Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Dies Card

I was so excited to share this card with you and the day after I made the video I found out that Stampin’ Up! was discontinuing the blendabilities line due to inconsistency in manufacturing of the product.  I’m so sad that his product is no longer available as I absolutely love it.  In fact I only had one more color to get.  I truly hope and pray that they will be able to find a manufacture that can produce the quality the Stampin’ Up! desires so we can have these fabulous markers back.

I still wanted to share this card with you as you could still make it using the awesome Butterfly cards however you just wouldn’t have the fun effect that I added on the butterfly.  Just a note you can use our Stampin’ Write markers however you need to make sure they dry really well (they can smear some maybe even after drying) and they are quite as bold.

First here is the card.

Here is a close up of the butterfly.  I created the fun effect on the butterfly with the Blendabilites.  You can check out all the details in the video below.

Hoppy Easter Carrot Treat

I hope you all have an enjoyable Easter no matter what way you spend it.  I enjoy spending the day at church with my family reflecting on the beautiful gift of forgiveness the savior has given me.  I also enjoyed watching my children hunt for eggs and jumping on the new tramp followed by time with the extended family and yummy food.

Easter Carrot

Today I thought I would share with you a fun little Easter treat.  This one is so easy to may.  It’s created with the scallop circle die.  You could also use the circle fram-lits as the also have a large scallop circle.  After cutting the scallop circle emboss it with your favorite texture folder.   Next roll it into a cone shape an hold together with a little ribbon.  To finish it off I added some great paper that I cut just the edge in strips (the new fringe scissors would work perfect for this, but I don’t have them yet.)  Last I added a little bit of candy.  This treat is quick any easy and so fun to make as a cute gift.  It’s even easy enough that you can make it with the kids as a fun Easter craft.

See you later Alligator

How cute are these alligators.  They go so perfect with the Sale-a-bration stamp set and embossing folder.

Alligator Trio Cards

I saw a card similar to this one on Pinterest made by one of the artisans and I just new I had to give it a try.  When I first started I though that she had used the punch to create it but quickly realized it was a die because it was larger than the punch.  However I was inspired to try making one with the punch as well.

Large Alligator Card

I started with 5 alligators made with my punch then it was time to play a bit and see what I could come up with.  This was my first card.  I originally thought I was going to use all 5, but after playing with it a bit I ended up using the banners from the Sale-a-bration.  I love how it turned out.

Alligator Banner Card

Since I had some alligators left over I decided to try another card.  I thought he would look cute in a circle so I came up with this fun card.  I love using the different background stamps to create a unique background.  The washi tape set is fun because it gives you the washi tape look in your choice of colors.  Small Alligator Card

I really love the different texture in these cards created by the embossing folders, designer series papers and punches.  I also love using the clay molds to create an accent in the prefect color for my project.

Monster Birthday Card

Monster Birthday Card

This was one of the cute cards from my Stampin’ Buffet last month.  I really love this monster set, I’m so glad I finally got it.  I’m also in love with this designer series paper.  I’ve had way to much fun with it.  I just really like the color combination.  It’s great for fun vibrant cards.  It’s also really good for boy cards which I tend to find a bit harder to create.

Monster Birthday Card- Close

 

Here’s a little bit more close up of the monster.  I colored him with a blender pen.   I used dimensionals  to make the balloon and the hat really pop.  I also used them behind the Happy Birthday.  Do you love how the fun retro paper works so well with this embossing folder?  I do.

Let is Snow Card

20140206_081143

This is what I woke up to this morning.  Almost a foot of snow and still snowing.  Just in case you are wondering here in Northern Utah the kids still went to school.  I’ve heard it takes 2 feet to get a snow day.

20140206_081136

Yes clearing off the card to get to work was lots of fun.  Thankfully I get to stay home in my nice warm house since it’s my day off.  Hopefully I don’t have to go rescue my husband.  He took the car over the mountain so we shall see.

20140206_081207

You can see a little better how much snow there is on the untouched swing set.

So in light of all the snow I thought that my Let is Snow card would be the perfect throw back Thursday.  This is another card that I created for Artisan a couple years ago, but apparently never shared.

Let it Snow Card - Front

So this is the front of the card.  This card is very unique and different.  Personally I love it.  So The card base is just a regular card.  I can’t remember if it opened or not, but I think it did so you could write a message inside.  The blue background is a fun technique.  I used the white glossy paper that I wish we still sold.  I took a baby wipe and put three dots of reinker in different colors going across the wipe then I wiped it on the glossy cardstock to give it kind of a rainbow look.  Once that was dry I inked my snowflake with versamark and stamped my snowflakes then embossed them with clear embossing powder.  I then used a dark blue reinker and a sponge to sponge over the top so the snowflakes were the only think to show the lighter colors.  The embossing powder resists the ink so you can see the colors underneath.

Let it Snow card- Layers

This card has some fun layers to it.  I folded a white paper.  I believe that it’s a 4 1/4 tall by 11 scored at 2 3/4 on each side and 5 1/2.  Then folded accordion style.  I attached a piece of sticky strip along the side where it was being attached and covered it with the Silver Glass Glitter.  This isn’t the best picture, but it gives you an idea of how the card folds up.

Let it Snow card- opening

So this the the card as it’s opening up. Of course the front is a darling picture of my son playing in the snow.  I used a mini clip to hold it shut when you aren’t opening it.

Let it Snow Card- Partial open

As it starts to unfold you can start to see the magic int he card.  I used the Snow Much Fun set that is now retired to create a fun winter seen.

Let is Snow card- Opened

Here’s the finished card all opened.  My favorite part is the snowflakes that are attached to some bakers twine.  The snow men are stamped and embossed with black embossing powder before they are colored.  It’s kind of hard to see but I also used  some of the Dazzling Details on the snow ball and sides of the snowmen to make them sparkle.  The snow is stamped in white and embossed with white embossing powder to make it pop.

Hopefully I’ve inspired you to think outside of the box a bit.  Here’s one more piece of inspiration.  This is a wall hang I made using the same technique that I used on the background of my card.

Let it Snow wall hang

I used the scallop square die and the alphabet die to cut out the background and the letters.  Both were cut with chipboard and covered in white cardstock.  I hang this one up every year.  I still love it.
