Taylor Swift Inspired Pop Up / Light Up Card | Ralph Tyndall Designs + Hero Arts

Taylor Swift, Inspired, Pop Up, Light Up, Card, Ralph Tyndall Designs, Hero Arts, how to, hand made card, Stamps, stamping, die cutting, card making, ilovedoingallthingscrafty,

Hello friends and welcome back! 

Today's Taylor Swift-inspired card showcases products from Ralph Tyndall Designs. If you're not already following Ralph, be sure to check him out πŸ‘‰ Here  His card-making style is truly unique, and his ASMR Reels are captivating, drawing viewers in with every swipe and tap. I was absolutely thrilled when Ralph invited me to create some projects with his new product line, and I'm beyond excited to share the creations I've made with you. 


HOW TOs (card recipe/supplies at the end)


To begin, I first die-cut the curtains for the stage using RT Stage Curtain Fancy Die. Next, using one of the RT Stage Curtain Stencils, I added the shadowing to the curtain. To the back of the curtains for extra strength and reinforcement, I glued a trimmed 1/2 inch strip down each side of the curtain panels. 

Now, die-cut the crowd. I used the same die cut from the RT Center Stage Crowd Fancy Die and die cut it out two times and just flipped one so that the silhouettes would all look different when staked together. Trim the back crowd layer to be shorter than the front of the audience. To that back layer, stamp out the sentiment from the RT Center Stage Bundle using white ink and heat set it in white embossing powder.

To make the stage Pop up, I created a couple of springs. One, made from red cardstock matching the curtains, that will rest behind the curtain cutouts, while the other, made from black cardstock, will be positioned in front of the audience. Each spring was cut from paper measuring 5.5 inches by 2 inches and scored at half-inch intervals. Once folded and glued in place, they will effortlessly spring into action, adding dynamic flair to the stage. Set the springs, the curtain, and the crowd aside until the card is ready to be assembled.

For the background of the stage, I used another stencil RT Stage Curtain Stencils to blend out the flooring, masking off the back wall. To make it look like a smokey stage with a spotlight in the center, I used masking tape to create a spotlight effect using Intens-ified Black Ink.

Once the background was done, I stamped the images from the RT Center Stage Bundle set onto the background panel. I used the curtain to make sure all my elements would be in view. Since this is also a Light Up card I punched out three holes where the spotlight centers are and one in the beam above that would be hidden by the curtain. To the back of the panel, I glued a piece of vellum to cover up the holes. Next, I taped down the lights from an EZ Light Unit to the openings of the panel. I then placed the battery in the Unit and secured it to the panel behind where the curtain will be. I then used foam tape to allow space between the panels for the lights, wire, and push button. Remove the release tape and attach the background to the card base.

On a white piece of cardstock, I stamped out what looked like a silhouette of a singer. In this case my  "Taylor Swift." I then die-cut the image using the coordinating die from the set. To the image, I used a glitter pen to add details and color to a sparkly dress, boots, and highlights in her hair. I also had to bling out the mic and stand. Once you are ready to add the singer to the scene, use foam to glue her in place which will also add some added dimension.

Now that all the elements are done, it is time to assemble the stage. Start by attaching the red spring to the top and the black spring to the bottom. Glue the curtain in place followed by the front layer of the crowd. Next, add some thick foam to the back layer of the crowd and glue it in place. Add Taylor Swift to your stage and for a touch of bling I added some gems to the stage's background. I should have done this step before the assembly, but I added some white gel pen details to add some highlights. In hindsight, it would have been a lot easier to do that before these pieces were glued in place.

To the inside, I stamped another sentiment from the RT Center Stage Bundle I also added a couple of the rub-on transfer designs to complete the card.

Happy Mother's Day Shaker | Hero Arts

Happy Mother's Day, Shaker Card, Hero Arts, Ink blending, Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to,

Hello friends and happy Thursday, 

It is with a heavy heart that I must say goodbye to the Hero Arts Global TeamπŸ˜”.  My life right now is just a bit crazy busy so I have had to make some tough decisions and step down from Hero Arts. I am truly blessed to have been a part of this amazing team for the past six months and am so very thankful for the opportunity to work with such an amazing Team and Company!

Don't worry I am not going anywhere, I will still continue with two DTs and occasion guest posts. I just need to lighten my load a little as I need to focus on family and work a bit more.

Alright, let's get on with this post and this beautiful shaker card for Mom. 

CARD RECIPE

  • Ink blend the background on Bristol paper using a few of the inks from this My Monthly Hero Kit April 2022 (I also used the yellow from the Sunshine Palette Reactive Cubes.
  • Once the background is completely dry, prep it with antistatic powder and stamp out the floral cling stamp from the kit using Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink and heat set with Clear Embossing Powder.
  • Center the Mother's Day Window Die on an A2 panel of white cardstock and die-cut out.
  • To the back of the panel add an acetate piece to cover the opening.
  • Add foam along the edges. 
  • Fill with clear sequin and shaker bits.
  • Glue to ink blended background.
  • Trim shaker panel.
  • Attach to the card base with coordinating cardstock. 
  • Finish the front of the card with flowers from the Shoes and Hat Fancy Die that have been ink blended.
  • Add enamel stickers to the centers of the flowers and the hearts of the die-cut sentiment.

You Are Amazing Frameless Shaker Card | Hero Arts MMHK April 2022 Global Team Blog Hop

You Are Amazing, Frameless Shaker Card,Hero Arts, MMHK April 2022, Global Team Blog Hop,Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to, rainbow

Hello my friends, and happy Friday! Welcome to the Hero Arts Global Team Blog Hop. Today our design team is sharing inspiration featuring April's Hero Art Releases. If you have started to hop already you may have come from my friend Erica's Blog and you are on the right track. I will share more about the giveaway and the hop list at the end of the post.

For my project today, I created a frameless shaker card, also known as the flat/edge2edge/infinity card... a design/technique that is near and dear to my heart as I introduced it to the card-making community at Creativation 2020, and these pockets are now available from many companies. For a DIY version, which I still make, and to see where these cards all started click HERE to watch a video, as I won't go into details on how to put it all together. 

CARD RECIPE
  • Stamp out the floral image using the 6" x 6" Cling Stamp from the MMHK April 2022 onto Bristol paper using Intens-ified Black Ink
  • Blend out the background using inks to blend out the colors of the rainbow. I used Hero's Reactive ink cubes. 
  • Use the Stencils from the kit to intensify areas of the floral images.
  • Use Copic markers to color in the bees.
  • I added liquid pixie dust to the centers of the flowers and the wings of the bees.

It's Your Day Mandala Card | Hero Arts

Floral Mandala Bundle, It's Your Day, Hero Arts,  Add Ons, Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to,Ink Blending,gold embossing,

Hello crafty friends! Hope you are all having a wonderful week.

I finally got around to playing with the new Hero Arts My Monthly Hero Kit for April 2022 and Add Ons. This kit is so awesome for many occasions coming up, especially for those of us who love flowers. I definitely will share a couple of cards featuring the new kit soon, but for today's card, I am focusing on one of the Add On sets, specifically the Floral Mandala Bundle.

This card could be used for really any occasion. I love making cards like this so that I can just quickly stamp a specific greeting on the inside and make it a birthday card, a wedding card, or any other reason that it would be your day. 

CARD RECIPE

I began this card by cutting a piece of HA Plum Cardstock to A2 size. I then used 3 Distress Oxide Inks to blend out the top of the panel (see list below).

Once the ink blending was dry, I stamped out 3 of the Mandalas and the sentiment from the Floral Mandala Bundle, onto the panel using Versa Mark Ink and then heat set it using Gold Embossing Pwd. I then die-cut the 3 Mandalas using the coordinating dies. To prevent the white from showing under the die cuts I glued the ink blended panel onto another piece of Plum cardstock. I then popped the die-cut Mandalas back into place using foam to elevate each one of them.

For a touch of bling... cause I always need to add bling to my cards πŸ˜†,  I trimmed the panel down slightly and then glued it to a Gold Glitter piece of cardstock cut to A2 size. This was then glued onto a 5x7 Ivory card base. I also added some gem stickers to the Mandalas and Pearls.

Mixed Media Rainbow Art Card | Hero Arts

Mixed Media, Rainbow, Art Card,Hero Arts,Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to, Andy Warhol, My Monthly Hero Kit March 2022,

Ink smooshing, ink blending, stamping, embossing, die-cutting, this card has it all! Hello friends, join me and the Hero Arts Global team for a fun Instagram Hop and you could win a $50 gift card to the shop. Click here πŸ‘‰ HERE.

CARD RECIPE


I began by adding color to a 6x6 piece of cardstock by ink blending using a rainbow of reactive ink cubes. I then ink smooshed the same ink onto the panel to add a layer of detail. Once it was dry I trimmed off the panel to A2 size and reserved the extra piece for the flowers. To the trimmed panel, I used the Abstract Expressionist Bold Prints to add the design to the background. I then stamped the other piece of the panel using Pop Art Flowers and then die-cut them with the coordinating dies.


To the A2 panel, I then used a couple of the colored embossing powders from the My Monthly Hero Kit March 2022 to heat emboss onto the panel. 


Next, I added Hero Paste using the Abstract Frames Stencil. Once that was dry, I added glue from a zig pen to the raised areas and let it dry a little until it was tacky. I then pressed a scrap piece of glimmer foil into the tacky areas to leave some gold foil behind. 


I then die-cut the Museum Frame Fancy Die and added it to the colorful panel at an angle and then to the center of the frame I added the Pop Art Flowers that I had die cut earlier. To embellish the centers and tie in the gold from the background, I added some gold pearls.


And finally, this masterpiece was finished with a quote from Andy Warhol, that I then fussy cut and glued in place.


Mixed Media, Rainbow, Art Card,Hero Arts,Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to, Andy Warhol, My Monthly Hero Kit March 2022,

I hope you enjoyed this Mixed Media Rainbow Art Card. I had so much fun getting inky and creative with this. If these kinds of cards weren't so time-consuming, I would definitely be making more. It's the dry time that kills me! Do you have any tips for fast mixed media sessions? Let me know!


Thank you for stopping by and until next time... Happy Crafting!
