Sympathy Cards

Welcome back and Nancy, here.  Sympathy cards are some of the toughest occasions to create cards for but no doubt these cards are meaningful to the recipient with personalized messages in the card of sympathy, support, and wonderful memories of the person who passed away.

Today, I'm sharing a  handmade sympathy card that is actually versatile enough to use for many other occasions with the Laserowe Love Chipboard - Crosses With FlowersLaserowe Love Chipboard - Crosses With Flowers set has beautiful crosses and gorgeous lilies that are commonly used to make Easter cards, Sympathy cards, Confirmation or Baptism cards. 



The computer-generated message on the front of one card was printed and transfer gold foil sheet was used to color the message.  I used the NUVO Classic Gold embossing powder on the other card.   I already had an embossing folder with these sunrays but you can use just about any embossing background folder that you have.  I used gold foil for the top layer of the cross and painted the cross behind it with Prima Marketing Metallique Rich Copper wax and adhered the entire layers with the Beacon 3-in-1 Advance glue.  I used white paint for the lillies and used my light green Copic Marker for the center of the lillies. I added a butterfly that was embossed with gold glitter.  


It was so much meaningful for me to make these sympathy cards for them.  My cards and projects are always posted on Saturday.  Keep watching and thank you so much for those wonderful comments as well as suggestions. 

Enjoy and Happy Crafting!

Wander and Explore Panel

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today with lots of fun products from the store.  Please visit the store for all the fun products I've used today.



I found some left over wood panels in a local craft store after the holidays and knew they would work for a mixed media project.



I began by adding gesso to the panel.  Once dry, I sprayed Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Spray Inks in Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon and Iced Spruce across the panel.  Heat set each color, then use Tim Holtz Dotted Layering Stencil with modeling paste as well as Tim Holtz Slate Layering Stencil with modeling paste to add dimension.  Allow to dry thoroughly.


Using a script stamp with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, stamp around the panel.


Then go to town with assorted embellishment, adding them around the panel.  Once all the elements are down, add Prima Art Stones randomly about the panel.


Finish the panel by adding die cut words from Sizzix Thinlits, Shadow #3.  Die cut each from Bazzill Marshmallow and Licorice Twist cardstocks.  Place them randomly around the panel.

Birthday Steampuck Card

Welcome back and hope you are having a wonderful start for the new year.  I have a few male birthday cards to make right now and a nice change from making Christmas cards for the past few months. If you are looking for vintage parts for your vintage steam puck projects, The Rubber Buggy on-line store carries the supplies you will need from Prima Marketing, Tim Holtz, etc.  The Rubber Buggy carries these major name-brand craft supplies with fast delivery and wonderful customer services.


Inside of card using ole Sizzix Thinlit Gear Head die very similar to Memory Box Dies Gear Assembly.  I die cut and then used my scissors to cut out the die part that I want on the inside of the card.  I typed out the sentiments and sponged on the Ranger Distress Antique Linen and Ranger Walnut Stain ink around the edges for the antique look.
Sizzix 3D Tim Holtz Mechanic Embossing Folder 

I had a sheet in my piling stash of old paper of gold mirror foil and embossed it with the Sizzix 3D Tim Holtz Mechanic Embossing Folder.  I used a brush to apply the Prima Marketing Finnabair Black Gesso over the entire sheet.  If you use a brush and tap it on, you will get more of a rustic appearance rather than brushing it smoothly.    I applied the Prima Marketing Metallique Aged Brass, Rich Copper, Ginger Sparks and Red Amber with some Ranger Dauber Black Soot.  Occasionally, I used a dry wipe to spread or remove any excess colors.

I cut out the edges of the embossed section before gluing and adding the gears that were also covered with black gesso and various colors of the same Prima Marketing Metallique waxes. I love using the Prima Marketing waxes since it provides a nice metallic sheen on this paper along with the Prima Marketing Art Alchemy Ginger Sparks.   I just use my fingers to smear these waxes and Sparks on the paper and gears.   I first applied the black gesso in thPrima Marketing Finnabair Art Basic Mixed Media Essentials Gesso Sets on the gears and screws and let dry before applying the waxes and Sparks.

I added the brown baker twine and then used a hot glue gun for the Tim Holtz Idea-ology Metal Word Bands.  I smeared some Prima Marketing waxes on the metal word bands.  

I cut out some patterned brown paper and distress the one edge with my fingers and used a pencil to draw the stitches.  I applied the Ranger Antique Linen to the edges for a distress look.  


I sponged on the Ranger Distress Antique Linen ink to the stamped sentiment and number 41st.  



I had so much fun making these cards and hope you will too.  So have fun crafting this weekend with these products.   My cards and projects are always posted on Saturday.  Keep watching and thank you so much for those wonderful comments as well as suggestions. 

Enjoy and Happy Crafting!

3D Floral Card

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today with lots of fun products from the store.  Please visit the store for all the fun products I've used today.




Cut Bazzill Wax Lips cardstock 6" x 12", then use Scor-Pal to score at 3" and 6".


Fold on the 3" score, folding inwards to create a stand up card.


Using 2 sheets of pattern paper from the Love Letters paper pack from the Mintay pattern paper collection, I adhered one to the scored section to create the base layer.  Next, I fussy cut the flowers from the second sheet as I wanted to create a 3D effect with the flowers.  Use Heartfelt Creations Flower Shaping Essentials to form the flowers.


Lightly ink the flowers with Tea Dye Distress Ink using an Ink Blending Tool.


Place the fussy cut flowers on the base layer with Scrapbook Adhesives 3D Foam Squares.  For more dimension, I doubled the squares.


Die cut the 2 sets of circles using Lawn Fawn Small Circle Dies and Lawn Fawn Large Circle Dies.  On the smaller circles stamp phrases from Art Impressions and 49th and Market using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

Graphic 45 Fashion Forward - May
My granddaughter who got married in August just announced that she is now pregnant and may be having their baby around my birthday in September.  We will now be great grandparents-WOW!


I added the Wild Orchid mulberry flowers with the pearls and always ribbons on most of my cards.  .  I used a hot glue gun to made my lace bow this time and added a Wild Orchid Craft 10mm rose in the center.  I added a Tim Holtz Gum Drop heart to the top corner of the card and colored it with a pink Copic Marker after adhering to the card with Beacon 3-in-1 Advanced glue.

I added a frame around the image using the  Graphic 45 Fashion Forward Pattern and Solid Paper and die cut out the Congratulations in gold and black cardstock.  I adhered the gold on top of the black die cut to add dimension.

I typed out the sentiment and used the Graphic 45 Fashion Forward left over pieces around the sentiment.  I stamped the little angel from an ole Penny Black stamp from The Rubber Buggy and colored the baby with Copic Markers.  I cut the angel using my new Brothers Scan and Cut 125 machine which does a great job in cutting many of my stamp images like this one.
