2 cards, featuring Spellbinders April 2019 Glimmer of the Month kit

Hey friends!  I recently received the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil machine, so today I’m sharing 2 cards that I made using the machine, along with the April 2019 Glimmer of the Month kit.

I created a quick process video on how to use the Glimmer Foil machine, and I show you what I created with the April GOTM kit.

 

Here is the plates that you will receive along with a roll of Matte Silver Foil:

Plates

For my first card, I used all the plates (letters) to create a background image on pink cardstock, along with the rose gold foil.  Since I had so many plates on the platform at one time, the foiling didn’t come out perfectly, but I love how distressed it looks!

I die cut the Flutter Wing Butterfly die out of pink cardstock. (I die cut the body 3 times and glued them on top of each other to create a dimensional look.)  I also heat foiled the “Hello Friend” from the Everyday Sentiments II with the rose gold foil and black cardstock.

I cut a piece of Heidi Swapp “Paint the Town” pattern paper, and adhered it onto a white card base.  Then I added the foiled background piece with foam tape.  I adhered the butterfly with a thin sliver of foam tape under the body, and then I added the sentiment with foam tape as well.

For the second card, I decided to make a shaker element.

First, on a piece of white cardstock, I ink blended 3 Distress Oxide inks together.  I used Abandoned Coral, Picked Raspberry, and Spun Sugar.  I sprinkled the ink-blended background with water, and dabbed it up with a paper towel to create a bleached effect.  I spelled out the word “love,” but left out the space for the O, and used the Prism hot foil.  I then die cut a small heart where the O should be.  I created a shaker element using clear acetate, foam tape, and tiny heart sequins.  I adhered the entire panel only a white card base with foam tape.  I added the “It’s Your Day” sentiment from the Everyday Sentiments II, along with the Prism hot foil and black cardstock.

I have to admit that I forgot to use the Matte Silver foil on my cards, as I was just too excited to play with the glimmer foil system.  However, I do use a piece of it in the video when I was demonstrating how to use the Glimmer machine.

I really hope you like my cards, and you found my video helpful.

Happy Sunday!

4 cards featuring Hip Kit Club

Hello friends!  Today I’m sharing 4 handmade cards that I made using the February 2019 Hip Kits.  I used bits and pieces from all the kits: Main kit, Embellishment kit, Project Life kit, Color kit, & cardstock kit.  I love making handmade cards, so I was especially excited to dig into these kits.  There are so many goodies here that are perfect for both scrapbooking and card making.

I made all the card bases using the cardstock from the kit.  I made them A2 sized, so folded, they measure 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″.

For my first card, I made a XOXO shaker card.

I used one of the February subscriber cut files called candy hearts, and I cut it from white cardstock.  I used the Prima opal magic paints from the color kits to color the jar and hearts.  I used some sequins (from a past kit), acetate, and foam tape to make my shaker.  I backed it with one of the pattern papers from theMain kit.  To embellish the front of the card, I used a Crate Paper shaker heart, a wood flair button and enamel dots from Pinkfresh Studio.

For my next card, I made a happy card that works for any occasion.

I used the cut apart pattern paper from Carta Bella for the background floral piece, as well as the flower pot sentiment piece, which I cut into a tag.  I embellished it with Pinkfresh Studio flowers and a Carta Bella brad.  This card was the easiest and fasted to make, but I might love it the most because of those gorgeous painted flowers!

For my third card, I made a Valentines card.

I used a February freebie cut file called Hearts Background 2, and I cut it from white cardstock.  I adhered the cut file with foam squares to one of the pattern papers in the kit.  I added the Crate Paper stickers, the Valentine’s heart and the So Sweet banner, as well as the wreath and enamel dots from Pinkfresh Studio.

For my last card, I made a card that would be perfect to send encouragement.

I used one of the exclusive PL cards, and I die cut a large circle.  I adhered it with foam tape to add dimension.  For the main focus, I used this cute truck chipboard sticker from Carta Bella.  I added some florals and banners from Pinkfresh Studio, as well as some brads from Carta Bella.  To finish off the card, I added some Prima opal magic paint splatters.

I love how my cards turned out, and I really hope you like my cards as well.  Don’t forget to check out the awesome February kits, as well as the free cut files!

Pinkfresh Studio Holiday Cards blog hop, Day 2

HolidayCardsBlogHop-BlogTop

Hello friends and welcome to Day 2 of the Pinkfresh Studio holiday cards blog hop.  You should be coming from Flóra Farkas’ blog, and after me, is Laura Bassen’s blog.  You can always go back to the Pinkfresh Studio blog if you get lost along the way.  More details on the hop and giveaways will be outlined below.

Today, I created 2 holiday cards using the Home for the Holidays stamp set and the Cityscape die.  I really love this little set, because there is another coordinating stamp set that you can use with the die that isn’t holiday related, and it’s called A Day in the City.

Here are my 2 cards:

1024jungahsang_110218_01

For my cards, I used a variety of techniques: copic coloring, ink blending, heat embossing, and shaker card.

For both of my cards, I first die cut the Cityscape panel from Neenah white cardstock.  Then I stamped the buildings and tree.  I also stamped the buildings again on a separate piece of white cardstock because I knew I wanted to Color them, fussy cut them out, and then add them to the the panels with foam tape.  I colored the trees on the card panel itself, so I would have a bit of dimension.  Next I heat embossed the banner and the sentiment, and a few snowflakes.  I also added some white paint splatter to my background and my buildings for a falling snow effect.

1024jungahsang_110218_06

For the first card, I wanted to make a shaker card, and use a more modern holiday color palette.  I’ve seen this color combo in holiday decor in the last couple of years, and I been loving it!  I chose an early morning background sky color scheme with pinks purples and blues to go with my buildings, and I also thought that silver embossing powder would go perfectly!

1024jungahsang_110218_05

For my 2nd card, I went with a more traditional color palette, using red, green, and blue. I also decided to go for gold embossing powder, and I added a couple more snowflakes since I wasn’t making a shaker card.

I trimmed the city scape panels a little bit and added them to white card bases.

I love love love how my cards turned out, and I hope you do to.  You can find all the holiday collection on the Pinkfresh Studio website.

Cheers shaker card featuring Mint Owl Studio

Hey guys!  Today I have a St. Patty’s themed shaker card for you using Mint Owl Studio’s new scripty sentiments stamp set!  You can find my card on the Mint Owl Studio blog as well!

ahsang MOS cheers 2

In the spirit of St Patrick’s day, I chose green and gold colors, cocktail glasses, and the cheers sentiment.

Here’s how I created my card:

  1. I gold heat embossed the sentiment and the cocktail glasses from the Mint Owl Studio scripty sentiments stamp set on a piece of white cardstock using Versamark ink and Ranger princess gold embossing powder.
  2. Then, I ink blended the panel using Tim Holtz distress ink in lucky clover.  I sprinkled the panel with a little bit of water.  Using a paper towel, I gently picked up some of the ink, creating a bleached effect.
  3. I  die cut a frame out of green glitter paper by DCWV using Simon Says Stamp stitched rectangle dies.
  4. I added acetate to the glitter frame, and 2 layers of foam tape.
  5. I put the shaker card together using Mint Owl Studio 6mm gold sequins and the Mint Owl sequin mix.  I also added in some of Martha Stewart’s green star glitter.
  6. I glued the entire shaker panel to a top folding card base.
  7. To create a simple matching envelope, I stamped 2 cocktail glasses using Hero Arts Ombre ink in mint to green.

Some bunny loves you shaker card featuring Mint Owl Studio

Hey guys!  I’m here with a shaker card today featuring the Some Bunny stamp set from Mint Owl studio.  You will find my card on the Mint Owl Studio blog as well!

ahsang MOS bunny love 1

First, I stamped the hugging bunnies and tiny bow from the MOS Some Bunny stamp set with Memento tuxedo black ink on some cardstock.  I colored my images with copic markers.  I used both warm and cool gray makers, with a little hint of pink.  Then, I fussy cut them out.  I glued the bow to the Mama bunny, and added glossy accents on top.  I set aside to dry.

Meanwhile, I inked up my card base (just in the middle) with some Tim Holtz scattered straw distress ink, creating a moon.  On a separate piece of watercolor paper, I die cut a rectangle using Simon Say’s Stamps stitched rectangle die.  I also partially die cut a circle using a Mama Elephant die.  (My first try at partial die cutting!)  Then I hand cut 2 pieces of sticky notes into a hill to act as a template to cut the rest of the partial die cut circle, and then as a mask for my background.  With my mask in place, I stamped a starry sky using stars from the MOS I Moose You stamp set, Versamark ink, and heat embossed using Ranger’s silver embossing powder.  On top, I used my Tim Holtz distress inks in blueprint sketch and chipped sapphire to ink blend a night sky.  I gave the sky a quick spritz with my water bottle, and then pat with a paper towel to get the ink to react with the water leaving bleached spots.  I took the other side of the sticky notes that I had cut to then mask off the sky (once dry) to ink blend my green hill, and heat emboss a sentiment.  I used the “some bunny loves you” sentiment and heat set using the same ink and silver embossing powder.  Then, I used Tim Holtz distress inks in lucky clover and mowed lawn right on top.

I glued on a piece of acetate to the back of my sky/hill panel over the partially die cut circle.  I added a double layer of foam tape, making sure there was no gaps around the circle.  For my sequin mix, I used MOS’s snowflake sequin mix and some Martha Stewart tiny stars.  I placed those sequins over the yellow ink blended area on the card base, keeping the sequins piled up in the middle.  I carefully placed my sky/hill panel on top, keeping an eye on both the spacing and the sequins.  To finish my shaker card, I added the bunnies on top with glue dots.
