You Light My Fire...


Good day crafty friends, today I am sharing a little inspiration card. The weather has turned chilly up here in Minnesota so I thought the image in my card would be a good fit.
The images I used are as follows:Light My Fire and S'mores.



These sets are super cute and really let you create your own unique image. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have a crafty day!

Two Baby Cards and a Video!

Happy Monday friends! Karla here today with two baby cards and a video on my new YouTube Channel,to go along with them! I haven't had any baby cards to make for a long time, and I needed two recently. My hairdresser is having a baby boy, and my youngest sister is having a baby girl - yay!! Such exciting times, and I had some great ideas for combining digital and clear stamps to create these cute cards that I wanted to try out.

 I first used the Special Delivery sentiment from the Pen Pals stamp set inside word bubbles from the Let's Talk stamp set and stamped on watercolour paper. I used my Tim Holtz Distress Crayons to watercolour my bubbles by scribbling on my craft sheet and then using a paintbrush to dab on the colour mixed with a bit of water. For the boy card I used blue and green, and then for the girl card I used a red and pink crayon.

I coloured the adorable gator from the Birthday Gator digital stamp set with Prismacolour and Hobby Colour markers, both alcohol based and layered him over some of the awesome papers from the Shimelle StarShine Collection.

I found this sweet little soother button in my stash and added it to my tag along with some shiny metallic thread. A bit of Distress Ink around the edges adds some colour.

I used a Spellbinders die to cut the star shaped diecut background and added some pretty sequins.

For my second baby card I used the super sweet elephant from the Birthday Elephant digital stamp set and coloured her pink and then used some white gel pen to add some pretty details.

I used some more of those cute buttons and layered them on some twisted metallic thread in blue and red to match my card. I love the colours in this StarShine collection!

There are so many cards I could use this elephant on - and she'd look good in any colour!

Here's a look at all the awesome sets I've used:

Birthday Elephant

Birthday Gator 

Let's Talk

Pen Pals

Spooky Spinner Card

Hi, Henriette here today sharing Halloween spinner card.
For this card I used the "my boo" set.

 




To create the backside for this spinner I've flipped the ghost digital stamp in photoshop to make a mirrowed image. 
You can also do this in other programs like paint.
Then I added the face to the front part, printed both sides and glued them together with a string between.
If you've never made a spinner card before, there are many great tutorials on you tube on how to do that. It's pretty easy.

Have a crafty weekend!

Hugs, Henriette.
