I used The Magic Lamp Stencil on a piece of white card stock to make a background! So much fun!
I stamped the genie and the lamp images on white Hammermill card stock in 110 lb weight with Mememto Black Ink.
Genie Bottom – BG10, BG11, BG53, BG13 and white gel pen accents

I used scraps to adorn my project, just looked for complementary shades from the colors in the patterned paper. Images were popped up with foam tape. Sentiment embossed with Versamark Ink on maroon card stock with Gold Embossing Powder to complete the card. THANKS for checking my project out. If you have questions, don’t hesitate to ask!
This card features a 2×3 stamp set that was one of the Stamps of the Month. You can see the entire set below.
I used a stamp positioner and the Wreath Builder Stencil from Gina K Designs to create the wreath with chick images and a smaller heart stamp to create the front of my card panel.
I used a rainbow pattern of aqua pigments and colored the images as you would watercolor. I used red to color all the hearts. Once dried, I added a small amount of glossy accents to each of the hearts for added shine and dimension.
To finish my card, I matted several layers and heat embossed my sentiment on a circle punch using black glitter card stock for added interest.
Measurement of my finished card is 5.5 in x 5.5 in square.
Watercolor panel – 4.25 in x 4.25 in
Black Matt – 4 3/8 in x 4 3/8 in
Red Matt – 5 in x 5 in
Black Matt – 5 3/8 in x 5 3/8 in
Red Card Base- 5.5 in x 5.5 in (I glue a piece of lightweight white card stock or copy paper slightly smaller and adhere only at the top so you can write your message easily inside when using darker card bases.
Sentiment heat embossed with Alabaster White on black glitter card stock and matted with red to coordinate with the other layers.
This slimline card was extremely fun to make because Kawaii Cuties from Stamp Anniething has so many images included in each set, slimline cards are how you can have enough real estate to hold ALL THIS CUTENESS!!!!!
I find myself wanting to be late sending all my birthday cards this year, because I am absolutely in love with this sentiment! How cute is the sentiment, “sorry, I’m Choco-late!”
To make this slimline card, I used one of StampAnniething’s slimeline dies. This one is a stitched scallop die. Next, I used a combination of distressed inks from my stash to ink blend the background. I used spun sugar, squeezed lemonade, carved pumpkin, and at the very top I used a little bit of barn door to deepen the pink. I flicked some fresh, clean water onto the panel, as it will cause the distressed ink to react, and leave a bleached effect. I then mounted the ink panel onto a piece of card stock in a darker teal, giving approximately a quarter inch larger than the cut panel. The teal piece measures 3.5 x 8.5.
The first quarter release from Kawai Cuties by StampAnniething has some amazing sets. They are very versatile and you can mix and match on all different projects. This particular card uses the stamp set and coordinating dies from: Life is What You Bake It and I Will Never Dessert You.
I used COPIC markers to color my images. The following combinations were used:
I heat embossed the sentiment using Silver embossing powder on the same colored card stock I matted my base with to keep everything coordinated. To finish off the card, I created a white card-base to adhere my finished panel to. Finished card size is folded, 3.5 x 8.5. The card-base was made with white 110 pound card-stock cut 7 x 8.5, scored at 3.5.
I used Scrappy Boy Stamps’ set called Practically Perfect (pictured here) to make this slimline style card.
I used a letter-size (8.5 x 11) sheet of Banana Cream card stock from FSJ/Spellbinders to create my card base. You can modify the size to your preference. I then cut a card front that was a quarter of an inch on all sides smaller than the base in Hammermill 100 lb white card stock. I used 2 StampAnniething stencils and dye-based ink to ink blend my background, which included a citycape with the tops of the city buildings being the bottom third of the card.
On the top half, I made a night sky. I used a circle die to create a mask and then placed the sun ray stencil over top of the mask to ink blend to create additional interest. I removed my circle mask, which left clean paper. I used a light yellow to ink blend the circle to create the glowing moon.
I used 2 characters ftom the set: The Chimney Sweep and the girl with the open umbrella. I stamped both images on a piece of Hammermill White 100 lb card stock. I used my Copic 100 marker to color in the girl with the umbrella, as I wanted to make her look like she was in the shadows. You can use a black Sharpie, too. Color in everything to create a silouette.
Next, I colored up the Chimney Sweep.
Skin- E04,E11, E21, E00, R20 and E000
Hair – E89, E59,E34 and E57
Clothes & Hat – B000,B21, B23 & B26 (dirty them up using various T-family markers)
I used the T-family to create soot on his face.
I used some scrap black card stock and stamped the sentiment using Versamark ink and Brutus Monroe Alabaster White embossing powder to heat emboss the sentiment.
Intentionally put aside some time this weekend to do some crafting. Used the Colorado Craft Company stamp set , “Sweet Friend – Cupcake.” This was such a fun image to color and due to its substantial size, can be cut in half to make two separate A2 sized cards.
Here is a card I made last year featuring Tombow water-based markers and Art Impression stamps.
