Trio of cards, featuring Spellbinders Hello Summer Starry Night project kit

Hello crafty friends!  I am so excited to be returning with another guest post on the Spellbinders blog today!  Today, I’m working with the Hello Summer Starry Night project kit, as well as a few other products from Spellbinders.  The kit is packed with lots of great products to make cards for all occasions.  They are gender neutral as well, so you could make cards for anyone using the kit.  When I saw the items for the kit, I knew I had to make an ocean themed card, a galaxy card, and a shaker card.  I will be showing you lots of photos and will have supplies listed and linked down below, but for more details, and info, head over to the Spellbinders blog!

3 more cards featuring the Hip Kit Club May 2019 kits

Hello crafty friends!  Today I have 3 more cards to share with you using the May 2019 Hip Kit Club kits.  I was challenged to use cut files, so I am using a cut file on each of my cards.  You can check out all the cut files on the Hip Kit Club website!

For the first card, I made a 5×7 sized balloon shaker card.

ahsang HKC 3cards cutfiles 3

I used the Balloon subscriber cutfile for the shaker element.  I isolated one of the solid balloons, blew it up until the ballon was about 3 1/2 in wide, and created an internal offset so I would have a frame.  I cut it out of white cardstock.  I also cut out the solid balloon without the offset for the back of my shaker.  I did a little ink blending with Distress Oxide ink in Picked Raspberry, which was from an older color kit, to create an ombre pink to white on the solid balloon.  I used a Crate Paper clear sticker for the sentiment on the inside of the shaker.  After adhering clear acetate to the balloon frame, and carefully adding foam tape to the balloon tape, I used the gorgeous sequins from the kits and attached it to the solid balloon.  I also used a CP tassel and the gold string that was on the packaging for the tassels on the balloon.  For the background, I used a Crate Paper pattern paper, some ink splatters using the Lindy’s Starburst Spray in TiffanyLou Blue and Cotton Candy Pink (from the March 2019 color kit), some hashtag words that I cut from the Dear Lizzy pattern paper, and some more sequins.  I made the card base from the yellow cardstock in the cardstock kit.
For my next card, I used the Balloon cutfile again, but I used the entire cluster this time.

I cut each balloon from the Paige Evans Horizon pattern paper.  (Each balloon is about an inch or so wide.)  I used foam tape to pop up some of the balloons, and I used twine for the balloon strings.  Then to ground the balloons, I used one of the CP chipboard stickers…it’s the hand that supposed to be making the OK symbol, but I turned it on it’s side to make it look like it’s holding the strings.  I can’t decide yet if that was genius or if it just looks plain weird, lol!!!  I used the Crate Paper rainbow pattern paper for the background, some more of the Lindy’s sprays, and some more of the sequins.  The sentiment is from the HKC exclusive ephemera pack.  I also hand drew a couple of stars on the pattern paper.  I made the A2 sized card base from the blue paper from the cardstock kit.

 

For my 3rd card, I kept it pretty simple.

I die cut the “You Rock” sentiment twice from the Freebie Titles cut file on white cardstock.  I sprayed one of the titles with the Lindy’s Cotton Candy Pink spray and with an older Shimmerz spray in Ruby to create a darker pink.  I glued them together a little off set to create a shadowed effect.  I also die cut a couple of big hearts, one is a Pinkfresh Studio pattern paper and the other is one that I made by using the same Lindy’s starburst sprays.  I attached it to the Dear Lizzy hashtag pattern paper, and glued the sentiment on top with thin slivers of foam tape.  I made the pink A2 sized cardbase from the pink cardstock in the cardstock kit.
I hope you like the way my cards turned out!

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.

ahsang sb AprGOTM 1

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!

ahsang sb AprGOTM 2

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.

ahsang sb AprGOTM 4

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.

ahsang sb AprGOTM 5

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.

ahsang HKC febcards 3

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.

ahsang HKC febcards 5

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.
