Warm And Fuzzy Winter Wishes Card

Hi Everyone,
Today I am sharing one of my favorite stamp sets for Winter/Holiday cards. Warm & Feathered Hugs Stamp set from My Favorite Things. I wanted a card mostly in white with a hint of color. Below you will find the steps to create your own Winter Holiday Card.



Step 1 - Trim White Cardstock to 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", score at 4 1/4" and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (A2)

Step 2 - Diecut Cloud Borders using White Cardstock. Adhere first layer using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive and second layer using Foam Tape.

Step 3 - Diecut Stitched Hills using White Cardstock. Adhere first layer using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive. Stamp Warm & Feathered Hugs sentiment using ink of your choice. Adhere the diecut to the card using Foam Tape.

Step 4 - Stamp Warm & Feathered Hugs image using Gina K Amalgam Ink. Colour in the image with medium of your choice. I used Spectrum Noir Illustrators. I coloured in the owl using a feathering technique. These markers are perfect for this technique because of the brush. Stamp the Warm & Feathered Hugs trees using a light grey ink and diecut with matching dies. Adhere to card using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive for 2 and Foam Tape for the last one.

Step 5 - For added interest and sparkle apply Sequins on top of the trees using a Crystal Katana and Collage Medium.







This card makes me feel like the first snowfall when everything is white before people and cars make it all dirty. Below is a link to all the products used. To order the Illustrators go to Crafter's Companion here. All orders over $75 receives free shipping. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day.

Step 3 - Diecut Crafters Essentials Winter Backdrop to the panel created in Step 2. Adhere to card front using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.

Step 4 - Diecut Layered Coffee Cup using coloured cardstock or ink sections in colours of your choice. Assemble the coffee then stamp a holiday sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink under the cap. For added interest I attached bakers twine. Adhere to the card front using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.

Step 5 - Diecut Holly & Berries using coloured cardstock or ink sections in colours of your choice. Assemble the Holly & Berries and adhere to card using Foam Tape. For added interest I used Nuvo Crystal Drops to the berries and a shimmer pen to the holly.

The New Domed Foam Applicator from Scrapbook.com Review

Hi everyone,
Today I have a video to share with you doing a product review. I am comparing a traditional foam applicator vs. the new domed foam applicator by Scrapbook.com. I had to try it out for myself to see if this would be the solution to my blending issues. Click on the link below and see for yourself how well the domed foam applies ink onto your cardstock. It is flawless and less time consuming.



I hope you were as amazed as I was how awesome ink blending is with the new domed foam applicator from Scrapbook.com. Here is the link to Scrapbook.com with all the different options to purchase it. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Over The Rainbow Skies Are Blue Card

Hello Everyone,
Today I am sharing a card using the stamp set from Simon Says Stamp Look For The Rainbows. I built the card based on the sentiment. "Skies" lead to the clouds and the color theme Blue. Below you will find the steps to create your own card.


Step 1 - Trim White Cardstock to 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", score at 4 1/4" and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (A2)

Step 2 - Trim White Cardstock to 5 1/2" x 4 1/4". Stamp Look For The Rainbows image towards the bottom using Gina K Amalgam Ink. Stamp again on Gina K Masking Magic. Fussy cut the masked image. Remove the release sheet and apply over the stamped image on the cardstock.

Step 3 - Create clouds using the Mini Cloud Edges Stencil with an ink applicator and Broken China Distress Oxide to the cardstock from Step 2.

Step 4 - Remove the mask and colour in using Alcohol Markers. I used the new Illustrators from Spectrum Noir. See photo towards the end of the post with the caps shown.


Step 5 - Stamp Look For The Rainbow sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink.

Step 6 - Diecut Double Stitched Rectangles to the background. Adhere to card front using fun foam and Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.

Step 7 - For added interest and sparkle randomly adhere Blue Jewels using a Crystal Katana and Collage Medium.




I love when you get inspired by something you don't normally get inspired by. I feel this took me out of my comfort zone. Below is a link to all the products used. For the Illustrators from Spectrum Noir you can get them at Crafter's Companion. All orders over $75 are shipped free. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day.

Below you will find the steps to create your own Pumpkin Spice Coffee Card.

Step 1 - Trim White cardstock to 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", score at 4 1/4 and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (A2).

Step 2 - Diecut Double Stitched Rectangle to Patterned Paper. Adhere to front of card.

Step 3 - Diecut Double Stitched Rectangle and Layered Coffee Cup using Patterned Paper.This is the cover for the shaker. Adhere an acetate window to the inside using Clear Double Sided Tape. Add 2 layers of Foam Tape on the outside edge of the Coffee Cup. Trim a piece of Patterned Paper to seal the shaker and create the inside background. See photo.


Step 4 - Add Tutti Fruiti Sequins Mix and Happy Pumpkin Sprinkles on the background. Make sure it is centered when you place the cover on top. Before adding the cover apply some anti static powder to the inside edges. This will help prevent the sequins from sticking to the sides. Remove the release sheets and adhere to the background. Adhere the shaker to the front of the card.

Step 5 - Diecut Layered Coffee Cup (the cover pieces) and assemble and adhere to card using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.

Step 6 - Optional - Diecut Double Stitched Rectangles using Red Cardstock. Trim the edge so you have a 1/8" border. Adhere to card.

Step 7 - If you have a Xyron Sticker Maker then run it through with a small piece of Vellum. Diecut Layered Coffee Cup (the center piece) using Vellum. Remove the release sheet and adhere to card. If you don't have a Xyron then add the sentiments from Step 8 first and then adhere the vellum placing collage medium where the sentiments are so you don't see the adhesive.

Step 8 - Diecut Got Coffee? (only the word coffee) using Red Cardstock. Adhere on top of the vellum using Collage Medium. Stamp or print Pumpkin Spice on Patterned Paper. Trim and adhere to card below Coffee using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.
