Trick or Treat with the Makers Movement

 Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here and wow am I having fun this month pairing Halloween designed pattern paper  with this Trick or Treat Shaker Stamp and Die set from The Maker's Movement. 


I love making shaker cards, and this set made me so happy as it had 2 sets of eyes, and 2 mouths so I could fit 2 fun jack-o-lanterns on one slimline card. 

How I made this card.
  • Cut the dies apart from each other. I actually left the faces together, so it was only the 2 frames which were single pieces, this way I would not loose the little pieces. I do put them in a small zip bag for storage. 
  • Using the double cut frame die, I cut the foam as well as 2 Jack-o-lantern top frames from pattern paper.
  • Using the solid frame die, I cut back panels from both pattern paper and acetate for the Jack-o-lanterns. 
  • Using black card-stock I cut the faces for both jack-o-lanterns and went through my google eyes to find the ones I wanted to use. 
  • I assembled the Jack-o-lanterns and added the Candy Corn Shaker Sprinkles to each and sealed them with the acetate. 
  • I used Nuvo liquid glue which dries clear to add the top frame to each Jack-o-lantern. 


  • Using some Distress oxides I layered over and over Squeezed Lemonade, Wilted Violet and Black Soot to make the sentiment panel.
  • Once the panel was dry I used my embossing bag to remove static, stamped the Trick or Treat sentiment with VersaMark ink and sprinkled on Whispers Opaque Orange Embossing Powder and set it with my heat tool. 
  • Back to the die cutter, I cut the panel of purple/white chevron pattern paper from an older paper studio paper pad. This is a 6" x 12" paper pad called The Basics No. 2, and I searched but could not find a link for it. 
  • This panel was attached to my cardbase which is 8.5" x 3.75". To make this I cut a panel of cardstock 8.5" x 7.5" and scored at 3.75'. For this I used an EZ Tape Runner.
  • I die cut the candy pieces from white cardstock and stamped them with Twisted Citron, Wilted Violet and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxides. These pieces were attached using liquid glue.

I hope you have enjoyed this fun shaker card as much as I enjoyed making it.

Beach Vibes with The Makers Movement



Hi there friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here again with this fun project using the Beach Vibes Stamp set from The Makers Movement


I had so much fun making this beach filled fun card using The Makers Movement Beach Vibes Stamp Set

To make this card I used my stamp platform and wreath builder stencil. 
  1. I stamped out 4 sets of the flip flops and cut them out with the coordinating die set, along with the pail/shovel and beach ball. 
  2. I then put the flip flop stamp on the stamp platform and using the stencil for positioning I stamped out the 8 sets of flip flops to make up the wreath. 
  3. Using Ohuhu Alcohol Markers I colored the flip flops in rainbow pattern, along with the beach ball and bucket of sand and shovel. 
  4. Using foam tape I popped up the 4 flip flops I cut separately and put them on the coordinating colors to add some dimension. 
  5. My card base is 4.25"x 5.5" top folding. The I cut a panel of pattern paper 4"x 5.25" and layered it on a black layer of cardstock and adhered these straight to the card base. 
  6. The stamped panel is 3.75"x3.75" layered on a black panel slightly larger and adhered with foam tape. 
  7. The Beach Vibes sentiment and all flip flops are stamped using VersaFine Clair in Nocturne ink. 
I hope you have enjoyed this fun card as much as I enjoyed making it.

Joy Clair Designs New Release Blog Hop

Greetings friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here with the new release Blog Hop for Joy Clair Designs. Today I am featuring the new digital stamp set Pencil Me.




I had so much fun with this set, and here is how I made it. 
  1. Using Photoshop I separated the images and sentiments into their own files. 
  2. I then opened a new canvas and added the pencil along with sentiments in the arrangement I wanted.
  3. The page was printed using my Epson Color Printer on Hammer-mill 80 lb Premium Color Copy Cover
  4. I trimmed the panel down to a more manageable size, and used my Embossed Edge Slimline Die to cut that panel with my Vagabond 2.
  5. Using Ohuhu Alcohol Markers I colored in the pencils in Rainbow order. 
  6. I layered up the panels on black Recollections 65 lb cardstock and then a Rainbow Stripe Paper Studio Cardstock, and all was adhered to a 6.5" x 8" panel scored at 3.25" to make the card base cut from Recollections 110 lb cardstock and all adhered using a tape runner.

The Sea Is Calling


Hi there friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here and after celebrating Christmas in July for the past week, I'm going back to my happy place, Under The Sea!!! This is a 3 day Hashtag Driven Hop that I am participating in with friends from the Handmade Happiness Facebook Group. We will have different projects each day, with a new Hashtag each day as well. Today's hashtag for the hop is #THURSDAYUNDERTHESEA
 Some will be doing videos, some Instagram or Blog only. I will be posting on Blog and Instagram. And now for my project.

Today I am using this adorable stamp set from The Maker's Movement. The set is called Beach Vibes, and I'm having fun it.
Beach Vibes

This was probably the easiest card I have made in a long time. And here is how it was done
  1. First I knew I had this pretty paper Iridescent Shimmer Paper in my scrap box, and had to find it. 
  2. I added double side adhesive to the back of the paper, first to make it a little stiffer to work with, and second because i knew I was going to adhere it to a black panel.
  3. The panel was cut to 3.75" x 5" and adhered to the black panel which is 4" x 5.25". 
  4. These panels were then adhered using tape runner, to a 4.25" x 5.5" card base. I use Recollection 110 lb Cardstock for my bases currently, and am quite happy with it.
  5. Using a stamp platform, I stamped the sentiment at the top of my panel using VersaFine Clair in Nocturne. 
  6. I used an acrylic block to stamp the 3 cute fish and bubbles also using the VersaFine Clair in Nocturne. 
  7. After allowing the ink to dry, I used Nuvo Orange Marmalade Jewel Drops to add color to the fish, and Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Drops  to the bubbles. 
  8. After allowing to dry for a few hours my photos were taken and project was complete. 
Please stop over at The Makers Movement where there is a buy 2 Get 1 Free sale going on until July 31.

Today's hashtag for the hop is #THURSDAYUNDERTHESEA

Same Set Syndrome Blog Hop with Not 2 Shabby Shop


Greetings friends and fellow crafters, today along with some of my crafty friends in the Same Set Syndrome event, are playing with stamp sets from Not 2 Shabby Shop. So hop along and see the fun we are having.

For my project I used the Summer Times Buddy Stamp Set, along with a stencil from my stash.

These are the steps I used to make this card...

  1. I cut my black and scalloped edge layers with dies from KatScrappiness
  2. For the Scalloped layer, I used post it tape to mask off the edges so my ink blending would stay within the stitched border.
  3. Using Blueprint Sketch and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide inks I inked up this panel
  4. Position a Tim Holtz Splash Stencil over the panel and Blend in Mermaid Lagoon.
  5. Spritz this panel with Sheer Shimmer Spritz and set aside to dry. 
  6. Moving over to the stamp set, I stamped out the Kitty, Puppy, Castle, Sun and Starfish using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and  cut the images with my Scan N Cut. 
  7. The images were colored using Ohuhu Alcohol Markers.
  8. All images except the Castle were adhered using Clear Foam Squares, they are really thin and give just enough of a lift to slightly add dimension. This is how the small shadow was achieved to the lower side of the images.
  9. The Castle was adhered using a tape runner with only the flag adhered with the clear foam square.  
I did purposely leave the flag white... I am surrendering... I want to go to the water park and float all day in the Lazy River, however with the C19, that isn't happening...

SO, hop on along and visit Maritza over on Instagram... HERE

Christmas in July with Joy Clair Designs




Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here with Joy Clair Designs and two fun Christmas Tags I made using Dog Gone Christmas Stamp Set. You can use this link to see the other Designers/Ambassador's creations
You can use code TEAMTINY20 for a 20% discount at the Joy Clair Store, discount excludes Last Call, Dies and Stencils. 

I had so much fun making these tags and they while so cute were really not that hard... here is a step by step how I made them...
  1. Figure out which stamp set I wanted to use... Dog Gone Christmas
  2. Grab 2 ready made tags out of my stash that fit the pups and sentiments
  3. Using my stamp platform and Memento Tuxedo Black ink stamped out the pups on the tags
  4. Stamped out the same pups on masking paper
  5. Fuzzy cut the masking paper and place over the pups on their tags
  6. Also using Memento Tuxedo Black stamp the Antlers and Santa Caps
  7. Using Peacock Feathers and Lucky Clover Distress Oxides on the ShiTzu pup I ink blended the sky and grass
  8. Using Broken China and Lucky Clover with the Hound Dog ink blend the sky and grass.
  9. Using VersaFine Clair in Nocturne stamp the sentiments. For the ShiTzu I did some stamp surgery and cut the sentiment in two pieces so would fit. 
  10. Using Ohuhu Alcohol Markers I colored in the images on the tags.
  11. Deciding I was not quite finished, I added some musical notes from the stamp set to the Hound Dog Tag.
  12. Using Simply White Nuvo Crystal Drops I added the puff ball to the stocking cap. 
  13. While looking at the ShiTzu pup I felt he needed something else, so stamped and fuzzy cut the bone with a bow and colored them up, this was added to the tag using foam dimensional. 
Thanks for stopping by and seeing my tags, I really love these and I know exactly who will be receiving them this year.
