2021 Releases, alcohol ink, Cutting Dies w/ matching stamp, Dull Glossy Paper, Uncategorized

Good Day! I started working on this card a long time ago and it’s been sitting on my desk with parts and pieces being put on it and being taken away. I started to do a graduation card with the Celebrate and then I stuck it on this card and really liked it! I think it might be much cuter in real life than in pictures!

I did leave the inside of the card blank which is a a little rare for me. Watch for this Celebrate stamp to continue to show up on cards!

Aliens, Dull Glossy Paper, Valentine's Day

Good Morning. We have a few more Valentine cards we’ve been working on. We have been busy with orders so I haven’t taken the time to blog. Sometimes there is just too much to do!

Valentine Download

Download, Owls, Valentine's Day

Good Morning! We have been working on some cards kits or downloads as we call them. It is something that you purchase for a small fee and then download and print yourself. Usually we print on some type of white card stock. You can then color and cut out and make five cards adding additional paper and accessories.

As you can see, I kept the cards all very similar to make it quick and easy. That was the objective- to quickly make cards. It was so much fun! I had these five cards in within a short period of time. Super Fun! I hope you enjoy!

Camping, Dull Glossy Paper

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! It is not currently camping weather here in WI but we are looking forward to going this summer. Hopefully, we’ll have some good weather. The background on this card is actually a wood texture and came in a 12×12 packet. Can’t remember which though. Possibly bought it at Joann’s. The camper was colored with alcohol ink markers. White paper is dull gloss and link is here: https://shopec.com/shop/ols/products/dull-glossy-paper

January 28, 2022 – Owl Valentine

Dull Glossy Paper, Valentine's Day

Back with Valentine’s! On this card, the heart border on the left was created with A190 Tiny Heart stamp. The owl was colored with alcohol ink markers. Don’t look too close to the words! I was using dull gloss paper and my hands had some lotion so I smudged it a bit when I was glueing the pieces together. 🤦🏻‍♀️

Stamps: E256 KB’s Bookish Owl, C226 Hoo will be my Valentine?, C320 Handmade Card, A190 Tiny Heart

Copic Markers: E37 Sepia, E55 Light Camel, R32 Peach, E93 Tea Rose, Y17 Golden Yellow

Artist’s Loft Markers: E10 Mocha, B2 Ice Blue

The ribbon holes were created with EK Success Vertical Slot punch.

Have a great weekend!

Birthday, Dull Glossy Paper

A little break from valentines with yesterday’s sympathy and today’s birthday card. I love these skinny candles and love blending the alcohol ink markers. I had one little issue with the dark blue that it just wasn’t blending well. I tried putting it on first and then the lighter color and then tried reverse. Not sure why it dried so fast but oh well! That sometimes happens. Things don’t always go as planned. Still love how these look though!

Stamps: B302 Wish Big, EE53 Skinny Candles, C302 Blow Out the Candles

The candles come in a set of reverse images so when stamped together, there is more variation. There is also a cutting die for them if we needed one to pop up. Link is here > https://shopec.com/shop/ols/products/cdee53-skinny-candles-cutting-die-cd5-skn-cnd-ctt

Or

I haven’t decided which one to use yet but am leaning more towards G350.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Thursday!

January 25, 2022 – Another owl!

Dull Glossy Paper, Owls, Valentine's Day

Good morning, happy Tuesday and thank you for all the messages and well wishes!

We have another Valentine owl card because it is just so much fun to color. And the books can be colored to match whatever card stock paper is used. Anyone else really into Valentines this year? Mostly it passes without much notice but this year, all things pink and red!

Stamps: E256 KB’s Bookish Owl, C226 Hoo will be my Valentine?, C320 Handmade Card, A190 Tiny Heart

White paper is dull gloss – link here > https://shopec.com/shop/ols/products/dull-glossy-paper

This paper has a high risk of smudging! Use a waterproof ink pad and be sure if you touch the paper that your hands are clean and dry! I love the look of it but really need to be careful when handling because it does take a long time to dry. I’ll even leave my images to dry overnight before returning to color with the alcohol ink markers.
