Rubber Stampede Santa Profile Card

One more Christmas card for now that I made a bit ago. I like following along with the sketches in the Build Your Stash Holiday Cardmakers group in Facebook. I need to get a little more productive with it though. Anyway here is one from last months sketch.

As you can see this a fairly straight forward card. I stamped the Santa with a wood block stamp (what?) and colored with Copic markers and a white Wink of Stella pen. Then I die cut the image with a circle die.

The sentiments was stamped and cut out with a circle die.

Supplies:

  • Rubber Stampede Santa Profile
  • Copic markers
  • Wink of Stella – white
  • Spellbinders circle dies
  • Clearly Besotted Say What? stamp set

Rubberstampede Santa Profile

Howdy! I finally got another Christmas card done and I used the sketch from Build Your Stash Holiday Cardmakers group in Facebook.

Clearly Besotted Say What?

This is a fairly quick card to make. I stamped the Santa and colored it with Copics and a white Wink of Stella pen. A little secret about my card.. I spilled a little water on the Santa after I colored it but it just made it without very much damage.

The sentiment is stamped.

All of the circles were cut out using dies.

Supplies:

  • Rubber Stampede Santa Profile wood block stamp
  • Copic pens
  • Wink of Stella White
  • Clearly Besotted Say What?

Polkadoodles Gnome

And another one for the Coffee Loving Cardmakers hop. I might of broken a record this time.

Here is a card I made with a stamp set that I got Tuesday at Creative Escape in Los Gatos, CA. They have so many great things to choose from! Very well stocked.

It is a stamp set by Polkadoodles which has several really cute gnome stamps. Gnomes, mushrooms and coffee what is not to love! Technically it is called Gnome for Tea but I think anything can go in that cup, coffee, tea, hot chocolate or even water (not as much fun).

I stamped the image and colored it in with Copics.

I layered up some papers from my stash and the image is raised up with foam.

The sentiment is also from the stamp set.

Supplies:

  • Polkadooodles Gnome for Tea stamp set
  • Copic markers
  • Lawn Fawn Plaid paper

Rubbernecker Stamps Preston Coffee Card

Hello! I finally got a coffee card done. I created it for the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Hop.

I created my card using the cute Preston coffee owl stamp from Rubbernecker Stamps. I won 3 coffee owl stamps and this guy hasn’t been used. Time to get that going on.

 

Spellbinders Stack O' Cups die

The idea just popped in my head to having him balancing on a coffee cup. Who knows where these things come from… ha.  Maybe a little quirky.

For the background I stamped Preston and then I used Distress Oxide ink over a stencil. I wanted to pop up Preston but I needed to stamp him on the background to get his legs, the coffee steam and feathers sticking up on his head. I wasn’t going to hand cut those out.

I stamped Preston on another piece of paper colored him with Copics. I then cut him out by hand and glued him over the stamped image on the background using foam tape.

The coffee cup is die cut and then a die was used to cut out the design on the cup. The cup itself is teal but kind of looks green in the photo. I colored in the design using a Copic pen. The cup was already glued down when I decided to stencil the background so I made a mask to cover the cup while inking over the stencil.

The sentiment is stamped.

Supplies:

  • Rubbernecker Stamps Preston
  • Janes Doodles Coffee Time – sentiment stamp
  • Spellbinders Stack O’ Cups die set
  • Carta Bella Plaid 1 stencil
  • Distress Oxide ink
  • Copic markers

Hero Arts February 2021 My Monthly Hero

Hello… Today I have a card with a gift card pocket on the front. This is for the Stay Crafty with Hero Challenge #20 with a theme of gift card holder. This is a mini slimline card. Kind of odd in the photos it looks like there is a spot on the background in front of the bird but there isn’t.

Hero Arts Long Leaves stencil

I checked in on the Stay Crafty with Hero Challenge with a few hours until it ended. An idea just popped in my head quickly. Not the usual.

I decided to use a tag to make the pocket (card holder) to slip a gift card behind on the front of the card. It is a bit of a tight fit but it works.

For the background I ink blended some Distress Oxide ink on Bristol paper. I laid a stencil over the top and blotted over it with a baby wipe to remove some of the ink. It left a subtle pattern which I think is just right for the card. I had something else going but it was to much!

I die cut a tag and did some ink blending on it to create a sand and sky background. I stamped several of the images from the Hero Arts February 2021 My Monthly Hero kit and colored them with Copics. I then die cut those images and glued them to the scene. This is my first time using this kit and there are so many fun images. I wasn’t going to get it but then did and boy I am happy about that.

I then glued the assembled tag to the card front. I just barely glued the widest edges down the side and a bit at the bottom so I could slip a gift card behind it.

The sentiment is stamped and it is from the kit.

Hero Arts Nasturtium Mini Slim Line Card

Howdy!

I have a mini slimline card for you today. I haven’t made that many slimline cards so far. I made this for the Hero Arts Scramble group in Facebook. The theme this time is mini slimline 3 1/2 X 6.

Hero Arts It's Your Day

To begin my card I ink blended over a stencil.

I then stamped the flower image right on top of that. My intention was to just color everything in since the background green is kind of light. I tried that and decided the flowers weren’t looking right. You know the right and left turns of making a card. I colored all the leaves in with Copics right over the background. For the flowers I also colored with Copics but I stamped them on a separate paper and hand cut them out. Then I glued them over the stamped image on the card.

The sentiment is stamped.

Entered in the Love Handmade Cards challenge in Flickr for March.

Snowman Snowglobe Christmas Card

And one more card using the sketch from Build You Stash in Facebook.  I enjoyed using this sketch!

The cute snowman in the snowglobe is a peel off sticker. Easy coloring that I did long ago with Copics.

The base of the card is shiny and silver which is kind of hard to see in the photo.

The two snowflake panels are stamped and heat embossed using silver embossing powder. I love seeing red and lighter blue together.

The sentiment is also stamped and heat embossed.

Simon Says Stamp Brutus Monroe Bounty of Wreaths

And now.. a Christmas card. Slowly adding to my Christmas card stash.

For my card today I used some papers from my stash that I was lucky to win from the Build Your Stash Holiday Cardmakers group in Facebook. I used a corner rounder on the two layers.

I stamped the wreath and colored with Copics, Glaze pens and metallic pens. I die cut the wreath with the die that goes with the set. The wreath has foam tape behind it to add some dimension.

I stamped the greeting that was also in the stamp set and heat embossed in black.
