My Daughter's First Cuttlekids Card

My daughter broke out her new Cuttlekids and made this for her grandma's b-day. I didn't help one bit!


The flower, leaves, and stem are from the Cuttlekids die. I was quite proud of her results.

Until next time!

CARD: Birthday w/ Feb SOTM

I'm a little late, but here is a birthday card I made using the CTMH February Stamp of The Month:


Until next time!

CARD: Embossing Paste + Birthday = ...

I saw a demonostration with Embossing Paste at a Rubber Stamp and Scrapbooking Expo I went to recently and thought I'd try it out on my own and here is the result:



The task itself was quite easy and quick, I just had to make sure I cleaned off the tools I used before the paste dried - which I did.

Supplies for this project:
  • Light Table
  • Stencil
  • Cardstock
  • Chalk & Brush or Ink Pad & Daubers
  • Repositionable Tape
  • 1-2 Cups of Water (for putting tools in after use until you can scrub them)
  • Old Toothbrush
  • Embossing Paste (I used translucent)
  • Embossing Paste palette knife
  • Squeegee
  • Glitter and Glitter Tray (optional)

Steps for using Embossing Paste (as I did):
  1. Adhere stencil to cardstock and light table with repositionable tape
  2. Use chalk or ink of your choosing to color the cardstock with the stencil
  3. Use the palette knife to scoop the embossing paste (make sure you close the lid on the paste to ensure it doesn't dry out) and run it across the stencil and your cardstock - place the knife in a tub of water or something where it can stay moist until you can come back to it and clean it
  4. Use the squeegee to ensure the paste gets in all the grooves and return excess paste to the jar - place in the tub of water
  5. Quickly remove the stencil from the cardstock and place in the tub of water
  6. You may leave as is or add glitter as you would anything else
  7. Take the toothbrush and scrub the items you placed in water until they are free from all paste residue
  8. Let your finished work dry for 30-40 minutes

You can find more info on using Embossing Paste by visiting Dreamweaver Stencils

Until next time!

CARD: My 1st Magnolia Card

I just received my first Magnolia stamp and thought I'd take some time to color with my Copic's and see what I could create. Here is my 1st Magnolia card:


Of course this couldn't be possible without my CTMH paper, ink pads, stamps, and ribbon!

Until next time!

A new crafter...

My daughter's b-day isn't actually until the 14th but due to family schedules we celebrated yesterday and this is one of the many items she received:


What is that? A Cuttlekids! She's joining me in crafty craziness. She's been asking for this ever since she saw it at our local Michael's. I happened to see it at Joann's on clearance along with a lot of the dies so I swooped them up and hid them for her b-day.

Until next time!
