Born to Sparkle Release Blog Hop

Hi, crafty friends. I’m excited to be part of THIS blog hop celebrating THIS new release from Simon Says Stamp. So, I’m a big fan of when one technique turns into two cards. Today’s cards are a great example of that… To create these cards, I inked up my Gel Press with three colors of Distress Oxide ink. I die-cut the coordinating die from the Spring Bouquets stamp set and laid the white die-cut...

Love You Release Inspiration

Hi there, crafty friends. I have some inspiration to share using THIS new release… I started by applying Distress Oxide inks through THESE heart layering stencils on the front of both card panels. I trimmed down the cards and rounded the bottom corners. I die-cut THIS coordinating heart die on the front panel of each card and stamped the animal heart image from THIS stamp set on the inside of the card. I colored...

I added THIS foil to one of THESE...

A Handmade Hello

Howdy, crafty friends. I have a couple of cards to share today… On each card, I stamped THIS envelope stamp four times creating a background. I die-cut an envelope die from pink and blue card stock. (I used an older die from Hero Arts.) I die-cut THIS die and used one of the hearts to decorate the envelope. I added THIS and THIS to the heart for some shine. I finished off the card...

Full Stamp Set Backgrounds

Howdy, crafty friends. I’m back today with two cards… One of my favorite ways to create a background is by stamping an entire stamp set at once. I leave all the images in place on the plastic and temporarily tape it to my MISTI door. I stamped all the images from THIS stamp set at once using THIS ink and added THIS gold and THIS silver embossing powder on top. I adhered the panels...

Double Take: Thank You Cards

Hi. Today’s card features THIS new stamp set and THIS coordinating die… This stamp set and die is so unique as it stamps all at once and die-cuts all the images at once. I stamped the image using my MISTI and a rainbow of ink colors. I trimmed down the panel and added some dry embossed lines using my trimmer and bone folder. On the pink card… I stamped the sentiments again and cut them...

MOM cards

Howdy, crafty friends. Today, I have two cards to share that came from one technique. Don’t you love when that happens!? … I started by die-cutting THIS gorgeous die from an alcohol ink background I had on hand. For the first card… I used the outline of piece from the die and adhered it to a note card stamped with THIS background stamp. I used THIS ink so it wouldn’t be too distracting and...
