Birthday Balloons Fuse Tool Shaker

Hello friends! Today I have a fun fuse tool shaker card to share with you! This card features some stamps from the Party Like a Panda stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.

To begin I took a piece of Canson watercolor paper and blended across is with a few different colors of Distress Oxide inks. The colors I used are Tumbled Glass, Seedless Preserves, Worn Lipstick, and Squeezed Lemonade.

I sprinkled clean water onto my Distress Oxide background and soaked it up with a paper towel. This lifts up some spots of ink across the panel. Next I took Brutus Monroe Aqua Pigment in the color Pearl and splatted some drops of that onto the panel. To finish up the background I added even more splatters with some of the Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide ink.

I took the Party Like a Panda set and picked out the balloon sentiment. I stamped that onto vellum with Versamark ink and embossed it with Alabaster embossing powder. Next I took the Birthday sentiment and stamped it onto some white cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink. I fussy cut both of those sentiments out with scissors. For the last sentiment I picked out one of the smaller one, embossed it in white on black cardstock, and cut it into a strip.

Using my Fuse Tool I turned my background panel into a shaker pocket. I filled that pocket with some large clear glitter and clear micropearls. Once it was closed up I adhered it to an A2 size card base with my ATG gun. I then glued all of the sentiments to the front with a combination of both liquid adhesive and foam tape.

For the finishing touches on this card I first went over the balloon letters with Copic markers to give them some color. I then went over them with Nuvo Crystal Glaze to give them dimension. Using my Wink of Stella glitter brush I added sparkle to the other two sentiments. Finally I added some sequins around the sentiments white I then filled with the Crystal Glaze.

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.

1.jpg

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.

2.jpg

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.

4.jpg

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.

Creating an Ocean Themed Frame | Seahorse Background

Today I created an ocean themed card using the new Seahorse Background stamp from Simon Says Stamp!

I started by stamping the Seahorse Background onto a panel of Neenah Solar White cardstock with Fog ink from Simon Says Stamp. Next I took out the Beautiful Mermaids stamp set (also from SSS) , stamped a sentiment onto the panel and embossed it with gold embossing powder.

Using the Hero Arts nested circle die set I created a frame out of white cardstock. I then adhered a bunch of the colorful images that I cut out to the back of the frame to create my ocean themed wreath. I used the panel of cardstock that I cut the frame from as a stencil to blend some Gina K Designs Ocean Mist ink onto my background panel.
