Ice Cream Gift Card Holders

Hello, crafty friends. Happy Friday! I’d thought I’d share what I’m gave to the staff at my son’s school for the end of the year gifts… I planned something different for his main teachers, but I still wanted to say thank you to all the wonderful staff at his school. (secretary, nurse, traffic helpers, past teachers, OT, speech, etc.) I was looking for something inexpensive because I had so many to purchase. I thought...

Simon Says Stamp Sending Sunshine Release

Hi there, crafty friends. Today’s card features new products from THIS release by Simon Says Stamp. I started by stamping THIS new background stamp using THIS ink on THIS card stock. I love how much detail it adds but still giving a tone-on-tone look. I stamped the wreath from THIS new stamp set using THIS ink and clear heat embossed it. I used THESE new markers to add a dot of color at the...

Swimming Pool Slider Cards

Hi, crafty friends. Today’s cards were so fun to make. I think THIS stamp and THIS die set are so clever that I had to make a couple of cards with it. First, I stamped all the images at once using my MISTI. I colored them in with Copics and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I created the water with alcohol inks. I applied alcohol ink THIS paper to resemble water....

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...

Stitching on Cards

Hi, crafty friends. I have a confession to make. I am addicted to stitching on cards. I found it to be relaxing while I’m watching t.v. or when I’m a passenger in the car. I’ve made several cards but thought I’d share these mini cards today… I started by die-cutting THIS tag three times from white cardstock. If you’re having any trouble removing the die-cut holes, try using THIS metal shim in your big...

Simon Says Stamp April 2018 Card Kit

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...

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...

Hi, crafty friends. I’m sharing some inspiration using THIS Simon Says Stamp’s March card kit. It’s packed full of great spring themed products. I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for spring! I fell in love with the bunny image in THIS stamp set from the kit. I stamped, colored, and cut him out and added a pom pom for his tail. For the background, I used the two mini ink cubes from...

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...

Photo Christmas Card

Hello. I thought I’d share our family Christmas card for this year… I love creating interactive cards and adding photos to Christmas cards, so THIS die was perfect. I cut it from black cardstock and added a photo of my two sons on the inside… I created a snow bank using THIS die and added a sentiment from THIS stamp set. I stamped THIS background to create shingles for the house and added snow...
