Alternative Baby Card

Hi everyone, Heidi here, for today’s project I created a baby card with some gender neutral and alternative colours.


To start this fun card I stamped three of the images from the Kennedy Grace Creations “Sweet Baby Mine” stamp set on Strathmore Bristol Smooth Surface paper with Versafine “Onyx Black” ink and I clear heat embossed afterwards. This way the lines stay black and crisp no matter how much water you ad.  
The idea behind this card is that these cuties are the baby's toy animals.

Then I started colouring with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and my Pentel waterbrush. I used the following colours:
Lemon Yellow and Yellow, Bright Yellow and Orange, May Green, Pale Green and Green, Pale Dawn Gray, Haze Blue, Shadow Mauve, Light Gray and Light Blue. I went over the yellow parts of the animals with my “Clear” Wink of Stella and added some white lines with a Gelly Roll Pen for more interest. After the images were dry I fuzzy cut them out with my Fiskars scissors and set them aside.


For my background I wanted to use a technique called “ink smooshing”. Normally I would do that with Distress Inks but this time I wanted to try this technique with my Zig markers. I die cut a stitched rectangle panel from watercolour card stock and used the colours Shadow Mauve (which is a fairly light colour, so I needed to go in several times to make enough of that colour visible) and Pale Dawn Gray.
I love the result and it gives these cute animals a little ground to sit on. Both of the sentiments used on this card are from the same Kennedy Grace Creations stamp set as the animals, I stamped them on the watercolour panel with Versafine “Onyx Black” ink and my MISTI stamping tool.

Next I created a mat from some matching green card stock and adhered the watercolour panel on there with liquid glue. These combined panels I adhered to a linen textured white coloured card base with one millimetre thick foam tape and then arranged the cute animals on the watercolour panel with one millimetre thick foam tape.

And that finishes today’s fun and playful baby card! 
I wish everyone a creative day!

Spreading Kindess card

Hello everyone, Erica on the blog today!

I don't know about you but I've been quite saddened to see so much hatred, friends attacking friends and general unkindness going around lately. Regardless of your political/religious/personal beliefs I think we can all do better with keeping it a bit civilised and perhaps doing less talking and more actions. With that in mind I made this card with a positive message to send out some positive karma into the world.

















Using an A2 panel cut out from Ranger Ink water colour paper, I dusted it generously with my anti-static tool as I was going to heat emboss the gorgeous Just A Rose stamp set. I started by stamping it in the middle with VersaMark ink and dusting it with white embossing powder, also from Ranger Ink. Using a mask I already had, I stamped it again on both sides to create a rose bush border, before adding and setting the embossing powder with my heat tool.

Using a sentiment from Mama Elephant's 'Butterfly Kisses' I st…

Happy Owl-idays!

Hello, everyone! Rachel here with you today!

I'm loving the cute little critters that are going to be coming up in a new release and I think you're going to love them, too. I have a clean and simple creation using a new owl image for you today.


I started my card by masking off a small strip on the right hand side of the card and then blending purple and pink inks into the strip to create an ombre effect. After it had dried, I used a stencil and some texture paste to create my falling snow. I carefully removed my masking paper and then let the texture paste dry.

While I waited, I colored my little owl image and used my Brother Scan N Cut 2 to cut him out. (Have I mentioned lately how much I hate fussy cutting?) When I was sure the card was dry, I used my MISTI to line up my sentiment and stamped it in a bold, black ink. I used some foam tape to adhere my little own beside my sentiment and my card was done!

Thanks for joining me today!
