Day 1 MCT 101st Edition Sneak Peeks ~ Pocket Card

Hi, it's Gaylynn.  Here is Day 1 of the My Creative Time 101st Edition sneak peeks.



Sentiment:  Make every day count.

For today, I am sharing a floral pocket card or gift card holder.  This one has two die-cut flowers on a die-cut pocket sleeve as part of the card front.  The flower and sentiment are part of the sneaks.  And the treat sleeve die is a revised set coming soon.  And it includes extra fun dies like this little tag and other accents.   I love this sentiment, especially during these recent times.

Foiling digital toner prints with Copic markers graduation card.

Hi there.  Today, I am sharing a graduation or encouragement card and video.  I used a digital stamp for this flower along with a pre-stamped and embossed sentiment from a red rubber stamp.


Sentiment:
Behind you all your memories, before you all your dreams, around you all who love you, within you all you need.

Here are helpful tips for creating this card.  To begin, either use printed digital stamps or hand-stamped images and a sentiment for use with Copic markers or your markers of choice.  Also, preheat a laminator.  Then, trim or die-cut the image panel and the glitter background panel, to fit your card base.  Next, stamp the sentiment.  Then, using clear embossing powder, heat emboss the sentiment to prepare it for foiling later.  Next, add color to the flower in layers for a variegated look.  I used Copics in a variety of colors listed below.  Next, sandwich the stamping with a piece of gold foil over the stamping, pretty side up, between a folded parchment paper carrier sheet.  Then, run it through a preheated laminator.  Gently peel away the foil.  Finally, layer everything and add twine to finish.

I made a quick video tutorial showing the process for this project.

Rustic or masculine miss you or support card with ink blending.

Hi there.  Today, I am sharing an uplifting card to offer support or encouragement.  I used two sprigs multiple times for a look of repeat stamping.  And then I added ink blending accents.



Sentiment:
None of this is easy.  I am here for you even though we are apart.


Here are helpful tips for creating this card.  To begin, stamp the sprigs repeatedly or place digital images multiple times along the bottom border of the top panel.  Then add the sentiment.  Next, trim or die-cut all of the layers to fit your project.  For the top layer, add distress oxide ink in two colors around the edges, moving inward.  Then, heat set the ink.  Finally, layer everything and add photo corner accents to finish the card.


I made a quick video tutorial showing the process for this project.

Narrow shaped card with an oversized watercolor flower.

Hi there.  For Technique Time at Unity, I am sharing a creative way to make a narrow shaped card with an oversized watercolor flower.  This was made to fit into an A2 sized envelope.



Sentiment:  So sorry for your loss.

Here are helpful tips for creating this narrow shaped card with an oversized watercolor flower.  To begin, trim a card base to 11" x 3".  Then, score at 5 1/2" for a narrow top fold card base.  Next, stamp and emboss the sentiment and accents directly onto the card base, leaving room for your main focal stamp to be added later.  Then, stamp and heat emboss a big flower onto the smooth side of watercolor paper.  For color, watercolor or use your color medium for the oversized flower.  Next, cut out the flower with scissors (fussy cut).   Then, add foam tape to pop up the oversized flower over the narrow card base.  Finally, place it so that the card will still fit inside of an A2 sized envelope.  For example, I placed my flower diagonally, so that part of it remains off of the card base.

I made a quick video tutorial showing the process for this project.
