Craft Online - Happy Birthday (Video)

Hello friends, today I'm back for Craft Online to create a Birthday Card. I'll be using some dies from Poppy Crafts along with glitter paper to create a fun sparkly card. 

I started off with pulling all of the dies I was using out (they're all linked down below) and die cut them from the colours of glitter cardstock I wanted to use. I cut the butterfly from pink, leaves from two shades of green and the background from copper. I also die cut a circle from vellum and the banner from black. Once everything was die cut out I added foam tape to the backs of the leaves and background and adhesive to the back of the butterfly. 

I adhered my background down to a card base and then adhered the leaves and butterfly to my vellum circle. For my sentiment I white heat embossed the 'Birthday' from Happy Happy Happy by Lawn Fawn onto the right hand side. I then stamped the 'Happy', die cut it out and adhered it to the left hand side of my banner. I added foam tape onto the back and adhered it into place. 

Lastly I took my vellum circle, added more adhesive onto the back and adhered it into place. I then decided my images needed more dimension so I took some Copic Markers and coloured in the centres a little to make them have more depth to them. 

(Copic Markers Used: R81, R83, R85 / G24, G28, G29 / YG61, YG63, YG67)

Hello Bluebird - For A Fairy Good Friend

Hello friends, today I have a card for Hello Bluebird using the Fairy Garden Stamp Set. I paired this set with the Gallery Frame 3 Dies and an alcohol inked background. 

I started off with stamping my images on white cardstock and colouring them in with Copic Markers. I stuck with a pink, purple and aqua colour scheme. Once they were coloured, I cut them out. 

(Copic Markers Used: RV21, RV23, RV25, RV29 / B63, BV02, BV04, BV08 / RV91, RV93, RV95, RV99 / E41, E42, E43, E44 / W00, W0, W1, W3, W5 / Y13 / R30 / B0000, B000, B01, 0 / YG01, YG23, YG07, YG17 / YG61, YG63, YG67, G28 / Y21, YR21, YR23, YR24 / BG10, BG11, BG13, BG49, E000, E00, E21, E02)

I also cut the Gallery Frame 3 Dies from silver glitter cardstock and cut a couple of the strips out to change the design. I added foam tape onto the back of the frame and all of my images and set them off to the side. 

For my alcohol ink background, I used four colours along with alcohol solution on some yupo paper. I first added on alcohol solution and then dripped on the four colours, used my Distress Sprayer Tool to help move the colours around and then dried it off with a heat tool. 

(Alcohol Ink Colours Used: Tim Holtz - Limeade, Pool, Amethyst, Turquoise)

Lastly I adhered my frame at an angle and adhered my images inside. For the sentiment I white heat embossed the 'For A Fairy Good Friend' onto a black strip of cardstock. I then adhered that onto my card and tied a hemp cord bow onto the side. 

That finished up my card for today, thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you got inspired and I'll see you next time.

Now that all the details are out of the way, let's move onto the card I made.

I used the new Mother's Day Stamp Set along with the Lattice Background Die

I started off with stamping out my images from the Mother's Day Stamp Set using a stamping tool, I coloured them in with Copic Markers and cut them out. I also cut the Lattice Background Die from white cardstock and a stitched circle from light grey cardstock. 

(Copic Markers Used: RV10, RV13, RV25, RV19 / YR00, YR02, YR12, YR18 / BG10, BG11, BG13, BG49 / Y00, Y11, Y13, Y18 / YG01, YG23, YG07, YG68 / B0000, B000, B01, 0)

I next cut down a yellow card base and adhered my lattice background over the top. I stamped the 'Happy Mother's Day' sentiment with black ink onto the grey circle and also added that to my background on the right hand side. 

Lastly I added adhesive to the backs of my flower images and adhered them into place next to the sentiment.
