Happy Birthday Burger Box

Hello! I'm Becki from the Happy Card Factory and I am back today with another project for you. Who doesn't love a happy meal box? Especially when they are filled with treats. I finally got a chance to play with the new Fleurette Bloom stamps. After seeing this happy burger, all I could think of was a happy birthday burger box shaped after those fast meals with the toys that kids love. I think it came out similar without getting in trouble. ;)

There were a few sets I used to get my happy burger box. To make the house box, I used the Christmas Memories 3D luminary house. I had to do a little renovation on it by releasing the compound paths to delete the windows and door. I also added a rectangle to the peaks of the roof so there wouldn't be a hole where the chimney is supposed to go. The scalloped mat is from the I'm Wishing kit's Lace card. With the addition of the burger stamp and sentiment from the Fast Foodies, it makes one adorable, fast happy burger box.

I wanted a handle similar in style to the "m" you get on the other box. Since this will be filled with birthday goodies, it was decided to add the occasion sentiment as the "handle." I used the Arial font, welded the letters together with little tabs. The tabs were then inserted into the slits I cut with an Exacto knife into the flat peak of the roof. The tabs were then glued down on the underside to give it stability. Now the box can be picked up with the "HB2U" instead of the decorative wire. Add a twine bow and sentiment, you're done. How cute! It's a very happy box to give to the birthday boy or girl.

Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to leave some love in the comments sections and have a very crafty day!

Sea Critters Watercolor Gift Tags!

I've been taking some time to really explore the brand New Stamp Sets and SVG Kits by Fleurette Bloom [FB] and I must say they are just so much Fun! 

I used Rockin Quick CARDS SVG kit and Sea Critters Stamp Set to make my Gift Tags. These Tags are going to work Perfectly to gift my sewing project [to reveal in another post].


I especially like how Flawless they stamp out and the ease it takes with just one press.  I used Versa Mark ink and then a Dye ink over that to get the colored stamped images and heat set it with my heat tool.

To make the background for all my tags I used various Distress inks and also sprinkled the ink with a wet brush onto the paper while it was damp and then heat dried it. Using the Sea Critters Stamp Set, I stamped a bunch of bubbles in different sizes onto watercolor paper.   Love how these backgrounds came to life!


Then, I use my Zig Real Brush Markers to watercolor the stamped images. I love the look!!   Have you given the Zig Real Brushes a try yet?  I know you will love them as much as I do.  


Now, you must know I'm not a professional stamper, But I do Love the art of stamping and watercoloring and I'm having a lot of Fun with it all!  With that being said, you will see I've went out of the lines in some places, but I think that's ok....let's call it Character for these sweet images! ha

Lesson learned: [color After image is cut out] When cutting my stamped images and "Tags" from the Rockin Quick CARDS Svg set, my Scan N Cut2  found every edge and it was very Easy to cut my stamped images out.  I had to giggle--it even found my 'character' flaws and so eloquently went around them [see sea star]! LOL!!  So Much Fun!


To finish up my Sea Critters I used some Wink of Stella Clear here and there on the Sea Star, Octopus and the fish's fins.

Be sure to Hop on over to Fleurette Bloom Designs to get your Sea Critters STAMP Set and with a purchase of only $8.98 you will get the Rockin Quick CARDS Kit  FREE!!

Moon & Stars Card With Watercolor Envelopes! FB Stamps

Hello! KimberlyRae, here with another project created with Fleurette Bloom's 
These two kits were perfect to make my shaker card and and my card envelopes.  I just love the way they look and hope my daughter will love her card :)


For the CARD, I started out with my favorite watercolor paper and cut a circle, cut the stars and moons out of TIP: Contact paper and adhered them tossed over the circle keeping them more over on the right side [I knew I wanted my moon on the left side].  Then, watercolored [is that a] my paper up and set aside.
My 'Happy Birthday' sentiment was stamped from the Sun Moon and Stars Stamp Set by Fleurette Bloom! [see below in the SUPPLY list]


While that was drying I watercolored my moon  and the front of the shaker part.  After your background has dried carefully take off your stars and moons contact paper to reveal the white paper!
Then, to assemble I placed some acetate on the backside of the background and placed scotch double sided foam tape [twice] around so there wasn't any holes for the sequins and pearls to fall out.  TIP: Before putting your shaker goodies inside BRUSH WITH Antistatic powder around the inside of the foam tape and the goodies won't stick].  I placed my circle over your background and viola done!

Now, to make my envelopes, I cut the Envelope file from Rockin  Quick Cards SVG Kit and used a small brush and Resist Liquid to draw my letters and the address and hearts.  Then, I watercolored the front and a lil on the back flap, splattering some of the ink on top between heat settings.   You are the artist here...go wild!  ha

Motorcycle Birthday card

Motorcycle birthday card 3

Becki from Happy Card Factory here with a new project! My nephew loves motorcycles, he helps his dad "fix" the ones in his shop. So Fleurette Bloom Designs Motorcycle Racing set was the way to go. Even though the set doesn't come with a motorcycle birthday card, it is real easy to make one with the included elements. I was intrigued by the motorcycle box, but sending it all the way to Ohio wasn't a good idea to me. Instead, I used elements from various parts of the kit. 

Motorcycle birthday card 1

I used the offset from the box to make a mat for my motorcycle and the card base. To keep the card quick and easy, the Stars and Stripes motorcycle printable (no need cutting all the little pieces of the bike and reassembling them) and the decorative bike pieces from the SVG (made into a Print n' Cut) gave the motorcycle a dimensional, pieced together look fast. The flag shape and sentiment (made by me) was added to the cycle offset card base along with the kit's highway lane stripe to complete my shaped motorcycle birthday card. 

Motorcycle birthday card 2

For the inside, I added a sentiment on another offset. Adds a nice little touch. I really hope that kid likes his card. Chances are he will probably destroy it within an hour.

Rockin Piano Card - Free Gift & Announcement!

Hello Crafty Friends!  KimberlyRae here with some Exciting news to share with you.  I have come back to join Fleurette Bloom's design team!  WooT!  Thank you, Fleurette, I'm so happy to be Back!  [Happy Dance]   I'm looking forward to working with you and the rest of the team :)

This kit is Awesome!  You will enjoy every quality file and  you will also enjoy Free files to create your very own card.


To make this card, I started out with my favorite watercolor paper, for my cardbase [any will work] and then cut the Shoe CardBase and all the elements of the Rose file, located within the SVG files of the kit.

Then, with FB's Rose Stencil [FREE for a limited time @] and placing the stencil here and there on the paper, I water colored the INSIDE  of the cardbase with my Zig Real Brush Markers [any die ink or distress inks will work, too]. I used the same markers for the rose and leaves.


For the stamped "Happy Birthday" sentiment, I used FB's Stamp Set called "Ice Cream Party" and embossed it with White embossing powder.  Love it on the black background.

The FREE Piano Keys file  and FREE Rose Stencil are only available for a limited time. Make sure you Hurry on over to Fleurette Bloom Designs to get your Free Kit [with a purchase of only $8.98] and check out All she has to offer including SVGs, 3D file Kits, Printables, digital papers and her NEW STAMPS!

To The Moon And Back - Water Color Stamped Card news, lol! I had a sabbatical from Fleurette Bloom design team. It has been a rough year for me and I just needed a break from lots of things. And, now I feel ready again, and Fleurette was so kind to welcome me back. 
And what a time to return!!! She now is designing stamps! And I've been having a lot of fun playing with different techniques, such as water color, Copics, colored pencils...and on and on. So, my first project back is a shaker card.

I used a piece of Tim Holtz water color paper and set out to create a starry sky. I used various colors of blue. Dried in between layers to get the great water color look. After it was totally dry, I used my anti static powder tool to get rid of any static. I then stamped the stars in Versamark ink and used white embossing powder. I then went back and used some metallic gold water color and painted in those stars. The white embossing acts as a dam and the water pretty much stays put. I like the shimmery look it gives.
I then grabbed a circle die and cut a circle in that background piece. This became the shaker window. I backed it with clear acetate and applied foam tape to the back. I filled the window with tiny seed beads in colors of golds and clear. A piece of plain white cardstock covered that to hold the tiny bits in place.

I then created some watercolor in yellows, several layers, then stamping and white embossing the moon. I cut by hand because it was easy and I wanted it right up to the line. I mounted that on foam tape and positioned on the acetate where I wanted it. I then cut out the stars from the cut circle piece and positioned those with foam tape as well. Stamped and embossed the sentiment and cut to create a flag. Added it on foam tape...I love foam tape, lol!
Glued down a few sequins here and there and called this card finished!

Here's your shopping list.

Sea Critters Digi Die Cuts & Stamps Shaker Card

Hello Friends,
Ilda here from the DT!!!

Today I have a really super cute and fairly simple card to share with you from one of Fleurette Bloom's latest Sea Critter Digi Die Cuts and Digi Stamps. I am anxiously awaiting for the arrival of her polymer stamp collection that were recently released, hopefully my happy mail will arrive soon!  In the mean time I want to show you how you can create the stamped look with out the having to do any stamping or colouring by hand.

So here is my Sea Critter Shaker Card! How cute did that turn out?! :)
Looks like they are having a fun "shell-o-bration!"

Here is how I created my card, hope this helps you if you are wanting to make something similar.
  • Using the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition software I opened the colored digi files I wanted to use. 
  • Next I created a rectangle slightly smaller than the front of the basecard I wanted to use. 
  • I then filled the rectangle with a gradient blue. 
  • Send rectangle (background image) to the back of the layers. 
  • Next you will want to resize and arrange the critters onto the background/rectangle you created. 
  • Make sure that the cut setting of the images used inside the background are set to No Cut. 
  • For some added fun and interest I added a few layered critters. To do that I traced the outer edge of each image. Next, highlight the image with the outer edge, select the Object function, Modify and create a crop this will create a cut line around the image now if you select Cut Edge in the Cutting options. 
  • When you are happy with the layout of your card send the image to your printer, ensure your registrations marks are turned on. 
  • Once your images are printed out, you are now ready to cut them out!
Here is a phone pic of what mine looked like once I did the Print and Cut.
(Didn't want to waste paper so I created two cards the same way)

  • To finish the card Glue the printed image to the front of your base card. 
  • For some fun and dimension I glued some of the other cut out critters onto the printed images using pop dots. 
  • The next thing I did was cut out a black border slightly larger then the the image I printed out. 
  • Glue some clear acetate to the back of the border. 
  • Add a border of foam tape along the edge of the black border, you may want to use two layers of tape to allow your sequins to freely move inside the card.
  • Add some sequins/beads to the middle of the card and then attach the acetate black border to the top of the card. 
  • All done your shaker card! Embellish as you like ;)

Here is a closer look as these cute critters!

Love You To The Moon Layout

Happy Friday everyone! Amy back on the blog today sharing a fun layout I created. 
I was inspired by all the cool shaker cards I've been seeing online. They are very popular these days.

Here is my layout:

First I did a print and cut of the moon from the Fleurette Bloom’s

Sun Moon & Stars Digi Die cuts & Digi Stamps

I then colored the moon using Copic Markers.
I cut the title on my Cameo. Font is called MoonLight (how appropriate is that?)

I cut the SVGs from the Digi Die Cuts and stamped with Fleurette Bloom’s

Sun Moon & Stars Clear Photopolymer Stamps

I added some gems and my photos on to the background patterned papers.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed my layout.

Don’t forget to stop by the Fleurette Bloom Store.
Have a great weekend!
