Birthday card for a music lover

Hello there,

I am here with a card for The Paper Shelter (TPS) challenge #372. TPS is a stamp company which provides digital stamps, accessories, pattern paper and much more. 

We also have challenge blog where every week we have a different theme for the challenge and these are showcased by 2 teams. And for this week our challenge is "BIRTHDAY CREATIONS". While entering the challenge, please remember to stick to the theme. 

I have used The Saxophonist image to make this card. My friend's birthday is coming up soon and he loves music. I thought this will make a perfect card for his birthday. He's a very simple guy and he plays a flute. 

I used some tag die cuts from Lawn fawn for the background. I gave some dimension between each tag layer. I used a die cut for the image. Its a very simple card for a simple music friend. 





I hope you all liked my card. Do check out our website for more images and also participate in our weekly challenge and get a chance to win great prizes (link for both are available at the beginning of the post).

Happy crafting.

Altered MDF board

Hello there,

I am here today with another project for Le Ann's World 101. I have tried something new this time and I did an altered MDF board the size of the board is 9 x 5 inches. The image I used today is Sweet Henrietta. She's a cute girl holding a trumpet and I added some roses and foamiran flowers. 


I have also made a video on hoe to make this altered board and will post it in my you tube channel soon (yet to be edited). My cousin who has to edit the video is having his exams and I will upload the video once he is free. 


We are celebrating Le Anns first birthday in facebook (LINK HERE). Its so much fun to play and I em enjoying it. I have made this for the occasion as a celebration from my side and also for the weekly challenge. 






Moving on to the board, I have used chalk paint for the base. I used the paint on both sides of the board. Then I stenciled the base with shimmer paste and dried it using hot gun. Then, instead of using spray inks I dabbed some dye ink. I added I piece of fuzzy cut floral pattern paper. A base to add the image, I added a piece of corrugated paper and burlap lace. I also sprayed some black ink spray




For the next step, I added some roses and die cut leaves along with foamiran flowers along with some pollens. 



Before adding the image, I added an action wobble on the back of the image. Its so adorable to see her wobble. To finish the board, I added a birthday sentiment . 



I hope you all liked this work

2. I took a card base measuring 51/2 by 6 inches. 
3. I trimmed some of the card base in the middle. This will help in creating a floating window. 
4. I added some patter paper to the outside and inside of the card,
5. I added the image to the front of the card using tacky glue (or any strong adhesive). 
6. I applied glue only to the top and bottom of the image. Leaving the middle free. In this case to the shoes and their head. When the card is open, it shows the window and the image floating. 
7. To finish the card, I added sentiment and embellishments.

Project 2 - Gift box




1. To make this gift box, I took a cardstock measuring 8 x 8 inch and and scored at 2 inch on all sides. Made a slit at the conjunction of the scored lines and using strong adhesive I pasted them on the inside to turn it into a box. I made the lid of the box the same way using 7 x 7 inch card stock. 
2. Once I finished the box and lid, I added some pattern paper. Distress them using antique linen distress ink. I added some gemstones and lace to the box. 
3. To decorate the lid, first I added a piece of burlap and added some granular paste and heat set it. I added a piece of chipboard. I cut and added a piece of floral design (from pattern paper) using strong adhesive. I added some distress spray before proceeding to the next step. 
4. For the next step, I added some flowers and leaves using tacky glue. I added some layered die cuts and a sentiment along with the image and some embellishment.

Part 2 

Here, I will be sharing 2 cards using old stamp sets (fairy tale sets). These two are lovely cute sets. One is Beauty and the Beast - Tale as old as time and Cinderella - You are so enchanting. 


Card 1 - Chabby Chic card




1. For this card, I used Cinderella image. This stamp set is not a love set but you can turn it into a valentine day card. I coloured the image along with a little mouse and added the image to a circle die cut which I ink using ocean waves ink and kept it ready. 
2. I did a lot of die cutting for this card. I used die cuts like window, flowers, leaves and a curved border die. 
3. I love to use corrugated paper and burlap lace in such projects. 
4. I added some flowers, leaves and embellishments. 
5. To finish the card, I added the image and a sentiment from the set. This sentiment is super cute and makes it a different valentine card.

Card 2  - Spinner card







1. To make the spinner card, I used Belle and Beast from the set. I coloured them with the traditional colours. 
2. I die cut the card base and another piece of card using circle die cut. I also die cut a heart and kept it aside. 
3. I used a grey thread here to make the spinner element. I sandwiched the thread between the heart die cut and belle image. On the other side of the heart die cut, I pasted the beast.
4. I then opened the card base and positioned the spinner element to the center. To keep it in position, I used some washi tape. Then, I added some double sided tape and cut the extra thread. 
5. I embossed the upper layer cardstock using Anna Griffin embossing folder. I added this piece to the top of the card. 
6. To finish the card, I added the sentiment and embellishment. 
7. To make the spinner element, just twist the image for a few times and close the card. The image will spin when the card is opened.

Thankful embellished cards

Hello there,

I have 2 cards using flower stamps from Altenew - Garden Treasure and Honeybee stamps - Country blooms

For the first card, I stamped using Altenew inks - Cool summer night set and Green fields set on vellum. I have used heavy base vellum so I could heat set before stamping the next layer. 

I then fuzzy cut the vellum images and added all of them together on one side of the card base. I added a sentiment and gem stones and finished the card. 







For the second card, I tried something different by using circle mdf embellishments. I took 3 sizes of this embellishment (this is mostly used for mixed media work). I held them together using washi tape and stamped the image on the other side of the mdf. 

Then I coloured them and added them on a top fold note card and finished the card by adding a sentiment.
