The Stamps of Life Card Kit – November 2022 – 8 Cards – Remember When

Hello Crafty Friends.

I’m so excited to share this month’s club sets from The Stamps of Life.

The Stamp Club and Die Hard Club sets feature three woodland animals — a fox, skunk, and a bear. It has a tree stump for the animals to sit on and several sentiments.

By joining the Stamp club, you will receive the Woodland2Stamp set this month which is shown below.

The Die Hard Club features the Woodland2Stamp stamp set plus the coordinating dies, all shown below.

The Card Kit Club is called Remember When and corresponds to the monthly club set called Woodland2Stamp.

The card kit is packed with so many amazing products! I made 8 cards with the kit and you can see them all below. Before I share my cards, let’s take a look at the contents of the kit.

The Stamps of Life November 2022 Card Kit Unboxing

The kit includes 12 pieces of cardstock, A2 envelopes, plastic storage envelope, paper pad, stamp set, 2 packs of stickers, enamel dots, a Remember When word die, two ribbon, and an A1 Tri-Fold Card Die Set. The die set in the kit makes an A1 size card (3 1/2″ x 5″) and it comes with a word die that says “Huge Hugs.”

There are lots of perks to being a club member. You get club points that can be used to spend in the store, a 15 percent off discount on everything in the store (a 20 percent discount for card kit members), a $15 gift certificate on your club anniversary ($25 for card kit members), and more!

Card Base – Cut with White Cardstock

Scrapbook.com Nested Square Dies
Die cut the smallest square from the right panel. Die cut the 2nd smallest square from the front (left) panel. Using the 3rd smallest square, die cut a piece of a white cardstock, add ink to it, and add it to the middle panel.

Ink for center square- Twisted Citron Distress Oxide and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide

The Stamps of Life November 2022 Card Kit - Tri-fold Card with Critters

This is the front of the Tri-fold card.

The Stamps of Life November 2022 Card Kit - Tri-fold Card with Critters

This panel is on the left opening of the Tri-fold card.

The Stamps of Life November 2022 Card Kit - Tri-fold Card with Critters

This is what the Tri-fold card looks like when fully opened.

Directions:

Card Base
Using the Tri-fold card base die, die cut a piece of White cardstock. Fold at the score lines so the right panel folds inward and the left panel folds inward.

Card Front
Using the background die from the Tri-Fold card die set, cut it with Poppy cardstock. Using a rectangle die from the Tri-fold card die set, cut a piece of the Peacock cardstock. Layer the background die cut piece on top of the Peacock rectangle die cut piece and then place it on the front of the card base. Add the bear, tree stump, and sentiment.

Left Panel
Cut a piece of the Poppy cardstock with the stitched rectangle die from the Tri-Fold card die set. Use a grass die to die cut a piece of the Kiwi cardstock. Use the same stitched rectangle die to die cut the grass die cut. This will put the stitching along the sides of the grass.
The grass die is Sunny Studio Stamps Nature Border Dies.

Center Panel
Open the card. In the middle panel, add the Huge Hugs die cut, a bear, and a leaf from the sticker sheet.

Card 7 – Step-up Card using the Tri-Fold Card Die Set

The Stamps of Life November 2022 Card Kit - Tri-fold Card with Moose - Stand Up Card

Card Base
Using the Tri-fold card base die, die cut a piece of the Midnight (navy blue) cardstock. Fold at the score lines so the right panel folds inward and the left panel folds inward. Flip the card base so that it displays horizontal rather than vertical. (The long side should be at the bottom.)

Card Front
Cut a piece of the red pattern paper with the stitched rectangle die. Cut a piece of the Kiwi (green) cardstock with a grass die. I used the Sunny Studio Stamps Nature Border die set. Using the same stitched rectangle die, die cut the grass die. This will put the stitching along the sides of the grass. Add the moose, sentiment, and leaves.

Bottom Panel
Die cut a piece of the green pattern paper. Add three leaves from the sticker sheet, adding foam underneath. The foam will allow the stickers to raise slightly. This will create some height so that the front panel stays open to sit behind the leaves, thus making it a stand-up card.

Card 8

The Stamps of Life November 2022 Card Kit - Critter card with wagon

White A2 Card Base – 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″

Simple Stories Mix & A-Mingle Card Kit - 8 Christmas Cards
Card Kit, Christmas, Christmas Cards, ephemera, Simple Stories

Quick and Easy Christmas Cards | Simple Stories

Hello Crafty Friends.

Today I’m making some quick and easy Christmas cards using the Simple Stories Mix & A Mingle card kit

Simple Stories Mix & A-Mingle Card Kit

I love Simple Stories card kits because they are so easy to use and you can make several cards pretty quickly. These card kits are perfect for beginner cardmakers, however, if you have been a cardmaker for a long time, these are also fun to use. I really enjoy card kits like this because I don’t have to think about the card design and measurements. I don’t have to cut the paper and I don’t have to think about what ephemera and papers go together because everything is ready to go out of the package. The card designs are already planned out for you and the papers are already cut to size. There is an instruction sheet and all of you have to do is follow the instructions to assemble the cards.

The Simple Stories Mix & A-Mingle card kit includes everything you need to make 8 Christmas cards. It contains pattern paper already cut to size, 46 chipboard pieces, 59 die-cut bits & pieces, (8) A2 size white card bases (4 1/4 x 5 1/2″), and complete step-by-step instructions. You don’t even need scissors because everything is perforated so you just need to pull it apart from the backing sheet. All you need is adhesive!

If you would like to see everything that is included in the card kit and how easy it is to make the cards, check out my video below or on YouTube.

Below are pictures of all of my completed cards.

Pretty Pink Posh Fall Basket and Layered Foliage - Fall handmade card with pumpkins and Leaves
Christmas, Christmas Cards, Distress Ink, Pretty Pink Posh, Stencil, Winter, winter card

2 Fall Cards | Fall Basket Cards

Hello crafty friends.

I’m sharing two autumn cards featuring a few new autumn-themed products from Pretty Pink Posh.

Pretty Pink Posh Fall Basket with Mouse Friends - Fall handmade card

Pretty Pink Posh Fall Basket and Layered Foliage - Fall handmade card with pumpkins and Leaves

If you would like to see how I made my cards, be sure to check out my video below or on YouTube.

For my first card, I started by creating my stenciled background. I cut a piece of cardstock to 3 1/2” x 4 3/4” and applied  Candied Apple Distress Oxide ink to Layer A of the Layered Apples Stencil. I applied the ink very lightly. Next, with Layer A still over my cardstock, I added a little more ink to the bottom of each apple which added some depth to the apples. 

Next, I used Layer B of the Layered Apples Stencil which is used to add the leaves to the apples. I added Twisted Citron Distress Oxide ink to the leaves. Next, I used Layer C of the Layered Apples Stencil along with Antique Linen Distress Oxide ink and added the stems.

The picture below shows what the Layered Apples Stencil looks like, however, the stenciled background in the picture is much darker than the one I created for my card. For my card, I used a much lighter hand when applying the ink because I wanted a lighter background that would not distract from the basket that I would eventually layer on top. If you want a darker look, just apply more pressure with more ink as shown.

Pretty Pink Posh Layered Apples Stencil

When my stencil layer was finished, I added it to a piece of red pattern paper that measures 3 5/8” x 4 7/8”. I added that layer to a piece of green patterned paper that measures 4 1/4” x 5 1/2”. 

Next, I stamped the sentiment “Many Thanks” from the Fall Envelopes Stamp Set onto white cardstock that measures 4 1/4” x 1/2” and added that to a piece of green pattern paper that measures 4 1/4” x 5/8”. I added the sentiment strip to the card front.

Next I was ready to work on my apple basket. After die cutting the Fall Basket, apples, and leaves, I assembled them on the card front. 

As for my cute mouse friend, I colored him up with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens using Mustard, Sugared Almond Pink, and the Blender. I die cut the mouse with the coordinating dies and added it the card.

Finally, I added the panel to an A2 size card base.

Pretty Pink Posh Fall Basket with Mouse Friends - Fall handmade card

For my next card, I used the Pretty Pink Posh Layered Foliage Stencil. I added a variety of fall colored inks to the stencil. I used the Gina K Designs Autumn Premium Dye Ink Cube Assortment which comes in a pack of 8 cube inks in a variety of fall colors.

Pretty Pink Posh Layered Foliage Stencil

I added a spatter of gold to my background using Delicata Golden Glitz ink mixed with water. I also added the Gina K. Designs Fresh Avocado ink to white cardstock and splattered some of the gold ink on the cardstock before die cutting the leaves from the Pretty Pink Posh Fall Basket die set. I die cut the pumpkins from the same die set using orange cardstock and added Distress Oxide Carved Pumpkin ink to the edges to add some depth to the pumpkins.

I die cut a scallop circle from using the Pretty Pink Posh Scallop Circle dies. I inked the center circle with Distress Oxide Shaded Lilac ink and splattered some of the gold ink on top.

I added all of the die cut pieces to the card and added the sentiment “Happy Fall” from the Pretty Pink Posh Fall Envelopes stamp set. I added twine and then added this layer to an A2 size card base.

26 Christmas Cards | Violet Studio Christmas Cardmaking Kits

Hello Crafty Friends.

I’m excited to share some new Christmas-themed products with you from Violet Studio. Violet Studio has several Christmas cardmaking kits, papers, stamps, embossing folders, pattern paper, ephemera, a stocking kit, a banner kit, an embroidery kit, and more! All of this is available over at Scrapbook.com. If you would like to see an unboxing of some of the Christmas products that were sent to me by Scrapbook.com, take a look at my video below.

If you are looking for some super easy Christmas cards to make, then check out the Violet Studio Nutcracker Collection – Christmas Cardmaking Kit. This kit includes 10 card blanks that measure 6″ x 6″ and 10 beautifully foiled envelopes. There are 10 decoupage sheets, 10 sheets with cut-outs to pop up the design on the card fronts, adhesive foam pads, and an instruction sheet.

Here are the two cards that I made with the Violet Studio – The Nutcracker Cardmaking Kit.

These cards were so easy to create — just separate the pieces at the perforated lines and attach them to the card front. The pieces are numbered so it’s easy to see where they go.

Use the foam pieces that are included in the kit to layer the pieces and you’ll have a card with lots of dimension!

You can add your own embellishments too! On the snow globe card on the left, I added the Scrapbook.com White Pops of Color on top of the snowflakes for added dimension.

I also made a lot of cards using the Violet Studio Home for Christmas Card Making & Stamping Kit as well as the Violet Studio Home for Christmas Diecutting & Embossing Kit.

The Card Making & Stamping Kit contains a stamp set, stickers, ephemera, a pattern paper pad, pom poms, and 6″ x 6″ card bases and envelopes that are already decorated for you.

The Diecutting & Embossing Kit contains two embossing folders, a few dies, embellishments, ribbon, and 6″ x 6″ blank card bases and envelopes.

Since everything in this collection goes together, I decided to combine the two kits to create my 24 cards.

In addition to the kits above, I also brought in some solid cardstock from Scrapbook.com. I used the Scrapbook.com Peppermint Smooth Cardstock and the Scrapbook.com Christmas Smooth Cardstock. I thought that the colors in these two paper pads really complemented the pattern paper pad well.

If you would like to watch my design process for all 24 cards I made with the Home for Christmas kits, then watch my video on YouTube or below.

Distress Spray Stains – Autumn Cards

Hi Crafty Friends!

Today I’m sharing two autumn cards using distress spray stains. Spray stains are such an easy way to get a lot of ink on your cardstock for creating backgrounds, die cutting, and more.  The distress spray stains come in all of the same colors as the distress inks, however, they are in a liquid spray.  I picked up several different colors and will be using some of them for my cards today.

Fall Card with Distress Spray Stains - Scrapbook.com Hi Fall Stamp - Scrapbook.com Autumn Breeze Stencil - Scrapbook.com Autumn Leaves Die

Watch my video on YouTube or below to see how I made my cards.

I started by adding several colors of the Distress Spray Stains to watercolor cardstock. Between applications, I dried the backgrounds and then added more ink. I love the look of the distress spray stains on the cardstock. It gives such depth and texture to the cardstock. Even though I used the same colors for each piece of cardstock, every background is different.

Distress Spray Stain Backgrounds for Fall or Autumn Cards

Next, I turned those backgrounds into cards. For the card below, I used one of the backgrounds with the Scrapbook.com Autumn Breeze stencil. I spritzed the stencil with water and added it to the inked background. The water moved the ink around on the cardstock, leaving the open area of the stencil without water which made those areas look darker so you can see the shape of the leaves and pumpkins. I used another background to die cut it with the Scrapbook.com Autumn Leave dies. I added a sentiment from the Scrapbook.com Hi Fall Stamp Set.

For the card below, I added the leftover die cut leaves to a card to create the look of pattern paper and added a sentiment from the Scrapbook.com Hi Fall Stamp Set in the middle. I love the look of the die cut leaves against the white background. I think the white background really makes the leaves “pop”!

If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I love to make shaker cards. Today I’m sharing a shaker card I made using some products from Pretty Pink Posh’s new winter/Christmas release. To celebrate the new holiday release, Pretty Pink Posh is having an Instagram hop where you have a chance to win a $30 gift certificate to the Pretty Pink Posh shop.

Mitten Shaker Card - Winter Wishes Card - Snowflake Stencil Card - Pretty Pink Posh Mitten Shaker Die

If you would like to see how I made my card, be sure to check out my video below or on YouTube.

For my card, I used the Mitten Shaker die set. I filled the shaker with the Peppermint clay confetti and the Winter Snowflakes clay confetti. I added the mittens to a snowflake stenciled background that I made with the Layered Snowflakes Stencil. I used Tumbled Glass, Broken China, and Speckled Egg distress oxide inks on the stencil. I added the Winter Wishes Script die for the sentiment. I also added a snowflake die cut shape to the mitten and added a Ruby Red Pearl to the center.

My card measurements are as follows:

Snowflake Stenciled Background – 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
Blue Cardstock – 5 3/4″ x 5 3/4″
White Card Base – 6″ x 6″

If you would like to see the entire release, you can watch my video below or on YouTube.

For the blog hop, I’m sharing four cards that I made with some of the new products from Pretty Pink Posh’s new release. For my cards, I use some stepped-up stenciling techniques to add glitter and shine to my stenciled cards.

Card 1

For my first card, I used the Layered Coffee Cups stencil. For Layer A, I used Scrapbook.com Pine ink. For Layer B, I added Ground Espresso Distress Oxide ink to everything except for the coffee cup sleeve.  I added Versamark ink for the coffee cup sleeve and then I sprinkle red embossing powder over the sleeves of the coffee cups and heat set them.

For Layer C, I inked the coffee steam with Scrapbook.com Fog ink. Next, I added Versarmark ink to the hearts and bottom of the coffee mugs. I use red embossing powder to cover these areas and then heat set them. Next, I reapplied stencil Layer C, adding Versamark ink to the stars. I used Brutus Monroe Gilded embossing powder and heat set it. I just love the look of the embossing powder on the stenciled background. It adds such a pretty shine to the stenciled background.

I used a rectangle die to cut the coffee cup background and added it to a piece of white cardstock.

Using the snowflake die from the Mitten Shaker die set, I die cut 10 white snowflakes and glued them around the outside edge of a piece of red cardstock. I added the coffee cup layer to the top of the red snowflake paper.

I stamped a sentiment from the Holiday Sentiments stamp set and cut it out with a banner die from the Holiday Envelopes die set. I layered the white banner onto a red banner and offset it.

I added some Ruby Red Pearls to my card. My finished card is an A2 size card which measures 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.

Layer B:  Scrapbook.com Pine ink
Layer C:  Scrapbook.com Cardinal Red ink

Pretty Pink Posh - Layered Winter Foliage Stencil Card - taking your stencils to the next level adding glitter and shine

After I inked all layers of the stencil, I added each stencil layer back on top of my cardstock and added Brutus Monroe Alabaster Glitter Glaze to each stencil layer. After applying the glitter glaze to each layer, I set it aside to fully dry before reapplying the glitter glaze to the next stencil layer. The glitter glaze adds so much sparkle to the stenciled background. It even resembles snow sitting on top of the leaves and pinecones.

I used a rectangle die to cut the stenciled background and added it to a piece of red cardstock. I stamped the Pine Wreath Stamp in Scrapbook.com Pine ink onto green cardstock and die cut it with the coordinating dies. I brushed some Brutus Monroe Alabaster Glitter Glaze all over the wreath. I added the Pine Wreath Stamp Set to the top of the card along with some acorns and a bow. I added the word Joy to the wreath. I used the Scrapbook.com Pops of Color in Rudolph Red to add berries to the wreath.
