final card

What a beautiful card that could be used for a wedding, an anniversary, or just a special greeting. You can add your own sentiment or leave it as is. I love how the neutral colors coordinate together. Three different papers were used to make this card.

Thank you in advance for supporting this site with its use.

The papers used were Stardream Metallic in Quartz for the card. Stardream is my favorite cardstock because it has a shimmer to the surface. Cut the floral element from MirriSparkle Glitter in Gold, and the vellum insert from Curious Translucent in Clear.

cricut

I cut the file on a Cricut Maker. As a reminder, set the red lines to score and load your scoring tool before setting the file to cut. Similar weight cardstocks can be cut at the same time. Set your machine to 100lb cardstock for the Stardream and the Gold Glitter and run the cut twice. Just push the go button again without removing your mat.

parts

The cut file has three parts to glue together. Any adhesive will work, I am using Reptile Craft Adhesive. I’ve placed it into a smaller bottle (as seen in the photo above). You can purchase the pearl gems at the Dollar Tree.

Card Making

Follow along the creative process for making a card, staring without a plan.

and the Creative Process

I began making this card without a plan. I take you through the entire creative process from start to finish using minimal materials. The process begins with ink smooching to make a background for the card. And from there, choose colors that coordinate.

For the sentiment, I used a word from the Word Art file located in the store. You can access that file here: https://tryit-likeit.com/product/word-art/

The sentiment is raised using foam tape and the bloom is tucked into the top. You also get a sense of the glitter splats from the Unicorn Spit paint.

Video Tutorial:

The image above shows the finished card and a peek to the inside. I like to take elements from the front of the card and carry them into the inside. You can also see the slight 3D effect of the bloom on the front of the card.

Make Your Own Foiled Embellishments

Did you know you can make your own foiled embellishment dots?

with ScraPerfect

You might already know that the Best Glue Ever makes great dots of glue. Did you know you can use them to make them into foiled embellishments? It takes only one step and you have a variety of different colored foiled dots at the ready.

You can make a variety of different size dots. I made mine on recycled packaging but any non-stick surface will work. Let them dry overnight or until they appear clear.

Those same dots from above are now dry and can be used with foil. You can foil them ahead of time or as you use them.

transfer foils

ScraPerfect has great sets of transfer foils but any foil will work. If you keep your used scraps of foil this is a great way to use up those leftovers.

Video Tutorial:

A close-up of the dots shows the 3D quality of the foiled dots. Now you can make your own and coordinate the colors you need for crafting.

Making a Get-Well Card

Making a get-well card with Fairy Stamper stamp and stencil.

with Fairy Stamper

finished card

As a part of the Fairy Stamper’s Video Design Team, I have a new card tutorial for making a get-well greeting card. I could probably send this to myself as I am getting over a cold that lasted a long 2.5 weeks where I lost my voice. So I have a lot of catching up to do. Thankfully, no Covid, I was tested twice!

materials

Materials:

  • stencil
  • cardstock – blue, green, white
  • blending brush
  • Distress Oxide
  • Pixie spray
  • stamps
  • Works Board
  • white embossing powder
  • DIY shimmer spray
  • adhesive
  • heat gun
  • Rinea Foiled Paper – die-cut sentiment

I wanted to try something different with my stamping in that we typically stamp in black and I wanted to use white. I wasn’t sure about stamping a fairy in white so I chose to work with the florals. I also wanted to use a stencil to texturize the background and I really like how that turned out.

Video Tutorial:

The close-up image above caught the DIY shimmer mist really well on the card. If you would like to learn how I made it, you can follow this link. [shimmer mist]

Ways to Stamp Texture

Learn fun stamping techniques with Fairy Stamper stamps.

with Fairy Stamper

I enjoy creating my own textured papers using a variety of different techniques. For my Fairy Stampers Video Design post this month, I used a bulrushes stamp in different ways to create the background paper for my card. Another Fairy Stampers stamp was used for the sentiment. This was a fun card to make.

The card came together in a two-step process. The first was creating the background, and the second was creating the sentiment strip.

stamping  sentiment

After embossing the cardstock, the sentiment was stamped on top. Since the embossed cardstock has texture, the stamp needed to be applied more than once.

Once the parts of the card were made, it was time to put it all together. A tape runner and foam tape were used.

Here is a close-up shot of the card so you can see the texture and misting spray as well as the raised sentiment. You can really see how the colors work together in this image.

Making a Card with Mica Powder

Make a mini mica card using up materials you have on hand.

I like making cards that are alternative sizes. This is a good technique for using up scraps and materials you already have on hand. I am using a lot of materials to make this simple card but you don’t have to have them all to make a similar card. Follow along with the video tutorial to see how this simple card is done.

Materials:

  • cardstock
  • stamp
  • stamp block
  • Versamark ink pad
  • Mica power
  • Label maker
  • alcohol ink marker
  • Washi chomper
  • Glue Dots

Video Tutorial:

Here is a close-up of the finished mini card. The mica powder really shines in person. I like how the colors are enhanced by the black cardstock.

Let me know what you make cards in a variety of different sizes. I think mini or small are my favorite.
