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:
Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here today, showcasing one of the 6″ x 6″ background stamps by Krista Schneider. For some, this is a bigger stamp than needed and most would cut out only a section of it, but below you will find a simple way to stamp only the section you want! By doing this your project will look natural and will give you multiple looks using one stamp. I’m providing all of the easy steps to replicate this card.
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.
Hello everyone, it´s Sanna here again with another guest blog post. For today´s post, I´ve created two love themed cards that can be used for Mother´s Day and other similar occasions.
I created only one background piece with a heat embossing and inking technique, and with a clever trick I got two cards out of the one background piece.
Hi there! Marilyn here to share a card using the smooshing technique for my background along with glittering for the pretty die cut dragonflies. I’ve shown two backgrounds as options, one dark and one light, but I chose the lighter background for my card.
Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Birthday Wishes Card. Spring has sprung and has definitely inspired me when it comes to creating fun and bright birthday cards. Using a variety of dies from Joset Designs, ModaScrap and Els van de Burgt Studio, my card came together quickly. I hope you enjoy my tutorial!
Hello Crafty Friends.
Recently a very good friend of mine celebrated her birthday and I wanted to create a card that was bright, beautiful and inspiring. The quote “Our birthdays are feathers…” in Suzanne Cannon’s Happy Birthday Collection stamp set was perfect for the card front!
- Create a top-fold card base from black cardstock.
- Die cut patterned paper using the Stitched Rectangles die that closely fits the card base while leaving a narrow border.
- Die cut corners from blue patterned paper.
- Stamp quote onto white cardstock using black ink. Stamp balloons using colors to coordinate with patterned paper. Die cut using Stitched Rectangles die.
- Cut black cardstock to mat stamped quote. Mount onto patterned paper.
- Mount corners onto mat stack using liquid adhesive, folding and gluing the tabs to the back of the patterned paper. (Alternatively, trim off the tabs.) Mount to card front.
- Create triple bow using coordinating ribbon and mount to card front using liquid adhesive or instead of wet glue use small snippets of a Tombow Xtreme Adhesive Tab.
The card came together rather quickly and the results were bold and beautiful. My friend loved it!
Thank you for stopping by. I do hope you enjoyed the birthday card!
Have a happy, crafty day,

Hi Crafty People! EK here today. I thought with Easter just a few days away, I thought I would share a wall hanging decoration I made for the wall next to the Easter Day kids’ table. We are having several different families come together this year since none of us can get together with our born-into families, and we are going to have a table of eight elementary school kids sitting together. My children and I have been busy making decorations for the house and I realized that the wall was looking just a little bleak, so I came up with the idea of making this wall decoration.
The inspiration of for this project started with a frame that Els made a few weeks back during her Technique Friday with Els Assembling the Happy Frame XL, where Els decorated just two of the side panels with stamps while leaving the other two bare.
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:
Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here. Today I am showing you a card I made for Mother’s Day. Joset’s new release has large and small flower die sets and a trio of leaves that I thought would be perfect for any occasion. Below you will find the easy steps to replicate this card.
