Make It Monday Challenge--Sentiment Windows

Hi Everyone!

I'm playing along with this week's Make It Monday Challenge over at Papertrey Ink. 

My big box of Christmas stamps is down from my shelf and waiting to be used.  I actually keep all my holiday and winter themed stamps together in an old Papertrey Ink Make It Market box.  It fits everything perfectly.  I keep it out of the way during the year, but come October, it comes down for all my holiday projects.  Papertrey Ink has some of my favorite Christmas stamps so I was ready for this week's challenge.

We had to make a sentiment window opening on our card with the sentiment featured on the inside.  I recently got the new Vintage Holiday magazine and was inspired with so many ideas.  I love the retro Christmas colors and decorations from the 1950s and 60s and love making projects with this theme in mind.

This is the card I created for the challenge:

I covered the front of a vertical white notecard with some patterned paper and cut a window using Papertrey Ink's Shaker Shapes Circle die.  To stamp the sentiment inside, I used Papertrey's Christmas Cheer stamp set--it's has some great "retro" looking scripty sentiments.

Stamping Tip:

To stamp the sentiment, I used my Tim Holtz Tonic Stamp Platform.  I also have a Misti, but for cards that are differently shaped like this one (vertical opening), I like this tool.  It does not have a "lip" around the edge, so you can stamp large cards or scrapbook pages easily.  I do love my Misti though, for it's compactness, so I think both are useful.

I used the Vintage Ornaments and Additions stamp set from Papertrey Ink--a huge favorite of mine.  I believe this set is retired, but they do have another similar set called Vintage Ornaments II that is available.  To add some shimmer, I heat embossed some of the patterns on the ornaments with glittered embossing powder.

Kat Scrappiness Design Team Project: Happy Halloween--Toil & Trouble Layered Stamp Set

 

Hi Everyone!  It’s Heidi and I’m here with a fun Halloween card using the new Kat Scrappiness Toil & Troubled Layered Stamp Set.  Since layering stamps have come out, they have been some of my favorites to work with.  The amount of dimension you get with an otherwise flat image amazes me!  For this card, I added a little bit of holographic embossing powder to the cat to really make it stand out.

Here's a closer look.........

I've also been enjoying masking again, which is why I had to stamp these little cats 3 times in a row.

I have a video below that shows you how I put everything together.  Enjoy!

I made an additional card using the same Copics I used in my first project.  I did some simple masking of flowers from Mudra's Linen Blooms and colored those in.  Then, I backed my floral panel with a square cut from one of the Kat Scrappiness Cross-Stitched square dies.  I love that little bit of unexpected detail and texture it gives.  I embossed the card base with an embossing folder from We R Memory Keepers called Woven.

Kat Scrappiness Design Team Project: So Very Grateful

 

Hi Everyone!  I'm back with a project for Kat Scrappiness using a heat embossing technique with lots of shimmery gold.  I also do a little pop up with my front panel which adds an interesting detail.

To start, I secured the leaf stencil from the Gina Marie Designs June Stencils Bundle to the front of a 4.25"x5.5" white notecard using some Post-It tape.  Using a Versamark ink pad, I spread the ink evenly over the stencil.

I then heat embossed the area with some Ranger Gold Embossing Powder.

After cutting off the back of the notecard, I used the 6th square in the Never Ending Squares die set, to cut into the center of the embossed panel to creat two parts.

I adhered the frame part to the front of another white notecard, then placed 2 layers of foam tape on the square.  I placed the square on top of the framed piece lining up the leaves exactly.

I stamped Mudra's Grateful Hollow sentiment stamp onto some vellum with Versafine Onyx, heat embossed it with Ranger Clear embossing powder, then cut that out with the 5th rectangle from the Never Ending Rectangle die set.  The Never Ending dies are perfect when you need a lot of precision on a card like this.  They create nice, clean, exact lines.

I added the vellum piece to the square panel using some clear pop dots and added some Sparkling Manhattan Sequins to highlight the sentiment.
