Stampin with Liz Design: CAS on Friday Challenges!

Hi everyone! Welcome to a new Stampin with Liz Design blog post! This Friday it's time again for a new challenge at Clean and Simple on Friday! Are you with us this challenge? Theme for this fun challenge is a colour challenge, the colours that are mentioned are colours from Stampin' Up, but of course you can use colours from other brands that resemble the colours mentioned below! Hope you will all compete, can't wait to see how you will use this colour panel! You have two weeks, you can use any product you'd like, but remember to keep your card CAS (clean and simple)! Hope to see you there!


For me colour challenges are the hardest, I have a bright imagination I guess, lol, and tend to think in a more wide-range, so have a tendency to start using more colours. So I had to restrain my self a bit, lol. I just layed the colours out on my desk and started thinking in possibilities! Hope you all like what I came up with! I just love colouring, so choose to use Copic Markers that ressemble the colour scheme below. Copics have a lot of colour numbers, so you can certainly pick ressembling one, just love these markers! They aren't the cheepest choice out there, I know, but they are so wearth it!

I then started thinking of an idea to use this colours and came up with this adorable boy in the rain having fun outside! I guess we all love the sun a bit more, but I most say I don't actually hate rain, might be the weird one out their, lol, but being an outside kinda girl, I do enjoy large puddels of rain, walking the dogs in the rain or just stamping in one together with one of our horses who loves puddles as well. Lol, I will save you the images, I guess it's the kid inside of me still! This adorable little stamp set is called Puddle Jumper and is from My Favorite Things!


For me creating a CAS card is all about keeping your card simple to look at, using a lot of white space. I used a white card base and then started creating a scene on a white front panel that I diecutted with a Wonky Stitched Rectangle Die, also from My Favorite Things. I so love stitched dies, they really make cardmaking so much more fun! I blended a piece of my background with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink to create a bit of a sky behind the adorable boy. I added some rain spatters on there with a white gell pen, you might have to look a bit closer to see on my photo, but they are there! I then stamped the text 'You Make Every Day Brighter' underneath my blended part. I then stamped te adorable little boy and a puddle on a piece of Solar White Neenah Cardstock. This paper is my absolute favorite to colour on with Copic Markers, it blends so well! I coloured the images according to colour scheme of the challenge. I added my front panel and then also my stamped images with dimensionals on to my card base! Hope you will all join, see you there!


Thank you so much for watching today, hope to see you next time!

Stampin with Liz Design: Create a Smile Best Bugs Card!

Hi everyone! Welcome to a new Stampin with Liz Design blog post! I'm really graving for spring, we are having a rainy, windy winter, so a bit of sun and less rain really sounds appealing, lol! So today I created a bit of a spring feeling on my card to get me through my winter blues! This card is created with the amazing Best Bugs stamp set from Create a Smile stamps!


I just love this fun stamp set from Create a Smile stamps, it contains just the cutest bugs ever! There are a few bees and ladybugs in this set, just the most adorable ones! I started this bright card with a white card base. I wanted to apply spring colours on my card and started blending my card base with Squeezed Lemonade, then Spun Sugar and then Worn Lipstick, all Distress Oxide ink colours from Ranger. These colours are gorgeous and bright and blend so easily. To make this background a bit more interesting, I added some pink spatters on to it. 


I diecutted a frame from white cardstock with a Stitched Scalloped Rectangle die and added two pieces of grass behind this frame. I blended pieces of white cardstock with Mowed Lawn and then diecutted these pieces with the Grassy Hills dies and made them a perfect fit to match the size of my frame. I added some green spatters on my grass, just love adding texture to my paper! Both the frame and the grass part I raised from my card base by using dimensionals, which gives it a nice depth! I then stamped the fun text 'Best Bugs, I love bee-ing with you' on to my card and started stamping the fun bugs and gorgeous little flowers from the set. I fussy cutted them and then gave them life by colouring them with Copic Markers. I also added these images with dimensionals on to my card base. Don't you just love these cuties? Hope it will bring you in a bit of a spring mood as well!


Thank you so much for watching today, hope to see you next time!

Stampin with Liz Design: Create a Smile Challenges!

Hi there fellow crafters! Today it is time for a new Create a Smile Challenge! Are you all ready for this fun challenge? Theme for this challenge is a fun moodboard! I hope you will all enter of course, can't wait to see your take on the moodboard! You can enter this challenge worldwide and have a chance at winning a € 25 gift certificate to spend at Create a Smile stamps! For those of you who don't own a Create a Smile stamp set yet, you can use one of the freebies that are up on their site!


I love a good moodboard, you can interpret it anyway your fantasy lets you! I'm sharing my take on the sketch with you today, hope you'll like it! I used the adorable stamp set Cart Full of Treasures for this card, there are the most adorable koala's in this set! I love it when a stamp set is very versatile, let me tell you, this one certainly is! You can change the content of your cart by using one of the four images that you will find in this set. I used the birthday koala, hiding in a gift box to create a birthday card, but you can also use the garden plants to make it a general card, just for you, or fourniture, to change it into a new home card! Or use the very adorable little party koala's that are also in this set! Amazing right?

Using a moodboard, you can use any idea that comes to mind. I really loved the blue wooden planks and the little chalkboard, so I tried using that idea on my own card. I also love the cute little bunny, lol, I would love to pet it, but don't try to use every single detail, I think it's best to stick to one or two things to make your card work! Just a tip, I sometimes think moodboards with a lot going on can be a bit overwhelming, just to make it easier!


I choose a white base card and started building my card up. I used a piece of white paper with wood grain printed over it. I used Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink to change the white colour into a light blue one. Don't be afraid to colour your patterned paper! I don't often change the colour, but every once in a while I do by blending it, to make it a better fit for my project! I then added a chalkboard, created from a light kraft paper and a black paper. I used rectangle dies to diecut my paper. To give my chalkboard a bit more of a chalk look, I rubbed my embossing buddy over the black paper to leave a bit of a white powder look. I added the text on my black paper, stamping it with Versamark ink, then using white embossing powder and heat setting this all with a heat tool. I then stamped the fun koala images and fussy cutted them. Fussy cutting can be so therapeutic! I coloured the images with Copic Markers. I added my chalkboard and stamped images with dimensionals on to my card! Fot those of you who are entering this fun challenge, have fun creating!


Thank you so much for watching today, hope to see you next time!

Stampin with Liz Design: My Favorite Things Magical Friends Card!

Hi there crafters! Welcome today at a new Stampin with Liz Design blog post! Today I'm sharing a fun card created with one of my favourite new stamp sets, the Magical Friends stamp set from My Favorite Things! I created a few fun cards with this set before, which you can find here and here! I just love the friendly dragons in this set and their adorable human friends!


I love movies with dragons, knights and a whole lot of fantasy, so this is a stamp set I really enjoy. There are a few different dragons in this set, all so friendly looking and a few adorable kids too. A little mini fantasy tale all together in a stamp set! There are also speech bubbles, a small castle, a diamond and a crown in this stamp set. You can let your fantasy go for sure with this amazing set, create your own fantasy tale! I kept my story simple today! It is all about a sweet little girl and her friendship with this gorgeous green dragon! I just can imagine watching a movie with them both in it, flying hi in the sky above the city!


I used a white card base for this card and used a front panel, on which I created a fun night scene with a dark blue sky, some clouds and the girl with her dragon friend flying over the city. I diecutted a piece of white cardstock with a Wonky Stitched Rectangle die, also from My Favorite Things, for sure on of my favorite dies! I blended this piece of paper with a dark blue colour, called Chipped Sapphire, a Distress Oxide ink from Ranger. To get a bit of a darker blue colour, I also added Night of Navy ink from Stampin' Up. I added some white paint spatters on to my background. I certainly love using spatters, just to make your background a bit more interesting. I use just a drop of white paint on a clear block, mix a waterdrop with this and then use a brush to spatter it with on to my card. I use a bo to spatter in to keep my crafting space clean, it does get a bit messy! I then added the clouds that I stamped on my panel and the block with houses, that I diecutted with the Our Town dies from My Favorite Things. I then stamped the dragon carrying his sweet friend and coloured these cuties with Copic Markers. I coloured a piece of white cardstock with a pink Copic Marker to stamp my tekst on. If you don't have matching cardstock to your card, create your own with a Copic colour! I let this dry a bit and then stamped the text "We Are Invincible Together' on this piece of paper with Versamark ink. I then sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat setted it with a heat tool. I added the cute image and the text with dimensionals on to my card! Just a cute story on a card, hope you'll enjoy!


Thank you so much for watching today, hope to see you next time!

Stampin with Liz Design: Jane's Doodles Wild Card!

Hi my crafty friends! Today I'm over at the Jane's Doodles blog with a new card! I can't get enough of her new stamp set Wild, which is so much fun! I created another card with this amazing stamp set, I just love these wild, but very adorable critters!

Hoi allemaal! Vandaag ben ik op Jane's Doodles blog te vinden met een nieuwe kaart! Ik kan zeker geen genoeg krijgen van haar nieuwe stempelset Wild, deze is zo leuk! Ik heb nog een kaartje met deze gave set gemaakt, heerlijk deze wilde, maar toch super schattige diertjes!


I used three of the fun critters from the set, stamped them, fussy cutted these cuties and then coloured them with Copic Markers. I created a fun scene around them, imagining where they will be living in the wild, it will be bright colours. I blended some cloud lines on my card base using Ranger Distress Oxide ink and a stencil.

Ik heb drie van de leuke diertjes uit de set gekozen, deze gestempeld, uitgeknipt en ingekleurd met Copic Markers. Ik heb een leuke scene rondom deze schattige diertjes gemaakt, waarbij ik gedacht heb aan felle kleuren in de omgeving waar deze wilde dieren leven. Ik heb een paar wolken lijntjes geblend op mijn kaartbasis met Ranger Distress Oxide inkt en een stencil. 


I then added a white frame to this card, where I placed grass and leaves behind. I raised this whole with dimensionals and added it to my card base. I stamped the text I'm Wild about You from the set on my gras part. Then I added the fun critters, balloons, leaves and grass from the set on to my card to finish this cutie up!

Ik heb een wit frame aangebracht op mijn kaart, waar ik gras en bladeren achter geplaatst heb. Ik heb dit geheel opgehoogd met dimensionals en op mijn kaart basis aangebracht. Ik heb de tekst I'm Wild about You gestempeld op het gras gedeelte. Hierna heb ik de diertjes, ballonnen, bladeren en gras uit de set aangebracht op mijn kaart om dit leukje geheel af te maken!
Thank you so much for watching today, hope to see you next time!

Bedankt voor het kijken, tot de volgende keer!
