Fairy and Her Bunny | Whimsy Stamps + Video

Happy Friday everyone! I have a new card and video to share with you featuring Whimsy Stamps.  I totally adore all these gorgeous images from Marina Fedatova’s Fairy line. They are so sweet and delicate and they pair up just beautifully with all of Whimsy  Stamps’ sentiments and especially their background stamps and stencils.

For this particular card, I was trying to channel Spring, as it has still not arrived here in Quebec. We just had another bout of freezing rain and woke up to snow on the ground….again. It is the middle of April and my kids are home because school had to be cancelled due to all the ice on the roads. Where are the tulips and buds on the trees?  So, as I was saying, I guess I am going to have to try to create a little bit of Spring magic here in my craft studio and hope that it will soon appear for real!!

I had colored up this cutie and cut the Neenah cardstock to measure 4.0” x 5.25”. More and more, I am liking CAS cards (Clean and Simple). They really let the image be the star of the card.  I did want to add some type of background but, truth be told, I felt too lazy to create a mask for the image.  Then I realized that I could use the Farmhouse stencil and carefully sponge the ink around the image without adding ink on top of the image. I used 3 different distrss inks: Twisted Citron Distress Oxide, Peeled Paint and Mowed Lawn. This gave dimension and texture to all the leaves and made it seem like this little fairy and her bunny friend are nestled amongst some fresh, leafy greenery.  By using the smaller sponge dauber as opposed to the larger ranger sponge blenders, I was able to be very precise in where I added the ink! I love how easy this was to do and how dramatically it transformed the image.

The last step was to add the sentiment. I picked a couple of the words from the Farmhouse Wreath Clear stamp set. I love the font and how easily you can mix and match the different words to create your own unique, personalized sentiment. The very last thing I did was to add some clear adhesive rhinestones for a touch of sparkle!

Thanks for stopping by!  I was happy to have the time and the energy to be a little bit more chatty. These last months have been hard on me and I have had no energy….it has been hard to stay on top of our lives, let alone write creative blog posts. Thanks for staying and sticking with me!

Tea Time Picnic | Mama Elephant + Video

Happy Wednesday everyone! Again, it has been a while since my last posting but I was actually pretty sick. Hopefully that is all behind me now and I can get on with crafting a little bit more.

I fell in LOVE with this set when I first saw it and I did’t even think twice about it….I knew that I needed the stamp and die set! I think that I am going to get a lot of use out of it because it lends itself so beautifully to scene card as well as little mini cards (I have an idea in the works). My how-to video as well as the supply list can be found right after these photo stills!

Stars Celebration Card | Whimsy Stamps + Video

Happy Wednesday! I know. You are probably as suprised as I am that I have another video up so quickly after the last one! What can I say?  I actually had time to play in my studio AND I had the inspiration for another card. All thanks to the gorgeous Whimsp Stamps image by Marina Fedatova and the gorgeous (can’t get enough of) stencil that features cascading stars! I love, love how this card turned out. I added some shine and pop by die cutting the “celebrate” word die from Whimsy with some fun metallic foil paper and then added some gold sequins which are from my local $ store!

Let’s get right into it! The how-to video and supply list are right after these photos!

MFT Celebrate Cards | One Stamp Set, Two Cards + Video

Happy Monday! Hope you all had a fabulous weekend! Lately our weekends have been jam packed with things! Hockey tornaments and concerts, oh my! I have started to look forward to the “week” rather than the “week-end”…. at least in terms of relaxation! Anyone else the same? Add to the mix that I am slightly addicted to watching the Olympics and that means that I am WAY behind once again.

SO, this video was filmed prior to Valentines day and does feature a Valentine themed card….I didn’t get it edited in time though. I think that it could still be used as a birthday card for a loved one! Without furthur ado, here are the photo stills, linked supply list, along with the how-to video below!
