Jenn joins us today to share a fabulous Magic Iris card featuring our whimsical Beam Me Up aliens! Jenn made this card for her nephew who then wanted to learn how to make one too! So Jenn, always the teacher, did a Face Time session to share her crafty knowledge with a new generation of crafters! Check out her blog for more on the story, HERE.
Rather than do lots of ink blending, Jenn used navy blue patterned papers from an older Lawn Fawn paper collection. Maybe you have been hoarding some in your crafty stash; this just might be the time use it. The tiny star patterns are perfect for this outer space theme!
One of my favorite ways to use the Magic Iris is to hide part of the sentiment inside! Jenn used Blue Jay ink to stamp all the greetings!
It’s all in the details, Jenn added Glossy Accents to the alien’s eyes to give them a shiny 3D look! Gotta love the placement of the party hat too!
Thanks for sharing this adorable inspiration today, Jenn! Great job teaching young crafters how to make fun Magic Iris cards!
To create this beautiful tropical scene on a large 5×7 card, Joy used the Hillside Stencils to ink the ocean currents. Then she did some more ink blending to add the sandy beach and a lovely sunset! The palm trees are from the Hammock and Trees die set and all the cute animals are from Critters in the Sea!
When the Magic Iris opens it reveals a cute sea turtle heading back to join his friends in the ocean!
Thank you so much for sharing with us today, Joy! We love this fantastic inspiration!
Jessica is back today to share a a beautiful Magic Iris card with a gorgeous sunset desert theme! She added more fun by making it a shaker!
This gorgeous card features an ink blended desert sky and our adorable Year Ten cactus! Jessica added some vellum Simple Puffy Clouds to complete the scene then she stamped the birthday sentiment on the iris!
I love how the fun interactive shaker element can be seen when the iris is opened! Check out Marine’s video tutorial to see how to make a Magic Iris shaker card, click HERE.
Jess filled the shaker with tiny beads and cute cupcake confetti! Now that’s a festive birthday card!
Thanks so much for sharing this beautiful card with us today, Jess!
