Tiny Heroes

Mama Elephant Tiny Superheros CardHow can you not love a card with a tiny super hero and her super hero cat on it?!

I think you're super duper cardFor this card, I simply die-cut a circle window into a card panel. Then, I stamped my super-girl onto another panel, masked her off and used distress inks to color a yellow and orange background (I even added a few water droplets to the distress ink because..why not?). It ended up looking like the little lady is flying a bit too close to the sun!

Thinking of You Card

This girl is just so cute with her polka dot dress and little bunny!

Thinking of You Tilda Stamp

I got this stamp as a gift with a purchase (similar stamps here), and I wasn’t sure I’d like it at first. It just didn’t seem my style. But then I stamped her and colored her, and fell in love. I used Copic markers for the coloring, added polka dots to her dress using a white gel pen and then cut her out with scissors.

I colored a background on a card panel using an assortment of Copic markers, and stuck her onto the panel using foam tape to give her a little dimension. Then I stamped the Thinking of You sentiment and added a little heart that I made glossy using a bit of glossy accents glue. Perfect for Easter!

Hey There, Cupcake!

Hey There Cupcake Card

Today’s card features all kinds of fun techniques – heat embossing on the cupcake sentiment, dry embossing on the panel with cute little polka dots, masking to color the area behind the cupcake with distress inks, and partial die-cutting to create the circle window for my cupcake to sit in. Phew.

I colored the cupcake and stand with Copic markers, and then used a Wink of Stella pen to add some glitter to the cupcake frosting, and glossy accents to embellish the pink parts of the cupcake stand.

Hey There Cupcake

I can’t decide if this is a birthday card or just a cute note card. Either way, it’s making me hungry.



Sending Birthday Wishes to a Spring Chicken

Sending Birthday Wishes Card

I’ve been really excited to share this card because I am so happy with how it came out… and you can never have too many birthday cards on hand!

Spring Chicken Card

For this card, I partially die-cut a stitched circle into my top panel to create an opening to perch my cute little chicken on. I stamped then colored the chicken with Copic markers onto the card base, and then masked him off and used distress inks and a mini ink blending tool to create the bright yellow/orange background. I die-cut the Sending sentiment with the Simon Says Stamp Sending die, colored it with my Copics to make it a nice red-orange color, and glued it to my panel. I then also used several sentiments from the SSS Birthday Farm Animals stamp set to assemble the rest of the greeting at the bottom of the card. Then I mounted my panel on top of the colored chicken using foam tape to give it a bit of dimension.

I didn’t get the sentiments stamped quite evenly, but I think it kind of adds to the playfulness of the card.



Happy Birthday, Cupcake!

Happy Birthday CardAnother birthday card! This one was created for one of my girlfriends so I wanted it to be cute and feminine. Made with fun washi tapes and the birthday tags stamp set and tag, you’re it and stitched rectangles dies from Lawn Fawn, was inspired by this card that I saw on one of my favorite card making blogs, A Blog Called Wanda.

Happy Birthday CupcakeAfter cutting out the tag die, I stamped out the cupcake, candle and happy birthday sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink. I colored the cupcake with copic markers, added some pink twine, and set it aside. I took the stitched rectangle panel and added the three strips of washi tape, and mounted the tag on top of the panel using foam tape to give it a bit of dimension. I centered the panel onto a slightly larger cut piece of pink paper, then mounted the whole thing onto a card base. I probably could have left it as is, but decided to add a few sequins here and there to add a bit of embellishment. I adhered those with ranger multi medium matte glue. I love how cute the card came out, and putting it all together was quick and easy. And it’s a fun use for washi tape (of which I now have many rolls)!
