Hey, friends and happy Saturday to all of you! I am so glad to be sharing another Saturday Stamp Day video with you. A couple of days ago, the adorable and brand new Magical Unicorns set from My Favorite Things arrived. When I first saw this set, lots of ideas popped into my mind. So today I am sharing a cute and colorful sequin shaker card made with these unicorns.

Isn’t that stamp set the cutest? I had so much fun making this project!

magical-fullFirst, I stamped and colored one of the unicorns from the Magical Unicorns set from My Favorite Things. Lots of images come with this set so there are endless possibilities! I also colored one of the rainbow and clouds image with my Copic markers. Next, I created the focal point of this card. I die cut the cloud from the End of the Rainbow once and I added a bit of blue shading with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to give it a little bit of an extra touch. Afterwards, I die cut that cloud once more to create a fun and whimsical sequin shaker with the Fuse tool from We R Memory Keepers.

ssd-closeupAfter filling up the sequin shaker with a fun mix of sequins, I heat embossed a sentiment with Long Island Teal embossing powder from WOW. This is one of my favorite embossing powders because of the gorgeous aqua color mixed with the gold glitter. It’s absolutely stunning! Since this unicorn and rainbow were so cute, I wanted to add some colorful patterned paper. I used the Everyday Collection paper pad from Avery Elle. Finally, I finished off my card with some sequins, a bit of Wink of Stella Glitter and a touch of Glossy Accents!

That’s it for now! 🙂 Thanks so much for stopping by. xo

Happy Saturday, everybody! I am so happy to be here again with a new Saturday Stamp Day video. Sometimes, when I don’t feel inspired to make a card, I say to myself: “What would (insert a crafter that inspires me) do?” This time I was wondering what my talented and dear crafty friend Julia would do. Whenever I think about Julia’s creations, I immediately think of her bright colored cards. She likes to use rainbow colors quite often, so that inspired me to do some rainbow coloring, too!

A while ago, I purchased some of the sets from the Winter 2016 Release by Essentials by Ellen. These fun and quirky stamps and dies are designed by the amazingly talented Julie Ebersole. In this video, I am featuring their All Inside and their Up the Happy set to create a bright and happy card!

ssd-eh-fullI stamped and masked off the butterfly stamp from the Up the Happy set multiple times. Then, I went ahead and used my Copic markers to give them a pop of color. My Copic coloring is far from perfect but in the video I share some tips that work best for me. As I mentioned in the video, I didn’t show all of the coloring. I included a guide/list of all the colors that I used for each butterfly. I hope you find that somehow helpful! 🙂

SSD-EH-closeupNext, I grabbed the All Inside die cut set and I die cut that adorable bear. After stamping the coordinating stamp, I colored the bear using some light gray Copic markers. Felt is so hot in the card making world right now! It’s becoming a big trend real fast so I decided to use some felt on this project. I had some leftover felt that I used to die cut a heart and I tucked it in the bear’s hands. This was easy since the die is made that way. So cute! Finally, I used some Wink of Stella, Glossy Accents and some sequins to finish off the card.

COPIC MARKERS

Here is a list of the Copic markers I used for each butterfly and for the letters of the sentiment (all of these markers are linked in the supply list below):

  • Red butterfly: R22, R24, R29

Happy Easter weekend, friends! My Easter Break has officially kicked off. Even though I have some work to do for college, I will take lots of breaks to relax and make cards. Today I am here with a new Saturday Stamp Day video featuring the Fairy Friends set from Lawn Fawn.

I created a sequin shaker and I did two fun die cutting techniques: partial die cutting and inlaid die cutting.

I started out by coloring the Fairy Friends set with Copic markers. I used a bunch of different colors to give this card a whimsical feeling. My coloring technique is really easy. Usually, I only reach out to two colors. Sometimes I tend to use three colors. However, I always use the lightest color first to saturate the paper. Then, I use the darkest color to add the shading. To blend that out, I either use the lightest color or the medium color. It’s easy! 🙂

After coloring and die cutting the fairies, I started by creating the main element for the card. First, I die cut the three flowers of the Fairy Friends set. Next, I used a circle die to do some partial die cutting. Partial die cutting is a cool technique I learned from Jennifer McGuire. Once I die cut all of the flowers, I used the mini MISTI tool from My Sweet Petunia to line up the stamps with the flower die cuts. I also colored these flowers with Copic markers.

It’s been a while since I made a sequin shaker so I grabbed the Fuse tool and created a quick shaker. I filled the shaker up with Walter’s Sparkly Shaker Mix. This is an exclusive shaker mix by Little Things from Lucy’s Cards for Winnie & Walter. I really liked the colors! For the sentiment, I wanted to highlight the word ‘fairy’ so I did some masking. The mini MISTI tool made it even easier since I had the sentiment already mounted on there. I used Long Island Teal embossing powder from WOW for the gorgeous aqua color. It has some gold shimmer in there which is simply beautiful. I finished off the card by adhering a couple of sequins here and there. 🙂

That’s it for now! Thank you so much for reading my post and for watching my video. I hope you’re having a great Easter weekend. xo

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
