Stamping and heat embossing tips to create a wedding invitation

Hello! Welcome back to Sisters Craft Cafe.
 I got to play with the new wedding themed stamp sent to me by the generous BEE HAPPY CRAFTS. I am a big fan of stamping and all things related to weddings. So, I quickly prepared my materials for a card project.


Before using a brand new acrylic stamp, it is best to rub an eraser on the side where you rub the ink to remove that invisible "plastic film".  By doing this, the ink application will be even.

Next step, rub the acrylic stamp on the embossing ink pad.

Stamp the wet acrylic stamp on a piece of paper, then pour some embossing powder on it.
Turn on the heat gun and apply heat on the stamped word.
You'll see the results when the powder start to melt.

Assemble the wedding invitation envelope..

I used Kraft paper, lace, trim, and die cut doily and flower, and heart bead.

This will hold the actual invitation cards. If you have a good printer, you can print out the cards and adhere it to this envelope.  I like small cards, so this one can fit 4x6 cards. You can create a larger holder if you like. 5x7 and 6x6 are the ideal card sizes.

This is a very easy, shabby chic project when you have the basic tools on hand.


Don't worry if you have no heat gun, you can still create a fabulous card using the sentiment stamps.

Thank you very much for stumbling upon my blog :-)  and thanks to  BEE HAPPY CRAFTS
for the Kaiser Craft wedding sentiment stamps. 

Boot shaped gift card holder

Hello fellow crafters! Today I'm sharing a project I made using some colourful 12x12 papers from BEE HAPPY CRAFTS and a die cut shape file from Silhouette Cameo.

First I thought that it would be fun to start making gift card holders to have these ready for Christmas and New Year. I can now ditch those boring red pockets.

First I cut the boot shaped base with my Silhouette Cameo  using a grey yardstick. Then I cut out the other boot elements using patterned papers.

I also cut out flowers and leaves.

Next I cut out small envelopes with s Sizzix die, this is a Brenda Walton die, then adhered the small envelopes inside the card.

I decorated the boots with flowers, leaves, trim, and strips of leather. The stars and dots accents on the boots were made with washi tapes. I just happen to have stars and dots that look good on this project.

This is a fun and quick project that you can do in your spare time.

Mixed Media Collage: Flowers -DT Project for Beehappy Crafts

Hello! How time flies! I didn't realize that it half of September is done until I was about to write this post. Ugh!

I want to share a fun project I made on a weekend in between toddler-sitting. I have 2 kids ages 5 and 3 and they're a handful!!

This was how my working table at home looked like.... You can see all the supplies I intended to use for this project...

It would have been nice if I took a video, but sorry I'm still in the process of learning how to do it.... so, let's settle with photos.
I used the DCWV papers that came from BEE HAPPY CRAFTS. One of the sheets caught my attention and I fussy cut some of the blooms on  the sheet.

I used cheap clear glue from a local craftstore since I cant find a better brand of gel medium. This kind of glue works well on paper. 

NEXT: I tore sheets of bookkeeper and laid these on my base. When I was satisfied with the placement, I adhered them with glue. 

NEXT: I painted gesso all over.... I used a heat tool to hasten the drying process.

NEXT: I painted the background with blue acrylic paint. I used a stencil to paint textures. I didn't like it, I should have used a texture paste instead. Once the background was dry, I laid the cut-out flowers and glued them on the page.  

Once the glue was dry, I started painting the flowers. This part was super fun!


I added leaves, stamps some butterflies, added a pot, and more stamped images here and there to give the page more character. Please feel free to write me some comments, it will surely be nice to read. For your crafting needs, please drop by BEE HAPPY CRAFTS ONLINE STORE to shop.

Thank you!

Safari Themed Party Lootbag and Memo Pads

Hello fellow crafters!  Im so excited to share my latest projects using the DCWV Alphabet Zoo Stack  I received from BEE HAPPY CRAFTS. If you have time, please visit their BEE HAPPY Facebook Page to see what's in store.  They have lots of stuff for paper crafts and party needs.

I was thinking of a baby shower. Since the stack had oranges, pinks and lime green colors, I imagined that these would make a bright combination for party giveaways and loot bags. 

Here's what I came up!

I used a Sizzix pro die to make this bag. A pro die is 12x12 in size. You'll need the Sizzix Pro machine to use it.  For the embellishments, I used Sizzix leaves die to die cut the green leaf. I also used my trusty decorative scissors to cut the edges of the orange scrap paper that was used as the background of the pink zebra. 


For the notepad base, I used the Sizzix crescent tag die. 
When creating party decors or supplies, be sure to stick to a particular color combo or theme or focal point. My focal pint was the zebra. 

The sticky note pad was store bought. Im glad they had animal shapes. 


I used a custom-made die to cut out the shape of the shoe. 
After gluing the cuts together, I embellished the straps with letter beads from Bee Happy Crafts
and added a cute zebra with scalloped edges. I used Fiskars Scallop Puncher. 

           Hahaha! It was really fun playing with my toys, and my DIY party is on its way!

Materials Used
Sizzix Pro bag with handle

Sizzix Bigz super crescent tag

Custom blade for baby shoe
