Zoo Globe Shadow Box Card

Last night, I watched a Jennifer McGuire video on making Shadow Box Cards, and I was dying to try it out! Her instructions were incredibly clear and easy to follow. I just made notes and created my own tutorial to try to follow later. I wanted to keep it simple on the front so the inside of the card would be a knockout! I absolutely love the animals in the Zoo Globe Stamp set, and they were perfect for this card.

Here is the color palette used for this card

For this card, I started with a Whisper White base and added a circle layer of Misty Moonlight using the Layering Circles Dies. I stamped the elephant and bird in Memento Tuxedo Black and then colored them with my Watercolor Pencils and finished them off with my Water Painters. I fussy cut the bird and attached it to the elephant’s back.

I stamped the sentiments from the Free As A Bird Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black on the inside and outside of the card.

Now here is where it got fiddly! I fussy cut everything because there are no does for the stamp set. I am not a fan of fussy cutting, but it was worth it! You can’t tell from the photo, but there are multiple layers which are apparent with the movement of the card.

I take terrible videos (sorry), but I wanted you to see how the card opens up. I love this concept so much and am going to have another go when I get time to get up in the Hen House again! The best part is that it folds nice and flat to go in an envelope!

Always Remember Double Point Card

I spent my lunch hour up in my craft studio, otherwise known as The Hen House, and I wanted to try another Fun Fold Card. I had seen the Double Point Card on Pinterest and wanted to give it a go. Lynn Dunn (www.stamptasticdesigns.com) has a fantastic tutorial. Thank you, Lynn!

Here is the color palette used for this card

For this card, I started with a Basic Black base and added a layer of Whisper White. My Double Points are from the Plaid Tidings 6×6 DSP, which I love, love, love!

I die cut two of the labels, one in black, one in white, with the Stitched So Sweetly dies and stamped my sentiment on the white layer using Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black.

For the embellishment, I used the Poppy Moments Dies and cut the large flower base from Poppy Parade, and the outline from Basic Black. I cut the leaf base from Pear Pizzaz and the outline from Mossy Meadow.

For the inside panel, I stamped the sentiment and the flower image in Tuxedo Black and watercolored the flower in Poppy Parade using my ink pad and Water Painters. I keep wanting to type Aqua Painters… that is going to take some getting used to.

There is nothing perfect about this card. My points don’t line up perfectly, Inhad to do some manual trimming to clean up lines, and my image on the inside of the card is a little too dark, but all in all, I am really happy with it! I wanted to see how difficult this style of card was to make, and I completed it, start to finish, in less than an hour, with no pre-planning,

Joy Fold Thank You Card

I just love Fun Fold Card and had come across a tutorial posted by Vickie Lou Designs. I decided to try my hand at it, and came up with an amazing Thank You card!

Here is the color palette used for this card

I used Misty Moonlight for the card base and Bumblebee for the inner card base. I used the Flowers for Every Season DSP and the Bloom and Grow stamps/Budding Blooms dies for the image. I used my watercolor pencils and Water Painters to color the stamped images and then die cut them and layered them to the front tab.

I stamped my sentiments in Misty Moonlight and added a few flower clusters in Bumblebee after stamping off.
