Fab-boo-lous Card with Ashlee


Hey everyone....

Ashlee here with you today and I know halloween is finished but I just love this little "Fab-boo-lous Friend" set from "Hello Sweetums" so much and I think it is perfect for cards for friends any time of the year!!

For this one I created a slimline card base and then using some distress oxide inks in the shades Shaded lilac, Wilted violet and Seedless preserves I did an ink blended background.


I used a die cut called eucalyptus forest and cut it twice with black cardstock to make a spooky background prefect for the little ghosties....

I then splattered it with some Opaque white paint for a fun effect...



Using a CZ designs boo die I cut it twice from black cardstock and also from a piece of card that I had sparkled using WOW! Clarabelle sparkles....

(To do the sparkles I just put some double sided adhesive all over the card and then covered it in sparkles, rubbed them in and then tipped off the excess)

The sentiment was embossed on black cardstock with WOW! opaque bright white embossing powder.

A touch of sequins to finish the card off and it was done!!

Hope you like it, Hugs Ashlee.

Yeti or Not Christmas Card with Julia

Hello everyone!

This is Julia and I am beyond excited to be joining the Hello Sweetums Design Team!! I still can hardly believe it. Today I want to share my very first project with you. I used the adorable "Yeti Set Go" and "Snowy Smooches" stamp sets.

If you would like to see how I made this card just click on the video below or just keep reading!



First, I stamped the Yeti from "Yeti Set Go" and the trees from "Snowy Smooches", I watercolored all the images using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.



I die cut the two panels using the "Slippery Slopes" and one with the "Mountains of Magic" dies. The background was lightly ink blended with Victorian Velvet Distress ink. Then I used a background stamp to create the look of falling snow and heat embossed it in white. The two hills were blended with Cracked Pistachio and the mountains with Tumbled Glass Distress ink. I also die cut the snow caps from a glittery white cardstock.



I embossed the sentiment from the "Yeti Set Go" stamp set in silver. Then, I first adhered the mountains to the background and added the snow caps using liquid glue. The hills were adhered using foam tape. Finally, I added all my images using foam tape and adhered everything to an A2 sized card base.


I hope you enjoyed this one! Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!

Patterned Paper Squeak Cheeks Card with Thi

Hello, friends. Thi here and I am sharing a card I made using the adorable Squeak Cheeks stamp set. Today I wanted to created circular spotlights on my card and I used the coordinating die for the hamster ball to create the circles! So this entire card was created with one stamp set and it’s coordinating dies.


I started by stamping and coloring my images with Copic markers. I die cut them with coordinating dies and moved on to the background.

For the background, I die cut the circles with the coordinating dies. Next I lined it up to a piece of Bristol smooth card stock and ink blended with Distress Oxide in Antique Linen, Dried
Marigold, Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn. I then used the little leaf from the stamp set and stamped pattern paper using a light green pigment ink.



To put it all together, I filled the back of the “patterned paper” piece with foam tape and lined it up to the ink blended piece and adhered it on. Next I added my colored images with foam tape. For the sentiment, I heat embossed with white embossing powder onto lime green card stock and adhered that on with more foam tape.


And that’s it for my card! I hope you like my card as much as I liked making it! Thank you for stopping by and have an amazing, crafty day!

Alcohol Ink Blended Halloween Card with Angie

Hi, crafty friends! It's Angie here, and I'm back with a new card and video. Today, I've got a cute little Halloween card to share with you, made with lots of ink!

Be sure to watch the video tutorial below, it shows how this card was made! There's also a supply list at the end of this post for all the products used.

 
To create this card, I started by spreading droplets of alcohol ink blending solution, onto some 4x6" glossy photo paper, and then added drops of alcohol ink. To save some money, I actually used a ShinHan marker refill instead of alcohol ink, and immediately used a camera lens cleaner puffer to push the ink around, leaving a nice tie dye effect. Everything was then left aside to dry completely.


Next, I cut an A6 panel out of some card, and then covered the sides in black and white striped washi tape to give a more 'scary' pattern to the card. While the ink was drying, I also stamped and coloured my images from the Fab-boo-lous Friend stamp set with ShinHan markers, and cut them out with the coordinating dies.

I pieced together the scene, with adhesive foams, and glued on clear droplets with Glossy Accents as nice a touch to go with the ghosts. Finally, I thought the sentiment should stand out on a banner, so I white heat embossed it onto a black cardstock, and cut out an accent on the edge.


And that finishes off my card! Halloween isn't celebrated much in Australia, but it was so fun to make this card. I hope you've enjoyed the video and this blog and are inspired to create. Thank you so much for visiting and happy crafting!

Stencilled Autumn/Fall Card with Angie

Hi, crafty friends! It's Angie here, and I'm back with a new card and video. This time, I decided to mix and match elements from older and newer sets, to create this adorable Autumn/Fall inspired design!

Be sure to watch the video tutorial below, it shows how this card was made! There's also a supply list at the end of this post for all the products used.



To create this card, I started out with a small panel of smooth Bristol cardstock. I cut out some birch trees using a die from my stash. I then used some paper tape to temporarily adhere the trees down, while I created a mask around them. Over the top of that, I created a grass shaped mask with the brand new Grass is Greener die set. To create a little Autumn inspired sunset, a gradient of Scattered Straw, Spiced Marmalade and Abandoned Coral was blended with a brush. I removed the tape to reveal a white silhouette of the tree trunks.


While everything was drying, I stamped my images with brown ink to match the warm colours, coloured them with alcohol markers and die cut with their coordinating dies. I used the yeti and scarf from Yeti Set Go and to create the illusion of maple leaves, I used the lettuce from Squeak Cheeks, plus a small leaf from Funky Monkeys for some variety.


For the yeti to stand on, I bunched the leaves together to create a pile, then glued all the images together. For a pop of dimension, adhesive foams were attached to the back. Finally, a little sentiment was stamped on the right hand side, and a tiny leaf placed on one of the tree branches.

And that finishes my card for today! Thank you so much for reading, I hope you're inspired to create some Autumn/Fall designs!

Halloween Slimline card with Ashlee

Hey everyone....

It’s Ashlee here and I've got a spooktacular slim line card to share with you all today using the set "Fab-boo-lous friend" from Hello Sweetums latest release!!

I'm loving creating slim line cards at the moment, they are so much fun!!

To start this card I used distress oxide inks to create a blend of colour and then using some black cardstock I cut a piece to fit over the top and die cut some windows so the ink blended background would show through...


I stamped, coloured and die cut three little ghosties and added sweet accessories to all of them. I love how the ghosts can carry the adorable pumpkin bucket and lollies!!

I heat embossed a sentiment using WOW! opaque bright white embossing powder on black cardstock and added a piece of it to each window....

Finished the card off with a touch of sequins for a bit of bling!!

Hope you like my spooktacular card today, Happy crafting all!!

Spooktacular Interactive Wobbler Card with Angie

Hi, crafty friends! It's Angie, back with a new card and video. Today, I'm using the brand new Fab-boo-lous Friend stamp and die set to create this spooky-cute interactive action wobbler card! This set has a lot of Halloween themed images, but can be used for other occasions!

Be sure to watch the video tutorial below, it shows how this card was made! There's also a supply list at the end of this post for all the products used.



I started my card by cutting an A6 panel out of some Bristol cardstock with a stitched rectangle die. I then covered it with a gradient of Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Inks. While it was still wet, I tapped on droplets of water, and blotted them up with paper towel. A little bit of silver watercolour was then flicked over the top and everything was set aside to dry.



 I then stamped, coloured and die cut the images. To create the illusion of the ghost floating in the sky, I created two styles of clouds from the Sparkle Bright stamp set. For the first, I simply die cut it out of white cardstock. For the second, I silver embossed the outline on vellum and cut it out.

All my images were adhered together and onto the dried blue panel. For some dimension, I created two white strips and added these to the top and bottom edges of the card. On the bottom strip, I stamped the sentiment 'you're a spooktacular friend' in dark black ink, then glued all my images together and propped them up with adhesive foams.

For my little ghost, a little action wobbler was added to the back of it, and placed into the centre of the card for an extra fun element!


That finishes off today's card! Thank you so much for reading the blog, I hope you enjoyed my spooktacular little friendship design. I hope I've given you some inspiration. Happy Halloween and happy crafting!
