Thankful For You – Kat Scrappiness – Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

FallCoffeeLoversBlogHop Photo

I am so excited to share with you today’s post!  It is that time of the year again.  Falling leaves, sweater weather (at least for some of you), pumpkin spice, and the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Amy Tsuruta and the rest of her team responsible for facilitating this great hop!  I don’t know how you guys do it but you all rock!

Today I made a card showcasing products from the #KatScrappiness shop (www.katscrappiness.com).    THERE IS A SPECIAL COUPON CODE at the shop from September 15th to September 22nd only, so hurry and shop for all the crafty products you’ve always wanted (use coupon code: “COFFEEHOP” for 15% off your order).  THERE IS ALSO A GIVEAWAY!  Kat is a super sponsor and is giving away a $25 gift card from her shop.  Please check all of the details for the giveaway on the www.coffeelovingcardmakers.com.

Here’s my card today and I also have a process video for you if you’d like to see how I made the card.  I didn’t have the dies for this stamp set so I will also show you how I cut the image, using my Brother Scan N Cut 2.  I love this machine and even though it is quite the investment, it will save you money because you don’t really have to buy coordinating dies anymore. [The part where I was showing you how I used the ScanNCut on the video was a bit shaky so I apologize for that.  It was hard to film and do the cutting at the same time. I will be better next time] .

Blessed To Be Your Friend

Hello everyone! I am back to share with you a very special card that I made, dedicated to our Kat Scrappiness Design Team Coordinator, Deb Peterson Rauch.  I am showcasing the Bear and Bird stamp set and its coordinating dies, the Concord & 9th Tree Ring Background stamp, Kat Scrappiness Double-stitched rectangle dies and the Blessed Scripty dies, plus other products available at the shop.

I will not have any step-by-step instructions or a process video for this card. It is very simple but I love how it turned out.

This card is dedicated to Deb. I am “blessed to be Deb’s friend”. Deb has a huge heart. When I got sick, a few weeks ago, Deb has been (and still is) such a great confidant to me! She was my constant support during those times when I feel like I would never get better. When I start panicking with the pains I had, I would constantly send Deb a message and ask her so many medical questions and she would immediately give me answers, advice, support and recommendations. It didn’t matter what she was doing that day, she would always send me a reply and make me feel “safe” and less paranoid. Both Deb and Kathleen understood that I had to take it easy and need time to heal.  Thank you, Kathleen Driggers. Thank you, Deb for all the things that you do, for being my friend, and a great DT Coordinator. This card is for you:

I hope you like the card today and got inspired. The supplies I have used are listed and linked below. Have a blessed and wonderful day!

Prayers & Hugs Coming Your Way

Hello everyone! It’s Maria Russell here with you today. It’s been awhile since I made a project for Kat Scrappiness. I was traveling for two weeks and if you have been following me here on my blog, you’ll probably know that I got sick. I am on the mend now but it is taking a lot longer than expected which is making me a little miserable!

I apologize that I don’t have a process video for you today because it takes awhile for me to create a project right now. I can’t sit still for so long and look down so I constantly take a break and walk so I don’t get any pains. Please bear with me as I get better and I promise to make more process videos once I am over this hump.

For my shaker card today, I am showcasing the Hero Arts Color Layering Poppy Stamps and Dies, the Prayers Stamps and Die set, with the Wood Floorboard Prints Cling stamp, as well as the White Diamond sequin mix by Kat Scrappiness, and a lot more supplies available at Kat Scrappiness online store.

I started out by stamping and layering my images on Neenah solar white card stock using three Lawn Fawn Ballet Slippers, Guava and Lobster ink. I die-cut the flowers using the coordinating dies.

I stamped my background using the wood floorboard cling stamp with light- gray ink. I wanted a subtle background for my card because I wanted the main focal point to stand out, which are the poppies!

I die-cut the prayers die using a dark gray card stock, and stamped my sentiment using the Hippo Ink on my card front.

I ran my flowers, branches and die cut sentiment using my favorite Xyron sticker maker and Mega Tape Runner. I also adhered my acetate sheet using glue dots, and created my shaker window panel with scotch foam tape. I added my favorite White Diamond sequin mix by Kat Scrappiness and adhered my window panel to my card base.

I finished off my design by sponging my Neenah white card stock with the Tim Holtz worn lipstick distressed oxide ink to match the color of the dot details on my shaker card.

Here is the card. I hope you like it and got inspired today. The supplies I have used are listed and linked below. Have a great weekend!

DCWV/Xyron – Tag Mini Album

Hello my crafty friends! I am so excited to share with you today’s post because the Xyron design team is teaming up with DCWV.  My project today is an inspirational Tag/Mini Album, using stamps from my stash, showcasing this beautiful paper pack by DCWV called “Meet Me in Paris”.  A huge “thank you” to DCWV and Xyron for all of the amazing products we got to play with. They are extremely beautiful!

 

Here are the supplies I got to play with.

IMG_4805

I started out by die-cutting my tags using the beautiful paper packs and a tag die by Kat Scrappiness.  I distressed the tags with my distress ink using my sponge to make the tags look a little more vintage.   I also used my Xyron mega tape runner to adhere both tags to make it a little more sturdy.

 

For my tag below, I used an Eiffel tower die from my stash that I die-cut in gold.   I then used my Xyron Creative Station Lite to adhere the die-cut on my first tag.  I did the same process for all of my tags.

 

Here are the photos of the individual tags.  The first one is a shaker tag:

Here’s a photo of all of the tags.  I really love how it turned out:

XyronTagAll

Here’s what the tag mini album look like with the binder clip.  I also embellished the album with a gold tassel and a silver key.

I hope you got inspired today and like my project.  If you are interested to purchase DCWV paper packs, they are available online at http://www.joann.com.
