Midnight Moon Sky, Shaker Card ~ Clear Stamps

Hi Cheryl here on the blog today, playing around with the new release from FBstamps. Some super cute images in this release and you'll deff want to check them out!

Here's a shaker card I made using the new moon image.


I had wanted to try the night sky background for a long time now. Just never did it. Well, I did for this one, and I must say, it was fun and quite easy. Can't really go wrong. Next time I'll not be as afraid of adding black. This could have gone a bit darker. But I'm happy with my first attempt. 
I splattered white paint over all to create a starry sky.

I die cut the window opening and attached acetate on the back side and used foam tape to add the dimension needed. 

I chose a mixture of sequins and seed beads for the shaker bits and then attached the back panel on top. I stamped my sentiment and added a few sequins for some sparkle. 

Here's my shopping list.


Happy Crafting!

Let It Snow Shaker Card ~ Using Clear Stamps

        Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow - Cards


Bet that song is stuck in your head now... hehe!
Ilda here today, sharing a  fun winter card I made using one of Fleurette Bloom's latest Stamp Set Let It Snow.

For this first card, the stamping was super simple. I used VersaMark ink to randomly stamp the background of my shaker card and heat embossed it using some fine white embossing powder. Then used scribbled some Zig Clean Color inks on clear acetate and smooshed it on the the watercolor paper. Once it was all dry I created this beautiful shaker card with it!

More Gerbera Daisies! Using FBstamps Clear Stamps


Happy Thursday, Crafty Friends... It's fall and can you believe Thanksgiving is just in one week?!

Thanksgiving is the time of year to be thankful for all they have. For me, I am very thankful for family and friends! I appreciate each and everyone one of them. And though I try to show them I care everyday, sometimes life just get's in the way. I guess that's what I get for "adulting"... mommy & wifey duties, house chores, design team obligations... they all pile up! 

I'm making an active effort to let my loved ones know I appreciate & love them. 

Today is my first Guest DT post for FB stamps and I made this fall themed I love you card.

Supplies Used

Gerbera Daisy (FB Stamps)
Chipboard
Whimsy Embossing Folder (Lifestyle Crafts)
Mega Runner (Xyron)
VersaFine Onyx Black (Tsukineko/ Imagine Crafts)
Clean Color Real Brush Markers (Zig/ Kuretake)
Wink of Stella (Zig/ Kuretake)
Mixed Media Paper (Strathmore)
Whipped Spackle (Faber-Castell)
3D Dots (EK Success)
PITT Artist Pen XS (Faber-Castell)
Chalklets(EK Success)
White Gel Pen (Sakura)
Glitter Enamel Dots
Hemp Twine 
Button
Scissors


I started by stamping my images in black ink onto mixed media paper. then, I colored the flowers with my Zig Markers in Yellow, Mustard, Beige,Dark Oatmeal, &  Brown and went over the centers with a clear glitter pen. I also colored the leaves in Mild Green, Olive green, & Deep Green. 

I fussy cut the flowers all the images out but if you are not great at fussy cutting or just want to save time FB Stamps have the cut files for all their stamps and the coordinating digi dies are FREE!!

I stamped doubles of the bigger blooms and cut off the outer row of petals. then layered it onto the bigger bloom with foam dots.


I wanted my flowers to be an arrangement and not just floating on the card... so, I used Eileen Hull's Tea Cup Die for the cup and the tag. I cut them from Chipboard then adhered my patterned paper onto them with my Creative Station Lite.

I shaded the edges with  abit of chalk in colors that were at least 2 shades darker than the paper.

 The little "I love You" stamp comes included with the Gerbera Daisies set.

In the picture above it looked cute it felt it was missing something...


So, I added some texture to the background with a bit of modeling paste and a stencil.
And cut out a band for my teacup and embossed it and added enamel glitter dots.

I traced around the cup and tags with an extra fine black pen and then added highlights with a white gel pen. I also went over the embossed area with the same black pan as well. 

Then finally, I finished it off with a button topped multi-looped twine bow.

Here is a close up of all the dimension in this card...


I am enjoying this stamp set very much and I'm looking forward to making more with it!!

I hope you all enjoyed today's card!!

Until next time...

HAPPY CRAFTING!!

Another look at the new release ~ Clear Stamps

Ok....so, I think this is the cutest pumpkin ever!!! 
I decided to pull out some cute patterned papers I had for fall time and I stamped the pumpkin on one of the orange papers. Then I grabbed a few Copic markers and added some shading. I used white gel pen on the eyes and then a coating of Glossy Accents. 

I pulled out some circle dies and made a layering to use on the center of the card. I used some foam tape for added dimension. 

I also cut a little tag and stamped and white heat embossed the sentiment. I tied a bit of twine and glued it on the stem. The patterned paper for the background was also cut using a square die. It is cut to 4x4 and adhered to a 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 size card base.


I found some enamel dots in a real soft gray that looked good with the patterned paper, so I put one in each corner. I don't often make this size card and don't know why....cause I like it for something different and it will still go in a standard A2 envelope. 

Anyway, so there you have it. A super cute fall card that uses all patterned papers. Quick and easy yet super cute! 
Head on over and check out the new release! Some really fun stamp sets are available now. :)


Get your craft and have fun with some new products!

New Release Sneak Peaks ~ Clear Stamps

ARE YOU READY!!!!
Yay!!! The time for Sneak Peaks of the new release is here!!! Are you ready for some cute stamp sets by Fleurette Bloom, aka FBStamps?!?!?! 

I have a card to show you today using one of the new sets. Until Fleurette, I had no idea what a Sugar Skull was, lol! Just hadn't crossed my radar, lol. I do now, and soooo cute! Anyway, I used the Sugar Skulls Stamp Set for this card.


First thing I did was create a grid on my background using a T-square ruler and stamped the smaller Sugar Skull on a diagonal line to create a fun pattern. Then I grabbed some fun colors in my Distress Markers and watercolored in the skulls.

I cut a frame in black using a Pretty Pink Posh die and glued acetate to the back. I then used two layers of foam tape to have room for the sequins to shake. I chose sequin colors like the background and put them into the frame piece. Then I put the background piece on top. And shake, shake, shake! I love shakers!!!

 
I took the larger Sugar Skull and used black embossing powder. Then I chose just a few spots to add some pops of color....same as in the background. I used some Stickles to make the frames around the glasses nice and sparkly. 
Then I embossed the sentiment on a strip of black and cut using the same frame die so it would nestle right into the scallops. Nice and tidy! Lol. I added some foam dimensionals to the back of the Sugar Skull and adhered it right above the strip. Added a few more sequins and then put that piece onto the front of an A2 sized card. 
Keep watching! There will be new Sneak Peaks every day. Lots of cute new stamp sets and you won't wanna miss any of them. 
Here's where you can shop for all the new goodies.

Hope you have fun watching the new stuff being shown, and hope you find a bit of inspiration as well!

Happy Crafting!

Pretty in Pink - Motorcycle & Flower Clear Stamps

Hey y'all Laura here! Today I made this cute birthday card using a few different stamp sets. 


Supplies needed:
Black card stock for your card base (A2 size card base 4 1/4 * 5 1/2)
Dark Grey card stock 4 * 5 1/4
Hot Pink card stock 3 3/4 * 5 
Tim Holtz black disstess ink
Black Versafine ink
Grey Flannel Memento ink
Black Ribbon
#clearstamps #motorcycleclearstamps #motorcyclestamp #gerberadaisyclearstamps #fbstamps #cardmaking#stamping
This card is super easy to make! Start with stamping your motorcycle in black ink on your hot pink paper, then mask it off and stamp over it with the largest flower from the Gerbera Daisy set in Grey Flannel ink. While you have it covered with the masking go ahead and stamp the flowers in each corner. Take your masking off and stamp Happy Birthday Beautiful in black ink. Happy Birthday is from the Happy Days stamp set and Beautiful is from the Gerbera Daisy stamp set. Ink the edges of your pink and grey card stock with Tim Holtz black distress ink. Now glue your hot pink card stock to your grey card stock and tie the black ribbon around the bottom in a bow. Glue this to your black card base and glue a few pink sequins on for a little sparkle. 
For the inside of the card you'll need a hot pink piece of card stock 3 1/2 * 4 7/8 ink the edges with black distress ink and stamp I Love You in the bottom corner. I Love you is from the Gerbera Daisy stamp set.

Quick, Cute & Easy Puppy GiftTag ~ Using Clear Stamp...

Need a quick and easy gift tag?  I had a last minute party to go to for a kid, and did not have a card.  So I whipped up this cute little puppy gift tag, that I could clip right to the top of the gift bag!  Now I didn't need a bow as the tag gave it that super cut finishing touch :)

#clearstamps #stamping #papercrafting #gifttag #dog #puppy #fbstamps #zigcleancolorrealbrushmarkers
I created this Live on my Periscope channel.  So, you can watch & follow along to create your own. 
(Keep in mind it was done live, so you have to bare with me in the beginning, we had a little technical difficulty, but it all gets straightened out quickly and I get to the crafting fun)

Supplies: 
  •  Pawsatively Fabulous ~ 4x6 stamp set
  • Markers
  • Chalkboard tag
  • Clothespin
  • Hot glue and hot glue gun
  • Adhesive
  • Foam tape

Here is how I created this adorable tag:

  • I used a rectangle chalkboard tag.
  • Hot glued a clothespin to the top.
  • Colored this adorable puppy stamp with Zig Real Color Clean Brush markers, then cut it out along with the cute little doggy bowl, using the stamp set "Pawsatively Fabulous"
  • Then I used a white gel pen to write my message. (You could also use one of the sentiments from the stamp set instead. 
  • I popped up the finished puppy with some foam tape, glued on the bowl and had the most adorable decoration and tag for my gift! :)  
It was so easy, I made a second one for a little boys birthday!


Happy Crafting!
