Nuture Your Dream | Small Things |Shaker Card

I love learning new techniques and working with new products.  When Fun Stampers Journey introduced their Liquid Colors last year, I was intrigued by them and the more and more I use them, I just love them.

A few weeks ago I participated in a craft retreat. Here is one of the projects we made using Liquid Color.

Nuture Your Dreams

A piece of Summer Days (CS-0033) was embossing using the Corrugated Board Embossing Folder (EF-0017).  The Small Things Bundle (BD-0373) was used to  cut the Butterfly out of the embossed piece.  Then on a piece of Whip Cream (CS-004) card stock, one of the Butterfly images from the Small Things Bundle (BD-0373) was stamped in Black Licorice ink (IP-0041).  The image was colored in using a Blending Brush (TO-0097 and TO-0098) and Liquid Color.

Nuture Your Dreams2

The card was made into a shaker card, you can use a Clear View sheet (CS-0121) or we made a pouch that was made out of a small plastic bag.  Special Celebrations (AC-0115) were added to make the shaker elements.

Nuture Your Dreams3

Foam Squares (AD-0085) were used to pop up the corrugated piece onto the Whip Cream card base.

The sentiment was stamped in Black Licorice ink on Whip Cream cardstock and I fussy cut it out but there is a coordinating die in the bundle that you can use as well. The sentiment was popped up using Foam Squares (AD-0084).

Our Liquid Colors are simply amazing to color with. They are available for purchase individually.  You can save some money by purchasing the original 12 colors as Bundle (BD-0303) and then adding on the remaining colors [Watermelon Fusion (IP-0142), Lavender Fusion (IP-0141) and Cool Pool (IP-0140)] that were added throughout the year.

Thank You Card | Banners & Bows Promotion

I saw this card on page 12 of the Celebrating Life’s Moments – Spring into Summer Trends mini catalog.  I loved how bright it was and thought what an awesome Thank You card for my customers.    I didn’t have the Banner Parade Dies (DI-0031) so I had to improvise but you’ll be happy to know that the Banner Parade Dies are on their way to me because after I made this card, I wanted to make sure that I had them in my stash of craft supplies.  I already have an Amaze machine (TO-0134) but if I didn’t, I would have bought the  Banner & Bows Bundle (BD-0391) [You will understand why when you see that you get the Amaze Machine for Free as part of the Banner & Bows Bundle], you get some fun dies to play with and the Bundle Price is a fantastic.

Thank You Banners3

Let’s dive into how to make this card.

On a Huckleberry Fusion (CS-0015) card base, I attached a panel from the Sunday Adventure Prints (PP-0053).  I flagged the end using the Grand Pro Shears (TO-0064)  it would have been so much easier to use the Banners Parade Dies, [The Banner Parade Dies can be purchased separately or they are part of the Banners & Bows Bundle (BD-0391) Promotion], and cut  piece of Limeade Splash (CS-0020) and Lemon Drop (CS-0018) card stock.  I used the Charming Thank You (Host Exclusive with an order of $150 – DI-0445) to cut a piece of Black Licorice (CS-0003).  I used Craft Glue (AD-0111) to attach it to the card front.  [Did you know that the craft glue is part of the Banners & Bows Bundle as well].

Thank You Banners2

The sentiment comes from the Inside & Out (SS-0576) stamp set and was stamped in Black Licorice ink (IP-0041) onto a piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040)  card stock and cut out using the Journey Circles Dies (DI-0039).  I popped it up on the card front using Foam Squares (AD-0085).

Thank You Banners

The Butterfly comes from the Small Things Bundle (BD-0373) and was stamped in Black Licorice ink and cut it out using the coordinating dies and the Amaze machine.  I used Turbo Teal (IP-0125) and Electric Lime (IP-0121) splashes and a Blending Brush (TO-0097) to color in the Butterfly and popped it up on the front of the card using Foam Squares (AD-0084).

Thank You Banners4

To finish off the card I added  Journey Sequins – Blue Skies (AC-0113) using Glue Dots (AD-0083). 

How fun is this card?  Be sure to order your Banners & Bows Bundle (BD-0391). It is only available while supplies last. Check out all the fun items that are included in this bundle – and you get the Amaze Die Cutting Machine Free* – Amazing!!!!

Beautiful Day

I have said it before and I’ll say it again. This month’s Bloom Box is over the top.  This design was included in this month’s box and I loved it so much I had to recreate it.  Here is the alternative version I came up with.  I used the contents of the April 2018 Bloom Box and added a few other items.

Beautiful Day

In your Bloom Box the front panel is already die cut.  Since I used it I needed to create a new panel and I did this using Buttercream (CS-0006) cardstock,  Journey Rectangles Die (DI-0041) and the Fancy Label Die (DI-0035).  On this panel I stamped the floral image from the April 2018 Bloom Box – Love Life in Lemon Drop (IP-0043) and Citrus Cooler (IP-0048) ink.

Beautiful Day3

I stamped the butterfly from the Small Things Bundle (BD-0373) in Black Licorice Ink and cut it out using the coordinating die.  I colored in the butterfly using our Gold Silk (IP-0096) and a Blending Brush(TO-0097).

Beautiful Day2

I love how it turned out and think this color combination is very striking.

Small Things | Thanks

I love Butterflies as much as I love Sunflowers.  The images in the Small Things Bundle (BD-0373) are just gorgeous.  I love the different sizes and designs of the Butterfly images you can almost see them fluttering by.

Small Things Thanks

For this card I stamped a Whip Cream (CS-0040) panel with the images from the Small Things Bundle (BD-0373) in the following inks:  Cool Pool (IP-0074), Pretty Amethyst (IP-0018), and Watermelon Fusion (IP-0027).  On a scrap piece of Whip Cream card stock, I stamped one of the images in Black Licorice (IP-0041) and cut it out with the coordinating die.

Small Things Thanks4

Using the Journey Circles (DI-0039), I cut out a piece of Vellum (PP-0044) [we also have our Vellum Designer Prints (PP-0008)] and popped it up on the card front before popping up the Black Licorice Butterfly on top of that using Foam Squares (AD-0085).  Then adhered the Whip Cream panel to a piece of Sweet Berry (CS-0034) and then onto a Turbo Teal (CS-0127) card base.

Small Things Thanks2

Added some of the Classic Elegance Tape (AC-0291) and Sweet Romance (AC-0290) [Sweet Romance is a Bloom Benefit – you can get it for free with an order of $100 or more].  On another piece of Whip Cream, I stamped the Thanks from the Inside &  Out (SS-0576) stamp set and the cut it out using our Detail Shears (TO-0063) and popped it up onto the card front using Foam Squares (AD-0084).

Small Things Thanks3

For the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Inside & Out (SS-0576) stamp set in Black Licorice ink on a piece of Whip Cream card stock.
