I used the Stay Cool Stamp Set and matching dies as well as the Tiny Heart Die for the pull tab.

I colored all the images with Copic markers and the background with Distress inks and a blending tool.

I hope you like it :) Have a great day, hugs!

[WIW] Hey Girl and Partial Die Cutting by Laura Bassen

Hi there! It's Laura here with a new Watch it Wednesday video!

In today's video I show how to use the partial die cutting technique to only die cut the top & bottom part of the sloth image so that it suspends inside the oval window.

[TT Video] Dot Art by Channin

Hello everyone! It’s Channin here with a new technique video. This week I was inspired by dot art or dot painting. I think it is so beautiful and intricate and I have always wanted to try for myself, so this week I gave it a go!

[TT Video] Dot Art by Channin

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.

First, I stamped and heat-embossed a sentiment from the Doily Circle Stamp Set in silver on a A2 top-folding card made from black cardstock. Next, I stamped the doily from the stamp set in Memento Tuxedo black 3 times on the card front. Then, using a rainbow (Violet, Old Rose, Baby Pink, Orange, Lemon Yellow, Lime Green, Emerald, and Sky Blue) of Kirarina Wink Pens, I made small dots over the stamped doily image.

To make the doily very colorful, I split it up into rings and colored each ring a different color. In addition, to add a little more interest, I colored each doily a little differently, but I never strayed from my original 8 colors. And that is it! Pretty simple but yields very striking results!

I hope you enjoyed and thanks so much for stopping by!

[In the Details] Greeting Within a Greeting by Nichol

[In the Details] Greeting Within a Greeting by Nichol

Hello all! It's Nichol here with a new In the Details video!

A skinny, tall alphabet stamp set, like the Cutaway Alpha Stamp Set that I used for today’s card, is perfect for the greeting within a greeting technique.

[In the Details] Greeting Within a Greeting by Nichol

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.

 I die cut a background from Bristol Smooth Cardstock using a Stitched Layers Die. The greeting from the Stay Cool Stamp Set was stamped on the background with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. A thin strip mask was used to cover up the greeting and then the Cutaway Alpha was used to stamp the “Hello” greeting over the “Stay Cool” greeting.

Once the mask is removed the sentiment has the look of a single greeting with the phrase “inside” the larger sentiment! Embossed resist was used to create an “ocean” and beach over the background and sentiment. White Distress Paint was used to create the look of the foam. Images from the Stay Cool Stamp Set were stamped on smooth white cardstock with black ink and colored in with Copic Markers before being die cut with the matching dies. The images were adhered to the card as shown to finish the scene.

I hope you enjoyed! Thanks for stopping by!

[TT Video] Pom-Pom Accents by Channin

[TT Video] Pom-Pom Accents by Channin

Hello everyone! It’s Channin here and I’m so excited to be with you all for another Technique Tuesday! This week I’m focusing on CAS cards with 3-D accents, pom-poms accents to be precise. Pom-poms are a very popular trend in clothing right now and it seems I can’t get enough because I couldn’t resist putting some on my cards! Today I’m making 4 different cards showing just a few ideas for incorporating pom-poms into your cards.

[TT Video] Pom-Pom Accents by Channin

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.

Card 1

For my first card I stamped 3 different dogs and 3 party hats from the Pawsome Stamp Set on 110lb white cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black, an alcohol marker friendly ink. I then colored all the images in with my alcohol markers and then diecut them with the Pawsome Matching Dies. Next, I adhered the party hats onto the dogs with liquid adhesive. I then strung some 10mm pom-poms on some black and white twine using a needle to create a garland. Next, using an x-acto knife I cut small slits in the mouths of each one of the dogs and then fed some of the garland in. Then I stamped my sentiment onto my A2 white, top-folding card base and then adhered the dogs, holding the garland, down with foam tape. Lastly, I glued some 5mm pom-poms onto the tops of all the party hats.

Card 2

This second card is a bit simpler. First, I stamped 3 corgis from the Pawsome Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black on white 110lb cardstock. I then colored all the images in with my alcohol markers and then diecut them out with the matching dies. Next, I stamped a sentiment from Happy Day Stamp Set on an A2 white, top-folding card base. I then adhered the corgis down with foam tape and then drew curved dotted lines behind and in front of each corgi with a pencil and then a permanent marker. Lastly, I erased my pencil marks and then adhered 3 green 5mm pom-poms in front of each corgi.

Card 3

For card three I stamped the Shiba Inu dog from the Pawsome Stamp Set and a party hat on 110lb white cardstock. I then colored the images in with my alcohol markers and then diecut them with the matching dies. Next, I adhered the party had onto the Shiba Inu’s and then set it aside to dry. I then diecut 5 photo frames out of 110lb white cardstock using the medium frame from the InstaLove Die set. I then adhered all the frames together using liquid adhesive so that the frame was very thick. Next, on one of the left over inserts from the Instalove frames, I colored a rainbow background of circles to resemble the 5mm pom-poms. I then trimmed the dog down to fit into the frame and adhered her with some doubled up foam tape and some glossy accents. I then adhered 5mm pom-poms behind and in front the Shiba Inu to make it appear as though she is partially buried in a ball pit. I then set the frame insert aside to dry and then stamped my sentiment at the bottom of an A2 top-folding white card base. Once the insert was dry I popped it into the photo frame and adhered both onto my card front.

Card 4

This last card is the simplest. First, I stamped a cat from the Hello Stampurr Stamp Set on 110lb white cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black. I then colored the image in with alcohol markers and diecut it out with the Hello Stampurr Matching Dies. I then stamped a sentiment from the Flora Cat Meow Stamp Set on an A2 top-folding white card base. Lastly, I adhered the cat down with foam tape and then added a glitter 10mm pom-pom in its paws with glossy accents.

I hope you enjoyed and I’ll see you next Tuesday with a new technique!

[In the Details] Across the Miles with Vellum Dimension by Nichol Spohr

[In the Details] Across the Miles with Vellum Dimension by Nichol Spohr

Hello! It's Nichol here with another In the Details card and video!

One of my favorite ways to add dimension without bulk is to add vellum layers to a card scene. Vellum is fantastic for muting something that might be too bold or bright and it also makes a great layering accent like the stamped and embossed clouds from the Across The Miles Stamp Set that I used for my card today.

[In the Details] Across the Miles with Vellum Dimension by Nichol Spohr

Watch below or on our Youtube channel.

 

A background was die cut from Bristol Smooth Cardstock using a Patched Layers die. Clouds from Across The Miles were stamped using Versamark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder before being inked over with Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink for embossed resist clouds.

Additional clouds were stamped and embossed on vellum before being die cut with the coordinating Across The Miles dies and layered over the background. Bright hot air balloon images and cute birds were stamped on smooth white cardstock and colored in with Copic Markers before being die cut and added to the card design. A greeting and banner from Across The Miles was stamped and embossed on vellum and then wrapped around the large hot air balloon for the card sentiment.

An additional sentiment was stamped inside the card to finish the design.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

[Video] Interactive - Image Shaker Card by Therese Calvird

Hello it's Therese here and welcome to Interactive Thursday!

Shaker cards are so much fun to make and to receive, so today I thought it would be great to take it just one step further, by creating my own shaker elements.

[Video] Interactive - Image Shaker Card by Therese Calvird

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.

I created a panel with the Stitched Layers Die and then die cut the jar shape from the Sweets Matching Die Set to create the shaker window. I stamped the jar onto acetate and adhered this behind the window.

I stamped the sentiment from Balloon Messages Stamp Set in both black and My Pleasure Dye Ink. Then I stamped and Copic colored the images that I needed from the Sweets Stamp Set and either die cut or fussy cut these out.

I created my shaker well and added some die cut red glitter hearts and clear glass beads along with the sweet images. Then I attached the panel to the front of a topfold card. Finally, I grounded the jar image with a grey shadow and popped the the two little girls up on the card front.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have a great day!

[TT Video] Faux Laser Cut Panel Technique by Channin

on June 06, 2017

[TT Video] Faux Laser Cut Panel Technique by Channin

Hello everyone and welcome to another Technique Tuesday! It’s Channin here and this week I’m demonstrating how to create the look of a laser cut panel but using coordinating stamps and dies. I had a lot of fun with this technique and made 5 cards! Please check out my video below to see them all and to get all the details.

[TT Video] Faux Laser Cut Panel Technique by Channin

Watch below or on our Youtube channel. 

Card Set 1

For my first set of cards, I first diecut several flowers and butterflies using the Pretty Wings Matching Die set from 110lb white cardstock. Then using the negative space in the scraps to position the diecuts, I stamped the flowers and butterflies using 3 shades (light, medium, and dark) of blue for the various layers in the Pretty Wings Stamp Set.

Next, I constructed my cardbase by trimming a sheet of colored (pink) cardstock to 4.25 x 11 and a sheet of 110lb white cardstock to 4.25 x 10.875. I then folded each in half and adhered the colored sheet over the white using adhesive tape. I do this because my colored cardstock is only 65lb weight and is rather flimsy without the additional white cardstock layer.

I then stamped the second part of my sentiment, “A GOOD DAY”, from the Happy Day Stamp Set using Versafine Onyx Black ink in the lower right side of the card but with the card opening from left to right because I will eventually turn this card into a trifold card. Next, I constructed my faux cover plate layer by postponing my diecut flowers and butterflies within a 4.25 x 5.5 space and adhering where the overlap with liquid adhesive. I used a sheet of acetate over my actual card and used my card base as a guide which also helped me to position the diecuts precisely over the sentiment so you wouldn’t be able to see it through the front panel. Also when positioning my diecuts, I made sure to make some of the diecuts overhang on one of the 4.25” sides. Once the diecuts were adhered and the panel dry, I folded over the overhanging portions and adhered them onto the backside of my card to create hinges.

After my faux cover panel was adhered to my cardbase and dry, I stamped “TO BE HAPPY” on the inside of my card in Versafine Onyx Black and then stamped and white embossed “TODAY IS” on a strip of black cardstock, adhered it to some black craft foam and then adhered it to the card front.

 

Card Set 2

For my second set of cards, I first diecut several of the smaller butterfly from the Pretty Butterflies Die set and several of the flowers from the Lacy Panel Die set out of 110lb white cardstock.

Next, I colored the diecuts using alcohol markers. I then created my cardbase by trimming a sheet of colored (yellow) cardstock to 4.25 x 11 and a sheet of 110lb white cardstock to 4.25 x 10.875. I then folded each in half and adhered the colored sheet over the white using adhesive tape. Again I only do this to add strength to my colored cardstock.

Next, stamped stamped “A GOOD DAY”, from the Happy Day Stamp Set using Versafine Onyx Black ink in the lower right side of the card but with the card opening from left to right. I then constructed my faux cover plate layer by postponing my diecut flowers and butterflies within a 4.25 x 5.5 space using my actual cardbase as a guide with a sheet of acetate over it to protect it from the liquid adhesive. And again I made sure to make some of the diecuts overhang on one of the 4.25” sides which I folded over and adhered onto the backside of the card to create hinges. Lastly, I stamped “TO BE HAPPY” on the inside of my card in Versafine Onyx Black and then stamped and white embossed “TODAY IS” on a strip of black cardstock, adhered it to some black craft foam and then adhered it to the card front directly over the second portion of the sentiment to hide it from the front.

I hope you enjoyed! Thanks so much for joining me today and I’ll see you next week!

[In the Details] Custom Backgrounds by Nichol Spohr

[In the Details] Custom Backgrounds by Nichol Spohr

Hello! It's Nichol here with an new In the Details video!

Creating your own custom patterned backgrounds is a snap with a layered stamp set. The Pretty Wings stamps makes for a gorgeous background when paired with the awesome Waffle Flower Inks.

[In the Details] Custom Backgrounds by Nichol Spohr

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.

I layered Safe Choice, My Pleasure, Oh Happy Day, You Said What, Chirp Chirp, New Fish In Pond, Daydreaming, and Happy Go Lucky dye inks.

Black paint splatters over the background, add interest and a bit of distressing to the design. In order to still see the butterflies through the greeting, I die cut Lacy Layers from vellum and added a stamped and embossed greeting from the First Step Stamp Set.

Frames were die cut from white and black cardstock using the same dies and layered one on to top of another around the vellum greeting. The background is still visible through the vellum, but slightly muted so it’s still easy to read!

An additional Pretty Wings butterfly was stamped and then die cut before being adhered underneath the greeting, using foam adhesive under the wings to make it appear to have just settled there on the card.

Hope you enjoyed and thanks for stopping by!
