Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. I have a card to share using the Nested Tags, Warm Winter Mug Dies, and the Holiday Treats Sentiment Stamps, along with some oldies to create a sweet Hugs In A Mug in time for Valentine’s Day. Below are the steps to create your own card.
Step 1 – Diecut Nested Tags 2 times using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a Bone Folder score at 11/16″ to one of the diecuts. Apply Kid’s Choice to the upper part of the score line and place the 2nd diecut on top. (You now have a Tag Card)
Step 2 – Optional – Place a stencil from Planner Stencil 2 on top of the card front and apply ink of your choice using a blender brush.
Step 3 – Diecut Warm Winter Mug in various colors of cardstock, diecut Gnomes (hearts) and Monster 2 (flowers). Assemble and adhere to card using Kid’s Choice Glue.
Step 4 – Stamp Holiday Treats using Versafine Onyx Black Ink on Soft Yellow Cardstock. Diecut the sentiment using the Fitted Fishtails.
This card can be used for several occasions by changing the colors and/or sentiment. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. I have a fun DIY Interactive Card to share with you using the Stitched Rounded Squares and a piece you will need to make. To decorate the card I used the Honey Bear Dies, Adventure Edges Dies, Monster 2 for the flower. Below is the steps to create your own card.
Step 1 – Diecut Stitched Rounded Square (the largest one) using Light Blue Cardstock for your background, White Cardstock for the clouds and Green Cardstock for the grass. Using a score tool (I’m using a Scor-Buddy) score the Blue Diecut on the right side 1/2″ and another at 1/2″. For the White and Green Diecut score on the left at 1/2″ and again at 1/2″. Fold on the score lines and match the folds to my card example.
Step 2 – Diecut Adventure Edges (clouds) using the White Diecut from Step 1. Use 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive and adhere the left side only to the Blue Diecut from Step 1. Diecut Adventure Edges (grass) using the Green Diecut from Step 1. Use 3mm Clear Doube Sided Adhesive and adhere the left side only to the Blue Diecut from Step 1.
Step 3 – Create a mechanism that will appear as if it is flying. You can skip this step if you want. Follow the below diagram and adhere to the inside of the grass (bring the open end of the grass to the left) and align it the crease. I will add a photo or video in a few days so be sure to come back. Once the mechanism is dry attach the flap on the right side. You can also attached the flap on the right side for the clouds using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape. (I forgot to take the photos as I was assembling. I will have a tutorial coming shortly).
Step 4 – Diecut Honey Bear in various colors of cardstock. Assemble and adhere on top of the grass using Kid’s Choice Glue.
Step 5 – Diecut the green diecut again with the Adventure Edges (grass). Before adhering to the card Stamp any sentiment of your choice. I used the Bee Sentiments from an older release so this will apply to only people who have it in their stash. But any sentiment will do. Adhere to card front but leave about a 1/4″ without glue so you will be able to adhere the flowers.
Step 6 – Diecut Monster 2 (flowers) in various colors of cardstock. Assemble and adhere to card using Kid’s Choice Glue.
Step 7 – Diecut Honey Bear (bumblebee dies). Assemble and adhere 2 to the card front and the 3rd one to the inside flip mechcanism.
As I mentioned above I will come back and add some pictures to add the mechanism. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. Yes you are seeing Halloween items in the stores. No it’s not your imagination. However the Monster Release came just in time for Halloween. I used the Monster 2, Halloween Accessories along with the Pull Tab dies to create my Interactive Sweet ‘n Scary Card. Below you will find the steps to create your own card.
Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 7″ x 6″, score at 3 1/2″ and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (Mini Slimline)
Step 2 – Diecut Slimline Adventure Edges (clouds) using White Cardstock to use as a stencil. Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 3 1/2″ x 6″. Place the diecut on the cardstock and using a Blending Brush apply ink of your choice. Repeat this step until you reach the bottom of the cardstock. I used Distress Oxide Villainous Potion.
Step 3 – Diecut Pull Tab using White Cardstock except for the rectangular hole piece, you will need to diecut that piece using the panel created in Step 2. Follow the score lines and assemble the pieces. Once everything is assembled adhere the panel to the card front using 3mm Double Sided Adhesive Tape.
Step 4 – Diecut Monster 2 using White Soft Finish Cardstock (ink the cardstock using orange ink. I used Distress Oxide Spiced Marmalade – except for teeth and eyes). For shading I used Distress Oxide Ripe Persimmon and Candied Apple for the warts. Assemble and adhere to the 2 tabs sticking out using Kid’s Choice Glue.
Step 5 – Diecut Party Accessories using coloured Cardstock (purple for hat, yellow for buckle, black for strip and bats, brown for broom stick). Assemble and adhere to card using Kid’s Choice Glue.
Step 6 – Diecut Slimlime Adventure Edges (grass) using Green Cardstock. Stamp Monster Hugs sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink. Adhere to card using Foam Tape.
