Spread kindness


Hi everyone,

Happy Monday to you. 
Today's card was created using a Mama Elephant stamp set.
I stamped the image with Versamark ink and added white embossing powder and then coloured the image using Zig pens.
Die cut the whole panel using a rectangle stitched die. Stamped the sentiment on black cs and embossed with white embossing powder.
Finished it off by adding some embellishments using Nuvo crystal drops.



Well that's it for this card.

Sending love & hugs,

Hi everyone,

It's a beautiful sunny day here with blue sky but cold.
This is perfect weather to wear my nice fur hat that I bought in Iceland in August. 
Maybe I'll post a pic. Lol!

Well I do have a lovely Valentine's Day card to share that I am also entering in the SSS Anything Goes' challenge here



First I ran a piece of white cardstock through my die cutting machine using a stitched rectangle die.
I cut the panel in 3 pieces using another stitched die.
From there I applied several strips of washi tape to the middle piece and ran that through again with a different stitched cutting die.
I die cut the large heart from a piece of washi covered card and then die cut a small heart from red felt for the centre.
I then added the sentiment to the piece and layered the 3 pieces onto a pink background piece, added
the layered hearts and that's it for this card.

You're so sweet!

Hi everyone,

Hope everyone is having a great weekend so far!

Well it seems that I'm still in the romance mode for Valentine's Day so I have a card today to share using some fun Lawn Fawn products.


I started with a large background stamp and some red ink to create the card base. I then used a couple of stitched rectangle dies to emboss the background. I then used the same 2 dies to create the background to my gumball machine with some patterned paper. I stamped the gumball image with black ink, die cut that and started to add some colours to the gumballs using Copics.
I added a little metallic look to the machine using some metallic watercolour paint. Added the sentiment and then mounted the piece with foam tape and added some glossy accents to the red sections of the machine. 
And that's my card.

Baby, it's cold outside!

Hi everyone,

Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

Today's card is a fun one that I made and am entering in the Simon Says Stamps Wednesday challenge here using Lawn Fawn products. 


I started by using a stitched rectangle die to cut out the patterned panel background. I then used 2 different border dies to cut out my hills.
I moved onto stamping my Alpacas. One was stamped the usual way and the other was stamped using a mirror image stamp which I have from Rubber Stampede (247F). The stamp is basically a blank piece of rubber to which you stamp your image onto and then stamp onto your cardstock. This creates a mirror image of your originally stamped image. Neat!

Die cut them both out and then coloured them using Copics. I stamped the sentiment, added some sequins and that's it for this card.

Hugs

Hi everyone,

Just sharing another Valentine's Day card.


I used an embossing folder to create the background of my card. Die cut the heart once with patterned paper and a second time using vellum. The sentiment was die cut using red felt. I applied patterned paper to the card base, added the embossed background to the base and layered the hearts and sentiment to the front of the card. 
Finished it up with some sequins and twine and that's it.
