Winter Release by Kat Scrappiness

Happy weekend! There’s a new release by Kat Scrappiness, Inc. and it is full of holiday cheer! I honestly cannot even choose a favorite! For my samples today, I am featuring the Wreath Die, Build A Bow Dies, Snowflake Trio Dies, Pink Sapphire Rhinestone Mix along with the Joy Word Die with Shadow, Nativity Scene Backdrop Die and Noel Word Die with Shadow.

Here’s how I made this card:

  • create the background panel by die-cutting some Snowflakes using the Snowflake Trio Dies, and adhering on some A2-size panel. Adhere the snowflakes randomly and add this panel on some A2-size notecard. [Designer’s tip: adhering the snowflakes on the background added some subtle texture and interest to the card without overwhelming the whole design].
  • die-cut the Wreath Die twice using some rose gold card stock. Adhere on the card panel with foam-adhesive for added dimension.
  • die-cut the Joy Word Die with Shadow also with the rose gold card stock and some Neenah solar white card stock. Adhere on the card with foam adhesive.
  • add some Pink Sapphire Rhinestone Mix with liquid glue.
  • finish the card design by die-cutting the Build A Bow Dies on some white glitter card stock and adhere on the card with foam adhesive to make everything look cohesive.

The next card is quite simple as well but I really LOVE the way this one turned out!

Winter Mugs Card with Pretty Pink Posh

Hello my crafty friends! Happy Friday! As I wait for my household effects to be shipped to the new house and dream about crafting again, I want to share this card that I made a few weeks ago mixing some new and old products by Pretty Pink Posh. This is also my entry for the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

For my project today, I am showcasing the Winter Mug Dies, along with the Winter Foliage Dies, Pine Wreath Stamp Set (sentiment) Layered Winter Foliage Stencils, Scallop Frames Dies and one of my favorite older dies called Twine and Bows.

Here’s how I made this card:

  • die-cut the blue frame on some light blue card stock using the Scallop Frames Dies. Adhere this panel on the card with foam adhesive for added dimension.
  • assemble the mug, candy canes, pinecones etc.
  • use some light pink alcohol marker to color the marshmallows.
  • adhere the die-cuts together and foam-mount on the card using two layers of foam adhesive. This will make sure that the mug stands out a bit from the background.
  • stamp the sentiment on some red card stock using the word “joy” from the Pine Wreath Stamp Set.
  • sprinkle some white embossing powder and heat set with the heating tool.
  • adhere the sentiment with foam adhesive to finish the design.

I just love to mix and match some old and new stamps and dies to create this card. Here’s another look:

From Meow to You with Kat Scrappiness

I am currently in the process of moving to another destination overseas with hubby, so this project was made awhile back. I wanted to share this today since this card is super adorable, and features new products from the latest release by Kat Scrappiness, Inc.

Here’s how I made this card:

  • prepare the background panel by ink-blending some Bristol Smooth white card stock with Distress Oxide inks.
  • use some Distress Sprayer to spray some water on the background. Pick up the excess water using some paper towel.
  • use the Stitched Nesting Hexagon Die to die-cut the window.
  • use some washi tape to temporarily adhere the Ball of Yarn Stencil to the ink-blended panel.
  • for added texture, apply some white deco-foil gel with a palette knife and gently lift the stencil. Leave this panel to dry for about half an hour.
  • adhere the background on some A2-size notecard.
  • die-cut the frame by using two of the Stitched Nesting Hexagon Dies on some white glitter card stock.
  • foam-mount the frame for added dimension.
  • adhere the hexagon die-cut on the window.
  • finish the design by stamping the sentiment onto the card using the Pawsome Cats Sentiments Stamp Set with some Versafine Onyx Black Ink and adhere some red heart for some fun texture.

3 Last-Minute Halloween Cards with Matching Envelopes | LDRS Creative

Hello my crafty friends! Are you all done creating Halloween Cards yet?! If you are looking to create some last-minute Halloween cards without the fuss of stamping and coloring images, here’s a cute project for you (or should I say, a couple?)!  These cards are so easy to make and they have cute matching envelopes to boot!

For today’s projects, I am showcasing the Trick-or-Treat 6×6 Halloween Paper Pack, along with the A2 Diagonal Stitched Layered Card ToppersLarge Word Halloween DiesA2 Envelope Dies and A2 Envelope Liner Die.  Let me just tell you that the new A2 Envelope Dies with the A2 Envelope Liner Die are SO EASY to put together and they look like you bought them from a stationery store!

All 3 cards (and envelopes) were made the same way!  If I wasn’t running out of the Trick-or-Treat Halloween Paper, I could have made more, to be honest!

I started by die-cutting the sentiments using the Large Word Halloween Dies [this die-set is another favorite of mine from the latest release] on some different colors of card stock.  I adhered them together with liquid glue.

Next, the background panel was die-cut using the A2 Diagonal Stitched Layered Card Toppers Die and adhered on some black A2-size notecard.  I foam-mounted the Halloween Sentiments onto the card for added dimension.  Easy peasy and I’m done with all three cards!  However, I wanted to add some matching envelopes to finish the design.  I used the A2 Envelope Dies and the A2 Envelope Liner Die to die-cut some black and gray card stock and the matching Halloween Paper that I used to create the cards.  I adhered them together using some strong adhesive.  Here’s another look at the finished projects:

For Day 3, we are showcasing the Christmas Nap Stamp Set + Coordinating Dies with the Newton’s Gift Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies.

I started by stamping my images on some X-Press It Blending Card and colored the images in with alcohol markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

Next, I ink-blended some Bristol Smooth white card stock and covered the bottom part with masking tape. I used the Starfield Stencil and Antique Linen Distress oxide ink with my blending brush. I removed the masking tape and lightly ink-blended the same color at the bottom of the panel. I adhered this on some A2-size white notecard.

I added the focal image on the card with foam adhesive for more dimension. I stamped the sentiment using Versamark ink on a strip of red card stock. I sprinkled some white embossing powder and heat-set with the heating tool, adhering the sentiment with liquid glue. Here’s another look:

My next project was also stamped on some X-Press It blending card and die-cut with the coordinating die. I also die-cut the tag using the Fancy Edges Tag Die Set with the new Canine Christmas Paper Pad and some Neenah solar white card stock, adhering them with liquid glue.

The focal image was foam-mounted onto the tag for added dimension.

I finished the tag by adding some red ribbon and gold jingle bell, then stamped the sentiment with some red dye ink. Here’s another look:
