Bird on a Wire Interactive Card

Bird on a Wire Card

Since spring is upon us here in Colorado and I can hear birds singing in the trees, a brightly colored bird card seemed like a great way to celebrate. In this project, the bird is adhered to clear fishing line that can be twisted before placing the card in an envelope to create a “spinning” surprise when pulled out. Colorful and fun!

Here’s how I made the card: Continue Reading

Circles, Tea and Macarons

April 14, 2017

Happy Friday!  It’s Karen here with a couple of thank you cards. One of my goals for 2017 is to be more grateful.  To show that gratitude, I need more thank you cards!  I’m a tad-bit circle-obsessed.  Yes, it’s a strange thing to be, but what better way to feed my obsession than crafting with circles.  Today, I am going to show you a FUN way to use the Circle Background die along with the Tea Time stamps.

Box of Pansies

April 12, 2017

Hello out there my crafty friends. It is Christine here from Susan’s Garden Design Team.  Today I am posting a card I made featuring Susan’s Garden Notes Pansy die along with her Garden Notes Ivy Vine.  The color of the pansies comes from a photo I saw on Facebook last year that I fell in love with and the wooden box is because I love rustic, primitive things.

Smiles Required – Mixed Media Card

Smiles Required – Mixed Media Card

by Judi Kauffman

When it comes to mixed media, everything is fair game. Among the tools and supplies I pulled together for today’s card are the ModaScrap Poppies die set, A Way With Words ‘Play’ die, A Way With Stencils ‘Dotty’, Prills in two of my favorite colors, half of a mailing label that originally said ‘SIGNATURE REQUIRED’, a library card from the days before computers, a small metal folder tab, an office supply store label maker, strips of Kraft brown cardstock that were next to the paper trimmer, and a scrap of sequin waste encrusted with paint.

The project began with the strips of cardstock and the library card. Though you may not have precisely the same bits and pieces, as long as you keep in mind the letter ‘H’ or a ladder you’ll be able to make your own version!

I’m going to include what I call ‘Design Strategies’ along with the instructions. This is the ‘why’ part of design; the instructions are the ‘how’ part. Beginners: I hope this is especially useful to you!

(Experienced cardmakers – scroll through the photos and head straight to the supply list.)

Happy Easter Penny Slider

March 13, 2017

Hi everyone,

It’s Frances here today with a tutorial for the Coloring Design Team. With Easter only a month away I thought it would be fun to create an Easter Card using the Krista Schneider Woodland Pals stamp set and coordinating dies. There is a cute little rabbit in this set, making it perfect for Easter.

As you can see, I decided to create a Penny Slider card using Joset Designs Sliders and Spinners die set. It is optional as to whether you use pennies or cardboard circles for the spinner mechanism, however the weight of the pennies does make the image spin and slide better. Instead of a coin, substitute a metal washer. (Cover the hole in the washer with cardstock.)
