Ink Road Stamps: Full Circle Recap 2018

Image
Hello!

The lovely Lara from Ink Road Stamps gave us (design team) a break for December. So if you're hanging out for some Ink Road inspiration I will be back in full swing come January 2019! In the mean time however, going through my photos (a little computer "spring" cleaning) I realised that one of my favourite Ink Road Stamps for 2018 was Full Circle. I've made quite a few cards with it and I wanted to share all the different ways this one stamp set could be used...


Check it out! All different - some of the cards I used the stamp set as a background, while others I used it to compliment other stamp sets. I'm looking forward to using this stamp set more in 2019, not to mention the new stamp sets coming soon to Ink Road Stamps.

If you are not already an Instagram follower - I would love love love to see you follow and like this post on my Instagram: My Little Paper World.

Happy Crafting!

Elizabeth Craft Designs: Winter Animals

Hello! I feel I haven't posted on my blog for awhile in the lead up to Christmas! Not that I haven't been creating cards - I actually feel I've made too many cards (for Christmas) and my blog has just not been kept updated. However, I do hope you'll follow me on Instagram - My Little Paper World, I post all my cards here and it's a great way to follow my creative journey for the new year!
Today I'm sharing a set of cards I created using Elizabeth Craft Designs: Winter Animals stamp set. I really wanted to create a repetitive background using the small pattern stamp and I thought that sticking to a monochrome colour scheme would make it easier. What are your thoughts on a blue owl? Purple Bear? Pink Squirrel? or Orange Fox?  I used my Copic Markers to colour each animal in - again because I went with monochrome colours the colouring was very simple. I picked three to four shades of blue and individually coloured each section of the owl.

Craftin Desert Divas: A Christmoose Card

Hello! Welcome!
Today I wanted to share a simple background technique that works really well with snowflakes and winter themed stamps. I'm using Craftin Desert Divas lastest release stamp set: Christmoose and the Snowflake Border die. 

Card Instructions: Step 1: Create your background by drawing squiggly lines using Copic markers B00 through to B02 on Copic friendly cardstock. Corner punch the top right corner. Card front measurements: 10cm x 14.5cm Step 2: Die-cut three rows of snowflakes using the Snowflake Border die.
Step 3: Adhere silver glitter cardstock behind your card front. Using black ink stamp the sentiment. Step 4: (Optional) Add machine stitched details. Step 5: Using foam tape adhere the Copic coloured in moose and snowflakes.


Step 7: Embellish with sequins and twine. Adhere card front to an A6 card base.
Here are two more card examples using the same technique – it’s a very quick technique perfect for replicating Christmas cards to add to your stash. You could p…
