***Links in this post are Affiliate Links used at no extra cost to you.

Hey friends!! Just popping in with some cards I created for the Kat Scrappiness Holiday Release!!! All products are available in the Kat Scrappiness Shop right now!!

My first card is a very simple card using the NEW Kat Scrappiness Santa's Helper Stamp Set and Santa's Helper Coordinating Dies

I paired this little elf with the little snowflake die cuts from the NEW The Night Before Christmas Window Scene Dies and the Snowflake Frame Backdrop Die.

I love these little elves and there are so many ways you could color them in for some FUN cards!!!

*********************************************************************************

My second card also features the Santa's Helper Stamp Set and Santa's Helper Coordinating Dies. I coordinated the dies this time with the tree from The Night Before Christmas Window Scene Dies and the NEW Reindeer Games 6x6 Paper Pad!!!

I colored in the tree and elf with Copic Markers and added it over the Stitched Dome Nesting Dies that were die cut from white cardstock, some snowflake paper from the new KS Reindeer 6x6 Paper Pad and some vellum.

I added a bit of glitter glue for "snow" on the tree and Silver Stickles to the toes of the elf's boots.


The sentiment is from the NEW Kat Scrappiness Reindeer Games Sentiments Stamp Set. I love this new Christmas Sentiment Set and will be using this for a lot of cards this year. 

******************************************************************************************

My third card I created for the new release Kat Scrappiness Release is a shaker card. I used the new A2 Full Front Shaker Card Packets with the Nativity Scene Die to make a simple scene.


I added sequins from the Silver Glitter Sequin Mix and the Silver Party Confetti Sequins for the shaker bits.


The new A2 Full Front Shaker Card Packets made making this shaker card a BREEZE!!!

Happy Thursday!! Welcome to my blog! Kat Scrappiness is pleased to be a super sponsor for the Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop for the Fall/Winter 2022.

Since Kat Scrappiness is a super sponsor, and will be giving away a $25.00 gift card to the store to a lucky entry at the Coffee Lovers Hop Main Post!!!

Here is the card I created with Kat Scrappiness Products for the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop on the Coffee Lovers Blog!!! The Kat Scrappiness Shop is a Super Sponsor this year!!! 

I started off my card by die creating a background with some Distress Spray Stains and Distress Mica Stains. I then die cut the Kat Scrappiness Stitched Scalloped Collage Frame out of white cardstock and adhered it over the top.

Next I used the Cuppa Love Shaker Dies to die cut a coffee cup from a piece of Gobble Gobble 6x6 Pattern Paper piece. I used some orange scraps to die cut a second cup and then cut those pieces off. I adhered the orange handle and the orange bottom to my tea cup. I added the cup to my card with foam adhesive.


I then die cut a tea bag out of white paper using the same dies, as well as a spoon from a scrap of mirror paper. I tucked the tea bag into the cup and created my orange tab with Distress Inks. The sugar cube was created using some white paper scraps that I covered in Glitter Glue.


I adhered the spoon to my card and a sentiment from the Kat Scrappiness Simple Sentiments Bundle that I had covered in Distress Inks. The orange is die cut from white cardstock using the Kat Scrappiness Mason Jar Shaker Dies. I colored it in with orange Copic Markers.

My last step was to use the Kat Scrappiness Perk Up Stamps and Dies to stamp and die cut "Sip Happens." This card was SO FUN TO CREATE and I love how it came out!!

The Kat's Meow Release from the Kat Scrappiness Store

***Affiliate Links are in this post at no extra cost to you.

Happy Sunday friends!! 

Just popping in with some cards for the NEW RELEASE over at the Kat Scrappiness Shop. It is all about cats and dogs!!! 


My first card I created I used the NEW Pawsome Cats 4x6 Stamp Set and the Pawsome Cats Coordinating Dies as the jump off for my card. I love this little sleeping kitty!!!


I used the Grass Add On Dies to create the grass the little cat is sleeping in. The fish bones in the thought balloon were created by using some glitter paste and the new Kat Scrappiness Fish Bones 6x6 Stencil. I used the Midnight Sky Pearl Mix for the little bubbles. 


The sentiment is from the Simple Sentiments Stamp and Die Bundle. I love the simple font used on this set!!

For my second card, I used the same Pawsome Cats Stamp and Coordinating Die Set, along with the NEW Pawsome Love Backdrop Die and the The Kats Meow 6x6 Paper.


I colored in my little kitty with Copic Markers and the little fishbones below are the NEW Kat Scrappiness Fish Bone Sprinkles. I had so much fun with these little fishbones that I used them on multiple cards. 


The cat is placed over a Stitched Nesting Hexagon Die and below is another sentiment from the Simple Sentiments Stamp and Die Bundle

My last card I created was to showcase some of the NEW products for Pawsome Dog.


Once again I started off using the new Pawsome Love Backdrop Die for my background and created a little dog house scene with the In the Dog House Dies.

I used a sentiment from the previously released Rainbow Bridge Stamp set and die cut it with the Rainbow Bridge Coordinating Dies

With a new release there is an Instagram Hop!!! A random hopper will receive a $25 GC to Kat Scrappiness!!! 

Well, that is all from me today. I want to thank you for taking the time to stop by. Have a FABULOUS day!!

Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #555

Hello friends!! Today I am on the blog with a NEW challenge at Cupcake Inspirations Challenges. For the next two weeks it is all about HALLOWEEN!! 


Below is the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge Badge for the next two weeks. (CIC555)


My image was generously donated by the sponsor for the #555 Challenge, The Whimsical Art Witch.

I had so much fun making this card!!! I first created my background using various Distress Sprays. I then printed this FABULOUS pumpkin and colored it in with Copic markers. 


I fussy cut the image out and adhered it to my background. I then used some Glossy Accents in various places around the pumpkin. 


My last step was to adhere some white enamel dots around the pumpkin and some tiny bat sequins over the moon. I LOVE how this came out!!!

That is all from me today. I hope that you join us for Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #555. I cannot wait to see what you create!!!

Thank you for stopping by. Have a FABULOUS Monday!!!
