Birthday flowers | Mama Elephant and Clearly Besotted

Hi there! I am here for a quick blogpost to show you my recent cards. I used the stamp set 'timeless tulips' from Mama Elephant and played with my Gansai Tambi watercolors.

For each of the cards I applied three layers of color. The first one is a very light base layer, then a darker one and a very intensive last layer. I used only one color for the flowers and for the leafs - only the amount of water changed.

With black and the beautiful pearlescent color included in the 36 color set I mixed a light silver color and applied it around the bouquet. 

Last but not least I added the sentiment from Clearly Besotted.

Thank you for stopping by and have an awesome day!

Your time to twirl | Clearly Besotted

Hello! I am back with another card using Clearly Besotted stamps. (yes I am looking forward to their holiday release) I bought the 'trouble in a tutu' set a long time ago but hadn't had the chance to use it yet. Finally I created a birthday card with it.

The card took me longer than usual due to the no-line pencil coloring. I have not been practicing with the prismacolor pencils a lot so it took me even longer :)

I stamped the images with manatee ink from Lawn Fawn (second generation stamping) and traced circles around them. Then I colored them all in. After that I used a Tim Holtz stencil and stencil brushes to create a soft background for the little ballerinas. 

(masking the hippos with diecut circles from scratch paper before creating the background)

I added the sentiments with hippo Lawn Fawn ink and added some nuvo drops in oyster grey.

A very easy card which focuses on coloring :)

Thank you for stopping by and have an amazing day!!

Birthday Wishes from the Gang | Clearly Besotted

Hello everonye! I just love the designs from Clearly Besotted and I have so much fun using the stamps again. The stamp set 'good to be bad' is one of my favorite sets and I enjoy using it all year round.

This time I started out by layering most of the images of the set and coloring them in with Zig clean color real brush markers. I also used the balloon stamp from the 'all in onesies' stamp set. Then I diecut a frame using the polaroid frame die from Mama Elephant from Lawn Fawn pattern paper. I adhered the frame to the watercolored image and trimmed the piece down.

I created a blue watercolored background and cut a grey frame using the dotted detail die from Mama Elephant. After adhering all to a white card base I stamped the sentiment with fresh lavender Lawn Fawn ink and the labeled message stamp (ME). I added a handwritten "#from the gang" to the card because I didn't have such small letters.

Thank you for stopping by and I'll see you soon.

Welcome back!!! | MFT

Hello everyone!!! It's been a long while since my last blog post. There have been a few changes in my life which kept my quite busy :)

Now I am feeling ready to continue with my blog, I hope to create a new logo and spread my blog even more. Let's see :-D 

Today I made this happy summer card using the MFT stamp set 'polynesean paradise'. I stamped a bunch of flowers as well as the cute girl from the set and colored them in with Copic markers. Then I fuzzy cut all them. I used the ink smooshing technique with distress ink (peeled paint) to create the background. I die cut the second largest oval frame from the Avery Elle die set 'sweet scallops' and arranged the flowers around the oval window shape. The negative piece I stamped with the MFT 'etched flowers' background stamps and distress oxide ink in peeled paint also.

Last but not least I adhered the frame and the girl with foam tape to a craft cardbase after I had glued the oval negative piece to the base.

I hope you like the card and I'll see you soon.

Best wishes
