Hi Everyone! Luci here from My Crazy Craft Life with a Concertina Popup Card! The card closed will fit in a 5 1/2 inch square envelope, it’s pretty thick so you can get away with using a 6-inch square envelope.
I really wanted to use what was in the kit and all of the Concertina cards I saw like this were 6 inches square so I figured out all of the measurements so you can use an 8 1/2 X 11-inch piece of cardstock.
Hi Everyone! Luci here from My Crazy Craft Life with a super-easy Diamond Fun Fold Card! The card closed measures 4 inches square. I also give you a quick tip for making envelopes when you don’t have one to fit your square card!
I stamped and the puppy images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copic Markers I used my Scan N Cut to cut the puppy images out.
I cut a panel of 110lb Neenah white cardstock to 5 1/2 X 4 inches, stamped and masked the scene stamps with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored the scene with Copic markers. I was not happy with the coloring at all and ended up cutting the panel down to 5 1/2 X about 3 inches.
If you want to make scene cards but are not sure about drawing your own the “Spring Scenes” stamp set is perfect. There are so many options with this one set for perfect scenes every time.
I used the dies to cut out a border on the top and bottom of a 5 1/2 X 4-inch panel on the 5 1/2 inch side. I ended up making the panel 5 1/2 by about 3 3/4 inches.
I stamped the sentiment with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink, on a circle I cut out of white cardstock. I used my Misti to position the stamps to fit. The “& puppy dog kisses” is all one piece and I thought it would be cute to have the sentiment follow the curve of the circle instead of cutting it down. By using a stamping platform I was able to get the entire sentiment positioned and stamp it all at one time.
I used a black gel pen for the one puppy’s nose, used a white gel pen for their eyes, and added just a little Glossy Accents to the puppy’s bow and nose!
I made an A2 size card or 5 1/2 X 4 1/4 inches, I cut a panel to 5 1/4 X 4 inches for the scene. I made some masks for the images, and I stamped and masked as I went, using Momento Tuxedo Black Ink for stamping the images I was going to color.
I drew in lines for the cabana, horizon, and beach with a pencil before I started ink blending and then colored the images. After I finish coloring and blending I stamped and embossed the sentiment. I added the glossy accents, the Sparkle Pen for the reflection of the sunset on the water. After it dried I adhered the panel to the card base and used a black Zig Marker to outline the wires on the string lights.
This is an A2 size card or 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 inches. I used a dark brown card base from my stash. I stamped the leaves on the back of the glitter paper and scanned through my Scan N Cut, then I flipped the glitter paper over so the glitter side was facing up and let the machine cut out the images. I stamped the images of the fox and acorn from the stamp set and colored them with Copic markers (colors in the photo below). I didn’t color the leaf of the acorn because I stamped that on the back of the Glitter paper and cut it too.
Once I finished up the images I used the Lawn Fawn Knock on Wood Paper Pad and cut the back panel in orange to 4 X 5 1.4 inches. The turquoise colored piece was 4 X 3/4 inches. The used dies from a Karen Burniston set to cut the yellow background piece and the light brown scalloped edge piece of pattern paper and layered all the pieces onto the card.
I stamped the sentiment on the top of the top panel of the card, adhered the acorn and used foam tape on the fox and placed it on the card.
Hi Everyone! Luci here with a few cards using the Picket Fence Studios “String of Lights” stamp set.
I love how simple yet lovely these cards were!
To start I picked out A2 size card bases from my stash, cut down white cardstock panels to 4 X 5 1/4 inches. Then I stamped the images and sentiment together using my Mini Misti and Brutus Monroe embossing ink. I picked red, silver, gold, and green embossing powders and heat embossed them. I adhered the card panels to the card bases. Then I simply added some embellishments for one I used sequins from an old SFL FOTM card kit and the rest I used Nuvo Crystal Nuvo Drops, the colors I used were Autumn Red and Silver Lining. Easy Peasy right!
