Craftin Desert Divas: Sneak Peek Release Week (Fall Fairies)

Image
Welcome! I'm loving Craftin Desert Divas August release! Here is a card I created - a little sneak peek at the Fall Fairies stamp set. I've created quite a few scene cards recently but this is one of my favourites this year. I don't often use stencils or distress inks (even though I have the whole set of ink colours!) but with the new Hill Scene 2 stencil I thought I'd challenge myself and try a simple ink blending of clouds in my background. Pumpkin Fairy Copic Markers: YR12/YR15/YR16/YR18 G02/G03/G05/G07 Skin: E000/E00/E01/E02   R20 Wings: R0000/R000/R00/R01
Mushroom Fairy Copic Markers:  Skin: E000/E00/E01/E02  R20 Wings: G0000/G000/G00 B01/B02/B04/B05 R20/R21/R22/R24/R27/R29 In the past I've tried ink blending clouds but never been happy with the results. I did a little testing and asked around for tips on how to improve my technique and I'm happy I challenged myself to try this again! For this card I ink blended on watercolour card stock and instead of a blending tool…

Ink Road Stamps: Emoji Fun

Image
Hello! Let me first start off by saying I LOVE this card! I didn't really think it would turn out exactly how I had thought it in my head - but it did! Which is why I needed to start off by saying - this card is AWESOME!
I had been looking at Ink Road Stamp: Iconic for ages (there is a few Ink Road Stamps I haven't used yet!) figuring out which faces I want to use on what images...but while looking at the set I wished that it included a circle because how cool would an Emoji card be?! - Silly me! Ink Road stamp has a circle stamp (Full Circle stamp set)! So to make this card I used both set and included a few extra stamps from The One With All The Stamps and Call Me Maybe.
I love how it turned out! For more details on how I put this card together check out my original post on Ink Road Stamp blog - here. I took a few extra photos - even though this card is basically all yellow. There are a few details such as the stitching, sentiments, googly eyes and embellishments that pop off th…

Craftin Desert Divas: Sneak Peek Critter Punnies (August Release Week)

Image
Hello! It's August already!!! Which means it's release week over at Craftin Desert Divas. Here is my first sneak peak preview using Critter Punnies.
Isn't this critter cute? I coloured him in with my Copic Markers (listed below) and simply adhered him above a mountain of stamped nuts which were individually stamped using a masking technique. I partnered the stamp set with Craftin Desert Divas Stitched Alphabet Dies. This allowed me to create my own personalised sentiment - a must have item in your craft stash! I used a wood effect cardstock to die cut the letters (I've had this in my stash for years and finally found the right card to use it with!). These were adhered with foam tape and I finished the card off with some punched out hearts, twine and enamel dots. 
If you noticed I exchanged the 'O' in You with a nut - this is part of the new release die for August and I can't wait to show you more using this die!  Copic Markers Basket: YR04/YR07/YR09 Squirrel: E2…

Elizabeth Craft Designs: Joset Designs Focus Day

Image
Hello Welcome! Today I am showcasing one of Elizabeth Craft Designs dies from their most recent release! I love Christmas cards - I often leave making them till the last minute (then panic at the amount of Christmas cards I need to make!) So ... creating with Joset's designs was a welcomed change! 
Here is my card using the Elegant Christmas Tree die:


When it comes to my Christmas cards I love traditional colours. So for theses cards I stuck with reds, greens and silver to contrast my white tree and background. I used Elizabeth Craft Designs silk microfine glitters and added machine stitched detail to the tree, along with some sequins. The sentiment if from Elizabeth Craft Designs: Classic Christmas Sentiments.
This is the perfect design to make a whole bunch of bulk Christmas cards with. You don't need to even stick to the traditional colour scheme I've chosen. Teals and Pinks are also fantastic alternative colours - which I may still consider as I continue creating a few mo…

Jillibean Soup: Guest Designer - Oceans of Joy

Image
Hello! Welcome! Last month I guest designed for Jillibean Soup - you can view all the cards I created on their original post here on their blog. Over the next few days I will share what I've created on my blog and on Instagram: My Little Paper World
Here is my first card using Jillibean Soup - Octopus stamp and die set. I used crepe paper to create my background along with the background wave stamp in this set. I also added machine stitched details and embellished the card with Jillibean Soup sequins. This card came together quite quickly because I used coloured card stock to die cut the stamped images.  I finished the card by adding a twine bow and applying glossy accents to the stamped out bubbles. This stamp set is small but it has some great sentiments to go along with these cute images. I stamped 'Wishing You Oceans of Joy' to the bottom right of my card in black ink. The die-cut images are adhered to my card front with foam tape. I love how the crepe paper, stitching a…

Elizabeth Craft Designs: April Showers

Image
Hello - Today I am sharing two cards I created using Elizabeth Craft Designs: April Showers stamp and co-ordinating die. This was such a fun stamp set to colour that I decided to make a quick video tutorial which you can view below.
Here is the first card:  Sentiment: A little rain makes the sunshine even brighter. I also used Elizabeth Craft Designs: Garden Notes Frame It/Stitched Rectangles die as well as the grass die that is in the Elizabeth Craft Designs: Adventure Edges die set ( I love this die - an essential for creating beautiful scenes). VIDEO

I really love the ducks in this stamp set - as I was making these cards all I could think of was the nursery rhyme Five Little Ducks. For my second card I decided to focus on the Mummy duck and her five little ducklings...
