Make A Wish

July 1, 2021

Yesterday on my Facebook Live, I made a couple of cards using the Give It A Whirl Dies which are a new product in the current Annual Catalogue. I love the idea of moving parts on my card, so I decided to buy the dies and have a try. The dies do not co-ordinate with any specific stamp sets and they don’t come with any instructions. I watched a few videos before embarking on my creating. For my card today, I cut Basic Black card using the Basic Borders Dies, this creates two pieces at the one time. I attached one die cut behind a piece of the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper. I attached the panel to a standard Basic White card front and then used the card front die from the Give it a Whirl Dies to cut out the shape. I love that it comes with a stitched border to give it a little more detail. At the same time, I cut out the basic card front, I attached the circle die and cut the circle window.

I also cut the circle mechanism from Basic White card. I didn’t cut my window in the centre of the card front, and so I had to do a little playing to get the stamped greetings right. I stamped, Make a Wish from the Party Puffins stamp set, the candle image from the Party Puffins stamp set and the cake image from the Party Puffins stamp set into the “window” space using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured the images where necessary using Bermuda Bay and Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin Blends. I pierced a hole through the centre of the circle piece I cut from the card front and used a brad to attach it to the back of the mechanism. I added a dimensional to each side of the brad. I lined up the mechanism behind the card front and attached it to Bermuda Bay card.

The Bermuda Bay panel is attached to scored and folded Thick Basic White card. I cut the frame for the circle from Basic Black card and attached it around the circle on the card front. I added dimensionals onto the back of the card front panel in the corners only and attached it to the card front over the machanism. Sounds a little complicated but really isn’t. I stamped the puffin from the Party Puffins stamp set onto Basic White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, coloured the image using the Light Bermuda Bay and Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. I cut out the image and attached it to the card front. To decorate the inside of the card I stamped “happy birthday” from the Party Puffins stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Basic White card.

I stamped the fish image from the Party Puffin stamp set onto scrap Basic White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I masked the fish with a post-it-note and stamped the puffin image over the top using the same ink. I removed the mask and coloured the image using Light Smoky Slate, Light Bermuda Bay and Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. I cut out the image and attached it beside the stamped “happy birthday”. I attached the remaining die cut created using the Basic Borders Dies behind a piece of the same Pattern Party Designer Series Paper I used on the front of the card. The panel is attached across the bottom of the stamped Basic White card.

If you haven’t been inspired to use these dies, please feel free to watch my video or search for more on Pinterest. You might be surprised at how much fun these dies can be.

Bye for now,

Kris
