Hello! Samantha here – Today I’m sharing a card I created that came about simply by stamping a background stamp. I tend not to use pattern paper as much as I used to, but I do love a good versatile background stamp. Elizabeth Craft Designs have a few background stamps that I have used (a few times now) to create my own patterned paper. Once I had stamped my background the idea developed to use a masking technique to create ink blended features using Birthday Sentiments and the co-ordinating Labels 1 Die.
Hello everyone, it´s Sanna here again with this month’s guest designer blog post. I created two baby cards for July´s post and had quite a pile of leftover die cut pieces. That gave me the idea to use the bits to create a multi-color die cut background and focal point for a fun children´s birthday card.
Hi, it’s Kelly Booth here today with a Colorful Balloon Card using A Way With Words dies. I love color and there is something so magical about watercolor to me. I thought the new Big Balloon die would be a perfect canvas for some fun color blending.
Hello Welcome! Samantha here sharing a card I created using two of my favourite Elizabeth Craft Designs dies. One of the things I love about dies is how easy and simple they are to work with. I had originally planned to colour the leaves in, but after colouring one in with Copic Markers I realised that it would take quite a decent amount of time and that I could achieve an equally striking and bright look by using some scrap left over pieces of cardstock that I have in my stash.
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!
With this month’s challenge theme I (finally!) got the chance to play with Elizabeth Craft Designs Silk Microfine Glitter. I loved it so much that all my cards this month feature it, his card included. Though it’s a clean and simple design I’ve added texture and sparkle to create a fun birthday card.
Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here today! I have a fun card to share with you combining a Do It Yourself Background and the Circles Background Stamp. Below are the steps to replicate this card/technique.
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.
Do you know who packages their products really well? Tech companies. Imagine the iPhone or iPad box – or any other electronic gadget… it’s usually in a really nice box – complete with that little magnetic flap. So when my husband asked if I wanted his headphone box, of course I said yes! I pulled out all my flower dies, thinking I was going to just pile on those 3D flowers for a really cute box and then I ended up with this super quick, clean, easy masculine recycled keepsake box. Go figure! But it’s perfect because I have little boys who fill their pockets (and the washing machine) with little rocks, game pieces, and whatever else they find – and one can hope they will use something like this. Read on to see how my plans got all turned around…
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.
