Gingerbread tags

Hi everyone this is Mona back this time featuring Kat Scrappiness brand new  Design a Gingerbread Man Die  and used many of Tim Holtz DISTRESS OXIDE inks Cracked Pistachio , Wilted Violets , Broken China ,Faded JeansFired BrickIced Spruce are the colours I used to make my backgrounds.
I first started out by die cutting 3 of the gingerbread men using 3 different cardstock s I had in my paper stash and 3 tags with a die cut I had in my stash.
This is where I played around with my distress oxide inks making different colour backgrounds. I then took a old paint brush dipped it in water and let water drops fall on the tags. I proceeded by using different stencils and same inks giving it even more texture and then a little bit of stamping using lawn Fawn Jet Blackand for the final touches on my tags I used the same black to distress the edges. The greetings were die cut ,every thing was glued into place and attached some ribbons from my stash.
I hope you enjoyed this mini tutorial. Thanks for stopping by, hope to see you again soon!

Hang In There


Hi everyone this is Mona back with a fun card featuring two ok Kat Scrappiness brand new Die and a  stamp set from your next stamp.
I started by cutting my card base in this picture you see it in white 41/4 x 51/2 , but I later change my mind and change it to black. I proceeded by cutting my front panel with dole sided pattern paper with the Kat Scrappiness Rectangle Stitched Die the largest of the set. I then placed my Pop out Die where I wanted the whole and die cut it and covered the back of the hole with the same cardstock. Now to give it the torn look I decided to use my Tim Holtz distressing tool around the  picks of the hole.
Now for the fun part stamping , colouring and fussy cutting all my cats and my sentiment.
Here I placed everything where I wanted it. But as you will see in my final picture I decided to cut sentiment in half,, leaving Hang in there on the front and stay pawsitive in the inside of the card. This completes my card for today.

Eat Drink & Be Scary

Hi everyone this is Mona back with a cute journal page featuring Kat Scrappiness brand new stamp and die called Toils &Trouble Layered stamp set.
I started out by putting a thin layer of gesso all over my page . Oh! By the way this is in my Dylusion Creative Journal . Once my gesso was dry I used a brick stencil from my stash and my Dream weaver Stencil brush to add Tim Holtz Iced Spruced Distress Oxide to imitate the bricks.
Once my bricks were dry, I used the same stencil brush and a wood grain stencil this time using Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Oxide to make the floor.
While all my background is drying I used the toils and trouble stamp set and my Tim Holtz Stamp platform to stamp 3 cats in 3 shades of grey then I used the matching Die to cut them out.
Here I did the same thing using the skull stamp one in 3 shades of brown and the other using 3 shades of green. I also Die cut those using the matching die.
Sorry for my messy desk ☺️. This is where I drew 3 light bulbs using a pencil and when I was satisfied I used a black sharpie to trace them. I also used a yellow marker to colour the bulb and a grey for the metal part of it. I then glued everything in place using Ranger Multi Medium. Once everything was glued in place I added the twine for the suspended shelf and also for the light bulbs. For the finishing touch, I used my Faber Castell big brush markers to do all the shading and a white gel pen for the highlights.
This concludes my mini tutorial,I hope you enjoyed it. Thanks a lot for stopping by,hope to see you again very soon.

Mr. bossy Pants

Hi everyone this is Mona back with a fun card featuring one Kat Scrappiness new die set ... I must say this is one of my favourite, it's called Never Ending Rectangle Die Set. I really love the look of all those layers it makes me happy 😊
I started out my card by cutting out my card base 51/2"x41/4". I picked three my paper that I wanted to layer and die cut all my rectangles , 9 of them to be more specific starting with the largest one. I really love that colour combination. I proceeded by adhering all my layers using my atg gun which I needed to refill using 1/4" Acid free ATG tape.
I adhered all the layers except the top one so I could stamp more easily using the giraffe from my Gerda Steiner stamp set called Go Wild  and my Jet Black ink from Lawn Fawn. The sentiment is from a stamp set that Inhad in my stash. I then used my alcohol markers to colour my giraffe and adhered it to the top of the card.
This completes my card for today, thanks for stopping by and see you again soon. I have included the link to Kat Scrappiness store to be able to check out all her new supplies she has in the store.

Crafting Time

Hello everyone this is Mona back with a card featuring  Kat Scrappiness brand new Never Ending Rectangle Dies and a fun stamp from Prima called, Valentina Prima Doll.
I first started by selecting the paper I wanted and took the largest rectangle from the  Never Ending Rectangle Die Set and then then skipped one and took the following size and placed them carefully on my paper securing them with washi tape to make sure it wouldn't move when I pass it in my Vagabond. This made my frame for my card, I proceeded by adhering the frame to my card base which is 4 1/4"x 5 1/2 " .
Now for the fun part I stamped Valentina twice, once on white cardstock and once on patterned paper with Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink . I went on to colour the skin and hair on my doll and fussy cut the dress from the patterned paper.  Once that was complete I added a sentiment called Craft Today from Art Impressions and added back cardstock to mat it. For the finishing touch I added Kat's beautiful sequins called Pink Wood grain sequins.
