Winter Shaker Card feat Gerda Steiner Designs

Winter Shaker Card feat Gerda Steiner Designs

Hi everyone! It's Laura here and today I am back with a post and a video in which I will show you how to create a snow globe shaker card. I chose the sentiment so that this could be a card good for any occasion, but you can easily switch that and turn this into a winter birthday card, for example.

The stamp set I used today is the Gerda Steiner Designs Snowman Friends stamp set.
I stamped the images on Neenah Solar White 110lb cardstock with Scrapbook.com Premium Hybrid Black ink and I colored them with my Spectrum Noir markers. There are also coordinating dies available for this set, and I will link them down below in case you are interested. I don't have them, though, so I cut the images with my EK success Cutterbee scissors.
Here is a color chart for you as a reference, in case you'd like to reproduce this card.

I then moved on to the shaker. I die cut some white cardstock with the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables, and created an opening with the Lawn Fawn Ready Set Snow Shaker Add-on dies. Before die cutting the shaker window I adhered a strip of patterned paper from the Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Winter paper pad.

I then used more dies from the dies in Ready Set Snow Shaker Add-on set and patterned papers by Lawn Fawn to create the snow globe. For the base of the snow globe I used papers from the Knock on Wood paper pad, and for the sky I used the Beachside paper pad. All the other elements are die cut from white cardstock.
To add interest to the snow hill, I added some shading with a Ranger Blending Brush. I took the brush that I normally used for my blue Distress Oxides and used whatever ink was left on the bristles to shade the bottom of the hill.

For the inside of the shaker I used some Faux Snow and some Studio Katia Chunky Glitter, and I really love the look! Finally, for the sentiment I die cut the word hello from the MFT Hello There Die-Namics out of white cardstock and I glued it to the top left of my card front.

I also decorated the inside of my card with one more snowman from the Gerda Steiner Designs Snowman Friends and with a sentiment from the Foxes stamp set, which I stamped with Memento Ink in London Fog.
I also created a video showing you how to create this easy winter shaker card, you can watch it down below!

Bright and Easy Congratulations Card feat Scrapbook.com plus SALE


Hi everyone! Today I am back with a fun and colorful congratulation card I made using the Scrapbook.com Exclusive DIY Coupons Designer Stamps. This set is really fun and can be used for a variety of projects, and today I decided to use it to create a congratulations card.

I stamped the images in the set multiple times on one of my Scrapbook.com Flat Card Front sheets. These are sheets of Neenah Solar White 80lb cardstock pre cut at a standard A2 size. Sooo convenient!
For the stamping I used the Scrapbook.com Black Premium Hybrid Ink Pad, and for the coloring I used Spectrum Noir markers. I kept the coloring really quick and simple, and went for a rainbow color scheme.


For the sentiment I used the Congrats Heffy cuts, which I die cut out of some Coredinations Smooth Black cardstock. I cut the sentiment twice and stacked the die cuts to create dimension.
I die cut some vellum using the Tonic Studios Circles Layering Dies and used that to separate the sentiment from the background a bit more.


I mounted the card front on one of the Scrapbook.com Cards (these are pre-cut and pre-score sheets of Neenah Solar White 80lb cardstock, and are super handy!) and that finished off my card!


I also created a video tutorial showing the card making process, you can watch it down below or on my YouTube channel. And don't forget to share, like and subscribe if you enjoyed the video! Your support means the world to me! 




Before I go I wanted to let you know that, as I am publishing this post, Scrapbook.com is having its 12 days of Christmas sale, with Cardmaking supplies up to 50% off!

Dream - A Card for the Coloring Lovers feat Little Blue Button


Hi everyone! Today I am really thrilled to share this card with you, that I created as a guest Designer for Little Blue Button Stamps! Their digital stamps are adorable, and I was really happy to have the opportunity to create with them!

The digi I used for today's card is called Dream Charlie, and I really love the style of the illustration and the romantic feel of this design! I printed it on Neenah Solar White 110lb cardstock and colored the image with Spectrum Noir and Copic Markers. I also used Prismacolor Pencils to add detail to the hair. 


I die cut a rectangular panel around the illustration using the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables, and then fussy cut the top portion of the panel with my EK Success Cutterbee Scissors. 
I glued the image on another panel that I die cut with dies from the same set out of one of the papers in the Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Spring paper pad. 


For the background of the card I used one of the papers from the Lawn Fawn Watercolor Wishes 6x6" paper pad. I die cut it to an A2 size with the largest die in the  Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables dies and assembled my card.


For some finishing details I added sparkle to Charlie's bow with a Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Pen, and glued down a few Studio Katia sequins to the top portion of the card.


And that's it for today! A big thank you to Olga for inviting me to guest design for Little Blue Button today, and to you all for stopping by!
Have a great day!

Gift Card Holder feat C.C. Designs


Hi guys! Today is release day over at C.C. Designs, and I am sharing cofee-themed card which doubles up as a gift card holder, featuring the new Coffee and Cookies stamp set! This would make a great birthday card for the coffee (or tea) lover among your loved ones. But let's have a look step by step on how to make this handmade card. 

To begin with, I stamped this adorable deer with My Favorite Things Black Licorice Hybrid ink on some Bristol Smooth cardstock and colored him with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I then die cut the images with the coordinating dies, and added details with a white gel pen. 
 

For the base of my card I used patterned papers from the Doodlebug Cream and Sugar 6x6" paper pad. I die cut the base with the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables dies, and the frame with the C.C. Designs Quad Collage dies.


For the gift card holder I used the Baggie and Tag metal die and another design from the same Doodlebug Patterned paper. I stamped the sentiment on some white cardstock with Memento Dew Drops in Rich Cocoa and used a die by MFT to cut a banner around it. 


I glued everything to a top-folding A2 card base, and that finished off my card. Let's have another look at this adorable little guy! So cute! 


And that's it for today! Don't forget to check out the new C.C. Designs release, as usual it is full of cuteness!
I thank you all so much for stopping by, and I wish you a fabulous day!

DIY Glitter Cardstock - Quick and Easy Christmas Card feat My Favorite Things

DIY-Glitter-Christmas-Card-My-Favorite-Things

Hi everyone! Today I am back with a card and a video showing how to create your own glitter cardstock, and how to use it to make a quick and easy Christmas card.
The images I used today are from the My Favorite Things Jingle all the Way and Happy Pawlidays stamp sets. I stamped them with MFT Black Licorice Hybrid Ink on Neenah Solar White 110lb cardstock and colored them with Spectrum Noir Markers.

mft-jingle-all-the-way


I kept the coloring quick and easy, and stuck to reds mostly, so that the images would stand out against the blue cardstock. Below you can find a chart with the color combinations of Spectrum Noir markers that I used for the images in today's card.


For the front of my card I cut some blue cardstock with the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables dies. I also cut out the sentiment using the My Favorite Things Ho Ho Ho Die-Namics.
I then created my custom glitter paper: I coated some white cardstock with Versamark ink and heat embossed the whole area with WOW! Clear Sparkle Embossing Powder. I repeated this step twice for better coverage, and even more sparkle! And I love the result! So pretty!


DIY-glitter-handmade-card

I assembled all the elements on a top folding A2 card base and moved on to the finishing touches. I added some white highlights with a white Gelly Roll pen and some sparkle to the baubles with a Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Pen. For even more shimmer and dimension I also coated the baubles with Nuvo Drops in White Blizzard.

And this is the card for today! I really enjoyed creating my own glitter cardstock, and will definitely do this more often! The possibilities are endless with this technique!
