You're A Gem Friendship Cards - Same Stamps Different Looks


Hey All!

Back again today to share with you a couple of cards I made using the same stamps to get different looks!

The stamps I'm using today comes from an older Ink On 3 set, Magic Dragons.
This set is super cute with lots of fun images, but for today's post I will just be using the gem stones from the set to create some friendship cards.

For my first card, I did some ink blending with distress oxide inks to add color to my background panel. I used Bristol paper, stamped the images in with the Juicy Inkpad, then I heat set it with white embossing powder to make the lines pop once colored.

To create this cute little shaker window, I used a small heart die and added these beautiful little sparkling crystals. Used the heart die to cut the sentiment banner and lined it up next to the shaker window.

For the next card, once again I stamped the gems using the Juicy Ink only this time onto black cardstock and then used gold embossing powder.

Then all I did was cut my black cardstock piece into equal sections, then spaced them out onto the card base popping them up with foam tape. Stamped my sentiment with the Blackout Ink and then added glossy accents to each gem.

These cards were easy to do and relatively quick to make. Hope you were inspired by these Gem Cards ft. the Magic Dragons set.

Kobi Bear Goes Fishing Shaker Card

Hi there! 

Today I'm taking you along to see Kobi the Bear who swam out to the middle of the ocean and found himself some nice rocks to sit on and go fishing, lol! 

Kobi Bear Goes Fishing Shaker Card by ilovedoingallthingscrafty

To create this card I began by die cutting the Scalloped Square die from one of two pieces of Bristol paper, cut to 5x7 inches. I then stamped Kobi on the top piece of cardstock and the fishy critters on to the bottom piece. After that, I colored all the images in using Zig Clean Color brushes. 

Next, I die cut the coordinating dies for both the Under the Sea and Shell-ebration images from post-it tape to create some masks and placed them over the underwater critters. This leaves a white space around the critters but honestly, I really didn't mind as I did not feel like fussy cutting them out!

The next step was to color in the water. I lined up both pieces of cardstock, temporarily adhered them together and then used Distress Oxide Inks to blend out the different shades of blue for the water. I then stamped out the fish hook on the bottom cardstock piece and used a ruler to extend and draw the fishing line on the top piece of cardstock. To add some shine to the waves, I used the Brush Stroke Waves Stencil and added glimmer paste, avoiding any of the areas that were colored in. 

Once the paste was dry I added the acetate sheet to the window opening and then built up the well for the shaker bits using foam tape. Next, I added all the sequins, confetti and cones to the middle area of where the window would be, removed all the backing from the tape and carefully aligned the window opening with the bottom panel. Now it's ready to shake, shake, shake!

As a finishing touch, I cut down a very thin wood dowel to the size I needed and wrapped some black sewing thread on the end and lined it up with the fishing line that I had drawn and glued it in place. I then added some glossy accents to Kobi's nose and attached the entire card front to a 5x7 top folding card. And that is it for this card!

Hope you were inspired by this fun Kobi Bear Goes Fishing Shaker Card today!


I appreciate the time you spent here, so thank you for stopping by 😊
Until next time... Happy Crafting 👋
