This Harry Potter inspired birthday card was so fun to make! I used bright colors and these adorable images from Trinity Stamps to create this fun, interactive card.

To start, I stamped out the images from the stamp set, Happee Birthdae, with Gina K. black ink onto a piece of 80 lb. Neenah card stock.

I then went on to color the images using Copic markers and added a few white gel pen highlights. The rest of the images were accumulated during the last Daily Marker 30 day coloring challenge, so I was raring to go.

I used Lawn Fawn's scalloped box die to cut out the main components of the box card from some blue-green card stock. Before assembling, I set it aside to work on the ink blended background pieces.

Using a piece of Canson watercolor paper and a blending brush, I blended together picked raspberry, seedless preserves, and wilted violet distress oxide inks.

I trimmed down the blended background to fit the flaps on the box card, including the outside. Then I used the stitched rectangles from the die set to cut out the rest of the panel pieces from a sheet of purple card stock.

For the sentiment, I used the stamp set Magical Sentiments, and pieced together "Wishing you a Magical birthday." With Versamark ink, I added it to the larger stitched rectangle piece and heat embossed it with white detail embossing powder.

I did the same thing to the other two purple pieces using small images from the stamp sets Wizard Friends and Magical Wizards.

Once all the pieces were complete I began to assemble the box. I used Lawn Fawn 1/4" double-sided tape on all the tabs and burnished it down with my bone folder. I first adhered the two main pieces and then added one side of each of the inserts.

I removed the release paper from the other side of the inserts and closed the box over top of that to attach the other sides.

From there, I started adhering the ink blended background to the inside, as well as the heat embossed panels. After that, I added the characters to the inserts and popped out the owl by attaching the image to a strip of acetate.

On to outside I added more of the ink blended pieces and decorated those with the rest of my colored images.

I also included a piece of white card stock on the back of the box card to create space for a message.

I just love how this card turned out! ✨😄

Hedgehogs are so adorable and so is this Lawn Fawn stamp set made up of these two little sweeties. Sending Hedgehugs was one of my first stamp sets and is still one of my favorites, so I thought these cute images would be a good focal point for a clean and simple Valentine.

To start, I stamped the images onto Neenah 80 lb. card stock with Gina K. amalgam ink and colored them using Copic markers. Then I cut the images out using my Scan ‘N Cut.

For the main panel, I used a piece of patterned paper from a 6x6 Pebbles paper pad called Forever My Always. I used white streamers from the dollar store to make a crepe paper rosette and layered a pink stitched scalloped circle on top of that.

Before attaching the rosette to the card front, I added some pink baker’s twine and secured it in the back with some washi. I used a little hot glue to attach the rosette and then used some Tombow liquid glue to add the images on top of that.

I used a sentiment from Lawn Fawn’s You’re Just My Type and stamped it onto a piece of dark pink card stock. I heat embossed the words with white detail embossing powder from Recollections. Then I took the largest Lawn Fawn Everyday Sentiment banner and cut out the sentiment vertically.

I then used a scrap of white card stock to mat the sentiment banner and attached it towards the upper left corner of the card front.

I used liquid glue to attach the card front to an A2 110 lb. white card base.

To finish, I used Liquid Pearls to add a little extra shine and dimension to card.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Hi there!

Today I am doing a project share from a swap I recently participated in on Instagram. It was hosted by two awesome crafty ladies @discodolly456 and @craftymomoftwo; you can check out all the wintery goodness at #snowangelswinterlandswap2019.

I was so excited to be part of this swap because I haven't done much paper crafting outside of card making and it was fun trying out all these new projects.

I'd say I have a mostly clean and simple style, but I absolutely love layers, rosettes, and dimensional embellishments, however, when it comes to creating, I sometimes get overwhelmed with all the options, so I stick to what I know.

But being part of this swap required making an acetate embellishment folder (Michelle's Little Creations), an ornament, tassels, a mini banner, and teabag sequin mixes (Septeria18). It was the perfect reason to try something new, including using a sewing machine!

The theme was winter wonderland and for that I used Doodlebug's Winter Wonderland collection, along with some additional Doodle pops.

I used streamers from Hobby Lobby to create my very first crepe paper rosettes, which I used to make my first paper wand and other embellishments.

For the tassels, I used various ribbons and charms that I have collected from Micheals, Dollar Tree, and Hobby Lobby.

The bows are made up of tulle and Doodlebug brads and the glittery flowers are made from glitter card stock and Tim Holtz's Tattered Florals dies.

For the mini banner, I made 2"x3" envelopes and used mini clothespins to clip them onto a piece of baker's twine, which I knotted on each end to make two loops.

I think my makes turned out pretty cute, but I was absolutely blown away when I received my happy mail from Andrea, @craftymomoftwo.

Everything was absolutely gorgeous! I'm so inspired! 🎀🌸💕❄ I definitely can't wait to be part of another swap. 😊

Thanks so much for stopping by!
