Hello my crafty peeps! It is day 2 of the January release by Kat Scrappiness and the design team is showcasing the new “I Love You” shadow dies. We also have a giveaway every day during release week. We are picking one winner for each release day so a total of three winners! Please head on over the the Kat Scrappiness blog post to leave a comment. Here’s the link: http://katscrappinessblog.com/january-release-day-2-i-love-you-shadow-dies/
I started out by stamping the images on some 110 lb card stock. I used the stamp set from Altenew called Watercolor dots. I embossed this piece using a hearts embossing folder that I purchased from Hobby Lobby. I also die-cut two tags using the Stitched Scalloped Nesting dies.
I die-cut the word “love” from the new I Love You shadow dies on pink, and die-cut the shadow with some vellum. I used my hearts embossing folder to emboss the white tag and adhered this piece on the black tag to layer it. I adhered the “love” sentiment. I stamped the sentiment on black card stock with versamark and heat-set this with my heating tool.
To finish my design, I die-cut the bow from my stash and adhered the red heart from the heart sprinkles embellishment mix. Here’s a closer look:
I really love how this card turned out. Even though the background is busy, the design kind of worked, don’t you think?
I hope you like my project today. Don’t forget to check out the blog post on Kat Scrappiness to leave a comment. Tomorrow is the last day so head on over there! I hope you guys win. The supplies I used are listed and linked below. Have an amazing day!
Hello my crafty peeps! Maria here with you today and I’m back with a Christmas card, showcasing the Merry Critters stamp set. I LOVE this stamp set so much and I just couldn’t wait to play with it.
I started by stamping my images on Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in with my Copic markers. The little yellow bird reminds me so much of tweety! Here’s what the stamp set look like:
Since this stamp set didn’t come with coordinating dies, I die-cut the images using my Brother Scan N Cut 2.
I inked up my background with some distress oxide inks. I ahve been loving the Tumbled Glass and Spun Sugar color combination lately! It gives the perfect wintery-sky! Here’s my card:
I used some white glittered card stock as well to create my snow hill. I think this card turned out so cute. Here’s a little close-up:

Hello my crafty friends! I am back today with this cute Halloween Card, showcasing the Crafter’s Essentials – Fall Die Set, Stitched Scalloped Border Dies, some Purple Jewels and Distress Oxide inks.
I have a video tutorial for you today (link below) so I will keep this blog post short. Here’s my card:
I love the “evening sky” colors I blended using my distress oxide inks. I didn’t want to use the typical orange and black for Halloween. Here’s a little close-up:
Don’t you just LOVE the stitching details to the die-cuts? Also love the Purple Jewels. It just adds a little more oomph to the overall card design.

Hello my crafty friends! I hope you are all having a great week so far. Maria here with you today and I am back to share with you two card samples showcasing the new Crafter’s Gonna Craft stamp set, with the new Stitched Scalloped Collage Frame Die.
I have been super busy traveling for the last few weeks that I don’t have a step-by-step instruction for you. I guess if you are a card maker or a scrapbooker, you would have figured out how I made the cards already but I apologize if you are a beginner. Please know that once I am back on a regular schedule, I will have a step-by-step tutorial or even a YouTube video. I promise! Here’s my first simple, one-layer card:
This new stamp set is a must-have for any paper crafter! Here’s another look:
My second card just cracks me up! If you are a crafter, I am sure you can relate with the sentiment.
Isn’t it true though? I am such a hoarder. I collect anything and everything that I can use for a future project, it drives my husband nuts! I didn’t realize how much hoarding I’ve been doing until it was time to pack up most of my craft supplies to move it all back to my home in Florida.
I also LOVE the new sparkling jewels at the shop. They come in different colors but my favorite is the clear, sparkling one that I used on my project. I prefer adhering it flat-side up and I think it gives more shine.
I hope you like my projects today. Please don’t forget to check out the August release by Kat Scrappiness. The new dies are must-haves for sure!

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!
Hello my crafty peeps! I am super excited to share this post because today, we are launching a new die by Kat Scrappiness called Wood Grain Framed Diamond Wire Background Die. This die is designed by Kathleen herself and it is AMAZING! It gives a nice wood grain-embossed details on the die-cut. Here’s what it looks like:
I stamped my images on Neenah solar white card stock with my Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink and colored them in with my Copic markers. I fuzzy-cut the images using my precision cut scissors.
I used some older dies by Lawn Fawn to die-cut the grass hills and the picket fence.
I die-cut some silver foiled card stock using the new die. I also used another light tan card stock to die-cut the same piece so I can layer them together. For the second piece, I cut the wires using my scissors, and adhered this piece onto the silver foiled card stock. I adhered an acetate sheet to this piece, then added foam adhesive to create my little well for my shaker card.
I cut an A2 size card stock for my card base. I used the Sunburst Layering Stencils by Honeybee Stamps (also available at the shop) to color my card base. I used a clouds stencil die to add the clouds.
I added the Walking on Sunshine sequin mix inside the well and adhered my card base on top to create my shaker card. I adhered the chicken and the little chicks onto the foreground.
To finish my design, I die-cut some white card stock using the Stitched Flag Dies and stamped the sentiment. I added this piece to my card with a pink bow.
I love, love, love this new die! I love that it also embosses the die-cut. This die will also be great to create some layers, or do an inlaid technique. The possibilities are endless!
You guys should also check out the new sequin mixes at the shop. This Walking on Sunshine sequin mix is so cheerful and the colors are so vibrant! I chose this mix to make it look like corn kernels 🙂
Please check out the new products available now at www.katscrappiness.com. This new die is a must-have! I hope you like my shaker card and wishing you all a wonderful day! Happy crafting!
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:

Hello my crafty friends! I am back today for Kat Scrappiness sharing some coffee-themed cards, showcasing the new Got Coffee Script die, the Layered Coffee Cup die, Fancy Scalloped Stitched border dies, and a bunch of other supplies available at the shop.
I have a process video for you today for one of the cards that you see below so I will keep this blog post short. Here are the two cards that I made using the dies.
Here’s the second card:

Last week, I talked to a crafty friend and she told me that she was so sad because the card she gave to a co-worker was thrown out. She said that she has put so much work and effort on making the card and she was expecting the co-worker to appreciate it and at least keep it! I know how she feels! Which is why sometimes, you just need to work on clean and simple cards to give out to other people. I only really give my “special cards” to friends and family who I know will appreciate them a lot.
For todays card, I am showcasing the Punny Snacks stamp set, with Wonky Wavy Stitched Rectangle Dies and a bunch of other supplies available at the shop.
The Punny Snacks stamp set is perfect to create some clean and simple cards. Don’t get me wrong, I also used this stamp set to make some very elaborate (special) cards but these images are so cute and simple and you can even create just a one-layer card. It’s good to have a bunch of these cards in your stash for “just-because” kind of days.
I have a process video for you below. I hope this inspired you to create some clean and simple cards! I also listed and linked the supplies I used below. Have a wonderful day!

Here are the cards:
