A Teenie Weenie Hug!

 


Hi everyone! I made this card today as a special request for a friend of mine who loves Doxie's. After I told her I had joined the Ai Design Team, she sent back a photo of the Dog Twist Tie set from the store and asked me to make her that. I was not going to disappoint her so here it is!

The truth is she really didn't need to "twist" my arm to make this card. The Twist Tie line is so much fun. Before I made the card, I did a little research on YouTube looking for any tips I could find. I did pick up a few but I wanted to line the inside flaps with patterned paper to cover up the Copic ink that would seep through. I couldn't find instructions on that so I decided to make a video with the method I used and also how to line up the stamps and dies for the best results. You can click on the video below.


I colored the dogs and the scene with Copic colors:
E39, E37, E35, E33, E31
C9, C7, C5, C3, C1
G28, G20, YG63, YG25
R37, RV32



If you have a Twist-Tie stamp set, take it out and give it a try again. If you were always intrigued but didn't give it a try, visit the store and the many different Twist-Tie themes available. 

Happy Creating!

Simon Says Stamp March Card Kit - Watercolor and Glitter Glam!

  


Hi everyone! Today I'm posting for CutCardStock. This month the focus is on glitter card stock and boy does CutCardStock have a great selection of it! I've used two colors on this card to set off the stamped and watercolored image from the March Simon Says Stamp March Card Kit. 

I love shaped cards and for this one I used a pretty die from Heartfelt Creations called Elegant Swirl Gateway. It has an elaborate center die but I filled that area with the watercolor panel instead. 

I used several CutCardStock products on this card. The card base was made with Neenah Classic Crest Solar White and I glued another layer of Silk Glitter Opulant Opal on the top which creates the glowing background. I used Classic Linen Gold Pearl Cardstock for the lacy border cut and Silk Glitter Red Flash for the pop of color that sets off the reds used in the watercolor panel.

A full video tutorial can be found by clicking on the link below. 

 
I hope you have a great weekend! I'll be back soon with another project for you.

Happy Creating!
