Keep Calm and Be Hoppy

April 21, 2018

I made this card for my co teacher. We were having a rough week at school and I felt she could use a pick me up. This is also the first card I made with the Pivot Pop Up die. I really love this die. It is easy to use and makes a really big impact.

Details

Size:  Vertical top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began this card with a top fold white card base. Using grey ink, I stamped a wood grain pattern on the front and inside of the card.

Next, I die cut the Pivot Pop Up Die Pieces. I also die cut some cross stitched rectangles. I used these rectangles to create the pieces for the front focal panel. I used two shades of blue card stock and some green card stock. Using double sided tape I adhered all of the pieces together to create my scenes for both the front and side of the card.  I used the same double sided tape to adhere the scenes to the card base

I stamped the sentiments on my card. My black ink pad is very dry and it shows. However, I did not use my Misti so I went with the distressed look.

I stamped the images from Toadally Awesome on some white card stock. I used Prismacolor pencils to color everything in. I fussy cut out tall of the images leaving a small white border.  Lastly, I adhered all of the images to the two scenes and the card was finished

Christmas Peek a Boo Card Set

April 8, 2018

I am still working on the Christmas Card Collection for my grandmother. This is the latest set I made for her. In the end, I made four cards, but I only photo graphed two.

Details

Size:  Vertical side fold A2 cards

Extra Details:  I began these cards by stamping and coloring all the images on some white card stock. I used Prismacolor Pencils to color in the images. For the pine needles, I used a mini ink blending tool and the same cool ink to color the paper. I used the dies for the deer and the polar bears, but I fussy cut out everything else.

I used a gingham backdrops stamp and black ink to stamp the red panels for the front of each card. I die each red panel with a stitched rectangle die and created the opening with a stitched circle die. I used the same circle die to create the openings in some black card bases.

I adhered the red panel to each card base. Then I adhered the pine needles around the circle opening to look like wreath. Once the pine needles were dry, I added the critter peeking through the card.

I created white panels for the inside of each card. I stamped a sentiment in red ink and adhered the colored images to complete the scene.

Lastly, I added the sentiment banner. I die cut each banner from some white card stock and added the sentiment.  I scored the banner twice on each side and folded the ends under to create some dimension. I used foam dots and liquid glue to adhere the banners.

Mom’s Picture Wall Card Set

April 8, 2018

I know I am a bit early for Mother’s Day, but I had an idea and had to run with it. I made a set of mother’s day cards. I plan on sending them to all the mothers in my life; mom, mom in law, grandmothers, aunts, and friends. I used a variety of critters so that each mom in my life can have one of her favorite critters.

Card 12

Details

Size:  A2 cards

Extra Details: I began each card by creating the colored panel for each card. I used three different card stocks and inks. I stamped the frames in a matching ink to achieve a tone on tone look. I colored the frame in with a white colored pencil for some interest. I used a grey pencil on one of the panels as an experiment. I didn’t like the way it looked, so I stuck to white for the rest of the panels.

I stamped one of the larger frames 12 times on some white card stock and filled each with some critters. I used colored pencils to color all the scenes in. I fussy cut each scene out and glued it to the colored panel. I did the same with a smaller frames and the sentiment.

Using the coordinating inks, I added some simple scenes to the frames on each panel. I felt that this helped to make the card for interesting to look at.

I decided my cards needed some dimension, so I stamped the larger frames on some scraps of the colored card stock with the matching inks. I fussy cut the frames out; making sure to cut out the inside as well. I adhered these to the colored panels with some foam squares.  I mixed the colors up for interest.  I did the same for the smaller frames that hold the sentiments.

I stamped and fussy cut the bows that I adhered to the heads of the larger critter form the same colors of cardstock.

I adhered each panel to a white card base. Using the ink that matching the color of the panel, I stamped a sentiment and a small critter on the inside of the card. I love this detail.

Flower Thanks Card Set

April 8, 2018

I needed some Thank You cards, so I created this set.  It was fun pulling out an older stamp set I haven’t used in a while.

30442828_10209865507109030_7895708765607952384_n

 

Details

Size:  Square 4.25 x 4.25 cards

Extra Details:  I began with 4 x 4 inch square of white card stock. I used a Misti stamping tool to help me stamp all of the smaller images in the different colors of ink. I used my Stitched Rectangle dies to trim the white panels down. Because of this, the panels didn’t all turn out exactly square but I’m ok with that.

I die cut the scripy thanks from dark grey and aqua card stock. I adhered the two words to the while panels. I offset the aqua color thanks just slightly to give it a small grey shadow.  I used Wink of Stella to add some glitter to the aqua die cuts.

Lastly, I adhered the white panels on to a square yellow card bases.

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.

26239266_10209310394431560_8303607342848383067_n

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.

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.
