Spinning Unicorn Shaker Card + A Dreamy Distress Oxide Background

Hey guys! Today I am sharing another one of my spinner/shaker cards and this one is dreamy! This card features the Fairy-Tale Friends set from My Favorite Things.

I started with a large piece of Canson Watercolor paper taped to my work surface. I blended onto that with Distress Oxide inks in the colors Mustard Seed, Dried Marigold, Worn Lipstick, Spun Sugar, Tumbled Glass, and Peacock Feathers. Next I took the Clouds stencil (also from MFTStamps) and I used Hero Arts Unicorn White pigment ink to blend some subtle clouds across the background. I splatted some clean water onto the background and lifted it with a paper towel. I then splatted some Pearl Aqua Pigment ink onto the panel. I then cut the background down to 6x6.

I stamped the unicorn and rainbow from the Fairy-Tale Friends stamp set onto Neenah white cardstock with Gina K Amalgam ink. I then colored them in with Copic markers and cut them out with the Scan N Cut. I quickly blended a second background to look like the first. I used the nested circle dies from Hero Arts to cut a ring from that background to be my shaker frame. Using that same die set I cut another ring out of a sturdy plastic, two rings out of white cardstock, and a circle out of plastic sheeting to be my shaker window. I glued the window circle to the frame with liquid adhesive.

I blended some colors onto one of the white cardstock rings to roughly match the background colors. I then glued that ring on top of the other white ring to make it a think piece. I glued that ring to the center of the background and then used the inside edge as a guide to place a circle of doubled up foam tape on the panel. I filled that circle with my shaker sequin, placed my plastic ring around the foam tape circle, and then closed up the shaker.

I glued the unicorn to the plastic ring and the rainbow to the center of the shaker window. Next I die cut a bunch of clouds out of vellum and white cardstock and some stars out of white glitter cardstock. I glued all of those to the plastic ring as well. I picked out a sentiment from the set and curved it on my Misti door to fit around the shaker frame. I then stamped it and embossed it with white embossing powder. It would have been easier to do this before assembling the shaker, but I didn’t think that far in advance on this one. For the finishing touches I added some dashed lines with a white gel pen and some glitter to my colored images with a glitter brush.

Best Witches Halloween Card | MFT August Release

Hey crafty peoples! Today I am sharing a card created with some of the products in the My Favorite Things new release. I absolutely love making Halloween cards, so this Best Witches stamp set was right up my alley.

1.jpg

I started by stamping a bunch of the images from the set onto Neenah white cardstock with black ink. I colored in the images with Copic markers and then cut them out. I cut a panel of Bristol Smooth paper to 9 x 4. I blended over the top half of the panel with Distress Oxide ink. I used the colors Mustard Seed, Carved Pumpkin, Seedless Preserves, Wilted Violet, and Black Soot.

I free-hand cut some hills out of Bazzill Licorice Twist cardstock and Slate cardstock. Next I used the Eerie Tree die from the new release to die cut a few trees out of the same colors of cardstock. I glued two of the trees to one of the black hills and then glued it to the card. I then glued down the gray colored hill and popped up the gray tree on top of that. I popped up the final black hill with foam tape along the bottom edge.

I arranged all of the images on the panel and glued them down with either liquid adhesive or foam tape. I picked a sentiment out from the set and stamped it onto black cardstock with Versamark ink and then embossed it with white embossing powder. I cut the sentiment into two strips and popped them both up on the card.

For this finishing touches I went over the sentiment strips with a glitter brush and I added highlights to the images with a white gel pen.

Hello my friends! I am sharing a card today using some products from Pink and Main’s upcoming release! This release comes out on the 20th and I am sharing a look at the Fintastic stamp and die set.

I stamped the fish from the set with Gina K Designs Jet Black Amalgam ink and colored him in with Copic markers. I then cut him out with the coordinating die. I embossed a sentiment from the set on Bazzill Licorice Twist cardstock with white embossing powder and cut it down to a strip.

I cut the fish bowl from the Fintastic die set out of Sea Glass cardstock. I cut the inner section of the bowl out of a panel of Neenah cardstock and glued a piece of acetate to the back. I then took the Sea Glass bowl and glued it to the front of the panel.

To create the background for the shaker I took Peacock cardstock from Simon Says Stamp and embossed a Wavy stencil design in clear embossing on it. I then added foam tape around the shaker wingow, filled it with sequins, and closed it up with the background.

To finish up the card I glued the fish to the front and popped up the sentiment. I also added a few raindrop embellishments and glued the shaker panel to a card base.

Hey y’all! Today I am sharing a thank you card for a teacher and this card is special because it is a spinner card!! The stamp set I used for this card is the Thanks a Bushel set from Lawn Fawn.

I started this card by stamping a bunch of the apples and the basket of apples on Neenah cardstock with Gina K Jet Black Amalgam ink. I then stamped faces from the set on each of the apples. I colored in the images with Copic markers and then cut them out with my Scan N Cut.

I die cut a circle out of Lucky Clover cardstock from Gina K and a ring out of Green Apple cardstock from Simon Says Stamp. I then stamped the Plank background from Simon onto a 4.5 x 4.5 piece of Dark Chocolate cardstock from Gina K. I adhered that background to a 5 x 5 card base made from Kraft cardstock.

Using foam tape around the inside of the Green Apple ring of cardstock I started making my spinner on the card. I closed it up with the Lucky Clover circle. I then glued the apples all around the spinner and the basket of apples to the center.

For my sentiment I stamped the Thanks a Bushel stamp on Neenah cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink and cut it to a strip. I popped that sentiment up with foam tape on the card. I then added a second sentiment to the inside of the card which says “for being a great teacher.”

Purr-fect Trio of Cats | My Favorite Things

Hello everyone! Today I am sharing another tall card using the Purr-fect stamp set from My Favorite Things.

1.jpg

I started by creating the windowed panel using the oval die from the Magic Color Slider die set from Lawn Fawn. I used Neenah Classic Crest Solar white cardstock for this panel. I then stamped the sentiment using VersaFine Onyx Black ink. I stamped the three cat images from the stamp set onto another piece of Neenah with Gina K Jet Black Amalgam ink. I colored them in with Copic markers and then cut them out the my Scan N cut.

2.jpg

Next I created some backgrounds for each other the three cats using some scrap cardstock. The cardstocks I used were Peacock and Green Apple from Simon Says Stamp and In the Navy from Gina K Designs. I used the Diagonal Stripes stencil from Simon Says Stamp and the Mini Staggered Circles stencil from My Favorite Things to blend a pattern onto each of the three backgrounds. The inks that I used from blending are Blue Lagoon, In the Navy, and Wild Dandelion from Gina K.

4.jpg

I added foam tape to the back of the windowed panel and then added each of the three background I made to the three windows. I then adhered the entire panel to a 9x4 card base. I took the three cats that I had colored and glued them to the inside of each of the three windows with Gina K Connect Glue.

To finish the card up I used a white gel pen to add some highlights on each of the cats noses. I also used Glossy Accents on the cat eyes to make them nice and shiny.
