Trio of cards, featuring Spellbinders Hello Summer Starry Night project kit

Hello crafty friends!  I am so excited to be returning with another guest post on the Spellbinders blog today!  Today, I’m working with the Hello Summer Starry Night project kit, as well as a few other products from Spellbinders.  The kit is packed with lots of great products to make cards for all occasions.  They are gender neutral as well, so you could make cards for anyone using the kit.  When I saw the items for the kit, I knew I had to make an ocean themed card, a galaxy card, and a shaker card.  I will be showing you lots of photos and will have supplies listed and linked down below, but for more details, and info, head over to the Spellbinders blog!

Pinkfresh Studio Holiday Cards blog hop, Day 2

HolidayCardsBlogHop-BlogTop

Hello friends and welcome to Day 2 of the Pinkfresh Studio holiday cards blog hop.  You should be coming from Flóra Farkas’ blog, and after me, is Laura Bassen’s blog.  You can always go back to the Pinkfresh Studio blog if you get lost along the way.  More details on the hop and giveaways will be outlined below.

Today, I created 2 holiday cards using the Home for the Holidays stamp set and the Cityscape die.  I really love this little set, because there is another coordinating stamp set that you can use with the die that isn’t holiday related, and it’s called A Day in the City.

Here are my 2 cards:

For my cards, I used a variety of techniques: copic coloring, ink blending, heat embossing, and shaker card.

For both of my cards, I first die cut the Cityscape panel from Neenah white cardstock.  Then I stamped the buildings and tree.  I also stamped the buildings again on a separate piece of white cardstock because I knew I wanted to Color them, fussy cut them out, and then add them to the the panels with foam tape.  I colored the trees on the card panel itself, so I would have a bit of dimension.  Next I heat embossed the banner and the sentiment, and a few snowflakes.  I also added some white paint splatter to my background and my buildings for a falling snow effect.

1024jungahsang_110218_06

For the first card, I wanted to make a shaker card, and use a more modern holiday color palette.  I’ve seen this color combo in holiday decor in the last couple of years, and I been loving it!  I chose an early morning background sky color scheme with pinks purples and blues to go with my buildings, and I also thought that silver embossing powder would go perfectly!

For my 2nd card, I went with a more traditional color palette, using red, green, and blue. I also decided to go for gold embossing powder, and I added a couple more snowflakes since I wasn’t making a shaker card.

I trimmed the city scape panels a little bit and added them to white card bases.

Peace, Joy, and Mad Love holiday card, featuring Mama Elephant

Hello friends!

Today I’m sharing a holiday card I made using Mama Elephant stamps.

ahsang ME kittytree 2

I am a dog Mom 100%, but when I saw the Oh Kitty Tree stamp in Mama Elephant’s new release, I had to have it!  It is so cute!  I also used the snow flakes and the sentiment from Mama Elephant’s City Sidewalks set.

I will have these stamps and supplies linked below.

ahsang ME kittytree 1

To make my card, I first stamped the kitty tree image with gina k. amalgam ink onto neenah white cardstock.  Then, I colored the image with copic markers.  I didn’t keep track of all the colors I used, but I will list as many as I can remember.

110, C7, C5, C3, C1, C00, W1, W00, E70, E74, YR27, Y21, E50, E21, R20, R24, R46, R39, BG02, BG05, RV21, RV04, & RV06.

After I colored all the kitties, I was undecided on how I wanted to finish my card, so I created a poll on my Instastories on whether I should fussy cut the image out (I didn’t purchase the coordinating dies), or whether I should color the background and make it a one layer card.

Going along with the majority, I decided to carefully fussy cut the image…it was really tough going around the ornaments the kitties on the edges were holding, but I managed to do it!

Next, I decided to concentrate on the background.  First, I used an ink blending tool to get some distress ink on the background.  I used Chipped Sapphire, Salty Ocean, and Spun Sugar…my favorite combo for winter skies.  Then I used Perfect Pearls shimmer spray to get some shine on the background.

Once fully dry, I used some of the snowflake stamps from the City Sidewalk set with white embossing powder to heat emboss the images.

On a separate piece of white cardstock, I used the “peace. joy. and mad love” sentiment from the City Sidewalk set and gold embossing powder to heat set the sentiment.  Then I die cut a snowy hill using the landscape trio dies.

ahsang ME kittytree 3

I put all my background elements together using some foam tape for dimension.  Then, to add an interactive element to my card, and a little bit more fun, I attached the fussy cut kitty tree to my background with an action wobbler.  I will have a video in my Instagram if you’d like to see it in action.

I love love love how this little card came out!  It’ll be hard to let it go, LOL!

Grateful cards, featuring Spellbinders

Hello friends!

Today I am sharing 2 more cards featuring Spellbinders stamps and dies.  If you remember, I shared 2 cards in this post.  For these cards, I used the Spellbinders Grateful Stamp & Die set.  What a cute set!

ahsang spbds grateful 1

Here is card 1:

ahsang spbds grateful 3

For this card, I stamped and colored the images with Copic markers, then die cut them using the coordinating dies.  For the background, I used distress inks in cracked pistachio and mermaid lagoon; I used an old makeup brush that I had lying around to create a softer ink blended look.  I splattered it with water, and dabbed up the water drops with a paper towel to create bleached out spots.  I stamped the sentiment, then cut down the cardstock to size.  I adhered the images at different levels: I adhered the flat grater with glue, the pyramid grater with a foam square, and the cheese with 2 foam squares stacked on top of each other.  To add more interest, I drew a wonky frame around the edge and added a few sequins.

Card 2:

ahsang spbds grateful 4

For this card, I repeatedly stamped the images on a piece of white cardstock, and colored them with Copic markers.  On a piece of black cardstock, I heat set the sentiment with Versamark ink and white embossing powder.  I trimmed the 2 pieces to be the same width.  First I adhered the stamped background onto a white card base with fun foam and double sided tape.  Then I adhered the sentiment piece with foam tape.  To finish off my card, I added a few sequins and star sequins.

I really love how these cards turned out!  Check out the Spellbinders shop for more goodies and inspiration!

Happy Thursday!

Tied in Knots cards, featuring Spellbinders

Hey friends!  I cannot believe it’s August already!

Today I’m sharing a couple of cards that I made with the Spellbinders Twisted Stamp & Die Set.  The pretzel die and the mustard stamp are too cute!

Here’s what I created:

ahsang spbds twisted 1

Here is card 1:

ahsang spbds twisted 3

I started off by repeatedly stamping the mustard bottle on a piece of white cardstock.  Then I used 2 different yellow distress inks for a little ink blending action on top of the stamped cardstock.  Next, I die cut the pretzel from white cardstock 4 times.  On one of the pretzels, I ink blended some brown distress ink on top.  I used a few shades of Copic markers to create the shadows, and a white gel pen to draw on salt.  I glued all the pretzels together, with the colored one on top, to create thickness and dimension.  On a piece of black cardstock, I heat set the sentiment with Versamark ink and white embossing powder.  Next it was time to assemble.  I cut the background panel down to size, then I adhered it to a white card base with fun foam and double sided tape.  I cut down the black sentiment piece down to size, and adhered it to the background with fun foam.  Lastly, I glued the pretzel on top.  I really love how this card turned out!

Card 2:

ahsang spbds twisted 4

I stamped the mustard bottle on white cardstock, colored it with Copic markers, and die cut it using the coordinating die.  Then I die cut the pretzel 4 times, colored one of them, and glued them together just like I did for card 1.  On a piece of black cardstock, I heat set the sentiment with white embossing powder and Versamark ink.  I trimmed the panel down to size and adhered it to a white card base using fun foam.  I glued the mustard bottle and pretzel on.  To add some finishing touches on my card, I glued on sequins, and drew some “salt” on the background with a white gel pen.

This stamp and die set is so cute, you could make a card as detailed or simple as you want!  Check out the Spellbinders shop for lots of other goodies and inspiration!

I hope you liked my cards!

You’re the best cards, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hello crafty friends!  Today I’m sharing a couple of cards I made using the June 2018 Hip Kit Club kits.  I was challenged to use the Vicki Boutin stamps and dies from this month’s Color kit, and I decided it was a perfect opportunity to make handmade cards.

Here are the cards I created:

ahsang HKC VBcards 1

I used the Bazzill marshmallow white cardstock from this month’s Cardstock kit, which has a bit of weight to it, so it’s perfect for mixed media and coloring.  I used the HKC exclusive b&w plaid paper from this month’s Main kit, and the Pinkfresh Studio enamel dots from the Project Life kit.

I also used some past HKC color kits to make my cards.  I love getting the color kits, because you get so much use out of them!

Card 1:

ahsang HKC VBcards 2

ahsang HKC VBcards 4

For this card, I stamped the images on the Bazzill cardstock with Memento tuxedo black ink, and colored them with Copic markers.  Then, I die cut the flowers using the included metal dies and fussy cut the leaves and butterflies.  On the background, I used a stencil that was included in the April Color kit, and white texture paste that I mixed with a little Distress Oxide ink in the color Cracked Pistachio, which was included in the February Color kit.  It’s hard to tell in the photos, but I created a bit of an ombre effect, more color on the bottom fading to almost white on top.  I love the way it came out!

Card 2:

ahsang HKC VBcards 3

ahsang HKC VBcards 5

For this card, I stamped the images on the Bazzill cardstock with Versamark ink, and I heat embossed it with white embossing powder which was included in the November 2017 Color kit.  Then I colored in the images with Vicki Boutin watercolor paints, which were in the March Color kit.  I splashed some watered down white acrylic paint on the flowers.  Once dry, I die cut the flowers with the coordinating metal dies.  For the background, I chose the HKC exclusive b&w plaid paper.  I also added some pink and black enamel dots to finish off the card.

For both sentiments, I stamped the “you’re the best” sentiment from the Vicki Boutin stamp set, and heat embossed it with Versamark ink and white embossing powder on black cardstock.  I cut the sentiment out into a banner shape, and adhered it to my cards using foam squares.

That’s it for me today!  I hope I inspired you to get crafty!  Even though I used these stamped and colored images on handmade cards, they would totally work on scrapbook layouts too!

Happy Friday!

Hello Bluebird card trio, featuring Butterfly Reflections Ink

Hey friends!  Today I’m guesting on the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog with a trio of no-line coloring cards.  I used Hello Bluebird stamps McGregor’s Garden and Spring Script.

If you follow my Instagram, you’ll know that I was practicing my no-line coloring, and I ended up coloring these cute bunnies with 3 mediums: watercolor, color pencils, and Copic markers.
