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!
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!
We have had an abundance of sunshine lately after our big snow storm! It’s melting all that stuff. We have another card kit to post. This card is so cheerful. And now we are getting another round of snow tonight! Hmm maybe should do a little stamping!
Times fun when you are having flies! Boy does time ever fly! I’ve been wanting to get this card kit on the website and I finally got around to it! It’s super cute. The colors are great. There are extra frogs so they have depth to them! We’ve sent a few out in some of the orders.
We’ve been working on a couple of card kits. Some of you who have ordered recently might have gotten one as a free gift! If you do not want us to stamp the card kits you can make a note of it in the order if it does not come up as an option. We are some what limited by our website platform.
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.
