Jaws Pop Up

August 1, 2017

I love all of the Lawn Fawn ocean themed stamp sets. I just bought the Duh-nuh set and couldn’t wait to use it. I choose to go with very soft colors on this card. I love the effect.

Size:  Horizontal top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began by creating a white card base. I stamped the fin and the sentiment on the card front with grey ink. I masked off the fin using Post-It tape and ink blended some Tumbled Glass Distress ink over the top. I didn’t worry about getting it smooth, because I added some flicks of water to distress the ink. I used Hickory Smoke Distress Ink to color in the fin.

I stamped the shark on a scrap of water color paper in the same grey ink. I used the same Distress Inks to water color that image in.  Once dry, I fussy cut the shark out leaving a small white border.

I lined my white card base with light blue card stock. I added some bubbles using the Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. Using the same card stock, I die cut a Stitched Hillside pop up and adhered it to the inside of the card base. I adhered my shark to one of the hillsides.

I stamped my inside sentiment in the same grey ink and the card was finished.

Lovable Legends Peek A Boo

August 1, 2017

I watched Lawn Fawn’s demo video for their new Shadow Box Card and had an idea. I turned my Scalloped Box Card Pop Up into a pop up and box card.

Details

Size:  Pop Up Box card that fits in an A2 envelope

Extra Details:  I began by die cutting the pop card dies out of light blue card stock. I used one of the rectangle dies to cut a window in the bottom portion of my card. I also trimmed the fold down panel off the same section. Using some darker blue and brown card stock I cut several inside brace pieces. I used a variety of border dies to create the edges of the brace pieces.

Then, I stamped and colored all of my images. I used Crayola Fine Line markers and a water brush to add color to most of my images. I used dies to cut out a few of the images and fussy cut the rest. I left a small white border while fussy cutting to match the die cut pieces.

I used glue dots and liquid adhesive to adhere the box card and all of the images together.

Lastly I added some panels with the sentiments and extra decorations to finish the card.

Stamps Used: Lawn Fawn’s Loveable Legends, Mermaid for You, Fintastic Friends, and Dad + Me

Dies Used: Scalloped Box Card Pop Up, Puffy Cloud Borders, Simple Stitched Hill Side borders, Stitched Hill Side Borders, and Lovable Legends dies

Moving Cactus Cards

I made these cards with the Simon Says Stamp May 2017 Card Kit. I added a sentiment stamp set from Lawn Fawn because the stamp set in the card kit did not include any sentiments. I also made two cards, because I need two birthday cards within the week.

Cookie Congrats

April 21, 2017

Yesterday, I made a graduation card for my daughter, even if she doesn’t know it yet. So today, I made one for my son. He will be “graduating” Kindergarten this year.

Details

Size:  Horizontal top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I started by stamping and clear embossing all of the images for this card. I used Crayola Fine Line markers and a water brush to water color these images. Once they were dry, I fussy cut everything out.

Then I began working on the card base. I started with a dark blue card base. On the front, I partially stamped a frame in Versa Mark, and then white heat embossed it. I layered some of the images in the frame. I die cut “congrats” from silver glitter paper. I adhered this right under the images and the card front was done.

For the pop up feature on the inside of the card, I started with a white card base. I die cut a “wave” using the puffy cloud border die. Using the negative piece, I die cut another “wave” to pop up. I used the Everyday Pop Up Dies to create the pop up tabs on the white card base. I adhered the second “wave” to the pop up tabs. Next, I adhered the cookie images to the two “waves.” Before adhering the pop up element to the blue card base, I trimmed the straight edge to better fit in the blue card base. Lastly, I adhered the pop up panel and stamped the sentiment inside.

Mermaid and Flamingo

April 20, 2017

I had fun with the Lawn Fawn Box Card Pop Up Die again today. I love the idea of a surprise inside the card; which is why the outside looks like an underwater scene and the inside has a hidden island.

Details

Size:  Box Card that folds flat to an A2 size card

Extra Details:  I began by die cutting all of the basic pieces for the card base from water color paper. I did not cut any of the stitched rectangles as I planned on decorating the whole card base. I did die cut one stitched hillside and one puffy cloud border to use on the inside of the box. I also die cut “Congrats” from silver glitter paper.

Then I began stamping. Mostly, I used Versa Fine Ink for the stamping. I also used Simon Says Stamp Hybrid Inks for the colored inks. I used clear embossing powder on everything, so I could begin water coloring faster. Most of the images are stamped right on the card base. I stamped the images for the inside of the card on a scrap of water color paper. I did also re stamp one of the mermaids on the scrap of water color paper, after I messed up stamping her on the card base.

I used Crayola Fine Line Markers and a water brush to water color everything. Once everything was dry, I fussy cut out the images for the inside of the card and the mermaid.

Then I assembled the card. Because I decorate the card base itself, the assembly didn’t take that long. I LOVE this card and so does my daughter. She tried talking me into giving it to her now.

Carnival Anniversary

April 19, 2017

I have been thinking about this card design since the Pop Up Box Card Die arrived. I was finally able to get the idea out of my head today!

Details

Size:  Pop Up Box Card fold to A2 size card

Extra Details:  I began by die cutting; lots of die cutting. I cut the card base and braces from some black and white striped paper. I cut the stitched white rectangles from white card stock. The poles and banners were cut from two shades of gray card stock. The banners and one brace was die cut from some black and white text paper.

I find with this style of card that it is easiest to decorate everything before actually putting the box together. With this in mind, I began stamping next. I added grass to white rectangles that would be on the bottom and the three flaps that will fold down when the card is open. I added some clouds and a sun with colored inks. Using black ink, I added the sentiments, a balloon, and the Ferris wheel.

On a separate piece of white card stock, I stamped another Ferris wheel, a carousal, tickets, balloons, cotton candy, hot dog, burger, ketchup, and ribbon. I used colored pencils to color in all of the images on this sheet and on the pieces of the card base. Once, I was done coloring, I fussy cut everything out. I left a small white border around all of the images.

Then, I began assembling everything. I used strong double sided tape wherever possible and liquid adhesive on the smallest pieces, like the banner.

I love this card and it turned out way better than I imagined in my head.

Dancing Kraken

April 14, 2017

I have one mini action spring from the April 2017 Simon Says Stamp Card Kit that I have been waiting to use. As soon as I received the Happy Happy Happy stamp set, I knew I wanted to make a card with this sentiment: You Make Me Happy Dance. So I combined the two.

Details

Size:  Vertical top fold A2 card

Extra Details: I started this card by creating a card base from water color paper. I used Vera Mark ink and white embossing powder to add the sentiment and fish. I used my heat tool to melt the embossing powder. I stamped the fish all the way to the edge of the card.

Using Crayola Fine Tip Markers, I traced around a rectangle die.  I used this line to contain my coloring. I was going for a spotlight coloring look.  I used the same markers and a water brush to add color to the background.

While the card base was drying, I stamped, colored, and die cut the kraken. I used more Crayola markers to color the kraken. I also clear embossed the whole kraken image so it would be shiny and would look more like the other fish.

Lastly, I adhered the kraken to the card base with a mini Action Wobble.

Radish Pop Up Box Card

April 13, 2017

I bought the new Lawn Fawn Scalloped Box Card Pop Up die a few weeks ago and haven’t really had time to play with it yet. L I finally got time today. I used my new favorite vegetable pun again also.

Details

Size:  Box Card – folds to an A2 size card

Extra Details:  I began this card with a lot of die cutting. I had two sheets of the Lawn Fawn’s blue polka dot paper in my stash, so I used those for the card base and inside braces. I used the matching stitched rectangle dies and white card stock to create all of the rectangles. Using the same dies, I cut some brown rectangles as well. I found that one of the Small Stitched Rectangle Stackable dies from Lawn Fawn fill the back of the box card up nicely and give plenty of room for a message. I cut one of those from white card stock also. I used some stitched hillside border dies to create hills from the brown rectangles. I also made three hills for the inside braces with the same brown card stock. I used a scrap of green polka dotted paper to cut a grassy border for one of the white rectangles.

Although, this is the first card I have made with the box card die, this is not the first time I have used it. I made a practice card when the die first arrived. That process made me realize that it is a lot easier to decorate all of the pieces before adhering anything together. So the next step was to sort everything out, so I knew what was going where.

Then I began the stamping. I stamped the birds, phone, radish, and some leafy tops on scraps of white card stock. I fussy cut all of the images out. I used a black marker to paint the edges of the birds and phone.

I stamped the leafy tops, clouds, bees, sentiments, butterflies, and flowers directly onto their white rectangles.  Next, I adhered the brown hills and grassy border to the white rectangles. I added the ants to the dirt. I adhered a bird and the phone to the front rectangle with the grassy border.

I adhered the two long box die cuts together. I adhered all of the white rectangles in their proper places.

Then, I began work on the inside braces of the box. I adhered a brown hill to each brace. I adhered the hills to low on each brace, so I cut a small piece of the side tabs off before adhering them. I added the leafy tops, a bird, and the radish to the hills. I adhered one tab of each brace to one side panel of the box. Then I fold the box up and adhered the tabs to the opposite side and adhered the final tab to create the box card.

This was a fun card to make but it does take some planning.

Ellie and Hearts

March 30, 2017

Sometimes I’m just in the mood to make a quick card. I am still smitten with the Simon Says Stamp April 2017 Card Kit, so I drew most of my supplies from there. This card took me about 20 minutes and is one of my current favorites.

33283853690_883567b038_o

Details

Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I started by making a white card base. Then, I masked out a rectangle on my card base using a left over frame from another project. I stamped the strip of solid hearts in the four ink colors included in the kit. I did some fancy inking to help the colors transition.

The elephant was already colored and fussy cut. So all I had to do was attach an action wobble on adhere him in the middle of the hearts.

Lastly, I stamped by sentiment. I used a dark grey ink because it was what I could find fast.
