Winter Hearts of Magic

Friday, January 17th, 2020

Hello everyone. Kia here with you today to share this adorable Penny Black image called Bundled Buddies.  I thought this would make a sweet card to make my friend for her granddaughter.

I started with a very pale pink card tent fold card.

Using Strathmore Bristol Smooth I did my background pieces using Nuvo Shimmer Powder Catherine Wheel. On plastic wrap I sprinkled the shimmer powder then spritzed with water before laying my Bristol in it. I then heat dried the piece and did a second round with the colour, again heat drying.

For the top layer I sprinkled the Bristol paper with the Shimmer Powder, then hit it with water, being sure to leave some white space. I attached the two pieces of Bristol together on an angle.

On the top piece of Bristol and using my snowflake stencil I applied texture transparent glossy paste and set it aside to dry. You can see the snowflake in the top right corner, and once you know what to look for the snowflakes will appear throughout the piece.

Using Fabriano Hot Press water colour paper and VersaFine Clair ink in Nocturne, I stamped the Penny Black image and proceeded to paint using the Nuvo Shimmer Powder as my colour. The red is several layers of the Catherine Wheel, and the green is several layers of the Green Parade. Once finished and dried I fussy cut her out.

I added the Bristol layers to my card base using Fun Foam and Be Creative/Scor-pal Tape. I then attached the Penny Black image using foam squares.

Using my Gemini Jr. I die cut the snowflakes and the Valentine Heart painting the heart the same as I did the scarf. I cut a couple of the snowflakes in half and tucked them in, and added the larger snowflake to the left.

On the red heart I added Glossy Accents to the corner and covered it with WOW Midas Touch Embossing Glitter and a few gems, then attached it over the snowflake.

To finish the outside I painted a light coat of the shimmer powder and stamped my sentiment using a red ink.

For the inside I again did a Bristol Paper panel using the same colours as on the front of the card. I die cut the snowflake frame, and sprinkled the powder on it and spritzed. then attached one of the snowflake halves and adhered to the background pieces.

The inside is finished with the sentiment stamped from the Penny Black Little Charmer stamp set.

I so wish you could see the shimmer from the powder and the stencilling, it is very pretty.

I think it is the perfect little card for my friend to give her granddaughter, and I hope you enjoy this as well. Thank you for joining us today.

A Warm and Feathered Valentines

Sunday, December 15th, 2019

Hi crafty friends and welcome back. It’s Sandi here and today I’ve created a fun Valentine’s card to share with you using My Favorite things products and Copic Markers called a Warm and Feathered Valentines.


Yeah, I’m so excited to tell you that Scrap ‘N Stamp has Copic Markers Back in stock for all your colouring adventures.

A Warm and Feathered Valentines

I started by blending Distress Oxides for the background. Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Squeezed Lemonade and Picked Raspberry. Then I placed the Lots of Hearts Stencil over this and used the darkest color, Picked Raspberry to blend in some hearts. When the ink was dry, I splatted a bit of white paint to give the illusion of snow.

The final step for the background, I white heat embossed the snowflakes and sentiment.

A Warm and Feathered Valentines

I took advantage of the recent Memory Box Die sale and scooped up these Alpine Trees which I die cut to create my snow covered trees and frosty mountain. The white background really helps to make that little owl POP.

Finally, I stamped my owl in copic friendly Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored him with my Copic Markers and then die cut him out with the coordinating dies.

The sentiment set I used, Birdie Brown greetings is currently out of stock so I have linked to Greetings Galore which is a similar set and has lots of different sentiments you could use on this card.

That’s it for me today, hope you enjoyed the project. I have linked the supplies I used for A Warm and Feathered Valentines card below for you and until next time, Happy Stamping

Adoring Hearts

Hello all, Kia back with you today to share these cards I made using Alcohol Inks. I loved the look of the two red and salmon backgrounds that I decided I would make them into Valentine cards. I then thought I would do the green and pink for a friend, who’s favourite colour is green. I also used a new to me heart die from Memory Box Open Studio Die called Wrapped Stitch Heart. Scrap’n Stamp does not have it in the store as yet, but you can get it at the link I provided for you.

For the green and pink card I used Clover and Raspberry Alcohol Inks, along with the Blending Solution. Once I finished the background, I added in the Gold Deco Foil using the Deco Adhesive. I then die cut heart using my Gemini Jr. and added the Clover ink on it, along with adding a faint amount of ink to the label before I stamped the sentiment with Memento Ink.

You can find the Video I did for the above card here.

For this card I used the Salmon and Poppyfield inks. I love the boldness of this card. I also added Gold Deco Foil to both the background and heart die, and stamped the sentiment on the heart using Memento Ink.

Another card using the Salmon and Poppyfield, with the sentiment stamped in the lower right corner. I certainly did enjoy making these cards, and I hope I have inspired you to make some alcohol ink backgrounds for Valentine’s Day. There are other close up pictures on my blog which can be found in this post.

Thank you for joining us here at Scrap’n Stamp. I am also attaching links to the products I used for these cards.
