"You Rock" For the Love of Stamps June collection DT card using Retro Mix Tape

Good Morning!

  Today I bring you a Design Team card from the June collection of stamps by For the Love of Stamps by Hunkydory! This set is called Retro Mix Tape and I love this set as it is so versatile. I made a funky "pop" tape card which I blogged before and this one is a grungy "rock" style tape card using darker colours.


Products Used:


Retro Mix Tape Stamp Set, Step out in Style and Rock ‘n’ Roll Jukebox stamp sets

Card blank, Adorable Scorable - Matt-tastic Selection

Ink Me! Stamping Card

Versafine Onyx Black Ink Pad

Distress Inks: Rusty Hinge, Walnut Stain, Watercolour brush

Promarkers: Cocoa, Walnut, Henna, Black, Cool Grey 5

Tape


I stamped the main image, adding in the fab greeting tape part and then I used some Distress Ink around the edges. I stamped some different elements from different sets (love the splats from step out in style) and used a watercolour brush with the ink to colour the stars and flick some spots onto the card. I layered onto matt-tastic black to finish.
 
Thanks for looking, hugs,

Best Friends Forever Card using Papers from Little Claire Designs Pack

Good Morning and Welcome!
 
Today I am sharing a card I made a little while ago using a fab paper pack from Little Claire Designs. The pack is called Best Freinds Forever, is 6" x 6" size and has 4 different topper designs with matching papers.
  

I also used the sentiment from the stamp set Hugs which also features the main image as a stamp :) I layered this card against a green daisy paper and finished by adding a scribble pen border, red ribbon, some paper flowers and Card Candi. So quick, simple and pretty!

Thanks for looking and the next Little Claire show is on 7th July on Hochanda!

Monkey Card using Free Stamps in Papercraft Essentials Magazine Issue 147

Good Morning Everybody!
 
Today I am sharing a card I made using the Free
stamps from issue 145 of Papercraft Essentials Magazine. I fell in love with the cute stamps and my daughter loves monkeys so I thought I would make a fun card from the stamps.

  
 This card made it into the Readers' Gallery in issue 147! How awesome is that?!


For this card I used finger sponge daubers and Distress Ink to make the background. Then I stamped the vine trail along the top and greeting at the bottom. I stamped and coloured the monkeys and bananas seperate and fussy cut them, attaching with foam pads. To finish I added a green mat and a few matching sequins to the background.

Pineapple and Orange Shaker Card for Quick Cards Made Easy Magazine

Good Morning To You All!
 
Today I am sharing a card I made using the Free
Bonus Papers in the current issue (166) of Quick Cards Made Easy. I was lucky enough to be chose to work with these papers a few months back and I made a few cards with them. This is my second card . . .
  

I cut out the various squares for the background. The die cut a circle and added die cut decorative circles. I fussy cut a bunch of oranges, pineapples, punched a few blue dots and added some sequins to make up the window shaker part. I finished by cutting out a greeting, making a topper with punched shapes and added a white gel pen stitiched border.

Here is my card professionally photographed :) Thank you Quick Cards Made Easy Magazine!

But as we all know any sensible crafter starts their Christmas makes in June (I promise it's a big thing in the crafting world - non crafting friends!)

For this card I used one of the mini white card blanks (3.5" square so very mini) and made my own background. For this I used a stencil by The Crafters Workshop called
