Pinkfresh October Challenge + Hot Foil + Ink Blending + Heat Embossing

Hi everyone, and welcome back!

I’m popping in today with a quick card I made with mostly “leftovers” from previous crafting sessions, for the Pinkfresh Studio new monthly challenge. Each month there is a new theme and colour scheme, and this month it’s Fall/Fall Holidays and this is the inspiration graphic.

My interpretation is more based on the colour scheme than the theme, but that’s ok. If you think you have to be super literal with your interpretation, don’t worry. That’s not the point at all. The point is to get your creativity humming and going! Don’t forget to upload your project to the InLinkz album before Nov 2nd, for your chance to win a $50 gift card to Pinkfresh Studios!

While I was preparing to be on the Craft Hour last month, I foiled so many of the Thankful for Friends image. It’s slightly addicting, especially when you have zero willpower like I do.. I really need to get a grip with using up everything I prep and make while on a roll, so this card was an effort to do just that.

Below you can see some of the cards I ended up finishing after the Craft Hour.

I also had an Thankful For Friends image heatembossed, so I thought I’d use that with the coordinating Layering Stencils. That way I could use up one more piece but still add colour to it. Using the stencils I have ink blended a bit of Misty Coast and Rocky Slope with blender brushes, over the stem and for the flowers themselves I used only Tidal Pond. This soft look is achieved by picking up the ink from the lid, where I tap off excess ink and get it covering the brush evenly, rather than from the ink pad directly. It’s one of my better ideas for sure!

The last layer of the stencil I did use, but not with more inks, but rather Nuvo Glimmer Paste in Moonstone. I think I did learn something with this though. You see, I did this before cutting it out, which flattened the Glimmer Paste a little. The better way to do it would be to cut it out first, and then add that afterwards. You can use a little bit of washi tape to hold the image in place.

When I was happy with the ink blending and glitz (and that had dried), I used the coordinating diecut and cut it out. Previously, I had cut out a ton of extra pieces for layering up, and I used one of these extra pieces to add some height. I also used one of the Hot Foiled images. This one is done with Matte Gold on Stormcloud card stock.

These pieces I set aside while I decided on the background. I also had a load of Abstract Triangle Hot Foiled panels, and I grabbed one of these. It turned out this is Matte Gold too, so that coordinated perfectly. It did need a little something though, so I added a light touch of Apricot and Clementine ink around the edges. It really made the gold foiling pop even more! The middle was left white so that the flowers would look like they glowed, sort of.

The final thing to do was to heat emboss one of the sentiments from the Thankful For Friends set, in Rich Gold embossing powder from WOW! Embossing powder. This was adhered with a little bit of foam tap and with that the card was done!

So, there is a lot going on with this card, but despite the colours not being my first colour combo choice, I do think it works.

Ok, now it’s your turn. Make a card with the challenge graphic as inspiration and upload it to the album for your chance to win $50 gift card to the Pinkfresh Studios shop!

Fluttering by for the Pinkfresh Studio July Challenge

Hi everyone, and welcome back to my blog!

As some of you might have already seen, or heard about, I’ve joined the Pinkfresh Studio design team for the rest of the year! I’m SUPER EXCITED about this as I’m such a huge fan of Pinkfresh Studio!

Just look at this collection of amazing crafters, and then spot little ole me in there too! It’s such a dream come true!

Pinkfresh Studio run monthly challenges, both for the scrapbooking side of things and the card making side of things, so no matter what your preferred way of crafting and creating is, you can join in!

For the month of July the theme is ‘Butterflies’, and you can interpret that however you like. Below you can see the challenge graphic, maybe glean some inspiration from that or just let your creativity loose and see what happens!

For my card, I decided to first make a flowery background, something for the butterflies to be attracted to, so to say.

I absolutely adore the Miss Your Smile stamp and coordinating layering stencils set, so I really wanted to use them. My first impluse was to make yellow flowers, with turquoise/teal leaves.

The colours of ink used are Lemon Whip, Sunshine and Sweet Mustard for the blooms. On the leaves it’s Ocean Breeze and Aquamarine. At the top of the card I used a little bit of Sky Blue to soften all that white space, and give a summery sky look to the card.

I toyed with the idea of using Black Ink for the outline stamp, but in the end I heat embossed it with Gold Rich from WOW! Embossing. I’m really glad I went this route, as it gives the petals and stems more definition, without being too harsh.

For the butterfly part, I used, no surprise, the biggest from the Butterflies stamp set. I heatembossed it on vellum, again with Gold Rich embossing powder. After using the coordinating diecut, I adhered it to the card with a bit of foam tape to create the illusion of it hovering above the flower.

To keep the card cohesive, I used a heat embossed sentiment from the Perfect Sentiments set. I made a ton of these as the stamp set is so clever, and you get the whole bunch in one go. The coordiating diecut for these is equally brilliant!

That’s my card for the challenge, and over on my Instagram you can find a reel for this card too. Or, well, you would have, if I hadn’t managed to delete it, like a total IDIOT!!!

Now it’s your turn! Hop on over to the Pinkfresh Studio blog and enter your card in the July challenge for a chance to win a $50 gift voucher to the shop!

MFT Stamps Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone!

Today’s post is a quick one, as it’s a quick card! I peeked at the MFT Stamps Sketch Challenge for this week and I thought hmm, I can do this one. I did end up flipping the sketch on its side though.

I started by colouring the doggies in the PAWsome Lucky Dog stamp set from MFT Stamps, this one is retired sadly. I used so many Copics for these little guys to created texture, dimension and to bring them to life!

When they were all coloured in, I then cut them out with the coordinating die-namics. How cute is this little gang? As a self-confessed CDL/Crazy Dog Lady I have a weakness for doggie stamps.

As I’m challenging myself to make more CAS/Clean And Simple cards, I wanted to make it very simple and let the doggies take centre stage. So I cut out a scalloped square out of some patterned paper, from the Trail Mix 6×6 Paper Pack. Because I love blue, I used a blue one. This paper pack is also retired, as I have hoarded it for so long, lol!

A quick straight to the point sentiment, You’re Dog-gone Awesome, was stamped up with black ink on white card stock. I trimmed it down a little and then stuck all these bits down onto a white card card base. That was it. Not even a single sequin! Can you believe it??

I’m going to try and remember to submit this to the Sketch Challenge in time, as I usually don’t. Kind of nuts, as there is a $50 gift card up for grabs just to submit the card as the winner is randomly drawn.

Right, I’m done! Lots of love and happy crafting from Erica

MFT Stamps Sketch Challenge 501

Hi!

Today’s post is based on this week’s MFT Stamps Sketch Challenge #501 and I’ve not done one of these for a while, so I thought why not?

I really wanted to use the cute dragons from the BB Magical Dragons set. With that in mind, I stamped them up on Copic friendly card stock with the PFS Black Hybrid ink, set it with my WOW! heat tool and got to work with Copics. My first dragon was done in what I picture to be a natural colour for dragons: green!

My second dragon was done in more teal-like colours, maybe she’s a girl dragon? The tummies, horns, wings and back scales on both of them were done in lighter, but still matching colours.

There were two fire bursts stamped up too, so I did these in flame colours. Deep reds with some fiery yellow. I’m so glad this set comes with coordinating Dienamics as fussy cutting is not my jam.

The background I did with the Mini Cloud stencil, one of my favourite stencils ever. I wanted a really soft look, so I didn’t add any more ink to my Life Changing Blender Brushes, just used the blues left on them. It turned out fab!

One of my newest purchases is Sparkle Spray by Nuvo Tonic Studios, and I wanted to add some sparkle to the background with this. Buuuuut… I went a little overboard, which left the background COVERED in the sparkle spray. This one is Morning Fog, and wow! I think I will be adding a few more to my arsenal.

To finish off the card, I stamped up a couple of the sentiments from the BB Magical Dragons set with Black Hybrid ink. Then I adhered the dragons and the fire bursts with Lawn Fawn liquid glue, added a little bit of Wink Of Stella to the wings and horns, and with that, the card was done! I was originally only going to add one of the fire bursts but as I went overboard with the Sparkle Spray, and it kind of looked like ash in the air after the dragon had gone to town breathing fire, I added both.

You’re Super Card for MFT Stamps Sketch Challenge 448

Hi guys!

Today’s post is a card for this week’s MFT Stamps Sketch Challenge. MFT Stamps run a weekly sketch challenge, which you can read all about on their blog. It’s a great way to juice up your mojo! This week’s sketch, MFTWSC448, looks like this:

MFT_WSC_448_large

I decided to use the fun MFT Stamps You’re Super stamp stand colouring it with Copic markers. On Copic friendly card stock I stamped up the super girl with Blackout Detail Ink from Ink On 3. I, of course, used my Mini MISTI for this to make sure I got a good coverage. This stamp set has coordinating diecuts but I decided to do a reasonably flat card today.

If you are more of a video tutorial person, I have a video up on my YouTube channel too. Hop on over there if you want to see the card making in action.

After finishing the colouring I stamped up the super girl on masking paper and fussy cut the image out. With a little bit of finesse, I added the mask to the girl and got a stencil out. The one I picked out is Rays The Roof from Heffy Doodle and it was still tacky from the Pixie Spray I used on it last time so no need to add more!

The Distress Oxide inks I settled on are Squeezed Lemonade and Mustard Seed. These I ink blended onto the panel using my gorgeous Blender Brushes from Taylored Expression. 

Once the ink blending was done I trimmed down the panel just a tad. It was 5.5″x4.25″ to begin with but I only trimmed down a few millimetres so that the black card base would frame the panel.

I decided to heat emboss the sentiments from the You’re Super stamp set on strips of Black Licorice card stock. To make sure they were straight I used my Mini MISTI. The embossing powder is from Ink On 3 and is called Arctic White.

With these done, it was time to assemble! Which didn’t take long actually, lol!

That’s it from me for today. I have used some compensated affiliate links in this post, which means I get a small commission from the company directly if you use these to buy yourself a something pretty *wink wink* At no extra cost to you, of course. The other links are there purely for your convenience.

Card for MFT Stamps Camp Create Day 1: Wonderful Watercolor

Hi, hi, hello!

Today’s card is a quick one I made for the very fun Camp Create event MFT Stamps are hosting on the MFT Stamps blog. I’m way behind but Day 1’s prompt is Wonderful Watercolor and I do love a little bit of water colouring so I decided to jump on the fun-waggon!

I’ve also made a YouTube video for this card, so if you want to skip ahead to that, click on the highlighted link which will take you to my channel.

On a panel of water colour card stock, which I had taped down to an old cutting plate with masking tape, I swirled around lots of Gansai Tambi water colours. The object was to create a galaxy background.

When that was done and dried with my heat gun, I used the Shining Stars dienamic (which is apparently discontinued, wahhh), one of my favourites from MFT Stamps, to cut out one each of black card stock and gold mirror card stock. The one I find myself reaching for over and over is Honey Gold from Tonic Studios and the black one I use is Black Licorice from Lawn Fawn. These I layered up with Lawn Fawn gluetube and set aside.

On black card stock I stamped a few sentiments from the Written In The Stars stamp set, another MFT Stamps goodie which has been discontinued, with VersaMark ink and heat embossed them with Metallic Gold Rich from WOW! Embossing. I can’t do any stamping with my MISTI so of course I used that for this part. I also cut out the ‘Good Friends Are Like’ sentiment part out with the Essentials Fishtail Sentiment Strips dienamics. I have so many goodies from MFT Stamps, I’m a proper dienamics fan. Lol!

With all my bits and pieces ready, it was time to assemble the card! After adhering the background panel to the card base, I added the other pieces and finished it off with a very generous helping of Nuvo Drops in Banana Split, from Tonic Studios. They glow in the dark and add such a fun twist to the card!

I have used some compensated affiliate links in this post and for my YouTube video. Affiliate links do not cost you anything extra at all, that wouldn’t be cool at all. The company will pay me a small commission directly, at zero cost to you. If I have inspired you today, I would be so grateful if you’d consider using mine as I use anything I make from them to run my blog, my YouTube channel and to create fun content.

Thanks for stopping by today. Lots of love and happy crafting from Erica

 

Picture Perfect Card for the MFT Stamps Sketch Challenge 443

Hi guys!

Today’s post is really short and sweet, just like the YouTube video that’s now up on my channel, for this card. It’s a really quick card and there is only so much jibber-jabbering one can do to fill out a blog post, right? Even me, lol!

This card is based on the current MFT Stamps Sketch Challenge, go to mftstamps.com and click on ‘Join an MFT Challenge’ to see more challenges and to join in yourself!

My interpretation is pretty loose here but that’s ok. The good peeps at MFT Stamps just want us to get going with card making and inspire us. If you link up your card however, you can win a $50 gift card to the shop!

I’ve used the super fun and adorable Picture Perfect stamp set, and inked up the kitties with Ink On 3 Blackout Detail Ink on copic friendly card stock. With the help of my Mini MISTI of course!

The kitties themselves are coloured in with Warm and Cold Gray Copics in a dotting technique. There is probably a proper name for this but I call it dotting. I like doing this when I want to add texture to images and who doesn’t want that when you are colouring fur?

When it was all done, I cut it out with scissors and set aside. Using my Gemini Go diecutting machine I cut out a white Polaroid Shaker Frame and I also cut out one glitter gold ‘Celebrate‘ word, as well as one in a light gray card stock. That one is Narwhal from Lawn Fawn. The gold glitter card stock is from a shop in Denmark and I’m running low! I am definitely on the lookout for a new one. If you have a good tip on glitter gold card stock, I’d love to hear about it!

The two Celebrate dienamics I layered up, slightly off to create that lovely shadow effect, with the help of the Gluetube from Lawn Fawn. The Polaroid and the kitties got layered up as well and then adhered to a card base made out of Fog card stock from Simon Says Stamp.

One final touch was to add a sentiment strip saying ‘May Your Birthday Be As Awesome As You Are!’ It’s from a Studio Katia set called Birthday Greetings. This was heatembossed in white embossing powder on black card stock (Licorice from Lawn Fawn) and then adhered with the gluetube as well.

As usual I have used some affiliate links in this post, but not to worry, using these links doesn’t cost you anything extra at all. I get a small commission from the company directly if you choose to use these to treat yourself to something.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I’d love it if you checked out my YouTube video too!

Fleece Navidad for MFT Sketch Challenge 409

Hi everyone!

Today is my last post as a guest designer for the MFT Stamps Wednesday Sketch Challenge. Whilst it’s bitter-sweet to say bye for now, I have had such a great time and I wanted to say a big huge Thank You to MFT Stamps for giving me this opportunity. It’s been amazing and by far the biggest thing that’s happened to me in my crafting journey!

Right, before I turn into a right old Soppy Poppy, I’m going to get to the card and the sketch itself. This week it looks like this:

I wanted to use the llamas from Happy Llamadays as I have not used them yet. I also wanted to include felt again, as I did for Sketch 407 which you can find HERE.

In the end, I used quite a few sets for this card! Apart from the Happy Llamadays, and it’s coordinating die-namic (I love me a coordinating diecut, ain’t nobody got time for fussy cutting!) I also used the Fa La La die-namic for the first time, the Snow Flurry stencil and the standalone hills die-namic.

The Snow Flurry  stencilled piece I did for another card, but didn’t end up using it so I thought, why not use it now? Piece of cake, it’s already done! As it was all white, I decided to use the Fa La La die-namic on it and either ink blend something on the background or maybe do something with alcohol inks.

A light bulb went off when I had cut the panel and I grabbed my stash of felt! I thought it would look fab with some of it peeking through the holes but what colour to choose? Instead of picking just one, I cut strips of it using a Fiskars circle… knife?… blade thingy…  (I have no idea what it is called but it is a genius tool!) in five different shades of blue and green.

After prepping a white card base with double sided tape, it was a quick job of adhering the strips of felt in alternating colours to create a fun pattern.

Once it was covered in felt, I adhered the stencilled piece on top and added the little cutouts from the Fa La La letters.

While I had my felt out, I started cutting out pieces using the hills die-namic. Lots and lots of them! These I layered up on a piece of card stock I had trimmed down to roughly the size of the bottom panel of the sketch. The look I was after was a very fluffy snow scene for my llamas.

Speaking of the llamas, they are coloured using Copics and diecut with the coordinating die-namic. I’ve gone for quite a muted colour scheme for them but couldn’t resist adding some stars to the present using a gold gel pen.

To finish off the card it needed more of a sentiment than the ‘Fa La La ‘ and to go with the felt and soft, tactile look of the card, I used ‘Fleece Navidad’ from the Happy Llamadays. This is stamped on a strip of white card stock and trimmed down a bit. It’s not as big as in the sketch but it just didn’t look right to leave it too long.

This card is very thick and chunky, so it’s probably best to give this to someone in person. Or mail it in a box! It’s nearly 1/3 of an inch/1cm thick in places. But it sure is fun and I had a great time making it!

This post is littered with affiliate links to all the MFT Stamps products I have used for this card. I would be so grateful if you would consider using these when you treat yo’self/stock up/get life-essential crafting goodies as I get a small commission from MFT Stamps directly, at no cost to you whatsoever. It all helps, no matter how small an order and I really appreciate the support.

Thanks again for stopping by! Lots of love and happy crafting from Erica

Bright birthday card for MFT Stamps Wednesday Sketch Challenge #️⃣406

Hello, hello!

MFT_SketchChallenge_2017Logo_400_edited-1

Today I’m popping in with my take of MFT Stamps Wednesday Sketch Challenge , this is challenge #406, which looks like this:

unnamed-4

The card I came up with is actually my second one, the first one I made I felt was a bit too loosely interpreted. It worked better in my mind than on paper, but oh well. There you go, not every card translates perfectly from idea into reality.

As I went back to the drawing board or square one, I was a bit stumped at first. Then, slowly, an idea came to me to make a pile of presents to represent the squares on the sketch. They all had to be different colours of course! Step one was to select a die-namic that would fit six times on the card and after rummaging through my MFT Stamps stash I came across the Stitched Mini Scallop Square STAX. The second smallest one would fit, just about and with some overlapping.

5186B2CF-385C-4E40-B2FA-CBE572C7FC44

On some Strathmore Bristol Vellum card stock I quickly did some ink blending using Distress Oxide inks: Squeezed Lemonade for yellow, Picked Raspberry for pink, Cracked Pistachio for green, Dusty Concord for purple, Salty Ocean and some Blueprint Sketch for dark blue and Mermaid Lagoon for light blue.

137853DF-7CFD-4875-8B67-A8FBF15124BA

I splattered water on all of these to give them some more interest and dabbed that off with a craft towel. While these were drying, I picked out some metallic thread that I wrapped around each box to make it look like string on presents.

C21437E1-4B94-4BE9-92D9-FB24132D2BEF

As the boxes would cover up almost the entire card base, I decided to keep it quite simple. A piece of Neenah Desert Storm card stock was embossed with a pattern to mimic Kraft wrapping paper, trimmed down to 5.5″x4.25″ size and adhered to a card base.

With the help of different thickness foam tape, I added the boxes in a big “pile”. On small banners, cut out using Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips, I stamped ‘Happy Birthday’ and ‘for you!’ using sentiments from Bitty Bears. Each box got paired up with a sentiment so that all of them are mix’n’matched. These were then added using more foam tape.

242A1BD2-2AB9-4926-89A8-230FBD52DDAB

Each box also got decorated with three Pretty Pink Post clear sparkling sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. A birthday card can’t be too sparkly and bright, right?

That’s it from me for today but don’t forget that the new release from MFT Stamps is available now! If you decided you want something from it, I’d be very grateful if you would consider using my affiliate links when you purchase. I get a small commission from MFT Stamps directly, at no extra cost to you, if you do. Thank you so much in advance for the support, I really appreciate it! Click HERE to see the whole new release. It’s full of adorable stamps and fabulous die-namics!

Oh, and don’t forget to participate in the challenge! There is a $50 gift certificate up for grabs for the randomly drawn winner, so link up your project on the MFT Stamps blog!

Good luck and happy crafting from Erica

Clean And Simple birthday card with Bitty Bears

Hi guys! 

I’m popping in with a super quick card today. One of the major upsides of CAS/Clean And Simple cards is that they generally do not take too much time to make. This one probably took a total of twenty minutes and most of that was spent on the colouring of the little Bitty Bears cutie from MFT Stamps. 

E9598BAD-EF1B-4F42-863C-EEBF3161CB9C

Recently, I have been getting so much better at doing CAS cards without overthinking things and itching to add more and more to it, and thus taking is totally out of the running of being CAS. Making something clean and simple used to make me break out in a sweat just thinking about it, lol!! I’m not sure what it is that has made the tide turn but these days I enjoy the process rather than hyperventilate and get heart palpitations *slight over-exaggerating perhaps* 

Well, enough jibber-jabbering about my cardiac and pulmonary activity, let’s get to the crafting activity instead! 

34571ED0-E0FE-40B4-BE1C-409723761A22

As mentioned, I coloured a sweet little Bitty Bears from MFT Stamps, the one holding a balloon. I adore this stamp set, it has a little bear for pretty much every occasion and a load of sentiments to match. I used Cold Grey Copics for the bear and added some blushed cheeks and pink ears. I also dotted my Colorless Blender all over him to get a textured look, I do this a lot to achieve a textured look on my images. Especially the smaller ones where there is not always enough space to add shadows and shading. Once the bear was finished, I cut him out with the coordinating dienamic and set him aside. 

D7EA5375-B871-490A-9B53-047E2528BE76

This card I’m entering in to the MFT Stamps Challenge which for this month is CAS Birthday so I wanted a simple background with lots of white. But you know, I’m still me and little ole’ me likes texture so I decided to do some heat embossing on it to add interest. To stick to the CAS ideology I did it in white embossing powder and on Ranger Ink water colour card stock because it is the whitest one I’ve got. 

2DEF6059-F042-44FC-8C3F-6065C3CE5252

First off, I used my anti-static tool on the panel, and then I stamped the Mesmerizing Mandala, another goodie from MFT Stamps, in VersaMark ink on it and sprinkled the white embossing powder on it. After setting it with my heatgun I decided to add just a hint of blue to it to make the mandala stand out a teeny, tiny bit more and after scouring my collection of Distress Oxide inks, I settled on Tumbled Glass. Using a very light hand, I added some to the middle of the mandala and blended outwards. Over this I sprayed a little bit of Pearl White spray mist from Prima Marketing and set it aside to dry. 

04A6F6FC-3F85-4A75-9065-366A0DA73243

To match the bear with his balloon, I stamped ‘Happy birthday, it’s time to party’ on a small banner from the Essential Fishtail Sentiment strips dienamic set and mounted this with foam tape. This die-namic set I use all the time, it’s a staple for sure.

I added a little bit to the bear too and added these to the card to that the bear is standing on top of the banner.

F23AADE9-0A95-4FEE-AE33-1AF294A1A1A8

One of my favourite bold sentiment dienamics from MFT Stamps is the ‘Celebrate’ one, it’s so big and fun. I use it all the time! For this card I cut it out of silver glitter card stock and foam sheet, these two I layered up and added to the card over the bear. And wouldn’t you know it, the card was done! In another shocking twist, no sequins…! Again! I may need to go lie down and wait until this no-sequins-phase has passed.
