Creative Cards with Karla – Stitched Laundry Birthday Card!

Howdy friends! It’s Karla back today to share a fun stitched birthday card! Now, usually you wouldn’t associate laundry with FUN but when you combine the Lawn Fawn Loads of Fun stamps along with lots of SpiegelMom Scraps sequins, burlap string and felties, you can’t help but have fun!! Our theme this week is to add stitching to a project, so I got out my sewing machine and added a zigzag stitch over the Black May Arts Burlap String to add a little clothes line to hang my laundry on. I have lots of fun stitches that I’ve never even used on my machine, so I thought I’d try a cross stitch one along the bottom of the card. I love how that turned out, and I’ll definitely be using it more! I even grabbed some Kaisercraft Nesting Stitched Squares Dies and cut a background from some pink Shimelle Starshine paper.

Today I pulled out Fairy Garden, Be True 2 You and Jaded Hearts sequin mixes to use on my card. After I coloured my images with Jane Davenport coloured pencils and added some paper piecing with some Shimelle Starshine papers I had lots of fun adding these sequins!

I used one of the heart felties to do some handstitching on, doing a ‘blanket stitch’ around the edge, sewing on a button and adding sequins by stitching a ‘french knot’ into the center of each pretty little flower. A quick online search will show you lots of handstiches you can try!@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @lawnfawn @americancrafts @shimellelaine @kaisercraft #smssequins #sequins #sequinlove #handstitching #machinestitching #fauxstitching #diecutting #stamping #paperpiecing #cardmaking #greetingcard #happybirthday #felt #coloredpencils #laundry #loadsoffun

Inside, I used another of the Kaisercraft Nesting Stitched Squares Dies, inked and stamped with Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink.

Here’s a look at the supplies I used from the SMS Shop:

The Heart Felties are now sold out! There are a few Felties left in the shop and they are being discontinued to make room for fun, new things. But don’t let that stop you from grabbing some felt and diecutting or handcutting your own to try some stitching techniques on!

 

I popped my cute laundry up with foam dots to add some dimension, and I can’t wait to give this to a special friend on their birthday! I’m sure I’ll even think about how much fun I had making this card while I’m doing real laundry later today 😉

All You Need Is Love Shaker Tag

Hello everyone!

Ka here with a fun love themed tag to share with you today! Okay, seriously how cool are these hearts sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps newest release? I just love how they are embossed! I knew these sequins were the one I wanted to highlight this week. You can use these for any type of love theme projects.

Love Shaker Tag

I started off by covering a white shipping tag using a mint diagonal strip washi tape and used a rectangle die to die-cut the window. Next I stamped the sentiment from Mama Elephant Smitten stamp set in red to another shipping tag. I filled the shaker portion with Hearts on Fire Sequins mix. After I had completed the main tag, I worked on my smaller tag by stamping an image from the same Mama Elephant stamp set in gray and added a tiny heart from the Pink Felt-Fetti Heart Die Cuts. I finished off my project by tying together the two tags using May Arts Navy Blue Burlap String.

So what do you think? Thank you so much for stopping by today. Don’t forget to head over to the SpiegelMom Scraps Shop to grab these cool embossed hearts sequins and the other new products from the new release.

Until next time…

Tuesday’s Talent ~ Ka Slagoski is here!

Hello everyone! My name is Ka and I am beyond thrilled and honored to be a guest designer for Spiegelmom Scraps! I want to thank Jody for inviting me to guest design here and for all the awesome products she given me to create with. Every Tuesday, I’ll be sharing a card or two here for the month of September. Woo-hoo! Let me get started by sharing a little information about me, then we’ll move on to the cards.
profileI am a longtime papercrafter who have dabbled in many forms of paper crafts, but my true passion is creating cute and whimsical cards. When I’m not paper-crafting, you’ll find me watching my favorite comedy TV shows, playing games at Dave & Buster, playing tennis, and hanging out with my husband, family and friends. 🙂

Now, let’s move on to today’s cards. This first card was so much fun to create. I fell in love with the Shimmerz Paint Paste when I was playing with it. I think I may just need one in every color! 😉

Hello Sunshine 1

“Hello, Sunshine” Card

I started this card off by placing My Favorite Things Sunray Stencil over the white cardstock and sponged Mustard Seed distress ink, going outward from dark to light. Then, I rotated the stencil and filled in the gap by spreading the Shimmerz Paint Dazzlerz Lemon Drop Yellow paste with a long plastic palette knife. I set that aside to dry. 

Hello Sunshine 2

Once that was dried, I randomly added some Spiegelmom Scraps Glossy Black Sequins and some Pretty Pink Posh metallic sequins. I stamped the sentiment using Avery Elle Elle’s Alphas and cut them into small strips. I added a strip of One Way Arrow washi tape to the left side. I finished this card by popping the sunray panel up on the card base with foam dimensional adhesives.

Youre Awesome 1

“You’re Awesome” Card

 This next card, I decided to play with punches and patterns. When I first saw the Studio Calico Stars Wood Veneers in Spiegelmom Esty shop, I knew I wanted to make something with them. I decided to create a grid by scoring the cardstocks into thirds. Then I punched out some stars in 3 different patterned papers using a small star punch. I also punched out a tag with a scallop tag punch and stamped the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Quite the Pair set and white heat embossed the sentiment. Next, I adhered all the stars on the grid and sew some of the Maya Arts Burlap Strings from Spiegelmom Scraps Etsy Shop to the stars. Then, I added some Studio Calico Tiny Stars Wood Veneers on top of the stars for a fun look. The scalloped tag was popped up with dimensional adhesives and a green bow was tied on top. I finished the card off by popping the entire panel with foam dimensional adhesives onto a navy card base.

Youre Awesome 2 (1)
