Cotton Candy Cards – 5 ways

Cotton Candy Cards – 5 ways

It’s kinda not funny when a stamp set makes you out yourself as a lover of finely spun sugar, but there ya go. You know my secret! I recently saw Avery Elle’s Cotton Candy stamps and dies – and indulged my secret love.

I especially encourage YOU to get yourself some Avery Elle….remember when I told you about some companies undergoing rough times recently? Avery Elle is another target – so do a good deed and go shop directly on their site, and leave some positive love in the comments section on your order! Buying direct at full price once in a while is one way you can help keep our industry thriving!

Shaker card – with some EbyE (Essentials by Ellen) embellishments – Crystal Clear Hearts and Butterfly Sequin mix.

This background looks a lot like colored cotton candy! Squirt some colorless blender on Neenah and drop some reinkers on, and then let it flow around as it dries.

More of a traditional alcohol-ink-looking background but with Copic refills. This is on photo paper, and if you get grumpy when things like this sometimes stay sticky, the acetate overtop makes that no problem at all!

Texture from crumpled tissue paper is smoothed out a little under vellum!

And last but not least – fluffy cotton balls!

I added liners to each card with the sentiment on it – coordinating the inside colors with what was on the cover.

POPTARTS!

The kid in me gets so excited by poptarts! I always loved the ones with the frosting – strawberry was the BESTEST flavor! And the sprinkles!? Gah! They know how to sell a kid on loving a product!

Of course that meant I had to make a card with Lawn Fawn’s new Let’s Toast set – with the poptarts! And I made one of my crazy backgrounds to go with it, but it’s super easy.

Marker colors were centered around reds and blacks/greys, but you could pick your own favorite color scheme for your kitchen scene.

The action wobbler action makes the additional poptart jiggle with fun – it’s always a great way to get a card to be a toy instead of just a card.

Puns?? YES PLEASE.

And another video? Yep!

For those worried that I’m cutting back too much by reducing one YT video, here’s proof I’m still doing all the extras, too: my guest video will be up at Ellen Hutson’s blog in a few hours – check in later today! (Her blog makes posts live later than mine.)

Candy Wobblers for Valentine Treat Favors

Candy Wobblers for Valentine Treat Favors

My little project today is so cute I decided to post it today….partly so I had an excuse to write a blog post and pass on a little heads up too! (See that after the video and pics!) These were treats I gave out at a Christmas luncheon but made them so they’d also work for a Valentine’s project, since I’m pretty sure you’re done with holiday projects by now. And iif not…well, you’re done. Let’s just say that. Heehee! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

Whatever little critters you decide to put on the wobblers, they can be stamps or diecuts, or just pretty hearts. Whatever you want on yours! But these birds are just CUTE!

Colors used on my little birdies….
Best little bird army ever!

For my bonus card – I’ve turned the birds into chickadees and put them all among the snowy branches, singing their little hearts out!

Heads up!

In case you don’t remember – tomorrow starts a 2 day sale on classes! That way if you’re giving (or receiving) a gift card for a present, the money goes a little further! Buy a gift card now.

Penguin Week #3: Four types of shaker snow

Penguin Week #3: Four types of shaker snow

 

Wheee! I’ve apparently fallen in love with penguins…because I discovered I’ve picked up a ton of penguin stamps this year! I decided to combine them in one big ol’ week full of penguin cards – I hope my penguin-loving friends will enjoy the stamps, and my technique-loving friends will enjoy learning too!

Penguin Week #2: Four types of shaker snow

Every year I seem to need to “try again” – because I can’t remember which of my snow has how much static in it! The static causes it to stick – sometimes for better or worse – to the front of a shaker card. But the new Scenearama one made me think of those old iron shaving drawing games from my childhood…anyone remember Wooly Willy? Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

Moving Carousel Horse Card

Moving Carousel Horse Card

When I saw this carousel stamp set I knew it had to move and make a Moving Carousel Horse Card out of it. Up and down, up and down, like it did when I was a little girl and loved going around the carousel! It took me a while to figure out; but it works! Not a dramatic bit of movement but it’s still fun.

Look at all the pretty little pearlescent details!
