Embossing Folder Techniques and Save the Crafty You Tuber Video Hop

Hello everyone,

I am so excited to be part of the Save the Crafty YouTuber Video Hop again, which was put together by the very talented Justine Hovey to discover and celebrate crafters of cardmaking video tutorials!

For my part in this hop, I wanted to share with you a few ways to create backgrounds using embossing folders. I made several examples by applying a variety of techniques to create my projects and today’s focus is fun ways to create with embossing folders.

MFT BB Adorable Elephants stamp colored with Copic Markers and combined with Garlands Embossing Folder by Carabelle Studios.

To start my cards, I first cut down several pieces of Neenah 110lb. white cardstock to A2 sized panels. This is the cardstock thickness I found embossed with the best results.
For the first card, I simply took one of the panels and embossed it with Garlands Embossing Folder by Carabelle Studio. To complete this card, I added one image of MFT’s BB Adorable Elephants, a pink heart die-cut with an Outside In Stitched Heart die by Lawn Fawn and the sentiment white heat embossed onto black cardstock.

Copic Color Combination: Elephant C9, C7, C5, C3, C1, C1, R22, R20 Flower Y15, Y11, R22, R20

MFT BB Mermazing stamp colored with Copic Markers and combined with Mermaid Scales Embossing Folder by Echo Park.

For the second card, I focused on adding color to the embossed background by ink blending with a very light hand Distress Oxide ink in Mermaid Lagoon. The embossing folder I choose for this card perfectly complemented the image of this adorable mermaid by MFT. I added a rectangle frame die cut from red cardstock and completed the card with a sentiment which I white heat embossed on a piece of black cardstock.

Copic Color Combination: Hair E50, E53, E43, E57 Skin E13, E11, E21, E00, E000, R20 Tail BG49, BG43, BG53M BG10, BG000
Sparkling details added with White Gelly Roll Pen

Honey Bee Little Ladies stamp colored with Copic Markers and combed with Large Circles Embossing Folder by Carabelle Studios.

For the third card, I applied ink directly to the raised edges of the embossing then placed my white cardstock very carefully and ran it through my Big Shot. The end result is ink impressed into the cardstock for a debossed look.  For this card, I added an action wobbler to the Little Ladies image by Honey Bee Stamps.

Copic Color Combination: Ladybug N9, N7, N5, N3, N1, R29, R27, R24, R22

MFT Too Cute stamp colored with Copic Markers and combined with Mermaid Bubbles Embossing Folder by Echo Park.

For this card, I tried a variation of the above technique but this time after embossing the white panel, I very lightly applied Versamark ink on the embossed edges then applied a very sparkly gold embossing powder.  I did take a thin paintbrush and wipe off any clumps of embossing powder that was in the open spaces before heat setting it. The images I choose for this background is MFT’s Too Cute.

MFT BB Magical Dragons stamp colored with Copic Markers and combined with Textured Impressions Swirls Embossing Folder by Sizzix.

And finally, for the last card, I think my most favorite, I embossed a piece of black 110 lb. cardstock then added Perfect Pearls to the raised embossed edges. In order for the powder to stick, I applied Versamark ink this time with a brayer and found that this was easier and less messy than the technique for the previous card. To finish this card, I simply added the Dragon by MFT and stamped the sentiment onto a Copic colored piece of cardstock.

In the video tutorial below, I’ll walk you through some techniques I used for creating the backgrounds and finishing the cards.

Scrapping For Less May 2019 Card Kit | Myths and Legends | 4 Cards from 1 Kit

Hello everyone,

I’m so excited to be a guest designer for this month’s kit for Scrapping For Less. Today, I’m sharing the four cards I made using the Flavor of the Month May Card Kit. This month’s kit is all about Myths and Legends.

I’ve been a long-time fan of the Scrapping For Less Card Kits because the value of their kits far supersedes their price and you always get enough of a variety within each collection but still within the theme.

Loch Ness Monster by Kindred Stamps Copic colored and combined with paper by Scrapping For Less.
Fairies by Avery Elle Stamps Copic colored and combined with Fairy's Garden papers by Scrapping For Less.

 Let’s get on to some crafty goodness with these wonderful creatures: Our Myths and Legends blog hop begins at the Scrapping for Less blog. There, you will find the complete lineup. AND…make sure you enter the Rafflecopter. You can find the new kit for May on the Subscription page as well as great photographs of the contents of the kit. Make sure to grab yours fast as it may sell out quickly! Thanks for joining us today! 
Happy Crafting! P.S. for some fun facts on the elements and origins of the myths and legends of this month’s kit head to the Scrapping for Less blog for some little tidbits about our legendary elements.
The next person on the blog hop is listed at the end of the post.

Card 1 – Collection One – Sketch 1

For the first card, I colored the adorable Nessie from Kindred Stamps with Copic markers and added the image to the patterned paper with waves. The only thing left to do to complete this card was to add the sentiment and a few sequences from the collection.

Card 2 – Collection Two – Sketch 3

I simply adore this image of the Pegasus by Sunny Studio Stamps. I used the patterned paper from this collection and followed sketch three to create the background. After Copic coloring the image, I added it to a stenciled sky background to complete this card.

Card 3 – Collection Three – Sketch 2

The feel of this collection reminded me of garden fairies and I colored the images of the two fairies to reflect the softness of the patterned paper.  Next, I chose several pieces of patterned paper from this collection and added a little bit of the Sour Apple cardstock for contrast.

Dress: R85, R83, R81 Wings: YG03, G40

Card 4 – Collection Four – Sketch 4

And finally, for the last card which happens to be my favorite from the kit, I colored the adorable gnomes with Copic markers to reflect the bold patterned paper. I added a piece of vellum to the background to soften the brightness so that my little gnomes are still at the center of the card.

Gnome by Stamping Bella Copic colored and combined with Gnomie Home paper by Scrapping For Less.

Scrapping For Less April 2019 Card Kit | Spring Critters | 4 Cards from 1 kit

Hello everyone, today I’m sharing the four cards I made using the Scrapping For Less: April Flavor of the Month Card Kit. This month’s kit was full of cute critters and spring themed papers and embellishments just in time for this gorgeous weather.

Card 1 – Collection One – Sketch 4

For my first card, I created a mini scene using Just Bee-cause stamp set by Sunny Studio Stamps. I used my Copic markers to color the images after I free-hand drew the tree branch. The patterned papers fit perfectly with the spring theme to complete this card.

For the second card, I used the gorgeous Journey of the Heart patterned papers by Gina K Designs and Let Things Grow stamp set by Pink Fresh Studios to create this elegant card.

Card 3 – Collection Three – Sketch 2

This happens to be my most favorite collection and card from this kit. I colored all of the images using my Copic markers and arranged them on top of some of the most adorable paper in this kit. To finish this card, I added glitter over all of the images.

Toadally Terrific stamp by Scrapping For Less colored with Copic markers and combined with Spring Fever paper by Scrapping For Less.

And finally, for the last card, I tried my hand at another shaker card. I’m still learning how to create a shaker card without making a goof up! One day, but not today.

Lawn Fawn Hedgehugs and Slide on Over Die | Hedgehog Hollow Video Hop

Hi everyone,

I’m so excited to be participating in the Hedgehog Hollow Hop, A Craft Collab’s event on YouTube. This is a video hop with many crafters creating projects with a hedgehog theme.

Did I mention that there are prizes??? Yep, there are two prizes sponsored by Alexandra Stapleton-Smith with the Hedgehog Hollow for two lucky commentators. All of the information on participating is linked in my video on my YouTube Channel (linked below !)

A spring inspired card created with Lawn Fawn Hedgehugs Stamp and Slide on Over Dies, colored with Copic markers and set against a mini forest scene.

For my card today, I used several products from Lawn Fawn but the main focus of this card is the slider mechanism as well as the adorable hedgehogs.

I started my card by stamping all of the images onto Neenah Solar White 80lb. cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and used my Copic markers to color all of the images in.

Next, I used the coordinating dies (if I had them) or my ScanNCut to cut out all of the images. I probably went a little overzealous on the number of images I stamped and colored, but I’d rather have a choice of too much than not enough.

Copic Color Combination

Hedgehogs: E44, E43, E40, E29, E27, E25, E23, E93, R22
Bee: Y17, Y15, Y13, R22, B00, BG000, BG0000
Butterflies: (Purple) V17, V15, V12 (Teal) BG49, BG45, BG53
N5, N3, N1, N0, Blender
Ladybug: R27, R24, R22, C7, C5, C3
Birds: R22, R21, R20, YR18, YR15

For the background, I’ve used several pieces of patterned paper from the Spring Fling Collection paper by Lawn Fawn and die cuts to create a mini forest-scene.

 

And finally, to create the slider in the card, I used a die by Lawn Fawn that cuts out the perfect slider channel for a fun interactive element.  All there was left to do was to adhere the images, add a sentiment and a white frame around the entire card for a finished look.

Pretty Pink Posh | Clean and Simple Strip Inlay Cards |

Hello everyone,

Today’s cards are all about clean and simple card designs. I’m incorporating a strip of ink blended inlaid cardstock in the cards today for a bit of color and a few adorable images to complete these cards.

Pretty Pink Posh Stamps with an ink blended inlaid strip on a clean and simple card design.

I die cut three panels of 110 lb. cardstock using a large stitched rectangle die and strips of Bristol smooth cardstock that I will use to ink blend some Distress Oxide inks.

Pretty Pink Posh Wild Roses stamp combined with Distress Oxides Squeezed Lemonade and Wild Honey inlaid strip on a clean and simple card design.

For the first card, I cut a vertical section out of the panel to create the space for a strip of cardstock to inlay. For this card, I combined Squeezed Lemonade and Wild Honey Distress Oxide inks and blended the inks on the Bristol smooth cardstock strip.

After coloring my images with Copic markers, I used the coordinating dies to die cut the images out. I arranged the flower images in the bottom left- hand corner and added the sentiment to complete this card.

Copic Color Combination

Flowers: RV04, RV02, RV00, RV0000, Y19, Y11, Y00
Leaves: G19, G17, YG07, YG05, YG03, YG01

The second card features the adorable little koala bears, which I colored with my Copic markers and used my ScanNCut to cut the image out.

The diagonal inlay strip for this card was created by ink blending Fossilized Amber, Carved Pumpkin and a little bit of Vintage Photo on the edges.

Scrapping For Less: FOTM March 2019 Card Kit | Let’s Celebrate | 4 Cards from 1 Kit

Hello everyone,

Today I’m sharing the four cards I made using the Scrapping For Less: March Flavor of the Month Card Kit. I really enjoyed the versatility of this kit and the contents it provided to make four very different celebratory cards.

Scrapping For Less: Flavor of the Month March Card Kit

Card 1 – Collection One – Sketch 3

For my first card, I used the ice cream image by Scrapping For Less. I used my Copic markers to color the image and my Scan N Cut Machine to cut the image out leaving a small white border.

Scrapping For Less March 2019 Flavor of the Month Card Kit Let’s Celebrate. Collection one: Ice Cream Stamp and Ice Cream Celebrations patterned paper by Scrapping For Less.

Card 2 – Collection Two – Sketch 2

For the second card, I decided to make a shaker card. Now shaker cards are not my strong suit but I think I managed to make a decent shaker using the papers and ephemera by Scrapping For Less.

Card 3 – Collection Three – Sketch 4

This was a very special card to make for it has an intended recipient. I loosely followed sketch number 4 for this card and created half ovals instead of diamond-shaped elements. I colored the baby images by Your Next Stamp with Copic markers and cut them out using my Scan N Cut machine.

Card 4 – Collection Four – Sketch 2

And finally, for the last card, I used the gold speckled acetate on top of the cut apart provided in my collection to create an elegant and sweet card.

Dry Embossing with Cover Dies | Pink and Main Stamps

Hello everyone,

Today I’m sharing a few cards I made by dry embossing with cover dies and adding one image as the focal point of the card.

For the first card, I used a Waffle Flower Sun Sunshine Panel and dry embossed it onto a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock.

Waffle Flower Crafts Sun Shine Panel die dry embossed on cardstock combined with Pink and Main Koalaty Friends Stamp handmade card.

I combined the brightly ink blended sun panel with an adorable platypus image from Koalaty Friend by Pink and Main stamps. And embellished the card with Kiss Me Clay Hearts by Honey Bee Stamps.

Copic combination:

Platypus: E49, E47, E44, E43
W9, W7, W5

The second card features Stargazer Backdrop die by Heffy Doodle and the Magical Unicorns image by Pink and Main.

For a little extra sparkle on this card, I added a sparkling embossing powder to the starts before ink blending with Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink.

Copic combination:

Unicorn: W00, W1, W2
Mane: V17, V15, V12
Cheeks: R30

And finally for the last example, I first ink smooshed several shades of blue Distress Oxide ink onto a piece of watercolor paper. After the panel was completely dry, I dry embossed the panel with Lawn Fawn’s Rainy Backdrop. To define the embossed rain drops, I added glitter ink to each rain drop and when dry, sparkled and shined over the entire panel.

The image I used for this card is by Pink and Main called Rain Frogs, which I Copic colored. I also added a couple of swirly clouds by Heffy Doodle to finish off this card.

Scrapping For Less: FOTM February 2019 Card Kit | Whip it Up | 4 Cards from 1 Kit

Hello everyone,

Today I’m sharing the four cards I made using the Scrapping For Less: February Flavor of the Month Card Kit. This kit was all about baking sweets and love.

Card 1 – Collection One – Sketch 1

For my first card, I used the adorable Baking Marci stamp from La La Land Crafts as the main focal point image. After stamping her on Neenah 80lb. with Memento Tuxedo ink, I used my Copic markers to color up the image and a stitched rectangle die to cut out the panel.

Shoes: E30, E31, E33, E35
Bowl: C7, C5, C3, C1

Card 2 – Collection Two – Sketch 2

For the second card, I followed sketch two and used Baking Luka stamp from La La Land Crafts. After coloring the image with my Copic markers, I die cut the panel using a stitched rectangle die. I decided to give the Life Changing Blender Brushes by Picket Fence a try and was so amazingly impressed at the way they add ink onto cardstock. This cardstock is not the most ideal paper for ink blending but the brush blended the ink so smoothly, it literally went on like butter.

Tray: C7, C5, C3
Cookies: E31, E33

Card 3 – Collection Three – Sketch 3

For this card, I wanted to create a single layer stamped image of three pies with the stamp in this collection. I made a quick mask using post-it full adhesive notes and added it over the stamped pie in the foreground to create the illusion of 3-dimensional pies.

Craftin Desert Diva | Pot of Gold | Altering image stamps | St. Patrick’s Day Card

Hello everyone,

Today I am sharing an adorable St. Patrick’s Day inspired card featuring Craftin Desert Diva’s Pot of Gold stamp set.

Craftin Desert Diva Pot of Gold stamp set colored with Copic markers set against a cloud background made by ink blending with Distress Oxide inks in Mowed Lawn and Lucky Clover, St. Patricks’ Day card.

First, I stamped out my images and slightly altered the Troll Girl’s rainbow. I wanted to create the illusion that she was sliding down the rainbow from above, but the original image ended the Rainbow at a point and that was what I wanted to change.

Using my Misti stamping tool to help me, I inked up the image and simply wiped off the lines I wanted to change. I did stamp the image a couple of times, which was easy because of the Misti stamping tool.

Then I used an E.K. Tools Journaling Pen to simply draw in the lines I envisioned for the rainbow. After Copic coloring all of the images, I used my ScanNCut to die cut all of the images.

Craftin Desert Diva Pot of Gold stamp set colored with Copic markers set against a cloud background made by ink blending with Distress Oxide inks in Mowed Lawn and Lucky Clover, St. Patricks’ Day card.

Copic color combinations

Skin: E11, E21, E00, E000, R20, E04
Hair: E18, E09, YR07, YR04
Clothes: G29, YG17, YG13, YG11
Bird: E39, E37, E35, E53, E50
Pot: N5, N3, N1
Coins: Y15, Y13
Shoes: N3, N1
Rainbow: R29, R27, R24, Y17, Y13, Y11, G29, G24, B18, B16

Craftin Desert Diva Pot of Gold stamp set colored with Copic markers set against a cloud background made by ink blending with Distress Oxide inks in Mowed Lawn and Lucky Clover, St. Patricks’ Day card.

Working on the background, I used a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock to ink blend and create green clouds with an MFT Stencil and Distress Oxide inks in Mowed Lawn and Lucky Clover.

To finish my card, I popped up the focal point images and the sentiment on fun foam and added a frame die cut out of white cardstock using a Craftin’ Desert Diva’s Inside Scalloped Rectangle Dies.

Check out the video below for all of the details on creating this card.

That’s all for me today, thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

Scrapping For Less: FOTM January 2019 Card Kit | Perk Up and Start the New Year | 4 Cards from 1 Kit

Hello everyone,

Today I’m sharing the four cards I made using the Scrapping For Less: January Flavor of the Month Card Kit. The January kit is called “Perk Up and Start the New Year” and is all coffee themed. There are still some kits available for purchase here.

Card 1 – Collection One – Sketch 1

For my first card, I used the coffee cup and the humming bird from the collection one stamp set. I used my Copic markers to color up both of the images, leaving the cup image on the circle panel and fussy cutting the humming bird.

Color combinations: Cup B16, B14, B12, B00 and Coffee E00, E11, E13, E18

Card 2 – Collection Two – Sketch 3

For the second card, I followed sketch three to create a paper layered designs for little Newton. This happens to be my most favorite card because I just adorable the color combination and of course the image of Newton.

Color combinations: Donut E49, E47, E44, RV34, RV11 Newton E44, E43, E42, E41

Card 3 – Collection Three – Sketch 4

For this card, I tried my hand at creating double shaker elements and was besieged with a number of issues along the way, hence why shaker cards are not my strong suit. In the end, the card does look adorable with the shaker elements and I love it.

Color combination: Skin: E00, E11, E13, R20 Hair E47, E44, E43, E42 Clothes BG45, BG53, E53, E50, E13, E18 Coffee E50, E53, E18, E15

Card 4 – Collection Four – Sketch 2

And finally, for the last card I used my Copic markers to color up Anya in semi neutral tones. I wanted her to stand out against some of the business of the patterned paper behind her.

Color combinations: Skin E04, E21, E13, E11, E00, E000, R22, R20 Hair E29, E18, E15, E13, E11 Clothes RV14, RV13, EV11, N5, N3, N1, N0 Purse G99, G94, G24 Coffee E13, E11, E00, E29, E27, E25, E21
