Forever Grateful| Altenew September 2019 Inspiration Challenge|I love Math Challenge 14

Hi Crafties!

Shaker cards are really fun to make and evenore fun to receive. Today I have a shaker card for you with stamps by Altenew!

For the backgrpund I used a stencil by Craftangles with abandoned coral distress ink.

I created softer edges at the corners of the card panel.

The stamp set is by Altenew called Wild Hibiscus.

I colored the images with alcohol markers.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set.

I diecut a small heart from the base and created the shaker panel.

Hope you like my card!

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

Howdy Crafties!

Saying that I love creating interactive cards would be a huge understatement! 😆

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! 😅

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! 😂

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!!

Animal Kingdom | MFT 2019 Card Design Superstar | Coloring Virtuoso

Hiya Crafties!

I love to color. With any medium I can get my hands on! Whether the final coloring looks awesome is another matter! 😜

I am entering today’s card in the MFT 2019 Card Design Superstar – Coloring Virtuoso

For this card, I used the Safari Friends stamp set by MFT.

This is my first time doing the no-line coloring technique with alcohol markers!

And boy was it challenging! 😥

For the stamping I used the MFT premium dye ink in Grout Gray.

I love that ink for its subtle color! ❤

I wanted to create a postcard scene with animals.

I used the cloud stencil by MFT along with Peacock Feathers distress oxide for the sky.

This is how the scene looked after stamping and before coloring!

And the final coloring :

The trees are stamped with log stamp image form the MFT Happy Hedgehogs stamp set.

And the leaves on the trees are from the MFT Safari friends stamp set itself!

I love creating happy scenes and this card was one of them!

Would love to know your FEEDBACK !!

Thanks A Bunch!

Hiya Crafties!

I have a very different card to show you.

It’s called a pendulum card and it was pretty easy to make in comparison to my other interactive cards.

You can see the card in action below:

The burning of the Amazon forest has been in the news lately.

We really need to be grateful to our forests and jungles and the animals residing in them.

Dedicating my card to this cause….

I have used the Critter Party and Label Love stamp sets by Mudra.

Saying that I love these stamp set would be an understatement.

They have such adorable images and awesome sentiments!

For the clouds, I used the cloud stencil by My Favorite Things.

Another one of my favorite.

Distress oxides are my go to inks for backgrounds.

I wanted to create a cheerful bright card. I guess I was successful in doing so!

What do you think? 😉

Window Flower Pop-Up Card

Hello Crafties!

Today I have a card that I made using stencils.

You can see the card in action below :

I have used stencils by CraftTreat.

The shaded flower stencil is pretty easy and fun to use. Lining up the layers is pretty simple too. I used distress oxides for the layering. I love using distress oxides for most of my inking. They are totally worth the investment in my opinion!

This is a window pop-up card. I have a tutorial for a similar card here.

So when you open the card, the inside image pops up. So fun!

The inside sentiment is by Gina K designs. And the outer one is my Mudra stamps.

For the outer panel, I used the Polka dot stencil again by CrafTreat.

I loved making this quick and easy card! Would you make one too?

Metallic Projects

Today I have not one but three tutorials using Little birdie Metallic Wax – Copper Blaze.

This is my DT post for Itsy Bitsy. You can find the post here.

This product is so versatile, you could use it on a variety of mediums and finishes. It gives instant shine to your projects.
Lets get started –

Project I :

The first project I am showcasing is a home decor project.
Step 1:
I used Little Birdie embossing paste in Frosty Fizz with Little Birdie 14×14 inch stencil Classy Lace on black cardstock. The cardstock measured 7″ × 12″.
I used only half of the stencil.
* Spreading the paste evenly with a spatula is the key*
Step 2:
It looks like this.
With the help of a heat gun, I got this texture of the paste like below.
Isn’t it gorgeous?
Step 3 :
Then I used my Star product – Little Birdie Metallic Wax in Copper Blaze. I used my finger to dab the wax on the elevated parts of the design. I purposefully avoided some areas and kept them white. I also let the wax spread a bit on the cardstock too. Its unto you how you want the design to look.
Step 4:
I adhered the cardstock on heavyweight chipboard of the same size.
To further decorate the panel, I used Pearl drops by Little Birdie.
And my project is complete!

Project II :

Now, let’s move on to the second project :
Step 1:
On a square canvas measuring 4″×4″, I stamped the sentiment from the Family stamp set in the middle.
Step 2:
I then lightly drew a circle around it with the help of a lid. I spread the Glass Bead Gel by Little birdie around the circle with the help of a spatula.
Step 3:
After drying it looks like this :
Step 4:
The next step involves sponging on top of the gel with Little Birdie Chalk paints in Frozen Ice & Sailing Sky.
I also mixed those two to get a darker grey.
Step 5:
After drying, I spread Little Birdie Metallic Wax in Copper Blaze.
I also outlined the circle with the chalk paints. And used pearl drops around the circle to further enhance the look.
And its complete!

Project III :

Now, lets begin the 3rd tutorial :
You can use this versatile metallic wax in cardmaking too!!!
Step 1:
Taking a 4 × 4 inch Bright White cardstock , I used various distress inks and smooshed them using water.
Step 2:
After I was satisfied with the result, I stamped the Flora Wishes stamp by Little Birdie on the panel and heat embossed it with Little Birdie Clear Embossing powder.
Step 3:
I then spread the Metallic Wax Copper Blaze on top of it with my finger. After that I took a tissue and wiped the excess off!
Step 4:
On a base of Classic White cardstock measuring 5.5″ × 11″ , scored at 5.5″, I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set repeatedly with festive berries distress ink.
I adhered the square panel in the middle. Also, I spread the Metallic Wax Copper Blaze all over the sides. And stuck red shiny tape on two sides.
*To make it transfer proof, I applied a thin layer of Little Birdie Matte Varnish*
And my card is complete.
Hope you liked my projects.

Have a great day ahead!

Peas Forgive Me

Hello Crafties!

I am really loving the Magic Picture Changer dieset by Lawn Fawn so much so that I use it to make every other card with it.😆

You can see a short video of the card below :

The Be Hap-Pea stamp set by Lawn fawn is another stamp set I can’t get enough of.

I made this card as all the earlier Magic Picture changer cards.

You can find them here , here & here .

For this card, I added an extra diecut circle and did some cloud stenciling with Tumbled glass distress oxide.

I also used the border-dies by Lawn Fawn on the base.

I also used the other small stamp images from the above stamp set on the base.

This cute stamp set makes a sorry card look cute too!

Who wouldn’t forgive after receiving it? 😉

Do let me know your thoughts in the comments.

Have a great day ahead!
