Trend Watch – The stars they shine for you

Space exploration is one of the many jobs that I am glad someone else has a passion for because I could never do it.  The vastness of the universe is completely intimidating to me.  I spent a lot of time watching a video that showed the earth in comparison to other planets, galaxies, universes and I don’t think my mouth shut the entire time.  I think awesome is really the only word to capture how awe inspiring the universe is.  So while I have no intention of ever getting on a space shuttle willingly, I am very interested in peeking at it from the safety of my home.

I have gathered a few examples of how paper crafters have chosen to show off our fabulous skies.  One of the other fascinating pieces of this subject is how many different ways you can create the look.

I love the look of the Heather’s card.  It puts me in the mind of looking at the universe on your back through the clouds.  The shading on the edges of her card is just wonderful and adds such dimension.  Heather used watercolors to create this cool effect.

Toni’s galaxy uses awesome colors like hot pink and mustard water color.  They work so well with the blues and greens and creates a nice overall effect with white watercolor flecked over the top.  She added a few rhinestones for those bigger stars.

Kristina has managed to capture alternative universes in her card.  Look at the bottom and the top of the card; doesn’t it look like you are looking at a space movie?  Super cool.  The other advantage is that it creates some white spaces so your sentiment can pop.  The technique to make this one is a smoosh technique.  Kristina has a tutorial on this card as well.  Click the link on her blog to watch it.

I love how Samantha incorporated a cute little character in the middle of her universe.  She used Distress paint.

This beauty was Jen’s second attempt at a galaxy background.  She did an excellent job.  She smooshed Distress with water spritzes on a craft mat to get her colors right.

Melanie’s card is just mesmerizing.  Maybe its the red.  She used My Favorite Things dye inks.  I just have a great anticipation of something cool coming out of the middle of this card.  The sentiment she used is just perfect for this too.

Kimberly used the same stamp set and look how differently her card turned out.  I think every time you try this technique you can end up with a different look.  Kimberly has a video tutorial with dye ink pads and a homemade spritzer to achieve the star look.

thank my stars Kimberly Crawford

I though Vanessa’s card was so creative.  I am not great with Zodiac signs but I think this one is Capricorn.  How adorable is this?  This Lawn Fawn set would allow you to include any sign in the stars for your favorite person’s birthday card.

Now if you are a Copic marker connesieur, you can try Elaine’s technique.  Not only is the galaxy beautiful but the dog’s face and the sentiment are just perfect.

Mayuri took a different take on the galaxy and put a heart in the middle of a distressed inked, lifted panel and used a cool stamp from Neat and Tangled to achieve a warp speed look.  The effect is awesome.

Nicole also used Distress ink pads to create her galaxy look.  I love all the white she used in her background.  And can you see those mini sequins for extra twinkle. Very pretty.

There are so many ways you can get this fun look.  You may even have a few ways that you have created based on what you had on hand.  I hope you found something new or were inspired to create a galaxy look on your own.

Below are links to products that can help you create your own look.

So go ahead … make something pretty.

Featured Artist/Designer: Maureen Plut 08 27 2015

Welcome to another Featured Artist/Designer Spotlight. Today we’re thrilled to welcome Maureen Plut. Before we show you Maureen’s project, let’s get to know her a little bit more…

MaureenPlutProfilePic-250W-08272015_edited-1I’m a St. Patrick’s day baby who lives in Beautiful British Columbia, Canada.  When I’m not in the studio making cards, I’m a Grade One elementary teacher to joyful, energetic 5 and 6 year olds, happy wife to Tony, proud mom to Jake, and loving GrandMoe to Ashlynn.  I am thrilled to be invited back to the Paper Crafter’s Library after two years!  I’ve been busy these past 2 years completing my Masters of Education from Gonzaga University while working full time.  Now that I’m finished, I’m excited to be back in the studio!

I currently design for Verve Stamps and the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge. I’m also excited to be rejoining the Clearly Besotted Stamps design team since taking a 2 year hiatus. My design style is all over the place right now!  It ranges from CAS to classic to shabby!  I’ve also been experimenting with mixed media art journaling.  I’m not a total trend watcher anymore, but rather create what I love.

I’m honoured to be featured here on Paper Crafter’s Library and hope you like the projects I’ve chosen to share.  There’s a little bit of what I love in them.

Personalized Wedding Card

This is my go-to wedding card design!  I use my word processing program to create the names of the happy couple using the Arial font at size 16.  I added a little lace and a pink heart rhinestone to add texture to this CAS wedding card.

MaureenPlut Wedding1-550W-08272015



Tip #1: the names and flourish are 2 different stamps I had to measure carefully to make sure the flourish was centered to the names.


stamps: Love and Marriage, Gratitude Journal (PTI)
paper: vintage cream (PTI), patterned paper (craft supply)
ink: onyx (versafine)
accessories: lace trim (craft supply), heart rhinestone (Recollections), word processing program (Open Office)

O Christmas Tree

Do you ever see a photo on Pinterest and say, “That would make a great card”?  I sure do!  Here’s my inspiration photo from It’s a Stamp Thing  (


I’m giving you a sneak peek at a new Clearly Besotted stamp set coming out on September 5, Tiny Trees.


Tip #2: Mojo in a funk?  Head over to Pinterest and search for images you love.  I’ve created a Christmas Card Inspiration board ( to help me get going on my Christmas cards.
Tip #3: It’s never too early to start your Christmas cards!  I don’t know about you, but I need LOTS of Christmas cards and Christmas always sneaks up on me!


stamps: Tiny Tree, Modern Christmas (Clearly Besotted Stamps)
paper: vintage cream (PTI), Altitude (BoBunny), Sleigh Ride (Crate Paper)
ink: basic grey (SU), vintage tea duo (PTI)
accessories: Christmas Tree die, rustic twine (PTI), stitched sentiment flag (Lil Inkers), glue pen, Prisma gltter, rusty bells (craft supply), paper doily (craft supply), seam binding ribbon (MemrieMare Etsy store)

Teachers Live Forever

I hate to say it, but it’s almost back to school here in BC!  Actually, this teacher has been in her classroom setting up this week and will be in next week as well.  I’m an over-planner when it comes to the beginning of the school year.  Because I love my job and all the wonderful people I work with, I had to make a teacher card with my favourite teacher set, Teachers Count  ( by Verve.  I helped inspire this set and I must say it gets the most inky love in my studio.


Tip #4: Use muted primary colours to get a vintage look on Teacher cards. After inking my apples and leaves, I stamped off once before stamping on my die cut.

Tip #5: Use green ribbon for leaves!  It’s a great way to use up to little scraps of ribbon you can’t stand to throw away!


stamps: Teachers Count, Dream Big, Peace on Earth (Verve)
paper: red (SU), rustic white (PTI), Smarty Pants (Simple Stories), grid patterned paper (scrap supply)
ink: red, wasabi, bermude, craft white (SU), aquamist (SU)
accessories: apples dies, scalloped flowers dies (Verve), Pastel Polka Dot Ribbon Collection (Verve), rustic twine, buttons (PTI), white embossing powder

We hope you have enjoyed today’s project courtesy of Maureen Plut.  Be sure to stop by Maureen’s blog: to see even more of her beautiful work (and let her know we sent you).

Trend Watch – Safari Animals

In my country a lot of people are on vacation right now. My Facebook timeline is filled with lots of happy pictures with people in sunny places. We’re having a typical Dutch summer right now, so the one day we have beautiful weather but while I’m writing this it’s raining cats an dogs and the thunderstorms aren’t far away. So today, I would like to dream about a sunny safari with lots of animals. And while it’s a dream, these animals are really cute of course ;).

Cute animals are always a popular item for the crafting industry, but lately I’ve seen a lot of African animals. So get your binoculars ready, we’re of for a trip through Africa.

We’re starting with a flamingo. I love the soft pink color Yukari used for the feathers!

Featured Artist/Designer: Melissa Chipperfield 08 20 2015

Welcome to another Featured Artist/Designer Spotlight. Today we’re thrilled to welcome Melissa Chipperfield. Before we show you Melissa’s project, let’s get to know her a little bit more…

2015 MelissaCProfilePic-250W-08202015I am so thrilled to be here again at Paper Crafter’s Library!  I am Melissa Chipperfield from that state in the Midwest that seems to be known best for growing corn.  You know, the place where the soil is rich and the people are known for being open & friendly!  I love simplicity, especially when it comes to card making.  Maybe it’s because I am busy raising 4 children (ages 2-11)!  I am married to a computer minded, mechanically gifted, math whiz who can fix just about anything (including my crafting tool mishaps).  I’m a registered dental hygienist by trade, but that is a very part time career for me right now.  Over the years, I’ve developed a love for photography and am slowly working toward creating a part time photography business, Emotional Lens Photography.

I began stamping and scrapbooking back in my college days (not even going to tell you how long ago that was) when some friends and I would get together to craft.  After getting married, DH and I relocated & I became friends with a gal who was an avid stamper.  From there, I became passionate about card making and my stamping style evolved into clean & simple design as the years went by.  My cards today look quite different than when I first started stamping!  I am currently on the Precious Remembrance Shop design team & am the creator and coordinator for CASology, a clean & simple challenge blog.



There’s nothing I love more than to spend an hour or two playing with my camera!  I love playing with camera themed stamps too, so grabbed one from my collection for today’s post!  The camera image was stamped in three different colors and then all were fussy cut.  A little red heart was stamped in the center of each camera before layering and popping them up with foam dots.  I stamped the sentiment last and applied a clear gemstone.


Stamps:  Uniko Studio (Strike a Pose)
Cardstock:  Paper Trey (white)
Ink:  Stampin Up! (Basic Gray, Crushed Curry, Island Indigo), Memento (Tuxedo Black)
Other:  clear gemstone, foam dots

Warm Wishes


I am a daily coffee drinker and just happen to have a small collection of coffee stamps in my stash!  Imagine!  I used a piece of a coffee insulator sleeve from my occasional Starbucks treat, paper piecing on the fussy cut coffee cup image.  The assembled image was popped up with foam dots for dimension.  The steam was created by stamping the stars in gold and then sponging over them with Crumb Cake ink from Stampin Up!  Three gold sequins were added as a finishing touch.


Stamps:  Precious Remembrance Shop (Coffee Love, Journey – stars)
Cardstock:  Paper Trey (white)
Ink:  Stampin Up! (Crumb Cake), Memento (Tuxedo Black), Encore (Gold)
Other:  gold sequins, coffee cup insulator sleeve, foam dots

Thanks again for including me as a guest feature at Paper Crafter’s Library!  I’m honored!

We hope you have enjoyed today’s project courtesy of Melissa Chipperfield. Be sure to stop by Melissa’s blog to see even more of her beautiful work (and let her know we sent you). You can also find Melissa on Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram.

This little 4 1/4″X 5 1/2″ card was inspired by the warm colours of the cute fox in the Tiddly Ink image.  The Copic colors used for the image were chosen to match the DoodleBug Forest Friends paper, and the card was topped off with a Chevron Twill bow from May Arts Ribbon.  The sentiment was hand lettered to add a personal touch, focusing on the “helping hand” theme in the image.

MyndiFraser-250W- 08202015

I am a mom to five wonderful kids, spanning the ages of 18 to 2, and one Ragdoll cat. I have a great husband who puts up with all of us. I have lived all over the world as a Navy Brat, and then as a member of the Air Force. Now, I am a stay at home mom, and my kids keep me plenty busy.

I started crafting about five years ago, and I started colouring with Copics two years ago, and it has been my main crafting focus since then, although I am starting to get into mixed media now as well.

Get Well / Thank You Card

I made a card and left it sentiment free. It could be used as a “get well” card or a “thank you” card to someone who helped you through an illness. I distressed the edges of all the layers, inking up the edges of the image with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Victorian Velvet. I layered them all with the lace for the mat. I used hot glue to adhere the flowers, and craft glue to adhere the pearl string.

Trend Watch – Spooky Funny Halloween Cards

It is so fun this time of year to anticipated fun times like back to school (for moms and dads), autumn leaves turning colors and the perfect costume for Halloween.  I love all of those things too, although my favorite by far is Halloween – so I thought I’d share with you some fun projects to get your creative juices flowing – because before you know it – Halloween will be just around the corner.

I like the anticipation of the scare as well as the scare.  But Halloween can also be funny too.  This week, I want to show you how funny and punny Halloween can be with stamps that show the humor in Halloween.

Frankly, this first card is just so cute.  I love the pun and this card can work for Halloween or just for a friend named Frank.  The color combo of the fringe is awesome too.

Jessi’s spook-tacular web fill with googly eyes is great.  I love how she created so many layers on her card with ink, texture paste, ribbon and the cool web die cut.

I’m just batty about the adorable little costumed girl from My Favorite things.  She is so sweet and Amy’s coloring skills give a cool look to her costume.

Melanie killed it on this gorgeously bewitching card.  There is so much to see and she combined colors so well.  This is truly beautiful.

I just could not resist this little cat and his upturned paws.  How cute is he with the sentiment “boo to you.”

If you stare at the moon long enough you can actually see a face.  Well, not really but this card is hilarious and so very clever.

Another witch at a less witchy angle is this cutie from Stamping Bella.  So you can get your witchy on in a cute way.

This is an adorable way to set the scene for a ghoul’s night out.  These Lawn Fawn stamps are so cute and I love the way Elena created her background so the ghouls look like they are glowing.

This next card takes a Halloween theme but Karen used it as a belated birthday card.  How clever is this?

The silhouette of the witch on her broom creates just a bit of wicked movement with the stamped background.

And to round us out, I thought the adorable piggy costume from Kraftin Kimmie stamps was just awesome, and only a little bit creepy 🙂

So go ahead… make something pretty.
