Birthday Girl Card

Hello, crafty friends. Today’s card features how you can stretch your stamps. I used a Valentine’s themed stamp set to create a birthday card… I started by stamping the Tossed Hearts Background on to a piece of coral card stock using white pigment ink. Once it was dry, I cut it down into four squares and adhered it to top fold white note card. I stamped and colored the images from the Love Day...

Repeating Shape Backgrounds

More Diecember Inspiration

Hi there, crafty friends. I’m back with more inspiration from THIS new DieCember release… I started by die-cutting the Detail Tapestry Plate on a white panel for the background. I love that it pierces a pattern instead of cutting. I embossed the Mini Slimline Lattice die on a piece of kraft cardstock using an embossing mat in my die-cut machine. I cut it down and added a thin black mat to three sides and...
