Valentine Card Series w/ Lawn Fawn - Flippin Awesome Love Poems

jeudi 12 décembre 2019

Hello there,

I'm back with another Valentine card showcasing two new Lawn Fawn stamp sets: You're just my type and Love Poems that are now available in the eshop!

I used the same color combination as the Reveal Wheel card I shared a few days ago but this time I made a Flippin Awesome card. This interactive die is just the good size for the typewriters and is also perfect to write a little love poem on each flap.




So I first started by cutting all the different papers I was going to need to built the Flippin Awesome element. Don't hesitate to check the list of supplies at the end of this post to know which papers I used.

To begin I folded the Flippin piece on the four lines that the die creates in the middle. I used my bone folder to get a crisp fold, and I folded those lines in both directions to help the mechanism work smoothly. I folded the two small tabs as well.




Next I applied double sided tape on the three strips in the middle and also on the square section. I removed the back of the tape and stuck one raspberry square on each section. And I did the same thing with the dark pink squares. To create a carpet floor, I cut half an inch strips out of light pink squares and attached them at the bottom of each dark pink square.

To add some interest to my card, I cut a scalloped rectangle using a die from the Flippin Awesome Add-on die set, and I attached on top of it a pixie dust rectangle measuring 4-3/8 by 2-5/8. This way I get a nice and sparkly contrast between the different shades of pink.




Before attaching the Flippin element to the pixie dust panel, I attached the same pattern papers as before on the inside. Those pieces were cut using a rectangle die from the Flippin Awesome Add-on die set. With those elements, I get a consistent look on the whole piece.

To attach my Flippin element on the pixie dust panel, I first applies double sided tape on the small tabs, I removed the back of the tape, folded the Flippin piece in half, hug the tabs around it, and then attach it to the panel.



Next I stamped the images on smooth white cardstock using jet black ink and colored them using my alcohol markers. When it was done, I cut the images using the coordinating dies. I also cut two hearts using dies from the Candy Hearts die set that was released last year, as well as the pull tab where I stamped the phrase Pull Here.

All the images were stuck using glue dots and liquid glue.

To add interest and texture to my card base, I cut a Quilted panel out of Ballet Slippers cardstock and attached it to a white card base. I stuck my Flippin element on this quilted background using liquid glue and stuck a banner where I white heat embossed the phrase "Just a little note to say..."




Because my card needed a little bit of shine, I cut tiny gold mirror hearts using the brand new Xoxo Backdrop Landscape die, and glued them on the flaps. And finally I applied clear glitter on the candy heart.

Holiday Card Series 2019 w/ Hello Bluebird - Light-Up Fairy Card

dimanche 8 décembre 2019

Hi there,

Today I am back with a new light up card featuring cute fairies by Hello Bluebird decorating their Christmas tree. I hope you'll like it.



I started by creating the background using non traditional Christmas colors: shaded lilac and spun sugar. As always, I splattered water on my panel and used a paper towel to dry it and add texture, and to create falling snow I simply splattered white paint on the paper.




The images were stamped on neenah solar white cardstock using memento tuxedo black ink and colored using my alcohol markers.




When it was done, I cut the images using the coordinating dies and white heat embossed my sentiment "Merry Wishes" on the left hand side.



Next I created the whole light circuit, and I encourage you to check the video below to see the process because it's easier to understand watching it ^^



And then I stuck the images using foam squares and glue dots. As a last final touch, and because fairies need sparkles, I glued some clear sequins and applied white blizzard nuvo drops on their wings. I also added white highlights on the images and snow on the branches.

Valentine Card Series w/ Lawn Fawn - Typewriter Reveal Wheel Card

samedi 7 décembre 2019


Hey there,

The new Lawn Fawn Valentine release will be available in a few days on December 12th, and I'm very happy today to share with you this reveal wheel card showcasing the new You're just my type stamp set as well as the new Happy Heart Day Line Border die.




To start I die cut some elements: one panel reveal wheel panel, a wheel, and a small circle. To know exactly where to stamp my phrases, I taped the template on top of the wheel, and I stamp one phrase in each square, making sure to rotate the wheel each time. I also added quotation marks for more cuteness.

Next I took a small brad that I put through the small circle, and then through the back of the wheel, and I opened this brad to keep the wheel and the template together. I turned the wheel over and applied foam squares on the small circle.




But before assembling everything, I needed a base. So I cut a large stitched rectangle out of raspberry cardstock, as well as a strip of the same pattern paper as the reveal wheel panel to get a consistent look. I stuck this pink strip on the right side of the red panel, removed the back of the foam squares, aligned the wheel behind the main panel (I used the template as a guide) and then I pressed down on to the base to adhere the wheel. I closed the brad to remove the template, and reopened it to totally secure the wheel and definitely keep it in place. I stuck a bunch of foam squares on the base and all around the wheel but without touching it, and finally attached the main panel on top.

I stamped my images on smooth white cardstock using jet black ink and colored them using my alcohol markers.  When it was done, I cut the images using the coordinating dies, I also cut thin brown strips using a die from the Picket Fence border die set (to use as baseboards) and also a piece of light pink paper from the Spiffy Speckles paper pack (to use as a carpet floor)

But I still need to cut the inside of the typewriter paper using a die that is included in the You're just my type coordinating die set. Next I finally assembled everything using a combination of liquid glue, double sided tape, foam squares and glue dots.




For my sentiment, I used the new Happy Heart Day Line Border die three times with pixie dust cardstock, white cardstock and raspberry cardstock (but just to keep the heart). I layered and glued the pixie dust on to the white to add dimension, and I adhered the phrase below the desk. I added the white heart and next the red one on top.




I also die cut and attached a small arrow next to the wheel, I stuck my reveal wheel panel to a raspberry stitched rectangle that I adhered to a raspberry card base. And I never leave a card without adding last details, so I used a gel pen to add white highlights on the images, and finally I applied glossy accents on the red heart to for an extra touch of shine.

Holiday Card Series 2019 w/ Miss Ink Stamps - A Sparkly Winter Scene

mercredi 4 décembre 2019

Hey there,

Today's card is very shiny and sparkly, and it features the new Oh, Deer! stamp set designed by Miss Ink Stamps, as well as the Sunburst stencil from a previous release.



I first started by cutting a panel out bristol cardstock and I taped the Sunburst stencil on top of it. The idea was to create a candy cane background so I used festive berries distress ink to color my panel. When the ink was dry, I kept the stencil in place and applied glitter paste on my panel.



I stamped my images on smooth white cardstock using alcohol marker friendly black ink and cut them using my Scan 'n Cut machine.

I started with the trees. I wanted to keep them white so they would stand out on the candy cane background but still, to give them some interest I used fine glitter. I first applied liquid glue in a pretty random way, and then I sprinkled glitter on the trees.




And while the trees were drying, I colored the deers and bird using my alcohol markers. Next I assembled the card. I started by attaching my panel on a white card base using foam tape. Next I stuck a white border at the bottom to create the ground.



I stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set that says "Walking in a winter wonderland" and cut it to create a small banner, and then I attached everything using foam tape and foam squares. And as a last final touch I glued a bunch of clear sequins to add more sparkles to this card.

25 Days of Christmas Tags with Hello Bluebird

vendredi 29 novembre 2019



Hello there,

I'm back today with tags for the 25 days of Christmas tags event, but this time featuring some cuties from Hello Bluebird. This 25 days of Christmas tag event is organized by Tracey McNeely and a lot of craft companies are sponsoring it.

There are many ways that you can get a chance to win a prize, and you will find all the details in Tracey's blog post.




So I first started by cutting six tags out of corrugated cardstock. And next I added a lot of texture to my tags: I applied white ink on the tags to make the corrugated texture pop, next I splattered white paint to create falling snow, and when it was dry I roughly applied white paste on the edges to create a frosty look on my tags. And to bring this frosty effect out, I sprinkled glitter on the paste to make it sparkle like real snow.




While the paste was drying, I stamped and colored my images, and when the coloring was done, I cut the images using the coordinating dies.




To get a nice back for my tags I attached them on a piece of brown cardstock, and next I used my cropadile to pierce holes at the top of my tags and to add white eyelets. I cut additional tags out of pattern papers by Echo Park and added white eyelets on those elements as well.

And finally, I stuck the critters, some snowflakes and assembled the tags with ribbon, twine and small bells.
