Let’s Connect Release Rainbow Cards

Hi, crafty friends. I love creating shaped cards for something fun and unexpected. THIS new rainbow die from THIS new release makes it so easy… I started by die-cutting THIS rainbow card base. I die-cut an extra card base for each card, cut them apart and adhered them to the back of each main card base to add more stability. For the first card, I die-cut the rainbow pieces from patterned paper and the...

You are Loved Card

Howdy, crafty friends. I shared a card a couple weeks ago on Instagram stories just for fun and I received a few questions so I thought I would share it here for all the details… I started by stamping THIS heart border on a rainbow assortment of card stock. I used THIS coordinating die to cut them out and adhered them down to a piece of kraft card stock that was cut down to...

Kid’s Artwork Cards

Hello, crafty friends. Today’s cards features art work from my son… I’ve saved many pieces of his sweet little art. Instead of storing all of them, I use some of them to make cards from. For all three of today’s cards, I used his rainbow drawings/paintings to create backgrounds for cards. For all of the sentiments, I white heat embossed a few from THIS stamp set on to black card stock. For the first...

Post Box Shaped Card

Hi, crafty friends. I love making shaped cards to mix things up and THIS post box die makes it so easy… I started by die-cutting THIS post box die from THIS card stock. After assembling the card, I added some envelopes and hearts (from an older SSS die) as well as a white heat embossed sentiment from THIS stamp set. I added some shine with THIS on the hearts. I also added a die-cut...

Even More Send Happiness Inspiration

Hi, crafty friends. Today’s card share is full of sparkle and shine and features a few products from THIS release… I started by applying three blue shades of Distress Ink through THIS stencil. Before removing the stencil, I applied THIS on top using THIS tool. I stamped, colored, and fussy cut out images from THIS stamp set. I created sand at the bottom of the scene by die-cutting THIS border from THIS card stock....

World of Love Card

Hi, crafty friends. I’m back today with another card share… I stamped THIS background stamp on a blue panel using a rainbow of Distress Oxide Inks. I chose to use Distress Oxide inks instead of regular dye ink because that ink has a pigment property so it stamps vibrant on colored card stock. Also, to ink up the large image with full size ink pads, I just used the corner and swiped the color...

Sunny Days Ahead Encouragement Card

Hello, crafty friends. You might want to put on your sunglasses, because I have a super bright encouragement card to share today.

Distress Oxide Ink Backgrounds

Howdy, crafty friends. I’ve been busy mass producing cards again… For these cards, I ink blended several background panels with a variety of Distress Oxide Inks on THIS watercolor card stock. I sprayed them with water to activate the ink and create some texture. After they were dry, I die-cut a large heart from the center with one of THESE dies. I kept those ink blended hearts for a future card project. I love...

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. For me, it has started out on the wrong foot and only gotten worse. I have a few friends that feel the same way and wanted to make some cards that offer some encouragement and maybe a...
