Making a Party Hat with Cut Cardstock

Make a fun party hat for your celebration. @cutcardstock @cricutmade #sponsored

As a part of the Cut Cardstock design team, I have a post on their blog today making a star party hat. This hat file is very flexible. You can make it with the stars, or without. You can leave the star shapes open or layer tissue paper on the inside to color the stars.

Thanks to Cricut and Cut Cardstock for providing materials that were used in this post.

The card stock I used (affiliate links):

Cricut Maker
  • Cutting 100# card stock on the Maker, I found it best to cut it twice at the 100# card stock setting and selecting more pressure.

Embossing with Color

Check out this art crayon embossing techniques. @MarabuAmerica @jointhemakersmovement #sponsored

Using Marabu Art Crayons

I had so much fun with this color embossing technique, using Marabu Art Crayons and embossing plates. I love how the color moves when water is added. The results are playful and colorful and can be used so many different ways. I think the results would be great for card backgrounds, die-cutting, mixed media, collage, scrapbooking, and more.

Thank you to Marabu and Maker’s Movement for providing materials that were used in this post.

Make a Quick and Easy Card

Make a quick card from wrapping paper.

Wrapping a present for a birthday party, we needed a card. I had very little time before we needed to leave. After wrapping the present, I decided to use the wrapping paper to make a matching card. It was so quick and easy to do.

As a craft designer, I am provided materials to create with.
Some items used in this post were provided by the manufactures.

Materials:

  • wrapping paper
  • stamp – Stampendous
  • the works board – We R Memory Keepers
  • ink pad – izink
  • cardstock
  • tape runner – Scrapbook Adhesives

*Note: single-sided wrapping paper works best so the design from the other side doesn’t show through like the example does.

How to Etch Ceramics

I etched a ceramic box using Etchall cream. #sponsored @Etchall @CricutMade

Etching cream is usually used on glass surfaces but did you know you can also etch ceramic surfaces? Etchall works great on glass, ceramic, and slate surfaces. One of the best things about Etchall cream is that it is reusable, so a bottle is going to last a long time.
