piece of Doodlebug pattern paper that I die cut with the Large Stitched Rectangle die. Then I die cut a piece of Watercolor paper with the Stitched Rectangle Dies and added some clouds with a template I made from the Puffy Cloud Border die set and some Wilted Violet Distress Ink. 

I adhered the Stitched Square to the card front with some Fun Foam. Then I die cut the Ghost from the Happy Haunting set using Woodgrain card stock and added a little shading with some Smoky Slate Distress Ink and a small piece of Black card stock behind the eyes. I adhered them over the clouds with some Foam Tape. For a pop of sparkle I added some White Sugar and Sparkle Gumdrops.  I stamped the sentiment from the Waddles Trick or Treat set onto some Watercolor paper and trimmed it in to a Banner. I added two pieces of coordinating patter paper behind the sentiment as well. 

Head over to the YNS Blog for some more inspiration with this week's Challenge. There's a $15 GC to the store up for on lucky participant. The Linky will close on Thursday Sept. 15th.

YNS Design Team Dare

Wednesday, September 7, 2016

This month at Your Next Stamp our Design Team Dare is all about Fall Colors. Summer is officially over and Fall is slowly moving in. Join the Design Team for some great Fall Inspiration on the Your Next Stamp Blog. 

I'm using the super cute new set Funny Forest Critter Crew and coordinating die cuts. I used some fun pattern papers form the Doodlebug Fall Friends pack and the Stitched Rectangle Dies to create the card. I also cut the Chunky Grass & Stitched Grass dies from some additional papers to create a scene. 

I stamped the images onto some White card stock and colored them in with Copics. I adhered all the rectangle pieces to a White top folding card base and I added the fox and tree image with some foam tape. I die cut some of the Stitched Puffy Clouds and adhered those around the Sentiment that I stamped on to a Banner from the Cool Tag Three Die set.  

For an extra pop of Sparkle I added some Ice Ice Baby Sparkly Gumdrops around the Clouds and a little Clear Wink of Stella to the nose.
