Groovy Cards

Hi, crafty friends. I have a couple of groovy cards to share with you today… I applied neon inks through THESE tie-dye stencils to create the backgrounds. I die-cut the peace & love and good vibes dies from holographic card stock and alcohol ink black card stock. I chose to use that black card stock because of it’s velvety smooth finish. I also added a few flowers from the Mother’s Day die to the...

I white heat embossed a sentiment from the kit’s stamp set and added a couple of strips of the...

Mini Slimline Bear Hugs

Hello, crafty friends. I’m back with more inspiration featuring products from THIS release… I started by mixing in Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink into the white embossing paste.
