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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Pop-up Shadow Box Card | Rainbows & Unicorns

Today I created a whimsical pop-up shadow box card using the Rainbows & Unicorns stamp set from My Favorite Things.

3.jpg

First I cut two pieces of Blue Violet cardstock from Simon Says Stamp to be 5.5 x 7.5. I added some score marks on both ends of both pieces of paper and the .5” and 1” score line. Check out the video to understand this a little better. I also cut a piece of Wild Wisteria cardstock from Gina K Designs to be 5.5 x 5.5. Using the Hero Arts nested circle dies I cut a large circle out of one of the Blue Violet panels and the Wild Wisteria panel.

I stamped some images from the Rainbows & Unicorns stamp set on Neenah Solar White cardstock with Gina K Designs Jet Black Amalgam ink. I colored them in with Copic markers and cut them out with my Scan N Cut. I also stamped a sentiment from the set on a strip of white cardstock. I adhered that sentiment strip behind the Wild Wisteria panel and then glued that panel on top of my front card panel. I added two of the vellum clouds to the back of the front panel so you can see them peeking through the window.

I glued a piece of Really Rainbow patterned paper from Lawn Fawn to my back card panel. I then glued two of the vellum clouds and the rainbow image on top of that. I glued my unicorn image to a strip of sturdy plastic and then sandwiched that strip in between my front and back panels.

Little Boy Dinosaur Card | My Favorite Things

Hello my friends! Today I am sharing a card I designed for a little boy using the Cutieasaurus stamp set from My Favorite Things.

First I stamped the dinosaurs on Bristol Smooth paper with Gina K Designs Amalgam ink. I colored them in with Arteza Watercolor markers and then fussy cut them out using my Scan N Cut.

I picked out a sentiment from the stamp set and embossed it with Alabaster white embossing powder on some Bazzill Licorice Twist cardstock. I then created a 5.5 x 5.5 card base and adhered a piece of Gina K Designs Tangerine Twist cardstock to the front. I mounted the textured panel onto a piece of Gina K Designs Sea Glass cardsotck and then popped that whole panel up onto the card base with foam tape.

To finish up I added a few sequins and a little blush to the dinosaurs cheeks with a Copic marker.
