Welcome Baby Shadow Box – We Are Family Blog Co-hop ~ Xyron & Paper House

XyronPaperhouse1

Hello my crafty peeps! I am so happy because today the Xyron Design Team is teaming up with Paper House.  For my project, I am showcasing a collection of beautiful patterned papers and sticker collection by Paper House. A huge “thank you” to Paper House and Xyron for all of the amazing products we got to play with. They are extremely beautiful!

To further celebrate this collaboration, there is going to be GIVEAWAY!!!!! Xyron is giving away a prize pack (photo below).  In order to win, please visit the Xyron Facebook page (link: https://www.facebook.com/xyroninc/) from Monday, May 22nd through Friday, May 26th and leave a comment on each post.  Winners will be announced on Xyron’s Facebook page.

XyronPaperhouse2

For my project today, I decided to create a beautiful Shadow Box to showcase the beautiful patterned paper and card stock/puffy stickers that I received from the Paper House. I recently went to Daiso and found this inexpensive shadow box and I thought it would be perfect to use for my project. I also wanted to show you guys that you don’t always have to use liquid glue or modpodge to adhere patterned paper to your 3D projects. The Xyron Creative Station Lite is the perfect machine because it applies edge-to-edge adhesive to your paper and you don’t need to wait for it to dry. You can create 3D projects in no time. Here are the products that I have used:

IMG_4898

I started out by painting my shadow box using craft paint and my foam brush. To cover the outside, I took my ruler and measured my shadow box (height, length and width) and cut the paper so I can cover the outside of the box. I used the patterned paper with pink elephants. I thought this paper pad is so beautiful! I used my Xyron Creative Station Lite and ran the papers through the machine to create stickers. I adhered the paper to the box.

This is what the outside of the box look like.  The beautiful patterned paper is adhered to the box perfectly!

IMG_4934

Using my ruler again, I measured the inside of the box (height, length and width) and cut my Neenah solar white card stock to fit inside the box. I wanted to create a hillside scene for my hot air balloon, elephant and giraffe. I used my Lawn Fawn pop-up hillside border dies and Grass border dies. I also die-cut the rest of the elements that I needed to create the scene, using different dies from my stash.

IMG_4914

Using my homemade cloud stencil and Broken China distress ink, I started sponging the color to my white card stock to create the look of the sky. I used my Xyron Creative Station Lite to adhere the card stock inside my shadow box.

IMG_4926

Using my Xyron mega-tape runner, I adhered my hillside pop-up border inside the box to create the hills for my scene, as well as the sun and tress. I used the cute stickers from the pack that I received from the Paper House (baby elephant, giraffe, hot air balloon, flowers, onesie, rattle, etc.) to finish my design.

Here’s a close-up photo of my shadow box:

Here’s another look, with the box open:

XyronPH2

And another close-up photo below!  You can also add some battery-operated twinkle lights to make this shadow box more dramatic, or a battery-operated tea light.  This will be perfect to give as a gift:

Coffee Cards with Xyron and Maya Road

xyronmayaroadgraphic

Hello crafters and stampers! Today the Xyron design team is teaming up with the amazing Maya Road design team. If you haven’t checked the past posts by my fellow DT members, they have made some wonderful projects that I was “ooh-ing” and “ahh-ing” the last few days.

I am also happy to share that everyday during the blog hop Xyron will be giving away a “sparkly” X sticker maker. Who doesn’t love a sticker maker, right? And best of all it’s sparkly!!!! All you have to do is leave a comment on the Maya Road projects that Xyron had shared on the Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/xyroninc during the hop and Xyron will announce the winner the following morning.

xstickermaker

Maya Road is also giving away a $15 gift certificate to their shop. Here’s a link to the Maya Road’s blog for full details: http://www.mayaroad.typepad.com

For my projects, I am showcasing the Enjoy Coffee Die bundle and I made I gift tag and two cards. The tag and the first card did not have any stamping since the die bundle is full of cute dies. I die-cut them all with my Neenah 100 lb. card stock and my patterned paper.

For the gift tag, I wanted to create a shaker tag and decided to use my exacto-knife to cut out the middle portion of the die-cut, adhered the acetate with my Xyron mega runner adhesive, added the foam and used my espresso mix sequins for my shaker elements from Kat Scrappiness.  It turned out really cute!

XyronMayaRoad3

For my first card, I wanted it to look like the coffee is sitting on top of the table with the little spoon. I used a die from my stash to die-cut the white piece twice. I then used my embossing folder to emboss the first piece, making it look like a lacy, tablecloth. I also used my Xyron creative station to make my own foam adhesive with fun foam. I wanted to give the “tablecloth” a little dimension. I then used my Xyron mega tape runner to adhere everything to my front panel. Here are the step-by-step photos:

IMG_4609

xyronmayaroad1

For my second card, I used some cute patterned paper and a stamp from my stash. To finish off the design, I used some vellum to die-cut my leafy swirls. I also used my X sticker maker to adhere a vellum bow to the spoon. The sticker maker is the best tool to have when adhering vellum on your projects.  This card will have a Starbuck’s gift card inside.

Here is the second card:

I hope you like my projects! I have also listed and linked the supplies I have used. Have an amazing day!

NND_17MARCH_LovableLaundry

I stamped my images on Neenah solar white card stock, and colored the images with my Copic markers. I die-cut the grass, using NND’s Land Border Dies.  I die-cut the baby clothes with its coordinating die.  I really love the stitching details it gives on the die-cut piece.

 

IMG_4101

 

I used my clouds embossing folder and dry-embossed my card front panel. To give more definition to the clouds, I colored the embossed image with my Copic marker.  I adhered my stamped images and die-cut pieces to the embossed panel, with my Xyron tape runner.

To finish off the design, I added the sun, butterfly and gemstones to the baby clothes and stamped the 3 hearts on the clouds.  Here is the card:

Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #396 – Birthday Card

There is a new challenge at Cupcake Inspirations Blog (http://cupcakeinspirations.blogspot.com) and Newton’s Nook Designs is a sponsor for this event. The theme is so cute so I decided to play along. Here is the inspiration photo:

For my card below, I am showcasing the brand new Newton Loves Cake stamp set with an older Newton’s Sick Day stamp set.

Here are some photos on how I layered the cats. I have used some craft foam and my Xyron adhesive to add an even dimension to my card. This will ensure that when you send your handmade cards to the mail, it wouldn’t get crushed in the process.

To adhere the intricate pieces on my card, I used my Xyron sticker maker. I honestly cannot live without this little machine.

img_3974

Here is my card. It is a birthday card for my big sister, who loves cats. She also rescues sick stray cats and nurse them back to health. I’ve always called her the cat lady but in reality, she has the biggest heart for all animals.

nndcc396

I hope my card has given you some inspiration today to create something beautiful! Happy crafting!
