Beyond The Stars with A2Z Scrapbooking

Hello Crafty Friends - I am here with a fun U Fold shape card. This card is much easier to make that it appears - plus it fits in your standard card envelope.

I am using Hero Arts Lucky Star Stamp Set CM315.

The best part is that it stands up creating a fun display.

1. Start with a piece of card stock measuring 6" x 10".

2. Score at 11/2", 3", 7" and 81/2". The measurements I've used will give you a card measuring 6" tall x 7" long when folded.

3. Fold along the score lines beginning with a mountain fold, then a valley fold, another valley fold and ending with a mountain fold.

4. If desired, you can add some patterned paper and stamps at this point. Once you add the bottom panel it will be a lot more difficult to add embellishments to the background.

5. Cut a piece of card stock measuring 2" x 7". If desired, use a pair of scissors or a border punch to give a decorative edge. Apply glue or double-sided tape to the back of the last 11/2" of the card stock as shown in the photo below.

6. Secure the card stock to the bottom of one end of your card. Stand the card upright to make aligning the bottom easier - you want it to be flush with the bottom edge of your card.

7. Now repeat with the other end of the card stock strip to complete base of your U-Fold card. 

Thank you for stopping by today!!

Happy Mother's Day Card with Rinea

Hello Crafty Friends - I am here with a quick and easy Mother's Day Card.

I used the 3D Rolled Star Die to create some flowers for my card and added a sentiment.

Materials Used:

Other Items:
Hero Arts CL498 - Celebrate Stamp Set
StazOn Jet Black Ink
Cardstock: Recollections Brand 110lb White
Evaney Stamps/Dies: Small Stitched Circle
Manual Die Cutting Machine
Adhesive: Aleene's Tacky Glue & Jot Brand Low Profile foam

So, let's get started.

I started by die cutting 2 of the #1 Rolled Star bases- 1 in Fushia/Fushia Starstruck and 1 in
Blush/Blush Starstruck, I also cut 3 leaves: 2 in Jade/Jade Starstruck and 1
Emerald/Emerald Starstruck, also with 2 small stitched circles from Marigold/Gold Glossy.

Once I have all the components die cut; I stamp my sentiment onto a card front panel measuring
 4-1/4"x 5-1/2" (the same as my card base).

Next, I take the Fushia/Fushia Starstruck Rolled Star-base and start to curl the edges and curve the sections creating petals for the first flower.

I then add the circle I cut from the Marigold/Gold Glossy to the center of the flower.

Next, I adhered the flower using foam adhesive to the left bottom corner of the card front panel. I then tucked in a leaf under the flower.

then, I took the other Rolled Star-base that was cut from Fushia/Fushia Starstruck and trimmed it apart. I kept a three-part section and a two-part section as shown in the picture below. Along with the other stitch circle and the other leaf.

From the two-part section; I flip it over and curled the edges to form petals. I then gentle curved them downward. I set them aside for a moment.
 Next, I adhere the circle to the three-part section toward the bottom. Then, I adhered the petals I just created on top of the three petals. I again, curl the edges and curve each of the little segments to form petals.  Next, I adhere the leaf to the bottom of the petals.

I flip over the flower and add low profile foam adhesive and a bit of liquid adhesive to the stem.

Place the flower onto the card front panel. 
Tucking it just under the larger flower. I add another leaf to the flowers. 

Now for some finishing touches. I adhered some purple sequins to the center of the larger flower. I layer a larger light purple sequin and a smaller dark purple sequin. I also add some next to the flowers.

Now,  the card is complete. 

This quick and easy card can be created for more than just Mother's Day. You can create it for birthdays, anniversaries or just because - any reason! The 3D Rolled Star Dies along with the Rinea Foil paper make it all so easy!

Thank you for stopping by the blog today- I hope you are inspired!

Believe in Yourself Card with White Rose Crafts LLC

Hello Crafty Friends - I am here with another card created with the March Blue Skies Kit. This Kit is so full and I can keep creating cards for another month.

I keep this one pretty simple. Some die cutting and a bit of Tim Holtz Distress Spray for a splash of fun.

Let's get started!

I gathered all the materials I would be using for this card. All but a few things are from the kit. The Distress Spray, the White Tiny Flowers, and Specialty paper are from the Add-on section of the shop. From my stash I am using Spellbinders: Card Creator Dies and Lawn Fawn: Spring Sprig Dies.

First, I did all the die cutting. I used 3 of the Spellbinder card creator dies(#, #2 & #3) to create 2 little frames. I die cut the Gold Specialty paper from the kit.

Next, I used the Lawn Fawn Spring Sprig dies to die cut the sprig from Green Specialty paper and the little flower for die cut from 2x of the creamy Specialty from the add-on section.

Then, I trimmed my sentiment and a few extra strips from the pattern paper that is included in the kit. I then used a bit of the Scrapberry ink included in the kit to add some color to the edges of the strips.

Next, On the Blue card base included in the kit - I did some brush strokes and splatter from Distress Spray in Spiced Marmalade and I then add a bit of Mermaid Lagoon Distress Spray splatter.

Once the background was dry I am ready to create the card. 
I gather all the components to the card.

I start with the little frames. I adhered one frame flat and the other with some foam tape for some dimension.

Next, in the little space that the two overlapped frames created, I build my cluster. I start with little sprigs then I added the little tiny white flowers (from the add-on section). I then added the pattern paper strips on foam tape. Finally, I added the tiny die cut flowers some are adhered directly and some are adhered with foam tape. 

Next, I add the finishing touch with the sequin Butterfly and some of the Doodles Paper Playground Sparkle Blend Sunny Skies from the kit. I start with the butterfly - I add some foam adhesive to the body and wings. Place it just under the sentiment. Then, I add some liquid glue to the center of the butterfly and added 3 of the Gold curly Q's from the Doodles Paper Playground Sparkle Blend Sunny Skies. Cleaned up any extra glue.  

I also added a 5 small Glitter sparkles from the  Doodles Paper Playground Sparkle Blend Sunny Skies toward to left bottom and top right of the frames.

Now, the card is complete. I will add and piece of white cardstock inside for writing my message.

Supplies Used for Both Cards:
Gold Specialty Paper, Kaiser Craft Pattern Paper, 
Blue Cardstock Card Base, Scrapberry Ink & 
Doodle Paper Playground Sparkle Blends: Sunny Skies

With so many beautiful stamps, papers, 
Specialty papers & Inks in the shop 
I know you are bound to create something wonderful!
