Magengo - Happy Winter - Reveal Wheel Card

samedi 19 octobre 2019

Hey there,

I'm back today with a reveal wheel card showcasing the new Happy Winter digital stamp set. This cute penguin is my favorite from this set so I wanted to use only him on a card but I'll be back soon with another project featuring the other images ^^

So to start, I die cut the reveal wheel with the arc shaped window die taped at the top. To create my winter sky, I first applied tumbled glass oxide ink all over the panel to get a nice base. Next I added salty ocean oxide ink at the top. And finally I applied a little bit of faded jeans oxide ink at the very top to darken my sky.

To add texture on my panel, I splattered water that I dried using a paper towel, and then I added drops of white paint to give the illusion of falling snow. Next I cut the wheel and applied salty ocean oxide ink on the middle part of the wheel, and I created the same texture as before on it.

To ground my winter scene, I cut two wavy borders out of white cardstock, applied liquid glue on the top edges, and added chunky glitter on my borders. This way my scene will have a cute and magical look.

Next I stamped four sentiments on the wheel using clear embossing ink, applied white embossing powder on the ink, and heat set everything using my heat tool. For the last part of my sentiment, I wanted a touch of color so I stamped the word "Joyful" on white cardstock using candied apple oxide ink, and I cut it using the coordinating die. And to totally complete my sentiment, I stamped and white heat embossed the phrase "Hope your holidays are" and an ampersand.

Next I assembled the reveal wheel, and stuck it to a dark blue panel. And to finish by background I stuck the two snow borders at the bottom using foam tape. I printed my images on Neenah solar white cardstock, cut them using my Scan' n cut machine and colored them using my spectrum noir markers. And when my images were colored, I attached them on my panel using foam tape and glue dots.

For final touches, I applied clear shimmer on the hat as well as on the presents. And added white highlights on the images. I attached my panel to a dark blue card base, and because the sky looked a little bit to empty, I decided to add some clear sequins.

And that's it! Simple and easy but still very cute. I leave you with the video, and wish you a very nice day.

Lawn Fawn - 31 Days of Halloween Spooktacular Video Hop - Box Card

mercredi 9 octobre 2019

Hi there,

Today I'm very happy and excited to share with you this Halloween box card featuring some Lawn Fawn supplies, including the Spooky Village stamp set.

This card is part of the 31 days of halloween spooktacular video hop that is organized by Marisa from Witchtionery Crafting and Katy from Hook, Line and InkerEach day of October, crafters and card makers will share Halloween projects. And to be in the drawing for the prize pack at the end of the month, you have to comment once on each video all month long. Please check the main page and make sure to go check this page to comment on each video for a chance to win. Good luck!

This card was inspired by a winter village box card I made last year and I thought it would be fun to adapt it to a spooky village box card. Hope you'll like it.

So I first started by cutting two scallop box card bases out of ground coffee cardstock. And I cut three of the four flaps give my box a different look compared to my winter box card from last year. I folded the tabs and lines, except for the one with the flap. It will be the back of my card so I needed it to stay straight.

To give some texture to my card base, I applied a little bit of ground espresso distress ink on the outside edges of my card bases. I cut rectangles and squares out of a yellow paper from the Spiffy Speckles paper pack, and applied vintage photo distress ink on the edges to get a worn out look. And I also splattered drops of vintage photo distress ink on the edges of those yellow pieces, and attached them to the box card bases.

To ground my characters on the outside of my box, I cut four wavy borders out of bristol cardstock that I colored using peeled paint and forest moss distress inks. And then I stuck those elements down to the card base.

Next I cut five insert pieces out of ground espresso cardstock, I applied double sided tape on the tabs, folded the tabs and then attached one side of those insert pieces on the left panel inside the card base. I attached both card bases together, aligned the five insert pieces and removed the back of the tape on the remaining tabs, folded the box to stick those tabs inside it. And finally I attached the last tab to definitely close and form the box card (watching the video for this part can be helpful ^^)

All my images were stamped on white cardstock using jet black ink, colored using my alcohol markers, and cut  using the coordinating dies. I also cut and colored more wavy borders that I attached on the back flap of my card as well as on each insert piece. And then I finally attached the images.

My winter box card from last year had a string of lights, so I recreated one using tiny pumpkins and I think it will be the perfect final touch to my spooky village.

Lawn Fawn - Fun in the Sunflowers - Pull Tab Card

samedi 5 octobre 2019

Hi there,

Today's card was made for a collaboration with my friend Aya. The requirements were to use Lawn fawn stamps and to create a fall card. Just for fun. Aya has created a super cute and fun kitchen scene featuring two bunnies baking pies, so be sure to check her YouTube channel to watch her video!

To create my card, I first started by cutting several elements to build the background: a rectangle panel, two wavy borders and a grass border. All from strathmore bristol cardstock.

On the rectangle panel, I created clouds using a homemade stencil and faded jeans distress ink. I also created texture on the clouds by splattering water drops on the paper, as well as drops of faded jeans. The larger wavy border was colored using peeled paint and forest moss distress inks. And for the smaller wavy border, I used scattered straw, rusty hinge and ground espresso distress inks.

As always I stamped all my images on neenah solar white cardstock using jet black ink and I colored them using my spectrum noir markers. Feel welcome to watch the video below to see which markers I used. When the coloring was done, I assembled a few things such as the puppy in the basket, the beret on the girl's head and her scarf, the sunflowers in the red cart.

Next I die cut a notch at the top and a slot at the bottom of my cloud panel, as well as a coordinated slot out of my khaki green wavy border And next I taped this wavy grass border to the cloud background. I die cut the pull tab mechanism, folded the tabs, applied tape on those tabs, and put this pull tab mechanism through the slot at the back of my panel. And I also die cut the sleeve that I folded and attached at the back of my panel to help the pull tab go up and down straight. I adhered the remaining piece of cloud background at the top of the pull tab, and added a tiny arrow to the tab so the recipient of the card knows to pull it.

Next I attached the squirrel to the small tabs, and stuck the rest of the elements down. The khaki green wavy border looked a little bit too flat to me so I simply stamped little hills using peeled paint distress ink.

I stamped my sentiment on the grass border, attached my panel to a kraft card base, and finally added little leaves here and there.

Miss Ink Stamps - Haunted House Infinity Shaker Card

mercredi 2 octobre 2019

Hello there,

I'm back with another Halloween infinity shaker card featuring the Haunted House and Boo Crew stamp sets designed by Miss Ink StampsMy idea for the background was to have the haunted house kind of muted, as if it was surrounding by a thick fog, so by applying oxide inks on top of the stamped image, I would get this effect.

I started by applying picked raspberry at the bottom of my panel towards the half of the house. Next I applied blueprint sketch on the other half and blended both colors. And to darken my night sky, I added black soot at the top of my panel. Next I added a first layer of texture by splattering water drops on my panel, as a second layer, I splattered drops of silver paint, mostly at the very top of my panel, and finally, as a third layer, I mixed black acrylic paint with water and splattered drops on my panel.

I stamped my images on neenah solar white cardstock using memento tuxedo black ink, I cut them using my scan 'n cut machine and colored them using my spectrum noir markers. When all the images were colored, I placed my panel into a plastic pouch, filled it with clear sequins and deep blue sequins, and closed the plastic pouch.

To ground my scene, I cut two grass borders out of black cardstock that I stuck down at the bottom of my panel. I placed my little characters and attached them using glue dots. And finally I adhered my plastic pouch to a navy blue card base.

And that's it. Ready to join these cuties into this spooky fog to see if someone, or something, lives in this house? I leave you with the video, and wish you an awesome day!
