Dino Birthday Card

Hello my crafty friends!!

I am excited to share this card with you all. It is a Dino themed birthday card that I created for my son’s 5th birthday. There is a coordinating process video on YouTube.

The card base I used is 6 x 6 inches and the inner frame measures 5 3/4 x 5 3/4 inches. The window was cut out with a rectangular die measuring 4 1/2 x 3 1/4 inches.

To create this card I used the following supplies:

  • White 6 x 6 inch precut and folded card base with envelope: My stash
  • Green cardstock: My stash
  • Rectangle die: Spellbinders Nestabilities Card creator dies Matting basics
  • Kraft cardstock: COLORBÖK Neutral
  • Green textured foam sheet: My stash
  • Cloud dies: WhiteLotus
  • Grass border die: Anna Griffin Paisley pattern folders and dies
  • Birthday sentiment stamps: Letterit Clear stamps by Ranger
  • Jolee’s Boutique 3d dinosaur stickers
  • Washi tape: My stash
  • ScorTape: My stash
  • Non-stick scissors: Westcott
  • Fiskars paper trimmer
  • 2″ hole punch: My stash
  • Foam tape: My stash
  • Tape runner: Xyron
  • Walnut Stain Distress ink
  • Ink blending tool and foam pad
  • Pencil: My stash
  • Aleene’s Tacky glue
  • JudiKin’s embossable acetate
  • Stamp Perfect tool by Hampton Art

To create the window background, I used a piece of pattern paper large enough to cover the window frame and adhered it to the card base. For the small trees I cut a piece of scrap corrugated cardboard and topped it with some of the plant stickers in the sticker set. For the large trees I hand cut trunks and used a 2″ hole punch to cut out the leaves. I used wet glue to hold the leaves in place at the top of the tree trunk. Using the border dies, I made grass from the textured foam sheet. Then I added a 3D dino sticker. Finally, I used the cloud dies to add clouds to my sky using tape and foam tape for dimension.

For my window frame I used a rectangle die to cut out the window and a sheet of acetate to cover the opening. I used foam tape to adhere my window to the base over the background below. I then added a strip of grass cut out with the grass border die and finally I added more 3D dino and plant stickers.

As the sentiment, I stamped “Happy Birthday” onto green cardstock and trimmed it then cut out a fishtail and adhered it to the top of the card above my window scene.

To finish off the card I added another sentiment on the inside of the card onto a piece of green cardstock. I initially tried to stamp directly onto the card base but as y ou can see in the video, that did not work out so well! I also added a couple of 3D Dino stickers on the inside and a 3D plant.

Until next time!!! XoXo

Wood Stamp to Cling Stamp

Hello hello crafty friends!!

I am excited to share with you all how I converted my wood mounted stamps to cling stamps. I recently saw a fellow FB group member say she was doing this and I have been wanting to make this conversion for so long and did not know how that I could not resist! I watched her recommended video as well as a few others (these links can be found in the description section of my YouTube video for this project) and combined what I learned from them to create my own method.

Snapshot_242Snapshot_243

I begin by taking the wood stamps that I want to convert and stamping their images onto cardstock. I also use a Micron marker to write down the brand of the stamp and it’s name for reference.

Once they are all stamped I set the images aside and begin removing the rubber stamp, trying to keep the attached foam with it. If the foam breaks or will not come off it is ok to only remove the rubber without the foam. This can still be converted into a cling stamp.

Next I take Aleene’s Tack-It Over  & Over ( found on Amazon here) repositionable adhesive and apply it to the backs of the foam of the removed rubber and foam stamps. I use a wedge make-up sponge to do this and just make sure they all have a thing even coat. I leave the plain rubber stamps with no foam to convert later using a different method.

While they dry I return to my stamped cardstock and cut out each stamped image. They could alternately be kept all on one sheet. I separate them in case I want to categorize them or create specified sets.

I now grab a sheet of clear cling vinyl by Grafix (found on hereon Amazon) and stick my foam rubber stamps onto the vinyl side of the sheet. I then use nonstick scissors to trim them out, cutting as close to the rubber as possible. Once they are all trimmed out I remove the release backing for the vinyl leaving the vinyl adhered to the back of the foam.

Here you can see the now cling stamp on an acrylic block and it gives a perfect impression.

Above I am taking a Scotch Thermal Laminating pouch and cutting it to 5 1/2 x 8″. I open the 2 sides of the pouch and lay my stamped images in between on the matte side of the pouch. Once they are all laid out how I want I fold a piece of copy paper and sandwich my thermal pouch with it’s contents in the fold of the paper. Then I insert that, folded end first, into my Minc which I am using as a laminator.

Snapshot_257Snapshot_258

Using my corner chomper I round those sharp corners and then I stick my rubber stamps onto the slick surface of the laminated sheets according to their image.

Snapshot_261

I can now store these the same way I store all of my cling and clear stamps. I purchased these pouches on Amazon in a 100pk (find them here). For details on making the plain rubber stamps into cling stamps and for additional links please visit the tutorial on the YouTube channel.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I am looking forward to the next post where I let you know all about my upcoming GIVEAWAY!

Until next time! XoXo
