Art Deco Tag by Jearise

I love the Art Deco period but have trouble doing crafts that embody that time period of style so I challenged myself with this project.

I stamped the image on white card stock and then went to work adding Tim Holtz Distress Inks and using my alcohol markers. I like the way the frame around the woman pops and there is the vintage look I was going for so I am happy with the way this turned out.

Making of the tag:

1. Stamped image on X press blending card stock
2. Colored various parts of image with alcohol markers
3. Dab on different shaded of Tim Holtz Distress Ink
4. Spritz with water and let the colors blend
5. Add your bling! and adhere to your tag.

Products from Cutters Creek store are listed here:

Tim Holz distress ink pads in various colors

Zig 2 way glue pen

rhinestones (in flowers)

X Press Blending Paper for Copic markers

Enjoy and a question for you... Are you into Art Deco?

Welcome Baby Card by Jearise

There are no up and coming babies that I know of in my family but I thought this Noah's ark stamp I have is so cute that I really needed to finally use it.

I first heat embossed the stamp with WOW embossing powder then I used my alcohol markers to color the stamp. I added some fun details such as clear glitter to the sheep and Noah's beard plus flocking to the waves. I brought everything together by layering my card front and adding a little yellow and white twine bow.

Items from Cutter's Creek Store

Hope your day is filled with rainbows and sunshine. Jearise :)

Just A Note To Say….by Fran


I tried a new technique (for me) on my card.  I’ve been wanting to use embossing paste for a while now and thought this was as good as time as any.  I used a stencil called Garden Whimsy Branch by Memory Box.  And the embossing paste is by Studio 490. 



Details:  All papers used are from my stash.  I used water color paper for my embossed background.  Once the embossing paste dried I colored the leaves using Distress Ink Pad in Mowed Lawn (my favorite green color).  In between the card base and the embossing layer is a layer of green card stock that matched the mowed lawn.  I wrapped a vellum band around the card and placed a label created on my Silhouette using the Print and Cut feature.  Inside I stenciled a smaller branch in mowed lawn and used the silhouette to cut out the sentiment “Hello”.

I thought it would be hard using embossing paste but it only took me two tries to get the look I wanted.  I plan to use this technique more often.

Pull out your stencils and embossing paste and have some fun with it.  So what if you don’t get it the first time.  You know it takes practice to do a new technique.  Once you get the look you are after then the rest is easy.  And I would love if you share your embossing paste technique with the Cutters Creek Online Group.


Items used to create my card:


Summer Seasonal Distress Ink Pads

Card Stock

Dimensional Adhesive

Making Waves by Deanna M

Today I have a fun summer card for you! The image is an SVG file that I cut with my Silhouette. I cut him about 5" wide. My card base is white card stock folded to make a 5" X 6" card base. I added a black mat cut at 4 3/4" X 5 3/4".  My patterned paper is from my stash. The blue is cut at 4 1/2" X 5 1/2". The reverse side of the blue wave paper is the brown patterned paper. I took a strip of the brown pattern paper and tore it and then cut it to 4 3/4". I then inked the paper with some Tea Dye Distress Ink.

For his glass, I added a coat of Glossy Accents to it. I then added some Stampendous Mica Pearlized fragments so his drink had some ice cubes in it. I also sprinkled some Distress Glitter in Rock Candy on the wet Glossy Accents. Once it dried I added a second coat to add some additional dimension to the glass. To add the look of sea spray I added some of the Stampendous Frantage Embossing Powder in Shabby Blue.

I stamped my sentiment in some Memento Tuxedo Black ink. To finish my card I added some rhinestones and a small shell from my stash.

To attach my surfer penguin I used an Action Wobble so he could "surf".

Thanks for visiting us today. I would love it if you could leave me a comment and let me know what you think.

Thank you card by Michele

Here is something I did as a Thank you card. I started with a A2 card( 4 .25x 5 .5), I used ribbon I had in my stash, it is red with white poka dot the total length for the bow and strip is 10 inches( 5.5, 4.5 for bow), and a small pearl in the middle of the bow, I used a 1"inch punch to make the 4 circles and then I stamped with a small heart in different colors, and used a 3d pop dot behind each circle, I did the same for the Thank you. The stamp pad had a variety. I embossed half of the card with embossing folders from  Sizzix Textured Impressions Embossing Folders - Dots and Flowers Set.
 I hope you like this simple and clean card. Please stop by the store to find the products I used and what new items Kim has.

Michele's 4th of July Project

The 4th of July I just around the corner and so I made this cute card. I used paper from my stash. The card is 5x7 white with red dots. I printed this hat from a picture that was online and then I colored it with my copics (R27,B29,Y15) and then added some diamond stickles on the stars and used 3D foam dots. The saying is something I found online again and printed it out. This is just a clean and simple card that can be made.  Please check out the store and see what is new. Ask Kim if you can not find what you are looking for.
Have a great 4th of July and I hope you liked my simple card. Thank you.

Happy Birthday by Fran


My new passion is water coloring.  I was so surprised how easy it is to water color.  And the best part it doesn’t have to be perfect!  My card today is water coloring stamped images.



My card design was inspired by this You Tube Video.

Water coloring With Distress Inks


The card is 5-1/4” square.  I used water color paper that is 140 lb. weight and cold pressed.  Paint medium used is Distress Ink by Ranger.  The stamp used is called Favorite Flowers.  I placed tiny sequins and rhinestones on the front of the card for a little bling.  And I used glossy accents to hold the sequins in place.   What I love about water coloring is all the imperfections that happen once it dries and yet it has such a neat look.  You should try water coloring you would love how easy it is.  If you have Distressed Inks in your stash then all you need is some water, water color brush, and water color paper.  Using Distress Inks makes water coloring FUN!


You can get the following items from Cutters Creek Online Store:

Distress Ink Pads

Distress Ink Reinkers

Glossy Accents


If you have any questions about any of the other products used you can contact Kim to see if she can special order it for you.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope that I inspired you to try the water coloring technique.
