Hero Arts Zebra Shaker Card

Hey folks!

My oldest daughter called me this afternoon and asked if I could make a card for her best friend's Mom, because they wanted to surprise her. A "hot pink, zebra print cards with bling." She also told me that they had to meet her Mom in half an hour. That left me 15 minutes. I'm in 5 year old birthday card mode, coloring a cut lil hippo and she's asking for that?  In 15 minutes? No Bueno. I mean, SURE! I couldn't say no. They're 17 year girls, they're broke and they're thinking of someone else. Who can say no to that?  

So in the short amount of time I had to switch my brain from a hippo with a party hat to blinged out zebra print, this is what I came up with. Let me tell ya, no joke, I was a maniac trying to get this done so quickly!

I f you're interested in any of the products I've used, I will have thumbnail links for you at the end of the post!

 

Using the Hero Arts Zebra Stencil and a Ranger Ink Blending Tool, I quickly worked in Ranger-Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Black Soot on Ranger Distress Watercolor Cardstock. I did the same thing on a piece of Simon Says Stamp Doll Pink Cardstock with the matching ink. I then used a Small Stitched Rectangle Die by Lawn Fawn to die cut the center of both pieces. 

I have this basket thats sets on my work table and it holds all of my black ink pads. I figure, why put them away when I use them so much right? So since I was speed crafting, I was literally picking up an extra piece of Neenah White Cardstock that had been die cut (Small Stitched Rectangle Set by Lawn Fawn) off my table while reaching into my basket o' black ink. How's that for multi-tasking? I had grabbed Hero Arts Black Dye Ink and stamped a sentiment from The Big, The Bold and The Happy by Winnie and Walter. Best sentiment stamp set EVER!  

Before I assembled the two shaker panels onto the Simon Says Stamp Black Cardstock Card Base, I went over the Zebra Stripes with Clear Wink of Stella (bling!). I used Grafix Clear Craft Plastic for the shaker window. I threw in a mixture of Pretty Pink Posh Sequins in Sparkling Clear and Craft Medley Sequins in Pink and Black. 

I don't know how much I like it, but I thought the card needed a lil somthin and I was out of time, so I grabbed an extra Peony by Avery Elle I had colored with Copic Markers and put that on with some Scotch Mounting Tape.

Nothing leaves my room without getting it's picture taken, so I took one shot and call it good. 

Aaand done! 

Until next time!

Making An Easy One Layered Card - Featuring Avery Elle and Copic Coloring

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share a suer easy and super fast one layered card with you all!

It's no secret that I love to mask and build up the images on a card. However, sometimes it's great to skip the masking and get the same effect. That's what I've done on my card today folks.

I'm a sucker for butterflies and if you make them rainbow and I will clap my hands like a demented seal. For real. So today I used the Butterflies Stamp Set by Avery Elle and did some basic Copic Coloring (color choices in thumbnail links below) in a rainbow color scheme.

On Neenah White Cardstock, I stamped my images in Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink with my MISTI Stamping Tool. You don't need a MISTI, but I'm a manic and it's almost impossible for me to line up my stamps again with a …

The stamp set I used today is Ah-mazing! It's the Hello Lovely Stamp Set by Concord & 9th and I'm tellin ya folks, if you're looking for something that has a whole lotta wow factor AND is easy, this is your stamp set.

Using my MISTI Stamping Tool, I stamped my Neenah White Cardstock Panel with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink.

There are some really groovy stamps in the set if you wanted to just ink them up and stamp them within the outline image, but I LOVED the idea of coloring this bad boy in.

Using Dies On A One Layer Card + Altenew Majestic Blooms

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share another card with you all! I've done loads of Copic coloring lately and today's card is no different, but I wanted to try some new (to me) as well.

I think Altenew has some of the most amazing flowers on the market. Their design and versatility is ah-mazing. The Majestic Blooms Stamp set by Altenew is actually a multi-layer set, but I climb on the struggle bus every time I attempt this kind of stamping, so I decided to stick with what I'm comfy with and simply use the outline of the flower and color it in with Copic's.


Since, I'm going to color this in with Copic's and I don't want them to bleed through the inside of my card I stamped the flower and leaves on a piece of Neenah White Cardstock with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink. This …
