Are you looking for a simple Valentine’s Day card without all the hearts and romantic stuff? Or just a simple “just-because” card to brighten someone’s day? For my project today, I am showcasing the Layered Chocolate Bar 6″ x 8″ stamp set, the Chocolate Lover’s Sentiment stamp set, Sparkling Manhattan sequin mix, Distressed Edge Rectangle dies and the Wonky Wavy Stitched Rectangle dies.
I started out by stamping the layered chocolate bar stamp using my Tim Holtz Tonic stamp platform with my memento tuxedo black ink. I used my precision-cut scissors to fuzzy-cut the images.
I also cut the little chocolate squares to add to my project.
It has been awhile since I made a shaker card so I thought I’d make them today. I die-cut my 110 lb. white card stock with the wonky wavy stitched dies. I die-cut the middle using the second of the largest piece of the distressed edge rectangle dies to create the window.
I cut a piece of acetate to cover the window and adhered the chocolate bar at the bottom left side corner. I added some 3M foam tape. I decided to use my Cinnamon Swirl Mix sequins for my shaker element and the chocolate squares but since the sequin mix I used is not available anymore at the store, you can also use the Sparkling Manhattan sequin mix. to finish the design, I stamped my sentiment using my Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink to give it a little bit of color.
Here’s the close-up of the card:
I love this stamp set because the chocolate image looks so realistic! There are so many possibilities using this stamp set.
I hope you all got inspired to create this simple “Just-Because” card, or a “non-romantic” Valentine’s Day card that you can give to a friend to brighten up their day! I have listed and linked the supplies I used below. Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful day!
Hello crafters! It’s Maria Russell here with you again today to share with you a cute Valentine’s card, showcasing the Stitched Fancy Scalloped Rectangle Dies, Stitched Rectangle Dies, Lawn Fawn Octopi My Heart stamp set and dies, and a LOT of products available now at Kat Scrappiness.
I wanted to record a process video earlier to show you how I made this shaker card but I am still recovering from laryngitis and it was so hard for me to talk and craft at the same time. I apologize if I don’t have a process video for you today.
I started out by die-cutting my shaker panel using the new Stitched Fancy Scalloped Rectangle Dies, with the Stitched Rectangle dies. I also used my acetate sheet to adhere to the panel to create the window for my shaker card. I stamped my images on Neenah solar white card stock and colored my Octopi with my Copic markers. I also stamped the coral images from an older Lawn Fawn Mermaid For You stamp set. I die-cut the images using the coordinating dies.
I wanted to color my card stock using the stitched wave border dies to create some waves, so I used the Inkadinkado Masking paper to cut out my mask. I used my distress inks to color the background. I splattered some water using my watercolor brush to create “bubbles”. Somehow it didn’t look like I had enough bubbles so I used my Copic White Opaque paint and splattered some white paint all over my background. This made it look more realistic!
I finished off the design of the card by using some beautiful sequin mixes from Kat Scrappiness for my shaker element. I used 6mm Metallic Grape, 6mm Sparkling Snow Sequin Mix, White Diamond Sequin Mix and some green seed beads I had from my stash.
Here is my card:
I hope you got inspired today. Thank you so much for stopping by. Have an amazing day!
Hello everyone! It’s Maria here with you today and I will be showcasing a lot of items from Kat Scrappiness. For my card, I have used the Avery Elle Holiday Spirits stamp set and Holiday Spirits Dies, with DCAM 8×8 Bricked Wall Stencil and Deck the Halls sequin Mix.
Here is the card:
The process video below will not show any Copic coloring because I wanted to keep the video as short as possible. You will, however, see how I stenciled the background and assembled the card.
I hope you found the video helpful and got inspired today. The supplies I have used are listed and linked below. Happy holidays!
