Better than People

Hey Happy Monday!  It’s Amy here sharing a card duo that features Reading Buddies and Coffee Loving Critters.  I originally was only planning on doing the A2 sized one but spotted a scrap 4.25 x 4.25 inch coral cardstock base so decided to do a fun version.  First up is the A2 one:

I was super pleased when I could get that rabbit [Coffee Loving Critters] to perch on top of the stack of books [Reading Buddies].

I wanted to keep the overall design very clean + crisp.  The sentiment is perfect for what we are currently facing around the world and to keep the social distancing on topic.

I’m especially happy when I can design a postal friendly design…no bumps!

My second design is really just the same as my first but smaller 4.25×4.25 and a bit cheekier.

I combined sentiments from Reading Buddies and Coffee Loving Critters.

I love how fun this turned out.  It will be going to a coffee loving friend.

Stay well everyone!

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.

Thanks for stopping by.
Have an awesome day!

You Are So Sweet

Happy Monday! I was aiming to make an Easter card but when it came to the sentiment and trying to figure out how to create an Easter sentiment with non-Easter words, I scrapped that idea in favour of all-things-bunny.

I used the bundled up bunny from Warm Winter Wishes (also available at EH | SSS), the bookworm bunny from Reading Buddies (also available at EH | SSS), and both the coffee-loving and snacking bunnies from Coffee Loving Critters (also available at EH | SSS).

I coloured all of the bunnies with Copic markers, fussy cut them and set them aside to create the background. I used masking paper, life changing blending brushes, and abandoned coral and tumbled glass distress inks to create the ground and sky.

Then I stamped the sentiment from Coffee Loving Critters (also available at EH | SSS) with three shades of ink, adding a second heart to balance out the colours. To finish, I adhered the bunnies to the card base with three sizes of glue dots.

Reading Buddies + Critters

It’s Amy here with a card that combines Reading Buddies and Coffee Loving Critters.

The mint card base is 4.25 x 9.25 inches.  The Bristol panel is 4.0 x 9.0 inches.  I stenciled mint colored clouds on the Bristol panel and added a grassy border.

I stamped the images from both Reading Buddies and Coffee Loving Critters in copic friendly black ink.  I colored them with a ton of different copics but my overall color palette was inspired by THIS color trio.

Here are the various copic colors I used:

  • R20
  • YR09 | YR16
  • Y21 | YR23
  • BG11 | BG34
  • E40 | E42
  • E50 | E51
  • E55
  • T0 | T1
  • N5 | N7

I hope you have an amazing week!

Guest Designer: Noga Shefer

Hi crafty friends, I am so thrilled to guest designing today for the amazing Evelin T Designs! I am really excited about it.
I made a unique bookmark for this GD. My bookmark featuring Reading Buddies. This set is just perfect addition to your stash!

To make this bookmark, I die cut a piece of Bristol smooth using a bookmark die.
I masked off and created the border by blending spun sugar distress oxide ink.
Next, I stamped two greeting from Reading Buddies using black ink. As a final touch, I added 5 stars sequins.
I hope you enjoy the project I created and feel inspired to create!
Have a wonderful day!

Happy August everyone.. Annette Allen here with you today and I am sharing a card I created using Reading Buddies. If you love to read you will love this set.  

Evelin T. Designs: Reading Buddies stamp set  
This set is available in the online store HERE.

I created the background using Ranger Oxide inks: Fossilized Amber and Twisted Citron. I used a misc die to create these fun windows for each image. The images are colored with Copic Sketch markers and die cut with my Brother scan n cut machine. I used some foam adhesives to pop the windows up. I love to give my cards some dimension. Totally simple card to create.  Make sure to stop by again next week for more fun Reading Buddies inspiration from the design team.
