Cheeky Lil Monkeys

Hello crafty friends!! Please join me for a new challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  This week the challenge is

Cute

We are showcasing Clearly Besotted Products this week.  If you have any of these products, we’d love to see them used, but it’s certainly not a requirement to join the challenge.

As always, the generous folks at Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store.  You can enter 5 times which means you can make 5 different projects following this week’s prompt and have 5 chances to win a shopping spree!! Sounds like a win/win to me!!

You will find a list of all the products that I used as well as my process video down below.

I think I’m in love with these little monkeys now. I used the Cheeky Monkey stamp set by Clearly Besotted and the matching die for the leaves. I decided to color my monkeys on Neenah Desert Storm 100 lb. card stock.

I did a whole lot of masking on this card (mostly unnecessary) but the end results are so worth it! Once I got the images stamped, I used my polychromos pencils to color these cuties.

I added some “jungle” foliage from the Critters of the Jungle stamp set by Lawn Fawn. Once I cut my card front using the Stitched Hillside Borders die from Lawn Fawn, I added some craft foam to it to give my card a little dimension. Then I added a strip of patterned paper to brighten it up a bit and add a little more yellow to my design.

I used a die from Paper Smooches called Foliage 1 to add a little more greenery around the edges. Then I finished it all off with some Dandelion Yellow Nuvo drops.

  So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!!

Critter Campout

Hello crafty friends!! Please join me for a new challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  This week the challenge is

Whatever The Weather

We are showcasing Sunny Studio Products this week.  If you have any of these products, we’d love to see them used, but it’s certainly not a requirement to join the challenge.

As always, the generous folks at Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store.  You can enter 5 times which means you can make 5 different projects following this week’s prompt and have 5 chances to win a shopping spree!! Sounds like a win/win to me!!

You will find a list of all the products that I used as well as my process video down below.

This card makes me want to go camping!! How cute are these little critters? I want to be sitting around their campfire.

The stamp set I used it called Critter Campout. I used the matching dies but later ended up trimming off the white border. Using the dies made this process much easier.

I started out by working on my background first. I cut a piece of Bristol Smooth card stock down to 4″x9″ and masked off the bottom 1.5″ with SSS masking paper. Using distress oxides inks, I created my night sky. I used Tumbled Glass, Blueprint Sketch, Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot.

Before moving on to the grassy area, I colored and cut out my images so that I would know exactly where to put the yellow glow from the fire. As always, I stamped my images out on X-Press It Blending card which is a copic friendly card stock.

Once I knew where I wanted my fire glow, I masked off the top of my card front with post it tape. I used distress inks for the grassy area. Starting Mustard Seed for the glow I then moved on to Forest Moss, Peeled Paint, Mowed Lawn and ending with a little Black Soot. To create my stars, I used Picket Fence Distress Paint and a toothbrush to flick paint on just the sky portion. To add a little more detail, I used a white gel pen and craft pick to add some shooting stars.

After cutting off the white border from all of my images, I took a Memento Tuxedo Black Dual Tip Marker and traced around each image. This is crucial to mask any imperfections in my fussy cutting.

I wanted some of my images to have dimension so I used large and small foam squares to pop up the deer, fire and hedgehog. Before gluing everything in place, I stamped my sentiment using SSS clear embossing ink and heat set it with super fine white embossing powder. Using my Misti, I stamped some trees with VersaFine Onxy Black ink.

I glued all my images in place and used a little clear Wink of Stella on the fire flames and then topped it off with Nuvo Crystal Glaze. I also added a little glaze to the light from the flashlight that Mr. Raccoon is holding. I thought my card was complete, but at the last minute I added a moon. I cut out a small circle using my SSS Nested Circle dies and watercolor card stock. I watercolored Squeezed Lemonade and Iced Spruce distress inks to add a little color to my moon. To finish off my card, I added my card front to a 4.25″ x 8.25″ black card base.

Below you will find a breakdown of all the copic markers I used to color my images. I’ve added this breakdown to Pinterest to make it easy to pin, in case anyone would like to use the same color combos. Just search Happy Ink Designs and then look for my Color Breakdown board.

Scroll down for a list of all the products I used to make this card.

  So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!!

Hello crafty friends!! Please join me for a new challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  This week the challenge is

Create A Scene

We are showcasing Honey Bee Stamps Products this week.  If you have any of these products, we’d love to see them used, but it’s certainly not a requirement to join the challenge.

As always, the generous folks at Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store.  You can enter 5 times which means you can make 5 different projects following this week’s prompt and have 5 chances to win a shopping spree!! Sounds like a win/win to me!!

You will find a list of all the products that I used down below.

How cute are these little bees? This is my swarming herd of busy little workers. I’m going to keep this post strictly visual by adding some pictures and the list of products that I used. Please bare with me this week and possibly next. You may or may not know that I’m in the process of making over my craft room and it’s taking quite a bit longer than I had expected. I have a couple pictures over on my Instagram if you’d like to take a look. But everything is just a little different at the moment. Just enough to make everything I do take at least twice as long. I have most of the things I want in my room put away, but my house is still full of stuff that I need to go through and store or get rid of or find a home for. I’m trying REALLY hard not to bring anything else in my room because I love the way it is right now. So my house is still completely destroyed but at least my craft room is almost done…!! As soon as I get some finishing touches done, I’ll be filming a craft room tour video that I’ll share soon. So no video this week either, which I’m really bummed about but soon!! Very soon!!

The way I photograph my cards has changed so unfortunately I didn’t get any good close ups, but hopefully by next week I’ll have all this worked out. Ok, here’s a couple more pictures of these adorable little worker bees.

  So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!!

Hello crafty friends!! Please join me for a new challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  This week the challenge is

No Stamps Allowed

We are showcasing Simon Says Stamp Exclusive Products this week.  If you have any of these products, we’d love to see them used, but it’s certainly not a requirement to join the challenge.

Ok, this is the closest I’ve gotten to making a sympathy card. How do you make a card that’s not too cheery, but not too dark? Do you add embellishments or keep it simple? Do you use bright colors or keep it muted? The thought of making a sympathy card is a struggle for me. I don’t handle death very well at all. I never know what to say to a person. So unfortunately, a lot of the time I just don’t say anything at all and I hate that about myself. Death has always made me really uncomfortable. I know some people that have just been overwhelmed with people stopping them in the grocery store or at the Post Office just to give them their condolences and then that person doesn’t even want to leave their house anymore! So I convince myself that it’s best to just not say anything at all. I know, I know. It’s a horrible way for me to think so I’m hoping to change that about myself. There you have it. I just shared one of my most unpleasant qualities with you.

Anyway, these cards are about as close as I’ve gotten so far. And I don’t think I would use them as a sympathy card anyway because they feel too cheery to me. So they’d be great for someone that is maybe sick or just dealing with a lot in their life.

I started this off on some Bristol Smooth cardstock and a stencil by Simon Says Stamp called Leafy Frame stencil. I ink blended Blueprint Sketch, Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide inks. I wasn’t happy with my first take so I made this background 2 more times. Once I realized they were all turning out the same, I had to change my vision of this card a little. But it left me with 2 additional backgrounds. I only had time to make two cards, but now I have a background ready to go. All I need to do is add a sentiment.

To help loosen my vision up a bit, I added some water droplets using a Distress Sprayer and that simple little step helped me realize that my background did not need to be perfect. In fact, I love it even more imperfect. Check out my video below if you want the full story.

I used Mint card stock by SSS for the background layer. For the second card I used Blue Violet. I popped both card fronts up on some craft foam using 1/4″ Scor Tape.

This Thinking of You die by SSS is the perfect size to fill a card front. It’s just big enough to be the focal point. I cut the Thinking of You sentiment out 3 times using Neenah Solar White 110 lb. card stock and used a spray adhesive to glue them all together. Then I cut one of my most used frame dies from SSS (from the Frames die set) 3 times as well but one of those layers I used Silver Glitter paper by SSS so my top layer would stand out a bit. Then I used a clear Wink of Stella pen and went over the entire sentiment. Once I glued the words in place, I added a couple Metallic Silver Jewels by Pretty Pink Posh to finish it off. For my second card I used Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops.

  So now it’s YOUR turn, Happy Crafting!!

Some Bunny Loves You

Hello crafty friends!! Please join me for a new challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  This week the challenge is

Black & White + One Other Color

We are showcasing Avery Elle Products this week.  If you have any of these products, we’d love to see them used, but it’s certainly not a requirement to join the challenge. 

As always, the generous folks at Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store.

This card came together seamlessly. It was one of those that just worked. I’m sure using minimal supplies had a little to do with that. I used my Mini Misti to stamp out my images on watercolor paper using Ranger Archival Jet Black ink. Then I colored my adorable little bunny from the Some Bunny stamp set by Avery Elle using the Gray Brown (094) Zig Clean Color Real Brush. I softened the color with a water brush. Then I added a touch of Blush (069) to the ears and cheeks.

Once I had my bunny colored, I moved on to the giant balloon. I colored this with Victorian Velvet Distress Oxide ink which is one of my favorite distress colors.

Using some Neenah Solar White 80 lb. card stock, I cut out this gorgeous background die by Altenew called Dotted Scales Debossing Cover Die.

Then I used the Victorian Velvet D.O. to add a little color behind where my balloon was going to go. I just wanted a very soft layer of color. I used a die called Postage Stamp die by Avery Elle for my frame and layered it up 3 layers. I colored my top layer with the Victorian Velvet D.O. ink.

I fussy cut my images out and popped my balloon up on some foam tape. To finish my project off, I added a couple Assorted Moonshine sequins by SSS and then added a touch of Nuvo Glitter Drops in Silver Moondust just to the center of the larger sequins. My final touch was to add some Wink of Stella to the bunnies ears and tail. I added my design to an A2 sized top folding card base using Neenah Solar White 110 lb. card stock. There’s a couple little stamps that are included in this set so I used a couple of them to stamp a little surprise on the inside of the card.

Prisma colored pencils used: Nectar, Peach and Pink Rose
