“Big Day” Chalkboard Card

Which Sale-a-bration set is your favorite? (Don’t know? Check them out right here!)  This Birthday set called “Big Day” is on top of my list!  I used it to make this Birthday flip card!  I also used the new Chalkboard paper and the new ColorBox Chalk ink pads! The Chalkboard paper has a smooth grain that pairs perfectly with the Chalk ink pads! I love that contrast! I also used another Birthday stamp set called “Celebrate Today” (from the new Occasions catalogue p.11) This set has matching framelits dies to cut the balloon, banner, bow etc… Buy this set and Framelits as a bundle and save 15% on both!

Cute Penguin Flip Card

Today’s card is really cute and I’m quite happy about how it turned out!  Let me know if you like it!

I made this flip card with the Circle Card Thinlits dies. Flip cards are so easy to make with that die! When you pull on the left part, the circle “flip” and shows the other side,  it’s really cool! (You can see other flip cards here.) To make this cute penguin, I used the Owl builder punch. I also used the “White Christmas” stamp set for the greetings and the little snowman. The snowflake is from “Cheerful Tag” and matched perfectly the ones printed on the “Trim the Tree” Designer Series paper stack. I also used the tree from “Festival of Trees” in the background behind the penguin.

Cut 2 Real Red hearts and a small circle for the “bow”.  Use the smallest petal from the Blossom Petal Builder punch to make his wing. Adhere on the circle and then on the card.

Two more Masculine Flip Cards!

I’m in love with the flip cards! (But I think I already mentioned it in this post!!!) With the new Circle flip card, it’s so easy to create this really cool card! I made one for my son’s 12 birthdays and for my brother’s birthday. Since they are a bit similar, you get a 2 for 1 today!

So here’s the card I made for my son:

A fond! Gabriel A fond! Gabriel flip2

I really like this card because when you flip the card, the car seams like it’s moving forward! I used a few stamp sets on this card: Rev up the Fun! (the car and wheel tracks), Clockworks (all the gears), Gorgeous Grunge (ink splatters) and Just Sayin’ (word bubble). The card base is Island Indigo. I added a flap to write the message in the inside and I used Smoky Slate card stock on the top of the flap (RHS). The number 12 is made with Silver Foil card stock (p.193 in the new catalog!).

Here’s the card I made for my brother:

A fond! Francois 2014 A fond! Francois flip

A fond! Fracois close-up

This card is Basic Black and I used Silver metallic ink to stamp the gears on the front. It really “pops” on the Black card stock! I heat embossed the motorcycle with Pewter embossing powder and colored some part with Daffodil Delight, using the Blender pen, to match the yellow ink splatters (made with Gorgeous Grunge set). The right panel is also Smoky Slate card stock, stamped with Smoky Slate ink. The “WOO HOO” is from a new stamp set called Bravo.
