Cool Sizzix Center Step Card!

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014

I received this totally cool Sizzix Center Step Card die and couldn’t wait to try it out. Technically, the name of the die is Card, Center Step so if you want to look it up by name, that is the appropriate one to use.( I will have the number for it in the product list below.)

This die is VERY COOL! Everything you need to assemble the card is on one Bigz XL die except the embellishments to dress it up. You will need extended cutting mats. It is super easy to put together and took no time at all to complete this card once I decided what I wanted to embellish it with.

Sizzix-Bigz-XL-Card-Center-Step

 

I chose the Bo Bunny Enchanted Garden Collection to use on the card base which was just out of cream card stock. I love the color pallet of the Enchanted Garden and the embellishments!  The banner was cut with Sizzix Triplits 8pk Banners die set and the sentiment from Penny Black Special Wishes stamp set, which I must not have inked good enough in one spot, but oh well. I forgot to stamp the sentiment before adhering the label, so it was a done deal.

Really, all you do is cut the pieces and adhere in place! The score lines are already done for you when you cut the card base, so all you have to do is follow the score lines to fold. So easy and so cute! It folds up very nicely to fit into an A2 Envelope.

Stamping Technique With Faber-Castell Gelatos

Monday, June 23rd, 2014

Today I made another folded card using a stamping technique with Faber-Castell Gelatos. This was a fun technique to try, but I do have to admit that it took me some practice and experimenting to get results that I liked. I still want to try a few other techniques, hopefully i will get better with practice!

Here is a list of supplies that I used that can be found at the Cut at Home website.

Faber-Castell Gelatos Designer Colors, Tropical – SKU:770162
Spellbinders Standard Circles, large – SKU:S4-114
Spellbinders Lables One – SKU:S4-161
Spellbinders Gold Labels One – SKU:S4-423
Graphic 45 Botanical Tea Stamps 1 – SKU: IC0296
Graphic 45 Botanical Tea Stamps 2 – SKU:IC0297
BoBunny Primrose 12 x 12 Collection Pack – SKU:16016308

photo 1 (5)

Other items from my stash used were Glimmer Mist – pearl, Adhesive Lace and pearls.

I started with a simple fold card, the size of the card stock that I started with was 8.5 x 5.5, I scored the card stock at 4.25, then I scored the 4.25 section in the center. After the scoring was completed I folded the card, the 4.25 score line should be a valley fold and the other fold should be a mountain fold. This is the card base.

I also cut two pieces of patterned paper to add some interest to the card, I cut those so there was 1/4 inch border all around them.

Next is was time to create the center panel with the gelatos.

After I had finished stamping and coloring in my stamped image I misted the image with Pearl Glimmer mist to give it a nice shimmery look. When my image was finished I cut it out using the Spellbinder circle die set. Then I cut the labels and used the gold label pieces to add dimension and pattern to the labels. I layered the labels and centered the circle in side of the labels.

Next I ran the lace across the bottom of the card added the pearls and stamped the sentiment for the inside of the card.

Here is a look at the finished card:

And here is how the card looks opened:

And finally a look at the gelato stamped and colored area:

This was a fun project and it was very relaxing working with the gelatos, but as I found out practice makes perfect and don’t be afraid to play around with the gelatos to see what kind of interesting effects you can come up with! You can also go to the Cut@Home YouTube channel at the link below to see more techniques using Faber-Castell Gelatos!

Fancy Fold Card Using Bo Bunny Primrose Collection

Monday, June 16th, 2014

Today I wanted to try a new Fancy Fold card using BoBunny Primrose Collection and Spellbinders Die D-Lites Antique Corner die. Before we get started here is a list of the supplies that I used that are available on the Cut at Home website.

Spellbinders Die D-Lites, Antique Corner – SKU: S2-072
BoBunny Primrose 12 x 12 Collection Pack – SKU: 16016308
Sizzix Big Shot – SKU: 657900
Silhouette America Silhouette Cameo – SKU: SILHOUETTE-CAMEO-3T

Other supplies used: BoBunny Primrose Gems, White Card Stock, Washi tape and the Double Diamond Fold Card Template by Castlepark Designs, the template can be found at http://castleparkdesigns.wordpress.com

My video this week walks you through how to make a fancy folded card using a double diamond fold card template, it really looks more complicated that it is.

For this card I used a piece of white card stock cut to 12″ x 7″, using a scoring board you can either mark 1 1/2 inch or as I did in the video just put a little mark there with the scoring board, next score at three inches and again at 4.5 inches. You will do the same on the other side of the card. Next you will score from the 1.5 inch mark to the 4.5 inch score line from top to bottom on a diagonal, you will do this again from the 4/5 inch to the 1.5 inch mark, this will create a diamond pattern, repeat on the other side. Finally when you look at the template you will see two lines that are in yellow, these pieces get cut off, I scored the line first so I knew where to cut it. Also on the template the different colors represent which way the paper gets folded, the blue lines are valley folds and the green lines are mountain folds.

Once you get all of the scoring and folding done you can cut the patterned paper pieces. I wanted to find an easy way to create the pieces so I decided to make a template for the pieces on my Silhouette. They came out very well and I can send anyone that is interested the cut files. If you do not have a silhouette you can cut the patterned paper a little smaller than the folded area to create a boarder.

Once I had all the pieces cut I adhered them to the card base, next I cut two of the Antique corners using my Sizzix Big Shot and placed them on the front of the card, then I cut an image on the Silhouette for the inside of the card, I used the print and cut feature for this image. Finally I added some Washi tape, a sticker boarder from the BoBunny 12″ x 12″ collection, and added the bling which is also from the BoBunny Primrose collection. Another helpful hint is I added four pieces of patterned paper to the back of the white card stock so when the card was folded it would show on the front instead of the white card stock, this gave the card a finished look.

Here is my finished card:

I really like how this card turned out, the next time I make it I think I am going to add a magnetic closure or something, maybe a twine tie to keep it closed, but it was a fun project! Here is another view with the card open.

I hope you like my project this week, please let me know if you would like the Silhouette files. Till next week, Thanks and Happy Scrappin!

“It’s A Boy!” Card Using Bo Bunny Our Lil’ Monster Collection

Wednesday, June 4th, 2014

 

our lil monster

 

You might think that my “It’s A Boy!” card using Bo Bunny Our Lil’ Monster Collection is not the most traditional for a baby card, and it’s not, but it’s super cute! I am loving this collection so much for little boys! It’s bright, colorful, and it’s got the cutest little monsters! What else do you need?

Well, I have had a lot of people I know getting baby girls lately, so when I finally got the chance to make a baby boy card, I was thrilled to be able to do something boyish and bright. I just couldn’t bring myself to make a traditional baby blue card-nope, not happinin’! I also pulled out my Scor-Pal and Scor-Envi to make a matching envelope. So fun!

Thanks & Happy Scrappin’!

Penny Slider Card Using Spellbinders Antique Corner Die

Monday, May 19th, 2014

Hi today I made a penny slider card with Spellbinders Antique Corner die and foil. This is such a fun project to do, and a lot easier than you would think. Before I get started here is a list of the supplies used that can be found on the Cut at Home website.

Spellbinders Die D-Lites, Antique Corner – SKU:S2-072
Spellbinders A Gilded Life Foil Pack – SKU:GLF-001
BoBunny Primrose 12″ x 12″ Collection Pack – SKU:16016308
Silhouette America Silhouette Cameo – SKU: SILHOUETTE-CAMEO-

Items from my stash: Washi tape, blue, yellow and brown card stock, Anna Griffin Embossing folder, Pop dots, glue dots, gems, small buttons, glue gun and Rock Candy Distress Stickles.

I made a penny slider for the first time this week for my Granddaughter’s first birthday, it was a Cookie Monster card and I made the slider a cookie so it looked like it was going into Cookie monster’s mouth, well I had so much fun making that card and it was such a hit at her party that I decided to feature this in my blog post this week.

For this card I decided that I wanted to make a square card, I also had the idea of making the slider a butterfly circling a flower. I cut my card base 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, then I cut my patterned paper 5 1/4″ x 5 1/4″, I bordered that with a thin strip of metallic washi tape. Next I cut the four corners using the Spellbinders antique corner die and the foil. This is the first time that I had worked with the foil, it was easy to cut, I even cut it on my Silhouette Cameo. For the penny slider pattern I edited a design that is available for purchase in the Silhouette on line store. There are at least 3 or 4 penny slider patterns available for purchase. If you do not have a Silhouette you can make your own pattern, the only thing that you have to make sure of it not to make the hole too big for the slider so that the pennies will stay in place. In the video below I will show you how to put it together.

In the video I originally used pop dots for the penny assembly, I ended up changing that and using very small buttons and a hot glue gun, you can really use anything that is round as long as it is sturdy and will allow the slider to move along the channel.

After I got the slider assembly put together I added the finishing touches, I cut out the flower on the silhouette, the center of the flower is a rolled piece, it is from a sunflower pattern. The butterfly was also cut on the silhouette, then I adhered the butterfly to the top penny and adhered the flower to the center of the card, finally I added a little bling and the distress stickles to the flower.

Here is a picture of the finished product:

And a close up of the butterfly and flower:

I hope that you enjoyed my post today, if you have any questions or need additional instructions please let me know! Like I said before, these cards are so fun to make I hope you give it a try!

Till next week Thanks and Happy Scrappin!

Bo Bunny Our Lil Monster Layout!

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

I have been dying to do a Bo Bunny Our Lil Monster layout ever since I first saw the collection at CHA in January! I knew it would be perfect for scrapping the MANY photos I’ve taken of my little grandson (who can be the most adorable little monster at times).

If you have young boys around then you’ll love using this collection to capture the energy and fun of your little boy. The color palette is full of bright greens and yellows with silly monster designs and wild geometrics. and there are a ton of coordinating embellishments that enable you to quickly create layouts or cards for that special little guy in your life from chipboard to buttons.  There is even a darling mini album that you can add your photos to as it is or add embellishments as you like, but either way it is an easy album to put together.

Today, I just want to show you the double page layout I did. I like to keep my layouts cleaner and let my photos stand out. The products are listed separately below. Sorry that my lighting wasn’t a bit better!
