Make Uniquely You cards

Hey! Hey! It’s Friday!

How are you doing today?

Every day seems to bring mixed emotions and harder challenges, I feel. Sometimes you just don’t how you feel, right? That’s when you wish that you have the right sentiment to fit on that card that was made out of pure frustration or elation brought on by that particular day.

Here I come to save the day ūüôā (Tra-la-la!)

Now, don’t get me wrong. Unity has some fabulous sentiment kits and amazing wordy stamps for all occasions. But let me show how you to make them more personalized with a Dymo embossing label maker.

I am using the amazing Uniquely Unity Kit (June 2020)  for all my cards today. These kits are only $14.99 a month and so much love goes into these kits! You will not be disappointed!
I love making use of stark contrasts in my cards. For example, I have a whole bunch of monoprints (made with my gel press) where I used neon acrylic paints. Add a black and white element and you achieved a WOW effect with very minimal effort.

This print reminded me of the beautiful sunsets we see here in South Carolina and I needed a sentiment to fit its vibrancy. I perused Pinterest and found this one (Also, would you like to see this in red rubber?? ūüėČ ) The Unity stamp was inked with Altenew’s Obsydian blank ink that delivers that crisp look and then I used my Scan N Cut to cut it out for me. I cut the inside of the print twice with two different sized rectangles dies. Glue the flower to the inside of the outer layer and then pop it up with foam tape. Glue the most inside colored print in the center of the card base. This label maker’s tape has adhesive to the back, so just space it out and adhere to the card.

I made extra stamp cutouts and positioned them overlapping each other to form a square. This is a 5×7 card paired with another monoprint. Since orange is the color of Faith, I thought that this sentiment would fit perfectly.

My last card comes from inspiration from my son. This is his favorite song from the Trolls movie and he always dances like a mad man when it comes on. The clever design of the stamp with the line underneath made for a perfect anchor to place “in a pocket”

I paired this monoprint with a Darice striped embossing folder and it actually started coming apart by itself. Well, use what you have, right? I glued all the pieces onto the A2 card and tucked that stamp right into that gap. I wanted to use some foam tape to pop it up, but the paper was too fragile. But it worked out great! You can also add names or type sentiments in a different language to these cards to personalize them even more. Another tool in your arsenal! And what about all that patterned paper you have been hoarding???? These would work perfectly together!

I hope this will spark some creativity for you this weekend when life gets you down! Chin up, girls!

Wedding Peonies

Happy Friday!

I love making cards, no, I am obsessed with making cards. But when I HAVE to make a card, I struggle BIG TIME.  I had to make a card for a friend whose daughter is getting married this weekend and I put it off until yesterday! Nothing like procrastination, huh??

The bride will have light pink peonies in her bouquet, so I decided on using the Peony Hugs stamp set. And I knew it had to be bigger than an A2 card, so I chose an A7 ( 5×7) card. (Just make sure you have that size envelope in your house!!) I cut and folded a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lbs card stock as the base and placed a piece of acetate with silver foil dots (from A.C Moore) over it. Use double-sided tape in the middle of the card because this will be covered up.

Next, I stamped and silver heat embossed (Hero Arts Silver EP) two peonies on white vellum. Heat the vellum at an angle to prevent warping. Carefully cut these out on the outside of the embossed line. I tried to color the peonies with a Copic marker but stamped and cut this same stamp in pink card stock instead. This way both peonies are identical in color.

For the center, I used Heffy Doodles Skinny rectangles and cut a frame out of white card stock. Don’t stack the frames because you will need the flowers to be flat on the card. Next, cut a matching rectangle out of Neenah Desert Storm card stock (or Kraft) and glue these together.

Adhere the peonies to the corners of the white frame and let the vellum leaves fill the brown space in the center. You can use double-sided tape for these as well. The letters are three stacks deep adhered with liquid glue. This glue will give you a little longer time to reposition if need be. The top letter layer is out of silver card stock. I used Tim Holtz Sizzix Classic Upper and Classic Lower Thinlits for the names.

And to finish, I added the beautiful sentiment from the May Kit of the Month to the inside of a folded Desert storm card stock that is cut slightly smaller than the A7 size. I used Altenew’s Obsidian Pigment ink for a crisp impression.

I hope you like the post and card just like my friend does. And I have to give a huge shoutout to the Unity design team for helping me put this card together! I was struggling, BIG TIME! Thanks, girls!

Have a great weekend!

I miss seeing you

Happy Friday!

I hope you had a great week and have plans for relaxation this weekend. Maybe some crafting as well? And have you seen the new red rubber releases over at Unity Stamp Co??? What do you think of those pretty dragonflies?? See how I create a peekaboo card using Vellum.

I am going back to work at the hospital on Monday and I wanted to make a card for my coworker who is near and dear to my heart. I want her to know that I missed seeing her and that I am in serious need of adult conversation!

Here is what I did:

This is still a traditional top folding card with a place for a stamped sentiment inside, but with the vellum, it creates an illusion of just having two layers.

The three stamps I am using today are

Stamping supplies

  • Misti
  • Versamark Watermark stamp pad
  • WOW Metallic Gold Rich Super Fine embossing powder
  • Distress Oxides Shabby Shutters and Mowed Lawn
  • Smooth Bristal A2 sized card stock
  • Top folding A2 landscape orientation card
  • Vellum (5 1/2″ x 5″)

Directions

Stamp and cut out two dragonflies, I used my Scan ‘N Cut to save time. Color these ( I used Copics) and set aside. Next, cover the Bristol Smooth paper (or any paper that will blend well with distress oxides) with variations of Shabby Shutters and Mowed Lawn. This will give the page some depth/light interest. Place your colored paper in the Misti and use your antistatic tool all over the paper. Stamp the Botanical Background with Versamark and apply the Gold Embossing powder all over. Heat set this and adhere to the front of the top folding landscape card.

Measure your vellum over the embossed area/card so that you have a “lip” on the back of the card of about 3/4″. Position the dragonflies in such a way that there is a spot for a sentiment on the left side of the vellum. Place the sentiment in the Misti over the vellum, use antistatic powder, and stamp with Versamark. Heat emboss with the same gold embossing powder. I used double-sided tape to secure the vellum to the back of the card.

Finish the card with applying dimensional foam squares to the back of the “front” dragonfly and regular double-sided tape for the inside dragonfly.

Now you have two dragonflies looking for one another in a garden! At least that’s what happened in my mind! Please let me know if you have any questions!!!

Have a great weekend!

Too glam! Guest designing for Sassy & Crafty

Welcome back to another guest designing opportunity for Sassy and Crafty! This post is dedicated to the other glam girl that is part of the Own it stamp set.

Here is what I did:

The A2 background is the result of a marathon gelli press printing evening. I used a few acrylic paints and various stencils to get the variations seen on the background. I cut out a triangle on the bottom right corner as big as the girl, and then set it aside.

I stamped the girl with Gina K designs Black Amalgam ink with a Misti. Remember to keep the stamp in the Misti to re-stamp with a darker ink in the end.

Coloring the girl is similar to last week’s:
Skin E4, E11, E000
Hair: E09, E07, E79
Shirt: BG13
Background: BG000
I used Gold Wink of Stella for handles of the makeup brushes.

Sentiment: Sunny Stamps Studio flag banner, adhere foam tape underneath for dimension.
Ink: Altenew Black Obsidian pigment ink.

Finish the card by re-stamping the girl with Altenew Obsidian ink and aligning the colorful background over her. Glue the two pieces together. Cut off the excess paper, adhere to a 4.25 x 5.5 top folding card and position the sentiment on the card.

I hope you like this glam girl and will support Amy and Beth over at Sassy & Crafty! Go Small!!

Happy day!

Gel printing with a bit of sass!

Happy Friday!

I hope you all had a great week and are ready for a quick and fun video on how to make backgrounds using a gel plate. I just discovered this gem of a technique so I am not even going to pretend I know what I am doing! But, sit back and relax. Enjoy this 5-minute video and watch how I use this Unity Stamp three times and get three different looks. I have helpful tips at the end of the post.

Here are my supplies I used:

(Disclaimer: I bought these off the shelf without doing any research on brands/products/performance, but they all worked great!)

  1. Gel plate
  2. Brayer
  3. Acrylic paints (regular and metallic)  (the $1 kind!)
  4. Stencils
  5. You will stamp set
  6. Ann Butler Background Builder Strips Stamps
  7. Heavy cardstock (A2)
  8. Bubblewrap
  9. Altenew Obsidian Pigment Ink
  10. Clear Embossing powder
  11. Random things to make impressions.
  12. Tim Holtz Clipping Stickers

Things I learned:

  1. There is no wrong way, just have fun.
  2. You don’t need a lot of paint on your plate. Brayer it off on a piece of paper.
  3. Do clear heat emboss the stamped images, this will prevent smudging and image deterioration. The pigment ink will just sit on top of the acrylic paint and won’t absorb.
  4. You don’t have to clean your plate in between prints. This will build interest on each layer.
  5. Remember the color you apply last, goes on first.
  6. If you use word or number stencils, remember to flip the stencil so it appears backward on the plate. Think mirrored image.

I hope you enjoyed the video. Shoot me a message if you have questions!

Own it!

Hello Fabulous People!!

I am so happy to be a guest designer for  Sassy and Crafty this week to show off this amazing new stamp set! I hope I can show you a few tricks to make an image pop with tools you may already have!

I am using the new Sassy Girls РOwn it stamp set and I am so pleased with the details in this stamp.

Here is what I did:

I used Copics as my coloring medium thus needing an ink pad that is Copic friendly, such as the Gina K Designs Black Amalgam Ink. I am also using a MISTI for stamping. Once you stamp her in the middle of an A2 sized heavy cardstock base, leave the girl in the MISTI and don’t move her. I’ll show you a trick to make her appear crisper at the end.

Masking techniques are fun to use and can add amazing dimension and depth to a one layer card. Go ahead and stamp another girl on masking paper. Cut out and put aside.
Her hair is a mixture of yellow, red, and brown Copics. First, apply Y06 in the highlighted areas, or where the light would hit her hair and flick R17 into the yellow areas. This is not a true recipe, but I always play with my redheads to get a fun look. Flick E39 into the red areas and work closer towards her hair part. Finally, use E79 in the part and on the hair behind and next to her neck, anywhere shadows would fall. Finally, use a white gel pen to create more highlights if it looks flat.

Her skin is a mixture of E11, E000, and 0, the blender. Apply E11 in the shadow areas around her forehead, where her clothes end (or start), sides of her arms and neck. For her face, apply E11 at her hairline and draw smile triangles for her cheekbones. Take E000 and go over E11 and extend it over the skin areas. This will give you a good blend and an additional shadow line. Use the blender in her chest area or where too much color is.
I used B99 for her dress with white Gel pen highlights. A gold Wink of Stella brush added some shine to her earrings and the mascara bottle.

Background

Let’s finish the card with a WOW background. Cover the girl with the already cutout mask and pull out Distress Oxides. I used Blueprint Sketch all over with Chipped Sapphire around the edges. Blend Black Soot all around the edges again. Miss Inks has this wavy patterned styled stencil and I used Fossilized Amber with this stencil. Heat set all of this for about 30 seconds. Next, use an antistatic tool all over the card. I used Versamark and Ranger Liquid Platinum to stamp and heat emboss the “Own It” freehand on the top of the card. I did get some loose embossing powder in between the words but it added some “Glam” to it.

Now for the last trick! Uncover your girl and place her back in the MISTI. I used Altenew’s Obsidian Pigment Ink, which gives super crisp impressions, over the whole image. The Amalgam Ink didn’t give me the black I wanted, but I needed it for the Copic markers. So now you get to have the best of both worlds!

I hope you learned a few new things and will support Beth and Amy in their new venture together! You can also follow me on my Facebook page for more inspiration!

Have a great weekend!

Slimline Possibilities

Happy Friday!

It is such a happy Friday because Unity Stamp Company is releasing RUBBER STAMPS today! I am so happy to show you one of the fabulous stamp sets available for purchase.

I am also trying something new for me, a Slimline card. I don’t have any fancy dies for this so anyone can make this card today. This stamp set is named Possible not Easy and designed by our newest team member, Sandhya Iyer. Make sure to show her some love!

Here is what I did:
Slimline cards are 8 1/2″ tall by 3 1/2″ wide and they will neatly fit into Number 10 envelopes with room to spare. Fold one 8 1/2″ x 11″ Neenah 110lbs cardstock in half and cut off the excess card stock.
Now, let’s add a pretty and dimensional background by using an embossing folder on a separate 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 piece of card stock. So how are you suppose to emboss an entire 8 1/2 long piece of paper with a 6×6 embossing folder? After I used an Echo Park diamond weave folder and ran it through my Gemini Jr, I just turned my paper around and lined the paper up with the existing embossed diamonds. Adhere this to the front of the card base with double-sided tape.

Now for the fun part. Stamp several flowers on heavy card stock, like110 lbs paper, because once these are cut out, they tend to be a little flimsy. Good card stock prevents the flowers from curling. I also used Copic friendly ink like the Gina K Designs Amalgam ink. Choose a patterned paper that is not too busy but will still make your flowers the main attraction. Stamp and cut these frames, three to be exact.

I colored the flowers with Copics using three shades of yellow (color dark to light) and I used two shades of green for the leaves. 

The “Joy” sentiment is part of the Simon Says Stamp “Joyful” die and I cut three of these, stacked and glued together. Adhere the three squiggly squares evenly spaced to the card base. Finally, position the flowers offsetting two of them and one smack in the middle.

Two more cards were made using this stamp set and I must say, this set is definitely going in my favorites pile.

I want to spread some joy to celebrate Unity’s joy today. In the spirit of joy and giving, I am gifting this slimline card to someone leaving a comment on the blog post posted by Unity Stamp Company on the Show and Tell Page. Tag me to tell me what you think of this card! 

Try something new today!

Masking techniques!

Happy Friday!

I am going to show you how to make three different cards with only two stamps! I am also sharing three different ways to mask your image to get three different results.

I am using the Another Name for Love stamp, designed by Gina K, that is just perfect for Mothers’ Day or a “just because” for mom cards. Let’s get started!

First, stamp the flower with Gina K Designs Black Amalgam ink, on three different A2 sized card stock. I use Neenah Solar Crest 110lbs paper because Copics glide well on this paper for me. Set aside the other two card stock pieces for now. Stamp the flower on masking paper and fussy cut the image. DO NOT REMOVE THE FLOWER STAMP FROM THE MISTI/PLATFORM!!

Next, cover the flower with masking paper and grab the “paint swipe” looking stamp from the set. I used Tangerine Twist from Gina K Designs ink for this card. Repeat this stamp all over the card front. You can easily stamp this freehand. Carefully remove the mask and set card front aside. Now to card number 2.

Take a blank 4.25 x 5.5 piece of card stock and die cut a hole to the side. This is another way to mask an image if you don’t have masking paper. Once covered, stamp the “paint” stamp with Sea Glass, also from Gina K Designs, in the circle you created. Remove the mask and let’s start on card 3!

Card number 3 combines all three masking techniques in one! Mask the flower for the last time and place the die cut circle over the flower. Repeat paint stamp with Peach Bellini (Gina K Designs). Remove the circle and place the other piece of the blank card stock that was die cut, over the card front. Repeat stamp with Butter (Lawn Fawn) over the masked flower.

Now you have three card fronts ready to color. I didn’t do any fancy coloring, because once colored, I heat embossed the flowers with either silver or gold. This is why you had to leave your stamp in the Misti. The image will line up perfectly with your previous stamp flower and make the flowers even more dramatic. Use Versamark and an anti static tool to keep the embossing powder where they are suppose to be! I used three of the sentiments from this stamp set and stamped them with the VersaFine Clair Green Oasis for a crisp imprint.

You can doll these cards up with a fancy stitched border or even pop the card up with dimensional foam tape. Experiment with “scripty” or “”wordy” background stamps over floral images for a dramatic look. I hope you try these techniques in your next card!

Have a great weekend!

Foiled Interlocking card made with a digital stamp

Happy Friday Unies!! It is Friday, right?

Hope you are all doing well and are enjoying these fabulous digital stamps!!! I woke up yesterday (at 2am) and wanted to make this card immediately, but I had to wait for the rest of the household to wake up first!! Let me show you the video first, then I think it’s easier to understand what I am trying to say.

Cool, huh? I downloaded and printed this Germs and Jesus stamp with a laser printer onto 110lbs Neenah card stock. The toner ink is important if you want to foil the stamp, like I did here. You can fussy cut the floral image but I used my Brother Scan ‘n Cut with an 0.08″ white border.

I wanted the sentiment a different color from the floral image. To do this, carefully cut along the inside of the frame’s border with a sharp craft knife. If the edges of the sentiment are jagged after the cut, use a paper cutter to achieve a clean and straight cut. Also, since the sentiment will be separate from the front card base, slightly trim all sides by 1/8. This will ensure that it doesn’t get caught when opening the card. You are now ready to foil the frame and the floral image.

I used Summer Rainbow for the flowers and green Therm O Web Decofoil for the sentiment. Make sure to add another piece of paper underneath what you want to foil as this serves as a shim and the foil adheres better when run through the laminator.

The next step can be done two ways. I first embossed a pink shimmery paper with an Altenew Cover plate and traced the inside of the floral frame onto it. Or, skip that step and take the flowers and add one layer of foam tape to pop it up and adhere it to the pink paper. Adhere both to the card base. Either way, you have to cut that same frame out of the pink and out of the upside down card base.

For the actual card base, I tried to take a photo to explain what I did here. This card requires two landscape A2 cards. These are also 110lbs Neenah card stock. They are glued together in such a way that the “upside down” base opens up first. Remember to cut about 1/8 off one of the “top” base’s edge. This will help to keep the card closed and open up without it sticking. Once you have your bases glued together (I used double sided tape), line up your sentiment through the front frame. Add TWO layers of foam tape on the back of the sentiment. This will help to “lock” the card in place.

I hope this make sense, that is why I made the short video! But please let me know if I can help you with this card. I will show you another card today on the Unity Show and Tell Page.

Happy Easter!

Peony Hugs for you

Good Morning Unies!

¬†This beautiful Gracielle Designs Peony Hugs stamp set¬†released last weekend! isn’t it gorgeous? I’ve put my Copics away and tried a new medium I am very uncomfortable with: PrismaColors. We have to try new ways to do the same things to chase these fears away!

I don’t have as much practice in colored pencils as I have with Copics, but here we go! After stamping the flower on Neenah Desert Storm paper, I started  coloring the whole peony with the lightest yellow and filling in the shadows with two darker shades of yellow. I then took two shades of orange and added color to the bases of the pedals. To finish, I added “light” with a white pencil and a white gelly pen. I took the same “light to dark” approach with the pedals.

 The light blue background closest to the peony made the yellow flower just pop off the paper. I then used a checkerboard stencil from Gina Marie Designs and added color with Distress Oxide. Be mindful of where your flower is to not put color all over it. I was very surprised how dimensional the flower looked after applying just a little grey coloring at the edges of the flower. Yes, I was THAT surprised!

Finish off your card with a raised sentiment and some gems. I layered this top folding card with navy blue and white card stock.

Try something new this weekend, even if it scares you!

Pretty Digital Unity Stamp Co on Vellum

Happy Friday Unies

Did you see what Angela has done now? Did you see all the delicious digital designs? See what I DiD there? Ha! Yes, I am slightly delirious with all these gorgeous digis!! Ok, being all serious now, but Angela has released digital stamps for us during this awful time. Thank goodness for a small business that loves us and t hank you for showing her love as well.

So, I hope we are getting more comfortable with printing and coloring stamps. Have you tried printing in color or on colored card stock? Now what about printable vellum? Here are a few examples:

In This Together digital stamp is just gorgeous. I printed the digi on Clear printable vellum that I bought from Hobby Lobby a year ago. For the base, I used 110lbs Neenah Desert Storm at 4 x 5.25. Then I die cut a black frame and used Connect adhesive glue to  adhere it to the vellum. Cut off the  overhanging vellum. Under the black frame and vellum, I added a thin line of dimensional foam and adhered it to the base. The sentiment was also printed on vellum and I used ICraft Tape Runner underneath the vellum and applied it on top of a piece of white card stock. Add some gems and your done.

All the “pretty paper hoarders” this card is for you. I used the white “letterboard” looking paper from the Rustic Wood Paper pack underneath the sentiment digi stamp printed on vellum from the Pray More set. I used Neenah Desert storm for the frame and popped the whole thing up with dimensional foam tape.

So we come to my favorite card for the blog, the girls on the swing.
I printed the girls from the There will be sunshine stamp  and placed a silver frame on top. I added two more white frames underneath the vellum to give the card some dimension. Use adhesive glue that dries clear and for the ability to move it into the right spot. You can add clouds with distress oxide or Gina K ink right onto the top folding A2 card.

I love using these stamps even though I am a red rubber girl. But since this is only available for a limited time during all this mess, I ask that you would at least give it a go. Everyone at Unity and the girls on the design team will help you, even if we have to get Nic involved to fix a problem. ūüėČ

I love seeing all your digital creations!!!

His and Hers

Happy Germ-Free Friday

In the midst of all the panic and unknown, we can always come to our craft rooms and create a safe space and some awesome cards! Also, I am now addicted to foiling so let’s make two cards with one toner card front!!

I am using one card front from the Circles a Plenty pack and will show you two ways of foiling.

Card with dress

After letting the laminator heat up for a little bit, feed the printed cardstock with foil (shiny side on top) inside a folded piece of printer paper. Take note of the lines on the back of the foil; you want the lines to be horizontal as you are feeding it through the laminator. Also, add another piece of cardstock underneath the card front for extra pressure. This will give you excellent results every time.

The dress (from the new Kit of the Month, March 2020)  is heat embossed with silver and fussy cut, layered over a circle die (I believe from Spellbinders?) cut out of vellum. The sentiment “Hello beauty” is from the “…every single day” sentiment kit which is also heat embossed with Hero Arts Silver Sparkle embossing powder. Layer with white and blue cardstock and place dimensional foam tape under the dress for a pop of interest.

Card with Jeep

Now that you are left with the negative foil from using it above, let’s make another card! But first, we have to play with Deco Foil Transfer Gel Duo. Apply gel evenly to an A2 piece of 110lbs card stock (Neenah Desert Storm). I have found that 80lbs paper does not hold up as it curls and tears easily. Leave for it for at least an hour to dry! This is very important! If i’s still wet, the foil and paper will tear off together.

Once it is dry, place the negative foil on top of the gelled card and repeat the process through the laminator. You can also run this panel through your embossing machine. The gel makes the paper sticky in a way so the foil will adhere. Then take two top folding A2 cards and cut a circle through the front of one. Cut the same size circle through the foiled panel. Flip the other A2 around so the fold is on the bottom.

Stamp the Jeep, from the Scout Adventure stamp set, on the upside down card so that is shows through the circle. Color with Copics and stamp the sentiment. I used Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide for the sky. Cut 1/4 inch off the ends of this upside down card because this will help the card fold better and not get hung up on top. Use liquid adhesive to wiggle the card in place.

I hope you enjoyed this post! You can make Him and Her sets for weddings, showers and… boy/girl twins! ūüėČ Have a great weekend!!

Three cards Three styles

I am so excited to share with you Unity’s newest venture into the world of FOILING! We have an Instagram Blog Hop on Monday, March 9th, and I hope you can join us to see all the new releases paired with the various Toner card fronts!

So, how does this work and how can I use it? Each A2 pack contains 8 card fronts with a design in toner ink on white card stock. You will need a laminator and foil to use these products. You can also add color to these white card fronts, like I have done here.

I applied color before the foiling process to not dull the shine of the foil. Also, If you use dye ink or distress oxide, make sure you clean off excess color and heat set before foiling. Don’t ruin your Copic tips by coloring after foiling.

I made three cards today.  I took the three panels above (already colored and foiled) and used the new Purple tape with lower tack to combine and align the card fronts. I used two funky wavy dies and cut all three card fronts at the same time with my Gemini Jr.

You end up with 9 pieces which I glued together like a puzzle onto 3 different A2 card panels. Use a liquid adhesive to move the pieces together into the right position. Now I have 3 panels with 3 different colors on each.

For the first card, I added a stitched frame and adhered to a black background. The sentiment, mounted with dimensional foam tape, is from the Letterboard Quotes stamped with Altenew Antique Gold. I also added some wire for visual interest.

For my second card, I used an embossing folder to add some trippy dimension and mounted with dimensional foam tape on the back. This itty bitty, Undies in a Bundle, was perfect for such a busy and shiny background. I added vellum behind the undies to refocus the card.

My last card had to be a shaker. Cut a frame from the panel and TURN it so the colors are opposite from each other. This just made it a bit different and is more visually appealing. The Hello die with shadow is from Sizzix Thinlits.

I hope you like these cards and will check out our Foil selection in the store!

Happy Crafting!

Hey you!

If you have been following my cards this month you have probably noticed that I am trying to use my scraps. Cut out frames, uncolored embossed images and cut out sentiments litter my table. What better way to bring those unused treasures and make it into one stunning card?

I have a slight obsession with this Delectable border background. It’s a perfect stamp for the upcoming celebrations like weddings, Easter and Mother’s Day cards.

This may look like a complicated card but it’s quite simple.

Here is what I did:

White heat emboss one image on watercolor paper. Heat emboss another image on white 110lbs card stock with WOW Primary Dovetail Regular embossing powder. Cut the latter to 4 x 5.25 and adhere to a topfolding 4.25 x 5×5 Neenah Desert Storm (110lbs) card stock base. Set aside.

Die cut 3 frames using stitched rectangle dies from the same Desert Storm card stock. Attach using liquid adhesive to move the frames until they are lined up. The “hey you” sentiment is from Picket Fence Studios. It has a shadow to the words; use vellum for this. I used green metallic card stock for the words. Adhere and  set aside.

Now for the middle part. Take the embossed image on water color paper and color with water colors. You can also use Distress Oxides with water for this. I am a poor watercolorist. But a trick I have learned is that if you use two or three shades of the same color and dab it on here and there, you achieve some depth, “accidentally”! Make sure to dry this before the next step.

Use a craft knife and cut out the white center along the leaves and roses. I did not take great care in doing this, but make sure your lines are clean and not jagged. Now, it’s easy after this.

Take your 3 frames you have glued together earlier and position it over the center of the roses. See where you have the most flowers inside the frame and glue the frame to the roses. Following the outside line of the frame, cut off the excess paper. To add some shine to the middle, use acetate, or even vellum. This acetate already had some silver foiled dots on it, so BONUS! Adhere the acetate to the back of your frame. Cut along the outside of the frame and trim the acetate. This also gives some stability to the flowers.

Finally, add your sentiment. I used Therm-o-web Tape Runner XL Permanent on the back of the vellum. This tape does not leave sticky marks on vellum or acetate! Adhere all this to the top folding card with strong double sided tape.

Have a great weekend!

Stay Cozy with Shimmer Powder background

Happy New Year pretty people!
I hope you have the year you deserve!

Whatever you put out there this year, I hope it makes it back to you 100 fold!

My personal goals are to manage my time better and dive deep into the world of video producing. I work full time and have a houseful of people that need me as much as I need them. But I also realize I want to catapult my card making skills to the next level.
Since I am a visual learner, I like to enrich my skills by watching others make beautiful cards. I have purchased a professional grade video producer and I will let you know if it works if that is something you are interested to do as well.

Here is my first video for the year 2020. I am playing with different speed settings and caption headings, so bear with me as I learn as I go. I appreciate your honest feedback and welcome constructive critique. Leave a comment here or on my YouTube channel. I can only get better if I know what to fix.

Have a fabulous weekend and I hope you will check out this stamp set from Unity Stamp Company, Warm and Cozy. I think it’s on sale as well!!

Stay warm!

All I want want for Christmas…

Happy Saturday!
I hope you like my card featuring this beautiful and sweet Love you more Christmas Frost stamp and die set.

Love you More - Christmas Frost 4x8

This was a very simple card to make. Basic shaker elements, a little bling and a beautiful stamp. I feel it is necessary to buy the coordinating die as even my Brother Scan N Cut had some difficulty cutting the space in between the lovebirds.

I used Copic markers for the stamp and red and silver mirror card stock for the background. The frame inside is easy to create; MFT carries a metal die set that will cut three different sizes of frames. I used the medium size for the silver frame.
Quick Tip: If you use shakers and want some shakers to stay more to the top instead of all being at their feet, glue some shaker elements with some clear glue.

The new release is around the corner and if you love this couple as much as I do, you don’t want to miss it!

Hope to see you around and keep on crafting!
Hugs and Kisses,
Charmaine Canham

Release day 2: Merry Pigmas Slider

You have seen that Geico add with the pig hanging out the window and going WHHEEEE! My inspiration comes from a lot of weird places!!! LOL! Here he is skiing down a snowy hill!

Here is what I did:
1. Make your background look like a ski slope. I used Tumbled Glass Distress oxide and masking paper to make the slopes.
2. Use a ” Merry” die, this is from Spellbinders, and cut the word randomly across the cardstock.
3. Stamp, cut and color the pig. I used Copics, glossy accents and Wink of Stella for some shine.
4. Use a kinetic die, mine is from Lawn Fawn, and create a slider.
5. To make some snow, use white Liquid Pearls and make “snow” everywhere.

Hop along with us for more inspiration and amazing creations
from our fabulous design team!

Dashing through the NO

Good morning my Caffeinated critters! I like to make extravagant cards that take hours but decided that I need a quick card with a punch! Well, here he is in all his Christmas glory!

This caffeinated reindeer stamp and metal die are available at the Rabbit Hole Design and Simon Says Stamp stores.

Here is what I did:
1. I stamped a few reindeer on Neenah 110 lbs card stock and fed it through my Brother Scan N Cut. I used Gina K Amalgam ink (Copic friendly). There is also a die available for this stamp.

2. I used Copics to color this reindeer. Use a white Gelly pen for highlights and candy canes.

3. Using a 4 x 5 1/4 white card stock piece, I stamped the “dashing through the no” multiple times, 1/4 apart, with my Misti. I like using VersaFine Claire ink for sentiments! There are two green card varieties.

4. Stamp the sentiment and cut with a metal die. To add some shine to the card, also cut a red piece from red mirror card stock. Assemble with double sided tape.

5. Attach a matching green card stock to the stamped base’s back. This should be about an 1/8th bigger than the stamped base.

6. This is a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 top folding card. Attach the sentiment with double sided tape and the reindeer with dimensional foam tape.
7. For the inside, cut a piece of 60 or 80 lbs colored paper, 4 1/8 x 10 1/2. Fold at center, stamp sentiment and adhere with double sided tape.

8. Match your envelope and you’re done! I made 4 cards under two hours.

Howl you doin, Therm-o-Web?

Morning Rabbit Hole fans!
We are collaborating with Therm-o-Web this week and sharing how we incorporate crafty items into our own designs using The Rabbit Hole Designs stamps. I hope you are able to fit these ideas into your own creations! There are also some prizes to win!!!

Using our favorite boxer for this project available at Simon Says Stamp and at The Rabbit Hole Designs stores.

These are clear designer toner sheets. You get 4x A2 sheets in each pack and can be cut accordingly. This is similar to acetate, but already with an image printed on.

To color the toner sheet, choose a Deco foil transfer sheet color that will match your project. I used Emerald watercolor today. Links are on the images.

Here is how I made this Boxer shake:
*
**Switch on your laminator!***
1. Stamp, cut and color Boxer. I used Copics to color.
2. Stamp and cut the sentiment.
3. Use a frame die to make the actual shaker part.

4. Cut the clear designer sheet to 4 x 5.25. You can also use a stitched die.
5. Cut a piece of transfer sheet big enough to cover the clear designer sheet.
6. Following the instructions on the packaging, feed the sheet and toner sheet through a hot laminator. The “black” picks up the green and all the shine!
7. Adhere the frame to the designer sheet on top.
8. Apply foam tape underneath the sheet and frame. The frame hides the foam tape.
9. This is a top folding 4.25 x 5.5 card. Place sequins/shakers on top of the card and finish the shaker.
10. Apply the dog and sentiment, and you are done in 10 steps!

Hope you liked my card and all the elements I used from Therm-O-Web. These Clear Designer Toner Sheets are amazing and very easy to work with. I hope you will give it a try!

Therm O Web Collaboration: Fall is in the Air

Morning Friends! 

This week we are teaming up with Therm O Web to showcase you some old and new products that we use in our products. 

I am an Autumn baby so these gold Deco Foil and leafy designer toner sheets just spoke to me! I will link all my products used in the post.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 20190915_1600267456851903282201301.jpg

Using my favorite Love you more stamp, I decided that they need a Fall background. This stamp set is available at the Rabbit Hole Design store and at the Simon Says Stamp store. 

Deco Foil Clear Toner Sheets - Endless Leaves picture
Deco Foil Transfer Sheets - Copper picture
Love You More Clear Stamp 4x6

Here is what I did:
** Switch on your laminator***
1. Stamp, cut and color the lovely couple. I used Copics.
2. Cut a heart out of Tonic Metal Sheets/Aluminium Foil sheets, Copper Kettle. 
3. Stamp the sentiment on yellowish paper, used¬†¬†My Creative Time’s sentiment strip¬†for the stitched die
4. For the “Fall”, I used¬†Pinkfresh’s Adore Alpha Die Set¬†and craft foam.¬†Cut another set out of yellow cardstock and another out of gold/ mirror card stock.¬†
5. Glue the foam and cardstock with liquid adhesive. I used Gina K connect glue

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 20190915_1558458713080945495934890.jpg

6. Now for the fun background: This clear Deco Foil Designer Toner Sheet, Endless Leaves, is GORGEOUS.
7. Pair it with ICraft Deco Foil Copper Cabre transfer sheet and run it through the laminator.(Follow the directions of the packaging). 
The Rabbit Hole has transfer sheets in stock as well. Click here.
8. Cut the leafy background down to your card size (4.25 x 5.5)
9. Adhere the leafy background to the card using Therm O Web tape runner. This will not show through the clear sheet. Amazing right???
10. Adhere all the elements onto the card and as a final touch, use the gold “shadow outline” from letters and adhere to the word Fall.¬†
11. I used dimensional tape to adhere the sentiment

Hope you liked my card and all the elements I used from Therm O Web. These Clear designer Toner Sheets are amazing and very easy to work with. I hope you will give it a try!

Leafy kisses!

Release day 3: Hoo needs Caffeine?

I like coffee. I also like gin and tonic. Social etiquette says I have to choose one depending on the time of day. Does it matter that I was born on a different continent with a 7 hours time difference? These are the questions that I ponder…….

Caffeinated: Owl Clear Stamp 3x4

Release Day 2: Mornings are for the Dogs

What do you get when you have a house full of kids and not enough coffee? A DISASTER! This brand new Boxer completely understands my pain as I am looking at his scowl! And by the looks of it, his whole village of “dads” are all commiserating their unfortunate situation!!

This card was super simple to make. I tried to mask it off and was quite successful until I messed up the background. So plan B, cut and paste! Here is what I did:

  1. Top folding card, 4.25 x 5.5 from Neenah 110 lbs Classic Crest card stock
  2. Use a separate 4.25 x 5.5 piece of white card stock and emboss it with a Sunny Studios starburst embossing folder
  3. Use Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide and apply generously over the embossed image
  4. Use a finger dobber to apply Gold Nuvo Mousse over the sunrays. Let this dry
  5. Stamp 5 Boxers with Gina K Amalgam Jet Black ink. This ink is safe for Copic use.
  6. Either fussy cut or use a Scan N Cut to cut out these 5 pups.
  7. Color them with different colors and think of how you want to place them so that two of the same pants/gown/coffee cup colors aren’t next to each other. This will be visually more interesting
  8. Ground the pups by placing some green “grass” on the bottom. You can use a border die to make it look like grass
  9. Use dimensional double sided tape to adhere the three dogs in the front and regular double sided tape for the ones in the background
  10. For the sentiment, I used Versafine Clair ink and a banner die. Attach with dimensional foam

Release day 1:You are Brewtiful

I was born and raised Dutch influenced by the English. So my tea is hot, with milk and sugar. Mmm, the most delicious, soothing beverage suitable for any time of the day! The Rabbit Hole Designs team is kicking off our new release with this Steeped in Happiness stamp set that just makes me want to turn on the kettle!

Steeped in Happiness: Clear Stamp Set 4x6

This stamp set is available in the Rabbit Hole Designs store and at Simon Says Stamp!

Please Note: There will not be free shipping available during the time this discount code is in effect. Not applicable to previous orders. May be used more than once. Does not apply to shipping and tax.

Here is how I made this fun shaker:
1. Top folding card from Neenah White Card stock 110 lbs
2. Glue a nice patterned paper onto the card
3. Die cut two pieces of white card stock smaller than the actual card. One is for the stamped image and the other is to complete the “sandwich” to keep the glitter in
4. Stamp the stamp with Gina K Amalgam Jet Black ink
5. Using a craft knife, carefully cut out the centers of the cups and the pot
6. I used Copics to color my image. Make sure to color the insides where you cut out the centers

7. Place acetate big enough to cover the cut out areas on the back and adhere with double sided tape
8. Use dimensional tape and make small pockets for each cup for the glitter to stay in. So for each cup, make sure the tape is closed off.
9. I used Michaels Chunky Glitter for the inside
10. Sandwich/glue the two white card stock pieces. The shaker is now complete
11. Stamp the sentiment with Versafine Claire. I used the Scan N Cut to cut out the Brewtiful image. Used dimensional tape to adhere it to the edge of the card
