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.

Ok! Let’s get to the card making! I stamped a bunch of the images from the Celebrate Life stamp set with black ink on Neenah white cardstock. I colored in the images with the Nuvo alcohol markers and then cut them all out.

1.jpg

I picked out the “happy birthday” sentiment from the Celebrate Sentiments stamp set and stamped it onto a large strip of white cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink. I then adhered that strip onto a panel of patterned paper. Using a white gel pen I went around the edge of the patterned paper with dashed lines.

3.jpg

I arranged all of the images on the panel and then glued them down with either Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive or foam tape. I then glued the whole panel onto a card base. I added highlights to all of the stamped images with a white gel pen.

4.jpg

For the finishing touches I first used Nuvo Crystal Glaze on the balloon, the cherries, and the circles on the cake. Next I added some sparkle here and there with a glitter brush. Finally I added a whole bunch of sequins on the background to make this card really look like a real crazy party.

Cute Little Backpack Cards | Spellbinders Small Die of the Month August 2019

Hey y’all, I hope you are doing well! Today I have some cute back to school cards created with the August 2019 Spellbinders Small Die of the Month Club. This die set was so much fun to use I could just make one card so I made three!

11.jpg

This kit comes with everything you need to make a tiny little backpack, a few sentiments, and some knick-knacks to put inside! Yup, that’s right, you can put things inside the backpack! I highly recommend you give the video above a watch to see exactly how there are put together.

1.jpg

For the first card I used Cotton Candy cardstock from Simon Says Stamp, Neenah white cardstock, rose gold paper, and Really Rainbow patterned paper in order to make the backpack.

10.jpg

The background paper for this card is from the Honey Bee Stamps Over the Rainbow paper pad. I glued that onto an A2 card base and then adhered the backpack onto that.

8.jpg

For the inside of the card I created crayons out of a bunch of different colors of Simon Says Stamp cardstock and a piece of paper out of some Really Rainbow Lawn Fawn patterned paper. The inside sentiment was cut with some of the dies that come in the die kit.

9.jpg

The sentiment on the outside of the backpack comes from the Simple Sentiments No. 1 stamp set. I stamped that with Gina K Designs Jet Black Amalgam ink onto a strip of Neenah white cardstock and then popped it up with foam tape. To finish up this card I went around the edge of the background paper with dashed lines using a white gel pen. I also went over the white parts of the backpack with a glitter brush.

4.jpg

For the next card I used Plum cardstock from Hero Arts, Buttercream cardstock from Fun Stampers Journey, rose gold paper, and Fly and Scrap patterned paper in order to make the backpack. The background patterned paper come from the Really Rainbow paper pack.

3.jpg

The sentiment on this card comes from the Tiny Words Birthday stamp set. I stamped it with black ink onto the Buttercream cardstock.

7.jpg

On this last card I used Gina K Designs In the Navy cardstock, Doodlebug patterned paper, black cardstock, and a holographic silver paper.

5.jpg

On the inside is a notebook made with Over the Rainbow patterned paper, black cardstock, and white cardstock, I also have some glasses made with black cardstock and three crayons made with Lipstick Red, Audrey Blue, and Orange Peel cardstock from Simon Says Stamp.

6.jpg

The sentiment on the outside of the card is the same as the sentiment on the first card. The sentiment on the inside of the backpack comes from the Tiny Words stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. To finish the card I went over the black parts on the backpack with a glitter brush.

12.jpg

These cards were so fun to create and would make awesome back to school cards for any age. I also think they could be used for things like graduation or leaving for college cards and you could stick some money in the pocket.

2.jpg

I found these little backpacks to be a wonderful way to show off some of my favorite patterned paper!

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.

3.jpg

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.

Fun Back to School Card | Spellbinders August 2019 Large Die of the Month

Hello my friends! Today I have a really fun back to school card design using the new Large Die of the Month club from Spellbinders. This die set lets you create a clipboard, scissors, a pen, a pencil, and a paperclip.

1.jpg

I used the largest die from the set to make my card base out of Neenah Desert Storm cardstock. I then cut the paper for the clipboard out of Really Rainbow patterned paper. I cut the metal clip parts of out gold paper. I also cut all the pieces to create two pencils and a paper clip.

4.jpg

I glued together all of the pieces in order to create the clip board. I used a combination of liquid adhesive and foam tape for the clip on the clip board to give it dimension and make it look realistic. I also adhered the paper clip and one of the pencils.

2.jpg

For the first half of the sentiment I used a die from the August Small Die of the Month club. I cut it out of black cardstock and glued it to the paper with Gina K Designs Connect Glue. The second part of the sentiment comes from the Amazing stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. I stamped that using Versafine Onyx Black ink. I then went over the die cut sentiment with a glaze from Fun Stampers Journey. With the sentiment finished, I glued the second pencil to the card filling up some of the space next to the words.

3.jpg

I took out an A2 size panel of Gina K Designs In The Navy cardstock and glued a strip of Lawn Fawn Really Rainbow cardstock along the bottom edge. I then adhered my clipboard card base on top of that panel. For the final touches on the card I first added a row of Tiny Hearts embellishments under the sentiment. Finally I went over the barrels of the pencils with a Spectrum Noir clear sparkle pen.
