St. Patrick’s Day Gift Basket

Hi, crafty friends. Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I thought I’d share what I created for the teachers at my son’s school. I use any Holiday as an excuse to spoil them. 🙂 I shared a similar idea HERE last year and they were a hit. This year, I added a few different things to the basket as well as the tags… I’m currently obsessed with THIS stitching tag from My Favorite Things. I like that

Hi, crafty friends. Today’s card features products from THIS new card kit from Simon Says Stamp… I decided to create an interactive spinning card using one of the butterflies from THIS gorgeous stamp set (it’s included in the kit but sold separately HERE as well).

From All of Us Card

Hi, crafty friends. I’m back today with more inspiration from the latest Simon Says Stamp release. This time I’m using THIS new stamp set to create this bunny card… I stamped the multiple bunny image several times around the edges of the card.

I used several new goodies on these three cards… I’ve recently joined the alcohol ink band wagon and have been experimenting by making backgrounds.

My cards open from the center. I created the card base by trimming down a paper

Double Take: Stencil Backgrounds

Hi, crafty friends. Today’s technique shares how to create two backgrounds from one technique. I love time savers like this one. I created both of these cards in under fifteen minutes. It’s a great technique when you’re short on time and want to make multiple cards… For the first card, I inked up THIS gorgeous stencil with a rainbow of Distress Oxide Inks (all our listed below in the supply list). I made sure to

Bear Hugs

Hi, crafty friends. I’m back today with another card share… Recently, I’ve been using the Delicata inks. I love the shimmer they give. I stamped the heart images form THIS stamp set using THIS ink. I adhered a portion of it to a piece of kraft cardstock with a thin strip of mint cardstock. I die-cut the piece using THIS wonky die. I added a thin white mat and attached it to a top folding

Magic Color Slider Card

Hi, crafty friends. I’m back today with a fun interactive card… I’ve had THIS die for awhile now and haven’t had the time to play with it, until now. This card was fun to make. Let me start by saying that if dies like this intimidate you, give them a try anyway. I found great resources like THIS and THIS video that walks you through every step and made the process simple. I started by
