Mermaid Card

Hi there, crafty friends. I’m back with more inspiration from THIS new release… I started by stamping THIS background stamp on four different shades of blue card stock. I cut out section from each and adhered them to one background to add color and dimension to the waves. This was highly inspired by Yana Smakula and her lesson in Spring Card Camp 1 over at Online Card Classes. I silver heat embossed the sentiment...

Send Happiness Release-Chillin Gnomes

Hi, crafty friends. Today’s card is a scene building card… I started by embossing THESE dies towards the bottom of the card panel using THIS embossing mat with my die-cutting machine. Instead of cutting the paper, it makes an impression. I blended some of THIS ink on the waves to make them a bit darker and stand out. I also added THIS for some shine. I die-cut a sand hill using THIS border die....

Send Happiness Release Blog Hop

Hello, crafty friends. I’m excited to be a part of this blog hop celebrating THIS new release from Simon Says Stamp. I started by creating a side fold A2 size black card base. From the front panel of the card, I trimmed 2 inches off the top, creating a shorter flap. This flap was created so the fairy image could be suspended. I stamped and colored the front and back fairy image from THIS...

First Responder Cards

Next, I stamped THIS background stamp on a blue and red A2 panel in coordinating ink for a tone on tone look. I cut each piece in half and adhered...

World of Love Card

Hi, crafty friends. I’m back today with another card share… I stamped THIS background stamp on a blue panel using a rainbow of Distress Oxide Inks. I chose to use Distress Oxide inks instead of regular dye ink because that ink has a pigment property so it stamps vibrant on colored card stock. Also, to ink up the large image with full size ink pads, I just used the corner and swiped the color...
