Robot Explosion

May 18, 2015

When I updated my blog in February 2016, I lost all the posting I had already done. I am doing my best to put the posts back up but I do not remember all the details for each card.  Unfortunately, the details for this project may be a bit scarce.

I had just seen a video tutorial on how to make an explosions card and had to try it. I also needed a thank you card so I combined the two.


Front of the card


Inside of the card


Size:  Vertical top fold 4.25 x 4.25” card

Extra Details:  You need a square piece of paper to make the explosion inside the card, so I made a square card. I started with the panel for the front of the card. I stamped the robot and speech bubble. I also made masks for the images. I wanted to add droplets of color, so I smooshed my dye ink pads on an acrylic block and add a little water. Using a paint brush, I sprinkled some ink drops all over the panel. Once the ink was dry, I removed the masks and adhered the panel to the front of a square green card base.

Then I started on the explosion panel. I started with a flat piece of typing paper. I stamped the sentiment first. Then, I stamped the robot and speech bubble. I did some more masking to make the speech bubble big enough to fit my custom sentiment. The robot looked to be floating in air, so I added a strip of thin patterned paper to help ground him.  I stamped the beep boop sentiment in the same colors I used to splatter the front panel.

After all the ink was dry, I folded the paper following the tutorial’s instructions and adhered it to the inside of the card.

Stamps Used: Lawn Fawn’s Beep Boop Birthday and Riley’s ABC’s

Ink: Memento Dew Drop Inks in Bahama Blue, Pear Tart, Lady Bug, Tuxedo Black, Dandelion, and Cottage Ivy

Hope you enjoyed the card
