Discover Mini Album with Clear Scraps

Hi everyone, I'm on the Clear Scraps blog using one of the Wood Cards.


Measuring approximately 3 3/4" x 5 3/4", the Blank Wood Card has endless possibilities.  I decided to turn it into a mini album.


The panels were inked (but also could have been painted) with coral ink.  Once dry, I used the Grass Stencil with green ink along the bottom.


The Bike with Basket Chipboard Embellishment was inked in an assortment of colors, then embossed/heat set.  


I added a few tags I had in my stash which help set the tone of this album.


Thanks for stopping by.

Fairy Scene Building

Hi everyone, it's a new month and the challenge on the Scor-Pal blog is to create anything you want, just be sure it includes more than one score.

I've created a wonderful fairy scene in this month's card.


It may look a bit fiddly, but it is so easy (and so much fun) to create.

Start by cutting white cardstock into 2 pieces, each 5 1/2" x 8 1/2".
Score both panels at 2 1/8", 4 1/4", 6 3/8".  


Center an oval die on the 4 1/4" score line on one of the panels.


Die cut the panel.  Save the die cut oval as you will need it to complete the card.


Using the 2nd panel, start creating your scene.  
Use the 2 outer score lines as a guide to setting your scene.


Using the die cut panel, continue building your scene, using the back panel as a guide.


To assemble the card, I placed Scor Tape along both outer edges.
Since I wanted the ability to tie the card closed, I added a 6" strip of ribbon on the panels.


I adhered the left side of the card first.
Then folded the card over to complete the card.


For the card front, I stamped a phrase on the die cut oval and matted it with a larger die cut panel.


Striped cardstock was added to the card front and the die cut phrase was added next.


I am so happy with how this card turned out.

Please stop by thScor-Pal blog to see what the designers have created this month.

Thanks for stopping by.

Blank Page Muse Stencil - Eyes Stencil

Stamp the images and color with Copic Markers.


Die cut green cardstock to create the card flap.  Fit the stamped images behind the flaps.  Mat with black cardstock and add to a white card.  Using the stencil, ,place it over the green panel and ink wit brown ink.  Move the stencil around the panel until it's inked.  Reminds me of the rings a flower pot creates.

Fairy Hugs Leafy Canoe with Azalea

 Hi everyone, I have another Fairy Stamper project to share.  




The Fairy Hugs Leafy Canoe is perfect for any number of projects.  I stamped it with brown ink, then colored the flowers yellow.  For dimension, I added brown brads to the flower centers.  Fairy Hugs Azalea was stamped in blue ink and, using a masking technique, I placed her in the canoe.


After inking around the stamped images, I die cut the image and matted with a larger die.


I created a card from green cardstock, then stamped the Fairy Hugs Ivy Corner across the card using first and second generation stamping.



I added the stamped panel to the card with foam adhesives.  Finally, I added some stickles to Azalea's wings.

Thanks for stopping by.










Clear Scraps Autograph Album

Hi everyone, I'm on the Clear Scraps blog with a mini album today.

.
I used the Mouse Wood Card, choosing to turn it into an autograph album.  With the world finally opening up, how fun would it be to gather signatures of your favorite characters at Disney in this Disney specific album.


I inked the covers with yellow ink because it was handy.  But I could also have painted the covers.


I cut about a dozen pages to fit inside and then punched holes.

Placing the 6" Dandelion Wind stencil on the front cover, I inked portions with brown ink.


To finish I placed several metal word titles from my stash on the cover.

Thanks for stopping by.

Gratitude with Rinea Foiled Papers

Hi everyone, I'm on the Rinea blog today with a set of fall themed cards.  It's never too early to create for fall right?



I used a wonderful set of dies from Sizzix.  It includes all you need to create these cards.  Die cutting the diamond shapes gives you the possibility of using the full shape or the exterior frame.


Die cutting the frame from Silver/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper, I adhered the pinecones and leaves to one corner.  The pinecones are beautifully details and that really shows with the Mocha/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper.  Assorted leaves were die cut from Emerald/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper, Jade/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper and Marigold/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper.


I used the same elements on the next die cut panel and added them in the bottom corner.


Creating a card from black cardstock, I die cut a panel of Emerald/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper and adhered the panel on top.  The phrase was stamped on white cardstock and matted with Emerald/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper before adding it to the card.


The other panel was adhered directly to a black card and the phrase was matted with Marigold Starstruck before being added to the card.


Thanks for stopping by.

Pretty in Purple

 Hi everyone, I have another Fairy Stamper project to share.


I wanted to focus on FH EstrellaEstrella, so I stamped her in purple on white cardstock.  I masked her then stamped the FH Pine Branch in brown ink.  FH Grass was stamped along the bottom edge.


The card was created using TLC Designs Oval Lily Frame.  Cardstock was folded in half and the die was placed over the fold so a card could be created.  A separate frame was die cut and adhered to the front creating the full card.

The stamped panel was die cut with the included oval frame, then added to the card.  A bow was created using the included bow die, then adhered to the top of the card.


Nuvo Drops were added to the Pine Branches for dimension.

Thank you for stopping by.

Whale Friends with TLC Designs.

 Hi everyone, I've got a new card to share using assorted products from  TLC Designs.

Did you know that TLC Designs has a lot of digital images in additional to the photopolymer stamps and dies?  If you haven't, go check them out. 




I've used images from these sets:  Seahorse Sam Digital Stamp set and Fancy Fin Digital Stamp set along with paper from the Simply Sweet Digital Paper Pack.



All the elements were colored and fussy cut.  To create the waves, I used the die from the Land and Seas Dies, cutting it twice, and layering them together.



I used the Tiny Vine Oval Die to die cut blue cardstock, then as I wanted to cut the waves with the same edging, I taped the die in place, then recut the layers.



I used stamps from Hopping Friends, arranging them above the whales.

Thanks for stopping by.
