Cute Cards with Your Scraps!

Hello everyone & happy Saturday!! It’s been a very long week on my Homefront so I’m looking forward to my much needed vacation starting tomorrow. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

** Today is the last day to upload your projects for the 4 challenges over on the SpiegelMom Scraps Facebook events page (linked). It’s also the last day to hop the Holiday Happiness Blog Hop, found HERE to start with. There are PRIZES!! 

The last couple months I’ve been on a big card making binge. I’ve had orders for sets of cards to give as gifts and made a bunch of holiday cards too. Needless to say, I’m on a roll! Today I’d like to share a couple cards I made just using scraps of patterned paper & minimal stamping. My trick to making these cards it to use papers that aren’t real “matchy matchy.” I like a little contrast & to layer with a little dimension.  

    
To create the dimension I use craft fun foam, which is very inexpensive compared to using a bunch of adhesive foam tape or squares. I learned this trick from Jennifer McGuire. I found mine on Amazon for a great price & it came with free shipping. Score!! 

Another way I like to jazz up my cards a little is to add some May Arts Burlap String! It’s the perfect twine-type string for any project. Grab your scraps & get to creating!! You totally have time to crank out some card sets to give as gifts for teachers, secretaries, bosses, daycare providers and anyone else on your list!!

Be sure to stop back tomorrow for a grand blog hop featuring lots of holiday sparkle & shine!! PLUS I’m giving away more Marion Smith Designs goodies AND a $10 gift code to my Etsy Shop. See you tomorrow!! 

 

Farewell to Ka Slagowski, September’s Tuesday’s Talent

Today we are bidding farewell to Ka Slagoski, our Tuesday’s Talent this month. I have seriously enjoyed Ka’s posts and every little detail on her cards!  Thank you so much Ka.  I’m forever your fan!  I hope everyone enjoys, comments and shares Ka’s final guest designer post today.  

Hello everyone! It’s Ka here with my final post as SpiegelMom Scraps September Guest Designer! I’ve had so much fun designing with Jody’s awesome products! I hope you’ve enjoyed my creations and thank you so much for all the sweet comments and support! And a special thank you to Jody for inviting me to be to be part of SpiegelMom Scraps!

For today’s post, I made a birthday card with a matching birthday tag. I absolutely adore owls and think they are just some of the cutest critters. I decided to use the adorable owls images from the “Hoo Loves You” set from Whimsy Stamps to create today’s projects. @copicmarkers @WhimsyStamps @jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @mayartsribbon @studiocalico @americancrafts, #spiegelmomscraps #studiocalico #americancrafts #sequins #DIY #CardMaking #whimsyStamps #ink #stampI started the card by die-cutting a white stitched rectangle panel and masking the stitched edges with masking tape. I then, placed a Heidi Swapp Stencil over it and applied some mint ink all over the entire panel. I added some gray ink by lightly sponging around the edges.  To create the gray frame, I used the chisel end of a T4 Copic Marker to color in the masked stitches edges. This panel was adhered to a lavender card base. @copicmarkers @WhimsyStamps @jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @mayartsribbon @studiocalico @americancrafts, #spiegelmomscraps #studiocalico #americancrafts #sequins #DIY #CardMaking #whimsyStamps #ink #stampNext, I stamped the owls in gray ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I popped the owls up using foam dimensional adhesives and added an aqua chevron twill ribbon to ground them. I pulled out a Studio Calico Speech Bubble Wood Veneer and stamped “have a” and “birthday” to the speech bubble in black ink and then popped the speech bubble with foam dimensional adhesive. As a finishing touch, I scattered some sequins from the Sunny Day Sequins and Blue Lagoon Sequins Mix from SpeigelMom Etsy Shop. @copicmarkers @WhimsyStamps @jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @mayartsribbon @studiocalico @americancrafts, #spiegelmomscraps #studiocalico #americancrafts #sequins #DIY #CardMaking #whimsyStamps #ink #stampI thought it be fun to create a matching tag for the birthday card above. I did some stencil work on one of the SpiegelMom Scraps Medium Shipping Tag and matted it with a gray cardstock. I customized the “woo-hoo!” sentiment using Avery Elle Elle’s Alphas and stamped the sentiment from Newton’s Nook Designs Newton’s Birthday Bash set. @copicmarkers @WhimsyStamps @jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @mayartsribbon @studiocalico @americancrafts, #spiegelmomscraps #studiocalico #americancrafts #sequins #DIY #CardMaking #whimsyStamps #ink #stampThe owl and plum chevron twill ribbon were popped with foam dimensional adhesives. I finished the tag by adding the same mix of sequins as the card and tying yellow baker’s twine on top from SpiegelMom Scraps Etsy Shop.

@copicmarkers @WhimsyStamps @jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @mayartsribbon @studiocalico @americancrafts, #spiegelmomscraps #studiocalico #americancrafts #sequins #DIY #CardMaking #whimsyStamps #ink #stampI just love how this card and tag turned out!

Tuesday’s Talent ~ Cards with Ka

Hello SpiegelMom Fans! It’s Ka here to share two more cards with you! Today I am featuring gold products from SpiegelMom Scraps Etsy Shop. One of the most used metallic items in my stash is gold and second to it is silver. I love the different effects and looks of these metallic! They’re just so much fun!

Here is one of the gold products that I used on my card:@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @dearlizzy @americancrafts @mayartsribboninc

I decided to use the gold doily as a backdrop to help bring out the jar of bouquet. I know I didn’t do anything fancy to it, but I just love how it added the perfect shine to the card. The flowers from Avery Elle Petals and Stems set are stamped in pigment inks and carefully fussy cut. They were popped up on top of a jar which was also fussy cut from a patterned paper. The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn Our Friendship Grows stamp set. I finished the card by wrapping the jar twice with a pink burlap string and tying that into a little bow.

Next gold products are these sparkly sequins and confetti:@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps

@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff

When it comes to these fun sparkling sequins, I thought a shaker card is called for. Since I wanted to create the look of a collection of shoes displayed in a store window at the mall, I decided to have the shoes stamped in two rows using Encore Gold pigment ink. I created the shaker using some Simon Says Stamp Stitched Squares Dies, an acetate sheet and the stamped panel of shoes from The Tons Stamps.@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff

I filled in my shaker with SpiegelMom Scraps Tiny Gold Stars, Gold Rush and Gold Garland Confetti and sealed my shaker with the sentiment panel. The entire shaker was adhered to a sparkly DCWV Black Glitter Paper. I know this is such a simple shaker, but sometime simple is the best to go!

That is all for me today! Thanks for popping in and checking out these two cards! I hope you enjoyed them! And as always, if you like to see the full supplies list, click HERE.  I’ll be back here again next Tuesday to share even more cards using more SpiegelMom Scraps products!

Tuesday’s Talent, Ka is back!

Hello there! It’s Ka from Stamping Smiles Designs and SpiegelMom Scraps September guest designer! I hope you all had a long and fun Labor Day weekend! Today, I have two cards featuring goodies from SpiegelMom Scraps Etsy shop and some cute critters from a couple of my favorite stamp companies.  @stampingsmilesdesigns @spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff

“Miss You” Card

First card up today is this cute fox from Avery Elle More Stories stamp set! I used SpiegelMom Scraps Silver Stardust Confetti to create a starry backdrop on my night scene. I just love how perfect they are – the size and how they look! 🙂 To start the card, I die-cut a stitched rectangle from Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables die and masked off the stitched edges with post-it notes. I then blended Chipped Sapphire distress ink all over. I set that aside to dry while I worked on my stamped images.@stampingsmilesdesigns @spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff

I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with Copic Markers. The tree is actually a branch from Sweet ‘N Sassy Stamps Love Birds set, but I thought it was the perfect size to use it as a tree for this card. I used a coordinating die to cut the tree out and carefully fussy cut the fox and moon. I also die-cut a green hill using Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders die.

Once the sponged background was dried, I stamped the sentiment from the same set as the fox in VersaMark and white heat embossed. I adhered the hill and moon and popped the fox and tree with foam dimensional adhesives. I finished the card off by adhering the entire panel onto a kraft card base and randomly adhering those tiny silver stars on the top portion of my inky background to complete the scene. @stampingsmilesdesigns @spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff“Thank You So Much Card”

Next card I have for you is this cute birdy “thank you” card. The Varsity Sequins Mix from SpiegelMom Scraps was the inspiration behind this card. I love the blues, yellows and silver. Although, I didn’t use the blue and yellow sequins for this card, I did use the silver confetti sequins which SpiegelMom Scraps sell separately as Mirror Mirror on the Wall Sequins. To start, I masked and inked the background with mint, red and yellow inks with a foam applicator. That background panel was set aside to dry.

@stampingsmilesdesigns @spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff

Last week I had so much fun using the Shimmerz Paints Dazzlerz Lemon Drop paste on my “Hello Sunshine” card and so, this week, I decided that I wanted to play with paste again. For this card, I used the Gummy Berry Blue paste and I think it’s the perfect color to replace the blue sequins from the Varsity Sequins Mix. Every time I make a thank you card, I always have to include some kind of hearts. That’s just me. I always want the card to appear like its saying “thank you from the bottom of my heart.” 🙂 I took out the Simon Says Stamp Tiny Spaced Hearts stencil and placed it over a mini glassine bag. I spread the paste evenly and set this bag aside to dry.  @stampingsmilesdesigns @spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff

I stamped the two birdies, colored them with Copic Markers and carefully fussy cut them out. The images are from Lawn Fawn Chit Chat stamp set. I die-cut a white tag from Simon Says Stamp Large Tags Craft Die and printed a sentiment through my inkjet laser printer. I used SpiegelMom Scraps Navy Burlap Strings to tie the tag. Once everything was dried, I assembled everything to its place and finished the card off by scattering some silver confetti sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps Varsity Sequin Mix and added a Studio Calico Speech Bubble Wood Veneer on top of the bag.

 I had so much fun playing with these fun embellishments from SpiegelMom Scraps! These are just a few ideas to use SpiegelMom Scraps embellishments on your cards, but there are so much more you can do with them! I hope these cards inspired you to get busy in your craft room!

Guest Designer Laura Rumble Part 2!

Hello Everyone, and a big thank you to Jody for having me as Guest Designer for this month.  My second project for you is a scrapbook layout using doilies, seam binding and sequins from the SpiegelMom Scraps Etsy shop.

@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @mayartsribbon @mymindseyeinc @craftyribbons

I know the trend right now is for gelatos and watercolours – I have water soluble wax crayons – I guess kind of the same sort of thing.  I set to work on the white seam binding and doilies adding subtle touches of pastel colours, picked to match my patterned paper strips.

@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @mayartsribbon @mymindseyeinc @craftyribbons

 

Seam binding is great for taking colour.  I have never had a medium not take – I’ve used mists, inks, watercolour, pro markers, watered down acrylic paint, inktense pencils, and now soluble crayons.  Have a play… go on!

@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @mayartsribbon @mymindseyeinc @craftyribbons

As for the doilies, the more water I added the more fragile they became so I recommend not moving them until they are dry to avoid tearing.

@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @mayartsribbon @mymindseyeinc @craftyribbons

Supplies:
Doilies
Sequins
Seam Binding 
Art Bars from Derwent
lace from Crafty Ribbons
patterned paper from My Minds Eye and Cocoa Vanilla

@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @craftyribbons @mymindseyeinc @mayartsribbons

I’ll be back next Tuesday with a mini album full of sequins, cork and wood veneer… see you then, 
Laura
