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!
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 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!

For today’s card, I am showcasing the Lovely Blooms stamp set and its coordinating dies. I absolutely LOVE this set. You can use this for any occasion, especially for Mother’s Day (and let’s not forget our beloved Grandmas or beautiful daughters)! I love the script fonts that Jennifer had added to the set as well. This Lovely Blooms stamp set and coordinating dies will be available for purchase on Friday, April 14, at 8:00 a.m. CST.
I wanted to try out my new Distress Oxide Inks and so I started out by distressing my Neenah solar white card stock, combining the Worn Lipstick and Spiced Marmalade Oxide inks. I LOVE THIS COLOR COMBO! The inks were so creamy it was so easy to achieve the color that I wanted for my flowers! I also used the same technique for my leaves, combining Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide with the Pine Needs Distress Ink. I then stamped my images with Versamark ink and used my white embossing powder to heat set it.
I also wanted a little shaker element for my card and immediately thought about creating a mason jar shaker. I used my exact knife to cut out a little window, and adhered acetate to my card using my liquid glue. I adhered the little branches on my mason jar and used foam tape around the edges to create my shaker panel. For my shaker elements, I used seed beads from my stash.
I finished off the design of the card by dry-embossing my card panel, and adhering the flowers and mason jar with my Xyron Mega Tape runner and foam adhesives. I used a banner die to stamp my sentiment for the card. I also used my Spectrum Noir Glitter brush markers to add glitter to my flowers. I know you can’t really see the glitter on the photo but in real life, they are beautiful!
This card is for my Mother:

It’s that time of the year again and I am so excited to be participating in the “Spring Coffee Lover’s 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 during the duration of the hop only, so hurry and shop for all the crafty products you’ve all wanted to order from the shop (use coupon code: “SPRINGCOFFEE” for 15% off your order).
I started out by stamping my bear image (Gerda Steiner Warm Fuzzies stamp set) using my stamping tool with memento tuxedo black ink on Neenah Solar White card stock. I colored my image in with my Copic markers, then used my precision cut scissors to fuzzy-cut the image.
Using the largest of the Stitched Fancy Scalloped Rectangle dies, I die-cut my front panel with the Doodlebug Cream & Sugar 6 X 6 paper pad. I also created the half-circle window using a die from my stash.
To finish off my design, I die-cut the trees, stamped my sentiment on the banner, and adhered them all to the card. For my final touch, I used my new favorite, Crystal Nuvo Drops in Dandelion. Here is my card:

I am back today to share with you my design team projects for KatScrappiness, showcasing the Gerda Steiner Llama Tell You stamp set and its coordinating dies, with Stitched Fancy Scalloped Dies, Double-Stitched Rectangle dies and a bunch of other supplies available now at the shop.
I am going to keep this blog post short as I have a process video for you today. The supplies I have used are listed and linked below. I hope you got inspired! Have an amazing day!

Hello stampers and crafters! It’s Maria Russell here with you today and I am so thrilled to be back as a design team member for Kat Scrappiness.
Today I have created two projects, showcasing the (recently stocked) Stitched Heart Tag Dies, Stitched Rope Nested Rectangle Dies, Gerda Steiner Brush Bunny stamp set and a bunch of other products available at the shop.
If you haven’t watched the YouTube video tutorial on how I made these treat boxes, I have linked the video below. It is very easy and you can create a decent-size treat bag using these tag dies. They are so versatile you can create a ton of projects with these dies, for any occasion. Here is the video tutorial:
For the treat bag, I started out by die-cutting the tags twice and stamped my images on the tag. I highlighted the rainbow with my white gel pen. Before assembling the treat bag, I die-cut a grass border hills die. It is important to do this step first before assembling the bag.
I stamped my bunny images on Neenah solar white card stock and colored him in with my Copic markers. I adhered my bunny to the treat bag.
Using my favorite Lawn Fawn Tiny Tag Saying stamp set and Tiny Tag Dies, I stamped the sentiment on the tag, and attached it on the treat bag with my pink and white twine. Hear is the treat bag:
For the card, I started out by die-cutting my front panel using the largest of the stitched rope nested rectangle dies. I sponged the “clouds” using my lawn Fawn Clouds Border Dies, with Tim Holtz Broken China distress Ink.
I die-cut another grass border die and adhered it on my front panel. I stamped the eggs on Neenah Solar White card stock and colored them in with my Copic markers. I also used my Sakura Gel pens to add some details to the eggs.
To finish off my design, I adhered all of the stamped images and die-cuts on the front panel of my card. Using a blue card base, I adhered the front panel to my card base using my all-time favorite Xyron Mega Tape Runner. Here is the card:
Here are the two projects:
