Lawn Fawn - Happiness In Little Things

Hello everyone! Today, I have a clean and simple card for you using some of the new Lawn Fawn products. I love love the new products and if you are in Switzerland you can find them at the SCRAPHOUSE shop.
 I used Lawn Fawn Dandy Day stamp, Cloudy Stencil and Grassy Stencil. 

Here is the full card

I started by using the negative part of the circle stencil by Heffy Doodle on my white layer. Now I used the grass and cloud stencil and sponged inks through it to create a one layer masked circle effect. I used Salty Ocean and peeled paint distress inks.
Now I stamped the cute mouse and colored it using copic markers. I then stamped the dandelion and added a touch of yellow to it.

To finish, I added a tiny red heart and stamped the sentiment.
I adhered this panel to a light blue cardbase.

FUN!!!! right?  I really am enjoying these adorable critter images. I love creating CAS cards and they are so easy to mail too.
 Have a nice day!

WOW! Embossing Powder - Embossing using Stencil Technique

Hello Everyone! I am on the WOW! Embossing Powder blog today. I hope you are enjoying the April challenge over on our facebook page. The theme is RAINBOWS and I am here with another inspirational card for you. I embossed through the stencil for this card to create the rainbow stars :)
The colours I used are: Primary Parma Violet, Bluetiful, Sunflower, Chartreuse, Metalline Red and Aztec Glintz

I started by creating a black cardbase. I then took a white mat layer and placed Altenew Milky Way stencil onto it. Now press the WOW! Slow drying ink onto it. Remove the stencil and sprinkle the embossing powders one by one to create this pretty rainbow of colours. Emboss using the Dual Heat Tool.

Sponge tumbled glass distress ink on the top and bottom edges. Now, die-cut two clouds using Heffy Doodle Silver Linings Cloud border dies. Adhere the top cloud using 3D foam.
Stamp the planet using grey ink onto the lower cloud and adhere t to the bottom. Stamp the cute alien image using Heffy Doodle You're Weired stamp set using alcohol friendly cardstock. Colour and die-cut using the coordinating dies. Adhere to the layer.

Studio Katia - Happy Birthday Card

Hello everyone!  
I am on  Studio Katia  blog with a floral birthday card. Hope you all are staying safe. I love stencils and vellum so I decided to combine them both here :) 
To start, I sponged distress ink worn lipstick to the cardbase using the blender brush. Now lay the Confetti Stencil on the cardbase and apply some more worn lipstick and picked raspberry inks through the stencil towards the edges. Flick a bit of silver paint. Stamp the Lovely Blooms image onto vellum using versamark ink. Emboss using WOW! Silver embossing powder. Color the image using copic markers from the back side of the vellum and fussy cut the image. Stamp the sentiment from the Cactus Hugs stamp set. 
Adhere this to the vellum floral cluster using 3d foam tape. Adhere the floral cluster to the cardbase. To finish, I adhered some of the Crystal Clear Confetti. Thank you for dropping by! Have a nice crafty day!

WOW! Embossing Powder - Rainbow Thanks Card

Hello Everyone! Today, I have a rainbow thanks card on WOW! Embossing powder blog. Hope you all are staying safe. The April challenge is here on our facebook group and the theme is "Rainbow Colors". I love rainbows as they are cheerful, hope, happiness to me and that's what we definitely need right now. We would love to see your happy creations.

I started by creating a 5 by 5 inch square card. I then cut a mat layer, slightly smaller than the card front and sponged distress inks in tumbled glass and salty ocean. I then stamped the images from Heffy Doodle You're Weired, Spaced Out stamp set using versafine onyx black ink. Let this panel dry.
I die-cut the letters for "THANKS" using Heffy Doodle stitched Alphabetters Dies. I then applied WOW! Embossing powder slow drying ink to the letters and embossed each letter in a rainbow order. For this I used WOW! Embossing Glitter Sugared Almond, Tangerine Dream, Red Glitz Something Borrowed, Sorbet and Lime Rickey inspired by Catherine Pooler.

To get the colors a bit intense and some dimension, I embossed each letter 2 more times. This gives a beautiful chipboard kind of effect.
Stamp the sentiment and adhere the letters.

Hope you enjoyed this splash of color today. Stay safe and have a nice crafty day :)

Blog Post Title: Altenew 6th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 2 + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends!
Today, I am delighted and honored to help Altenew celebrate their 6th Anniversary! In light of current events, Altenew considered cancelling their celebrations. However, they want to use this blog hop to spread joy and encourage others to give back/ be there for one another during these challenging times. Subsequently, Altenew has donated 6K to relief organizations that are working to help vulnerable populations. Watch this short video to learn more
You should've come here from Agnieszka Malyszek blog, if not start at the
Altenew Blog.

I have TWO cards for this hop. 
For my first card, I used the Simple Beauty stamp and dies, Pen Sketch Mandala stamp, Altenew Crisp dye inks in Pink Diamond, Pinkalicious, Rubellite (Cherry Blossom set), Parrot, Olive and Warm sunshine. I also used patterned paper from Verdant Walk paper pack and Antique Gold embossing powder.

I started by cutting a white mat layer and sponged the warm sunshine ink to it. I then cut the stripe pattern paper and adhered  it to the panel diagonally. Now I embossed the image and stamped the layers using various inks. Die-cut the images and adhere to the layer. Adhere this layer to the cardbase.

 To finish, I used some crystals.

For the SECOND card, I used one of my favourite Watercolor Halftone stamp and dies. I used inks in Bamboo, Just Green, Fresh Lemon, Autumn Blaze, Puffy Heart, Rubellite, Heart Beat.  I also used patterned paper from Verdant Walk paper pack and the
Artists Watercolor 24 pan set to create the background wash.

I started by taking a watercolor CS layer. I applied some blue watercolor to create the wash. Let this dry and flick some gold splatters. Adhere some of the patterned paper to 2 sides of this layer. I then stamped the floral cluster using multi-color stamping technique. I would prefer to have a stamping tool like Misti for this technique as that makes it easier to stamp in the same position using various colors. Die-cut the image. Adhere to the layer and adhere the layer to the cardbase.

To finish, I adhered some black crystals.
The next stop in the hop is the wonderful Galina Filippenko
