Follow Your Dreams

Hey Y'all!!!  So excited to showcase another a beautiful card as part of the Design Team for Scrappy Tails Crafts.  I'm showcasing one of the new die sets from Scrappy Tails Crafts ‘Midsummer Night's Dream‘ collection.  Such a beautiful cover plate with the stitched clouds.  Includes plenty of clouds and stars to create a beautiful card.  This card has a beautiful inside scene that pops right up and off the card.  This is available in my Etsy store HERE!  All the details for making this card yourself are below (including links).

 

 

 

Check out this set of fun dies from Scrappy Tails Crafts ‘Midsummer Night's Dream‘ collection.

 

I saw a fun video from Jennifer McGuire Inks and that's the basis for this card.  Loved the way the inside popped open to a beautiful scene.

You can catch Jennifer's video HERE.

 

 

How beautiful all the pieces are in the ‘A7 Cloud Frame Cover Plate‘.  A large cover plate creates a cloud frame to add a beautiful outside dimension to your card.  Love the clouds.  Two dies (a background and edge) make up each one.  You can use them together or separately.  I've used them together.  Then choose whether you'd like to add stars, a moon or other elements.

 

The card base is cut from Stampin' UP!'s ‘Balmy Blue‘ card stock.  Layered on top of the base are a background of Whimsy Stamps ‘Mermaid' 6 x 6 paper.  Bummer because it's retired!  The top layer is the frame from the ‘A7 Cloud Frame Cover Plate‘ in Stampin' UP!'s ‘Basic White‘ card stock.

 

The sentiment is from Scrappy Tails Crafts ‘Fairy Sentiments‘ stamp set.  Lots of beautiful sentiments to put together in a variety of ways.

Collab Hop with Scrappy Tails & Pear Blossom – Magical!

 

Hey Y'all!!!  Welcome to the Scrappy Tails and Pear Blossom Press Collab Hop! Today, we’re sharing lots of whimsical cards that will really brighten your day. They feature dreamy new stamps and dies from Scrappy Tails, and with a little help from Pear Blossom Press, they all light up!  Be sure to hop along with us for lots of inspiration; our designers have come up with some stunning cards…  You'll find links to the next designer in the Hop farther down in my blog post.

 

Guess what happens when you ‘PRESS HERE”???

The windows and door light up.  How cool is that and so easy to do.

 

 

This Magical card was created using Scrappy Tails Crafts stamp sets, dies and Pear Blossom Presses EZ-Light.

 

You'll find all the specifics in the PDF of my ingredients below but I started with the absolutely cool ‘Slimline Birdhouse Pop Up‘ and ‘Slimline Fairy House Add-on‘ dies from Scrappy Tails Crafts.

 

 

Once I had created the beautiful fairy house, I added the beautiful fairy to welcome you, the mushrooms and cute frog from Scrappy Tails Crafts ‘Fairy Friends‘ stamp set.

The background features clouds and grass using the ‘Slimline Everyday Borders II‘ dies.

 

 

Before I attached the Fairy House to the beautiful background I attached the Pear Blossom Press ‘EZ-Lights'.  So FUN!!!

Just attached them with tape, glue or whatever adhesive is your favorite.  Attach the battery and button close to the edge of the card and add your own ‘Press Here' button.  Make sure you leave enough room for foam tape to pop the house up and leave room for the lights and battery.
