Special Delivery Throwback Stamp Set

Hello CDD Fans, it´s Waleska with a fun card using a throwback stamp set, this card was one of the first card designs I did for CDD, but back then I didn't share how I created the mailing background so I thought I would share with you how I did it... This set is one of my favorites from older releases because... Hey who doesn't love happy mail?  This stamp set is called "Special Delivery" this set is full of cute mailing critters and great sentiments to make someone smile...



CARD DETAILS:

I started cutting 1/2 inch red and blue strips of cardstock, I glue the strips to my card base starting in the center and from that you can glue up or down the following strips alternating the two colors.
At the end you will end with a very colorful background, you can change the colors or even make a rainbow design with this background.  I die cut the biggest rectangle from the Fancy Frame Dies with white cardstock, I made masks of the bunch of letters from the set, and started building the pile of letters.  I first stamp three together, then two and finally one where the cute critter would be sitting.
I colored the letters with the same colors from the background and also the critter with markers.


I adhere the adorable critter sitting on the big pile of letters holding a special letter for someone special and stamped the sentiment with black ink.


This card is super fun and amazing looking, it is very dear to me, because as I mention before it was one of the first card designs I did for CDD, I hope you like it and give this idea a try...

Have a wonderful day!

Oxide Inks Northern Lights

Hello Friends Waleska here, today I wanted to share a scene card I created specially for one of the seals on the Reverse Confetti Sealiously set, my idea was to create a northern lights night sky for a "Missing You" card for someone special.... let me share with how I got the look.



CARD DETAILS:

I started with a white card base, and googled some northern lights inspiration to know what colors I wanted to use.   I decided to use Oxide Inks in colors:  Cracked Pistachio, Wilted VioletSeedless Preserves,Worn Lipstick and Black Soot.   I started this background by applying the Oxide Ink colors randomly on the front panel, trying to blend some of them with the Ink Blending tool,  then I apply the Black Soot on the corners towards the center of the area I wanted my sky to be.  I also create some little water splashes for a dynamic look.


I set aside the sky and started working on the Icebergs, I  die cut five of the My Favorite things Icebergs Die-namics  and I apply Mermaid Lagoon Oxide ink to the bottom of each Iceberg to unify them with the iced water the cute seal will be on.



I cut a panel for the iced water and colored it with Mermaid Lagoon Oxide ink, and again splash some water on it.  I adhere the icebergs and water to the sky front panel, and glue the adorable seal I colored with copic markers.  I used one of the sentiments on the set and finally put some white dots to the sky as stars.


I hope you like my card today, and can give this Northern Lights sky idea a try....

CARD DETAILS:

I started with an A2 card base from Sea Brutus Monroe cardstock, for the front panel I used one of the palm trees on the Karen Burniston Palm Tree Pop Up die set.  To create the sand I used Brutus Monroe Suede Surface Spray, for the ocean I used Oz Surface Spray.  The Brutus Monroe stamp set I used is called Road Trip.  The front panel looks very normal, but the surprise comes when you open the card.... it is so awesome!!!


I promise this dies are so easy to ensemble I am sharing here some photos of how easy it is to create this pop up cards, for a detailed explanation you can find a Karen Burniston Video HERE.  For the inside card I used Suede Surface Ink to create the sand look and for the Ocean I used Oz surface spray... Surface sprays look beautiful in person and give your projects a very unique look.


I adhere one of the campers to the pop up palm tree to have it, also pop up when the card is open.  The sentiment "TRAVEL MORE WORRY LESS" was perfect for this card!!!

Slider Cloud and Rainy Day/Oxide Inks

Hello Friends, Waleska here... I hope your week is awesome so far... My card  today is super cute and rainy, I am a big fan of all the Birdie Brown My Favorite Things Collection, I think this one is one of my top five favorites from all time! Don´t you agree? he is the cutest....



CARD DETAILS:

I started by creating the front panel of my card, using Salty Ocean Oxide ink, I blend the top and bottom of the card leaving the center of the card white.


To give the rainy look to the card I splash lots of water to the ink blended parts, and I also smushed some oxide ink into my craft mat and mix it with a little water and flick that mix to the entire card focusing on the center.  I die cut the slide channel to the front panel and I almost forgot (but thankfully remembered) to stamp the sentiment to the bottom of the panel.  I put lots of double sided foam to the back of this piece to create the slide mechanism I use a coin that I adhere to the puffy cloud. 


I finally colored the cute boy in some primary colors and adhere him to the card.  I glue the this piece to an A2 card base, and to make all the colors match I colored around the card base with the same yellow marker I used to color the boy.

This card is perfect for that little boy in your life, the one that loves to play on the rain and makes you happy everyday! I got mine, the one that made me a mom almost nine years ago, this mother's day I celebrate because I am his mom, because some days is exhausting but is ALWAYS FUN... ALWAYS FUN!!!

dragons

Hello Friends, thank you for stopping by my blog for another Wednesday Quick Tip using Brutus Monroe stamps and products, every Wednesday you can find a blog hop at the Brutus Monroe blog featuring the product of the week!!! You can find the hop HERE.   This week we are featuring the new adorable dragons stamp set.


QUICK TIP:

Today's quick tip, is about creating quick and easy backgrounds with Surface Inks, this card was very easy to create... I would say that what took me more time was to color the cute dragon, because the background is only a quick mist of the Oz Surface Ink.  I looks beautiful in my opinion, and again it took me literally seconds.  After the mist I stamped the sentiment in the up part of my front panel and adhere the dragon with 3D foam and to give a sweeter look I added some hearts to embellish the card.


Isn't he so cute and adorable?, On this set you will find lots of dragons you can use for many occasions...



Now is your turn, make some easy backgrounds with your Surface Sprays and make some quick cards to have in your stash

Toadally Awesome Nuvo Shimmer Powders

Hello Friends, I hope you had a great week!!! I am super excited to share with you this card today and also some backgrounds I created with the beautiful Nuvo Shimmer Powders... All you have to do with this powders is add water and let the magic happens. The colors are amazing and you can create beautiful shiny projects with them. Let me share with you how to use them it is super fun!


CARD DETAILS:

To create this card I started with the background first, I spread some of the Atlantis Burst powder on the front of my card base and add water... I let the colors move a little and then I use a heat tool to dry it. After that first panel I did two more panels in the same way one more with the Atlantis Burst and the other one with my favorite powder color Violet Brocade.

I die cut a frame for the front of my card and stamp some of the froggies from the Toadally Awesome Lawn Fawn to the other panel and hand cut all the pieces. I used 3D foam to give dimension to the froggies and finally I added the sentiment. I don't actually own all of the colors of the Nuvo Shimmer Powders but I created some examples for you to take a look of the ones I have. (by the way I need them all)....

Atlantis Burst /Solar Flare

Storm Cloud /Violet Brocade


Mixing Powders

This color powders are vibrant and shiny I love all you can do with them! The most easy thing to do with them are amazing looking backgrounds in seconds!
