Cool Yule Masculine Card

Monday, December 17th, 2018

I don’t know about you, but I always seem to struggle with making masculine cards.

So with a few males on my christmas list this year, I played around with the Tim Holtz COOL YULE dies. Here’s one of the masculine Christmas themed cards I came up with. :o)

I started with some Designer Christmas paper in plaid and then cut out a frame using the Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Frames from Lawn Fawn in a coordinating cardstock.  I adhered the frame to my designer paper using Nuvo Deluxe Glue. I then adhered the panel to a Kraft Cardstock base.

I then cut out a circle using Spellbinder’s Pierced Circles from some more Designer paper and inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide. Now for the fun part, I cut out all the snowman pieces from the Cool Yule Die set in different cardstocks and adhered him together….how COOL is he? hehehehe This is such a fun set as you can mix and match a lot of the pieces….so much variablitily in this set!I adhered him to the circle with Foam Tape and finished with a sentiment from Tim Holtz Snowman Blueprint set. Which has a label I stamped with Versafine Vintage Sepia ink and the sentiment in StazOn Blazing Red Ink.

I kept it pretty simple for mailing and like I said before, I struggle with Masculine cards and WHEN TO STOP. lol. But here’s the inside using the same design as the front and an old sentiment from Cornish Heritage Farms.

I hope y’all have a Happy Holidays and I’ll see you back here after Christmas with another fun lil’ make.

Happy Craftin’!



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’!



Have A Beautiful Day

Wednesday, August 1st, 2018

Hello! Kia here today to bring you some flowers from My Favorite Things Love Buds Stamp Set, and Love Buds Die Set.

I started by water colouring the flowers using Zig Clean Color Real Brushes, and once dry went over the flowers with Clear Wink of Stella.

I then moved on to my front panel, die cutting the circle in the panel with my  Spellbinders Circle Die, Large. I wanted to add texture to the front panel, but I did not want it to be distracting, so I stamped my panel using a Hero Arts background stamp called Foliage Bold Prints and heat embossed with Nuvo White Embossing Powder. Scrap’n Stamp doesn’t have this background stamp presently, but most background stamps would work for this. I also die cut a piece of Ranger Distress Watercolour Paper with the circle die and watercoloured in the blue to use for my flower background. I attached the front panel to my card base using fun foam, then dropped the blue circle inside the die cut circle. I styled and attached the flowers using foam dots, then added the sentiment stamped with Ranger’s Manganese Blue on a Lawn Fawn Label Die and finished with a few sequins.

I hope you enjoy this card today, and wish to thank you for visiting.
