Rain Forest Foilage

Good morning, hope you are all still enjoying the heat! I'm so over it now and want fall!!
Today's make is using a freebie from SumMore Fun. The Rain Forest digi stamp is free for a limited time so use the link to grab it!



I printed the digi stamp on to white card and colored with alcohol markers. I then stamped the sentiment which was from the Oops a Daisy stamp set. This was matted onto green card and a white card base.  Lastly I added black dots with a fine tip pen.
Simple card but gave me the chance to do some coloring!

Rain Forest Foliage is available free as a digital stamp for this week only.


It is also available as a rubber stamp in 3 different sizes, if you order the rubber stamp you get a SVG outline of the stamp for free!

Little Yellow Teapot

Good morning, 
We finally got some rain this week which means the lawns are all green again! August is finally here and we are on the count down to school starting again! 

Over at SumMore Fun we have a new moodboard challenge starting and this one is all summery bright colors as well as great pictures see below for more details

First let me show you my design, I have chosen to use the colors from the mood board:


I have used the Victorine Originals Tea Pot stamp. and colored it in different shades of yellow and green markers. I matted my card with some matching colored card and a teacup patterned paper. I then added an action wobbler to my tea pot and adhered it to the center of my card, this means that I can tip my teapot up:


I then added the sentiments around this as well as a few yellow enamel dots.

Etched Daisy

Good morning, Hope it's not too hot where you are, thankfully it's cooled a bit here but not for long!
I'm over on the SumMore Fun today with the Oops a Daisy Raisin Boat stamp set. I have been having fun trying something different:




This is my first attempted at etching a glass. I stamped the image onto a piece of white card which I then taped inside a drinking glass.
Using a permanent marker I traced the stamped image onto the outside of the glass. I then used my rotary tool with a diamond tip to etch the flower onto the glass.


Once I had etched the whole image I used alcohol hand sanitizer to remove any pen marks left and washed the glass to ensure there were no glass fragments.
I did look a site when I was doing the etching. I wore a mask, gloves and safety glasses to ensure none of the glass dust got in my eyes and respiratory tract and gloves in case the glass broke - fortunately it survived!

Butterfly Love

Good morning, Sorry I've been a bit absent lately, life has just been getting in the way and my mojo had flown away but I think today's card may have brought it back.

The new moodboard challenge starts over at SumMore Fun today and the theme is so pretty, you can check it out at the bottom of my post 👇

Onto my card, I have used a Raisin Boat stamp set - Imagine:


I stamped the larger image in the set with 2 different shades of blue. Then the sentiment images were stamped on top of this. I inked the edges of my card to take away the stark white.

The butterflies were die cut using a blue pearlescent acetate, I lifted the wings and adhered them onto the card. I added some silver gems as trails from each individual butterfly.
My topper was matted onto some color coordinating card and a white card base.

Proud

Good morning, it's been a strange week with the 4th being mid week it's thrown all my days out. 

Speaking of Independence Day the moodboard challenge over at SumMore Fun is all patriotic this time round. 
So I have made a card using their Strokes of Pride stamp set which is a Raisin Boat set perfect for the challenge:


I stamped the stars using embossing ink onto shiny card and then embossed with clear powder. I then colored my card with blue ink, polishing it so the stars shone through.
next I used Stayzon ink to add the sentiments.
This was the matted with red card and added to a white card base, keeping to the red white and blue theme in the pictures of the moodboard.
