Card In A Box for Teens

It’s occurred to me that while I’ve made a bunch of these “Card In A Box” cards, I haven’t shared any with you!  Ahhh! I hope I’m forgiven.  So here’s one I made recently for one of my sons.  I usually make a ‘fandom’ card for him based on some TV show or video game that he enjoys but this year he said he would be happy with a ‘regular card’. I was really pleased with how this turned out and loved the smile on my son’s face when he pulled this card out of the envelope and it popped up right into this cool box. Credit goes to my friend Monica Gale in the UK.  I used her video to make this card in a box and then decorated it to suit the look I was going for.  Click here to see Monica’s video and make sure you take time to look around her blog while you’re there, her work is absolutely amazing.

Stampin' Up! Card In A Box for Teens

I will say that the first time I made a Card In A Box I found it was a bit of a learning curve, but that’s because I tend to make regular cards more than anything.  Once you’ve made one though, then it’s easy to see how it all works and they become pretty fast to make.  The decorating part takes the longest for me, so you’ll want to have some sort of idea of what bits and pieces you’d like to add to your card. Here’s a view of some of the “bits and pieces” I’ve used.

And a view of the other side.  A little Card In A Box tip for you:  When you’re punching out shapes or die cutting bits of cardstock, etc, make some extras and keep them in a little container on your desk.  This will make it so much quicker next time you want to make a card in a box as you can dip into your stash of embellishments to add to your card.  A tackle box with some stars, “Happy Birthday” images, letters and numbers will make it quick and fun to create future Card In A Box birthday cards.

By the way, if you’re wondering how I got those silver stars – I just stamped the stars from the Simply Stars stamp set on the back of my Silver Glimmer Paper then cut them out.

I know I’ve used a tonne of products and stamps and stuff on this card but it gives you an idea of some things that you can use on your own cards which you might already have.  Or maybe you might see something there that you know is going to be versatile for you.

Teenage Boy Birthday Card

A little change of pace from my usual girly cards!  With twin sons, I often have some masculine birthday cards to make.  This week though being tired after a horrible virus, I felt my “teen boy cards creativity” was asleep but I had to get the card made asap.  What to do?  I was flicking through the Stampin’ Up! Catalogue for some inspiration and I found a card I loved on page 53 so I decided to copy that.  Here’s the card I made, it’s almost identical to the one in the catalogue but instead of putting an image of a football in the centre, I’ve put the “13″ for the age of the birthday boy.  I have to say I was very happy to see that the number stamps I had were not only a perfect fit but also looked like they were made for the other stamp I used them with.

Stampin' Up! Teenage Birthday card

So there’s a little idea for you, if you’re feeling like your creativity is a bit asleep at the moment, have a look through the Stampin’ Up! catalogue, you just might find something to copy and get you going again.  Of course I did happen to have the products needed (although I changed the colours slightly) but there’s no reason you can’t copy the layout or colour combination as a starting point.

Quick instructions on how to make this teenage both birthday card:

1. Stamp the wings image from Great Sport stamp set in Marina Mist ink on Very Vanilla cardstock, and then stamp (at least the top part) again with Early Espresso on another piece of cardstock.

2.  Die cut the blue image by placing the cardstock onto the Big Shot along with the large die from the Apothecary Accents and run it through to cut it out.

3.  Hand cut the little stars from the image stamped in Early Espresso and adhere them to the main image with Stampin’ Dimensionals (foam dots) which you cut down to fit behind the stars.

4.  Punch out a circle with the 1 3/8″ circle punch and the Wild Wasabi cardstock and adhere it to the centre of your stamped image.

5.  Stamp the “1″ and “3″ (or whatever birthday it is) with the Memorable Moments stamp set and Early Espresso ink then cut the numbers out.  Adhere to the circle with Stampin’ Dimensionals (foam dots).

6.  Stamp the banner image in Early Espresso on a scrap piece of paper then stamp over the top the Happy Birthday greeting with Marina Mist.  I used a clearmount stamp which made it very easy but if you have woodmount you might want to use a stamp-a-ma-jig to help with placement.

7. Put your greeting through the Big Shot with the Bitty Banners framelit dies to cut it out then adhere to your card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (foam dots).

8.  Cut a piece of Modern Medley patterned paper to be a bit bigger than your centrepiece.  Using a sponge dauber, sponge around the edges with some Crumb Cake ink to ‘vintage up’ the edges.

9.  Cut a piece of Marina Mist cardstock to be a little taller than your ‘newsprint’ paper (as shown in the photo) and adhere the newsprint paper to the Marina Mist cardstock.  Do the same with some Crumb Cake cardstock so that you have a border of blue and crumb cake at the top and bottom of your newsprint paper.  Rough up the edges of the Crumb Cake cardstock with a distressing tool (or your thumb nail!).  Adhere your centrepiece to your layered papers using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

10.  Cut a piece of Early Espresso Core’dinations cardstock so that it’s a little larger than your layered cardstock after you’ve folded it in half.  Sand it down a little to “vintage it up” then adhere your centrepiece to the base card.

Vellum Flower Birthday Card

Who said that scrapbooking papers with large patterns can’t be used on cards?  Actually I’ve had a number of people tell me this but I think it can definitely be done.  In this card I’ve used a patterned paper with large flowers as only a border for my card and I think it works well.

Vellum Flower Birthday Card

Here’s a closeup of the flower I made for the card.  It’s so super quick and easy to make it’s crazy.  Keep reading for the instructions.

Stampin' Up! vellum flower

To create this card I started with my base cardstock which I folded in half and then worked my way up.  Here’s the step-by-step instructions:

1.  Cut a piece of Watercolour Wonder patterned paper to fit the top of your folded card (making it a little smaller so you can see your base card underneath).

2.  Cut a Watercolour Wonder Designer Notecard in half (these are actual notecards made of watercolour paper), and use this as your centrepiece.

3.  Cut a piece of Gold Fancy Foil Vellum to the exact size of your Watercolour Wonder Notecard and attach that to the notecard using glue dots placed under some of the gold dots to hide the glue.

4.  Adhere your centrepiece to a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock cut a little larger than your centerpiece.  (yes, this is how I work – I don’t measure, I just cut cardstock a little smaller or bigger depending on how I’m layering).

5.  Tie some Gold Bakers Twine twice around the bottom of the card.

6.  Stamp your birthday greeting in Pistachio Pudding ink onto some scrap white cardstock and then put it through the Big Shot with an oval framelit which is a little larger than your greeting.  If you wish, you can use Stampin’ Up!’s Wide Oval Punch for this instead.  It’s a slightly different oval but will also work.  Use the brush end of the Pistachio Pudding marker and run it around the edge of the die-cut oval to give it a nice finish.

7. Die-cut another two ovals using Gold Foil cardstock and adhere them under your greeting – slightly to the top and bottom to give you a little bit of a border.  Adhere this to your card as shown in the photo, using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

8.  Now for the flower!  Punch out 6 flowers using Stampin’ Up!’s Blossom Punch and Gold Foil Vellum.  Wet the flowers (you can spritz them with a little water or as I did, put them under the tap with the water running gently).  Scrunch up each flower, open it up then leave to dry (this doesn’t take long).

9.  After the flowers have dried you can add some glitter to them if you like.  I’ve tried this in three ways: To do this neatly, you can either draw a fine line around each flower with some Crystal Effects then dip the flowers into the glitter.  Or to save time, and if you’re not wanting a precise finish, you can do what I did which is to assemble your flower first by placing each piece on top of each other, piercing a hole in the middle and inserting the brad then dip the edges of the flower into a pool of Crystal Effects (moving the flower around to get all the different areas), then dip it into the glitter.  Alternatively you can run a little glitter glue (Dazzling Details) around the edges of the flower.  I prefer to use a little glue then dip into the glitter to get more of a fine glitter look.

10.  Once your flower is done and the glue/glitter has dried, you can attach it to the front of your card using Sticky Strip (Crystal Effects would also work as it is a glue).  Layer your whole centrepiece onto the base card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Some birthday madness

Mosaic Madness that is!  I’m really having lots of fun using this stamp set and the more I use it the more confident I’m getting with it.

Mosaic Madness Birthday

This is a good card to make if you need to make multiples of the same card.  Simply stamp all the mosaic images then punch them all out.  After embossing the white cardstock with the Big Shot and Mosaic Embossing Folder, simply mix and match all your mosaic pieces that you stamped then add your embellishments.  Easy!  The ‘Happy Birthday’ sentiment was stamped onto white cardstock then I used the matching framelit to die cut it on the Big Shot (I also used the Magnetic Platform to keep the Framelit in place).

Birthday Butterfly Card

Well I was planning on having a lazy Saturday with lots of cardmaking but I ended up spending the day cleaning, and it wasn’t the fun cleaning of the craft room!  But I do have a quick and easy birthday card to share with you today.

The butterfly on the card is die cut using the Big Shot and a butterfly die and then it has been run through the Big Shot again with an Embossing Folder to dry emboss it.  When I’m doing something like this, I throw in a few pieces of cardstock at once to cut out mutliple butterflies that way I have a few spares to make some extra cards quickly next time I’m crafting.

So that’s it for me today.  I hope you get some crafting time in this weekend!

Elegant Birthday Card

I have a confession to make ;)  When I make a card for someone who’s not in the ‘card world’, I like to use heat embossing.  I remember when I first saw gold embossing and I was blown away that could be done by just anyone – not just Hallmark!  So now, I like to use gold embossing for non-stampers just so that I look extra clever, LOL.

It’s my Aunty’s birthday tomorrow and I wanted to make her a card that reflected her tastes.  The colours, the vintage style and images of fountain pens I think suits her perfectly.  It’s lovely to be able to dig through your stash of craft supplies and be able to find those bits and pieces that make a card individual for the person you’re making it for.

For this card I started with the patterned paper.  I thought the images on it were perfect so that was the starting point and theme for me.  The birthday greeting was heat embossed in gold and I’ll give you a little tip for when you’re wanting to heat emboss inside a frame.  I’ve tried this a few different ways and what I found the fastest and easiest way is to do your stamping and heat embossing first then do the dry embossing and die-cutting.  That way you don’t have to worry about stamping your greeting crooked.  To do this, I stamped the “Birthday Wishes” greeting with Versamark onto some Very Vanilla cardstock and dipped it into my gold embossing powder.  I like to keep my embossing powder in large plastic containers so that I can dip the whole cardstock in – it’s less mess than pouring your powder onto your image.  So, after your embossing powder is on, you use your heat gun to melt and emboss.  I then applied some Dotto (repositionable adhesive) on the back of the cardstock and placed it inside my embossing folder so that I could see the greeting nice and centred in the oval.  The Dotto kept my cardstock in place so it didn’t shift around when putting it through the Big Shot.  Once the oval was embossed I then die-cut around the oval with a Stampin’ Up! Framelit.  Sounds time consuming but it really only took minutes.

Some seam binding ribbon and a vintage brad finished off my card and kept to the whole ‘soft vintage’ theme I was going for.

Don’t forget, this gorgeous paper I’ve used is retiring in just over a week.  I’ve ordered myself 2 extra packs because I love it so much.

Pretty In Pink Doily Card

I got busy today doing a bit of cleaning around the house so this afternoon I treated myself to a bit of cardmaking.  Unfortunately the cleaning didn’t extend itself to my craft desk and after a week of creating it’s looking, well… creative!

Today’s card is one that I think you could change the greeting so that it could go for a variety of occasions, it could be a birthday card, get well card, thank you card, thinking of you, or whatever else.

To make this card I started with a base of Pink Pirouette cardstock and I cut it so that when I fold it, it opens from the bottom.  I find that makes it easier when I’m using ribbon to be able to adhere the ribbon ends to the inside of the front of the card.  After I finish the card I simply cover the inside with some paper to hide the ribbon ends.  To the top of the card I adhered some patterned paper and then punched out two strips of card with the Scallop Trim Border Punch.  The scallop borders are done in Melon Mambo (hot pink) and Pretty in Pink.  The seam where the Melon Mambo border and patterned paper meet is covered with the ribbon.

The hot pink doily is actually from some patterned paper I have which is laser cut so that the whole 12 x 12 sheet is doilies.  I simply snipped off one of the doilies and used that as my main image with a pink rhinestone brad in the middle to finish it off.

So there’s today’s card.  I’m quite pleased with the way it turned out but then again I do enjoy making monochromatic cards.

Sweet Birthday Wishes

I decided today to start my card off by using a card sketch.  Usually I just mess around with whatever bits and pieces of cardstock and paper I have until I think the card looks right but this time I drew up a sketch to work from.  Here’s the sketch that I drew and then below is the card I made from it.

Since my craft desk was already a mess with patterned paper, markers and brads from yesterday’s card, I decided to use those pieces that I had there before I packed it all away.  So here’s another ice cream birthday card:

 

This time I made the ice cream a double scoop!  You could make it triple or as many scoops as you want :)  I’m not overly fond of Calypso Coral as a colour (actually it’s just a thing about the coral colour in general), but I think on the ice cream with the Pool Party colour it kinda looks like strawberry & pistachio. mmmm

The ice cream was stamped by colouring the rubber with markers as I did with my last ice cream birthday card.  This time though I stamped the ice cream part again using a different colour and then cut out the ice cream cone and extra scoop and mounted them onto white cardstock with dimensionals (foam dots).

The trim on the right of the card is just a strip of Calypso Coral cardstock that I scored some lines on with my Stampin’ Up! Simply Score Board and then punched a scallop trim border on one side.  I used more of that fun Sweet Shop patterned paper to add to the ‘sweet’ theme along with those yummy Jelly Bean brads.

The Happy Birthday greeting was stamped in Soft Suede ink and then I punched it out with the Curly Label Punch.  Actually I kinda made a mistake and punched it out length ways rather than horizontal but it turned out to be a good mistake as when I punched out some Calypso Coral cardstock to see if I could do a bit of a border, I found that it worked really well.  Here’s how to do it:

Punch out the greeting vertically and punch out two extra shapes in coloured cardstock and snip the top and bottom off the second shape.

 

Glue the coloured cardstock horizontally under the greeting.  Then glue the extra pieces to the top and bottom of the back of the greeting.

Just a heads-up that the patterned paper and brads is retiring in two weeks on the 31st of July 2012 – so if you’d like some grab it now!

Ice Cream Birthday Card

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!

Here’s a move away from the usual flowers and butterflies on birthday cards (yes, my regular blog readers breathe a sign of relief).  How fun is this birthday card? I think the ice cream and sundaes would be great for a  birthday card of all ages.

The main image was done with the ‘direct to rubber’ technique which is simply to colour directly onto the rubber stamp with markers then stamp onto the cardstock.  This gives the mutli-colour image.  The background was created with the Diagonal Plate which is an accessory to Stampin’ Up!’s Score Board – some quick diagonal scoring was done to go with the waffle cone on the ice cream.

If you do like the patterned paper and Jelly Bean brads I’ve used here then you’ll want to hurry and order these as they’re going to be retiring in just over 2 weeks on the 31st of July 2012.

Happy Birthday Card

I was flicking through the Stampin’ Up! catalogue today and once again I surprised myself by things that I’ve missed.  I don’t know how – I must go through that catalogue a dozen times a day but nearly a year later I’m still finding inspiration.  Today I thought it might be fun to copy a card from the catalogue and this is the card I made.  It’s a copy of the one on page 38 of the Australian Stampin’ Up! Idea Book & Catalogue.

There’s a couple of very slight colour changes as I used what I had but other than that the card is the same.

The base of the card is embossed using the Big Shot and the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.  I’m always impressed with this embossing folder as it’s one that I use often for men’s cards as it goes well with masculine colours and images but then it still seems to work really well with this bright and fun birthday card.

The ‘Happy Birthday’ greeting was stamped in Black Stazon ink and then coloured in using my inkpads and a blender pen.

I really enjoyed making this card so I’ll definitely be copying some more from the catalogue when I’m a little stuck for ideas or looking for something different.  If you’d like one of these 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalogues then let me know and I’ll send you one (Australia only).  This catalogue will only be current until 31st of August and then the new 2012-2013 Stampin’ Up! catalogue will be released on 1st September.
