Little Houses Scrapbook.com Release

November 30, 2019 0 Comments
Let the magic of the holiday season fill you with warmth, joy, and unbelievably creative ideas!.

Hello and welcome to my blog! My name is Saundra and I am a cardmaker. I love to create and hope you find a bit of inspiration while you are here.

Today I am sharing a small Christmas village featuring a new cut file from Scrapbook.com

 Affiliate links have been used where applicable. It does not cost you extra when you click on them but I do get a small compensation. )

Scrapbook.com released another new cut file called Little Houses.  Here is what included:

  • 1 set of digital files for a tall house
  • 1 set of digital files for a short house
  • 1 set of digital files for a short house with a chimney
  • 1 set of digital files to customize your own house

This is a look at the tall house. 



The cut file come with strings of lights, and a wreath that you can use to embellish your house. For my tall house I used Nuvo Crystal Drops in Party Pink to create my lights. Since it was going on green cardstock it dried more of a red color. I added a gold glitter star to the roof and tried a bow with some baker's twine for the wreath. 


This is a look at the little house.


I used more of that Santa's Squad paper and embellished this hour with some Nuvo Crystal Drops in Blue Babe. I added a bow to the wreath an a heart to the door.

For both houses I added some Lawn Fawn Vellum behind the window. These houses would be cute with some battery operated tea lights inside them.

A few things that you will need to help put these houses together:

1. A digital cutting machine (I used a Silhouette Cameo)
2. A score board if you machine does not have a scoring blade.
3. A bone folder for scoring your folds.
4. A liquid glue ( I used Lawn Fawn Glue Tube)


This was just my initial try at these houses. They came together super fast and easy. I hope to add a few more houses and create a cute little village in my entry way.

Head on over to Scrapbook.com and check out this new file.

Festive Christmas Tree ~ Scrapbook.com Borders

November 27, 2019 2 Comments
Using cut files in unexpected ways is fun and expands your creativity!

Hello and welcome to my blog! My name is Saundra and I am a cardmaker. I love to create and hope you find a bit of inspiration while you are here.

Today I am sharing a card featuring a new cut file from Scrapbook.com

Affiliate links have been used where applicable. It does not cost you extra when you click on them but I do get a small compensation. )

The cut file I am featuring is called Borders. It is a bundle of 7 different designs that can be used for scrapbooking and card making. It is a cut file so you will need a digital cutting machine. I use a Silhouette Cameo that I have had for years.


To begin, I cut a tree shape using the Advent Tree cut file. I stretched it to get a taller skinny tree. This was my base. I cut several of the scallop borders using some patterned paper from my stash.

The scallops were scored about an 1/8th of an inch from the straight edge. I began layering them onto the tree base adding tiny drops of glue from my Lawn Fawn Glue Tube. I folded each layer and added some Double Sided Adhesive Foam Rounds to create some dimension.


I created my card base to measure 4"x 9.5". I heat embossed a sentiment from Scrapbook.com Big and Bold Christmas using Versamark Ink, Hero Arts White Embossing Powder, and Wagner Heat Tool onto some patterned paper. Once cool, I added it to my card base

My tree was adhered to the card panel using Double Sided Adhesive and craft foam to give it some lift. For a final touch I added a star  cut from Silver Glitter Cardstock.

I love the way this came together!


There are so many ways to use the new Borders Cut File

Today I am sharing another card featuring a new cut file from Scrapbook.com

Affiliate links have been used where applicable. It does not cost you extra when you click on them but I do get a small compensation. )

This card came together quickly with the help of my Silhouette Cameo and the card designs that are included in the Bee Happy Bundle.


This set of cut files are perfect for card makers and scrapbookers alike.

Foe my card I started with the hexagon card base and added a smaller hexagon shape that I resize to be slightly smaller than the card base. I popped this layer up with some foam tape. 

I cut some smaller hexagons out of some Doodlebug Designs Flea Market design paper. I really love this paper pad and have hoarded it.

The hexagons were adhered with some Lawn Fun Glue and some Scrapbook.com Double Sided Adhesive

February 14 ~ Free Cut File from Scrapbook.com

November 19, 2019 0 Comments
A calendar cut file that can be customized for any month , year, holiday. That is what I am sharing with you today!

Hello and welcome to my blog! My name is Saundra and I am a cardmaker. I love to create and hope you find a bit of inspiration while you are here.

Today's card features a new cut file from Scrapbook.com and it is FREE!

Affiliate links have been used where applicable. It does not cost you extra when you click on them but I do get a small compensation. )

 Scrapbook.com had a free cut file called Calendar. It features a full calendar that you can customize for any time of year. I decided to use this cut file and create a Valentine's card.

I sized the cut file using my Silhouette Cameo software and cut every thing out with my Silhouette Cameo. Now, I had to down size the file quite a bit for my 4.25" x 5.5" card. Those little numbers were a little hard to keep track of but I managed. Of course, you don't have to make something as small as y card. This file would be great to use on a scrapbook page or even cut out of vinyl. There are so many possibilities!


I chose some patterned paper from my stash and using the Lawn Fawn Glue Tube I glued down my calendar, numbers, and month title.I highlighted the 14th with a heart cut from Kaisercraft Candy Glitter Cardstock and popped it up with some Scrapbook.com Adhesive Foam Rounds.

My sentiment was stamped onto a banner I diecut using Lawn Fawn Lawn Cuts Everyday Sentiment Banner Dies. It was stamped with Scrapbook.com Premium Hybrid Ink. I attached it to my card using more liquid glue.


I attached the card front to my card base using some Scrapbook.com Double Sided Adhesive and some craft foam.

Make sure to head on over to Scrapbook.com to grab this Calendar freebie.


Thank your stopping in today. I will be back very soon with another project!!

My Whole Heart ~ Scrabook.com

Hello and welcome to my blog! My name is Saundra and I am a cardmaker. I love to create and hope you find a bit of inspiration while you are here.

Today I am sharing a super simple and relatively fast card.

Affiliate links have been used where applicable. It does not cost you extra when you click on them but I do get a small compensation. )

This card was created with the a new cut file called My Whole Heart from Scrapbook .com. This is a brand new file filled with easy card designs, scrapbook layout designs, and planner pages. 

As I said, I kept my card simple and used one of the card cut files. I cut my front panel from Lawn Fawn Ground Coffee Cardstock using the card cut file and my Silhouette Cameo.

Once my card from was cut I ran it through my Big Shot with an old embossing folder to give the panel some texture. I set that aside and moved on to some ink blending.

I used a piece of Neenah Solar White Cardstock and ink blended my background with some Distress Oxide inks in the following colors: Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Abandoned Coral, Candied Apple, Aged Mahogany


I attached my blended background to my embossed card panel with some Clear Double Sided Adhesive. I added a piece of Brown Baker's Twine and tied it in a bow. 

For a little more dimension I added a piece of craft foam to the back of the panel with the same adhesive and added the panel to the card base.

For a bit of sparkle I added some Clear Wink of Stella to my letters. That is hard to see in the phots but I promise it is there!

Here's a look at the new My Whole Heart cut file from Scrapbook .com

December ~ Scrapbook.com

Cut files can crate a holiday inspired card.


Hello and welcome to my blog! My name is Saundra and I am a cardmaker. I love to create and hope you find a bit of inspiration while you are here.

Today's card features a new cut file called December from Scrapbook.com


Scrapbook .com has been releasing wonderful new cut files. I am having so much fun playing with them!

For today's card I went for a classic holiday look. I pulled out some papers from the Tim Holtz ideology Christmas pad and got to creating. 



I sized the December vertical pocket card included in the December Cut File to fit an A2 (4.25"x5.5")  card base. I used my Silhouette Cameo software to get just the right size. I cut this out using the plaid designer paper.  I, also, created a backer for my December title and cut it out using Lawn Fawn Black Licorice cardstock so that the December would show up.  Black Soot Distress Ink and a Sponge Dauber were used to ink all of the edges.

Before mounting the designer papers onto my card base I added a piece of velvet ribbon I had in stash. I added some fun foam to the back of my patterned papers using some Scrapbook.com Double-Sided Adhesive. 



Next I added my"25" (a little sneak of an upcoming cut file) that was cut out 3 times out of black cardstock and once out of red glittered cardstock from Lawn Fawn's Holiday Sparkle Pack. I stacked these together with some Lawn Fawn Liquid Glue and popped them onto my card.



For my sentiment I used a Tim Holtzidea-ology Christimastime Flashcard that said holiday. To that I stamped the word Happy in some Versafine Clair Nocturne ink and added some clear embossing powder from Ranger. I heat set it with my Wagner Heat Gun. Once it cooled I added some Black Soot Distress Ink to the edges and attached it to my card. 



Lastly, I added a snowflake charm from Tim Holtz ideology Snowflake Adornments with a bit of Lawn Fawn Black Tie Baker's Twine and my card was complete.



There are some many possibilities when using these files! Be sure to check out all the new cut files that Scrapbook.com has to offer!

I'll be back soon with another project.

Color Me Happy ~ Scrapbook.com

A bit of mixed media and a cut file makes for a super fast and fun card!

Hello and welcome to my blog! My name is Saundra and I am a cardmaker. I love to create and hope you find a bit of inspiration while you are here.

Today's card features a new cut file called Color Me Happy from Scrapbook.com


Affiliate links have been used where applicable. It does not cost you extra when you click on them but I do get a small compensation. )

This card came together quite quickly if you take out the drying time!

To get started I used Distress Watercolor Cardstock and Distress Oxide Inks to create a background for my die cut.

I splattered and and created color splotches on my background using the following colors:


While my background was drying I used my Silhouette Cameo and the new Scrapbook.com Color Me Happy cut file to create my focal point for my card. I mixed the title  fit an A2 card (4.25"x5.5").

I cut the title a total of 4 times and stacked the layers together with some liquid adhesive. I added the title to center of my card.

I added my panel to a black cardstock base with some Scrapbook.com Clear Double Sided Adhesive

With that adhered, I thought the card could use just a little something more so I added some Ranger Glossy Accents to the letters to give it a nice shine. 


If you have never shopped at Scrapbook-com take a moment to check out the wonderful selection. You will not be disappointed!

I hope your day is filled with happiness!

Masculine Love You ~ Altenew

October 25, 2019 0 Comments
A masculine card made with simple inking techniques allowed this design come to life.

Hello and welcome to my blog! My name is Saundra and I am a cardmaker. I love to create and hope you find a bit of inspiration while you are here.

Although I intended this card to be for a masculine person it could easily be tweaked to give it a more feminine flair.


Affiliate links have been used where applicable. It does not cost you extra when you click on them but I do get a small compensation. )

Here is a list of supplies used to create this card:




Inks:


To begin I created a background using the Classy Stripes Stencil and Arctic ink. I wanted to keep the center light so I began inking at the edges and lightened the pressure as I went towards the center.

I used my favorite Leaf Canopy stamps with Firebrick and Olive Ink. The ink was applied randomly on the stamp and spritzed with clear water then stamped onto the cardstock. I repeated this step until I was happy with the color. I really love the texture that was achieved.


The leaves were die cut with the Leaf Copy Dies and mounted onto my stenciled background with a combination of glue and foam adhesive. 

Finally, the sentiment was stamped from the Painted Greetings stamps and heat embossed. 
The only embellishment needed was some splatter from Altenew Jet Black Ink Spray and my card is finished!

So, what do you think? Would you give this card to your favorite masculine friend?

Thanks for joining me today!

Always Believe ~ Altenew

Simple stamping and an encouraging messages makes for a wonderful card.

Hello and welcome to my blog! My name is Saundra and I am a card maker. I love to create and hope you find a bit of inspiration while you are here.

Well friends, it has been a while since I have posted anything. Life got a little crazy and I was kind of lost for a little while. I hope to be more consistent in posting from now on.

For today's card I kept things simple. I think this card would be an easy one to mass produce and by changing the greeting and color scheme you would have a nice set of cards.
 Let's have a closer look!


Supplies are listed below. Please feel free to skip to the bottom to see what was used. Affiliate links have been used where applicable. It does not cost you extra when you click on them but I do get a small compensation. )

This is almost a one layer card, except I used a card stock panel and added it to card base.

For this card I started by stamping the base flower from Altenew's Sophisticated Wreath stamps. I chose the lightest shade of purple for the first layer. I created a few masks so that I could stamp across the card panel. To do this quickly I chose several sheets of Post Its and stamped my image once. I fussy-cut the image once by keeping all the layers of Post its together. The result was that I had several masks from one stamping.

I continued stamping my base layer across the top and bottom of the card panel. Using my masks I stamped the second layer with the darker ink.


Instead of using the last layer for the flower centers I used a Versmarker to add sticky ink and gold embossing powder.  I heat set it and moved on to the sentiment.

I chose to do some selective stamping for my sentiment. I heat embossed the Wonderful with gold embossing powder and stamped the rest of the sentiment in Deep Iris Ink.

Once all of my stamping and heat embossing was complete, I added my card panel to my card base.

Super simple but elegant!


For this card I used the following supplies:


Versamarker
