You Made my Day with Crafty Meraki

Hello Crafty Meraki fans! Maria here on the blog with you today sharing a very simple card, showcasing the Love Potion Stamp Set.

If you are in the mood to color something beautiful, this Love Potion stamp set is perfect for that.

I started by stamping the image on some X-Press It Blending Card measuring 4 X 5 1/4.  I colored the images in with alcohol markers and adhered this panel on some A2-size notecard.

The sentiment was stamped on some black card stock with Versamark ink and heat-set with the heating tool.  I adhered it onto the card with liquid glue and finished the card design, by adding some Diamond Stickles to the “bottle” for added texture and interest. 

It really is so beautiful if you see this card in person.  Here’s another look:

I hope you like this card today and got inspired.  Below, you will find links to the supplies used to create this project(s). Where available, I use compensated affiliate links at no extra cost to you. Your support helps me to keep bringing you new projects and inspiration. Thank you for stopping by, and have an amazing day!

For Day 4, we are showcasing Newton’s Kite Stamp Set + Coordinating Dies that I paired up with the previously-released Circle Frames Die Set along with the Land Borders Die Set, Sky Scene Builder Die Set and Banner Trio Die.

I started with the background panel by ink-blending it with distress oxide ink. I used some white gouache that I diluted with water and used watercolor brush to add some splatters to the background for added texture. I adhered this panel on some A2-size notecard.

Next, I die-cut the window by using one of the dies from the Circle Frames Die Set and foam-mounted this onto the card. I added the grass that I die-cut using the Land Borders Die Set, and the clouds from the Sky Scene Builder Die Set.

The focal image was stamped on some X-Press It Blending Card and colored with alcohol markers. I used the coordinating die to cut the image out and foam-mounted to the focal panel.

I finished the card design by adding the sentiment that I heat-embossed and die-cut using one of the dies from the Banner Trio Die Set. Here’s another peek at the card:

Birthday Slimline Card with Crafty Meraki

Hello Crafty Meraki fans!  Who’s excited for the weekend?!  I have a super cute Slimline Birthday Card to share with you today, featuring the Flamin’ Birthday stamp set and Flamin’ Birthday Para-Dies, along with the Outside the Box Slimline Die.

I started by stamping the images on some Neenah solar white card stock using some alcohol-friendly ink.  I colored the images in with alcohol markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them all out.

Next, I adhered some patterned paper onto a slimline card base.  I die-cut the white frame using the Outside the Box slimline die and foam-mounted this onto the card panel for added dimension.

The colored images were then added to the focal panel with foam adhesive.  I finished the card design by adding the sentiment that I stamped and heat-set on some black card stock.

These cute little dragons are one of my favorite from the latest release.  The images are so ADORABLE, don’t you think?!  Below, you will find links to the supplies used to create this project(s).
