Joy!Crafts Pop Up Butterfly Card

Thursday, April 16th, 2015

I really have a thing for apertures and pop ups.  They lend so much interest to your cards.  Today I want to share a new one I just discovered.

P1140990

This is a die produced by Joy!Crafts which is in the Netherlands.  This Butterfly Pop Up is designed by Gerti Hofman and it’s just gorgeous.  What threw me was when I opened the package the die is mounted on a piece of heavy acrylic.  When you run the die through your Sizzix Big Shot (or whichever die cutting machine you use) you leave the die attached to the acrylic and you not only get your butterfly aperture cut but you also get the score lines where you’ll fold the piece to fit in your card base.  (I cut the white piece the same size as the acrylic which was 5 1/2″ x 11″ and then cut a card back 6″ square.)  I used the new Sizzix Precision Base Plate and had to do a little fiddling to adjust for the thickness of the acrylic.  It cut beautifully though.

P1140994

I used corner pieces from the new Spellbinders Arched Elegance Pocket dies to form my butterfly (well it was supposed to be a butterfly) on the front of the card.  This die set also comes with the prettiest pocket piece.  I can’t wait to use it on a mini to tuck little bits and pieces into.  The little flourishes (with imagination you might consider them the butterflies antenna, lol) come from a Marianne Designs Creatables die called Vintage Swirls, it’s one of my favorites.

P1150002

The die cut butterfly is just gorgeous when you back it with a pretty decorative paper.  I used Graphic 45’s Once Upon a Springtime Classic collection for the card base.  The die cut leaving little prongs that extend it from the card base about 1/4″ out,  the result being this great 3 dimensional look when the card it opened.

P1140998

To finish the inside I used another Joy!Crafts collection called Roses, Have a Beautiful Day.  I used one of the corners to frame my sentiment.  That’s what drew me to this stamp set, these gorgeous border frames, so many opportunities to use them.  I actually cut the one I used apart because it had a strip across the top as well.  You can always cut your stamps to better fit your needs, just use good scissors and a careful hand.

I hope you’ll join me on the video as we walk start-to-finish during the process of this card.  Be sure and check out Joy!Crafts as well as the other vendors I’ve used in the Cut at Home store, links will be provided directly below the video.

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

Mother’s Day Cards with Background Stamps

Monday, March 30th, 2015

Happy Monday, it’s hard to believe that April is almost here already, this week is already Easter! It got me thinking about the next big card day around the corner, Mother’s Day! Today I have two Mother’s Day cards using Background Stamps!

The first card that I made is a monochromatic card. I used the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Background stamp called Dots & Floral. You get two stamps in this set, for my card today I used the Floral stamp. I decided to do a Monochromatic card, I started with a lighter purple paper and used a purple stamp pad to stamp the image. I made a 5″x7″ card base in a lighter purple as well. I used a Spellbinders die set, Heirloom Rectangle for this project. I cut the stamped image for the center, then I used a darker purple for the die cut image. I also cut the other element that was used for the center of the card in the darker purple.

I inked the edges of all pieces before assembly. Finally I added the roses, the sentiment “You Inspire Me”, which was one of the element tags from Heartfelt Creations Roses on Raindrops paper package. I inked the edge of the tag too. Here is a look at the finished card:

You Inspire Me 2

For the second card, I used a JustRite Stampers background stamp called Elegant Damask, I absolutely love this stamp! I chose a light yellow cardstock to use for stamping the image. I used the same ink color as I did for the previous card. Note how much different the color is just by changing the base that I stamped on! I found a coordinating card stock and cut a 5″ x 7″ base for the card.

I added some washi tape, and I stamped the “Mother” on the yellow card stock as well. I used the same element from the Heirloom Rectangle set. I also used Heartfelt Creations Cut, Mat, Create set 1A for the rectangle to back the sentiment. Finally I added a little bling! Here is a look at that finished card:

Here is a list of the supplies used that are available on the Cut@Home site:

CMS220 – Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Dots and Floral Background Stamp
CL-04320 – JustRite Stampers Elegant Damask Background Stamp
HCD2-749 – Heartfelt Creations Cut Mat Create 1A die set

I also used the Spellbinders set mentioned, Raindrops on Roses tag, Hero Arts Grape Juice ink, Studio 112 Mother Stamp, Gems, roses and card stock.

Isn’t it amazing how different the same color looks stamped on a different card stock! These cards were fun and easy to make.

I hope that you enjoyed my post today, til next time…

Thanks and Happy Scrappin!

Introducing Spellbinders Celebra’tions Ink Pad

Friday, March 20th, 2015

Karen N here today sharing a couple of cards that I made using the Spellbinders Celebra’tions line.  I made two cards for today’s post that are essentially the same, but one is colored with alcohol markers and one is colored with Tim Holtz distress watercolor markers. The reason that I did two cards essentially the same is to highlight the Celebra’tions Berry Black ink as it can be used for coloring in BOTH alcohol and watercolor techniques.  This is an unusual trait in ink-pads and is so super handy!  These are the cards I made:

CAH_ElephKn

The card on the right is colored with Copics, and the card on the left is colored with the  Tim Holtz distress watercolor markers. Both are stamped with Celebra’tions Berry Black ink!  I cut the card fronts, and the pink dotted frames using my Big Shot and the Spellbinders Celebra’tions Pierced Rectangles.  I love the cool detail these fabulous dies add to a card.  Then I stamped and colored the image and stamped the sentiment.  Both are from Spellbinders Celebra’tions Your Day.  The patterns are from the Celebra’tions Print pack, and the teal outline around the image is from Spellbinders Celebra’tions Assorted Solids.  Crafting with this paper line is so easy as everything goes together.  LoVe that!  The “HB” sentiment is cut with Spellbinders Nested Lacey Pennants.  Finally, I added some embellishments – button and twine bow and some Candi Dots.

I made the watercolor card on this video, so you can see my step by step process:

Tudor Rose with Stephanotis Flowers Card

Thursday, March 19th, 2015

Today’s card shares three different dies and one stamp.  I love combining different dies for those one of a kind cards.  Flowers and butterflies always seem to be a perfect match and that’s what I combined today for you. This is a standard A2 size card, portrait style, 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″.

Tudor Rose

I used Spellbinders Card Creator dies Tudor Rose for the yellow background.  Don’t you love how it cuts those gorgeous designs out?  I stamped the sentiment with JustRite Stampers Black-Eyed Susan Collection.

Tudor Rose-001

The butterfly was cut from Tim Holtz Alterations Die Butterfly Duo, it’s Duo because not only do you get dies in two sized butterflies you also get the matching Texture Fades embossing folder.  I love two for one things!  I colored my butterfly with the new Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Cracked Pistachio along the bottom and the edges.  Even though you don’t see it here I sponged Spun Sugar Distress Ink across the top blending the two together.  It was beautiful but just not the right shades for my card.  I pulled out a Lindy’s Stamp Gang Starburst Mist in Winter Jasmine Gold which gave the perfect accents.  A few Diamond Stickles and a wrapped body with netting completed the little guy.  Check out the video and I’ll share how I created the body and antenna with the netting.

Tudor Rose-003

The flowers come from Sizzix Susan’s Garden, Stephanotis.  I used the soon to be release Angel Craft Podge on the leaves to give them that waxy sheen.  The centers were colored with Shabby Shutters Distress Ink and a half back pearl placed in the middle.  I matted the die cut with cream colored mat edged with Vintage Photo distress ink and repeated the same mat for the inside.  I did use the Sizzix Magnetic Platform for wafer thin dies in my Big Shot, it really helps with you’re making flowers with so many small dies.

I hope you’ll join me on the video, I’ll share the complete start to finish process.

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!
