Little Claire Designs DT card using Christmas Stamp Box Westie Dog

Good Morning and Happy Weekend!
 
Today I am sharing DT card for Little Claire Designs featuring the super cute Westie Dog (Christmas Lights Scottie) from the Christmas Stamp Box and the beautiful Pine Green Tag Card Blank.
  

For this card I sprayed some Picket Fence Distress Spray onto the card blank to create the snow fall. Then I stamped and fussy cut out the cute dog. Colouring with Promarkers and finishing with a little glitter glue and twine.

Thanks for looking,

Birthday Candle Card using Big and Bold Wish by Uniko

Good Morning!
 
Today I am sharing a clean and simple (CAS) card I have created using my beautiful stamps from the fab UK company Uniko. This stamp set is called Wish and is from the Big and Bold collection.


I kept this card simple (I know not my usual style but I wanted to make the beautiful stamps the feature) by having a limited colour palette and a lot of white background. The stamps are fab and I cleanly stamped the wording straight onto the card blank. I stamped the candles on a separate rectangle, having a play with the flame, then layered onto a green rectangle to finish. Next time will have a go at using lots of ink with these stamps ;)

DT Journal Page for Lemon Shortbread Blog Challenge #46

Good Morning and Welcome Back!
Today I am sharing my Design Team Journal Page for Lemon Shortbread's new blog challenge #46.

For this Challenge I have used the really cute Butterfly Lily Pad Fairy digi stamp. This stamp is so beautiful and I had so much fun creating the background for this layout using my lovely Distress Oxides.




For the background I used a Prima circle stencil and the circle stamps are by Uniko. I coloured the Lily Pad Fairy with Promarkers and Distress Oxides with a water brush. I added little pearls to her hair for extra detail and finished with some hand journaling with a play on the theme in the wording.

Thanks for looking!

I have entered my card in the following challenges:

DT Card using Little Claire Designs Christmas Stamp Box

Good Morning!
 
Today I am sharing another cute stamp from the Christmas Stamp Box that I have used for my DT card and the lovely new scalloped circle card blank both from Little Claire Designs!
  

For this card I stamped the deer straight onto the card black with the sentiment stamped underneath. I then used Broken China Distress Oxide around the edges for a soft blended background. I then used a white gel pen to add the snow and used Promarkers to colour the image. To finish I added some tiny peals for extra snow.

Thanks for looking and don't forget the stamp box is only available for a limited time!

Distress Ink Galaxy Background with Imagine Design Create Star Stamps

Good Morning and Happy Weekend!
 
Today I am sharing another card I have created using my beautiful stamps from the fab UK company Imagine Design Create. This card features the Star Mix Stamps and Reach for the Stars Stamps with Distress Inks and Heat Embossing.

This is the finished card.



So I started by laying some Distress Ink down in a random pattern, I used Fossilized Amber, Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet, Mermaid Lagoon, Faded Jeans and Black Soot.



  I then used a toothbrush to spay small splashes of water and my fingers to create bigger drops. I let the water sit for about 30 seconds before blotting with a tissue.



 I then repeated the inking and splashing process to create more depth of colour with layers.



The final layer I inked again then used some white acrylic with a tiny bit of water on the toothbrush to make some tiny white dots for stars that pop. I left this to dry under my flat glass mat so it would keep flat and be dry for the heat embossing - if not dry the powder just sticks everywhere! For the heat embossing I used Versamark clear ink and Heat it up Seafoam White embossing powder. I did this in stages, doing the centre sentiment first, then the corners and finally the middle edges in order to keep the stamping crisp and not accidently smudge the design :) To finish I added some small white pearls as little stars and attached to a card blank.

The Imagine Design Stamps are so crisp and stamp beautifully clean. You can check out the other products here.
