Customizable Card Set + New Release

Howdy, crafty friends. I have a fun card set to share today that features product from THIS new release… I love giving card sets as gifts and with Christmas just around the corner I decided to make my son’s teacher a card set. Instead of adding the sentiment to each card, I wanted to make it customizable to her needs. I will get to that in a bit but first, let me tell you...

Card Sharing Notes

Hello there, crafty friends. Today’s project idea is all about sharing handmade kindness… I stamped the sentiments from THIS stamp set on post it notes.

I can add these to the inside of cards, write my message, and the recipient can choose to remove the note and send the card on to a loved one. I love the idea of...

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.

First Responder Cards

Hello, crafty friends. I have a couple of cards to share today for first responders… I started by creating a gatefold card. I started with a 8.5 x 5.5 piece of white card stock and scored it at 2 1/4 inch from both sides. Next, I stamped THIS background stamp on a blue and red A2 panel in coordinating ink for a tone on tone look. I cut each piece in half and adhered...

Sunny Days Ahead Encouragement Card

Cards for the Community

Hello there, crafty friends. I’m back today with more cards that I mass produced for workers in our community that are on the front lines (grocery store workers, delivery drivers, post office workers, etc.)… I started by die-cutting THIS heart several times from gray card stock as well as patterned papers and specialty papers. I created a base to adhere everything down to by tracing the inside of the heart die and cutting it...

Cards for Hospital Heroes

Hi, crafty friends. I hope you are doing well and staying safe. I wanted to create some cards for my sister-in-law and her fellow team of nurses at our local hospital. They are NICU nurses that hold a special place in my heart as they helped my son when he was a newborn. He was in the NICU for ten days after he was born. It was such a scary time and they took...

I started by making three card bases from THIS card stock. I love that color of card stock because it’s a great neutral base. I stamped all of them with THIS background stamp using the same color ink for a tone-on-tone look. I...
