MFT Birthday Explosion Box

DAY 3 of 3:  Innovation Master

Print

I’m no innovation master, but I do LOVE interactive cards!

Explosion Box

This was the card I was most excited to make – but also the one I was most nervous about.  I had so many ideas in my head, but making it all come together requires a lot of discipline.  I had to talk myself out of getting too wild… “Settle down, Caly…” “No…don’t even think about it…” 😛

When I narrowed the ideas down to execute this card – I took my sweet time.  I colored MANY images and only used what I thought would fit.  To construct the box, you’ll need a 12×12 piece of card stock.  Score it at 4 inches on all sides, then cut the score marks, stopping at the center square.  This box is a 4 x 4 inch box closed, so if you want a 3 x 3 box, start with a 9 x 9 piece of cardstock and score at 3 inches.  The lid works the same, except you’ll want to factor in a 1″ lip and 1/4″ flap for gluing to keep the sides down.

HERE IS THE FINAL PROJECT:

Explosion Box - Opened

The focal point of this card is the paper cake.  I cut strips of 1 1/2″ paper, applied some color using Spun Sugar distress ink and snipped them from one end to the other in fringe style so that I can wrap them to the curvature of a circle to form the tops of each layer of the cake.  I added a scallop border at the top of each layer colored with Cracked Pistachio distress ink.  Once the cake was done, I die-cut the Cheers word die and adhered two layers of white cardstock to make it strong.  I glued two strips of acetate to it and cut two little slits on the top of the cake to hold it up like a cake topper.  I really love how it turned out!

Explosion Box - 3D Cake

Initially, I envisioned a cake with critters and animals all over it.  When I put the cake together and attached it to the center of the card – I realized the cake is no where big enough to make this vision come to life – so I settled with making triangular stands for the gift boxes, bear and hippo so they are able to stand with support.

Lets get into the details of each flap, shall we?

Flap 1:  Magic Slider

Explosion Box - Magic Slider Tab

Explosion Box - Magic Slider Tab 2

I should’ve taken this shot straight on – I promise it is aligned perfectly! What’s better than interactive cards?  Mini-versions, of course!  This was so fun and easy to do.  Makes me giddy!

Flap 2:  Waterfall Fold

Explosion Box - Waterfall Flip Tab

Explosion Box - Waterfall Flip Tab 1

This one was tricky!  I wanted to fit all the elephants on this 4″ x 4″ space without overcrowding it and those ears made positioning difficult but I think it turned out ok.  🙂

Flap 3:  Shaker

Explosion Card - Shaker Tab

Explosion Card - Shaker Tab 1

These tigers are fiercely cute, right?!  I wanted to make a square shaker but didn’t have a square frame – so I settled for this rectangle frame, but I really love it!  It’s more of an accent and doesn’t take away from the rest of the card.

Flap 4:  Peek-a-boo Windows

Explosion Box - Flip Tabs 1

Explosion Box - Flip Tabs

I’ve never done these peek-a-boo windows before and thought this would be a great opportunity to try them out.  I colored the pieces using the same distress inks mentioned above for some interest (Spun Sugar and Cracked Pistachio).  I stamped different short sentiments on the doors to fill the dead space and sequins to act as knobs.

I added little party hats throughout to tie the different flaps together and to make it more cohesive.  How about that gingham patterned paper, though?  I need a few more of those packs on hand!

Here it is one more time so you don’t have to scroll up:

Explosion Box - Opened

EEPPP!!!  The photos just don’t do this card justice.  I really hope you like this card!  I’m so excited about it and I honestly don’t think I could ever make a card that could top this – it’s 5 cards in one!  Good luck to everyone who entered this contest – you are all amazing and talented and I’m so blessed to be a part of this community!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

XOXO,

Day 2 of 3:  Coloring Virtuoso

Print

Welcome back to day 2 of my 2017 Card Design Superstar reveal!  Today’s theme showcases coloring of any medium.  My medium of choice has always been Copics – but I’ve never done a one layer card covered in Copics before.  I had to look to Sandy Allnock for inspiration here because she’s amazing with her one layer cards using Copics.

Farm Friends

I stamped the images using the Farm Friends stamp set.  I even did mirror-image stamping with the lamb/sheep on the right.  I hand-drew the barn on the left but forgot to snap a photo before I colored it.  as you can see….it started as a blank sheet of white paper.  I was so nervous coloring this!

Farm Friends 4

You guys…I’m pretty darn proud of the barn I drew.  I didn’t know what to put in the window there so i decided to put a lamp – that’s appropriate in a barn right? 😉

Farm Friends 1

So much green….and I only used 2 Copic colors to achieve the look above.  To give it some contrast, I added a gravel road and a little bit of sky.  The clouds are created using the colorless marker.

Farm Friends 3

The tractor even has glossy accents over the glass – but the photo doesn’t show it too well.  After coloring all the images, I added some white accents with a white Gelly Roll pen.  There you have it – a one-layer, full Copic-colored card.  I hope you like it!  I tried to be really adventurous with it – had to go over it several times to even out the green pasture and hill.

Farm Friends 2

Please come back tomorrow to see my third and final card – the theme is “Innovation Master.”  Sounds so intimidating but I’m excited to share what I’ve spent so much time working on over the past week.   Thanks for stopping by!

XOXO,

caly-sig

Always Stand By You

DAY 1 of 3:  Clean and Simple

Print

I got the email about MFT’s 2017 Card Design Superstar contest and I’ll be honest – it gave me anxiety.  I was really naive last year.  Super excited and humbled when I didn’t win – but I was not surprised! There were unbelievable entries!  I learned so much though! There are AMAZING crafters and cardmakers everywhere.  As I pick up lettering and begin embarking with traditional calligraphy, I’m blown away by the many different communities of artists.  Sometimes, I wonder if I’m spreading myself too thin.  In my heart, I’m driven to do it all, but physically, I am only one person with 4 kids and a full-time job and that’s not feasible at all.  So I’ve worked really hard…slowly but surely over the past two weeks, coloring and cutting, thinking long and hard about the images I want to use for this contest.  There are 3 themes this year and I’m so glad that they’ve broken it down this way to showcase everyone’s talents and to spread inspiration.  The first card I’m sharing today is in the clean and simple category.

Always Stand by You 1

I think I often struggle with white space – so I’m looking at this card and really wondering if it’s clean enough.  I decided to add some layers and a window to give it interest – with fussy-cut foliage and berries.

Always Stand by You

These giraffes are just too cute!  I colored them with Copics and inked the background with some distress ink.  I love this peek-a-boo window die – the stitching is so delicate and frames images so well.  The bold banner holding the sentiment finishes off my first card for this contest.

Wish me luck!  I’ll be sharing my next two cards before Thursday night when the contest comes to a close.  Please check back tomorrow for the Coloring Virtuoso theme!

XOXO,

caly-sig

Enchanted Iris

Hi, Friends!

The 30 day coloring challenge is going on this month and I’ve been staying up late trying to color.  The My Favorite Things Superstar contest is also going on.  I’m trying to get some cards made for that.  I’m not as hopeful this year – someone slap me because I’m being a Debbie Downer!  One of the card themes is coloring.  While I have confidence in my coloring, I feel like there are not a lot of stamps that would really showcase my coloring.  Sure…there are lots of cute stamps – I just don’t know how to make them better than what others can do with coloring.  Some ideas or motivation would be nice!  Like this amazing iris stamp set by Altenew that I colored for Kathy Racoosin’s coloring challenge.  It’s really fun trying to recreate a flower!

IMG_1914

I colored this lily by Concord & 9th the other day…made a card and forgot to take pictures – so I’m sharing the image I posted on Instagram.  It’s really hard to make it look realistic!  I tried again with the Iris and am happier with how it turned out.  Here’s the image I used as inspiration:

I love coloring with Copics…and I LOVE irises!

Iris 2

I sponged the background with some distress ink in Tumbled Glass and added some sequins to finish off the card.  I feel like coloring is always 95% of my cards.  Once I have things colored, putting it together is so much fun!

Iris

I hope to share more cards as the month progresses – especially my MFT Superstar entries once I have them all done.  Last year, I posted them as I finished, but I think I need to take my time to execute them well.  Wish me luck!

See you all next time!

Amelia Rose

I love it when I get to make baby cards because I get to use soft pastels and all things cute.  I don’t know this little Amelia Rose – but her parents sure are blessed!  And seriously…what an awesome name to have!  I just adore it!  I made this card by request for a friend about 2 weeks ago so I’m hoping it got to it’s destination and that I can share this.  I honestly don’t make time anymore to craft like I used to and most things I share are things I’ve made by request for friends who need one made.  The new 30 day coloring challenged started on September first and I didn’t even realize it.  Being sick and celebrating my 13th wedding anniversary may have something to do with the mind lapse this past weekend also…

IMG_1895

That man right there is my husband.  I’m a lucky girl because he is an amazing father and support system for us all despite his struggles with trying to finish up his last month of residency right now.  Life has been rough on us and he’s been in school our entire marriage.  I’m so glad I won’t have to say that again soon :).

Amelia Rose

Sorry for the tangent…back to the card!  I die-cut a cloud to use as a stencil to create the sponged background.  Then the rest is simple stamping and embossing of the letters.  The cute little monkey was colored using copic markers.  Can you guys what the HARDEST part of this card was?  Those strings!!!  I used gold thread – and they did not want to stay. I ended cutting two little slits on each end to hold the thread in place at the bottom of each balloon but it was still difficult to hold them all in place.  Finally, I added two layers of glossy accents over the pink and mint green letters.

Amelia Rose 1

Hope you enjoyed that!  I’ll try to get more posted soon.  I got some images stamped last night for the 30 day coloring challenge so that’s motivate me to make some cards!  Have a wonderful rest of your week and thanks for stopping by!

XOXO,

Layered Hydrangea

I’ve been keeping myself busy lately with all sorts of last minute projects.  I decided on a whim that I needed to do this Ellen Hutson Pin Sights challenge.  First off…let me start off by saying that Ellen Hutson is one of my FAVORITE places to buy crafting supplies from. Shipping is always quick and I make a loyal order once a month because they reward loyal customers with 10% off!  Anyway, I still don’t know much about the challenge (how often it goes and when), but I wanted to give this one a try.  This months challenge is inspired by this photo:

IMG_1674

I’m pretty literal with these types of things….so I chose colors close to this swatch to make my card using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.

EH PS Challenge - Hydrangea 1

There are only so many ways to stamp this image (at least that’s how my brain works with this set) – so this is the third card I’ve made with this layout.  This time, I stamped a few extra petals so I can layer them on top for some interest.

EH PS Challenge - Hydrangea 3

I embossed the image in black and then water colored everything using the colors in the swatch with a pentel waterbrush.

EH PS Challenge - Hydrangea

The other water color pieces were placed on top to give the flower a 3D look.  I added some silver glitter stickles to the centers and die cut the sentiment to finish off the card. Just a quick and fun card I wanted to share…(fussy cutting watercolor isn’t so fun).

XOXO,

First Day of School 2017

PHEW!  It’s been a CRAZY week!

So many last minute things that I did for the kids and others that I had not intended on doing – but it’s been fun because I had lots of craft time!  Here’s a picture of the kids at the bus stop:

First Day of School Shirts

I know I’ve said in the past that I don’t want to share personal photos – but the main reason I’m sharing this is to show off these cute t-shirts that I designed for the school this year – it was such an honor.  I’m learning more and more everyday how to digitize my work.  I even made their signs digitally this year.  There photos and a hyperlapsed video on Instagram if you’d like to take a look.  Find me by searching “craftincaly.”

First Day of School Bracelets 3

I also handlettered this card for a neighbor as a gift to her daughter.  I think it’s the sweetest gift ever!

Teacher Chalkboard

And finally – I made this card for a neighbor who is returning to work after taking a year off to have her baby.  TEACHERS ARE AMAZING PEOPLE and deserve all the support 🙂

Hope you all had a terrific week!  Until next time…

XOXO,
