{Technique Tuesday} See you later Alligator

Hello and welcome to Technique Tuesday's May release blog hop. The Design Team are featuring a variety of products that have been released this month. Head on over to the Technique Tuesday Blog to see the full collection and links to all the amazing products that are now available to purchase. 

You should have arrived here from Jung Ahang's blog.

My card today uses the new Animal house stamp set called Alligators and Crocodiles

To create this card I first masked of the outer edges of a 4.25 X 5.5 piece of card stock with some post it tape.  I created a little sand mound by just free hand cutting it out using some masking tape. I then stamped my images where I wanted them to be and masked them with some masks I cut out of post it notes. 

Next I ink blended the background with some Distress ink in tumbled glass and antique linen. Once that was done I removed the masks and coloured my images in using copic markers. I used dots of colour to create some texture. I wasn't happy with the inked background and decided to create some texture to the water and sand by colouring over the ink with copic markers in varying shades of blues and browns. 

Once everything was coloured in I removed the masking tape from the border. I trimmed the piece of card stock down to 4 X 5.25 and adhered it to my card base with some foam tape to add some dimension. 

Next up on the hop is Dana Kirby.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you found a little inspiration that will help you create some fun cards to share with Family and Friends. 😊

{Technique Tuesday} I'm Bananas about you


Today I'm sharing a card I made using the Monkey business stamp set from the Animal house collection. This was such a fun one to play with. Such cute little monkeys with a bunch of fun sentiments. 

For this card I wanted a leafy background. Ordinarily I like creating backgrounds with stamps. But for this one I had the green card stock that is cut out(? I'm not sure how to describe it) I've been hoarding this and some others for years and finally decided it was time to use it. 

So I trimmed a piece down  and glued it over a lighter green piece of card stock so it would pop. I used a stitched mat to die cut this piece down to a smaller size.  I stamped the monkey, the bananas and the sentiment onto some kraft card stock and coloured the images in with Prisma coloured pencils.  I adhered the kraft piece to the green background and then adhered the green piece onto an acetate card base. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today.

{Technique Tuesday} Celebrating Women and Moms.

Hello there.
I hope you are enjoying a relaxing Sunday wherever you are. Today at Technique Tuesday we are celebrating Women and Mothers. I am sharing a card I made that could be given to a special woman in your life for just about and occasion. 

This card featured the Beautiful Narcissus flower stamp set. I stamped the image onto some smooth white cardstock and then cut it out with the matching die. I then coloured it in with copic markers.  I watercoloured the background onto some watercolour paper. Next I cut a gold scalloped frame and cut the watercolour panel down to fit behind it. I adhered the flower onto the watercolour panel and popped it up onto an embossed card base with some foam tape. I heat embossed the sentiment onto a little die cut and adhered it onto the front.

Thanks for stopping by.
Enjoy the rest of your day :)

Robbies back!

Hello and welcome back. So my friend Robbie the racoon wanted to make another appearance today. 😜

Here he is getting up to mischief again. Seriously... I just love this little guy. He reminds me of my youngest son....always getting into some kind of trouble but then has that cute little "what?" look on his face.  πŸ˜‚

So, I got reallly into this card that I totally forgot to stop and take pics as I was going. πŸ™ˆSorry! Anyway... Luckily it is pretty straight forward so it's easy to just explain.
I started with a plain white 4.5X5.5 Panel of Neenah white card stock and I masked and stamped all my images onto the panel. Next I coloured all the images in with copic markers. (I'm not loving the way I coloured Robbie over there. I think I should have left his face a little lighter in spots so it stood out more. But hey! It is what it is!) When I was done colouring I masked off all the images and coloured the background with some distress ink blending. I used Pumice stone and Tumbled Glass. I added some water droplets and some foot prints. I stamped the sentiment directly onto the panel. I ran the panel through my die cutter with a stitched die to add a boarder. Ans finally I glued the panel onto a white card base.

And that was it. Easy peasy.
Thanks for coming by again. I hope you are having a great day wherever you are.

Robbie the raccoon

Hello again. 
Todays card is featuring Robbie the raccoon from Technique Tuesday

I love how cute this little guy is, poking his head out of the garbage can. I know that no-one likes raccoons going through their garbage in real life. But in the land of crafting it's all good. 😝

For this card I stamped the images with memento tuxedo black ink onto 100LB Neenah white card stock. I coloured them in with copic markers. Although I have matching dies I opted to fussy cut the images out since I did not any white borders. I inked up a 4.5 X 5.5 piece of white card stock using some distress inks in pumice stone and tumbled glass. I used some water to create the droplets and them used a stitched die to cut my panel where I adhered my images to. I stamped some of the little footprints and used a grey copic marker to add some shadows to ground my images. I stamped the sentiment and adhered the panel to a kraft coloured card base. 

That's it for today. I'll have more cards using this and other Technique Tuesday stamps to share in the coming days. So be sure to stop by and visit me again soon.
