Be Brave

August 19, 2017


By Judi Kauffman

I’m excited to share a sneak peek at some brand new dies from Suzanne Cannon. They’ll be shipping soon, so be sure to watch for them! I chose a flourish from Calligraphic Elements 3 and used all four word dies that come in the Brave/Bold set (Be, Brave, Bold, Yourself).

It’s such an easy project and quite versatile. Make several to send as cards, but be sure to make one to keep. Display it framed or propped on a desk, bulletin board or dresser so you won’t forget to stay true to yourself and embrace life to the fullest.

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.
