Hooray Wishes with Mette

Mette here today with this elegant birthday card featuring the new Hooray Wishes set and Quick Stripes creative cuts.

Mette Witus Designer Series, June 2020

I really wanted to create a simple card that took full advantage of how easy it is to make a striped background with the new Quick Stripes dies, so I started by cutting the ½ inch stripe from white and grey cardstock and added them to my card base, trimming off the excess as needed.

I stamped my Hooray Wishes people on a piece of white cardstock and cut them out using the label from Union Square. Then I colored them in, making sure I had a pretty gradient in the background too. I added little dots to the background as well to make it more interesting. Then I glued it to the card base, slightly higher than the middle.

For my sentiment, I cut out the Hooray text from the matching dies, once from gold and three times from the same grey cardstock. I glued all of these together to create a dimensional sentiment, which I glued over the top of the colored label.

Then I used the sequin die from Inlaid Balloons dies to cut a few gold sequins, which I used to finish off the outside of my card.

To finish off the entire card, I used one of the Inside Birthday Sayings to stamp a message inside.

Little Mummy Agenda with Keeway

This month Mama Elephant added a couple new sets to their Agenda series, one of them being the Little Mummy Agenda! Add these adorable little guys to create some cute and spooky handmade cards and goods!
 

The Scene Builder set is perfect to go along with any of the agendas and I have used it here to set the backdrop for these mummies through a Tri Window Cover. I started by ink blending three small rectangles of white bristol board with Black Soot and Brushed Corduroy distress oxide inks. Then on each panel, I heat embossed one of the images from the Scene Builder set in white.
 

I stamped all my mummies in a dark brown hybrid ink and colored them with copic markers. Then, I used the coordinating Creative Cuts to die cut each of them out. I don't have many Halloween sentiments so I created my own sentiment out of letters from the Letter Board Creative Cuts to spell out the word 'BOO!'.
 

Each of the little scenes were framed up with the Tri Window Cover that I had die cut out of black card stock adhered with foam tape. I wanted some more interest so I added some white paint splatter and lightly blended on some spider webs with Moonlight ink and a stencil.

Little Agenda Spaceship with Vera

Hi, there friends! It's Vera here today and I'll be sharing a slim birthday card with you featuring Mama Elephant Little Agenda Spaceship stamp set and Slim Card Basics - Creative Cuts.


On white smooth paper, I stamped the images with Memento Black Ink, colored with Copic markers then cut it out with the coordinating die. Here, I used additional planet images from the Space Bears set. 


I die cut the frame from Slim Card Basics - Creative Cuts twice on blue cardstock, one for the background and the other one I die cut again with the clouds die. Then I ink blended with distress ink, splattered it with water and white paint.

I applied all images to the scene with foam tape to give some dimension to the card. The sentiment is from the same stamp set and heat embossed in white. 



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

Hugs,
Vera

Little Agenda Spaceship with Thi


Thi here and today I am sharing a card I made combining Little Agenda Spaceship and DE Night Sky Cover - Creative Cuts. These two new products pair so naturally together that I figured, "Why fight nature?"

To start my project, I took out some Distress Oxide in Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers and Faded Jeans and blended in that order. I just put down color in a triangular format onto Bristol smooth paper and as I move on to the next, I lightly blend them together. It will look like a hot mess, friends! Put some trust in the chaos and you will be rewarded!


With the Faded Jeans, I also lightly went over all of it from the outside in just so it muted down some of the brighter colors and make it look like a cohesive sky. If the blending isn't perfect, don't worry - keep going! Next, I took some water and sprayed it on my ink blended piece to remove some of the color. Then, I splatter white ink all over it to mimic stars. This is where the magic happens.


After this piece is completely dry - and I mean, completely dry - I die cut DE Night Sky Cover on top of it. This die cuts out little moons, stars and circles to add to that galaxy look. For a little sparkle, I backed this die with gold glitter paper and the results are amazing.


For my images, I colored Little Agenda Spaceship critters with Arteza markers and die cut them with their coordinating dies. With a background as intricate as this, we don't need to do much to the colored images. I just arranged them onto my card and popped them on with foam tape.


For the sentiment, since I used so much color, I decided to emboss in gold (to match the gold glitter paper) onto white card stock. I adhered this onto my card with foam tape as well and that's it! My card is finished.

I love these products and hope you will give a galaxy card a try in the future! Thank you for reading!

Hooray Wishes with Amy

Hello! Amy here with a fun Back to School Designer Series project featuring the adorable Hooray Wishes set.


To begin making the card, I Copic colored the stamped image from the Hooray Wishes stamp set and die-cut it with the coordinating Hooray Wishes CC.

The frame and the board were die-cut using the Letter Board CC. On the board, I heat embossed the sentiment from the School Rules stamp set.

To make the "Hooray" sentiment, I used the word die from the Letter Board CC.  I also made the shaped top folding card base by partially die-cutting white cardstock with the frame die from the Letter Board CC.

To assemble the card, I adhered the "Hooray" sentiment and foam mounted colored images to the board. Then, I foam mounted the board to the frame.  Lastly, I adhered the frame to the shaped card base.




That's it for today. I hope you enjoyed my project.
 Stay safe and be well.
