PLAN WITH ME VIDEO - APRIL 24th THRU APRIL 30TH - SIMPLE LAYOUT

PLAN WITH ME VIDEO - APRIL 24th THRU APRIL 30TH - SIMPLE LAYOUT

Hello! 

This week I decided to go a little more plain and simple. . . Layouts don't always have to be elaborate. . . . as long as it works for you. . . . I kinda had a crazy last couple of days and know that I have a lot I am going to try to get done next week so I opted for a layout that was going to give me plenty of space. . . . 



I am using Strawberry Jude's Stamper Planner. 
There are lots of different layout and printable pages available.

Little One - Slider Window on a Shaker Card

Hello!

I have been seeing all these great sliding window cards and really wanted to make one!
However, I thought I would do it with a shaker card!

I had never made a slider card before so I was glad I got the slider part to work right!


First!

What will you need?

Card Base
1 Base Panel
2 Frames
1 Acetate piece - The same size as your frame
2 Smaller Panels - these will be the inside from the frame cuts
Foam tape
Shaker Pieces
Strong Adhesive



I used a set of nesting dies to cut all of these pieces out. . . using two dies, one within the other, cut at the same time will give you a frame and a smaller panel. Then I used the larger of the two dies to cut my acetate panel, I know that it will fit perfectly!

I am going to start with the sliding window, just to make sure I can get that to work out, just in case this turns into a regular shaker card! So we start with both frames, one acetate sheet and 1 of the smaller panels.





I started by cutting up the first frame. I cut the right side off, as you can see in the picture. Then I cut out about half of the top and bottom parts of the frame. I used stitched dies so I use the stitching as a guide when cutting them in half. . . It is important to keep a little bit on the ends so that the panel has something to keep it from coming out of the card.



I took the end piece that I cut off the frame and put it on the end of the small panel. This is going to keep the panel straight in the frame track and will catch on the little bits on the end to keep the panel in the card.



Now I am going to stamp my image for this card. I am going to use the New Little One stamp set from Strawberry Jude Stamps. I am going to stamp it with some regular black ink and will color in part of the image with Prismacolor colored pencils. I used a piece of washi tape folded over on it's self and attached to the back to create a little pull tab. Make sure it is long enough to stick out the side of the frame.



Time to assemble the sliding window. . . . starting at the bottom - acetate, cut frame, small panel, full frame.. . . .Yay!
Here is an image of the back also. . .



So now the easy part! Shaker!!



The second small panel is going to be the bottom of your shaker window. If you want anything to be on the bottom of your shaker window you would stamp it now. . . . I originally wanted to make the small panel blue and stamp a sentiment on it but I decided to keep the panel white and stamp the sentiment in blue. Once you are done decorating the shaker bottom adhere it to your base panel.


 Then you are going to surround  the small panel with foam tape to create a well for your shaker bits. Make sure you take into consideration the size of your frame! You don't want your foam to stick out past your slider window! You can also attach the foam to the bottom of the slider window, that may be easier to make sure your foam isn't going to stick out.


Now it is time to dump in the goodies! 
If you decided to put your foam on the bottom of your slider window just make sure that your bits stay on the small panel so that you can easily place the window over the top of them. Peel off the cover paper on the foam tape and place your window slider on the top. Attach your panel to your card base and you are done!


 It kinda looks like a gender reveal card, as everything is white until the sliding window is pulled to revel the blue shaker!

Here is the card in action!

I like to Party. . . .

I like to party, and by party I mean take naps. . . . 


Hello!

Happy Wednesday!

I created this card using the April release from Strawberry Jude Stamps.

I started by stamping and heat embossing this napping lady. . . I heat embossed it because I used Ditress ink and a water brush to color the image and the embossing helped me to keep the colors right where I wanted them. I then used my Portrait to cut the image out and to create a slightly larger image to use as a backing. I die cut a sentiment flag from the same grey card stock that I used to go behind my image and stamped the sentiment from the stamp set in black .

I then die cut my base panel from some white cardstock that had some white embossing on it to give the card some interest instead of making it flat. I also wanted to add some bling so I die cut a large oval out of silver glitter paper to go behind my image. . . .  I used some foam tape to stick my image adn the sentiment to the card.. . . And of course I had to add some glitter enamel dots to finish it off!

I like how this card turned out, I like the colors on the chaise and think this sentiment is my moto!!!

Out Of This World Birthday

Out Of This World Birthday


I was finally able to use this new space set from Lawn Fawn and I love it!

I used a file from the silhouette store to cut this box card. I created a galaxy background using watercolors and used it for the decorative panels on the box card.

I stamped the images with the Lawn Fawn copic friendly ink and colored with copics. I added wink of Stella glitter to the planet's and space ship.

I attached all the images with clear acetate to give them a floating apperance.

NEW LITTLE ONE

Congratulations On The New Little One



People around me are havin babies! I thought I should whip up some cards and started with this one. . . 
I used a stamp set from Strawberry Jude Stamps called New Little One. I stamped the blanket and little girl in black versafine and then clear heat embossed it. I colored the image in with Prismacolor colored pencils and blended with some gamsol. 

I cut my base panels with Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle dies. I added the sentiment and finished the card off with some pink glitter enamel dots. I also recently, like yesterday, got an edge trimmer so I used it and rounded all the the corners on my card. I really like how it looks.
