Purple Pumpkin Card | Spellbinders Large Die of the Month October 2019

Hey crafty people! Today’s card features the October 2019 Large Die of the Month kit from Spellbinders.

I cut some of the leafy dies out of Fog and Summer Days cardstock. I then cut the pumpkin out of black cardstock and used colored pencils to give it some purple color. I also colored the stem brown.

3.jpg

I glued all of the leafy cuts onto some patterned paper and then popped up the pumpkin with foam tape. I then popped up the panel onto a dark brown card base. I placed the panel flush to the upper left corner, leaving some of the base showing on the bottom and right edges.

I picked out a sentiment from the Tiny Words stamp set and embossed it in white on brown cardstock. I cut it into a strip and popped it up next to the pumpkin.

For the final touches I used a brown Copic marker and added some dots around the leafy cuts. I then used Journey Glaze on the dots to give them some dimension and shine.

Thanks So Mush | Spellbinders Large Die of the Month September 2019

Hello crafty friends! Check out these cute little mushrooms from the Spellbinders Large Die of the Month club for this month. This die kit also comes with the dies to make gnomes and a squirrel, but I really wanted to use the mushrooms on this card!

2.jpg

When you have a card idea with lots of die cutting, I find it best to figure out all the cuts you will need and then get them all cut first. So that’s how I started. Once I had all of the pieces I assembled my mushrooms with some liquid adhesive.

For the background of my card I stamped the Sketchy Lines background stamp from Simon Says Stamp onto some white cardstock using Oatmeal Cookie ink from Fun Stampers Journey. Next I made an A2 size card base out of Dark Roast cardstock (also from FSJ) and adhered my stamped background onto that. I arranged all of my mushrooms on the card and once I figured out a placement I was happy with I popped them up with foam tape. I then glued the grass the to bases of the mushrooms with liquid glue.

For the sentiment I found some stamps in my collection which say “thanks so much” and carefully masked off the letter “c” in the word “much” with some tape. I then inked up the stamps and removed the tape so that the ink was not on that one letter. I stamped that onto some white cardstock with the Oatmeal Cookie so my sentiment read “thanks so m ch” and then I cleaned the stamps off really well. I then placed the sentiment into my Misti so that the letter “s” from the word “so” lined up where the missing “c” was. I masked off all the letters except the “s” and inked up the stamp. I then stamped the “s” so that my completed sentiment would read “thanks so mush” which goes perfectly with the theme of the card.

I cut my sentiment into a strip and glued it along the bottom edge of the the grass. For the finishing touched I added a few sequins and dot embellishments. I also went over the white spots on the mushroom tops with Journey Glaze.

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!

11.jpg

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.

4.jpg

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.

12.jpg

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.

2.jpg

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

Making Summer Cards With Basic Supplies | Jess and Laura's Hooray for 3K Video Hop

Hello my friends! Today’s cards are part of a fun video hop to celebrate a couple of fellow YouTubers hitting 3k subscribers on their channels! We are celebrating with some summer themed card and also a giveaway with lots of sponsors. Check out the video to find out more!

4.jpg

When I thought of summer I thought of watermelon. So I came up with this idea on how to create some watermelons using basic supplies. I pulled out a bunch of different colors of Simon Says Stamp cardstock and cut them with the nested oval dies from Hero Arts. The colors that I used were Green Leaf, Green Apple, White, Cotton Candy, and Lipstick Red.

1.jpg

After cutting the ovals, I cut each of them a second time so that I could in-lay each piece to make a watermelon. I used the larges oval die to cut a piece of scrap paper and then I used that as a base for the pieces. I glued them down with Gina K Designs Connect Glue. I cut the watermelon into two pieces so that I could make two cards. .

3.jpg

I picked out two pieces of cardstock for my backgrounds. For one I used Cotton Candy cardstock and for the other I used Sea Glass. I stamped a sentiment from the One Cool Pineapple stamp set on both of them with Versafine Onyx Black ink I popped up that background on A2 card bases with foam tape and I also popped up the watermelons on the cards.

2.jpg

I added black sequins to the melons to look like seeds. I took out some doodlebug tiny heart stickers and added some of them around each of the sentiments. To finish up the cards I added dashed lines around the border of the backgrounds with a white gel pen.

Dreamy Pastel Rainbow Card | Pink and Main

Hello crafty friends! Today I am sharing a sneak peek of some products from Pink and Main’s upcoming release. This release is coming out on May 20th and I adore it, probably because of all the rainbows!

3.jpg

For this card I first used the Rainbow Dies from the release to cut out my pastel rainbow. I cut the rainbow die from six different colors of cardstock to make the colors. I adhered all the pieces of the rainbow together on a paper template.

1.jpg

Next I stamped a sentiment from the new Bright Side stamp set onto a piece of Cotton Candy cardstock from Simon Says Stamp with Dusty Rose ink from Gina K. I then took clouds from that same stamp set and stamped them on that panel with Versamark ink to create a background. I filled in the clouds with a white colored pencil using a gentle pressure.

4.jpg

I glued the background panel to an A2 card base. Next I used a white gel pen and a T-square ruler to add a border along the edge. I popped up my rainbow shape with foam tape on the card. I then die cut 2 clouds from the Bright Side die set and popped them up on both ends of the rainbow.

2.jpg

For the finishing touches I first added some glitter to the two white clouds with Glossy Accents. I then went over the rainbow with a glitter brush. Finally I added some clear sequins across the card.
