Stalked Ya Til You Liked Me!

Hello The Rabbit Hole Designs fans!  I am back today with a super funny (or creepy?) card, showcasing the Beach Day and Sassy Sentiment stamp sets.

 

Here’s how I made the card:

  • stamp the images on Neenah solar white card stock and color the images in with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers (or any medium of your choice).
  • cut the images using Brother Scan N Cut 2.
  • to create the water, I used a scene building stamp.  I also used a clouds stencil to create the clouds on the background.
  • on another A2 size panel, use a die to cut the window.  Use an embossing folder to emboss this piece.
  • use a palm tree die to die-cut the coconut tree on smooth white card stock.  Color the pieces with Spectrum Noir markers.
  • stamp the sentiment from the Sassy Sentiments stamp set on a piece of black card stock with Versamark ink.  Sprinkle white embossing powder and heat-set using my heating tool.
  • assemble the card.
  • finish the design by adding the enamel dots on the coconut tree.

 

The Sassy Sentiments stamp set is one of my all-time favorites and when I saw the Beach Day stamp set, I knew I needed to create this card design.

Here’s a closer look:

 

I hope you like my card and got inspired.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below.  Have an amazing day and happy crafting!

Little Huggable Stamp & Little Critters Fri-Dies – June Release by CAS-ual Fridays

Hello, hello my crafty peeps!  I am joining the CAS-ual Fridays Ink Squad to bring you the Little Huggable Stamp Set and Little Critters Fri-Dies. It is the first day of the June release and I am so thrilled to be asked by Michele to guest-design this month. I have missed the ink squad so much and I am happy to announce that starting in July, I am once again part of the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps design team.

 

 

For my first project, I started out by stamping my images with Spectrum Noir Finesse Black Ink.  This is an alcohol-friendly ink and perfect to use with my Spectrum Noir TriBlend markers.  I die-cut the images using the Little Critters Fri-Dies.

 

 

The background was ink-blended with some distress oxide inks for some pop of color.  I also used a small star die from my stash to die-cut three windows on some white card stock.   I used fun foam to add dimension and stability, and adhered the die-cut panel on the ink-blended background.

 

 

I die-cut the word “hello” using the Sweet Friend Fri-Dies on some Bristol smooth white card stock.  I ink-blended this carefully with distress oxide inks and adhered this piece on the card front.  I finished my card design by adhering the critters and adding sparkling clear jewels on the card.  Here’s a closer look:

 

 

For my second project, I once again ink-blended an A2-size Bristol smooth white card stock with distress oxide inks.  I sprayed this with water and dabbed it with some paper towel for some added interest and texture.  I adhered this background on an A2 size card base.

 

I also die-cut two white panels using a border die from my stash and adhered these pieces with fun foam and liquid glue for some added dimension.  I die-cut the palm trees using another die from my stash on some Bristol smooth white card stock and colored it with distress oxide inks.  I adhered the pieces on the card front with foam and liquid adhesives.

 

 

I finished my design by adding the sentiment “Pooches Gracias” stamped with versamark ink and heat-set using my heating tool.  Here’s a closer look:

 

 

I hope you like my projects today.   How about some prizes??     Michele is giving away three (3) $20 gift codes.  All you have to do is:

You Make Life a Picnic with Newton’s Nook Designs

Hello my crafty peeps! I hope you are having a great week so far! I am back today with a summer-themed card showcasing the Woodland Picnic stamp set and coordinating dies, just released last week.  The stamp set and dies are now available for purchase at Newton’s Nook Designs .

Here’s my card:

I started with an A2 size Bristol smooth white card stock and used a die from my stash to die-cut the window.  I took the middle negative piece and the Sunscape Stencil to ink-blend the background with distress oxide inks.

 

I stamped the images on some Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Premium white card stock and colored the images in with my Spectrum Noir TriBlend markers.  I used the coordinating dies to die-cut the images.

The grass panels were die-cut using the Land Borders die set and some patterned paper.  The clouds were die-cut using some dies from my stash.

To finish my design, I stamped the tiny ants from the Newton’s Picnic stamp set on the grass panel and also stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black ink.  Here’s a closer look:

I absolutely ADORE the images on this stamp set, I can’t even pick a favorite.  This stamp set is so versatile you can use it for any season.

I hope you like my card today.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below.   Have a wonderful day and happy crafting!

You Make Me Jump For Joy and I Love ‘Roo cards with Kat scrappiness

Hello Kat Scrappiness fans!  I have some fun projects for you today showcasing A LOT of products available at the shop.

 

Before I start with the post, I just want you guys to know that there is a 20% site-wide sale going on and you can use the coupon code mentioned below.  Take advantage of this sale and get your favorite products while you can:

 

 

For my project today, I am showcasing the Hoppy For you stamp set, along with the Yellow Star Sprinkles, Pink Flower Sprinkles, Wood Grain Frame Die, Stitched Cloud Backdrop die and the Mandala Frame die.

 

I started out by stamping the images on Spectrum Noir Ulta Smooth Premium White card stock using Spectrum Noir Finesse Alcohol-Proof Black ink.  I colored the images in with my Spectrum Noir TriBlend alcohol markers.  I die-cut the images using my Scan N Cut machine.

 

 

I adhered some Pink Flower Sprinkles on the mommy Kangaroo and layered the baby kangaroo inside the mommy’s pouch with liquid and foam adhesive.

 

 

 

 

The A2 size panel was die-cut using the Stitched Cloud Backdrop die and ink blended with Bubblegum, Soft Lilac and Butter Ink using some blending brushes and my Clouds stencil die.  I know you can hardly see the clouds because of the shaker elements but It’s important to me to have all those details in creating my card.  I also die-cut the frame using the Wood Grain Frame Die.

 

 

I adhered some acetate sheet and foam adhesive on the Wood Gran Frame Die and added the Yellow Star Sprinkles with Fairy Dust confetti mix for my shaker element.

 

 

I die-cut some black card stock using the Stitched Flag die and stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink.  I sprinkled white embossing powder and heat-set this with my heating tool.  I finished my design by adhering the kangaroo on the front panel.  Here’s my card:

 

 

I always LOVE making shaker cards and with the new sprinkles and sequin mixes available at the shop, it’s hard not to make them all the time.  They are super fun to make!  Here’s a closer look:

 

 

For my next card, I also used the Mandala Frame die and created a very simple, white-on white card.  The “wreath” was die-cut using a die from Hero Arts that I bought from Kat Scrappiness years ago.  I layered the flowers I colored earlier with liquid and foam adhesive.

 

 

To finish my design, I used my white gel pen to add some interest and texture on the flowers.  Here’s a closer look:

 

 

I hope you got inspired today.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below.  Have an amazing day and happy crafting!

I started with an A2 size watercolor patterned paper and used the small cloud image from the Newton Hangs Out stamp set and stamped it all over the paper.  I adhered this piece onto an A2 size side-fold card base.

For our projects today, the design team is showcasing the Say Woof stamp set and the Woof Stencil:

Here’s my card:

I started with an A2-size Bristol smooth panel and ink blended this using my blending tools and distress oxide inks.  I sprayed the panel with some water and dabbed it with some paper towel to get the distress look.  I used the speech bubble die to die-cut the panel and stamped this piece with some Versamark ink and sprinkled white embossing powder, then heat-set with my heating tool.  To add more texture and interest, I used the Woof stencil and Moonstone glimmer paste.

The film strip was die-cut 3 times and I adhered them together to add some dimension.  I stamped and colored the dogs from the Fabulous Frenchies stamp set and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

To assemble the card, I adhered the front panel to a side-fold card base, then added the film strip with some liquid adhesive.  The dogs were adhered using foam adhesive.  Lastly, I added the speech bubble with some foam tape to make it stand out.

Here’s a closer look:

I made another card using the Say Woof stamp set and the Woof stencil.  Here’s what it looks like:

Don’t you just love the sentiment on this card?!  I know all dog-lovers will agree that “dog hair” is our glitter, haha!  This stamp set is another must-have!
