Hey everyone! In today’s Saturday Stamp Day video I’m showing you how to create a cactus shaker card using the Stamp Your Own Cactus and Stamp Your Own Succulents stamp sets from Hero Arts.

These new stamp sets from Hero Arts make my heart happy! I started out by stamping a few of the images from the Stamp Your Own Cactus and Stamp Your Own Succulents stamp sets from Hero Arts on white card stock. After coloring them using Copic markers, I fussy cut them.

Next, I created a pretty frame using patterned paper from Dear Lizzy along with the Katharine die cuts from Winnie & Walter. It’s quite obvious that I like to create sequin shakers, right? 🙂 Well, I did it again. I created another sequin shaker. Today, I used a few colored Pretty Pink Posh sequins along with the new seed beads.

That’s it for today! 🙂 I’ll be back tomorrow with a new card and video. See you then! XO

Hey everyone! Today I am here with a card showcasing the Essentials: Katharine Cutaways (die cut!) set from Winnie & Walter. This card is part of their A Week To Die For event showcasing the newly released die cuts. For more inspiration and information, visit the Winnie & Walter blog.

I am in love with the Katharine die cut set from Winnie & Walter. It is described as an essential die cut set, and I can totally agree with that. There are many basic shapes includes in this set such as pierced rectangles (the one I used!), tags, circles, banners and more. I used the largest pierced rectangle today to die cut a front panel. After die cutting that panel, I stamped two balloons from the awesome stamp set called The Party.

Next, I thought it would be fun to adhere some white thread as the string of the balloons. Instead of simply adhering it, I adhered multiple 4mm sequins from Pretty Pink Posh on top of the white thread. I like how festive it looks! Afterwards, I die cut some glittery confetti using another new die cut set from Winnie & Walter called The Party Confetti. To finish off the card, I stamped a greeting using the Sugar Rush stamp set and added some more sparkle using a Clear Wink of Stella glitter pen. 🙂

That’s it for today! Be sure to stop by the Winnie & Walter blog for links to more projects using these amazing new dies. Xo

Hey everyone! In today’s Saturday Stamp Day video I am showing you how to make an easy elephant tuck card using the new Bubble Talk stamp and die cut set from WPlus9 along with Pretty Pink Posh sequins.

After watching Julie Ebersole’s video on how to create a card with a fold and tuck closure, I was hooked! I followed her guidelines on the measurements and places I needed to score this project. I started out with a piece of white card stock that measures 4.25″ inch x 11 inch. Next, I scored it at 3.5″ inch and 8 1/8″ inch. Then, using the pencil mark, I placed the elephant die from the Bubble Talk die cut set from WPlus9. After lining it up with the plate from my Big Shot, I die cut the elephant and stamped him using the coordinating stamp set.

I was so happy with the way the elephant turned out! Normally, I use pastel colors but today I decided to go for a more “spacey” theme. I adhered a piece of patterned paper from the Serendipity collection from Dear Lizzy and I stamped and embossed a speech bubble using the Bubble Talk stamp set from WPlus9 again. The lovely embossing powder I used is from WOW and I absolutely love that metallic look! Finally, I finished off the whole card using Pretty Pink Posh sequins and a strip of glitter paper.

Hey everyone! In today’s video I am showing you the products that I recently purchased at different shops such as Scrobby, Pretty Pink Posh, Studio Calico and more.

As I mentioned in the video, I would talk a bit more about some of the companies I ordered from. The companies did not ask me nor payed me to do this. I thought I would share my personal experience since I know that you like to find out about good and trustworthy companies. 🙂

SCROBBY

I previously ordered from Scrobby and I am still impressed by their great customer service. I canceled some products in this order and they smoothly arranged everything for me (they arranged this the same day I asked them!). It only took one day for my order to arrive. Super fast, right? They offer a large assortment of products that I like. If you can’t see a product you would like to purchase, you can shoot them an email and they will tell you if they can get the product for you or not.

I would highly recommend this shop to my fellow European crafters since they sell a bunch of American branded products, offer high quality service and reasonable shipping rates. 

CART’N SCRAP ART

Cart’n Scrap Art is a Belgian based company. They own a very small shop, but they do offer a big assortment. Products they sell include Distress Ink, Copic Markers, Lawn Fawn stamps and even Winnie & Walter stamps! 🙂 I visited their actual shop last summer and I loved being there. This time I ordered at their shop online and I had a really good experience. Their shipping is fast!

That’s some more information about these European based companies. Are you aware of other good European companies with reasonable shipping rates? Be sure to let me know in the comment box. 🙂

Thanks so much for stopping by! Xo
