Hello Bluebird - Field Mice (Video)

Hello friends, today I have a card for Hello Bluebird Stamps using the new Field Mice Stamp Set.  

I started off with stamping and colouring my images out using Copic Markers. I then cut them out and started work on my background.

(Copic Markers Used: E30, E31, E33, E34 / W00, W0, W1, W2 / BG10, BG11, BG23, BG13 / R12, R14, R24, R27 / YR30, Y23, YR21, YR23 / N2 / R00, R30 / B000 / YG00, YG01, YG23, YG17)

For my background I used a stencil from MFT to create the green hills using Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Ink. I then flipped the stencil and used Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to ink blend a little blue on there too. I cut down the panel to around 3 1/4" wide and added foam tape on the back. I then cut down a piece of blue striped patterned paper and adhered my ink blended background on top. 

I then added adhesive to all my mice and accents and adhered them down into place. For my sentiment I white heat embossed the 'Well, Hello There' onto a black strip of cardstock and adhered it into place. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I'll be back tomorrow wiht another card and video.

Craft Online - Merry Christmas (Video)

Hello friends, today I'm here for Craft Online and I'm making my first Christmas Card of the season. I'll be using the Avery Elle Polar Peek-A-Boo Pals Set along with the Winter Trails Star Dies from Studio Lights.

To start off I stamped out my images using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto white cardstock and then coloured them in with Copic Markers. Once they were coloured I cut them out and adhered the accessories onto each of the critters. 

(Copic Markers Used: R000, R30 / C00, C0, C1, C3, C5, C7, C9 / E50, E51, E53, E55, E57, E59 / E40, E41, E42, E43, E44, E47, E49 / W00, W0, W1, W2, W3, W5, W7 / E97, E07, E08, E09 / B93, B95, B97, B99 / R32, R35, R37, R39 / RV91, RV93, RV95, RV99 / BG90, BG93, BG96, BG99 / YR00, YR20, YR21, YR24 / 0)

I then die cut out the Winter Trails Die from white cardstock and adhered my critters inside the stars. I cut off the excess from the critters that overlapped the other stars, as well. 

Lastly, I took a piece of dark blue/grey striped patterned paper and adhered my scene together using foam tape. I then white heat embossed the 'Merry Christmas' sentiment onto a strip of green cardstock and adhered it into place. 

That finished up my card for today, I hope you enjoyed and I'll see you next time!

For today's card I used the Tropical Toucans Stamp Set and paired it with a few dies; Storybook 1, Tropical Frame and Stitched Notes Die Sets. 

I started off with stamping out all the images from the Tropical Toucan Stamp Set and coloured them in with Copic Markers. I then cut them all out. 

(Copic Markers Used: YR00, YR02, YR12, YR18 / Y11, Y13, Y15, YR15 / R14, R24, R27, R89 / YG01, YG23, YG17, YG67 / BG11, BG13, BG45, BG49 / RV21, RV23, RV25, RV29 / BV01, BV02, BV04, BV08 / W00, W0, W1, W3, W5, W7, W9 / 0 / E51, E53, E55, E57)

Next I took a piece of green cardstock and cut it out with the frame from Stitched Notes. I then used some Mowed Lawn Distress Ink and ink blended at the top and bottom of the green panel just a little. I then used the Storybook 1 Dies and cut it from the centre. I then die cut the Tropical Frame from some vellum and adhered it behind the green frame for a little added interest. I then took some pink cardstock, cut out the centre and adhered it to a white card base. Lastly, I added foam tape onto the back of the frame and adhered it down on the card base as well. 

I then took all my images and adhered them down into place over the frame. I used a little foam tape and liquid adhesive to get some dimension. 

To finish up, I stamped the 'You Can Do It' sentiment on the bottom section of my card and scattered some Luau Jewels around as well.
