The time has finally come and Kat Scrappiness has just released the Everyday Brush Strokes stamp set! I was looking forward to showcase this set because it is just simply beautiful. You can create a lot of projects with this set. You can even use it to decorate your planner pages, traveler’s journals, scrapbook layout and project life. The possibilities are endless.
For my projects, I used the Everyday Brush Strokes stamp set, the Cross-stitched Rectangle dies by Kat Scrappiness and a bunch of other supplies available at the shop. I also listed and linked the supplies below.
I have a process video for you today at the end of this blog post. Here are photos of the cards I’ve made using this set.
Here’s the process video:
I hope you got inspired day! Have an amazing week!
Today is a super special day, we’re so glad you’re joining us! All of the Newton’s Nook Designs DT members have gotten together to throw a surprise birthday blog hop for Jennifer, the owner, illustrator and all around wonderful person behind Newton’s Nook! We are so honored to get to work with Jennifer, and we all just love her so much and wanted everyone to celebrate her birthday with you! Jennifer, we hope you have the happiest birthday ever!
For my simple card below, I am showcasing the Newton Loves Cake stamp set and coordinating dies with the Baked From Scratch stamp set. I love mixing and matching stamp sets to create my cards.
I started out by stamping my images onto Neenah solar white card stock and colored the images in with my Copic markers. I die-cut my storybook window die with another 110 lb. white card stock.
I used the Tumbling Hearts stencil to ink-up my card panel. I adhered my storybook window onto my card base, then used foam adhesives to adhere my colored images. I finished my design by adding glossy accents to the candles, the collar and the little hearts. Here’s my card:
Since I colored more than one image, I decided to make another card. Here’s my second one:

Hello everyone! I hope you’re all excited and getting ready for Christmas. In my case, I haven’t even put up the tree just yet. I was traveling for my daughter’s graduation and just came back yesterday. The children are finally home and we have started decorating the house today.
One of our family traditions over the holidays is to create a handmade ornament or Christmas décor. A few years ago, we made this cute “waterless” snow globe using a recycled candle jar and it turned out so cute, I wanted to create another one this year. Here’s what we made last year:
For this year’s snow globe, I bought a shatterproof water globe from the craft store. I started out by die-cutting my little houses on DCWV 80 lb. card stock with my Magnolia Doohickey house die. I assembled the house using my favorite Xyron mega runner adhesive. I also die-cut a circle to cover the bottom of the lid.
I adhered my little house on the lid, and added some embellishments to my scene. First I added the red bow to the house, and then adhered the pine tree and the reindeer on the lid. I also added the little light bulb.
To finish the design, I added some fake snow and iridescent confetti to the jar and closed the lid. You can add as many or as little snow as you’d like.
It is so much fun to keep shaking this waterless snow globe. Here’s a close-up look:
I hope you like my project today and got inspired to create your very own waterless snow globes. These are also great to give as gifts or start your family tradition by making your own ornaments/Christmas décor this year. Have a wonderful day!
I hope you are all having a great week so far. All week long, the Xyron Design Team will be sharing easy Fall/Thanksgiving projects on the Xyron Facebook group. For my projects today, I am making a bunch of treat bags to give to my guests for Thanksgiving. I also made some place card holders and decorated a bunch of LED candles to decorate my table.
If you don’t have the supplies to create the treat bag, you can definitely buy some bags from the dollar store or craft stores, and decorate them with silk fall leaves or any other fall-themed embellishments, and fill them with surprise treats for your guests.
I started out by die-cutting some American Crafts card stock using my Mama Elephant Treat Bag die. To decorate the bag, I die-cut the pumpkin with the Mama Elephant pumpkin add-on dies. For my sentiment, I die-cut the “Thank You” script using my Kat Scrappiness Thank you script die.
I assembled the bag using my Xyron Mega Runner. I also used the mega runner to adhere the pumpkin. To make things easier, I used my Xyron sticker maker to adhere the tiny pieces that goes with the pumpkin, as well as the Thank You Script sentiment. I filled my bag with some treats.
Here’s the treat bag:
Since I have some leftover leaves that I die-cut from a previous project, I decided to make some place card holders, that will hold the utensils and a note pad for my guests to write what they are thankful for this year. Here’s what it looks like:
I also decorated some LED candles to decorate my table, using my Xyron sticker maker and Mega Runner.

For today’s card, I am showcasing the new Simply Relative stamp set. Since the set only contains words, I used the images from yesterday’s stamp release called Lovely Blooms. This Simply Relative stamp set is so versatile you can use it all-year round. This stamp set will be available for purchase on Friday, April 14, at 8:00 a.m. CST.
I stamped the roses, leaves and mason jar images from the lovely blooms stamp set, with my memento tuxedo black ink. Using my Copic multi-liner, I drew the little branches inside the mason jar. I colored my images with my Copic markers. I then used my precision cut scissors to fuzzy-cut the image. I wanted edge-to-edge adhesive to this image so that it adheres well to my card front so I used my Creative Station Lite.
Here’s my card:

Hello crafters and stampers! I am super excited to share with you today this simple D.I.Y. Easter Banner to decorate your home. This is very easy to put together and you can create multiples to decorate your mantle or any room in your house.
I am back today to share with you some Halloween projects that I made using a bunch of dies and card-making supplies from KatScrappiness.Com.
October has always been my favorite time of the year to start my crafting for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. With the days getting shorter, I want to keep myself busy and create hand-made projects to give as gifts.
The first vellum LED tea light card with the skeleton was actually made a few days ago, as I wanted to display it on top of my mantle with the rest of my Halloween D.I.Y.’s.
The second card is my favorite. When I first saw this Cheery Lynn Designs Witch’s skirt die at KatScrappiness, I immediately thought of this design for a card. I thought it is pretty hilarious!
For the sake of time, I am going to keep this blog post short and show you the process video for the Witch’s Skirt/Cauldron Card and the cute Frankie Pillow Treat Box.
I hope you like the projects. Have an amazing day!
I am back today to share with you a card that I made as my third and final entry for the MFT Stamps 2016 Card Design Superstar. It has been a wonderful, scary and intimidating experience thus far. As I write this blog post, there are almost 400 entries! Scary, huh?
Today’s card is a simple thank you card for my best friend, who lives in Washington, D.C. I am a little sad that we are not going to be able to spend Thanksgiving together again this year. I made this card to let her know that she means so much to me, and I am grateful to have her in my life!
I started out by stamping the images on Neenah solar white card stock using MFT stamps Black Licorice hybrid ink. I used Copic markers to color the images. Since I didn’t have the coordinating dies, I had to fuzzy cut all of the images using my precision scissors.
For my card scene, I had to think outside the box again to create a larger window for my critters so I decided to use the gift box cover up die. I think it turned out perfectly.
