Fun Friday with Bonnie - 3D Paper Piece Card!

No time for coloring an image?  What about paper piecing?  
Want to make your card "the gift"??

The images on this card work well for paper piecing. 
In fact, i looked at the shop examples and the blog to see that other crafters have thought the same thing about this image called, Curious Gifts!

I like to use digital paper so that i can change the scale of the paper.
In some cases, i like to digitally paper piece too, because it cuts down on paper waste. 
Here is my paper pieced version of Curious Gifts!  The kitties were colored with Copics.
You can find more details on my blog here.
You can make your card a "gift that can be framed" by making it 3D.

To create a 3D image...
All you do is print the image off 3-4 times and layer it with foam tape!
Find a shadow box and frame your card!

Sami Stamps Curious Gifts can be found here in Sami Stamps Etsy Store
or
you can email Sami and request this image for $4
Here are some other cards using Curious Gifts image to inspire you!

Hi everyone! It is good to be back! I want to give a big thank you for our DT leader Grandma Bonnie and the rest of the design team for stepping it up and helping me out while I was away. I had a little special someone to welcome into my family and have been a little busy. =) I would like to ask everyone to please have patience with me over the next few months while I am trying to figure out how to balance my normal life along with my sweet baby girl.

Fun Friday with Emily!!!

Hey hey!!
Welcome back to another Fun Friday here at Sami Stamps!!
I have an adorable little shaker card for you today!
For my card I've used the Feather Nap image.  I love this sweet little kitty!  Of course she had to be colored up like my little Cloud baby with a big fluffly tail!

I used a sun ray stencil and added some Fossilized Amber through the stencil, then spritzed it lightly with some shimmer mist so it has a nice sparkle.  It was only after I had completed the card that I realized I did the rays in the wrong order...but oh well :)  I still like how it all turned out!

Once the rays were dry, I cut an oval from the center to be the window for my shaker card.  I cut some green cardstock to be my hill and adhered everything down, adding a fun golden sequin mix to the shaker.

I black heat embossed my sentiment on to a strip of vellum and wrapped it around my card and that was it!!

Thank so much for stopping by!  You have just a few more days to enter our Sentiments challenge so don't miss out!!

Another Fun Friday!

Hello!  Rae Ann here for your dose of Friday Fun!  October brings cooler weather finally to my neck of the woods.  I am loving the cool temperatures and lower humidity!  The cool temperatures and our current challenge to add brown or kraft paper to your project has me really feeling autumn!


I used one of the new releases, Jack O'Lantern Mane, for this project.  I found this awesome digital paper in my stash and thought it fit the challenge and the image perfectly.  A few pretty embellishments and it was done! 

You can pop over to the challenge and play along for a chance to win Sami Stamps prizes.  Just make sure to use a Sami Stamps image to be eligible.

Fun Friday with Emily!

Hello everyone and welcome back to another Fun Friday!
Today I'm sharing an awesome card featuring one of our newest Spooky Unicorns!
I love this Mushrooms and Bats image and how you could take it in either the spooky route or the soft and gentle route.  I tried to do a little cross of both by putting the card into a dark scene with the large super moon coming up behind her, but also giving her a playfully colored mane and some shimmer.

For this card, I used my Prismacolor pencils.  With so much coloring and dimension, I find pencils are best for me since I have a lot more control over where the color goes.  And I can use a blending solution to smooth everything out once I'm done if I wish.

Once everything was colored, I layered the whole panel onto a black piece cut to the same size, but shifted them so they criss-cross.  Then layered these panels onto a Kraft mat that I added some brown colored embossing paste through a dot stencil onto.

The sentiment was white heat embossed right onto my unicorn panel and that finished the card! 

You have a little bit of time left to join in our current challenge to use brown or Kraft cardstock on your card!  I hope you will join in!!

Thanks for visiting!! <3
