Origami & Stamping | Lawn Fawn

Happy Sunday everyone! As a little kid, I always really enjoyed origami… whether it was folding cranes or folding up notes into hearts. It’s been an art, I’ve always enjoyed and today, I decided to mix it with stamping and cardmaking.

The basic origami shape I’m using is a boat for this card using Lawn Fawn’s Ahoy Matey stamp set. With a 3D card, there was an issue of the back of the image and alcohol ink bleeding, but I ended resolving it. You can see how in the video below.

I really ended up loving this card and how it ended up as a final product.

Here is the video for the card so you can see the process (and issues) behind the scenes of this card. Hope you have an amazing day!

Floating Floor Pop Up | GSD

Hey there! I’m sharing this Floating Floor Pop Up card today using Gerda Steiner Designs Go Wild stamp set. Going on a safari is on my bucket list, but I haven’t gone yet so I like the idea of creating a card to pretend I’ve been.

I have a video to describe my process and it does seem a bit overwhelming at first. I think once you have all the moving parts ready to go, it is pretty easy to put together.

As always, my supplies are listed below.

Pop Up Spinner Card | Sunny Studios

Happy Friday!

When I first saw this Sunny Studio stamp set, my  mind raced back to the pop up spinner card I did awhile back and I really wanted to redo that card using this set. It’s more or less the same card, but this time, I have a video for it to help anyone recreate the same card.

There’s quite a few steps to this card because I wanted to use three images, but using just one is just fine as well. The techniques involved is reverse stamping, pop up, and a spinner. It’s a three in one for this card! If you watch the video, you get the basic idea behind the card, and hopefully you can make a similar card as well!

Get Well Soon – Dancing Hippos

Someone close to me is recovering from a surgery and stuck at home resting for about two weeks. She was pretty concerned about the surgery and I wanted to send something to help brighten her day a little.

Ever since I saw the Clearly Besotted Trouble in a Tutu stamp set, I totally fell in love. Not only are those hippos incredibly adorable, they were DANCING?! And with interactive cards being so imaginative, I needed something to make those hippos come to life.

I’ve been meaning to do a pop up card for the longest time and kept contemplating the different dies that all companies have come out with, but I realized they didn’t always fit exactly what i wanted to do and with a craft knife/paper cutter, you can make it work. But making a pop up card wouldn’t necessary do the hippos justice, I literally wanted them to dance.

Here’s what I came up with:

When you open up this card, the hippos SPIN. The spinning element works as with all spinner cards, except you have to place the hippos perfectly so they don’t rub up against the back of the card, or it’ll disturb their spinning. But I’m so glad they  are twirling on stage since they are ballerinas. I’m in LOVE. The hippo in the front center (pink tutu) actually pops up as well so it looks like she’s in the air swirling her baton.

Hope you love it!
