Hello Bluebird - Team Share North Star Reveal

Hello everyone. Today is Day Four of Team Share days over at Hello Bluebird and today we are showcasing the brand new North Star stamp set. This is the perfect New Year's stamp set that features five characters as well as some constellation stamps. This is such a cute and unique stamp set and honestly it's one of my favourites. 


To start off my card today I stamped out my images from North Star and also the trees from Yeti or Not and coloured them in with Copic Markers. I then went ahead and fussy cut out all my images (there are coordinating dies, I just don't have them as of yet).

(Copic Markers Used: E95, E97, E99, E07 / YG61, YG63, YG67 / E42, E43, E44, E47 / W0, W1, W3, W5)

For my background, I decided to use a stencil from MFT to create the background, just because it was easier, but of course you could use the Hill and Dale Dies if you would like to create your own stencil.


I used Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry, Dusty Concord, Chipped Sapphire, Blueprint Sketch, Peacock Feathers and Black Soot for my layered inking. I then flicked on some water and dried it off with a heat tool. I then white heat embossed the sentiment and other constellation images onto the background. 

Lastly, I added foam tape onto the backs of all the images and adhered them into place and then adhered the entire panel onto a white card base. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I'll see you soon.

Penguin Palace - Welcome, Little One

Hello friends, today I'm back on my blog for Penguin Palace using their Welcome, Little One stamp set. This is the perfect baby themed set with lots of adorable images and even cuter sentiments. 


To start off my card today I stamped out my images, coloured them with Copics and cut them out using the coordinating dies

(Copic Markers Used: R81, R83, R85 / R000 / E000, E00, E21 / BG10, BG11, BG23 / C0, C1, C3 / 0 / Y000, Y00, Y23 / Y11, Y13, Y18)


Next I made a white card base and stamped out the feet images from the same set with pink ink at a diagonal. I then added foam tape onto the backs of my images and adhered them into place in the centre of my card. 


Lastly, I stamped the two sentiments above and below the cluster with black ink. 

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you feel inspired and I'll see you next week.

25 Days of Christmas Tags (Hello Bluebird)

Hello crafty friends, today I'm here again to participate in Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags event. Today's inspiration comes from Hello Bluebird


I started off with stamping out my images from the Snow Play stamp set, colouring them in with Copics and cutting them out using the coordinating dies

(Copic Markers Used: YG03, YG23, YG67 / B01, B02, B16 / W3, W5, W7 / R17, R24, R29 / Y13, Y18, Y38 / W0, W2, W4 / E53, E57, E59 / E50, E51, E53 / YR12, YR16 / BG11, BG23, BG49 / RV13, RV25, RV19 / R000, R30 / C00, C0, 0 / C7 / W00, W1)


Next I die cut four tags from watercolour cardstock and four from regular white cardstock. I used the Hill and Dale dies on the plain white tags for the snow at the bottom of each tag. I then stamped the 'Season's Greetings' sentiment from the Snow Play stamp set onto the tags and white heat embossed them.


I then ink blended Evergreen Bough Peacock Feathers and Cracked Pistachio Distress Inks onto each of them. I flicked some water on top, picked it up with a paper towel and dried it off with a heat tool. I added foam tape onto the backs of all the snow drifts and images ands adhered them into place. 


Lastly I threaded through some twine at the tops of the tags and tied a bow using some hemp cord.

25 Days of Christmas Tags (Sunny Studio Stamps)

Hello friends, today I'm back to share some more tags for Tracey NcNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags event. Today's inspiration is from Sunny Studio Stamps.


For my tags I decided to use the Happy Owlidays stamp set. I stamped all my images, coloured them with Copic Markers and die cut them all out using the dies. I also cut extra white die cuts for the backers. 

(Copic Markers Used: YG03, YG23, YG67 / YR12, YR16 / E50, E51, E53, E55, E57 / BG11, BG23, BG49 / R17, R24, R27, R29, R56, R59)

Once they were die cut out, I adhered them altogether using adhesive. I also adhered the white die cuts onto the backs of each of the tags, so they would be clean and have somewhere to write on.


For the sentiment I white heat embossed 'Happy Owlidays' onto some black pieces and cut a banner end on each of them. I punched holes through the sentiment tag and also through the wreath. I threaded twine through and used plain twine to tie a bow on each. 

That finished up my tags for today, I hope you enjoyed them. I love creating tags from images like this - makes them super fun and unique. 

Make sure you head over to Tracey's blog for more information and inspiration.

Pretty Pink Posh Blog

Now that all of those details are out of the way, let's move onto the project I made.

------------------------------------------------

I used the Penguin Pals stamp set for today's project to make a penguin tree. I do this every year without fail and these penguins were just screaming to be made into a Christmas Tree, so that's what I decided to do. 


To start off my project today I stamped, coloured and die cut out all my penguins and accessories. Then I used the 'Merry Wishes' sentiment that I previously cut apart and white heat embossed it onto a piece of watercolour cardstock. 

(Copic Markers Used: W3, W5, W7 / W00, W0, W1 / E53, E57, E59 / C1 / YR14, YR07 / R14, R24, R27 / RV13, RV25, RV19 / YG03, YG23, YG67 / R000 / 0 / BG10)


Next I used Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire to ink blended over the background. I then flicked on some water and dried it off with a heat tool. 

I then added foam tape along the backs of all the images and adhered them into place adding their little hats as well. 


Lastly, I used the new Berry Bright Confetti Mix and sprinkled some around my project.

Penguin Palace - Hedgehogs in Love

Hi friends, today I'm back for Penguin Palace with a 10 minute card to share with you all. I'll be using the Hedgehogs in Love stamp set along with Distress Inks to create my card today. 


To start off my card today, I cut a square of watercolour paper, a circle and a hill piece and ink blended them in with Distress Inks. I used Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire for the sky. Pumice Stone and Hickory Smoke for the moon and Shabby Shutters and Mowed Lawn for the hill. Once they were ink blended I flicked on some water and dried them off with a heat tool. I then adhered them together using flat adhesive and foam tape. 


I then used the Hedgehogs in Love stamp set and stamped out the hugging pair. I then coloured them in with a couple of Copic Markers and die cut them out using the coordinating dies

I then added foam tape along the back and adhered it onto my scene. For the sentiment I used black ink and stamped the 'Sending Hedgehugs' on the bottom underneath the pair and that finished up my card for today. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed my super simple and  easy 10 minute card for today. 

See you soon.

25 Days of Christmas Tags (Birch Press Design)


Hi friends, today I have some tags to share with you all for Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags. Today is inspiration from Birch Press Design and I'm so excited to share these tags with you today. 


So a little while ago I used this Radiant Ornament Layering Set and I thought they would make great simple, easy tags so that's what I decided to do today. I used an inspiration image from Pinterest to help choose my Christmass-y colours today. 


To begin my tags, I started off with cutting all three layers from some green, red and browny-grey cardstock. I layered them all together in different combinations and adhered them together using liquid glue. I then also die cut the toppers from coordinating cardstock as well. 


To create the backers I adhered these tags onto some light brown/cream cardstock and then cut around them with some scissors. I then threaded through coordinating colours of twine and that pretty much completed my tags today.


Of course you could add a sentiment on them, if you would like too. But in this case, I left them plain as I liked them just the way they were. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today - please go ahead and check out Tracey McNeely's blog to hear all the details of this amazing event. 

See you soon!

Penguin Palace - Bee Happy

Hi friends, today I'm back for Penguin Palace using the Bee Friends stamp set. 


I started off with stamping out my images from the Bee Friends stamp set and colouring them in with Copic Markers. Once they were coloured I die cut them out using the coordinating dies

(Copic Markers Used: Y11, Y15, YR23 / E55, E57, E59 / R30, R32, R35 / YG03, YG23, YG17 / B0000, B000 / 0 / W3, W5, W7)


For my background I used a combination of Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Salty Ocean Distress Inks onto a piece of watercolour paper, flicked it with water and dried it off with a heat tool. I then cut down two white cardstock pieces to 1 3/4" tall and 4" wide each. 

I first stamped the sentiment 'Don't Worry, Bee Happy' from the set with black ink onto the top white piece, and then added foam tape along the back of the white pieces and adhered it to the top and bottom of my inked panel. 


Lastly, I adhered my images on the inside of my panel to create a small scene. I then adhered the entire panel to a card base to finish up. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today. The release is coming soon, so make sure you check out he store for more information. 

See you soon!

Penguin Palace - You Deserve The Best

Hi friends, today I'm sharing a card I made for Penguin Palace. Penguin Palace has just opened up their store and I'm so excited to be apart of their design team. 

I used the Take A Break stamp set along with some of their papers to create this simple card. 


To begin my card today I stamped a couple of images from the Take A Break stamp set and coloured them in with Copic Markers. I then cut them out using the coordinating dies and added foam tape to the backs. 

Next I took some of their cardstock, a Navy Seal and Cool Metallic and cut strips. I adhered them onto a card base with flat adhesive on a slight angle. 


I then added my images on top and stamped the 'you deserve the best' sentiment along the top of the paper stripes. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today, head over to Penguin Palace to see all their brand new stamps  that are coming soon and hopefully there is something you like! 

See you soon,
