Video: Using Clarity Stencil Brushes for a Fall Card

close up 1

Hello everyone, I’m up on the Kat Scrappiness blog again and this time with a process video 🙂 I’m featuring the Clarity Stencil Brushes with this card, as I just recently got a pack and fell in love with them immediately! I like them so much better than the Ranger ink blending tool to apply Distress Ink through stencils. I’m also using a hilarious stamp set from Newton’s Nook, a Carta Bella paper pack and stencil, and a really pretty sequins mix from Kat Scrappiness. But see for yourself: I hope you enjoyed my video for this snarky birthday card …


Video: My Top 5 Craft Supplies for Art Journaling


Hello everyone 🙂 I have another Top 5 video for you: my top 5 craft supplies for art journaling. Woohoo! I tried not to grab my favorite paints, but tell you something about my favorite “tools” that I’m using instead. Number 1 – Finnabair Silikon Brush 2″ I use this brush for Gesso mainly. It’s super nice to spread the Gesso with it, you can add some texture, if you want and it’s super durable so far. Number 2 – Mister Bottle Finding a good and inexpensive mister bottle wasn’t easy till I found this three pack on Amazon. I …


Video: Let’s Celebrate Snarktoberfest – A Snarky Fall Card


Hello everyone and welcome to Snarktoberfest 🙂 October is the perfect month to celebrate a little silly-ness. Year end is close, people are freaking out about that, elections are going nuts this year, so lets distract ourselves with a little snark. And what is better than the amazing stamps from So Suzy? Nothing comes to mind for me 😛 I created this snarky Fall card to show you that you can combine your Halloween stamps with everyday snark and thus converting them to cards that you can send year-round. I thought that a video is just the right medium to …


Bah Humbug – A Snarktoberfest Christmas Card

bah humbug

Welcome back to Snarktoberfest. Let’s continue with our snarky celebrations and spread the fun and giggles 🙂 Today’s card is rather simple and could be your perfect Christmas card for this year 😉 I started by cutting the background with a stitched border die. Then I stamped the “Bah Humbug” to the left and the MFT reindeer to the right side. I just love the face expression of it! It fits perfect with that sentiment 😀 Now I colored the reindeer and added some Nuvo Drops in Morning Dew to the nose and the Christmas ornaments. Finally, I adhered it …


A Fairy Tale Behind The Rainbow

A Fairy Tale Behind the Rainbow

Welcome to the So Suzy Butterfly Music stamp special. All the Design Team members created stunning cards for this stamp and I hope that you’re going to check out all of them. You might have an idea overload afterwards, but I bet you can channel the energy to create your own amazing card using this stamp. It’s just too gorgeous to pass up 😉 I had to pair it with the quote from Hans Christian Andersen. Even though the quote “Where words fail, music speaks” from Hans Christian Andersen is not from one of his fairy tales, I remember some …


Cancer Awareness Card for Kat Scrappiness

Wow, October is half way done and there are still so many things to be done for this year… But let’s take a break from all the year end preparations and focus on some other things 😉 As you might know, October is breast cancer awareness month.

The Design Team at Kat Scrappiness loved this set so much that we wanted to share it with you. Join our challenge for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate for Newton’s Nook, …


Video: My Top 5 Craft Supplies for Card Making


Hello everyone 🙂 Today I wanted to share something different with you, not a card or art journal page, but my top 5 craft supplies for card making. Some of them are new to me, but they totally changed the way I use other products with them or craft in general. Others are great helpers for nearly every card I make. I don’t want to bore you to death with useless chatter at the beginning, so let’s dive right in 🙂 Number 1 – Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen I started out with the Wink of Stella brushes and then discovered …


Spooky Halloween Art Journal Page

Spooky Halloween

Welcome back to my blog 🙂 The last week was a little hectic at work (yay!!! It was way to boring before that 😛 ), so I just had a little time to craft every evening. That was perfect for this page as several things needed to dry over night. It’s a little harder for me to describe how I created this spooky Halloween page. I tried a lot of things, sprayed some ink here and smeared some paint there and at the end, this is what it looked like. So, I’m sorry for the lack of instructions this time …


Stretch Your Dies And Add A Ghost

the card

Hello everyone! I’m up at the Kat Scrappiness blog with another Halloween card. To change things up a little, I used a non-Halloween sentiment to show you how you could stretch your dies too 🙂 I started by die-cutting the white background piece and some black card stock with Kat’s rope die and added the Lawn Fawn house border to the black piece. Now I die-cut a mask for the moon and adhered it to the white background piece. I blended Wilted Violet and Seedless Preserves Distress Ink back and forth till I had the coverage that I wanted. After …


Snarktoberfest #2 – Snarky Bookmarks Anyone?

Happy Snarktoberfest 😛 I can’t help it, but I need these little giggling moments. Humor is so important, as is not taking things too serious every now and then. Let’s embrace the humor, fun and snark in us and celebrate Snarktoberfest 😛 These easy and snarky bookmarks were created within a few minutes. I started by applying alcohol ink to the background paper. If you have never used alcohol inks before I highly recommend the starter kit that you can get at Amazon or any of the big box stores. It comes with three colors, blending solution and a metallic …
