Easy Birthday Shaker Card with Matching Tag - C.C. Design Monkeys

Easy Shaker Card with Matching Tag - C.C. Design Monkeys

Hi everyone! Today I am back with a super fun shaker card plus a matching tag and a video tutorial showing how to make them! The stamp set I used is the adorable Monkeys stamp set, part of the latest C.C. Designs release, which I paired it with papers from the Razzle Dazzle collection.

I started by creating the front of my shaker. I picked two designs from the Razzle Dazzle Paper Pad, trimmed one of them to 4.25 by 5.5 " and the other to 2 x 5.5". I glued them together and used the same papers and the Baggie and Tag metal die to create the elements I needed for the tag.

For the shaker window I used the In&Out Rectangle dies. I used the same die to cut some white cardstock and layered the scalloped frames to create a dimensional frame for my shaker window.

I created the shaker background with Nuvo Shimmer Powder in Solar Flare on some Tim Holtz Watercolor cardstock and moved on to my images. As mentioned, these are part of the Monkeys stamp set. I stamped them with Scrapbook.com Premium Hybrid Black ink on Neenah Solar White 110lb cardstock and colored them with Spectrum Noir markers.

I die cut the images with the coordinating dies and assembled my shaker. I used yellow sequins as my shaker elements, and glued everything on a top-folding A2 card base. I adhered the sentiment banners and the monkeys on one layer of foam tape, and did the same on my tag.

I decorated both the card and the tag with some more yellow sequins and, as finishing touches, I coated the birthday balloon with a Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay pen first, and then with glossy accents.

Distress Ink and Distress Oxide Rainbow - Concord & 9th Peek Through Pattern Stamps and Dies


Clean and Simple Friendship Card for Beginners

Hi everyone! Today I am back with two colorful clean and simple cards and my third post for  the February 2019 Concord & 9th Feature Friday. The products I used for this projects are part of the February 2019 release by Concord and 9th, and are the Peek Through Pattern stamps and dies. These are available for purchase individually or as a bundle on the Concord & 9th store.

Clean and Simple Friendship Card for Beginners

The cards that I am sharing today are quick and easy to create, and great for beginners too.
For card number one I started by taking a Neenah Solar White A2 card base and creating a rainbow with Distress Inks on the lower third. I used Dusty Concord, Shaded Lilac, Worn Lipstick, Dried Marigold, Squeezed Lemonade, Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers.

I then used the friend die in the Peek Through Patterns die set to die cut an A2 Neenah Solar White card front. I positioned the die cut on the lower third of the panel, so that I could glue it on my card base with the Distress Ink Rainbow showing through.

I cut the same friend Peek Through Pattern from some black cardstock and I layered it under my white card front, shifting it a little to create a drop shadow effect. I glued both on the card base and stamped the sentiment with Scrapbook.com Premium Hybrid Black Ink. I used some Nuvo Drops in Morning Dew to add some subtle embellishments and that finished off my card.

For the second card I used one of the stripey patterns in the Peek Through stamp set and Distress Oxides to create a stamped rainbow on a Neenah Solar White A2 card front. Shaded Lilac, Worn Lipstick, Dried Marigold, Squeezed Lemonade, Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers.

I then used a Ranger Distress Blending brush and inked up the edges of the panel. For each stamped section I blended the corresponding Distress Oxide. This created a soft look on the edges of my card front.
Next I used the smile die in the Peek Through Pattern dies and die cut the lower third of my stamped panel. I also used the same die to cut some white cardstock. I trimmed off each letter and layered them on mu card front.

I backed the opening left by the die with some black cardstock and mounted everything on an A2 card base. I embellished the card with some Nuvo Drops in Snow Blizzard, and that finished off card number two.

Tall Card with Bright Colors feat C.C. Designs Hello Goodbye



Hi everyone! Today I am back with a super fun card I created with the C.C. Designs Hello Goodbye stamp set. I really love this line of stamps, the illustrations are so unique and I like their quirky style!
Before we proceed with the post, I wanted to let you know that there is a sale going on on the C.C. Designs store, and you can purchase coordinating dies for 65% off their regular price! You can also use code LAURV90 for 5% off your order!

As a first step I started working on my backgrounds, for which I used Rangle Alcohol Inks on Yupo Paper. For the blue background I used Aquamarine and Cloud Blue, for the green one Pistachio and Lime, and for the pink one I used Flamingo and Pink sherbet.


While the backgrounds where aside to dry, I stamped the images from the Hello Goddbye stamp set with Scrapbook.com Premium Hybrid Black Ink and colored them with Copics.  I then die cut them with the coordinating dies.


For my card base I cut some heavyweight white cardstock to 21 x 19.8 cm and scored it at 9.9 cm. I created a DIY stencil by die cutting some acetate with the C.C. Designs Cloud and Grass dies, and blended Distress Oxide in Tumbled Glass with one of my Ranger Blending Brushes to create a subtle cloudy sky.


For the scalloped frames I die cut some white cardstock with the C.C. Designs In & Out Rectangle dies. I glued everything to my card base and moved on to the finishing touches.
I glued some Studio Katia Shimmering Ice Fusions sequins to the sky to bring some subtle sparkle to those areas. I coated the eyes of the critters and the balloons with glossy accents and added just a few highlights with a white Jelly Roll pen.


And that's my card for today! I really hope you guys like it,  I especially enjoy these taller formats, as you get plenty of space for your images!
Don't forget that coordinating dies are 65% off their retail price right now on the C.C. Designs store and that you can also use code LAURV90 for 5% extra off your purchase! I thank you all very much for stopping by and wish you a great day!

Hello Card feat Concord & 9th Hello There Turnabout Stamps and Dies



Hi everyone! Today I am really excited to be back with my second post for the Concord & 9th Feature Friday for the month of February. The card I created today is really bright and cheerful, and was created with the Hello There Turnabout Stamps and Dies. This is such a great set, I had a lot of fun using it and seeing the design come together! Make sure to watch the video at the end of this post to see how to use it!


In order to use this set, you will need a stamping tool like the regular size MISTI or the Tim Holtz Stamp Platform as well as the Turnabout Jig. This, together with the Alignment Aid that comes with the stamp set, will help you position your stamp correctly.


For my stamping today I used Distress Oxides. I used one of my Scrapbook.com card bases and stamped the design in the Hello There Turnabout Stamp with Distress Oxides in Blueprint Sketch, Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio and Twisted Citron. I trimmed down the panel to 4 by 5.25 inches, and trimmed away a strip from the center.


I did some ink blending on one of my Scrapbook.com white card bases. I used Distress Oxide in Blueprint Sketch and added a few water droplets to break dow the solid color and give some interest to the panel.
I then die cut the sentiment hello from the Hello There Turnabout Dies, and created an ombre effect with Distress Oxides in Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron. I stacked it with 4 more die cut hello words to create dimension.


I used a 4x5.25" white cardstock panel as a base for my stamped backgrounds, and glued everything to my card base. I stamped the three hearts from the Hello There Turnabout Stamps with Distress Oxide in Twisted Citron, and that finished off my card.





And that's it for today! Make sure to visit the Concord & 9th blog to see more inspiration with this fun stamp set! And, if you are interested and want to save a little, the February release is also available for purchase as a bundle on the Concord & 9th store!

Window Birthday Card feat Gerda Steiner Designs On the Table

Window Birthday Card feat Gerda Steiner Designs On the Table

Hi everyone! Today I am back with a window birthday card I created with the Gerda Steiner Designs On the Table stamp set and a video tutorial showing how you can make it too!

As a first step I stamped my images with Scrapbook.com Premium Hybrid Ink on Strathmore Bristol Smooth Cardstock. I then colored them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and fussy cut them with my scissors. Coordinating dies are also available, if you are interested.

For my card base I die cut some more Bristol Smooth Cardstock by Strathmore using the Lawn Fawn Larged Stitched Rectangle Stackables. I then die cut an opening in the panel with the My Favorite Things LJD Peek-a-Boo Wonky Windows. This will be the window where the critters will peek through. I blended Distress Ink in Pumice Stone through the My Favorite Things Small Brick Wall Stencil to create a brick wall effect.

For the grassy borders I used the My Favorite Things Grassy Fields Die-Namics and the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables. I blended Distress Inks in Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron to add color and dimension to the borders.

I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the On the Table stamp set on the grassy border that was going to be in the foreground, using Scrapbook.com Premium Hybrid Black Ink.
For the window background I blended Distress Inks in Peacock Feathers and Tumbled Glass on a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock. I added some interest to the panel by spritzing it with water from a Distress Sprayer.

I glued all the elements on my scene and mounted everything on a top-folding A2 card base.
