Funky Fossil Designs - Wrap around Card Design

    Hi Everyone, I made this card using two of the new release sets from  Funky Fossil Designs !  Here are the two sets I used:               Heartfelt Tree                                      More Furry Friends                                                       I wanted to get more stamping on this card, so I decided to have the designs wrap around and continue on the back. It's pretty simple. I did a bit of masking and just stamped. Colored with water brush pens  and then I decided to add the grass - made myself a stencil with a grass die I had is my stash. I just love the little scene I created. Those two sets are made for each other - since dogs always want a tree, right..... ;) I hope you liked this and thanks for visiting. Happy Stamping!

Topflight Stamps - Happy Mothers Day

       Hi Everyone, It's  Topflight Stamps   day!  this week we are featuring Mothers Day or spring cards. I made a card for my mother in law. I hope she will like it! I used this beautiful Grunge Flower from Melina Dahl. Unfortunately it's out of stock right now, but I liked to a similar one at the bottom of this post. I stamped it twice with a little bit of masking and water colored around it to get that negative effect. In the end I thought it's a bit bland, so I added some grey to the flowers. I stamped the sentiment onto vellum and heat embossed it in black.  I hope you liked this. Thanks for visiting.  See you next week with more  Topflight Stamps  inspiration.

Topflight Stamps - Belated Easter Card

      Hi Everyone, It's  Topflight Stamps   day!  Somehow Easter just wasn't on my radar this year, so I struggled to make some last minute Easter cards. A while ago I specifically got this wonderful rabbit from Hobby Arts to make Easter cards and then all of a sudden I almost missed it......But this rabbit can be used for more than just Easter. He is such a cutie! I stamped the rabbit and colored him with water brush pens. Added the greenery - from the same stamp set. Added the sentiment and attached some thread to it for more interest. I hope you liked this. Thanks for visiting.  See you next week with more  Topflight Stamps  inspiration.

Guest Designing for The Male Room Challenge #149

Hi Everyone, I have the honor to be guest designing for the  current Male Room challenge , where the theme is "Wood" in a male version! Thank you so much Male Room for having me! Of course I did not come up with that on my own - I went to Pinterest for help...... I first printed the sentiment with my computer/printer. I took some wood paper and drew out the wood block. Stamped the face on it (Craft Emotions) and added the extremities (Your Next Stamp). Added a bit of color with Copics. Trimmed the card and added the same wood paper on the sides. So curious how you will interpret this theme! See you at  The Male Room ! Linking up with:

Funky Fossil Designs - New April Release

    Hi Everyone, Guess what? There is another new release coming into the shop at  Funky Fossil Designs !  Today is the second day of the stamp reveal. My first card is made with the set  " ​ Celestial". I heat embossed this amazing stamp in gold and colored it with Finetec Mica colors. It has an amazing shine to it. You see it in a completely different light on the image below. I also added a few black accents and lots of dots. I could not decide on a sentiment and it does not really need one anyhow. perhaps I will add one later, once I know where the card is going. My second card is made with the set "Artsy".  This is such a fun set! You can really play with colors on this one! I used some Funky fossil Washi tape on the side. There are a few 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.

Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps - New Card Kit

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. I know, its kind of late for an Easter card, but I wanted to use that chicken named  Henrietta  and besides that, you can use chicken for more than just Easter anyhow .....if you need ideas, go and check out Pinterest. A never ending source of inspiration..... The folded card is from the new  Card Kits . I must say, I really  love this one! I added strips of patterned paper to the sides (the paper is ancient and from my stash). I colored Henrietta with water brush pens and used die cuts (Simon Says Stamps)  to cut her out. Added the  Happy Easter  sentiment and that's that. Super easy!  Here are the new card kits: Next time I show you the folded card with the new stamps. I hope you liked this. Thanks for visiting!
