Crafty Friends Card

Howdy, crafty friends. I’m loving THIS new release and sharing more inspiration using some of the products… I started by cutting strips of colored card stock to cover a card front panel.

Hi there, crafty friends. I’m back again today with more inspiration using Simon Says Stamp’s new release HERE… I started with a tall, slimline card panel measuring 3.5 x 9 inches.

I’m sharing a couple of cards today using some of the new goodies… For both cards, I started by white heat embossing THIS background.

Adding Color Quickly

Hello, crafty friends. I’m sharing a simple sympathy card today with an ink blended background… I’m not the best at coloring so I’m always looking for ways to add color without coloring individual images.

Acrylic Paint Background

Howdy, crafty friends. I have a fun paint background technique to share today… I was doing some purging in my craft room and came across some tubes of acrylic paint.
