Doodlebug Design | Special Delivery & Bundle of Joy Shadow Box Kits

There's not much more special than a new baby... unless it's two new babies!  My cousin and his wife are expecting twins... a boy and a girl!  We are all so excited for them!  Of course, as soon as I saw the new Shadowbox Insert Kits for Special Delivery and Bundle of Joy I knew I had the perfect gift for the new parents!  I set to work immediately!  Take a peek....

Some close-ups....

These insert kits are super easy and fun to put together.  They come with all of the stickers, jewels and sprinkles you need, along with a fabulous guide.  You just need to add some pop-dots and foam strips.  I love the Scrapbook Adhesives 3D Foam Squares and 3D foam Strips.  They are the perfect size and width for some of the more delicate stickers. 

To start, you will want to trim the included vellum piece to be 8"x 8".  Then using washi tape (or very low tack tape) center the vellum over the template and secure.  Now for the fun part, embellish! I find it easiest to start with the jewels.  

Next I add the shaped sprinkles which are noted on the template with an "S".  If there's an X with the S, it means to use a foam dot on that sprinkle to pop it up.

Once the sprinkles were done, I added the stickers.  Some stickers are flat while others are popped up... as indicated by an X on the template.  I find it easiest to do all the flat stickers first, then the popped up ones.

This is where the thin pop up strips come in handy.  They can be cut to fit the smallest pieces. Of course you can use any type of foam tape or pop dots.

Once you've got all the stickers done, just check to make sure you haven't missed any spaces.

The kit also comes with a piece of white cardstock to back the vellum.  I trimmed that to be 8"x 8", and added it behind the vellum in the frame.  You can also use patterned paper if you prefer.

These shadowboxes were a big hit with the parents to be... I can't wait to see them in the nursery!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Doodlebug Design | Down on the Farm Triple Easel Card

I love making 3D cards.  It's always fun making little scenes using Doodlebug's icons... whether it be with the Icon Stickers, Mini Icons or Odds & Ends.  I found a new (to me) style of card recently... the triple easel card.  I immediately thought that it would be the perfect way to display some of the Down on the Farm cuties!  Take a peek...

The fun thing about this style of card is that at first, it looks like a basic A2 card....but then you open it and.... voilĂ !  You have an entire scene!

I started with the barn and sun from the Odds & Ends for my main backdrop.  I added the adorable chicken up in the loft from the Icon Stickers.  Next I added a fence from the Odds & Ends and the What's Moo cow Doodle Pop.  Yes, don't faint... I used a Doodle Pop! No worries, I have duplicates, lol.  Of course he's saying "moo" with the speech bubble from the Chit Chat pieces.

For my final tier, I used another Doodle Pop!  That little piggy is too cute!  I popped up his mud puddle to hold up the tier.  Here are some more close-ups....

There are tons of triple easel card tutorials online if you search.  I combined a few, and basically made my own measurements so the card would fit my needs.  They really are easy, and so fun to display!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Doodlebug Design | Down on the Farm Pop Up Cards

Down on the Farm is one of my all-time favorite collections.  The little critters are absolutely adorable! The cows, pigs and sheep just make me smile!  I decided to make a few pop up cards using some of the stickers from the collection.  I love how there's always plenty of icons to make up little scenes!  Take a peek...

I love the punny sentiments in this collection.  They make it easy to create cards that are more "all purpose", springy cards.  The first card I created was with the little cow.  He is udder-ly adorable. And really... "Cow's it Going?"... just perfect.

My next card features those fluffy sheep and the little chicken.   They're having a great day hanging in the meadow.

My last card features the chubby little piggies, hanging out in some mud puddles... They really are "Sow Sweet!"  My favorite part is the little worm popping up on the front of the card!

As I said, I love how all Doodlebug collections contain a variety of icons that allow you to build some fun little scenes!  Have you created any projects using the Down on the Farm Collection?  Make sure to tag Doodlebug Design on Facebook and Instagram, we love to see what you create!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!
