Hi Queen & Co friends! Today I’m sharing a couple cards featuring the Foam Front cards and glitter washi. First up is a card using the Solo Butterfly Card Kit.
I used silver glitter washi for the butterfly background. To do this, I simply placed the butterfly cutout over my card base, then I traced around the inside of the butterfly with a pencil. I used the pencil line as a guide for laying down strips of washi.
I filled the butterfly with Donuts, Pops and Diamond toppings. To compliment the silver glitter washi, I outlined the butterfly with silver glitter glue. I finished off the card with some handmade roses die-cut from the new 6” x 6” paper pads.
It's Amy Sheffer here today with some festive, bright and fun shaker card ideas. A friend and I were reminiscing recently about our family vacations to Disney a few years ago. Our reminiscing soon became scheming and plotting a return trip with both families together! All our Disney talk inspired me to pull out my Mickey Foam Front Shaker Kit and create some magic!
I started by adhering the foam front to the card base. Next I used the Mickey Foam Front Die to cut two panels, one from black card stock and the other from the yellow polka dot pattern in the Delightful Dots 6"x 6" Mat Stack. I placed the yellow mouse ears cut-out inside the shaker, the filled the shaker with an assortment of red, black, yellow, and white Toppings (Sequin Sprinkles, Donuts, Posies, and Pops).
Next I covered the shaker with the acetate window and then adhered the black card stock top panel. I stamped my sentiment in red ink onto a white strip, notched the end, adhered it to the card front, and topped it with a button from the Button Bouquet II Red collection tied of with some black and white striped twine from the Twine Assortment.
Along the top, I added some star garland die-cuts and a sprinkling of White Rivets, Red Rivets, Yellow Rivets, and White Lollies.
Next, I decided to try a girlie Minnie Mouse version of the iconic mouse ears. Again, I started with the Mickey Foam Front Shaker Kit. I adhered the foam piece to the card base, then backed the shaker with black card stock and filled with a mixture of Toppings (Sequin Sprinkles, Posies Candy Sprinkles, and Bitty Beads).
I added some Black Polka Trendy Tape, Silver Skinny Glitter Tape, and pink Skinny Minnie washi tape to a white card panel, then die-cut it with the Mickey Foam Front Die and adhered it to the foam front. I added a die-cut sentiment and some bling (White Lollies, Pink Petite Posies, and White Sunflowers).
Last, to complete the Minnie Mouse look, I created a bow from pink polka washi tape and cinched with some black and white twine from the Twine Assortment.
Changing gears a bit, this next card is a cheerful hello card featuring the Chevron Foam Front Shaker Kit and green, yellow, and blue Donuts for toppings.
I started by adhering my foam to the card base and filling the channels with Donuts in blue, yellow, and green. I topped the foam with a white panel that I cut using the Chevron Foam Front Die. (I use the die and my own card stock this time so that the chevron panel would match the white I used for the outer frame. Otherwise, I would have used the white die-cut panel that's included in the kit.)
I added a two-piece stitched border frame, the outside in white and a narrow inner portion from yellow card stock.
Last I added a metallic silver thread nest, a triple-stacked word die-cut, and a pair of Blue Lollies.
For my last card, I let my inner artist out to play, and it was so much fun! Those flowers are hand-doodled around the circle shakers on the Bubbles Foam Front Shaker Kit and then loosely watercolored for an artsy look.
To begin, I adhered the Bubbles Foam Front to a card base. Next I used the Bubbles Foam Front Die on watercolor paper, but instead of die-cutting, I used the embossing sandwich to emboss the circles. Then, using those embossed circles as a guide, I did the doodling and watercoloring. Once that was done, I placed the die back on the watercolored panel, fitting the cut lines back into the embossed grooves. This time I ran it through with the cutting sandwich.
I placed the flower center cut-outs inside the respective shakers on the foam panel, filled with pink, orange, yellow, and purple Pastel Diamonds, covered with acetate, and then secured my doodled panel for a seamless look from flower petals to flower center.
I finished off with some Yellow Sparkle String, a stamped and die-cut sentiment, and some White Petite Posies.
Hi Everyone! Jana Eubank here. Lately, I have been focusing on getting some older photos scrapbooked, in rotation with my newer photos. I try to switch back and forth ... one new, one old, one new, one old ... so that I can get caught up on our older memories, while still recording the details of our latest happenings.
Today I have two pages for you, both of them feature the NEW Foam Front dies.
This first page features newer photos of my husband and I when we went to the Magic Kingdom recently to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary.
I wanted to challenge myself to use the NEW Foam Front Mickey die in a creative way on this page and decided to use it as a journaling block.
I cut the shape using red solid cardstock and then backed it with a yellow solid paper. I outlined the mouse ears with a journaling pen and then sprinkled several toppings on the inside.
I combined together red and blue Sequin Sprinkles, white Lollies, red Candy Sprinkles, Neutral (black) Pearlies, blue donuts, as well as blue and black Fimo Fun Toppings for a festive look!
I added journaling strips to the top of the foam front shape and then placed my title work below.
I also created a fun cluster of embellishments at the top of the journaling block.
I added some festive Magic Ribbon around our photos and then finished it off with the "Love" flair from the Magic Flair set. Perfect for our anniversary, don't you think?!
For this second page, I decided to work with some photos from 2010 that I have been ignoring for far too long. They are of my daughter and her friends at a Cast Party after they performed in their Elementary's school play of Aladdin.
For this card, I used the Foam Front Stars Die to build a background for my page. I love the way it came together!
First, I cut blue and green cardstock with the Foam Front Stars die, and then used my trimmer to trim the die cuts into 4 1/4" squares. Next, I embossed them with various embossing folders from my stash and then adhered them to a block of white cardstock, adding Yellow Skinny Glitter Tape along the seams for a touch of sparkle.
I added a strip of photos, tied with blue Sparkle String, and then got to work on the title and journaling block.
I used a tag card that I die cut on my Silhouette machine, layered on top of a piece of patterned paper. Green rivets decorate the tab of the card, and Bitty Beads add texture to the green chipboard letters I used as part of the title. At the top, I layered together more glitter tapes (Green Dot Glitter Tape and Yellow Check Glitter Tape).
For more color and texture, I sprinkled some yellow Button Bouquet II buttons around the page, along with the yellow stars from the Fimo Fun Toppings. They feel like confetti sprinkled on the page and definitely add a party feel! Yay! "Celebrate Good Times, Come On! ... It's a Celebration!"
Hello Queen and Company friends! It's Mary Ann Jenkins here today with two layouts to share, both with a fun Disney theme!
My first layout is of my son and Mickey Mouse, and even though he wasn't too sure about Mickey, I still wanted to capture that special moment.
To start my layout, I cut strips of paper from the Around the Park 12x12 Mat Stack, and glued them on to my cardstock. To really give it a Disney feel, I added the gloves from the Magic Shaker set, that I covered in white cardstock, and then added the "magic" word epoxy icon across top of both of them.
Continuing on with the Disney theme, I have a layout about taking my son to the theater to see the Cars movie.
I again started with strips of paper from the Around the Park 12x12 Mat Stack, and centered my photo between them. I added the filmstrip shakers from the Say Cheese Shaker Set, they go so well with the movie theme! I filled the shakers with gray and white Fimo Fun Stars mixed with the pearl color Pearlies.
The cute Fast Pass tickets, and Official License are from the Around the Park Mat Stack too, they made the perfect embellishments!
