Rainbow Shaker | Not 2 Shabby Stamps

Happy March! Did it crawl up on you too? I haven’t done my monthly planning NOR have I finished by February to do list! Let’s just say today is going to be busy! So let’s get to it!

Remember the cookie background I created using the Sprinkled with Love from Not 2 Shabby Stamp (I used it here and here), well let’s just say I’m pretty obsessed with it! So I decided to try it out in the new mini slimline size! I started by printing it out on heavy weight white cardstock, then ink blending with distress oxides (in Kitsch Flamingo, Festive Berries, Dried Marigold, Scattered Straw, Twisted Citron and Tumbled Glass). Then I trimmed it down with the stitched Mini Slimline Stacklets then I die cut the word ‘happy’ to create a shaker, I used alpha dies from CZ Designs ALL CAPS and the birthday is from Pretty Pink Posh scripted Happy Birthday (stacked 3 times). To create the shaker, I backed the diecut sheet using acetate, layered it with foam tape, and filled it with Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins Mix. Lastly I backed the shaker front with a Petite Scallop Mini Slimline Stacklets.

Thanks for stopping by the blog! Hope you have a great week!

Printing on Vellum | Not 2 Shabby Stamps

Happy Friday! It’s been a long week! Super excited for the weekend and fingers crossed it goes better than last weekend!

I recently discovered that you can print digital images on vellum! I haven’t experimented past printing, but I think this is going to open up a lot of possibilities on using digital stamps!

Last month I created a ‘stamped background’ using the Sprinkled with Love from Not 2 Shabby Stamp. I decided to make another ‘5 min card’ as I call them using the same background, but printed on vellum this time. After printing, I trimmed it down, backed it with some pattern paper and added a stacked die cut sentiment. Lastly I added some clay confetti.

Have you tried printing on vellum? Would love to see your cards, be sure to tag me on Instagram (@everydayengineered)!

Happy Hump Day! Welcome to the #racismisaviruscardhop! Please head over to naushabuloushandmade on Instagram to hop along.

I made a card inspired by my time in Vietnam (I need to share pictures of that, one day!)

I ink blended an A2 card panel with my Taylored Expression blending brushes and fired brick distress oxide ink. The I die cut the outline of the flower and leaf using the Layered Rose Die Set from Altenew. I die cut the details, along with the Thinking of You Script Die from golden glitter paper. I layered the die cut card front and added a LOT of foam tape to create the shaker window. Filled it with some older Pretty Pink Posh star sequins. Finished off my adding the glitter die cuts and some gold jewels.

Purple Peonies | Eating Disorder Awareness Hop

If you didn’t come here from my Instgram, make sure to head over there for a blog hope AND make sure to check out Candice’s post to see more details on the hop!

Before getting into the details of the card I wanted to take a minute to share some facts about Eating disorders, as that’s the point of this hop.

Eating Disorders are complex mental illnesses with physical manifestations. The myths and misconceptions surrounding these illnesses often serve to perpetuate the stigma that prevents so many folks from receiving life-saving support and treatment, so today we’re hopping along to raise awareness and hope for these very underserved (but prevalent) disorders.

Did you know? Many people with eating disorders don’t lose weight, and may actually gain weight as a result of their disorder.

To make this card, I started by stamping and coloring the largest image from Newtons Nook Designs Peony Blooms stamp set. I used copics in the follow combination : V12-15-17 and YG 01-03-06. Then I fussy cut it or you can use the coordinating die.

I embossed the Lattice Stencil from Pretty Pink Posh to create the background for the card. Then I added a rectangle scallop die cut, also from Pretty Pink Posh cut from purple paper. Lastly I added a sentiment from the simple sentiments stamp set on a black strip cut from the mama elephant quick strips die cut.

Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to head over to Instagram to check out the hop!
