Wave interactive card

Hello!  Today is the first day of sneaks for a mini-release of stencils!  I’ve used the wave stencil in a sneaky manner to create this card. I’ve used the stencil on the water, but only partially to create some waves.  In addition, I’ve used the Punny Farm Pigs stamps and die set to create a scene at the beach. My card on Tuesday will show much more of the stencil.

To make the card:

  1. I die cut an A2 sized panel (5.5 inches by 4.25 inches) and taped off certain areas so that I could apply distress ink in a neat manner on the panel.  I used mermaid lagoon distress oxide ink and a color blend I made for the ocean, distress oxide ink Tea Dye for the sand, and distress ink tumbled glass for the sky.
  2. To make the waves, I used Miss Ink wave stencil and either a white gelly roll pen, white acrylic paint or versamark ink and Wow embossing powder in “under the sea” color.  I splattered white acrylic paint and copper acrylic paint with a brush over the sand.
  3. I stamped and die cut all the images from Punny Farm Pigs, as well as copic colored all the images.  I die cut a wave groove into the ocean using Lawn Fawn’s Slide on Over Waves die set; I glued the piece I had die cut on an A2 card base.  Using a My Favorite Things slider piece, I glued the die cut chick to the slider piece and a piece of acrylic that was then glued to a penny.  This provided some weight for the chick to move back and forth without turning upside down.
  4. Finally I adhered some clouds to the sky and the remaining chicks and pigs to the sand.  To make one pig appear buried in the sand, I cut a slit into the panel and cut most of the pig’s body off.  Layering on versamark ink and Sand embossing powder from Hero Arts created a “buried” look.  Finally I applied a double layer of double sided adhesive foam to allow the slider enough room to move back and forth.

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.

Bubble Wiper Card

CBK1CBK2

I have long wanted to make a wiper card, especially after seeing all the amazing inspiration from fellow team member Ali Farmer, her lovely video is here. I love all interactive cards and I feel the more kinds I make, the better I’ll become and hopefully I’ll design some of my own types hopefully.  I didn’t own a “wiper” die when I made this, I simply looked at several videos and made my own.

  1. Cut one panel of cardstock to the dimensions of 7.5 (length) inches by 4.25 (height) inches.  Along the 7.5 length, score at 5.5 inches and again at 6.5 inches.  Make a mountain fold with the folds on this panel.  I blended a custom color of distress oxide ink that I had made (a few drops of mowed lawn added to a lot of broken china) with a cloud stencil from My Favorite Things and the Blendability brushes from Trinity Stamps.
  2. I cut a second panel of cardstock to the dimensions of 7.5 (length) inches by 3 inches (height).  I blended the entire panel with Distress Oxide ink “Mowed Lawn” with the use of the Trinity Blendability brushes.  I then die cut the entire panel multiple times with a grass die that I had (I used Lawn Fawn, but please use any company’s) and then scored the panel along the length at 1 inch and then 2 inches.
  3. I prepared the wiper mechanism by cutting a 1 inch by 1/2 inch rectangle and then scored and folded the rectangle as shown belowIMG_3712.jpg
  4. I cut a 3 inch by 1/2 inch piece of acetate which I stapled to a one side with the corner folded down.  The other scored side was adhered to the back of the grass.  I checked that the wiper mechanism worked before continuing on with the card.
  5. Finally I stamped images and a sentiment from the Bubbles stamp set and copic colored them before adhering them to the card.

Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope you will try to make a wiper card!
