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.

Mini Pizza Box Valentines

Hi, crafty friends. I’m back today to share how I created these mini pizza box valentines… I’m always looking for unique ways to present a little gift. To create these 4×4 mini pizza boxes, I started with a 12×12 piece of paper and cut it down to 8.25 x 11.5. Then I made lots of score lines. I put my paper in my scoring tool horizontally and scored at 1 inch, 5.25 inches, 6.25 inches,

Hi, crafty friends. Have you seen the new Love Release from Simon Says Stamp!? You can see it HERE. I’m sharing three simple Valentine’s Day tags (using some of the new products) that would make a great gift topper or even wrap around some chocolate to give as a gift… The new picture book dies were the perfect scale for tags.

Wild About You

Hello, crafty friends. Today I’m back with a masculine card design perfect for Valentine’s Day… I find it difficult to create masculine cards and usually Valentine’s Day is flooded with pink and red. However, after stamping, coloring and cutting out the image from THIS stamp set, I kept the rest of the card design simple to make the color combination pop. Since it was more earth tone colors, it lends itself to a masculine design.

I appled THIS Distress Oxide ink directly to the paper covering it

Boy’s Birthday Card

Hello. I’m a big fan of creating cards for kids but sometimes I struggle when it comes to boy cards. I used THIS paper pad for my color inspiration. It’s a zoo themed paper pack and the colors felt masculine to me. I used the patterned paper to cut out a background piece as well as three balloons from THIS die. I stamped and cut out the adorable elephant from THIS set and colored him
