Hello, I Really Miss You... A Stamp Me Some Love Project

Hi there friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here and I want to introduce you to a great company that I found, and have enjoyed a class I took, as well as the paper that I have from the "My Colors" heavyweight Cardstock line.


 

to make this project I used a Stencil/Stamp and Die set from GinaK Designs that was part of the Scrapbook & Cards Today event in March 2021.  I am not sure if this will be released to the public, or when, but I really loved it. If it does become available I will update this post with that information. I have linked everything else down below, including the online class I took from Stamp Me Some Love when I was introduced to this company. 

Here is my video for how I made this project, and below the video will be a quick step by step, unfortunately without photos, that is what the video is for. 



  1. Cut GinaK White cardstock 3.75" x 5"
  2. Cut Accent Opaque Cardstock for cardbase 4.25"x 11" score at 5.5"
  3. Cut "My Colors" Heavyweight Cardstock Black Suede 4" x 5.25"
  4. Die cut the Hello 4 times, using Ballerina Pink, Rose Chintz, Purple Hearts and Cyber Grape
  5. Die Cut the Hello Shadow using Black Suede
  6. using Bearly Art Liquid Glue layer the Hello together, I did Purple Hearts on the top, then Rose Chintz, Ballerina Pink and Purple Cyber Grape on the bottom I then set them aside to dry. 
  7. Using Stencil 1 I used Charming Pink and a blender brush to add three large flowers and partials of another and a small flower to my panel
  8. using stencil 2 I used Purple Delight to add the inside lines to the flowers
  9. using stencil 2 and Verdant I added the leaves to my large flowers
  10. using stencil 3 and purple delight I added the center to my flowers
  11. using stencil 3 and Cheerful (Yellow) I added the shading to my leaves, I do apologize for calling this color Daffodil in my video, it was hard to read the color on the lid. 
  12. I used my antistatic powder bag and then stamped the "I Really Miss You" sentiment with Versamark ink, sprinkled with Gold mBoss Embossing powder and then heat set that. I then cut to size. 
  13. I added the stacked Hello sentiment to my Black Suede shadow, using the Bearly Art Liquid Glue (I love that it dries clear). And then added it to my card panel. 
  14. I used Scrapbook Adhesives THIN foam squares to adhere my embossed sentiment.
  15. I found some sparkle jewels that matched the colors in my card and adhered them down
  16. Adhered all layers using the Bearly Art Glue and with that my project was complete.

Happy Birthday with The Makers Movement

 Hi there friends and fellow crafters, back again with another project using fun sets from The Makers Movement. These sets are just so fun that I keep playing. Keep reading and I'll tell you how I made this fun card. 

FIrst I cut my cardbase to 7" x 8.5" scored at 3.5 giving a cardbase of 3.5"8.5". I then took Rainbow Pattern washi tape and rain it down 2 sides of a panel of cardstock and ran it through my die cutter with the stitched scalloped die. I love the look that was left. I used the stitched panel die with a white panel of cardstock, and the arranged the balloon dies how I thought they would look best. I then cut them as well. 

using black cardstock I cut the balloon "strings" and then stamped/cut the bunny. He looks so happy to be joining the party again. I added some shading to his cute little body using Ohuhu alcohol markers and stamped the Happy Birthday Sentiment using Versafine Clair in Nocturne. 

The pattern paper behind my balloon cut outs is from MFT's Party Patterns 6x6 paper pad.



I hope you have enjoyed this project as much as I enjoyed making it.

Hope Your Day is Magical, with The Maker's Movement

Hey there friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here playing blog writing catch up. I've neglected it for a bit and it is really time to get back to it. Today I will start with this fun Birthday card from The Makers Movement. 
The outside:

The inside:

 

this card was so fun to create and here is how I did it and the products used:

First I cut my cardbase to 8"x9" and scored at 4". I then used the Scalloped edge slimline die to cut my top panel which I stamped and colored my main image, using images from You're My Hero and the new Have A Magical Day Stamp sets. I had so much fun turning the Hero's shorts into Pants so that he looked like a Magician, and then his rabbit coming out of the hat. 
This project was so fun, and I hope you enjoyed it!!!

Hello... A ScrappyTails New Release Sneak Peek

 Hey there friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here and wow did I have fun making this card. Unfortunately I made it while working so no video was made. I did use new products from ScrappyTails Crafts and stay tuned, I'll let you know how. 



  • First I cut a cardbase from Accent Opaque 120lb cardstock. My cardbase is 8.75" x 3.75".
  • I then used a panel of Grey Recollections 110lb cardstock and cut it out using the Slimline Brick Die.
  • I cut a panel 8.5" x 3.5" from Chinese Red Cardstock to lay underneath the brick cut to simulate the bricks while the grey was the grout.
  • The vines are from the Assorted Leaves Metal Die Set
  • I then cut the NEW Flying Butterflies Die Set. This die set is 4 pieces, 2 for each butterfly. I used Black Suede Cardstock to cut the top layer, and then added double side adhesive to my back panel which was 120lb cardstock and cut that out. 
  • I peeled the backing from the adhesive, which was on the front of the panel, adhered the black panel and then sprinkled glitter over the top, and burnished it in with a paintbrush. 
  • when putting this card together I used my GlueDots Tape Runner
  • The last thing I did was adhere the Hello sentiment, which was part of the Slimline Shadowbox Die Set.
I hope you have enjoyed my project today as much as I enjoyed sharing it with you. Be sure to visit Scrappy Tails Instagram and Youtube for more inspiration. This new release will be available March 12.

Happy Birthday, Hope You Have A Ball

 Hey there friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here with another fun project using a stamp and die set from The Makers Movement. I've been having so much fun with their sets and realized I had not finished putting this card together yet, so last night while in a crafty zoom with friends I was able to get it done. 

So, green is one of my two favorite colors and when I saw the Gumball Machine stamp/die set, I knew I had to have it, and it would be great to make to look like my own Gumball Machine that is in my Craftroom. 

To make this card I started out by cutting all the die pieces from Accent Opaque 110lb white cardstock. I thien used my Ohuhu Alcohol Markers GY7 and WG4 to color the pieces for the Green and Grey. 
From there I also cut from the double side Adhesive Foam and 2 panels of Acetate. I always make a sandwich of acetate/foam/acetate with my shaker bits inside of it, so that I know I get a good seal. With the Makers Movement Acetate there is a blue film on it so that it does not get messed up before use, I left the blue on one side of the back panel to give the illusion of the glass ball. 
I used Bearly Art Precision Craft Glue to adhere my pieces together, this is a white glue that dries clear and is quite strong, It does not take much to hold tight and so with that a little bit goes a long way, which wish my crafty budget that helps tremendously. 
I found a beautiful darker green cardstock in my stash for for the layering of not only the sentiment but also my card panel layer, and then the dotted paper layer is from an MFT 6x6 paper pad called Party Patterns.
The enamel dots are also from my stash and I believe they are from an Echo Park Collection, I'll see if I can find them and have them linked below.
