Hey Crafters!! My honey bug turned 4 this month and I wanted to make her a special card. Her party was a Princess theme. We love ALL of the princess movies. I used a little Golden book by Disney called, Beauty and the Beast The Teapot’s Tale, as inpiration for creating my characters for the card. I have created a likeness to Mrs. Potts, Chip, Cogsworth the clock and Lumiere the candle stick holder. All from dies! Yes!
AccuCut Craft Teapot Die: T1005J (Jumbo size = 9 inches and 11/16ths Tall by 11 inches and 11/16ths Wide).
Sizzix (Eileen Hull) Tea Cup, 3-D Die: 656549 (I had to add an extra piece of water color paper to the bottom of the tea pot and hand draw the decorative element to create the pedestal of the cup, it was fussy cut w/small scissors).
I already had the tea cup die, when I purchased the tea pot die fully knowing that some day I would make a special card with them. They’ve been here for a few years and this was my chance to see if I could do it. Teapot and cup were cut in Canson Cold Press 140 lb Watercolor paper (I buy the 9×12 inch pad at Wal-Mart Super Center). Most details were drawn in pencil first, then covered by Copics. For the teapot and cup’s decorative base-handles- eyes: Y18, RV55, B12 and Bic Mark it Desert Rose and Tuxedo Black. Shading on the teapot and cup in No. 0 Gray. Teapot’s eye shadow BV13. Thick Black lines Copic 100 Black. Thin black lines Sharpie Medium point marker. Inside the teapot and cup Copic C4. Teapot’s lipstick outlined in Bic Mark it Desert Rose, filled in with Copic R29with RV66 over it. Inside the teapot’s mouth R56. Inside cup’s mouth Copic Black 100.
Spellbinders Mod Clocks Die set: S5-074, Joy Crafts Billie’s Garden (candle stick holder w/ hand drawn candles and face, fussy cut with small scissors), Provo Craft Place Setting die set (silver ware). I even tossed in the little cake decorating bag from Lawn Fawn’s Baked with Love stamp set. I couldn’t resist and it was easier than trying to come up with the “dusters” from this table scene. LOL. I didn’t have any dies that would mimic the dusters, off the cuff anyway. The silverware were a stretch too. I just needed something to fill the space in the center of the table and hey, I’ve got a silverware die! They were cut in light gray card stock and doodled on with the black medium point sharpie and I knew they had to have Faces. Love them!
Sizzix Birthday Cake #2 Die, WPlus9 Fresh Cut Florals 2013 (the die that matches the solid image flower on the top right corner of this stamp set (flowers on cake), Sizzix/Stampin’UP! Edgelits – Large Scalloop 127019 (to create green and purple swags on cake). Base Cake cut in textured light yellow card stock. Cake plate cut in red card stock and doodled on with a pink metallic gel pen and filled in with R56.
Clock base cut in burnt orange card stock used as a drop shadow, clock base cut in bright yellow for the main body to adhere everything else to, clock base cut in medium brown and cut up for pieces for the trim and top of the clock and doodled on with Copics: E27 on the brown areas, Y26 on the yellow areas. Face cut in light pink card stock w/clock face die from the Mod Clocks set, but hands are from an older Spellbinders set called, Pocket Watch. All images and characters outlined with Sharpie marker to mimic their design from the book.
The cake and icing bag are elevated on double sided foam tape by Scotch. Everything else is glued straight down to the inside of the card. Little moment lines added around the dancing items with Copic E35.
The sentiments were created with Lawn Fawn’s Riley’s ABCs LF452 and stamped in Ranger Archival Jet Black ink.
I did film this ALL day card, but in the end I’d accidentally laid the open book on my desk for reference of the faces while creating and I just felt like it could not be shared due to copy write laws, etc. I spent hours creating, editing and voice over too. Millie and her Momma (my Katie) loved the card and so did everyone else who was watching her read it. Mission accomplished! Eeeeeeee! (Happy Sound).
