Watercolor Butterfly – Sizzix Handmade Card

Hi crafty friends! Welcome back to my happy place! I hope you’re having a wonderful and creative day.
For today I have a card made with a new die set from the latest release from Sizzix, called Sizzix Thinlits Die – Antique Doily and a beautiful stamp and die set called Sizzix Framelits Die w/Stamp – Wild Butterfly.
 
First, I prepared my card base from a kraft cardstock. I added a some white splatters all over it for more effect. Next, I prepared a smaller panel from watercolor cardstock. I stamped on it the butterfly in purple and pink Distress Ink.
After I stamped it I sprayed with a mini sprayer clean water all over it and I enjoyed the colors spreading. 
I waited for the panel to dry ad then I stamped the sentiment.
Next I die cut the doily and cut some pieces from it and glued them behind my small panel. I adhered it on the card base using craft foam, added a few gold sequins and my card was done.
Don’t forget that there is a new campaign, this time a colorful and fresh summer one and it’s called Kids Party Ideas!

Wild Butterflies – Sizzix Handmade Card

Hi crafty friends! Welcome back to my happy place! I hope you’re having a wonderful and creative day.
For today I have a card made with a new die set from the latest release from Sizzix, called Sizzix Thinlits Die – Moroccan Tile and a beautiful stamp and die set called Sizzix Framelits Die w/Stamp – Wild Butterfly.
First thing I stamped the butterfly 3 times on a white cardstock panel. For the first one I used purple and pink, for the second one I used yellow and tangerine and for the last butterfly I used turquoise and navy blue. All the inks are Distress inks that reacts with water. 
After I stamped the butterflies I sprayed with a mini sprayer clean water all over my panel hoping that the colors will spread. When I saw that nothing was happening I realized that the cardstock wasn’t watercolor. That’s ok! I didn’t want to throw away my work so I continued playing 🙂
To fill in the empty spaces I added some splatters using the inks from the butterflies. After everything dried I run the panel through my Big Shot machine using the Moroccan Tile die. Then, I die cut a few white cardstocks with the same die.
Next, I adhered everything on the panel and added some sentiments from a Create a Smile Stamps set white embossed on little black pieces of cardstock. 
I mounted the panel on a kraft card base and my card was done.
Don’t forget that there is a new campaign, this time a colorful and fresh summer one and it’s called Kids Party Ideas!
Katie Skilton created some amazing unicorn projects with instructions so you should definitely check it out!

Beautiful Day – Altenew Handmade Card

Hi crafty friends and welcome back to my happy space. Hope you’re having a wonderful day.
For today I have a new card showcasing the Beautiful Day Stamp Set from Altenew. 
I have a similar card blogged here, but that one was the second try. This one, with the Altenew set is my first attempt at this artsy looking card.
 
On a watercolor cardstock I stamped the outline flowers and leaves from the set using Distress Ink Chipped Sapphire and Evergreen Bough. Then, I stamped the solid stamps using Distress Ink Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers and Cracked Pistachio. 
After I was done stamping I sprayed with a mini sprayer clean water all over my panel and I let it spread. 
Next step was to stamp again the outline stamps using VersaFine Onyx Black Ink and to add black splatters all over the panel. 
Then, I stamped the sentiment in VersaMark and white heat embossed it on a black strip and adhered it to the panel. 
I glued a few silver sequins and my card was done.

Moroccan Tiles – Sizzix Handmade Card

Hi crafty friends! Welcome back to my blog! I hope you’re having a wonderful and creative day.
For today I have a card made with a new die set from the latest release from Sizzix, called Sizzix Thinlits Die – Moroccan Tile.
Such a gorgeous design and so versatile! You can make it the focal point of the card or you ca hide behind some flowers or stamped images for a bigger effect. 
For this card I use the die as the focal point and I die cut it from colored cardstock that can be used either for a masculine card or a feminine one.
First thing I die cut it from white cardstock 4 times and I glued them together for more dimension. Then, I die cut it once from light yellow cardstock and once from light grey cardstock.
On a white panel I glued the white frame die cut and then I filled out the open spaces of it with the colored tiles. I just glued them randomly trying to make it look pleasant to the eye.
Next I stamped a sentiment from Create a Smile Stamps in grey ink next to the die cut and I added a few clear sequins on the panel. 
The final step was to mount the panel on a dark grey cardstock and my card was done.

Have a lovely day!

Prehistoric Birthday – SugarPea Designs Handmade Card

Hi crafty friends! Welcome back to my blog! Hope you’re having a wonderful day.
For today I have a new card showcasing the Prehistoric Pals stamp set from SugarPea Designs. 
I made this card for the current challenge over at SugarPea Designs blog. This month is Mix It Up Challenge #33 and below you can see the sketch and/or the inspiration photo:

This time I chose the sketch for my card and I begun by die cutting a white panel with the largest stitched rectangle from Simon Says Stamp. 
Then, on a white cardstock, I stamped in Distress Ink Black Soot the images for my card. I colored them with Nuvo markers in some bright and happy colors and fussy cut them with my scissors.
Next, I die cut a white circle using dies from Sizzix and I added color using the ink blending technique. I chose Chipped Sapphire for a night sky so it would fit with the sentiment and the card idea. I die cut another white circle and I run it through my Big Shot using a hills die set from My Favorite Things. I colored the hills with Distress Ink Mowed Lawn and glued them to the night sky circle.

 

Next, I stamped the sentiment on the bottom of my white panel. 
Then I started adhering everything to my panel. I mounted the circle on it and the images on the circle. To complete the sketch I drawn a curved line on the top of my panel and glued 3 triangles cut with Sizzix dies (links to the products used down below). 
And my card is all done and pretty.

Creative Friends – Create a Smile Stamps Handmade Card

Hi crafty friends and welcome back to my crafty space. I’m back with a new card using quite a few of the amazing Create a Smile stamps 🙂
As I previously said in another post, I love to watch Laura Bassen’s videos and I recently saw one with gorgeous, colorful flowers on a blue navy cardstock and I fell in love with it. So I decided to try to make one using different flower sets from Create a Smile.
You can find my post over at Create a Smile Stamps blog.
 
First, I die cut a blue navy panel using the largest stitched rectangle die and I stamped the sentiment in the center using VersaMark ink and white embossing powder.
Next, I stamped in VersaMark and white heat embossed all the flowers and leaves on different colored cardstocks. This part was different than Laura Bassen’s one cause she used solid stamps, so I tried to adapt mine using outline stamps.
After I stamped and embossed the images I started fussy cut them with my scissors. 
Next, to give them the ombre look I added some Distress Inks using the ink blending technique. 
Then, after I arranged the elements on my card and I was happy with the placement, I glued some of them directly on the panel and I mounted a few using foam tape for a little dimension. 
Next, I cut off all the extra that was outside of my panel and I mounted it on a white card base. 
I added a few clear droplets and my card was done.
Don’t be afraid to try and make cards that you see online and you love. If you don’t have the exact products just use what you have and make it work 😉 
And the most important thing, don’t forget to GIVE CREDIT to the crafter who made the card that inspired you.
 
I hope you like my card and you got inspired!

Have a lovely day!
