Embossing on Patterned Paper | SSS July 2019 Card Kit

Hey friends! Have you seen the Simon Says Stamp July card kit? I am in love. I especially love that gorgeous patterned paper from Honey Bee Stamps! Today I wanted to share with y’all what I made using this kit.


I started by stamping the honeycomb shapes from the stamp set onto one of the piece of patterned paper with Versamark ink. I embossed that with rose gold embossing powder from Simon Says Stamp. I then took that same embossing powder and embossed the heart shaped bee trail from the set onto some vellum.


For my sentiment I decided to emboss a stamp one Gina K Designs In The Navy cardstock with Alabaster white embossing powder. I cut the sentiment into a strip and I fussy cut out my vellum heart. I popped up the sentiment onto the heart with foam tape and then glued the whole thing to my background.


I mounted the background panel onto a piece of vellum and then popped up that entire thing onto an A2 size card base. To add some interest to the card I used Glossy Accents and added some dots to some of the honeycomb spots in the background. I sprinkled Unicorn Dust glitter over the card and it stuck to anywhere where I had that Glossy Accents.


For the finishing touches I first went over the sentiment with Wink of Stella glitter. I then added a heart sticker to the sentiment and some Moonshine sequins to the background.

You're So Very Kind | Reverse Confetti

Hello crafty friends! I have another card to show you today using some of the products in Reverse Confetti’s most recent release!


First I stamped the adorable critter from the Heart Pals stamp set and colored it in using Copic markers. I cut him out using the coordinating die set.


I picked out a piece of patterned paper from the From Cupid paper pad and cut it down to 4.25 x 5.5. I adhered that panel to an A2 card base. I then cut a panel of white cardstock to be slightly smaller than the A2 base. I cut a square window out of the top half of the white panel and then popped it up on the card base with foam tape.


For the sentiment I picked out a stamp from the Patterned Hearts stamp set and embossed it with white embossing powder on black cardstock. I then popped up the sentiment strip onto the card with foam tape. I also popped up the little cat image in the window on the card.


To finish up the card I went over the sentiment with Wink of Stella glitter. I also added some highlights to my colored in image with a white gel pen. Finally I added a few sequins using liquid glue.

January Countdown to Confetti Day Two | Reverse Confetti

Hey crafty friends! It’s day two of the Reverse Confetti Countdown to Confetti!

Today’s sneak peek products:

Big Bear
Heart Pals

I will also be featuring the Diagonal Stitches background die and the From Cupid patterned paper from the release!


For the first card I stamped one of the bears and a heart from the Big Bear stamp set and colored them with Copic markers. When you die cut the bear with the coordinating die it cuts the arms so that you can have him hold something so I have him holding the heart.


I stamped a sentiment from the set onto a white panel of cardstock. I cut a circle out of that panel and added some acetate so I could make a shaker. For the background of my shaker I used some of the fun patterned paper from the release.


For the shaker bits I used red sequins. I added some details to my bear with white gel pen and glued him the the shaker.


For my next card I used the Heat Pals stamp set as well as the Diagonal Stitches background die. I stamped the little bunny and bear stamp and colored it in with colored pencils. I used the coordinating die to cut them out.

For my background I used a striped piece of patterned paper from the release. I then added a smaller panel on top of that which I die cut with the Diagonal Stitched die. Next I popped up a smaller panel of plain white cardstock onto the card.


I popped up my little critters onto the small white panel with some foam tape. I used a gray colored pencil to add a drop shadow underneath them. I stamped the sentiment onto some red cardstock and embossed it with white embossing powder. I glued that underneath the critters.


For the finishing touches on this card I stamped the trio of small hearts stamp above the animals with light gray ink. I used a white gel pen to add some highlights to the two critters. I then added a few different sized of sequins across the card with some liquid glue.

Simple Card Design with Patterned Paper

Today I have a really quick and simple card design using some beautiful patterned paper from Lawn Fawn.


I picked out a piece of paper from the Really Rainbow Christmas paper pad from Lawn Fawn and adhered it to an A2 size card base.


Next I used two dies from the Brutus Monroe Stitched Tags die set. I cut the larger of the two tags from Gina K Wild Wisteria cardstock, and the smaller from Neenah Solar White cardstock. I stamped a sentiment onto the smaller tag with Gina K Amalgam ink. I used a stamp from the Brutus Monroe stamp set Merry and Bright.


I used some silver and white twine to tie my two tags together. The die cuts a little hole at the top of the tag so I just lined those up and thread my twine through. Once I had a nice looking bow I popped the tags up onto my card with foam tape. I didn’t glue down the smaller tag so it can move around.


To finish up that card I added some crystal clear sequins to the bottom of the larger tag. I also went over the sentiment with Wink of Stella glitter.
