You Have My Heart

Hello Crafties!

Today I have a card using stamps by Jane’s Doodles.

I just love these adorable images. I first blended some Cracked pistachio distress oxide ink and then blended Picked raspberry over the plaid stencil.

I colored these images with alcohol markers. The sentiment is by My favorite things.

Snow Much Fun!

Hello Crafties!

Though it doesn’t snow where I live, I keep dreaming of it. So much that all my winter cards have some amount of snow in them!

Today’s card is so not an exception!

The little mouse is from the ‘Warm Wishes’ stamp set by Jane’s Doodles. I simply love that stamp set! I keep picking it up again and again. You can find my cards featuring this stamp set here, here and here.

The snowflake is also from the same stamp set. And so is the sentiment.

I ink blended different shades of blue distress oxides for the background. Comment below if you wish to know the exact names.

Hi Crafties!

I have an interactive card for you today that I made for Christmas.

With distress oxides I created a galaxy background.

When you pull the Santa hat, out comes a surprise.

It is a hidden mechanism with a surprise wish.

I love how adorable these little bears are.

Interactivity adds so much fun to cards.

You are my Everything!

Hello Crafties!

Flowers are so inspiring that they make great art designs. They create that timeless feel.

Today I have a floral card using faux watercolor stamps.

Altenew makes awesome floral stamps and one of them is the Watercolor Wonders stamp set that creates faux watercolor effect.

It creates such pretty flowers that is helpful if you are new to watercoloring.

I used different distress inks and some hero arts inks for the card.

The stripes stencil is also by Altenew. I used gray to help enhance the floral colors.

The sentiment is from another Altenew stamp set called Painted Rose.

Finished it off with some splatters and clear sequins.

How do you like my faux floral card?

Howdy Gullfriend! |MFT 2019 Card Design Superstar | Innovation Master

Howdy Crafties!

Saying that I love creating interactive cards would be a huge understatement! πŸ˜†

So like always I am super excited to participate in the MFT 2019 Card Design Superstar challenge – Innvoation Master.

I created my card using the Seaside Gulls stamp set by MFT.

It is such an adorable set. I colored the images with my alcohol markers!

You can the see my card in action below :

For the background, I used the cloud stencil (by MFT) twice. First to create clouds and then to create waves.

But before that I used the Denim background stamp (MFT) on white cardstock.

For the half cut front panel I used the wavy-die from the Surf and turf dienamics.

I used Tumbled glass, Salty ocean and Peacock feathers distress oxides for the background.

I have a video tutorial showing how I created my background below:

Part 1 :

Part 2 :

The interactive mechanism was made using the following dienamics :

MFT Trifold slider dienamics

MFT Double Slider Loop slots dienamics

You can see the Trifold slider mechanism in the pic above, but the double slider loop mechanism is hidden behind the front panel.

The upper seagull pops up with a mechanism I made on my own with a few trial and errors. You can see it in the pic below :

I created the L shaped mechanism using a couple of brads. The upper brad is fixed to the panel while the lower one (that connects the 2 strips) is moving. The lower strip is attached to the double slider loop mechanism which when pulled, pushes the seagull above the panel.

Phew! πŸ˜…

Explaining interactive mechanisms takes as much effort as much as creating them. 😜

The flying seagull is attached to the trifold slider mechanism with a strip of acetate to show it… flying! πŸ˜‚

I created one of the two kissing seagulls by mirror stamping.

I stamped the seagull image on a glass block and then pressed my cardstock on it. See the image below :

I really loved creating this card as this adorable seagull stamp set simply makes me so happy.

I will definitely be making more cards with this set.

How did you like my card?

Would love to know your FEEDBACK regarding both the card and the video!!
