Hoppy Birthday Froggy Friends

Hello everyone! Lexa here to share a card featuring Froggy Friends stamp and it's coordinating dies. Many of you may have seen couple of inspirations using this stamp set. Since it's really so much fun, I can't resist to play with these adorable Froggy Friends once more. The little elements in this stamp set are perfect to build scenes, it has everything you need.

​I started my card with a 4"x5.25" panel and start to blend some inks to create the scene. I use several Distress Inks, Salty Ocean for the pond, Mowed Lawn for the grass and Tumbled Glass for the sky. I stamp the grassy border from Sunny Sentiment Stamp with green dye ink, the smiley sun and the bee are also from the same stamp set. I also use the bee's trail from Backyard Bugs Stamp, and yes I mix three stamp sets for this card. The hopping frog is actually can wiggle because I adhere him to a piece of tri-folded acetate. I hope you got the idea after see this picture below.


I stamped all my images with Versafine black ink and watercolor them with Distress Markers. I also add some dimensions with glossy accent on some details. I think a happy card like this will make anyone's day.


Thank you so much for stopping by today. I wish you an awesome day!

Hippo Birdie To You

Hello everyone! Have you heard a big new from Lawn Fawn yet? They have a challenge blog now starting this March, it's called Lawn Fawnatics. I'm so excited about this. So here's my first card for the challenge with birthday theme.



 

I used oldies sets from Lawn Fawn, I mixed several stamp sets to create this card. I always love to mix and match them to create a fresh new look for my card. The pun sentiment is one of Lawn Fawn's style and I always giggle caused they are so creative! I created the watercolor background with a loose technique using Gansai Tambi Watercolor. Last but not least, I add some gorgeous sequins from Pretty Pink Posh, it's called Friendship Mix Sequins.

Highlighting Sun Ray Dies

Hello crafty friends! Lexa here today with a card that highlight the Sun Ray Dies and I'm pairing it with Easter Wishes. The Sun Ray dies actually pretty versatile, you can try to think out of the box, your imagination is the only limit.

 

I start my card with a piece of 4.25"x5.5" white cardstock and blend Tumbled Glass Distress Ink for the sky. I die cut the sun ray on two tones of yellow cardstock, I trace the circle lightly with pencil and adhere the rays one by one. It's actually a lot easier than it seems, mine is far from perfect but after I finished the whole card everthing looks alright.
I stamped all the images with Versafine black ink and watercolor them with Distress Markers. After finish with the coloring, I use the coordinating dies to die cut all the images. I always love to pop everything out, the white border around the images are perfect. The grass border on the front is added the last to add more dimension. The bunnies from Easter Wishes are my favorite, they look so adorable and fluffy. Here's a closer look...


Thank you so much for stopping by today, I hope you enjoy today's post and I wish you all an awesome day!

Fill My Days With Rainbows


Hi everyone! Lexa here today with a colorful card to brighten your day. I'm showcasing the new Color Me Happy Stamps, It's such a great set with various sentiments that you can use all year around. I love how cheerful and positive all the sentiments are.



I mixed up two stamp set for this card, Rain or Shine and Color Me Happy. I'm so glad to find out that the older stamp sets could coordinate well with the new ones. My card tells a story about there's a rainbow after rains, so don't you worry about a thing. I started with a 4.25"x5.5" white card base and blend them with Pumice Stone, Shaded Lilac, Tumbled Glass Distress Inks. I also sprayed some water to create faded colors on some spot.I stamped all my images with Versafine black ink on a piece of watercolor paper and colored them all with Distress Markers. To create a bokeh effect, I die cut circles using Sun Ray Dies on vellums. I stamped some raindrops with blue dye inks to complete my story that the rain just stopped and a beautiful rainbow appear.

Here's a closer look of my card. Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Turtley Birthday


Hello everyone! Lexa here today with a card starring Turtley Awesome. It's a mini stamp set but not less cuter than other ones. Both turtles are looking at each other, absolutely versatile for any occasions. As for my card today, I mixed it with Easter Wishes to build up the scene around the turtles.


I created a three windows shaker card with different colors, I blended the background with Salty Ocean, Wild Honey, and Twisted Citron Distress Inks. I choose matching sequins for each window. I stamped all my images with Versafine black ink and watercolor them with Distress Markers. After I finished with the coloring, I die cut all of the images using the coordinating dies. The turtles are wearing birthday hat and one of them carrying present on his back, adorable! I also add googly eyes for both of them. Here's a closer look..


That's all for today, thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day.

Spring Friends Make Good Times Better

Hello crafty friends! Lexa here with a card show casing Easter Wishes stamp and it's coordinating dies. This set probably one of my favorite on the new release. It's not only perfect for Easter cards but also looks good for an everyday card just like I made today.


First, I stamp all the images with Versafine black ink and watercolor them with Distress Markers. These cuties are hanging out in the flower garden in spring time, I also add those rosy cheeks for them. I blend some green dye ink for the ground, also mask some Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick Distress Inks with a polkadot stencil for the background. It looks so sweet. As I want to make a friendship card instead of Easter's card, I choose a sentiment from Friends & Family stamp set to go with the critters.


Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope you have a wonderful day!
