Ice Cream for Summertime

Hello crafty friends! Today I have a summer card to share with you. This is the card I created for the reminder posts at Magnolia Forever and Marvelous Magnolia challenges. Both challenges have the same theme which cannot be anything but SUMMER.

To cool down hot summer, I have created the ice cream themed card. To create the background that matches with ice cream shop, I embossed kraft paper with Wood Grain embossing folder by Sizzix Tim Holtz. Then, I cut the wood paper into stripes and attached to the card base to create wood shop background.
Magnolia Gelato Tilda Time For Ice Cream

This cute Tilda and ice cream shop are from Magnolia “Gelato Tilda” stamp from Summer 2017 collection and “Time for Ice Cream” stamp from Sea Breeze 2013 collection. I colored the image with distress ink.

The ice cream cone die cuts are from CottageCutz.

I have been missing for almost a month to take care of my cat who is sick with chronic kidney disease. Now she is getting better. She can eat and spends her daily life almost like normal. I feel relieved so I created this card to tell myself to relax.

I used Magnolia “Hawaii Tilda” stamp from Capturing Moments 2016 collection. I colored Tilda’s hair in black to represent a Hawaiian girl. The background image is Magnolia “Romantic Sunset” stamp from Wedding 2010 collection. I used chunky white embossing enamel as the sea wave bubbles.

A Mother Cat & Her Kittens

Hello everyone! Today I would like to share a card I created for the new Addicted to Stamps challenge. The theme is

I have created a mother’s day card in cat’s theme. The card base is from Doohickey volume 13. Papers are from Lemon Crafts and blue mulberry paper. I decorated the card with ribbon, lace, doily, and paper flowers to give a soft and sweet look.
Magnolia Napoleon Jasper Mother's Day Card

The image is from Magnolia “Napoleon” stamp from Animals of the Year 2014 collection and “Jasper” stamp from A Christmas Story 2012 collection. The colors of five kittens were inspired by my cats. I decided to colored the mother cat in calico, as calico cats are female and she also matches with the kittens. I added light blue pom pom trim around the image because pom poms are cute and fluffy like kittens.

The paper flowers are in the same color combo as the card.

The alphabets are die cuts from Die-Versions “Little Lizzie” font. I added clear embossing enamel on top each letter to make the word “mom” even pop out.

I would like to enter this card to these challenges.

I always use distress ink to colour the fur as my cats’ colours. I have ginger, cream, grey, and bi-colour cats. All of them are my favourites. Here are the distress ink recipe for these colours.
Ginger – Tea Dye, Vintage Photo, and Walnut Stain
Grey – Pumice Stone, Hickory Smoke, and Black Soot

Strawberry Jam Jar Shaped Card

Hello! Today I have a card using The Paper Nest Doll May new release image to share with everyone. This image is called “Strawberry Jam Emma”.

I have created a jar shaped card with this image. I designed the jar shape by myself using rectangle shapes and round corners. The card base was made from red paper covered with clear embossing enamel to make it glossy like glass jar. Sadly, the photo doesn’t do it justice. The patterned papers are from Maja Design. Doily is from Cheery Lynn Designs die cut. I decorated the jar lid with chiffon trim, and help rope.

CAS Cat & Dog Card

Hello crafty friends! Today is the 1st of May so it’s time new challenge. The card I’m going to share today is the project I have created for 2 challenges. The first one is Magnolia Forever with the theme

And the Storie di Timbri challenge themed

I have created a CAS card featuring a cat and a dog playing in the field together. Even though I’m a cat lover, I think it’s fun to include a dog into this card. I hand stitched along the edges and randomly added paper flowers on the ground.
Magnolia Kitty Little Hoppy with Buttercup

The stamped image is from Magnolia “Kitty Kit” stamp from Spring Fever 2016 and “Little Hoppy with Buttercup” from Little Easter 2013 collection. I colored the image and background with distress ink.

The tag in the top left corner is from LOTV stamp and scalloped circle is from the smallest Spellbinders Lacey circle die. I added a button, paper flower and paper raffia to make it look more interesting.

The black and white cat was inspired by one of my cats. She is about 15 years old but still very pretty that everyone would fall in love including this naughty dog. That’s why the dog gives her a flower.

I would like to enter this card to these challenges.

Thank you for stopping by. Happy May day everyone!
