Congratulations | MFT & LF

Hi everyone! Finally I share another card. I needed a baby card for my sister's friend and I think the 'splendid swans' from MFT is perfect for it.


So I created a watercolor (bokeh) background with distress inks. And diecut the 'bayou backdrop' die from Lawn Fawn. I used the peeled paint distress oxide ink to color the piece of cardstock in.



After adhering the pieces to a cardbase I stamped the images with Memento tuxedo black ink and colored them in with Copics. After diecutting and glueing them onto the background, I created a small flag for the sentiment. 

A quick and easy but very cute card with the sweet baby swan.



Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Enjoy your day | Mama Elephant

Hello everyone! I hope you had a great Easter and a successful egg-hunting :)
I am back with a springful card because since Sunday was quite stormy today it's really warm and sunny.


First I created a background using the 'hillside cover' die from Mama Elephant (as are the rest of the stamps/dies) and distress oxide inks (salty ocean and peeled paint). I blended them onto the white cardstock in a very light way and sprinkled some water droplets.

Then I diecut the 'inside pop fence' and the grass from ink blended cardstock. After adhering the diecuts to the background I stamped the images from 'tea with friends' and the clouds from 'fly with me' with Memento tuxedo black and colored them in with Copics.



I diecut the images and adhered them to the card. I also added the sentiment included in the set. Last but not least I added some shine with the clear wink of stella brush and made two tiny glue dots behind the fence with the mono multi liquid glue from Tombow. These dots allow the garden doors to close and stick to the background very slightly (before closing the doors the glue must be dry!!!). The doors then can be opened and closed as often as you want.

Thank you for stopping by and have a sunny day!

Dragon in You | Mama Elephant

Hi everyone! I just can't let go of the sweet dragons from the latest Mama Elephant release. Today I combined the 'dragon wishes' stamp set with the older set 'in my heart'.

For the background I used a self made stencil which I diecut with the cloud border from 'landscape trio'. I blended the distress inks wilted violet, milled lavender, cracked pistachio and mermaid lagoon. To finish up the background I diecut the piece of distress watercolor paper with the 'all prettied up' die.


Then I stamped the dragons with the same ink colors directly onto the background and used the distress inks as watercolors to fill the images in.
I sprinkled some water droplets too, being careful not to ruin the images ;-)



After that I stamped the children and colored them in with Copic markers. After fuzzy-cutting and adhering them I added Nuvo jewel drops to "connect" the children with their inner dragons.



The sentiment is also from the dragon wishes sentiment.

Thank you for stopping by and have a magical day!

A magical birthday | Clearly Besotted

Hello everyone! I am stopping quickly by to show you this birthday card for my boyfriend's niece. It was her 6th birthday and who doesn't love Arielle? So I thought that the cute mermaid stamp from "Fairy Tale Mermaid" by Clearly Besotted is just perfect for this occasion.


I only used images from this small stamp set and went a bit out of my comfort zone by using watercolors.


First I stamped the images with antique linen distress ink and then I colored them in with Mijello Mission Gold watercolors.
For the water I used a light blue Zig clean color real brush pen.


After the first wash I added some details with Prismacolor pencils. Last but not least I added the sentiment with peacock Lawn Fawn dye ink and added some Jewel Nuvo drops.


Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!
