basis card stock

The paper I used was Basis White Card Stock for the card. Basis White is so versatile. I love it for the foundation of most of my card making. It cuts and scores beautifully. At 80#, I choose to set my Cricut Maker at a card stock setting of 100# which works well even for small detailed cuts.

Cricut maker

I cut the file on a Cricut Maker. As a reminder, set the red lines to score and load your scoring tool before setting the file to cut.

card parts

There are three rose cuts for this card. You could choose to use only one or you could enlarge them if desired. I urge you to watch the video tutorial below for tips and techniques on how to weed these delicate cuts.

I have another pretty card that could be used for a wedding, an anniversary, or just a special greeting. You can add your own sentiment or leave it as is. There are options for adding 3 dimensions to this card by lifting up some of the cutting. I have also added gems to finish the card off.

At 80#, I choose to set my Cricut Maker at a card stock setting of 100# which works well even for small detailed cuts. Don’t forget to set the red line to score before sending the file to cut.

The addition of the gems to the centers isn’t necessary but a nice option. If you don’t want to use your personal cutter for the smaller square piece, I cut mine on a paper trimmer to 3″ x 3″. The finished card is 4″ x 6″.

Fairy Card with Heart Stems

Follow along to make this fairy card with heart stems. Lots of techniques included.

Today I am working with a stamp from Fairy Hugs called Alexa. She is joyful and playful so I added an array of three different colored heart stems behind her to amplify her action. The card doesn’t have a sentiment. I like leaving them blank until later so the card can be used for a variety of different occasions. I can always add a sentiment but changing one isn’t that easy.

Ways to Stamp Texture

Learn fun stamping techniques with Fairy Stamper stamps.

with Fairy Stamper

I enjoy creating my own textured papers using a variety of different techniques. For my Fairy Stampers Video Design post this month, I used a bulrushes stamp in different ways to create the background paper for my card. Another Fairy Stampers stamp was used for the sentiment. This was a fun card to make.

The card came together in a two-step process. The first was creating the background, and the second was creating the sentiment strip.

stamping  sentiment

After embossing the cardstock, the sentiment was stamped on top. Since the embossed cardstock has texture, the stamp needed to be applied more than once.

Once the parts of the card were made, it was time to put it all together. A tape runner and foam tape were used.

Here is a close-up shot of the card so you can see the texture and misting spray as well as the raised sentiment. You can really see how the colors work together in this image.

Making a Beary Cute Card

Working with products from the Maker’s Movement made this card so bear cute!

with Maker’s Movement

Planning, coloring, and die-cutting this card was so peacefully enjoyable. I knew the moment I saw the bear stamp he was going to be a polar bear. My daughter loves polar bears. What excites me about the card is that I used the leftover cut-out leaves from a past project as the stencil to create the background! What a great way to extend the use of the die and the card stock. I keep all my left-over parts just in case for moments like this.

Materials:

  • card stock ‚Äď white and patterned

  • Woodland Friends – die and stamp sets
  • Distress Oxide
  • blending brush
  • Mini Maker
  • tape runner
  • Stazon black ink pad
  • Intense black ink pad
  • washi tape
  • Derwent Inktense pencils

Because I video the process, I didn’t get a chance to stop and photograph the ink blending with the DIY stencil on the front of the card. But you can see it all happen in the video tutorial below.

Isn’t that bear just so cute? After stamping and coloring, I taped the die in place then sent it all through the Mini Maker to cut. The only thing left to do is stamp the sentiment and put the card together.

Pumpkin Mandala Card

Follow along and make this pumpkin mandala for fall, Halloween, or Thanksgiving. It is so versatile it works for card making or home decor. #sponsored #cutcardstock

with printable and free SVG

Today I am using an SVG file to create a Pumpkin Mandala Card. This design works well for Halloween, Fall, or Thanksgiving. I’ve used the mandala for a card but you could make it larger for a beautiful decor piece. Or just framing the card would be nice too.

Many of the items I use in my posts are provided by the manufacturers in order to promote their products.
A special thanks to those brands who sponsor this site.

Orange, brown, and gold card stocks are being featured this month on CutCardStock. I am using Cosmic Orange and Stardream Metallic Card Stock in Bronze. I really like the iridescent quality of the Stardream card stocks.

I cut the CutCardStock on a Cricut Maker. The Cosmic Orange was cut at 100# and the Metallic Bronze was cut twice at 100#. While the mat is still in the Maker, just hit the go button again.

Mother’s Day Card

An SVG to make a card for Mother’s Day. #affiliate

As a mom, I have to say some of the best presents are homemade. I love it when my daughters take the time to make me something. I’d rather they not spend money on me. This Mother’s Day Card is one with a few steps but it isn’t difficult to make. I think any mother would appreciate a handmade card.

I work with a few different companies and with this card, I was able to combine their products. The following links are affiliate links, they cost nothing for you to use and in fact, they help support this site. Thank you for using them.

Materials:

Directions:

Using the free SVG file listed above, cut the white card stock with your personal cutting machine.

I am using a Cricut Maker. I set the red line to score and added the scoring tool.

This card is made from three parts, the cut cardstock,
the polka dot card stock cut just shy of 6″ x 8″,¬†
and a piece of Rinea¬†red foil¬†paper 4″ x 2.25″.
 

I used the Best Glue Ever to attach all the layers.
 

I applied glue around the word Mom and around the outer edge of the Rinea foil paper.
 

The back of the red foil paper is gold.

Hopefully, you can get a sense of the luminous red foil from the above photo.

Using the same process, I attached the polka-dotted scrapbooking paper.
The paper I chose had a white back, making the inside of the card ready for a special message.
The folded size is 6″ x 4″.

Make a lucky card for St. Patrick’s Day.

Some products used in this post were provided by the following companies: Cricut, CutCardStock, Scrapbook Adhesives

You’ll want to grab the SVG file to make the card and cut it out on your personal cutting machine. I used a Cricut Maker.

Purchase file: St. Patricks Day SVG

Make a Quick and Easy Card with ScraPerfect

I have a post up on ScraPerfect today for making a quick and easy card.

I began this card with a gelli print I was playing around with and decided to stamp onto it. Which then turned into making a card. Sometimes that’s how things happen, with the end not in sight. Using ScraPerfect products make this card making so quick and easy. See my post on the ScraPerfect blog where I post tutorials twice a month as a part of their design team.
