Hello! Thank you all for the kind messages yesterday! We have some new stuff coming and one of them is a Mother’s Day card that can be downloaded, printed and then colored. With the card also comes a test sheet to keep track of markers with various paper types. So many beautiful coloring options. Some examples and links are below!
I promised pictures of my cards made with the paper I purchased at the garage sale. I’m really having fun with the paper.
I also have some news…a few weeks ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I under went double mastectomy on Thursday and I’m home recovering. it’s been quite a shock and I think I’m so a little numb but surgery went well and we are waiting on the biopsy to know what comes next.
Finished another Bee card! I bought some paper at the garage sale we had. Buying my sisters junk! Supposed to get rid of stuff not buy but I will post some pictures later with the super cute paper! But for now the bees! This is a great card to send if you just want to let someone know you care!
Spent some time in the Stamp Studio yesterday! Oh it was so much fun. I got this border Cutting Die from My Favorite Things several weeks ago and I am just getting a chance to use it. I love border punches and they are really a thing of the past so I need to move on to border Cutting Dies!
It’s hard to see but I’m really into layering my Cutting Dies.
I cut out extra and glue together and layer. No need for 3-D-Dots! They add so much depth to the card but it’s hard to see on the pictures. if you’ve gotten a Frog card kit or the Present card kit-you will know what I’m talking about!
I’ve been working on some Birthday cards. I like to try and do a couple of cards with the same layout so I have a couple of samples. I also have been wanting to do some more snowman cards since we have so much snow!
Fresh snow this week so sharing a snowman card! White paper is dull glossy and snowman is colored with alcohol ink markers. The snowflake was stamped three times before re-inking to get the faded look. Links are below!
Happy Wednesday! Love cards can be sent on any day, not just Valentine’s. This dry embossing folder is by Cuttlebug and I believe it has been discontinued but might still be found on Ebay.. or another heart folder would work too. For circles, I always stamp first and then cut! It is easier to line up the punch or cutting die than the stamp but do what works best for you. The coffee beans and cup were colored with alcohol ink markers. Some other options I want to try for this card is a brown swatch behind the white strip and the stitched hearts on top of the solid. Links are below!
It’s time for a big snow storm! The snow started around 4 pm so it’s a perfect night for Stamping. My daughter left some bunnies on my desk all colored so I decided to make them into baby cards. One blue and one pink!
I have this jar of scraps that when I start with an 81/2×12 piece of paper and cut them down to swatches of either 4×51/4 or 37/5×5 I ended up with these perfectly sized pieces of paper that I used to layer on my background. I would have liked a gray to match my bunny but couldn’t find any so I went with what I had for the card. The blue background was a stencil my son found cleaning out a cupboard and he put it on my desk (hadn’t gotten around to putting it away yet!) so I used it for that background.
Happy Monday! I love using textured paper for a background. On all of these cards, the background is 4×5-1/4″. The white paper (dull glossy) is 4×2-5/8″ with the color swatch sized 4-1/4×2-7/8″. I used 3D foam squares to pop up the smaller swatches with one foam square in each corner and one in the middle. The roses were colored with alcohol ink markers. Links are below!
Happy Saturday and wishing you a song in your heart! The background paper on this card is white felt and I used glue to assemble all the pieces except the aloe plant in a pot. For the aloe plant, a 3D foam square was used to pop it up (tip below!) and it was colored with alcohol ink markers. The white swatch with the words and squares is dull glossy paper.
