Watercolor Cactus Card

Hi! It’s Elena today and I have been wanting to use the Cacti Clear Stamps from Krista Schneider for a while now. Cactus and succulent-themed cards seem to be very popular these days and Krista’s stamp set is so cute that I had to jump in and make my own version. I used two different easy watercolor techniques with a bit of die cutting and of course – glitter!! Here’s how I made the card: Continue Reading

Galaxy Background Father’s Day Card

May 17, 2018

Hi there! It’s Elena today and I thought it would be fun to create a galaxy background for a Father’s Day card. The Take Time for You die set seemed like a great compliment to a space theme background since time and space go hand in hand. Plus, it’s a great message for Dad, who likely doesn’t take enough time for himself, right? Here’s how I made the card: Continue Reading

Colorful Window Box Card

 

Hi! It’s Elena here and today I am suffering from Spring Fever. As a result, I have created a colorful window box card full of flowers to help satisfy my craving for all things spring. I used the Garden Party Clear Stamps along with some foam tape and several different papers, die cut and layered together to create added dimension on an otherwise simple card. This card could be sent as a friendly hello or, with a change of sentiment, be a fun Mother’s Day card too. Here’s how I made it: Continue Reading

Bright and Colorful Floral Easter Card

March 19, 2018

I always enjoy stretching my stamps by using non-holiday stamps for holiday cards, mixing them with some holiday-themed accessories. For this card, I have combined flowers from the Laundry Party Clear Stamps with Easter eggs from the Spring Sentiments Clear Stamps set to create a bright and colorful Easter greeting. Here’s how I made the card: Continue Reading

Colorful Watercolor Crystal Valentine

Valentine’s Day is almost upon us and normally we think of reds, pinks and whites for this holiday. But being a color person, I decided to go in a completely different direction and create a super colorful card for a bit of an artsy twist on a Valentine.

Manly-ish Mouse Valentine

Manly-ish Mouse Valentine

When it comes to making a Valentine for a man, it can be a bit of a challenge. How do you balance the girly hearts and doilies with a man’s less glittery sensibilities? For today’s project I have tried to do that. There are definitely feminine elements at work in this card, but the color palette and simple images help keep it from becoming too delicate. Here’s how I made the card: Continue Reading

This set is so cute that it made sense to me to combine it with a funny greeting to create a whimsical card perfect for the Christmas-lover with a sense of humor. Here’s how I made the card: Continue Reading

Gingerbread Christmas Wreath Card

Gingerbread Christmas Wreath Card

Although I love the traditional deep reds, greens and golds of the holidays, on this gingerbread wreath card I instead used brighter pinks, greens and purples to create a fun, kid-friendly Christmas card. To me, the vibrant colors remind me of the candy pieces that typically adorn gingerbread houses and people and really captures the “Candy Land” feeling. Yum!

Here’s how I made the card:

Fall Blossom Time

It seems like we are all focused on Halloween and Christmas cards right now, but I thought it would be nice to take a moment to celebrate fall with a colorful bouquet of fall flowers using the new Blossom Time stamp set from Krista Schneider. I love how you can change the seasonal look of flower stamps just by changing their colors and I personally can’t resist all of the yellow, orange and red tones of fall.

Here’s how I made the card: Continue Reading

Camping Out Colorado Canoe Card

Camping Out Colorado Canoe Card

Summer is a big time for outdoor activities here in Colorado, so I could not resist using the new Camping Out stamp set to create a Colorado-esque canoeing scene. Colorado is also a state filled with dog lovers (I am one of them), so I could not resist the adorable dog wagging ‘hello’ from the lake.

Here’s how I made the card: Continue Reading
