Mitten Tag Card

January 25, 2018

I am finally getting back into the usual routine after the holidays. This card was inspired by three challenges this week.

Details

Size:  Vertical top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began this card with a 4.25 x 5.5 inch panel of grey cardstock. I stamped the solid diamonds in white pigment ink all over the panel. Once the ink was dry, I stamped the quilted lines in a darker grey ink.

I die cut a tag shape from some white card stock. I added the sentiment to the white tag using the same darker grey ink and some red ink.

I die cut the mittens from red card stock. I added some detail with the white and grey inks. As a finishing touch, I added a small white heart that I die cut.

I used some red and white twine to add a bow to the top of the tag. I adhered the tails of the bow to the mittens using regular scotch tape. I adhered one bow flat to the tag and the other with some foam tape.

Lastly, I added the tag to the grey panel and adhered everything to a white card base.

Jar of Conversation Hearts

January 14, 2018

These are the prototypes for the Valentines I want to make for my class. I have 30 to make in total so I have order the die to make the cutting much easier.

Details

Extra Details: I began these cards by folding a 5 inch strip of water color paper in half. I stamped the jar outline in Lawn Fawn’s Moonstone ink. I added the conversations hearts with Versa Fine ink and the saying in Hero Arts Red Royal ink. I used some more Lawn Fawn ink as water colors to add the colors to the heart.  On a separate piece of water color paper, I stamped the lids in Lawn Fawn Hippo ink. I used the same ink to water color in the lids.

Once everything was dry, I fussy cut the images out leaving a small white border. I made sure to leave the fold intact so the card would open. I used a liquid glue to adhere the lids to the card bases.

Using some light pink card stock, I die cut the heart shaped tiny tag. I stamped the sentiment in the same Red Royal ink. I used some red and white twine from my stash to tie the tag to my card.
I think these are so cute and they weren’t too time consuming to make. I can’t wait for my students to see them.

Extra Details: I began these tags by stamping the deer fronts and behinds on some smooth white card stock. I used colored pencils to color in the images. I used the matching dies to die cut everything out.

Inside of Card

Details

Size:  Horizontal side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began this card by cutting two 4.25 x 5.5 inch panels from some water color paper. One panel is for the front of the card; the other is for the inside.

I used a stitched hillside border to cut the front panel. From the top part of the panel, I also die cut some stitched circles. I used versa mark ink and white embossing powder to add stars or music notes. I used Distress Inks as water colors to create my night sky. The embossed resist worked beautifully.  I added a light blue was to the bottom of the panel for interest. Once dry, I adhered all of the pieces to a white card base.

For the inside panel, I used the Ellen Hudson Zipper Panel Die to create the hidden chamber. I adhered this panel to the inside of the card base.

On a scrap of water color paper, I stamped the penguins in Versa Fine ink and clear embossed them. I used the same Distress Inks to water color them in. Once dry, I fussy cut everything out leaving a small white border. I adhered the penguins to my card using liquid glue. I used a mini action wobble on the penguin playing the guitar.

Lastly, I added the sentiments and a few music notes in black ink.

Christmas Tags 3.16

December 3, 2017

It’s the time of year for Christmas tags! I used two different Christmas tree stamps for these tags. The stamps are from different companies, but have similar feels. I love the way they coordinate with each other.

003

Both types of tags

002

The Simon Says Stamp tags

001

The Lawn Fawn tags

Details

Extra Details: I began by cutting a full sheet of watercolor paper into six rectangles. I rounded the corners with a corner rounder. I stamped and clear embossed the trees and sentiments on each tag. I used Crayola Fine Line Markers and a water brush to add color to everything.

Lastly, I punched a hole in each tag and added some twine.

Christmas Tags 3.4

November 12, 2017

I am slightly obsessed with all of the new ink color I have just purchased. There are so many and they are all so pretty. To help decide which colors to use, I Googled “vintage Christmas fabric” to find the color scheme for these tags.

037

Details

Extra Details: I began these tags with a half sheet of white card stock. Using the MISTI, I created a pattern of the trees. Then I cut 5 tags from the half sheet of paper.

I also cut 5 smaller tags from some more white card stock. I stamped the tree again on the bottom of the small tag and added a small grey star. I also add in the sentiment in the same grey ink.

As I layered the tags together, I felt the top tag was too plain. I decided to add a re-enforcer that I stamped with the same tree stamp and ink color. I also dragged the edges of the smaller tag in the grey ink.

I think these tags turned out great.

Halloween Gift Bags

November 5, 2017

Oh man, October got busy fast. I made a few things, but I never found the time to post them. These are the treat bags I made for my son’s birthday party. It was Halloween themed.

100_7421

Details

Extra Details: I began with a store bought kraft gift bag. I added some stamping the bag itself. I used bats and candy corn.

I die cut the pumpkin tag in both orange and black. I added the face to the orange die cut. I also cut a green leaf. I stamped “Just for You” on the leaf. I layered everything together and tied the bags closed with some orange and white twine.

Cobweb Corners

Details

Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details: I started this card by die cutting the spiders and web from some light grey cardstock multiple times. I also cut the 4 webs from some velum.

Then, I created a black card base. I used some more black cardstock to create a frame for my card. I cut the same frame from some black fun foam. I adhered the cardstock frame to the fun foam frame.  I adhered a velum web to each corner of the frame.  I trimmed the webs on the bottom corners a bit.

To add the sentiment to the card base, I first laid the frame over the card front and lined up the sentiment. I used silver embossing powder to make the sentiment visible on the black cardstock.

I adhered the frame to the card base. I added the spider last. I was so excited to discover that the smaller spider with the thin thread fits behind the larger spider perfectly; no need to trim anything. I added the larger spider with a foam square and adhered the thread under the velum web. I gave the spider some red eyes and a red mouth.

For the inside of the card, I added a white liner. I adhered some grey webs and a small spider to the corners.

Leaf Wreath

September 24, 2017

The current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge is a Fall Inspiration Mood Board. I love the colors that were included on the mood board and had to make a card with them. In the end, I made two cards.

011

Both cards together

010

Deer Card

009

Bear Card

 

Details

Size:  Vertical side fold and a Horizontal top fold A2 cards

Extra Details:  I began these cards by die cutting a bunch of leaves from some white paper. I used both smooth white cardstock and water color paper as I was trying to use up some scraps. I used four Lawn Fawn inks to sponge some color onto the leaves. I used a Mini Ink Blending Tool and some brown ink to color all the edges of the leaves. I added some vein details with a line stamp and the same colors of ink.

I stamped the bows on another scrap of white cardstock and used a Mini Ink blending tool to add the color with Lawn Fawn ink in Peacock. I fussy cut the bows. Then I began to look in my stash for a sentiment thinking that I wanted something simple and classy. Then, I found the new For You Deer stamp set and went the cutesy route. I stamped the front of the bear and deer and ink blended Lawn Fawn Doe ink over both of them. I used some colored pencils to add a little bit of detail to each. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

Next, I die cut the largest scalloped circle from some velum. I stamped and gold heat embossed the sentiment on the velum. I used foam squares and glue dots to adhere the leaves around the edges of the velum circle to create a wreath. Once the leaves were adhered, I added the bows and critters.

I found a pack of embossed paper in my stash. I used a sheet of brown paper embossed with a wood grain pattern as a layer for my cards. I cut the embossed paper to 3.75” by 5.5” and layered it on cream card bases. I adhered the wreathes to the embossed paper and the cards were finished.
