Faux Layered Background Die Card

Hi All,

Rosie here sharing a card using the Mama Elephant Circular Grid die

This Mama Elephant die cuts 12 circles, it works great with all the cute Little Agenda stamps Mama Elephant makes. After watching this Jennifer McGuire video I was inspired to create a layered background.

I decided to create a rainbow coloured background:

I cut panels from white, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet card stock from my stash.

I started by layering the red panel behind the white panel, slightly offsetting it to one side so you can see a slice of red from the front.

I used liquid adhesive for the layers since it takes a little bit of time to dry so I could adjust the layer until it was right where I wanted it.

I continued adding the layers, in rainbow colour order, alternating from left side to right side. I used the white die cut as the guide for trimming the offset layers.

Once I finished adding all the layers I adhered the entire panel to a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" white note card. I die cut "happy" with a die from my stash in black card stock and white heat embossed "birthday" from the Mama Elephant Happy Everything stamp set.

I finished it off with a coating of Nuvo Crystal Glaze over the happy die cut.

I love how this turned out, so much fun to make!

Live Simply Waterfall Card with Video

Hello! Karla back today with a fun, easy waterfall card using the Photoplay Waterfall Card Kit and the Simple Stories Spring Farmhouse Collection. Just by using the bases included in the kit, which comes with all the elements to make 3 cards, you can easily create an interactive card that looks extremely intricate!

I layered paper from the Simple Stories 6x8 Paper Pad and shaded the cardstock with Distress Oxide Inks in coordinating colours. 

The Simple Stories Sticker packs are filled with tons of stickers including images, words, phrases! They are perfect for scrapbooking, planners and cardmaking - and worked wonderfully on the 2x2 images cut from the 2x2 Elements Cut Apart Sheet.

You'll totally be addicted once you pull the tab to flip the waterfall! 

I used the Mama Elephant Mini Messages Stamp Set to add a sentiment inside and the Pull sentiment on the bottom of the pull tab.

I'm so excited to try another one of these cards! It is great for using up scraps from your stash or busting out a new collection. And, just think how much fun whomever you give it to is going to have! 😉

Here's a look at the video where I put it all together -

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to check out all the fun Photoplay kits in the Scrap Shotz store, as well as the gorgeous Simple Stories Spring Farmhouse Line! Have a wonderful weekend friends!

Die Cut Cards

Rosie here with a few cards for your viewing pleasure😊 using some fun dies available in the store.

Can I be honest? I wasn't going to invest in the Lawn Fawn Magic Picture Changer Die but after making a couple of sample cards I was hooked; for the card above I used the Lawn Fawn Birthday Before and Afters set. I stamped the images on Copic friendly card stock and coloured with Copic Markers. 
I can't wait to use this die with some of the new Lawn Fawn release which you can preorder right HERE

There are a number of great dies in the store and I finally had a bit of time to create some cards with them. First up is a card featuring the Tim Holtz Destination Die:

The card front is created by ink blending Distress Oxide inks in Squeezed Lemonade, Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet and Blueprint Sketch. I then adhered Die Cut'N Bond double sided adhesive to black card stock and cut the Destination (globe) die cut. The die cuts all the pieces out as you can see in this photo:
I left a few of the die cut pieces in place as you can see below:

The sentiment is from Mama Elephant Friendship Sentiments, stamped in Versafine Black Onyx ink, heat embossed with Ranger Clear Embossing powder on vellum. The top and bottom are framed with a sliver of Best Creations glitter card stock. The sentiment is adhered with liquid glue over the die cut.

These next two cards showcase the versatility of the Tim Holtz-Thinlits Dies Retro Repeat, the set has 4 different dies that can be used to create a border or a repeating die cut across a card front. It also happens to be on sale right now at close to 50% off so it's a great value for 4 dies!

Here you can see how the die easily lines up with the previous cut to carry across the card front inked with Distress Oxide inks.

The die cut front is then layered over dark silver glitter card stock, sentiment from the Mama Elephant Friendship Sentiments set and sparkle courtesy of Studio Katia gems.

Here we have a completely different look as the silver glitter card stock is die cut with the "star" thinlet and then layered over an alcohol pearl ink background with foam adhesive.

The sentiment is die cut with the Altenew Fancy Hello die from the same alcohol pearl ink background.

I hope you've enjoyed a quick look at some of the metal dies available in the store, thanks for stopping in to take a look!

June Scrap Shotz Kit - Fall Family Photo Layout

Hello again! Karla back today to share another layout using the awesome Scrap Shotz June 2019 Scrapbook Kit and available Add-Ons featuring the Heidi Swapp Wolf Pack Collection! For this layout I'm using a sketch from a Scrapbookin' Adventures Sketch Class and a Fall family photo that was taken at Fish Creek Park in Calgary, Alberta. As you can see, this collection works well with any season!

I started out by layering a piece of the coordinating cardstock on a piece of the beautiful Heidi Swapp grey and white triangle paper. Next I cut some realistic tree paper and added that to the background along with a piece of birch paper. I really love the neutral colour palette of this line!

Next, I added stitching with my sewing machine, my matted photo, washi tape from the kit and the beautiful coordinating Thickers in the kit for a title.

I added a cluster of washi, tags cut from the patterned paper, ephemera from the kit and one of the Embossed Stickers, which are so cool! The tiny puffy stickers are an Add-On and can be purchased separately.

I added some twine from my stash and some journaling on one of the ephemera pieces. The Ephemera Pack in the kit is full of gorgeous cardstock, acetate and vellum pieces!

A small vellum sentiment from the ephemera pack is attached with a little matte medium and finishes off the layout.

Be sure to head over to the Scrap Shotz Store to check out the June 2019 Scrapbook Kit and available Add-Ons and start scrapping your beautiful photos! Have a wonderful summer friends!
