Tutorial Tuesdays: Oddleigh Birthday Celebrations Accordion Book by Nan!

Hiya Creative Friends!
We're celebrating LeighSBDesigns 1st Birthday this month🎉  Enter the Birthday Card Contest using the provided FREEBIE for the chance to win one of 3 prizes sponsored by LeighSBDesigns, Simply B Stamps and Ike's Art!  Check out all the Birthday Celebrations HERE!  The contest ends on April 22nd, you don't want to miss it😋

PLUS, if you're a LeighSBDesigns Etsy Boutique customer already then check your Etsy Conversation inboxes, you all have received Birthday pressies🎉


The Oddleighs are having a wonderful time celebrating our 1st birthday🎉
Just look at this fabulous mixed media accordion fold book created by LeighSBDesigner Nan for today's Tutorial Tuesday segment🎉
  

1.  Create an accordion fold book from cardstock with panels that each measure 5" x 5" and add a 1/2 an inch flap on both ends.

2.  Decorate the panels with assorted stamps inked with your favorite colors.

3.  Apply soft body or craft acrylic paint with an old credit card over to each panel and let it dry.

4.  Apply white acrylic paint or gesso over Step 3 and let it dry.


5. Print out all the Oddleigh Girls, the Oddleigh Cherished Heart border, Oddleigh Flower's flowers and the Fireworks that come with both the Oddleigh July 4th and New Year sets and the Birthday Card Contest FREEBIE and color everything with markers and colored pencils.  Fussy cut all the images, except the FREEBIE, and adhere them to the book panels.

6.   Ink up the panel edges with your favorite ink pads or use acrylic paint applied with a sponge.


7.  Cut 4 pieces of cardstock measuring 7" x 7" for the front and back covers plus 2 panels of the same size from a cereal box.

8.  Emboss the front and back cardstock covers and then glue them to the cereal box panels to make the book covers nice and sturdy.

9.  Apply glue to the 1/2 inch flaps on the ends of the accordion book and attach the front and back covers.  To give the book a nice finished look cover the other side of the cereal box panels with the last 2 pieces of cardstock and hide the glued flaps.

10.  Attach 2 pieces of ribbon to the front cover of the book.  Leave enough ribbon loose on the ends to be able to wrap around the book and tie with knots or bows to keep the book closed.  Then finish off by attaching the FREEBIE image to the front cover with foam tape.


Undo the bow and enjoy the Oddleigh party🎉

Supplies used

LeighSBDesigns Etsy Boutique SALEbration
Today is my ONE DAY SALE!
Enjoy 40% off store wide!
excludes Freebie Bundles
Sale will end at midnight pacific!
no coupon needed!

As you can see from the SALEbration poster lil miss Oddleigh Cupcake looks awesome in bold bright Copic colours and she looks amazing done in a vintage shabby chic style too.
This was my first time using Spectrum Noir ColourTint pencils, they are sooooo much fun!


I used colours from both the Primary and Nature Spectrum Noir ColourTint sets to colour her as well as a bit of background shading to frame her.  The rest of the background was done with Tea Dye and Black Soot Distress Inks and a Tim Holtz Gothic layering stencil.


 I used a Spellbinders Shapeabilities Ironworks Accents die down the right hand side and the flowers are Spellbinders Carnation Creations dies.  I used the ColourTint pencils to make watercoloured cardstock and used that for the die cut flowers as well as the mat layer. 


I added Viva Pearl Violet Magic Transparent 3D gel to the flower centers and stamped the birthday sentiment from Tim's Crazy Talk rubber stamps down the left side in Onyx Black Versafine ink.  Cardstock distressed edges and a black folded card completes the look.

April's New Releases!

Tutorial Tuesdays: Z Fold Spinner Birthday Card by Leigh!

Hiya Creative Friends!
Firstly, did you know I'm celebrating LeighSBDesigns 1st Birthday this month?  Check out all the Birthday Celebrations HERE!  There's customer gifts, a Birthday Card Contest using the provided FREEBIE, 3 prizes up for grabs and details on the upcoming Etsy Boutique SALEbration!
Come and join the party🎉


For today's Tutorial Tuesday I'm sharing the fun Z Fold Spinner Birthday Card I made my nephew for his 11th birthday plus there's a little video below showing it in action for you to check out too!
  
Today's featured digi designs are my new Birthday Cupcake, the Party Hat pack with Santa Whiskers joining the party sporting one of the party hats....he's so cute😻
All three are now on FLASH SALE until midnight PDT tonight!


 A Z Fold card is so much fun and including the spinner element adds that extra WOW factor!  Totally makes it a super cool birthday card for boys and girls and adults too of course!


Start off by making a regular side folding card and then fold the front of the card in half creating a mountain fold.  I used white cardstock but you can use whatever colour you want.


Center the largest of Spellbinders' Nestabilities Mega Ovals LG dies on the front fold and die cut out an oval window.


 Adhere decorative paper to the entire front side of the card and then die cut out the window oval again.  Frame the oval window with a metallic gold paint marker.


Emboss a panel of red cardstock with a birthday themed embossing folder and apply metallic gold rub-on creme to enhance the embossed design.  Edge the entire panel with the metallic gold paint marker.  Now for all the digi image fun!
 

Measure the height and width at the widest part of the oval window and adjust the size of the Birthday Cupcake to fit the space.  You need 2 cupcakes with one being a mirror image.  I also printed out 2 extra candles as well. 


Merge one of the Party Hats onto Santa Whiskers in your art software before printing him out or add the party hat after printing with just a bit of fussy cutting and layering.


Colour all the images with Copics and add highlights with a white dylusions paint pen.
I also added lots of  yummy sparkle with clear Wink of Stella and metallic gold Spectrum Noir Sparkle glitter brush pen to the cupcake frosting, candles and party hat.


Fussy cut out all the images.  For the 2 cupcakes, fussy cut them both out by holding them together back to back.  Then adhere them together and sandwich a length of clear fishing line down the center.  Adhere the ends of the fishing line into the fold crease of the oval window on the back of the card, pull the line taught and trim off any excess.


 Apply Black Soot Distress ink to all the edges of the card including the window crease.


Rubber stamp the birthday sentiments with Onyx Black Versafine ink and adhere the red embossed panel to the inside of the card and add the kitty.   Embellish the left side of the Z fold with metallic gold number stickers and the 2 candles.  I used two 1's coz my nephew turned 11 and mirrored the number with the 2 fussy cut out candles.


 Wind up the spinner by twisting it quite a bit to get a good spin out of it, pop it inside an envelope and its ready for the grand surprise😀


 Check out my little video to see it in action😋
