Cupcake Slider Surprise - Gift Card Holder

Hello crafty friends,

Today I'm sharing something fun and interactive.  It's both a card and gift card holder which is pretty easy to replicate.   When I attended one of the Scrapbook  Expo events earlier this year I was mesmerized by the mechanism in this slider because it slides out on both sides.  I bought some of the blank white kits and have finally had a chance to use and capture it on video.  Combined with some fun stamps from Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps it turned out so cute!!!  (pssst...one of these stamps is free with any purchase until July 31, 2018 at the store - might want to grab it while you can).  Food & drink themed stamps are 15% off during this month as well.



Alcohol ink Galaxy background with Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps

Hello crafty friends,

Do you like galaxy backgrounds?  I love how there are so many ways to create one - today I wanted to do something I've done before - this time around I did capture the process of how I did it on camera.  Scroll on down to see the video towards the end of this post.


Split background take two | So Suzy Stamps


Hello crafty friends,

I am using a technique I call split backgrounds using 3 different So Suzy floral outline stamp images and I love how they turned out.  I used the split background technique that I posted about here.  This time I wanted to see how it would work with outline images, whether or not every one was colored or simply left stamped with no additional coloring.  I have a video showing how these were put together.
This post is also part of my YouTube series where I will be giving away a MISTI at the conclusion (this is part 2).  See this post for more details.


Split Background Technique | Citrus Stamps + giveaway

tubHello crafty friends,

I am excited to share a card making technique to make simple backgrounds more versatile without adding a lot of time to the process.  Depending on what level you want to take it to, you could use this as a mass production technique with one stamp (set) and one color, or mix it up like I have - I did stick with one ink color per card.  This is part 1 of a 2 part series.  I'm using stamps from Altenew and WPlus9.  If you came here from YouTube looking for details on the giveaway you will find that information after the video on this post.
