Nighttime Roller Coaster Card in just three colors!

Nighttime Roller Coaster Card in just three colors!

When I saw this little roller coaster stamp set, I just had to buy it and make a card – and it brought back so many memories of going to amusement parks! We usually went during the day but I always loved it when I was old enough to go in the evening – everything sparkled in the moonlight, and the rides were so much fun in the dark when you could go up high and see the twinkling lights! And I also thought the paint combo in my wristband palette would be perfect for this!

So there’s my card inspiration…hope you enjoy it! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

Here’s the wristband palette out in the wild….

I want to go wait in line with them! Save me a ticket!

Everyday Hero Gift Card card

Everyday Hero ‘Gift Card’ card

The new release from Ellen Hutson today inspired me! A friend at church has been sick for a few weeks – and that inspired me to make this card when I saw I could make this Everyday Hero wear a “Here to Help” sweatshirt! I used Copic airbrush for the background….see how when you watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

I used the same background technique with the Hot Mess Lady…cute eh?

Mermaid Slumber Party Card

Sandy Allnock Mermaid Dreams Slumber Party Card

Mermaid Slumber Party Card

Sometimes a card just designs itself – today is one of those! I started by stamping the images on a long scrap of paper, just to see which of the Flora and Fauna critters works best as a mermaid, and which prefer to be unicorns. And when I saw them all lined up in a row – I thought, AHA! A slumber party! Yep, I went there! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

So am I crazy for coming up with an idea like this? No don’t answer. Let me live in my own little artsy world! Teehee!!

Toast might be something I’ll be using for Toastmasters cards…..

DONUTS! Need I say more!?!?!?

Waffles. Just making me hungry! (They shoulda had chicken in the set too, don’t you think? Have you had chicken and waffles before?)

Color a Fortune Cookie

Fortune Cookie Card by Sandy Allnock

Color a Fortune Cookie

This new die from Ellen Hutson is a simple one – but it’s not hard to make it look *spectacular* with a little Copic coloring! Pop it onto a clean and simple card along with a sentiment from the Fortune Sentiments set, and you’ve got a fun little card anyone would love to receive. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

I kept my card really simple – just a popped partial black panel on a red base, and a simple white embossed sentiment! The cookie carries the design well!

AI Interactive Series #3:  Twist Tie Cards

Cards with unique openings are something Art Impressions does well – they have lots of cool ideas! Twisting necks around each other is a brilliant idea….and I want to try using the stamps together without the die portion thingie sometime too, they’re cute. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

These are fun cards to make even if the stamping can be a tidge fussy – they’re totally worth it!

AI Interactive Series #2: Circlet Tryfold Cards – four ways!

Circlet Tryfold cards by Sandy Allnock

AI Interactive Series #2: Circlet Tryfold Cards – four ways!

I saw some photos from CHA showing alternate layouts for these cute circlet tryfold cards. Lots were way crazy fancy! The circle ones had patterned paper layers and more – I do hope someone does videos showing how they made them. And the “booklet” style one too – the pic I saw had paper layers and was on a normal sized card. But instead, I did the “CAS” version of what I saw, all on Canson XL paper – which works better with markers like the Zig Twin Tip ones used here. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

First, the “basic” format of a tryfold – shown in yesterday’s project.

Next is a “booklet” style card, with an extra panel inside.

Here’s a birthday card that attaches at the top to open, using a brad. Note the round sentiment is missing on this one, but it’s on the stamp set – I masked and wiped it off.

And last but not least, a chain-style round card that spins on two brads.

Happy Camper Tryfold tutorial by Sandy Allnock

A few notes before we get rolling –

  1. Yesterday – a big announcement is over HERE!
  2. Even though some of you aren’t interested in my Bible Journaling,  you still might wanna see Puppies on Ice! They’re at the start of the video.
  3. I’ve added a pretty spectacular painting to my Society6.
  4. Today is the start of a series this week with NEW interactive stamps and dies from Art Impressions…BIG thanks to them for providing them to me so I can show you – and you can decide which if any need to come home with you! (My apologies to your wallet!)

 

 

AI Interactive Series #1: Happy Camper Tryfold Card

Campers just make me think of summer vacation – even if I never have take a vacation in a camper before! But a girl can dream, right? This is one of two new Tryfold sets that are tons of fun to put together and color – I used my Prismacolor pencils this time. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

List of Prisamcolors used: 1033, 1002, 918, 122, 945, 1095, 103, 208, 1079, 1096, 935

Here are the panels individually, and a picture of the way the card folds. Stay tuned tomorrow – I have FOUR different layouts for those tryfolds!

And this little produce stand is adorable – with a little raccoon sneaking a snack inside! The stamp on the front went on a little off-center (user error!) so I compensated by putting the “OPEN” sign on the left and an extra potted plant.

Vienna’s Explosion Box Card (HBD to my girl!)

Vienna’s Explosion Box Card

Today is my girl Vienna’s birthday – so today….it’s a pup card! And since I haven’t STILL made an explosion box (I bought this die a YEAR ago!!), I figured…it’s time! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

I decorated the box panels with the black and white patterned paper from Ellen Hutson – keeping the box all black and white (like Vienna!) except for the center “party” section.

I love that these really DO fold super flat; I was skeptical, but….gotta say, it’s true! It’s a one-stamp card.

 

Bible Journaling Challenge begins today!

Hope some of you will join in! Lisa, one of the folks planning to join in, started a Facebook group so we can share our work – some folks prefer a more private setting. There’s also an all-students all-classes Facebook group for students – a great place to share your work from ANY of my classes!
