2 Clean and Simple Birthday Cards

 Hi friends. Alanna back on the blog with you today with a pair of clean and simple birthday cards.

To get started, I took the Floral Butterfly stamp from Studio Light and stamped it directly onto white A2 notecards with the Sugar Plum Shimmer Pearlescent ink. The stamp doesn't cover an entire A2 card front so I stamped it once and then moved it down so it would just overlap a bit and stamped the rest of my card panels.

Note that it looks like this set is no longer available from Topflight Stamps, but Studio Light has the Grunge Butterflies set that is very similar. 

After my card base was stamped, I took the Best Birthday Ever set from Visible Image and stamped the happy birthday sentiment with Versafine Claire Nocturne ink onto white card stock. I trimmed them down and then matted them onto some silver shine card stock. I added those to the cards covering up the area where my previous stamping had overlapped.

I finished off the cards by adding in some gems,

Visible Image Mother's Day Card


Hello friends! Ericka from Strangely Creative here and today I have a Mother's Day card using the Visible Image Golden Daffodils set along with the Grunge Tone stamp. For my background, I used a left over paper I made from cleaning off my brayer while making gel prints with PaperArtsy Fresco Paints.  I love saving these scraps, as they often make beautiful backgrounds. 

I started by stamping the daffodil and clear embossed it. I colored up the flower with some colored pencils adding some shading. I stamped the Grunge Tone in some Twilight PaperArtsy Fresco Paint and added it around my background.

I finished my card with the sentiment in the Golden Daffodils set. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a great weekend!

Spring Chickens

    Hi Everyone,

Cornelia here today. Our theme this week is spring. And what's better than flowers and some spring chicks!
I used a background from my stash, that I made with a gel plate and a stencil from AALL&Create. I stamped the chicks onto scrap paper and colored them with alcohol ink markers. Stamped the chicks and flowers onto the background and added the cut out chicks. I die cut my card and wanted to mount it onto a solid colored background, but did't like the way it looked. So I sponged the remining frame on darker colors and glued it all onto a white card base. Added some Washi tape instead of a sentiment.

I hope you liked this. Thanks for visiting. 
See you next week with more Topflight Stamps inspiration.

And here are the stamp supplies I used:

AALL & Create - Boy MOM

Hello Crafties, Mary Key here and this week along with my team members is Mother's Day/Spring. I am going to feature AAll & Create #135 Bricks & Bubbles, #107 Components Stencil, #935 Boy Mom along with #23 Vivre by Janet Klein.

I will be using white cardstock for my base and stamp the image from #935 Boy Mom on watercolor paper. 

First I will start adding colors using #107 Components Stencil with a blending brush.

Then next I use #135 Bricks & Bubbles Stencil with a blending brush.

Next, I use a piece of washi tape #23 Vivre for my bottom.

Next, I stamp my image #935 Boy Mom and watercolor my image and then fussy cut it.

Here is my final card using a peachy color cardstock to finish my card along with the sentiment from #935 Boy Mom. This was fun to make. Stencils are fun to use in so many ways to blending some color or paste to using a gel plate and some acrylic colors to watercolor and inks.

Thank you for stopping by.

Spring Lily Card

 Greetings! It's Tuesday so you've got Kathi here to share a project with you. This week my TFS teammates and I are focusing on Spring. I'm hopeful that we'll soon see warmer and drier weather here in the Northeast!

Here's my card created with the L is for Lily Unmounted Rubber Stamp 599 by Crafty Individuals.

Nocturne VersaFine Clair Ink by Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko was used to ink and stamp the L is for Lily Unmounted Rubber Stamp 599 by Crafty Individuals. Detail Gold embossing powder was poured onto the image panel, the excess was dumped, and the image was heat set.

Watercolor pens were used to watercolor the image and the entire image panel. A scissors blade was used to distress the edges which were then sanded back further to reveal more white around the edges. 

A piece of patterned paper from the Ink Drops - Candy 6x6 Patterned Paper Pad by Craft Consortium was trimmed to 4.25" x 6" to form the card front. The edge of the Nocturne VersaFine Clair Inkpad by Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko was dragged along the edge of the patterned paper card front. All four edges of the paper were pulled through a pile of Detail Gold embossing powder and heat set. 

The image panel was adhered to the card front, then adhered to an A6 white card.

Emboss, Stamp & Die Cut all with one Set

 Hello friends. Alanna here on the blog today with you. For my card today, I am using the new Happy Butterflies Emboss, Stamp & Die set from Crafter's Companion. Crafter's Companion just came out with three designs of these emboss, stamp & die sets. You can find all three of them here. And for just $14.99, these are a real bargain.

To get started, I die cut the inner butterfly frame die from some aqua card stock. I then matched it up with the coordinating embossing folder which was super easy to do. After this was embossed, I took some spray stain and sprayed the panel just a bit. I added this to a white notecard with foam tape. My card measures about 6.5 x 4.5 inches.

I then die cut a rectangle using the die included in the set from the same aqua card stock. I matted it onto some white card stock and then stamped the sentiment that is included in this set with the Tropic Blue Shimmer Pearlescent ink from Spectrum Noir.

I finished off the card by rounding each of the corners of my card base and by adding in some sparkle gems.

PaperArtsy Gel Press Card


Hello crafty friends! Ericka from Strangely Creative here and I hope you had a chance to celebrate with us last week. This week I have a mixed media gel press card I made using some PaperArtsy Fresco Paint along with the PaperArtsy Tracy Scott PS418 Stencil. 

I started out by placing PaperArtsy Fresco Paint in Sunshine, Flamingo, and Cerise on my Gel Press Plate. After I pulled my print, I used the PaperArtsy Tracy Scott PS418 Stencil with a Posca Pen and traced the shapes and colored them in. I used a white pen to add fun details around the floral image. 

I then added some AALL & Create Washi Tape #3 to the corners of my card along with a hand drawn border. I finished my card with a sentiment heat embossed on vellum from the PaperArtsy Tracy Scott 28 set.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
