Hi! It’s Elena today and I have been wanting to use the Cacti Clear Stamps from Krista Schneider for a while now. Cactus and succulent-themed cards seem to be very popular these days and Krista’s stamp set is so cute that I had to jump in and make my own version. I used two different easy watercolor techniques with a bit of die cutting and of course – glitter!! Here’s how I made the card:
Hello there, it´s Sanna here again with another guest design team post. Today I´d like to share a mixed media style scrapbook layout with you for a change. I´ve also created a clean and simple card with some of the residue just for fun and will show that at the end of this post. Hope you enjoy today´s inspiration!
Welcome to May’s Sunday Stamping with Hedgehog Hollow. Last month you may have seen that I fell in love with the Floral Background Stamp. I think this stamp is so versatile. As soon as I saw it I had so many ideas! Today I am going to be showing you a faux parchment craft technique. I did Pergamano many years ago but it was very labor-intensive, while this technique is quick and easy because the stamp and embossing do almost all of the work for you! Let’s take a look at the project…
I absolutely love the subtle color effect on this card. You can also make it more intense and in the video I will show you how. We will also be exploring some of the wonderful tools Elizabeth Craft Designs has that make this technique a cinch.
Hi there! It’s Elena today and I thought it would be fun to create a galaxy background for a Father’s Day card. The Take Time for You die set seemed like a great compliment to a space theme background since time and space go hand in hand. Plus, it’s a great message for Dad, who likely doesn’t take enough time for himself, right? Here’s how I made the card:
Hello everyone, it´s Sanna here again with another guest blog post and step-by-step. For today´s post I created a set of flower cards using a stamp masking technique. By adding a different sentiment, this basic idea can be used for almost any occasion.
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:
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.
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:
Hello there everyone, it´s Sanna here today with a scrapbook layout tutorial and a pair of cards. For this month´s tutorial I´ve again recorded a start-to-finish video for you to watch. But first, let me show you the layout. Valentine´s Day being just around the corner, I wanted to create something love theme related, so I made a scrapbook page about my younger son and a set of love themed clean and simple cards with some of the newly-released dies as well as some old favorites.
