Imagine Design Create Guest Design Team Card - Dream Big - Using Star Mix stamp set


Hello Everyone!


Today I am sharing a single layer card I have created using the funky Star Mix, Reach for the Stars Stamp Sets by Imagine Design Create and Distress Oxide Inks. I love the ombre look and thought the star stamps would be fab as an ombre background!

The original post can be found here!







I have used:

6” x 6” card blank

White and black Cardstock

Distress Oxide Ink: Candied Apple, Spiced Marmalade and Fossilised Amber

Versafine Ink: Onyx Black

Double Sided Tape





This is such a simple card. I began by stamping the orange stars down the middle of the white square. I then cleaned the stamp and used the yellow ink to the right of the orange stars, lining up where the stars indent to create the background.





I then repeated this process on the other side using the red ink to create the really cool background. To finish I stamped the sentiment and the hanging stars in black and layered onto black card.





Such a simple but fun card, the ombre colour combos are endless and if you batch make the backgrounds these are ready to hand for when you need them!

Hi Everyone and Welcome Back!

This is a kit that is part of the Collage-a-Card range by Hunkydory and comes as a two pack with a golfing bag as well (Golfing Guy and Gone Fishin') - and is currently on sale here!

For this I copied the layout from the sample on the Hunkydory website and added in the name and age using Gold Mirri Card, my trusty Robert Addams All Occasion Dies (Small Number) and mini alphabet x-cut dies.

Thanks for looking,

Good Morning Everybody!

Today I am sharing another of my Design Team Cards from the new Hunkydory Birth Flowers stamps by For the Love of Stamps. There is a whole beautiful range which can be found on the Hunkydory website

For this card I have used the April stamp which is the Sweet Pea flower and wanted to create a fun background against the flowers. To make the circle worded background I used the waste circle from the Stamping Mirri Mats - Circles, how I used this can be seen below - I stamped and masked the flowers and then taped the circle down ready for stamping. 


I then stamped the sentiment words across the circle in green ink to create the simple but interesting background.


Products Used:

Imagine Design Create Guest Design Team Card - If Friends were Flowers ... Single Layer Stamped Card

Hi Everyone!

Today I am sharing a single layer card I have created using the sweet Doodled Flowers Stamp Set by Imagine Design Create and Alcohol Pens. I wanted the beautiful sentiment to stand out so decided to stamp the flowers around the edges.

 The original Post can be found here!


I have used:
6” x 6” scalloped card blank
White and pink Cardstock
Promarker Pens: Blossom, Fuchsia Pink, Magenta, Soft Lime, Apricot, Bright Orange
Sequins, PVA Glue, Double Sided Tape


I began by stamping the various flowers from the set around the corners of a white square card, I built the flower pattern up gradually going from large to small flowers, trying to fill the gaps in with the branch part. I then stamped the sentiment off centre for an interesting focus. I coloured the flowers in paying particular attention to my blending and finished by layering and added a few sequins. I really love this stamp set, it is so pretty and the sentiment is perfect!

Boy Band Mix Tape and Blue Hair Mascara Card - 90s Childhood - using For the Love of Stamps

Good Morning and Welcome back! 

Today I am sharing a card that might seem a bit odd - I was thinking back to when I made mix tapes, which was the 90s, and one of the fashions was to use blue hair mascara! I got a bit nostalgic and created this card for those years.  
For this card I used the Retro Mix Tape and You're Fabulous Stamps by For the Love of Stamps by Hunkydory.


I used blue ink for the border and stamped the various elements using black and blue ink. I coloured with Promarkers and added a few blue sequins to finish.

 
Thanks for looking,
