Whimsical Pegasus

 Hola everyone! Hope your day is going well! Today I am sharing a card I created with the newly released Stardust & Magic stamp set by Sweet Sentiment

I love the sweet, whimsical Pegasus image included in the set. It also has a coordinating die

For my card, I followed a tutorial by the awesome Mindy Eggen to create the bokeh background onto a 4" X 5.25" white cardstock panel. I then adhered the panel to a side-folding A2 card base.

To follow Mindy's tutorial click HERE

To continue, I stamped, colored and fussy cut Pegasus. I went over the the wings with a Spectrum Noir Moonlit Silver Glitter pen to add a nice sparkle! 

I then adhered my whimsical, winged creature to the card and completed with sequins. 


Thanks for taking a peek! I enjoy the rest of your day!

The Best Things in Life are SWEET!!!

 Hola everyone! Hope you are well! Today's Simon Says Stamp Stamptember collaboration is with Hero Arts!

I created a card with the sweet and exclusive Make A Wish clear stamp set. 

I stamped, colored and fussy cut the doughnut from the set 11 times. To each doughnut, I added Crystal Clear Lacquer as glaze, sprinkled with glitter and set aside to dry. 

Next, I matted a 3.75" X 5"white card panel with Peony cardstock and adhered it to a top-folding A2 card base. 

To complete the card, I stamped the sentiment and glued the doughnuts  onto the panel. 

I love how the card turn out! The longest part was waiting for the Crystal Lacquer to dry! 





Hope you were inspired by my card and will give it a try. Be sure grab the set before it sells out. Once it is gone---it is gone! 


Thanks for taking a peek!

Seek Magic in Every Day!

 Hola everyone! Hope you are having a great day!  Today I am sharing a card created with the newly released Magic Potion clear stamp set by Sweet Sentiment. My card was fun to create and I hope you will give it a try. 

To begin, I blended Seedless Preserves, Wild Honey and Twisted Cintron  Distress Oxide Inks onto a 4" X 5.25" white cardstock panel, spritzed it with White Iridescent Shimmer Spray and adhered it to an A2 card base.

 

Next, I die-cut three different sized nested hexagons onto a 4" X 5.25" white card panel and adhered it to the card base

To continue, I die-cut three silver glitter frames for the the hexagons and glued them to the card. 

I stamped, colored and fussy cut (the set does come with coordinating dies) the images from the set and glued them to the card. 

I then die-cut an additional hexagon and stamped the sentiment onto it in black ink. I backed it with silver glitter cardstock and popped it onto the card with foam squares

Santa is Coming to Town!

 Hola everyone! Hope you are have a great Friday! I am still having fun with the Picket Fence Studios August Release. 

I love Christmas time and wanted to get a jump on my cards! 

Today I am sharing a card created with Santa's Coming to Town Cover Plate Die and Slim Line Horizontal English Brick Wall Stencil. It was fun to create and I hope you give it a try.


Using a masking sheet, I die-cut the cover die and placed it onto a 4" X 5.25" white card panel.

Next, I sprayed one side of the stencil with Pixie Dust and placed it onto the card panel. I airbrushed several Copic Marker red colors onto the panel using the Copic Airbrush System.

You may fill in the stencil with any medium you have. Inks or paste will look nice as well. 

To continue, I sprayed Silver Glitter Dust onto the panel. I removed the mask and glued a black die-cut in its place letting a bit of the white peek through. 

I die cut the sentiment in Silver along with a few extra presents and adhered them to the card. 

I then glued the panel to an A2 card base to complete. 

Thanks for taking a peek! Enjoy the rest of your day!

TRIPLE TROUBLE

 Hola everyone! It is August 31st, thus my last day as the Picket Fence Studios Guest Designer this month! I have enjoyed sharing my cards and working with the awesome Picket Fence Studios products.

Halloween is just around the corner so I decided to create a card with the newly released Triple Trouble clear stamp and coordinating die set. It was fun to create and I hope you give it a try. 


To begin, I blended Blue Hawaii, Purple Galaxy, Navy and Intens-ified Black inks onto a 4" X 5.25" Dove White cardstock panel.

I stamped bats from the Triple Trouble set onto the panel and spritzed White Iridescent Shimmer Mist onto the panel. Once dried, I adhered the panel to a side-folding Dove White A2 card base


To complete my card, I stamped, colored and die-cut the pumpkins and popped the onto the card base with foam squares for dimension.

I love how my card turned out and chose not to have a sentiment. 

Thank so much for taking a peek! Enjoy the rest of the week.
