Snowflake Spinner Card | Honey Bee Stamps

Snowflake, Spinner Card, Honey Bee Stamps,interactive, christmas,how to,handmade card,Stamps,ilovedoingallthingscrafty,stamping, diecutting,cardmaking,Lovely Layers Large Snowflakes,

Hello Crafty Friends!

Today I have an interactive card to share with you. It's been quite a while since I made a spinner card and thought the new Lovely Layers Large Snowflakes would be perfect for this type of card. You will have to check it out in motion on my Instagram, it is so pretty in action.

CARD RECIPE

Snowflakes - 2 of each size dies - Lovely Layers Large Snowflakes

Circle - Window and frame - Sweet Stacks: Circles Dies

Sentiment - Mini Messages: Holiday Stamps

Paper - Holiday Wishes Paper Pad

Ink - Bee Creative Intense Black Ink Pad

Gems - Holiday Wishes Gem Stickers


Die cut the snowflakes. Assemble the 3 sizes together to create the front snowflake. To the back of the snowflake secure a clear thread along its center and sandwich the remaining 3 snowflakes on top. Set aside to create the window for the spinner.


Layer the pattern paper over the card base front and use the smaller circle to die cut through both layers. This will make the front window match the card base front perfectly.  Set the pattern piece aside.

Find the center of the circle that is now die-cut from the card front. Affix the clear thread to the top and bottom of the card base. To make this easier I used low tack tape to stretch out the thread first and then added a little drop of glue to the tread followed by tape to each end. For extra securement, I then pulled the thread to another area of the card base and secured that end with another piece of tape, I then snipped off any excess thread. 

Place the pattern paper piece over the card front to cover up all the thread and tape and secure everything in place. Finish the window by adding a frame to the circle. I used two stacking circle dies.

Stamp out the sentiment and finish the card with some gems to match. Behold, your spinner masterpiece is now complete!

With a flick of the hand, watch the magic unfold. Twirl the snowflake around and then lay the card flat and insert it into your envelope. Once the recipient removes it from the envelope and opens it up to read it will surprise them with a spin.

Hope you enjoyed today's handmade spinner card. Thank you for stopping by and until next time... Happy Crafting!

Alex Syberia Designs November Release | Blog Hop and Giveaway

Alex Syberia Designs, Christmas,Glimmer Hot Foil,Poinsettia,Instagram Hop, Noel, Feliz Navidad, Ink blending, how to,handmade card,Stamps,ilovedoingallthingscrafty,stamping, diecutting,cardmaking

Hello friends!  

Today I am excited to be taking part in a Blog hop featuring the November Alex Syberia Release. Make sure you leave a comment here and the rest of the stops to qualify for a chance to win some fabulous prizes! If you already started hopping you have just come from Hannelie 's Blog. Stay tuned to find out more about the giveaway and where to Hop next!


So let's dive into the projects I am sharing today.

To create the foiled images you will need a Foil system. I used the Spellbinders Hot Foil System along with the Platinum 6 Die Cutting Platform. For negative foil transfers, you will need a solid foil plate. I also find I get the best results with this cardstock.

CARD RECIPE

Background - Brilliant Burst Hot Foil Plate

Wreath - Holiday Wreath and Branch Stencil and Die Set

Sentiment - Feliz Navidad Hot Foil Plate (fussy cut)

Foil - Aura Glimmer Foil


I absolutely love how this card turned out. It is definitely a lot more glamorous in person. Pictures do not do this card justice as the Aura Glimmer foil gives it so much sparkle and shine!

This next card features the show-stopping Joyful Poinsettia Die Set! It is absolutely gorgeous😍

Just look at this gorgeous Poinsettia Bloom! I used 5 different shades of cardstock and ink-blended the tips of the petals with pink ink. I then added a mist of pink splatters to them. I also added foam in between the layers to give it dimension and curled the tips of the petals.

With the negative of the foiled background from my first card, I was able to use it to create this poinsettia tag.

To create the die I just cut the panel into 4x3 rectangle and added the poinsetta to the top. I did not use the last layer of the poinsettia to make it slightly smaller, I then punched a hole through one of the petals and added a ribbon through it to tie on a gift later.

Jingle Jewel Cards | Crafty Meraki #Merakicraftober

Jingle Jewel Cards, Crafty Meraki, #Merakicraftober,how to,handmade card,Stamps,ilovedoingallthingscrafty,stamping, diecutting,cardmaking, christmas, holiday cards, Effortless Artistry Paper,Gilded Holiday Greetings,

Hello friends!

Today I am celebrating Crafty Meraki's #merakicraftober Christmas Extravaganza over on Instagram where I feature the process of making these cards. Make sure to click this link πŸ‘‰HERE to watch and enter the HOP and Giveaway!


CARD RECIPE
  • To start, first I die cut the Jingle Jewels EAP (Effortless Artistry Paper) using the coordinating Jingle Jewels Para-Dies.
  • Next, I hot-foiled a ton of sentiments using the Gilded Holiday Greetings Foil Plate in a few foil colors and then used the Gilded Holiday Greetings Dies to cut them out. 
  • I then used the Under the Mistletoe Meraki Shimmer to do some dry embossing on the background papers, and then ink blended the edges of the panels with a coordinating ink color.
  • Once all the pieces are done all you need to do is assemble each card. First I arranged the Jingle Jewels on the the front of the panel and then used Press and Seal to pick them up and flip them over. For each ornament, I used gilded thread and added it to the top using a little piece of tape. 
  • Add glue or foam to the back of the ornaments and stick them onto the front panel. 
  • Straighten and secure the gilded thread behind the panel with tape, sandwiching them between the card front panel and the card base.
  • Add your Gilded Holiday Greetings to the front of the card and finish by adding Meraki Sparkle Gold for some sparkle.

As you can see this card was done the same way, only using different colors.

If you love mass-producing and sending out Christmas cards but don't have time to spend coloring them all, these Effortless Artistry Papers (EAPs) are the way to go! Crafty Meraki has so many variations of them now you can skip the card-making steps you like doing the least.

For this last card, I just turned it into a shaker card using some plastic packaging and glued the Jingle Jewels on the front of the plastic panel.

Christmas Cardinal Scene Pop-Up Frame Card | Honey Bee Stamps

Christmas, Cardinal, Scene, Pop-Up, Frame, Card,Honey Bee Stamps, Jingle Bells,Jennifer McGuire Inspired,Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to,

Hello, my friends, and happy Monday. To all my American friends, I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend. I am thankful for YOU! 

Today I have a special card inspired by the amazing Jennifer McGuire. She shared this Pop-Up Frame technique a few months ago and I thought it was brilliant and had to give it a try with the gorgeous Make It Merry Release from Honey Bee Stamps.

CARD RECIPE

Christmas, Cardinal, Scene, Pop-Up, Frame, Card,Honey Bee Stamps, Jingle Bells,Jennifer McGuire Inspired,Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to,
  • To create the pop-up, I cut 2 pieces of paper that measured 5.5x1 inches and scored them at every 1/4 inch. Then accordion fold each piece and glue them to the sides of the back of the frame. These will create the springs for the pop-up card.
  • For the background, I used the Kaleidoscope 3D Embossing Folder and then added some splatters using the Bee Shimmery Liquid
Christmas, Cardinal, Scene, Pop-Up, Frame, Card,Honey Bee Stamps, Jingle Bells,Jennifer McGuire Inspired,Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to,
  • Glue the springs onto the background, and once dry add the background to a card base.
  • Stamp the greeting from the Home for the Holidays set in white ink and heat set it.
  • Pop it onto the card front.

The cool thing about these pop-ups is that they do press down nicely and can be mailed. This one is a bit bulky so I am sure it will require extra postage. 

I hope you were inspired by my Christmas Cardinal Scene Pop-Up Frame Card. Thank you to my uber-talented friend Jennifer McGuire for this inspiration. I am sure I will be making more of these pop-ups in the future!

Thanks for stopping by and until next time... Happy Crafting!
