Fall is in the air! Don’t you just love the short days, comfort food, colorful leaves, sweater weather and pumpkin spice? I got so inspired today by a stamp set by Newton’s Nook Designs called “Fall-ing For you” that I decided to create a fall card. This card is also my entry for the new Simon Says Stamp Challenge – Autumn.
I started out by stamping my image on Neenah Solar White card stock with my stamping tool, and colored my images using my Copic markers.
I went ahead to die-cut my card panel and mat using my new favorite die by KatScrappiness – the “Double Stitched Rectangle Nesting Dies”. These nesting dies are so versatile that I am finding myself using them in all of my paper crafting projects. I also distressed my smaller rectangle piece using Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink by Tim Holtz, and used my watercolor brush to sprinkle water on my card stock to give it a distressed look.
I wanted to have some fall leaves for my card and so I decided to use my Lawn Fawn Stitched Leaves die, die-cutting a bunch of fall leaves in different colors, including some vellum.
Here is my card design for today. Don’t you just love fall? I love the simplicity of this card and I hope I have inspired you today to create something beautiful, or just go outside, take a leisure-walk, and enjoy the fall weather! Have an amazing day!
Even though I’m not ready for Christmas yet, I can’t help but get excited about playing with this new stamp set by MFT Stamps called Beast Friends. These Yeti images are so adorable!
I shared a YouTube video on how I created the first card if you’d like to check it out.
The second project is just an addition since I’ve already colored a few of those adorable Yetis. I wanted to create a cute Christmas tag. What do you think? Are you “Yeti” for Christmas?
Supplies I’ve used are listed below:
Hello everyone! I’m back today to share a very special card that I have made for a very special cause. Becca Cruger (a.k.a. Damsel of Distressed) is hosting an online event called “The Hop to Stop – Raising Awareness for Domestic Violence”.
Purple is the color of National Domestic Violence Awareness month. The idea behind this is to create a card that is purple. Another rule is to comment to at least the 3 cards before yours in the link-up. You will then be eligible for some cool prizes.
To know more about the details of the hop and to participate, please click on this link http://damselofdistressedcards.blogspot.com/2016/10/the-hop-to-stop-2016-raising-awareness.html. Becca had shared her story on her blog post and it is a huge honor to be a part of this cause.
Here is my card. I believe anything is possible if you put your mind to it. I hope we all join together to raise awareness to this great cause, and have a wonderful day!
Hello stampers and crafters. I am back today with a design team project for http://www.katscrappiness.com to show you a cute Thanksgiving card showcasing the Lawn Fawn Thankful Mice stamp set and dies, with KatScrappiness Stitched Rope Nested Rectangle Stax, with a bunch of other Lawn Fawn stamps and dies.
I started out by stamping the images on Neenah solar white card stock with my memento tuxedo black ink. I then colored my images using my Copic markers. After coloring the images, I proceeded to die-cut the images using the coordinating dies. A step-by-step process video is provided below and the supplies I have used have also been listed and linked.
I hope you like my project today and got inspired to create your own Thanksgiving cards for friends and family. Happy crafting!
Hello stampers and crafters! I am back today to share a card that I have made for the Kat Scrappiness and Newton’s Nook Breast Cancer Awareness Card challenge. The only requirement to join the challenge is to create a card with an encouraging/supportive message.
I started out by stamping the feathers using my Virginia Turtle stamp set called “Radiate Positivity” onto vellum card stock using my Versamark Ink. I then used my white embossing powder and heat-set the image. I used my precision scissors to fuzzy-cut the image and set it aside.
I die-cut my card panel using my scallop border die from Lawn Fawn and my peek-a-boo scallop die from MFT Stamps. I covered the window with some clear acetate and used my scotch foam adhesive to create my shaker panel. At this point, I used my stampoholic nano to stamp my sentiment on the front panel.
I wanted to use soft colors for my card and decided to use a mixture of 3 gorgeous sequins and confetti mix from Kat Scrappiness (6 mm powder pink, crystal clear flower blossom and pink flamingo confetti mix). I then adhered my shaker panel to my card base.
I finished the design by adhering the vellum feathers on the top of my peek-a-boo shaker window, and topped-it off with my pink ribbon, and also added some white diamond sequins to the front of the card.
I hope you like what I created. Here is the photo of the challenge in case you would like to participate and win some prizes.

Let’s get into the holiday spirit and create some Christmas projects today. I am back to share with you some design team projects for http://www.not2shabbyshop.com showcasing the cutest Lawn Fawn’s Winter Unicorn stamp set and die, with MFT Stamps LJD Peek-A-Boo Die-namics and Lawn Fawn Tiny Tags sayings.
I’ve shared a process video if you would like to see how I made the card and one of the tags.
I am back today to share with you some Halloween projects that I made using a bunch of dies and card-making supplies from KatScrappiness.Com.
October has always been my favorite time of the year to start my crafting for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. With the days getting shorter, I want to keep myself busy and create hand-made projects to give as gifts.
The first vellum LED tea light card with the skeleton was actually made a few days ago, as I wanted to display it on top of my mantle with the rest of my Halloween D.I.Y.’s.
The second card is my favorite. When I first saw this Cheery Lynn Designs Witch’s skirt die at KatScrappiness, I immediately thought of this design for a card. I thought it is pretty hilarious!
For the sake of time, I am going to keep this blog post short and show you the process video for the Witch’s Skirt/Cauldron Card and the cute Frankie Pillow Treat Box.
I hope you like the projects. Have an amazing day!
We are finally launching this amazing stamp set at www.jessicalynnoriginal.com called “Live The Life You Dream About ~ Spirit Animal”. This is a little bit of a change from Jessica’s artwork in the past, but I am so in-love with this set!
I love the dream catcher image on this set. My daughter and I love dream catchers and I have them all over my house. I even have them in my car (no joke!). The sentiments that Jess included in this stamp set are all so inspirational.
For the vellum card, I first stamped the image using Versamark ink and heat-embossed it with my white embossing powder. Once it dried and cool to the touch, I turned the vellum upside down and colored the image from the back with my Copic markers. I used R83 and R85 for the dream catcher. Once I was happy with the colors, I proceeded to die-cut my card base and the decorative scallop trims using a light tan card stock. I wanted my dream catcher to be the focus of the card. I die-cut the “Believe” script sentiment using Neenah solar white card stock, and adhered it on the front of my card. I finished the design by adding a pink vellum bow, and pearls to the dream catcher.
For the second card, I wanted the focus of the card to be all about my spirit animal. I have always believed that my spirit animal is an Owl. What better way to showcase the stamp set and Jessica’s digital stamp of Brentwood Owl by combining them both! I altered the stamp a little bit so I can adhere it to Brentwood. I wanted my card scene to look like an enchanted forest so I used my Birch Tree Window Die from Simon Says Stamp. I think using the glittered paper behind it made it more magical!
I hope you like my cards today, showcasing Spirit Animal stamp set by JessicaLynnOriginal. If you would like to purchase this stamp set, please head on over to: https://www.jessicalynnoriginal.com/jessicalynnoriginal-live-the-life-you-dream-about-spirit-animal-clear-stamp-set/
