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: 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!

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.

Video : Altenew Focus Post – Extra Special!

Today at the Altenew Blog I have a focus post featuring the new Extra Special stamp set. That means three different cards using this set as well as a video which you can find linked below.

For my first card I created a stamped background with the main flower image from the Extra Special stamp set and then for the sentiment I couldn’t help myself but I just had to get out the Bold Alphabet dies (sorry Wida) and I used one of the new cardstocks, this one is the Deep Iris and isn’t it pretty!

and did you see that I had the Ink Sprays out again….. I used Soft Lilac, Lavender Fields and Frayed Leaf to create my background.

For my second card I also used the Halftone Stencil and the Artist Markers to create a more classic ‘Mother’s Day’ design.

My final card (and video) was probably the easiest and funnest, I created a subtle background for the Thank You die which I made all shimmery….  but you can watch the whole process on video if you scroll just a little further on.
