Anthony's Paper Craft February 2019 New Release Blog Hop

Today I have something special! Not only do you get to see the card I made using a brand new stamp set from Anthony's Paper Crafts (APC), but you also get to see what some of the other designers have made as this is a blog hop!

APC is releasing 12 new stamp sets in February so we have a sneak peak at some of the stamps. Make sure you keep an eye out for my release video over on my YouTube channel scheduled for February 2nd where I will showcase each stamp set and the samples made by all the designers. (Link below).

So this is the card I made and I really love how it turned out!




I started with this beautiful tile stamp and colored it in using my alcohol markers, Touch Five.




I then used Versamark ink and some clear embossing powder to give this a really shiny look. I used the ink pad directly to the panel, poured on the powder and heat set it. 



I decided to make this into a shaker card so die cut a frame and my sentiments. As you can see the frame was originally going to be black but I decided after applying it, I wanted it in the purple color I ultimately ended with. 


I used several foam squares and trimmed them narrowly and made a well for my shaker elements.



I then applied my clear acetate window and the frame I made using the purple cardstock and a banner die. The last thing was to adhere my sentiments and this card is complete!




Thank you for visiting today! Please make sure you take a moment to leave me some comments below, I really appreciate it!

Don't forget to visit the other designers as they have some amazing cards to share!

Hanukkah Wheel Card

So today I wanted to share a really quick and easy card I created. And when I say quick and easy I really mean it. It was designed in less than 30 minutes and the entire project is print and cut so no need to find any patterned paper.










I took a 4.25 by 5.5 rectangle and cut out a window for the sentiment as well as a shape on the right to turn the wheel. I also made a shape for the bottom and then made a wavy round circle the same width as the rectangle. As you can see from this photo I added the words; Beautiful, Bright, Happy and Wonderful to the circle. 











For the card I set it up to print HAVE A above the window and HANUKKAH below it.















Again I used my Silhouette Cameo and used a pattern fill to get the paper these colors which I think came out nicely. I put the bottom on top of the base and also added a menorah that I already had.





Here you can see I inserted a yellow brad into the center hole of the panel as well as the circle.






Here is a shot of the back with the foam tape I added, making sure not to touch the wheel.






I then added that entire panel to an awaiting 4.25 x 5.5 inch white cardbase.



And that was it! Really quick and easy but also a lot of fun to make and play with!
