Masculine Card Tutorial

Hello Crafters,

Today we are on the craftsneed blog with a quick and easy card tutorial for you based on the theme of the month. This is a fun and easy card that you can make utilising your dies and embossing folders.

Here’s a look at the card

Supplies used:

  • Nakshatra Designs – Master and Mister Collection 6×6
  • Embossing Folder- Kaisercraft Diamonds
  • Kaisercraft Decorative Rectangle Die- Fancy Frame
  • Spellbinders Matting Basics A Die
  • Sizzix Framelits- Stephanie Bernard Sentiment Collection
  • White Cardstock
  • Vintage Photo Distress Ink
  • Archival Ink Vermillion
  • Scoreboard
  • Foam Tape

You could use any dies and embossing folder that you have.

First, prepare your base. Score a 8″x 12″ cardstock at 6″ on the 12″ side. Fold and this makes your card base.

Next, cut a 6″ patterned paper at 5 1/2″ . Use another patterned paper at cut 1 1/2″ x 5 1/2″. Distress the edges of both these pieces using distress ink.



Emboss the above two pieces using any embossing folder.

Next, using assorted pattern papers, cut different sizes with your dies.

Once done, play around with your arrangement and begin adhering everything with foam tape. Most paper packs also come with some element sheets. So you can cut out some elements and use them as well to complete your card.

Hope you enjoyed this easy tutorial!

Layout- Beauty

Today we’ve created a mixed media layout using Itsy Bitsy Products. We’ve used the Jute 12×12 sheet as our base and incorporated the new Beaded Flowers Blush sent to us by Itsy Bitsy.

We were inspired by the mood board at Mixed Media Place. The colours, flowers, the beauty the festive spirit.


We have a video tutorial for this project as well:)!

Panda with a Cup

Today we are at The Through The Craftroom Door Blog with inspiration for this week’s ATG Challenge.

Our sponsor this week is

 Little Blue Button Stamps offering a $10 Prize voucher to their store. Here’s a little about them.
Hello! My name is Olga. I’m the owner and designer of Little Blue Button Stamps. All the designs you can see in our releases were illustrated by me.

All my life I loved to draw. I inherited this from my grandfather Ivan, who created a lot of illustrations for my and my sister’s classes, he did a lot of oil paintings, carvings, engravings and was very creative till the last breath.

I remember myself visiting their house and watching him drawing and painting. It was such a magical time for me!

I started to draw as I was little. Who didn’t?=) But this love never left me, it followed me for all these years.

I had no chance to attend any art school or faculty, I learn everything by myself.

I always get a lot of support from my family and friends. I used to draw Christmas and other holidays banners for our local village club, for my University faculty and for my friends.

Then I had to put some of my drawings for sale and now this is my main income since I live in a war zone of Ukraine and have no job.

My main supporters and inspiration are my family and my boyfriend Konstantin, who supports me in all my starts. Thanks to him I discovered digital pencil and he encouraged me to start this company.

Little Blue Button Stamps started its life in December 2012 as free digital stamps company “Digital designs by Olga”.

Later in spring 2013, it was reborn as Little Blue Button Stamps and first Design Team started its work.

In the summer of 2013, we started to produce rubber stamps which were pressed and packed by C.C.Designs company. In Fall 2014 we started to release clear stamps but due to some problems in my life, I had to shut down both clear and rubber and continue with digital stamps only.

Now I continue to create designs for digital stamps and printables by LBBS and clear stamps for Russian store by Tamara Startseva.

It is so hard to be a foreigner in this business, so I am so very thankful to each of my customers for support!

If you have any suggestion or you need sponsor or partner please contact us!

Steampunk for Father’s Day

Today we’ve created a mixed media rusty effect steampunk canvas. We were inspired by the More Than Words June Challenge- Father and Steampunk; Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge- Masculine; Stamplorations Mixed Media June Challenge.

When we think of Father- we think of Adventure and how a Father always teaches his children to be fearless, bold, independent and live life to the fullest. We were always taught to explore the unknown, challenge our limits and be fearless. This steampunk piece is everything that. A discovery, and explorations, a treasure uncovered; rusty yet valuable.

Our main embellishment for this piece is an altered tape runner :)! We opened up a used tape runner and altered that. We’ve added a picture of the tape runner as well.

Journal Page

Hello everyone,

We’re back today with a great tutorial and inspiration for the ongoing challenge at Mixed Media Mojo Mixed Media Mojo.

Today we’ll take you through the process of creating a journal page.

First prep the page with white gesso.

Next, use a stencil with modelling paste. We focused on the opposite corners.

We then used another stencil with the same paste for added texture.

Next, sprinkle some magicals and shaker powders and spritz them with water.

Then layers all your elements and stick them.


Mix a little black gesso with water and add splatter. Use a cap to add some circles on the page with the same gesso.

Here is the completed journal page.

Hope you’re inspired!

Looking forward to seeing your creations!
