Happy Birthday - Movie card

Happy Fridy Everyone,

I was asked by a client to make a Birthday card for her friend. I was told he's a fun guy and was given a list of his likes. From there I choose to use movies, jelly beans and glitter. FUN right. Once I got an idea in my head and went back and asked her for a few pictures. She sent me a hilarious one where he has a wig on. I took that into photoshop and used the "Stamp Filter" to create the picture you see in the film strip. Then I added additional elements like the stars and camera. The camera and sentiment are from Lawn Fawn's Say Cheese too. The stars are older SU wood stamps I had. The flim strip I bought at a scrapbook expo a few years back. I added transparency over the images as well.
Here is a close up of the clapboard (I had to look the name up ha-ha). This I made completely by had a pencil, white pen and a ruler. It was pretty fun to make too. I used his birthday information here.
Here is a close up of the film reel. I cut 1/4 in strips of transparency put adhesive on each strip and rolled it around untill it was the thickness I wanted. For the reel itself I punched a 1 in circle then used a 1/4 punch to make the holes around it and in the middle. I then ran a grey copic (W9) all over the showing transparency to give it the film a worn look.

Below that is my box of Jellybeans. I created this by hand as well, drawing everyone of those little jelly beans with different color copic. I hand cut the little box and added transpareny as a little window and then blinged it out.
Here is the inside. This is the original picture I used to create the images on the front.

 And of course I had to make my sticker on the back match so this is what it looks like too :-)

Baby Shower Robot Card

Hi everyone,

If you're a fan of Lilypad, which I am, then a few months back you saw the video of how to create a Robot using Lawn Fawn's Bake me a Cake stamp set! I loved Vicky's creativity and thought if I ever needed a Robot I'd try it. Well guess what? I needed a Robot. I was requested by a client to make a baby shower card for her friend. The colors were Blue and Brown and the theme was Robots. I had a lot of fun making this card and I'm very happy with the way it turned out. Take a look!

Here is the front of the card. All the papers are from the DCWV Linen Stack. The image is made with Lawn Fawn's "Bake me a Cake" set, the banner is made with "Bannerific", the sentiment is from "Sophie's Sentiments". The distress inks are Weathered Wood and Vintage Photo.
 Here is a side angle to show that the image is popped up. You can also get a peek at the inside.
 And here is the inside. Again I used the same papers as the front but here I used Lawn Fawn's "Plus One" set for the sentiment and added a bow.
Here is the link to the video if you too want to try out this fun Robot idea!

Cards for Stamp Fever Class Oct 29th and Nov. 1st

Hi everyone,

Here are the cards I'll be making for my next card class at Stamp Fever on Saturday, October 29th and Tuesday, November 1st.

The first card we'll be creating a layered base and this adorable Turkey! Gooble Gooble!! Isn't he a cutie.

 The second card is a slightly changed version of the card I made for Lily Pad. Here we use heat embossing on transparency. The picture doesn't do the ornament justice. It's embossed on both sides adding texture and sparkle!
The third card is the one that I made for my Lily Pad designer spot. When I had the idea in my head I knew it would be making this with my class as well. The window is super fun and easy. And this Penny Black set is too cute.

Cards from my Lilypad guest Designer Spot

Hi everyone and welcome to my new followers. If you didn't click through to my Lily Pad Guest Designer spot yesterday, I wanted to post the cards I made for them here. However, if you want the supply list, hop on over to my Lilypad post HERE to get it.

Here is the first card I made using Penny Black's Mimi's Halloween and Lawn Fawn's Happy Hauntings. I used a masking to create the background.
For my second card I used Lawn Fawn's Ornate Ornaments and Hero Arts Wood Grain background. I created the Ornament using transparency and stickles which makes it glassy and see through like a normal ornament would be.
For my third card I wanted to create a window with an indoor and outdoor scene. I used Penny Black's Mimi's Christmas and Hero Arts Starry Night. I used transparency in the window.

Lunar Light Birthday Card

I made this card for my friend and co-worker using Lawn Fawn's Lunar Lights stamp set. Her favorite color is purple and she is the BLING queen so I had to make it sparkle. I made the backgroud paper using the smaller lanterns from the set. I stamped them with versamark "Sparkle" and used clear glitter empossing powder. I then distressed the background with Ranger inks (Spun Suger, then Milled Lavendar, then Dusty Concord)

For the main image I stamped the larger Lantern and colored it with Copics. After I colored it, I rubbed the Versamark sparkle all over the image then used the clear glitter embossing powder all over. This gave it that SUPER sparkle look and I didn't have to wait for any glitter glue to dry!! It doesn't look like it here but I then cut the image out and popped it up. I used a super light yellow copic around the edge of the base paper to give it that glow effect. I also used the same copic purples to color the matte paper circle so it would match the image.

No card is complete without a decorated inside!! Here I used another lantern and sentiment from the same set. I also gave this image a little glow as well.
I gave it to her today and she loved it. Hope you do too. Happy Birthday Susan!!

Busy Making Cards....

I'm in full card making mood getting ready for... My Guest Designer spot on Lily Pad Cards. My cards will be posted there on October 13th. Make sure to stop of there and take a look.

I'm also making the card samples for my next Stamp Fever class on October 29th. I'll be making 1 Thanksgiving card and 2 Christmas Cards. I've drawn out my messy little sketches and I'm in the process of making them come to life. I dont use the computer to draw my sketches I just scribble on paper when an idea pops in my head. I think I will post both the cards and the sketches when I'm finished. So stay tuned. I'm very excited to share my newest creations :-)
