Let's get Lit - Shaker

The weather in Norway is pretty chilly lately and slowly it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas :) So, because we have looonnnggggg nights here, I will try and lit things up with this card I made, as a Guest DT for Beth Duff Designs. I used the Let's Get Lit stamp set. I tried to use as many elements from it so I decided to make a shaker card.
Steps: 1. Cut a 17 x 12.5 cm card base from a 260g/mp2 ivory cardstock. 2. Cut a piece of Bristol smooth paper of 16 x 11 cm and played a little with Distress inks - Oxide Fired Brick and Ink - Mustard Seed.  3. Stamped and embossed the sentiment using Gold embossing powder and added some lights with black ink. 4. Cut the shape of the window using a die from Tonic Studios. 5. Stamped and colored using Polychromos pencils, the reindeer, the tree and the ornaments. 6. Assembled everything together, added final touches using glitter and glossy accents ...

and this is the result!    Hope you'll like it! Happy Holidays everyone!

Let’s Get Lit–Reindeer Shaker Card

Hi everyone! It’s Sharon here and I’m super excited to be a guest designer for November.  Today I’m bringing you my Reindeer Shaker card using the new Let’s Get Lit stamp set by Beth Duff Designs.

I decided to create a shaker card with this cute set.  To start, I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut a hole in a piece of white cardstock.  I covered  the backside of the hole with some acetate to make a window.  Before continuing, I stamped the sentiment on the front while the piece was flat.  Next, I laid some foam tape around the edge of the circle to build a wall to hold my shaker pieces.  It’s very important to make sure that there are no gaps in the wall so that the shaker pieces do not escape.  I poured in some multi-colored sequins and tiny seed beads, making sure not to overfill it.  Once I finished adding all the pieces it was time to peel off the liner of the foam tape and place some designer paper over the hole.  I made sure to press it down securely so that none of the pieces woul…

May Your Holiday be Lit!

Hello Crafty Friends - Annie here with a cute holiday card featuring the New Release Set called Let's Get Lit.

I started by stamping and coloring the images. Then, fussy cutting them. I also cut by card front panel and card base. I also double stamped the sentiment onto white card stock and used stitched square die to cut it.

Now, that I have all the components ready for the card - I started putting some adhesive behind my pattern paper and images.
Now, I placed the plaid pattern paper towards the bottom of the red card stock card front. Then, I placed the sparkle pattern paper and now, I layered the green pattern paper on top of the pattern papers so to hide the seam.
Now, It's time to build the Christmas Tree. Then, I placed it onto the front panel. Next, I placed the deer by the tree. I used a string of light to attach the tree to the deer. 

Next, I layered the sentiment onto light green shimmer card stock. I add another string of lights. Adhered the card front onto the car…

Let's Get Lit

Hi, everyone! It's Lynnea! I hope you've seen the new release from Beth Duff Designs! Today I'm using the Let's Get Lit stamp set to create a couple of rustic masculine cards! Scroll to the bottom of this post to watch the video!

I stamped the reindeer image repeatedly across watercolor cardstock and embossed them with gold powder. Then I blended on some brown Distress Inks - Brushed Corduroy, Gathered Twigs, and Walnut stain using new to me blending brushes from Picket Fence Studios.

I had planned to keep this simple and just add some flicks of water, but I felt like the reindeer were getting lost - rather the gold embossing was getting lost, so I tried to fix it! I started by using some clean water and a brush and coloring over the images and using a paper towel to lift up the water. This lightens the area and makes it stand out from the background. For some added definition I used some dark brown watercolor to outline each reindeer.

I used a die from Concord & 9…

Adventures Abroad Continue to Italy

Hey guys, Rachel Winn here! I hope you've enjoyed the Beth Duff Designs Winter Release so far! I get to share the newest in the Adventures Abroad line, Italy. I absolutely adore this line, and this newest set is a fantastic addition.
I was shown a tutorial about for a card that was super 3D with floating floor. I started by creating the background using a brick stencil, distressed inks, and Tonic Expanding Mousse.  In the future I would cut it down to be smaller than the cardbase like a card front layer would normally be, but this was still a bit of trial and error for me!

The floor is cardstock cut to 4 1/4" x 6 1/4" and is scored at 3/8", 4 3/8", and 4 6/8". The short score ends up attaching to the back wall, while the longer end is used at the front of the card. I used a Pen Blade to cut small pieces out of the floor where I wanted my pieces to stand. 

I chose to use 4 pillars, 2 scooters, and of course, the chef! They were colored using Copic markers.…

All Yeti for....

Hi friends , Alina here today, Guest Designer for the month of November for Beth Duff Design sharing a spinner card featuring the amazing "All Yeti for...." stamp set from Beth Duff Design !

I started my card by creating a beautiful background using Neenah Paper , blending Lucky Clover green Distress Oxide on my paper with a blending tool and let it dry completely! After I took some Nuvo Glimmer Paste  Moonstone color and a spatula to help me spread the paste onto my background panel! I took also the "Radiating Rays" stencil from My Favorite Things and tape it down on my panel and then I added my paste but in a thin layer and let it dry!

Then I stamped my images on Neenah Paper Solar White 80 lb using Jet Black ink from Lawn Fawn and cut them out with my Scan n Cut machine ! I also die cut a round circle for my spinner mechanism .

Then I started coloring my Yeti image and also the little presents with some Green and Teal shades of Copic Markers : W 00, G07, R…

Winter Release Week - All Yeti For

Hey guys … so glad you are stopping by. It is winter release week at Beth Duff Designs. I have the pleasure of posting the first blog post of the week.

One new stamp sets by BDD; All Yeti For, is one of my favorites. I love the cute little creatures. Isn't he just the cutest? I started by applying Tim Holtz Distress ink to the background. I sponged it on with a dauber. I applied Blueprint Sketch on the corners and blended Tumbled Glass into the Blueprint Sketch. I heat embossed the sentiment onto the watercolor paper with Brutus Monroe Alabaster embossing powder. I finished the card off by cutting out my images with my Scan N Cut 2. I stacked a few presents into the little yeti's arms. Finished it off with a few snowflakes. What do you guys think? Isn't he just the cutest?
Once again here is the finished card. I hope you all enjoy this set as much as I do!
Until next time … Hugs and ink fingers! ~Nic~

Don't Believe in Humans

Hello! It's Lynnea and today I'm using the Don't Believe in Humans stamp set from Beth Duff Designs. When I saw the little piggy in this set I thought of her putting on her unicorn unitard and saving the world! I made a video tutorial for this card, so be sure to scroll to the bottom to watch!

I used the City Scene stencil from Altenew at the bottom of a piece of watercolor cardstock and blended on a rainbow of Distress Inks - Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Mermaid Lagoon, and Wilted Violet. Then I flipped over the stencil to the other side and blended on some Black Soot Distress Oxide ink to create a silhouette. It's not shown in the video - but I added some clear embossing powder over the the whole blended scene and the sentiment. It's something I do often so that I don't make smudges!

I stamped out my little super hero unicorn piggy and colored her with a mix of Copic and Spectrum Noir alcohol markers -

Unitard - Copic…

Friends Stick Together

Hi Everyone! I am so excited and honored to be a Guest Designer this month! So today I am bringing you this really cute and fun project called Friends Stick Together.

These adorable little guys are from a set called Stand Tall, Together. I stampsed these cuties out on xpressit cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them up using Copics. Then for the background I wanted to put them out in dryish grasslands. Yes I used to love Meerkat Manor when it was on. So I did the background also using Copics. Then I stamped the sentiment in Memento Rich Cocoa. Add a die for the border and some cute papers fromDoodlebug At The Zoo and there you have it!

Copics Used:
Sky: B0000, B000, B00, B01

Serenity is Peace BDD and Unity Collaboration

Hey, everyone! It's Lynnea and I have a video for the Beth Duff Designs YouTube channel today using two of the new collaboration stamp sets between Beth Duff Designs and Unity Stamp Co! Serenity is Peace and Peppermint Mocha are two of my favorite sets from the collaboration! I made a card using both of the sets and CASEd one of my cards that I made for the blog hop a few days ago! Scroll to the bottom for the video!

I used a new-to-me product for the background of this card - Nuvo Mousse! This product has been on the market for quite some time, but I'm a newbie! And I LOVE how versatile it is! I used the Aquamarine color and added some water to the mousse to add a blob of watercolor to a piece of watercolor cardstock. I love how shimmery and shiny it is! Super metallic! And it dries so quickly! I wanted my background to appear snowy, so I used the Falling Snow stencil from Simon Says Stamp and an ink blending foam with the Gunmetal Gray color of mousse.

I stamped the girl ima…
