Tweet Holidays with MFT


Today I am sharing a couple of projects using this super cute stamp set from My Favourite Things:

I stamped the images on copic friendly paper with Gina K Amalgam jet black ink. After colouring with copic markers I die cut the images with the matching dies and then applied embossing ink with the Lawn Fawn embossing ink pen over the white areas of the birds' hats and on the birdhouse. I then sprinkled Lawn Fawn Textured  White embossing powder over the ink and heat seat.

The background is created by blending Distress Oxide inks in Picked Raspberry, Abandoned Coral and Squeezed Lemonade and then misting with shimmer spray. I then die cut a circle out of a piece of Lawn Fawn 6x6 Knit Picky Fall paper to create the opening and adhered the patterned paper panel with foam adhesive over the inked background. The bird house and branches are adhered with the Lawn Fawn glue tube while the birdies and mistletoe are adhered with foam adhesive. The card is finished off with a sentiment banner and some Studio Katia iridescent crystals.

These birds and branches are copic colored and die cut with the matching dies. I then ink blended a 
4 ¼" x 5½" panel with Distress oxide inks in Stormy Sky, Squeezed Lemonade, Abandoned Coral and Picked Raspberry, misted with water and die cut with the Lawn Fawn Reverse Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Window dies. The largest die created the window frame that is adhered with foam adhesive.

The inner portion is die cut with the next size smaller window die, using the inside piece as the background.

Sentiment is from the stamp set and Confetti mix sequins from Pretty Pink Posh add a final touch of bling to the card.

Thanks for stopping by to take a look, stay tuned as the team will be sharing some kit projects very soon!

More Merry Little Christmas


I am back with another card featuring the Avery Elle Have a Merry Little Christmas stamp set.

Here is another look at the images I was working with.

The bear, deer with the blue hat and owl were colored with Prismacolor watercolour pencils. All images are stamped with Gina K Amalgam black ink.

I die cut a sheet of blue diagonal striped paper from the Lawn Fawn Really Rainbow 6x6 paper pad and the window from the rainbow snowflakes paper in the same paper pad. The die used is the Mama Elephant Peek a Frame die.

I also added a few highlights with a white gel pen. The sentiment is gold heat embossed and from the Lawn Fawn Winter Village stamp set.

After arranging and adhering everything on a white card stock panel, popping up the sentiment strip and hedgehog with foam adhesive, I adhered the panel to a Kraft card base. The final touch is a smattering of gold Studio Katia sequins.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

Avery Elle: A Merry Little Christmas

Happy Thanksgiving to all our American Scrap Shotz friends!

Rosie here with the first of a few posts featuring the Avery Elle Merry Little Christmas stamp set and matching dies.

I began by watercoloring these images stamped with Gina K Amalgam black ink which is can be used with both alcohol and water based markers. I then colored the images with Zig Clean Color brush markers which are water-colour type markers. The images were also highlighted with a white gel pen, Nuvo crystal drops and a glitter pen. 

The background is inked with Distress Oxide inks in Shaded Lilac, Salty Ocean and Faded Jeans and then sprayed with Imagine Crafts Frost shimmer spray. The snow background is an offcut from another card cut makes a great snowy hill. Studio Katia Winter Wonderland Fusion sequins provide some shine to the finished card.

Thanks for taking a look and happy crafting!
