Today I wanted to share how I used contact to make my own specialty papers super cheaply. There is a cost breakdown at the end of the video below. I used many dies and stamps sets to make my cards so if you’re interested in cross brand card making this is the video for you!
For the first two cards I used two different Altenew sets for the sentiments and the die is from the Kaisercraft Rose stamp and die set used without stamping. Using a similar style I also made a card using the Tiger Lily Spellbinders D-Lite die. Last in this batch is a card using a Lifestyle Crafts die that I paired with some Gansai Tambi Starry Colours watercolor.
The next two cards use Kaisercraft dies again. The first is using the Circle Posy with a sentiment from the Inkadinkado Expressions set. My favourite card uses the Bouquet die with a sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Mom + Me set.
The next two cards have an ocean feel. One uses the mermaid from Kaisercraft and a spellbinders label die, the other uses a Fish from find it trading and sentiments from Kelly creates and Your Next stamp. Lastly I made a card with a balloon vellum background and sentiment dies from Crafti Potential.
I hope you enjoyed these cards using the DIY Specialty Paper, let me know your favourite below. I hope you’re creating your own arty crafty alchemy. Bye for now.
Today I am sharing with you a Rainbow Card using the July Hedgehog Hollow Sunny Studios Box. You can see my unboxing here and the first card I made with it here. I love the paper Sunny Studios gave us in this box! Pretty pretty rainbows 🙂
Starting with my usual Kmart card base and cut one panel on the long side with the stitched ric rac border die from the Sunny Studios Ric Rac Border Dies. Taking the ric rac die, I cut six different colours of the Rainbow Bright paper that came in the box. Then using the 6 pieces of ric rac to create a rainbow above where I die cut the card base and adhered them with Helmar glue.
I then took the Rainbow Text Die and cut it five times with black cardstock that had one side covered with Crafts 4 U double sided tape. Layering these up gives dimension. The sentiment is from the Over the Rainbow stamp set from the box and stamped with the Tim Holtz Stamp Platform with Archival Ink. With the stamped element in place I added the dimensional rainbow word.
Next I used a bunch of sequins to decorate the card. I used some I purchased from Ali Express and some from Darice. These were glued down with Lawn Fawndamentals glue. Finally for a little more shine I decided to add some Glossy Accents to the stacked rainbow word.
It was fun to create this Rainbow Card using The July Hedgehog Hollow Sunny Studios box. Be sure to check out my 250 Sub Party video so you don’t miss out! Hope you are creating your own arty crafty alchemy, bye for now.
