With this cool fall sweeter weather in full swing, what would be better than warm fuzzy hugs?
I used the Mama Elephant Warm Fuzzy Hugs big word die, modifies to snip off the word Warm. Die cut once with fun foam, then again with a flocked card stock, giving it a fuzzy feeling. It was just impossible to capture on camera.
Using a warm grey card stock, the background was cut from a stitched rectangle, with a brush of pumice stone distress ink to give it more dimension. Koala Hugs & Little Agenda Koala’s made a perfect addition, along with the both flowers as accents from the Tree Branch Cover die set, all from Mama Elephant as well.
Mama Elephant knocks it out of the park again and again – each new release they drop leaves me excited, and broke 😛
My latest haul included Me and My Dinosaur stamp & die set, along with this Slimline Scenescapes builder die set. This was my first go at using the Scenescapes Builder set, and it didn’t quite turn out as saw it in my head. Does that ever happen to you too? Once I had it all assembled, I realized it needed a bit more something for the background, but the Dinosaur’s made it super cute so I still kept it instead of disassembling it and starting from scratch.
Assembly of the Slimline Scenescape Builder is actually pretty easy – MaMa Elephant has a great video showing the assembly of the card base, and having assembled pop-up-box cards before, it was actually pretty easy.
I am going to have another try at making a project with this Scenescape builder die set again soon – stay tuned!
I have had this Sizzix cupcake for for a while now, and I had a stroke of inspiration when I saw Doodlebug’s Hey Cupcake enamel sprinkles in my local craft supply store. I knew I had to pull out this die set to make a card with these cute sprinkles!
The construction of the cupcake was super easy – I used 110lb card-stock for the base, cut just above the score line to allow a top folding card base.
Using foam tape under the cupcake base and ‘icing’ layers gave it just the right pop of dimension; and a C00 Coptic marker to lightly add in some shading to create more dimension in the icing.
A white gel pen & crystal effects added a perfect gloss on the cherry – glued flat to the icing layer.
