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.

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:

Lawn Fawn Thanksgiving Card

Hello stampers and crafters. I am back today with a design team project for http://www.katscrappiness.com  to show you a cute Thanksgiving card showcasing the Lawn Fawn Thankful Mice stamp set and dies, with KatScrappiness Stitched Rope Nested Rectangle Stax, with a bunch of other Lawn Fawn stamps and dies.

I started out by stamping the images on Neenah solar white card stock with my memento tuxedo black ink. I then colored my images using my Copic markers. After coloring the images, I proceeded to die-cut the images using the coordinating dies. A step-by-step process video is provided below and the supplies I have used have also been listed and linked.

I hope you like my project today and got inspired to create your own Thanksgiving cards for friends and family. Happy crafting!

 

I love Mermaids!

The new mermaid stamp sets from The Greeting Farm just captured my heart! The images are so adorable, I just had to order them all.  Here are the two cards that I designed yesterday using Maisea and Trishell stamps, with dies from Diemond Dies.  This is also my last post as a guest designer for Diemond Dies.

 

Here are the photos, and I am also sharing a process video on how I made the card.
