Sending Sweet Birthday Wishes

 

Hi there friends and fellow crafters. LeeANn here with a fun birthday card I made for my eldest daughter this year using this great stamp and die set from The Makers Movement. I had so much fun with it, and made it interactive as well just to add a little bit more fun. 

First I die cut all the pieces for the Ice Cream Truck. For the window I cut silver Mirror Cardstock and then covered that with Vellum to dull the color a bit. All solid color cardstock came from Stamp Me Some Love, other than the Silver Mirror Cardstock. The Pattern Paper is from an Echo Park Paper Pad. Everything will be linked at the end of this post. 
On a panel of white cardstock I stamped the Panda image and colored it using my Ohuhu Markers. Once that was complete I put the truck together with the image in its spot and started working on the background. Using a stencil from Create & Inkspire I ink blended the grass and sky. 
I cut a strip of white cardstock and stamped the sentiment and figured out how I was going to make the pull tab so that the sentiment could be pulled out. once that was done I assembled the card. Then I decided to work on the inside, somethinng I do not always do. For this I used cardstock from my stash and cut the donuts, icing, ice cream scoops and cone out. I layered them together and adhered to the inside of the card. I added some accents on the ice cream with a white gel pen. I did accents on the Donuts using the same gel pen and a glaze pen. 


I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I enjoyed making it. It was mailed a few weeks ago so the recipient has it now. Let me know, what is your favorite, Chocolate or Vanilla? hers was for sure Chocolate.

CONGRATULATIONS MAMA BIRD!!! A SCRAPPYTAILS PROJECT


Hi there friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here with my May 2021 project for Scrappy Tails Crafts. I had a lot of fun making this project and hope you enjoy it. I have linked my video below the photo so you can see how it was made. Products used are below as well. 



I chose to make a mini slimline card. Off screen I cut my cardbase 7" x 6" and scored at 3.5". I then cut the Deep Blue panel 3.25" x 5.75" and then my white panel 3" x 5.5". 
I had also stamped the images with Versamark Ink and Heat Embossed using Black Embossing Powder. These were then cut out and ready to go. 
Once I had the camera rolling I used Karin Brush Markers to color the images and then blended using Spectrum Noir Glitter Brush pen. 
I used Tim Holtz Distress Oxide in Tumbled Glass to blend the background using a stencil from Create & Inkspire.
I attached all layers and elements using Bearly Art Precision Craft Glue and with that my project was complete. 


Real time this video was 19 minutes, I sped up 2x which made this video just over 9 minutes with intro and outro. I really hope you enjoy this project.

HEY A Stamp Me Some Love Project

 Hey there Friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here with a fun project using paper from Stamp Me Some Love, as well as a stencil, dies and a stamp from MFT. I had so much fun with this project and I hope you enjoy. I do have a video to show you how I made this card that was sped up 4times the original speed. 



This project was fun and easy and while it looks like it may have taken a long time, it was really 26 minutes not counting the die cutting.  That was all done before hand.
step by step instructions:
  • off camera I die cut the heart burst frame die 13 times, once out of each of the colors listed below. 
  • I cut the heart burst backer die one time out of black suede cardstock. 
  • I cut my cardbase using GinaK Designs White Heavyweight Cardstock to 7" x 8.5", scored at 3.5" to make my slimline cardbase.
  • I cut a panel of Black Suede to 3 3/8" x 8 3/8" 
  • I cut the panel left from my cardbase to 8" x 3"
THIS IS WHERE FILMING STARTED So I'll add the video here!!!


  • Using the long panel and distress oxides along with the rolling cloud stencil I did my ink blending in rainbow order and then started over again to finish filling the panel.
  • I cleaned my brushes off on a smaller cardstock panel and die cut the word HEY from that.
  • I used Bearly Art glue to attach the frame to the background and then adhere each panel in its part of the frame.
  • I adhered the black panel to my cardbase then the stenciled panel on top of that
  • I adhered the heart to the panel and then attached the HEY sentiment to a black die of the same as a shadow. 
  • I then stamped the sentiment "You Have a Nice Heart" using VersaFine Clair in Nocturne
  • I added 5 Rainbow Jewels to the panel and my project was complete.

CONGRATS... A MAKERS MOVEMENT PROJECT!!!

 Hi there friends and fellow crafters. I'm so happy to be here with another project using Stamps and Dies from The Makers Movement. Graduation time is coming up quick, so using the Winners Ribbon Dies and Say It Loud Stamps together this card will hopefully make someone happy this year. 





I chose to make a Spring Fold Card for this project, since I knew the top of the card would simulate a graduation cap. 
  1. I first cut White Heavyweight cardstock using the Burst Die, and then the Lemon Sorbet Heavyweight Cardstock using the circle die. 
  2. I cut Black Suede and Lemon Sorbet using the Banner dies. 
  3. Finally I started on the cardbase. I used one panel of 6" x 7" and then adhered another panel of 6" x 6" together to make a total of 6" x 12" for the cardbase. 


  4. I scored on the 3" 6" and 9" marks

  5. Score Diagonally from the 3" to 9" score lines in both directions to make an x. in the center of the 6" x 12" panel. 

  6. at one end of the panel cut from the center )3" mark) down diagonally to make a triangle end 

  7. Fold in the center with the diamond shape up top and the flat panel on the bottom, decorate as desired. 
  8. For my Layers I cut white heavy weight cardstock to 4 1/8" x 4 1/8" and Black Suede to 4" x 4", the bottom panel is Black Suede 5 7/8" x 4" and White 5.75" x 3 7/8". 
  9. Then I was able to get inky. I stamped the Congrats using VersaMark Sticky Ink and Heat Embossed using Gold MBoss.
  10. I stamped on the bottom panel the You're #1 twice, the Trophy and "nothing can stop you now' all using Versafine Clair in Nocturne. Once dry I filled in using a Metallic Gold Sharpie and then used a Spectrum Noir Glitter Pen to add shimmer.

Hello, I Really Miss You... A Stamp Me Some Love Project

Hi there friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here and I want to introduce you to a great company that I found, and have enjoyed a class I took, as well as the paper that I have from the "My Colors" heavyweight Cardstock line.


 

to make this project I used a Stencil/Stamp and Die set from GinaK Designs that was part of the Scrapbook & Cards Today event in March 2021.  I am not sure if this will be released to the public, or when, but I really loved it. If it does become available I will update this post with that information. I have linked everything else down below, including the online class I took from Stamp Me Some Love when I was introduced to this company. 

Here is my video for how I made this project, and below the video will be a quick step by step, unfortunately without photos, that is what the video is for. 



  1. Cut GinaK White cardstock 3.75" x 5"
  2. Cut Accent Opaque Cardstock for cardbase 4.25"x 11" score at 5.5"
  3. Cut "My Colors" Heavyweight Cardstock Black Suede 4" x 5.25"
  4. Die cut the Hello 4 times, using Ballerina Pink, Rose Chintz, Purple Hearts and Cyber Grape
  5. Die Cut the Hello Shadow using Black Suede
  6. using Bearly Art Liquid Glue layer the Hello together, I did Purple Hearts on the top, then Rose Chintz, Ballerina Pink and Purple Cyber Grape on the bottom I then set them aside to dry. 
  7. Using Stencil 1 I used Charming Pink and a blender brush to add three large flowers and partials of another and a small flower to my panel
  8. using stencil 2 I used Purple Delight to add the inside lines to the flowers
  9. using stencil 2 and Verdant I added the leaves to my large flowers
  10. using stencil 3 and purple delight I added the center to my flowers
  11. using stencil 3 and Cheerful (Yellow) I added the shading to my leaves, I do apologize for calling this color Daffodil in my video, it was hard to read the color on the lid. 
  12. I used my antistatic powder bag and then stamped the "I Really Miss You" sentiment with Versamark ink, sprinkled with Gold mBoss Embossing powder and then heat set that. I then cut to size. 
  13. I added the stacked Hello sentiment to my Black Suede shadow, using the Bearly Art Liquid Glue (I love that it dries clear). And then added it to my card panel. 
  14. I used Scrapbook Adhesives THIN foam squares to adhere my embossed sentiment.
  15. I found some sparkle jewels that matched the colors in my card and adhered them down
  16. Adhered all layers using the Bearly Art Glue and with that my project was complete.

Happy Birthday with The Makers Movement

 Hi there friends and fellow crafters, back again with another project using fun sets from The Makers Movement. These sets are just so fun that I keep playing. Keep reading and I'll tell you how I made this fun card. 

FIrst I cut my cardbase to 7" x 8.5" scored at 3.5 giving a cardbase of 3.5"8.5". I then took Rainbow Pattern washi tape and rain it down 2 sides of a panel of cardstock and ran it through my die cutter with the stitched scalloped die. I love the look that was left. I used the stitched panel die with a white panel of cardstock, and the arranged the balloon dies how I thought they would look best. I then cut them as well. 

using black cardstock I cut the balloon "strings" and then stamped/cut the bunny. He looks so happy to be joining the party again. I added some shading to his cute little body using Ohuhu alcohol markers and stamped the Happy Birthday Sentiment using Versafine Clair in Nocturne. 

The pattern paper behind my balloon cut outs is from MFT's Party Patterns 6x6 paper pad.



I hope you have enjoyed this project as much as I enjoyed making it.
