Texture Pastes Three Ways | ModaScrap Fluffy


Hi everyone! Today I am back with a friendship card and a video tutorial
showing three different ways to use the new ModaScrap Fluffy! I really love these new products,
they are fun to use and look gorgeous! If you missed our release showcase video, where we
showed the entire new range, you can watch it here!


Coming back to the card, the design papers I used are all part of the ModaScrap Best Friends 6x6"
collection. I used the Dashing Rectangles dies to die cut the background, and for the circular
wreath and its center I used the beautiful Deco Circles dies.


The lovely feathers on the card are part of the ModaScrap Feathers stamp set. I embossed them on
white cardstock with white glitter embossing powder and shaded them with Distress Inks. I
blended Peacock Feathers and Cracked Pistachio on the larger ones, and Bundled Sage and Old
Paper on the smaller ones. I used the Friends stencil to apply my inks, and then coated them with
the new Gelly to add gloss and shimmer.



For the sentiment I used the Friends stamp set. I stamped it with Versafine Onyx Black ink and
embossed it with clear embossing powder. I added some stars around it using the New Baby
stencil.


The colors of Fluffy that I used for today's card are Brillant White, Apple Green and Sunshine
Yellow, each of them added to the card with a different technique. I don't want to spoil anything,
so make sure to watch the video tutorial to find out the three different ways in which I used them!

Ocean Background with Nuvo Shimmer Powders | Studio Katia Under the Sea


Hi everyone! Today I am back to share with you an easy and fun ocean themed card, featuring the Studio Katia Under the Sea stamp set. There is also a video tutorial at the end of this post, showing you the entire card making process!

To create a quick ocean background I used shimmer powders on a sheet of watercolor cardstock, that I had die cut with the Studio Katia Darling Ribbon & Frames dies. I used Atlantis Burst, Blue Blitz and Solar Flare.


For the card front, I die cut some white cardstock with the Studio Katia Darling Ribbon & Frames dies first, and then I die cut two openings with the Scallop Oblong dies, also by Studio Katia.


The images I chose are from the Studio Katia Under the Sea stamp set. I stamped them with black ink on Neenah Solar White 110lb cardstock and colored them with Spectrum Noir markers. I then die cut them with the coordinating dies.


Once the background was dry, I added some extra texture and shimmer with Nuvo Glimmer Paste in Moonstone and the Brush Stroke Waves stencil. I glued everything to a top folding A2 card base, raising the front panel and the sea creatures on one layer of foam tape.


To finish off the card, I glued some iridescent bubbles on my card front - these were just the perfect embellishment for my ocean themed card!
As I mentioned at the beginning of the post, there is a video tutorial for you, showing how to create this card. And don't forget to subscribe to my channel for more inspiration!

Clean and Simple Card | SugarPea Designs Mix It Up Challenge


Hi everyone! Today I am back with a fast, clean and simple card I created for the SugarPea Designs Mix it Up challenge! You can play along for a chance to win a gift certificate to the SugarPea Designs  store - for more details make sure to visit the SugarPea Designs blog


I was inspired by the sketch for this challenge, and I decided to turn it around and to use circles instead of hexagons. 


I created a little scene using the TreeScape dies, by SugarPea Designs. This cut out a hill, which I inked up with Distress Inks in Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron.
For the sky I used Tumbled Glass and a tiny touch of Salty Ocean. 


The stamp set I used today is the Strike up the Band stamp set, by SugarPea Designs. I stamped it with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink and colored it with Spectrum Noir makers. I added some details with a white gel pen and then die cut it with the coordinating dies.


I die cut the circles for my design from some vellum with the SugarPea Designs Zig Zag Stitched Circles and added some shimmer to them with a Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay pen.
I then stamped the sentiment on my card base, which was die cut from white cardstock with the Card Front Element Builder II dies, and assembled my card.



And that's it for today! Make sure to check out how to play with us in the Mix it Up challenge - we look forward to seeing what you create!

Cardmaking Inspiration with the Spellbinders Artomology collection by Jane Davenport


Hi everyone! Today I am back with some inspiration using the new Spellbinders Artomology collection by Jane Davenport! I am in love with the style of these prodcuts, and I was really thrilled to get the opportunity to play with them! And , as I was so excited, I made two cards.


For my first card I used the gorgeous Marcia Makeover Etched Dies. I die cut the outline from black cardstock, and the rest from some Bristol Smooth cardstock. To add color to the hair I used the Chilled Pastell Palette, which is absolutely stunning! I love the packaging and the pastels are really smooth and pigmented! I applied them with some dual tip foam applicators like these ones, using different colors from the palette.



For the face I used Distress Ink in Tattered Rose, and I created a pearl necklace with Nuvo Drops.
The card base was cut out of black cardstock, and measures 9x4 inches. The background panel is 0.25" smaller than the card base, and I used Distress Inks in Carved Pumpkin, Wild Honey, Dried Marigold and Squeezed Lemonade to create a watercolor ombre effect.



I decorated the card with some floral die cuts. These were cut using the smaller dies in the Marcia Makeover Etched Dies and colored wit the Chilled Pastell Palette.
For the sentiment I used dies from the Spellbinders Sew Sweet Sentiments set, and that finished off my first project.



For my second project I used the Mermaid Tail Swatch Stamp and Die Set, which is another fantastic product from the Artomology collection by Jane Davenport! This will work great to create ink swatches - and I am plannig to do that in the future - but for today I wanted to use it to create a shaker card.


I started by stamping the mermaid tail on white cardstock three times, and I then used Spectrum Noir markers for my coloring. I die cut the images with the die in the set, and I trimmed off the top part. I also die cut the centers to create the window for my shakers. The shaker elements are some confetti and some sead beads from my stash.





For the card background I die cut some Bristol Smooth cardstock with the Lucky Clouds dies by Spellbinders. I created an ombre effect with some of the colors in the Chilled Pastell Palette, which I applied with some make up sponges.



I mounted everything on black A2 base, and for the sentiment I used one of the dies in the Spellbinders May Card Kit of the Month.
For some finishing touches I used Nuvo Drops in Simply White, Glossy Accents on the sentiment, and a white Sakura Gelly Roll Pen to create highlights on the mermaid tails.



And that's it for today! I really had fun creating with these products, they are so unique and beautiful - and I hope you enjoyed my inspiration too!
Thank you all so much for stopping by, and have a great day!

Rainbow Shadow Box Card with Lawn Fawn | Save the Crafty YouTuber Video Hop


Hi everyone! Today is a very special day, because it is the third edition of the Save the Crafty YouTuber video hop! This is an event where many talented cardmakers come together and share lots of fun and inspirational video tutorials - and there are giveaways too! I will tell you more about it in the video, but for now let's have a look at today's card.


I fell in love with the new Lawn Fawn release, and I decided to create a shadow box card with the A Little Sparkle stamp set and the Shadow Box Rainbow Add-On Dies!
I stamped my images on Bristol Smooth cardstock with Scrapbook.com Premium Hybrid Black ink and did some super easy watercoloring with Distress Oxides, which I blended with a Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay pen.



For the base of the shadow box I used the Lawn Fawn Shadow Box card die, and one of the papers in the Lawn Fawn Really Rainbow Paper pad. I also used the scallop rectangle die in the Lawn Fawn Shadow Box Ocean Add-On dies to cut the opening in the front of the shadow box.



To create the clouds and the rainbow, I die cut some Bristol Smooth cardstock with the Shadow Box Rainbow Add-On Dies. I added color and shading to the die cuts with Distress Oxides and my Scrapbook.com Blending Brushes (loooove!).
I also added sparkle to the clouds with Perfect Pearls, and to the rainbow with a Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Pen. 


For the Sun I used the Lawn Fawn Sun and Moon dies, and again Distress Oxides and Scrapbook.com blending brushes. I assembled the shadow box, and that finished off my card! Isn't it super cute?


As you read at the beginning of the post, this card is part of a video hop with giveaways. You can watch the video down below to find out more about the card and the prizes you can enter to win!

Double Slider Scene Card feat Lawn Fawn and Waffle Flower - Scrapbook.com Guest Post


Hi everyone! Today I am really thrilled to be guesting on the Scrapbook.com Blog with a tutorial showing how to create a double slider card!
I love interactive cards, I think they are really fun and have such a wow effect! I also love scene cards, so today I paired the two for this cute and whimsical double slider!

I started by stamping the images in the Waffle Flower Little Fairies stamp set. I used Scrapbook.com Premium Hybrid Black ink and Neenah Solar White card. I stamped quite a number of images because I wanted to have a nice and full scene, and I used my Mini MISTI to speed up my stamping.


For the coloring I used Nuvo Alcohol Markers. I went for some simple coloring and then die cut all the images with the Little Fairies coordinating dies and my Big Shot Express die cutting machine.


I then started working on my slider card. I used the Lawn Fawn Double Slider Surprise dies to cut some more Neenah Solar White cardstock. The two rounded rectangles in the picture below will be the sides of my slider card, and the other die cut will be the central panel. This die set is really great - it makes creating slider cards so easy!

I did some ink blending on those panels with Distress Oxides in Worn Lipstick, Shaded Lilac and Blueprint Sketch to create a sky for my scene. To blend my inks I used the Ranger Mini Ink Blending Foams. 
I added some stars by diluting Perfect Pearls in the color Perfect Pearl with some water, and creating droplets with a paintbrush.


Next, I created some grassy borders. I combined the same dies from the Lawn Fawn Double Slider Surprise set that I used for the sky with the Heffy Doodle Grassy Lass Border set. I added color and shading to the grass with Distress Oxides in Lucky Clover and Twisted Citron


I then went ahead and assembled the scenes. 

Before gluing everything down, I used one of the smaller dies in the Lawn Fawn Double Surprise to die cut two circular notches out of the central panel (see picture below).
While assembling my scenes, I made sure to leave some empty space on the sides of the two rounded rectangles - these panels will be the sides of the slider card, and the areas that I left empty will not show once the slider card is open. You can see clearly what I mean in the pictures of the completed projects, included in this post.

If you prefer, you could instead adhere the grassy borders to the sky at this stage, and glue the images only after having assembled the slider. 


At this point, I could start putting the slider element together. 
To complete the slider I needed to die cut another rectangular panel like the larger one I decorated above. This will be the back of the slider. 
I also needed to die cut some more white cardstock to create the "pivot" for my slider. This will sit between the front and the back panels and will allow the sides to actually slide. To this purpose, I cut a stripe of clear packaging (you could use stamp packaging or a shopping plastic bag). The strip is roughly 2 1/4" wide, and long enough to "hug" the slider pivot panel. 
All the dies used are part of the Lawn Fawn Double Slider Surprise set.



I will now guide you step by step on the assembly of the slider mechanism.
First, use some double sided tape to wrap the acetate strip around the slider pivot. You don't want it to be too loose, but it needs to have some slack so that it can move freely. The acetate is glued to itself, not to the paper.


Slide the acetate, so that the seam with the tape is all the way to the left edge of the pivot (a little further to the left compared to what you see in the picture above). Add some double sided adhesive in that same position and use it to adhere one of the slider sides. 

Make sure that the left edge of the slider side is aligned with left the edge of the pivot (to the central portion, not to the strips at the top and bottom of the pivot). Adhere the side face up. 


Next, flip over the pivot. The panel we have just adhered is now facing the work surface. 
Add some double sided tape to the acetate, as close as possible to the left edge of the pivot (see below). 


Take the second slider side and adhere it face down to the acetate strip, aligning its edge with that of the slider pivot.  



And here it is. The basic slider mechanism is ready! 



We now need to glue it to the slider front and back panels. Start by folding the flaps of those die cuts...



...and then tuck the slider pivot against the fold of each flap, in order to adhere it between the front and back panels. I think that the best adhesive to use for this step is 1/8" double sided tape. 
Repeat the same step and glue the back of the slider to the pivot too. 


At this stage play a little with your slider to make sure that the sides didn't catch on any of the adhesive...and also because it's fun! 


All that's left to do now is to glue the slider to our card.

I created the card background with the largest die in the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangle dies and the Gotta Have Gingham 6x6" paper pad, also by Lawn Fawn. I then glued everything to a white card base.
I decorated the card with some leftover images and added my sentiment.



For the sentiment I used the Lawn Fawn Oh, Gnome stamp set and heat embossed the greeting happy birthday on black cardstock with white embossing powder. The die that cuts the banner is part of the Lawn Fawn Double Slider Surprise set.


And that's my card for today!  I really hope you like it and I hope you found this tutorial useful! I want to say a big thank you to Scrapbook.com for the opportunity to share my creation with you, and I wish you all a wonderful day!
