Hey, everyone! It’s Saturday and that means it’s time for another Saturday Stamp Day card and video. In this week’s video, I’m making a pastel ice cream cart card (ha!) with the Served Up stamp set from Create A Smile Stamps. This stamp set is simply adorable and I love how many options there are with the different sundaes, cupcakes, coffee and other delicious goodies.

You probably know by now that I’m trying to improve my Copic coloring skills. That’s why I have been coloring more and more in my recent videos. I wanted to mention that Kit and Clowder offers a free mini online class on the basis of coloring with markers. You can check it out by clicking HERE. I signed up for it, but I still have to check out the classroom. The description looks really nice so I’m looking forward to learning new things!

ssd-hippoI started out by stamping the ice cream cart and hippo image on Copic friendly card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Like I mentioned in the video, I used the Mini MISTI tool to stamp the image but you could also use a regular acrylic block. I did some simple Copic coloring with soft hues.

Since the image is quite large already, I didn’t really need to add a bunch more to my card after coloring. I did adhere a small strip of patterned paper from the Sorbet Collection from Avery Elle. Don’t you just love the fact that the name of this paper pad collection matches with the whole ice cream feeling to this card? ūüôā I created my own colored card stock with a BG11 Copic marker.

IMG_1124My Versamark ink pad is all dried up so I needed to get a new one. This time I used the Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad from Wow. You all know how much I adore Wow products (I’ve been using their products for years!), so obviously I think this pad is brilliant. I embossed my sentiment with my favorite white embossing powder from Wow. Finally, I finished off my card with a little bit of shimmer and shine. Because that’s my favorite way to end a video, ha! ūüôā

That’s it for now. Thank you so much for watching my video and for reading my post. See you soon! Xo

Happy Saturday, friends! Today is an extra special day because this month is filled with MISTI May-nia.¬†Iliana, from¬†My Sweet Petunia, inventor of the MISTI is giving away a Mini MISTI every day in May. Isn’t that just amazing? The best part is that I get to give one away! You can find the giveaway details below.

In today’s Saturday Stamp Day video I used the Rooting For You set from Lawn Fawn along with the Mini MISTI tool to create a super fun and quick shaker card.

First, I positioned the solid layers of the turnip, carrot and beet on my paper with the Mini MISTI tool from My Sweet Petunia. This way I could stamp those layers really fast! In case the first layer didn’t stamp that well, I could have just inked up the stamp again and stamp my image¬†one more time since it’s still in the exact same position. After I finished my first layer, I did the exact same thing using the other stamps. I could have easily mass produced this card but since I didn’t have that much time, I only made one card. It could be really fun, though! ūüôā

It has been a while since I created a sequin shaker. I used the little garden tag from the Rooting for You die cut set from Lawn Fawn as my base. Then, I mixed different sequins in a little bowl and I grabbed some plastic sheets from We R Memory Keepers. After folding it in two to create a nice crease, I fused two lines so that the top was still open. This way I could easily fill up my sequin shaker. Finally, I fused the top and then my teeny tiny shakers were finished! I finished off my card with some cute patterned paper and with some sequins that match with the sequin shaker! ūüôā

That’s it for now. Thanks for stopping by! xo

Happy Saturday everybody! I hope you’re having a nice weekend. Unfortunately for me, this is the last weekend of my spring break so¬†college will be kicking off again on Monday. Hopefully I will be able to post videos more frequently because I had a lot of fun making more videos for you again! We’ll see how it goes and I will keep you updated. ūüôā

In today’s video I am creating a cute tri fold/pop-up card featuring the adorable Rooting for You set from Lawn Fawn.

When I first saw this stamp set, I never thought I would need it that much. I thought it was cute but I didn’t buy it. Instead I got some other Lawn Fawn goodies. However, after a while the Rooting for You set started popping up in my head and I just couldn’t forget about vegetables and their cute smiley faces. I know. It sounds crazy, right? So since I really couldn’t forget about it, I went ahead and ordered it and oh boy, I am so glad I did that!

rooting-fullObviously I started out by stamping the vegetables from the Rooting For You set from Lawn Fawn. Eek! I had so much fun inking up these veggies and customizing them with the smiley faces. I used several inks from The Ton to ink up my fun veggie pals. Next, I die cut them with the coordinating dies. However, you could just fussy cut them. After adhering the leaves to the vegetables with Tombow Mono Multi Glue, I moved on to the next part of my card!

rooting-closeupI wanted to create a fun trifold card so I had to do some measuring and scoring. After wasting a lot of card stock, I came up with the measurements that work. Simply cut a piece of white card stock slightly larger than¬†10¬Ĺ inch wide¬†by 5¬Ĺ inch tall. Then, I scored this card stock at 3,¬†5/8¬†inch and at 7, 1/8. After folding the scored lines, I got a perfect trifold card. Next, I die cut a circle using the Circle Stackables dies from Lawn Fawn. I traced that shape and die cut it again out of some masking paper.

rooting-foldAfter adhering the mask, I went ahead and created a blended scene with Distress Ink. For the sky I used Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean. For the soil I used Antique Linen and Vintage Photo. I was really surprised at how good I did with the ink blending. Normally, I never seem to achieve a soft blended look. However, this time I put really light pressure on the tool and I used a small amount of ink. I guess that’s the trick! I wanted the vegetables to kind of pop up, so I cut three small slits so I could tuck in all of the veggies. I used a bit of Tombow Mono Adhesive to make sure they won’t fall out.¬†To finish off my card, I stamped and die cut the watering can from the Rooting For You stamp set and on the inside of the card, I stamped a sentiment with Soft Garnet ink from The Ton.

That’s it for now! I hope you enjoyed this video. Please let me know if you have any questions! I hope to see you soon! ūüôā xo
