Take 2 Precious Peony

Hello crafters. Kia here with a follow up of my card from last week using the Altenew Precious Peony Stamp set, which I cannot say enough, I just love, love, love!

Earlier this week I watched a video by Gina K Designs where she made a Double Gatefold card, and I wanted to use the design for this card today. I do love the look of the sweeping flowers which I coloured using Copic markers. When closed the layers match up, so one might think there is only one image, when there is acutally two! How fun!

The flowers are B02, B04, B06 and B06, B18, B99. For the leaves I used V01, V04, V06, V17 and BG15. The matting is done using Spellbinders Island View cardstock. My base is Neenah 110lb and the embossed layers are Hammermill 100lb. The lattice embossing is done using Spellbinders Bamboo Trellis embossing folder.

I used Tim Holtz sentiments for the Gatefold part of the card, and the inside sentiment says “Have a Beautiful Day”.

I hope you have enjoyed Take 2, and that you will give this fold card a try. If you do, remember to share it with us in the Facebook Scrap’n Stamp Challenge page. It is certainly fun to do. Thank you for visiting with Scrap’n Stamp today.

Have a Beautiful Day!

I’m Dreaming of a Red Christmas Gnome…

Hello and happy Friday! It’s my turn today to pick a Random Acts of Cardness challenge prompt, and I chose RED – which just happens to be my favourite colour. 🙂  For me, red is good all year round, but definitely comes into its own for Christmas cards – and since it’s mid-October (what?) I am all about cranking out the Christmas cards:



I even managed to incorporate a gnome! (Have you visited and commented on our Gnome for the Holidays blog hop yet? Don’t forget, one lucky commenter wins a $50 gc to the store!) I’m using the same Spellbinders Holiday Gnomes stamps that I used for my hop card, combining it with die cuts from Concord & 9th’s Cozy Christmas die set. And wait, is that the world’s oldest embossing folder in the background? Why yes, it is! I think anyone who owned a Cuttlebug back in the day has this folder, but Scrap ‘n Stamp has a fun variety of much newer folders to choose from. 😉



If you add some RED to your next card, I hope you’ll add it to the challenge page on Facebook! And if the upcoming festive cardmaking frenzy has you needing a few new supplies, you are welcome to use my design team code, 10Lindsey, for 10% off your order. 🙂


Die Stenciling

Hello all! Kia here with you today to share my card for Random Act of Cardness, keyword Stencil.

To start my card I first stenciled the background using distress inks in peeled paint, twisted citron and squeezed lemonade. I knew I wanted to use this die by Spellbinders but I was not sure how I wanted to use it.

I opted to use opaque crackle paste for the texture that it would add to the flower, and to ensure it would cover the stenciling underneath. I die cut the flower using 80lb. cardstock to use as my stencil. This will not hold up so be sure to remove it as soon as you are done applying the paste.

I did apply the paste in a rough way, which adds even more texture to the flower.

Once the paste was dry I applied squeezed lemonade, kitsch flamingo and barn door to the flower using the small circle brush from my Life Changing Brushes. I then added Midas Touch Shimmering Pen.

Again, once all was dry I die cut another flower die piece from 110lb. Neenah card, and glued it in place. I then trimmed the card panel to size and using glue attached it to my card base.

I then die cut two of the Gina K Design hugs, one from red glitter card and the other from black cardstock, gluing them together, then gluing to the flower.

This was such a fun card to make and I hope I have inspired you to try die stenciling.
