First I die cut the cake panel die out of white glitter cardstock and white craft foam. I then created the colored sections of frosting by lining up strips of colored cardstock behind the frosting areas of the cake panel die and then diecutting. I then popped the colored frosting sections in the glitter panel and held them in place with tape. Next, I die cut six candles out of white cardstock and then copic colored them.

I then die cut the “Happy Birthday” sentiment from some halographic cardstock. I then started assembly of the shaker card by adhering the cake panel to an A2 panel of acetate. I then adhered the craft foam cake panel onto an A2 top-folding card base made from 110lb white cardstock. I then fill the wells of the craft foam panel with sequins and chunky glitter from Studio Katia. I then sealed the shaker up by adhering the craft foam to the acetate. I finished the card off by adhering the candles and sentiment to the top of the cake.

Oyez Birthday Card

Oyez Birthday Card

Hello friends! Today I have a fun birthday card to share! I used the new London themed set by Waffle Flower called Oyez to create this fun birthday card!

Oyez Birthday Card

Watch below or on my YouTube channel.

First, I stamped a few images from the Oyez stamp set onto white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then colored the images in with my copics. Once colored I die cut the images out with the matching dies.

Next I started creating my background panel by first ink blending the an A2 panel of white cardstock with distress oxides (Antique Linen & Tea Die) for the ground and distress inks (Blueprint Sketch & Chipped Sapphire) for the sky. Once I finished ink blending I added stars to the sky by splattering white Gansai Tambi watercolor. I then set the background panel aside to dry and then ink blended distress inks (Mowed Lawn & Pine Needles) onto to some shrubs created with the Scenery Die.

I then assembled my scene by gluing the shrubs then adding Big Ben, the double decker bus, and a white frame created with A2 Layers Die with Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue. Next I created my sentiment by white heat embossing a sentiment from the Oyez birthday set onto vellum and then die cutting it out with the Speech Bubbles Die.  I then die cut white craft foam with the matching die for town crier and then adhered my copic colored crier to the craft foam. Lastly, I finished the card by adhering the dimensional town crier and my vellum sentiment to the card.

Go Girl with Foil Accents

Go Girl with Foil Accents

Hello friends! I’m here with a new video! In today’s video, I create some fun and stylish girls with the Go Girl Combo Set. I had so much fun playing with this set, felt like I was playing with paper dolls, so fun changing their hairstyles and clothing. Also see how I use foil accents to really make these girls shine!

Go Girl with Foil Accents

Watch below or on my YouTube channel.

First I stamped the head and shoulders of the three times in light colored inks (Whisper, Gina K. Amalgam Ink & Tea Dye Distress Ink) on three skin tones shades of colored cardstock. I then stamped lips on each girl as well (Red Velvet Gina K., Versamark, & Worn Lipstick Distress Ink). Next, I die cut three different hair styles using the Go Girl matching dies out of different colored cardstocks. I then die cut the sunglasses out of white cardstock.

IMG_1738

To create the foiled lens for the glasses, I first ran some white cardstock through my Xyron Sticker Maker and then adhered Summer Rainbow DecoFoil to the sticky side of the cardstock. Next, I diecut the now foiled pieces of cardstock with the sunglasses die 3 times and then popped out the lens and then put them into the white frames, using a piece of tape to hold them in place.

Next, I placed the hair and sunglasses over the stamped girls and then traced around the hair with a pencil. I then fussy cut around each girl. Next, to create the shirt for each girl, I first stamped stripes from the Go Girl Stamp Set onto different colored cardstocks, in corresponding shades of ink (Red Velvet Gina K. Ink, Wild Dandelion Gina K. Ink, & Tangerine Twist Gina K. Ink). I then die cut the striped sections with the blouse die from the Go Girl die set.

IMG_1913

With the shirts done I had everything to put the girls together. Once the girls were all glued together, I then used my copics to add a slight shadow under the chin to visually separate the chin and neck a bit more. I then finished the A10 card by stamping sentiments on three InstaLove Frames then glueing the girls inside and then adding them onto the card front with craft foam support.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card and video! Thank you so much for stopping by!

For this first card, I started by stamping and copic coloring some of the images from Oyez Stamp Set. I did make some slight changes to the images by adding feather and splitting one on the town crier’s hat, I also made a stripe down the middle of the double decker bus.

When the panel dry I removed the tape and then trimmed it to 4.25″ x 5.5″. Next, I die cut the Rainbow Bridge Dog Die out of 110lb white cardstock and out of white craft foam adhesive sheet.

First, I stamped several images from the We Herd Stamp Set in Antique Linen Distress Ink onto Bristol paper. I then watercolored the images in with several Distress Inks. Once I had finished coloring the images I die cut them with the matching dies and hand cut the bottoms of the rabbits to detach them from the rest of the Bristol paper.

Next, I created wooden frame by directly applying the Distress Ink minis to a frame created with the Picture Frames Die. I then created my background by ink blending Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide over the upper half of an A2 panel. I also ink blended bushes and sprouts created with the Scenery Die to add to the foreground with Distress Oxides Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn. I then adhered the frame to my ink blended background with liquid glue and then adhered the bushes, sprouts and rabbits together and added foam tape to the back.

Next, I partial die cut my pull track using the Pull Tabs Die. I then die cut the tab for the pull tab from the top of the background panel. Next, I assembled the pull tab with the pull tab and bridge die cuts that I die cut out of 110lb white cardstock using the Pull Tabs Die. Once the pull tab was functional I adhered the single rabbit to the bridge and then fully retracted the tab, trimmed the access and adhered the tab to the pull tab. Next, I flipped the background panel over and then added cardstock supports around the pull tab. After the supports were in place I then adhered the panel onto an A2 top-folding card base.

Next, I removed the backing on the foam tape on the foreground layer and adhered that onto the panel. I then stamped my sentiment in Pumice Stone Distress Ink onto a speech bubble die cut with the Speech Bubble Dies. Next, I added strings to my balloons with foam tape then adhered them to the card. I then finished the card by adhering my sentiment with foam tape.
