Birthday Wishes From The Whole Herd

Hi there! Lexa here today with a card that featuring the ultimate cuteness from Barnyard Buddies stamp and it's coordinating dies. When you can't choose which one is your favorite from the herd, use them all! 

First, I stamp all the images with Versafine black ink and then watercolor them using Distress Markers. They look more adorable after they are colored. Don't you think so? I die cut all of them with the coordinating dies and they are ready to jump into the scene. I blend Tumbled Glass and Peacock Feather Distress Inks for the sky. The whole herd is here, but someone is missing...oh I found the fluffy sheep from Missing Ewe. And they are a full team at last. I complete my scene using couple of trees from Happy Home, I think they are a perfect size so they look like planted behind the hills and the barn house. To match the barn, I white embossed my sentiment on a strip of red cardstock. I also do a custom sentiment by combining "birthday wishes" from Heartfelt Wishes stamp set and "from the whole herd" from Barnyard Buddies. I adhere all the animals with different height of foam tapes to create dimensions.


I adhere a pair of googly eyes for the horse and the cow, they look so cute! Which one is yout favorite animal from the whole herd? :)
Thank you so much for visitting today, I really hope you like my card as much as I do. Have a incredibly wonderful Friday!

Paw Prints In Our Heart

Hello everyone! Lexa here today with a card staring Pet Symphaty stamp and it's coordinating dies. Don't you think that this set is the sweetest? Absolutely perfect for both cat and dog lovers.


I stamp all the images with Versafine black ink and watercolor them using Distress Markers, after I finished with the coloring I die cut all of them using the coordinating dies. The best part is pop them out and see the fine white borders around them. I add white dots on the dog's bed with white gel pen. The card size is a standart 4.25"x5.5". I white embossed the sentiment on a strip of red cardstock and stamp lots of cute paws with red ink to create the background. I just looove them!
I feel it's a little bit empty on the top of my card so I stamped some stitched clouds from Little Angels stamp and die cut them. It looks like a "heaven" somehow..don't you think so? Last touch is to add some clear sparkling sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.


That's all for today, thank you so much for stopping by. I really hope you like today's card. Have a wonderful crafty day!

Welcome Sweet Baby

Hello everyone! Today I'm going to share a card with another brand new release from Sunny Studio, Cute As A Button stamp and the coordinating dies. As soon I saw this set I knew it right awat that it will look adorable together with Baby Bear stamp. So here I am with the card that combine both sets.


I stamp a lot of button stamps in blue, yellow and green with the help of my stamping tool. After I finished, I die cut all the buttons with the coordinating dies. You know what's the best about the dies? They don't leave any white borders like other dies usually do, they even created the button holes for the bigger one. So it looks more real after I poped them out from the dies. They are adorrrable! 
The images from Baby Bear are stamped with Versafine black ink and watercolored using Distress Markers. The baby bear and all his accesories are just adorable inside the button frame. I blended Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink on the bottom of rectangle panel so the bear won't look like floating. The sentiment is stamped on a strip of fishtail banner and adhered on the middle. The baby blue polkadots patterned paper is the perfect one for the cardbase, don't you think so?


Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you like today's card...have an amazing day everyone!

Peace, Love & Joy

Hello everyone! Today I'm going to share my one last card for Neat & Tangled. It's been an amazing month to guest designing for them. I got this Little Angel stamp for a long time, but this is actually my first time to use it on a card. And now I remembered why I bought this one. LOL I mean look how adorable she is!


I create a background using Graduated Stripes Cover Plate Die which is effortlessly gorgeous for any cards. I layered it on top of  blended cardbase. I blended some Distress Inks (Shaded Lilac, Worn Lipstick, Wild Honey) to create a gradation and splats some water after that. A strip of vellum looks like a heavenly light from above, I adhere the little angel with some foam tapes to add dimension. 


I heat embossed the sentiment with some gold embossing powder and it glows prettily. I just can't get enough with embossing, the way it melts is just mesmirizing...don't you think so?


Thank you oh-so-much once again for inviting me to be this month guest designer. I really hope it won't be the last time. And thank you for all loves and support from all of you. I hope you like my card as much as I do...have a wonderful day!


From Owl Of Us

Hello everyone! Lexa here today with a card featuring some of brand spankin new release stamps from Sunny Studio. I bet you are all giddy up seeing all the inspiration cards that Mendi made, she's amazing I know.



One of my favorite from the release is Happy Owl-o-weeen stamp set, he can be anything..yes, anything! Lots of cute possibilities to dress up this owl into. This time he dressed up as a bee. He's adorable beyond words. And don't forget one more awesome set, Quilted Hexagons, as for this card I created a patterned beehive using this stamp set. I must say it looks beautiful and I can't wait to try another style with this, some colorful patterns will look gorgeous too.
I stamped the hexagons with some help from stamping tool, it really help me to keep them straight and neat. Then I stamped some patterns with three different yellow inks. Two little bees are there to accompany the owl-bee, they are from Backyard Bugs and Sunny Sentiment. In case you didn't realize that the bee from each set are identically the same and facing each other.



I stamped the "birthday" from Quilted Hexagons and fussy cut them, then customized the sentiment paired along with "from owl of us". On this closer picture you can see that I layered a vellum behind the main image, it helps the owl-bee to stands out more.
Thank you so much for stopping by today, I hope you like my card and have an amazing day!

Neat & Tangled : Sprinkle On My Donut

Hello everyone! Lexa here today to share a lovey dovey card with adorable images from Say Yes To Donuts stamp set. I choose two donuts with a boy and a girl peeking, aren't they the cutest?


I stamped all my images with black Versafine ink and watercolor them all using Distress Markers. I picked some of matching patterned papers and play with layout for today. I personally think these pink and brown color combination goes really well with the theme, sweet! I die cut Heart of Gold dies in the middle trhough the card base, so it created a heart shapped hole.
Inside the card, I layered the outline of geometrical heart on top of the same pink cardstock I used on the fishtail banner. I white embossed the sentiment in a piece of vellum and adhere it with some glossy accent on top of the heart. That's how I add some textures and dimensions to this card.


To finish my card I add some of pretty pink sequins in various sizes. I really hope you like today's card and inspiration. I will see you next week. Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you all have an amazing day!

Guest Designing for Neat & Tangled

Hello crafty friends! I hope you guys are doing great today. Today I'm going to share one big news that I received an opportunity to be a guest design for Neat & Tangled. Yay! I've been theier fans for a while, so when I got an email few months ago about this..I was going crazy. Haha. I'm so thrilled and honored to take part on this. So, thank you so much for having me this month. :)

 I always love dinosaurs. When I first saw all the adorable images from Prehistoric stamp set...I'm in love! So I decided to use all the images and seperate them on two cards. On my first card I use watercolor patterned papers for the background. I like how versatile this stamp set is, I make a baby card for the first one by combining the sentiment from Itty Bitty Welcoming Committee.


Momma dinosaur has two babies, one who's hanging around her neck and other one is just hatched. How cute is that! I also add googly eyes for extra fun. And don't forget to add some pretty sequins. I think the watercolor background match well with all the watercolored images. The trees are there to complete the scene, they are from Lumberjack Love.


I created a birthday card for the second one, the main images still come from Prehistoric stamp set but the 'celebrate' sentiment is from the older stamp set called Celebrate. I white embossed the sentiment and then blend some Distress Inks in Peacock Feather, Squeezed Lemonade and Wild Honey then flicked some water on the background to create some faded spots. Don't you think the bold words match the one in a speech bubble pretty well?


I really enjoy watercoloring all the cute images, it makes me happy. I also add a party hat to match the birthday theme on this one.  It comes from Big Top Birthday, the size is perfect for this little girl. I use yellow Nuvo Drops for the enamels to add some textures and dimensions.


I hope you like my cards for today and thank you so much for stopping by today. I'll see you next week...have an amazing day!
