Simple Graduation Card

Hi there, crafty friends. I’m back today to share a simple graduation card… I started by stamping the background with alphabet letters (from an older Alphabet Soup stamp set by Hero Arts).

Sunnier Days Ahead Release-2020 Cards

Hello, crafty friends. Simon Says Stamp has a new release HERE and I wanted to share some cards I created using THIS new die. Now I don’t know about you but this year (2020) has been difficult.

Cards for the Community

Hello there, crafty friends. I’m back today with more cards that I mass produced for workers in our community that are on the front lines (grocery store workers, delivery drivers, post office workers, etc.)… I started by die-cutting THIS heart several times from gray card stock as well as patterned papers and specialty papers. I created a base to adhere everything down to by tracing the inside of the heart die and cutting it...

Stitching Panel Card Bases

Hi, crafty friends. I wanted to do something a bit different for today’s project so I created card bases from THIS stitching panel die… I die-cut it from three colors of card stock and folded it in half to create a smaller card base. They measure 3.5 x 5 in size and still fit nicely inside a regular A2 envelope. For the pink card, I pushed out all of the circles in the holes...

Dimensional Die-cut Backgrounds

Hi there, crafty friends. I have a couple cards to share today and a few tips on adding dimension to your die-cuts…. For the card on the right, I cut one of THESE leaves from shades of teal and blue card stock and adhered them to a card panel, creating a background. Instead of adhering the second layer of die-cuts directly down (on a select few leaves), I adhered just the center vein of...

Single Border Die Background

Hi, crafty friends. Recently, I shared THIS post showing how you can create a fun background using a single border stamp.

I used THIS coordinating die to cut them out adhered them on a piece of kraft card stock...
