I used the Crackerbox Stamps Fairy with Attitude Stamp and colored her in with Copic Markers. For her wings, I used a VersaMark marker and then heat embossed them with some sparkle embossing powder and then fussy cut her out. I used and cut out the Crackerbox Stamps Fairy Dust Bag and added some sparkle embossing powder to it too.
On my card front using the edge of a piece of paper to create a mask, I ink blended on some blue ink towards the bottom of the card to create a floor for the fairy. Then I adhered her and the fairy dust to the front of my card.

Then I stamped the Crackerbox Stamps Happy Dust sentiment and heat embossed it with the same sparkle embossing powder and added a little bit of glitter around it. I matted the card front with some Rinea Starstruck Foiled Paper in Fuchsia. Adhered everything together with Xyron Mega Runner.

Below is a video tutorial showing exactly how I created my project.
Make sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel and click the bell so you will get updates when I post a new video.


To create the plaid hearts, I used The Crafter's Workshop TCW955 Buffalo Plaid Square Stencil on a piece of red cardstock and used an ink blender and black ink to create the pattern. As shown below....


This is what it looked like completed. 


Then I used Maker's Movement new Simple Heart Shaker Die to die cut out hearts from the plaid design I created and used the same die to die cut the Love letters from white cardstock. I also used the Maker's Movement Slimline Essentials Die to create the card front.
To adhere it all together using my Xyron Mega Runner and a few foam squares to raise up a couple of the hearts.

Ribbon Weave Valentine's Day Card

Hello crafty friends! Today I am sharing a ribbon weaved heart Valentine's Day card. This card is easier than it looks to create and has such a pretty outcome.

Some of the products I have used in this post have been provided to me by various companies. The opinions I share are solely my own. Affiliate links may be used where possible at no cost to you. However, I do earn a small commission when you click on my link and make a purchase from them. Thank you, and I appreciate your support!

The first step was to cut out a heart from a 4" x 5.25" white piece of cardstock and then I used the cutout heart to trace onto a 4.25" x 5.50" piece of patterned paper.


Then using my Xyron Mega Runner, I ran adhesive around the traced heart and through the middle of the heart too.


Next, I cut strips of the Gwen Studios Red Sheer Ribbon and started cross layering starting from the top center of the heart.



I continued laying until the heart was covered. Then cut all of the ends of the ribbon to make sure they were not too close to the edge of the card front. Then added foam tape to the white cardstock piece that I cut the heart out of and added it to the woven ribbon card front.


Then I added some heart sequins and stamped a small sentiment on the front.

DIY Sunflower Suncatcher

 Hello! Even though it seems like Winter has just started I am ready for Spring. I like Winter but don't like being cold. So I decided to add a little sunshine or should I say Sunflower into my home with this DIY Sunflower Suncatcher.

I first found a sunflower SVG file at the Silhouette Design Store that I liked and sized it using the Silhouette Design Studio. Then I found the perfect StyleTechCraft Transparent Vinyl colors in Sunflower and Brown. Then I cut the sunflower and word out using my Silhouette Cameo 4.


To transfer the image to the acrylic sheet, I used the StyleTechCraft Clear Grid Transfer Tape to help me line up all the pieces.


Here is what it looks like hanging in the window.

I started by creating my background by spraying some color spray onto some watercolor paper and matting it with black cardstock and adhering it using my Xyron Mega Runner to some grey polka dot patterned paper. I stamped the Crackerbox Stamps VooDoo Doll and colored it in with Copic Markers in W5, W4, W3 & W1. I used a glitter marker on the eyes and pin to give them a little shimmer. Then I fussy cut him out.

For the sentiment, I stamped the Crackerbox Stamps VooDoo Doll Birthday sentiment and matted it with black cardstock, and used 3D foam squares to adhere it to the front of my card along with the doll. The VooDoo Doll & Sentiment can also be purchased as a set.

On the inside of the card, I stamped the Crackerbox Stamps Birthday 6 sentiment.

Simple Valentine's Day Cards Using A Stencil

 Hello! Today I am sharing a couple of simple Valentine's Day cards using a stencil.

Some of the products I have used in this post have been provided to me by various companies. The opinions I share are solely my own. Affiliate links may be used where possible at no cost to you. However, I do earn a small commission when you click on my links and make a purchase from them. Thank you, and I appreciate your support!

Using some The Crafter's Workshop TCW9051 Watercolor Paper Pack cut down to 5" x 3.75" and laying The Crafter's Workshop TCW936 Messy Writing Stencil onto the watercolor paper then spraying it with some color spray. Spraying heavier on the bottom corner and lighter towards the top corner.


After spraying quickly pick up the stencil and place paper to the side to dry. The stencil should still have a lot of color spray on it and instead of wasting it, lay the stencil down making sure that the wettest part of the stencil is facing up.


Then lay another piece of watercolor paper down onto the stencil. Make sure to press the paper down onto the stencil well so the color spray is soaked up into the paper. Then pull the paper back up off of the stencil.


Here is what both card fronts look like after drying.


Next, I die cut out a heart from white cardstock and adhered it to the center of each one of the card fronts. Then over the heart, I stamped the Sending Love sentiment from The Crafter's Workshop TCW2201 Sending Love 4x6 Clear Stamps Set and some of the hearts that are also from the set using VersaFine Clair Glamorous Ink. Then adhered the card front to red cardstock from the Scrapbook.com Peppermint Smooth Cardstock Paper Pack and then to an A2 card base. I also randomly added some Clear Nuvo Crystal Drops.



Which one is your favorite?

Happy New Year Card

 Hello! Today I am sharing a Happy New Year card with you all that I made. Is anyone else ready for the new year? I know I am!

However, I do earn a small commission when you click on my links and make a purchase from them. Thank you, and I appreciate your support!

I started with some navy cardstock and stamped the Crackerbox Stamps Fireworks Stamp and stamped it along the top and bottom edge of the card front using gold ink. This Fireworks Stamp would be a great stamp for 4th of July cards too.

I stamped the Crackerbox Stamps Wine Bottle Stamp on a piece of white cardstock and used a gold paint marker to color the top and label of the bottle and a Copic Marker to color the green part of the bottle. Then I fussy cut the bottle out.

On another piece of white cardstock, I stamped the Crackerbox Stamps Happy New Year Script Stamp and tucked it under the bottle going to the side of the card. I matted the sentiment and card front with gold glitter paper and added some streamer sequins.
