Fly a Kite - Pretty Pink Posh

Hello there! I'm stopping by again to share a card I made using Pretty Pink Posh,  Fly A Kite stamp set and the coordinating Fly A Kite Dies. These two sets are now on sale for 25% off until April 22.  I love how versatile these set are. You can use them alone or add a critter stamp set to create fun scenes.


To begin, I stamped the images from the Fly A Kite and the adorable Bunny Friends stamp sets with Copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating dies.


To make the background panel, I trimmed Bristol paper to A2 size and ink blended it with Picked Raspberry, Spun Sugar, Cracked Pistachios, and Peacock Feathers.


To make the two front panels, I die-cut white cardstock with a die from Scallop Borders Dies. I foam mounted it to the background panel as shown.


I die-cut two clouds using the cloud die from Fly A Kite Dies. I lightly inked the bottom with distress inks. On one of the clouds, I embossed he sentiment in silver.


Lastly, I foam mounted the the clouds and the images to the card front. For some sparkle, I glued on Jewels. Love love love the jewels from Pretty Pink Posh! The color are so pretty and look awesome in shaker cards as well.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed my project! Make sure to visit Pretty Pink Posh to check out the awesome sale! Happy cardmaking!!

MFT APRIL BIRTHDAY PROJECT - SHAKER CARD

Shaker cards are ridiculously addictive - both to create and to play with. That “shooka, shooka” sound your recipient will hear before they even break the envelope’s seal is a sure sign that something AMAZING will be found within! Join the team this month as we share inventive birthday-themed shaker cards



For my Birthday Project, I made a card using the adorable BB Birthday Chicks stamp set along with the Horizontal Collage Cover - Up Die-namics.


To begin, I stamped the images from BB Birthday Chicks stamp set and colored them with Copics. After, I cut them out with the coordinating dies. 


For the background panel, I trimmed Bristol paper to little smaller than A2 size and blended it with Distress Oxides. To add texture I spritzed it with water. Once dried, I stamped the sentiment with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink.

I made the widow panel by die-cutting white cardstock with Horizontal Collage Cover - Up Die-namics. I added trimmed acetate behind the panel.


To assemble the card, I added star sequins for the shaker element and foam mounted the window panel on top of the background panel (trapping the stars within each box).


To finish, I adhered the colored images on top of the window panel and adhered the card to a top folding A2 size card base.

Hello! Thanks for stopping by! For Mama Elephant's Stamp Highlight today the design team is showcasing Little Agenda Frames that was created for the adorable little agenda stamp sets. You can find variety of shapes and design frames to create a collage for your card.


 I used the Little Agenda Frames along with the Little Monkey Agenda stamp sets on my card. I stamped the images from both stamp sets and colored them with Copic markers. After, I die-cut them with the coordinating Little Monkey Agenda Creative Cuts and Little Agenda Frames Creative Cuts (I used the dies to cut the outside and the inside of the frames).


To make the little background panels for the frames, I die-cut white cardstock with just the outside frame dies and ink blended it with Distress Oxides. On the die-cut circle panel, I stamped sentiment "Hello There" as shown. Then, I mounted the frames on top of the inked panels with two layers of foam tape. After, I mounted the little monkeys as shown with a single layer of foam tape to create a shadow box frames.


I adhered the frames to a front panel that was die-cut with a frame die from Framed Tags Hexastar Creative Cuts. To finish, I adhered the front panel to an A2 sized natural cardstock then to a white card base. I hope you enjoyed today's project!
