Rubber Moon Birthday Creation

27 Dec

Hello everyone in blog world.  I have a special project to share today.  This is for one of my daughters, who has recently had a birthday.

Her birthday is close to Christmas and I know she feels like she gets overlooked most years.

This year was no different, especially with her mommy(me) having to work, and therefore us needing to wait to celebrate her birthday until the following day!

So, I put a lot of effort into making a sweet card for her!!

When she was little, I called her the Purple People Eater, so I’ve made her card in purpley colors, mostly!!

The base of this card is a shadow box.  Inside I’ve used one of the 2″ Matboard squares, by inchiearts.com, to mount the Stamped Birthday Cake onto.

Before I put anything on the matboard, I stamped it with the Checkerboard background stamp, using Stazon Opaque white ink.

I also used the adorable Oh la la stamp and Background splatter stamp in various places.

The canvas star is a fun mixed media piece by LinnieBlooms.com

All the other embellishments are things I had on hand at home.

So what do you think?  Is it a convince-able labor of love for my DARLING DAUGHTER???  I hope so!  I had a ton of fun putting all this together for her.

Be sure and stop by the RubberMoonArts blog.  The women on our team are so amazingly talented!!  You will not be disappointed.

For now, have a great day, this has been Jeannie, with today’s Rubber Moon Arts post.

I Heart {ippity} Wednesday Wowzer

7 Mar

I am still making my way through my NEW stamps from I Heart {ippity}.

I have so much fun working with these stamps!  It is never a chore and they are such crisp and clean images to use!

Today I am using the itty bitty set called:

BIRTHDAY GIRL

Here is my card.  Oh GOODNESS I love it!

Here is the inside of the card.

 Here is a side view.

I am using papers from the Echo Park THIS AND THAT GRACEFUL line.

While writing this post and looking at this card it made me question my creative abilities.  I mean I love this card, it’s GORGEOUS, but then I part of me thought, it’s the paper,   it’s the stamps, not me!  Certain stamps, like {ippity}, and paper companies just have such gorgeous images and lines, is it possible to make something unappealing with them?

That is my wonder, question thought for the week!

What do you think?

I will be linking this up to the Hippity with Ippity Sketch challenge.

You can find the sketch HERE:

Since they are using a Split Coast Stampers Sketch, I will post in my gallery there too!

wow, we can make good stuff!

Now head on over to I Heart {ippity} to see what I am talking about!

An Authentique Paper Never Ending Card

13 Feb
I am excited to share a tutorial with you today. I made a card like this on my blog last week and had a lot of positive feedback, so I thought today I’d share with you how you can make your own.
I have named this card “The Never Ending Card.”
The original pattern for this came out of a book called Very Mary Stationary.
To start you will need 4 pieces of paper.
3 pieces all cut from the same paper will form the base.  The dimensions of those papers are:
4 1/2″ x 10 1/2″
1 1/4″ x 1 3/8″
1 1/4″ x 3 1/2″
The other paper you will cut from Decorative Paper and the dimensions are:
4″ x 4″
Take the longest piece and from the left short edge score lines at
1) 1″
2) 1 3/8″
3) 5 7/8″
6 1/4″
Fold along the score lines and you are creating a box.  Put adhesive on the outer edge of the 1st scored section create the box shape.(see next picture)

 

Here is what it looks like, I like to decorate the front before assembling, I find it easiest to do it in this order.
For the tabs you will take the shorter pieces of paper and score them at these increments.
The 3 3/8 paper, score from the left at the 1 1/2″ mark and the 1 7/8″ mark.  Fold on the score lines and adhere to the card middle left.  This just acts a barrier so the inside card does not fall out.
For the 3 1/2″ paper score from the left at the 1″ mark and the 1 3/8 mark.  Fold on the lines and adhere the longer end to the inside center right.  To make the tab open or close, either use adhesive velcro or some sort of reusable adhesive.

 

For the card enclosure you will need on piece of paper that is 4″ x 10 3/4″.  Score this paper at the 2 1/2″ and 6 1/2″ marks.  Fold the shorter panel up to create an pocket and then fold the other score line to create the card.  Embellish as desired.
Here is the completed card front.  You can see that I used a Card Candi for my tab and underneath I used the Tack it Over and Over glue.
 Here is a close up of the card front.  Don’t you love the Celebrate Papers?
Here is the card enclosure.
The card enclosure opens up to reveal a pocket inside..
…inside the pocket is a matching gift card holder.
Here is a close up of the gift card holder.  I just love the floral print on the enjoyment paper.
Here are the different pieces side by side.
Isn’t this a great card?
It really is easy to make, if you have any questions regarding how to make this..feel free to ask me.
I have been enjoying working with the Celebrate line and I hope you enjoyed my card today.
