Under the Stairs Fandom Card with Miss Ink Stamps

Saturday, April 13, 2024

It's a fandom fun kind of day and I'm sharing my latest video with Miss Ink Stamps' latest release! The magical collection had stencils, stamps and dies released back in March and I wanted to share my take on using the new scene building dies for my card. I started with stamping my wizard and coloring him in my my OLO markers, then used the coordinating die to cut him out. 

Next I did my paper trimming and die cutting for all my pieces you see on the card. You can following along with my video down below to see how the assembly came together. My sentiment is tamped with black ink right onto my patterned "wall" paper and I added some white highlights around the card to give it more of a cartoon look. I hope you enjoy today's video - if you're not into this fandom, the die set is still a MUST as you can make adorable scenes!

Let'ssss Party Birthday Card with Trinity Stamps

Friday, April 12, 2024

We're having ssssome party fun with our party ssssnake! I have a short video to share with you of how I made my latest Trinity Stamps project. I started with stamping and coloring my snake and used the coordinating dies to cut it out as well as my stamped sentiment. I foiled three balloons with an opal glimmer foil and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

You can watch my vide down below of how I made my stenciled background and added all of my images and embellishments to my card. It's a quick and simple card, but sometimes we need that quick and simple card for a birthday! It's perfect for all ages and all genders - I love the yellow, teal and blues together. Along with the touch of green from the snake.

Smiles & Wishes with Scrapbook.com

Thursday, April 11, 2024

There is a new Livestream Deal from Scrapbook.com today! It's a fun bundle with stamps, dies, paper and a stencil. I don't have the sentiment dies yet, but I have the rest so I made a quick and colorful card to share with you. I started with using Simon Hurley inks to create a rainbow background and splattered some water since it is water reactive. Mixing Cloud Whip and some Snowflake Pops of Color, I added flowers with the Daisy Stencil and set it aside to dry.

I trimmed a piece of yellow cardstock to 3-1/4 x 4-1/2" and orange cardstock to slightly larger than that to have a small, thin border around the yellow. I stamped my images and sentiments randomly on the yellow cardstock and adhered the orange behind it once the ink was dry. Using foam adhesive, I popped up the panel to my dried background and added a few more Pops around the yellow panel. My final card front was added to a top folding A2 card base.

Let me know what you think of my quick card and if you scored the bundle for yourself!

Glimmering Peonies with Spellbinders

The new release from Spellbinders this month has so many gorgeous new products! I was gifted the Glimmering Peonies Hot Foil Plates and Stencils as well as the Curved Everyday Sentiments Hot Foil Plates and Dies to bring you some inspiration. I have two different cards - I used gold foil for both cards with the large foil plate and used the stencil for just one of the cards. I wanted to show how you can use the foil plate without the stencils as some of you may not be into stenciling.

You can follow along in my video down below of how I used the new products to make floral cards. I wanted to keep them simple as I love how these products really don't need more from your crafty stash as the flowers are just so pretty on their own. The sentiment banners are perfect for adding to any card, too. For the stenciled card - I went with pinks with a few embellishments to finish off the card. My second card I added some simple floral die cuts to bring in more of the yellow to the center of the card. Which one is your favorite?

Don't Bug Me Before Coffee Tri-Fold Mini Slimline Card with Pink & Main

Tuesday, April 9, 2024

Today is my last project as a guest designer with Pink & Main! I had a lot of fun stamping and coloring the adorable images from the March 2024 release - I still have lots of fun products and will still bring you some inspiration with this release. Especially with all the amazing sequins! For my last project, I was inspired by this past Friday's episode of Craft Roulette and I made a tri-fold card.

To make the card, I trimmed my white card base to 10-1/2 x 6-1/2". I cut across the card width from the 6-1/2" on the right side (the corner of the cardstock) and I angled the cardstock to cut the other side at approximately 3-1/2". I scored the card at 3-1/2" and 7" so that it makes a mini slimline card that measures  3-1/2 x 6-1/2" when all is said and done, hah!

I cut panels (I used a pencil to make marks as needed) to fit on my different panels - I used some patterned paper from Pink & Main for the front panel, green cardstock for the middle and light grey cardstock for the back. I did lots of stamping with my small mug and sentiment with green ink and stamped my mug and floral images with alcohol marker friendly black ink.

After my coloring is done, I used the coordinating dies to cut them out as well as a golden yellow circle from the frame dies. I popped up my die cut images and added some sequins and gems to give it some subtle shine! I hope you had fun with me the past few weeks with Pink & Main!

Birthday Party Hats Card with Pretty Pink Posh

Monday, April 8, 2024

Hi, friends! I wanted to sharer the Half Stars Stencils card I made during the February 2024 release's sneak peek today! I wanted to go with Earth tones for this card, so for the (A) stencil I did every other column of stars with Distress Oxides in Mustard Seed and Peeled Paint. Then I used Breakup Blue Lunar Paste for the (B) stencil.

When the stenciled stars were dry, I trimmed the panel to 4x5-1/4” and adhered it to a panel of dark blue cardstock cut to A2 in size, 4-1/4x5-1/2”. I used dies from for the rest of the card, Party Hats Dies and Happy Birthday Shadow Dies, to add some fun birthday elements to the card in coordinating colors. For some extra shine, I used some Mossy Green Confetti around the party hats!

It's a quick card that's prefect for the folks in your life that prefer cool, earth toned colors!

Don't Just Fly, Soar! Box Card with The Sassy Club

Sunday, April 7, 2024

More fandom fun today with another box card with The Sassy Club! I really just wanted to color in these cute characters so I kept my box card pretty simple and used patterned paper that was circus themed. You can follow along in my short video below of the card assembly. I started with all of my die cutting and cut the Sassy Box Card base out of red cardstock and the detail dies out of Heffy Doodle's circus themed patterned paper.

Before adding my patterned paper on the front of the box card, I stamped my sentiment all the way to the right so I had room to add my mouse character to the left. Once my box card was assembled, I adhered my elephant to his little stage and glued him to the "shelf" on the inside of the box card. Finally, I added my mouse on his little stage to the front left of the box card. I think I could have stepped up this card a little with other circus themed items, but I love how simple and fun this card is!
