This was a pretty fun card to put together, but there’s definitely more coloring than normal!

Come on back on Friday, when I share a new video and a card I had running in my head for a couple weeks… but never had the time to put it together until now.

I created a half shaker card and used vellum… but once I was done, I wasn’t so sure about it and recreated it using acetate.

GSD- DIY Stencil & Masking Backgound

Hi all, I’m back to share another card using the Valentine Penguins. I really love this set, the penguins are just adorable!

This time, I’m using a super simple technique to create a unique background.

I started out using a heart punch that I had and punched a heart in a piece of paper. The negative space was perfect to color in hearts, using distress inks, directly to the card. Next, I used the punch and full adhesive post its to create masks. I masked off all the hearts I colored and used one of the masks and distress ink to create a negative heart space.

I think by using both the negative space from the punch and the actual image to mask, it creates a unique background. It’d be really hard to replicate.

Warning! This Set Contains Magic

I’m back to share a fun, magical card, using the Planner Street set,  “Warning: This Set Contains Magic”. I’m definitely bit of a girly girl who loves unicorns and glitter. Naturally, when I first saw this set, I just knew I had to combine the two!

In creating this card, I started by coloring and fussy cutting three of the images and heat embossing the sentiment onto my pink background. I chose a glitter cardstock for the frame. After all, there’s no such thing as TOO much glitter.

Inline image 2I wanted the unicorn to move around in the card but only in the middle of it. By using clear thread to hold the unicorn, you can’t really see it and it makes the unicorn look magical since it moves on it’s own in the middle of the card. I added foam tape around the card, which will be hidden by the glitter frame. The string will be sandwiched between the layers of foam tape.

Inline image 3Since I’m using pretty small glitter, I want to make sure the foam tape isn’t sticky so I made sure to use a powder tool around the frame. Once it was ready to go, I added sequins and glitter. As all crafters know, glitter is naturally clingy and gets everywhere. It still got everywhere but it wasn’t as bad as I anticipated.

Inline image 5I attached acetate to the frame and placed the frame on top of the foam tape. Once that was complete, i just needed to decorate the front with my remaining images. To make things easier, I used a Xyron sticker maker which adds adhesive to the back of my images, essentially creating a sticker.

Voila! This fun card has glitter and sequins shaking throughout AND the unicorn moves. It’s a super fun card, don’t you think?

Inline image 7Hope you all enjoyed this fun, glittery card! Until next time…

Pop Up Box with Bottom Panel

Hello everyone! I had made this pop up box awhile back and there were a lot of questions about how to go about doing it.

It’s actually a pretty simple card, especially now since there are pop up box dies out there. I, however, did it the old fashioned way and made mine from scratch. It’s actually bigger than the pop up box dies since those are A2 sized so it’s a really good card for a special person.It’s quite hard to explain how I created it since there’s a lot of steps, so I made a YouTube tutorial on the steps and all the measurements are listed at the end of this post.

The bottom window, which is the main feature, is one I cut out with an Xactoknife. Using acetate and a xyron sticker maker to adhere the images, it adds a special element to the card. The fish hang from the waves above and appear to be floating in the “aquarium”. Don’t you just love acetate?!

 I hope you all enjoy this card! It’s a really fun one. It has a lot of moving parts but if you pre-cut everything out first, and then assemble, it actually goes pretty quickly.

Planner Street – Fly High

Hello everyone! I’m so excited to be on the Planner Street design team. Even though I’m definitely more of a cardmaker, I love to using these planner stamps to create.

I just recently spent two weeks flying in and out of different cities/airports in Europe, so when I first saw the Fly High stamp set, it resonated with me and I knew I had to create something special with it.

With the Planner Street sets, they really push my imagination and I find that they are perfect for me to create scenic cards with them. This one had to be at an airport and when I think of airports, my mind immediately goes to moving walkways. They just make you feel like you’re walking so fast or help you out when you’re running late to catch a flight.

I drew out my scene. In this case, it was really easy. It’s just a few lines here and there using a pencil and a copic multiliner pen.

For the movable walkway, I wanted to add a 3d effect so one side of the walkway is drawn on but I used two strips of paper glued onto acetate to create the handrail and bottom portion, that will be raised by using foam tape.

01.JPG

I drew in the airport windows, which are huge and stamped in two planes. I masked them off and used distress ink to color the white spaces. For the walkway itself, I used Spectrum Noir markers.

02.JPG

I colored and fussy cut the girls. I expected only to use two images but once the card was almost done, I wanted to fill in the empty space with the little animals.

03.jpg

To take the card a step further, I wanted the girl to “move” on this walkway. I cut out a slider channel and she can now move!

04.jpg

I die-cut a frame and added foam tape to give the card dimension and also to allow the girl to move easily. I’m a big fan of interactive cards because I love surprising the recipient with something unexpected so hopefully you like this card. Isn’t this one super fun?

Spinning Card – More Than Pie

Hey everyone, today I’m using the More than Pie stamp set. I noticed the bear that wasn’t holding any pie and wanted to surround him with pies!

Using acetate, I created a spinner wheel for the pies to stick to and spin around the bear. For the bear to be in front, I had to create a stationary piece that the pies can move freely behind. That’s where foam tape comes in handy.

It’s a bit hard to explain in words, so I’m also including my YouTube Video Tutorial for it.

Regardless, I think the card comes out to be really cute and it’s an easy card made interactive by adding a brad to it. The acetate also makes it look like the pies are floating as long as you don’t look too closely.

Hopefully, you enjoyed this card and checked out the video to learn how to create one as well. Supplies are also listed below.

Thanks for visiting and I’m sure I’ll be back with another card for you guys soon.

Pure Imagination – Double Slider with Hidden Slider

Hello! This is my very first video so I’m a bit nervous but I’ve gotten quite a few questions on how to make this so I finally got around to sharing the details. A double slider card is one of my favorite types of card to make since it’s such a surprise for the recipient. Sweet Stamp Shop’s Pure Imagination stamp set really inspired me to spruce it up a little more!

It was much easier to create a video of the process than explain via words. I’m more of a visual learner anyway.

Hopefully, after you watch it, you’ll be inspired to create this kind of card. It truly is a card for someone special.

Mix and Matching Stamps

Sometimes, you just want to mix and match stamp sets and that’s what I did. I used three sets of Gerda Steiner stamps: Moody Unicorn, Hippo with Butterly, Hoppiness. They work really well together.

Since the main card is focused on the different animals, I wanted to use a background that was colorful and fun. I’ve been really enjoying playing with distress oxide inks lately. Even though I don’t have many of them, I love how I was able to use three of them (Worn Lipstick, Broken China, Fossilized Amber) to create six different colors, essentially the rainbow! I sprinkled a bit of water and picked it up with a paper towel. And if that wasn’t enough, I wanted to add a little pizzazz so I used the gold color from the Finetec watercolor palette and sprinkled it over the background. It’s a bit hard to pick up in the pictures but you can see how subtly pretty it makes the background. I’m in love!

I really loved how this card turned out and I hope you all enjoyed it too. Have a great day!!!
Supplies Used:

I wanted to do something fun, and I really just wanted to use every stamp in the set. The best part is that since the card is pretty flat, you don’t expect the piggies to move but they do! They float in the water!
