Happy Mother's day!

April 20, 2016

Hi there!!

It's Yolanda here, from Scraping Time!! I am sure that you really enjoyed our Blog Hop since the new stamps sets are just out of this world!!

I know I will use them a lot since I can't stop thinking about different scenes to create, but today, I want to finish the game I started fifteen days ago with my crafty friends on Facebook. 
You can read my last post here, where I told you about it but mainly, I proposed them to choose one of five Gerda Steiner Designs stamps sets and the one who got more likes was this:


Then they proposed me three topics to work with it: you had a bad day, book day and the last one: Mother Day. Here in Spain we celebrate it on the first Sunday of May so it is going to be very soon.

I thought about it and I decided to use two siblings for my scene! They were going to say something nice to their mom!

And this is the card I created:


First of all, I die cut a false stitched rectangle on a white cardstock and I inked some clouds with Memento Blue Sky Ink. Then, I die cut my pink grass in two different decorated papers from Lawn Fawn. After that, I set my dogs with foam squares on the grass. I added some Wink of Stella Clear and Glossy accents on the noses and the dog collar. And it was time to stamp the sentiment.


I die cut a cloud and a balloon bubble and I stamped both sentiments. The first one is from the Happy Hoppy  4x6 Bunny Stamp Set  (You are simply the best) and the second one is a mixture of a couple of sets. Firstly, I stamped the "love you" stamp from the "Brush bunny" stamp set and I added a couple of "u" since I really love the idea of the original set where the dog is singing Happy Birthday to youuuuuuuuuuu!!! And I thought it could be cute to copy it! 
But... I haven't got any alphabet or sentiment with the same font that the ones I had used so I look at the set carefully and I realised I could make it! 
Then I stamped the two first letters from Wonderful (WO) upside down and I stamped again the W to read MOM.



I do this a lot with the stamps and dies. I love giving them a second life!! ;)


I hope you enjoyed with this card and see you soooooooooooooon!!!

First Christmas....!!

December 17, 2018

Hi everyone...

It's Ashlee here with you today and I have a card to share with you that I made using the super sweet stamp "Baby boy christmas"....

It's a fairly simple card really but I think it makes the image the absolute focal point of the card. 


First I coloured the background with some distress ink "Festive berries" and added some "Black soot" around the edges. I spritzed it with water for a...
