Oodles of Noodles with Megan

 

The Oodles of Noodles Stamp Set has quickly become one of my favorites! It includes adorable critters enjoying some yummy cuisine. A complimentary stamp set was also released this month called Noodle Sayings. (A match made in heaven!)


For my card today, I created a Mega Flipper card using the adorable critter images from Oodles of Noodles, Dim Sum Fun, and Zodiac Chicken Stamp Sets. I stamped the images using alcohol friendly ink, colored them using Copic Markers, and die cut them using the coordinating creative cuts.


To make the Mega Flipper, I die cut Bristol Smooth cardstock using the scalloped rectangles from the Mega Flipper CC. I then masked off the edges using Post It Tape. This maintains a white border around the scenes that gives a beautifully finished look. To create a counter top, I used Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Inks. This is my favorite go to combo to ground a scene because it is a nice neutral combo that goes with almost everything. On the wall, I blended Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, and Lucky Clover Distress Oxide Inks.


Next, I formed the scenes on each panel. I used liquid glue to adhere the images down. I then die cut the main mega flipper piece from Kraft cardstock and adhered the panels to it. 


Creating your own patterned paper is a great way to give a cohesive look to your designs. I used this technique by stamping images from Dim Sum Fun onto a piece of Kraft cardstock. I trimmed it down to fit within the stitched edges of the white scalloped panel that I die cut using Sweet Feline CC. 


I also wanted to tie in the coral tones that I used while coloring the scene components. To do this, I ink blended an A2 sized piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock, as well as, the speech bubbles that I used for the sentiments, with Dried Marigold, Worn Lipstick, and Festive Berries Distress Oxide Inks. The gradient effect looks so cool!

November Release with Vera!

 Hi, there! It's Vera here today and I'll be sharing my project featuring Mama Elephant November stamp release. Just because I can't pick one or two, so I choose to use all the Mama Elephant November releases, LOL! And here they are...


First, I made a birthday card by combining Oodles of Noodles with Noodle Sayings, Lucky Cat, and Sakura Lantern - CC as the panel card.

First, I die cut an A2 background using Basic Rectangles - CC on Bristol card stock and blended with Distress Inks. Then I frame it with Sakura Lantern - CC that I die cut on soft pink paper and colored with Copic markers.  Next, I stamped all images on Copic-friendly paper, cut them out with the coordinating dies, and applied them to the card with foam tape. Besides Noodle Sayings, I also use the "Inside Birthday Messages" stamp to finish the card.  

Next, still using the image from the Oodles of Noodles stamp set, I made a thank you card by paired with Word Cover - TYSM Creative CutsNote of Thanks, and Noodle Sayings set.


And for the last card, I paired the Word Cover - TYSM Creative Cuts with Note of Thanks and Owl are You set.


Thank you for joining me, I hope you enjoy today's inspiration and see you next time!
