Light Up Gingerbread House

ACS_0121

Hi Everyone! I am here on my blog today with my very first holiday card of the year featuring Waffle Flowers Cookie Time stamp set and the Pop Up House Die. Since gingerbread cookies always remind me of Christmas I wanted to create a card featuring this theme by making the Pop Up House into a gingerbread house that lights up when you open the card.

ACS_0122 There is already a wonderful youtube tutorial from Waffle Flower on how the Pop-Up House is assembled (link over here) and my tutorial here will focus on how to incorporate the Chibitronic LED lights to my card.

Heartcraft Paper – Day of the Dead Guest Post

Hi Everyone and happy a week before Halloween!!! Halloween to me have always been a perfect kickoff to the winter holidays and every year my sisters and I go treat or treating with the nieces and nephew. When I first laid my eyes on the Day of the Dead digital stamp from Heartcraft Paper my jaw dropped. I have never ever seen this stamps for this  event before and I know its just perfect for a Halloween card.

Light Up Autumn Moon Card

Hi Everyone and Happy Mid Autumn Festival to all who celebrates. This festival is one of my favorite Chinese holiday and for me its all about the moon. To celebrate I used the new Hero Arts Autumn Moon stamp set to create an interactive card using Chibitronics LED light sticker with a raising moon in the background. (This card was done last last night and I didn’t get a chance to write the instructions this this morning right before work, so please excuse my bad grammar).

Heartcraft Paper Guest Designer – Day 2

IMG_6945

Hi Everyone. I am here today with my 2nd guest post for Heartcraft Paper and when I first laid my eyes on their Bomb Pop digital stamp I just knew I have to use it. Growing up I used to eat bomb pops every summer and just the image of them takes me back to my childhood. What better way to use this image then to create a spinning card that children of all ages can play with. Digital stamps worked beautifully with my card design since I was able to adjust the size of the image to be smaller than the sentiment.

To make this card I first copy the Bomb Pop image onto a Word document 6 time and size them to be slightly larger than 2 inches tall and print them out onto white card stock. I also print out the sentiment at the same time. Color all the images using blue and red copic markers to give them the traditional hue and cut them out. Used a circle die to cut out my spinner circle and used my pencil to draw in 6 sections. For my card base, I cut out my front panel from white cardstock at 6 x 6 inches and draw in a border with a black pen and then use a blue copic marker to scratter dots around the middle of the front panel. Last, create a hole in the middle of my panel for my brad.

Glue down the ends of each Bomb Pop onto my spinner circle and add the brad to connect my spinner to my front panel. I added some powder to the brad so the Bomb Pop will spin smoother. Then I cut out the sentiment using a label die cut.

Adhere my middle strip of cardstock to the middle of my card using double layers of foam tape so it will not lay on top of the spinner and last glue down my sentiment on top of the strip to hid the center of the spinner.

I hope you enjoy this card and I can’t wait to show you my next card for Heartcraft Paper.

Heartcraft Paper – Guest Desinger

IMG_6899

Hi Everyone! Tiffany here and I am super excited to be the Sept 2018 guest designer for HeartcraftPaper. HeartcraftPaper is a digital stamp company and this was my very first time using this type of stamp and I find it to be quite easy to use. With the digital file I was able to size my image to any size I need to fit the scene on my card and I can even flip it if needed. The best part is that I didn’t need any special program to use the digital stamp, just copy and paste my image into a Word document and change the image size to fit my card base.
