Video: 3-D Critter Scene

Howdy all!  Happy Thursday!  It’s Allison Cope here today to share a very simple tutorial on how to make your little critters (or any other images) POP!

The key ingredient to this technique today is Olba glue. It’s a thick, clear glue with lots of body.  It allows you create a 3-D backer for your fussy cut images to pop up.

Today my card features the adorable “Monkey Hanging in There” and the “Bunny with Glasses” digital stamp sets.

So come and join me at my desk and we’ll go get creative with digital stamps and Copic Markers!

Here’s a look at our card once again…

And here is a close up of our bunny (photos don’t do this justice!)

And here is a closer look at the monkey as well…

Thanks for joining me today!  I hope you too get to try adding some more dimension to your card creations sometime soon.

Hoppiness!

Hi, crafty friends! Its Rebekah with you today!

I love creating a scene! Sometimes they can get quite complicated and then there are some which are super easy! I am going to share a simple scene card with you today using the stamp set Hoppiness Stamp Set from Gerda Steiner!


This scene came to gather so quickly! First, I stamped the little bunny and butterfly. I also made masks for them and placed the masks over the images.


I then stamped the fence. The fence stamp, itself will not go all the way along the card front. I stamped the fence in the middle of the card once and then, looking through the acrylic block which the stamp was on, I could see how to like up the next row of fencing! I continued this until it was across the card!


I used a cloud stencil to color a few puffy clouds with Distress inks and then took the masks off the bunny and butterfly.  I the clored in my images with Copic markers!


I drew in a few tufts of grass along the bottom.of the fence which added a little more color to the card and also disguised that face that I did not stamp perfectly straight!

Easy scene and so much fun!

Thanks for visiting the blog today! Be sure to share with us what you are working on this weekend!

Easter bunnies digital stamp bundle - Larissa


Hello, I am Larissa from Car-d-elicious and today I am posting a new project with a digital stamp from Gerda Steiner designs. My mother designed a box for chocolate easter eggs for me with the silhouette and I made a matching tag for it. On the tag I used a digital stamp from the Easter bunnies digital stamp bundle from Gerda Steiner designs.


Like I said the box is made with the silhouette from white cardstock and mica. To decorate the box I have die-cut a couple of grass borders from green dotted design paper that I bought from the Lidl a while ago. I used the Grassy fields die-namic from My favorite things to die-cut the borders. I have die-cut a couple of tiny flowers from yellow design paper and glued those on the grass edge.


I have made a tag for my box. On the tag I used an image from a bunny from the Easter bunnies digital stamp bundle from Gerda Steiner designs on the tag. I have coloured the bunny with my Polychromos pencils, the black glaze pen and the white gelpen. I have fussy cut the image. From white cardstock I have die-cut a tag with the Tag along die collection from Clearly besotted. I coloured the tag with Broken china Distress ink. I have die-cut a grass border from green dotted design paper from a paperpack that I bought once from the Lidl with the Grassy fields die-namic from My favorite things. I have die-cut a couple of tiny flowers from yellow design paper from the Classic gingham paper pad van Sunny studio with a Flower die from Action. I used yellow bakers twine to hang the tag onto the box.

Bunny Friends

Hi everyone! It’s Jeannie (InsideoutJeans) on the blog today with a card to share with you today using Bunny Friends. This is a 3x4 stamp set that is just incredibly adorable... you can use it for an Easter card, friendship, or a just because.

For today's card, I decided to make it a simple card. I masked off part of my card base and used distress inks to color up the top portion of the card. I used bright and cheerful colors so the bunnies would pop against them. Once I finish adding the ink, I used water to splatter everywhere and picked it up using a towel. I just love the effect of the distress inks for a background.


In this set, there are three sentiments that you can mix and match. I chose to use two of them "Thank You" and "for being in my life". I wanted to heat emboss them on black cardstock and to use the second sentiment as a place for the bunnies to sit. I staggered them slightly just so it looks like the perfect place for the bunnies.


I just adore this set and I hope you do too! Can't wait to use them again!




Thanks for stopping by. Come back again soon for some more inspiration and ideas!

I have die-cut a larger rectangle from black cardstock with the Crea-nest-lies XXL 24 from Crealies and glued the rectangle with the image on top of it. On a kraft cardI glued some yellow dotted design paper from the Designer mega sheets Dots - Bright colours from Card deco. I have glued the image with foamtape on the card.

It's Ashlee here today and I have a card to share with you using the funny set "Chicken scratch"
(co-ordinating dies also available)....

This set is full of super cute chickens and an adorable piggy along with some awesome sentiments that match the animals perfectly!!


I created a fun colourful background by using a range of Catherine pooler inks splattered with water for a splotchy effect. Then using white cardstock, I cut out the two co-ordinating layer dies quatrefoil 1 and 2 from Paper rose. 


The sentiments are heat embossed using WOW! opaque white embossing powder on black cardstock...

Of course to finish off the card a touch of clear sequins....

Hope you enjoy my post this week, happy crafting everyone.

Lots and Lots of Critters!

Howdy all!  I’m Allison Cope and I’m here today to share a video where I pile a whole lot of critters into one fun birthday card and color it up in front of your eyes!

For today’s card I’ll be using the following digital stamps; “Birthday Bear”, “Coffee Mouse” (our FREE digi right now!!), “Cat with Balloons”, the bunny holding the sign from the “Easter Bunnies Digital Stamp Bundle”, “Bunny with Carrot” and finally, “Penguin with Heart”! I know… that’s SEVEN digital stamps all on ONE card!

I decided NOT to speed up the coloring on this so you could hear all the details of my coloring process.  So grab a cup of your favorite drink and join me in my craftroom for a rather long video today.  Trust me… it’ll be worth it!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CdBAjNZqjOo&feature=youtu.be

Here’s one more look at the final card…

Once again, thanks for joining me today!  I hope you too get time to get crafty!  Have a great week!

Easter bunnies on a Memory dex card - Larissa


Hi everyone, I am Larissa from Car-d-elicious and today today I am posting a new creation on the blog from Gerda Steiner designs. This time I made a card for my Memory dex.


Today I used a freebie digital stamp. This is the Easter bunnies digital stamp from Gerda Steiner designs. I have coloured the image with my Polychromos pencils and the black glaze pen and then I have fussy cut the image. I love this advantage of digital stamps, you are able to print the image in the perfect size so it can even fit on a tiny Memory dex card. I only had to use a black fineliner to add some more grass border.
I have die-cut my Memory dex card with the Stencils SL120 from Studio light. I have die-cut the second layer from purple design paper from the Classic gingham paperpad from Sunny studio. I have die-cut the upper layer from white cardstock and then I have coloured it with Tumbled glass, Broken china en Faded jeans distress ink. I have die-cut a little sun and a couple of clouds from white cardstock with the Craftables CR1459 from Marianne design. I coloured the sun with Wild honey and Spiced marmelade distress ink and then I glued them all on the sky. I have glued the image with foamtape on the Memory dex card.
