Succulent Shaker Card

Hello!  Today I decided to make a slim card (dimensions are 8.5 inches by 3.5 inches) that included a long planter that doubled as a shaker element.  The stamp sets that I used today are the Fairy Wonderful and Succulent Sparkle sets. I’m sharing a very quick video today on the Trinity Stamps YouTube channel: link.

Briefly:

  1. I made a slim line card base (8.5 inches by 3.5 inches), an 8.5 inch by 3.5 inch panel out of Lawn Fawn spiffy speckled green cardstock and an 8.25 inch by 3.25 inch panel out of Lawn Fawn spiffy speckled purple cardstock (I used the “b” side).
  2. I copic colored several of the Succulent Sparkle and Fairy wonderful images.  The elongated planter was made by using 2 nested rectangle dies and trimming it down to size (I used a copper colored cardstock that I had in my stash).  I adhered acetate to the planter and then surrounded the edges with double adhesive foam to create a container for the sequins/shaker elements called “Lime-Aid green Confetti“.  First I adhered a piece of cardstock that had been heat embossed with Hero Arts sand embossing powder, then added the confetti and then encased the confetti with the shaker planter.
  3. I adhered all the images and finally adorned the card with a few “Blackberry Bliss Jelly Drop Hearts“.

And that is it- a simple card!  Thank you so much for stopping by!

Bubble Blower Bridge Reveal Card

 

I was introduced to a “bridge card” on Jennifer McGuire’s blog not too long ago and knew that I had to make one.  I decided to see if I could add a handmade reveal wheel mechanism to add even more interest to the card and voila- today’s card is all those things!

I felt that the Rise and Shine stamp set lent itself so well to this technique.  I simply made more of the “fields” to create layers to card!  Perhaps I should have added some farm animals, but instead I grabbed the beloved Bubbles stamp and die set which enabled me to have bubbles floating off toward the farm!

To make the card:

  1. To made the support panel of the bridge card, I cut a 5.75 inch by 5.5 inch of Neenah white cardstock.  Jennifer McGuire has a great video on this here if you want an overview of the project.  I stamped the Rise and Shine scene at the top of the panel and then scored on the 5.75 lengthwise at both ends at the .75 mark and 1.5 mark. I then stamped the scene 3 more times and fussy cut out the 2 fields of the 3 of the fields.  I copic colored all the pieces. The last field I left a long overhand on the bottom and cut a curved slit of 2.5 inches.
  2. To create all the layers I now took all the colored fields and had to cut them to different lengths and score them differently.  The second field layer was cut to a length of 5 inches and then scored at .75 and 1.25 on each end.  The third field layer was cut to a length of 4.5 inches and then scored at .75 and 1 inch on each end.  The final field with the long overhang and slit was cut to a length of 4 inches with no scoring.
  3. I die cut a 2 inch circle out of acetate and then put a hole in the center with a needle.  I then die cut a 1/4 inch circle of cardstock and put a hole in the center of it as well.  I stamped and die cut the bubble blowing critters and bubbles as well as copic colored them. I adhered all the elements on the acetate and then took a brad and poked through the acetate and the 1/4 inch cardstock circle and closed the brad on the cardstock circle side.  On the same cardstock circle I adhered 2 half circles of double sided adhesive foam to adhere to the last field panel on the bottom.  The top of the acetate circle poked through the slit we had cut earlier in the panel.  Finally I stamped and adhered a sentiment to the bottom of the panel.

I hope that you will give this card a try or try to make something similar with these adorable stamp sets!  Thank you for stopping by!

Sea Shaker Card

CBK-July13

 

Today I am up on the Trinity YouTube channel (link to YouTube Video on the Trinity channel, and the video on my channel) showing how to make a sea shaker card using numerous products from the Trinity Stamps new release.  I was so excited to use the Scenes from the Sea stencil and a lot of my video focuses on the use of the stencil to create the backdrop.

  1. I stamped images from the Turtley Awesome, Ocean Reef builder and Mermaid Wishes stamp set and copic colored them.
  2. I blended a light layer of China blue distress ink on an A2 panel of Bristol Smooth Cardstock with the Trinity blending brushes.  Then I used the stencils to blend several colors of distress ink as shown in the video.  After all the layers were made, I used Glitter Kiss glitter paste to put a layer of glitter on each of the sea plants.  Finally I used some Wow embossing powder at the base of each sea plant and heat set it.
  3. Finally I cut the panel to create both a border and inner backdrop.  I adhered a piece of acetate to the border and then adhered double sided foam adhesive.  I glued the critters and some drops.  Placing sequins on the backdrop, I then adhered the border and closed up the shaker card.

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope that you will try out the stencils- they are a ton of fun!

Party with the pigs card

CBK

Today I wanted to make another slim line card and as I always have a need for birthday cards, I decided to use the adorable Punny Farm Pigs, Streamers and Everyday Sentiments stamp sets to create one.

  1. First I made a slim line card with the dimensions 8.5 inches by 3.5 inches out of Neenah solar white cardstock.  I cut a 8.5 inch by 3.5 inch panel and 8 inch by 3 inch panel out of Lawn Fawn cardstock (Spiffy Speckles & Perfectly Springtime Plaid).  I recently got a die that cuts “photos” from Ellen Hutson- so I prepared 3 for the card.
  2. All images were stamped with Gina K black amalgam ink onto Neenah solar white cardstock and then die cut prior to coloring with copic markers.  For the squares within the photos, I stamped the images, created masks, fussy cut the masks and applied them prior to ink blending with a custom distress oxide ink color I had made (few drops of mowed lawn put into a lot of china blue).
  3. I then copic colored all the images (pigs- R00, bow & hats-RV17, cake & present-E50, streamers & duck- Y21 & YR21, balloons- BG11, BG10 & R30) and applied some glitter paste.  Finally I added some sequins and some gold string to finalize the design.

Thank you for stopping by!
