Hi, It’s Kelly Booth with you today. I often need a friendship card or a generic card to send to a friend. Using Suzanne Cannon’s A Way With Words and a simple flower by Susan Tierney Cockburn are the perfect combination for this! For my tutorial I chose the Friends word die and Susan’s Geranium.
Kelly Booth here today with a card suitable for any occasion. I’m quite fond of hydrangeas as I used to have them in my yard when I lived in Northern California. Here in Arizona they do not grow and it makes me sad. I love the realistic nature of the Susan’s Garden dies and am having lots of fun playing with them.
Here is the card I made for today’s tutorial.
Hi It’s Kelly Booth here,
I often like to create my own backgrounds for projects and was reminded recently of a technique I did several years ago to marble ink on cardstock. I decided it would be a pretty background for my Valentine’s Day card using several Elizabeth Craft Designs dies along with the new Bachelor Button by Susan Tierney-Cockburn. I love that bachelor buttons can be found in nature in so many beautiful colors.
Hi It’s Kelly Booth. I’m here to show you one of my favorite ways of coloring using the Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape and Cool or Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter. Please note that the Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter contains cooler sparkles in it, which gives you a better result in seeing the colors of your image under the glitter than when using Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter.
I’m using one of the Sweet Birds from the new Feather Friends stamp set for my card and will show you a few others created with the same technique.
Hi, It’s Kelly Booth here. One of my favorite things about making cards yourself is that you can customize them to specific colors. I had a wedding to go to and loved that I could give them a card made in their special colors.
Today I’m using the new Anita Frames Pop Up die set just released by Karen Burniston for the wedding card. Other dies we will be using are the new Circles & Label set, the Wedding Charms set, Stitched Squares, Poppy The Owl (tiny heart), Petit Flourish Stage it Stencil, and the Best Wishes Clear Stamps.
Here is my card front:

Hi Kelly Booth here, I’ve recently been inspired by all the Springtime flowers popping up all over and so I decided to make a birthday card using some colorful flowers using the tiny flower from the Fence Pop Stand die set, Lucky the Rabbit and the Hanging Charm Pull Tab die set. I also used some paper from Through The Lens – Wood , the Flower Stage It Stencil , Lucky Birthday clear stamps and the Stitched Rectangles die set.
Hi It’s Kelly Booth
One of my very favorite things to do with cardstock that has a white core (White on one side and colored on the other) such as the New colored Soft Finish Cardstock, is to emboss it and then lightly sand the surface. I am just loving all the fun colors of the Soft Finish Cardstock so thought I would play with this favorite technique of mine.
Here is the front of the card with fun colors and Happy Balloons!
And the inside with more of the embossed and sanded cardstock around the Happy Birthday Pop Up:
