Hello Crafties!!

MFT Camp Create Day 2: Remarkable Resist

Hello Crafties!

Today I have a card featuring the Emboss Resist technique. It entails heat embossing your stamp using a sticky ink and then spreading embossing powder on the inked image. After that you heat the image with a heat gun.

I will be linking this card to MFT Camp Create : Remarkable Resist

I used white embossing powder and the Framework background stamp by MFT for this card.

To create the resist, I used Mustard Seed and Salty Ocean distress oxides. The overlapping of the two created the green color. Isn’t that fantastic?

The 2 cute bears are from the Bitty Bears stamp set by MFT. I had them already colored and fussy cut during the Daily Marker 30 day Challenge.

You can check my other colored images on my instagram feed here.

Hope you like my card.

Window Pop-up Birthday Card!

Hello Crafties!

I am back with a new DT post for Itsy Bitsy.

Birthdays are special and giving a handmade card for a birthday expresses our feelings towards that person.
Also we love surprises on our birthdays, don’t we? 😍
So today, I have a different type of birthday card for you – a surprise window pop up card!

You can see the card in action below :

Read on to find out how to make one….
Step 1 :
I first used the Victorian Window thin cut die by Little Birdie on a blue paper from the Chevron in Aquarelle paper pack.
Step 2 :
Then, I watercolored different colors on a watercolor cardstock and used the little flowers and leaves dies (that come in the Victorian Window thin cut dieset) with it. I assembled the flowers and leaves on the window panel.
* You can use colored cardstock instead of watercoloring *
Step 3 :
I then trimmed a sheet of textured white cardstock by Little Birdie to 5″ × 10″ and scored at 5 inches creating a 5 × 5 inches square card base.
On the front, I stamped the brick stamp with vintage photo distress ink.
Step 4 :
In the next step, I traced the inside of the window on the stamped panel. And then using a cutter, cut the traced part. After this, I adhered the completed window panel (from step 2) on the front panel.
Step 5 :
The next step I did was stamping and coloring these pretty images with various coloring mediums including distress inks. These are from the Jungle Birthday , Birthday Wish and Happy Bird-day stamp sets by Little Birdie.
I also adhered them together in a cluster.
Like this :
Step 6 :
Now, let’s make the inside pop up mechanism.
Cut a strip measuring 0.5″ x 4.25″ and score it at 0.75″ and 2.75″ and 3.5″.
Step 7 :
Stick double-sided tape onto the scored parts as shown.
Place the the strip with 0.75″ scored side close to the fold of the card as shown .
Take out the backing of that part and close the card.
It will look like this:
Step 8:
Now turn the strip to the other side and fold it at the 2.75″ scored part, taking out the backing from the last scored part, close the card again (like before).
It will look like this:
Step 9:
The next step involved adhering the cluster of the colored images (obtained from step 5) onto our created pop up.
* Add details with a white pen to enhance your images *

Step 10 :
I stuck a piece of Vellum on the inside of the window to recreate a real window. I also added strips of black washi tape onto both sides of the front panel to add interest and stamped a sentiment from my stash on the bottom.
And our Window Pop-up Surprise card is ready.
I am sure you would want to make it for your loved ones. Would love to see your creations!

Have a great day ahead!

Hippo Wishes!

Hi Crafties!

Today I have something other than cards for you!

Any guesses?

Well, it’s a money envelope! 💌

I used my envelope punch board to make the envelope with white cardstock.

To add interest, I tore a yellow piece of cardstock and mounted it alongwith fussy cut hippo images from ‘Happy Hippos’ stamp set by Mft.

The ‘happy’ word is from Concord and 9th. I adhered 2 diecuts together to give 3D effect.

I made this envelope on order for a lil one’s birthday!

Thank you for stopping by… Have a great day ahead!

Surprise Pop up slider card!

Hiya Crafties!
I love making interactive cards! It’s fun making them and receiving them too! 😄

So here is one which I made for the Neat and Tangled Throwdown tutorial challenge.

I have a step-by-step photo tutorial for this surprise pop up slider card using Neat and Tangled stamps!
Step 1 :

I blended 3 distress oxides Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron & Salty Ocean on white card panel measuring 5.25×4 inches with a mini blending tool.

Step 2 :
Then I diecut the panel with a rectangle-die measuring 4×3 inches.

Step 3 :
Then I cut an acetate sheet of size 4.25×3 inches ( the same size as the rectangle diecut but 1/4th inch larger on length side to stick it on the panel ).
I then scored the acetate on 1/4th inch from both sides and also in the middle.

Step 4 :
I then applied double sided tape on both the 1/4inch ends.
And stuck 1 end on the frame edge as shown by the arrow.

Step 5 :
I took black chipboard of size 4.75×3.5 inches and stuck the other end of the acetate on the black panel matching the edges as shown by the arrow in the second pic.

Step 6 :
I stamped the cute images from the ‘Wild Ones’ stamp set by ‘Neat and tangled’ on to watercolor cardstock with Versafine Onyx black ink. And colored them with my mozart Dual brush pens.
The critters are so cute, aren’t they? ❤

Step 7 :
After that, I watercolored some circles and diecut them with the Paper Smooches balloon-die.
I also stuck strips of acetate on the back of each of the balloons with double sided tape.

Step 8 :
Then I scored the acetate strip of each balloon and adhered the scored part on the underside of the frame as you can see in the pic.

The balloons stand perpendicular to the base as shown by the arrow in the pic.

I also attached the gift and bird image alongwith the balloons.
These balloons will slide back under the black panel giving an element of surprise when you slide open the card. 😉
I also stamped the frame with the little confetti stamps from the same stamp set with black ink.
Step 9 :
I mounted foam tape on the back side and adhered it to an A2 white card base ( such that it is close to but doesnt touch the black panel and keeps room for it to slide).

Step 10 :
I then arranged and adhered all the stamp images on the lower part of the acetate such that they would seem to be floating.

Step 11 :
Taking a black strip, I heat embossed the sentiment from the ‘Wild for you’ stamp set by Lawn Faw with white embossing powder. And mounted it on the end of the frame.

Step 12 :
I hand drew an arrow with black tip pen, fussy cut it and adhered it on the exposed part of the black panel.

And finally my card is complete! Phew! 😄😜
