Good Morning. This is Selma Stevenson today with a cute baby card designed using the Krista Schneider Zoo Babies Clear Stamp Set and the matching dies. Here is how the card was created.
Hello to you all. It’s Anita here and I am super excited to share a card making technique with you that will help you make amazing backgrounds for your projects. I have used the beautiful flowers from the Spring Bloom set. For my card I have used tal and other shades of blue teal for the flowers and background, plus metallic gold for the butterflies, borders, and outlines.
It’s Karen here! I’m getting ready to move. I’m not terribly excited about it, so much work, but I am excited about having a reason to create special cards to express gratitude for those who help me. Today’s card project is created for my son who LoVeS Starbucks. He has been with me every step of the way and SO helpful. Using the Sliders and Spinners die set, I designed a card with a special surprise that slides up.
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.
Hello to all,
It is Anita here with my post for the Colouring Design Team! I love colouring stamped images and Elizabeth Craft Designs has beautiful stamps that can be used on many projects.
I really love their flower stamps and that’s what I have showcased here today.
I have used the Spring Blooms Clear stamp set along with a corner die. In this card, I used the large flower for the main images and the smaller flower for the background. The details follow.
I admit it: I love ‘fussy cutting’! I know it’s not everybody’s favorite activity, but I really like sitting down with a pair of fine point scissors to cut around complicated shapes even when I have dies that would do the job and significantly reduce the time it takes to do a project. Dies leave a bit of a halo around the shapes, fussy cutting goes right up to the outlines. Yes, I do like to hand-hem what I sew, too. And I hand-baste rather than using pins when I sew a seam on the machine. I think it’s the slow pace that appeals to me, along with the hands-on aspect.
Today’s projects include stamping, coloring, and fussy cutting for the flowers, but I did include some die cutting for the Shimmer Sheetz branches, tag reinforcement and corners, the tag itself, and the Garden Fairies on the bonus card.
Happy Friday! It’s Karen here with a fun birthday card I made for the son of one of my friends. Boy cards are tough for me, but I think the combination of the Color of Puppies and Boy papers along with the Zoo Babies stamps was perfect. In my post today, I’ll give you a little tip on dealing with smaller pieces of scrap paper, too.
