Card | Creative Pop-Up Box

Hi everyone! Today I’m sharing with you a very creative take on the Mini Pop-Up Box die from Lawn Fawn. It does not look much like a box anymore, does it? When I saw the Keep on Swimming stamp set, this idea came to mind, and I just had to figure out how to do it.

For the ones interested, I created a video on the card making process. So in case you would like to try out this idea as well, make sure to check out the video on my channel. I have other video’s available too using the same die. And if you like my video’s, don’t forget to subscribe.

The main scene is on the inside of the card, with the cute cat staring at the fish in the bowl. I just love the sentiment “I can’t take my eyse off of you”, it cracks me up.

I also thought about the front of the card. This is gives the recipient an idea of what is inside the card, plus it holds the card shut, which is convenient when placed in an envelope.

I hope you liked this card and it gave you inspiration to use the mini pop-up box in multiple ways. Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!

Card | It’s Your Day, Go Wild!

Hi everyone! I am absolutely in love with these cute jungle animals from Hello Bluebird. I actually made this card earlier, but could not post it yet, because the recipient did not receive it yet. But now that it has, I am very excited to share this card with you.

First I stamped, colored and die cut the images with the coordinating dies. The main Copic colors used are:

  • Y11, Y13, Y18
  • E55, E57, E59, E00, E13, E31
  • YG01, YG13, YG17, YG67

To create the actual layout for the scene, I chose to work with the gallery frame die. For the border, I ink blended Distress Oxide Twisted Citron on Neenah Classic Crest Solar white. And to create my own pattern paper, I stamped the leaves with VersaMark ink and brushed Perfect Pearls on top. This gives a subtle pattern with a nice shine.

For the background of the scene, I ink blended Distress Ink Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade. To add dimension, I popped up the gallery frame die with foam tape and adhered some images with foam tape, others I glued to the card.

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

Card | Sunset Birthday with Distress Ink

Hi everyone! Today I’m sharing another beach themed card with the Beach Chickies from Mama Elephant. In a previous post I created a card with a sunset in a polaroid frame and I liked that idea so much that I extended it to a whole card.

To create the background, I masked of the top and bottom part of the paper. From the bottom to the way up I blended the following Distress Inks making sure they are blended well together for a smooth transition: Scattered Straw, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Worn Lipstick. To give the background a nice shine, I brushed Perfect Pearls on top. To also a bit more interest, I sprayed water on top to fix the pearls and create water droplets.

For coloring the Beach Chickies I used my Copic Sketch markers:

  • Chickie: Y11, Y13, Y18, B00, BG02, BG05, YG01, YG13, YG17
  • Coconut: E55, E57, E59, YG01, YG13, YG17, Y13
  • Umbrella: B00, BG02, BG05, B93, B95, B97

After I finished coloring I used the coordinating dies to die cut them. To also add some shimmer and shine to the images I used Stickles, Wink of Stella, and Glossy Accents. With a white gel pen I added dots to the umbrella. I stamped the sentiment with VersaSafine Onyx Black ink as that is a nice juicy ink which I needed because I coated it in clear glossy embossing powder and heat set it.

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

Card | Llama Tell You …

Hi everyone! The card of today really puts the Llama from Lawn Fawn in the spotlight! It is a small stamp set, but I think the Llama is really cute and versatile. Today these Llama’s are going on a journey, are you joining them?

The Llama’s are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink which is a copic friendly ink. I colored everything with my Copic Sketch markers and die cut them with the coordinating die. I die cut some grass from white cardstock and ink blended Distress Oxide Twisted Citron on it to give the grass a vibrant look.

As for the trees, these are from the Center Picture Window Add On die, and I die cut them from the Spring Fling pack and brown cardstock. The flowers are actually from the Gallery Frame die from Hello Bluebird. These give a nice finishing touch to the grass area. I die cut the flowers from the Spiffy Speckles and Spring Fling paper. For the sky I also used the Spiffy Speckles paper.

Then I paper pieced everything together, and popped up the Llama’s with foam squares. To frame the card, I used the Wonky Rectangles die from MFT.

And that finishes the card! I hope you like it and it gave you inspiration. Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!

Card | I Sea it’s Your Birthday

Hi everyone! Today’s card is featuring little stamps from Lawn Fawn from 2 different sets: Seahorsin’ Around and Keep on Swimming. As you can see, the stamp sets go perfectly together. I wanted to create a simple card, really focusing on the little critters.

I started by stamping the critters with Memento Tuxedo Black ink which is a copic friendly ink. I colored everything with my Copic Sketch markers and used coordinating dies to die cut the critters. The seawead I stamped with Distress Ink Peacock Feathers and Mowed Lawn. To give them a nice shine, I coated them with shimmer from Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents.

For the background I sprinkled Nuvo Shimmer Powder Atlantis Burst on watercolor paper and sprayed it with water to activate. This powder is perfect when you want to have a quick shimmering watercolor background without needing watercoloring skills. To frame the card I die cut 2 paper strips with the Stitched Hillside die from Lawn Fawn and popped them up with foam tape.

For the sentiment I chose the ‘i sea it’s your birthday’ from the Seahorsin’ Around stamp set and also stamped bubbles next to it. And that finishes the card! I hope you like it and it gave you inspiration. Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!
