A Sunny Studios Slothful Belated Birthday!

Hello my fellow crafters!
I have a simple and soft summery belated birthday card for you today using the new Sunny Studios Silly Sloths stamp set and Fluffy Clouds dies.

I love impactful cards that really don't take a lot of time and this one fits that perfectly!  To begin my slim line card I trimmed an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of thick white cardstock to create an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base.  With the leftover piece, I trimmed to fit a little smaller than the card front and die cut three stitched frames.

For the background, I inked some watercolor paper with tumbled glass oxide ink and then embossed with the fluffy clouds.  I then pop dotted the frame over the background.

I stamped the sloths, leaves, and flower with memento black ink, colored with copic markers, and fussy cut out.  I added them to each frame with pop dots.

For the final touches, I heat embossed the sentiments on kraft banners using black embossing powder.  I then die cut some fluffy clouds from thick white cardstock and pop dotted onto the front trimming the top cloud.

For my embellishments, I added nuvo drops in green and blue and some white sequins.

I am loving the new Sunny Studios summer sets and you can also check out all the top brands at the Kraftgali shop!

Thanks and I will see you next Thursday!


I Have So Mushroom in My Heart For You

Happy Monday crafty friends! 

This week I have a card to share using Lawn Fawn's Oh Gnome stamp set. I started this card out by stamping the largest mushroom on the front of my paper then masking it to stamp the other mushrooms on either side. I then masked the smaller mushrooms and stamped the flowers. 

If masking is new to you I just use a full sticky post-it not stamp the image onto it then fussy cut it out. I fussy cut out as close to the line as I can or even cut the line off. Lawn Fawn images are perfect for masking the lines are very thick and the images are easy to cut out perfect if you are new to masking.

After I stamped the mushrooms and flowers I stamped the adorable gnomes. I masked them off and worked on inking my background. After the inking was done my gnomes looked a little funny to me so I re-masked them and stamped the flowers along the inked grass line.

Another tip if you are masking after you are done masking keep those masks so you can use them on another project! I just stick them to the acetate that the stamps are stored on.   

After I colored all of the images in using alcohol markers I die cut a rectangle with a circle out of the middle to frame my scene. I adhered the red cardstock over the scene using foam tape to add some dimension to the card. 

I stamped part of the sentiment "i have so MUSHROOM" on top of the circle and the other half "in my heart for you" under the circle. I heat set it with white embossing powder. The sentiment stamps are straight so to get a curve from them I used a piece of acetate over my project to shape the stamp then closed my stamp positioner and it picked the stamp up in the curve I wanted. 

Thanks for stopping by today.

Make sure and check out the shop for the sale going on now!

 I hope you have a great week!

Flamazing News!

Welcome back crafters!
Today I am sharing a bright and fun welcome baby card using the new Sunny Studio's Fabulous Flamingos stamp set and Fabulous Flamingos coordinating dies along with Avery Elle's Market Stand stamp set and Stuck on You stamp set

I started my card with a 5 x 6 1/2 card base and die cut a stitched piece of watercolor paper and then inked using a sunray stencil with mustard seed and squeezed lemonade oxide inks.  I then embossed and die cut the clouds using Sunny Studios Fluffy Clouds dies directly onto the background and from thick white cardstock. 

Next, I die cut three strips of grass gluing the darkest green down over the sun ray. 

I stamped all the images from Sunny Studios Fabulous Flamingo stamp set, and Avery Elle's Market Stand stamp set and Stuck on You stamp set using memento black ink, colored copic markers, and cut the flamingos and leaves using the Fabulous Flamingos coordinating dies and market stand dies. 

To put the card together, I layered all of the images with pop dots in varying heights for dimensions to create a fun and bright scene.

I added the sentiments on the market stand and on the banner.  For my final touches, I added sequins in green and yellow.

I have been enjoying creating bright and summery cards lately!  If you make some, please share them with us at Kraftgali Fan Club on Facebook!

From The Whole Herd

Hi Crafty Friends! 

Do you ever have a card all set in your head the way you plan on making it and nothing goes right? Well this was one of those cards for me. 

For the card I have to share this Monday I used Lawn Fawn's Hay There stamp set! 

I knew when I started making this card I wanted the animals from the stamp set to be next to each other. I started by stamping the chicken in the front center and masked him off and stamped the goat and pig on either side of him then masked them to stamp the cow and horse.

My plan was to mask the cow and horse and in the background but ended up not liking the background. So after all of the background was inked and I die cut it out I didn't like it at all so I fussy cut the animals out. 

I put foam tape onto the back of the animals and attached to a background and then attached the background to pattern paper with foam tape but didn't like the look of it. This card was not coming together the way I had it pictured at all. But since I had used foam tape I couldn't pull it apart so I ended up fussy cutting the animals out again. 

I really wanted the animals to pop so in the end I adhered them to a very simple pattern paper background matted onto a busy pattern paper. I stamped the sentiment onto black cardstock and heat set it with white embossing powder.  

Thanks for stopping by have a great week!

Summertime with Sunny Studios!

Hello to all you crafty friends!
I am so excited to share this fun slim line card I created using tons of the new Sunny Studios product at Kraftgali!  I am in LOVE with the new Sunny Studios release and knew I had to use all of them on one card!

Ohhh, how cute they are!!!  To begin my slim line card, I created the card base by trimming an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of thick white cardstock to 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base.  Next, I trimmed thick watercolor paper to fit a little smaller than the card base front and inked with squeezed lemonade, spun sugar, and worn lipstick oxide inks on the top half of the watercolor paper.  I then embossed with the amazing cloud dies (you get a set of embossing clouds & a set of die cut clouds!) directly onto the inked paper.

I also die cut some more watercolor papers with hill dies for the sand and wave dies for the water.  I inked the sand with antique linen and then added sand dots with copic markers and inked the water with salty ocean and mermaid lagoon oxide inks. 

I stamped the sloth and leaves, the flamingos, leaves, and flowers, and fishes and plants with memento black ink, used the coordinating fish dies and coordinating flamingo dies.  I colored all the images with copic markers. 

To put the card together, I added the sloth to the top with pop dots.  I then glued the one sand down and pop dotted the other adding the flamingos and accessories at varying heights.  Next, I pop dotted the water adding the fishes and plants varying the depth also.

To finish the card, I added some die cut clouds from thick white cardstock and stamped the sentiment on a trimmed banner.  I also added highlights to the stamped images with a white pen.  I then simply added nuvo drops yellow, pink, and clear as my embellishments.

I sooo love the summer bright colors and that you will share your vibrant creations with us on the Kraftgali Fan Club on FB!

Thank you for stopping by and will see you all next Thursday with another creation using these fabulous Sunny Studios new sets!


Friends Couch Stamp Card

Happy Monday!

This Monday I have a card to share using Ink Roads The one with all the stamps set. Friends is my favorite show ever. I have seen every episode multiple times. 

This card was fun to make and came together fairly fast.  The most time consuming part was stamping the sentiment over and over on the background paper.  

I stamped the sentiment all over in a light brow then once in a dark brown to help it stand out. "i'm not great at the advice CAN I INTEREST YOU IN A SARCASTIC COMMENT?" 

I stamped the couch and coffee cup onto smooth white card stock in Memento ink and colored them in with alcohol markers. I then fussy cut them out. 

I matted the background paper onto orange cardstock to match the couch. I adhered the couch and coffee cup to the Kraft cardstock with foam tape for some dimension. I then adhered the whole panel to a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" card base. 

Have a great week!

Avery Elle Graduation Card

Hello Crafty Friends!

My son will be graduating high school this month and I came up with the perfect fun card using his high school colors!  The cluster of critters from the Avery Elle All of Us stamp set was the perfect group for the graduates!

To begin my card I created a5 x 6.5 card base using thick white cardstock.  I then die cut a stitched frame from gold foil paper and trimmed some watercolor paper to fit behind and inked with barn door. 

I stamped all the images from Avery Elle's All of Us and Party Pals stamp sets, colored with copic markers, and fussy cut out.  I then glued the two bottom rows of puppies to the frame and then pop dotted the other two to the frame.  Next, I adhered to the inked paper with pop dots and glued to the center of the card. 

I then die cut the graduation caps and the celebrate from black velvet paper on my cameo silhouette and glued to the card.  I adhered the YAY banner, the congrats sign, and congrats bubble with pop dots.  For the final embellishment I added the black nuvo drops.

Please check out all the product in the Kraftgali store, including the Avery Elle products
Once you create using the new product you get, please share with us at Kraftgali Fan Club on Facebook!

Thanks for visiting and if you are looking for a graduation card, I hope this helps you to create your own!


You're The Avocado To My Toast Picture Changer Card

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend. 

This weekend I played with Lawn Fawn's  Magic Picture Changer and Lets Toast stamp set. Lawn Fawn's Magic picture changer die set has so many possibilities. I will be playing with that die set so many times. 

I started with an avocado on the front and used the sentiment "YOU'RE THE AVOCADO TO MY TOAST" 

When you pull the tab up you see the avocado with a piece of toast. I then stamped a few hearts on the bottom left corner. 

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you have a great week!


Hey everyone!  Welcome to another Saturday craftday with Kraftgali!  Today's project features some really fun techniques but the highlight of our card is the Lawn Fawn Manatee-riffic Set.  This stamp set is a great price point and you get lots of great images and sentiments.  We will be making a focal point on the card front, with ink blending and some stenciling using the Lawn Fawn wave dies that we cut down to use as masks.  After we get the background just the way we like it, it's time to pull out those alcohol markers (or your medium of choice) to color in our cute little manatees.  Although I'm sure they are not so little in real life.  Then we just put our card together and finish it off with some Ranger Glossy Accents to get that bubble affect for some added interest.  I hope you give this a try or put your own spin on it!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Toot Your Horn, Lawn Fawn Style!

Welcome back friends!
I have really been on a Lawn Fawn kick lately, and so today I am bringing you a double slider!
For this card, I used the critter concert and village shops stamp sets.

Lawn Fawn products are perfect for rainbow coloring and I used rainbow colors for the shops!  I started my card by creating a 5 x 6.5 card base from thick white cardstock.  I then die cut the yellow pattern paper using a stitched rectangle and glued to the center of the card.  Next, I stamped the sentiment in black ink.

I stamped all the images from the Lawn Fawn critter concert and Lawn Fawn village shops stamp sets, colored with copic markers, and then fussy cut out, but the Kraftgali shop has the critter concert's coordinating dies to make life easier!

For the double slider pieces I used pattern papers from the Lawn Fawn really rainbow paper pad for my sky and grass and black thick cardstock for the road.  I heat embossed the sentiments with white on the bottom of each pull out and on the tabs.

For assembly of the double slider I followed the detailed instructions video

On the left side, I added the shops in red, orange and yellow with the cute bench, the racoon and cloud

For the right side, to continue the rainbow coloring, I added the shops in green, blue, and purple with the bicycle, owl and cloud
For the center, I glued down the rainbow shops, and pop dotted the signs in between.  Next, I stamped the sentiment in black ink on white cardstock and pop dotted along the bottom.  I then pop dotted the rest of the concert critters and a few more clouds.

Loving the bright and fun colors in this playful birthday card, and I hope you try a rainbow themed card too!  Please share your creations with us on the Kraftgali Fan Club Facebook group!
And don't forget the HUGE sale going on in the Kraftgali store, 30% off most product, that is a great deal on lots of the top stamp companies!

Have a fabulous week and will see you all next Thursday!
