Holiday Card Series w/ Sunny Studio - Edge to Edge Shaker Card

jeudi 21 octobre 2021

Hello there,

I'm so happy to be back with an easy shaker card showcasing Santa who is experiencing a new way to deliver the Christmas presents this year!

Usually I like to create busy scenes with lots of images, but this time I went with a very few, and everything is listed down below ^^ I stamped my images using extreme black ink by My Favorite Things, I cut them all using the coordinating dies and then colored everything using my alcohol markers.

Once the coloring was done, I cut a light grey panel measuring 5,25 x 4", and took a plastic sleeve from stash. I cut the flap at the top of that sleeve, as well as the seams on the three other edges. I ended up with two plastic sheets, I kept on of those and applied strong double sided tape on the four edges.

I placed my grey panel in the middle of the plastic sheet, and cut the four corners off. Next I removed three of the backing papers, and folded the flaps to stick them at the back of my panel. I filled my pocket with some accessories: polymer clay peppermint candy, gems, clear sequins, some shiny red sequins, and a million tiny stars.


When I was happy with my shaker mix, I shaked the pocket to spread the sequins inside of it, and I closed the sleeve by folding the remaining flap. Next I cut a 5,5 x 4,25" white card base, and attached my shaker panel on top using liquid glue.

I assembled the hot air balloon and the banner, and placed Santa inside the basket, and I stuck those pieces on the shaker panel using foam squares, along with my sentiment "Season's Greetings" that I heat embossed on white cardstock using silver embossing powder.

Finally I added hightlights on the images using a white gel pen, and then cut some snowflakes out of white glitter cardstock that I attached around the balloon.

Holiday Card Series w/ Sunny Studio - Magical Holiday Express

jeudi 14 octobre 2021

Hello there,

I'm so happy to be back with a Sunny Studio magical scene featuring a cute train on its way to deliver lots of presents and treats for Christmas, this new card features lots of images from Holiday Express, as well as one of the banners from Balloon ridesthe candy canes from Penguin palsand the pine tree border from Winter scenes.


I started with the background, and cut an 8,5 x 4,25" bristol panel. And I created a bright and magical sky using cracked pistachio, peacock feathers and wilted violet oxide inks. I also added some texture to make that sky more interesting: water droplets, liquid stardust by Lawn Fawn, some Copic opaque white droplets and lots of chipped sapphire oxide ink + water splatters.


I set the panel aside to dry and then stamped my images using an alcohol marker friendly black ink, I used the coordinating dies to cut them all and as always I used my alcohol markers to color everything, and because the sky was pretty bright and colorful, I kept the locomotive and the wagons very neutral and colored those elements using grey shades.

Next I assembled and attached the images on the panel, starting with the tree borders at the bottom using foam squares, and then all the other images as well floating above the trees.


To create the sentiment, I used stamps from Holiday Express, I heat embossed the phrase on a strip of vellum using silver embossing powder, and I attached that strip at the bottom of my panel right on the tree border. But I didn't want the glue to show at the back of the vellum, so I created a flap at each end of the strip and stuck those flaps at the back of the panel.

Finally, I stuck my slimline panel on a purple card base, and as always I added a million details and highlights on the images to make them pop. And I also glued some iridescent clear jewels here and there to emphasize the magic of Christmas time.

Holiday Card Series w/ Hello Bluebird - Shopping at the Christmas Market

dimanche 10 octobre 2021

Hey there,

I'm so happy to be back for Hello Bluebird with this lovely scene at the Christmas market featuring a sweet little girl and her dog deciding on which items they should buy to decorate the house for the holiday season. As always I picked a lot of images from different sets to build and furnish my little scene and you will find the list of supplies down below.

I stamped all my images using extreme black ink by My Favorite Things, cut them all using the coordination dies and colored everything using my alcohol markers in very bright and colorful tones.

Once the coloring was done, I cut the elements out of a light brown woodgrain cardstock to build the stand using the Gallery frame #2 and to make those Christmas stand pieces less flat I colored the edges using brown alcohol markers.

Next I cut another frame out of some thick cardboard and glued my woodgrain frame on top of it to bring dimension to the stand. And then I attached my frame on a piece of brown plaid pattern paper to create the back of the stand. And I also glued a few more pieces to finish building the stand: the bottom part to create the counter, the scalloped strip at the top of that counter to make it more pretty, and then the remaining strip to create a shelf to put the presents and accessories on.

I attached the Christmas stand on a 5,5 x 4,25" snowflake pattern paper panel, and cut a snow border using the Summer woods scene die that I attached at the bottom of the panel using foam squares. For the roof, I cut two scalloped strips using a die from the Basic borders die set: a white one and a dark brown one. I attached the white one on top of the dark brown one, and stuck that roof element above de frame to totally finish the Christmas stand.

Next I assembled and attached all my cute images to fill the stand and give life to my little scene. And once everything was glued in place, I white heat embossed the Merry Christmas banner on red cardstock and attached it at the top of the roof. And finally I added a bunch of details and highlights using a white gel pen to make the images pop and bring more holiday spirit to the scene.

Holiday Card Series w/ Sunny Studio - Enchanted Shaker Card

jeudi 7 octobre 2021

Hello there,

I'm super happy to be back for Sunny Studio with an enchanted shaker card featuring two cute fairies decorating a pink Christmas tree.

As always I stamped a bunch of images (all the supplies are listed down below) using extreme black ink by My Favorite Things, I used the coordinating dies to cut them all and before coloring everything using my alcohol markers, I used my memento black pen to give my cute fairies long sleeves.

Next I moved on to the background and covered a 5,5 x 4,25" bristol panel with spun sugar distress ink. And I used the Forest Trees Stencils to create a pretty forest background using worn lipstick distress ink. And once I was happy with the result, I added some texture to this background: water droplets first, and then I mixed some festive berries distress ink with water to create tiny splatters on the paper and this way bring a little bit more contrast.


I cut some elements to create my window frame. I started by cutting a 5,5 x 4,25"  white panel, and to cut an opening out of this panel, I used the largest die from the Stitched Oval 2 die setAnd to give this window panel some texture and interest, I used the Woodgrain embossing folder. I just placed my panel in that folder and I sent it to my die cutting machine.

I attached this woodgrain window panel on a piece of clear acetate, and then attached foam tape at the back of that panel, all around the oval shape and on the four corners as well. I applied a generous amount of powder along the inside edges of the oval foam tape to get rid of any stickiness, and I cleaned up the acetate using a microfiber cloth.

I poured lots of clear sequins directly on the acetate window, and stuck my forest tree panel right on top of the window panel to create and totally close the shaker panel.

And to bring more interest to this window panel and make it even more pretty, I created a frame: I cut a scalloped oval shape using the largest die from the Scalloped oval mat 1 die setand used the largest die from the Stitched oval 2 die set to cut an opening in that scalloped oval shape and this way create a frame, that I attached on my woodgrain window panel using liquid glue.


I cut a white grass border using a die from the Picket fence die set, and stamped my sentiment on it, I attached that border at the bottom of my panel using foam squares at both ends, and then I stuck all my cute images using foam squares mostly and also liquid glue. And once everything was attached, I added lots of details and highlights on the images and stuck my panel on a white card base.

And that's it! I hope that you like this magical Christmas shaker scene in the forest. Feel welcome to check the video below! Thanks for stopping by, and see you next week!

Lawn Fawn Monochrome Halloween Challenge

mardi 5 octobre 2021

 Hey there,

I am so excited to be back with a new monochrome card for Lawn Fawn. I made this card for a special occasion: I love to make that kind of cards, especially during the spooky season, so with LF we thought that it would be super fun to organize a monochrome Halloween challenge! How cool is that?!

Here are the details about this challenge:

create a Halloween themed project using Lawn Fawn products use a monochrome color palette share your project on Instagram using #lawnfawnmonochromehalloweenchallenge the winner will receive a $50 gift certificate to https://www.lawnfawn.com challenge starts today Oct 5th and ends Oct 18th at 11:59pm Pacific Time I will pick a random winner on Oct 19th, will announce it in my IG stories and will contact this person to tell him/her to contact fawnies@lawnfawn.com to get their prize

I can't wait to see what you guys create, it's going to be so fun!

I stamped all the images using jet black ink, cut them all using the coordinating dies and then colored everything using some green alcohol markers.

Once the coloring was done, I cut a stitched panel and picked three green oxide inks to create a spooky background: twisted citron, mowed lawn and rustic wilderness. And once I was happy with the result, I did my same texture routine: water droplets, some rustic wilderness oxide ink mixed with water to create small splatters on the darkest sections of the panel. And finally some shiny splatters that I created by mixing twisted citron oxide + water + liquid stardust.


Next I moved on to the flippy flappy part of the card, and to see exactly how it was made, I invite you to watch the process video below because it's always easier to understand how an interactive card works with images.

Once the whole flippy flappy mechanism was done, I attached one of the ghosts at the end of the acetate strip. And to keep him flat on the panel, I just attached a coin at its back to make it more heavy.


Next I attached my spooky panel on top of my flippy flappy panel, and then started to assemble everything on my panel: I attached two woodgrain pieces that I colored in green to create the floor, and next I finally attached all the remaining images on my panel using liquid glue, foam squares and glue dots. And at the end, I added a million details and highlights on the images and background using a white gel pen, and I stamped my sentiment 'Happy Halloween' on the pull tab.

Sunny Studio - Pumpkin Patch Pop-Up Card

jeudi 30 septembre 2021

 Hey there,

I'm so happy to back on Sunny Studio's blog today with this lovely pop-up autumn scene at the pumpkin patch. You know that my favorite thing to do is to create cute scenes with lots of details, so as always I picked my images from different sets to help me build the idea I had in mind. You will find the list of supplies down below.

So I stamped all the images using an alcohol marker friendly black ink, cut them all using the coordinating dies and then colored everything using my alcohol markers.


Once the coloring was done, I cut a panel using the center picture window die set by Lawn Fawn and created an autumn sky using dried marigold, kitsch flamingo, picked raspberry and seedless preserves oxide inks. I blended those inks on the top section of the panel, and then added lots of texture to that background to bring more interest to it.

Next I created an identical panel that will go on the front of the card, and cut a window out of it using an oval shape die. I folded the main panel in half, flipped it upside down, lined up the window panel with the bottom section of the main panel, applied glue right on the blank section in the middle, and then attached the oval shape right on that blank spot. And next I stuck foam squares at the back of the window panel that I attached on the bottom section of the main panel to frame the oval shape.


I colored the inside bottom section of the panel using frayed burlap oxide ink, and cut two small grass borders, using a die from Picket fence, that I colored using the same ink. I stuck one of these on the outside of the card and the other one on the inside of the card. And next I attached a few images on the front of the card using liquid glue and foam squares.

Next I moved on to the inside of the card and before creating the pop-up mechanism, I attached all the images I wanted to see in the background.


For the pop-up mechanism, it's always easier to understand with images so I invite you to watch the video below to see how it was made. Basically I created two rows of pop-up sections: on the middle section I attached the wooden cart full of pumpkins and sunflowers with a kid on top, and one the front section I stuck a line of pumpkins and sunflowers with a kid on the left side and a crow on the right.


At the end I created my sentiment in three parts using Words of gratitude: the first part says 'Thank you' and goes on the front of the card, and the second and third parts go on the inside and say 'for always being there' and '& always being you'. And finally I added lots of highlights and details on the images and autumn sky using a white gel pen.

Spooky Card Series w/ Hello Bluebird - Good Fright into the Woods

mardi 28 septembre 2021

 Hey there,

I'm back with more Hello Bluebird spooky inspiration, and this time we go trick or treat into the woods with three little friends that are from the new Good Fright stamp set. As always I used a bunch of images from different sets so be sure to check the video or supplies list below for more information.

I started by cutting three trees using the High-rise tree scene die, and I colored each element using hickory smoke and black soot distress inks. I also colored the inside pieces using the same inks.

Next I stamped all the images using extreme black ink by My Favorite Things, I used the coordinating dies to cut them all and then colored everything using my alcohol markers.


For the background I cut a 7 x 5" bristol panel and created a sky night using blueprint sketch, chipped sapphire and black soot oxide inks. And for the grass section, I used peeled paint and forest moss oxide inks.


Once the panel was dry, I attached all the elements and images. I started by placing the trees and to stick the inside pieces using liquid glue. And then I stuck everything using foam squares, glue dots and liquid glue. And as always I finished my card with lots of highlights and details on the images and background using a gel pen.

Spooky Card Series w/ Hello Bluebird - Halloween Fun at the Cemetery

samedi 25 septembre 2021

 Hey there,

It's time for a new spooky dose of Halloween fun with Hello Bluebird and this little scene at the cemetery that features Best Days from last release. I picked a whole bunch of images from many stamp sets, so make sure to check the video or the list of supplies below for more information. As always I stamped all the images using extreme black ink by My Favorite Things, I used the coordinating dies to cut them all and then colored everything using my alcohol markers.

Next I cut all the pieces to build my background: a panel that I cut using the third die from the Nesting A7 die set, a long rectangle to make the path, a grass border and some bushes.

I started by creating the sky using cracked pistachio, peacock feathers and wilted violet oxide inks, and next I added a bunch of texture: water splatters first, then some black soot and wilted violet splatters, some liquid stardust to make that sky all starry, and finally some white acrylic paint splatters.

I colored the bushes and grass border using rustic wilderness oxide ink, and colored the long rectangle using hickory smoke and black soot oxide inks. And I attached those pieces on my panel using foam squares.


Next I stuck the images using a combination of glue dots, liquid glue and foam squares, and stamped my sentiment 'Best witches to you this Halloween' using black versafine ink.


I cut a 7 x 5" card base and also cut a frame using the first and third dies from the Nesting A7 die set, I temporarily taped that frame to the card base, and glued my panel right in the middle. Next I attached that frame using foam squares. And finally I added a whole lot of highlights on the images using a white gel pen.

Sunny Studio - Apple Picking with Fall Friends

jeudi 23 septembre 2021

Hello there,

I'm happy to be back with a new little scene for Sunny Studio, a lovely apple picking automal card featuring some cute critters from Fall Friends, as well as a few images from other sets: the tree image is from Seasonal Treesthe farm and the crows are from Farm freshand my sentiment and apple basket are from Happy Harvest.

As always I stamped all the images using extreme black ink by My Favorite Things, cut them all using the coordinating dies and then colored everything using my alcohol markers in traditional automnal colors such as khaki green, yellow, orange, red, and a touch of faded blue for the barn.


Next I cut a 5,5 x 4,25" bristol panel and created a simple sky using a cloud stencil along with dried marigold and ripe persimmon distress inks, and then I attached all the elements on this cloudy panel, starting with the farm border using foam tape, and then the rest of the images using foam squares and liquid glue.


I added highlights on the images using a white gel pen, and stamped my sentiment 'Autumn Blessings' from Happy Harvest at the top left corner using black versafine ink. And finally I stuck my apple picking panel on a card base, and added white dots to each critters cheeks.

Spooky Card Series w/ Lawn Fawn - Shaker Center Picture Window Card

mardi 21 septembre 2021

 Hello there,

Today we're getting spooky with Lawn Fawn and three cheeky kitties who meet by the magic cauldron to experiment with new spells. Those kitties and all the magic accessories are from the new Purrfectly Wicked and Purrfectly Wicked add-on, and I used a few other images from different sets that are listed at the end right below the video.

I started by cutting a center picture window panel out of bristol cardstock, and I created a spooky wall on one half of the panel using a brick stencil along with cracked pistachio, peacock feathers and wilted violet distress oxide inks. I added more details to this brick wall by splattering water droplets on top of it, and brought more contrast by adding splatters of black soot and wilted violet oxide inks mixed with water.

Next I created floor. I used the Simple Stripes Landscape Backdrop die to cut some stripes out of a woodgrain grey cardstock. I added black soot oxide ink on the long edges of each stripe, and added black soot + water splatters on each one of those elements, and then I stuck them on the second half of the panel.


Next I moved on to the front of my card, and created a second spooky wall using the same oxide inks and stencil as before. I used the oval die from the Center Picture Window die set to create an opening in this second brick panel.

I flipped the main panel upside down, and placed the second brick panel on the bottom section, I made sure that it was lined up with the main panel at the back, I applied liquid glue in the center, and then attached the oval brick shape on the blank spot in the center.

I stuck the window panel on a piece of acetate, and attached sticky foam strips at the back of this window panel, all around the oval window, I added more foam tape at the corners as well and then I applied powder all along those foam strips. And I cleaned the window using a microfiber cloth to remove the excess of powder.

On the the main panel, I placed some sequins right on the oval shape, and next I attached the window panel on top of the sequins to complete my small shaker panel. And at the bottom of this shaker panel, I attached the remaining wood plank.


Next I stamped all my images using Jet Black ink, cut them all using the coordinating dies and then colored everything using my alcohol markers. And once it was done, I attached some of the images on the front of my card.

I also attached some of the images inside the card, right on the spooky wall, using liquid glue, and then I created the interactive pop-up mechanism. And I invite you to watch the video below to see exactly how it was made. And once the whole mechanism was done, I stuck the last remaining images.


Both parts of my sentiment were white heat embossed: on the front the first one that says 'Trick or treat' on raspberry cardstock, and on the inside the second one that says 'No tricks, just treats' on peacock cardstock. And as always I finished my card with some white highlights and details using a gel pen on the images and spooky brick walls.
