Page Huggers with Vera

Hello! Vera here and I have a designer series project to share with you featuring PAGE HUGGERS stamp set along with the coordinating dies. I create a set of card with DIY chalkboard. 


I stamped the images on watercolor paper,  colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush pen and then cut it out with the coordinating dies.  White heat embossed the sentiment from TANDEM EXTRAS set and added real tiny post-it notes on the chalkboard.  I decided to create another card combining with a boy from PRETEND PLAY set. So cute, right?!

Next, I make a blackboard using black gesso as blackboard paint and white heat embossed the sentiment "friend" from WORDS DEFINED set.

S U P P L I E S : 
Here's a video to show how I create the chalkboard using gesso and how I colored the images

Thanks so much for joining with me today!


Page Huggers with Anna

Hello, friends! Anna is here today and I want to share with you my projectsI created with Page Huggers set. I like this set because of its versatility - you make bookmarks or card, or anything else! And for today I prepared a little set of things for teacher. The first one is a card with critters from the set - they are all here to say some kind words to their teacher (I stamped the 'teacher' definition with Words Defined set).

At first on the front panel with the help of the masking paper I stamped some critters and added glasses for everyone - so they look like a band of nerd students!)) Also I colored the background with some bright colors and added some water spots.

As the final detail that adds some dimensions to the card I used the small apple I adhered with the foam tape.

And as an addition to the card I creaed some bookmarks and a holder for them. I stamped all critters from the set, clored them, then I laminated the sheet and cut the critter with the coordinating dies.

For creating the huggers holder I took a piece of the white cardstock, cut one edge with the die from Dotted Details Creative Cuts and fold it. Then I stamped some school aaccessoreis from Page Huggers set with the gray inks. The sweet gift is ready!

Pretend Play with Pamela

Hello! This is Pamela on Mama Elephant's blog for a project using the adorable stamp set Pretend Play. This is the perfect stamp set to create some fun dress up dolls! First, I stamped out the little boy and girl as well as their fun hats. My favourite? The bear hat! I coloured them using copics and double layered them to make sure they're stable.

 I used some thin velcro stripes and cut them down into small pieces. I adhered them to the hair of the little boy and girl, and at the back of all the different hats.

I stamped the perfect sentiment on the card from Surprise Sentiments - Perfect to describe the little gift in the card!

 Now my next problem is to put it together into a card. I stitched a simple pocket using clear acetate sheets to store my little dolls on the card, and another clear pocket to store the hats.

So there you go! A card that has a fun little gift where you can play dress up!

This fancy card calls for a pretty envelope! So I created a very simple envelope that's big enough to store this card.
