Video: So Much Sparkle for Santa and his Helper

sparkle for santa

Hello and welcome to a new card for Kat Scrappiness, using a lot of sparkle and a new to me stamp brand, Nordic Stamps. Santa and his reindeer are just so adorable that they needed a lot of sparkly goodness around them. To create all this sparkle for Santa and his little helper, I used the new Nuvo Glimmer Paste and Embossing Powder. I just love both of them, for several reasons. First, the glitter is not too much. It’s sparkly, but not blinding. Second, the glitter is containable. You don’t have a huge mess on your craft table afterwards, …

Where to go with the Christmas Tree?

collage

I’m joining the Sisterhood of the Snarky Stampers challenge again. This time it’s U is for UFO and I had the perfect “UFO” laying around! I stamped this cute little bug filled with a Christmas tree a while ago, colored it, cut it out (thanks for my Scan’n’Cut!) and then never used it on a card. I think I used Copic markers to color the Stamping Bella image. There were some bleeding issues, but I covered all of that with my white gel pen. I wanted to keep it simple, so I masked the bottom part of my card base …

How to create a Card Using a Coffee Mug – CYCI #142

fuzzy yeti

Welcome to a new Can You Case It challenge! Today we have a color challenge for you and when I saw the winter mugs from Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, I knew that I had to use it for this challenge. I started by taking the coffee mug apart and removing the sides. Then I used a stitched rectangle die to create a square shape. Even though the logo would look interesting I decided to remove it. A simple circle die is perfect to create a window. You could keep the logo, if you would want to create a gift …

Craftstorefinder.com – A New Website to Find Local Craft Stores

craftstorefinder

Hi and welcome 🙂 Today I wanted to share a new project with you, my new website www.craftstorefinder.com As you might know, I started crafting about two years ago. One of the first things I did was “googling” for craft stores in my area, but I had a hard time finding them. Most of the time, the only thing I was able to find, was a note of them closing down. Even after searching through Facebook groups and crafty forums, I still haven’t found a useful site that contains a listing of craft stores in a readable and searchable format. …

close up 1

Hello there, welcome to another blog post for So Suzy Stamps. This is the last one for 2016… this year was over fast, sigh. Because Christmas is approaching rather fast, I wanted to prepare a cute Christmas card for you and So Suzy’s ornament stamps are perfect for that! I started by die cutting a piece of white card stock with a square, stitched die. Then I stamped the three ornaments using the Simply Sinful ink, also from So Suzy Stamps. Now I stamped a second time with Versamark ink, so I was able to heat emboss it with the …
