Your Next Stamp Make A Wish Card Video

Hello fellow card makers.

Today I am sharing with you a card I made for the Your Next Stamp Design Team. We were challenged to create a project with the theme "Make A Wish". To see the rest of the design teams creations visit the Your Next Stamp Blog (CLICK HERE!)

As for my card, I used the brand new Silly Birthday Monsters Stamp Set to create this Make a Wish Selfie! The cell phone and message stamps are by Hero Arts. The cell phone was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink several times to get good coverage with such a solid stamp. I then stamped the messages on the top and bottom with the same ink. I masked of the area where I wanted to create my selfie images. I then stamped and masked images accordingly to create this arrangement of silly monsters, at a party. I fussy cut the cell phone out by hand.

The background is a piece of Simon Says Stamp Fog Cardstock. I stamped the images from the Starburst Background Stamp set in coordinating Fog ink. The sentiment was stamped with Versafine Oynx Black ink. I popped up the cell phone image with foam tape and added some nuvo crystal drops in Ebony Black to complete todays project.

For images of my card, a link to the YouTube video I made creating this project and links to the supplies used, look below.

Scrapbook.com Nested Tag Dies Card Video

Hello fellow card makers.

Today I am sharing a project I made with Scrapbook.com exclusive dies (CLICK HERE!) to visit Scrapbook.com. The wonderful people at Scrapbook.com sent me two die sets to play with. I was sent both the nested tag dies that I'm playing with today and the nested tag banner dies. Which I will have another video using that set on Aug. 30th while my family is on vacation at Disney World. (excited face). Visit Scrapbook.com

Today I used the nested tag dies exclusive to Scrapbook.com. This set is huge, way bigger than I expected. I picked a size that I thought worked well for my idea. I am also using Avery Elle's Tropics Stamp Set and Coordinating dies as well as Avery Elle's Stay Fresh Dies. I took the Aloha die from the Stay Fresh set and cut it out four times from a piece of Neenah Solar White 110 lb cardstock that had been stuck to double sided stick it adhesive sheets. I made sure the sticky side was on the front of the die. This makes it easier to adhere all four layers together as well as my next technique. I used Nuvo Sparkle Dust in Gold Shine on the front top layer of the Aloha die. I coated the front with the sparkle dust careful to press it firmly in place to keep it adhered well. This stuff really does sparkle. It is so pretty in real life. Some things, you just can't capture on camera.

I cut the back of my tag out of Neenah 110 lb Solar White cardstock and the front with Papertrey Inks Soft Stone. On the front tag I used a smaller tag from the Scrapbook.com nested tag dies to cut a window. After adhering a piece of Papertrey Inks Soft Stone Stripped Patterned Paper to the back tag. I popped up the front tag with Scotch 3M foam tape and stuck them together. This made a nice sturdy base for my design.

I stamped several of the tropical images from Avery Elle's Tropics stamp set using Altenew Inks. I cut them out using the coordinating dies. I adhered the Aloha die I created to the center of the window with Ranger Multi Medium Matte adhesive. After giving it a few mins to dry I began to arrange my tropical images onto the tag with Scrapbook.com tape runner adhesive. The reinforcer for around the tags hole was also treated with Nuvo Sparkle Dust in Gold Shine to match.

To finish off the tag, I added some retired Avery Elle ribbon and some Nuvo Crystal Drops in Oyster Grey in the centers of the flowers.

A Stampin' Up! Birthday Banners Collaboration Card Video

Hello fellow card makers.

Today I am sharing with you my first collaboration video. I asked Alicia, better known as Crazy Paper Chick of YouTube, to do a Collaboration video with me. For this project we are both using Stampin' Up!'s Birthday Banners stamp set to create our projects. I have done a boy themed birthday card and Alisha will be doing a girl themed project. I don't know what she has come up with so I will be just as surprised as you are to see her creation. So after you are done here, head on over to her blog to see what she has come up with. (Click Here!) < Crazy Paper Chick! Here is a link to her video https://youtu.be/3rPaAhcoXtw

My card was heavily inspired by the cards I found in the Stampin' Up! annual catalog. I was so impressed with the products Stampin' Up! has this year. I just had to create a card using this set. They make it look so easy. I used the candles to create a wonky collage with a sentiment banner on the front. I love how Stampin' Up! uses texture as well as color combinations to create such stunning products. I used a Darice embossing folder to add some texture to my front panel. It is polka dots. This combination of Lemon Lime Twist and Night of Navy actually makes a very bright card. It was hard for me to photograph. I didn't capture just how deep the navy blue cardstock really is.

To see images of my project, a link to my YouTube video creating this card, and links to the products used, look below.
