Stampin with Liz Design: Happy Llamadays Card with Video Tutorial!

Hi, welcome everyone to my new blog post! Hope you all enjoyed a great weekend! Today I'm sharing a sweet Christmas card that I've created with the fun stamp set Happy Llamadays from My Favourite Things. Aren't these lama's cute?

I'm just in love with this amazing lama set! I stamped two of these fun guys and diecutted them with the coordinating dies before I started colouring them with my Copic Markers. I kept this card neutral, in sweet Christmas colours. The base of this card is created from Smoky Slate Cardstock from Stampin' Up. I then diecutted a piece of white cardstock with a Wonky Stitched Rectangle die.

To create a fun but winterly scene I sponged a background using a stencil from Stampin' Up. To me it looks like a huge snowflake! I added some sequins in a frosty colour. I coloured the lama's in greys, bleu colours and Christmas red. I'll list all the copics used at the end of this post.

To give this Christmas card a bit of extra Christmas feel, I added text on red cardstock. Well, the cardstock wasn't red to start with, but created with the same copic marker I coloured the gifts from the lama's with. I used this technique for my Christmas card with the cute bulldog last week as well. Just a fun tip to get matching pieces of paper. I then stamped the text with Versamark ink and sprinkled it with white embossing powder before heat setting it with a heat tool. If you would like to see how this card came about, check my Video Tutorial below or watch in HD on YouTube!

Stampin with Liz Design: Deck the Howls Card with Video Tutorial!

Welcome today at a new Stampin with Liz Design blog post! Hope you are all having a nice creative day! Today I'd like to share a fun Christmas Card with you that I've created with the amazing Deck the Howls stamp set with coordinating dies from My Favourite Things.

I wanted to create a see through window for this card. I diecutted a piece of white cardstock first with a Wonky Stitched Rectangle Die and then with the Jumbo Peek-a-Boo Circle die.

I then created a winter scene by blending a piece of white cardstock in three Distress ink colours, Mermaid Lagoon, Faded Jeans and Black Soot. After blending I added some white ink spatters to create a snow look. I used a bit of white paint for this technique which I thinned with a bit of water. Just use a brush and tip some spatters with it on to your paper.

I took this cute little Christmas dog as a focal point for my card, I just love this doggy stamp set! I coloured him with Copic Markers. Then I coloured some white cardstock with a Copic Marker in red, the same marker as I used for my dog, for the text. I stamped my text with Versamark ink and sprinkled it with white embossing powder. Then heat set the text with a heat tool for a nice textured feel. If you would like to see how this card came about, check the video below or watch on YouTube in HD!

I would like to send this card in to the sketch challenge over at Card Challenges from MFT! Will you enter as well? I always love a great sketch! Thanks for watching today, I hope I will see you soon!

Stampin with Liz Design: All is Bright - Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop!

Hi, welcome today at the November Artisan Blog Hop! Today me and my super talented friends of the Artisan Team would like to show you some amazing inspiration with products from the
All is Bright suite! You can start hopping by clicking on the next button at the end of this blog post!

I created three fun cards with this amazing suite and a cute gift box! This suite is just so versatile! I do love a great background, for my first two cards I created some fun watercolor winter scenes! I used Thick Whisper White Cardstock as a base for these cards with Watercolor Paper up front. I added different layers of colours. I love using plastic for this technique, it gives an amazing result. If you'd like to know how this technique works, you can watch a Video Tutorial here! I'd love for you to follow me on YouTube, I will post a few times a week if time will allow me. I used the gorgeous text that is stamped and diecutted as well from the amazing Merry Christmass to All bundle.

After finishing the watercolor part, I added some stamping with Versamark ink and embossing powder. I used a stamp from the Magical Mermaid stamp set to create snow. For the second card I used the string of light bulbs and stars from the Making Christmas Bright set. I added stitched borders on both cards using the stitched die from the Stitched Labels Framelits set in a playful way. The text I've used is also from the Making Christmas Bright set. I coloured a piece of Whisper White paper with Night of Navy and Bermuda Bay ink with a sponge, diecutted it with a Stitched Circle Framelits and then stamped and embossed the text. I used these colours for my background as well and also Highland Heather.

For my last card I used a base of Pool Party Cardstock. I stamped the string with lights on Whisper White Cardstock and coloured them with the Stampin Blends Markers. They are so much fun! If you take a good look at the photo you will see I stamped the fun circle from the set several times on my background, just lightly in Pool Party ink. The amazing tekst comes from the Merry Christmas to All set. Just a bright, happy Christmas card!

Have you seen the amazing Baker's Boxes? You can find them in the Autum/Winter catalog as well as the All is Bright suite. They are amazing gift boxes. Fill them with homemade cookies, candles or something else! I just stamped this fun box with the text stamp 'Merry'. On top of the box I adhered the tekst Christmas diecutted with the amazing Merry Christmas Thinlits Dies. Just close your box by using a piece of ribbon and adhere a tag! You can find the tag I used in the stamp set Merry Christmas to All.
