I was requested to donate some cards at the local Children’s Hospital where I live. I was supposed to make it very simple, kid-friendly with no sequins or glitter. Since Valentine’s Day is fast-approaching, I decided to use the new Love Bites stamp set by Newton’s Nook Designs.
The Love Bites stamp set is so versatile, you can create so many different projects using this set. It doesn’t have to be Valentine’s-related. You can also use it to make cute little notes to your kids to add to their lunchboxes, or just leave them notes to brighten their day.
I have a video tutorial for you creating 3 projects so I will keep this blog post short. Here are my projects:

I am so excited to share with you today’s post! It is that time of the year again. Falling leaves, sweater weather (at least for some of you), pumpkin spice, and the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Amy Tsuruta and the rest of her team responsible for facilitating this great hop! I don’t know how you guys do it but you all rock!
Today I made a card showcasing products from the #KatScrappiness shop (www.katscrappiness.com). THERE IS A SPECIAL COUPON CODE at the shop from September 15th to September 22nd only, so hurry and shop for all the crafty products you’ve always wanted (use coupon code: “COFFEEHOP” for 15% off your order). THERE IS ALSO A GIVEAWAY! Kat is a super sponsor and is giving away a $25 gift card from her shop. Please check all of the details for the giveaway on the www.coffeelovingcardmakers.com.
Here’s my card today and I also have a process video for you if you’d like to see how I made the card. I didn’t have the dies for this stamp set so I will also show you how I cut the image, using my Brother Scan N Cut 2. I love this machine and even though it is quite the investment, it will save you money because you don’t really have to buy coordinating dies anymore. [The part where I was showing you how I used the ScanNCut on the video was a bit shaky so I apologize for that. It was hard to film and do the cutting at the same time. I will be better next time] .
And here’s my process video. I hope you like my card. The supplies I used are listed and linked below. Have a wonderful day!

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!
