Ahoy Matey

Hi there! I’m up on the magengo blog today with a fun card.

I used the Ahoy Aoy Stamp Set. How cute are these stamps! I absolutely love them and this stamp is jam packed with images.
For my card today I used a light blue card for my base and I die cut a zigzag card panel using Sunny Studio Stamps die. I then ink blended some waves onto my background using some distress ink in tumbled glass. I then die cut some clouds in white card and lightly ink blended the edges again using tumbled glass distress ink.
Using my silhouette machine I die cut the boat and used my inks to colour the boat. I then added an octopus and used my inks to colour the octopus in. I added a smiley face to the octopus.
I then printed and coloured my stamps and coloured in the images with copic markers,. I then cut them out and started to adhere the images to my card. I didn’t have a sentiment that said Ahoy Matey so I used my silhouette machine to die cut the greeting. I used my markers to colour the greeting before adhering them onto my card. I loved how this turned out and those images are just so cute!

New Year Critter Card

Hello crafty friends I’m sharing a sneak peak today from the brand new Time For Tea Designs Release



I can’t pick a favourite critter as they are all so cute. I loved colouring these cuties in.
For my card today I ink blended a piece of card using some red, Pink and Orange distress ink using the Beautiful Blender Brush.I wanted to add some stars to my background and I used the star from the Mew Are The Best Stamp Set. I used some Versamark ink and Wow Gold Embossing Powder and heat set this.I then used the brand new Die-namic Display Card Die and I just used the small die with tabs on which I die cut twice, I then used the grass edge die from the Landscape Edge Die and ran this through my die cutting machine again. I then inked up the card sing some green distress ink and adhered the grass panels to my card.

Next I stamped and coloured in the critters. I then die cut the letters 2021 and adhered them to my card using foam pads. Once these were adhered down I then adhered the critters down.

I had so much fun creating this card!! I hope you are all enjoying the previews of the exciting new release! There are so many fun products in this release you will be spoilt for choice.

Honey Friends Bear Card

Hello there!

I’m sharing a fun card today on the Magengo blog.

I’m sharing a sweet card today using the Honey Friend stamp set. These stamps are just so cute and I love the bear that’s found the honeypot!

I wanted to make a slimline card for my images as I can fit more on the card than a standard size card. I firstly printed the stamps out and then coloured them in with my markers. After the colouring was complete I trimmed them out with my scissors. Next I used some distress ink to add some colour to my card. 

Once the ink blending was completed I adhered my images onto the card base. I then added a die cut to the top of the tree and adhered my sentiment.

To finish my card off I added some dovecraft enamel dots to the honey jar so it looks like honey leaking out of the jar. I then adhered some yellow and gold sequins onto my card. The bears and bees were so fun to colour!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Magengo Mice Bauble Card

Hello again! I’m sharing a second card today that I have up on the Magengo blog.

 I’m sharing a cute mouse Christmas card today. For my card today I used the Christmas Tree Ball Cut File and the gorgeous Christmas Mice Stamps

To start with I made the bauble Christmas card by welding the image together. I then went ahead and cut all the other elements out on my machine. I then started adhering all the pieces of the house together. To make the card a bit more secure I die cut a circle out and adhered this onto the card where I will write the greeting. For some of the pieces I coloured them in with my markers and then adhered them down onto the card. 

Once all my pieces were adhered to the bauble I went ahead and coloured in the mice. I used my Copic Markers to colour the images in. I then adhered the little mice onto my card using some foam pads.

I had so much fun making this card and it was really exciting using the cut file. I think this will be a really fun Christmas card to send out especially as it’s a shaped card it just adds a little bit more fun to your cards.

I love the little mice holding their baubles and lights!

3D Jar Card

Hello! I hope your keeping well I’m sharing a couple of cards today.

My first card is a fun one! I wanted to make a 3D card using my silhouette machine. I love creating fun cards and I knew I had to get this design straight away!

This is a Lori Whitlock design and I added a few extra flowers to my jar. I also added an apple die cut as I used some apple paper. The stamps are Hello Bluebird.
I firstly started by cutting out the Jar and all the flowers. I then die cut the apple paper and apple. Once all my pieces were cut I put the jar together then added the paper and apple. I coloured one the pieces using my markers and inks.
I then stamped my images and using my copic markers I coloured the images in. I then adhered the flowers down before adding my images to the jar. For my sentiment I used the waffle flower Jars sentiment and stamped my greeting. I love this sentiment! This was so fun to put together and I wanted to create a card that will bring a smile to someone’s face especially in the times were in.

Thank you so much for stopping by today I have a few extra cards to share today.
