Hide a shaker element behind a sliding panel for a fun surprise.

Supplies

  • Stamps (Altenew Baby Zoo, Simon Says Stamp It’s No Secret, Clear Dollar stamps used here)
  • Nesting rectangle or square dies (3 largest Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles used here)
  • Ink (Altenew Blush, Soft Lilac, Dusk, Sea Glass, Buttercream, Caramel Toffee, Mountain Mist and Hero Arts Charcoal, Soft Granite used here)
  • Stamp positioner (MISTI used here)
  • Hole Punch (Cropadile used here)
  • Scissors
  • Tab die (Papertrey Ink die used here
  • Die cutting machine
  • Paper trimmer
  • Acetate or clear packaging (Papertrey Ink Clear Cardstock used here)
  • Medium to heavy-weight cardstock (Papertrey Ink cardstock used here)
  • Scrap cardstock large enough for tab die (Papertrey ink Lemon Tart used here)
  • 1/8” wide double-sided tape (Scor-Tape used here)
  • Fun foam (Michaels brand used here)
  • Sequins, beads, confetti, glitter (custom mix with bits from Lucy’s Little Things and various used here)
  • Ribbon (Stampin’ Up! White taffeta used here)
  • Pencil (2H pencil used to make erasing easy)
  • White eraser (Staedtler brand used here)
  • Washi or removable tape

Step-by-Step

  1. Step 1

    Use a paper trimmer to cut a full sheet of cardstock in half to create a card base. Cut the remaining piece into two 4.25” x 5.5” panels. Score the card base to form a 4.25” x 5.5” card. (Card base orientation doesn’t matter - your choice.)

  2. Step 2

    Stamp the card base with your choice of design, and repeat for the two 4.25" x 5.5” panels. They all need to match identically, so use your stamp positioner.

  3. Step 3

    To create the frame, choose three adjacent dies from a nesting set. There needs to be at least 1/2” between the largest and smallest dies. Tape the largest and smallest dies together, spaced them evenly. Center the dies on one of the 4.25” x 5.5” panels and cut. If you don’t have nesting dies, cut a centered frame from one of the panels. Be sure the frame is even and at least 1/2” wide on all sides.

  4. Step 4

    Keeping the dies taped together, cut the same frame from fun foam.

  5. Step 5

    Using only the largest die, cut a piece of acetate. If you don’t have dies, cut the acetate to the same size as the outer dimensions of your frame.

  6. Step 6

    Create the pull-out panel. From the remaining 4.25” x 5.5” panel, partially die cut a rectangle with your medium sized die, centering it carefully. Do NOT cut all the way to the top of the panel - you want to extend the rectangle's height. The best way to do this is to leave the top of the die outside of your cutting plates.

  7. Now move your die to the other end of the panel lining up any details like stitching. (You can see this best by cutting away the excess cardstock from the area already die cut.) Place the die up as close to the top as it will go. When you cut, be sure to leave the bottom of the die outside your cutting plates. (If you don’t have dies, cut a rectangle out of the center of your remaining panel on the sides and bottom and do not cut the top.)

    NOTE:
    This panel needs to be 1/4” smaller than the frame cut in step 3. but it must be larger than the inside of the frame.

Twisted Pop-Up Card

by Dina Kowal

Create a pop-up card that opens with a twisting element.

Supplies

  • Cardstock
  • Coordinating paper
  • Strong adhesive (Tombow Mono Multi glue used here)
  • Scoring tool
  • Bone folder
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Other supplies as needed to complete the card (stylus, Impression Obsession DIE025 Mitten Die Set and CL606 Winter Silhouettes clear stamp set, white adhesive fun foam, Big Shot)

Step-by-Step

  1. Step 1

    Cut a card base, 4 1/4" x 11”.

    Score at 5 1/2" on the long side.

  2. Step 2

    Fold the cardstock into a top-fold A2 card. Decorate the card front as desired. (This can be done later but is easier to do at this time while the card base is flat.)

  3. NOTE:
    The inside panels can also be lined with paper at this time, however part of the panel will be covered by the pop-up mechanism. If you want more of this layer to show, wait until step 9 to line the inside of the card.

  4. Step 3

    Cut cardstock for the pop-up mechanism, 3” x 8”.

  5. Score down at the center of both sides – at 4” on the long side and 1 1/2" on the short side.

  6. Step 4

    Mark at 2 1/2" from each corner with a pencil, on the top and bottom edge of the cardstock.

  7. Score an X from mark to mark. The center of the X should match the center of the cardstock where the other score lines intersect.

  8. Step 5

    Burnish all score lines with a bone folder, folding both ways on each fold.

  9. Step 6

    Push the long center score lines toward each other until they meet. Fold the sides back. The center X should form triangles front and back, with the folded sections inside, folds together.

  10. The folded pop-up mechanism should look like this.

  11. Step 7

    Mark the center point on the fold of the card base, 2 1/8".

  12. Center and adhere one side of the pop-up mechanism, gluing only the triangular area. Close the card to be sure the point does not interfere with the fold.

  13. Step 8

    Add adhesive to the triangle facing upward, and close the card to adhere it into place.

  14. Allow the glue to dry, and test the pop-up mechanism by opening and closing the card.

  15. Step 9

    Cut two layering panels for the inside of the card, 4” x 5 1/4". Mark at 2” on the short side, and 2” down on each side. Cut from the side points up to the center point to shape panels that will fit inside the card and cover up the central part of the pop-up mechanism.

  16. Adhere the panels to the inside of the card.

  17. Step 10

    Cut cardstock for the focal piece, 3 3/4" x 11”.

    Score at 2 3/4" from each end on the back side, if the cardstock has an obvious front and back (print or texture).

  18. Flip the cardstock to the right side and score at 5 1/2".

  19. Step 11

    Fold the panel into a W shaped booklet and burnish the folds.

  20. Step 12

    Embellish the panels as desired.

    Each panel will accommodate an ATC sized panel, 2 1/2" x 3 1/2”.

  21. Step 13

    To assemble the card, center the booklet at the top of the open card, ends upward just inside the edge, with the back ‘page’ facing up.

  22. Step 14

    Apply adhesive to the pop-up mechanism as shown, above the fold on the right side, covering about 1” from the end.

  23. Close the card to apply the adhesive to the booklet. Allow the glue to dry before moving to the next step.

  24. Step 15

    Apply adhesive to the other side of the pop-up mechanism as shown, below the fold on the left side, covering about 1” from the end.

  25. Step 16

    Close the card, bringing the booklet to the card’s edge with the left side of the mechanism closed in on top of it.

  26. Press down to secure the adhesive and allow the project to dry completely.

  27. Step 17

    Complete the project.

  28. The card will fit in a standard A2 envelope. Depending on the thickness of the layers, it may need extra postage.

Variations

    For a notecard sized Twisted Pop-Up Card (3 1/2" x 5), follow the instructions above with the following changes:
    In Step 1, cut the card base to 3 1/2" x 10".
    In Step 9, cut the layering panels to 3 1/4" x 4 3/4". Mark at 1 5/8" for the diagonal cuts.
    In Step 10, cut the focal piece to 3" x 11".
    In Step 12, cut the layering panels to 2 1/2" x 2 3/4".

Coloring Contours

by Jennie Black

Add realism to colored images by shading contours and shapes. These concepts can be applied to other coloring media as well.

Supplies

  • Printed or stamped image (Power Poppy Cone Flower digital stamp used here)
  • Copic compatible ink (printer, or Memento dye ink)
  • Copic friendly cardstock (Neenah Super Smooth Cardstock used here)
  • Watercolor brush filled with rubbing alcohol or Copic blender refill
  • Copic or other alcohol markers
  • Burlap or other textured fabric

Step-by-Step

  1. Step 1

    Add a background to the image first, to prevent pulling color from the image into the background later. Create a palette by scribbling marker ink onto a piece of acetate. (BG25 used here)

  2. Fill a waterbrush with rubbing alcohol or Copic blender refill. Scoop up some color and begin painting your background. Add in another color here and there for variation.

    NOTE:
    A regular paintbrush dipped in rubbing alcohol can be used, but the alcohol evaporates more quickly.

  3. Step 2

    Take a piece of textured fabric such as burlap and wet it with alcohol or Copic blender refill. Lightly touch the background with the wet burlap.

  4. The color will bleach out, leaving a textured look.

  5. Step 3

    Look at the image and determine where the hills and valleys are. The valleys will get the darkest color, whereas the “hills” will get the lightest color or no color. Use our lightest marker to make a plan or map of where to color. This helps keep the highlight area where we want it. (E51 used here)

    TIPS:
    Make a plan to keep from getting sidetracked and covering up too much of the highlighted area. Be sure to leave plenty of white area, because you will use it up quickly in these small spaces. Leave twice as much white area as you think you will need.

  6. Step 4

    With a plan, it’s not so intimidating to start with the darkest color. Place your darkest color in the deepest valleys. (YR23 used here)

  7. Step 5

    Now blend in with a medium color. Start the stroke by softening the inside edge of the previous color. In other words, wet the edge of the previous color with the lighter marker. Use squiggle motions or small circular motions.

    NOTE:
    It’s very important that you do not bleach out the entire previous color - you just want to soften the inside edge. Pull the color towards the top of the hill, towards your highlight. (YR21 used here)

  8. Step 6

    Now use a lighter color and do the same as in the previous step. Soften the edge of the previous color without bleaching out the entire previous color. Use squiggle motions or tiny circles. Pull the color towards the highlight. (E51 used here)

    NOTE:

    If you are using four colors, complete the contour shape by very lightly pulling the two sides together using flicking motions from each side. Leave white space for a more dramatic highlight.

  9. Step 7

    For a cone shape, create a highlight in the center of the image. Here, the lightest area is towards the top of the center, because most likely a flower would have a secondary light source from above (the sun). Again, make a plan using the lightest marker. (E43 used here)

  10. Step 8

    Add the darkest color first in a half sphere shape (E47 used here).

  11. Step 9

    Add the next lighter marker (E44 used here). Soften the inside edge of the previous color and pull toward the highlight.

  12. Step 10

    Again, soften the inside edge of the previous color and work your way towards the highlight. (E43 used here)

  13. Step 11

    For the leaves, begin with the darkest color. (Because these spaces are narrow, creating a plan with the lightest color can oversaturate the area.) Put the darkest color in the center of each leaf. You can also use this color for any cast shadows where leaves are folded over, with the dark color on the back layer.

  14. Step 12

    Add your medium and light colors to finish up each leaf.

  15. Blend as before.

  16. Step 13

    Use the colored image to complete a card or other project.

Stitched Star Ornament

by Amy Kunkle

Stitch nested die cuts together for a unique ornament.

Supplies

  • Cardstock (double-sided patterned cardstock works best, DCWV Autumn Leaves 6" x 6" Paper Stack used here)
  • Nesting dies (any shape, Stampin’ Up!® Star Framelits used here)
  • Washi tape or quilters tape
  • 1/16” circle punch
  • Twine
  • Die cutting machine
  • Sewing machine

Step-by-Step

  1. Step 1

    Line up the nesting dies on the platform of your die cutting machine. Ensure your dies do not overlap, taking time to separate them evenly. Run through the machine.

    TIP:
    A magnetic platform is helpful for keeping the dies in place and spaced evenly.

  2. Step 2

    Carefully remove the dies from the paper, leaving the cut stars in place. If they fall apart, just put them back together like a puzzle.

  3. Step 3

    Use repositionable tape to tape down a line just to the right of the stars' center line. You will use this as a guide when you’re stitching, but mainly it will keep your stars together.

  4. Step 4

    Bring your stars over to your sewing machine and drop your needle in just above the top point of the star. This will get your stitches started. Sew through the middle of the your five stars.

  5. Step 5

    Carefully remove the cut stars from the outer cardstock, and take off your washi tape. If the thread doesn’t come apart from the outer star shape right away – just unthread it using your fingers. You can also free up the stars from each other, allowing them to spin/turn freely.

  6. Step 6

    Tie a double knot at the top and bottom of the star and trim off the excess thread.

  7. Step 7 (Optional)

    Punch the top of the star with a 1/16” hole punch and thread twine in to create a new loop for your ornament.

  8. Step 8

    Complete the project.

  9. Step 11

    Embellish the card as desired. For the sample, additional die cut leaves were added to the frame.

    NOTE:
    Be sure that embellishments do not hinder the spinner mechanism.
