Gorgeous Foiled Peacock

with 2 Comments

Hi everyone! I was on a brief break due to missing some creative mojo, but I got back into the groove when I saw this beautiful Peacock digital stamp! (Peacock is from Ike’s Art). Immediately upon seeing it I knew that I was going to foil this! I hope you enjoy the finished product!

This project is created for the Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog! Come check out the design teams projects and enter your own for a chance to win!

To create my card I first printed out my stamp onto 80lb white cardstock using my laser printer.

Using my MINC, I placed blue foil overtop of my peacock and made sure that it was completely covered.

The foil and the peacock image were sent through my MINC at the heat setting of 4.

Once I cut out the foiled peacock, I coloured the image using Spectrum Noir markers.

I stamped my sentiment using Ranger Embossing Ink and heat embossed with black embossing powder.

Here is my finished product!

 

 

In case you feel like the leftover foil is wasted, here is what I did with the leftovers! I do love recycling!

 

To start I attatched a piece of strong clear acetate to the back of the foiled peacock to add some stability. I used dry glue to prevent any glue from showing through.

 

Next I die cut a window in my card front. I used a stitched square die from Simon Says Stamp. I adhered the peacock panel in behind the stitched square.

 

Here is the finished product with a stamped sentiment.

Valentines Day is just around the corner. The challenge this week at Aud Sentiment Challenge Blog is “Valentines or Love Sentiment”. Check out the challenge blog for all of our projects and to add your own!

 

I decided to create a ‘shaker’ card filled with fun pink coloured sequins for my Love themed card. The patterned paper is from Crate paper along with the sentiment stickers. I used an Avery Elle heart die cut to create the shaker window.

 

Well there you have it! My simple looking pink valentines card! Thanks for stopping by to check it out!

Welcome to the next Aud Sentiment Challenge Blog Post! This week we created masculine cards using Dr Digi’s images!

This guy is perfect for dads, or any men in your life. I always have a hard time finding something masculine to make, and now Ive got this guy to use! I’m so excited to see what I can make with him. I have created two projects so far with him and I have them here for you to see!

To get this Hole in one Hal visit Dr Digi’s House of Stamps!

 

For this card I used the Simon Says Stamp set from the “Showered with Love” May card kit from 2016.

 

This second card I created with some matching manly patterned papers. Don’t you know a man who owns a patterned vest in that orange and blue?!

First Challenge of 2017

with 3 Comments

Welcome to the first challenge of 2017 at the Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog! This challenge is an “Anything Goes” theme, so be sure to create whatever your heart desires. This week I created a winter scene and kept all of the fun on the inside of the card, and wanted it to appear like a Pop-up card. The stamp set I featured is the “Joy to the Woods” set by Lawn Fawn.

 

Some other items that I used to create this card include Distress Inks, and blending tools. I splattered some white watercolour paint overtop to appear like snow. I also used the Lawn Fawn “Bah Humbug” stamp set for my “warm winter wishes” sentiment, and “Let it Snow” is from Pretty Pink and Posh’s “Winter Bird Friend”. The colouring of the critters was done with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.

Thanks for checking out my card, and be sure to check out the Aud Sentiment Challenge Blog to see everyone’s creations!

Sweet little baby card

with No Comments

Welcome! I am here with a adorable and super colourful baby shower card! I love that I didn’t have to do very much colouring with this card (since I am not very talented in that department). The only thing coloured is the little bear. I used the Wplus9 stamp set “Going Places” and the coordinating die set. The balloons are a die from Mama Elephant and I used a different shade of blue cardstock, along with the same green that I used for the grass. For the grass hill I used a die from My Favorite Things called “Snow Drifts“. The stamped words are from Altenew Baby Zoo stamp set.

I dressed up the envelope as well, and I just love this colour scheme! So cute for a boy!

 

Thanks for visiting, and be sure to check back again for the first challenge of the new year from Aud Sentiments blog!

 

 

New Years Celebration Shaker Card

with 1 Comment

 

Happy New Year !

Thank you to everyone who has supported me this year! 2016 Has been such a great year! This was my first year having a blog, which was definitely an interesting experience, and I can’t wait for what 2017 has in store! Now onto my New Years Shaker Card!

This card was actually very simple to make with only a few ‘ingredients’ needed. The New Years Eve confetti I found at a local Dollarama, and then I used some gold glitter paper from American Crafts, and some Simon Says Stamp cardstock.

I cut out my shaker window with My Favorite Things Scalloped Circle Dies, and I used scalloped border die to cut out the navy cardstock. A clear piece of acetate was placed behind the gold glitter paper to act as a window, and foam adhesive was placed all around the outside border of the circle. I doubled up the foam adhesive so I had a nice big space for the confetti inside the window. Once the confetti was placed inside, all that was left was to glue it all together, and decorate the front!

I heat embossed 2017 with Ranger gold heat embossing powder, and the 2017 stamp is from Altenew Calligraphy Alpha set.

 

 

Thank you for checking out my celebration card! I wish everyone a Happy New Year’s Eve, and a fabulous 2017!!

I have entered this card into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge ‘Anything Goes’

Getting holiday ready!

Hi! I am a little late posting this card for the Aud Sentiments challenge, but better late than never! This weeks sponsor is the Paper Shelter! 

I love the cute little Santa with his reindeer, and I am so glad I got to use this digital stamp! Here is the card that I made :

december-card

 

I used my red distress ink to create the red cardstock, and out that overtop of my image to create a circle frame. Gold glitter tape down the left side of the card really added some fun, along with the gold sequins. I used Spectrum Noir markers to colour my image.

Christmas is definitely a busy time of year, hopefully everyone can have some time to themselves to craft!

Happy Halloween!

with No Comments

Hey everyone! I am wishing you all a happy Halloween filled with lots of chocolate and candy! For this week’s challenge at Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog, we made a ‘Cute’ card using images from our sponsor at Bugaboo Stamps.

I used the ‘Sillouette – happy halloween cat’ stamp and you can find it here.

halloween-sillouette

To create this card, I cut out a stitched circle as near to the inside border of the stamp as I could. I used the Simon Says Stamp stitched border circle dies. I then did some Distress Ink Blending using orange and black on the outside top layer, and some blue and black on that inside circle. The fence was cut from black card stock using a Pretty Pink and Posh fence die cut. The two little bats and the BOO! are confetti that I had bought from Michaels last Halloween! They come in handy and allowed the card to look a little bit more fun!

This was a quick and easy card, which is super reproducible. These digital stamps from Bugaboo stamps are so versatile and easy to use. I highly recommend them! Thanks for visiting, and be sure to check out the challenge blog for all of the inspiration!
