Happy Saturday, everyone! I am thrilled to be back with a brand new Saturday Stamp Day card and video. Lately I have been very busy with college. I have been preparing for an internship at kindergarten. It’s starting on Monday so I am looking forward to it. 🙂

In today’s Saturday Stamp Day video, I am featuring the adorable Chirpy Chirp Chirp set from Lawn Fawn along with their gorgeous Flower Border die and the brand new Mini MISTI from My Sweet Petunia.

I started out by die cutting a rectangle using the Large Stitched Rectangles die cut set from Lawn Fawn.  Then, I grabbed the brand new Flower Border die to die cut it out of the white paper. I die cut that border multiple times using some colored card stock. Since this is an intricate die, I used the Sizzix Precision Base Plate for extra support. If you don’t have this tool, then try adding a couple of sheets of card stock under your cutting pads. However, the Precision Base Plate is a good investment for your craft room. 🙂

After die cutting all of the borders, it was time for the fun part! The inlaid die cutting technique is one of my favorites out there so I really wanted to use it for today’s project. I adhered the white negative piece of the flower die cut onto a white rectangle using a bunch of adhesive. Then, I cut the flowers and the stalks to create my little pieces. After popping those in, my flower border was ready! I think it turned out pretty cute even though I say so myself! 😉

The Chirpy Chirp Chirp set is so cute, don’t you think? 🙂 It comes with adorable images and some matching sentiments. I pieced together a sentiment using the Mini MISTI tool from My Sweet Petunia (more information at the bottom of this post). After stamping the greeting, I stamped some of the images and colored them with Copic Markers. I die cut those with the matching dies. Finally, I assembled my project by adhering a piece of patterned paper from Avery Elle and by adhering the chick piece with dimensional adhesive.

MINI MISTI TOOL

A while ago, My Sweet Petunia announced the Mini MISTI Tool. As soon as I got the Mini MISTI in the mail, I was in love! I am a big fan of the original MISTI tool but the Mini MISTI is just really handy for making cards since it’s measures 6×7 inches. The stamp area measures 6 x 4.75. In the video, I mentioned that I am using the prototype. The hinges of the prototype are different than the actual MISTI tools that you’ll be ordering. 🙂 I like using the Mini MISTI tool for stamping sentiments like the ones I used for today’s card. IF I really have to choose between the original MISTI and the mini one, I would probably go for the Mini MISTI sine it’s smaller and cheaper. Since I only make cards, I don’t need a larger one so the Mini MISTI is the perfect size to me. 🙂

That’s it for now! Thanks so much for taking the time to watch my video! I appreciate it. Big hugs to all of you! xo

Hello everyone! I am so happy to be sharing another card and video with you. Today’s post is part of the Ready, Set, Stamp with LLC video series. First I want to thank you for leaving such sweet and encouraging comments. I wish I could give every single one of you a big thank you hug! Christmas is coming soon but like many of you, I haven’t sent out all my holiday cards yet. Yikes! Thankfully, today’s card design is a great design for mass producing!

We’re using the Doily Circle die and the A Homemade Christmas stamp set from Waffle Flower. I can’t wait to see Laurel’s and Catherine’s videos using these products. 🙂

This card came together quickly! I know I say that most of the time, but it’s the truth. Ha! 🙂 I started out by die cutting the Doily Circle die from Waffle Flower once. Not twice or thrice, just once! Since this is a fairly large die cut it was easy to cover a whole card using one single doily. Obviously I had to cut it up, but that’s okay. I adhered the doily pieces on the card using Glossy Accents. However, any liquid glue you have one hand will work just fine, too!

wf_llcI worked on a Shallows notecard for this project. Unfortunately, Hero Arts discontinued their beautiful layering papers including the colors I used. 🙁 It makes me sad because I really adore that color of card stock. It matches almost every single color out there! I will be looking for an alternative and if I find something I like, I will share it with you all!

ugvjhbnAfter adhering the doilies, I heat embossed a sentiment from the Homemade Christmas set from Waffle Flower. I used Long Island Teal embossing powder from WOW. This is the most fabulous embossing powder I have ever seen. It’s the perfect teal color mixed with hints of gold glitter. Yum! I embellished my card with gems, sequins and puffy snowflakes. I created those glittery snowflakes using a stencil from Create A Smile and white embossing paste from Wendy Vecchi.

Happy Saturday and welcome to the Crafty Be’s blog hop. I teamed up with fellow Belgian card makers to bring you a fun blog hop filled with inspiration and giveaways. Be sure to keep on reading until the very end of this post to catch the details about the giveaways. 🙂

In my video, I am creating two cards with the same supplies and design. However, I switched up the colors for both projects! This card could be easily mass produced since creating sequin shakers with the FUSE is quick and easy!

I started out by die cutting two white bases using the Noelle Cutaways from Winnie & Walter. I simply love that die cut set! It’s a really versatile die cut set that comes with many shapes. These shapes are perfect for holiday cards but of course you could use them all year round! 🙂

Not too long ago, a fellow Belgian crafter launched her own stamp company. She designs stamp sets that come with Dutch greetings (perfect for me to send out to family!) and adorable images. The stamps are made in the UK and they’re great quality. If you don’t speak Dutch, you could still use the sets for the cute images! If you do speak Dutch, I highly recommend checking out Els’ shop because her stamps are DA BOMB! 😉 I used the Welkom Baby stamp set along with the Warme Wensen set.

By the way, the greeting: “Warme wensen” means “Warm wishes” in Dutch. I heat embossed the greeting using some pretty embossing powders from WOW. For the pool colored card, I used Long Island Teal embossing powder. Oh my! This color is heavenly! It’s the perfect aqua color with just the perfect amount of gold glitter! For the purple sentiment, I used Mulberry Mist embossing powder.

I colored the penguin using the ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers. These markers work great and they make blending so easy! I created sequin shakers for both designs using the FUSE tool. I simply love the FUSE tool and I can’t tell you enough how easy this tool is for creating shakers. I filled up both shakers with some gorgeous sequins from The Ton.
