The Rabbit Hole Designs Narly Shaker Card

I’m back again with another great caffeinated critter from The Rabbit Hole Designs. Today it’s a square shaker card featuring the Caffeinated Narwhal. I don’t make square cards often but it just struck me as perfect when I was planning the design of this card.

To make this card, I…

  • Stamped, colored, cut and set my narwhal aside.
  • I cut a circle frame and a sheet of acetate and glued them together. Then covered the back of the frame with a double layer of foam tape. This creates the shaker window.
  • I cut a square card base at 4.25×4.25 and adhered red wood grain paper to that. To complete the shaker part I added a pile of shaker bits to the center of the card and lined up my shaker window, sticking it down.
  • Next, I wrapped twine around the shaker window twice to cover the foam tape and give it a rustic look, then glued my narwhal and sentiment flag down.

I love the primary colors that came together for this card. It’s not a typical color palette for me but sometimes you just have to go back to the basics.

The Rabbit Hole Designs #Buzzed Bumblebee

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I’m sharing this wobbly rainbow Caffeinated Bee from The Rabbit Hole Designs. He’s hanging out on an action wobbler so he buzzes when you flick him. It’s great fun! Trust me…

To make this card, I…

  • Stamped, colored, cut my bee and set him aside.
  • Die cut cloud borders for the top and bottom of the card, stamped the sentiments and inked the edges with distress ink.
  • I stamped the caffeine molecules from my various caffeinated critters in rainbow order, skipping yellow because my bee is yellow.
  • I adhered the stamped background to a yellow card base and then popped the clouds up with foam tape.
  • Last, I added Wink of Stella glitter brush to the bee’s wings and popped him on the card with an action wobbler for a little interactive element on this fairly simple card.

He sticks up pretty far but compresses totally flat to fit in an envelope. Also, when you pull the card out of an envelope the bee naturally buzzes a little on its own to give the recipient a hint that he moves. Super fun!

Rabbit Hole Designs Pretty in Peony Thinking of You Card

Welcome back everyone! I’m over at The Rabbit Hole Designs blog today with this beautiful Pretty in Peony card.

Here’s how I did it:

  • Stamped, heat embossed, colored and cut my peonies and leaves.
  • Blended salty ocean distress ink starting in the center of a white panel working my way out.
  • Working my way up I layered the striped paper, black cardstock and inked white panel. Then adhered the peonies and leaves with glue and foam squares for dimension.
  • Last I heat embossed the sentiment in white on black cardstock and popped it up with a foam strip.
  • For finishing touches I added a scattering of clear sequins and ice blue stickles dots.

Such a bright cheery card to share with someone. And I can’t get enough of those peonies.

Here’s how I made it:

  • I stamped, colored, cut and then set aside my flamingo.
  • I stamped the flamingo in gray ink all over the card front and then stamped the sentiment on a thin green strip.
  • I popped the strip and flamingo up with foam squares and finished the card off by scattering pink and green Nuvo Crystal Drops across the card.

The Rabbit Hole Designs August Release Blog Hop – Stencils

Welcome back to The Rabbit Hole Designs hop for the August release – Day 3! Today I’m sharing two cards using one of the new, fabulous stencils – circles and stars! They are 6×6 and are great for so many different techniques. Be sure to hop so you can see them all!

Sassy is back for this card featuring the new circles and stars stencil for it’s background. Here’s how I did it.

  • I cut an over-sized panel of blue cardstock and taped it to my work surface, then taped the stars and circles stencil on top. Then, I spread a layer of texture paste over the whole thing. Once it dried I cut it down to fit the card front.
  • I stamped, colored and cut a unicorn, clouds and sentiment from Sassy and set them aside.
  • I cut 2 cloud borders, one from vellum and one from cardstock and glued them to the stenciled panel. The white clouds are popped up with foam tape.
  • Next I added the images and finished things off with wink of stella glitter brush pen and a jewel for the “i” in unicorn.

Up close you can see the dimension the texture paste gives. It’s a fun and different way to use stencils and you can color it too! Endless possibilities.

Next up are the pups from the July release in Doggone and some ink blending with the new stencil.

Here’s how I did this one.

  • Stamped, colored and cut the pups and set them aside.
  • Ink blended distress inks for a rainbow effect on the card front.
  • Cut a frame and glued a piece of woodgrain paper for a floor. This is glued directly to the card front.
  • The pups and sentiment are popped up with foam squares and I finished it off with glossy accents on the dog noses.

I’m just starting to up my stencil game and can’t wait to try other techniques and the other designs.

The Rabbit Hole Designs August Release Blog Hop – Inky

Welcome back to The Rabbit Hole Designs hop for the August release – Day 2! Today I’m sharing two cards with the new set called Inky! I love making under water cards so this set was right up my alley!

I’ve been wanting to make one of those really long cards that are so popular and this set seemed like the perfect opportunity. Here’s how I did it.

  • Stamped, colored and cut all 3 octopi from Inky and the fish from Mermaid Hair and set them aside.
  • Ink blended a panel for the front of the card, cut a wave border from the top and glued it to the card front.
  • Next I adhered the fish to the water panel and popped the octopi up with foam squares.
  • Last, I stamped the sentiment and cut a flag notch, then popped it up as well.

After that busy card I thought I would try my hand at a more clean and simple design being sure to use the ink splatter because I thought they were funny.

Here’s how I did this one:

  • Stamped, colored and cut the octopus and set him aside.
  • Die cut the grid frame 4 times and glued them together. I took one set of the negative inserts and colored them with copics.
  • I glued the frame and inserts to a white panel where I stamped the ink blot and sentiment in black. Then I glued the octopus to the grid frame.

I just love this stamp set. It’s got great punny sentiments and awesome images that I can’t wait to use!

Rabbit Hole Designs Guest Designer – Caffeinated Narwhal Box Card

Welcome back and thanks for stopping by! I’m guest designing for The Rabbit Hole Designs today and so happy to be sharing this awesome Caffeinated Narwhal box card. The Caffeinated Narwhal is available today in the shop so head over and snatch yours up!

Here’s how I did it:

  • I started by die cutting all the pieces I needed.
    • main box card (2) – blue cardstock
    • stitched squares for the small (2) and large (1) flaps – white cardstock
    • stitched square for the back panel – white cardstock
    • stitched hill insert – white cardstock
    • stitched wave insert – white cardstock
    • seaweed, seashells and sea stars – white cardstock
  • Next, I ink blended all of the white cardstock pieces accordingly – blue for the waves and background, brown for the sand and hill, green for the seaweed, orange for the seashells and pink for the sea stars.
  • I cut, stamped and colored my Caffeinated Narwhal and then assembled my box and images.
  • Once it was all put together, I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment on black cardstock and cut it into a thin strip. This is a long sentiment from the Perfectly Blended stamp set so I cut it into pieces so I could fit it on the front flap. I also heat embossed the smaller #stabby from the Caffeinated Narwhal set and attached it to the back panel by the narwhal.

This card turned out so cool! I love how box cards fold up and fit in an envelope to surprise the recipient with 3-D awesomeness! I can’t wait to pop this one in the mail and make someone smile.

The Rabbit Hole Designs Handmade Brew Card Set – Instagram GIVEAWAY

Happy Saturday everyone! Thanks so much for stopping by! Today I’m sharing a simple set of cards I made with a gift with purchase set from The Rabbit Hole Designs called Handmade Brew. I received mine when I made my first purchase with them. Don’t have one yet? Don’t worry, head over to my Instagram where I’m giving one away plus some other fun goodies.

These cards were simple to make. Here’s how I made them:

  • Blended distress inks on the background panel and heat set them.
  • Stamped the coffee cup with versa mark ink on the bottom right corner and heat embossed in white. Then did the same with a different sentiment on each card from Perfectly Blended.
  • Next, I stamped the coffee cup randomly around the rest of the card with versa mark ink and let it dry overnight. This gives a subtle watermark look.
  • I cut a mat for each card in a matching or contrasting color and adhered the layers together. I tied white twine around the bottom portion and glued this whole thing to a card base.
  • For finishing touches I scattered Nuvo Crystal Drops and small heart confetti in matching colors throughout the backgrounds.

These are a super fun set of cards that would be great to give as a gift.

Don’t forget to head over to my Instagram and enter the giveaway. Winner will be chosen Monday, July 22. This giveaway is not sponsored by Instagram or The Rabbit Hole Designs.
