Artsystamper - Koi Pond Box Card

Hello, my friends!

It's time for a new Artsystamper post!
Today I am sharing a project that features:

Marble Magic Digital Paper Pack, and

Koi Pond Stamp Set.

I used one paper from the Marble Magic Collection,
and multiple pre-colored images from the Koi Pond Stamp Set,
to put together this fun little box card.



I created the box card base from cardstock, using the die.
I printed out the Marble Magic paper that looked most like water.
I die-cut that paper, and added it to the base.


I then went through the Koi Pond images and decided what I wanted to use.
I sized everything I wanted in Cricut Design Space,
and then used the print/cut feature.


Then I just had fun putting everything together.


I added the sentiment to the front flap.


Finally, I went through and added the Sparkle Marker to everything.
The glitter shows in some of the photos,
but it real life it's really sparkly and pretty! 



I also added the marbled paper to the back.
It's a pretty place to write a message.


The box card folds down to fit into an A2 envelope.


Here's one final look at the finished card:


Other Materials Used:
Papers: Recollections - Cardstock;
Die: Sizzix Bigz XL Box Card by Lori Whitlock;
Machine: Cricut Explore Air Machine;
Marker: Spectrum Noir Sparkle Marker.

Home Is Where...

Hello, my friends!

Today I have a another combination post share.
I've used some great products from ScraPerfect,
 along with chipboard pieces from Infinity Engraving

These two really are such a great pairing of products.
Here's my project:



I began by cutting my dark blue cardstock background. 
I used my ScraPerfect Perfect Crafting Pouch all over it
before stamping my house with embossing ink.
I then heat embossed it with white embossing powder.



Then I took the five wood keys, and the one little heart, from Inifinity Engraving.
Each of the keys were also heat embossed:
four in silver and one in red. 
Finally, I heat embossed the chipboard heart in red.


Then I used ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever
to adhere all the keys in place.
It works perfectly on even the skinniest little parts.


Then to finish it all off, I added the dark blue cardstock
onto a slightly larger white cardstock, tent fold card base.


 I'd like to thank my friend Annie for her input on this project!

Rinea Tutorial - Wonderful Life Card

Hello, my friends!

Today I have a fun tutorial for Rinea.
This month we are partnering with Imagine Crafts.

I'm going to show you how I made my card, 
using these fabulous foiled papers,
along with some StazOn Pigment Ink!

I recently picked up this fun background stamp,
and have been anxious to use it.
I thought the "messiness" of it worked well with the sentiment.

Here's my card:


Materials Used:
Tim Holtz Stamps - Background and Sentiment;
Stamp Positioning Tool of Choice;
White Cardstock Card Base.


1. Using the Shamrock Green Ink, Stamp the background design onto the Silver/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper. Set aside.
2. Using the Piano Black Ink, Stamp the sentiment onto the Silver/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper. Set side. 


3. Mat each stamped piece with the Ebony Starstruck Foiled Paper
4. Cover the white cardstock card base with Emerald Starstruck Foiled Paper.


5. Adhere the stamped piece to the front of the card.
6. Add the matted sentiment with foam tape, as shown in the photo.



Here's one last look at the finished card:

My Scrap Chick - Ice Cream Bar Card

Hello, my friends!

Welcome to a new DT post for My Scrap Chick!

Today I'm featuring the fun:

Ice Cream Bar Card

This cut file is perfect for these warm Summer days!
Here are the cards I made:


Aren't those fun? 
Creamsicles have always been my very favorite!
My brothers always liked the Revels, so I considered them "boy food"! lol 
My husband has taught me to enjoy them too! ;o)
Funny thing is...we've always called them Revels but they're actually Revellos.
Who knew?


So I added a fun stamp to the inside of each card.


I also added a little bit of white doodling to the outside.


This sentiment really does take me back...a FEW years! lol
Or was that just last week...? lol


Other Materials Used:
Stamps: Simon Says Stamp - Ice Cream;
Ink: Memento - Tuxedo Black;
Marker: Sharpie - White;
Ribbon: My Stash.

Files from My Scrap Chick:

Artsystamper - Fun Masculine Card

Hello, my friends!

It's time for a new Artsystamper post!
Today I am sharing a card that features:

Cruisin' Digital Stamp Set, and

Retro Fun Digital Paper Pack.

This combination makes a fun masculine card;
quick and easy to put together.

Here's my card:



I used the pre-colored image of the car,
and mounted it onto the fun retro paper with foam tape.
The sentiment was matted with black cardstock,
and also mounted with foam tape.



Isn't that fun? 
You can choose a car in another color, or color your own.
Then you can put it on a different background paper,
and you'll have an entirely different look!

Thanks so much for stopping in today!
I hope you find these images as inspiring as I do!
I look forward to sharing more with you!
