Peekaboo Cards + Yay You Release Blog Hop

Hello there, crafty friends. Today’s cards are part of THIS Blog Hop celebrating THIS new release from Simon Says Stamp.. For these cards, I wanted to do a Peekaboo effect where the majority of the design is on the inside of the card instead of the outside. I wanted to keep the outside pretty simple and only reveal a small window of design. That way, the inside would be a surprise for the recipient....

Repeat Die Cutting

Hello again, crafty friends. Today’s card features repeat die cutting to create a background… To create this card, I die-cut the Stained Glass Bird die four times from a white A2 cardstock panel. I left three of the birds all white. For the fourth opening, I removed all the white pieces and used the Stained Glass bird stencil to do some ink blending on the card base behind the die-cut panel. I die-cut the...

Happy & Joyful Release

Next, I die-cut and assembled the Big Picture Book Panda and Big Picture Book Big Body die from black and white cardstock. I stamped a party hat and cupcake image from the Time to Party stamp set and used the coordinating...

Life is a Party Card Kit Inspiration

Hi, crafty friends. I recently shared THIS card using the Life is a Party Card Kit. Today, I have more inspiration using the same kit.. To create this card, I die-cut five of the kit’s largest balloon die from colored cardstock. I stamped sentiments on a few of the balloons using the Life is a Party stamp set (included in the kit). I also stamped the confetti image from that same stamp set repeatedly...

Life is a Party Card Kit

Hello, crafty friends. Today’s card features THIS new card kit from Simon Says Stamp. I started by adhering one of the patterned papers to the front of a slimline card base. I added a strip of pink cardstock along the bottom to cover the area that the patterned paper didn’t cover. I die-cut the Big Picture Book Bear and Big Picture Book Hugs die. I added a party hat using the patterned paper in...

Feel Better Soon Card

Howdy, crafty friends. Today’s card features a die-cut sentiment cut from a stamped image… To create this card, I started by stamping the plants from the Printmaking Plants stamp set on to white cardstock. This is a 6×8 layering stamp set and is so easy to line up. I really like that it colors in the images quickly with ink. I stamped the outline image first using black ink and then added color to...

I cut both heart inserts using cardstock from Concord...

Basic Box Card Week-Day 4

Howdy, crafty friends. The Basic Box Card Week continues with my favorite design yet… Instead of the typical vertical orientation, I flipped it and used a horizontal orientation to create a fish tank!

I stamped and colored a few fish and plants from the Oceans of Love stamp set and die-cut the Picture Book Fish...
