Thanks A Sloth

Technique Tuesday

July 29, 2019

Hi Friends! Today, I am sharing a card using the fun Sloane and Slater the Sloths Stamp and Die Set from Technique Tuesday.


I started my card by stamping the adorable sloth and heat setting my image with clear embossing powder. Next, I used my Zig Real Brush Watercolor pens to watercolor my image. I then used the coordinating Sloane and Slater the Sloths Crafting Dies to die cut my images.



Next, I took cardstock strips cut down to 3.75 x 4 inches and glued them onto a cardstock mat to create my background. I then die cut coordinating circles to mount my sloth onto. Lastly, I stamped my sentiment onto a banner.


To finish my card, I attached everything to an A2 card base.
This is such a fun stamp set!! I love the sentiments and of course Sloane and Slater might just be the cutest sloths I have ever seen!!

Enjoy your day,
Dana

Just Because

Technique Tuesday

July 26, 2019

Hi Friends and Happy Friday! I hope you all are doing well. Today I am sharing a clean and simple card for Technique Tuesday using the  Hello Hollyhocks Stamp Set. There are so many different ways to color this gorgeous stamp set, but today I did a little something different. Let's get started...


I started by stamping my Hollyhocks in VersaMark ink and heat setting my image with gold embossing powder. 
*Please excuse the next few pictures but I created this card in the evening so my pictures are a little dark. I hope the steps are helpful though.


Next, I sprinkled Nuvo Shimmer Powder in Cherry Bomb on my image. A little powder goes a long way... I also taped my watercolor panel down with some washi tape so it would stay flat when I added my water.


I then added water to my image. 


I used a paper towel to dab up any excess water and let my image dry naturally.


Once my shimmer powder was dry I used the coordinating Hello Hollyhocks Crafting Dies to die cut my image.  


For my card design, I created a mat with soft gray cardstock. I scored the edges to create a frame and attached this to my A2 card base. Next, I cut a smaller piece of white cardstock and stamped my sentiment. I then attached this to my card front and added my die cut Hollyhocks with foam adhesive.


I hope you enjoyed my clean and simple card today. Let me know if you have any questions and I will do my best to answer them.

Pretty Pink Posh

July 25, 2019

Hi Friends! I hope you all are having a wonderful week! Today, I am sharing a card that uses the adorable Tropical Toucans Stamp Set from Pretty Pink Posh...I am still loving and creating with this release. 


I started my card by stamping my images from the Tropical Toucans Stamp Set in black ink and coloring them with Copic markers. I then used the Tropical Toucans Coordinating Dies to cut them out.


For my card design, I used the Storybook 5 Die. I die cut it from the center of my card panel and then ink blended Distress Oxide Ink in Peacock Feathers and Picked Raspberry onto the inside pieces of the frame. Next, I stamped my sentiment and heat set white embossing powder onto it...I love the look of the white embossed sentiment on the colorful card design.


To finish my card, I attached everything to my A2 card base. Lastly, I added a few jewels from the Luau Jewels Mix. Every card needs a few jewels, right? I hope you enjoyed my card today! Thanks for the visit!!

Glitzy Glitter

MFT Stamps
Camp Create Day 5

July 23, 2019

Good Morning! I am back today sharing my final card for the MFT Stamps Camp Create. The theme today is Glitzy Glitter. I used the MFT Stamps Color Celebration Glitter Cardstock pack for my glitter paper. I love this paper because there is not the mess of using actual glitter.


I started my card by die cutting the MFT Stamps Stitched Rainbow Die from the glitter paper. Once I had done this I had enough pieces to make a few cards. 


For my first card, I die cut the MFT Stamps Stitched Cloud Edges dies from white cardstock. I then stamped my sentiment from the MFT Stamps Beautiful Blessings stamp set onto my bottom cloud. I attached my clouds to my card front with foam adhesive and tucked my rainbow in behind. 


For my next card, I attached my rainbow pieces onto my card front at an angle. I then used the MFT Stamps Celebrate die for my sentiment. Both cards came together fairly quickly once I had everything die cut. 
Thanks MFT Stamps for a fun week of "camp"!! I've enjoyed the challenges and had fun creating! I hope you all get a chance to play along too.
Enjoy your day,
Dana



Sensational Slider

MFT Stamps
Camp Create Day 4

July 22, 2019

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a Wonderful weekend. I am back today sharing my card for Day 4 of MFT Stamps Camp Create. The challenge for Day 4 was to create a slider card. 



I began my creating my background with the MFT Stamps Sun Ray Stencil and a Wave Stencil. I used Distress Oxide Ink in Mustard Seed and Salty Ocean for my ink blending. I then used the MFT Stamps Ocean Waves die to cut my water edge at the top of my blue panel. Next, I stamped my jellyfish from the Ocean Fun stamp set and the seagull from the Seaside Seagulls stamp set. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. 


Next, I created my slider using the slider dies and small slider discs.  I followed the video fairly closely for this step, attaching my jellyfish to the discs. Lastly, I added my seagull and sentiment to the bottom of my card with foam adhesive.

I will be back tomorrow with my card for Day 5...
Enjoy your day,
Dana


Toucan Do It!

Pink and Main

July 21, 2019

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! Today I am on the Pink and Main Blog sharing a Tropical themed card using a fun stamp set from the New Release. Have you already done your shopping and picked out your favorites from the New Release? There is such a great variety...a little something for everyone. 


I started my card by stamping the Toucan from the Toucan Do It Stamp Set in black ink. There are so many fun images in this stamp set, it was hard to decide what I wanted to use first. I colored my toucan and leave with Copic markers and then used the Toucan Do It Coordinating Dies to die cut my images.


Next, I began working on my card panel. I die cut the Reverse Scallop Circle Die from my card front and then I die cut it again from a piece of tropical green cardstock. I inlaid my frame and center piece back into my card front and attached everything to my A2 card base. I then stamped my sentiment onto a banner and attached my images to my card front with foam adhesive. To finish my, I added a strip of black and white polka dot paper to the bottom of my card front. 


I hope you enjoyed my card today! I can't wait to see what you create with the New Release from Pink and Main.

Christmas in July

For my first card, I started by die cutting the Wonderful Wreath Die from cardstock to make a stencil. I also die cut the Essential Stitched Label from kraft cardstock.



Next, I inlaid my die cut back into the negative piece and created a stencil. I attached this to my craft label and taped off the bow. 


I then added Glitz Glitter Gel in Grass Green by Gina K Designs onto my wreath.


I let this dry for a bit and then I removed the stencil.


I attached the stencil again, this time adding Glitz Glitter Gel in Red Velvet to the bow area.


I once again removed the stencil and let the Glitz Glitter Gel dry.


Next, I attached another die cut Wreath back over my glitter to define my lines and to help the wreath stand out.


To finish my card, I stamped my sentiment from the Classic Christmas Sentiments Stamp Set at the bottom of my card panel. 


For my next card, I die cut my wreath from a piece of white cardstock and inlaid it back into my card panel.


Next, I stamped my sentiment from the Classic Christmas Sentiments Set onto my white panel. I then die cut the bow from red cardstock and inlaid the pieces back into my wreath.


To finish my card, I attached everything to my card base. This card really came together quickly. I think it would be a perfect card to make a few of to have ready at Christmas time.

Spectacular Shakers

MFT Stamps
Camp Create Day 3

July 19, 2019

Good Morning and Happy Friday! I am back today with Day 3 of Camp Create at MFT Stamps. Today is all about creating a shaker card.


I started my card by die cutting the MFT Stamps Peek A Boo Window onto my card panel. I then used the MFT Stamps Pierced Square STAX to cut the other three square for my card front.


Next, I used the MFT Stamps Ocean Fun stamp set to stamp my ocean animals onto my squares. To assemble my shaker, I used the MFT Stamps Square Shaker Pouch and attached it to my card panel. These punches are so easy to use...no need to mess with acetate and layers of foam adhesive. 


To finish my card, I attached my stamped square to my card panel with foam adhesive. I then attached my panel to my A2 top fold card base and tied a piece of baker's twine across the top.
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you get a chance to play along with Camp Create this week.



Enjoy your day,
