Flamingo Pop Up Box Card


Hello, today I have a Pop Up Box Card to share with you that uses the Flingo The Flamingo stamp set by Hobby Art
I started by stamping the flamingo and leaves from the stamp set using Black Archival ink. I also cut some more foliage using a selection of dies from The Works. I then coloured these using Distress Oxides and a white gel pen. I then cut the images out. I added some 3D Pearl glue from Dovecraft onto some of the die cuts for berries and added a Googly Eye to the Flamingo.
The pop up box card was made using a die that came free with the Die Cutting Essentials Issue 51 Magazine. The decorative papers I used are also from The Works. The sentiment is from the Harbour stamp set, also by Hobby Art.
I then assembled the box and added the images and die cuts. I finished by adding some flower shaped sequins and some more 3D pearl Glue.
I hope you like this card and thanks for stopping by.

Happy Birthday Horse Shoe


Hello, today I have a card to share that uses this Horse stamp by Clarity Stamps, that I have had in my stash for years. I stamped the horse using 'London Fog' Memento Ink and coloured using Arteza Real Brush Pens and Arteza Expert Coloured Pencils. I also added white gel pen highlights and glossy accents for the eye. I then cut out the image, also cutting around the forelock, jaw and flowing section of the mane. I then shaped the image with a ball tool so that the image appears to be more 3D. I then added foam squares to the back, in various thicknesses to make the head, forelock and mane stand at different heights.
The horseshoe was cut using my Silhouette and heat embossed in Silver. The flowers were cut using a variety of flowers and leaves from the 'Funky Florals #2 and #3' by Tim Holtz. I coloured these using my Copic markers and a white gel pen.
The wood grain backing paper is from Craftwork Cards 'Potting Shed' paper pad and the green paper is from Tonic Studios. I finished with a sentiment and some small peals from my stash.
