I found the Mermaid

I just love playing with Bronwyn Eastley’s tutorials for 3d cards!  This week I am using the Magical Day Double Z Fold Card.  You can check out Bronwyn’s tutorial, here.

Addinktive Design team button - December 2017I love the Myths and Magic Specialty DSP.  Every page is sparkly!  It’s also slightly thicker card stock so it’s good for a 3d card as it’s nice and sturdy.

My niece is turning 18 shortly so I thought this would be a great card for her.  I went with the Mermaid page of the DSP and fussy cut them out.  I also did a few of the shells and seahorses.

I used the SAB Celebrate You thinlits for the sentiment and layered it with Melon Mambo and Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper.

I used the Petals and More thinlits to create the seaweed.  I also cut a couple of the flowers from the Eclectic Layers thinlits to create the look of coral.

If you would like to purchase the tutorial to create this card, make sure you check out Bronwyn’s store here.

Don’t forget you can earn the Celebrate You thinlits for free when you place an order on my online store.

Happy Stamping!

Kitty Slider card

I’m back with another tutorial from Bronwyn Eastley, addINKtive Designs.

This week, I decided to use the This Little Piggy Slider card tutorial, which you can purchase here.

This is such a cute card but I don’t have the Piggy stamp set.  I know it’s cute, but I don’t really need it!  So I had a browse through my stamp sets and I went with the Pretty Kitty stamp set to keep in with the animal theme.  I love all the kitties in this set but I just kept it to two.

To create the grass, I stamped my piece of cardstock in Pear Pizzazz using the Watercolor Wash stamp set to create some texture.  I also punched the ticket tear border punch across the top.  I wanted to put some texture across the back piece so I cut out the laurel from the Lovely Laurel thinlits.  I just trimmed them down to fit the card.

Then the fun part of stamping the kitties and colouring them in.  I coloured the bodies and the pot with my aqua painter but I did the flowers and cheeks with markers just to make the colours stand out a bit more.   Then the extra fun part of fussy cutting was next!!  You know how much I love doing that!!! Yeah, no.

I used the Birthday banner stamp set and the matching Bunch of banner framelits for the sentiment and I added some more flowers from the Lovely Friends stamp set and the matching Lovely Laurel thinlits.

Of course, then the sky needed some clouds, and I knew I had a set with some.  I found the Lift Me Up stamp set had the perfect clouds so a quick stamp in Soft Sky and it’s all done.

The kitties do move across the card although the flower in the middle (which is to hide the join in the flowers) stops them going the whole way across.

This was a fun card to make and Bronwyn’s instructions make it so easy!!  Thanks, Bron!
