Vilda Stamps - Camera Tag

Hello, my friends!

I'm back to share my second project for Vilda Stamps!

This is completely different from the previous project I shared.
That one was all girly with flowers.
This one is very masculine, and even a little bit grungy!
It features the V798 Camer Kit Stamp Set.
This is a large set, and so much fun to play with!

Here's what I made:


I started with a chipboard tag.
I stamped the sentiment in the center with black ink.
I also stamped the filmstrip in random areas, using brown ink.
Then I inked around the outside of the tag,
and added the ribbon to the top.


Isn't that sentiment wonderful?


I stamped the large camera, the film reel, and the film cartridge, with black ink.
I coloured them in with my Spectrum Noir Markers,
and then fussy cut them out. 
They were a little bit brighter than I wanted, and had white edges.
So I inked over all of the images with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.
Then I adhered them all in place using foam tape.


This really is a fabulous stamp set!
The creative possibilities are endless! 


Other Materials Used:
Chipboard;
Tim Holtz Tag Die;
Spectrum Noir Markers;
Memento Inks - Tuxedo Black, Rich Cocoa;
Distress Ink - Walnut Stain;
Unknown Ribbon.

Vilda Stamps - Girl With Bag

Hello, my friends!

I'm back with my first of two projects for Vilda Stamps!

For this card I used the adorable V833 Stamp Set.
This set includes three stamps: Boy with Dog, Girl with Bag, and some little flowers.
I used the Girl with Bag.

Here's my card:


I stamped the image, and coloured it with my Spectrum Noir Markers.
I die-cut it, and then layered it with foam tape onto a pretty purple die-cut.
Then I used foam tape again to adhere the purple oval onto the floral background.


A card like this really needs some pretty flowers,
so I added some of those.
Finally, I added some Stickles to the little flowers in the image.
Here's a closer look:

Rinea - Snowman Card

Hello, my friends!

Today I have a new tutorial for Rinea.

I'm going to show you how I made this cute
Snowman Card,
using these fabulous foiled papers!

This is a good indication of what I see when I look out my window! 

I'm using the beautiful "Frosted" collection for this project.


Here's how I did it:


Materials Used in this Project:
Sizzix Let It Snow Die by Debi Potter;
White Cardstock;
Three Coordinating Rhinestones.


1. I began by cutting an A2 card base out of white cardstock.
2. I cut an A2 size piece of the Sapphire/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper, and adhered it to the card base.
3. Using the die, I cut the entire piece out of Silver/Silver Starstruck Foiled Paper (shown in photo), and another one out of the Turquoise/Turquoise Starstruck Foiled Paper (not shown).


4. I adhered the Silver piece in place on the card front. From the Turquoise cut, I took all of the bits that I wanted to use, and put them in place on the card front. It was like putting a puzzle together. I adhered the letters in place, and added the Turquoise snowflakes. 
5. Using the scrap of Blush/Blush Starstruck Foiled Paper, I die-cut just the hearts on the front of the snowmen. Then I adhered them in place on the card front. 
6. Finally, I added rhinestones to the center of the snowflakes.


These foiled papers are always perfect for a fun frosty card!


Thanks so much for stopping by today!
I'll be back soon with another fun project!

Masculine Birthday Card with Glitter Design!

Hello, my friends!

Today I have another combination DT post.
I've combined products from Southern Ridge Trading Company,
with products from ScraPerfect,
to create a special Birthday card.

These products really are an ideal combination.
This will be my final DT post for ScraPerfect,
as I've made the tough decision to step down.
However, I will continue to use their fabulous products.

Here's the card I made for today:



I'm afraid I don't have any process photos for you.
It's sometimes hard enough to get regular photos this time of year
but getting good photos of all this glitter was even more difficult. ;o)
This is a fun technique that I've been wanting to try for ages,
so I'll walk you through it.


I began by making an A2 tent-fold card from black cardstock.
I then cut a piece of sticker paper at 4" x 5 1/4".
I peeled back the protective layer from the sticker paper,
and adhered the stencil in place.
I thought this stencil was perfect for a masculine birthday card,
as it's all full of gears and numbers.


Once the stencil was securely in place,
I generously sprinkled it with the blue glitter.
Using my fingers, I burnished it all very well,
then gave it a really thorough brushing with the glitter brush.
Then I peeled off the stencil,
and generously sprinkled it with the silver glitter.
I repeated the burnishing and brushing,
and was left with a fabulous glittered design!
It's so fun and easy, and I think it's very effective!



Next, I took my chipboard "Happy Birthday"
and inked it up with embossing ink.
I sprinkled it with black embossing powder,
and heat set it.
Now the words are so dark and shiny!


To finish off the card,
I adhered the glittered piece onto the card base with foam tape.
Then I used my Best Glue Ever to add the words in place.
This glue does a great job of grabbing onto a glittered surface!
Finally, I used the Perfect Cleaning Cloth to clean up all the glitter.
It truly does an amazing job of picking up all the random glitter
that always manages to get everywhere!


I can't wait to try this technique with another stencil!
It's so much fun to do!

Vilda Stamps - Always Believe That Something Wonderful is About to Happen!

Hello, my friends!

I'm back to share my second project for Vilda Stamps!
This time I'm sharing a fun little tag.

This little sweetie is one of the stamps from the V686 Stamp Set!
Since she is hoping to turn the little frog into a Prince with a kiss,
I thought this great sentiment from V763 Stamp Set worked very well!




I recently purchased this fun tag die, 
and it was just perfect for this image!
I adhered the coloured image in place using foam tape, 
for some added dimension.


Here's a close-up look at the sentiment.
It's got a wonderful mixture of fonts...and just a touch of grunginess.
It will be a great stamp to use again in my art journal!




Other Materials Used:
Papers: K & Company - Watercolor Bouquet;
Die: Marianne Design Creatables;
Ink: Memento - Tuxedo Black;
Spectrum Noir Markers;
Ribbon: Celebrate It!

Vilda Stamps - Geranium Card

Hello, my friends!

 I'm back with my first Vilda Stamps project of the day!

I've used one of the beautiful floral stamps from the V861 Stamp Set!
It's a wonderful set that includes 7 great stamps!

This is the geranium stamp,
which includes the sweet little butterfly.
 
I stamped the image, and coloured it with Spectrum Noir markers.
I die-cut it in an oval, and matted it with a larger oval.
I then die-cut a pretty wreath from green cardstock.
I added one half of the wreath on the top of the ovals,
and the other on the bottom.


I then made a card base, using the same large oval die.
To make it stand up, I cut just a little bit of the oval off of the back.
I hope you can see it in the photo. 


To finish off the card, I punched three yellow butterflies.
Once they were adhered in place, I added some Stickles.
Finally, I brushed the flowers with my Spectrum Noir Sparkle marker.



Vilda Stamps Used:

Other Materails Used:
DCWV Textured Cardstock;

My Scrap Chick - Heart of Love Quick Card

Hello, my friends!

Welcome to a new DT post for My Scrap Chick!

Today I'm featuring the lovely:

Heart of Love Quick Card

Valentine's Day is fast approaching
but there's still lots of time to make this pretty card.
That's one of the wonderful joys of cut files...they're fast! 

Here's my card:


This is another simple layered card.
It can look completely different just by changing the papers.
I wanted some sparkle, so I used a white glitter paper 
as my top layer.


This photo shows the sparkle a bit better. 
To finish it off, I added a pretty red bow.


When your card is all finished
you're left with a great heart and "Love" cut-out to use on another project!
You can't beat that! :o)


Other Materials Used:
Papers: Recollections - Cardstock, DCWV - Glitter Cardstock;
Ribbon: Celebrate It.

ScraPerfect - February Calendar

Hello, my friends!

Today I'm back with a new project for ScraPerfect

It's my next Calendar page. 
Again, I'm using the Memory Dex format.
Thanks so much for your great response to my January card!

Here's February:


I began with a black cardstock memory dex card.
I added a piece of Valentine themed paper.
I then cut the "February" out using my Cricut Explore Air.
It's such an intricate design.
It was easy to glue in place,
using the Best Glue Ever with the No-Clog Writing Cap.
However, before adhering the month to the card,
I had to sparkle it up a bit. 
I did that by adding Best Glue Ever over several of the little hearts.
I then sprinkled various glitters over the glue.
The glue grabs the glitter very well.
I set it aside to dry, and then added the month.


Here's the back of the card. 
I added some more Valentine themed paper, 
as well as my February calendar.
Of course, I also had to add more sparkle to this side,
using the same process.


The No-Clog Writing Cap allows you to add small,
detailed amounts of glue, wherever you want!


Other Materials Used:
Papers: Recollections - Cardstock, Fancy Pants - Love Note;  
Glitters: Glitter Galore - Fire Engine Red, Diamond Dust;


ScraPerfect Products Used:
