Hey crafty friends! This month I am the Designer in the Spotlight at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog. Yay! πŸ˜„

Are you ready for a new challenge? I sure am! This week’s challenge is Cute. I decided to create a card using the Simon Says Stamp Dog & Cat Dress Up Stamp Set from their brand new Fresh Bloom Collection. Since I don’t own the dies of this stamp set, I decided to get creative with some masking, ink blending AND stenciling! πŸ’›

Make sure to watch the video below to see how I made this cute card.

First, I used Simon Says Stamp Masking Paper Sheets and a circle die from Lawn Fawn to create my mask. Then, I created an ombrΓ© effect with the Squeezed Lemonade and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Inks. I love how smooth and easy it is to create blended backgrounds with these ink pads.

I grabbed the Falling Stars Stencil from Simon Says Stamp and created green stars with Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Ink. Afterwards, I added sparkle using Tonic Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer Paste.

Since I didn’t have the dies of the Simon Says Stamp Dog & Cat Dress Up Stamp Set, I had to get creative with masking paper. I stamped the bow tie and party hat first, covered it up with masking paper and then stamped the dog. When masking, always stamp the images you want on the front first.

After coloring the images, I finished up the card with a bit of sparkle here and there. Like always, I used a Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Pen and a coat of Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze. Finally, I adhered Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins using the Tonic Nuvo Smooth Precision Glue Pen. πŸ˜„

Happy Saturday, friends. I hope you’re doing well! Unfortunately, I’m not feeling great. I have a massive cold, my throat aches and my legs feel extremely heavy and painful. πŸ˜”πŸ€§ I’m bummed because I was looking forward to going shopping this weekend but I don’t think that’ll happen. Sigh. However, I think I’ll be making some cards instead!

In today’s video I’m creating two birthday cards with the Super Dog Stamp Set from My Favorite Things along with their Radiating Rays Stencil and Distress Oxide Ink.

First, I ink blended two background with the Radiating Rays Stencil from My Favorite Things. I created two different color schemes. For the blue card, I used: Tumbled Glass, Faded Jeans and Black Soot. For the pink/purple card, I used: Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet and Black Soot. I went back and forth with the colors to create a nice and effortless blend.

Next, I colored two of the dogs, some stars and lightning bolts from the Super Dog Stamp Set from My Favorite Things. I added sparkle and dimension with a Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen and a coat of Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze.

Afterwards, I did some heat embossing for the sentiment pieces. I stamped the images using the WOW! Embossing Pad and then sprinkled on WOW! Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder. To finish off the card, I applied Tonic Nuvo Drops in White Blizzard and Midnight Sky. πŸ’«

Hi friends! It’s Friday and I’m getting ready for a relaxing weekend filled with lots of card making. πŸ˜„ Today I’m part of the Heffy Doodle Winter Release Blog Hop. More information about the blog hop and GIVEAWAY can be found below.

In this video I’ll be showing you how to create a green gradient background with Heffy Doodle’s brand new Crosswalk stencil and the super fun Prehistorical Pals set

First, I created a green gradient background with the Crosswalk stencil. I used Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide inks. This time I also added some water splatters. I simply sprayed some water in my hand and flicked it on the paper. Afterwards, I picked up the small puddles of water since I didn’t want to mess my card stock up.
