Safari Sunset with Altenew Baby Zoo

with No Comments

I had so much fun last time with the Baby Zoo I am back again with another card using the stamp set. This time I used the die cuts to create shadowed animals as if they are out in the wild with the African sunset in the background. I love that I had a reversed ‘happy birthday’ stamp to continue with the black shadowed focus of the card. I love that the Altenew Baby Zoo stamp set has the versatility to do this cool shadow look. It can create some pretty cool cards!

 

 

Thanks for visiting me again! Come back soon!

The Altenew Baby Zoo stamp and die set is so great for kids birthdays! The cute chevron background matched the color scheme perfectly and brought the card together. The happy birthday banner is from The Ton ‘Hey Foxy’ stamp set.

 

 

Here is a closer look.

 

 

Using a different color scheme on the same card can really change it up. I cannot choose which card I like better!

 

 

Here is a closer look.

That’s all the fun for today! Thanks for checking out my creations!

I just love a cute animal on the front of a card, and these dogs from My Favorite Things are so adorable. To make this card I used the brick stencil from MFT, and Distress Inks to create the brick wall background. I die cut a piece of grass using the grass die cut, and just covering the bottom of the card so it wouldn’t get any red at the bottom. Then I used the other half of the paper I cut the grass out of, to protect the brick from any green getting on it.

 

 

The doggie was hand cut, since I don’t have the dies that go with it, and was coloured with my Spectrum Noir markers.

What a happy little card, that was actually quite simple to put together! I love when backgrounds come together so easily while looking quite intricate and detailed!

Here is a close up look:

There is nothing worse than the passing of a loving pet. Sometimes they have been in your life for 20+ years such as a cat that you have had from a little kitten. Losing any pet is very hard. I have found that animal condolence cards can be very welcoming in these sad times for family members. I try to make them as uplifting as possible, but sometimes it is hard to represent without being terribly sad.

 

This card has been created using two My Favorite Things stampt sets; Cool Cat and Magical Unicorns. I love the combining of the wings behind the cat as it goes up into the clouds over the rainbow into heaven. The background was blended together using a mix of Distress Inks in pinks and purples. Spectrum Noir markers were used for the kitty and rainbow.

 

 

I love how the colours make the card a little bit more uplifting and happy, to allow the recipient to view their beloved family better off in a better place.

 

Here is a close up of the cat.

How I have missed crafting!

Wow.. It has been so long since I have crafted something nice! I took some time off for a few months but now I’m back! I have been busy with a few cards this past week and I have come here to share them with you!

This card is so incredibly pink! It was made to celebrate someones birthday.. and they just so happened to LOVE pink, and sparkles! These two things might also be my favourite things as well! I wanted to create an ombre effect with the sequins going from dark to light. I didn’t have a 5-0 die cut so I just printed large numbers out and traced them onto my pink sparkly paper and then cut it out by hand.

I really hope the recipient enjoyed their card, and their 50th birthday party!

 

Thank you for visiting and checking out my creations! Hopefully it doesn’t take me 3 months to write another post.

 

This card has been entered into the camp create ombre challenge!

Beautiful Anniversary Card

with 2 Comments

Welcome to another week with the Aud Sentiment Challenge blog! This week it is Ànything Goes! Get crafty and join the challenge! Our sponser this week is Ike`s Art.

This week, I made a sweet Anniversary card using the Ike`s Art Rose Border digital stamp.

I used the Altenew Vintage Roses stamp set which contains the `happy anniversary`sentiment. The digital stamp was coloured with Spectrum Noir markers. I used pink Distress Ink to blend some colour behind the sentiment, blending with clarity brushes. Adding a strip of silver glitter tape to the top border, and a few shiny heart sequins and the sweet card was complete!

Be sure to go to the Aud Sentiment Challenge Blog to look at all of the wonderful projects from the Design Team.

Inspired by Stamping

Hello again,

Here is another challenge over at the Aud Sentiment Challenge Blog. This week we are creating a card, or any type of project that is created with clear or rubber stamps. Be sure to check out everyone’s fabulous projects here.

For my card I used the Lawn Fawn ‘Loveable Legends’ clear stamp set. I did some embossing with black embossing powder of the trees and the footprints, since I was doing some ink blending overtop. To create my super soft and subtle blue sky I used Clarity brushes and ranger inks. This just allowed the application of the ink to be light, and soft.

The blue paper background was heat embossed with snow flakes and white embossing powder. The silver glitter tape was placed across the top right corner. I added the googly eyes as a finishing touch to make the loveable guy a little more loveable.

Here is my final card! Thanks for checking it out!
