That Bites!!!

Hello CDD Friends, Waleska here with a very cool shaker card with a very cool guy... from the new and Amazing Jawsome stamp set! 
Did you enjoy this past release? We loved it, there are lots of very cute stamps for you to create and some amazing new dies check it out Here. (Just wait to see the September Release is going to be Spooktacular and as always Cute) ;)  




For my project today I created a shaker card, with a wave texture to the acetate for more interest to the card. First I run a piece of acetate in my big shot machine with a wave embossing folder to create the front part of the shaker. The texture looks awesome in real person, you can do this with any of your embossing folders to create texture to your shaker cards.


I created the background of my card with Oxide Inks in colors Broken China, Faded Jeans and Cracked Pistachio and added water splashes for an Ocean look.


I die cut two pieces of cardstock one for the up part of my card and one for the down part to be the sand, with the wave from the Outdoor Landscape Dies; I also stamp my sentiment at this point to the sand piece.  I die cut the biggest of the new Inside Scalloped Rectangle Dies and color it with Spiced Marmalade Oxide ink.  I glue the pieces to the Rectangle and also glue the wavy acetate to the frame to create the front part of the shaker.


I added foam tape around the rectangle to create the shaker and use the Fall Harvest Sequins for the inside part of the card to shake around the wavy water.



I glue the front part of the card to the water background I created, and glue the shark that I color with markers to the front of the card...  (He looks very concentrated on the water).  I love this sharks for masculine cards specially the little boys in our lives.

I hope you give the embossed acetate a try to give more texture to your cards and make looots of boy cards with the new Jawsome stamp set.

SEA you have a nice day

Make a Splash/ Transparent Ocean with Vellum

Hello Card Making Friends Waleska today with a full beach card with the cutest Summer Critters from Neat & Tangled I am really loving this set... Which one is your favorite Summer set so far?


CARD DETAILS:

I started with the background using Distress Inks in colors Squeezed Lemonade and Carved Pumpkin.
I cut the waves with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside border die in Vellum Paper and colored them with Distress Oxide ink in color Broken China. For the Sand I also used the same die in desert storm cardstock and give it a little color with Distress Ink Walnut Stain.


I stamped the cute Neat & Tangled Beach Day critters with Versafine Onyx Black ink and added Clear Embossing Powder. I color them with markers in the same color combo.


I put  Embossing Powder to one of the waves for a sparkling effect and adhere all the elements with Mono Multi Liquid Glue. I finally added the Postage Stamp Elle-ments to frame the cute scene. 


I wanted to create a water look to my card and vellum is great for that!!! I hope you like my project today and you are enjoying your summer time!


Sea you soon,

Waleska

Reverse Confetti Pattern Paper Card

Hello Friends!!! Waleska here with another card for the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog to share a very fun and graphic card with lots of pattern paper and paper piecing, inspired on the illustrator of this Reverse Confetti images Dawn Machell.



CARD DETAILS:

For this card my main inspiration was Dawn Machell illustrations, she uses lots of different patterns on her images, she combines bright colors and graphic patterns to create AWESOME illustrations.  I started by choosing the pattern paper I wanted to use, there are lots of  Pattern Papers for you to choose at the shop.  I find one that would look well combined together on my card.  I used the new Reverse Confetti Magical Day Stamp Set and the Unicorn Wishes Stamp Set.  I loove long cards, because they give me the chance to use more stamps and do bigger scene cards, this one measures 4.5 by 8 inches long.  I stamp the tree, unicorn and dragon on the pattern paper with Versafine Onyx Black Ink so the black outline of the images could be more black.


I combined different colors of the pattern paper for the images and hand cut some of the details so that all the images can be color balanced, like the hair, tail and unicorn horn from this cute unicorn.  I glue the details with Mono Multi Liquid Glue.  This little details make the images look different and so cool.  I die cut two hills with the lawn fawn simple stitched hillside border dies to create a magical forest.  To color the background I used Oxide Ink Fossilized Amber.


To finish it up I used some hearts to embellish the up part of my card and stamped the GREAT sentiment from the Unicorn Wishes Stamp Set.  I hope you like this card and give paper piecing a try!
Remember the good news!!! Butterfly Reflections Ink shop is now carrying Stamp Market Stamps and there is still time to shop some Hero Arts goodies with 25% off with the code HERO25 until Friday!! 

Have a Magical Day!

Reverse Confetti/ Party Animal

Hello Friends! I am here with this fun and funky card with Reverse Confetti stamps! Over my time as a cardmaker I have found many companies I love... the most recent one I love is Reverse Confetti... I just love their cute and abstract critters! they are so much fun to create with!


I created this card for their current sketch challenge at their blog! I have the most recent stamps and now I want them all! for this card I used Oxide Inks for the background with a mix of normal dye inks I first smooshed the dye ink color to my card base and after that I smooshed Peeled Paint oxide ink to create the (in my view) prehistoric background! I color the dino with markers and I just follow the sketch to create the rest of the elements!


What do you think cute enough....

Holy Guacamole New Mom/Krumspring Stamps

Hello Friends Waleska here with a set of very funny, encouraging and cute cards, because ALL moms need to feel loved sometimes. (ALWAYS).  I love to check out new stamp companies, I have some of my friends on the  Krumspring Stamps  design team and I have been wanting this set for so long they are awesome and unique.  The Butterfly Reflections ink shop is now carrying them so I was so happy to add this cute stamps to my stash!


CARD DETAILS: I started with the backgrounds, I made a heart shape mask with a Heart Die and Stick It Adhesive Sheets.  I used Lawn Fawn inks in colors Merman and Ballet Slippers for the inside part of the heart I blend the two colors with an Ink Blending Tool.


I arrange and stamped the Avocado Family to the front part of the cards because I wanted the little hands to be stamped in different layers.  I wanted to give this cards some texture and I used Embossing Folders to create that.


I stamped with Versafine Onyx Black Ink all the images and colored them with markers.


I hand cut all the cute avocados and place them on the card with Foam Mounting Tape, I color the outside of the card with the same green marker I used for the images.


I finally use Nuvo Drops Apple Green Bubblegum Blush and Caribean Ocean as embellishments. I added the sentiments with the Die-namics Stitched Sentiment Strips
I hope you have a wonderful day and can be inspired to make some Mom cards!

Party Hats!

Hello Friends! Today I am inspired by the Ellen Hutson Challenge at the ClassRoom blog to create a very festive card! I love to participate on challenges because the inspiration always gives me lots of ideas of what I want to create! 

The inspiration:


CARD DETAILS:

This is my second entry to this challenge, I made this card because I found this cute little colorful pom pom balls that remind me of the hats on the inspiration photo! I use them on the party hat stamp that comes in the Bear Ware by Julie stamp set... they look almost like the ones on the inspiration! I leave the card very simple because the pom poms already have lots of dimension, the hello gorgeous sentiment from the Hello Gorgeous by Julie goes perfect with my card.



I hope you have a great week and have fun creating!
