Happy Monday! I hope you all found some time to relax this weekend. It’s definitely something we don’t get enough of and today’s card is here to remind you of that. I made this for a friend who’s about to file for divorce. Yes, in the middle of a pandemic, so it’s a good reminder to us all that other people have much heavier burdens than we do and we should count our blessings.
Here, I’m featuring the Life is Beautiful stamp set which is filled with sweet plants, room decor and a meditating girl who’s one of my most favourite Evelin T Designs images ever. Next, I created the room setting first, stamping all the paintings and little tables of succulents. Then, I water-coloured all the images with distress inks and fussy cut the two friends and popped them up on the card.
To finish, I masked off the wall and ink blended a floor and adhered some iridescent butterfly sequins to embellish the card and add some shimmer.

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?

And now let’s see the stamps in action!
I’ve been wanting to illustrate a Munster set (yes, I call them munsters instead) ever since I started Evelin T Designs. Actually, there are so many things that I want to illustrate and get made into stamp sets so… haha… Anyway, this set will also coordinate with our Reading Buddies set to create many different scenes, so if you already have that set, it will be just that much more fun to create with!
To create my card, I stamped the munster and background bush image onto Bristol smooth paper. This paper takes light washes of watercolor. I used Fineline Masking Fluid Pen to mask the images before I applied a light wash of watercolor for the sky and grass area. After the watercolor is fully dried, I peeled the masking fluid off using an eraser (you can also just rub it off using your fingers). Then I watercolored the munster and background bush. I stamped the little girl on a separate paper and fussy-cut it after I watercolored the image and added colored pencils to highlight the image. I also used colored pencils to highlight all the images stamped. I stamped the sentiments on white cardstock and cut them into banner shapes and adhered them onto the watercolored image with some foam tape. Finally, I added some dots onto the sky with a white gel pen.
This card I created is inspired by the sentiment that I chose. I believe that all things grow with Love and that the world can be a kinder, more encouraging place to be if we just have a little more love in our heart and in our speech. Speaking words of encouragement helps grow a person, make them feel valued and have more confidence in themselves and I believe that to be important regardless if the other person is a child or an adult. From those thoughts, I imagined a plant being watered and rainbow shining out from it. I stamped the plant images onto my base cardstock and colored them with colored pencils. The watering can, I stamped, colored and fussy cut. Next, I die-cut the window panel and stamped the sentiment on it. I positioned it where I will be coloring the rainbow in. Then I placed the base cardstock and the panel together and colored the rainbow.
I popped the panel up with thin foam tape just to create a little dimension. The watering can is popped up with foam tape too. As a final touch, I added faux stitching with a grey colored pencil and adhered some rhinestones on the card.
