New Years Card - Glimmer Paste


Welcome back everyone! I'm sharing some cards I created using the December 2018 Subscription box from the Hedgehog Hollow featuring Pretty Pink Posh. I posted an unboxing video earlier this week that you can check HERE in case you missed it.

I also have a video tutorial for my card today that you can view down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.

CARD DETAILS

I knew the second I saw the stencil I was going to be digging out my glimmer paste. Before I crack open the jar, I need to create my background. I'm starting with Fog Cardstock from Simon Says Stamp and ink blending Hickory Smoke and Black Soot Distress Oxide inks. I'm making sure to leave a highlight area in the center. 


Next, I attach my stencil to the ink blended cardstock with some Purple tape to hold it in place. I'm applying the paste using a palette knife and the Golden Crystal Glimmer Paste from Tonic Studios. It's best to do this over a mat like the Easy Clean Mat so you don't get glimmer paste on your main work surface. Once I applied the glimmer paste, I wipe my tool and mat down quickly with a baby wipe and wash the stencil off in the sink. Do not let the paste sit on the stencil or it will be impossible to get off once dried.


I die cut the Happy New Year Script die from the Mirror cardstock that is included in the kit. I also die cut 3 more of the script from white cardstock and layered the sentiment. I use Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive to attach this sentiment to the front of my cardstock and add a couple acrylix blocks to the top to help push it down onto the textured background. Let that sit for a few minutes and it will be perfect!


To finish off the card, I'm going to add some of the sequins which was also included in the kit. 

For the next card pictured below, I stamped the champagne glasses onto white cardstock and colored with copic markers. This stamp set is in the kit and also includes the coordinating die. You really get a good deal on this subscription box! 

I die cut out a large star from the Stitching Stars die from Pretty Pink Posh (out of my stash) and heat embossed the sentiment at the bottom. I lined the back of the panel with acetate and attached to white glitter cardstock using foam tape. 


Below is another example of the stencil but this time I started with Cornflower cardstock from Simon Says Stamp. I ink blended Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot Distress Inks and added Silver Gem Glimmer Paste.



The Happy New Year Script die is cut from white cardstock and adhered to the front panel. For a little finishing touch, I added Silver Moondust Nuvo Glitter Drops

I hope you enjoyed today's inspiration. Be sure to head over and pick up your December 2018 subscription box from the Hedgehog Hollow. The Pretty Pink Posh Happy New Year stamp set and Scripty die can only be fond in the subscription boxes!

You Are Loved - Simon Says Stamp Release

Welcome back everyone! I'm excited to share with you a brand new stamp set from the You Are Loved Release from Simon Says Stamp. This stamp set is called Moments of Grace.

VIDEO DETAILS

I have an accompanying video that you can watch down below or HERE on my Youtube Channel.


CARD DETAILS

While these are probably the least favorite card to make, it's also the best time to give a card to show you care. This stamp set, Moments of Grace, is a must have in your stamp collection. It is packed with beautiful, heartfelt sentiments to express your condolences. 

I kept the card soft and simple in design. I ink blended a panel of Bristol Smooth cardstock with Antique Linen, Peacock Feathers and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide ink. 


Using white glitter cardstock from Simon Says Stamp, I die cut the Debra die and trimmed out the design. Then attached it to to my 3 3/4" x 5" ink blended panel using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive. I attached my panel to an A2 size cardbase.

I chose one of the sentiments from the Moments of Grace stamp set and stamped on white cardstock with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink. Next, I trimmed it down using the Sentiment Label die. I attached the sentiment strip to the front of the card with foam tape and embellished with the Assorted Moonshine Sequins Mix.

I created one more card using the Moments of Grace stamp set. For the card pictured below, I ink blended Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide onto Bristol Smooth cardstock. Then diecut using a Circle Stackables die and added to a white A2 size cardbase.


I attached a butterfly that I diecut from Champagne Glitter cardstock using the Stitching Butterflies die. I also die cut out of black cardstock the Big Friend die and the shadow layer in Vellum. Using the Moments of Grace stamp set, I added the sentiment underneath my Friend die cut. I finished off the card by adding some sequins from the Assorted Moonshine mix and applied Aqua Simmer pen to the friend die cut.

Snowflakes Clean and Simple



We don't need to always get all crazy with our crafting supplies to make a gorgeous card. Sometimes clean and simple is just as effective.

My card today is using this stunning snowflake stamp set from the Gina K Designs Fruit of the Season Stamp TV kit. My snowflake is heat embossed in Gold embossing powder onto white cardstock. Then I used the coordinating die to cut it out. 


For the top panel, I used a piece of white woodgrain cardstock and sprayed with Glitter Dust Gold Spray. This panel is added to an A2 size white cardstock base using foam tape.


My diecut snowflake is added to the front of the card using the NEW Gina K Designs Foams squares. These are so easy to use and are the perfect size! You can add just one layer to your items for a little dimension or double it up.



I heat embossed the sentiment in white embossing powder onto Dusty Rose cardstock and added to the center of my snowflake with Gina's Foam Squares.

To finish off the card, I added a few Ivory Jewels from Pretty Pink Posh using Connect Glue and a jewel picker.

CARD DETAILS

My project today is creating a Scalloped Box Pop up card with the Reindeer Friends stamp set. The critters over at Pretty Pink Posh are always so adorable but I have been in love with these reindeer since they were released. 


I stamped my reindeer onto Neenah Solar White cardstock with MFT Extreme Black Ink. Then colored with my copic markers and used the coordinating die to cut them out. 

My box is created using the Scallop Box Pop Up card die with Chili Red cardstock. I decorated the panels with patterned paper from the Jolly paper pack from Pink & Main and Really Rainbow paper pack from Lawn Fawn. 

To adhere my reindeer, I attached them to strips of acetate using Scor Tape. That way I wasn't hiding any part of the critters and some even look like they are jumping through the air!


My sentiment comes from the Holiday Greetings stamp set which has such a great variety of beautiful sentiments! 

The Scallop Box card folds up perfectly to fit into an A2 size envelope. What a treat it'll be when someone opens the envelope and this box card pops up with these adorable reindeer!

I hope you enjoyed today's inspiration! Be sure to head to the Pretty Pink Posh website to start shopping!

Mandala Stencil Background with MFT


Welcome everyone! Today I'm sharing a card created with Nuvo paste and stencils!

I actually created this background a couple weekends ago but it didn't work for a project I was working on so I set it aside. Well, it called to me today. I used the Captivating Mandala stencil from My Favorite Things and applied Moonstone Glimmer paste over it onto Blue Jay cardstock. This glimmer paste takes on such a different look when applied to dark cardstock! 


Once the panel has dried, I trimmed it down to 4 x 5 1/4" and attached to a white A2 size cardsbase.


My sentiment is stamped onto white cardstock using the Ready Set Snow stamp set and MFT Extreme Black Ink. I die cut the sentiment with the Sentiment Labels die from Simon Says Stamp and attached to the center of the card with foam tape for dimension.

This card was actually quite easy to put together. The longest part was the dry time and that didn't even take that long. Just think of the stunning Christmas cards you could send out this year using this style.

Hope you enjoyed todays card! Supplies listed below.

It's one of the greatest times of the year and I am so thrilled to be celebrating with Simon Says Stamp Diecember! I have a few projects to share PLUS videos showcasing the new dies so be sure to stick around! All the supplies will be listed at the end of the post.

Since I'm sharing two projects in this post, I'm going to keep short on the details so be sure to watch the videos.


CARD DETAILS

My background is ink blending with Distress Inks. This is a new combination for me and I adore how it turned out. I used Scattered Straw, Victorian Velvet, Seedless Preserve and Chipped Sapphire.  I flicked on Perfect Pearls for snow and sprayed the entire ink blended background with Glitter Dust


I also paired this with the Stitched Snowflakes that were released last year. My sentiment was created using the Merry die and Tiny Words Christmas sets. 


My second card is quite cheerful! How fun is this Picture Book Panda?!

VIDEO DETAILS

You can view the video down below or HERE on my Youtube Channel.


CARD DETAILS

I kept with the traditional black/white panda but would look so adorable in a light purple or pink.


I used the Nested Heart die to create a window on the front of my card for the panda to peek through. Using the Really Rainbow paper pack makes this such a cheerful card! 


My sentiment comes from the Besties stamp set and coordinating die

Mama Elephant Yeti Scene

Welcome back everyone! I just can't get over this adorable Yeti from Mama Elephant. My card today is creating a winter night time scene.

CARD DETAILS

I'm using the stamp set Me & My Yeti from Mama Elephant. The first thing I do is create a mask for my moon. I used the Stackable Circles die and Simon Says Stamp Masking paper. I apply my circle mask to a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock measuring 4" x 5 1/4". Next, I ink blend Stormy Sky, Mermaid Lagoon, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot Distress ink. I build up my color keeping the darkest colors to the outside. Then I remove the mask and lightly go over the moon with Stormy Sky Distress Ink. To finish off the sky, I flick on some white paint with a paint brush for a snowy sky effect and spritz with Shimmer Spritz.



My images are stamped onto Neenah White carstock with MFT Extreme Black Ink then colored with copic markers. I like using the stippling technique for this which means I'm just adding dots to add color to my image. This also gives the look of texture and I think is a really fun look!


I also stamped the banner from Sentiments From a Yeti stamp set and used the coordinating die to cut it out. I added a hill to my sky background using a Stitched Hillside Die and White Glitter cardstock.  I tucked my trees behind the hill and added my Yeti to the front with foam tape. I layered my panel with white cardstock and added to a cardbase I created with Blue Denim Cardstock. For a little more sparkle, I added a Nuvo Shimmer Pen to the stars and then covered the stars with Crystalline Drops from Gina K Designs.

How sweet is it with the Yeti holding that banner?!
