Stamp Anniething: Scrumdiddlyumptious Grab & Go Box - Final Two Cards

Stamp Anniething released the Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory-inspired Scrumdiddlyumptious Grab and Go Box this fall during their Fall Retreat. Shortly after the retreat, Stamp Anniething offered this Grab & Go Box on a pre-order basis. I am sharing a series of eight mini-slimline cards this week that I made using the products from this Grab & Go Box. On November 30, I shared the first three cards, then on December 3, I shared three more, and today I will share the final two cards.

Although this Grab & Go is no longer available, there are others still available that you can make using these layouts and techniques! 


The first card features Veruca Salt and papers from the paper pack. The second card features Mike Teavee, the everlasting gobstopper stamp, papers from the paper pack, and one of the circle dies.

These mini-slimline cards are so easy to make! All you have to do is score the 6x6 paper at 3" and fold it in half! I added a piece of white bond paper to the inside right panel for space to write a message. All you need to do is decorate the front panel. I used dies, and papers from the Grab & Go Box. The only die that I used that's not in the box is the Banner Dies.

Scrappy Boy Stamps: Cute Girls Crafting - Merry Christmas

I've been going through my stamps to find ones that are not originally made to be a Christmas stamp and using them for my Christmas cards. Just like the one I used today from the Cute Girls Crafting stamp set by Scrappy Boy Stamps. I hand drew a couple of Christmas sweaters to add to the card to make it look like she is knitting the sweaters! Then I used the Merry and Bright paper pack to even make it look more like a Christmas card. So fun to do!!


Scrappy Boy Stamps products used:
  • Cute Girls Crafting stamp and die
  • Cute Girls Merry and Bright paper pack
  • Stitched Rectangle Dies
  • Wonky Stitched Rectangle Die
  • Sentiment from Nice List stamp set

I colored the stamp and hand drawn sweaters using Copic markers.

Copic Markers used:
Skin: E99, E34, E33, E53, E50
Cheeks: R81
Hair: E29, E37, E35, E31
Red: R24, R14, R22, R21
Green: YG17, YG13, YG03, YG01
Blue: B95, B93, B91

Sweater 1
Green: YG17, YG13, YG03, YG01
Blue: B95, B93, B91

Sweater 2
Red: R24, R14, R22, R21
Green: YG17, YG13, YG03, YG01
Blue: B95, B93, B91


This is an A2 top-folding card. Very simple to make using the Merry and Bright paper pack. 

Thank you for visiting today. I hope you use some of your non-holiday Scrappy Boy Stamps for your holiday cards! 


Have a wonderful day and a creative week!

Stamp Anniething: May Your Holiday Sparkle & Shine

Today I am sharing a holiday card I made for my design team day at Stamp Anniething. This is where I create a project using an older stamp. The stamp I used is called Patricia - Current Mood. I colored her in holiday colors to make this a festive card. It's fun to find stamps and dies in my stash that I can use for holiday cards.


Stamp Anniething products used:
  • Patricia - Current Mood stamp and outline die
  • Shaker Basics Winter Add On - Holiday Tag
  • Woodland Dies
  • Jelly Dots
  • Snowflake Sprinkles
  • Sentiment is from the Holidayville Bundle
I colored the stamp using Copic markers:

Hair: 100, C7, C5, C3, E27, E13

Red: R39, R29, R24, R22
Gray: C7, C5, C3



I colored the green sprigs using Distress Ink in Pine Needles. The blue background is Distress Inks in Broken China, Mermaid Lagoon, and Chipped Sapphire. For the snow, I sprinkled water onto the Distress Inks and also added paint splatters in white and blue.

I used the Holiday Tag for the frame for the stamp. I embossed it with a silvery white embossing powder to add some shine. 

To finish the card, I added the clay snowflakes and red jelly dots.



I hope you give this card a try! It's fun to create holiday cards using stamps and dies in your stash!

Conie Fong Art & Design: Believe in Yourself

I'm taking a break from holiday cards to make a special card for a young friend that is going through some confidence issues. We all have friends and family that need a little confidence boost from time to time. Believing in yourself means having faith in your own capabilities. It means believing that you CAN do something; that it is within your ability. This digital stamp called Bella Rose from Conie Fong Art & Design is perfect for my card. Her favorite color is purple so I had to color everything in purple!
I printed the digital stamp 3" tall and colored it with Copic markers.

Copic markers used:
Skin: E04, E11, E21, E00, E000
Cheeks: E93
Eye shadow: V01, V000
Lips: V12, V01
Hair: 100, C7, C5, C3
Purple: V17, V15, V12


I used a double stitched rectangular die to cut the front panel. I used a stamp positioner to add the sentiment. The sentiment is from Altenew's stamp set called Build-a-Flower Chrysanthemum. I then added a black mat, then a purple mat, and then adhered it to a top-folding A2 card base. To finish the card, I added a few purple rhinestones.

A beautiful stamp to color and can be used for many occasions. 


Thank you for stopping by. Have a creative week!
