cat tag

Cats are playful. The Nala stamp from Fairy Stamper needed to be playful and the scrapbook paper with the birds worked well. I put the two together to make a playful tag.

Materials:

  • scrapbook paper
  • cardstock
  • Nala stamp
  • black ink pad
  • clear embossing powder
  • heat gun
  • DIY shimmer spray
  • Distress Oxide
  • blending brush
  • ribbons
  • hole punch
  • works board
  • scissors
  • tape runner

Video Tutorial:

The glimmer on the tag is hard to capture on video and photography. Hopefully, the image above shows a bit of how it shimmers. I make my own shimmer spray. If you would like to learn how to make your own you can follow this link. [DIY shimmer spray]

Making a Get-Well Card

Making a get-well card with Fairy Stamper stamp and stencil.

with Fairy Stamper

finished card

As a part of the Fairy Stamper’s Video Design Team, I have a new card tutorial for making a get-well greeting card. I could probably send this to myself as I am getting over a cold that lasted a long 2.5 weeks where I lost my voice. So I have a lot of catching up to do. Thankfully, no Covid, I was tested twice!

materials

Materials:

  • stencil
  • cardstock – blue, green, white
  • blending brush
  • Distress Oxide
  • Pixie spray
  • stamps
  • Works Board
  • white embossing powder
  • DIY shimmer spray
  • adhesive
  • heat gun
  • Rinea Foiled Paper – die-cut sentiment

I wanted to try something different with my stamping in that we typically stamp in black and I wanted to use white. I wasn’t sure about stamping a fairy in white so I chose to work with the florals. I also wanted to use a stencil to texturize the background and I really like how that turned out.

The close-up image above caught the DIY shimmer mist really well on the card. If you would like to learn how I made it, you can follow this link. [shimmer mist]

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.

Embossing Toilet Paper

You can emboss toilet paper – have you tried this technique yet?

embossed toilet paper

Toilet paper for crafting – yes! I embossed layers of toilet paper. This technique was a new one for me and I couldn’t wait to try it out in a variety of different ways. I really like the playfulness of this technique and the fun results from a basically disposable product.

basic materials
basic materials

What a fun way to use your embossing plates in a new way. The basic materials needed are an embossing plate, toilet paper, a spray bottle with water, and a manual die-cutting machine – mine is a CrossOver II.

I also used a stamp pad, glimmer mist spray, and spray inks.

styles of embossing
styles of embossing

While the differences might look subtle in some of the dry embossed toilet paper samples, yours could look very different depending upon the colors you use. Starting from left: spray inks, plain white, pink ink pad, spray glimmer mist. Once the embossing has dried, you can also add additional color on top*. I would suggest wiping with an ink pad to add color.

*Please note that any additional wet products added to your dried embossing could reactivate the paper and you could lose the embossed designs.

Video Tutorial:

These embossed pieces once dry can be used in all forms of crafting. You can cut them down to your desired shape and size. I would even suggest trying to die-cut them. One additional suggestion: to adhere use a tacky type of glue and don’t use a tape runner on the embossed toilet paper – it will tear.

Can You Stamp on Glass?

Have you ever tried to stamp and emboss on glass? See the magic!

with Fairy Stamper

The answer is, yes you can! I was excited when I saw this technique and knew I had to give it a try. Stamping and embossing on glass! I love the result. This beautifully framed piece was created as a part of the Fairy Stampers Video Design Team.

Materials:

  • Condo Dwellers FHS-060
  • Fantasy Flowers FHS-032
  • Works Board
  • VersaMark stamp pad
  • frame with glass
  • embossing powder
  • heat gun
  • decorative paper

After stamping and applying the embossing powder, you’ll want to clean off any excess powder and move to a heat-safe surface. Then the fun part, watch the embossing powder transform under the heat.

Clean off both sides of the glass with water and then frame the glass to finish the piece. I can’t wait to try this again and color the image, similar to stained glass!

Shaker Tag

Making a shaker tag with @jointhemakersmovement #sponsored

With Makers Movement

What a fun twist on making a shaker card, a shaker tag. The Makers Movement sent me a new set of Rainbow Shaker elements and I wanted to try them out. I was ready to make a shaker tag with the Nested Tag Die Set and the Hello Word Die.

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.

Using the CrossOver II I cut my cardstock and transparency sheet. I used the nested dies to press into the adhesive foam core and then cut it with a craft knife. The CrossOver II can handle all kinds of material because it has a unique dial that can adjust the steel rollers for a variety of different thicknesses.

Here are all the cut pieces ready to begin assembling them together. You can see the entire process in the video tutorial below.

Video Tutorial:

The close-up above shows the thickness of the three layers of embossing powder. The pearlescent quality of the embossing changed the color of the card stock some of which add to the difference between the layers of white letters on the white tag.
