Top Dog Dies – Die Cut Card

Hello everyone!!!  I’m here with Top Dog Dies!!  I’m here showcasing one of their new dies that was released 3 weeks ago!!

Lets jump right in!

Today I’m working with the Top Dog Dies Onesie Dress Die Set!! It’s a super doper cute die set and the possibility are endless!!

Top Dog Dies Onesie Dress Die Set

Take a look at my card that I created with this die:

Baby Onesie Dress

This card is all about die cutting and no stamping. I just die cut all of the pieces then I needed.

I die cut the card base using Top Dog Dies Onesie and retired Stampin Up! Peach Parfait cardstock.

Then I cut the dress pieces from Top Dog Dies Onesie Dress Die Set and retired Stampin’ Up! Just Add Cake DSP and Micheal’s Heavyweight White Cardstock.

Then I used a Plus Glue Tape Runner to adhered all of the pieces to the card base.  Super easy if you needed to create tons of these cards.

Take a look at the sketch:

YNSSketch21

Take a look at the color combo:

YNScolor-21

You know me, I went with the sketch!!  I never seem to have the colors need for this.  I hope I can change for the next challenge, LOL!

Take a look at my card:

Let's Celebrate (YNS)

Yes, another shaker card.  I’m addicted to these cards.  Or is it the sequin that I love seeing move about in the card. LOL, LOL, LOL!!

YNS Supplies: Happy 6th Birthday Stamp Set, Balloon Buddies Die Set

Other Supplies: Retired Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Wonder DSP, My Favorite Things Hybrid Black Ink, Foam Tape, Lucy Abrams Peachy Sequin, We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool, Recollections White Heavyweight Cardstock, Recollections Black Heavyweight Cardstock

Creating this card was a bit easy.

All I did was cut my DSP to make the sketch.  I adhered the yellow panel to the card base with a tape runner.

I die cut a circle in the front card panel.  That is where my shaker packet will go.

I created my shaker pocket using my Fuse Tool.  If you want to know who to do that you can check out my tutorial here.

I attached the shaker pocket to the card panel with the tape runner.  I added foam tape the back of that card panel and attached the entire piece to the card base.

I cut two strips of DSP to different sizes.  I stamped the sentiment on the bigger piece and attached both pieces with the tape runner.

I die cut the two balloons out of the same DSP and attached them to the front of the shaker window.  I die cut the balloon strings out of black card stock and attached them to the balloons.

I told you it was easy.  Now its your turn!!

So are you ready for the new challenge?

You have until September 3rd at midnight EST to play along and submit your project on the YNS Blog post.  One random participant will win a $15 gift certificate to the Your Next Stamp Store.  If YNS stamps or dies are the focal point then the winner receives and additional $5 gift certificate fro a total of $20.  The winner will be announced on the YNS Blog the Sunday after the challenge closes.

My Overhead Table Top Tripod

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with a tutorial on how I created my overhead table top tripod for my iPhone!!

I posted this picture:

Overhead Tripod

on Instagram the other day and everyone was totally amazed by it.  So I decided to create a little tutorial on how I made it.

Now I have to say, I was not the creator of this idea.  Sarah Shotts did a Periscope showing us how to put this overhead table top camera mount together.  She got the idea from Katie.

So props to these young ladies for sharing this idea with all of us!!!

Now let get to work!!

First you will need to go to either Home Depot, Lowes or any hardwood store that sells PVC pipes.

I went to Home Depot with my dad to buy all of the materials.

My dad and I take one

We picked up:

1 10 foot piece of 1/2 inch PVC pipe

2 1/2 inch PVC Caps

3 1/2 inch PVC 90 degree Elbows (slips, on threading)

2 1/2 inch PVC Tees (slips, no threading)

1 1/4 20 x 12 bolts

Drill

15/64 Drill Bit

Now I had to cut that 10 foot pvc pipe. Home Depot lets you cut the pipe yourself.

Cutting with a saw

Here are the sizes that I cut my pipes. They are based on the size of my desk:

2 11 inch pieces

2 10 inch pieces

1 13 inch piece

1 3 inch piece

PVC pipes pieces

After those cuts I was left with long piece, so I cut other pieces. I cut some longer pieces:

1 18inch piece

1 23 inch piece

I will use these interchangeable, depending on how high or low I want my camera to sit.

Ok, now lets put the tripod together:

Overhead Tripod 1

Putting this together is super doper easy. The pieces just slid right into the elbows and the tees with ease.  You can take it apart and travel with it as well.

Now on to assembling the actual camera mount:

I took a sharpie marker and placed a dot on the inside of the second tee.

Dot in the pipe

Then I took the drill and drilled a hole where you see that red dot.

PVC pipe with screw

Then I screwed the screw into that drilled hole.

Small camera mount

I bought this mini tripod from Amazon for my iphone last year but it to small so I just unscrewed the part that holes the camera.

Mounted on the PVC

I screwed that camera mount on to the screw and here you have it!!

Super doper easy and portable!!  That is the best part!!

Overhead Tripod

What do you think? Will you build one?  I would love to hear from you.

CASology 160 – Number

Hello everyone!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Cue Card for you!!!

This week’s cue card is:

Week 160 - Number

Take a look at my card:

Numbers Birthday (CAS)

Can you believe I still have pieces of watercolor paper that I created weeks ago?  I do.  I love it.  It makes my card making process so much easier!!

Here is how I created this card:

I used the Penny Black By The Number Die and die cut the numbers out of per-created watercolor paper, seen below.

Watercolor pieces

I adhered the die cut numbers to my black card base with Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I used Your Next Stamp Birthday Stamp Set to stamp my sentiment on vellum.  While the sentiment was still wet, I added Stampin’ Up! Clear Embossing Powder. I heat set it and it gave the sentiment a glossy look.

I flagged the vellum and adhered it to the numbers with Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I used the We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper to rounded the top corners.

Easy Peasy!!

Now its your turn!! I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
