A Fun Pop-Up Shaker Card!

 Hi friends!  Today, I am sharing a fun 3-D card that I created using some amazing Kat Scrappiness products! 

My crafty friends, LV Handcrafted and StamprGrl and I get together regularly to have some LIVE crafty shenanigans and our last Mystery Craft Along was a total blast!  Linh (LV Handcrafted) led us in creating a mystery fun-fold card and this was the result - a Tuxedo Pop Up Box Card.  We had no idea what we would be making, but by following her clues, we made this super cool card! 

I decorated my card using the Heartfelt Wishes Slimline Paper Pad.  I created several heart shakers using the Love In Stitches Shaker Card Dies and I used the same dies to cut a few plain hearts.  I filled the shaker elements with 6mm Metallic Red Solid Heart Sequins and Sparkling Clear Diamond Jewel Mix

I am so glad that Linh showed us how to create this fun card!  I had never even heard of this fun-fold before! 
Please make sure to head over to the shop and check out these fun products that I used!  They are PERFECT for all of the Valentines that you will be making! 
Thanks so much for spending a few minutes of your day with me!

For My Favorite Handyman!

 Happy Friday, friends!  Are masculine cards a struggle for you?  They sure are for me, and I never seem to have enough birthday cards for the guys in my life!  I created a super fun birthday card for my favorite handyman.  

I started by creating a background panel by alternating the Tool Washi Tape with strips of card stock that I die-cut.  I created my focal point by adding a large die-cut birthday sentiment to a piece of craft cardstock.  

Before adhering the panels to the card base, I added screw dies to each corner of the washi panel, and I used some toolbox and tool dies on the sentiment panel.  I then popped them up on the card base with foam dots.

You'd Butter Be Mine!

Hello, friends!  I am still trying to wrap my head around the fact that January is done and dusted!  I swear that as I get older, time speeds up. 

Today, I am sharing another card that I made using products from the Be My Valentine 2 Release from Kat Scrappiness.  I absolutely love this card!

When I saw the Butter Me Up Craft Dies and Butter Me Up Sentiment Stamps, I knew this card needed to come together!  It really was a ton of fun to create. 
I die-cut the toast from a kraft and ivory card stocks, and then I added some Distress Oxide ink to the edges to add some dimension.  I die-cut the pat of butter and also inked up its edges before assembling the toast.
I used the Stitched Scalloped Border Dies to die-cut a panel from one of the papers in the Be My Valentine 6 x 6 Paper Pad along with a piece of red card stock, and I layered them over a piece of suede card stock, before adhering them to the card base. 

I heat embossed the sentiment on a red banner and adhered it to the back of the piece of toast and then added it to the front of the card.  I added a bow made from hemp twine and finished the card with some Chocolate Jewels.
I hope that you love this card, too!  Make sure to check out this latest release in the shop!  You will not be disappointed! 

Thanks so much for spending a few minutes of your day with me!

Happy Birthday for Turner Syndrome Foundation Card Auction

Hi friends!  Today, I am sharing a fun birthday card that I created to donate to an Auction for the Turner Syndrome Foundation. Turner Syndrome is a genetic disorder where a female is born without the second X-chromosome, leaving her with lifelong medical issues.  You can read more about Turner Syndrome here

I colored up the adorable gnome image from Polkadoodles with Copic markers and cut it out.  I chose some coordinating digital papers from the shop and inked up the edges before layering them on my card base.  I created a cute little tag and added it to the card front.  I heat embossed the sentiment and created a little banner, which I adhered to the back of the gnome before adding him to the card front.  Lastly, I added some clear glass bubbles. 


I hope that you will join us for the auction over on Instagram!  The auction photos will go live on February 1 and it will close on February 28.  
If you love my card, please head over and bid on it! (I have also donated a second card, but you will have to find it!  I promise it is worth the hunt!)  This is such a worthy cause and all of the proceeds will go to The Turner Syndrome Foundation.  I am so honored to be able to participate!  
Thanks so much for stopping by!  
Xoxo, Kim

Have a Roarsome Birthday!

Hello friends!  I am  here to share a super fun birthday card that I created using the darling Dinosaur Pals stamps and dies from Prickley Pear Stamps & Dies.  I never seem to have enough birthday cards, and so I have been working to build up my stash.  I love that this stamp set is perfect for anyone! 

I started by coloring this little cutie and the greenery with Copic markers and using the coordinating dies to die-cut them. 

I kept my color palette very simple with greens and whites, and I love how the color really pops off of the front of the card.  I paired the dinosaur with some dies in my stash from Whimsy Stamps and an embossing folder from Altenew.  I wanted to add a lot of texture and dimension, and I think it came together perfectly!

I seriously love this card!  The Dinosaur Pals stamp set is full of cute dinosaurs and some great elements to build a scene.  Stay tuned, as I will be sharing another card that I made soon. 

Make sure to head over to the shop and check it out!  

Thanks so much for spending a few minutes with me!  I hope you have a great day!

A Unicorn Birthday Wish!

  Hello, crafty friends!  I never seem to have enough birthday cards in my stash, so I thought today would be a great day to build up some of my stash!  

I am really trying to work on some clean and simple cards, because they really allow the embellishments to shine. 

I started by wrapping the edges of a card stock panel with Glitter Blue Green Washi Tape and adhered it to a pink card base.  I dry embossed the main card panel with a balloon embossing folder from my stash.  I die-cut the sentiment in teal card stock and adhered it to the embossed panel before setting some of the darling Unicorn Brads in place. I adhered the panel to the card front and added the Rainbow Brad to my bow with my hot glue gun. 

This was such a fun card to create!  I hope you are inspired to pull out your favorite embellishments and get to work!

Do You Believe in Love at First Sight?

Hi friends!  I am back to share another card that I made for the new Kat Scrappiness Be My Valentine 2 Release!  This release is seriously chockers full of amazing products perfect for creating your Valentine's cards! 

I die-cut the A2 Postcard Die from dark red card stock and set it aside.   I stamped several of the images from the Be My Valentine 6 x 8 Stamp Set, colored them with Copic markers, and die-cut them using the coordinating Be My Valentine Dies
I heat embossed several of the sentiments from the Be My Valentine Stamp Set and I adhered the focal image, which I wrapped with some iridescent embroidery floss to the large square and added a bow to it, and then I adhered the stamp in the upper right corner.  I added some sparkle to the Be Mine image and when it was dry, I popped it up in on a foam dot.
Lastly, I stamped the squiggly lines over the stamp, and I added some Clear AB Glass Bubbles.  The glass bubbles are seriously my favorite embellishment!  They just look amazing on anything, and they come in a huge variety of colors.
I hope you love this card as much as I do!   Make sure to check out all the new goodies in the shop!  You will NOT be disappointed! 
Thanks so much for hanging out with me for a few minutes!  Have a great day!
Xoxo,  Kim
