Good morning! A fun and easy card for you today! And, it's a great way to use up your scraps of paper!
Just cut four rectangles of your favorite designer paper--you can use any scraps you have! Don't forget--each piece has two sides, too!! Adhere them to a piece of coordinating cardstock, then trim that to fit! Super easy!
oh gosh, will I miss this one! It is such a pretty set, and the coordinating designer paper--LOVE! But, alas, we have to say goodbye! If you haven't purchased this yet, you only have until June 30th! Don't miss out!
For this card, I used 3 different patterns from the Artfully Composed Designer Paper--the background, the leaf and the strip of Calypso Coral! The sentiment is stamped in Evening Evergreen--too coordinate with the leaf!
So, I was stamping last week, and decided I needed some fun birthday cards! I hadn't used my Nature's Harvest Stamp Set in awhile, so I pulled it out! After lots of die cutting and coloring (while watched "Call the Midwife"!), this is what happened:
The die cuts are "stacked" -- which simply means I cut 3 of them, and glued them together! I even stacked the stamped image! So, this card is a bit thicker than a normal card, but it's really pretty! It feels good in your hand, if that makes any sense!!
Do you have a birthday coming up? Leave me a comment below, and maybe you'll find this in your mailbox!!
Here's a soft and pretty card for you today! It features the Painted Posies 3D Embossing Folder! I added the sentiment from the Artfully Layered Stamp Set--cut out using the Stylish Shapes Dies. So simple and easy, but so elegant!
I've got two spots left in my June Stamp-a-Stack! Would love for you to join us!! Click HERE to sign up! It's this Saturday at 9:30am!

Good afternoon!! I have spent most of the day in my craft room, just playing! I wanted to try some ideas out, and had so much fun! I was even able to complete this card, which uses inspiration from two challenges: Just Add Ink's sketch, and TGIF's colors! I absolutely LOVE the way it turned out!
I used two of the colors for my color blocking--cut them out and adhered them to a piece of crumb cake (that you can't see!), and ran it through my Cut & Emboss Machine with the Stitched Greenery Die--don't you love the effect?!! This panel is adhered to the cardbase using the Foam Adhesive Sheets--it covers most of the back of the panel (I wanted to give it extra sturdiness!). I then cut out 3 of the leaves from the Forever Flourishing Dies (funny story--I purchased the coordinating stamp set, Forever Fern, over a year ago, but didn't think I liked/needed the dies. Well, I finally purchased them, and use them NONSTOP!!) Anyhoo--I glued all three leaves together to form a stack--love the dimension this gives it! When I added it to the card, the leaves were too large for what I was going for, so I cut them up! The left over piece is shown. The sentiment is from the Happiness Abounds Stamp Set--the font in this set is so pretty--and is embossed in white on Basic Black cardstock!
I have been on a roll learning new things! This is a version of the Joseph's Coat technique, but no heat embossing!
To do this, you'll use your blending brushes and classic inks to create a colorful background. Then, place a stencil over the top, and add black ink! Super easy! And gorgeous, don't you think?! Oh, and I added Wink of Stella to the white portion of the Thanks:
