Welcome Little One Shaker Card


Hi Crafty Friends,

Last week I shared a baby card I created for a challenge using stamps & dies from Suzanne Cannon's A Way With Words Collection available from Elizabeth Craft Designs. When I was making the challenge card I couldn't decide whether I wanted to make a Z Fold card or a Shaker card, so I ended up making both. Today I am sharing the shaker version of my card.

Both cards use mostly the same stamps & dies, there are a few differences. Being this is a shaker card I used the Garden Notes - Frame It Stitched Ovals die set to create the oval on the front of the card. 

The large oval sentiment is stamped using VersaMark ink and white embossed and then I used Distress Oxide inks to add color to the panel.


The onesie is die cut using patterned paper and cardstock and was layered on to the top of the acetate rather than inside the shaker area.

I also added four corners using the Corners 1 die set. 


For the inside of my card I added another rectangle panel of the patterned paper I used on the front of the card. I also added another of the stamped sentiments onto an oval panel.

You're the Sweetest


Hi Crafty Friends,

Apparently yesterday (22nd September) was Ice Cream Day, so I decided to create any ice cream themed card just for fun!

For my card today, I have used Lawn Fawn's Square Reveal Wheel Add-On die set along with their Reveal Wheel Sweetest Flavor Add-on die sets.

For the background of my card I used Hero Arts Distressed Tile Bold Print stamp. 

 

Here is a quick video to show my card in action.


Here is a look at each of the four different flavors/faces on each of my ice creams that show up when I turn the wheel on the right hand side of the card.

I used the wheel die to die cut paper using four different colors papers from the Watercolor Wishes paper pad, cutting each wheel into quarters and adhering one of each quarter to the white reveal wheel so the white edge of the wheel still showed.

I also added faces to each flavour/color, using stamps from the Sweetest Flavor stamp set and Thanks a Latte stamp set for the one with the moustache.

I stamped and die cut extra ice creams using the same colors of ice cream as that used for the reveal wheel part of the card, and adhered them over the front of my card.

I added the sentiment using then banner from the Double Slider Surprise die set.


For the inside of the card I used Honey Bee Stamps Enjoy stamp and coordinating die set to create the sentiment. I figured 'enjoy' went well with ice cream! I also stamped an ice cream and cherry to the lower left hand corner of my card.

Celebrate Eight Explosion Pop-up


Hi Crafty Friends,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Raquel Mason our challenge hostess for the month continues to issue the challenge.

For our challenge this week we were to make a birthday card and put numbers on it. For example -the recipients age, use background paper with numbers on it, or even a numbered candle die cut if you have one.


For my card today I made a birthday card using Karen Burniston's new Explosion Pop-up die set. In the centre of the pop-up panel I added an elephant from Whimsy Stamps.

I added balloons to the smaller pop-up step panel which is behind the elephant. The balloons are also included in the Explosion Pop-up die set.


To decorate the card I added trims using the Cake Trims die set, the Celebrate and number "8" to the card.


As the action is all on the inside, I kept the front fairly simple. Adding the papers I used on the inside. I also used the Crosshatch Ovals to layer the Happy Birthday Sentiment and added a few more balloons.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.

Sending You Birthday Wishes


Hi Crafty Friends,

Like many others, when the  Alcohol Lift Ink and reinker became available I had to purchase it. It's been a while sitting here, but I finally got around to playing with it.

When I first started playing, I accidentally pulled out my alcohol ink cardstock rather than Yupo paper so was starting to think it wasn't going to work. Fortunately when I started tidying up, I realised my mistake so started playing again and YES!!! this time it worked.

For my card above I used Pool, Flamingo and Aquamarine alcohol inks to color my Yupo paper. Once the paper was dry, I pulled out my Simon Says Stamp Jazz Dance Stencil and used the Alcohol Lift Ink Reinker through the stencil to create my background.

The base card looks more purple in the photo above but it is actually dark blue.

I die cut the panel using Elizabeth Craft Designs Dashing Squares die set.

To decorate my card I used Altenew's Mega You die and Mega Greetings 2 stamp set.


For the inside of the card I added a panel of the left over alcohol inked Yupo paper to the bottom of the card. For the sentiments I used Honey Bee Stamps Enjoy die set and coordinating stamp set.

Welcome Little One Z Fold Card


Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Maryann Einam our challenge hostess for the month continues to issue the challenges.

Our challenge this week is .....
Baby - Create a card using baby as your inspiration, example:  new baby, baby shower, grand baby, baby animals or even just a baby sized card. 


This challenge has come at a good time as I need to add to my stash of baby cards, my daughters keep using the ones I make for all their friends having babies. The last I heard from one daughter is that she knew about 5 friends having babies .... so one down!!!!!

I decided to make a Z Fold card using Suzanne Cannon's Welcome Little One Clear Stamp set along with the Little Ones & Flourished Night Sky die sets all available from Elizabeth Craft Designs.


I added one of the corner dies from the Corners 1 die set to each of the corners except for the lower right hand corner where I added a pair of baby feet. The feet help keep the card closed.


Here is another look at my card when it is open, so you can see the middle fold of the card where I added a dangling star and baby boy sentiment. 

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:
