Details

Size:  Horizontal top fold A2 card and tag

Extra Details:  I began both of these by stamping and coloring the images. I stamped four dogs in total. I wanted to cut them apart and layer them together to make the dogs more dimensional. I used colored pencils to color everything. I fussy cut everything out right on the black stamped lines. I used a black marker to paint the edges to hide any cutting mistakes.

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.

Otterly Happy Birthday

January 15, 2018

I like to try and stretch my stamps and use them for all year round. The otters from Lawn Fawn and Simon Says Stamp’s A Christmas Like No Otter are too cute to only use once a year. This is a birthday card I made using that stamp set.

Extra Details:  I began this card by stamping and coloring the images from the stamp sets. I used colored pencils. When I was finished, I fussy cut the images out leaving a small white border.

I stamped a strip of brown paper with a wood grain pattern using white pigment ink. I used a stitched border die to add interest to the edges of this panel. I added that to the center of a white card base.

Next, I created a focal panel for my cute otter to live on. I die cut a few different shades of blue paper. I used a stitched rectangle die and a scalloped border die. I layered the three layers together and added the sentiments. Then, I adhered the kelp images to the corners. I adhered the focal panel to the card.

Pirate Birthday Tags

October 8, 2017

World Card Making Day was so much fun. I watched a ton of inspirational videos on YouTube and created a number of cards also. My kiddos have a birthday party to attend in a few weeks. The party has a pirate theme and is for a brother and sister. Each one of my kiddos made one card and they decided to make a tag with the left over images.

Details

Extra Details: We began these tags with the left over tags from the Simon Says Stamp September 2017 Monthly Card Kit. I die cut a larger stitched circle around the existing shapes. I ink blended some brown ink on each tag front and added some wood grain stamping with the same ink. I added a sentiment to the back of the tag at this point also.

We also had some images left over from the Pirate Birthday Cards, we had just finished. We used these on the tags, so everything will coordinate.

I ink blended some light blue ink on the inside of the tags to create a sky. I added two layers of blue card stock cut with a scalloped border die to look like waves. We added a ship on the inside of each tag as well.   I adhered some clear plastic over the window of each tag. We layered some foam tape on the inside of the card to create a shaker pocket. We added some light blue and clear sequins and closed the tags up.

My kiddos played with the placement of the rest of the images on the front and back of the tags. I adhered everything with liquid glue and set the tags aside to dry.

Lastly, I added some red and white twine through the holes. Now the tags are ready to tie on the gift bags.

Size:  A2 cards

Extra Details:  We began these cards by stamping a lot of images on a half sheet of water color paper. I used Versa Fine ink and clear heat embossing powder so that I could begin water coloring the images right away. I used Crayola Fine Line markers and a water brush to color all of the images. Once the images were dry, I fussy cut everything out, leaving a small white border.

The cards were assembled in very similar ways. Each kiddo chose a card base; light purple and light blue. We stamped some clouds with white pigment ink. We also added a few birds with black ink.

I die cut two sets of waves and a beach for each card. I used two shades of blue card stock and a scalloped border die for the waves. I used kraft card stock and a stitched hillside die for the beach. I layered the beach and waves together and adhered them to the card bases.

Next, the kiddos arranged all of their images on the card front. I used liquid glue to adhere everything down. Once dry, we stamped the sentiment on the outside and inside of the cards. There were a few images left over, so we adhered them to the inside of back of the cards.
