I die-cut two circles using the Deckle Edge Circle Dies from colored cardstock and two regular circles from white cardstock. I stamped the outline image from the Printmaking Florals...

Here’s a closer look… I also created an envelope using the Slimline Envelope...

Stencil Week-Day 1

Today is Day One and I wanted to start of simple with basic ink blending through a stencil… I inked up THESE brushes with dye ink and applied the ink through THIS stencil in a swirly motion on to a few envelopes. You can do the same thing to create quick and easy card panels but I...

Envelope Dies

Hi there, crafty friends. Simon Says Stamp recently released some envelope dies and I’m obsessed. I spent an afternoon watching Netflix and creating envelopes and thought I’d share them here.

I stamped it with THIS ink and colored them in using THIS watercolor once the black ink was dry. I traced them twice and cut those out to create card backs. I scored a line on the back piece towards the top and applied adhesive above that line to create a...
