A Way With Words

You were Born with Greatness Butterfly Flourish

September 9, 2017

When I sat down to write this blog post, I wasn’t sure where to start!  It’s Suzanne here today sharing two very special new items.  The A Way With Words collection is growing to include six stamp sets! We’re going to have so much fun combining stamped phrases and images with the dies.  You’ll have lots of new ways to create and share your messages of love and encouragement.

The A Way With Words die collection is expanding, so you will have even more amazing word combinations and there are new designs that aren’t words but have lots of calligraphic flair.  I wanted to share one of those with you today.

I’m so excited to use this die and stamp combination; this is the Butterfly Flourish die set and the sentiment is just one of the stamps in the Soar Collection.

Here is how you can make this card!

Contrast and Layering – With You!

July 15, 2017

Hi Artlets! It’s Suzanne here today with a sweet card to remind someone special that you’re always with them, even when you’re apart.

To get the best look with your A Way With Words dies you want good contrast between the letters and the background. I thought it would be fun to use the ModaScrap Flower Lace 2 as a background with a different colour behind it, but that creates a far too complicated pattern and the words disappear. We need more contrast! There are a number of ways to work around this problem, but here is the one I chose.

Follow along with me to see how you can make this card!

Live! – A Get Well Wish for D.S.

July 1, 2017

By Judi Kauffman

Back in April, I designed a project that I dubbed ‘Celebration Ribbons’ – three oversized award-style ribbons that said Live, Laugh, and Love. I’m revisiting the concept, but with a more serious purpose. I’ve made this ribbon for a friend who has just had surgery for a bleed deep within her brain. I’m saying an emphatic ‘Live!’ and this time it’s a get well wish, sent with many prayers.

It’s so easy that you can whip up multiples for party favors, teacher gifts, family reunions, bridal and baby showers…

Baby Love Butterflies

June 10, 2017

 

We all need baby cards at some point! But this set is so much more.  It’s Suzanne here today with an easy card that, with slight changes, can suit any little person’s colour palette!

Instead of the butterflies, you can substitute the Stars Spray stencil design or the Heart Spray stencil design, which is paired with paw prints. Oh, anyone have a new puppy? Pair Baby love with the Paw Prints Spray stencil. Awwww!

Here is how you can make this card!

Hello! It’s Suzanne here today with a fun summer card that will cheer anyone who receives it! Here on the westcoast of Canada it feels like we went straight from winter to summer as we are enjoying an amazing run of warm weather.  I have the beach on my mind.  And that’s how this card came about! (oh, wait, maybe that was the trip to Hawaii…..)

Here is how you can make it!
