Latest & Greatest: Card Making with Photo Play Paper

Hey everyone! Roree here with today’s Make It! Monday post.

Our next show is this week in Chantilly, VA on June 23rd-24th. Stamp & Scrapbook Expo will be teaching three “Latest & Greatest” workshops at this show: Card Making, Cool Tools, and Stamping. We have lots of great products from some awesome manufacturers in these classes, and today I am going to be working with products from our Card Making workshop: Photo Play Paper‘s Summer Bucket List collection.

If you take the class, you will receive a sampler with the following products—6×6 Paper Pad, Word Strip Stickers sheet, and the Ephemera pack:


I just love the fun, bright colors in this collection—perfect for any summer-themed project!

I like to use products in unexpected ways and when I saw the fireworks and bowling ball stickers on the Word Strip Stickers sheet, I thought that layered together they would make a great flower center.


I used the plaid side of the 6 x 6″ Cotton Candy paper to cut out some flower shapes. Then I layered the die cuts and stickers together with foam adhesive to create my dimensional flower.


I added a leaves die cut and button to complete the flower, before attaching it to my card front for a fun, little “anytime” kind of card.



This Latest & Greatest: Card Making workshop featuring Photo Play Paper’s Summer Bucket List collection will be taught at our shows in Chantilly, Duluth, Kansas City, Santa Clara, Edison, and Schaumburg. We would love to see you there!

Stitched and Distressed Layers Card


Hey, everyone! Roree here with another Make It! Monday project. Today I am sharing how I created a card using my PenBlade craft knife as a distressing tool.


I started with some patterned paper and stickers from the Mad4Plaid collection from Photo Play Paper.


I cut out some square panels from the Lennox and Madras patterned papers, and I distressed the edges by running them through the thread cutting groove on my PenBlade craft knife.


This is a great feature because you can use the knife to distress without the blade being exposed.


I machine stitched around each panel, then layered and adhered the panels together.


I created another square panel from white cardstock, distressed and stitched the edges, and topped it with a flower I created from patterned paper, cardstock, stickers from the Mad4Plaid Delightful sticker sheet, machine stitching, a felt flower sticker, and a button.


I adhered the decorated panel to the center of the layered panels and adhered the completed panel to the front of a square card to finish.


I hope you enjoyed today’s Make It! Monday project. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Mist-Splattered Card

Roree-header-1500-800x192

Hey, everyone! Roree here with another Make It! Monday project. Today I am sharing a mist-splattered card and the techniques I used to create it.

roree rumph_mist_ink blot_card

I started with white cardstock, Heidi Swapp Black Velvet Color Shine, and a Faber-Castell stipple brush.

roree rumph_mist_ink blot_card_step1

I took the spray nozzle off of the bottle and dipped the brush into the mist.

roree rumph_mist_ink blot_card_step2

I pulled the bristles back with my finger, letting the mist splatter over the white cardstock. I repeated this step until I was happy with amount of splatter on the panel.

roree rumph_mist_ink blot_card_step3

I personally like this technique better than spraying the mist, because I always tend to over-spray and end up with more color than I originally wanted.

To add larger areas of color, I dabbed the wet brush directly onto the cardstock.

You can also drip the mist with the end of the nozzle to get a similar effect.

I let the mist dry and then added some paper and embellishments from Photo Play Paper‘s Like a Girl collection, along with some hand stitching.

Ribbon Spool Christmas Ornament

Roree-header-1500-800x192
Hey, everyone! Roree here with another Make It! Monday project. Today I am sharing a ribbon spool ornament I created using iCraft Deco Foil Foam Adhesive and Foil Transfer Sheets by Therm O Web and the Dear Santa collection by Photo Play Paper.

roree rumph_therm o web_icraft_deco foil_christmas_ornament
First, I started off with Therm O Web’s iCraft Deco Foil Foam Adhesive and Transfer Sheets.

roree rumph_therm o web_icraft_deco foil_christmas_ornament_step1
I put one of the foam adhesive sheets on a Cricut mat and cut out a scallop circle shape from Cricut Design Space.

roree rumph_therm o web_icraft_deco foil_christmas_ornament_step2
I was really impressed that the foam cut so clean and easy. And it didn’t mess up the blade at all.

roree rumph_therm o web_icraft_deco foil_christmas_ornament_step3
I removed the paper from one side of the foam adhesive die cut and added it to a circle of Believe patterned paper. I then removed the paper from the top of the die cut.

roree rumph_therm o web_icraft_deco foil_christmas_ornament_step4
I placed a foil transfer sheet over the foam adhesive die cut and went around the die cut applying a little bit of pressure.

roree rumph_therm o web_icraft_deco foil_christmas_ornament_step5
I lifted the sheet from the die cut revealing a foil-covered foam adhesive sticker.

I added the circle to the front of an empty ribbon spool and decorated it with Dear Santa Element Stickers, a few pearls, and some ribbon.
