{Technique Tuesday} Beautiful Butterflies

Hi there. 😁Today I have a butterfly card to share. I LOVE butterflies. I love how these look like they are flying off the card. To make this I used the Beautiful Butterflies Silhouette stamps and matching dies.  

I learned how to make this card a few years ago from THIS tutorial Amber from Damask Love did. I used this same technique to make this card. Once I partially die cut my butterfly I used the WOW! trio in Confetti to heat emboss the butterflies. Don't you just love these powders with the speckles of silver and white? πŸ’“Next I used a black pen to make the boarder. I heat embossed the sentiment onto the card with WOW! Platinum embossing powder. I added some raindrops in various sizes to the butterflies and card to finish it off.

I hope you enjoyed todays card.
Thanks for visiting.

{Technique Tuesday} Thank you Big time

Hello, Hello. I'm back today with jiggling hippo card. This cute hippo is from this months Animal house set. Helen and Harry the hippos. 

To make this card I first created the background with some blue distress ink and a cloud stencil. I die cut this piece with a wonky stitched die. Next I stamped the images onto white card stock and cut them out with the matching dies. After I coloured everything in I die cut some grass and assembled all the images where I wanted them to go. I attached the hippo with a mini wobbler and then glued everything together. I heat embossed the sentiment onto a black piece of cardstock with white embossing powder and attached it to the bottom. I attached this panel onto a card base that I embossed with a diagonal embossing plate.

Thanks for stopping by.

{Technique Tuesday} WOW! Embossing powder blog hop

Hello and welcome to day two of the Technique Tuesday and WOW Embossing Powder blog hop. You will LOVE the project ideas and inspiration you'll find along the hop. Plus no blog hop would be complete without PRIZES. And a SPECIAL OFFER too. I hope you "hop" right in and celebrate with us today!

Now let's get started.... shall we?

I LOVE heat embossing and I LOVE WOW! embossing powders.  I love how quickly and smoothly they melt. (Like Buttah! I tell ya! Like Buttah! 😝)
So when I was trying to come up with something to make for this hop I knew I wanted to use as much WOW! powder as possible! πŸ˜‚And I think I accomplished my mission.  At minimum this is a record for me in how many different colours of EP I've used on one card before. 

To make this card I started by stamping all the popsicle images onto a plain white card base with Versafine clear and Versamark black ink. I then heat embossed the images with clear powder. Next I used a WOW! embossing pen to colour in all the little sections and heat embossed each of them with a different colour powder. This took a bit of time but was quite satisfying. Once I was done "colouring" in all my popsicles with embossing powder I used a scalloped frame to die cut the panel out. When that was done I used my Versamark pad and inked up the entire panel so I could use the clear holographic glitter powder over the whole panel.  I mean, cummon..... That sparkle all over just kicks this up a whole lotta notches. Am I right?😍I mean this thing is soooo shiny it makes me happy just looking at it. 😁For the sentiment I die cut the label from black card stock. I also die cut the word "sweet" from the same black and I cut the word matt from white card stock. Once I glued the two pieces together I coved it with a layer of clear embossing powder just to add some shine and dimension. I used the bright white EP for the "You are" and then glued the word below that. All that was left was to assemble may card and call it DONE! 

Phew? I think it look me longer to explain how I made this card than it did to make it. (Just kidding!)
I hope you liked my card for today but before you move on...

{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} Monkey Business

{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. 
Tasha ☺

{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 :)
