Gel A Tins Stamps – Little Piggies

5 Apr
Hello everyone..
I am here with yet another cute card today.
I am using the set called:
When I make a card, I will often choose which image from which stamp set I want to use for my card/project.
With today’s card, I knew I wanted to use the piggies from the Pet Shop set.
So I started to look for different phrases for pigs and came up with nothing.
So then I decided to make my own background paper using the “This little piggie” poem.
I then mounted my piggies on the background paper and created a cute baby card.
I made the inside sentiment to go along with the theme.
I just think the piggies and the different shades of pink I used make a wonderful card!
My advice for today: Always look for the unexpected.
 With a little imagination you can make almost any stamp set you own fit into a certain theme you need!

Gel a tins Animal Magnetism

16 Feb

This card is just a fun, innocent card!

I just couldn’t help wanting to make this ANIMAL card, when I started working with this sweet little set.

The set is called:

Pet Shop

What I did was cut all my papers to size first.  I took the sheet of stamps and randomly out the whole set(minus the hearts) on one acrylic block.

I then stamped and embossed my background paper and added the hearts back in, in 2 different embossed colors.

Then a made my phrase in PSE and printed it out and put the card altogether.

Here is the inside of the card.

I just love how whimsical this came out.

Have you tried using multiple stamps from a set to create your own unique background paper?

I will be looking carefully at all my sets to see which ones I can use this same technique with.

I hope you have enjoyed my post today!

Gel-à-tins fun stuff!

29 Dec

I am soooooooooooo excited I can hardly stand it!

I have new  gel-à-tins to play with.

Today I am using the set called Pet Shop.

Here is a peak at the set.

Here are the basic steps I took to create my card.

First I stamped the pig from the set 3 times in a pink ink.

I knew that I wanted them raised, shiny and embossed, but I do not own a pink embossing powder.  So what I did, after I stamped them in pink I quickly stamped the pigs again with clear embossing ink and then I embosses them with clear embossing powder to get this look, below.

I then use the computer to create the phrase I wanted and then applied a path to the words to create a sense of movement.

Here is the finished product.

I was hoping to make it looks like the pigs were doing a flip, did it work?

Here is a side view to see the layers I created, I love the dimension when there are lots of layers in a card.

I just adored working with this set and can’t wait to show you more things with the new sets I have to play with!  Be sure to come back and see what set I use next time!

We’d love to hear from you.  Leave a link in your comment if you’d like!
