Handmade Tree Tire Swing Card

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I made two different tree cards today. For the first tree card, I used the give a hoot cartridge. The tree proportion were kind of an accident. I forget to turn the fit length off and ended up with a huge tree and an even bigger branch.  I liked the way it turned out, so I ended up using the tree anyways. To get a similar look, I would suggest cutting the tree at 5 3/4 inches and the branch at 6 1/4 inches. After assembling my tree, I adhered it to my A2 Kraft card base with some of the tree hanging off. Then I trimmed off the excess paper. I cut the circle outline for the tire swing from Plantin schoolbook at 1 1/2 inches. I cut 4 circles and glued them together to get a thicker tire. Then a used my gray gel pen to make tire treads. Before attaching the tire, I stamped and embossed my sentiment with white embossing powder.  To finish the tire swing, I used some hemp as a rope and used a silver brad to attach the tire swing. To complete the card, I corner round the edges and did a little doodling on inside.

For my second tree card, I cut a circle from Birthday Bash using real dial size at 3 inches in kraft cardstock and a scallop circle in 3 3/4 inches. I have cut the scallop and circle from the Birthday Bash cartridge so many times, I don’t even need to look at the book to remember the buttons. I stamped a Martha Stewart Tree Stamp with green pigment ink on my circle. Then I sprinkled clear embossing powder, and used my heat tool. I think the tree turned out beautiful. I adhered the tree circle to my scallop circle and tied some brown ribbon around my card base. Then I used ATG to adhere the circle. I then used my antique gold embossing powder to emboss my sentiment. For the finishing touch, I tied a bow with the ribbon. I hope everyone enjoys these two tree cards.

To make this cute card, I started with a Kraft A2 card base. I used clear embossing powder to emboss butterflies on a 1 1/2 x 5 inch piece of purple patterned paper. The clear butterflies add a subtle interest to the card. Afterwards I adhered the strip with my ATG, and tied some hemp around the card and secured it with a wooden button. I cut two a layer butterfly from the Give a Hoot cartridge at 3 inches. I adhered the butterfly with one pop dot. Scrapes of patterned paper were used to punch out daisies. I adhered the daises with a dot of glue in middle of each flower. I made a wavy pattern with the flowers.  Then I added two brads to the centers of two daises. Then I added my sentiment with white embossing powder and corner rounded the edges. Enjoy this pretty card.

My little brother just got a job, and I wanted to make him a congratulations card he would actually like. He loves Stars Wars, but I don’t have any Stars Wars scrapbooking supplies. So I came up with a way to make a Wookie. I made a video to show how to make your very own wookie card for the Star Wars fan in your life.

Fox Card

Handmade Fox Card

I love foxes. I think they are so stinking cute. I think my dog Franklin kind of looks like a fox. I haven’t made a fox card earlier, because I didn’t have the right color orange. I couple weeks back, I bought some Bazzill Orange Marmalade Card stock, which is the perfect color for fox. I started this card by cutting out my fox on the Cricut. I cut the fox at 3″ in Orange Marmalade and gray blue for the shift layer. After I glued the layers together, I inked by the fox with some Tea Dye. Then I took my little fox, and held against various sheets of cardstock until I picked this red and gold pattern from the ancestry.com stack.


Then I cut my layers. I cut two pieces of Bazzill brown cardstock at 4 x 5 1/2″ and 2 x 5 1/2″. For the patterned paper, I cut at 3 1/2 x 5″ and 1 1/2 x 5″. Then I layered the patterned paper on the corresponding brown cardstock. Then I adhered the small layer towards the bottom of the larger layer. For the ribbon, I used a white piece of ribbon that I inked with Tim Holtz distress ink in Broken China, Tea Dye, and Vintage Photo. Once I had the color I desired, I taped the ribbon down.Then I adhered the fox down, before making  a bow. For the sentiment, I used a cardstock tag punch out from the Garden Party Stack. After the writing the sentiment:

Always do what you are Afraid to do ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

I inked up the tag with tea dye, and vintage photo. Then I attached the tag with a brad. For my card base, I used a gray blue 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece of card stock. After folding it, in half to make a A2 size card, I inked up the card base with broken china. Then attacked my layers to the card base. I hope you like this super cute fox card.
