Rawrsome Graduate Reveal Wheel

Welcome back everyone. Thank you for stopping by today. Before we know it, graduation is going to be here. This is a perfect time to get started on those graduation cards!

VIDEO DETAILS

I have a video you can view down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.

I am using a few stamp sets from Lawn Fawn to complete my prehistoric scene including Rawrsome, Life Is Good, Out of This World, Simply Celebrate Spring, Gleeful Gardens and Reveal Wheel Spring Sentiments.

I ink blend a vibrant sky using Fossilized Amber, Picked Raspberry and Blue print Sketch distress oxide inks onto watercolor card stock.

To build up my scene I die cut Stitched Mountains from Narwhal card stock, Meadow Borders from Cilantro, and Stitched Hillside Borders from Kraft card stock.

The graduation hats are from the Simply Celebrate Spring. This made it really easy to color and die cut numerous hats all at once. I just trimmed the hats out after die cutting and added to my dinosaurs.

To stamp the sentiments I used the new Reveal Wheel Essentials Template which makes stamping so much easier! I held the template down with post it tape and stamped all of my sentiments at once. No more pencil lines!

After I assembled my reveal wheel, I added it to a piece of Fog card stock and then attached to a base I created from Narwhal card stock.

Be sure to head over and check out the video HERE. I also provide some information on my card making process when making these scenes. Hope you find it helpful!

Neat & Tangled April Release Day 2 + Giveaway!

Welcome back to day 2 of the April 2019 Neat & Tangled release. Did you enjoy yesterday’s preview? Just wait til you see today’s!

This set is called Dream Big. Another adorable set and it coordinates so perfectly with the To The Stars stamp set. My images are stamped on to Neenah Solar White card stock with copic friendly ink and colored with copic markers. I am loving these puffy clouds!

For my background, I ink blended Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers, and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide. Then flicked with water and dabbed with a paper towel. I trimmed the panel down to 3 3/4″ x 5″ and added a little hillside with the Stitched Slopes die. I added this panel to a piece of white card stock cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″ for a nice white border. Then added to an A2 size notecard made from Whisper card stock.

Using a piece Whisper card stock I cut using the Skinny Strips, I stamped the sentiment which is from the To The Stars stamp set. My image and sentiment are popped up with foam tape for dimension.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration! Be sure the head over the Neat & Tangled Blog for more! Leave a comment to be entered into the GIVEAWAY! Release goes LIVE on Friday!

Neat & Tangled April Release Day 1 + Giveaway!

Welcome back everyone! Today is exciting because we are starting previews to the April 2019 release for Neat & Tangled. I’m not gonna lie, I may have went over board with examples. This is such an adorable release I just couldn’t stop playing with it!

VIDEO DETAILS

My card today also has an accompanying video that you can watch down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.

I’m one of those people that creates cards and then I’ll go back and remake one for a video. My first card here, was the first one I created. The card I remade for the video came out a little different and I’ll have those pictures at the end of the post.

Today we are featuring the stamp set To The Stars. How precious is this set? I stamped my images in copic friendly ink onto Neenah Solar white card stock and colored with copic markers. Then used the coordinating die to cut them out.

I used a piece of Layering White card stock to ink blend Tattered Rose , Worn Lipstick, and Dusty Concord Distress Oxide inks. The sentiment is heat embossed in white onto black card stock and then trimmed down. I added a few of the NEW Enchanted sequins mix to my card with liquid glue and added a drop of Unicorn Stickles to the middle of the sequins.

For my next card, I used a few of the other images off of the To The Moon stamp set. There is a constellation that you can die cut out or the set also includes an individual line and stars so you can create your own constellation.

For the background, I ink blended Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink. Then applied Moonstone Nuvo Glimmer paste over the top.

I die cut a circle from a panel of white card stock and added over my textured background (once dry) with foam tape. I added this panel to an A2 size notecard made from Moonstone card stock.

The sentiment is heat embossed in white embossing powder on Moonstone card stock and cut out using the Skinny Strips die.

Now here is the card I recreated in the video. I was a little more heavy handed when it came to applying the inks which changed the look of the card a little. It’s amazing how even though using the same colors, just by changing your pressure, you can change the look of your card.

Both cards are equally adorable!

Alrighty that’s it for today from me. Be sure to check out my tutorial HERE using the To The Moon stamp set.

Head over to the Neat & Tangled blog for more inspiration and of course a GIVEAWAY! Leave some love for us along the way to enter the giveaway for $25 gift certificate.

Get Well Before and After Picture Changer

Welcome back everyone! Today I’m featuring a fun Magic Picture Changer card this time featuring the Get Well Before n’ After and Rain or Shine Before n’ After Stamp sets from Lawn Fawn. I thought it would be really fun to combine the two.

VIDEO DETAILS

I have a video tutorial that you can view down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.

I started by creating my background. I stenciled in clouds using the Mini Cloud Stencil and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink. I know it’s hard to see in pictures but I think it’s something that just adds to the scene.

I die cut the Straight Flower Border from Cilantro card stock and attached the flower tops with liquid glue. I used Sunflower, Guava, Mermaid and Sugar Plum card stock for the flowers. I only needed a few since most of the border will be covered by the picture changer.

I then used the Shadow Box Park Add On and die cut the trees from Paper Bag card stock and the tree tops from Cilantro. I went ahead and attached my tree tops and tree trunks to the stenciled panel. Then added the Flower border.

Since my background is pretty much done, I matted the stenciled panel to a piece of white card stock measuring 4″ x 5 1/4″ and added to an A2 size card base made from Mermaid card stock.

I stamped my images from the Get Well Before n’ After set and Rain or Shine Before n’ After set onto Lawn Fawn white card stock with Jet Black ink. I also stamped my images onto masking paper and after fussy cutting them out, I attached the masks to my images.

I ink blended Pumice Stone and Weathered Wood Distress Oxide for my stormy sky and I used Shabby Shutters for the ground. For my happy side, I ink blended Mowed Lawn and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide using a Life Changing Blender Brush.

After removing the masks, I colored in my images with copic markers. I used YG17, YG25, YG23, YG21, G99, G94, YG03 for the turtle. I added C4, C2, C1, and C0 for the stormy clouds. Once my images were colored I could put my Magic Picture changer together.

My frame is die cut from Cilantro card stock and Really Rainbow Scallops paper pack using the Picture Changer Add On. The green design matched my scene so well. I added my picture changer to the card front with two layers of foam tape.

My sentiment is heat embossed with white embossing powder onto Mermaid card stock. Then added to the front of the card with foam tape. This sentiment comes from the Get Well Before n’ After stamp set.

I hope you enjoyed more inspiration using the Magic Picture Changer. I’m having so much fun creating with it!

Coral Charm Copic Colored

Welcome back everyone. Thank you for stopping by my website and blog. I enjoyed this image from the Coral Charm stamp set so much that I wanted to take another pass it. This time I’m copic coloring the image.

I stamped the floral image twice onto Neenah White card stock with Gina K Designs Amalgam Ink. Then colored them each with the same colors which was V01, V05, V06, and V09. The leaves are colored with YG21, YG23, YG25, YG17.

My one flower is actually an extra from my previous card where I used the layering portions of the stamp set. https://ldli.co/e/epo205Those were stamped in the Tea Party Collection from Altenew.

I used the coordinating die to cut them out which leaves a beautiful white edge to the images.

For my background, I ink blended Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink onto White Layering card stock from Gina K Designs with a Life Changing Blender Brush from Picket Fence Studios. I then squished down some Black Distress Oxide ink onto a craft mat, spritzed with water and flicked onto my ink blended panel with a paint brush.

I trimmed down the ink blended panel to 4″ x 5 1/4″ and attached to an A2 size card base I created from Stormy Sky card stock from Gina K Designs.

I added my images onto my card stock with a tape runner layering the leaves behind the flowers. The sentiment is from the Sentiments Strips from Simon Says Stamp. There are so many to choose from!

To finish off my card, I added some Sugar Plum Jewels with Lawn Fawn glue and a jewel picker. I love the mix of the copic colored flowers and the layered image.
