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.

Simple Stamping and Copic Coloring | Birthday Card

Hello all! Today I have a very simple and easy card design using some products from Mama Elephant and Simon Says Stamp.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stop Drop Party stamp set onto a panel of Neenah cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink. Next I stamped some of the pandas from the Little Agenda Panda set on the panel with Gina K Jet Black Amalgam ink.

I colored the panda images with Copic markers. Next I took out the Little Agenda Trains stamp set and picked out the cloud and stars stamps. I stamped them in the background on the panel with Fog ink from Simon Says Stamp.

I glued a piece of Really Rainbow cardstock to an A2 card base. I glued the stamped panel to a piece of black cardstock and then adhered the whole thing to the base. I used a light gray marker to add some shading to the clouds.

To finish up the card I added Wink of Stella glitter to the clouds and stars. I also used a white gel pen to add highlights and details to the pandas.

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.

2.jpg

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.

3.jpg

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.

Rainbow Shaker Card | Pink & Main

Hello crafty friends! Today I am sharing a card created using the Bright Side Stamp and Die set from Pink and Main.

1.jpg

First I stamped the rainbow from the set with Gina K Designs Jet Black Amalgam ink and colored it in with Copic markers. I die cut it with the coordinating die. I also used the die set to cut out some clouds from white glitter cardstock.

I cut out a frame from some scrap white cardstock and glued some acetate to it to make a shaker window. I added doubled up foam tape around the back of the frame and filled up the shaker with clear glitter and micro pearls. I closed up the shaker with some Simon Says Stamp Fog cardstock.

I glued my shaker to an A2 size card base. I then glued the rainbow and clouds on the shake. I stamped a sentiment on white cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink and popped it up on the card.

To finish up the card I went over the sentiment with a glitter brush.

Dreamy Pastel Rainbow Card | Pink and Main

Hello crafty friends! Today I am sharing a sneak peek of some products from Pink and Main’s upcoming release. This release is coming out on May 20th and I adore it, probably because of all the rainbows!

3.jpg

For this card I first used the Rainbow Dies from the release to cut out my pastel rainbow. I cut the rainbow die from six different colors of cardstock to make the colors. I adhered all the pieces of the rainbow together on a paper template.

Next I stamped a sentiment from the new Bright Side stamp set onto a piece of Cotton Candy cardstock from Simon Says Stamp with Dusty Rose ink from Gina K. I then took clouds from that same stamp set and stamped them on that panel with Versamark ink to create a background. I filled in the clouds with a white colored pencil using a gentle pressure.

4.jpg

I glued the background panel to an A2 card base. Next I used a white gel pen and a T-square ruler to add a border along the edge. I popped up my rainbow shape with foam tape on the card. I then die cut 2 clouds from the Bright Side die set and popped them up on both ends of the rainbow.

For the finishing touches I first added some glitter to the two white clouds with Glossy Accents. I then went over the rainbow with a glitter brush. Finally I added some clear sequins across the card.
