Chocolate Shaker Card with Kat Scrappiness

Are you looking for a simple Valentine’s Day card without all the hearts and romantic stuff? Or just a simple “just-because” card to brighten someone’s day?  For my project today, I am showcasing the Layered Chocolate Bar 6″ x 8″ stamp set, the Chocolate Lover’s Sentiment stamp set, Sparkling Manhattan sequin mix, Distressed Edge Rectangle dies and the Wonky Wavy Stitched Rectangle dies.

I started out by stamping the layered chocolate bar stamp using my Tim Holtz Tonic stamp platform with my memento tuxedo black ink.  I used my precision-cut scissors to fuzzy-cut the images.

I also cut the little chocolate squares to add to my project.

It has been awhile since I made a shaker card so I thought I’d make them today.  I die-cut my 110 lb. white card stock with the wonky wavy stitched dies.  I die-cut the middle using the second of the largest piece of the distressed edge rectangle dies to create the window.

I cut a piece of acetate to cover the window and adhered the chocolate bar at the bottom left side corner.  I added some 3M foam tape.  I decided to use my Cinnamon Swirl Mix sequins for my shaker element and the chocolate squares but since the sequin mix I used is not available anymore at the store, you can also use the Sparkling Manhattan sequin mix.  to finish the design, I stamped my sentiment using my Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink to give it a little bit of color.

Here’s the close-up of the card:

I love this stamp set because the chocolate image looks so realistic!  There are so many possibilities using this stamp set.

Easy Last-Minute Christmas Gift Tags

Are you looking for some easy, last minute Christmas gift tags ideas?  I am sharing 4 tags that you can easily mass-produce, showcasing the Waffle Flower Crafts Special Delivery stamp set and die set, with the Doodlebug Milk and Cookies Odds and Ends, and the Stitched Scalloped Nesting Tag Dies by Kat Scrappiness, available at the shop.

Using my new favorite Sharpie White Paint Pen, I added some white polka dots on the images then die-cut them using the coordinating die.   I also die-cut the tags using the Stitched Scalloped Nesting Tag dies on white card stock.  I used an embossing die from my stash to add some details on my tag.

I adhered the images onto my white tags, and added the Gingerbread Men from Doodlebug and sequins on the red bows, using the Sparkling Clear Slid Confetti mix.  Here are the tags:

I am sharing some cute tags today showcasing the Kat Scrappiness Naughty stamp set and die, with the Gerda Steiner Peeking Friends stamp set, Stitched Scalloped Nesting Tag Dies and Pop-Out die, plus a bunch of other supplies available at the shop.

I stamped my images on Neenah solar white card stock with my memento tuxedo black ink using my Tim Holtz Stamp Platform.  I colored my images in with Copic markers.   Since I didn’t have the die for the Gerda Steiner stamp set, I fuzzy-cut them with my scissors.  I also die-cut the naughty sentiment die on black card stock twice.

I die-cut 4 tags using the stitched scalloped nesting tag dies on white card stock, as well as 4 tags with the Doodblebug Christmas patterned paper.  I used the pop-out die to die-cut the window on the patterned paper.  I adhered the images first on the white card stock, and then adhered the patterned paper on top.  To finish my design, I stamped the sentiment on black card stock for two of the tags with VersaMark ink and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder.

Here are my Christmas tags today:

Toil and Troubled by Kat Scrappiness

Hello my crafty peeps!  I hope you are having a great day so far!  I am back today for Kat Scrappiness, showcasing the new Halloween Stamp Set called Toil and Troubled Layer stamp set, Cross-stitched Rectangle Dies, Spooky Sparkles Sequin Mix and the Waves Border Dies. Just a little heads up, I will have a haul video soon on my YouTube channel showing you a sneak peek of my huge giveaway coming up next month around Thanksgiving!  Please stay tuned for that announcement.  If you are not subscribed to my channel yet (www.youtube.com/rprmlr772), you need to head on over there because you wouldn’t want to miss new process videos of craft projects I have lined up, plus of course the giveaways I do regularly.

I started out by stamping the cat image with my stamping tool, using two light gray inks,  the Simon Says Stamp Fog Ink and Lawn Fawn Hippo Ink.  I have the coordinating die for the cat but I didn’t want a black border around it so I fuzzy-cut it with my precision tip scissors.

I used the biggest of the Cross-stitched rectangle die to die-cut my card front with a light gray card stock, and used a die from my stash to create the spooky window scene.  I wanted to do a fun shaker card and use one of my all-time favorite sequin mixes by Kat, called Spooky Sparkles Sequin Mix.   I covered my little spooky scene with the Dovecraft Heat-resistant Acetate sheets.

I die-cut my spider-web with the Lawn Fawn Spider Web die, adhering it with my Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive, and also adhered my Black Cat and the Waves Border Die.  I finished the design by adding the little ghosts from the Boo-tacular Sequin Mix and stamped the sentiment.  Here’s the card:

For my card, I am showcasing products available at the shop.  The card that I created below is very simple and anyone can re-create it.  I know that some of you are just beginners, and don’t really have a lot of supplies.  I wanted to show you that you could create a beautiful card even with just using a patterned paper, and some die-cuts.

I started out by die-cutting my cute little witch using the Witch with Cat Die by Gina Marie Designs.   I also die-cut the Stitched Heart Tag Die and the Cross-Stitched Rectangle Dies for my card front.  I fuzzy-cut the tombstones and the Happy Halloween sentiment strip from the BOOtiful Night 6×6 Paper Pad by American Crafts.

I wanted a small shaker element on my card, without making it look too busy.  I used black fun-foam (instead of a foam adhesive) and run it through my Xyron Creative Station Lite with a Double Permanent Adhesive to create a sticker.  This will ensure that both sides of the fun foam will have edge-to-edge adhesive and your shaker elements will be completely secure!  I used some of my favorite Halloween sequin mixes, i.e. the Spooky Sparkles Sequin Mix and the Autumn Harvest sequin mix.   I adhered the tag on my card base.

To finish the design, I die-cut a stitched hill die from my stash, then adhered it onto the card front, with my cute little witch and the tombstones.  I stamped the spider web and the little spider using a stamp from Newton’s Nook Designs, and added some white dots with my Uni-ball Impact Bold Point White Gel Pen.

Here is the finished card and I hope you like it.

Pumpkin Spice in my Latte

Hello my crafty friends.  I am up for Kat Scrappiness today to share with you a simple coffee-themed shaker tag, showcasing products available at the shop.

I started out by stamping my images using the Pumpkin Spice Stamp Set and Dies by Lawn Fawn on Neenah solar white with my Memento Tuxedo black ink.  I colored the images in with my Copic markers and die-cut them with its coordinating.

I wanted to create a cute shaker tag to use some new sequins from the shop, the Teal Woodgrain Flat and 6mm Orange AB Hallow Circle mix so I die-cut a medium tag using my Kat Scrappiness Stitched Scalloped Nesting Dies with the Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Fall Collection Paper Pad.  I stamped my sentiment onto my tag, and assembled the shaker tag.

I hope you like my shaker tag.  I have also listed and linked the supplies I used below if you’re interested.  Please use my coupon code Maria10 for 10% off your order at the shop.  Have an amazing day!
