DIY Foam Stamp Background Cards

May 12, 2017

Hello everyone,

It´s Sanna here, and it´s my turn to post a tutorial for the Die Cut Design Team. Today I decided to share a DIY foam stamp idea with you. Sometimes when you look at a die you wish there would be a stamp like that available too. That is what I thought when I saw the new ModaScrap dies! They can be used to create gorgeous stamps and I´d like to show you how I made some DIY foam stamps as well as how I used the stamps for card backgrounds.

Celebration and Award Ribbons

April 29, 2017
Celebration and Award Ribbons by Judi

By Judi Kauffman

Our dog was a champion before she retired and came to live with us. Her ribbons were fabulous – a pleated rosette around a big padded circle with gold printing at the top, long tails cascading below. They serve as an inspiration for today’s project: Ribbons to make for friends to celebrate a birthday, anniversary or other special occasion or give as an award to someone who has triumphed over illness or adversity.

I chose Live, Laugh, and Love – A Way With Words dies that are longtime favorites. ‘Live’ goes to the friend who is five-years cancer-free. ‘Laugh’ goes to the friend who brings smiles no matter what is going on. ‘Love’ goes to my husband.

But you don’t have to choose the same dies or sentiments! It’s very easy to customize this project.

Decide what you want to say and size the circles and fishtail ribbons accordingly. Suzanne Cannon’s A Way With Words collection offers so many options.

Floral Blessings with Butterfly

April 15, 2017

Nothing says Spring has arrived as much as flowers and butterflies.  They are also really easy to combine to make a sweet card!  I just got some beautiful new dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs, including the new Dancing Butterflies set.  I’ve been on a gray kick lately – it’s such a nice soft neutral color and goes well with a more vibrant color.  Today I am pairing it with purple!

Monochromatically Beautiful

March 25, 2017

 

Hello!  I’m excited to show you this dramatic and beautiful card, easy to do by just combining some floral stamps and a bold die.  By making it monochromatic, the card is easy to replicate using any of your favorite colors.  It’s also a fun and relaxing card to make as multiples since there is coloring involved.  My favorite color palette changes daily and as you can see, I felt like reds with a splash of black for my choice the day this one took shape.  Read on for more information on how I made this beauty.

Brrrrrr!

February 18, 2017

Hello from Northern Virginia!  We’ve had the strangest (yet typical) weather here.  It can be 70 one day and dropping to freezing the next day… even snow followed by 60 degrees.  But one of those cold wintry days did inspire me to make this clean and simple card using A Way With Words Brrrrr die and the cardinal from the Elizabeth Craft Designs Garden Birds set.  I just think that bright shock of red is so pretty against the snow covered trees outside.

Play

January 16, 2017

Have you seen the new stamps and matching die sets available soon from Elizabeth Craft Designs? Good Morning, this is Selma Stevenson. Today I have designed a card using the Jungle Cuties stamp set, and as you can tell in the picture the stamped and colored animals, bird, and branch have been die cut for easy placement on the card.  I have also used one of the new A Way With Words die sets for the word ‘Play’.  Here is how I created this card.

My post today is a simple little snowman card. This card could be used as a Christmas Card but also could be used for a winter occasion. Here is how the card was made. Continue Reading

Happy Saturday to you!!!  Wanda here 🙂  It’s just 3 weeks until Christmas and I can hardly believe how quickly this year has flown by.   In the hustle and bustle of life we don’t always have time or take time to send out thank yous.  If I do make some, they are often something quick.  Sometimes I want to send a special thank you and I think this card would qualify for that!!   Continue Reading
