Spellbinders Large Die of the Month – June

Welcome everyone! I have an amazing die collection to share with you today. It’s featuring the Large Die of the Month from Spellbinders called Festive Wreaths Slider Card.

These are tons of elements in this set to create a wreath for every season! The fun slider mechanism allows for you to pop up your card front for display and/or add an additional message in the inside. You get such a bang for your buck by subscribing to the Large Die of the Month Kit. You can read more about it HERE over at Spellbinders.

VIDEO DETAILS

I have a video walking you through the steps on how to create a card using the Large Die of the Month kit. You can view it down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.

While there are so many different seasons and holidays you can create with this set including birthday, Christmas, Easter and Fall, I was in a very summery mood and decided for butterflies.

I am using the Petals and Wings stamp/stencil set from Gina K Designs to decorate a part of my wreath.

The front of my card is stenciled with the Thick Brush Stencil onto Jelly Bean Green card stock using Jelly Bean Green ink from Gina K Designs. I die cut the front panel with the sliding window using my Spellbinders Platinum Machine.

There is a half circle die in the kit that I die cut twice from Gold Glitter card stock to form my circle using liquid glue. I attached this to a circle I die cut from white card stock using the Spellbinders Circle Nestibilities die. Since the white circle die cut was bigger then the gold glitter circle, i trimmed my white card stock down to the Gold Glitter card stock so there was no white edge.

I die cut some leaves which is from the kit, using Fresh Asparagus and Jelly Bean Green card stock and arranged on my circle. The sentiment is from the Petals & Wings stamp set and stamped in Obsidian Ink.

My butterfly is stamped in Turquoise Sea ink and then I added some sparkle with the Turquoise Sea Glitz Glitter Gel and Petals & Wings stencil.

After scoring my front panel, and adding to a Fresh Asparagus card base, I can attach the bottom portion of my sentiment circle to the card panel. Be sure to check out the video for the exact how-to. It is much easier to see in person.

I added my butterfly last as I was waiting for it to dry completely. For a little dimension to the front, I added the butterfly with foam squares.

My next card, is very similar except this time I’m using the Quilted Hearts Background in Cherry Red ink for my front panel.

The Petals & Wings stamp set has this adorable ladybug that I stamped in Cherry Red ink and added Black Glitz Glitter Gel to the my critter.

These slider cards so are much fun and easy to create. You could also a sentiment to the bottom for when the window pops up, but I opted to keep this plain. I love that you can pop this up to display.

Thank you for joining me today.

On The Beach Center Picture Window – Lawn Fawn

Welcome everyone! I had a ton of fun creating this beach card using the Center Picture Window die from the Spring 2019 release from Lawn Fawn.

VIDEO DETAILS

I have a video explaining all the details of this card that you can view down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.

The center picture window creates this fun pop up window scene on the inside of your card. I decided to create a beach scene for mine. I used images from the On The Beach which I stamped in Jet Black ink on Lawn Fawn White card stock. Then colored with my copic markers and cut out with the coordinating die.

Copic colors used are: E37, YR27, YR68, YR21; E79, E77, E74; RV14, RV23; BG49, BG43; YG23, YG03; E57, E35, E33; W2, W0

My card base is created using Mermaid card stock and the Center Picture Window die. I thought the Mermaid card stock was a fun pool color for my scene.

The inside panels were created using the Stitched Cloud Backdrop die and cut out with the Center Picture Window Add On. My beach is created by die cutting Kraft card stock using the hills from the Shadow Box die and lightly ink blending Walnut ink on the top. Then I added splatters of ink for texture.

I also included in my scene some palm trees from the Hammock & Trees die set. I used Cilantro, Paper Bag and Chocolate Bar card stock for my trees.

When all my coloring and die cutting was complete, I added my images to the panels and trimmed off the excess.

While creating this scene, I was thinking of a bunch of ideas for this window. Even though I just have waves in the background, you could add sail boats and/or fish. Just wait until the holidays come! Hope cute is this going to be ?!

For the front of the card, I used the Outside In Stitched Speech Bubble cut from Peacock card stock. I heat embossed the sentiment and added to the front. I actually had a different plan in mind when I created the speech bubble but it didn’t work out os I just added a palm tree and coconut drink.

School gets out this week and I cannot wait to give this to one of the teachers !

I hope you enjoyed today’s project ! I want to make a bunch of these fun scenes!

Be sure to check out the video HERE as it explains things so much better. You can pin any of these pictures to you Pinterest for future reference.

Here are the supplies I used for my card.

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!

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!

Create a Scene with the Picture Changer

Welcome back everyone! I’ve been itching to make this card since I got the stamp set and finally got around to it. Today I’m sharing how I was able to incorporate a scene into my magic picture changer from Lawn Fawn.

VIDEO DETAILS

I have a video that you can view down below or HERE on my Youtube channel. It goes over the details a lot more!

CARD DETAILS

I used numerous stamp sets in my scene including You Are Sublime, So Jelly and Get Well Before and After. I stamped my images onto Lawn Fawn White card stock with Jet Black ink and colored with copic markers. Then used the coordinating dies to cut them out with my Gemini Jr.

Next, I started working on my background. I ink blended Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink for my ocean floor. Then die cut with the Stitched Hillside Borders die.

My background is stenciled with Peacock Feathers with the Mini Cloud Stencil from MFT. Using a piece of Mermaid card stock I ink blended Blueprint Sketch at the very bottom and then added Peacock Feathers with my Life Changing Blender Brushes. I used the Stitched Waves Border to die cut from this piece of card stock.

I attached the waves to my cloud stenciled background. Then lined up the frame from the Picture Changer Add On and ran it through my Gemini Jr. I couldn’t find my shim but it still cut most of it out. I had to trim a few edges but otherwise worked well. This is how you can incorporate your entire scene into your picture changer. The frame is cut from the background and we will use both pieces for the card.

Next, I create my picture changer scene by stamping my whale from the Get Well Before and After stamp set. I created masks using Simon Says Stamp Masking Paper and attached over my image. Then ink blended Peacock Feathers and Blueprint Sketch which will match my water I created.

To start assembly, I add the cloud background that I had trimmed down to 4″ x 5 1/4″ to a piece of Peacock card stock that I’ll be using as my card base. Once my magic picture changer is put together, I added it to the area it was die cut out of using a double layer of foam tape. I love how everything lines up!

Then I attach the ocean bottom with foam tape so it overlaps the picture changer window a little but not enough that it will prevent my mechanism from moving. Super cool right?!

The final step is adding all of my images to the scene. For the sentiment, I die cut a banner from Mermaid card stock using the Fancy Wavy Banners. I stamped the sentiment from Get Well Before and After using Embossing ink and heat embossing with white embossing powder.

I have a fun idea for the turtle on this stamp set too! I hope you enjoyed today’s card. Be sure to head to my video HERE for more details on the assembly.
