Colorful Watercolor Crystals Valentine

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. Here’s how I made the card: Continue Reading

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

Deer Friends Christmas Card

I am a sucker for critters on Christmas cards and reindeer might be my favorite! So naturally, I had to create a card featuring the Reindeer & Birds Clear Stamp set. 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

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 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.

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

Follow Your Butterfly Dreams Card

Follow Your Butterfly Dreams Card

I’ve been feeling very woodland-y lately, perhaps because it is summer in Colorado and there seem to be deer and other critters everywhere. Plus, there’s nothing like a stunning natural landscape to inspire dreams! As a result, I had to make a card using the Birch Forest stamp set. I combined the stamps with some of the new patterned papers, particularly the ModaScrap Butterfly Dream paper. It seemed like the perfect mix for a card with animal friends that are here to encourage your dreams and imagination.

Teddy Bear Father's Day Card

Masculine cards can sometimes pose a challenge and since Father’s Day is right around the corner, I thought I would combine some of the adorable new ModaScrap patterned papers with some of the Teddy Bear Picnic stamps to create a card that any dad would love.

Bird on a Wire Interactive Card

Bird on a Wire Card

Since spring is upon us here in Colorado and I can hear birds singing in the trees, a brightly colored bird card seemed like a great way to celebrate. In this project, the bird is adhered to clear fishing line that can be twisted before placing the card in an envelope to create a “spinning” surprise when pulled out. Colorful and fun!

Here’s how I made the card: Continue Reading
