Valentine’s Day Card Series 2017 | Day 3 of 6 | Avery Elle Hogs & Kisses

dscn2607

Here is day 3 of my sweet little Valentine’s Day series.  I decided to do something different and create two little note cards with the Avery Elle Hogs and Kisses stamp set.  I used some pattern paper and embossed some white cardstock.  Then I colored the hog and cow from the stamp set with my Spectrum Noir markers.  Really cute for your child’s lunchbox or classmates.

dscn2359

Here is day 2 of my Valentine’s Day card series.  For day 2 I used this sweet little Sunny Studio stamp set called, Sending Love.  I bought the little wax seal at Target in the dollar spot.  You get 4 for a $1 in two different designs.  I just think it added a nice little touch.

Here is the December 2016 Kit of the Month from Unity Stamp Co.  It is called Always Been You.  This is different from my other 10 cards 1 kit video in that it is only stamps. This allowed me to bring in my own patterned paper and embellishments.  All images and sentiments are from the kit.  If you would like to see the process video, click here.  You will also find links to Unity Stamp Co if you are interested in the kit or future ones.

dscn2240

Here is day 1 of my Valentine’s Day card series.  The colors aren’t really the first thing you think of when you think of Valentine’s, but I just had to use that patterned paper! The paper is from My Mind’s Eye called, Fancy That, which I purchased from Michaels months ago.  I used the fairly new released stamp set from Avery Elle called, Swans.  If you would like to check out the process video and find a list of supplies, click here.

10 Cards 1 Kit | December 2016 | Hero Arts

dscn2178

Here is the December Hero Arts card kit for 2016.  Although I like the kit I was having trouble finding the inspiration putting together the 10 cards.  Some came naturally and turned out really well, while other cards were not so hot, lol.  For the process video and a list of supplies, click here.

For the card below I stamped out each image and used my Xyron Sticker Maker to add adhesive to a sheet of vellum.  It turned out perfect as I was able to attach my vellum and not worry about where I was going to add adhesive and if it was going to be seen.

For this card I did some quick ink blending and splatter.

This card….. I have no words, but looking at it I think I was channeling a 5 year old…. I hate it, LOL.  Keep scrolling!!!

dscn2181

For the card below I used some of the washi tape that came in the kit that is really cute!  I love the sun ray (for lack of a better term) die that came in the kit.

dscn2182

My plan for the card below to watercolor a certain way took a turn and I had to scrap my original plan.  I used a scallop edge die and heat embossed the cheers stamp for my sentiment.

dscn2183

This card is my favorite!  I love this gold foil cardstock that came in the kit.  I heat embossed some images in gold embossing powder and they went so well with the paper

2016 Holiday Card Series | Day 21, 22, 23, 24, and 25 of 25!

I know Christmas is over, but I had to post these to officially end the holiday series for 2016.  Below are the last 5 cards of the series.

The sweet card above was day 21.  I used this sweet stamp set by Wild Rose Studio.  I used my Distress Inks to watercolor the birdies and my Marvy Snow Marker to add some dimension to their little santa hats.  For the process video and a list of supplies, click here.

For day 22 I only used one stamp.  The fireplace was a die from MFT.  I really liked the way this card turned out.  I used my distress inks for all the color and a fireplace stencil to create the brick.  The patterned paper I used was actually from a Halloween Paper Pack from Tim Holtz.  If you would like to see how I made this video and a list of supplies, click here.

On day 23 I created this quick card using a Concord & 9th stamp set.  I got inspiration for this card from a similar card posted on their website.  However, I decided to stick to traditional colors, green and red, and used patterned paper and a strip of washi tape to finish it off.  For the process video and a list of supplies, click here

For day 24 I made this super simple card using MFT Deer Friends stamp set.  The background was a larger print piece of patterned paper that was perfect for creating this scene.  For the quick process video and a list of supplies used, click here.

For my final day I created this pretty little blue Christmas tree card.  I used Hero Arts Christmas Layering stamp set.  I wanted to use this patterned paper from Echo Park and wanted the tree to match, so I used three different blue Distress Inks and it turned out perfectly.  For the process video and a list of supplies, click here.

I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas holiday or whatever you chose to celebrate.  I will be back in a few days with my 10 cards 1 kit from Hero Arts December Card Kit.

12 Days of Christmas Tags 2016 | Day 11 and 12 of 12

So here are the final days of my 2016 Holiday Tag Series.  For day 11 I used new Stampin’ Up items I purchased recently, called Cookie Cutter Christmas.  I just couldn’t wait to use them!  I also used some of my washi tape to add the sentiment and some quick decoration.  Easy and quick for those last minute gifts!  For the process video, click here.  There you will find a list of supplies as well.

For my final day of my tag series I used Sunny Studios Blissful Baking.  This stamp set is beyond words.  It is so precious!!!!  I colored the images with my Spectrum Noir markers and fussy cut them since I did not have the dies.  This is great for those baked goodies you will be gifting to friends and family.  For the process video, click here.  There you will find a list of supplies.

 

12 Days of Christmas Tags 2016 | Day 8, 9, and 10 of 12

Above is day 8 of my holiday tag series.  I really wanted to try the chalkboard look and I think it turned out pretty good.  I used Tim Holiday Drawings stamp set and white pigment ink.  If you would like to see this technique, click here.  All supplies used will be in the description box of the video.

For day 9 I used another Tim Holtz stamp set called Scribbly Christmas.  I got my inspiration from a Simon Says Stamp blog post by Wanda Guess who made a card using this stamp set.  I loved the look and decided to switch it up and make tags.  For the process video, click here.  You will find links to the supplies there.

Finally for day 10 I used this sweet Clearly Besotted stamp set, Let’s Prance.  I love these little reindeer!  I did a quick messy water coloring with my Distress Inks to color in the reindeer.  If you would like to see the process video, click here.  As always supplies are in the description box of video.
