International Scrapbook Day 2019 with Therm O Web

interNational Scrapbook Day 2019

Hello, Crafty Friends! Happy International Scrapbook Day! Today is a fun day for those of us who love papercrafts, whether it’s preserving precious photos and memories on scrapbook pages, or simply cutting and pasting pretty papers and embellishments together on cards, altered art, or journal pages. Hope you all have a few moments to get crafty today!


Earlier this week I shared one of two cards that I made for the Kindred Stamps collaboration on the Therm O Web blog, and today I’m back with the second. Once again, this is the cute The Great Outdoors stamp set, along with a basket weave background made with Therm O Web’s new iCraft Deco Foil Metallix Gel. This time, I used White Pearl Metallix on kraft cardstock for the reverse look to the fishing card.


I pulled in several elements from the first card to create a matching set, like the puffy white clouds, baker’s twine ties, and patterned paper strips. I made my own patterned paper with the duck image from the set, and for a bit of a different look, I placed the basket weave panel at an angle. The images were colored with Copic markers. Made my first attempt at camo patterning on my little sharp-shooter friend.


I’ve got the full step-by-step tutorial for creating these cards and the Metallix Gel backgrounds up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more. And there’s still time to enter our giveaway drawing for a $25 gift card to the Therm O Web e-store, so be sure to enter the rafflecopter drawing while you are there.

And if you’re looking for some fun and inspiration for International Scrapbook Day today, be sure to stop by the Therm O Web blog for a sketch challenge, ideas, inspiration, and another great giveaway. Details are HERE.

Thanks for stopping by! Happy scrapping!

Vintagy & Fabulous with Therm O Web and Art Impressions

art-impressions-logo

Hi sweet friends! Happy Friday!


This old spring chicken reminds me a bit of myself first thing in the morning. Definitely vintagy and fabulous…. but not too cheerful until I get some coffee down me! LOL. This adorable old gal is from Art Impressions’ new Spring Chicken stamp set, and we have the great pleasure of working with Art Impressions this week on the Therm O Web blog.


My friend, Paige, keeps chickens, so I must admit I had her in mind when I saw this set. Think this might be my birthday card for her this year. I think she’ll get a kick out of it.


Couldn’t resist that lovely cardstock sticker on the front mixed with the fun sentiments from the stamp set. It, and all the papers I used, are from Photo Play Paper’s new French Flea Market collection. They seem to go together hand in hand. I used some fun kraft photo corners from Therm O Web to dress up my card, and a bit of twine, too. And foam adhesive between layers for lots of depth and dimension. Image is colored with Zig Clean Color markers.


Art Impressions has released such a fun collections of stamps this spring, and we are really excited to share some of them to you! Therm O Web and AI have joined together to offer an amazing prize package, filled with stamps, adhesive, and some Deco Foil transfer sheets, too. Be sure to stop by the Therm O Web blog and enter our rafflecopter giveaway, open through the end of the day tomorrow.

And have you heard the news? Today Therm O Web is happy to announce the official release of the much anticipated Gina K™ Designs product line revealed in January at the Winter Creativation Event!

Gina K Giveaway (1)

honor of such an BIG and exciting product release we’re giving YOU a chance to win the entire collection of products! One of everything with a value of over $350!

Visions of Sugarplums Blog Hop- Day 3

visionsofsugarplums-announce-2016

Hi everyone, and welcome to day three of the 2016 Visions of Sugarplums Holiday Hop! I am so excited to be joining along with this year’s festivities! You should have arrived from Lisa Bzibziak‘s blog, but if you’ve just popped in, you can find the start of the hop at Choux Choux Paper Art.

audreypettit-alliscalmset
For my project today, I have made a matching card and tag set featuring some of my favorite winter wonderland creatures from Papertrey Ink. I don’t know about you, but I am just crazy about cute critter images and stamps…. and then throw in some fun little outfits, and I seriously can’t resist. Cutest things ever!

audreypettit-alliscalmset2

I pulled out some of my favorite dies to create both a rectangular and circular frame for the card and tag base, and then filled them with winter scenes. I cut gentle slopes from white cardstock for snowy banks, and tucked mountains and trees into the back drop. And for something different, I used patterned paper, instead of cardstock, for the base of each.

audreypettit-alliscalmset3
All the images were stamped onto watercolor paper, die cut with the matching dies, and then colored using Distress Inks. Lots of icy Stickles glitter glue was then added for some holiday sparkle and shine.

I’ve had so much fun playing along with the holiday hop, and now it’s your turn!

For my project, I have made a card that mixes and matches lots of my holiday favorites. I am a sucker for all things kraft related… makes me think of those brown paper packages tied up with string that we all dream about at the holidays. So of course I had to add in a few rustic, natural touches with kraft papers. And then I mixed in an eclectic batch of elements to create a sweet winter scene.

audreypettit-hellodeeriecard2
That adorable reindeer and sentiment come from a new-to-me stamp company called Darcie’s Heart & Home.  I stamped the images onto kraft and watercolor paper, and then colored with Zig Clean Color Markers. The patterned papers and trees are from Reverse Confetti. I used a small snowflake punch and cloud border die to create the look of fresh snowfall, all framed within my favorite stitched square dies.

AudreyPettit 28LilacLane HappyBirthdayCard2

AudreyPettit 28LilacLane ElephantBirthdayShakerTag
My sweet daughter just recently celebrated her 18th birthday, and I wanted to make something fun and festive to add to her presents. Perfect excuse for a shaker tag, right?

AudreyPettit 28LilacLane ElephantBirthdayShakerTag2

I really love that adorable elephant, and love this little garden scene for a spring birthday. I chose my daughter’s favorite colors for the palette, water coloring the images with Distress Inks, and picking a patterned paper to match. The background was inked and layered with punched clouds and a grassy border below. And the shaker? Filled with the most perfect 28 Lilac Lane embellishments.

AudreyPettit 28LilacLane ElephantBirthdayShakerTag3
Love that May’s embellishment kits and bottles come with such a fabulous assortment of goodies, all packed into one container. Adds a ton of fun to mix seed beads with sequins, and throw in a few flat-backed pearls, too. This beautiful combo is from the Minty Fresh Embellishment bottle and the New Leaf Embellishment Kit.

Hero Arts & BasicGrey Spice Market Blog Hop

Hero+BG_BlogHop

Hello everyone, and welcome to the Hero Arts & BasicGrey Spice Market Blog Hop! We are so glad that you could join us for this day of fun, filled with tons of inspiration and project ideas from both teams as we combine the beautiful Spice Market collection by BasicGrey with the matching cling and clear stamps by Hero Arts. We’ve got a fabulous line-up of designers ready to inspire you, and some amazing prizes to give away, too. It is great to see you all! I hope you enjoy!

AudreyPettit BG SpiceMarket FavoriteMemoriesCardYears ago, when I was first bitten by the papercrafting bug, I began as a stamper, so of course I absolutely adore having beautiful and perfectly coordinating stamps to go along with BasicGrey’s gorgeous paper collections. For my project, I created a fun all-occasion card using my favorite Spice Market papers and die cuts along with both the cling and clear matching stamp sets by Hero Arts. Love all the added detail the stamps give to my simple design.

AudreyPettit BG SpiceMarket FavoriteMemoriesCard3That beautiful background is made with the Spice Market Deco Background cling stamp. I stamped the image onto solid teal paper from the 6×6 Paper Pad using clear embossing ink, and heat embossed it with white powder. I then die cut the panel with a card front die that gave it those fun notched corners before stitching the piece down onto my patterned paper card base.

AudreyPettit BG SpiceMarket FavoriteMemoriesCard4The main focal flowers and fun little chevron arrow are from the Spice Market Best Time Ever clear stamp set. I inked the stamps with pretty Hero Arts shadow inks, using two colors for the flower heads and arrow,  and lightly spritzed them with water before stamping the images onto water color paper.  The arrow was fussy cut and added to the floral panel that I die cut with a notebook-edged die for interest.

AudreyPettit BG SpiceMarket FavoriteMemoriesCard2
Framed the cut with more pretty papers and wrapped the whole with twill trim. The fun border was made with another image from the Best Time Ever set, stamped once again onto water color paper and trimmed into a double-ended banner strip.

AudreyPettit BG SpiceMarket FavoriteMemoriesCard5

Now it’s time for me to send you on your way. But first, is anybody interested in some prizes?

SPC_HERO_PrizeHero Arts and BasicGrey will be giving away two complete Spice Market collections — including paper, embellishments, clear and cling stamps. The two winners will be randomly selected from all comments received on the participating designers’ blogs, so don’t forget to leave those comments.  The more comments you leave along the hop, the better your odds of winning!
