Note Card Set | Spellbinders Small Die of the Month July | Ornamental Floral Card Creator

Note Card Set

Hello everyone! I created a set of note cards using the Small Die of the Month from Spellbinders. It’s great to have non-occasion cards in your stash that you can grab and send out to friends anytime. The set includes four beautiful dies, and the first thing I thought of when I saw them was stained-glass windows. It’s called Ornamental Floral Card Creator.

Image38 The largest of the dies cuts out a beautiful, delicate frame. I die cut everything with white cardstock so you could see it clearly. The blue cardstock is cut to a standard A2 sized panel, 5.50 by 4.25. The frame reaches to the edge of the panel.

The other three dies cut out gorgeous flowers.

Card #1: Stained Glass Window Note Card

For my first card cut out these images with many different colors of cardstock and paper-pieced them back into the black frame and the white flower outline.

Card 1 redo

Card #2: Delicate Purple Flower Card

I used some pattern paper from Spellbinders and allowed that to do most of my work for me. The paper pad is called Express Yourself. This was a fast and easy card to create. I cut out my flower image with white, purple  and green cardstock. I used the white for the frame and the flower outline, and then I paper-pieced the purple and green cardstock inside the flower outline.

Card 2 redo

Card #3: Partial Paper-Pieced Card

I used more Spellbinders Cardstock for this card. This pattern comes from the paper pad called Weekend Fun. I cut the dies with gold cardstock this time and popped in pieces here and there. I love the touch of gold.

Card 3 redo

Card #4: Copic Colored Card

This time I only cut out the dies with black cardstock. I used Copic markers to quickly color in each of the frames. I added some Nuvo drops around my flower and that was it!

Card 4 redo

Card #5: Rainbow Smiles Card

Here’s another piece of gorgeous Spellbinders pattern paper. This pattern if from the pad Life is a Party. I cut out the flowers with white cardstock and glued them flat onto my card. I stamped out a sentiment from July’s Card Kit and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.

Card 5 redo

Stamping on Acetate | Spellbinders – FSJ Stamp of the Month | April 2020

Hello, my crafty friends! I hope you’re all staying happy and well! I’m very excited to show you the new Stamp of the Month from Spellbinders and Fun Stampers Journey. This stamp is called Bold Beautiful for obvious reasons. There are 14 stamps included in this set, and they are red rubber stamps. I adore red rubber stamps because they stamp out the delicate lines of the images so perfect and crisp. There is so much you could do with this set. Any art medium would be fun to use on these images, but they are all so beautifully drawn, you wouldn’t even need to color them in. SOM-APR20-Product-Pac

I love all of the gorgeously detailed floral images and that rectangle stamp is fabulous!! I’m sure we all have rectangle dies in our stashes, but it’s great to have a rectangle frame stamp–this can be used in so many fun ways.

Image1

To create my card I stamped out the rectangle frame and then the bold beautiful sentiment onto a piece of acetate using StazOn Ink. This ink comes in many colors, but I just stamped it out in black.

I then used some warm brown ink called Potter’s Clay Memento Ink to stamp out my patterned background. I randomly stamped out all the floral images from this set except the larger flower and leaves image–that one I stamped out twice on another piece of Desert Storm card stock. I colored in all my images with Moonlight Gelly Roll Pens. I need ed something bright so my images would really pop behind the acetate. After my coloring was complete, I fussy cut out my two flower and leaves images, popped them up with foam tape and adhered them onto the acetate.

To glue the acetate onto my floral pattern panel I added liquid adhesive behind the flower and leaves images. The acetate covers the whole front of my card and provides some fun shine to the card. It was really difficult to capture that in a photo, but if you watch my video you’ll see the fabulous shine.

You can watch my video here or over on my YouTube channel in HD!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Take care, everyone! Hugs!

Jackie

#spellbinders, Any Occasion Card, Embossing Folders

Spellbinders Cut & Emboss Folders | Kyoto & Lahaina

Hello! Thanks for stopping by. I have some fabulous new crafty products to show you!  Spellbinders has new embossing folders in their shop! I love creating cards using embossing folders; they provide so much fun texture and dimension. However, the folders I’m using today also cut as they emboss!

CutandEmbossFolders1200x1200

The first Cut & Emboss Folder I’m using is called Kyoto, named after a city in Japan. Don’t you love the beautiful fans it embosses onto the paper? To me the look is also reminiscent of the 1920’s Art Deco era with its clean, geometric shapes.

I chose a very pale pink piece of card stock to emboss. To accentuate the design, I blended some Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink across the panel with a foam blender. The raised edges pick up the ink and really bring it to life. I matted my panel with a piece of  gold mirror card stock to show off the diamond-shaped cuts.

I embossed it again with another piece of pink paper and cut out one of the fans, so I could showcase it on the front of the card. I also added a little tassel with some baker’s twine.

Kyoto Folder 1200

On my second card project I used the folder called Lahaina named after a city in Hawaii. I love all the gorgeous leaves leaves on this folder!

To create my card I used a piece of bright green card stock. I blended on more Distress Oxide Inks to bring out the texture. The colors I used are Crushed Olive, Evergreen Bough and Peacock Feathers. I used white card stock behind this panel, and I love how brightly the white shows through.

Lahaina Embossing 1200

I didn’t create a video for my projects; however, below is a link to the video that Spellbinders produced showing all four of their new cut and emboss folders.

Thank you for visiting today! I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Below are the links to all the products I used to create these cards.

Trinity Stamps Mini Encouragement Cards | Not 2 Shabby Design Team Project February 2020

Hello everyone! I have some really top-notch products from Trinity Stamps that I’m focusing my design team project on today for the Not 2 Shabby Shop! This is my first time designing with Trinity Stamps products, but it’s certainly not going to be my last. The products that really grabbed my attention are their 3×4 stamp sentiments and the coordinating Slimline Fold & Frame Dies. Use the code N2S10 to get 10% of you purchase at the Not 2 Shabby Shop!!

Ninety percent of the time I prefer to create A2 sized cards (4 1/4 x 5 1/2); however, the cards I created using these products are mini cards (4×5), and I absolutely adore them! Trinity released 5 of these sentiment stamps which you can use to create mini cards, or regular A2 size cards. The sentiments and the fonts are just lovely!

The Slimline Fold & Frame Dies were really fun to use with these stamps because they cut out a perfect sized card base to fit these stamps–it even scores a line in the middle for easy folding. If you’re planning on picking up any of these products, be sure to use the Image7

Card #1: Chalkboard Hug Card

This stamp is my favorite of the set. I stamped out the sentiment onto a piece of black card stock using white pigment ink. I then colored in the sentiment with some polychromos colored pencils. To make the sentiment really pop off the paper, I heat embossed it with white embossing powder. You really don’t have to put a lot of time and effort into these cards to make them fabulous. Trinity Stamps has done most of the work for you.

Image4

Card #2:

I couldn’t get enough of this stamp, so I created another card with it. This time I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of kraft card stock. I used the coordinating Sending Monster Hugs die to die cut the word hug with different colors of card stock. I colored in the leaves, hearts, and other part of the sentiment with polychromos pencils and then adhered the letters dies onto my card front.

Image1

Card #3: Hug Window Card

On this card I die cut the word hug with the coordinating dies and place a piece of pattern paper behind it. I used foam tape to pop up my main panel. I also heat embossed the sentiment with more white embossing powder.

Image2

Card #4: Ink Blended Love Card

I heat embossed this sentiment with some clear embossing powder onto a piece of Bristol Smooth card stock. This card stock is great for ink blending because it has a smooth coating on it. To make the sentiment really pop, I added more colored pencils over the hearts and the love word.

Image3

Card #5: Copic Markers Better World Card

I love the graphics on this sentiment stamp! I had fun coloring it in with Copic markers onto a piece of Spectrum Noir Alcohol Ink card stock. I’m loving this paper so far! I added some white Gelly Roll pen to create some highlights–they really helped the card pop!

Image5

I also created some mini envelopes for these cards using my We R Memory Keeper Punch Board. They are so fun and easy to make! Mailing out little encouragement cards like these would create a whole lot of happy in this world!

Here is my process video! You can watch it here or over at my YouTube channel in HD.

Have a happy day, everyone!!

Any Occasion Card, Watercolors

Watercolor Card | Hero Arts | Knitting 2019

Happy Worldwide Watercolor month!! To celebrate, I’ve created a card using watercolors and some sweet stamp images from Hero Arts. I love watercoloring; it so mesmerizing to watch the pigments moves around with the water. I’ve recently picked up a few tubes of Daniel Smith watercolors, and I can easily say they do live up to the hype. The colors are gorgeous, and creamy, and dry beautifully.

Two more of my favorite things is cats and knitting; so, this card was a blast to create! I had trouble choosing a color palette for this card. I saw a picture of a beautiful black and pink bird and was immediately inspired–inspiration can come from anywhere.

Image2

I stamped the images onto a piece of Arches Cold Press watercolor paper, and I used VersaFine Onyx black ink, which is a waterproof ink. I painted my images using lots of layers of paint. Once I was done, I let them dry, and I fussy cut them out. However, there are coordinating dies. (See link below.) The image of the girl is so cute how they have her posed. You could sit her anywhere, and in this case, I put her sitting on the edge of the wood frame die cut with her cat and basket of yarn.

10 Cards, 1 Kit |Hero Arts May Card Kit 2019

Happy summer, everyone! I can finally say that! Yay! I have a really fun collection of cards to show you all today! I adore Hero Art’s May 2019 card kit. It’s filled with darling little images of scissors, a paint brushes, yarn and knitting needles, (just to name a few of my favorites)–there’s something for almost every type of crafter. Personally, I am a crafter-of-all-trades; I love to paint and color and sew and knit and crochet–I love it all!

I must admit that even though I love these stamps and dies, it sat on my desk for a while. All of the small images kinda overwhelmed me; I’m more comfortable designing cards with larger images. However, once I got started playing with this kit, that overwhelming feeling floated away. Below you’ll find pictures of all my cards, my video tutorial, and links to the supplies I used.

Magic Slider Cards | Copic Markers

Happy Friday to you all!  I have some fun cards to share today.  I’m using a die set from Lawn Fawn called Magic Color Slider.  I actually won this die set from Jennifer McGuire’s blog last December.  This was the first time I won anything, and I was so excited!!  Thank you, Jennifer!!  The set includes three different window frame dies, so I decided to create a card for each window!

Image6

This is what the set looked like before I opened it and started snipping the dies apart.

Image1

It took some time to chose the colors of cardstock I wanted to use and die cut them, but here are my cards all cut out.  It looks complicated, but once you create one, you get the hang of it, and it’s smooth sailing from there.

Image2

I used a Mini Misti to stamp the images onto Neenah White 110 pound cardstock using MFT’s Extreme Black Ink.  While the images where on the Misti door, I switched out the cardstock for a piece of acetate the same size and stamped the images again.  I used Stazon Ink to stamp on the acetate.  I used two different inks because Stazon is not Copic friendly, and I wanted to color all these images with Copics.

Image3

Once all my coloring was finished, I started to assemble my cards.  I put dot liner on the back of the colored panels, aligned them through the window, and then pressed them into place.  To align the acetate, I put down skor tape around the inside of the windows, peeled off the release paper, placed the acetate over the colored images so they aligned perfectly, and then closed the frame onto it.

Image4

Before sealing the sliders together, I made sure to put in my white slider piece, and then adhered the two sides together with more skor tape.  I pulled the white slider up and down a few times to get it slide smoothly.  These cards can be so addictive to play with!!  Lol!!  I added my sentiments and embellishments on the outside of the slider elements and then adhered them all onto card bases.  Some crafters don’t attach them onto card bases, which is fine, but I wanted to make them into mini cards and enable them to stand up.

Image5

Here is the video I created for these cards!  You can watch it here or over on my YouTube Channel in HD.

Thank you for visiting!  Have a nice weekend!!

One-Layer Friendship Card using Colored Pencils and Mineral Spirits

Today I thought I’d make a clean and simple one-layer card to get back into the swing of things.  My family and I have been taking turns being sick, but we’re finally starting to feel better.

I’m using a cute stamp set from MFT called Friends Furever, and I’m stamping the images onto a piece of Canson XL Watercolor paper.  I like the rough texture that this paper adds to the little aniamls.

You_Make_My_heart_Happy_THUMB

I used Post-It Notes to mask my images, so the lines didn’t show through when I stamped them one on top of the other.  I stamped the bird first because he was on top and worked my way down.  I used VersaFine Onyx Black Ink because it stamps out nice and crisp onto this rough paper.

Image1

Colored pencils is my favorite medium to use on cards, especially these Faber Castell Polychromos pencils.  After coloring in these images, I could have stopped there, but I decided to use some odorless mineral spirits to blend out the colors.

Image2

I used the masks again to cover up my images so I could add some Distress Inks.  I used Salty Ocean for the sky and Mowed Lawn for the grass the bear is sitting in.  I also went back in with about five different green pencils to add in some grass under the bear.

Image3

I wanted to break up the sentiment without performing stamp surgery and cutting them apart, so I used more Post-It Notes to cover up the words I didn’t want to stamp.  I like how the broken up sentiment on this cards carries the eye downward, as do the images.  I really liked the effect.

Image4

Here’s the video!  You can watch it here or on my YouTube Channel!

Thanks for visiting!  Have a wonderful weekend!

Here’s the list of supplies I used to create this card:

MFT Stamp Set: Friends Furever

Faber Castell Polychromos pencils:

Bear: Burnt Ochre 187, Venetian Red 190, Dark Naples Ochre 184, Raw Umber 180, Pompeian Red 191

Dog: Warm Grey II 271, Warm Grey V 274, Pompeian Red 191
