Bunches of HUGS!

Hi there!  It's Rebekah here today!

For this card I used the Misti Stamp Positioner to aline and stamp the sentiment along the side of  a white card panel that I die cut using the large, stitched rectangle die in the MFT Blueprints 25 . I used the Lots of Hugs Stamp  sentiment stamps also from MFT.  About 2/3 of the way down I used the larger hugs sentiment in the set and colored it with copic markers.

For the heart charms, I die cut white paper with the smallest heart in Stitched Heart STAX die set four times and colored each one with my copics for a perfect color matching to the sentiment. I tied the twine around the spine of the card and added the hearts to the ends of the twine. I added foam on the back of one heart and then attached the twine with Multi Matte Medium and then added the other heart. This adds some dimension and helps keep the heart charm safely attached to the twine.

MFT has a number of basic shapes in their STAX line all of which consists of several sizes of a particular shape nested inside one another. I have several of these and they are staples in my crafting stash! Here is were you can find them in the store - My Favorite Things STAX

Bearing Gifts - Pop Up Box Card

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Nicky back with you today with a very fun pop up box card using the brand new Scalloped Box Card Pop-Up by Lawn Fawn.  If you never fancied the challenge of a box card before ..... well, it just got quite a bit easier!

No more measuring, the Lawn Cuts craft die will do all the thinking for you and all you have to do is have lots of creative fun making the card.  I used Lawn Fawn's Lawn Cuts Grassy Border, die-cutting it several times over so that I could stack the grassy edges inside the card.  For today's box card I decided to use the relatively new Bearing Gifts stamp set by Reverse Confetti.   The bear in his car and the trees and background mountains were all stamped with Archival Ink and watercolour painted using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.  They were then die cut and applied to the card, slowly but surely building the scene.

The panels that are layered on top of the flaps were made using papers from the lovely Watercolor Wash 6x6 Paper Pack by My Favorite Things.  I also used touches of the Uni-Ball Signo White Pen to highlight various points on all of the card's components.

No matter which way you turn the card there is something of interest and of course it all folds neatly flat into standard A2 dimensions.

I gave the reverse of my card the pretty panels but otherwise kept it blank since this is the only place to write your personal message to the recipient.

I do hope this card inspires you to make your own!  Have a wonderful and creative week, I will be back again next Tuesday and meanwhile you can also follow me on Instagram #nickynoocards, Pinterest and Facebook.

Spring Flowers with Lawn Fawn!

Happy Monday! Kim with you this morning to share a spring flowers kind of project! March begins in a few days, daylight will become more present which is the beginning of the end of winter! Yay!

My project today features some new Lawn Fawn which can all be found in the Butterfly Reflections Ink shop!

I started by die cutting my Dotted Square die by Lawn Fawn out of Neena Solar White and then die cut the centre with the MFT Peek-A-Boo Circle Windows (love that die set).  I then stamped a bunch the flowers and the butterfly from the new Lawn Fawn Fab Flowers Set in multiple die inks.  I used the matching dies and die cut all the images including one of the "Happies" from the Happpy, Happy, Happy Lawn Cuts set out of dark pink paper from the Watercolor Wishes 6 x 6 paper pack (these two new paper packs rock my little world...I will definitely need more).  I then stamped my birthday sentiment from the Happy, Happy, Happy stamp set in Versafine Onyx black on lavender card stock.  Once all of the elements were die cut, that beautiful plaid pattern paper from the new Rainbow Perfectly Plaid 6 x 6 was screaming my name so I cut a piece to place in back of the white panel, it worked beautifully with my images!

I then used a variety of Nuvo Jewel Drops for accents along with my white gell pen. I really like the way this project turned out, the colors made me all kinds of happy!

Have a great week!

Cottontail Cuties

Happy Saturday! 

Today I'm featuring the super popular Cottontail Cuties from Neat & Tangled! I also used a few Avery Elle dies that I LOVE for creating scenes. 

I started my card by stamping and die cutting the girl and bunny image from Cottontail Cuties and coloring them with Copics. Next I blended the background using Distress Oxides. I used Peeled Paint, Cracked Pistachio and Faded Jeans. These new inks are so creamy and blend beautifully. 

I added the Picket Fence die cut from Avery Elle and cut out the window using Scalloped Pierced Rectangles.

I put all the pieces together and then stamped the sentiment. 

Thanks for joining me today!

Sweet Forest Friends Flop Card

Hey friends, Christy here with an extra fun interactive card -- a flop card! This was my first attempt at one, but I will definitely be making more of these babies in the future! I just can't stop playing with it!

These Sweet Forest Friends by MFT were clamoring to be inked up, so I chose them to be the today's stars. I colored up practically every image included in the set with Copic markers, then set them aside. For my card base, I first adhered some patterned paper from the Shimelle Little By Little 6x6, then to create my "flop" panel I used the MFT Flop Card Rectangle Die-namics. To finish off the scene I added a couple of MFT Cloud 9 dies, as well as some Lawn Fawn Grassy Borders to both the front and inside panels. The trick of this card is to make sure to assemble your scene so that there's a surprise when you open it up. So I placed my tree and critters to the far left on the inside. Then I let a cloud, butterfly and flower be visible on the right, so even when the card is closed, you get a sneak peek of what might be inside. So fun! My sentiments were stamped in Lawn Fawn Noble Fir ink.

To really see this card in action, check out the video below. You can click on the YouTube icon at the bottom right corner if you'd like to watch it over there in HD and of course, I would love for you to subscribe! I hope have as much fun watching as I did making it! Have an awesome day!
