Some Bunny Loves You – Night Sky Using Distress Inks

Night Sky in Water Colors

Today’s card is featuring a technique that I saw in a few videos and images over the last couple of months, but I have never tried it before: Creating a night sky using Distress Inks. I started with die cutting a white piece of card stock and stamping the moon from the Altenew “To The Moon” set in the upper half using Lawn Fawn’s new butter ink. Now I stamped the moon again onto masking paper, cut out the mask and covered the moon on the card stock entirely. For the night sky I started with blending Blueprint Sketch all …


1st Try Molotow Masking Pen on Watercolor Paper

Scare Crow in Pumpkin Patch

Hello and welcome back. Today I have another review of a new product (at least for me). Soooo many people are talking about the Molotow masking pen and today I finally used it. I got it at Hobby Lobby with their 40% off coupon (still kind of pricey). I wanted to create a pumpkin patch. Even though Halloween already passed, we still have fall πŸ˜‰ I checked some “How-To’s” and started stamping the pumpkins on Ranger water color paper using Memento black dye-ink. I learned that I had to stamp the top images first, mask them and stamp the next …


Christmas Card with detailed Ornament

Christmas Card with Ornament

Today is the last day to participate at the Simon Wednesday Challenge ‘Wrap it up’ and I wanted to register this Christmas card before it is too late. That’s why I have a second article on my blog today. I recently purchased one of the new Mama Elephant Christmas sets, Twinkle Towns and had this design in my head as soon as I saw the release notes. First I stamped the ornament with the dreamy little village in the mountains. I colored everything with Copic markers (what a struggle…), cut it out, and added Wink of Stella to the snow …


Halloween Card with Mama Elephant Kittens

Halloween Card

Today I’d like to share a Halloween card with you that I made a few days ago. But I made it for a friend, so I had to wait till she received it πŸ™‚ This card is highlighting both Mama Elephant Meowlloween stamp sets (Meowlloween and Meowlloween Extras) and some pumpkins from the Moonlight set from Winnie & Walter. For the background I used distress inks and the starry background die from WPlus9. First I colored the background with the distress inks wilted violet, hickory smoke, and blueprint sketch. While that was drying, I cut some paper using Lawn Fawn’s …


Doggy Thank You Card With Abstract Background

Cute little Dog

A colleague from work brought me some champagne for my wedding anniversary a couple of days ago. Of course I had to make a Thank You card for her! I started with coloring the background. I used an MFT stencil to mask off the background and blended “Twisted Citron“, “Abandoned Coral“, and “Fossilized Amber” together. Than I run it through my die cut machine, using the largest of Lawn Fawn’s small stitched rectangle dies. Now I stamped the words “Thank you” from Studio Calico onto white card stock. After cutting it out, I colored over it with a copic marker …
