I am so IN-LOVE with this stamp set.  I am a dog/pet lover and when I saw this set, my heart just melted!   If hubby and I only have about about 5 acres of land, we will definitely own a dozen of dogs, 4 cats, a couple of chickens, a pigmy Llama, some guinea pigs and a Cockatoo.  Haha!   You can never have too much happy, indeed!

How I made the card:

  • stamp the images on Neenah solar white card stock and color the images in with alcohol markers.  I used my Spectrum Noir TriBlend markers and Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.
  • use my “handmade stencil” die-cut from the Sky Borders die to add the sky with some make-up brushes and light blue ink.

  • use another stencil from my stash to add the grass with some Mowed Lawn distress oxide ink.
  • stamp the sentiment on the card with some black ink.
  • color some card stock using the Spectrum Noir Orange Blend TriBlend markers and die-cut the word Happy from the die-set.
  • adhere this piece on the card with some liquid glue.
  • finish the design by adding some red hearts.

Hang in There – Clean & Simple Card with The Rabbit Hole Designs

Hello The Rabbit Hole Designs fans!  For the past few months, I have been making a lot of very-detailed handmade cards with scenes up the wazoo and I figured sometimes I just need a break from that and create some clean and simple (CAS) cards.  After all, less is more, right?!

For today’s project, I am showcasing the We are Family stamp set.

Here’s my card:

TRHDHangInThereKite1A

Here’s how I made the card:

  • Stamp the kite image on smooth white card stock and color the images in with Copic markers (or any medium of your choice).
  • Die-cut the image with an electronic die-cutting machine or fussy cut with scissors.  I used my Brother Scan N Cut 2.
  • Cut an A2 size piece of smooth white card stock and use the Kites Embossing folder to dry-emboss the background.
  • Die-cut the “Hang In There” sentiment on some black card stock. Die-cut the same on some fun foam and adhere this piece on the black card stock.
  • Adhere the sentiment on the embossed background.
  • Adhere the kite with some liquid adhesive.
  • Finish the design by using Sakura white gel pen to add some lines and dot to the kite.

Here’s a closer look:

This card is super simple, but I really love how it turned out.   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!

  • die-cut the image using the coordinating dies.
  • cut an A2 size of Bristol smooth white card stock and ink up the background with different distress oxide inks.

For my second project, I created a one-layer card using the Mother’s Day mini stamp set and some images from the Cottage Garden stamp set, with some pastel-color inks.

NNDMothersDay1A

I added glossy accents to the flower to give it a little shine and dimension.  I love creating backgrounds using small stamp sets.
