Christmas on the 25th: Easy Patterned Paper Rainbows - Two Ideas!

Saturday, June 25, 2022

It's the 25th of the month so it's time for some Christmas inspiration! I wanted to create something super simple that can be made in bulk or multiples. So the perfect time to use a rainbow die and patterned paper! This die has 10 stripes so I used 5 different papers from my paper pack - they are double sided. The die fit perfectly on my 6x8 paper to cut out twice so I have stripes from both sides of the paper for 10 total.

In the video I share 2 different ways to attach them to a card base with a clean and simple embossed sentiment. They are great cards to sit and watch a show while you attach your stripes and you can get 10 cards out of this one idea! Watch the video down below to see them come together.

Non-Traditional Colors for an I Love You Card with Scrapbook.com

Friday, June 24, 2022

So I know that Peppermint is themed for Christmas, but I wanted to try and use it for a different holiday or occasion. I have the I Love You dies (coming soon!) and thought I'd try to make a non-traditional color for maybe a winter anniversary or even for Valentine's Day.

The background patterned paper is from the new Peppermint Patterned Collection and the pink and green cardstock die pieces are from the corresponding Smooth Cardstock pack. I also used the Hearts Pattern layered stencils with Distress Oxides to match the colors of the pack to create my heart background.

What do you think? Does it feel like a winter "love" card? Or is still too Christmas-y? I think it looks cute, especially with the white fox from the Spring Animals stamp set but definitely a different color combo for an I Love You card!

Go Wild! Radiant Rainbow Shaker Card with Heffy Doodle

Thursday, June 23, 2022

I really must have been in the mood for shaker cards for my design team projects this month, because I'm back today with my Heffy Doodle DT project and I created a shaker using dies and stencils! I love the Radiant Rainbow theme for the Heffy Doodlers challenge this month, so I created a rainbow frame from the Go Wild die set and just love how vibrant it turned out. The sentiment is from the same die set and there is a subtle stencil background inside the shaker. Check out my video down below to see it come together!

Underwater Birthday Card with Avery Elle

Wednesday, June 22, 2022

I really like how my card turned out with this week's Craft Roulette parameters. The four parameters were [1] card with ribbon; [2] neutral background + 2 colors; [3] water; and [4] inked edge. I used ribbon under my sentiment strip, which also has the inked edge, and my background is Kraft with white embossing powder. The two colors I chose were pink and teal with an overall underwater theme!

For this card, I did an Instagram "Swipetorial" so you can see each step with some details over on my Instagram - just click the image down below.

Did you participate this week? What did you think of the parameters?

You Had Me at Meow Shaker Card with Time for Tea Designs

Tuesday, June 21, 2022

Today's card is my latest design team project with Time for Tea Designs! I hope you caught my video on their channel already; if not, it's posted up on mine today. I shared how I created my paw print background that gives a 3D effect, coloring in the orange cat and how I used a gorgeous Sparkle Blend to create the shaker card through the large sentiment die.

If shaker cards are not your thing, you can adapt this into a normal card, just glue the background down the card base instead of popping up and adding sequins inside. I really like how easy shaker cards can be when I use a large sentiment die. What do you think? Do you like seeing sequins through the sentiment?
