Birthday card with MFT Picture Perfect Party Animals

Hello everyone, I'm here with the third card that I made with the Picture Perfect Party Animals stamp set by MFT. This time I would like to show the greedy lion.


In my earlier post, I've already explained how I made a card like this. So here I won't repeat myself. The only difference is that here I used Pine Needles Distress ink for colouring the background. The text is from another set, MFT Pawty Time by Stacey Yacula .



Three more cards to come :-)

Travel card with Idea-Ology elements

Hello everyone, it's 1 July so a new challenge begins on the Country View Challenges blog. The theme is Travel

For this challenge I made a card using almost only Idea-Ology elements.


Well, I had a polka dot panel in my stash. I wanted to use it for another project a long time ago but it ended up in the drawer. But now I took it out and I found perfect for my new travel project.

I selected all the Idea-Ology pieces that seemed good for the travel theme and I started to arrange them on my polka dot paper. In the end, I found this layout the best.



I inked the edges of the ephemera elements with brown Distress ink and I glued them in their place. The only exception was the young man. Then I spattered the surface with white paint covering the baggage with a piece of paper. 



The only Sizzix die that I used is the Bigz Baggage Claim by Tim Holtz.


So if you have a project with stars, please don't hesitate to join our June challenge where a randomly selected winner can have a £20 voucher in the Country View Craft Shop.

Birthday card with Picture Perfect Party Animals stamp set by MFT

Hello everyone, here is my second card that I made with the Perfect Picture Party Animals stamp set. For this card, I used exactly the same technique and design that I used for  my previous card, where you can also find the tutorial.


The only difference is the text, because here I used the Sassy Pants Birthday Greetings stamp set by MFT. And the I blended onto the background paper was Twisted Citron Distress ink.

Birthday card with parrots

Hello everyone, I'm here with a cheerful birthday card that I made with one of the stamps of MFT Birdie Brown Picture Perfect Party Animals set. Since I did a lot of colouring during the weekend more card will come here, to my blog.



Well, I coloured all the images with Copic Sketch markers and stamped with Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black ink.


I cut out little bit bigger squares than my coloured pictures. For this, I used one of the square die from MFT Square Stax Die-Namics set.

I stamped the Number Jumble background stamp on a white paper with Versamark embossing ink, then I heat embossed with Ranger Super Fine White embossing powder. In the end, I blended Prize Ribbon ink onto the whole surface.


I stamped the text with Tuxedo Black ink and you can find it in the same Birdie Brown stamp set.


I hope you like it! Thank you for stopping by!

Thank you card with Perspective butterfly by Tim Holtz

A few days ago one of my friends bought a bunch of thank you card from me. Here I would like to thank you again, my friend!

I heat embossed the background with Ranger Princess Gold embossing powder. Then I smeared the watercolour paper with diluted Antique Linen Distress ink.


I inked the edges with Ranger Brushed Corduroy Distress ink.

I stamped the butterfly onto a watercolour paper and heat embossed with the same gold embossing powder. I coloured the inner parts with Candied Apple using a re-inker and a brush. I fussy cut the image.


What I used:

Stampers Anonymous, Perspective (CMS213)

Gladys by Tim Holtz with moon and stars

Hello everyone, I'm here with my second project for our June challenge over at the Country View Challenges. The theme is Seeing Stars


And the main character of my card, the star is the wonderful Gladys herself :-) I wanted a simple, not too cluttered background to highlight Gladys.

For the background, I cut out a rectangle panel from 300 gsm watercolour paper and I sticked the moon mask to the paper. I started to blend Distress Oxide inks (Salvaged Patina, Prize Ribbon, Chipped Sapphire, Ground Espresso), then I finished with the original Distress inks (Chipped Sapphire, Black Soot, Ground Espresso).


I covered the ground part of my card and I spattered 
with gold acrylic paint the sky.


Next step was to make the moon. For this, I used the moon stencil and Distress Oxide inks (Antique Linen, Hickory Smoke).


I also added Resist Spray to the moon to make it a little shiny but I didn't spritz directly to the moon. First I put a little amount to a plastic sheet, then I dabbed the liquid with a sponge onto the surface.

I also spritzed with water the card but just slightly.


I coloured a piece of watercolour paper with the same gold paint I used for the spattering. When it was dry, I cut out the tiny stars. 

Gladys was painted with Distress paints, just like this card


What I used: 

Sizzix Thinlits die, Colorize Gladys (665851)

Sizzix Thinlits die, Witchcraft (662386)

Stampers Anonymous, Moon Mask (MSK01)

Ranger Distress ink pads (originals and Oxides)

Schmincke Bronze Acrylic Gold

Ranger Distress Resist spray

Ranger Distress Archival ink (Black Soot)

My Favorite Things, Friendship Rocks stamp set

Name-day card with stars

Hello everyone, it's the first of June so I'm here with the first inspirational project for our June challenge over at the Country View Challenges. The theme is: Seeing stars and the lovely Sue will be your host.

For this challenge, I created a card with stars to give to my daughter who celebrated her name-day on May 24. Her name is Eszter (Esther) and her name means star in Persian. 



First I cut out a rectangle panel from 300 gsm watercolour paper and created a background using the Wrinkle Free Technique. For this is put a few drops from Picked Raspberry, Saltwater Taffy and Spun Sugar onto a plastic sheet and spritzed with water.


When it was dry, I inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress ink. Then I spattered with gold acrylic paint.


I cut out stars from gold glitter paper using the Crescent Moon&Stars Bigz die and the Witchcraft Thinlits die set. For the  letters I used the Deco Bigz XL die. 


I inked the edges of the letters with Vintage Photo ink. I added a text from the Clippings Sticker Book to the bottom of the card.


What I used:

Sizzix Bigz die, Crescent Moon&Stars (658716)

Sizzix Bigz XL die, Deco Alphabet (661815)

Thank you card with red brushstroke flowers

So if you like the red then, it's your type of card. I added my flowers a really bold red colour to pop out from the background. 


For this card I got the background from one of my earlier projects, a tag. But there I didn't post any pictures about the creation and I didn't explain how I made it. 

So I took a 300 gsm paper and covered with an even layer of gesso.


When it was dry, I fixed the stencil on the paper with washi tape. 


With a piece of sponge, I dabbed the grey acrylic paint on the paper through the stencil. When it was dry, I spattered with white acrylic paint.


I inked the edges with Hickory Smoke Archival ink, then I placed and glued on a red panel.

For the flowers I used 300 gsm watercolour paper and blended Distress inks onto the surface. First Candied Apple, then Barn Door. The top layers were coloured with Abandoned Coral marker and with Rusty Hinge the middle part. All the edges of all pieces were inked with Gathered Twigs.


The leaves were coloured with Peeled Paint first, then with Rustic Wilderness.




Here I inked the edges with Gathered Twigs.



What I used:

Sizzix Thinlits die, Handwritten Celebrate (660215)

Sizzix Thinlits die, Brushstroke Flowers 2 (665210)

Stampers Anonymous, Shifter Stripes (THS108)

Ranger Distress inks, markers
