Buggie Wiper Card with Thi

Hello friends, Thi here and today I am sharing a wiper card I made using Hello Sweetums Bitty Bugs clear stamps. When I saw this set, I knew I would be making a cute little buggy scene but decided to make an interactive card to play with all the flying buggies!



I started by coloring all my buggies with Arteza watercolor brush markers and die cutting with their coordinating dies.


Next, I ink blended my background and grass with Distress Inks onto Bristol Smooth card stock cut to 4.5 x 6 – to leave room to cut down for the wiper base later. For the sky piece, I blended Distress Ink in Broken China, Tumbled Glass and Spun Sugar. For the grass piece, used Distress Ink in Shabby Shutters and Old Paper for a muted green look.


At this point is when you will cut down your ink blended piece to make the wiper - there are so many instructions online on how to make a wiper card that I will not bore you with that here. I also know a few major companies make a Wiper die for those who do not like to do math! Just remember to start off with a big enough background so that you can trim it down or die cut it to the proper size. I also used Hello Sweetums Grass is Greener Metal Die set to create the grass border on the front piece of my wiper.


After I finished assembling my wiper base, I heat embossed my sentiments with white embossing powder. Lastly, I adhered all the critters on with strong double-sided tape!


Interactive cards are so fun and these images made the perfect buggie scene! I love it when that little bee pops up!


I hope you liked my project today and thank you so much for reading! Have an amazing day!

Snowy Slimline Scene with Ashlee


Hey everyone... Ashlee here....

Have you checked out the SUPER awesome new release that's now available at "Hello Sweetums"..??!! It's a release full of so many cuties and fun new dies too!!

I have a slim line card to share with you today using the "Snowy Smooches" set...
I created a snowy scene using lots of images and some of the new "Slippery Slopes" and "Mountains of Magic" dies...


I'm really enjoying making these slim line cards as you can fit so much onto one card and if you want to create a scene its the perfect size!!


I used some distress oxide ink to create a blue sky and then stamped on the sentiment from snowy smooches using Memento tuxedo black ink....


I coloured all the images up using Copic markers....

The mountains of magic I die cut from some grey cardstock and then using the snowy top I die cut from some white cardstock and added them to the tops of the mountains!!


I think these penguins look like they are having an absolute blast of a time in their snowy environment don't you??!!

I hope you enjoyed this card and feel inspired to create a slim line card too...
Trust me once you start you won't be able to stop hehe!!

Happy crafting everyone, Hugz Ashlee

Buggie Slimline Card with Angie

Hi, crafty friends! It's Angie, here, and today I'm sharing an adorable bug themed slimline card! These long, skinny cards are fantastic for adding lots of stamps and other elements into one scene.

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 start off my design, I cut a panel out of Bristol smooth cardstock, measuring 20.5 x 8.8cm. I then wanted to create a background which looked like dawn or dusk, so I ink blended a soft, pastel colour scheme, with Worn Lipstick, Spun Sugar, Tattered Rose, Squeezed Lemonade and Antique Linen Distress Oxide Inks.



The scene wouldn't be complete without a meadow, so I die cut a long strip of grass using the straight die from the Grass is Greener die set. The whole thing was covered in Twisted Citron, and the top was darkened with Mowed Lawn. I then set everything aside to dry.


Then, I stamped all the bugs from the brand new Bitty Bugs stamp set, plus a few mushrooms and flowers. To match the dawn/dusk background, I coloured the images with similar light shades using my ShinHan Touch Twin brush markers, and included some minty blues to compliment the scene. I then cut everything out with the coordinating dies, and placed adhesive foams onto the back of them.


I pieced my scene together, making sure that there was lots of dimension created with the help of the adhesive foams. I placed the bugs in front, and had the flowers placed behind the grass, to give the card some depth.


For an extra bit of sparkle, I silver heat embossed the 'some buggie loves you' sentiment and cut it out with the coordinating die, which creates a nice border around it. Finally, I then placed tiny clear sequins around it.

And that finishes off my card design for today! I hope you're inspired to create your own slimline cards with the Bitty Bugs stamp set, and don't forget to check out the rest of the brand new release over at Hello Sweetums!

Cool As Ice Card with Ashlee

Hey everyone....

Ashlee here with you and I've some new Hello Sweetums inspiration for you tonight and this time featuring the super cool set Anything is Popsicle (co-ordinating dies also available)

I thought it would be fun to create a patterned background using a stencil and WOW! embossing powder to pop behind these super cute popsicles...


To create the background I used a square stencil, placed it on a white card base and inked all over the stencil with WOW! embossing ink using a blending tool. Once I'd covered it all I removed the stencil and then covered in the embossing powder Serene, tipped off excess and heat embossed.


I used the same embossing powder to create the circle of colour behind the images too. The popsicles were coloured with some foam tape for dimension!!

I love adding sequins to finish off my cards so a touch of them and the card was done.

I hope you enjoy this card, happy crafting to all.
