Happy 30th

This is the other of the two cards I made for my sister’s birthday this year. I decided it was time to try a full panel shaker card. I’ve seen a few others make these recently so I played around a little bit to see if I could work it out. I think it turned out alright and it’s such a fun card to give away!

The background is made with distress oxide inks and then I used a background stamp from MFT Stamps on the top part of the background in a slightly darker turquoise colour. I used various sequins and blings for the shaker area and then I added a sentiment and a coloured Tiddly Inks image on top.

RAM Animal train

Today is the release day for this month’s new digital stamps in Rachelle Anne Miller’s online shop (aff. link). I simply had to pick this adorable train stamp to colour up! I opted for making it all into a baby card and used the big letter dies by MFT Stamps, where I distressed the bottom half, and added a baby chipboard over the top of it. The small enamel stars are by Altenew.

Copics used: E00, E02, E13, E15, E41, E42, E43, E44, E71, E74, E79, BG11, BG13, BG15, BG18, BG99, RV10, RV32, RV34, RV17, Y32, Y35, Y38, N0, N1, N3

Birthday penguin

I have another fun card to share today. I’ve used a background stamp from Simon Says Stamp together with a Pinkfresh stencil and some Distress Oxide inks to create the background. Both the penguin stamp and the die cut border are from MFT Stamps and the sentiment is from Avery Elle. To finish it all off I used some Altenew enamel dots.

This card has been entered into the following challenge:

Polkadoodles summer winnie

It has been cold here lately, but the sunshine that has come with really brightens everything. It does make me want summer, though, so I’ve made a summer themed card for today. The stamp is by Polkadoodles and is called Winnie Summer Day.

The card itself is simple, as usual, with a thicker frame, and then a doily, two die cuts where one is with the sentiment from the Everlasting Sentiments set, and a few sequins making up the embellishment. I’ve used some foam tape on both the coloured panel and the sentiment strip.

Below is another photo of the card where you can see the dimensions a bit better.

RAM paper plane

It is time for my second DT project this month for Rachelle Anne Miller. What also happened today is that MFT Stamps has announced that from the start of February they will be selling Rachelle’s illustrations as stamps! How cool is that? For today’s project I’ve used the paper plane with the two kids. I made this card inspired by a card I made last autumn and hand cut the stamp for a change. I used two distress oxides for the sky together with a self-made circle stencil and MFT’s cloud stencil, and then I put the clouds, plane and sentiment on form pads
