Newton’s Nook Designs – Falling For You

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!



MFT Stamps – Beast Friends

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?

KatScrappiness & Newton’s Nook Breast Cancer Awareness Card Challenge

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.

Halloween Cards & Frankie Treat Box


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!

Live the Life You Dream About-JessicaLynn Original Stamps


We are finally launching this amazing stamp set at 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:

Have a great weekend!
