Hero Arts Winter Mittens All Occasions Card



Hi Everyone, Hope you are inside and warm if your in the Midwest - Northeast braving this Polar Vortex. I know I would much like to not leave the house at all this week, but that's wishful thinking!
If you're going out, bundle up!

This is a card I created for the current "Crafters Choice" challenge over at A Blog Named Hero. I've had this stamp set for a long while now and would you believe, have never used it?! It appears to now be discontinued, but that's okay - 



Here's what I did 
1. I used my Darice/Park Lane embossing diffuser as a mask and ink blended a square frame to house
    my stamped images. These embossing diffusers can be purchased at Joann Stores under the Park
    Lane brand, or online under the Darice brand. See my full review on them here 
2. Next, I ran the card stock through my die machine with a cuttlebug embossing folder, using the 
    embossing diffuser to emboss only the un-inked portion of the card stock. 
3. Setting that aside, I stamped and copic colored my images, and die cut them with the coordinating 
    dies or alternatively you could use an electronic cutting machine such as the brother scan n cut.
4. To finish, I stamped my sentiment on some Lavendar cardstock with Versamark Ink and heat 
     embossed my sentiment, before mounting the whole card onto that same cardstock. 


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

Neat and Tangled My Favorite Nut Valentines Card



Hi Everyone! Popping in today with a quick post to show you this card I made while playing with the Neat & Tangled My Favorite Nut stamp set. I was inspired by the color challenge over at Sunday Stamps, and put together a very clean / kinda simple card. 

My background was a combination of distress oxide ink blending around the edges with some nuvo glimmer paste over top a wood grain stencil to fill in the background (left over ink on my uncleaned stencil ended up creating a kinda cool wood colored effect.. )

My image was stamped on watercolor paper and watercolored using some distress inks that matched the color challenge. I cut my image out with my brother scan n cut but you could also use the coordinating dies. 

To finish i stamped my sentiment onto some coordinating cardstock and heat embossed, before adding to my card, and finished with simple die cuts hearts covered with Nuvo Shimmer and dimensional glaze.

Lawn Fawn Winter Shaker Card for Dies R Us


Hi Everyone, I'm up on the Dies R Us blog today playing with some Lawn Fawn stamps and dies from the Dies R Us store! I love birch tree's and have admired this die for a long time. When I was brain storming what to do with it first, shaker card came to mind, and now here we are. 

I was feeling gray and blue vibes from the Lawn Fawnatics challenge theme so I started off with a 4x5.25 piece of gray card stock which I die cut with a lawn fawn scallop circle die to make my shaker opening. I used a creative expressions border die to cut off the bottom 4th of the card panel, and then ran it through with a snowflake embossing folder.

On my card base, I used a wintery patterned patter on the bottom portion of the card, with a coordinating solid card stock above as a base for my tree's. I arranged and adhered by bird tree's down in the center of the card, and added that panel down on top of my prepared shaker window. 

For my sentiment I stamped it on vellum with versamark and heat embossed with some white embossing powder. And there you have it! Thanks so much for stopping by today and Happy New Year!
