Wine Cards with the September Release by Kat Scrappiness

Hello Kat Scrappiness fans! Back today with some simple cards featuring the new Peacock Backdrop die, the Wine Not stamp set and the Wine Not Custom craft dies.

For my first card, I started out by die-cutting the Peacock Backdrop diesome Bristol smooth white card stock.  I inked up this piece with some squeezed lemonade, spiced marmalade and picked raspberry distress oxide inks with my mini ink blending tool.  I set this piece aside to dry while I worked on die-cutting the Wine Not Custom craft dies.  I used Neenah smooth white card stock to color the bottle with my Copic markers and used a silver card stock for the wine glass.  I added glossy accents to make it look more realistic.   I also die-cut a frame by using the double stitched rectangle die and the stitched rectangle die.  Here’s the first card:

I adorned my card with some images from a stamp set by Newton’s Nook and also added the beautiful Champagne jewels.  I love the new jewels collection from the shop.  They are available in a variety of colors.  Here’s another look:

For my second card, I die-cut the pieces again with some Neenah solar white card stock and colored the die-cut pieces with my Copic markers.  I inked up an A2 size piece of some Bristol smooth white card stock with a stencil from my stash.   I stamped the sentiment from the Wine Not stamp set.  Here’s my second card:

To finish the design, I also added the cheers sentiment from my stash and the tiny bow is from a die-set by Lawn Fawn.  Here’s another look:

For my third card, I wanted to create something simple just using the Wine Not stamp set.  I die-cut a piece of some Neenah solar white card stock with the Stitched Fancy Scalloped rectangle die.  I colored the images in with my Copic markers.  To finish my design, I stamped the sentiment using Versafine Vintage Sepia ink.

I hope you like my cards today.  Which one is your favorite?  The supplies I used are listed and linked below.  Don’t forget to use my coupon code “MARIA10” for 10% off your order at the shop.  Have a nice day!

Trick or Treat Card with Kat Scrappiness

I know it’s only August but I like working on my Halloween cards as early as possible as I make quite a few of them to send to friends.  For my card today I am showcasing the Stitched Scalloped Collage Frame Die, the Lawn Fawn Halloween set and the new Gold Jewels mix and 3mm Transparent Neon yellow Solid Star Confetti mix.

I started out by stamping my images on Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in with my alcohol markers.  Since I don’t have the coordinating dies for my images I used my Brother Scan N Cut 2 to die-cut them.  I also die-cut the Stitched Scalloped Collage Frame die with some black card stock and used my foam adhesive to create my little well for my shaker card.

I assembled my shaker card and stamped my sentiment on some orange card stock using the banner die that is included in the Crafter’s Essentials 1 die set.  This die-set is probably one of my all-time favorite dies to use for my projects.

Here’s my card:

I didn’t use the traditional orange and black sequins because I felt that it would have overwhelmed the whole card design.

I love how this card turned out.  The new Gold Jewels mix is beautiful!  Here’s another look:

I Craft Therefore I Hoard

Hello my crafty friends! I hope you are all having a great week so far. Maria here with you today and I am back to share with you two card samples showcasing the new Crafter’s Gonna Craft stamp set, with the new Stitched Scalloped Collage Frame Die.

I have been super busy traveling for the last few weeks that I don’t have a step-by-step instruction for you.  I guess if you are a card maker or a scrapbooker, you would have figured out how I made the cards already but I apologize if you are a beginner.  Please know that once I am back on a regular schedule, I will have a step-by-step tutorial or even a YouTube video. I promise!  Here’s my first simple, one-layer card:

 

This new stamp set is a must-have for any paper crafter!  Here’s another look:

 

My second card just cracks me up!  If you are a crafter, I am sure you can relate with the sentiment.

 

 

Isn’t it true though?  I am such a hoarder.  I collect anything and everything that I can use for a future project, it drives my husband nuts!  I didn’t realize how much hoarding I’ve been doing until it was time to pack up most of my craft supplies to move it all back to my home in Florida.

 

I also LOVE the new sparkling jewels at the shop.  They come in different colors but my favorite is the clear, sparkling one that I used on my project.  I prefer adhering it flat-side up and I think it gives more shine.

I hope you like my projects today.  Please don’t forget to check out the August release by Kat Scrappiness.  The new dies are must-haves for sure!  Don’t forget to use my coupon code “MARIA10” for 10% off your order.  Also, don’t forget to check out the Lawn Fawn items that are currently on sale at the shop for 20% off by using code “LAWNFAWN”.  It is only valid until August 12th.  Have an amazing day and happy crafting!

(We’re) Made For Each Other – M.F.E.O. with Ghost Inlaid Technique

Hello Kat Scrappiness fans! I hope you are all having a great week so far.  I’m back on the blog today sharing with you this cute card, featuring the Punny Snacks stamp set, the Condensed Lower Case Alpha Dies and the new Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Dies.  I love the new scalloped dies so much.

I don’t know about you, but I like to keep a stash of “just-because” cards to give to family and friends.  I love the “Ghost Inlaid Technique” that I added to this card using the Condensed Lowercase Alphabet Dies and even though it looks complicated, it really isn’t.  I have a process video for you all today (linked below) so I will keep this blog post short.

Here’s what the card looks like.  I added some cute girly, eyelashes to the soda image on the left side.

Also added some black polka dots to the whole background to finish it off.  I LOVE the cute little smiley faces from the Punny Snack stamp set.  They are adorable!

This M.F.E.O. Quote is one of my favorite scenes from the movie, Sleepless in Seattle.  I thought it was really funny!

Clean and Simple Cards with Punny Snacks Stamp Set

Last week, I talked to a crafty friend and she told me that she was so sad because the card she gave to a co-worker was thrown out.  She said that she has put so much work and effort on making the card and she was expecting the co-worker to appreciate it and at least keep it!  I know how she feels!  Which is why sometimes, you just need to work on clean and simple cards to give out to other people.  I only really give my “special cards”  to friends and family who I know will appreciate them a lot.

 

For todays card, I am showcasing the Punny Snacks stamp set, with Wonky Wavy Stitched Rectangle Dies and a bunch of other supplies available at the shop.

 

The Punny Snacks stamp set is perfect to create some clean and simple cards.  Don’t get me wrong, I also used this stamp set to make some very elaborate (special) cards but these images are so cute and simple and you can even create just a one-layer card.  It’s good to have a bunch of these cards in your stash for “just-because” kind of days.

 

I have a process video for you below.  I hope this inspired you to create some clean and simple cards!   I also listed and linked the supplies I used below.  Have a wonderful day!

Easter Peeps with Kat Scrappiness

Hello my crafty peeps! (pun intended! haha!)  I am back today to share with you some fun Easter cards, showcasing the Stitched Easter Bunny outline dies, the Never-ending Circle dies, Brush Script Happy Easter die, Fancy Scalloped Stitched Border dies, and a bunch of other supplies available at the shop.

I started out by die-cutting my bunnies with different colored card stocks.  For one of the bunnies, I adhered some googly-eyes and drew the mouth with my black Copic multi-liner pen.  I colored the cheeks and the ears with my R00 Copic marker.

I die-cut a piece of Bristol smooth white card stock and inked the background with Tattered Rose and Worn Lipstick distress oxide, using my mini-ink blending tool.  I sprayed the background with water to give it a distress look.  I used the Fancy Scalloped Stitched Border dies to give my card stock a decorative edge.  I die-cut another piece in light blue to layer it together.  I adhered this piece onto my card base.

I die-cut another piece of white card stock using my Rectangle Stick Frame by Your Next stamp, also available at the shop, and adhered this piece on my foreground.    My stamped my sentiment using my Tim Holtz Stamping Platform.

Using a mini action wobbler,  I adhered the bunny in the center of the frame.

Here’s my first card:

For my second card, I colored another piece of Bristol smooth card stock with my Broken China, Worn Lipstick and Wild Honey distress oxides.  I used the Never-Ending circle dies to cut some circles on my foreground.  I adhered this piece to my colored background with my foam tape to give it some dimension.  I adhered the cute peeps on each circle.

I finished my design by adhering some white pompoms on the bunnies, and added the script sentiment “Happy” from the Brush Script Happy Easter die and stamped the sentiment “EASTER”.  I also used my white gel pen to add some details to the script sentiment.  Here’s my second card:

Aren’t these cards so much fun?  I love how they turned out.  I hope you got inspired today.  I have also listed and linked the supplies I used below.  Have an amazing day and happy crafting!

Kat Scrappiness Large Alpha Dies with Lawn Fawn

Hello my crafty friends.  I am back today to share with you a simple Valentine’s Day card, showcasing the new Large Alphabet dies and Christmas Red Sequins by Kat Scrappiness,   Lawn Fawn Sweet Friends stamp set and Lawn Fawn Sweet Friends coordinating dies, plus other supplies available at the shop.

I started out by stamping my images on Neenah Solar white card stock and I colored the images in with my Copic markers.   I cut another 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece of Bristol Smooth white card stock and used my Tumbling Hearts stencil to create my background, with my Worn Lipstick distress oxide ink and the ink blending tool.

IMG_7065

I wanted to create a Valentine’s Day shaker card and also use the new Large Alphabet Dies.  I chose the letters, X and O and used my die-cutting machine to cut my background.  I covered it with my acetate and used my foam tape to create my shaker window.  I have been meaning to use the Christmas Red sequins and thought that this was the perfect color to use as my shaker element.

IMG_7064

To finish my design, I added my little Froyo images and stamped my sentiment.  I also added the little strawberries to the Froyo and covered it with glossy accents.  Here is the card:
