Hello Beautiful Release Blog Hop-Day 1

Hello, crafty friends. I’m thrilled to be part of THIS blog hop celebrating THIS new release. I have three cards to share today featuring my favorite stamp set from the release… I wanted to share several ways to use one stamp set. When I get a new stamp set and I’m not sure what creative direction I’m going in, I like to start by stamping all the images and using the coordinating dies to...

Hello Beautiful Release Inspiration

Hello, crafty friends. I’m back with more inspiration using THIS new release… I started by stamping and coloring THIS stroller image. I used THIS coordinating die to cut them out. I die-cut THIS word and THIS word in white and the shadow in gray. I adhered the pieces to a vellum piece cut with THIS scalloped die. I created backgrounds using THIS stencil and Distress Oxide inks in blue and pink. I finished off...

Hello Beautiful Release

Hello, crafty friends. I’m back today with a couple of cards featuring THIS new release from Simon Says Stamp… I started by ink smooshing a few colors of distress ink on both panels. I stamped and colored THESE bunny images and used THESE coordinating dies to cut them out. For the first card… I stamped a coordinating sentiment from the same stamp set on the inked panel and then added Versamark through THIS stencil....

Roundimals Roundup

Howdy, crafty friends. Have you seen the Roundimals stamps and dies from Brutus Monroe? They have stolen my heart and I wanted to share the projects I made with them… For the first card… I stamped and colored THIS adorable owl and used the included coordinating die to cut it out. I started by applying white texture paste through THIS stencil to add subtle interest to the background. I die-cut the pieces from THIS...

Spring Windows Card Kit

Happy Valentine’s Day, crafty friends. Today’s card share features THIS March Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp… I started by scribbling the three distress marker colors (included in the kit) over a piece of acetate. I just recycled a piece of packaging. I spritzed a bit of water on top and laid it on top of a watercolor card stock panel. I stamped the window image as well as a coordinating sentiment from the...

Geometric Circles Pizza Slimline Card

Hi there, crafty friends. Today, I’m sharing a different spin on THESE geometric builder circle dies… I thought one of them looked like pizza…maybe I was just hungry (lol)…so I stamped a small circle repeatedly from THIS stamp set to make it pepperoni pizza. I added a sentiment from THIS stamp set and adhered the circles to a background created with THIS stencil and THIS die. I added THIS to the pepperoni for some...

Heart Garden Card

Hello there, crafty friends. I’m back today with another scene card. They are one of my favorite types of cards to make… I stamped THIS background and did some ink blending on top with green and blue ink to create grass and sky. I colored the heart flowers with Copic markers and added a strip of grass die-cut along the bottom of the card. I rounded the two bottom corners and added THIS she...

Scene Changing Card

Hello there, crafty friends. I have a scene changing card to share today… I started by inking up the front and inside of the note card with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink. After it was dry, I applied glitter glitz gel through THIS stencil and die-cut three clouds. I stamped a sentiment from THIS stamp set on the top layer and adhered the remaining clouds underneath for dimension. I added a strip of gray...

Boho Circle Card

Happy Friday, crafty friends. I’m back today with a project featuring a faux stained glass look… I die-cut THIS die through two pieces of A2 sized white card stock at the same time. It cut through the top layer completely and it only made an impression through the bottom piece. With any intricate die, I use a metal shim in my cutting sandwich. I used the bottom impression piece as a guide on where...

Paper Hugs Slimline Card

Hello, crafty friends. I have a bright and cheerful slimline card to share today… To create this card, I applied a rainbow of Distress Oxide inks through THIS slimline stencil. I masked off around each row so I could get a different color for each row. I die-cut THIS die six times from black card stock and adhered them together for dimension. I stamped, colored, and cut out THIS image and adhered it beside...
