Hey, Crafty Friends!  Valentine's Day is right around the corner and the perfect time for creating treats for those I love and care about.
These sweet treat bags are great for all your crafty friends!  Each one was made by cutting a design from the new Sweet As Sugar paper pad using the Scalloped Bag & Tags Creator die.  All images are from one of my favorite sets from the January release:  Crafty Critters!
For the first two, I cut Rose and Salsa cardstock respectively using the Love Note dies as a backdrop for the adorable critters. The last treat bag has an acetate window.  I cut Dark Roast cardstock with the Scalloped Bag & Tag Creator dies for the back piece so the color shows through and on the front, used the square die to make the window.
I could fill these cute bags with candy treats, but since these are for my crafty friends, I'll fill them with a few crafty items such as a glue pen, paint or blending brush, scissors...maybe some washi tape!  What would you fill them with?

HUGS & KISSES

Hello stampers, welcome back to our blog! Olga Moss is here. Today I am sharing a one layer butterfly wreathes card with the help of stamps and markers! That is all. 

The stamp set I have today is from our New January Release. I am using Butterfly Wreath – this fabulous stamp set is perfect for Spring and Summer cards. It also have a lot of butterflies and great for coloring, too.
This card started just like any other – I stamped wreathes in black ink on Premier Polar White Cardstock.  Next, with the help of my alcohol markers (I can't name a combo because I always mix colors of different brands) I quickly colored these wreathes. 
But I wanted to highlight the brightness of the wreaths more, so I colored over the remaining space using a dark brown marker. I like this technique very much because even just coloring the background with a marker, we already give it a texture. So fast but so interesting! 
I adhered this background to A2 white card base. To make a sentiment I went with a new All the Love set. The “Hugs & Kisses” sentiment was white heat embossed on a Buttercup Cardstock and die cut with All the Love Confetti CutsTo decorate the card I used crystals.  
I love it. I hope you do too.

SO CHEERFUL

 Hello 'Fetti Fans!  It's Amy Tsuruta here with a Cheerful Pals duo:


My actual card design was set because I had several of those RC Cardstock strips from my earlier OMG project.  The colors are:


I had enough of the strips to whip up 2 cards.  They're a bit skinnier than an A2 at 3.5 x 5 inches.

The first card uses the Kind is Cool Owl.  I also added that oh so sweet mouse!


The stars are from the Cheerful Pals confetti cuts set.  


Next up is the sweet cheerleader.  Everyone needs to have a cheerleader in life at some point.  I love that banner sign, You Be You.


I love how cheery these turned out.  Perfect for quick happy mail.  


Happy Friday Eve!

THANK YOU

Hello Fetti Fans! Ali here with a pretty Watercolour lift technique card which I was inspired, originally some time ago, to try after watching Jennifer McGuire's Youtube Channel here. I thought it would look wonderful using the very pretty Peony stamp set and I do love the result!  This is such a simple but pretty effect - the tone-on-tone colouring gives such a beautiful look - it's hard to believe it's achieved with just ink and water! It looks good in virtually any colour and I prefer using Distress Oxide inks with this technique as they react with water so well. The images in the Peony set have enough detail as well as enough colouring area to make this technique really effective!

To begin, I created the background by covering a piece of watercolour paper with my anti-static pad. I then stamped the images and sentiments on the card with Versamark ink and white embossed them. Once dry, I used my brush to apply the Wilted Violet and Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide Inks over the embossing and when this was complete, I used a paper towel to clean the ink from the embossed outlines.  

I used a brush and plain water to 'colour' inside the images and a paper towel to 'dab' off the water - this removes the ink from that area creating a lighter tone. To finish, I tapped water droplets from the brush over the piece. 

Such a pretty effect and so satisfying when you see the result! 
Ali xx

KILLIN' IT

Hey, Fetti Fans, it's Lisa Henke and one of my favorite things when crafting is to combine sets. Reverse Coneftti makes it easy and I think the new Cheerful Pals and OMG were made for each other. I was dying to pair the two together, so I did on this tag.


I started by coloring up the sweet little cheer ellie from Cheerful Pals with copics and added the stars and sweet little mouse.I cut them out with the coordinating Cheerful Pals Confetti Cuts

 I then cut a strip of Sweet Stripes paper to use as a belly band for the candy bar. I love using pattern paper to dress up a gifty. I cut it to 4.25 x 6 inches and then wrapped it around the candy bar, scoring it at where the edges are (no measuring required, you'll see where the score marks go after you fold the paper around the candy bar) adhering it together with some Score-tape. I then topping it off with a dressed up tag. 



The tag I used is Stitched Hexagon Tag Confetti Cut. I cut it out with some Mist card stock and then got busy stamping the OMG stamp set. I stamped the solid OMG in Baby Blue ink and then used the Misti to line up the outline of the letters with Midnight ink. I used the OMG Confetti Cuts to cut out each of the letters. I love how it's all one die, but it cuts out the individual letters. 


I finished off the sentiment with the "you are killin' it" sentiment strip. I stamped that in Navy ink along the bottom of the tag.  I used foam dots to pop up the images on the tag and added a ribbon-twine-button embellie. The band simply slides on and off the candy bar. 


Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you feel inspired to dress up a sweet treat for someone special in your life. These could easily be made for any occasion,  Valentine's Day is right around the corner and I think I may have to make a few more for my guys, I'll swap out the paper and sentiments. Easy peasy and in expensive!

Good morning! Heather here this morning with a new edition of Wednesday in the Works! This week I'm showing you a fun way to stretch your supplies by using some of the letters from the fun new OMG stamp set to create a new word!


Here is this week's video showing how this card came together:



I thought it would be fun to use some of the letters to create a different focal point word for this card - I also want to make a "MOM" version using this die as well. Wouldn't that be fun? And can you see the Glossy Accents on the large letters in this next photo and the fun bit of shine they add?


I used Stormy Cardstock to heat emboss my supporting sentiment, and Stormy Dye ink to stamp my image from Cheerful Pals to color in - it's one of my favorite colors to give a softer look to a Copic colored image.


The stitched heart from the new Hearts Confetti cuts is perfect for adding a bit of detail to the background of the cardfront. Can you see the subtle detail it adds? 


Some pattern paper from the new Sweet as Sugar 6x6 Pattern Paper Pad and bling finish off this simple card!


Thanks so much for stopping by today - have a wonderful day!!!

YOU BE YOU

Hello!  I just love making encouragement cards and the new Cheerful Pals stamp set is perfect for these type of cards.    I started off with stamping the images from Cheerful Pals onto Premier Polar White cardstock and coloring them with my Copic markers.   I love the little cat cheerleader!  Isn't she adorable!  

 


I die cut the images out with with Cheerful Pals Confetti Cuts.  To build my scene, I used the largest die from the Stitched Squares Confetti Cuts and ink blended with my Distress Oxides.   The grassy border was made with the Nuts About You Confetti Cuts.   




 I added some clouds using the Over the Rainbow Confetti Cuts.   Instead of a sentiment on the front of the card, I used the banner and star from the Cheerful Pals stamp set and added to the panel with a mini clip and a heart border from the new Hearts Confetti Cuts that had been trimmed down.  




 I then layered my scene on top of a kraft panel that had been die cut with the Stitched Scallops Cover Panel.   I just love the stitching details that this adds to a panel.   To finish it off, I added some jewels and used my white gel pen to add some details to the images.  





I hope that you have a beautiful day and if you need a little encouragement, here you go.... YOU are awesome!!!!

Hello everyone! I`m happy to return to cardmaking again after the holidays. My first card in 2020 made with Happy Mail and Butterfly Wreath.

I stamped the flowers from  Happy Mail with watermark ink and embossed it with white powder. Then I colored it with watercolor markers and toned with Distress ink.


I stamped the wreath and other details from Butterfly Wreath and colored it with alcoholic markers. Then I applied Confetti Cuts to it.
I stamped the title using OMG and applied OMG Confetti Cuts to it.


I put all elements of my card together and decorated it with drops.

Have a nice day!
