Scenic Snapshot Clean and Simple Cards | Spellbinders


Scenic Snapshot Clean and Simple Cards | Spellbinders by ilovedoingallthingscrafty.com

Happy November friends!

Wow, I still can't believe how quickly this year has flown. Today I have a few cards to share with you featuring a few of the sets from the Scenic Snapshots Collection. I think these cards are perfect for someone who loves to travel or maybe even a retirement card. 

Also, today starts Kathy Raccosins 30 Day Coloring Challenge for anyone that wants to participate it is a great way to improve on your coloring skills, so click on the link for more information. I will try to participate as often as I can this month so follow me on Instagram to see what I color.

CARD DETAILS

Sometimes, especially when it comes to small die-cut pieces I like to cheat a little. Rather than die-cutting each piece out of different cardstock, I like to die cut everything out of white cardstock and then color it. I find this saves me so much time, plus the results you get are very different as you can add dimension and layers in your coloring.

For this first card, I ran the dies from the SPRINGTIME SCENIC SNAPSHOTS through the die machine using Neenah Solar White cardstock. I then used Copic markers to color each piece in.

Next, I die cut a circle from the panel that will be the card front. I then used a few Distress Oxide inks to blend out the colors on the background. Tumbled Glass for the sky and Mowed Lawn for the grass.

To make the scene fit within the circle I ran the treeline die cut along with the same circle die to trim off the edges.

I then pieced and glued all the die-cut pieces onto the circle cut out.

Before gluing the scene in place, I stamped the sentiment from the WILD AND FREE stamp set along the die-cut circle edge by curving the stamp in my positioner.

For this next card, I repeated the same exact process as my previous card. Once again using Copics on the die-cut pieces and Distress Oxide Inks on the background.

Difficult to see in the picture, but the stars moon and the snow are sparkly as I added a layer of Liquid Pixie Dust to them.

This sentiment also comes from the WILD AND FREE stamp set, it is such a great stamp set to have for the traveler in your life.

Spellbinders Card Kit of the Month for January | 7 Quick and Easy Valentine Day Cards


Hello! Today I am sharing 7 Valentine Cards using Spellbinders Card Kit of the Month for January I love how these supplies all coordinated with each other to make cardmaking quick and easy. Just look at all the goodies included in this kit!
Card Kit of the Month Membership
I have to say the dies and the patterned paper stack are my favorite part of the kit. I used almost everything included in the kit at least once. The only products I used that were not included was a stamp positioner, black ink, some silver foil cardstock and the die cutting machine. For those of you looking to make your own handmade Valentines Day cards, I would recommend this kit for you!  Just look of all the cards I whipped up in a few hours.

CARD DETAILS

These large premade dies make cardmaking so quick and easy, definitely a time saver. For my first card, I just popped 3 of them up with foam and glued them on to a trimmed piece of patterned paper that I had glued onto the prescored red card base.

For card #2, once again I used the premade die cuts as the focal point. Stamped a sentiment from the stamp set included in the kit underneath the dies onto this trimmed piece of patterned paper that I had glued onto a card base and voila, all done card number 2!

For this next card, I used a couple of different pieces of patterned and solid cardstock to create some layers for the background. I then simply added the die cut pieces and finished it off with a few enamel hearts.

Again here I used a piece of patterned paper for the background of the card and added the premade dies as the focal point. I also stamped the sentiment on the top left corner using one of the stamps from the included stamp set. Finished off the card once again with the enamel hearts.

For card #5, I first die cut the typewriter using the dies from the kit and then on the paper I stamped the sentiment from the included stamp set.  Popped the typewriter onto some diecut hearts that I had glued directly onto the striped paper and then finished the card with the enamel arrow stickers along the bottom edge.

On this next card, I used the die cut sunglasses as a focal point and then built around them with the other die cuts that I had glued onto the white cardstock strip to break up the patterned paper. I finished off the card by stamping the sentiment below the grouping which I thought made a great play on words for "eyes".

And for my final love birds card,  I began with stacking a few of the patterned papers together to create somewhat of a frame around the lovebirds and then used the flower dies to cut out flowers using coordinating cardstock to add around the corners of the frame. I then finished up the card once again by stamping out the sentiment and adding the enamel dots and hearts.

As you can see from my card examples they are all super simple designs, making them quick and easy to put together. It is so hard to mess them things up when everything is preselected for you to coordinate together.

Hey Sugar Shaker | Partial Shaker Window | Wobble Card


Hello my crafty Friends!

For my card today I'm using this darling set that Spellbinders sent me. It is The Shake It Up Stamp and Die Set, The Perfect Match by Debi Adams. Punny cards are always so much fun!

Hey Sugar Shaker | Partial Shaker Window | Wobble Card by ilovedoingallthingscrafty.com

Here is how this card was made:
  • I first began by stamping my sugar shaker on to some Bristol paper using blackout ink.
  • Next I colored the shaker in with Copic Markers (Bottle-B00 and RV10, Cap-C1, C3, and C5)
  • I then die cut the image with the coordinating die.
  • To the Sugar bottle I added glossy accents and set it aside to dry.
  • To create the window for the shaker I used scissors and cut out the opening along the right side of the panel. I then traced that cut onto the card front of the card base and also cut it out.
  • Now that the window was cut from the card panel, I added my stamped sentiments. 
  • Next, I used a plastic sleeve to create the window. I lined up the creased edge of the plastic along the outside of the panel and adhered one side of the sleeve to the back of the card panel.
  • Next I added the confetti to the pocket along the crease and then added a thin strip of double sided adhesive tape along the edges of the window. Folded over the other side of the plastic sleeve and sealed the pocket.
  • I then took the finished card panel and added foam tape to the back, lined it up to with the card base and glued the pieces together.
  • For fun and to add a sprinkle look, I added the little sprinkled stamps along the edge of the window.
  • To complete the card, I added a little action wobble spring to the back of the bottle and adhered it to line up with the top of the window.
