Concord & 9th March Guest Designer-Week 3

Hello, crafty friends. Happy Friday. Today’s cards features new products from Concord & 9th… I have to say that THIS stamp set was my favorite from the release. I think it’s because it reminds me of my childhood. I grew up in the 80’s and I remember having rainbow wallpaper in my bedroom.  It also reminds me of the rainbow care bear I dressed up as for Halloween when I was five. Every time I

Simple Thank You Cards

Hi, crafty friends. I have a simple thank you card to share that is easily mass produced… I die-cut THIS new border die on the left side of a white card stock panel and glued a piece of THIS patterned paper behind the openings to create a rainbow border. I stamped a thank you sentiment from THIS new stamp set using THIS ink and clear heat embossed it. I adhered the panel on top of

Welcome Baby Cards

Hi, crafty friends. Today’s cards would be perfect to celebrate the arrival of a baby boy or girl… I started by die-cutting a piece of THIS cardstock using THIS die. I chose to use Bristol cardstock because I applied Distress Oxide inks on top using THIS cloud stencil and it works so well with the ink. I stamped the images from THIS stamp set using THIS ink and colored them in using THESE markers. I applied

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). I stamped two of the same butterflies using THIS ink and clear embossed it. Then I used a rainbow of Distress Oxide Inks (two Distress Oxide ink colors come in

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.
