I can’t seem to resist the Doodlebug Designs Doodle-Pops stickers, I snag them as soon as they arrive in the shop. They’re so cute, the price is great, and they are so darn cute!
DId I say that already?
I created a set of cards for today using 2 Doodle-Pops from the Kitten Smitten collection (Stormy & BItty Kittens) and various 6×6 papers from my stash.
Let’s take a closer look; for this first card, I created a 3″x4″ card for a little scene.
I think the kitty looks like it’s sitting on the floor in a living room somewhere, floral wall paper and all. The scene was easily created with pattern papers and I used my typewriter for the sentiment. I found some pink striped paper for the card front and adhered that and the 3″x4″ card to a standard A2 card base, which is 4.25″ x 5.5″.
Card #2 a happy birthday kitty card uses the other kitty on the Bitty Kitties sticker sheet.
I fussy cut a tiny party hat and present from some birthday themed paper to add a little something to this card. I used another white A2 card base and adhered the numbers paper to the front and added a doodle border with a black pen, I then cut a circle from some coordinating paper to highlight the bitty kitty as it was getting lost on the colourful background, and again I used my typewriter for the punny sentiment. As a last little embellishment, I added some epoxy shape stickers.
Card # 3 I think is my favourite. Grey, pink and white is such a classic colour combo.
I die-cut a Stitched Nested Square using the Studio Katia die and added a bit of the grey paper to the bottom to look like the kitty is sitting on some carpet. I used the same paper for some thin strips at the top and bottom of the card front (1/4″ strips) and the Hello paper was cut to
3 3/4″ and adhered on top. The sentiment on this card is from a My Favourite things stamp set called Cat-itude
I hope you enjoyed seeing this sweet little card set, thank you for stopping by the SN blog.
Today’s share is all about foiling mixed with some product information. If you’ve followed us for a while, you’ll know the Nerds love Deco Foil. 😀
Thermoweb released a new product call Transfer Gel and it recently hit our shelves and my crafting desk, I’ve created a video and a few cards to share how the Transfer Gel works and you can see a list of my supplies at the bottom of this post.
Here’s a closer look at the cards I created.
If you have any questions about the Deco Foil Transfer Gel or the projects created, please comment on this post and we will be happy to help.
Hello SN friends,
I’ve got some masculine inspiration for you today using some Therm-o-web Deco Foil.
I die-cut the start from some Toner Paper so I could add foil to the top using a laminator machine.
The stars were cut again out of some black cardstock so I could use the leftover/negative piece leftover. I stamped the panel with a background stamp before backing it with blue cardstock. I glued the foiled stars back into their spots and then glue the sentiment in the bottom right.
The foiled stars are not perfectly covered in foil, I like that somewhat distressed look.
I hope this inspired to a little today, thank you for stopping by the SN blog.
If you have any questions please let me know in your comment.
Hello Nerdy friends!
I hope you all are doing well, and getting ready to enjoy the upcoming holidays.
Trust me December is a month full of celebrations in our household, not only do we have Christmas, and New Year’s, but also four birthdays in between. With all the time being used on preparation for the holidays, I sometimes leave the birthday cards to the last minute. So i thought I will share with you a quick card that i made last week for my soccer-niece.
My favorite thing to use (when making quick cards) is my Silhouette cameo. For this card, i used one of the Silhouette files to create the cut out of this 5×5 in card on Grapefruit color card stock.
While the machine was cutting the image, I pulled glitter paper from my stash and cut a 5×5 in square. I also cut some smooth white card stock to create the base of the card ( I made sure the card front could fit to the 5×5 in cut out.
I lined up the two pieces of paper, and punched two parallel holes along the upper side of the square. Then using foam dots, I attached the cut-out to the glitter paper ( i like the cut out shadow that this space creates on the glitter paper).
A small piece of ribbon, about 10-12 in, was thread through the holes punched on the card front, and tied to create a bow at the top of the card.
Before finishing the card, I used my We R Memory keepers envelope and bow puncher to create a envelope for the card.
After making sure the card fit in the envelope, I simply glued a small wood veneer word (this serves as my card’s sentiment) onto the bottom corner of the card front. Here is the finished card:
The process of creating this card took very little time, and I love the simplicity of the card. My little niece loved the card, too. So if you are pressed for time, using a die cutting machine can help you create cards in no time.
As always let me know if you have any questions about how this came together.
