Happy Saturday, everybody! How are you all doing? Do you have any fun plans for the summer? I have some exciting card making related projects coming up and I can’t wait to share the news with you in a couple of weeks. In today’s Saturday Stamp Day video I will be showing you how to create another slider card with the Slide on Over dies from Lawn Fawn.

A couple of days go I purchased a new camera that allows me to focus well on my card and make things in the background blurry. I am having so much fun with it! Since I got a new camera, I wanted to switch up my setup a little bit. Do you like the photo style of my cards? If not, let me know and I’ll try some other things or I’ll go back to my previous setup. I love to receive constructive feedback so I can make sure I offer YOU the best content.

ssd-ciao-fullI started out by coloring the dogs from the Friends for all Seasons: Summer stamp set from WPlus9. This is one of my new favorite stamp sets out there! That dog holding the basket filled with bones cracks me up. I created a slider card so that it looks like the dog on the right is giving the (hungry) dog another bone! Just like “trick or treat” on Halloween. After die cutting a rectangle and hill, I did some ink blending with Vanilla Frosted Cupcake ink from The Ton. This ink blends like butter!

Creating a slider card is so easy! It may look intimating at first, but I can reassure you that it is easy and fast to do. Simply die cut one of the slits first. Then, turn your paper around and create a foam border for your penny. Next, double up your foam adhesive. After you created your frame, line up your penny with the slit and adhere two layers of foam adhesive to the penny. Finally, adhere your image to the foam adhesive. And voila! Your slider is finished! Easy, right? 🙂

That’s it for now! Thank you so much for reading today’s blog post. I will be back on Monday with a brand new video series filled with inspiration and giveaways. See you then. Xo

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, 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

Happy Thursday, everybody! I am so glad to be finally sharing another video with you. It has been a long time since I made a card and a video so it felt good being in the craft room again. I’ve been busy for school. Exams are starting on Monday so I’ve been studying a lot. Anyway, today I am here with a new project for Ready, Set, Stamp with LLC. Yay! 🙂

This month, my two friends Laurel and Catherine and I are showcasing the following products by Ellen Hutson: Bokeh Dots stamp set, Wild Garden dies and Zipper Panel dies.

I started out by stamping a polkadot background using the Bokeh Dots stamp set along with a circle patterned stencil. I used the stencil as a guide which made the stamping easier and faster. Next, I die cut one of the flowers using the Wild Garden dies. Since this is a very intricate die, I used the Precision Base Plate by Sizzix. This works really well when using wafter thin dies! I die cut the flower once more using Bristol paper. I put a dryer sheet under the paper. That way all of the pieces will stay put in that dryer sheet. This makes it easier to color those petals.

I colored the petals from the flowers using ZIG Real Color Brush Markers (Light Pink and Lemon Yellow). Using only two colors, I achieved a lovely gradient. My favorite brush to use with these markers, is the Pentel Aquash Brush. If you don’t have this brush, a regular paint brush would work as well. 🙂 For this card, I used the inlaid die cutting technique. This is a fun and simple technique that creates a “how did they do that” effect.

celebrate_eh_llc_closeup

For the sentiment, I used the Zipper Panel dies from Ellen Hutson. I die cut the word die multiple times so I could create a thick and dimensional greeting. I adhered each layer using the Quickie Glue Pen. Even though this is nice adhesive, I ended up adhering the finished piece using Glossy Accents since this is a strong glue. Finally, I embellished my project with sequins and enamel dots. 🙂
