Pinata Slider

April 22, 2018

About two months ago, I watched a YouTube video in which someone made a card using a hillside border die to create a tree truck. What a brilliant idea! This is the card I made using the same idea. It is also a slider card.

Size:  Vertical top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began this card by stamping and coloring the piñata and candy images. I used Prismacolor pencils. I used the matching dies to cut everything out.

Next, I created the white card base. I knew I wanted to decorate the inside of the card, so I created the inside of the card first. I stamped the ending of the sentiment and the confetti pieces in a variety of inks that matched my coloring. I adhered the candy pieces with liquid glue and set the whole thing aside to dry.

While the inside of the card was drying, I worked on the slider panel for the front of the card. I die cut a stitched rectangle from some light blue, green, and Kraft card stocks. I used a simple stitched hill side border to create a tree trunk from the Kraft panel. I stamped it with a wood grain patter also. I used a grassy border to create two layers of grass form the green panel. I adhered the taller green grass layer to the light blue panel. Next, I adhered the Kraft tree trunk and then I adhered the last green grass layer. I stamped the sentiment.

Using a hole punch and kraft knife to create a slider track. It is not the smoothest cut but it works. I added some foam tape to the back of the panel, making sure to leave space around the slider track. I adhere some twine and a small foam dot to the back of the piñata. I pushed the foam dot through the slider track and adhered it to a dime. I added a scrap of light blue card stock behind the slider track to help it blend in. I adhered the other end of the twine to the top of the panel, making sure that the piñata can freely move along the track. Lastly, I adhered the panel to the card base.

Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details: I began this card by covering a white card base with some Lawn Fawn’s Really Rainbow paper. This paper inspired by color choices.

I die cut a stitched rectangle from some white card stock. I also die cut the numbers 1 and 0 from the rainbow paper. I added the outline images to the number die cuts.

I stamped the hands on opposite corners using Tattered Rose Distress Ink as it was ink that was closest to the skin color I needed. I used a variety of colored ink to fill I the nails. I added some pattern to the nails with a Sharpie Pen.

I adhered the stamped panel to the card base with foam tape. I glued the numbers down flat to the card.

I stamped and embossed the rest of the sentiment on black card stock. I trimmed them down to little strips and used foam tape to adhere them to the card.

I added a left over strip of patterned paper and another sentiment to the inside of the card.

Lastly, I added Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents to the nails and numbers.

Fingerprint Birtday

April 21, 2018

When I was using the Simon Says Stamp Fingerprint Doodles stamp set on another card, I thought of this design. This time I made it a birthday card, because you can never have enough birthday cards.

Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began this card with a white card base. Using my MISTI, I stamped a pattern of fingerprint on the card front. I used four different colors of ink; Lawn Fawn’s Butter, Peachy Keen, Moonstone, and Minty Fresh. I wanted the color placement to look random.

Once all the fingerprints were stamped, I added the animal outlines. I used Lawn Fawn’s Deep Sea ink for this.

I had a small cross stitched frame in my stash, so I used the Minty Fresh ink to color it to match the card. I stamped the fish and sentiment on a scrap of white car stock. I adhered the panel to the frame and popped everything up with foam tape.

Birthday Bookmarks

April 9, 2018

I just got the new Lawn Fawn bookmark stamp set called Slow Down and Enjoy. I couldn’t wait to make some bookmarks with it. I also needed four birthday cards soon. So I combined the two and created four cards with removable bookmarks.

Back of Bookmarks

Details

Size:  Vertical side fold A2 cards

Extra Details:  I made four cards but gave one away before I got the pictures taken. Each card is same design; I just switched papers and animals around.

I began these cards by stamping and coloring the animals, hats, gifts, and present images. I used Prismacolor Pencils to color everything in. I matched the colors of the accessories to the colors in the patterned papers. I used matching dies to cut the animals, gifts, and hats out. I fussy cut the cupcakes out leaving a small white border to match the die cuts.

While I had my die cut machine out, I also die cut two of each bookmark from one piece of pattern paper. I adhered the two bookmarks together so that the pattern on the front and back matched. I also cut the bookmarks from some white card stock. I stamped a sentiment on each white bookmark and trimmed it on the stitched lines with my scissors. I adhered the white panel to the front of each bookmark. I added the animal fronts and backs as well. I added a birthday hat to each animal for some color and fun.

Once the bookmarks were made, I began working on the cards. Using a stitched rectangle die, I cut two dark blue panels and two pink panels. I white heat embossed a frame and sentiment on each panel. I fussy cut out the center of each frame to create an opening.  I added a small rectangle of patterned paper to each of the four white card bases. I adhered the panels of to the card bases with foam tape. I made sure to line the opening of the frame up with the pattered paper on the card base. Now the bookmarks can slide in and out of the frame opening.

For the inside of the cards, I added a strip of the same pattern paper. I adhered three animals head along the strip of pattern paper. I added some accessories to each animal. I stamped the sentiment in six colors of ink that matched the patterned papers. I added the back of the animals to the back of the card.

To finish the cards, I added some twine to the bookmarks and a small star shape tag that tells the recipient that there is a bookmark.

I used the papers, stickers, and tags from Simon Says Stamp September 2017 card kit. I added a strip of patterned paper to a panel of pink card stock. I layered a blue glitter scalloped circle on top of that.   I added my focal circle next. I stamped the sentiment in a pink ink. Added a little bit of patterned paper to the bottom of the circle and adhered the dog. I adhered the focal circle to the glitter circle. To finish the card, I added a few enamel dots.

I used the shaker tag pieces from the card kit. I filled the shaker with some small pink plastic beads I had in my stash. I added some stamping and patterned paper to dress it up a bit. I adhered the dog and drew in a balloon string. Lastly, I added some blue and pink twine from my stash to finish the tag.
