HELLO!! 
I'm here to share a Card I've made for the 2017 Card Design Superstar: Clean & Simple Genius!!
I WASN'T going to try out for this Challenge as I ALWAYS get SO NERVIOUS about trying to Compete as there are SO MANY AMAZING Designers out there, but the LONGER I thought about it the MORE I realized I just HAD to TRY!!
 
I had to use the SWEET BB Magical Dragons Stamp Set and the Coordinating BB Magical Dragons Die Set as the Focal for my Clean & Simple Card!! Then I used the Stitched Triple Peek-a-Boo Window & Edge to create the Cloud Die Cutting it just partially!! I added some Distress Ink and to create the feel of the Sky!! I Colored the Images with Copic Markers!! Some Tonic Studios Aqua Shimmer Pen and Morning Dew Nuvo Drops was added to the Heart Die Cut from the Discontinued Blueprints 11 Die Set!! I also used the Rectangle Die in the Blueprints 11 Die Set to create my Main Card Base!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the way it turned out!

THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by today!! I hope I've INSPIRED you to think OUTSIDE of the Box when making your Clean & Simple Cards!!

3-D Felt Flower Shaker Card for the 2017 Card Design Superstar: Innovation Master Challenge!! =)

Pin It


Hello!!
I'm here to share a Card I've made for the 2017 Card Design Superstar: Innovation Master!!
I WASN'T going to try out for this Challenge as I ALWAYS get SO NERVIOUS about trying to Compete as there are SO MANY AMAZING Designers out there, but the LONGER I thought about it the MORE I realized I just HAD to TRY!! Once I put the Nerves away, I had SO MANY Ideas for this Challenge!! I find I have MORE Ideas than Time to create them though!!
Does that happen to you!!??
If you're a Follower of mine you KNOW I LOVE LOVE LOVE to create Shaker/Interactive Cards!! So I just HAD to create one for this Challenge!!
I decided to create a 3-D Felt Flower Shaker Card!!
I started by Creating my own Patterned Background!! I wanted a Design that would be FUN, but would let the Flowers be the Focal!! So I Inked the Discontinued MFT On the Diagonal Stencil with some Tumbled Glass and Cracked Pistachio Distress Inks to create a Distressed/Imperfect Card Base Design!! Then I added some Water Splatters to make the Design even more Distressed!! I wanted a Light Text Design so I used the MFT Typewriter Text Background Stamp and some of the MFT Grout Gray Hybrid Ink to Stamp on the Entire Card Base!! I wanted this layer to be Distress/Imperfect too, so after Inking up the Stamp I took a Baby Wipe and removed some of the Ink!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the way it looks in real Life!! For a Finishing touch I added some Black Diamond ColoriQue Ink Splatters!!
SQUEAL!! It makes e SO HAPPY!!  =)
I took the Stitched Circle Die from the MFT Die-Namics Shaker Flower Die Set and created the Shaker Window in my Card Base!! Then I Die Cut the Circle Ring Die from some Gray MFT Itsy Bitsy Polka Dot Patterned Paper!! It matches the Color of the Grout Gray Hybrid Ink I used along with the Text from the Patterned Paper I used for the Shaker Window!! I wanted some BEAUTIFUL Felt Flowers so I Die Cut my FAVORITE Die-Namics Stitched Flowers Dies from several different shades of Felt!! I also Die Cut the Flower from the MFT Die-Namics Shaker Flower Die Set from some White Felt!! I wanted 3-D Flowers so I Die Cut Several Layers!! A Sequin and Donut Bead was Sewn into the Center of each of the Flowers!! I used the same Sequins and Donut Beads for the Center of the Shaker Window!! To Finish off the Card I Die Cut a Tag from the MFT Die-Namics Tag Builder Blueprint 6 Die Set and Stamped and Embossed a Sentiment from the MFT Warm & Fuzzy Friends Stamp Set!! I REALLY LOVE to create Interactive Cards and I CAN'T WAIT to give this one to Someone SPECIAL!!   =)

THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by today!! I hope I've INSPIRED you to think OUTSIDE of the Box when it comes to creating a Shaker Card!! Maybe some BEAUTIFUL 3-D Felt Flowers will make a Debut on your Next Interactive Creation!!??

Falling Leaves Stencil

Here's the FUN Foiled background I created using the Deco Foil Transfer Gel and several different Deco Foils with the NEW NND Falling Leaves Stencil!! I wanted to create more realistic Leaves so I decided to Cut up little pieces of the Foil and create a Pieced Foil look to my Background!!
 After running it through my Mink Machine this is how it looked!! BEAUTIFUL on it own, but I wanted some more texture and for it to look more like real leaves!!
 So I took some Fine Sand Paper and Sanded over top of the Leaves in tiny Circular motions!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the way it looks and will DEFINETLY be recreating this technique on other foiled Projects!!
