I've been playing with the Ninja-mazing Stamp Set again, love these little ninjas, they're so much fun.
I started with a white card base and cut a large rectangle from some black cardstock with my Blueprints 15.

I cut a smaller white rectangle with Blueprints 20, and then cut out a circle from the centre and did some inlay die cutting, replacing it with a circle of red cardstock so that the whole looked like the Japanese flag.

I stamped 2 of the Ninjas from the stamp set on Bristol Smooth cardstock and coloured them with my Zig markers. This time I didn't use any water, just blending them with themselves for a stronger more opaque effect. Not quite such a subtle blend as Copics, but it's not too bad.

I cut them out with the matching dies and stamped a sentiment from the same set onto some black cardstock, heat embossing in white.

I cut that into a small strip and adhered on my card with some shallow foam tape and popping up the ninjas around it with some foam dimensionals.

I finished off with a few red glittery enamel dots.

I'm Glad We're Friends


I'm still working my way through the cards in my draft folder that I built up a couple of months ago when I had some time on my hands.....whatever happened to that?!

This is a very simple card made with the ultra cute Snuggle Bunnies set from My Favorite Things, it's just so fun making cards with these.

I stamped the images with some Versafine Onyx Black and coloured them with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens and cut them out with the matching Die-namics. I love these pens, but it can be quite tricky matching them to the papers and I broke my own rule here of choosing the paper first and then colouring lol. This was the closest match I could get from my stash.
I stamped the sentiment on some smooth white cardstock and I bridged the gap between the white and coloured papers with a strip of silver miri card. I popped the whole thing up a little on my cardbase using some craft foam. I decided where I wanted my pair to be and coloured the area that would be beneath them with a grey marker. Then I popped up the bunny and teddy with some foam tape and finished with a few grey and white enamel dots.

Items Used

Friend you're the best


I had a play with my MFT Blueprints 15 today to create a layered card with vellum.

I love adding vellum to my layers as it stops the card from looking too 'heavy', even with a few layers.

I white embossed a piece of 5.5 by 4.25 inch watercolour cardstock using the Wavy Colouring Book background stamp and then did some ink blending with my Distress Inks, I've listed colours and products at the end of my post.

Once dry I cut into the piece with the larger angled die from the set, giving me 2 pieces. I then cut a piece of heavyweight vellum with the largest die and layered that between my 2 inked pieces, covering the hole left in the base.

I added a die cut strip of cherry lustre cardstock to the side, white embossed a sentiment on a scrap of the vellum and cut that with the sentiment strip die.

I cut out my word once in cherry cardstock and several times in white and layered them together with adhesive and then lined the letters up above my sentiment strip.

Finally I finished with a few sequins.

Items used
Cold Pressed Watercolour Paper
Distress Inks - Antique Linen, Tattered Rose, Victorian Velvet, Aged Mahogany
Smooth White Cardstock
White Detail Embossing Powder
Cherry Lustre Cardstock
