Interactive Mother’s Day Card

Hi there, crafty friends. Today’s card share is an interactive Mother’s Day Card… I started by die-cutting THIS butterfly die a few times out of a piece of THIS kraft card stock. I backed the openings with an alcohol inked piece. I white heat embossed a sentiment from THIS stamp set and finished off the design with a sprinkling of THESE. I adhered the panel on to a piece of THIS card stock. I...

More Simon Says Stamp Fluttering By Release Inspiration

Hi, crafty friends. I’m back today with more inspiration using another picture book die from THIS new release. (If you missed yesterday’s post, click HERE.) THIS new lion picture book die is so cute.

Personalized Birthday Month Cards

Hi, crafty friends. Today’s cards features THIS bubble tracker stamp set. This product is intended for planner use, but I wanted to share how you can use it to make personalized birthday month cards… First, I stamped the geometric pattern multiple times to cover a background. I stamped the inside of the design with coordinating images. I used a variety of rainbow ink colors to create my own pattern paper. I used my MISTI...

Distress Oxide Ombre Backgrounds

Hi, crafty friends. Today’s cards feature backgrounds created with Distress Oxide Inks… I haven’t played with them in awhile so I thought I would break them out to create a couple of ombre backgrounds. Anytime I work with these inks, I like to use THIS cardstock. It makes blending effortless and saves time. I started by die-cutting each panel using THIS die. I taped the sides of the die with THIS to protect the...

He is a very smart, funny, and affectionate six year old that lights...

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...
