I have a special post today as we reveal some new slimline dies, background cover plate and stamp sets from Kat Scrappiness.  These new dies are AMAZING and definitely cheaper than what’s available out there in the market!  You need to hurry and order them soon before they sell out! 

 

There is also a GIVEAWAY for today and tomorrow at the KS Blog so if you would like to participate, head on over to the blog post (click here) and leave a comment there for a chance to win a $25 gift card that you can spend to get anything you want from the shop!

 

Before I show you the products, I just want you all to know that Kat Scrappiness is also having a 4th of July weekend “SITEWIDE” sale (excludes Slimline products).  Use the coupon code (FREEDOM) to get 15% off your entire order.

 

 

For my projects today, I am showcasing two new slimline dies.  The Cityscape Slimline dies and the Double-stitched nesting slimline dies.  Here’s what they look like:

 

 

 

 

To make my first card, I created the background by die-cutting masking paper using the Nesting Circle dies.  I ink-blended a Bristol smooth panel with Chipped Sapphire, Faded Jeans, Wilted Violet and Black Soot.  I used a paintbrush to flick some water on the colored panel and dabbed it with paper towel to dry.  Removing the mask revealed the full moon.  I used the Cityscape slimline die to die-cut it in black and kept it simple by adhering it to the colored panel with liquid glue. 

 

 

I finished the design by stamping the sentiment with Versafine Onyx black ink and added an enamel heart.  Here’s a closer look:

 

 

 

For my second card, I wanted to showcase the Cityscape slimline die on an A2 size card to show versatility, die-cutting it a couple of times with some Bristol smooth white card stock and inking them up with some distress oxide inks in rainbow order.

 

 

I used the Sunscape stencil to create a subtle hue for my background.  I finished the design by adding the sentiment from the Everyday Brush Stroke stamp set.  Here’s a closer look:

 

 

I went for a simple card for my third sample for you.  I die-cut the panel using the Double-Stitched Nesting Slimline dies and stamped the rainbows and other images a few times on the card.  The new Catherine Pooler inks are my favorite! 

 

The frame was foam-mounted for added dimension and to finish the design, I added some Sparkling clear jewels.  They are my favorite to use for cards!

 

 

Here’s a closer look:

I hope I have given you some card-making/stamping inspiration today.  The supplies I use are listed and linked below.  Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!

Two Slimline Cards with Kat Scrappiness Dies

Did you know that Kat Scrappiness came out with two Slimline dies?  The Embossed Edge Nesting Slimline Dies and Stitched Scalloped Nesting Slimline Dies.  They are AMAZING!   Here’s what they look like:

 

 

 

For my cards today, I am also showcasing the Koala-Ty Time stamp set along with other supplies available at the shop.  They are of course listed and linked below.

 

For my first card, I die-cut a panel of Bristol smooth white card stock using the new Embossed Edge Nesting Slimline die.  and ink-blended this with salty ocean, peacock feathers and chipped sapphire distress oxide inks.  I used the Ray of Light stencil with a baby wipe to achieve the look of sun rays shining on the water.  Since distress oxide inks are water reactive, it took some color out of the card stock and it made it look more realistic.  I die-cut another panel to create the sand with more distress oxide inks and used my alcohol markers to create more texture.

 

I stamped, colored and die-cut the images and foam mounted the sand on my card.  I also adhered the images that I colored with either foam or liquid adhesive.  The sea weed and coral were die-cut using a die from my stash and colored with alcohol markers.

 

I stamped the little fishies from the BB Mermazing stamp set.  Lastly, I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx black ink.

 

 

I love how this card turned out.

 

 

For my second card, I used the Stitched Scalloped Nesting Slimline die to die-cut another panel of Bristol smooth white card stock.   I used the Clouds and Grass stencils from Newton’s Nook Designs to create the colorful clouds and grass hills on this panel.

 

I stamped my image and colored them in with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and die-cut using my Scan N Cut machine.    I adhered the images with some liquid glue.

 

Lastly, I die-cut another panel using the biggest die from the nesting set to mat my card and adhered on my slimline card base measuring 3 1/2 by 8 1/2.  I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx black ink.

 

 

Both slimline dies cut like butter and as with any other Kat Scrappiness dies, they are pretty inexpensive compared to other dies available in the market.   Here’s another look at my card:

 

 

I hope you like my cards and got inspired today.  Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!

You Make Me Jump For Joy and I Love ‘Roo cards with Kat scrappiness

Hello Kat Scrappiness fans!  I have some fun projects for you today showcasing A LOT of products available at the shop.

 

Before I start with the post, I just want you guys to know that there is a 20% site-wide sale going on and you can use the coupon code mentioned below.  Take advantage of this sale and get your favorite products while you can:

 

 

For my project today, I am showcasing the Hoppy For you stamp set, along with the Yellow Star Sprinkles, Pink Flower Sprinkles, Wood Grain Frame Die, Stitched Cloud Backdrop die and the Mandala Frame die.

 

I started out by stamping the images on Spectrum Noir Ulta Smooth Premium White card stock using Spectrum Noir Finesse Alcohol-Proof Black ink.  I colored the images in with my Spectrum Noir TriBlend alcohol markers.  I die-cut the images using my Scan N Cut machine.

 

 

I adhered some Pink Flower Sprinkles on the mommy Kangaroo and layered the baby kangaroo inside the mommy’s pouch with liquid and foam adhesive.

 

 

 

 

The A2 size panel was die-cut using the Stitched Cloud Backdrop die and ink blended with Bubblegum, Soft Lilac and Butter Ink using some blending brushes and my Clouds stencil die.  I know you can hardly see the clouds because of the shaker elements but It’s important to me to have all those details in creating my card.  I also die-cut the frame using the Wood Grain Frame Die.

 

 

I adhered some acetate sheet and foam adhesive on the Wood Gran Frame Die and added the Yellow Star Sprinkles with Fairy Dust confetti mix for my shaker element.

 

 

I die-cut some black card stock using the Stitched Flag die and stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink.  I sprinkled white embossing powder and heat-set this with my heating tool.  I finished my design by adhering the kangaroo on the front panel.  Here’s my card:

 

 

I always LOVE making shaker cards and with the new sprinkles and sequin mixes available at the shop, it’s hard not to make them all the time.  They are super fun to make!  Here’s a closer look:

 

 

For my next card, I also used the Mandala Frame die and created a very simple, white-on white card.  The “wreath” was die-cut using a die from Hero Arts that I bought from Kat Scrappiness years ago.  I layered the flowers I colored earlier with liquid and foam adhesive.

 

 

To finish my design, I used my white gel pen to add some interest and texture on the flowers.  Here’s a closer look:

 

 

I hope you got inspired today.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below.  Have an amazing day and happy crafting!

I started out by stamping the images on some 110 lb card stock.  I used the stamp set from Altenew called Watercolor dots.  I embossed this piece using a hearts embossing folder that I purchased from Hobby Lobby.  I also die-cut two tags using the Stitched Scalloped Nesting dies.

I die-cut the word “love” from the new I Love You shadow dies on pink, and die-cut the shadow with some vellum.  I used my hearts embossing folder to emboss the white tag and adhered this piece on the black tag to layer it.  I adhered the “love” sentiment.  I stamped the sentiment on black card stock with versamark and heat-set this with my heating tool.

Kat Scrappiness January Release – Day 1

Hello my crafty friends.  I’m super excited to share my first post for January 2019 and it is the January release by Kat Scrappiness.   For Day 1, we are showcasing the Lacy Layered Heart dies and the Stitched Sentiment Strip dies.  They go perfectly well together or on their own.

For my first card, I inked up some Bristol smooth white card stock with my distress oxide inks and die-cut the piece with the outer layer of the die.  I also die-cut some Lawn Fawn glittered card stock using the lacy heart die.  I adhered this piece onto my colored heart with some Nuvo liquid glue.

On another piece of some heavy-duty card stock, I used the Fancy Floral Coverplate die with an embossing mat to dry-emboss the details on the card stock.  I think this turned out so beautifully.  I love the impression it makes on the card stock.

I adhered the heart on this embossed piece with some foam tape.  I also adhered this piece onto an A2 size card base.  Here’s what it looks like:

katscraplacyheart1a

I stamped my sentiment on some black card stock with versamark ink and heat and sprinkled some white embossing powder.  I used my Wagner heating tool to heat-emboss the sentiment, and cut this piece using the new Stitched Strip Sentiment dies.  I finished the design by adding some Sparkling clear jewels.  Here’s a closer look:

I love how this card turned out!  I know this is a simple card but that glitter heart in the middle compliments the colored background.  Here’s another look:

katscraplacyheart1c

For my second project, I used the Everyday Brush Strokes stamp set and stamped the image with Ballet Slippers and Pizza Crust inks by Lawn Fawn.  I used the Stitched Sentiment Strip die to die cut the middle piece.   I used foam adhesive to adhered my foreground on an A2 size card base.  I stamped the sentiment on the strips and adhered the pieces using Nuvo liquid glue.

To finish my design, I added the Silver Scissor Sequins mix.   Since this is going to a crafty friend, I know she will appreciate those cute little touches that I added on this card.  Here’s a closer look:
