Twice Is Nice-Goha Digital Stamps

March already? It’s hard to believe that spring is just around the corner but I am hoping that this cute little bird can help us to believe. This bird digital stamp is from the Goha Digital Stamps Blog.

I loved this image so much that I coloured it twice so that I could make a card and a tag in time for Easter!

Here is the tag.

And here is the card. I decided to make it an easel style card.

Here is a side view of the easel card.

Here is the group.

Mushroom-Stamprints

I thought I would try something a little different with my mushroom image from Stamprints. I printed my image as usual n regular printer paper but I decided to use my pearlescent water colour paints to colour the image.

I cut the image out with an oval metal die run through my Cuttlebug. I used Recollections card stock for a base and for the plain kraft card stock layered oval. The patterned paper was layered over the base and the 2 oval layers were placed on top with a small paper embellishment. The final project seemed to be missing something so I ransacked searched my boxes of miscellaneous junk embellishments to find this cute wooden “Happy”. I used some Distress Stain to colour match it.

Once the wood was dry I attached it with some 3D tape. Here is the completed project! I think it would make a cute new home card but it suited for most “Happy” occasions.

A Horror-ific Birthday!

* This post contains affiliate links 😊

Have I ever shared my love of Kindred Stamps with you? I am a huge pop culture lover and their stamps fulfil my need for all things nerdy! Over the Winter break I coloured numerous images with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.

I purchased and downloaded the digital image from Kindred Stamps and used the newer stamp set “The Horror” for the sentiments.

My youngest son is obsessed with a certain creepy clown although he hasn’t actually seen the movie this character is inspired by (& likely won’t until he is an adult😂). This is the birthday card that I have made for him even though his birthday is a few months off yet.

I thought that this creepy guy would suit some old DCWV patterned cardstock that I had in my stash, stock. I stamped the sentiment with CTMH ink and Stazon red ink. I added the images with a few pop dots for dimension.

Here is the completed card!

I also whipped together a quick Valentine using the same 2 sets!

As you can see I also coloured a few other characters, not quite sure where they will take me yet but I will share the final project when completed.

Christmas Mouse-Stamprints

Wow! It has been a while but I am back with a new project using an adorable image from Stamprints. This image is called Christmas Mouse and is found at Stamprints Etsy or check it out here on the Stamprints Blog.

I coloured the mouse image with Spectrum Noir markers. The background paper & cardstock is from Recollections. I decided to make a shaker style card and used some miscellaneous sequins and snowflake confetti. The believe sticker was in my December SCT Sampler and was provided by SCT.

Here is the whole card!

Pumpkin Time-Stamprints

For my October creation using Stamprints images I have chosen the pumpkin. This image is cute and works perfectly for Thanksgiving, Halloween or just autumn in general.

You can find this image at Stamprints Etsy. You can see more wonderful images and projects on the Stamprints Blog.

I started by printing the image and colouring it with my Prismacolor pencils. I tried to layer the colours to give the pumpkin some depth.

I decided to make this card a versatile card by just putting a cute “Happy” diecut. I think it could be used for Thanksgiving or Halloween.

I found some burlap style paper that I was excited to incorporate into my autumn-ish project! Here is the completed card.

Thanks for looking!

Shrinky Dink Earrings!

My boys and I are really into pop culture! I think that this shared love of pop culture puts me in the parenting win column but the I realized that I have at least one fail as a parent! This was realized tonight when my youngest asked me what I was making. My boys often see me creating projects for various design teams, gifts or for personal use but I guess I have never made anything with Shinky Dinks in front of them! I combined my love of pop culture, making jewelry and colouring to make Shrinky Dink earrings!!

I started by stamping my chosen Kindred Stamps onto Shrinky Dink film with my Momento ink. I let it dry for a few minutes and then coloured my images with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. Once my colouring was dry I cut out the stamped image and left a bit of space at the top so that I could punch a hole into the plastic. That would be where I attach the earring hook or jump ring if used. I then used my heat gun to shrink.

The weird thing with Shrinky Dinks is that they always look bad before they look good! The above picture is during the shrinking process. Notice it looks twisted and not very nice. After heating a little longer you get the finished product.

Here is a picture of the Shrinky Dinks before and after the shrinking process.

You will notice that after shrinking the colours look a bit more concentrated so keep that in mind when choosing your colours.

This particular stamp shrinks to a nice size to be used as earrings or a necklace pendant.

Here are the completed earrings! I love how this turned out and now I have a sweet pair of earrings to wear in October. 😊

Products used:

Clear Shrinky Dink plastic

Momento ink pad

Spectrum Noir markers available at Scrapbook.com (affiliate link)

Lazy Days & Summer Rays -Stick it Down

I have been asked to guest design for the Stick it Down Team this month.

I know summer is winding down for most of us but there are a few days left to enjoy. I made this card as an ode to summer!

This is the design sketch that I was given to work with. The first thing that I noticed is the eye catching pieces that are positioned in a triangular position. This is a quite popular design in card making and scrapbooking. It has a way of drawing the eye.

Here is my interpretation of the above sketch. I hope you enjoy it and also that you enjoy these last few precious days of summer.

Supplies used in the creation of this card are:

Doodle Bug Design– Sweet Summer Collection paper, cardstock, doodle-pops 3D sticker, Icon stickers (beach ball & ice cream)

Pinkfresh Studio– emphemera (last days & summer rays), enamel dots

These were all products that I received in my July SCT Sampler.
