Poppy Cards - Stamping and Masking to create different card designs


Hey Everyone!

Today it is all about Poppy Cards created with one of Fleurette Bloom's latest Stamp sets Poppies.
I've been wanting to try masking to create my own unique designs and finally got the chance! This is a great way to make the most of a stamp especially if you are like me and just getting into stamping :) The mask was done by stamping my images on some Inkadinkado Stamping Mask Paper and then using my Silhouette PixScan mat, to cut the images out. Click HERE for previous tutorial on using the PixScan. 

For this card I also used her Happy Days Stamp Set. The images were stamped onto Neenah Solar White 80lbs paper using Memento tuxedo black ink.  The Happy Birthday was stamped using Versafine Onyx black and then embossed and set with Wow! Regular Clear Gloss embossing powder. I used my Spectrum Noir Markers to colour the images in (CR4, CR6, CT2, CT4, CG1,CG2). Then I used the Die-namics Wonky stitched Rectangle to frame it out. The card base is a landscape, 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" mounted onto a black piece of cardstock cut to the same size. Finished by adding some sparkle by using some Clear Wink of Stella, and some sequins.

Isn't she pretty!? Never knew I could feel this way about a card, lol!


To the inside I added the smaller poppy to the bottom corner.


For those of you that like to watch You Tube videos, here is a video I put together of during the making of this card. If you haven't yet make sure you subscribe to my channel :)




And here is another card I made using similar techniques.


For this one I used the Rectangle Stitch Die from Simon Says, Spectrum Noir Markers (CR4, CR5, CG1, CG2, BT1), White Embossing powder, and some Pretty Pink Posh clear droplets.


For this next card I also used little butterfly from Fleurette Bloom's Thank You Stamp Set.


I also used the Spectrum Noir Markers CG1, CG2, OR1, OR2, OR3, CT4, and BT1. The Stitched Circle Die from Simon Says Stamp and a Script Embossing folder from We R Memory Keepers. This Card base is a 5 1/2" Square.


Hope you have enjoyed my Poppy Cards and maybe even got a little inspired to create your own designs using the masking technique! If you do don't forget to share your creations on Fleurette Bloom's FB Page. We would love to see them :)

Thanks for stopping by!

DIY Flower Vase Shaker Card


Hey everyone!

I have a bunch of birthdays coming up, so I wanted to stock up and make a few cards to have on hand using supplies that I have been hoarding and hadn't tried out yet! Anyone else have that problem? LOL!

Today I want to share with you a really cute DIY Flower Vase Shaker Card.
This will make the perfect birthday card for one of the ladies in my life!
Who doesn't love flowers?!


The first thing I did for this card was stamp and clear ink emboss with WOW! embossing powder onto some 80lb Neenah cardstock. The stamps I used for this card come from Stampendous - Bouquet for you set. I then water coloured the images in staying with the wells of the embossed areas. Once I was happy with the colouring I loaded the paper onto my Silhouette PixScan mat, scanned it and did the trace of the image and then cut them out!

Here is a cell phone pic I took after the cut (sorry for the bad quality).
I can't tell you how much I LOVE, LOVE my PixScan mat! No fussy cutting required!!!
Click HERE for previous tutorial on the PixScan.


Want to know where I got the vase cut out?!
It is actually a die piece to cut out bows from American Crafts - Dear Lizzy - Fine and Dandy (the banner also came from this die set). When I cut out the top layer of the card I made sure that my big shot would stop cutting the bow by having the top plate end where the bottom of the vase would be. I then just used a craft knife to cut the piece out. So easy right? Sometimes you just have to look at the supplies you have in a different way to stretch out your collection!


The rest of the shaker was assembled like any other shaker card. I used some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh, Martha Stewart Glitter and some Recollections Microbeads. I then added the top layer of the card to a piece of coordinating green scrap I had and mounted it onto A-6 Card base.

Hope this DIY Flower Vase Shaker Card, has inspired you to create something similar and maybe look at supplies you have in a whole different way!

Spring Thank You Card


Hello crafty friends!

Today I have another sweet and simple Spring Thank You card to share with you.

I keep getting inspired by all the crafty goodness from the FB Stamping Enablers Group. If you are at all interested in stamping you need to join their group! BTW I'm not affiliated with them at all, but if you are looking to get inspired they are a truly an enabling group :)

What better way to say thank you then with flowers!
At least these ones will last forever ;)


Here is the recipe for this card:
  • Stamps - Spring Hello by Lia - Hero Arts
  • Ink - distress inks - Tim Holtz
    • Tuxedo Black - Memento
  • Blending tool - 1 Inch Round - Ranger
  • Stamp Positioner - my own DIY Stamping tool
  • Dies - Wonky Stiched Rectangles Stax- My Favorite Things Die-Namics 
    • Flower pot (present) - Party Dies - Craftin Desert Divas
  • Cardstock - Neenah Solar White 80lbs
    • Craft - Recollections
  • Twine - hemp twine

The flower and leaf stamps once stamped were then cut on the Silhouette PixScan mat using a scanner. Click HERE for a previous tutorial on the pixscan/scanner method.

The hardest part of the card was piecing and layering the flower arrangement!


 Hope you've enjoyed my card today :)

Thank YOU all for stopping by!
Happy Crafting  :)

Hello Spring Celtic Card | SVGCuts

Hello Everyone!!!

I cannot remember the last time we have had such a mild winter. The little snow that we had is almost all gone! Every year it feels like we only get a few weeks of Spring and then go straight into summer because of our extremely long winters! This year I think we will see it fairly soon (fingers crossed). I cannot wait for Spring to arrive!

When I first saw the latest FREE Celtic Card file from SVGCuts, I immediately was inspired to create a Spring/Easter card. Look just how beautiful it turned out!
