Simon Says Stamp Celebrate You Release

Hello, crafty friends. I’m sharing a couple cards today featuring products from THIS new release. For both cards, I dry embossed THESE dies to create a background. I stamped, colored, and cut out THESE images. I stamped a sentiment from the stamp stamp set in the center and added some of THESE and THESE drops along with some hearts from THIS die. I added some of THIS on top of the hearts from some shine...

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...

One Stamp Set, Two Ways (Picket Fence Spotlight on You)

Hello, crafty friends. I’m sharing a couple of rainbow cards today that use one stamp to get two different looks… I recently shared a card HERE where I used the spotlight on you stamp set image as a sun burst image.

After adding...

I also die-cut it from a variety of colored cardstock. For the first card… I used the negative piece...

Double Take: Stencil Backgrounds

Hi, crafty friends. Today’s technique shares how to create two backgrounds from one technique. I love time savers like this one. I created both of these cards in under fifteen minutes.

I made sure...
