Spotted Puppy Slider Cards

Welcome to my MFT friends coming by for a visit – hope you brought a cup of tea or cocoa so we can sit down and have a visit! I’ll be snuggled on the sofa with this girl….she’s my rescue pup from Petfinder who brings me both chaos and joy! She loves her little brother Giallo like nothing else – you can follow them both HERE.

Spotted Puppy Slider Cards

Today I’m sharing a couple really simple cards celebrating PLAY! (Hope you get some time to do that!) I colored the pups to look like my Vienna (see her pics below!)….and kept the designs simple. Watch the video below, or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

The other two cards are adorable and simple too! For this pup, I punched a heart and colored it pink – chopping off a corner and gluing it to my pup so it looks like he’s carrying it.sandy-allnock-spotted-puppy-slider

This pup is on a rollercoaster of a slider – and there are many other shapes of slider dies available. I’ve collected a few in the supply list in case you’re interested.sandy-allnock-puppy-slider-card

Easy Popup Penguin Card

Easy Popup Penguin Card

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas! I have a card to share today that’ll be great for all winter long. And the die is a fun and easy interactive one you can use all year long. Check out the interactive blog gallery for more ideas.

Popup Penguin Card

Lawn Fawn got me excited when they came out earlier in the year with the Stitched Hillside Popup Die – so so so so many possibilities! Today’s card is wintry with all the clean white cardstock, but just think how this would work with green cardstock, or a patterned paper with tiny flowers or little grass pattern. All kinds of fun hillside scenes, adding different stamps to it – lots of fun! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

I kept the outside simple; and in order to keep color from seeping through from the outside to the inside by stamping the penguin directly on the card, I used one of the cut-out penguins along with a simple stamped sentiment.

Here’s the overhead view of the card – the two pieces in the back attach to the card base so it all pops up perfectly.

Lots of stamps will work with a pop-up die; I’ve got two sets with penguins (I listed them all for you in the supply list below) , but think of all the possibilities! I’m imagining grassy hillsides and so much more for other seasons!sandy-allnock-pop-up-penguin-card2

Popup Gift Card Holders

Popup Gift Card Holders

 

Christmas will be here SOOOOOON! Ack! And as I am travelling shortly – and personally delivering gifts for my family – gift cards can be the easiest thing to get through TSA. And these sweet cards can go through the mail easily too…they make a last-minute gift look well-planned! The coffee stamps here were sent to me by my friends at Sunny Studio Stamps.

Before I get going – I didn’t come up with this myself! Lyssa Zwolanek is an SU demo (her blog post is HERE, video HERE) – and she’s one of many who shared a tutorial that is easy peasy. I made my own adaptations to it based on supplies I have, so be sure to adapt using what you’ve got too! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

While I was making one, I went ahead and made two more in other colors. Cute huh? And so easy and fast!

While I heat embossed the snowflakes, and watercolored the panels and layered them – feel free to just use some pretty patterned paper. That’ll make them even faster!

 Nativity Mini TryFold Christmas Card

I’ve been making a bunch of these Mini TryFold Nativity cards for my Christmas stash…they’re beautiful and simple, very flat – and easy to color quickly! I stamped a bunch using the MISTI – once I had it set up I just kept stamping! Included in the video is an idea for making it easy – using just the droppers and not a palette. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

I love the Hydrus watercolors for their intensity – and that they don’t “move” once you go over them with another color. But they also blend with other colors while wet, too. Best of both worlds!

The three sets of 12 have different groups of colors – see which ones would work most with the kinds of images you color most.

Sprinkled with Joy – interactive oven card

Sprinkled with Joy – interactive oven card

I’ve seen a bunch of videos on YouTube with these dies – and if you’re looking for ideas, definitely go do a search! There are two die sets that go with the oven stamps, and I’m using the “add on” set here in this video. And colored pencils. Watch the video below for construction tips… or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

The oven itself is “inset” – since the outer panel is popped up on dimensional adhesive. That means the brad on the oven door won’t stick up like a big lump when mailed; and I find that if the whole card is evenly thick, sometimes they don’t charge the extra fee.sandy-allnock-sprinkled-with-joy-open-oven

I love adding surprise treats to the inside of a card, too!
