Strawberry Jude Stamps with Distress Inks, blended with Clarity Stencil brushes

Hi and welcome back to another card using Strawberry Jude Stamps. This time I wanted to show you how you can use Christmas stamps all year long.

Video: Snarky Anti-Valentine’s Card with So Suzy Stamps

Anti Valentines Card with So Suzy Stamps, Distress Inks and Distress Oxide

Happy Valentine’s Day! Are you celebrating or do you think that it is one of those unnecessary days? Fair warning upfront: I’m not huge on Valentine’s day, so I decided to create a rather snarky anti-valentine’s card. I found a great sentiment at So Suzy Stamps that fit to my “love” for Valentine’s day, so I grabbed my masking paper and Distress Inks and started blending some ink. A video might be nicer for you to see the process, so I created one vs writing a long love letter πŸ˜‰ Again, I understand that not everyone shares my humor. I …

Distress Ink Blending with several Layers of Masking

I have to say good bye, good bye to a great team and an amazing experience. This is my last post for the Kat Scrappiness Design Team. The half year is already over. Sometimes it’s scary how fast time passes by. This card just had to be a thank you card for Kat and Deb. Thanks to them I was allowed to join a great team and share my love for katscrappiness.com with you. I thought that a little word game might be funny, so I used a scrappy cat stamp for the Kat Scrappiness thank you card πŸ˜› As …

Magical Fairy Cards lets you Believe in Yourself

Hi, I’m back for Kat Scrappiness and I have the cutest fairy stamp to share with you. At least I think it’s a fairy with her elegant posture and the puffy skirt. And I wanted to let her swing from something, so what is better than a sentiment die cut πŸ˜› I started by die cutting the base of the card, the sentiment and a doily as the ground for the fairy. I decided to die cut a second doily and colored them with Distress Inks. It creates the perfect magical background for the little fairy, don’t you think? Then …

Lovely, Amazing You – Notecards for Your Valentine

Lovely, Amazing You

Lovely, amazing you was the first sentiment that jumped at me when I looked at the Newton’s Nook “Happy Little Thoughts” stamp set. I love stamp sets like that. You can use them all year around and they fit to so many occasions, it’s not a fancy set or one that follows a specific trend. You can use it on any type of card with numerous techniques. Today I decided to create two little note cards using this stamp set and two more from Lawn Fawn. I started with blending three Distress Inks onto the card base. To get an …

My card features the house border stamp, the Clarity stencil brushes and Distress Inks in different blue shades. I started by masking off the top of my card and about …

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 …

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 πŸ™‚ 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: Snarky Halloween Card – The Mighty Witch Dog

The mighty Witch Dog

I found a very neat challenge blog and just had to join! It’s called the “Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers” and the challenge is “P for Pink Halloween”. First of all, I love being snarky and if you haven’t figured yet, I’m addicted to the snarky stamps from So Suzy Stamps, so this challenge was perfect. Second, I love Halloween and really like the idea of the combination with cancer awareness month. I’m trying to use stamps that I recently bought, but haven’t used as much. So I grabbed the Crazy Dogs stamp and thought that the dog would look really …
