Alex Syberia Designs November Release | Instagram Hop and Giveaway

Glamorous Foiled Shaker Cards,Alex Syberia Designs, November Release,Instagram Hop, how to,handmade card,Stamps,ilovedoingallthingscrafty,stamping, diecutting,cardmaking

Hello friends and Happy Wednesday!

Today I am taking part in an Instagram hop to celebrate Alex Syberia's November Release. Make sure you join me over on Instagram for a chance to win some amazing prizes to their shop! ClickπŸ‘‰ HERE to join me.



For my projects today I have created two glamorous shaker cards! To create the foiled backgrounds 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 smooth or glossy cardstock.

CARD RECIPE

Background - Brilliant Burst Hot Foil Plate

Sentiment - Feliz Navidad Hot Foil Plate (fussy cut) 

There is a Feliz Navidad Die Set too which I didn't have.

Foil - Aura Glimmer Foil

Rather than throwing out the negative of the foil piece I used for my first card, I used it with the solid foil plate to foil onto another piece of glossy black cardstock resulting in another gorgeous background for my second card.

I created these shakers using these pockets. If you don't have any pre-made ones, (which by the way I helped bring to market πŸ˜‰, but the A2s are sold out nearly everywhere) you can make my DIY version with some clear plastic or thin acetate. Click HERE to watch the original frameless/infinity shaker.

These cards would also make gorgeous New Year's Eve cards, simply by changing the sentiment. I chose to make these Christmas cards as the background also reminds me of the twinkling holiday lights, but they definitely could be New Year's fireworks too!

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.

Mini Slimline Balloon Birthday Shaker and Floral Cards | Crafty Meraki

Mini Slimline, Balloon, Birthday Shaker, Floral Cards, Crafty Meraki, CAS,Instagram Hop,Frameless Shaker,Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to,

Hello again! I am back once again today to share with you a few cards I made to help celebrate Crafty Meraki's Second Anniversary

Join me over on Instagram as I am super excited to participate in the Crafty Meraki IG Anniversary Hop. ONE lucky winner will win the FULL RELEASE BUNDLE πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸŽ‰ and ONE additional winner will win πŸ’΅ $100 gift card to redeem towards Crafty Meraki Products!! 



Since it is their birthday I thought a birthday shaker would be fun to make. This mini slimline frameless shaker features the new Party Balloons Mini Slimline Meraki Para-dies that I paired with the sentiments from the Birthday Slimline Tag.

If you are curious about how this shaker was assembled, click HERE for a video I made a while ago. To create the background there was a lot of paper piecing happening here. I die cut the Party Balloons Mini Slimline Meraki Para-dies 3 times, one white layer and two black layers. For the white layer, I ink blended all the balloon colors using distress oxide inks. I then sandwiched the white layer between the two black ones. For the top black layer, I snipped the inside out just using the black frame.

For the next two cards, I kept them super simple and just focused on the flowers. I sometimes like to keep the sentiments off the card until I am ready to send it to someone. This way they are more versatile. Both finished cards are 5X7s.

To create this first one I used masking tape to block off a frame, and then added the ink blended grass and sky. Next, I die cut and pieced together the June Meraki Fora Para-Dies.

I then added the Meraki Sparkle Prismatic Green Crystals. To the centers, I also added some tiny beads.

This next card features the Madison Meraki Flora Para-Dies. The fun part about these dies is the cut lines in the flowers. They allow you to easily do some masking for ink blending, which is awesome if you want to use more than one color. I just slipped post-it paper in the cut lines and then blended.

You can see on the left flower my masking wasn't perfect, but I learned from my mistakes when I blended the one on the right.

To finish up this card I added some Meraki Sparkle Prismatic Blue Crystals, even though they are blue they reflect a lot of purples.

I hope these Merakiversary Cards inspire you today. Happy 2nd Birthday Crafty Meraki, and thank you for inviting me to join you on your special day. To join the Hop click HERE.

Praying for Peace Card,Cards For Ukraine,Honey Bee Stamps, #cardsforukraine, Peace,Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to,Instagram Hop,

Hello friends, 

I am still in disbelief at what is happening in the world right now. It feels like the last couple of years have been robbed from us because of the Pandemic and now we are facing war. Watching the events, leave me filled with feelings of sadness and helplessness for the people of Ukraine. So I turn to my creativity to help me work through my feelings, just as many other cardmakers I know are doing. If you want to share a card and do the same post it using the hashtag #CardsforUkraine

Please join me over on Instagram as many of us from the cardmaking community have joined together for a 2 Day Instagram Hop to flood the grid with Blue and Yellow πŸ’™πŸ’›images to show support and solidarity for the Ukrainian people. 




This card will also be auctioned off soon, as part of the Ukrainian Card Drive for Peace. So make sure to follow this Instagram account to see when it will go live for auction πŸ‘‰@ukrainecarddrive and for more details.
