Video : Cards 4 Men – Inktense Doggie Treat!

Hiya, today I have a fun card to share in my Cards 4 Men series.  I love the finished look of this card but I realized one thing today, I’m not real good at waiting for ink to dry….   I know, I know, take a breath and just wait!

You can see my video here or Watch it in HD at Youtube.

Video : Stamping a Sentiment Background with Altenew!

I have a quick and easy card to share at the Altenew Blog today.  I decided it would be fun to create my own sentiment background using almost a rainbow of colours, I thought this would make a fun kids or teen card.

You can see my video here or Watch it in HD at Youtube.

I stamped out the Congrats sentiments with the Altenew Crisp Dye Inks and then coloured some of the air benders using the Altenew Artist Markers.  I am loving the bright cheery feel!

Video: Gerda Steiner Go Wild Party Animals!

I had so much fun stacking the Gerda Steiner Designs Party Animals and the Go Wild stamp sets that I made two……  YES, the Go Wild set has been released and it’s uber cute!

The sentiment came from the Moody Unicorns stamp set.

My second card was pretty much the same layout but I changed it up by repeating the same animal for each tier instead.  I also thought it would be fun to ‘spatter’ the background and this time I used a sentiment from the sweet little Hedgehog with Sign mini stamp set.

Some Things Really Do Get Better with Age!

Lostinpaper - Penny Black - Fun Time Girls - Birthday Love (card) 1

I have a quick card to share today and I kept it clean & simple.  Although I did consider some design paper for the background, but everything I tried just didn’t do it for me, so she is boldly sitting on her own direct on the card front, love her style!

Things really do get better with age and somehow I think this Penny Black girl really knows how to party, wouldn’t you agree!

So…  In keeping with the party atmosphere I thought it would be fun to create a fun set of cards using some of the mini stamp sets from Altenew, and these Fair themed images seemed perfect!

I used the Splash of Color set to create a bright background for the Carousel and Ferris Wheel images.

The background here was ink blended through the Halftone Stencil and the sentiment was die cut with the Inline Alpha die set.
