Reveal Wheel Birthday Card

Lawn Fawn has done it again…this reveal wheel card was so easy to make with their reveal wheel dies and the coordinating sentiments and dies to go with them…everything comes together so easily and quickly and the end result is perfect…here are a few video tutorials that are helpful in understanding how to put the reveal wheel together –  Reveal Wheel 3 ways by Nichol Sphor, Reveal Wheel by Carissa Wiley and Reveal Wheel card Design by Jennifer McGuire

Before putting together all the die cut elements for the reveal wheel, I applied some Distress Oxide inks to create the background…I have used cracked pistachio, peacock feathers and blueprint sketch shades here…I also stamped some tiny confetti all over this panel using unicorn white ink….

Once I finalised the layout of this panel, I stamped the sentiment using black ink and then assembled the reveal wheel section…I added a stamped, coloured in and die cut dinosaur on this panel as well…

On a plain white card base, I adhered a diagonally striped colourful printed front panel and then added the reveal wheel on top….I also stamped an arrow and ‘turn the wheel’ stamp to make it easy for the recipient to understand how the card works..
Here is a small video I made to show you how my card turned out…

Smile Crocodile

I have finally been able to try one of the techniques shared by Jennifer McGuire for stamping on Kraft cardstock and getting brighter results from coloured ink…the trick it seems is to stamp first with white pigment ink and then with the coloured ink…and any kind of a stamping tool like the MISTI or TH stamp platform would definitely come in handy…although for my card I have used a stencil not stamps but the process is the same…

After cutting the front panel to size, I used a circle stencil with an inking sponge to apply unicorn white ink and then various Oxide inks to create my pattern…once completely dry,I stamped the chevron grid background stamp covering this panel with watermark ink and then heat embossed it with a super fine pearl embossing powder…I adhered this panel to a Kraft cardstock card base and started on the other elements of my card..

I stamped the cute koala and crocodile on a piece of white cardstock and coloured them in using Zig  pens and a water brush…I die cut them using the coordinating dies and set them aside….I die cut the word smile from white cardstock ) which I coloured blue using salty ocean Oxide ink and two more time from Kraft cardstock and layered them before adhering to the card stock..I stamped the word ‘crocodile’ on a white label and placed it below the large word…

I adhered the koala and crocodile images using some foam squares and also applied some Nuvo gloss to these images for a bit of shine and dimension…to embellish my card I have added some white dot sequins…

Your Kindness Melts My Heart

It was high time I pulled out Kraft cardstock for a card coz I don’t think I have used it for a card this year….and it’s already May…I have also tried out three new things in this card…a new stamp & die set – Altenew Focus on you, a new embossing powder – Altenew Rose Gold and a new white ink – Hero Arts unicorn white..

First,I chose a leaf stamp from the stamp set and stamped it repeatedly on a piece of Kraft cardstock front panel using white ink…I have used a couple of small dot stamps as fillers for my background and at the same time making sure I didn’t overcrowd the panel with my stamping…I adhered this panel to a Kraft card base and added a white die cut lace border on it…

On a piece of white cardstock,I stamped and heat embossed the sprint flowers as well as the sentiment using rose gold embossing powder and coloured the images using Spectrum Aqua markers and a water brush…I cut out the sentiment and layered it with a Kraft layer before adhering it to the card front and then die cut the flowers and placed them behind the sentiment…
