Funky Fossil Designs - New June Release Day 1

      Hi Everyone, Guess what? There is another new release coming into the shop at  Funky Fossil Designs !  Today is the first day of the stamp reveal. My first card from this upcoming release is made with the set  " ​ Coffee and Friends", the new coffee bean heart and coffee die and an awesome new background paper from the new Neutrals paper pad. I die cut the heart  using  a sheet of the paper pad and underlaid it with a sheet of gold shimmer paper. I heat embossed part of one of the new sentiments in gold at the bottom of the card. I says "Coffee is my super power", but I cut away the coffee, as I already had it with the die cut sentiment. I had die cut the word die with fun foam and glued them together to make it stand out a bit more. I also added some Nymo thread for extra interest. There are many more stamps on that set - you will have to wait until Friday to see them all. Friday will be the release day. There will be five new sets (including the Weird Fish,

Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps - Abducted by Aliens

I cut out the stamps and colored them with Inktense and water brush markers. I heat embossed the sentiment and cut it apart. Added little strips of patterned paper at the bottoms of the sentiment strips. Assembled the card, using foam tape for the alien and UFO.  Here is the second new June  Card Kit 7  : I hope you liked this. Thanks for visiting! Happy Stamping!

Funky Fossil Designs - Hello Forest Friends!

       Hi Everyone, I made this card using one of the new release sets from  Funky Fossil Designs !  It's called  Forest Friends . I love those silhouette animals. They are designed by the amazing Donna Gray, one of my favorite designers! Silhouette stamps are so easy to use. Especially when you have a stamping platform, like a MISTI or something similar. It's really easy then to get a good impression, although for the black ones you need a juicy inkpad. I often treat my inkpad with re-inkers, before I use those stamps. To get a multicolored image is also easy with a stamp positioner. All the stamps used for this card are  from the same set. The bottom strip is a Washi tape I hope you liked this and thanks for visiting. Happy Stamping! Linking up with:

Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps - Pop-up Box Card

     Hi Everybody, Some of the products I have used have been provided to me from various companies I design for. Affiliate links may be used in the links provided below.  You may be familiar with the new card kits that  Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps  carries in the store. The card kit for June is an A2 pop-up box card. If you always wanted to make one of those boxes, but shied away from the work involved, you might want to try this. But I warn you - it's still a fair amount of time that goes into that. So - something for a very special occasion or very special person...... at least for me.  For my card I used this  Card Kit. : I cut some designer paper ( Funky Fossil Designs ) For the background. I stamped the astronaut, rocket and moon and colored them with water brush pens. Cut them out. Also used some die cut stars (Neat&Tangled). Added those cuts to the inside partitions with strips of clear sturdy plastic (recycled packaging material). Stamped the sentiment onto the front
