AlexSyberiaDesign May Digi Stamp Release Blog Hop + Giveaway | Kokeshi Doll Friendship Cards


AlexSyberiaDesign May Digi Stamp Release Blog Hop + Giveaway | Kokeshi Doll Friendship Cards

Hello Friends! 

Welcome to Alex Syberia Design May Release Blog Hop and Giveaway. I will have all those details at the end of this post. I am in love with these Kokeshi dolls from Alex's release and had so much fun creating these two colorful Kokeshi Doll Friendship Cards. 


CARD DETAILS

For my first card, I combined the KOKESHI DOLL FUMIKO and the FULL BLOOM digital stamps. I used Paint 3D to manipulate and layer the designs, there are various programs out there and tutorials on how to use digital stamps so I will not explain that process.

I then printed the images out onto Neenah Solar White 80lbs paper and colored the images in using Copic markers.

Next, I trimmed the panel and added it to a black cardstock piece cut to fit an A2 card base.

I then stamped a sentiment from Studio Katia's BLOOMING BUNCH stamp set and added some BLOSSOM SPARKLE CRYSTALS. To finish this card off I added some white gel pen detailing and then some glossy accents to add more dimension and shine.

This next card was printed and colored the same way as the previous card. This time using the KOKESHI DOL MITSUKI and again the FULL BLOOM digital stamps.

This time I trimmed the panel a little more to create a larger border around the panel.

The stamp I used here comes from the YOU GOT THIS stamp set from Simon Says Stamp that I curved along the body of the KOKESHI DOL MITSUKI digital stamp.

The Ton's 4th Anniversary Blog Hop | Day 3

Hello Crafty friends! Today I am uber excited to be Guest Designing for Day 3 of The Ton's 4th Anniversary Blog Hop. This time Effie has introduced 9 new designs for this release. There are some free gifts with purchase promotions ongoing. Head over to The Ton Stamps' blog for more details. 

For my projects, I have created two super cute cards to showcase a few of the new sets from this release. Make sure you read the end of the post to check out the Giveaway details and where to get started on the Hop! Here is my first card featuring the Coming Up Peonies Stamp set.


CARD DETAILS
To start, I stamped out the large peony stamp onto watercolor paper using a watermark ink and then heat set it with white embossing powder. I then used Mijello Mission Gold watercolors to loosely watercolor the flowers in the finished off by adding some tine color splashes.


Next, I die cut the panel using a stitched rectangle die and then glued it onto an A2 card base. I then stamped out the sentiment onto a piece of paper that I had die cut with the same rectangle die to add the stitching to the ends. The Hello, Fabulous stamp comes from the Power Pumps set that I will be sharing in the next card. I then just added some sequins to the card front and finished off the center of the large flower with Stickles glitter and some tiny yellow Nuvo Crystal drops.


Now, what girl would love a pair of these Power Pumps?!?😍 Of course, I had to make them look like Christian Louboutin Patent Glossy Pumps. If I didn't have terrible nurse feet I would love a pair of these LOL... But sadly I have to wear orthotics, so I'll stick to the Stamped kind. It's a lot safer for my health and for my wallet!



To make this card, I began by stamping out the jewels onto a piece of Neenah cardstock using a couple of the grey color inks from the Pewter Mini sets to create the patterned background. I then stamped out the pumps on another piece of paper starting with the grey stamped ink pieces on the pumps. I then used Black Versafine Onyx Ink to add the black layer since I wanted to give these heels a high gloss finish and heat set them with clear embossing powder. Rather than stamping out the red of the sole I used the R46 Copic marker. I then fussy cut the pumps leaving a white edge around the shoes.


Next, I stamped a sentiment from the Power Pumps set onto a strip of white cardstock. I then glued it onto a red strip that I trimmed to the size of the background panel and glued that onto an A2 size black card base.  I then popped the pumps up with foam tape and glued them in place. For an added touch of Bling, I glued on some bows to the heels and added some jewels to the centers. I also finished off the card with some crystals and added glossy accents to the larger jewels on the stamped background. I think this card could be used for so many occasions. I absolutely love how this card turned out and want to make some more for my girlfriends!

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.

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Crafting  :)
