Hi all my crafty, creative friends!
Today I thought I would drop by and share one of my latest fun 3D cards.
My Grandad turned 94 yesterday, and I always like to make them something a bit more special! My Nan really appreciates them! Lol.
So for this card I used a Bronwyn Eastley Tutorial – Mermaid Shaker Shadow Box Card. Bronwyn’s tutorials are really easy to follow, with plenty of step by step instructions, including pictures! You can take a look at here tutorials right HERE.
I adapted Bronwyn’s design and used my Seaside Shore Stamp Set to create my Seaside Shore Shadow Box Shaker Card!
Adding a shaker element to a shadow box was so much fun! I can guarantee that this won’t be the only one of these types of cards I create! In fact – I’m already working on design number 2! Who wouldn’t when you can create so much fun!
The Designer Paper used for this card is from the Myths and Magic Specialty DSP. It’s a thicker card, making it sturdier and perfect to create these type of box cards!
These cards also fit perfectly into a normal C6 envelope! So you can even post them! I added a white panel to the back of my card to write my birthday message!
I hope you like it!
Happy Crafting everyone!
I am so excited to share my Seaside Shore 3D Fish Tank Card with you all, that I honestly couldn’t wait and had to post about it TODAY!
Our Team – Eureka Stampers – has been set a challenge this week from our amazing leader.
She has challenged us to create SOMETHING every day for the first week of October. She sets a specific challenge everyday, and we create something according to tat challenge! You may have already seen one I have shared on my Facebook Page – My Paper Oasis.
Todays challenge was to create something using EVERY SINGLE STAMP in one set! Have you ever thought about such a task. I realised the difficulty I was facing when rummaging through my sets to decide which stamp set to use. So many actually have multiple sentiments that would make them tricky to use for this challenge. The more I looked, the more I realised just how tricky this was going to be!
After LOTS of consideration I decided to choose our Seaside Shore Stamp Set. It only had two sentiments and a host of stamps that coordinate really well together. But I really wanted to do something Fancy! So I started playing around with ideas in my head, and came up with using one of Bronwyn Eastley’s Tutorials for my design team project this month. The tutorial I used to create my fish tank was none other than her Spring Planter Box Card!
Huh? I hear you ask – pop over to her tutorial shop HERE and see her brilliant design for yourself!
I basically used her Box Base to create the base of my Fish Tank. Check it out –
I cannot tell you just how much fun this was to create! The most difficult part was photographing the Fish Tank! But I gave it a good try so you could see all the angles!
And from the top :
And you are going to love the next bit … it even folds flat for postage! This one is in a 6″ x 6″ envelope. The top will need adjusting slightly – or you could make your own using our Envelope Punch Board.
Bronwyn’s tutorials really are versatile. I simply added Window Sheets at the same measurements as the box base (although I did have to trim a very small bit off one end for it to fit snuggly) and then filled it up with all the images from the stamp set as per our team challenge!
I truly hope you love it as much as I do! I would love to hear what you think – so feel free to leave me a comment 🙂
