Sending Faraway Hugs | Vellum Framed Shaker

Hey everyone! I hope your day is going well today. I have a shaker card to share with you today using some products from Simon Says Stamp.

I took out the Rose Lattice Background stamp and stamped it with Versamark ink on Bristol Smooth paper and embossed it with Alabaster white embossing powder. I then blended over that with Distress Oxide inks in the colors Spun Sugar, Abandoned Coral, Festive Berries, and Aged Mahogany. I cut the background down to 4.25 x 4.25.

Next I picked out the circular frame from the Leafy Frames stamp set from Simon and I stamped it on vellum with Versamark. I embossed that with the Alabaster embossing powder and fussy cut around the outside of the frame. I found a circle die to fit the middle of the frame and cut that out.

I cut a ring out of Plum Hero Arts cardstock and glued it to my leafy circle frame. I then added acetate to the back and went around the circle with doubled up foam tape to make my shaker window. I filled shaker with large clear glitter and adhered it to the ink blended background.

For the first half of the sentiment I stamped the ‘sending’ on vellum and embossed it in white. For the second half I picked a smaller sentiment and stamped it with Dusty Rose on white cardstock. I popped up both sentiments with foam tape. To finish up that card I went over the smaller sentiment with Wink of Stella glitter and added some Moonshine sequins.

Rainbow Texture Paste | Celebration Video Hop

Hey crafty people! Today I am excited to be sharing a card I created for a video hop celebrating It’s Me, JD hitting 50,000 subscribers on her YouTube channel! We celebrated with some rainbow themed cards and there is also a giveaway! If you want to find out more about the giveaway head over to It’s Me, JD’s blog.

To start this card I cut a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock to 3.5 x 8.5. I then picked out a sentiment from the Big Birthday Greetings stamp set from Simon Says Stamp and stamped it on the panel with Versafine Onyx Black ink.

Next I taped the panel to a craft mat with the Abstract Triangles stencil from Simon Says Stamp over the top. I dyed some Ranger transparent gloss texture paste with Distress Oxide ink and spread it over the stencil. I used the colors Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Festive Berries, Abandoned Coral, Wild Honey, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Salty Ocean, and Tumbled Glass.

In order to dye the texture paste all you need to do is smoosh the ink pad onto the craft mat, add the paste, and then mixed it up with a palette knife. Once I was done added the paste to the top of the panel I washed the stencil off and did the bottom half of the panel as well. Next I removed and washed the stencil, the craft mat, and the palette knife and then I set the panel aside to dry for about an hour.

I popped up the panel onto a 4 x 9 card base with foam tape. To finish it up I added a few Moonshine sequins from Simon Says Stamp.

Simple Shaker Cards | My Favorite Things

Hello everyone! Today I am sharing some simple shaker cards using the brand new Friendly Foxes stamp set from My Favorite Things. Be sure to check out the rest of My Favorite Things brand new release!

1.jpg

I stamped three of the foxes from the set onto Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and colored them in with Copics. I cut them out using the coordinating die set.

3.jpg

I blended some backgrounds for my shakers with Distress Oxide ink. I used the colors Shaded Lilac, Seedless Preserves, Cracked Pistachio, Lucky Clover, Tumbled Glass, and Peacock Feathers. I used two colors on each of the three backgrounds.

6.jpg

I started the background by taking the lighter of the two colors and blending an area big enough for my shaker. I then taped a polka dot stencil from My Favorite Things over the top and blended on that with the darker color. I lifted the stencil and gently added a little bit more of the darker color along the bottom.

4.jpg

To create the front panels I took A2 sizes of Neenah Solar White and cut circles out of each of them with the Hero Arts nested circle die set. I then stamped a different sentiment from the set on each of the three panels with black ink.

7.jpg

I adhered a piece of acetate to the back of each panel and then added doubled up foam tape around the window. I all of the shakers with large clear glitter and closed them up with the background panels.

5.jpg

I adhered my shaker panels to A2 size card bases. I then glued one fox to each of the three shaker windows with Gina K Designs Connect glue.

To finish up the cards I used a white gel pen and added some highlights to each of the foxes.

Interactive Mermaid Spinner Card | Mama Elephant

Hello my friends! Today I am sharing a really fun interactive card using the Little Mermaiden Agenda stamp set from Mama Elephant. First I stamped all of the images from the Little Mermaiden Agenda stamp set on Bristol Smooth paper with Gina K Designs Jet Black Amalgam ink. I colored them in using my Arteza watercolor markers and then I cut them all out with my Scan N Cut.

1.jpg

On a large piece of Bristol Smooth paper I blended a background with Distress Oxide inks. I used the colors Squeezed Lemonade, Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers, and Blueprint Sketch. I then placed the Waves stencil from Simon Says Stamp over the background and blended over it with white pigment ink. Once that was dry I went over it once more with the Distress Oxide ink to darken it up a little.

2.jpg

I cut down my background panel to be 5.75 x 5.75. I then cut two different size rings out of Bristol Smooth paper with the Hero Arts nested circle dies. I blended over these circles trying to match the same blending on my background panel. I also cut a ring out of some thick, durable plastic which I cut from some packaging. I took the smaller of the two blended rings and glued it to the middle of the background.

4.jpg

Using the ring on the background as a guide I very carefully placed a long piece of doubled up foam tape around the inner circle to make a shaker area. Next I placed the plastic ring around the foam tape ring. I glued a piece of acetate to the second blended ring to make a window. I filled up the shaker area with clear Micro Pearls from Brutus Monroe and Sea Glass sequins from Simon Says Stamp. I then closed up the shaker with the window piece.

3.jpg

I glued the little mermaid images that I colored all the way around the plastic ring. This ring is able to spin around because of the way it is put together. I stamped a sentiment from the Beautiful Mermaids stamp set from Simon Says Stamp on some Neenah Solar White cardstock with Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink. I popped up the sentiment on the bottom of the shaker and glued one of the mermaids on the shaker window.

5.jpg

For the finishing touches I first took a white gel pen and added highlights to all the mermaids. I also added some dots on the shaker ring to look like small bubbles. I glued three of the little fish images from the Little Mermaiden Agenda set across the shaker. Lastly, I added a few Raindrops embellishments from Lucy’s Cards.

Alice in Wonderland Card Design | Pink & Main

Hello friends! Today I am sharing an Alice in Wonderland themed card design using some products from Pink and Main.

1.jpg

I started by stamping a bunch of the images from the Wonderland stamp set onto some Neenah Solar White cardstock with Gina K Designs Jet Black Amalgam ink. I colored them with Copic markers and the cut them out with the coordinating dies.

2.jpg

To create the background I cut a piece of Bristol Smooth paper to 9 x 4. I did some ink blending with Distress Oxide inks in the colors Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch, and Black Soot. I sprinkled some water on the blended panel and soaked it up with a paper towel to make some water spots. Next I took a few of the silhouette images from the Tea-rific stamp set and stamped them on the panel with Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide ink.

3.jpg

I adhered my background panel to a card base with my ATG gun. Next I took a long strip of Bazzill Licorice Twist cardstock and cut a wavy line down the center with scissors. I popped up each of those two pieces of cardstock on the sides of my card. I then stamped a sentiment from the Wonderland set on the same black cardstock and embossed it in white. I cut the sentiment out and popped it up on the top of the card.

4.jpg

Using foam tape I popped up all the images that I colored on the card. I used a white gel pen and a glitter brush to add some highlights and details. Finally I added some Raindrop embellishments from Lucy’s Cards with Gina K Designs Connect Glue.
