Concord and 9th Hugs Card for Dies R Us





Hi Everyone, I'm on the Dies R Us blog today with some more Valentines! I love this Hugs die from Concord and 9th because its perfect for friend/family Valentines Day cards, and all occasions cards year round. 



I knew I wanted to make a set of cards so I kept the design fairly simple. 
Here what I did:

  • First I cut several white panels to 4x5.25 and ran them through my die cut machine with a simple heart die to create a window
  • I repeated this process with pieces of fun foam cut slightly smaller than my panel, and adhered the two together, for dimension
  • Using a strong adhesive, I adhered glitter paper to the fun foam, to show through my heart window
  • Onto the front of the card, I die cut the Hugs die in a color of card stock that coordinated with my glitter paper, and used Vellum to cut the shadow. I adhere this across the window, hiding my glue behind the card stock 
  • Lastly, I glued the whole completed panel down to the same coordinating card stock used for the Hugs die.

Simple Rainbow Birthday Card with Paper Smooches


Happy Sunday everyone! Quick post today to share a little birthday card I made with my new Paper Smooches set. I love the sentiments that are in this stamp set, but also these balloons! 

I colored them in rainbow order with my Zig clean color real brush pens. I knew those would blend well with the overlapped areas, but to avoid too much traveling, I heat embossed the balloon images with clear embossing powder after stamping. 


I wanted my sentiment also heat embossed, but the ink I choose was a dye based ink, so I just stamped overtop of it with Versamark while my stamp as still lined up in my MISTI and then clear heat embossed as well. 

To finish, I cut my stamped/colored panel out with the Avery Elle wonky stitches die, and then adhered that onto some rainbow card stock from Sunny Studio. 


Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you'll join me on my crafty journey, find more crafty fun on my Instagram and Facebook Page

"Smile" Wedding Layout with Simple Stories & Pinkfresh Studio


I am determined to get this album done this year. Early this year! It's only been 4.5 years since the wedding ha-ha. In keeping true to my clean and simple style of scrapbooking this layout focuses on the photos with two small embellishment clusters to frame them out, and a simple wood word title.



All of my papers are a part of the retired "Vintage Bliss"collection from Simple Stories, one of my all time favorites that I keep re-purchasing so long as I can find it around the web. For my embellishments I did a little brand mixing and added assorted items from Pinkfresh Studio. I used a paper smooches tag die to create my own tags using paper from the Simple Stories collection.



I followed the current Scraproom sketch to get my design, changing it up only by moving the title and omitting the subtitle.

Lawn Fawn Love Bugs for Dies R Us



Hi Everyone, Kristina here getting started on Valentine's Day cards. I love these cute little love bugs and the sentiments with this set are so cute. Here's what I did:

  1. Mask of the bottom of a 4x5.25 card panel with some post it tape and use a very light hand
    to blend some light pink ink in a small focal point section. I used clarity brushes for this.
  2. Using the same color ink, stamp some small heart images for a tone on tone background
  3. Remove your post it tape mask and add an accent strip of Washi tape. I went with a narrow rose gold piece.
  4. For one added piece of interest I stamped one of the bug trails from the set, in the shape of a heart onto my background.
  5. Stamp, Color, and Die Cut your images and adhere with foam tape or other dimensional adhesive. 
  6. To finish, I mounted my card onto some glitter card stock with Extreme adhesive, added some shimmer pen accents to the lady bugs, and a few gems to round it all out.


And there ya have it! Thank you for stopping by today. You can find my supplies linked below, and I'll see you back here same time next week!
