Spring/Easter Cards

So I didn’t win the MFT 2016 Card Design Superstar contest-but some truly amazing, deserving, talented people did!

Anyway – today I’m going to share a few more Splitcoaststampers cards I made from March for “The Little Things” theme.

The first card is a simple layered floral card that I stamped in white ink and colored over using Prismacolor colored pencils.  Not much to say about it!

penelopes-blossoms-2

I will list supplies below ūüôā

My second card is a cute Easter shaker card using another stamp set by Lawn Fawn. I stamped and colored the images using copic markers and used some distress ink to add color to the top panel before adding my cut-outs.

The egg is on the inside of the card so the shaker portion is see-through through both top panels.

Phew! 3 months down and 3 more to go!  I hope you like these cards!

XOXO,

YOU are Absolutely Fabulous!

Thanks for tuning in for my third and final card for the 2016 Card Design Superstar Contest by My Favorite Things!

Print

When I thought about entering this contest last week – I had only planned on making ONE card. ¬†I can’t believe I’ve made 3 cards in 2 days!!! ¬†That’s a lot for me these days! ¬†I’ve had to work on them in 10 min increments and late into the night but they’re all done and I can’t be happier that I’ve done 3 cards – each unique and different to show MFT who I am as a card designer.

absolutely-fabulous-1

I honestly had no idea where I was going with this card. I went through all my MFT products and knew I wanted to use the new Geometric Greenery stamp set – so I decided I’d want to use the Homespun dies as an accent. ¬†I also decided I wanted to use the Absolutely Fabulous dies because I had never used them before so I just threw it all together and am glad it worked out! ¬†PHEW!

absolutely-fabulous-3

At first, I wanted to in-lay the word fabulous, but it didn’t stand out enough to me – so I applied a heavier coat of distress ink over it and propped it up on some white craft foam. I LOVE IT!

absolutely-fabulous

I also LOVE distress ink. SERIOUSLY – it turns all my white paper into magical colors!

absolutely-fabulous-2

And how about those pretty leaves?! I colored them using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. The top panel is Canson XL watercolor paper by the way – and it took the ink blending particularly well! I was worried about it when I first started!

You are ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS¬†for following along – thank you for all your support! ¬†Again – WISH ME LUCK! I WANNE BE A SUPERSTAR! ūüėÄ

XOXO,

Welcome back! ¬†Thanks for staying tuned to see my second card for the My Favorite Things’ Card Design Superstar Contest! ¬†I created this card using ONE
simple die. ¬†THAT’S RIGHT! You don’t need a fancy die – you just have to be BRAVE. ¬†I took lots of photos so if you want to see the process – keep reading! ūüôā ¬†This card folds and fits in an A2 (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″) envelop.

christmas-elf-scene-7

I started with a piece of white cardstock that is 4 1/4″ x 7″ – scored 1.5″ from each end. I didn’t know what I was going to do so I scored it first. ¬†If you want to ink blend like I did – you can get a cleaner look by blending color first, then scoring. I chose Spun Sugar, Dried Marigold and Tumbled glass to achieve the sunset colors above.

christmas-elf-scene-6

I centered the die over this panel and made the first cut – don’t worry! I know it’s not long enough to cut through the entire 7″ panel! The first cut will guide you to cut the ends – I promise! ¬†Once you cut the center, just line up the die with one end to cut the rest- you can feel it sit in the previous cut like it’s meant to be :). Repeat with the other end.

christmas-elf-scene-5

Using the same die and a flatter die from the same die set, I cut out two hills from lengths of 4 1/2″ – you can make the height however high you want, then added some Pumice Stone ink to make it look like dirty snow. Snow is dirty when stepped it. And color gives it depth. hehe. Score 1/4″ from each end – this is where you’ll put your adhesive to add them to the previous panel to make this card 3D.

I’m old school and still have some sticky strip – it’s not the stuff you can easily tear. It’s ok – use what you have! ¬†I put one side down, making sure it’s lined up with the bottom of the card. See photo above. Once that is adhered, leave it laying flat and remove the backing from the other two “hills” and just fold over the right panel. This will ensure it sits in the right place perfectly and can fold flat to put in an envelop if you want to mail it. ¬†You have your card base – now you can decorate it how you want! Oh – and if you haven’t noticed- I flickered some water on this panel to add water blots to give it a “snowfall” background too.

christmas-elf-scene

I colored an elf and christmas tree using Copic markers and added some embellishments using a Sakura White Gelly Roll pen and some Marvy Snow Marker embossing liquid to create the fur on the elf’s hat and sleeves.

christmas-elf-scene-2

AHHH!!! Isn’t he cute?!? ¬†I just love this card so much!

christmas-elf-scene-1

I hope you enjoyed it! Please stay tuned – I will post my final card for the contest TOMORROW!!! WISH ME LUCK! I really WANNE BE A SUPERSTAR!

XOXO,

Confessions of a Wannabe Superstar

Did my title catch your attention? It’s true – I have lots of confessions. I’m a terrible self-critic. I sell myself short a lot. STOP IT, you say? UGH….I know….I know….!!! I really can’t help myself! When I was asked to be a part of the design team with Splitcoaststampers, I was sooo honored – I still can’t believe that I was a part of that! ¬†At moments I felt like I wasn’t going to make it through it and had serious doubts initially because I was very pregnant and didn’t think I could make so many cards and keep my personal blog and YouTube channel up to date. I just poured all the time I had into it and still haven’t recovered. ¬†It was such a wonderful experience and I really have no regrets! ¬†Having a newborn is a full-time gig! ¬†I still have 5 months of cards to post and I feel like I will never finish doing that – I just wish I had more time! ¬†I am so distracted while working and WISH I could craft instead…and I’ve been consumed by this contest by My Favorite Things:

Print

 

Last year – I had even more self doubt than I do now. I don’t know if you all follow other blogs and try to leave a comment for a 1/3000 chance to win a $25 gift voucher or you tag friends on Instagram to win giveaways. I do….and then I wonder why I even bother?! ¬†HAHA. I’m not complaining – I promise! I’m laughing at myself and all of us in the stamping community that LOVE creating and sharing our passion so much – we get sucked into¬†everything that is posted. It’s because I desire so much to be a part of something bigger. I don’t want to JUST make cards – I want to inspire others and feel like I’m actually reaching people. ¬†I get disappointed and often feel like I’m not good enough – anyone else out there feel that way?! Well…I’m going to stop that right now because I WANNA BE A CARD DESIGN SUPERSTAR!!! I really really do!

We are able to share 3 of our designs using MFT stamps and die-namics. The contest ends Thursday night so I’m going to post one every night for the next 3 nights and I hope you’ll follow along to see what I’ve created!

My first card is an interactive card I made using the Beary Special Birthday set.

surprise-bd-8

I stamped the image twice and cut it apart (leaving off the bear’s paws on the gift box) in order to make the card interactive. You’ll see what I mean in my next few photos. ¬†The bear’s ears stick out a big – so I stamped the other presents to help hid his cute ears.

surprise-mft-challenge-1

SEE?!? You pull on the tab and you reveal the bear! OK – maybe I’m a bit proud of myself. Just a teeny tiny bit. My husband thinks it’s genius but he’s a little biased. ¬†ūüėÄ

surprise-mft-challenge-2

Peek-a-boo!

surprise-mft-challenge-3

SURPRISE!!!

Let’s talk about the rest of the card, shall we? ¬†I colored the background with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers (man…that’s a mouthful!), spritzed it with some water and let it air dry. I flicked some plain water on it, let it sit for a few seconds, then used a piece of paper towel to soak up the excess to get a speckled background. Color, get it wet, dry, get it wet, soak up extra water. Got it?! LOL – we make it complicated!

I stamped the balloons, colored them, then covered them in glossy accents. You have to…to make them shiny! It’s fun-you have to do it! Do it!!! ¬†To make the banners and pennants, I used distress ink and die cut the pennants using MFT’s Stitched Alphabet Banner die-namics. The word “SURPRISE!” is embossed with white. I LOVE the Wonky Rectangle dies – it finishes off so many cards for me! ¬†I also decided to mat the piece on some¬†Gold Sparkle¬†Card Stock¬†by MFT too. See my supplies below.

I hope you all liked this! Please tune in for the next two days to see the other two cards I’ve created! I’m excited about them! I know I’m teasing you but I didn’t want to put all three of these cards in one post! I won’t be as silly tomorrow – I’m hoping to go to bed early tonight now that I am done making these cards… ūüėõ

XOXO,

Floral 40th Card-in-a-box

Hello again!

Today is my neighbor and friend, Kerri’s birthday! I’ve been working for a few weeks now what I’m going to do for her 40th birthday. I’ve gotten a few new stamp sets and really wanted to use them. I started out with the Foxy Friends stamp set and Fox builder punch from Stampin’ Up!’s new catalog.

I put together a few foxes using the fox builder.

img_5906

 

They’re super cute but at this point, I had not decided what I wanted to do yet. Then I started playing with the Foxy Friends stamp set. I stamped a bunch of images – then used my Brother Scan N’ Cut 2 to cut the images out. No more fussy cutting (unless I don’t feel like starting up the machine).

img_5907

Once I got all of this cut out – I KNEW I wanted to do a card-in-a-box. ¬†Ah! It’s been a LOOONNNG time since I’ve made one and I got really excited!

There are MANY templates on pinterest. Here’s the one I made for myself (please note that the height of the box should be 5.5 inches – not 6. Sorry for my typo!¬†card-in-a-box-pop-up-template¬†(click to view).

Here’s my card – It’s so cute! While I was putting it together – I decided that this card is not suitable for a 4oth birthday, but I knew exactly which direction I wanted it to go and who I wanted the recipient to be.

foxy-friends-card-in-a-box

Adorable right?! And full of encouraging sentiments. I hope the recipient enjoys it! ¬†Now – how about that 40th card! I wanted to change it up a bit for more display space – so I looked for a tutorial on how to make a card-in-a-box card that sat on it’s side (aka – a rectangle card-in-a-box. ¬†For the card below – the box is made using a base that’s 4 1/4 x 12″, scored at 2″, 5 1/2″, 7″, and 11″. Turn 90 degrees and score at 2″. ¬†The 2″ flap once you cut them down will be the top part of the card that folds down. ¬†For the inserts, cut 2 4 11/16″ x 1″ strips and score at 5/8″ from each end. ¬†If you’d like detailed video – here’s one I watched: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/239042692697550254/.

I had no idea what I was going to do for this card – so I went to my stamp stash and started pulling all things floral and butterflies. ¬†ūüėÄ ¬†Here’s what I came up with! I hope you LOVE it as much as I do!!!

kerri-40-card-in-a-box-2

Don’t worry! As always – the supplies will be listed below. This was NOT as difficult as it seems. I felt that the Foxy Friends one above was more difficult! The gold on this card just speaks for itself so I didn’t feel the need to decorate the other flaps.

kerri-40-card-in-a-box

Kerri loves blush pink, tiffany blue and gold Рso I tried my best to incorporate these colors.  EEEK!!! I cannot WAIT to give this card to her!

kerri-40-card-in-a-box-1

HAPPY BIRTHDAY KERRI!

XOXO,

I have another card I did today that I’m excited to share later on this week – stay tuned!!!

Color My World + My Peeps

Hi Everyone!

I’m sitting alone in my garage trying to sell some stuff this weekend and thought I would use this opportunity to post again. I’m going to share two cards today fr0m March (for April). ¬†The theme, to remind those who are just joining, is “The Little Things.” So these cards are fun and centered around little people, critters or things.

color-my-world

The first card is this colorful card using a very inexpensive stamp from Lawn Fawn. I die cut some clouds out of velum and sewed them on the card front using my sewing machine. Then I colored these crayons and placed them randomly on the card.  My son, Evan, loved this card!

color-my-world-1

This is fun and perfect for kids!

color-my-world-2

My second card is more Easter-related. It’s a Peep stamp set by Simon Says Stamp. ¬†I decided to do some tone-on-tone stamping for a light background and simply stamped the images and die cut them out. The grass is made using some fringe scissors – not much to it. I’m a little ashamed of my efforts on this card. ¬†(SHAME).

my-kind-of-peep-1

Sometimes the visions we have in our heads don’t quite execute the way we think they will. But it’s still cute, right?

my-kind-of-peep-2

Ok – I’ve got some customers! See you all again soon!

A Little Bundle

The second month of my term with Splitcoaststampers was March – I can’t believe this card was made 6 months ago! The theme was “The Little Things”. I had just gotten this stamp set by Lawn Fawn and knew I wanted to make a card using it immediately. It’s so cute and simple but you can really spice it up with color!

I stamped all the images using my MISTI to make sure it all stamped well and crisp. I then colored the tiny clothes with Copics. Once done coloring, I masked off these images and then used distress ink to ink the background. THAT’S IT! So simple.

I usually don’t double mat – but I felt this card needed more pink..:)

This is a short post – but I hope you enjoy it anyway!

Thanks again for stopping by!
