Hello My Crafty Friends,
It’s Christine here today sharing a card I created for my dear friend since high school (my 50th class reunion is this summer, hers was last summer). We now live an hour and a half apart but try to meet halfway for a day of shopping, eating and catching up every so often.

After finishing the two projects for today’s tutorial, I decided to make Magic Stamp blocks from the card fronts. It doubles the fun!
Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Happy Mother’s Day Gift Box. Mother’s Day is only a couple of weeks away and why not create a beautiful little gift box to put your mom’s gift in? Using a variety of dies from Joset Designs and ModaScrap, my gift box came together quickly. I hope you enjoy my tutorial!
Happy May Day! This is Selma Stevenson and for today’s tutorial I created pretty flowers and framed them with a trio of butterflies in the Happy Frame XL.
Hello Everyone, Christine here today with a card I have designed using the XL Happy Frame and of course some of Susan’s wonderful flower dies. Hoping that this card today inspires to create your own framed masterpiece!
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:
Good morning! It’s Laura here with you today. I really enjoy mixing geometric designs!
It’s Sara here today, and I have three new projects for you. I would like to show you how to use the same background stamp in three different ways.
For these projects I decided to use the same color palette, inspired by the wonderful orange color from the Classic Soft Finish Cardstock Sampler pack.
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,
