Ink Road Stamps: Search Word Puzzle Card

Today's card is inspired by search word puzzles...I should use the term lightly as I've already highlighted (using Ink Road Stamps  - Alpha Block Party Outline) the words I want you to find...and...I haven't added any other words for you to actually search for. But this is one of those stamp sets you could well and truly create your own search word puzzle with - if you wanted to!  As you scroll down you'll notice I did create a few cards using the same stamping process.The grid was simply created in Microsoft Word and printed on white cardstock - then trimmed.I then started stamping the sentiment using both Ink Road Stamps - Block Party Alpha and Block Party Alpha Outline, alternating in ink colours (Altenew). I filled in the rest of the grid with random letters. The card front was then matted to a card base and embellished with sequins Hello Hey Cutie #YOLO Make A Wish Awesome So many options - and I do love the idea of taking it a step further and actually creating a search…

Elizabeth Craft Designs: Surprise! Happy Birthday Els Blog Hop!

Surprise! Happy Birthday Els Blog Hop
It's Els van de Burgt's birthday and what better way to celebrate then to celebrate with a surprise Birthday Blog Hop with the Elizabeth Crafts Design Team! Happy Birthday Els!
Here is my birthday card for you: This card was created using Elizabeth Craft Designs Floral Background stamp. I don't use my background stamps enough and I love when I get an opportunity to colour and use my copics. So for my card today I decided to create a spotlight card. Colouring in only a section of the card and leaving the rest as is - simply stamped in grey ink. 
After the card front was stamped I restamped the image using black ink on a copic friendly card that I had die-cut with Elizabeth Craft Designs - Stitched Fishtails. This section was coloured in. Before I assembled my card together I added twine to the top of my fish tail and elevated it using foam tape. I also die-cut my card front using Elizabeth Craft Designs - Dashing Rectangles die and adhered …

Craftie Cafe: Easter's on its Way!

Easter is on it’s way! After Christmas when Hot Cross Buns became available at the shops I was thrilled! I’m also a BIG chocolate eater – I love Easter and love getting a chance to challenge myself and create a few Easter themed cards with a few supplies I got from Craftie CafĂ©. I have in the past created my Easter cards based on religious themed stamps and dies, but as I’ve had kids (who are all now at the age where an Easter egg hunt is the best thing ever!) my cards now reflect this… so todays card (with video tutorial) is rather cute and was a lot of fun (messy too!) and all about the eggs…and bunnies!
Here is the card:

I used a combination of Lawn Fawn inks, my finger (wonderful stamping tool!) and Poppystamps die - bunny ears to create this grid layout Easter card. The sentiments are from Impression Obsession: Easter Basket - which is unfortunatlely now out of stock - but any Easter sentiment would work with this card.
I took the opportunity to create a few more cards using the dif…

Impression Obsession: Clean and Simple Challenge (Easter's on its Way!)

I had some time extra card making time this week and decided to use this cute little stamp set from Impression Obsession and play along with their current challenge - clean and simple.
Here is my card:

Supplies Used:Impression Obessesion: Easter Basket stamp set. Lawn Fawn Inks: Grape Soda/Minty Fresh/Ballet Slippers/Celery Stick/Butter Twine White Cardstock My Little Paper World Sequins MISTI Sewing Machine Paper Trimmer Tape Runner/Glue Dots
This set had so many stamping options that I couldn't stop at just one card. I created an addition three cards (not so clean - but definitely simple) that you can view below.

Stamping the bunnies above was fun but...not as much fun as stamping the eggs! See card below.
I love the option of an outline and a block stamp - so many options in terms of stamping, or even colouring. For this card I used the same ink colours to create rows of eggs, highlighting one egg in each row by using the block stamp as well as the outline. 

The card below is slightly diffe…

Ink Road Stamps: Making the most of your stamp collection!

I was bummed that I didn’t get a chance to use Ink Road Stamps – Fir Real set before Christmas. The tree stamps are gorgeous and you should all know by now how much I love stamping patterns. I also have a huge stash of Christmas, Valentines, Easter etc. stamps that just sit in their packaging to only get used once a year…so I was determined to figure out a way to use this set! After staring at it for a bit, I realised a simple masking technique would turn those trees into a triangular geometric shape that I could work into an awesome background…
Here are my cards:
