Cute Little Backpack Cards | Spellbinders Small Die of the Month August 2019

Hey y’all, I hope you are doing well! Today I have some cute back to school cards created with the August 2019 Spellbinders Small Die of the Month Club. This die set was so much fun to use I could just make one card so I made three!

This kit comes with everything you need to make a tiny little backpack, a few sentiments, and some knick-knacks to put inside! Yup, that’s right, you can put things inside the backpack! I highly recommend you give the video above a watch to see exactly how there are put together.

1.jpg

For the first card I used Cotton Candy cardstock from Simon Says Stamp, Neenah white cardstock, rose gold paper, and Really Rainbow patterned paper in order to make the backpack.

10.jpg

The background paper for this card is from the Honey Bee Stamps Over the Rainbow paper pad. I glued that onto an A2 card base and then adhered the backpack onto that.

8.jpg

For the inside of the card I created crayons out of a bunch of different colors of Simon Says Stamp cardstock and a piece of paper out of some Really Rainbow Lawn Fawn patterned paper. The inside sentiment was cut with some of the dies that come in the die kit.

9.jpg

The sentiment on the outside of the backpack comes from the Simple Sentiments No. 1 stamp set. I stamped that with Gina K Designs Jet Black Amalgam ink onto a strip of Neenah white cardstock and then popped it up with foam tape. To finish up this card I went around the edge of the background paper with dashed lines using a white gel pen. I also went over the white parts of the backpack with a glitter brush.

For the next card I used Plum cardstock from Hero Arts, Buttercream cardstock from Fun Stampers Journey, rose gold paper, and Fly and Scrap patterned paper in order to make the backpack. The background patterned paper come from the Really Rainbow paper pack.

3.jpg

The sentiment on this card comes from the Tiny Words Birthday stamp set. I stamped it with black ink onto the Buttercream cardstock.

7.jpg

On this last card I used Gina K Designs In the Navy cardstock, Doodlebug patterned paper, black cardstock, and a holographic silver paper.

5.jpg

On the inside is a notebook made with Over the Rainbow patterned paper, black cardstock, and white cardstock, I also have some glasses made with black cardstock and three crayons made with Lipstick Red, Audrey Blue, and Orange Peel cardstock from Simon Says Stamp.

6.jpg

The sentiment on the outside of the card is the same as the sentiment on the first card. The sentiment on the inside of the backpack comes from the Tiny Words stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. To finish the card I went over the black parts on the backpack with a glitter brush.

These cards were so fun to create and would make awesome back to school cards for any age. I also think they could be used for things like graduation or leaving for college cards and you could stick some money in the pocket.

I found these little backpacks to be a wonderful way to show off some of my favorite patterned paper!

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.

8.jpg

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.

5.jpg

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.

7.jpg

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.

6.jpg

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!

1.jpg

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.

3.JPG

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.

2.jpg

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!

172.jpg

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.

8.jpg

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.

9.jpg

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.

10.jpg

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.

12.jpg

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.

13.jpg

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.

1.jpg

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.

3.jpg

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.

2.jpg

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.

4.jpg

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.
