PSL Card Making Time

Tuesday, September 6th, 2022

Break out the MFT Autumn Blessing stamps and a Pumpkin spice from Lawn Fawn and we’re making PSL Cards.  We are mixing things up a bit this month, Tara is on the move and packing up all her craft stash. So, I’m here with a   throwback card from a blog hop. I chose this one because it’s the same stamps she used in last weeks post.

Tara’s original post —-

I’m featuring Autumn Blessings by MFT once again!  I had a card idea in mind, but tweaked it a bit at the end and added some PSL vibes 😉 so I hope you like it!

Lawn Fawn & MFT latte card

I colored up the pumpkins from the MFT set and the Pumpkin Spice Latte stamp by Lawn Fawn with Distress Ink & water.   They were all stamped on water color card stock with Archival Ink.  I cut them out with the coordinating dies.  I decided afterwards that this would be a fun project for Distress Embossing Glaze, so I used Clear Embossing Pen to color in the mug and glazed it to give a nice shiny mug!  I used the glaze over Clear Embossing Ink on the sentiment, which I stamped directly on the Kraft card base.

I really wanted to pair these pumpkins with Buffalo Plaid, but my new stamp didn’t arrive in time (I’ll have some fun with it in the near future though!) so I found some patterned paper to use.  A touch of silk ribbon and some glitter (Distress Stickles are the perfect ‘spice’ here… they are discontinued, but still a fave of mine.  Buy some if you find them!) are the finishing touches for my fun FALL card!

I’m not gonna lie, autumn cards are my favorite and I love seeing the creative mix of cards by everyone this time of year.

Inky hugs,

Some FURRY Tracey Hey Fun

Friday, February 11th, 2022

 

Happy Friday! Here we are, the weekend before Valentines Day, so I suppose I could have gone with something mushy for today’s Random Acts of Cardness prompt, but instead I chose FURRY! Not that we aren’t mushy with our furry friends. 😉  I also wanted to break out another Tracey Hey stamp set, and remind you there is still time to visit and comment on our Wild ‘n Whimsy Inspiration Hop for your chance to win one of these sweet stamp sets! And with that… here is my card:

 

 

 

Isn’t this little pup a cutie? While personally I always choose red rubber boots 😀  I decided to give this guy bright yellow ones. He comes from the Hot Dog set, along with two other sweet wiener dogs and accompanying sentiments. I added clouds and a sentiment from an older Lawn Fawn set. The sky and ground are distress inks, with the help of a die cut mask for the grass. The card base is made from sour apple My Favorite Things cardstock.

 

 

If you are wondering about the sentiment, it continues on the inside, along with a sticker from my previous teaching life:

Dreaming of a Summer Scene…

Monday, January 31st, 2022

 

Crazy but true, it’s the last day of January! That means it’s the last day to participate in this month’s Random Acts of Cardness Challenge – and I’m here today with a little inspiration for the prompt, SCENE. Where I am it’s still the depths of winter, but I can still dream, right?

 

 

Sand, surf, blue skies, a tropical drink – I like this dream scene! 😉  It’s made using On the Beach stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn. All the elements are coloured with Copic markers. Did you know that Scrap ‘n Stamp now carries MFT cardstock? I used Caribbean Sea for… the sea. The sky is blended with tumbled glass distress oxide ink, and the sand with antique linen stippled with a little gathered twigs.

My favourite part of this stamp set? The tiki drink is as big as the bear’s head. 😀
