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.

Happy Mother’s Day with the Rabbit Hole Designs

Hello The Rabbit Hole Designs fans!  It’s Mother’s Day and I hope everyone’s celebrating this day with their loved ones.  For today’s card, I am showcasing the We Are Family stamp set:

 

Here’s how I made the card:

  • stamp the images on some Neenah classic crest solar white card stock and color it in with alcohol markers (or any medium of your choice).
  • I used a small stamp set from my stash to create the grassy hill, inking it up using my make-up brushes and some Lawn Fawn Celery ink.
  • I also stamped the clouds with Memento Desert Sand ink and colored them with alcohol markers.
  • I used a small “Mom” die to die-cut the background.  I also die-cut a few more and layered them together to make the word “Mom” stand out on the card.

Have a Grande Day with Miss Ink Stamps

It’s week 5 guest-designing for Miss Ink Stamps and for today’s card, I am showcasing the Java Joes stamp set and my Spectrum Noir TriBlend markers.  Here’s what the stamp set look like:

 

javajoes_540x

 

I started by stamping my images on some Neenah classic crest 110 lb. solar white card stock  with Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink (this is an alcohol-friendly ink).  I colored my images in with my Spectrum Noir TriBlend Markers.   I used my make-up brushes with my Clouds stencil to add the clouds on the background.  I masked the bottom and used my make-up brushes again to add the color to make it look like grass.   I added the “pebble stones” by drawing them using the Brown Grey Blend Triblend Markers.

Here’s a closer look at my card:

I hope you like my card today!  Next Saturday will be my last post for Miss Ink Stamps.  Have a great day and happy crafting!

Sorry I was so Crabby

Hello The Rabbit Hole Designs fans!  I am back today to share another clean and simple card (“CAS”), showcasing the ever-classy, Sofishticated stamp set by the Rabbit Hole Designs.  Here’s what it looks like:

Here’s is my card:

TRHDSofishticated2A

Card recipe:

  • stamp the crab image on some Neenah classic crest solar white card stock and color him in with alcohol markers (or any medium of your choice).
  • use some painter’s tape to mask the spaces between the crab.
  • use the waves stencil with the make-up brush to color in some waves (avoiding the crab image if at all possible).  The ink that I used here is so light that I didn’t really have to mask the image itself.

  • die-cut the “sorry” sentiment using a die from my stash.  Adhere this piece with some liquid adhesive
  • stamp the sentiment “I was so crabby” using Versafine Onyx black in and the card is all finished.  Simple and classy!

Here’s a closer look:

I have been really loving some clean and simple designs lately!  I hope you do as well.  I know a lot of my subscribers are beginners and this is one simple card you can mask-produce.   I hope you like my project today.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below.  Have a nice day and happy crafting!
