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:

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:

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:

I added some Nuvo glitter drops on the heart to give it some dimension and shine.  I also love how this card turned out.

It’s A Hot Chocolate Kind of Day – Fall/Winter Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop

Hello my fellow coffee-lovers!  This is my second post for the Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop.  I wanted to enter another card today showcasing some of my favorite stamp sets by Newton’s Nook Designs.

For my card below, I am featuring the Cup of Cocoa stamp set and its coordinating dies, the Sweater Weather stamp set and coordinating dies and the Sky borders die set.

Just like my first blog post, I stamped the images on Copic friendly ink and colored them  in with my Copic markers. I die-cut the images with the coordinating dies.  I inked up a piece os Bristol smooth white card stock with my Distress Oxide inks and used a circle trio die from my stash to cut the windows.

I adhered the colored background onto my card base with some foam adhesive.  I also die-cut another piece of white card stock using the sky borders die set.   I adhered the images with foam adhesive and some Nuvo liquid glue.

To finish my design, I die-cut the little bows and also stamped the sentiment.  Here’s a little close-up of my card:

I don’t know about you but this kitty cat certainly makes me want to put on some skinny jeans, UGG boots and comfy sweater and drink hot chocolate all day long!  Okay, maybe not all day because I now have low-tolerance on caffeine but maybe two cups will be my limit!  Haha!  Here’s another look:

For my project today, I am showcasing the new Crafter’s Essentials – Winter die set  with the Beary Merry stamp set by Neat & Tangled.

I started by stamping my image with Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink and colored the images in with my Copic markers.  I die cut the Trees and snowbanks with Neenah Solar white card stock with the Crafter’s Essentials – Winter die set.

Father’s Day Card with Dad’s Tools stamp set by Kat Scrappiness

Hello my crafty friends, Maria here with you today on the blog!  I hope you are all having a great week so far.  Father’s Day is fast approaching and it is time to honor all the AMAZING dads out there.  The new Dad’s tools – 6×8 Layered stamp set is perfect for this type of occasion, or you can even make just-because cards.  It doesn’t always just have to be for one day out of the year.  I know if my Dad were here, I probably would make him a card at least once a month.

I started out by stamping my images on Neenah solar white card stock, using my Tim Holtz Tonic Stamp Platform.  I think it is a must-have tool for stamping layered images.  Since this stamp set did not have matching dies, I used my Brother Scan N Cut2 to die-cut the images.

I used the biggest of my Cross Stitched Rectangle dieto die-cut the blue patterned paper taken from the Gotta Have Gingham Petite Paper Pack 6×6 by Lawn Fawn.  I then used the third piece of the Cross Stitched Rectangle dieto die-cut a piece of silver card stock. I placed this card stock onto my We R Memory Keepers embossing folder and run it through my die-cutting machine to emboss this piece.

I adhered my blue patterned paper onto my card base and then layered the embossed silver cardstock on top for my foreground.  On another piece of white card stock, I die-cut the word Dad with the Uppercase Condensed Alphabet Dies.  To give it some dimension, I used my foam adhesive to adhere the word Dad onto my card.

I stamped the sentiment on a black card stock with my Versa-mark ink and used my white embossing powder then set it using my heating tool.  I also adhered the hammer and screwdriver images from the stamp set.  I finished the design by adhering my blue enamel dots on the four corners of my silver card stock embossed piece.  Here’s the card.

I honestly struggle with masculine cards so designing this was a bit of a challenge for me.  However, I love how this turned out.  Here’s a close-up look:

I Put My Faith To You O’Lord

Hello my crafty friends! I hope you all had an amazing weekend!  I’m back today with a very special card. It is the start of the Holy Week and this is the perfect time to reflect.   Don’t get me wrong; this isn’t the only time to show our faith. I think everyday we open our eyes, we should start thanking the Lord for all the blessings that we have in our lives. I’ve always been religious in my own way. However, I am not going to go into all the details of what I do to show my faith.

Today’s card features a stamp set that is very new to me. I was searching for a stained glass stamp set because I have this design that I’ve had in my head for a card. I found the perfect stamp set through YouTube. This stamp set is called Layered Stained Glass by Maymay Made It.

I started out by stamping the image on Neenah solar white card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Then I stamped the layers using Ballet Slippers, Minty Fresh and Fresh Lavender inks by Lawn Fawn with my Tim Holtz stamp platform.

I used a die from my stash to create the mantelpiece and also used a leaf punch to cut the greenery. To finish my design, I used my “Faith” die from Simon Says Stamp and also stamped the sentiment “Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself”. Here’s the card:

I absolutely love this scripture!   Here’s a little close-up below!  Can you see the details on the mantelpiece?  I embossed it with my embossing folder to make it look like concrete.  I have visited a LOT of churches in Europe and it is spot on!

I wanted to add glossy accents to make it look like real glass so I’ll probably add it later on.  For now, here’s the card:

I hope you got inspired today.  I have listed and linked the supplies I used below.  Have a great holy week!

Love You to the Moon & Back Scrapbook Layout

Hello my crafty friends!  I am super excited to share my project today.  Mother’s Day is fast-approaching and I wanted to create a scrapbook page layout, showcasing the Large Alpha dies, the “Love You to the Moon & Back” script sentiment dies by Kat Scrappiness, plus other supplies available at the shop.

I started by inking my 12 x 12  white card stock with my ink blending tool and my Worn Lipstick and Fossilized Amber distress oxides.    I spritzed my background with water and dabbed it with my paper towel.  I love the look of distress backgrounds especially on white card stock.

IMG_7253

I matted my mom’s photograph on Gina K Designs Black Card Stock.  I also stamped my flowers and leaves using the Lawn Fawn Fab Flowers 4 x 6 stamp set.  I die-cut my images using the Lawn Fawn Fab Flowers dies.

IMG_7254

Using the Large Alphabet Dies, I die-cut the letters M-O-M on Gina K Designs Black Card Stock.   I adhered the die-cut pieces onto my layout using my Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive, lining it up with my T-square ruler to make sure that they are evenly spaced and perfectly aligned.

IMG_7255

I adhered my mom’s photograph onto my layout.  To finish my design, I added the rest of my embellishments.  Here is my layout:

KatScrapMomLayout

Here’s a little close-up!  Isn’t she beautiful?!  My mom is an amazing, strong, beautiful person, inside and out.  She has taught me how to become independent, and be able to do things that I couldn’t even believe it’s possible.  I am such a lucky person to have a mom like mine.  I love her to the moon and back!

Kat Scrappiness Dies with Lawn Fawn Sweet Friends

I hope you all had a great Valentine’s Day yesterday!  I have two cute cards for you today showcasing the (new) Large Alpha Dies, Distressed Edge Circle Dies, Distressed Edge Rectangle Dies, Fancy Scalloped Edge Dies by Kat Scrappiness, with Lawn Fawn’s Sweet Friends stamp set and Sweet Friends Lawn Cuts dies.

Even though these two cards have hearts, they are not for Valentine’s Day.  My friends and I love s’mores and I thought the Sweet Friends stamp set with the Large Alpha Dies and other dies by Kat Scrappiness would be perfect to use for my cards today.

I have a process video for you so I will keep this blog post short.  Here are my cards:

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:

Merry Wishes Gift Card Holder

Hello my crafty friends!  I hope you are all ready for Christmas!  I am still wrapping presents and prepping for the holidays and one of the things I made today is this special Gift Card Holder that will house a gift card for my daughter. She loves reading, and she loves Harry Potter so I thought it’s appropriate to use this stamp set that I purchased awhile back from The Sassy Club, as well as my favorite stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn.

I started out by stamping my images on Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in with my Copic markers. I used my Brother Scan N Cut 2 Machine to die-cut the images from The Sassy Club since this stamp set doesn’t have any coordinating dies. I also die-cut the other stamped images from Lawn Fawn with the Stitched Hillside Backdrop and the Stitched Mountain Border dies, as well as the embellishments that I wanted to add to the card to create my scene.

For the inside of the card, I used Fancy Scalloped Rectangle Stackables, Lift the Flap and Simple Gift Card Slot Dies by Lawn Fawn to house my gift card.

To finish my design, I added stickles to the snow, the lampposts, as well as the trail of stars on the card front. For the inside of the card, I used my Sharpie White Paint Pen to draw the arrow and wrote the word “lift”. Here’s my card:

Front of the card:

SassyHarryPotter1

Inside of the card:

SassyHarryPotter2

Close-up:

I really love how this card turned out. It took me an hour or two to create it but this card is really special and I know that my daughter will appreciate it very much. I hope you like my card today. I have listed and linked the supplies I used. Thanks for stopping by my blog today and have a Merry Christmas!
