Hello! Samantha here – Today I’m sharing a card I created that came about simply by stamping a background stamp. I tend not to use pattern paper as much as I used to, but I do love a good versatile background stamp. Elizabeth Craft Designs have a few background stamps that I have used (a few times now) to create my own patterned paper. Once I had stamped my background the idea developed to use a masking technique to create ink blended features using Birthday Sentiments and the co-ordinating Labels 1 Die.
Hello everyone, it´s Sanna here again with this month’s guest designer blog post. I created two baby cards for July´s post and had quite a pile of leftover die cut pieces. That gave me the idea to use the bits to create a multi-color die cut background and focal point for a fun children´s birthday card.
Hello, it is Christine today with a card project using several of Susan’s Garden Notes dies and a background done with Distress Oxide Inks. My version of Love-In-A-Mist flowers is based on seeds I had bought called “Chocolate & Cream”(I think they may also be called “African Bride”). Unfortunately the seeds did not germinate as they were probably planted a little late, but I will try again for next year.
Hi, it’s Elena today. Is it just me or are the days flying by this summer? Christmas card making time is creeping up on me, but I wanted to take a moment to celebrate summer before it’s over with a pop-up card featuring the Sand Castle die set from Joset van de Burgt. The set is so cute, and believe it or not this pop-up card is easy to put together and doesn’t take that long to make. Here’s how I created it:
Hi, it’s Kelly Booth here today with a Colorful Balloon Card using A Way With Words dies. I love color and there is something so magical about watercolor to me. I thought the new Big Balloon die would be a perfect canvas for some fun color blending.
I, like many others, buy the entire release of a paper line! Often I am left with one or two full sheets and a bunch of pieces after I have created a few projects. So what do I do? I die cut lots of shapes using Elizabeth Craft Designs dies!!!! The following project was created using a couple of sheets and scrap pieces and lots of dies and a sketch I found online.
Hi Friends, it’s Sandy Diller here to share a project that would be good as a keepsake or a gift. I was in my local craft store a few weeks ago where I saw the cutest little box that contained a photo album. I thought I would give it a try using my own measurements and decorations. We recently took a trip to the beach so I thought this would be a good way to save some fun photos.
Hi Everyone! Marilyn here with a card I made using the Stitched Hexagon, Trio of Leaves and Words 2 die sets. You could use any sentiment for this card so it is versatile and would work for many different occasions. Please forgive the glare in some of the photos – I recently purchased a glass mat and didn’t realize how badly the light reflected until I was watermarking the photos.
Hello Crafty Friends!
This is the heart of birthday season for me. Many of my friends and family have a birthday between now and the end of September. I went through my birthday card stash last week and realized that I need to make several more. Oh darn! I guess that means more time in my craft room. 🙂
Today I am sharing two birthday cards created using the same instructions, stamps and dies. The focal point of each card front is the funny quote from the Happy Birthday Collection stamp set by Suzanne Cannon: “Blow out the candles…”. The instructions below list the products I used.
Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here today. I have a Clean and Simple card to share with you using the new Fitted and Stitched Hexagons dies along with the classic Small Butterfly die. Below you will find the steps to replicate this card.
