Christmas Fairy & Star | Interactive Card

Happy Thursday! I have a brand new video and project to share with you today! Once again I have used Whimsy Stamps Kinetic dies to create an interactive component to my card.  When I started to think about how I wanted this card to look, I pictured this sweet image; Snowflake Wishes flying through the clouds. 

In the video, I will share the coloration of this image as well as share how I put the components together to create a slider for the image to move back and forth.  It may seem complicated but it really isn’t!  The cloud die was the perfect tool to create some panels to hide the slide components.  I sponged the diecuts lightly with some distress inks.

The background was created with Distress inks that were sponged onto the cardstock and then furthure distressed by spritzting the surface with some water using the Distress sprayer.  Adding the touch of shiny gold by using metallic foil paper really competed the card.  The star was a last minute addition.  The card needed something up in the sky so that it didn’t look so empty.

Little touches like adding white highlights to the image and adding glitter drops to small areas really elevates the final look of the project.

Christmas Series 2018 _ Day #9 Little Secret Santa

Happy Wedensday!  I am bakc to share the ninth video in my 2018 Christmas Series!  This one took a while to create and then to edit the video but I am so happy with the way this turned out.  Originally, I was inspired by this project that I created last year for my December Daily album. It is still one of my very favorite projects! When I saw these new images from MFT Stamps, I knew that I had to create this scene for my album this year! Once again, this project is a mix of old and new products from different companies that somehow all come together to look like a perfect match-up!

I had planned on creating a double-paned window so that we could peek in and see both the children and Santa hiding behind the tree.  I then had the idea to add Whimsy Stamps new Kinetic Dies so that I could have a hidden slider incorported into the page for a super cute surprise!  I think this is such an awesome way to add an interactive component to an album page or a card!

In the video, I will take you through the steps of making both pagers and include tips and tricks to adding the slider component to the page. Once you see how it is done, you will realize that it is actually pretty easy! I don’t include all the coloration in the video….it would have been way too long!  I do, however show how to color up the tree and all the copic markers that I used for the rest of the images are listed below!  Just check any of my coloration videos to see my coloring technique!

Christmas Polar Bear & Seal

Happy Tuesday!  I wanted to share this Christmas card that I made using some new and some older Whimsy Stamps products.  I love combining the new and the old together!

The focal image is the new Polar Bear and Seal Rubber Stamp which I stamped onto Neenah Solar White paper and colored up using Copic Markers.  You can find the exact marker numbers I used listed below.  I added some sparkle by using some Nuvo Glitter Drops in White Blizzard.  It also adds a little bit of dimension at the same time.

To create the fun stiped border, I first stamped some Neenah cardstock with the  Brushed Stripes Background Rubber Stamp and red ink.  I then die cut it using the Shaker Maker Rectangular Die Set.  I love that it gives a candy cane effect. Finally, I die cut some glitter cardstock using the Elegant Snowflake Die Set.  This is one of my go-to sets when I want to add some embellishments to my Christmas cards.

Whimsy New Kinetic Dies – Christmas Woods Angel

Happy Thursday! Today I have a new card to share with you and it features some amazing kinetic dies that Whimsy Stamps just released today! These are going to be a real game changer for my cards.  I love creating interactive cards and the new kinetic dies are so simple to use, so I know that I will be using them a lot!

What is really special about these dies is that you can create movement BUT the components stay hidden! Check out this little demonstration:

I wanted to create a very magical scene and that is why I chose to die cut all the elements out of either white cardstock or silver glitter paper.  The background was very easily created…..I printed out one of the digital papers from Whimsy (linked below) and cut it to size. The angel/fairy was colored in soft colors to match the colors in the paper (copic markers listed below).  I didn’t film a how-to video because one of the Whimsy designers will be creating some but I plan to create a video a little later on this month!

Peace on Earth | Whimsy Stamps

Hi Everyone! I was all set to publish a post using one of the new November Whimsy Release and just saw that it is ALREADY SOLD OUT!  I am actually not that surprised, really, because it is such a sweet image. Not to worry, I know that Denise will be restocking shortly and will keep an eye out for it so I can share my card!

In the meantime, I haven’t shared this card with you.  I used some lovely dies from the October release to create this card. I have to admit, I really love the simplicity and ease of using die cuts only on a card!

The background was created by sponging Bristol Smooth cardstock with various distress inks (listed below) and then to furthur the distressed look, I sprayed the surface with water and dabbed at the excess with a paper towel. I think it looks like a snowy, night sky.

I used gold embossing powder to add the sentiment to the card and strategically placed a star onto the sky.

Distress Inks Used:

Distress Oxide Cracked Pistachio

Distress Blue Print Sketch

Distress Faded Jeans

Distress Black Soot

Evergren Trees Die Set

Embossing Powder

That is is for me today. Have a great day!

Christmas Series 2018 | Day #8 Little Reveal Wheel

Happy Tuesday! Hope your week is off to a great start!! Have you started thinking about decorating and shopping for Christmas?  I start pretty early but I think that is because I am a blogger and I have to get my content ready way before the season starts!  Today’s card set and video tutorial took a long while to film and edit!  I am absolutely crazy about the interactive effect that the Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel adds to a card.  I think that everyone will be super happy to get one of these in the mail this holiday series!

I CANNOT get enough of these cute penguins! They certainly look like they are very hard working….well maybe that little guy in the box is playing more than working, but he is a cutie!

Using the same set but creating a different look. I added less images and switched up the backgroud inks colors and the appperature shape.

Did you see THIS POST?  I used this set to create a totally different take on Santa, his sled and the reindeer.  I mentioned in my video tutorial that I was planning on making one featuring an iconic night sleigh scene… it is! I am super happy with how it turned out!

Finally, I used other images from the Santa Sleigh set to create this card.  I thought Santa might want a change and so I gave him a lovely blue suit. Hope he likes it!!!
