Happy Fall to y'all !! As much as I love the summer with the sun and spending lots of time outside , I do like Fall to . Can't wait to see all the beautifull warm colors of nature that fall brings. Putting on my warm socks , curling on the couch with a nice book to read and a hot cup of tea when it's raining outside..love it.
We are living near a forrest now so when the weather is nice I'm shure going to make walks and rideing my bike there, maybe to search for some fall stuff to decorate the house with.
So it's also time for a fall/ autumn card. Beatrice designed some beautiful fall papers with warm colors for her iralamija etsyshop. The one I used for this card is from the Harvest collage . The fall sentiment is from waltzing mouse.
Hello today I made this slider( easel) using the gorgeous papers of Iralamija etsy shop for you .
I found this card when surfing at the world wide web a while ago and it's been on my bucketlist sinds than.
As you see there is a pullout on the top when you pull it the center slides up and you get a easelcard with hidden message.
Here you have a sceme with the mesurements , of course you can adapt is as you wish to any size of card you want to make. This is the base I used ice blue cardstock for it.
When you did the cutting and scoring you fold the card like shown at the picture and decorate the inside.
I glued the paper I wanted to use on the outside of the card , before I cut and fold the card.. I think it works better that way. You get cleaner cut and scorelines .
Than you make a label that is a little smaller than the card ( because it needs to slide )
and a little wider than the easel part and glue flap as shown in the picture below
Than glue the side flaps on the back so you get a pocket. Now if you pull the top of the label out of the pocket you see the easelpart comming up.
very fun card to make and I'm shure I will use this one more often.
Today I have this card for you , made with the gorgeous papers designed by Beatrice Jennings for her beautiful etsy shop Iralamija.
I used several papers . I used foam tape for the rose , butterfly and the sweet friedn sentiment to give the centerpiece some depth. For the frame I used the glittertechinque I explained in this post **CLICK**
I love the digital papers of Iralamija ( in case you didn't know yet) And I never throw away the little scraps and snippets I have left over from making a card or project using this papers. I just can't ... I love them to much. Only thing is that at a certain point I have a lot of little bits and pieces . These are great for using fun little shabby projects like this little tin with mini album in it.
For this one I used a tiny peppermint tin it's 2 3/8 inch by 1,5 inch and you can by it at the xenos.. of course you can use an altoidtin as well
The first thing you do is sand it sandpaper , I used the 120 one , than you paint it with an al-purpose primer. I used Aleene's ( see picture) .
Let it dry thoroughly and than paint it in your favorite color acrlylicpaint ( I used ivory from Aleene's) After you let that dry, you can sand it a little to get it a worn look and than you can decorate it with your favorite papers , I used tombow mono multy liquid glue to stick it on the tin, in my opinoin it's better than tacky glue what I use a lot too.
Than you make some little chipboard pages that fit in your tin,decorate with the basis layer ,them and distress the edges
I love my prima distressing tool for this job, I have an oldie from making memories too but that works only on papers. The one from primamarketing works perfect with thicker objects like chipboard .
As you might have noticed. I like to add a little shimmer to my embellies and frames.
I am a but clumsy if I work with glitter you can find it allover the house and it sticks to my fingers to be short : it's every where besides where I want it. But i found the perfect solution for that . I use a mixture of fine glitter like the sugar coating from Doodlebug and clear embossing powder. I use 1/3 clear embossing powder and 2/3 glitter.
First I color or paint my to glitter object in the color I want it , than I cover it with, in this case versamark watermark ink.. the Perfect medium from Ranger works great too . Actually I prefer that one but it was empty so I used his one it did the job perfectly.
Than dip your to glitter item face down in your mixture , add a little pressure . get it out and heat it with your embossing tool.. taaadaaaa.. a perfect glittered.
I used to make my mixture in a little bottle, and than pour it over the object using a tidy tray ( see tutorials) but found it works better to make the mixture in a container and dip the object in the mixture..less mess.
Tie everything together with I little binding ring or piece of lace, ribbon, string..what ever you want. Or maybe keep them apart like cards and put it in your decorated tin.
I'm not really shure what papers I did use for this project but these are the ones I know for shure.
They are all available at the Iramalija etsy shop. Some of them I printed in a smaller size , and that's just what I like about digital papers : you can print them when ever you want, how you want and how much you want.
