Bitty Burst Turnabout Stamp with Aluminum Foil Tape Die Cut

So this was a fun idea that I haven't done in a while; Using aluminum foil tape with die cuts is an easy way to add some great silver accents to any card or project.

Watch the video here.


I used the Concord and 9th Bitty Burst turnabout stamp in in blues and grays. I have a couple videos showing how to setup a turnabout stamp if you like to watch those go here.... (links go to my Youtube channel)

For the hello sentiment I used the Hero Arts Hello stamp & cut set. I like these kinds of sets from Hero Arts. They are affordable and you get many stamps and coordinating a die, which is pretty awesome. So I cut the hello twice once in plain cardstock and another with the aluminum foil tape over the cardstock. The tape is exactly that, tape. So it has it's own adhesive and easily sticks to the cardstock. This foil tape is used for many purposes including HVAC work. I think we bought this for when we had to replace our water heater, I'm "borrowing" it until we need it again. lol Tim Holtz also has foil sheets, that would work just the same. I've linked to those below along with the other products I used.



I did end up cutting down the panel to a 4in square and the black card base to 4.25in square and that was just to make the proportions more appealing. This still can be shipped in a regular A2 sized envelope.

I white heat embossed the secondary sentiment on to a piece of Simon Says Stamp black cardstock and but an angled end on the right with the new scissors from Fiskars that I bought. Then I tied a bow around the top with some cotton twine.

Shaker Card using Simon Says Stamp July Monthly Card Kit

Welcome back everyone. I know in the video I say that I didn't have any  "good" yellow cardstock. Which is kind of true. But in the photos you will see that I used two different cardstocks as props. While they are not "bad" shades of yellow by any means they weren't what I wanted to match the ink of the suns. Ok, just had to throw that out there!

Watch the video here.



So this card colors were inspired by the Color Throwdown challenge (links below), which were yellow, gray, kraft and white. What a nice sunny color scheme! It's been hot here in the PNW well hot for us. I hope you all are comfortable where ever you are!



One thing about this card was that I did use one of the Tim Holtz Motiv papers, which was in a past monthly kit. You can still purchase the full 12x12 pack of this embossed paper! (link below)


The few Papertrey Ink products I used are; Heavy weight vellum and Clear cardstock

Deadpool Birthday Card



Watch the video here.

As you can see in the video the actual Deadpool portion of this card is super simple to make. I used my WRMK nesting circle dies in diameters of 3in, 2.75in and 1in. I added splatter to the background with Candied Apple distress ink and a Tim Holtz stencil.


The title was stamped with Ink Road's Block Alphas in black ink and the rest of the words are formed using a Brutus Monroe clickable letter stamp set. Which was really easy to for the words I wanted to use for the outside and inside of this card. I tore the paper around the sentiment and used a Xyron sticker maker to easily adhere them to the front. This card was definitely all about being quick and easy.
