My Favorite Things Forest Friends & Sweet Forest Friends Stamp Sets


You are Mermazing!

Written by Holly Endress. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hi everyone .. It’s Holly here today and I have a fun card for you using products from Neat & Tangled. This Mermazing set was a must have when I saw the release it was in. And the Making Waves Die set coordinated perfectly with it for a unique background.

mp6

I started by Die cutting the Making Waves die from some Watercolor Paper and a piece of White card stock. I added some Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Mermaid Lagoon Distress inks to the Watercolor portion to create the waves and the sky. Then I added some water drops and dabbed them off with a paper towel. After the pieces were dry I added them to the White stitched circle with some foam tape. Then I adhered the circle piece to the front of a top folding A2 size card base. I stamped the Mermaid image onto some Neenah Solar White card stock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and I colored it in with Copics. I used BG10, BG11, BG13 & BG18 for the tail. E50, E51, E21 & R20 for the Skin. V12, V15 & V17 for the top and Y13, Y15 & Y18 for the Hair.

mp7

I die cut the image using the coordinating dies and then I stamped the Sentiment banner onto some White card stock as well and used the die cut. I adhered both of them to the center image with some foam tape. Then I created a small banner and stamped “you are” and tucked it just behind the mermaid image.

I wanted a little touch of shimmer and sparkle to my card so I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the Mermaid tale and top. And then I added some of the Neat & Tangled Oceans Wave mixed Sequins.

Thanks for stopping by today… Have a great Weekend!

Dropping by..

Hi everyone it’s Holly here today and I have a fun card using the newest Friends for All Seasons:Fall Set from WPlus9.

mp9

I started out with a piece of  Watercolor Paper and I die cut the Tree Border Die from WPlus9 about 3/4 of the way down the panel. Then I used some Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Squeezed Lemonade to add color to the two pieces. I adhered the two pieces back together and adhered it to a Top Folding card base. Then I die cut a Frame from the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Frames from some Wood Grain paper. I adhered the Frame over the card front with some Liquid Glue.

Then I stamped the bear and Balloon images from the Friends for All Seasons: Fall set from WPlus9 onto some Watercolor paper and colored them in with Zig Clear Color Real Brush Markers. I used Beige & Blush for the Bear and Red for the Balloons. Once they were dry I die cut them with the coordinating dies. I stamped the sun image from the same set directly onto the card front with some VersaFine Black Onyx ink. I added some Yellow to the Sun with the Yellow Zig Pen. I like to add color to just the inside edges of my images with the Zig Markers and then using a slightly damp paintbrush I move the color around filling the image in. Once it’s dry I go back and add a little more color with the marker and just let it dry.

I die cut two clouds from the WPlus9 Happy Birds Die set using the same Watercolor paper and adhered them directly onto the panel. I stamped the sentiment from the WPlus9 Friends for All Seasons: Spring set in Black ink as well. I attached the Bear and Balloons with some Foam Tape and this completed my card. I really like how the Friends for All Seasons sets coordinate with each other. You can find all of these sets in the store.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Let’s Shell-ebrate!

Written by Holly Endress. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Happy Monday everyone.. I hope you all had a fun weekend. It’s Holly here today and I’ve got a card using “Trishell” from the Greeting Farm‘s new Mermaid line. I love this new line of stamps! There are 3 individual images and a mini set with lots of mermaids and undersea images.

mp2

I created the background first by adding some Mermaid Lagoon, Cracked Pistachio and Wilted Violet Distress Inks to a piece of Tim Holtz Watercolor card stock. Once I had the colors all blended how I wanted them I added some drops of Perfect Pearls Mist. This product is discontinued but you can achieve the same look but added some Perfect Pearls powder to a mini mister filled with water and then use the end of the sprayer to flick drops onto your background. I also added a few drops of water and dabbed them off with a paper towel. Then I die cut the panel using the Dainty Scallop Cover up from MFT. I held all the pieces in place with some Glad Press n Seal and added some foam tape to the back and adhered it to a top folding White card base.

mp1H

I stamped the image onto some Neenah Solar White card stock and colored it in with Copics. I used Colors similar to the background. I fussy cut the image out and added some Clear Wink of Stella to the tail and pearls in her hair. I die cut a Banner from some White card stock using the Avery Elle Pierced Banner Die set and stamped the sentiment from the “Trishell” set using some VersaFine Onyx ink.

mp3

I adhered the Mermaid and the banner to the front of the card with some Foam Tape and then I added some Mixed Sparkling Clear Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

I used the following Copics:

Tail~ BG11, BG13, BG15 & BV13 Hair~Y0000, Y00 & Y02 Skin~ E21, E51 & E50 Shell~E41, E42, E43 & E44 Top~BV00 & BV02 Cheeks~ R20 Pearls~ BV02 & C00
