The Little Things…

Happy August 10th everyone. Annette Allen here with you today and I am sharing a card that I created using Evelin T Designs: Life Is Beautiful stamp set. This set is full of pretty images and well every time I use it I want to use all of them but today I narrowed it down to two.

I created this background using alcohol inks and a Hero Arts background die. I colored these sweet images using Copic sketch makers and did a little fussy cutting. Then, I used foam adhesives to give a little dimension to my card. Finishing up with this fun sentiment that I heat embossed on some kraft card-stock. Notice I cut my strip at an angle, just something a little different.

This card was totally simple to create. Just a bit of coloring and piecing it together. I love simple cards, don’t you?

This Evelin T Designs: Life Is Beautiful stamp set is so fun color and create with. A must have if you ask me. Now it is time to shop. Check out all the fun stamps that Evelin T Designs has to offer HERE.

Thank you for joining me today.

Have an awesome day!

Best Times…

Happy July Evelin T Designs friends. Annette Allen here with you today and I am sharing a card that I created using the new Best Friends Fur-ever! stamp set.

This stamp set is so fun to color and create Happy cards.

I colored the images using Copic sketch markers and did a little fussy cutting so I can give the images some dimension. The background was created using some scraps that I had. I picked colors that I colored my images with so it all blended together. Sometimes I go a little wild, but I kept it all blending today.

Have fun creating with your Evelin T Designs stamps. I know you all are loving the new release. Make sure to tag using #EvelinTDesigns on FB and Instagram. It is always fun to see what you all are creating.

Narwhal HELLO…

Happy Monday Evelin T Designs friends. Annette Allen here with you on this fine Monday and I am sharing a card created using the newly released UNDER THE SEA: NARWHAL stamp set. Don’t you just love the new release?

I colored these adorable images with Copic Sketch markers. For the background I used a background created using Ranger alcohol inks and water. With a couple of fun die cuts I am ready to put my card together.

Piecing the card together is sometimes the fun part. I adhered the colorful background on my card base but first added some pretty designer paper on the sides. I wanted the pink to stand out just a bit more so this was my solution. Next I added these cute die cuts and finishing up with my colored images from the UNDER THE SEA: NARWHAL stamp set. I used foam adhesives to give it some dimension.

You can get your crafty hands on new release HERE. Make sure to check out all the inspiration from the sneak peeks we did at the beginning of the month.

Have a wonderful day.

Smell the Coffee….

Hello sweet Evelin T. Designs friends. Annette Allen here with you today and I am sharing a card created using Evelin T. Designs: Coffee Loving Critters and Evergreen Foliage stamp sets.

I used a stencil and Ranger oxide inks to create this fun background. You can really use any stencil you like to create a colorful filled background.

I stamped out these lovely leaves on some colorful card-stock. I fussy cut them and added them to my card using foam adhesives to give it a little dimension. Next I stamped this adorable cat drinking coffee and colored with Copic sketch markers. Finishing up with stamping the sentiment and cutting in half so I can add it on both sides of the image.

I added some Copic opaque, just because I love how it highlights the background a bit more.

That is all for today. Thanks for stopping by. Happy Evelin T. Designs stamping.

Wishing…

This set is so fun to color. I used Copic sketch markers and added a little white gel pen here and there.

Reading Love…

Happy March everyone… Annette Allen here with you today to share a little reading love.

Today I am sharing a card I created using Evelin T. Designs: Alpha Blocks and Reading Buddies.

I love how fun these stamps are to mix together. These Block Letters go perfect with this Reading Buddies set. Reading… letters… right? I was going to color the letters but ending up leaving them just because it really did remind me of reading. It’s like when you open a book and see all the words on white backing.

I also wanted to have one of the cute critters so I colored these adorable bear with Copic Sketch makers and added him to my card using Scotch foam adhesives to give him some dimension. Finishing up with stamping this fun sentiment.

Totally simple card to recreate with just a hint of coloring. I went with easter colors. I know it is not until April but I am in just that kind of mood. You could go wild with color on this card. Give it a try with any of Evelin T. Designs Stamps… Make sure to share them on social media and tag #evelintdesigns so we can see them.

Coffee Love…

Happy Hello Evelin T. Design friends… Annette Allen here with you today and I am getting crafty with Evelin T. Designs: Coffee Art, Coffee Loving Critters and Warm Winter Wishes stamp set. Mixing it all up today.

I am sharing two cards today, so lets get started.

This first card was created using the Coffee Art stamp set.

I created a colorful background using Altenew: Classy Stripes stencil and Amy Tangerine Actetate. I used Ranger Oxide inks: Spun Sugar, Scattered Straw, Tumbled Glass and Shaded Lilac. This fun image is colored with Copic sketch markers. I used some silver glitter paper to give it a little shine.

I used Scotch foam tape to give the image some dimension. I always like my cards to have a little pop. Foam tape is just fun…. don’t you think?

This next card was created using the Coffee Loving Critters and Warm Winter Wishes stamp sets.

The background was created using the same stencil and Ranger Oxide inks: Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio Picked Raspberry and Tumbled Glass. I went with a simple background but really oh so fun. I love stripes and well with all this color it is right up my alley.

The images are all colored with Copic Sketch markers and added to the card using Scotch foam adhesives.  More dimension….

Don’t you just love when you start to create a card and well you have more then one idea so you just go with it. So today I am sharing two cards just because these ice skaters are just too cute and fun to create with.

I stenciled the background and layered it with a sunburst die. The image is colored with Copic sketch markers. The image just comes to life with color… don’t you think?

I used some winter themed dies to create these fun backgrounds for these adorable ice skaters. Minimal coloring and and finishing up with stamping these fun sentiments. I added some dimension to the image and the sentiment using foam adhesives.    As you can see all the Evelin T. Designs stamps mixing very well together. So go crazy and have creating.

Christmas Fun…

Happy Hello Evelin T. Designs friends. Annette Allen here with you today and I am sharing a card I created using Warm Winter Wishes, All is Calm and Good Tidings to You stamp sets. Today I am mixing up all these fun stamps and they go so perfectly together. 

I colored these sweet images with Copic Sketch makers. The background was created using Ranger Oxide inks. But first I die cut a fun Christmas tree on masking tape. I wanted the tree to be bright in the background. 
I sprinkled a little green ink and water just on the tree and on the entire card I used Copic opaque. 

Some of the images I gave dimension and the rest I just glued directly onto my card base. Finishing up with stamping the sentiment. 
Another simple but fun card to create. yay for cute images… right?

Happy Evelin T. Designs crafting!

Season Greetings…

Welcome Evelin T. Designs friends… Annette Allen here with you today. I created a snow filled card for you today and I created it using Evelin T. Designs: Warm Winter Wishes, Fun In The Snow and Good Tidings to You stamp sets. 
All of these sets mix so well together. That is why you need them ALL. 

I created a Ranger Alcohol ink background. You might say that does not look like alcohol ink well it is I just used water with it to get this softer look. Takes a while to dry but so worth it. 
The images are colored with Copic Sketch markers and I fussy cut around them. If you look closely I used a star embossing folder. 

I used some of the fake snow that you can find at most craft stores. These little critters are having fun in the snow. It really does not shake like a shaker card but the snow is staying right where I want it too. Yay for Christmas/Winter cards… Right?
Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great day!
