Hello, Gorgeous Release Blog Hop

Hello there, crafty friends. I’m thrilled to be part of THIS Blog Hop celebrating THIS new release. I have a card set to share that features pre printed sentiment strip backgrounds… I’m a big fan of the pre printed sentiments from Simon Says Stamp.

Stenciled + Foiled Sentiment Background

Hi, crafty friends. Today’s card shares a different use for the Sentiment Strips Panels… I’m a big fan of the pre printed sentiments from Simon Says Stamp. They are intended to cut apart and use the sentiments individually, but I decided to keep the panel whole and use as a background.

More Hoppy Days Ahead Card Kit Inspiration

Hello there, crafty friends. I’m sharing more inspiration using THIS card kit… I die-cut a piece of pattered paper with a Deckle Edge Rectangle die and used a smaller rectangle in the set to emboss a pattern inside. I used an embossing mat in my die-cut machine which makes an impression of the die instead of cutting it out. I die-cut the Repeating Circles die from the center of the panel as well as...

Once I was happy with the placement, I added dots of liquid glue...

Gel Press Backgrounds

Hello there, crafty friends. I recently watched THIS gel press video by Jennifer McGuire and I am hooked. I had so much fun creating backgrounds with my gel press and my MISTI.
