Birthday cards

A week or so ago we drove up into the mountains to see the fall leaves…unfortunately most of the leaves were gone already but it was so beautiful anyway. We even saw a little snow. Here’s some pictures:

Today I made a few birthday cards using a stamp set from Penny Black and some dies from MFT.

I handstamped the images and used my copic markers for coloring.

I cut the images out and layered them on some patterned paper.

I used the dies from MFT to create a nice edge and then stamped the sentiment. I finished off the cards by adding an enamel heart.

Which one is your favorite? I think I like the one with the little girl holding the balloons the best.

It finally feels like fall!

The weather has finally changed and things have cooled down, so it feels like fall now! Yesterday my girls and I went to the pumpkin patch for our yearly tradition of picking out pumpkins. It was a beautiful day and we had a lot of fun.

Its been a busy time so I haven’t blogged much about the cards that I have been making. So here’s one that I worked on the other day.

This is a Halloween box card that I made using “Halloween Hoo” by MFT stamps. I love these little owls!

I used the A2 box card die from Echo Park to make the box and used some of MFT’s Halloween papers to decorate it. Then I stamped the images and colored them with copic markers.

I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and then attached them to the box.

I think it came together quite well. I don’t know why I don’t make more of these box cards as I think they are very unique and usually turn out very cute.

I hope you are well and enjoying nice fall weather.

See you next time!

Halloween slimline card

Its finally cooled down a little for a few days but it’ll warm up again by the middle of the week. It really doesn’t feel like we are almost in October but Im still enjoying making Halloween cards. This one is a slimline card.

As always, I stamped my images and then cut them with the coordinating dies. I don’t always have the matching dies as sometimes I can’t afford to buy them. In that case I just fussy cut the images, something I don’t like to do but I do it anyway to get the effect I’m looking for. This time I was happy to have the matching dies.

After cutting the images I colored them with copic markers. I don’t have a big selection of markers but thats okay, I am usually able to make it work.

I used Whimsy stamps Slimline Marquee die for the top layer. I cut some Halloween cardstock and then used foam tape to give it some dimension. I used Trinity stamps Stitched card panels and windows for the next layer which I cut from some starry night cardstock and then for the last layer I used some bat cardstock and cut it so I left a 1/8th of an inch border around the card base.

I then added the sentiment “Happy Halloween to finish it off. I love slimline cards, it gives you so much more space to work with.

I hope this finds you well. See you next time!

I want to be a Princess already!!

This card was inspired by my granddaughter who just turned 5 the other day.

When she was up here visiting the other week, we were in the yard playing and she picked a dandelion. I told her she should make a wish before she blew on it. Her wish was “I want to be a Princess already”!! So I had to make her a princess card for her birthday.

I stamped the image and colored it with copic markers. I then cut it out with a decorative die from MFT. I layered princess themed papers from Echo Park and finished it off with an enamel heart from Doodlebug.

I love how girly it turned out and I hope it made her feel a little bit like a princess already!!

Till next time, take care.

Best Witches!

This card features the stamp set from MFT called “Best Witches”.

I did some ink blending on a piece of Strathmore Smooth cardstock using some distress oxide inks. I then splattered some water on it. Once that was done I left it to dry while I colored my images.

I colored them with copic markers and then cut them out with the coordinating dies.

I cut a piece of black cardstock for the road and stamped “best witches” on there with some white embossing powder. I then attached it to the card with some foam adhesive to give it some dimension.

I arranged the other images on the card adding some foam adhesive to the witch to keep her level with the road.

I love how it turned out

Unfortunately I think this stamp set has been discontinued but you can find other cute stamp sets at http://mftstamps.com.

Cute snowman die cut card

I’ve really been into making cards using dies lately. This one is using a snowman die from Cottage Cutz.

This was a more simple card to put together. I cut the dies with white cardstock and colored them with copic markers.

I layered all of the pieces together, which was pretty easy. I added some highlights with a white gel pen and added some dots to the scarf.

I used some cute patterned paper for the background and then stamped the sentiment “There’s snow one like you”. I adhered everything to a white cardbase and added a little enamel heart to finish it off.

Halloween RV card!

I came across this die from Cottage Cutz the other day and I had to have it! We love our family vacations in our RV every year and so this was right up my alley!

There are a lot of tiny pieces in this die and I cut everything out in white cardstock and then colored it with copic markers.

It took a while to piece everything together but I think it was worth it. I did make a few mistakes that I will correct when I make it again but I don’t think they are that noticeable.

Next time I will cut it in different colored cardstock and see how that looks but I like how it turned out with the coloring.

I layered some patterned paper together and then adhered the RV to that. I attached it all to a grey cardbase.

Thanksgiving?

Its funny to be making fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas cards when its still so hot outside but as a card maker I have to think ahead. This card is for Thanksgiving and I love how colorful it is.

I stamped the image and did some basic copic coloring. No shading other than a tiny bit on the turkey. I used a few different fall colors and I really like how it turned out.

For the background I used two different patterned papers and then just adhered the image on top using some craft foam to give it dimension. I added a few little fall colored gems and thats it. Quite quick and simple.

It’s been a hard week…

It’s been a hard week. Just over a week ago we found out that one of my husbands brothers passed away so we’ve been dealing with that and having family in town. Then Utah had hurricane force winds that caused so much damage. Thankfully we didn’t have any damage but thousands of people are still without power. We even had to push the burial back a day as there were lots of downed trees in the cemetery.

Things are slowly getting back to normal so I’ve been back in my craft room creating again. Though my craft room is so messy right now, it’s hard to even find anything in there!! One of my daughters has offered to help me organize so hopefully this weekend it will start to look a lot better!

I made this Halloween card the other day.

I love owls and I love making Halloween cards, so this was fun.

I used the new stamp set from MFT called “Halloween Hoo” and also used their “Ghoulish Greetings” background stamp.

I chose some purple cardstock and stamped the background stamp in purple to give a tone on tone look. I then matted that in black cardstock.

For the main image, I cut a circle from white cardstock and used the MFT mini edge stencil with purple and black distress oxide inks to create the clouds. I framed the circle in black to help it stand out.

I stamped and colored the images and attached them to the circle, propping up the owls on some foam pads.

I then attached everything to a grey card base, added a sentiment strip and the card is done!

You can find the stamp set and background stamp at mftstamps.com . See you soon!

Another fall card!

We finally got a few days of cooler weather but by the end of the week we will be almost 100 degrees again! It doesn’t feel that fall is around the corner but I’ve been enjoying using my fall stamps to make some cards anyway!

This is one of my favorite stamp sets for fall. It’s called “Fay loves fall” by Stamping Bella.

I stamped the image with memento tuxedo black ink onto some Neenah classic white 80lb card stock. I then colored it with COPIC markers.

I layered some patterned paper and added the sentiment “Happy Harvest”.
