Technique Tuesday April 2018 Release Countdown Day 2

Hello everyone!!! Today I’m showcasing Technique Tuesday April 2018 Release!! Were you pleased with yesterday’s projects? Well let’s see what today holds.

Let’s take a look:

Grandma blessingsI love this Grandma Blessings stamp set because the sentiments are so true.  Grandma’s are truly a blessing and we don’t know how lucky we are to have them until they are gone.

I lost my grandmother last month so this set really hit home for me.  My grandmother spoiled us.  She was tough but she really loved us and made us laugh.

Since my grandmother isn’t here anymore, I decided to create a “postcard” card to send to my grandmother in heaven.  I will place it in her bible when no one is looking.

Here’s how this card was created:

Use Cricut Design Studio to create the card base.

Placed a piece of kraft board on a standard mat and run it through the Cricut Maker.

The Cricut Maker scores (with the scoring stylus) and draws the lines (with the midnight pen) on the card front.

Once the Cricut Maker finishes, peel the card front off of the mat.

Fold on the scored line.

Using the Mini MISTI, stamp a sentiment on the left side of the card using Versafine Black Onyx Ink.

Let that dry a bit.

Then stamp the flower stamp underneath the sentiment using ColorBox Crafter’s Berry Ink.

Super simple and easy card!

There’s more:

The Cricut Maker can cut out an envelope as well.

A simple butterfly stamp in the bottom right corner keeps the entire set CAS!!

Nicely done.

Motion Crafts Spring Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone and welcome to Motion Crafts Spring Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing the all of the new Stamps and Dies. If you arrived here from the talented Vicki Papaioannou blog, then you are on the right track. If you arrived here on your own, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Motion Craft Blog so that you don’t miss a thing!

Take a look at my motion card:

(please excuse the camera image in the photo, the reflection was hard to a get rid of)

Super cute card with that waving mouse!!

Here’s how I created this card:

Create the card base out of patterned paper.  I used some retired Gossamer Blue paper.

To create the give tag holder, use We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board and cut a piece of Gossamer Blue coordinating paper to 5-5/8 and follow the direction on how to create the envelope.

Use the rectangular die that comes with the Motion Craft Pull Slider die set to create the window.

Cut the animation grid to size to cover the open window.

Adhere it using Motion Craft craft tape. Its small enough to fit in small spaces and not show.

Decide which where the bottom of the tag holder will be. Place a piece of foam tape at the base of the holder to create a stop for the tag.

Cut the top small flaps off of the envelope. Close the back of the envelope using the same craft tape.

Use a circle punch to create a notch at the top of the holder so that the you can pull the tag out of the holder with ease.

To create the actual tag, die cut the Pull Slider die and use the long window negative as the tag.

With the help of the Mini MISTI, stamp the bear from the Sunshine stamp set using crisp black ink. If the stamp isn’t as vibrant, stamp again.

Punch a hole in the top of the tag and string a piece of ribbon for an easy pull tab.

Decorate the rest of the card using Gossamer Blue embellishments.

Nice and easy.

Altenew March 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

If you arrived here on your own, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Card Blog so that you don’t miss a thing!

Take a look at my Framed Scrapbook:

Altenew Sincere Greetings

I’m always looking for ways to stretch my scrapbooking ideas and I love this one. I am totally tickled by this scrapbook frame.  Amber from Damasklove posted some great buys at Joann’s the other day on Instagram and it gave me some ideas. So I went to Joann’s, picked up this wooden panel and decided to create a scrapbook frame.

I ordered a pair of Crocs for the first time and thought it would be fun to playfully document them.  I’m going to wear these at work.

Here’s how I created this Scrapbook Frame:

Use Altenew Dotted Washi Tape to cover the bottom of the wood panel.

Then stamp hello from the Sincere Greeting stamp set around the border of the frame using Stazon black ink.

http://shrsl.com/u5d2

Print the pictures using Fujifilm Instax SP-3 and Fujifilm Instax Square Film.

Add the photos to the left side of the frame using foam tape.

Add the title using Altenew Our Family chipboard stickers.

Our Family Chipboard

Type or write the journaling and adhere it under the title.

Decorate the photos and frame with embellishments from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection and Our Family Scrapbook Collection.

Reflection Scrapbook Kit

So different, yet so effective. I love it!
