One Layer Wonder-Floral Wreath

Howdy, crafty friends. Today’s card is a one layer wonder. Well, almost. I did adhere the piece to a card base but wanted to share an idea that had minimal bulk… I stamped the medium floral image from THIS stamp set using the 4×4 stencil wreath from THIS stencil bundle set. The stencil helps align the images in a wreath shape. I colored in the flowers with Copic Makers in rainbow order and added a sentiment from...

Pearl Alcohol Inks

Foil Transfer Gel Backgrounds

Hi, crafty friends. Today’s cards showcase a foiled background… I love the look of foil on dark card stocks. To achieve this look, I applied some of THIS transfer gel through THIS stencil. Once it was completely dry, I ran it through THIS MINC machine. It applies heat and the foil sticks to the areas where there is transfer gel. For the first card, I used THIS gorgeous rainbow foil… For the second card,...

Care Bear Cards

Hi there, crafty friends. Today’s cards were so fun to make and a throwback to my childhood. I’m a child of the 80’s.
