MFT - Rain or Shine Tri-Fold Card

Hello everyone! There's inspiration for cards everywhere and I saw this cool card over on instagram and had to try it out for myself. Today, I'm using the My Favorite Things Rain or Shine stamp set and it was absolutely perfect for it.

I really love it when a stamp set has large images and lots of sentiments and for this type of card, it was perfect. Specifically, I wanted to use the girl holding umbrella and to create three scenes with three different weather scenarios: rainy, cloudiness, and sunshine.

Using a larger piece of cardstock, I trimmed it down to 12.75 x 5.5. I went ahead and folded this into three. I used a stamp positioner to stamp the image of the girl on the front and on the second panel. You could use the coordinating dies or use a scan n cut machine to help cut out this image. The image will only be adhered to the back panel of the card. The die cut negative space will be left there for the image in the back.

For the first scene, I used distress inks to create streaks of colors. Once I was happy with it, I used a water brush to create "rain". Of course, you can also use the MFT Raindrops stencil to do this.


The second scene is for a cloudy background, I stamped the clouds from the set and used some gray and blue gray tones to depict cloudiness.


The last scene, of course, had to be sunny so I used the stamp and some of the chicks. The blue skies make everything look very sunny and happy.



I fussy cut out three images of the girl and using the Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive, glued them together. This will be adhered to the back panel (sunny scene). When the card is closed, you'll see the first girl in the rainy scene. Opening the first panel will reveal the cloudy scene and when you get to the last scene, the rain and clouds have disappeared, and it's sunny!

This type of card is such a good idea for when you can't decide what scene you'd like. This set has lots of sentiments and was perfect.

I hope you enjoyed the card and I'll see you next week!

Lawn Fawn- Rub-A-Dub-Dub!

Hello Crafty Friends! Angelica here with a new card... actually, I meant cards, because seriously!!?? How does someone make just one card using this must-have Lawn Fawn Stamp Set Rub-A-Dub-Dub??


I made 3 cards in a row with same design- girl, boy, and neutral. The first thing I did was arrange all the little stamps from the set in my Original MISTI . I stamped with matching inks for the pink and blue cardstocks, and used Copic Markers to color the neutral card background. Next I stamped one of the darling ducklings and bathtub scene, and colored them. I used glue and glitter on the bubbles and soap dish for a soapy look. After cutting out the characters with the coordinating Lawn Cuts, I adhered the layers together with foam squares. For the sentiment, I used Lawn Fawn's Fancy Folded Banner Lawn Cut, and heat set the words with Hero Arts white embossing powder. I trimmed the panels down, and attached them to a top-folding A2 size card.



Here's a close up of the bubbles:


These cards turned out so adorable, and I can't wait to give them to expecting moms!

Waffle Flower Crafts - Little Bakers Recipe Makers!



Kimberly Wiener here.  At least a few times a year I am asked to make cookies.  I have several cookie and treat cookbooks where there may be just one or two of the recipes that I truly love in each one.  I bookmark the pages for ease in finding them the next time.  A better idea is to go ahead and take the recipes and write them down on a recipe card and put them in my recipe box so that I no longer have to search endlessly going through each and every book.  This is a perfect craft to work on with you own "Little Baker." 

What better way to decorate the recipe cards than some sweet images from the Waffle Flower Crafts: Little Bakers!  




These images sure were perfect for Oatmeal Scotchies!  I stamped all of the Waffle Flower Crafts: Little Bakers Stamp Set images with Versafine Black Onyx ink and fussy cut them out. I decided on a simple color selection of Red, Yellow, Robin's Egg Blue and light and dark browns to match the red and white dots that are on my recipe cards as well as to make the cookies, well, look like cookies. I water colored with Koi water brush markers and affixed the sweet images with Scrapbook Adhesive squares.




And here is what the cute recipe cards look like after I have added one of our favorite cookie recipes : Oatmeal Scotchies.  This is actually written on a single recipe card and I am showing the front and the back as separate cards so that you can see the different decorated images in each side at once.  

 (It just so happens that my dinnerware and kitchen theme is red with white polka dots.) 


This was such a FUN project!

Two Tone Hooray Scene Card

Hello Friends Waleska from craftinglove here, I love the Waffle Flower Hooray Stamp Set, the images are very unique and cute. Sometimes when I need some inspiration to create my cards I look for the image designers, and for this card I was very inspired by Helen Dardik the creator of this beautiful images. You can check her beautiful artwork on her instagram account.


CARD DETAILS:

I started laying out my images and making masks for them, I masked the hill with post it sheets and stamped all my images with Blueprint Sketch Oxide ink, I let them dry and masked all the images. I sponge the background with Worn Lipstick Oxide ink and added some water splashes. I let that dry a little and add some splashes with the blueprint sketch and worn lipstick mixed with water, I also added gold watercolor splashes for a little sparkle here and there.


I wanted a two tone card, so to make the card base match perfectly, I sponge the edges of a card base with blueprint sketch oxide ink and added the fun sentiment with the same color.

Here is a closer look of the gold splashes and the masked images, if you check out Helen Dardik artwork you will see that sometimes she leaves her images white and she uses lots of blue for them.


I hope you like my card today and can be inspired to sometimes think outside of the box on your card designs and look for inspiration everywhere.
