Bat Slider Halloween Card

CBK-#1

Today I have an interactive card that has bats flying in on the cute Halloween scene. I can’t help using the Boo Crew critters yet again, they are so adorable.

Briefly

  1. I die cut an A2 panel into 2 pieces: a frame and a smaller rectangular panel.  I stamped the smaller rectangular panel with the Haunted House stamp set, made a mask, and then ink blended with wilted violet distress oxide ink.
  2. I die cut 2 grass panels, some clouds and stamped & die cut the critters from the Boo Crew stamp set.  I copic colored the Haunted House and used soft grays to color the critters.
  3. I cut a series of notches into 2 small rectangular pieces and adhered them to the small panel containing the Haunted House.  Using some Stretch Magic jewelry cord, I adhered the end piece of the cord to the back of the panel, threaded 2 bats (2 bat sequins adhered to a bead) on each path and then threaded it through another notch and created another path for 2 bats to move up and down.  This creates a way for each bat to move up and down.
  4. Finally I adhered the small inner panel to the frame with several pieces of double sided foam tape and adhered all the die cut pieces prior to adhering to an A2 card base.

Today I’m up on the Trinity YouTube channel with a video featuring a card made with products from Trinity Stamps and Miss Ink Stamps!  You can find the video here. I used the Trinity Stamps Mermaid Wishes stamp set and the Waves stencil from Miss Ink Stamps.

Briefly, I stamped the mermaid with Memento ink in tuxedo black on Neenah solar white cardstock and then fussy cut it and then copic colored it as shown in the video.  I used versamark ink to ink up the stencil on Lawn Fawn acetate sheets and then used several wow embossing powders and a heat gun to heat emboss the waves on the stencil.  I cannot say enough good things about the Lawn Fawn acetate- it holds up to heat from a heat gun and does not warp!  I then fussy cut the acetate sheets.  Not having white embossing powder (I only have the puffy kind), I had to improvise and use Hero Arts white unicorn ink and pearl white embossing powder to heat emboss my sentiment on navy cardstock.  A few clouds from the Trinity Stamps Puffy Cloud embellishment mix and a frame cut from antique gold cardstock finished the card. The waves move back and forth when you pull the tab- you will be able to see it best on the YouTube video!

Please stop by Instagram today; Trinity Stamps and Miss Ink Stamps are having an Instagram hop filled with fun projects and prizes.

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.

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!

Pendulum rocker coffee card

CBK

I love interactive cards, even though I admittedly always have a hard time making them the first time. I persist though, because I think they are just so much fun!  Today’s card comes after seeing an amazing pendulum card rocker card from Amanda at Pear Blossom Press; her video is very thorough and I encourage you to watch it here. I will succinctly detail the how-to below and here is a brief video I made on how the card works.

  1. Two circles (5 inch diameter) were cut out of heavy weight cardstock (110 lb) with a Brother scan n cut (I don’t have a 5 inch circle die) and scored down the middle.  One circle was folded with a very soft fold along the score line (do not do a hard crease) and then the front bottom half was brush blended with tattered rose Distress Oxide ink using a Trinity Stamps blendability brush.  With a craft knife cut an inch slit in the middle of this circle. Set aside.
  2. I heat embossed the caffeine molecular symbol from the Brewtiful Stamp set with clear embossing powder on Lawn Fawn’s Spiffy Speckles yellow cardstock and then adhered to the second circle. On the lower half of the second circle (with the adhered cardstock), put a generous layer of double sided adhesive foam before adhering to the back part of the first circle (which has been folded over and ink blended).  Having a foam layer allows the pendulum mechanism to freely move, which would not occur if you simply glued the 2 circles together.
  3. I stamped all the images with Gina K black amalgam ink and cut all the images by hand. I kept the copic coloring of the images very basic, flowers (E000, R00, C0), coffee cup and berries (R32, R30 & R00) and the leaves (G46, G43). The sentiment and coffee steam from the Brewtiful Stamp set were heat embossed with Wow Metallic Copper embossing powder on heavy weight vellum and cut by hand.  I also cut a small part of a doily and placed it on front of a small rectangular panel of the same Lawn Fawn cardstock.
  4. The pendulum mechanism is simply a penny hot glued to a thin rectangular strip of paper which is first threaded through the slit and then adhered to a circle.    Thereafter adhere the coffee cup image to the circle in the middle of the card.  Place some double sided adhesive foam on the rectangle panel with the doily to again give the pendulum mechanism the ability to work.

I hope you enjoyed my take on the pendulum rocker card- I will definitely be making one of these again in the near future!

Today I’m up with a new video, you can find the YouTube video here .  It is a take on a lantern that I made a few weeks ago.  I love to extend the use of a card by transforming it  something interactive.  I hope that the user will put a tea light/votive candle and use the card as intended!  Full details of the process can be found in the video.
