Advent Booklet Card

Sunday, November 28th, 2021

Hello Crafty Friends!

Chala here for today’s prompt word Advent!

I must admit this post is a sad one for me as it is my last post as a Scrap’N Stamp Design Team member.  I am going to miss being a part of this fabulous group of ladies and creating with them each month.  I also cannot thank you enough for all your comments and support over the last several years  You guys have been a huge inspiration to me!!  I am not leaving the crafting world, just taking a step back in the commitments I have made.

You will still be able to find me over on my YouTube Channel Crafting Through the Chaos of Life.  In fact, that is where this blog post will take you as my final Design Team submission is a bit of an involved one and easiest to watch on video than to describe.

Some of the items I will be using today are older sets and may not be available, so it gives us a good reason to reach into our stash, blow off the dust and reimagine them for a new use!  I will also be using several digital prints in today’s card booklet.

Stamp and Die sets used/recommended:

Lawn Fawn Lift the Flap

Lawn Fawn Tiny Gingerbread

Lawn Fawn Oh-Snap

Lawn Fawn Tiny Christmas

Lawn Fawn Holiday Helpers

Picket Fence Paper Glaze Golden Rose

Again, I encourage you to look through your stash for items you may already have that you can use!

Without further adieu….below is the video link for my fun Advent Card Booklet!  Enjoy!               https://youtu.be/FmuQpDQxyWU           

 

Much love,

Word Prompt Challenge for Fun

Thursday, October 28th, 2021

Hi creative friend! It’s Deb here, for the Design Team. Today I’m here for the word prompt challenge for “FUN”. Yes, it’s fun, but the word is actually ‘fun’!

BIRTHDAY WISHING

Now, everyone has different ideas of what is fun. It can be an activity, or reading your favourite book, maybe going to a movie. Or, just sitting with friends. I decided to turn fun into a verb, instead of an adjective – with this fun, interactive card!

Okay, so the front of the card doesn’t give too much away. The glitter cardstock and embellishments hint at something, though. To create the card front, simply die cut the MFT Birthday Wishes Die-Namics from green cardstock. Glue it onto a piece of Memory Box Glitter cardstock (the pack I have is retired, but there’s new packs in store!). Add some Memory Box Fairy Gemstones (Winter Fantasy), and then attach this panel to your card front.

CARD DETAILS

As I explained, I’ve hurt my back, so I had to figure out a card that would be fairly quick to make. The Photo Play Pop Up Card Kit is a life (or back) saver! This pack includes everything you need to create 6 pop up cards. All you need to add is your creativity, some paper and stamps.

Before following the simple directions to attach the pop up piece, add your coloured cardstock to the inside of the card base. On the left side, I stamped 2 sentiments from the Colorado Craft Company Birthday Wishing stamp set in a dark green ink. Next, stamp the balloon holding bunny from the same set in Nocturne ink, onto a piece of white cardstock. Use your favourite markers to colour him and the balloon – I used my Copic markers.

Now you can attach the pop up mechanism to the inside of the card. Next, attach a slightly larger piece of the same glitter paper, behind the bunny, and then attach both to the top of the pop up piece.  Stamp another sentiment onto white cardstock, trim, and attach it to the bottom right, below the bunny. The photo below shows how the pop up mechanism looks like, from above.
