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!

Inspired by Stamping

with No Comments

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!

Paper Shelter Challenge

Another week, with another challenge at the Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog! Make sure you stop over there to check out all the great work the team did. This week’s theme is ‘Anything but a Birthday Sentiment’. The digital stamp i used is I miss you. We are grateful to be sponsored by the Paper Shelter this week. Be sure to check out there great digital stamp collections!



To create this card I cut out a rectangle around my image which would be the card front. I used some fun bright glitter paper for my card base. The image was coloured in with Spectrum Noir markers. My sentiment and little hearts is stamped from Hey Foxy stamp set. The beautiful girl is such a great focal point and really didn’t need too much to jazz it up in my opinion, but I really seem to like clean and simple style. Here is my finished card:


I’m glad you stopped by and visited! Every two weeks we have a new challenge at the Aud Sentiment Challenge blog! Be sure to check back!

Paper Nest Dolls Fairytale card!

with 2 Comments

Welcome to a new challenge at the Aud Sentiment Challenge Blog! This week we are promoting our sponsor at Paper Nest Dolls! My digital image used is called Fairy Emma with Unicorn and you can get it here. Be sure to go to the challenge page to see all of the other wonderful designs!

For this card I stamped a flower background using Simon Says Stamp ‘birthday flowers‘ stamp set. I used a few different purple inks. The center oval was die cut and then I used a clarity brush to lightly brush on some Ranger Distress ink. The Paper Nest Doll image was coloured with pencil crayons, and then over top I used Glossy Accents to make the image stand out more. The fairy tale stamp is taken from the My Favorite Things stamp set called Magical Unicorns. Of course matching purple sequins had to be added for some final touches!

Here is my final card!

Tax Time Fun!

with No Comments

Who doesn’t love doing a little tax inspired crafting?! Is it weird if I enjoy it? I saw this stamp set by Riley and co and just knew that it was the perfect sentiment! You can find this hilarious stamp here.

I first die cut a panel with stitched edging and stamped the sentiment in black versamark ink. I found these cute little tax kitties in the Mama Elephant ‘little cat agenda’ set. I stamped them in the same black versamark ink, and coloured them using my Spectrum Noir markers. For the card base I used a striped pattern paper from the Simon Says Stamp card kit from April 2016, and a matching solid piece of red paper.

Now to send this card to my favourite accountant!

Gorgeous Foiled Peacock

with 3 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.

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.
