Hoppy Holidays – Scalloped Box Card

Hi everyone! Recently I bought the Scalloped Box Card Pop-Up from Lawn Fawn and I couldn’t be happier! It is so much fun to work with this die. For my first card I decided to go with a Christmas theme with the Stamptember Snow Bunnies.

First I stamped all the images on Perfect Colouring paper with Mememto Tuxedo Black Ink. Then I colored them with my copic markers:

  • Trees: YG01, YG13, YG17, YG67, E55, E57
  • Scarfs, hat, presents: R24, R29, R59, Y13, Y18, YR24, YR04, Y18
  • Bunnies: E50, E51, E53, E55, R20, R22

After all the images were colored, I die cut them with the coordinating dies. I also stamped a bunch of snowflakes from the Yeti or Not stamp set on vellum and heat embossed them with white embossing powder. The base of the Scalloped Box I die cut out of white cardstock. For all the flaps, I die cut red cardstock, and pattern paper from the Snow Day Remix paper pack. For the sky, I ink blended Distress Oxide ink Peacock Feathers and Mermaid Lagoon and splattered Liquid Stardust on top.

For the inserts I wanted to have the look of snow banks. Therefore I die cut the inserts from Sugar Crystal cardstock. Now all my elements were ready and it was assembly time. If you are interested in how to assemble the Scalloped Box Card Pop-Up, I’m planning to create a video on this. I am a bit behind with my videos as my voice is still recovering from a bad cold.

A Fairy Merry Christmas with Hello Bluebird

Hi everyone! Today I challenged myself to create a Christmas themed card with the Fairy Garden stamp from Hello Bluebird. I love the fairies in this set and thought they would be perfect for a magical fairy themed Christmas card.

I have also made a video on my youtube channel on the card making process of this card. Subscribe to my channel if you don’t want to miss a thing.

First I stamped the images from the Fairy Garden and Garden Friends stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with my copic markers:

  • Fairy: E00, E13, R22, B00, BG02, BG04, BG10, E31, E35, E37, E39, E59
  • Butterfly: BG10, BG11, E31, E35
  • Snowdrops: YG01, YG11, YG13, YG17, YG67, C3, C1, C0, BG10

After the coloring, I die cut the images with the coordinating dies for the Garden Friends and Fairy Garden set.

For the background I stamped snowflakes from the Yeti or Not stamp set with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Then I ink blended Distress Oxide Tumbled Glass on the background. The heat embossed snowflakes resist the Oxide ink and you can just rub it off. To frame the card a bit, I also ink blended Mermaid Lagoon on the edges.

I die cut a circle out of white vellum and used the Stitched Hillside border to create the snow bank out of Tonic Sugar Crystal cardstock. For the sentiment, I die cut a wavy banner out of vellum and heat embossed the sentiment on top. I adhered the images on the vellum background with foam tape to give it dimension. I did the same for the sentiment banner but I used silicone foam tape for it as it does not show that much. As a finishing touch, I put Wink of Stella on the wings of the fairy and butterfly, and added some on the snowdrops as well.

I hope you like this card and it gave you inspiration. Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!

Gumball Sweets – Jocelijne Design

Hoi allemaal! Er is weer een super leuke nieuwe stans uitgekomen van Jocelijne Design: ‘Gumball Sweets’ (6002/1366). Eerder deze week heb ik de snoepjes ook al gebruikt voor de Sinterklaas Challenge in onze Facebook groep. Maar vandaag zet ik deze stans volledig in het zonnetje! Met de nieuwe stans kan je onder anderen een kauwgumballen machine maken, maar ook bijvoorbeeld een sneeuwbol! Vandaag wilde ik eerst de kauwgumbal machine met jullie delen.

Als eerste ging ik aan de slag met het stansen van de snoepjes uit glitter karton van Lawn Fawn. Daarna stanste ik ook de andere elementen uit en gebruikte ik het Spring Fling papier, ook van Lawn Fawn. Aangezien ik er een schud kaartje van wilde maken, heb ik de bol zelf ook nog een aantal keer gestanst uit wit papier. Het makkelijkste is om het 1 keer uit flower foam te stansen, maar daar dacht dat ik vandaag niet aan. Tussen het gekleurde papier en de witte lagen heb ik acetaat geplakt om zo het raam te maken.

Vervolgens legde ik alle snoepjes op de achtergrond en plakte ik de bol er overheen. Daarna heb ik ook de andere elementen samengesteld van de machine. Om een extraatje toe te voegen, heb ik ook op 2 plaatsen op de machine Glossy Accents aangebracht. Om het kaartje te framen, stanste ik de Scalloped Border uit van Lawn Fawn en heb ik deze met foam tape op de achtergrond geplakt. Om het kaartje af te maken, voegde ik nog Nuvo Drops toe in een aantal kleurtjes die overeen kwamen met de snoepjes.

Ik hoop dat je dit kaartje leuk vind en het je inspiratie heeft gegeven om aan de slag te gaan met de Jocelijne Design producten! Tot de volgende keer!

Sinterklaas Challenge – Jocelijne Design

Hoi allemaal! Gedurende de periode van 17 november t/m 5 december hebben we een Sinterklaas challenge bij Jocelijne Design! Wie maakt het leukste Sinterklaas labeltje voor aan de surprise en cadeautjes? Als je mee wilt doen, wordt lid van onze Facebook groep en deel je prachtige creaties! En uiteraard is er voor de winnaar een mooie prijs! Ik ben heel erg benieuwd wat jullie kunnen maken met de producten van Jocelijne Design. Om wat inspiratie te krijgen heb ik vandaag voor jullie een aantal labeltjes gemaakt!

Als eerste ging ik aan de slag met Schimmel het paard te maken met de ‘Tumble Friends’ (6002/1179) set. Deze set heb ik ook gebruikt om de zak van Sinterklaas te maken. Het strikje op de zak en het cadeautje komen uit de ‘Jingle Ornamenten’ (6002/1330) set.

Vervolgens ging ik aan de slag met de pieten. Deze heb ik gemaakt met de ‘Santa Claus’ (6002/1329) set in verschillende kleurtjes. En natuurlijk komen de pieten en zelfs Schimmel met pepernoten en snoep strooien! Hiervoor heb ik de nieuwe stans van Jocelijne gebruikt genaamd ‘Gumball Sweets’ (6002/1366).

Om de snoepjes er extra lekker uit te laten zien, heb ik op een aantal Stickles gedaan en op anderen Glossy Accents. Dit alles heb ik gedaan nadat ik alle elementen op de tags had bevestigd. Het moet even drogen namelijk. En om nog meer kleur en vrolijkheid van de kaartjes af te laten springen heb ik ook Nuvo Drops in verschillende kleuren toegevoegd.

Ik hoop dat je deze labels leuk vind en het je inspiratie geeft om zelf aan de slag te gaan en mee te doen aan de challenge. Zoals je ziet zijn er super veel mogelijkheden met de Jocelijne Design producten! Ik ben benieuwd wat je gaat maken. Tot de volgende keer!

Sunny Studio Stamps – Cruising Critters

Hi Everyone! I have a confession to make: Somehow, always when I try to make a card more masculine, it still ends up cute and girly. Do you recognize that also with yourself? However, this time, I think I’ve managed to keep it masculine! In the card of today I’m featuring the Cruising Critters from Sunny Studio Stamps. I love how the critters are piled up in the car! As this card is going to a guy who has an olive green car, I also wanted to color this car in those colors.

First I stamped the image on Perfect Colouring paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with copic markers:

  • Car: YG93, YG95, YG97, YG01, C0, C1, C3, C5, W0, W2
  • Bird: Y18, Y13, Y11, YR04
  • Cat and racoon: C0, C1, C3, C5
  • Dogs, hegdehog, and bear: E50, E51, E53, E55, E57, E59
  • Bunny: W0, W2

For the sky I ink blended Cracked Pistachio and Twisted Citron on white cardstock. In the top left I stamped the sentiment with VersaFine Onyx Black ink. To create the bushes in the scene, I die cut Fall Fling paper from Lawn Fawn with the Puffy Cloud Borders. For the road, I used a strip of black cardstock and heat embossed the white dash lines on them. These are also part of the Cruising Critters set. I adhered the car with the critters on top of the scene with foam tape to give it dimension.

I hope you like this card and it gave you inspiration. Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!

Fuzzy Hugs Underneath Northern Lights Part 2

Hi everyone! In a previous post I shared the exact same card with you all, except I used a different color scheme. I’m really curious to hear which one you like best!

For reference, I made a video on the coloring and card making process of my previous card. So if you would like to know how you can create the card, this video will show you! And if you like watching my videos, don’t forget to subscribe to my channel.

The background of this card is created with Distress Oxide inks and I was going for a northern lights look. The colors I used are Cracked Pistachio, Tumbled Glass, and Mermaid Lagoon. To add the effect of snow, I diluted white acrylic paint and splattered it on the background. After that, I set the background aside and let it dry.

In the meantime I stamped the bears from the Fuzzy Hugs stamp set on Perfect Colouring paper and colored them with my copic markers:

  • Left bear: B93, B95, B97 , E50, E51, E53 , R22
  • Right bear: YG01, YG13, YG17, YG67, E59, E57, E35, R22

Then from white cardstock I die cut the Winter Forest and adhered it on my ink blended background. The bears I also adhered with tacky glue and grounded them by coloring the ground underneath with my copics. As a finishing touch, I added Stickles Frosted Lace to the snow.

It was really fun to create this card and I hope it gave you inspiration. Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!

Fuzzy Hugs Underneath Northern Lights

For the ones interested, I have made a video on the coloring and card making process. If you like watching my videos, don’t forget to subscribe to my channel.

The background of this card is created with Distress Oxide inks and I was going for a northern light look. The colors I used are Shaded Lilac, Picked Raspberry, and Mermaid Lagoon. To add the effect of snow, I diluted white acrylic paint and splattered it on the background. After that, I set the background aside and let it dry.

In the meantime I stamped the bunnies from the Fuzzy Hugs stamp set on Perfect Colouring paper and colored them with my copic markers:

  • Left bunny: W0, W2, E50, R20, RV000, RV52, RV55, BG00, BG02, BG05, BG07
  • Right bunny: C0, C3, C5, R20, BV00, BV02, BV04, B93, B95, B97

Then from white cardstock I die cut the Winter Forest and adhered it on my ink blended background.

As a finishing touch, I added polka dots to the scarf of the left bunny and added Stickles Frosted Lace to the snow.
