Hello my crafty peeps! Maria here with you today and I’m back with a Christmas card, showcasing the Merry Critters stamp set. I LOVE this stamp set so much and I just couldn’t wait to play with it.
I started by stamping my images on Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in with my Copic markers. The little yellow bird reminds me so much of tweety! Here’s what the stamp set look like:
Since this stamp set didn’t come with coordinating dies, I die-cut the images using my Brother Scan N Cut 2.
I inked up my background with some distress oxide inks. I ahve been loving the Tumbled Glass and Spun Sugar color combination lately! It gives the perfect wintery-sky! Here’s my card:
I used some white glittered card stock as well to create my snow hill. I think this card turned out so cute. Here’s a little close-up:

Hello my crafty friends! I am back today with this cute Halloween Card, showcasing the Crafter’s Essentials – Fall Die Set, Stitched Scalloped Border Dies, some Purple Jewels and Distress Oxide inks.
I have a video tutorial for you today (link below) so I will keep this blog post short. Here’s my card:
I love the “evening sky” colors I blended using my distress oxide inks. I didn’t want to use the typical orange and black for Halloween. Here’s a little close-up:
Don’t you just LOVE the stitching details to the die-cuts? Also love the Purple Jewels. It just adds a little more oomph to the overall card design.

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!
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:

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”.

Howdy Kat Scrappiness fans! Maria here on the blog today with a simple card, showcasing the Crafter’s Essentials 1 die set. If you are waiting for this die-set, you are in luck because they are arriving back in stock next week! If you haven’t ordered this yet, you can now reserve it so that you don’t have to wait again.
To make things easier for me, I started out by choosing a sketch pattern from the Kat Scrappiness site (you can see this photo on the product sample). I downloaded this sketch and inserted this piece in the envelope with the dies so I can use them for my future projects. Sometimes, it is helpful to have it when you’re not feeling crafty! I am having one of those days since the majority of my supplies are currently loaded in a shipping container, en-route to our home in FL.
I die-cut some A2 size card stock with the rounded-edge rectangle die. I used the same die to die-cut a patterned paper.
I used the long strip die that is included in the set to die-cut another piece of some white card stock (slightly a different color from my card base). I also used the stars die to die-cut one pin pink, blue and yellow.
I stamped my images on some Neenah solar white card stock and colored it in with my Copic markers. I die-cut the image with the coordinating die. To finish my design, I stamped the sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black ink and used my belli-roll pen to add more details to the images. Here’s my card:
I love the simplicity of this card. I didn’t do a lot as you can tell, but it turned out really cute! This sketch is also perfect to create a “Welcome Baby” card. Here’s another look:
This Crafter’s Essentials 1 die setis definitely a must-have for any paper crafter. I think the little stitched star die is just the right size to add to your projects. I love the stitching details to it as well.
I hope you like my card today. Please don’t forget to use my coupon code “MARIA10” for 10% off your order at the shop. Don’t forget to check the clearance section too! I wish you all a wonderful day! Happy crafting!
I’m so excited to share today’s post because we are launching a new product at Kat Scrappiness called Crafter’s Essentials 2 die set. This set includes 8 steel rule dies. You can also pair them up with the Crafter’s Essentials 1 die set and you will have endless design possibilities. Here’s what it looks like:
I made two cards today to showcase the Crafter’s Essentials 2 die set and I have a process video for the mermaid card that you will see below.
For my first card, I used an older stamp set from my stash and made a simple card. I love the stitching details on the banner and the bigger dies.
I also used the Everyday Brush Strokes stamp set for my sentiment. Don’t you just love the chevron pattern on the big die? Here’s another look:
I added some black dots on the card base to give it a little bit more dimension. Here’s a little close-up:
For my second card, I wanted to create a happy, summer-themed card. I used a stamp set that I recently purchased with this cute cat mermaid. I also used the Sunscape stencil die by Newton’s Nook Designs.
I started out by inking up some Bristol smooth white card stock with Squeezed Lemonadeand Spiced Marmalade distress oxide inkwith my mini ink blending tool. Since I have a process video for this card, I will keep this blog post short.
I inlaid the little chevron pieces on my card. I also added the Sparkling Clear Jewels to make them look like bubbles. Here’s a little close-up:
This card makes me happy. I love the colors that I used and this die-set is a must-have! Here’s another look:
Here’s my process video:

I really love how this card turned out. There are so many possibilities using this Crafter’s Essentials 1 die-set. I also love all of the stitching details! Here another look:
