Just A Little Hello

Howdy Kat Scrappiness fans!  Maria here on the blog today with a simple card, showcasing the Crafter’s Essentials 1 die set.  If you are waiting for this die-set, you are in luck because they are arriving back in stock next week!  If you haven’t ordered this yet, you can now reserve it so that you don’t have to wait again.

To make things easier for me, I started out by choosing a sketch pattern from the Kat Scrappiness site (you can see this photo on the product sample).  I downloaded this sketch and inserted this piece in the envelope with the dies so I can use them for my future projects.  Sometimes, it is helpful to have it when you’re not feeling crafty!  I am having one of those days since the majority of my supplies are currently loaded in a shipping container, en-route to our home in FL.

I die-cut some A2 size card stock with the rounded-edge rectangle die.  I used the same die to die-cut a patterned paper.

I used the long strip die that is included in the set to die-cut another piece of some white card stock (slightly a different color from my card base).  I also used the stars die to die-cut  one pin pink, blue and yellow.

I stamped my images on some Neenah solar white card stock and colored it in with my Copic markers.  I die-cut the image with the coordinating die.  To finish my design, I stamped the sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black ink and used my belli-roll pen to add more details to the images.  Here’s my card:

I love the simplicity of this card.  I didn’t do a lot as you can tell, but it turned out really cute!  This sketch is also perfect to create a “Welcome Baby” card.  Here’s another look:

This Crafter’s Essentials 1 die setis definitely a must-have for any paper crafter.  I think the little stitched star die is just the right size to add to your projects.  I love the stitching details to it as well.

I hope you like my card today.  Please don’t forget to use my coupon code “MARIA10” for 10% off your order at the shop.  Don’t forget to check the clearance section too!  I wish you all a wonderful day!  Happy crafting!

Crafter’s Essentials 1 Die Set by Kat Scrappiness

Hello my crafty friends! I hope you are all having a great week so far! Maria here with you today sharing some cards, showcasing the new Crafter’s Essentials 1 die set and a lot of products available at the shop.  This Crafter’s Essentials 1die-set is a must-have!  This set contains 12 steel-rule dies that you can use for all of your paper crafting projects!  Here’s what it looks like:

For my first card today, I stamped some images on some white card stock with my Lawn Fawn Jet black ink using my Tim Holtz Stamping Platform tool.  I colored the images in with my Copic markers and die-cut them using the coordinating dies.

I also die-cut another piece of white card stock using the storybook die from the set.  I wanted to create a birthday card.  I stamped the small images on the card stock and assembled my card.

I really love how this card turned out.  There are so many possibilities using this Crafter’s Essentials 1 die-set.  I also love all of the stitching details! Here another look:


For my second card below I wanted to use some new sequin and confetti mixes from the Shop and some Nuvo crystal drops.  I also used the new My Tribe stamp set by Honey Bee Stamps.   Here’s my shaker card:

This shaker card is actually going to a friend of mine who is also crazy about crafting!  I am so thankful that she is a part of my tribe!

I hope you got inspired today.  The Crafter’s Essentials 1die set is sold out at the moment but more are coming in the next 7 days or so.  You can RESERVE the dies so you don’t miss out again.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below.  Have an amazing day and happy crafting!
