Foxy Christmas Shaker Card

Hello everyone! Today I'm sharing a fun shaker card using some new and previously released  products from Sunny Studio Stamps! Their stamps are just the cutest and so fun to create with.


I started by stamping the images with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink on Neenah Solar white #80 cardstock, then colored all the images from the new Foxy Christmas stamp using Copic markers. Once all of the images were colored I started building my shaker. I used the Fancy Frames Rectangle dies and die cut out four pieces from the largest rectangles, them used the Fancy Frames Circle dies and die cut two circles from the second to smallest die. I also used a circle die from my stash to die cut a circle to fill in the back of the Fancy Frame Circle. 

I stamped the circle with snowflakes from the Happy Owlidays Stamp set and created some little snow banks using Salty Ocean distress oxide. I wanted to have a Winter scene to coordinate with the rest of my card.



I used patterned paper from the Holiday Cheer 6 x 6 paper pad, trimmed it down to fit my card, and inked the edges with Salty Ocean Distress Ink. The Salty Ocean was just a tad darker than the blue on the patterned paper, but it's definitely hard to see in the photos. I also used a silver Gelly Roll pen and added little dots on the patterned paper for some glistening like snow, but it too doesn't show very well in photos.   

I assembled my shaker card by adhering three of the rectangle pieces together, added the acetate, then the last rectangle piece. I added my sequins and adhered the patterned paper to the back of the rectangle. Next I adhered the two fancy circles together along with the circle stamped with snowflakes and the two snuggling fox. 

I used the Merry Christmas sentiment from the Christmas Home stamp set using Salty Ocean Distress Oxide and a sentiment die strip from my stash.

I added Stickles and gems to my card and adhered it to a 5.5 x 4.25 top folding card base. For the inside I adhered a strip of the same patterned paper I had left over to the bottom, I used a sentiment from the Foxy Christmas Stamp set and the snowflakes from the Happy Owlidays stamp set. 




I have a supply list of products I used below along with the Copic markers I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day,

The Color Throwdown #501 | Wild Soul

Hi Everyone!

I'm joining the The Color Throwdown for the first time, I really love the colors!


I used an older stamp from my stash called Wild Soul from Andrea Gomoll. I love coloring stamps like this.

I started my card by stamping the image on #80 Neenah Solar white cardstock with a copic friendly black ink. I masked the image off to do some ink blending. I used Squeezed Lemonade and Wild Honey distress oxide and the Nesting Hexagon stencil from Neat and Tangled. I used Squeezed Lemonade first and then Wild Honey. Then I removed the stencil and went back over the stenciled area again lightly with Squeezed Lemonade to fill it in a little bit. Then I removed the mask and colored her with Copic markers.

After I finished coloring I used a stitched rectangle die to trim down the paper. I adhered two mats to my card base that are in the color palette, then adhered the top panel on #110 Neenah Solar White cardstock. I then stamped the sentiment with Vintage Photo distress oxide.

I finished off my card by adding the Tonic Shimmer Pen, enamel dots and Glossy Accents. I really enjoyed this challenge!

Here's a close up of my card.





Thanks so much for stopping by today,
Lori

The Birthday Project | Beary Happy Birthday | Magical Day

Hi Everyone! 

My Favorite Things has a new to me challenge called The Birthday Project, and the theme this month is Bears! Bears are my absolute favorite critters to color and I knew I wanted to participate in this challenge!

I used the Magical Day birthday themed stamp set which features this adorable bear as a magician!




I colored the bear using copic markers on Neenah Solar White #80 paper and then die cut the images out with the largest circle die from the MFT Zig Zag Stitch Stax die-namics. I knew I wanted to add layers to my card so I  used the MFT Blueprints 21 to die cut a rectangle panel and the banner strip. The pattern paper for the banner is also from the My Favorite Things. I placed those on my card base along with the image. I white heat embossed the sentiment, die cut it with the MFT Essential Fishtail Sentiments Strips die and popped it up with foam tape. I added some shimmer to my card using the Tonic Shimmer pen, Stickles,and added some sequins.

For the inside I used the same pattern paper using the rectangle die. For the white card I used the same rectangle die, but I did some partial die cutting to make the panel smaller. I finished my card by stamping a sentiment and the little bunny! I love completing my cards like this!

I hope you enjoyed my card and have a great day!

Brutus Monroe Blog Hop Collaboration with Karen Burniston

Hello and Happy Wednesday!

Today Brutus Monroe and Karen Burniston are collaborating together to show you how well these two company products work together!

Today I'm using the Twist Panel Pop Up die from Karen Burniston along with the Birthday Bears stamp set and a sentiment from Joey's Birthday Year 3 from Brutus Monroe.




Here for the front of my card I used some bright rainbow pattern paper with one of the bears from the Birthday Bear stamp set. I colored this with copic markers and adhered the balloons flat to the card with Brutus Monroe craft glue. I stamped the sentiment Time To Celebrate from Joey's Birthday Year 3 stamp set in Raven Detail Ink and die cut it with a flag die, then popped the bear on low profile foam tape. 


For the inside I used more pattern paper. I used the flag dies from the Twist Panel Pop Up, added twine and adhered it to the top of my card. 
For my panel strips I die cut this with Neenah Solar White and ink blended a sky with Rock Candy Surface Ink. I used the scalloped die an a smaller rectangle together to create a window with pattern paper. I then adhered the rest of my images and added some little hearts from the die set. I cut one more scalloped rectangle to go along the bottom to write a personal message.



To finish my card I added Brutus Monroe clear sequins to the front of my card.

I'm linking a video from YouTube to show the assembly of this card from Karen Burniston.

Brutus Monroe Blog Hop Collaboration with Therm O Web

Hello Everyone and Happy Wednesday!

Today we have something a little different for you and it's a whole lot of fun! We are having a collaboration with Therm O Web, so there will be lots of foiling going on! Therm O Web has some new products and a couple of those will be used below. Be sure to start at the beginning of the hop with Brutus Monroe so you don't miss a thing from our design team. Therm O Web has graciously offered a $25.00 gift card to one lucky commentator so be sure to leave a comment on each blog along the hop! And then hop on over to the Therm O Web blog to see what their design team has created for the collab as well!



You should have arrived from Berina Febin's Blog, if not you can always start at the beginning of the hop at the Brutus Monroe Blog!


Today I created two cards using the Deco Foil Transfer Gel with Brutus Monroe stencils. I don't know what it is about this technique but it is so fun and satisfying, and if you've never tried it I highly recommend that you do. 

Here's the first card I made using the new foil from Therm O Web, Shattered Glass, isn't it gorgeous? I also used one of my favorite stencils from Brutus Monroe Polka


To begin my card I used another new product from Therm O Web, Purple Tape! This is a new low tack tape made especially to hold paper in place and not tear it when it's being removed. And it does just that and I love it! 
I taped my stencil partially on the Kraft cardstock and then taped the stencil to my Media Mat. Using a palette knife I spread the Deco Foil Transfer Gel over the stencil and made sure to get an even coverage. Then immediately wash my stencil, palette knife, and mat. You don't want the gel to dry on your things, it will be harder to clean later.   



This is how the Transfer Gel looks after I removed the stencil from the paper. I set it to the side and let it dry for a couple of hours.


Below is how the Transfer Gel looks when it is completely dry, it will be clear.  


It's a good idea to have your laminator on preheating at least twenty minutes before you use it. Cut your foil a little bigger than the piece needed to be foiled, and placed the foil shiny side up into your carrier sheet and run through your laminator. 



Here's what it will look like when foiled. 


I also foiled the word die sentiment using the Deco Foil PeelnStick Toner Sheets. The way I like to do this is to cut a piece of the toner sheet a little larger than my word die, then cut a piece of foil a little larger than the toner sheet and the same way as before, place the foil shiny side up over the toner sheet, place into the carrier sheet and run through the laminator. Then die cut the word with my manual die cutting machine, remove the backing and stick in place! 


I trimmed my card base with a rectangle die and adhered it to a A2 sized card base. I adhered my thanks die with gold thread underneath to dress it up even more and added Acrylic Bubbles for interest and that finished my card. 


Here's my second card using the new Therm O Web Jade foil and the Arrows stencil from Brutus Monroe.



And that's it for me today, which one was your favorite?
Remember this is part of a blog hop, so be sure to leave a comment on each blog along the way!

Your next stop on the hop is Chitra Nair!

Supplies used will be listed and linked below.
