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!

Lostinpaper - Gerda Steiner - Party Animals (card video) 1

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!

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

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.

Have a great and crafty day!

Today it’s time for the Card Design Team to hop and we are so lucky to be joined by some incredibly talented papercrafters, you should have arrived here from Jennifer McGuires blog, and she never fails to inspire! (scroll down for the full hop list)

Here are some of my Altenew faves….

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!

Altenew - Carousel - Ferris Wheel - Celebrate - Lostinpaper (card) 1 copy

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.

I decided it would be fun to create a ‘faux embossed’ background using die cuts from the Inline Alpha Die set.  This little cutie is all dressed up for a party from Bunny Love and a glittery cupcake from Way Too Sweet.

Every time I looked at the Layered Cityscape Cover Dies I could only see a rainbow of buildings, so I just had to get that out of my system.

Altenew - Layered Cityscape Cover Die A & B - Faux Veneer - Lostinpaper (card) 1 copy

I did ‘stack’ a few of the die cuts on top of each other to add some dimension and the colouring was done with Tombows.

My final card uses the new Altenew New Day Card Kit and this is jam packed full of fun, I decided to create a video showing this kit and the process of making this card (as well as a quick peek at the kit).
