Latte birthday card featuring Mint Owl Studio

Hey guys!

I’ve got a #CAS (clean and “simple”) birthday card today featuring Mint Owl Studio’s new Coffee Craze stamp set and new Coffee Bean sequin mix.

You can find my card on the Mint Owl Studio Blog today as well!

To make my card:

  1. I die cut a stitched rectangle from Bristol white paper.
  2. I stamped the coffee cups from the Coffee Craze stamp set towards the bottom of my rectangle.  I used a couple of masks that I made by stamping the coffee cup on a piece of post it note, and fussy cutting it out.
  3. I stamped the heart steam and my sentiment from the Coffee Craze stamp set as well.
  4. I colored in the coffee cups using copic markers.  Then, I colored in a table top using Copic markers, and created a wood grain look.  It’s hard to tell from the photos, but I also colored a little light blue background around the coffee cups as well.
  5. I colored in the red cup with a glitter pen, and then topped all the coffee cups with glossy accents.
  6. Once dry, I adhered the whole panel to a piece of fun foam, then attached it to a white card base.
  7. To finish off my card, I added some sequins from the Coffee Bean mix.

That’s it for me!  I hope you like my card!

DeNami Design Spring Fling Blog Hop

To create my card:

  1. First, I stamped my DeNami Owl Love Birds stamp onto a piece of white cardstock.  I drew a circle around the image using a pencil and a circle die, creating a moon.
  2. I colored in the owls and moon using copic markers.  Then I erased the pencil circle.
  3. Using a post it note, I die cut a circle (the same one I used to draw the moon), creating a mask.
  4. I placed the circle mask above my colored image, and created the night sky using blue inks and an ink blending tool.  I also added splatters of white ink to create the stars.  I  removed the circle mask once dry.
  5. Then, I die cut a rectangle out of a piece of pink cardstock.  Inside of that rectangle, I used Pretty Pink Posh’s storybook 1 die to create a window frame.
  6. I stamped DeNami’s sending you love sentiment onto the bottom of the pink frame with Versamark ink and gold embossing powder.
  7. Using foam tape, I adhered the pink frame above my stamped and colored image.  Then, I adhered the entire piece to a white card base.
  8. To finish off my card, I added some sequins, and colored in the moon with a clear glitter marker (although, it’s hard to make out in the pictures).

SSD Tic-Tac-Toe challenge #6

Hey guys!  I’m back with another tic-tac-toe challenge from Stamping Smiles Designs.  Read more about the challenge on the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge blog and join in!

Challenge 6

For my project, I chose the middle column for inspiration:  glossy accents, clean and simple, and twine.

Here’s what I created:

ahsang SSS TTT shellfish 1

Here’s how I made my card:

  1. I stamped out the clam image from Lawn Fawn’s Year Six stamp set on white cardstock with Memento tuxedo black ink.  I colored them in using copic markers, a white gel pen, and a spectrum noir clear glitter pen.
  2. Using the matching Lawn Fawn die, I die cut the clams, and set aside.
  3. I die cut a scalloped rectangle out of white cardstock using WPlus9’s sunshine layers die.  Then, I stamped the sentiment from the same Lawn Fawn Year Six stamp set.
  4. I attached the clams onto my card.  I popped up the pink clamp with foam tape.
  5. I tied some twine around the scalloped rectangle.
  6. I popped the whole scalloped panel up with some foam tape, and adhered it to an A2 sized card base that I made out of pink cardstock.
  7. To finish off, I added glossy accents to the pink clam.  I also added “water droplets” with glossy accents, but it’s hard to see in the picture.  (There are three on each size of the sentiment, and one to the bottom left of the pink clam.)

I hope you like my card!  Don’t forget to join in this challenge and link up your project on the TTT challenge blog!

Happy Wednesday!

3 bunnies featuring Mint Owl Studio

Hey guys!  I’m back with my second post of the day!

Today, I have a cute bunny card featuring Mint Owl Studio’s Some Bunny stamp set.  While making this card, I was picturing me and my daughters playing outside…my youngest is always wanting piggy back rides.  Don’t forget to check out the Mint Owl Studio blog as well!

Here’s what I came up with:

ahsang MOS 3bunnies 1

ahsang MOS 3bunnies 2

Here’s how I created my card:

  1. I stamped the bunny images from the Some Bunny stamp set onto some bristol smooth white cardstock using Memento tuxedo black ink.
  2. I colored in the images using copic markers, and added a little detail with a white gel pen.  I fussy cut the 3 bunnies, and used a black marker to finish off the edges.
  3. I die cut a stitched rectangle from another piece of bristol.  I used Tim Holtz distress ink in tumbled glass and an ink blending tool to color in the blue sky.
  4. I die cut another stitched rectangle from a piece of bristol, and then die cut a hill into it.  I used Tim Holtz distress ink in mowed lawn and an ink blending tool to color in the hill.
  5. I used a sentiment from the same Some Bunny stamp set onto the bottom of the hill.
  6. I die cut clouds from scraps of bristol and a sun from a yellow scrap of cardstock using WPlus9’s Sunshine Layers die set.
  7. To put together my card, I made a card base out of pink cardstock.  Then, I glued on the sky rectangle.  I attached the hill using foam tape.  I attached the 3 bunnies using foam tape as well.  Then I glued on the outline clouds and the sun.  I attached the remains clouds with foam tape.
  8. To finish off my card, I added some Wink of Stella clear glitter pen to the sun, and then I added sequins from Mint Owl Studio’s  Hearts and Kisses mix and Peach Passion mix.

I hope you like my card!  I love how happy it turned out.

Happy Friday!
