Card for Crafty Friends with Laura Sterckx

Hello, crafty friends!

Our friend, Laura Sterckx, from MakingCardsIsFun.com recently made a super cute card featuring our brand new Crafty Companion stamps and coordinating dies! How exciting is that!?

She even filmed a video tutorial on how she made this adorable card. You can watch it below!

Laura started out by stamping a few images from the craft-filled set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then coloured them with some Copics. They were then cut out with their coordinating dies.

Next, using some beautiful patterned paper, strips were cut, and adhered to the cardbase. The images were then stuck down with foam squares, onto a white die cut circle. A pink banner was then placed on top, and lastly, for some sparkle, some Nuvo drops! What a lovely card, thank you Laura! 💖

And that's it for today's card, be sure to visit Laura's blog and YouTube channel for more crafty fun! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Glittery Mirror Stamped Card

Hello crafty friends! It's Angie, here. I'm back with another card and video, this time featuring some mirror stamping, plus, a sneak peek of our Sparkle Bright set! 💖

Be sure to watch the video tutorial below, it shows how this card was made! There's also a supply list at the end of this post for all the products used.

Before I started the card, I knew I wanted to do some mirror stamping with a pastel/light coloured theme. For this technique, I like to use Versafine Onyx Black, as it's perfect for detail.

To start the card, I used a solid, clear stamp, which was large enough to fit another stamp on it, and placed it into the corner of a Mini MISTI. I then placed a unicorn stamp on top of it and stamped the image onto the solid stamp, twice, to get it nice and juicy. Then working quickly, I placed in some marker friendly paper and stamped as usual, stamping an original unicorn on the front, and also transferring the reverse image on the back of the paper.


Then, it was time to colour them with markers, and die cut them. Next, it was easy to flip the reverse unicorn over and line the die up with the original on the back. That way, you don't have to use a light and guess where the image is.

For this card, I thought it'd be cute to create a little banner, and have a little polkadot panel showing through. Next, it was time to cut out some strips of white, woodgrain cardstock, and adhere some baker's twine and 3D foam squares, for extra dimension. For the final touches, I added some sparkle with a glitter pen and sequins! :)
