i-crafter | October Release Holiday Dovetail Card

 It's time for the October release from i-crafter! And there's a lot more to make your Holidays bright! I'm showing you how simple it is to create with the Holiday Dovetail Die Set in today's video. Mass producing stunning cards with this die set is a breeze! 




The Holiday Dovetail Die Set easily makes an interactive peek through card. Be sure to use double sided patterned paper or cardstock with this die as you'll not only see the front but the back of the paper in the finished product as well. 





I added a die cut sentiment from the Holiday Dovetail Die Set onto my card. You want to make sure you keep any added elements on the right side of the fold.- in my case the mint side. This will make sure you can easily open the card. 






The Holiday Dovetail Card Die Set as well as the rest of the October release are available in the i-crafter online store now! Happy shopping!

InkOn3 | Halloween Pumpkin Card

Hooray for fall and Halloween! Atelier Inks are just perfect for solid stamping! They're smooth and crisp and everything wonderful! 








I grabbed my Pondie Stencil and temporarily adhered it to a piece of white cardstock and blended Blackout Hybrid Detail Ink over the stencil. This is my favorite ink for black ink blending - you get the same crisp and deep black color for ink blending that you get with stamping. It's amazing! And the Pondie Stencil is definitely not a Halloween Stencil, but I think it's spooky with the Blackout Hybrid Ink






Now it's time to bust out the Atelier Inks! I stamped my solid pumpkins with Marigold Orange, Bee Sting Yellow, and My Jam Purple, the leaves with Goddess Green, and the stems with Twiggy Brown. The inks are GORGEOUS! And they really pop against the black stenciled background! 






I die cut the pumpkins and added them to the front of my card with foam tape and added a sentiment that I stamped with Blackout Hybrid Detail Ink to the bottom of the card. That's all! Happy Halloween!

Pink & Main | Have a Joyous Christmouse

Hello! It's time for sneak peeks for the new release from Pink & Main! And ohhhh is this release amazing!  





I mixed and matched some new release items and some new release goodies for this card. I used the new Christmouse Stamp Set because ... well ... it's adorable! These little mice were calling to me! I stamped and colored the image of the mouse decorating the tree from the Christmouse Stamp Set ( available October 1st! ) and then used the coordinating Christmouse Die Set and my Mini Maker Die Cutting Machine to cut out the image. 






I love little scenes, but honestly I'm not very good at creating them! So instead I lean on patterned paper! I picked a pink and white polka dotted pattern from the new Falling for You 6x6 Paper Pack and a plaid pattern from the previously released Winter Wonderland 6x6 Paper Pack. I love how the patterns and colors of the two paper packs play together! And the plaid reminded me of wallpaper, so I thought it was perfect! I cut a strip of the polka dotted pattern and adhered it to the plaid cardstock and cut them together with a Stitched Circle Die






I die cut a piece of gray polka dot patterned paper from the Winder Wonderland 6x6 Paper Pack with the largest die from the Stitched Rectangles 1 Die Set. I added my circle scene to the polka dotted background with foam tape and added a stamped banner sentiment from the Christmouse Stamp Set under the scene. I hope you've enjoyed this peek at the new release from Pink & Main! Everything will be available in the shop on October 1st!

i-crafter | Colorful Latte Background

Hi, there! I have an easy card to share using one of my favorite ways to create a background - repetitive stamping! I used the super cute Latte Coffee Stamp Set from i-crafter!  





I found that when stamping layering stamps it's easiest to start with the outline - especially with this image. Since the handle of the mug sticks out a bit I wanted to make sure that I had space for the full cup. I stamped the outline of the cup from the Latte Coffee Stamp Set all over an A2 card base 






Now the fun part! I used two different latte images and filled in the mugs with a rainbow of Hybrid Inks. I started by stamping each color three times in a sort of triangle across the card and then filled in where needed as I got to the end of stamping. 






I stamped a sentiment from the Latte Coffee Stamp Set onto a strip of white cardstock and finished my card by adhering the strip to the card with foam tape. See you again soon!

Whimsy Stamps Friday Frenzy | Easy Halloween Shaker Card

Whimsy Stamps has done it again! They have another paper pad with ready made scenes! There's no need to stress about stamping or masking or anything! The Vampire 6x6 Patterned Papers are PERFECT for easy shaker cards! 





This shaker card is so easy, but I thought I would share all the tips and tricks I know in the video above! I chose one of my favorite patterned scenes from the Vampire 6x6 Patterned Papers and cut it with the largest of the Zig Zag Rectangle Dies. Then I taped the two largest of the Zig Zag Rectangle Dies together and cut a frame from heavy white cardstock. 





I created a simple shaker with a piece of acetate and some Double Thick Foam Tape. This is one of the BEST things I have ever found for creating shaker cards! I used some powder tool to reduce static and filled my shaker with sequins and added my Vampire Patterned Paper scene to seal up the shaker. 






All that's left is a sentiment! I die cut the Foolish Mortals Word Die four times - three times from regular black cardstock and once from black glitter cardstock. I adhered the stack of sentiments together with the glittered die cut on top and added them to the left of my shaker card. That's it!
