I heat embossed with clear Embossing Powder the floral swag after stamping it with Clear Embossing Ink. I trimmed down the panels to 4 in. X 51/4 in. and used a pink card base and a yellow card base from my stash.
I used Distress Oxides and blended them over the card panels. Then sprayed them with some water and blotted them off.
I used the rolling pin die from LaLa Land Crafts and die cut it from some full stick post it notes. Here’s my tip! I used a stack of 5 post it notes so that I didn’t have to die cut a bunch of the rolling pins – I just kept the post it notes held together and die cut the rolling pin 4 times from the stack of post it notes. This gives me 20 die cut masks from just 4 passes through my Big Shot! Yay for saving time! I easily peeled the layers apart and pressed them onto a sheet of Bristol smooth cardstock. Then I blended on some Distress Inks – Spun Sugar at the top, then Picked Raspberry, and Ripe Persimmon at the bottom. I kept the masks in place and flicked on some water. When I removed the masks I was over the moon with how pretty this background is! I used the Baking Marci stamp set and stamped the sentiment three times onto black cardstock, added some shimmer to the sentiments strips, and popped them up with foam tape.
I used the silver hearts from Pink & Main and scattered them across my background to complete my card! I hope you’ll watch my video below!
Hi, there! I created a card using a past kit from Scrapping for Less today! I love the May 2018 kit so much that I went and bought it! It’s called Countryside and there’s still some left (and they’re on sale!). This kit has multiple stamp sets that are exclusive to this SFL kit and you can’t get them anywhere else! How awesome is that! I used products from collection 1 including an exclusive stamp set from Brutus Monroe! And there’s a video at the end of this post so make sure you scroll all the way down!
The exclusive Brutus Monroe stamp set has 4 different images that look like what you’d see on an old time farm sign! I love white heat embossing on red paper, so I did that for my background for this card. But I think these stamps would look SO cool stamped on kraft with a brown embossing powder with distressed edges! Just like an old time farm sign! Anyway…. I decided to use the white embossing on red paper from the kit. I used my MISTI so that I could stamp all 4 images at once with Versamark ink.
Once my background was stamped and embossed I grabbed a piece of patterned paper and trimmed off one of the scenes and used tape runner adhesive to glue it down to the bottom third of my background. I love the empherma piece that says “farm house, sweet farm house” and I wanted to use that as my accent piece. I’ll be sending this to card to my mom. My parents raise chickens for their eggs and any time my friends go up to their house they call it a farm and my mom gets a kick out of it! I know she’ll love that sentiment!
I thought that the sentiment piece blended in with the scene on the strip of patterned paper. No problem at all! Here’s the trick I always do – I glued the accent piece onto a piece of white cardstock and trimmed around it with my scissors leaving a small white border – just like you would when you fussy cut stamps! Now the piece stands out! You can watch the process for this card below!
Hi! It’s Lynnea Hollendonner and I’m loving the Animals in the Arctic December 2018 Flavor of the Month card kit from Scrapping for Less! Even though this kit is sold out I wanted to share a few card ideas for those of you who were able to purchase the kit! Winter is my favorite and I just love the purples and blues found throughout the collections! But what I really love are snowflakes! The little snowflake die in the kit is perfect for more than just die cutting! Watch my video at the end of this post to see how I use it as a stamp to build my backgrounds!
Can you believe that both of these backgrounds were created by stamping with a die cut? It’s one of my favorite ways to stretch my dies! And it’s so easy to do! I used the small snowflake die from the third collection and die cut it from some sticky backed fun foam. It’s not necessary for it to be sticky backed, but it makes it so much easier. In my video I used green fun foam, but that’s only because I have a multi pack of foam and green happened to be the color that was on my desk. You can use any color that you have! If it’s sticky backed fun foam you just stick it onto an acrylic block and you’re good to go. If it’s just regular fun foam you’re die cutting add a thin strip of removable adhesive to an acrylic block and stick the fun foam to it.
Once you’ve mounted the die cut fun foam to your acrylic block you can stamp like you would any other stamp! How awesome! For my cards I used Versamark ink as well as a gold pigment ink, but this technique works with dye inks as well!
I started with a piece of dark purple cardstock included in the kit and stamped my sentiment from the LDRS stamp set from the fourth collection and heat embossed it with white powder. Then I used my die cut snowflake stamp with some Versamark ink to cover up my background. I embossed the snowflakes with pearl embossing powder. It looks so shimmery and wintery! I love how the pearl embossing picks up the background color along with a silvery shine! I cut up the snowflake garland so that I could use the snowflakes individually and used liquid adhesive to glue them and some sequins around my card.
While I had the die cut snowflake adhered to my acrylic block I decided to make another quick and easy card! I used a gold pigment ink and stamped my snowflakes so that it would look like there was a flurry of snowflakes coming down from the top of the card. I used the same ink to stamp my sentiment and BOOM! I have two quick and simple cards! And I stretched my supplies! You can watch my process in the video below!
Hello! Crystal here with a couple of cute Fall cards using the Sweater Weather stamp set by Newton’s Nook. Now this adorable set is geared a bit more towards a Christmas theme with the snowflakes and the mittens included in the set. I had a different idea for this set since the temperatures are starting to drop and it’s finally time to pull out some sweaters, I really wanted to make a Fall themed card using this set so let’s have a look at what I came up with…
I started by blending some Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain distress ink over the Newton’s Nook Tree Rings stencil on two pieces of kraft card stock measuring 4 x 5-1/4″. I adhered a strip of coordinating card stock on the left edge and then adhered a 1-1/2″ strip of Echo Park Celebrate Autumn patterned paper on both pieces of stenciled kraft card stock. I then mat these pieces with a dark brown card stock measuring 4-1/8 x 5-3/8″ and adhered them to kraft card bases. I stamped the sentiment on a piece of coordinating card stock using Versamark watermark ink and heat embossed a fine white embossing powder. I then die cut it with a banner die that I trimmed on one end. I adhered these banners to the card and set them aside.
Since I wanted a Fall theme for my card, I decided to use the coffee cup and pumpkins from the Newton’s Nook Fall-ing For You stamp set that was included in the September 2017 Flavor of the Month card kit. I stamped all the images in Memento tuxedo black ink and them colored them in with the following Copic markers:
All that was left to do was fussy cutting the images out and adhering them to the cards using a liquid glue. I sure hope you enjoyed the cards I’m sharing with you today. I had so much fun making them!
Thank you friends for checking out my blog post!
See ya next time.
