Kat Scrapppiness Design Team Project: Sending Sweet Wishes

There are so many different options for the new Crafters Essentials 1 die set.  For today’s project, I wanted to do a shaker card and use the fun, stitched window panel that is included in the set.  I still have a thing for purple, so there’s lots of it!  I was actually inspired by the colors in the sequins I used to fill the shaker.

CutCardstock Project: Sending Smiles

Creating a scene on the front of a card is fun and easy to do when you have die cuts to help you out.  For today’s project, featured on the CutCardstock blog, I thought there would be no better way to showcase the Pop Tone card stock than with this method.

For my scene, I used these sun ray and hillside dies along with Lemon Drop and Gumdrop Green Pop Tone card stock.  Everything was adhered with foam tape onto a note card I created using Banana Split card stock–I love those names!


For the animals, I stamped them all together with my stamp platform on to some Cougar White Super Smooth card stock.  I colored them with Copics, then cut them out using their coordinating dies.



I wanted to frame two of the animals with a heart, so I created a frame using two nesting heart dies along with some Orange Fizz Pop Tone card stock.


Lots of bright color and texture make this card a cheerful greeting to send to a friend.
