Chocolate Makes Everything Better

I started the card using a 110 lb cardstock and used the U Bridge Card Die Set from Stamp Anniething. It allows you to create this fun fold card simply and a photo of the dies are below.

U Bridge Card Die

This die cuts several pieces and score lines you will need to use by your bone folder down the scored edges to smooth and crisp folds.

I used the 6×6 coordinating paper pack and selected the coordinating paper to create the scene using the die and then gluing the patterned papers onto the base card previously cut out of the white cardstock with liquid glue.

Ever Since We Said I Do……

Scrappy Boy Design Team Project – May 2, 2022

I had so much fun making this card with my husband, Louie. We grew up watching the show that inspired this month’s release and we enjoyed reminiscing as I colored up the images with my Copic markers.

I tried to keep this card’s color palette simple… combining a soft pink with grayscale tones. The Copic Markers used on this project are photographed below. For her lips, I used R81.

This release is so much fun. There are two 6×8 stamp sets and coordinating outline dies, coordinating stencils and the cutest coordinating paper packs in both 6×6 and slimline. See to check out all Sean has to offer.

I used Scrappy Boy’s A2 Stitched Scalloped Edge Dies. They cut like butter and are powder-coated in Scrappy Boy Blue, which helps me tell my dies apart from others.

A2 Card featuring April 2022 Release, Everyone’s Favorite Red Head
Copic Markers Used to Color All Images

I started with a piece of white cardstock cut 5 1/4 x 4 and used the Hearts and Dots stencil, which is one of two coordinating stencils released this month. Because I wanted a card to reflect the nostalgia of black and white TV, I used a combination of black and gray to create dimension. I also shifted the stencil slightly and used the dirty blending brush (I didn’t add additional ink) and ink blended over the entire stencil. This created a slight gray shadow.

I then cut the stenciled piece in half in half (the long way), leaving one piece for another project. I then cut the remaining piece in half, long-wise and then one strip in half, leaving one fatter vertical piece and two thinner strips. I ink blended the edges lightly to give dimension.

I cut a piece of black cardstock 5 1/4 in x 4 in. I cut a piece of black and white polkadot 2 in x 4 in. from the coordinating paper pack. I glued the stenciled pieces to the black cardstock. I then glued the polkadot piece 1/2 in. from the bottom of the black cardstock. All the colored elements were popped up with foam tape. A flag was cut for the sentiment.

Zonk! & Splat! – Creative Masking Card

Exited to share this card where I took one image and used masking and creative color placement to creating a totally different look. In a FLASH, I created a SPIDER!!!

Here is a prior card using the same image without creative masking.

I used the the coordinating paper pack to create the primary background, as well as a skyline die from my stash. You can find the entire collection at

I stamped the image, masking the face and certain markings on the body. You can mask with post-it notes , tape or by simply wiping off from the areas of the stamp directly.

I colored the image with Copic Markers after lightly penciling in new details to include the eyes of the mask, 🕷suggestion of a spider on the belly and the classic lines on the suit, including his feet. I also took a piece of metallic thread to create a faux web. No metallic thread, look for a piece of Easter Grass or other thread.

  • Red – R20, R24, R29 and R39

Have A Super Birthday Featuring Scrappy Boy Stamps

I had so much fun making this card. I wanted it to be colorful, like I remember the comic pages used to be, tucked in between the other black and white pages of the Sunday paper. I wanted there to be lots of angles and layers of tone on tone colors behind my focal point, one of the cutest little super heroes you ever did see in a stamp set from

I was inspired by the divided blocks, white framing, the camera, filmstrip, reds, blues and showing movement on a page.

To make this A2 sized card, I used the following:

  • White Card Base – 4.25 in x 11 in, scored at 5.5 in
  • Red Card Panel – 5.5 in x 4.25 in
  • Black Card Panel- 5.25 in x 4 in
  • White Card Panel – 5 1/8 in x 3 7/8 in
  • Filmstrip diecut in black
  • Various Patterned Paper (use up scraps)
  • Scrap strips in black, red and white for your sentiment

I used Scrappy Boy Stamps’ new slimline comic strip builder frame and ink blended solid blocks of bright colors using distress ink pads in candy apple red, carved pumpkin, squeezed lemonade and peacock feathers on the white card panel. I then ink blended with the same color for a tone on tone with different patterns from a second stencil that Scrappy Boy Stamps released called Half-Tone Dots, as well as another stencil from my stash. The effect you are trying to achieve is movement and interest, so get creative.

I glued the ink-blended panel to the black panel, leaving a small frame around the edge. I then glued the black panel to the red panel and then the double-matted panel onto the card base.

I decorated the front by gluing a filmstrip diecut, after piecing patterned paper from the coordinating 6×6 paper pack called SuperHeros. This was adhered to the card front at an angle with double-stick foam tape for added dimension.

The super hero from the SUPER TEAM set was stamped with Momento Black Ink on Hammermill 110 lb white card stock, colored with Copic markers in the following combinations:

  • Red Suit – R20, R24, R29, R39
  • Yellow – Y13, Y15 and Y17
  • Flesh – E51, E30, E50
  • Cheeks -R20
  • Flames – Yellows and accented with red flicks using combos above.

Sentiment stamped with Black ink on a strip of white card stock treated with an anti-static powder bag in my stamp positioner. I then cleaned the stamp, leaving the strip in the positioner in place and stamped the sentiment over the original black impression with Versamark and then applied clear embossing powder and heat embossed the sentiment with my heat gun. I find that by using the positioner, I don’t have to fight with stray black embossing powder flecks and still gets a bold, shiny, black finish on my embossed images. I matted the sentiment with layers of black and red to tie everything together. I left the edges of the sentiment strip with strong, wonky angles for some playfulness. The card was finished off with embossed candy dots in black.
