Yum, Cookie-scent!

Hello!  I hope you all are having a fabulous day!  It's Candice with you, hoping to inspire you with these sweet bakers!

Truth be told, I got this Secret Ingredients stamp set for Christmas and wanted to create with it before winter is over!  Don't you just love diving into a new stamp set?!

  • I first create the card base measuring 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 and die cut a stitched frame.
  • For the background, I first heat embossed the stars in white with the twinkle stencil, and then inked lightly with antique linen & tattered rose.

  • Next, I stamped the snowmen & ingredients and created the table from the Triangle Banners stamp set, colored them with copic markers and used my scan 'n cut to cut out.
  • To finish the card, I stamped the sentiment in versafine black ink, adding wink of stella and white accents to a few of the images, and some yellow nuvo drops.

To create my slimline stitched frame, I first trimmed a long piece of cardstock and ran the die through, stopping before it cut the bottom.  I lined it up in the stitches already made and repeated on the opposite side.  For the width, I lined it up in the stitches and ran it through again, stopping before it cut the bottom.  I then repeated it on the opposite side, creating my slimline stitched die!


Don't forget about the bi-weekly challenge that you can enter using your Create a Smile stamps for your chance to win!

Spring Happy Birthday

Hey stampers, Anni here!

Today I want to share a birthday card with you.

After all these Christmas cards I made and all the grey days I needed some flowers. I went through my flowre stamp sets by Create a Smile and realized that the Cleamtis didn't get enough love yet. So I decided to play with it.

  • I started by stamping the single flowers not in black but in grey as I thought the black could be too harsh.
  • For the colouring I used coloured pencils.
  • I fussy cute the flowers and the leaves.
  • For the sentiment I die cut several layers of the word happy and stack them up.
  • Then I stamped birthday on a stripe og violet paper and heat embossed it in white.
  • I die cut a oval shape from vellum and embossed it with a polka dot embossing folder.
  • I arranged the elemnts on my card and added some enamel stickers for a finishing touch.

Every other wednesday starts a new challenge with an awesome prize to win.

A birthday cart....!!


Hi everyone...

It's Ashlee here with you today and I have a card to share with you featuring the super adorable set "Cart full of treasures"... 

I just love this stamp set because it is so fun to be able to mix and match the accessories with the cart however you like!!

I really wanted to pile a whole bunch of the accessories into one cart....

- First I used some masking tape to mask off the bottom piece of my card base and then inked with Catherine Pooler Black Jack ink to create a ground
- I stamped the sentiment using the same CP ink
- Using the Twinkle stencil with Distress Oxide ink Salty Ocean I added a touch of twinkle to the base
- Stamped and coloured all the images using Copic markers then cut them all out with my Brother scan n cut machine
- Layered all the images and placed onto the card base with foam tape.

Stuck at which Copic colours to use?! Here is a Copic colour list for you to help get you started....

Twinkle stencil

To have fun and get creative, sit, relax and colour your images and let the ideas build from there!! 

Happy crafting everyone.... 
Hugs Ashlee.

Stamped Frame-Cards [VIDEO]

Hi everybody :-)

Today I have one Video with two cards for you. And I surprised myself by finding the space-card much better, although I first wanted to stop after the sweets-card... so, I'm happy I went on, so I can show you two cards today, and I hope you like them

I loove masking, and so I thought to create cards with kind of frames is a nice way to join me some masking-fun :-)

Here you can watch the video in english

Hier ist das Video in Deutsch

Did you know that Christine, the company owner, does little crafty videos from time to time? You can find them on Instagram, in the IGTV-feed :-) they are lovely
