Mama Elephant Yeti Scene

Welcome back everyone! I just can’t get over this adorable Yeti from Mama Elephant. My card today is creating a winter night time scene.

I’m using the stamp set Me & My Yeti from Mama Elephant. The first thing I do is create a mask for my moon. I used the Stackable Circles die and Simon Says Stamp Masking paper. I apply my circle mask to a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock measuring 4″ x 5 1/4″. Next, I ink blend Stormy Sky, Mermaid Lagoon, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot Distress ink. I build up my color keeping the darkest colors to the outside. Then I remove the mask and lightly go over the moon with Stormy Sky Distress Ink. To finish off the sky, I flick on some white paint with a paint brush for a snowy sky effect and spritz with Shimmer Spritz.
My images are stamped onto Neenah White carstock with MFT Extreme Black Ink then colored with copic markers. I like using the stippling technique for this which means I’m just adding dots to add color to my image. This also gives the look of texture and I think is a really fun look!
I also stamped the banner from Sentiments From a Yeti stamp set and used the coordinating die to cut it out. I added a hill to my sky background using a Stitched Hillside Die and White Glitter cardstock.  I tucked my trees behind the hill and added my Yeti to the front with foam tape. I layered my panel with white cardstock and added to a cardbase I created with Blue Denim Cardstock. For a little more sparkle, I added a Nuvo Shimmer Pen to the stars and then covered the stars with Crystalline Drops from Gina K Designs.
How sweet is it with the Yeti holding that banner?! 
Copic Colors Used: B01, B00, B000, B0000, R21

Decorative Ornaments – Pretty Pink Posh

Welcome back everyone! I have a card to share today using the Decorative Ornaments stamp set from Pretty Pink Posh.
There is also an accompanying video you can view down below or HERE on my Youtube channel walking through how I created this card.
To start my card, I stamped my three ornaments in Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink. I used my Misti tool to stamp my images which plays a key part in my technique for today. Once my images are stamped, I will leave my stamps on the Misti tool. Then I color my images with copic markers.
Once colored, I take my cardstock and put it back into the Misti. I ink up the images with Simon Says Stamp Clear Embossing Ink and heat emboss with Gold Embossing Powder. This gives my image a gorgeous gold outline. You don’t really want to try and color with the lines embossed as that can ruin your markers and also the alcohol ink can eat away at the embossing powder. It’s best to try and emboss after your color which is why the Misti tool plays such a huge part.
Once embossed, I die cut with the coordinating die. My background I stenciled on the English Brick Wall stencil with Pumice Stone Distress Oxide Ink.
The sentiment is from the Happy Snowman stamp set which I heat embossed with White Embossing Powder and then trimmed to a thin strip using the Sentiment Labels Die
I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration! If you are reading this on the day the card is posted be sure to head over to Pretty Pink Posh where they are having a Cyber Monday Sale!

Happy Brrrthday – The Birthday Project MFT

Welcome back everyone! I needed a birthday card for my brother before I head out to visit the family for Thanksgiving. This also fit right along with The Birthday Project challenge over at My Favorite Things.
My images are stamped from the Ready Set Snow stamp set onto Neenah white cardstock with MFT Extreme Black ink. Then colored with copic markers and cut out with the coordinating die. 
I ink blended a background hoping to resemble the Northern Lights. I used Twisted Citron, Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot Distress Oxide inks. Then splattered with white paint for a snowy effect. Once that was done, I sprayed the background with Iridescent Glitter Dust for lots of sparkle! 
I die cut some slopes using the Stitched Hillside and Downhill Slope die. I added just a smidge of Tumbled Glass to the tops of the hills for some definition.
To finish off the card, I added the sentiment by stamping onto Blue Jay cardstock and white heat embossing. I die cut this using the Slanted Sentiments die and added to my card with a double layer of foam tape.
Mark this in the books that I made a birthday card! I need to make more. I hope you enjoyed today’s card. If you are celebrating Thanksgiving, have a Happy Thanksgiving and if you are not celebrating this holiday, I hope you have an amazing weekend!

Save these images to Pinterst for future reference.

Christmas Ornaments – Lawn Fawn

Welcome back everyone! I have some fun Christmas tags to share with you today using goodies from Lawn Fawn.
I love making handmade gifts for teachers. I wanted to do something unique for all teachers and aids that work with my children and these ornaments are perfect.
I have a video walking you through the complete process that you can view down below or up on my Youtube Channel.
The main set that I’ll be using to create these ornaments is the How U Bean stamp set and Add On.
I used a variety of stamp sets for my images including Simply Celebrate Winter, Say What Christmas Critters, Fairy Friends and Ready Set Snow. 
A few of the ornaments I used pattern paper from the Really Rainbow Christmas paper pack and ink blended a few using Bristol cardstock and Distress Oxide inks.
A few of them I even added a small hill with Pixie Dust cardstock and a Stitched Hillside Border.
You could certainly turn these into shaker cards but I actually found I prefered it as a simple window ornament.
I forgot to take pictures of the back but I have a To and From stamped on the back so I can personalize it.
I finished them off by decorating the front with the Large Wreath die and some glitter cardstock.
Be sure to take a look at the VIDEO! I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration.
