Cactus Card

Hello and thank you for taking the time to view our creations. It is with great happiness that at bring to you a card that is perfect for sending to that loved one far away. Using this cute cactus stamp from the set of three stamps named: Potted Cactus & Succulents

 Supply list:

Cut craft color cardstock to the size of your card. Trim olive green cardstock 1/4" smaller than your base card size. Cut white watercolor paper 1/2" smaller than your card base. This will create a nice boarder around your top layer (white watercolor).
Pick two to three colors from your watercolor markers to match the craft color and olive green cardstock. Variation: If you don't have watercolor markers, use whatever you have on hand. Ideas of what you can use in their place are regular watercolor paints, distress inks, oxide distress inks. 
Scribble the colors on to your watercolor paper. Try to center these. 

With a brush, take a bit of clean water and run it over your colors. This will blend and disperse the colors in the center of your watercolor paper. Set this aside to dry or use a heat tool to accelerate the drying time. 
Once the paper has dried, stamp the cactus stamp with black ink on top of the watercolor design you just created.
Using the help of your computer, print out the sentiment: "I feel lonely without you". Cut it out as a strip using the help of a crafter's knife and ruler. 
Adhere the strip with the sentiment under the cactus. Try to not cover the cactus or the watercolor you have created. 

Go ahead and glue this top layer of the watercolor paper on to the olive green cardstock.

Using the corner punch, punch out the corners. You can now place the top layer inside these slots to hold this first layer. You can secure it by adding liquid glue to the back of it. 
*Variation: If you do not have this corner punch, you can skip this step or ad a different kind of corner decor.

To finish the card, add some Sea Breeze NUVO drops in different parts of the card to mimic teardrops. 

This completes this sweet card. I hope you get inspired, I hope you create, and be happy.

Celestial Unicorn Card

 Hello friends. Welcome back. Today I am sharing this fun card that uses a celestial unicorn set. The stamps are available from Blank Page Muse.

I love the way this one turned out with the muted blues and grays.

Starting with the background.
The first step is to ink smoosh Weathered Wood and Hickory Smoke Distress inks onto an A2 card base.  I  used the Swirled Stencil to add another layer with Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks.
Cut the panel using the Tim Holtz Deckle Edge Trimmer.

The stamps from the Unicorn Wishes Moon Stars & Word Art set were stamped on Cougar Cardstock with Gina K Almagan ink and Copic colored. The moon and stars were coated with Nuvo Glaze to add shine to the pieces.

The pieces were arranged on the card front that was mounted on an A2 grey cardbase.  After stamping the sentiment, I ink blended coordinating inks so It would match the base. Check out the shine!

Place the stencil on a gift bag.  Using a stamping tool with brown ink, ink over the stencil creating a design on the gift bag.  

Stamp the vintage sewing machine in black ink on white cardstock.  Die cut the image then ink around the image with brown ink.

If someone in your circle is an avid sewer, fill the gift bag with threads and buttons and anything else she will love, plus a gift bag always needs some chocolate.

You are Made of Stardust Card

 Hi everyone! Tonya here this month with my take on the Azalea Creepy Cute Kid Art Rubber Stamp. I know this rubber stamp is suppose to be creepy but I thought wouldn't it be cute to turn the girl into a magical fairy. So lets get started.


Blank Page Muse: Azalea Creepy Cute Kid Art Rubber Stamp

MISTI Stamping Tool

Various Plain and Patterned Cardstocks

Butterfly Printable 

Watercolor Paper 

Watercolor Paint Brush

Colored Pencils

Inks and Watercolors

Foam Pop Dots

Diecut Machine

Spellbinders: Wreath Diecuts

Momenta: Stars Diecuts

Stars and Clear Sequins

Metallic Thread

Paper Cutter


Beacon Adhesive: Zip Dry Adhesive

Placed the stamp onto the MISTI Stamping Tool, inking the stamp with a black waterproof ink and stamp onto a piece of watercolor paper.
I used an assortment of watercolors and inks to watercolor the girl image.
Use colored pencils to add highlights to the girl's face and clothing.

Fussy cut a butterfly and add clear glitter glue and let dry.
 I had wanted to use the whole butterfly but it didn't look right so I cut off the bottom half of the wings.

Adhear those to the backside of the girl.

I already had a 4 1/4"x4 7/8" card base folded in my stash so I cutout the Stars and placed a piece of patterned cardstock to go behind the stars diecut.
Adhere all to the front of the card base. 
Cut and matte the wreath diecut.
Next wrap with metallic thread around before gluing to the card base.
Place foam pop dots to the back of the girl, along with stars and clear sequins to finish off the card.
 There you have it!

Flower Postcard

This postcard was so much fun to make. I put this postcard in an envelope so that the flowers wouldn't get wrapped off in the mail. You could sent this without an envelope just skip the step using craft foam and use really strong glue.

Rubber stamps used:

Additional items needed:
  • Imagination
  • Scissors
  • Alcohol markers
  • Paint brush
  • Water colors
  • Ink
  • Craft Foam
  • Water color paper
  • Card Stock
  • Glue 

1. Cut your water color paper to size. I made mine into postcards 4" x 6." 
2. Then wet the paper. Using water colors I just splashed color all over. If your paint seems to pool in one spot take  a paper towel and pat it dry. This also helps add texture and blending of the colors.
3. Once your water colors are dry. I stamped my flowers on a thick card stock. Then I stamped my postcard where I wanted my flowers to be.

4. Taking alcohol markers I colored everything in. I also colored the green parts on my postcard. Then I cut out the flowers and glued craft foam to the backs of them. Gluing that to the postcards.

5. Don't forget the quote on the top. This stamp set has so many cute quotes to choose from I used the quote, "Stand for something even if it means standing alone"

Hope you enjoyed this flower postcard.
 If you have any questions feel free to message Lasheet and if you choose to make your postcard tag her and Blank Page Muse. Thank you, happy crafting!! ♥

Next, lay the Stars Slimline Stencil over the card front taping it to your tabletop, and using Distress Ink and your choice of a blender, add stars all over the background. Set aside to dry for a few minutes. 
Now, using the same color of ink, blend the color out along the edges of the card. then using black ink, just line the edges for more definition. 

Place Super J near the center of the card and pop him up with foam tape. Using the sentiment that is part of the Super J stamp set, using Versafine Clair Nocturne ink, stamp the sentiment near the bottom of the card. You can emboss the sentiment if you like.

·       Glue

·       Foam dots

·       Journal page

·       Card stock (white and blue)

·       Laminating sheet run through laminator or packaging plastic

·       Seed beads

Step Three

Stamp the butterflies using a waterproof ink such as pigment ink, and color with watercolors. Color body with a silver wax colored pencil. If you have a glitter brush pen, give them a light coat and allow it to dry. Once they are dry, use foam dots to stick them to the card. 


Step Four

Using your favorite ink pad, add ink to the edges of the paper, working your way in.You don't have to do the centre as you will be covering it  Set aside to dry.


Step Five


Grab your blue cardstock (or whatever color you are using). Cut out a window a little smaller than the cardstock used for your flower curtain image. Stick on a piece laminating sheet on the reverse side. Now place foam tape around the opening.

Step Six


Place the card face down.  Do not stick down the top end yet. 


Step Seven 

Add seed beads and secure the top.


Step Eight

Stamp “You are wonderfully, wonderful!” and cut out. Go around the edges with black ink. A make-up sponge is great for this. Arrange on your journal page and glue in place.
