Pumpkin Spice in my Latte

Hello my crafty friends.  I am up for Kat Scrappiness today to share with you a simple coffee-themed shaker tag, showcasing products available at the shop.

I started out by stamping my images using the Pumpkin Spice Stamp Set and Dies by Lawn Fawn on Neenah solar white with my Memento Tuxedo black ink.  I colored the images in with my Copic markers and die-cut them with its coordinating.

I wanted to create a cute shaker tag to use some new sequins from the shop, the Teal Woodgrain Flat and 6mm Orange AB Hallow Circle mix so I die-cut a medium tag using my Kat Scrappiness Stitched Scalloped Nesting Dies with the Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Fall Collection Paper Pad.  I stamped my sentiment onto my tag, and assembled the shaker tag.

I hope you like my shaker tag.  I have also listed and linked the supplies I used below if you’re interested.  Please use my coupon code Maria10 for 10% off your order at the shop.  Have an amazing day!

There’s No Otter Like You

I finally had some down-time this week and was able to play with my Otterly Love You stamp set and dies by MFT Stamps.

I started out by stamping my images on Neenah solar white card stock using my Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink pad.   I colored the images in with my Copic markers. I wanted to achieve soft coloring on my Otters and I used my E40 and E41 markers, highlighting their cheeks with R00.

I die-cut my front window frame panel using a die from my stash, and die-cut the blue vellum paper to achieve the look of water.

I used my clouds border die to die-cut the clouds using Inkadinkado masking paper, with my broken china distress ink to achieve the look of clouds on the front panel.

I finished off the design by adding the light blue coral from another stamp set. I hope you like my card today and got inspired.  I have also listed and linked the supplies I have used.  Have a great weekend!

I have a birthday pop-up box for you today and a process video below for Meow You Doin’  card, showcasing the Meow You Doin’ stamp set and dies, 6×6 Perfectly Plaid Rainbow paper pad, and a lot of other Lawn Fawn products that I have from my stash.

I started out by stamping my images on Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in with my Copic markers. I die-cut the pop-up box using a light blue card stock. I also die-cut the square boxes using the dies with the rainbow paper pad, and used my grassy hills border dies to die-cut the grass for my scene.

Before I assembled the box, I stamped some clouds and the sun on a white square piece of card stock. I assembled the box and started decorating it with the rest of my die-cut pieces.

I stamped the script “happy” and die-cut the piece with its coordinating die. I used my Xyron sticker maker to adhere it to the front flap of my card.   I love using the sticker maker for this type of project because it really makes my life easier and the die-cut piece is perfectly adhered to the card.

Happy Easter Card and Easter Treat Bag

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.

IMG_4338

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:

Easter Interactive Cards with Xyron Plus More Spring Cards Inspiration

Hello stampers and crafters! I hope you’re having a great day so far. Thanks for joining me today. I am back to share with you some Easter cards that I have made ages ago. I forgot how I loved making interactive cards.  For the Easter cards you see below, I have made a ton of them back when I first started paper crafting. I didn’t have enough supplies then so it is really more fun for me to re-create them now. These cards can be easily mass-produced!  They are so simple!

I started out by die-cutting my white card stock and patterned papers using my oval dies.  I also die-cut a ¾ inch. colored card stock and adhered it to the center of the patterned paper. To create the “cracked” look on the “egg” and to be able to open and close the card, I used my Lawn Fawn stitched scallop edge die. By doing this process, it will ensure that your patterned paper are perfectly lined up together.

Using my Xyron Teresa Collins Mega Runner adhesive, I adhered the bottom decorative patterned paper to the card base. I then used my paper punch to punch a hole on the top panel, and inserted a decorative brad so I can open and close the card.

I stamped my little chick image on Neenah solar white card stock (twice) and colored him in with my Copic markers. I fuzzy cut the images with my precision-cut scissors and used my Xyron mega tape runner again to adhere the image inside the card.

To finish off the design, I stamped my sentiments on both cards, and covered the brad with some decorative flowers. Aren’t they adorable? They are so easy to make. Even little kids will love creating these interactive Easter cards.

Here are some other spring-related cards that I designed before and recreated for this blog post using my Xyron tape Runner and Sticker Maker. I hope I have given you some inspiration to create some cute Easter and spring cards. Happy crafting!

Valentine’s Day Card

Hello everyone! I’m back today to share with you a cute Valentine’s Card, showcasing products available at Kat Scrappiness, i.e. stamp sets by Lawn Fawn – Love Letters, Cheery Christmas and Mom & Me stamp sets, Stitched Fancy Scalloped Rectangle Dies, Inkadinkado masking paper and Gina Marie Designs ribbon bow dies. I apologize that I don’t have a process video today as I am currently traveling for a few days.

I wanted to create a very simple card with some masking technique.  I started out by die-cutting my watercolor card stock using the stitched fancy scalloped die. I stamped my two squirrels on Inkadinkado masking paper and fuzzy cut them with my precision scissors.

Using my stamping tool, I laid out my scene and stamped my squirrels twice with Versafine vintage sepia pigment ink.  I heat-set it with some clear embossing powder.  Using the mask I created, I covered the squirrels so I can stamp the wood stump on top of the squirrel. Removing the mask, I also set the tree stump with clear embossing powder.

I colored the images using my Zig clean color real brush markers.  I used my heating tool to dry them out a little, and covered the images with my mask.

I smudged some spun sugar and shaded lilac distress inks on a clear acrylic block, sprayed it with water, and used my flat watercolor brush to carefully start brushing the color onto the paper.  [Since the images are already covered with my masking paper, I was not afraid to do this technique.] I removed the mask and set it aside to dry.

I finished off the design by using a patterned paper by Crate Paper design, and die-cut a bow using a ribbon bow die by Gina Marie Designs.

Here is the final card:
