Boy Birthday Card with Lawn Fawn’s Pivot Pop Up Die and Waffleflower Batter Stamp Set…

Hi everyone!  Back with another boy birthday card!  I saw the idea for this card on a fb group.  I bought a cut file from the Silhouette store for the front.  I cut it on my Scan and Cut machine.

I used a combination of Waffleflower stamps and Lawn Fawn stamps for the sentiments.  The cute ball players are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic Sketch Markers.

The pivot pop up card mechanism die is from Lawn Fawn.

 

The cloud is the smaller of the Memory Box Marshmallow cloud set.  The hill border from Lawn Fawn.

I’ve always loved silhouettes… so fun to be able to cut my own!

A couple more inside shots and then a video of how it works….

These pattern papers are from my stash.  Oldies but perfect for this, from Lasting Impressions for Paper.

 

 

 

Linking up to the SSS Wednesday Moving Parts Challenge.

Thanks so much for stopping by to see this Summer card!  It was a shame the boys didn’t get to play this year.  I’ll link up what I used below.

Karen Burniston Coffee Cup Pop-up Card…

Here’s that cup of Joe you said you needed! 😀 This was so fun to make!

The white piece of card sticking out the side on the right of the mug is a gift card… I know, I know… we were at WM but I forgot to pick up a gift card!  We were thinking Easter stuff!  hehe

Here’s a close up of the sentiment… I just used a piece from the paper pad…

And here’s the front!

More pieces of the 6×6 patter paper pad and a stamped sentiment from a Hero Arts stamp set.  I used Carta Bella Flora No 1 6×6 pad that isn’t available anymore, so I linked below to Carta Bella Flora No 2.  Same type of look to it.

Linking to some challenges…

poppystamps Bridge Fold Card and Memory Box tag…

Here we are at countdown week and I’m just ‘elfing” away here! Lots of fun to create still!  eek! I wanted to share a couple things today though and hopefully be back with more!

I love making these Bridge Fold cards with the poppystamps or Memory Box frames on the front.

For this one, I used poppystamps Pine Needle Clearing die cut from Neenah 110# Solar White cardstock and inked with Peeled Paint Distress ink and an ink blending tool.

I die cut the Memory Box Small Winter Sled from the same white cardstock and colored it with Copics (E40’s, E07) and a silver gel pen. I die cut poppystamps Poinsettia Mini from the same white cardstock and colored the largest with Copic YG67 and the smaller two with Copic R46.

The fence is from the Memory Box Open Studio Fanciful Fences die set. Again die cut in the same white and I just left it white.

The house is poppystamps new Classic Cottage die, cut from the same white and colored with Copics too, E07, E47, E81, E83, T3 and T5.

Two snow hills cut with the Memory Box Stitched Curves die set. Same white cardstock.

In the very back you’ll see the new poppystamps Tree Trunks die.  I cut it in white also and colored it with Copics E44 and 47.

Then there is this super cute new Surprise Deer die, new from poppystamps too.  I die cut it from kraft cardstock and inked the edges with Distress ink Gathered Twigs and an ink blending too.  I added a few white spot with a white gel pen.

here’s a photo of the layers..sorry, I forgot to change the F-stop to make it all in focus but I think you can still see….

The tree trunks cut is mounted directly to the cardbase with strips of  thin mounting tape. The fence and cottage are mounted to a snow hill. The deer (legs) are glued directly to a snow hill. The pine needles cut is glued directly to the card base and the fence is mounted to the top with thin mounting tape foam.

This is an A2 size card and folds flat to mail… I make sure it fits through the ¼ inch slot the PO requires for one postage stamp.

I mail my A2 cards in an A6 size envelope though.  I just feel like it protects them better… postage is the same.

One more photo!  A tag I made with the new Memory Box Build a Snowman die.

I played around with this last week and now I can’t remember what ink I used for the background.  I’m sure it was Distress but not sure if it’s oxide or regular.  Pattern paper for the hat and scarf.  Nuvo drops for his ‘coal’ eyes, nose and buttons.  I had a terrible time with the eyes, whew, good thing they can be coal cuz this was the third time! lol

Fresh Snowfall Nuvo on the snowflake from the new poppystamps Shiny Snowflakes dies.

The tag is an Avery Elle set.. I don’t usually mix other companies with ps or MB but one of the granddaughters had extra cut and it was just laying there and I didn’t even think! 😀

Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoyed my card/tag and are enjoying all the ‘making’ of the season!  I am!

Memory Box Sleighing in a Winter Wonderland Bridge Fold Card…

Hi you guys!  I wish you could come over and see this card in real life!!!  I’m so excited to share it with you!

I made a video so I’m not going to cover every detail with text here…

I forgot to say in the video though, that I did a Distress Oxide ink background with Salty Ocean, Faded Jeans, Wilted Violet and Black Soot on the mail card-base.  Water Splatters and Frost Shimmer Spray splatters on it too!  I love it so much! lol

I used several dies and I cover that in the video and links below because yes, you do need these!  I use these dies over and over… for timeless creations. hehe

LOOK!!!  It folds flat to fit in an A-2 envelope!  So awesome and you don’t really need any embellishing because it’s so stunning on it’s own!

I added sparkle to the roof, trees and flakes but it’s still hard to see.  I used a Spectrum Noir Clear Glitter brush pen.

This last picture is with my iPhone…at night under the Ott lite but oops…photo bombing stuff all around! lol  I love how you can see that one frost circle that looks like a moon?!

A Lawn Fawn Jungle Birthday Pop Up Box…

Hello everyone! A wild birthday card for you today!  This is the pop up box card die from Lawn Fawn that is so much fun! I forgot to take pictures of it folded up before I gave it to Gilbert Sunday. ugh.  It truly does fold, lay flat and fit in an A2 size envelope!

So much fun for a little color book therapy and then a chance to use a big piece of that pattern paper hoard!  I should make more of these! I can’t resist buying pattern paper but I have a hard time working it into the card design most of the time.

I used Lawn Fawn’s Wild For You stamp and die sets, Box Card pop up die set, Rectangle die, grass die and the words ‘rawr’ and ‘wish big’ came from the Critters from the Past stamp set. Almost forgot the balloons!  They are from the Bicycle Built for You stamp set.

The images were all stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink in the MISTI stamping tool and then colored with Copic Sketch Markers. Very basic coloring.

The pattern paper is Lawn Fawn’s 12 x 12 size, Perfectly Plaid Rainbow Collection.

Gibby liked it!  YAY…he was so excited for his 5th birthday and he loved his presents too!  It was so hot…they’d been swimming!  lol  He’s just one of our many red heads!  ❤

Happy 2nd Birthday!

Not all monkeys belong at the zoo!!!  Some should be at birthday parties!

Cupcake Monkey here to sing Happy Birthday to you and share your birthday celebration! I inked him up with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on what…hmmm… can’t remember which paper I used…eek, that was just last night!  It was just a piece laying there! lol  Anyway,  what fun he is to color!  I used Copic Sketch markers, E30’s for his body and E11 on his cheeks and tummy button.  The cupcake paper is the E20’s,  I wanted to use my new E23 again. lol  The cherry is R46, 89, 59… dark cherry… : )  Grass is YG 95, 97, 99.

I made this Free standing pop up card again…. love it… kids love it… the tutorial is on SCS, HERE.  The cupcake border is an EK Success deep edger border punch… tied 1/8th in. grosgrain ribbon in the holes on the top… it’s from Creative Impressions.   Pattern paper is from American Crafts….leaf branch is a Sizzix Sizzlet die.  The number 2 is from the Quickutz die set Diesel, the circle punch is from EK Success and the label punch is from Stampin Up. The cupcake frosting is a Sharpie white poster pin kinda dabbed on so you get some texture.

Linking my pop up Monkey card to Sandys Challenge #3 blogHERE.

Hope I made you smile with this cutie critter!  Be back tomorrow!
