Shaking it Up with Hot Cocoa!

Friday, November 30th, 2018

Happy Friday crafty friends, today I’m here with a Christmas card using the THANKS A LATTE stamp set.

I just adore this stamp set from Lawn Fawn, it’s so versatile and today I wanted to show you a shaker card and non-traditional Christmas colors using this cute little stamp set. Also, with today being the start of the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, this set is perfect with all the different options you get for fall and winter!

Nothing says winter to me like hot cocoa and candy canes, so here’s my card for you today.

I started by creating a panel from Bristol Smooth paper and blending Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Peacock Feathers Distress Inks.  I then splattered some White Gesso which  I watered down and splattered onto the panel. Once the panel was dry, I die cut the panel using the second largest MFT Rounded Banner Die.

I then stamped the Mug, scarf and cocoa element onto Design Paper from my stash and fussy cut them out. For the Candy Cane, I stamped the image onto Recollectons Glitter Silver cardstock and colored the stripes with a Red Sharpie and fussy cut it out as well. I  paper pieced and adhered all the images onto the background panel with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive. I created the shaker portion by using two of the Rounded Banner Stax dies and die cutting it 6 times from cardstock and gluing them onto top of eachother, instead of using foam tape. I find by layering the diecuts out of cardstock, it creates a sturdier Shaker element. I adhered an acetate panel onto the top layer and glued one more diecut layer to hide the glue on the acetate. Once it was dry, I added Diamond Dust and light blue seed beads to create the shaker elements inside, as I thought it looked like snow. I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink onto white cardstock, layered it onto the teal cardstock and slanted the one end with scissors. A snowflake and gem from my stash finished off the front of my card.

I used an Art Impressions sentiment  for the inside of the card that depicted warm wishes to tie in the cocoa and design elements from the front of my card.

I sure hope you enjoyed my warm and cozy shaker card today.

Happy Crafting!

November Blog Hop & Challenge!

Friday, November 16th, 2018

Welcome to our November Blog Hop, where we are introducing our November Challenge (you can play along with us on Facebook!) and hopefully bringing you inspiration to create a Movember Madness card which features mustaches or a masculine theme!  We are featuring a fun little Retro Masculine die set by Impression Obsession, but you can interpret the challenge however you wish…

We will be giving away prizes, of course- 3 of you who leave comments along the way of the hop will win one of the Retro Masculine die sets, and one lucky challenge participant will get a $50 gift certificate to spend in the SNS online store!   Scrap ‘N Stamp will also be be donating 10% of net sales on hop Day to the Movember foundation in support of men’s health issues.

For my card, I’ve paired  the Retro Masculine Dies with mugs from the ‘Thanks a Latte’ set by Lawn Fawn.  I die cut the entire set and played around with placement of them to add some fun character to the mugs, which I colored with Copic Markers.  I pulled a 6×6 pad out from my stash (perhaps you recognize this old fave, Mamarazzi, by BoBunny.  It’s probably 7 years old!) and chose papers using inspiration from a recent card sketch I found online.  I’ve switched things up a bit, but you can probably still see the design 😉  One of Tim’s SNARKY small talk sentiment stickers was a perfect fit to help me with my design… After a bit of playing around, I added some ribbon and moved a third mug to the inside of the card, then added a fun border of die cut shapes at the bottom of the card.

I love the personality the die cuts add to my mugs!  As you can see, I added some Glossy Accents to the coffee.  yum.

Inside the card, I added a strip of patterned paper & the smaller mug, which is from the mini Pumpkin Spice stamp set, also by Lawn Fawn.  I can see the three mugs being used together to represent a family (with a mustache on just one, of course!).  The sentiment is from the Thanks a Latte set.  I love that there are so many options to mix & match between the two sets!

I had fun creating this card and making a card that is whimsical, snarky & masculine!  The girls have put together some fun projects, I think you’re going to enjoy this hop!  And remember, we’d love to see what you are making too!  Please join us on the Challenge Page on Facebook and play along!  Now that you’ve seen my card, it’s time to continue on and get hopping…

The hop starts here with Tara, then goes to

You’re Stinkin’ Cute!

Saturday, November 10th, 2018

I just adore the mini Stamp sets from Lawn Fawn, especially this little cutie, Stinkin Cute set and Coordinating Die.

These little sets are so versatile and great additions to any stamp collection at the lower price points. :o)

Here’s my lil’ card that I made usin the Stinkin Cute stamp and Die sets along with some pencil crayons and gamsol.

I stamped the image with Jet Black Archival Ink onto Bristol Smooth paper, and colored the image with Derwent Pencil Crayons, but the Chamelon Pencil Crayons, work just as great. I blended the 2-3 color shades with Gamsol and blending stump.

I then used the Coordinating die to cut out the image and flower. For my card base, I used Charcoal Recollections Cardstock and some Design Paper in Grey and Mint Green from CraftSmith. I used two Small Circle Dies and offset them off my card front and stamped the sentiment onto mint Cardstock and die cut with MFT- Fishtail Flag Frame dies and just cut the one end off to create banners.

I finished off the inside off my card with a few more offset circles and a sentiment from Recollections.

There we have it, a CAS card that has a lot of CUTE FACTOR!! lol!

Happy Craftin’!
