Here in Alberta we have been in a deep freeze lately with temperatures of around -40 with wind chill. Needless to say it's a good time to enjoy scrapping in your jammies where it's nice and warm. It is supposed to *warm* up soon....that's if you call zero warm! After what we've had, it will feel almost spring like!
My latest card is one that I've seen on Pinterest, but never tried till now. It looks difficult, but it isn't.....thanks to all the tutorials you can find on Youtube. Here is my version of a Twist & Pop-Up Card.
The papers I used are *Authentique Genuine Collection* 6x6 pad.
Lots of denim & navy with a little bit of mustard.
The die is *Colchester Houses* from Poppy Stamps.
I have also been working on something else...a rag quilt. I'll share that with you on my next post.
I love *scene* cards, and Ive been watching tons of videos lately, hoping to learn how to do them.....and it seems to me that really, anything goes!
So I decided to just go for it!
Here's what I came up with.
First I stamped the trees, then without re-inking the stamp I stamped again to make it look as if there are trees in the background. Then I added the mask for the moon, using a post-it note. Next, I sponged on the colours, using light blue, denim blue and lavender. Then came the die cut deer and the sentiment, both popped up on dimensionals. Lastly, I layered with black & pink and added it to a black card.
The finished card measures approx. 5.25" x 6".
Thanks for popping in today, hope you like what you've seen and I hope you have a *lovely rest of your day*!
I tried a different fold for this card....not sure of the name, I've seen it called a triple panel fold card, also a pop out card. Whatever the name, it's a very fun and easy card to make. I've included a tutorial below.
The black polka dot paper is from the *Chalkboard Tableau* stack....a Hot Buy from Michaels. I stamped the smaller white square with a stampin'Up stamp, sorry, don't know the name of it.
The cute bird is from the *Honeycomb Happiness* set, also from stampin'Up & coloured with Copic markers.
The sentiment is from the *Wetlands* stamp set.
Here is a quick tutorial.
First, cut card stock to 8" x 5 1/2"
Score at 2" - 3" - 5" - 6"
Fold from the left.... valley - mountain - mountain - valley
Now we can cut the designer paper pieces as shown above...
3 pieces designer paper @ 1½" x 5 ¼"
1 piece of card stock @ 3½" x 3½"
1 piece designer paper @ 3¼" x 3¼"
1 piece of card stock @ 2⅝" x 2⅝"
1 piece designer paper @ 2½" x 2½"
Glue all the pieces, using whatever glue you prefer to use. I used dimensionals to pop up the top square piece.
Now you can decorate. I cut out a couple of flowers from the designer paper and stamped a sentiment, then popped these up with dimensionals.
