DT Teresa - All About The Men 2

Hello Everyone!

Today I have another card "All About the Men" to share with you.

This card uses Neenah Classic Crest 110# Smooth Solar White Cardstock for the base which is cut with a paper trimmer at 4 1/4" x 11" and scored with a teflon bone folder at 5 1/2" to make a side folding card of 5 1/2" x 4 1/4".




I die cut four white frames from My Favorite Things Blueprints 27 with a Sizzix Big Shot Machine from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Smooth Solar White Cardstock and one black cardstock frame to form a stacked layer and adhered this with Ranger Multi Medium Matte to the centre of the card front. 

I used the same die to die cut the inserts of the frame from Simon Says Stamp Seaglass cardstock. I placed these pieces in a MISTI and stamped them with the Hero Arts Waves Background stamp in My Favorite Things Berrylicious Hybrid Ink. I stamped the sentiments in onto each piece, using Versafine Onyx Black ink and then die cut the varying size waves into each piece with Lawn Fawn Ocean Wave Accents. I tucked the images from Lawn Fawn Duh-Nuh  into these die cut waves after stamping them in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colouring them with Copic Markers on X-Press It Blending card.



I placed each piece into the frame and propped up the head of the shark with a little 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. The googly eyes from my stash were then adhered and I swirled some Zig Wink of Stella, Clear onto all the shark images to complete this comic strip style card.




Thankyou for following along with me today. If you cannot find the items I have used (listed below) in the Auzz Trinklets and Crafts store, be sure to drop Neha a message via email or Facebook and she will do what she can to order the product in for you.

DT Deni - All about the men 2

Hi Everyone, DT Deni with you today.

I made this card for a little Boys birthday using Fireman Luka from La La Land Crafts, he is coloured up using Copic Markers (sorry I don't have these listed as I coloured this one a while ago).

 I have used Stitched Circle dies from Lawn Fawn to cut the circle.

Sentiment is stamped using Clearly Besotted - Sweet Little Sentiments, I have used Memento Tuxedo Black ink and a Lawn Fawn Acrylic Block.

I have cut the number using My Favorite Things By The Number dienamics and just some leftover yellow cardstock.

Papers are from Doodlebug, cardstock are a mixture of Kaisercraft and American Crafts. I have used Scotch ATG to adhere all the bigger layers and Tombow Mono Multi to adhere the small areas.

DT Kerry - All about the Men

Hi there,

Kerry here today with a, better late than never submission.

I hope everyone enjoyed their Father's Day. Our kids spoilt their dad with a cup of tea in bed and pancakes. He opened all their handmade crafty items they made at school along with this card. His comments were "Ooo it's got lots of sparkly bits....and layers"

Which is exactly the effect I was looking to achieve :) I wanted it to appear as though the plane was flying through the clouds. 


I used Lawn Fawn's Plane and Simple stamp set for the plane and little clouds and the Puffy Cloud Border dies to cut the 4 layers of clouds for the inside of the window and the outside edge.  The Small Stitched Oval Stackable die came in handy to cut the window which I placed a piece of acetate behind to create the shaker.  The Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks blended beautifully to shade a sunset/sunrise background - the colours I used were Fossilized Amber, Worn Lipstick and Broken China.  I just love how the blue and pink blend together to give you that purple hue.


After I had sprinkled in my "Little Things by Lucy's Cards" sequin mix and closed up my shaker, I adhered "dad" to the front.  These were also a Lawn Fawn item, Quinn's ABCs" die cut letters cut from some American Crafts glitter card.


Using the LF Small Stitched envelope die, I carried through the theme with a gift card holder.  I once again used Lawn Fawn products, the Perfectly Plaid Rainbow paper pack.  I continued with the glittery detail by die cutting the "enjoy" to stick on the front and a nice touch with the smoke heart ring on the back.









I hope you enjoyed this card and found some inspiration for a more masculine project.


Enjoy your weekend all!
Kerry x

DT Deni - All About The Men

Hi Everyone!

DT Deni here :-)


Hope all the men in your lives (and those acting as a mutual parent) had a great Father's Day last weekend. I worked all weekend but was able to have dinner with my Dad on Saturday night and celebrated my Fiance's Father's Day with socks and jocks on Sunday night lol. My kids both spent the day with their Dad.

This month we are celebrating "Men and boys", not just Father's but men in general.

I have created a card for a Dad using a Clear stamp from Penny Black and designed by Mo Manning called "Daddy's Shoes". I have loved this stamp for a while and was finally able to get Auzz Trinklets to track it down for me :-)



I die cut a Wonky Window from the My Favorite Things Peek A Boo Wonky Window Die, I wanted to keep the window in one piece so I carefully turned it over and used Scotch Magic Tape across the back. I cut this using Mondi Color Copy.. I was originally planning to stamp over the top and colour with Copic Markers but my idea didn't work out the way I thought it was going to so I had to rethink my design.

I stamped a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Friendship Messages clear stamps using Memento Tuxedo Black onto the square inlay, I used the Misti Stamping tool to do this as it was already out on my desk.

I ended up stamping the image separately and carefully fussy cutting (using EK Success Cutterbee scissors) it out so I could attach it over the top of my Wonky Window. I stamped the image using Memento tuxedo black and coloured the image using Copic Markers (listed below)

I cut the DAD letters from Lawn Fawn Cole's ABC's and some scraps of Canson Cardstock using my Sizzix Big Shot.

Patterned papers are from Kaisercraft  On the Move Collection paper pad, all cut using Cutterpillar Pro.

DT Teresa - All About The Men

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to our month of celebrating All About The Men! 

I think many of us struggle with creating a masculine themed card and hopefully we can provide you with some inspiration throughout September here on the Auzz Trinklets and Crafts blog.

Bold and graphic are elements I think of when it comes to a masculine design. I kept things fairly simple here as the stamp really does all the work for me on this card.

This card uses Neenah Classic Crest 110# Smooth Solar White Cardstock for the base which is cut with a paper trimmer at 4 1/4" x 11" and scored with a teflon bone folder at 5 1/2" to make a top folding card of 5 1/2" x 4 1/4".



The Concord & 9th turnabout stamps are a revelation. I used the Concord & 9th Triangle Turnabout stamp on this card and it was so fun to play with. There is a little bit of prep to using these stamps, so be sure to check out the You Tube video they have on their channel to learn what you need to do.

I may have mentioned this before, but for all the fabulous techniques that can be done with Ranger Distress Oxide Inks, I simply love stamping with them! For this background I used Wild Honey (yum!), Peacock Feathers, Faded Jeans and Fired Brick. I stamped with a MISTI onto a 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" Neenah Classic Crest 80# Smooth Solar White Cardstock piece and trimmed it down to 
4 1/8" x 5 1/2" to fit the card front, bar a sliver on the right where I placed a strip of Simon Says Stamp 100# Soft Navy Cardstock




I used the same cardstock to cut a strip for the sentiment and the top piece of the 'stars' word die. The sentiment was stamped in Versamark Ink from My Favorite Things Written in the Stars and heat embossed with Ranger Embossing Powder, White after swiping the cardstock with EK Tools Powder Tool to prep the surface. 

I then diecut the word 'stars' with the Sizzix Big Shot Machine from My Favorite Things Shining Stars using Neenah Classic Crest 80# Smooth Solar White Cardstock and stacked these together using Ranger Multi Medium Matte, placing the navy piece on top and adhering to the card. I then adhered the sentiment strip above and the card was complete.

Perhaps it is unconventional to have not included some stars on my card, but sometimes unexpected can be fun. What do you think?


Thankyou for following along with me today. If you cannot find the items I have used (listed below) in the Auzz Trinklets and Crafts store, be sure to drop Neha a message via email or Facebook and she will do what she can to order the product in for you.


Happy crafting and have a great day!

DT Deni - Animals 3


Hi guys,

Dt Deni here,

I was asked by a friend to make some cards for her Aunty and Mum. They just fit the animal theme perfectly so thought I would share them here also. Oh - and I was actually writing down what I was writing while I was making which I don't do normally unless i'm specifically working on something for a Design Team.

 



Anyway, I used two stamp sets from My Favorite Things, I used Farm-tastic and PI Green Pastures. They worked so perfectly together.

I inked the images up using Memento Tuxedo Black, stamped them using my Misti Stamping Tool on 250GSM Mondi Color Copy.




I coloured the images using Copic Markers which will be listed below with the product list.

 I first stamped the PI Green Pastures, I then masked off the sections I was planning on stamping over using Post It Notes. I then stamped the animals (whether it be the Pig or The Chicken), I cut a mask for the animals and then stamped the fence.

I cut the scene out using a Lawn Fawn Stitched Square die on my Sizzix Big Shot.

I then stamped the sentiment onto a scrap of Black cardstock using Versamark Watermark Ink (I prepped the cardstock first using a Powder Tool), I added the Ranger embossing powder in white and melted it using my heat tool.

Papers are from Kaisercraft Cock-a-Doodle-Doo, the blue cardstock is Canson. I also cut out the blue 50 using the Canson Cardstock MFT Little Numbers. I coated the numbers using Wink Of Stella Clear Glitter Brush, everything was attached using Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue and Scotch ATG.

DT Deni - Animals 2

Hi everyone,

DT Deni here with an animal card featuring Art Impressions Doggy Kisses set.

I also have a video to share on this card - you can see it here.


The images were stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black on Misti Stamping Tool and after I decided to restart the sentiment I used a Lawn Fawn Acrylic block.

I have coloured the image using Copic Markers (listed below), I have put the card together using papers from Studio Calico Here and There collection.

This card was made for a friend of mine who had surgery recently so I'll be popping it into the mail for her today, sometimes a small gesture can make a world of difference.



Hope you guys have enjoyed all the Design Teams animal projects this month the girls have definitely put on a show for us.

DT Teresa - Animals 2

Hello Everyone!

I am back with my second "Animal" project for the month - winter is almost over - yay!!

This card uses Neenah Classic Crest 110lb Smooth Solar White Cardstock for the base which is cut with a paper trimmer at 4 1/4" x 11" and scored with a teflon bone folder at 5 1/2" to make a side folding card of 5 1/2" x 4 1/4".





I cut four frames from My Favourite Things Blueprints 27 with a Sizzix Bigshot Machine and stacked them together, adhering with Ranger Multi Medium Matte. I then glued the stamped and die cut cats from My Favorite Things Smitten Kitten (stamped with Memento Tuxedo Ink, coloured with copic markers onto X-Press It cardstock) in place onto the front of the frame. I diecut some American Crafts glitter cardstock in a purple shade with the same frame for the squares and adhered them to the back of the images. 

I cut a piece of white cardstock and coloured the edges using a Ranger Mini Ink Blending Tool with Distress Oxide Ink, Seedless Preserves and adhered the frame to the centre of this piece. I then adhered a piece of white cardstock cut with the frame die into the rectangle opening.



I used the My Favorite Things You Trio to diecut 'YOU' three times from white cardstock and once from glitter cardstock, stacked the letters and adhered these in place.

I went back to the My Favorite Things Blueprints 27 and used the small fishtail banner for the sentiment from My Favorite Things Smitten Kitten. I stamped the sentiment in Distress Oxide Ink, Seedless Preserves with my MISTI  and then stamped it again with Versamark Ink on top. I heat embossed it with Ranger Clear Embossing Powder using a Wagner Heat ToolI then added the sentiment onto the card.



Once the piece was added to the card base, I added a tiny amount of Ranger Enamel Accents, Black to the eyes of the cats and Ranger Glossy Accents to their noses to complete the card.

DT Kerry - Animals 2

Hi, Kerry here back with another "animals" themed project.... Unicorns are animals aren't they?! 😉

I still haven't had enough of the Pop-up Box die so I made another card for you today.

I tried to make the unicorn appear as though it's flying in the clouds and the rainbow floating within the fluffiness (by using pieces of acetate and vellum). The little fairy is just adorable and an extra touch of whimsy. I used my Zig Brush Markers to colour the rainbow on some Tim Holtz water colour cardstock as they have the brightest saturation out of all my water colour mediums.

To make the "wishes" script stand out a little more I popped up it up with some fun foam.  I die cut some additional clouds, added some silver embossing and a touch of Wink of Stellar and voila, done.








Happy crafting everyone!

DT Deni - Animals

Good Afternoon Everyone,

DT Deni here today sharing a card with you following on from our theme of "Animals" for the month of August.

I have used a stamp set from Stampendous House Mouse Collection called Cling Balloon Surprise.

The image has been stamped on Mondi Color Copy 250GSM with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink using Misti Stamping Tool (with rubber removed).


I must say how impressed I was with this stamp, I don't think I have ever used any of these stamps previously but the stamping of this image was absolutely spectacular..it was a crisp clean stamp and I was super impressed with the details on the first stamping in that I didn't even need to stamp it a second time.

I coloured up the image using Copic Markers. I did have a Copic Colouring and Process Video but unfortunately lost it all in the editing process, can't even tell you how upset I was :-(, after many days of computer issues I was slightly let down.

**EDIT - How lucky am I!! I found my videos and was able to save them woohoo! So at the moment I have the Copic Colouring process for you here, and the process video here.



So unfortunately this is a quick blog post with not much information as everything was thrown out after the video was made (I will make sure I start writing everything in a book from now on hahah).

Thanks For stopping by,

DT Teresa - Animals

Hello everyone!

This month we are sharing projects featuring animals on the Auzz Trinklets and Crafts blog. Many companies have brilliant creature stamps and Neha has numerous styles of animal stamps in the store, from Katzelkraft critters to Clearly Besotted beasties to Lawn Fawn fauna - you are sure to find something to suit your style!

Today I am again working with stamps from one of my favourite companies, My Favorite Things.

This card uses Neenah Classic Crest 110lb Smooth Solar White Cardstock for the base which is cut with a paper trimmer at 4 1/4" x 11" and scored with a teflon bone folder at 5 1/2" to make a top folding card of 5 1/2" x 4 1/4".



I die cut a frame with a Sizzix Big Shot Machine from My Favorite Things Dienamics Stitched Cover-Up Companion - Vertical four times from Neenah Classic Crest 80lb Smooth Solar White Cardstock and adhered these together on top of each other using Ranger Multi Medium Matte. I stamped the sentiment from the new My Favorite Things Happy Hippos on the centre of the frame with Versafine Onyx Black Ink and then adhered the frame to the card base. 

I used the same die to cut a small rectangle piece from My Favorite Things Calm & Cozy Chevron 6x6 Paper Pack to fit inside the bottom rectangle of the frame. I first adhered it to one piece of Neenah cardstock left over from the frames I cut earlier and adhered it in place to the card base. I then diecut a piece of Simon Says Stamp 100lb Cardstock - Green Apple with Lawn Fawn Stitched Mountain Borders and a piece of Simon Says Stamp 100lb Cardstock - Seaglass with the same die. I pieced these together, adhering them to one larger rectangle piece of Neenah cardstock from the top of the frame. I then cut away the overhanging pieces of coloured cardstock with Tim Holtz Kushgrip Scissors and placed the rectangle back into the larger rectangle of the frame and ran it through the Sizzix Bigshot Machine again in order to have the stitched edge on the rectangle piece. I adhered this in place onto the card base.

I cut the sun from the Simon Says Stamp 100lb Cardstock - Sunshine with the Mama Elephant Stitched Sky die set and trimmed the rays off a little at the top and on the right using a mini guillotine, similar to the Tonic Studio guillotine. This enabled me to tuck it snugly into the corner inside the frame.




I then stamped the hippo, birds and balloons from the My Favorite Things Happy Hippos in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, using my Misti Stamping Tool onto X-Press It Blending card. I coloured these using Copic Markers and cut each image using a Brother Scan n Cut as I did not have the coordinating dies on hand. I placed these onto the card using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape to add dimension.

I completed the card by adding Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins - 4mm and 6mm.

Thankyou for following along with me today. If you cannot find the items I have used (listed below) in the Auzz Trinklets and Crafts store, be sure to drop Neha a message via email or Facebook and she will do what she can to order the product in for you.

DT Deni - Monday Focus

Hi Everyone,

DT Deni here with you tonight.

Not a normal monthly DT post here. But some of you may know that I have decided to start trying to make You Tube videos of my colouring and card process. I have finally worked all this out. There is a few little hiccups along the way but I feel like I am getting better and better.
A few people have been awesome and given me feedback on things I can do to make them better. I am hoping in my latest video that I have been able to do exactly that.

My first video - the turtle is horrible! Yes I am being honest hahah. I wasn't sure how to make a you tube video.. I started out videoing in one program and then in a second, this has made my video jump around and the background music cut in and out. **EDITED this video has been removed apparently the music in the background which was part of the editing software was a breach of copyright laws**

Anyway onto the good stuff.. Video 2 is a Copic Colouring video, I have coloured up the My Favorite Things Space Explorer stamp set that I recently received in an order from Auzz Trinklets n Crafts. I'd love for you to pop by my You Tube channel and check it out.

Here is the card I created using the image from Video 1.



Once you have watched it, i'd love for you to watch video number 3 which I have just finished editing tonight. I have made a few improvements on this one - I slowed the video down a little, I added pictures of the completed project at the end, I am focusing on my nerves.. had all my supplies written down so I didnt feel on the spot too much when I was doing the voice over. I have also had my ventolin before talking and concentrated on my breathing haha. I am still struggling a little after being sick two weeks ago. I would love your honest feedback if you think there is something else I can improve on.

Thanks for stopping by and we hope to see you again over the next few days as the DT Girls share their "Animal" themed projects. I will see you on Saturday with a project and hopefully another video to go with it.
