Make a Wish Birthday Card

August 21, 2017

Hi everyone,

It’s Frances here and it’s my turn to post a tutorial for the Die Cutting Design Team today. As most of you know, I love pop up cards and I was super excited when I found out that we were getting a set of general pop up dies to create all sorts of fun projects. I designed a birthday card card using the new General Pop Ups die set along with a couple of other new dies that are being released this month. I don’t know about you, but I can never make too many birthday cards.

August 12, 2017

 

Hello!  Diana here today with not just one but two cards to share with you using just one die.  The initial setup takes a bit more time but it makes for two fun and shimmery cards.  I chose to use the A Way With Words Happy Birthday die as my focal point.  Sometimes you just don’t want to cover up the background too much, right?

Sunshine in the Valley

August 2, 2017

Hello Crafty Friends,

This is Anita here with another inspiration from Susan’s Garden.

Nature is a blessing bestowed upon human life and proximity to nature brings solace to us. So keeping this in mind, I moved away from my usual style of flower making and have used the CountryScapes Mountains die set to create my card. There is sunshine in the valley and a sparkling snow-filled landscape.

Hi Everyone!

Welcome back to Sunday Stamping with Hedgehog Hollow. First of all, let me thank you for all the crafty love you left on my first Sunday Stamping post.

Today I have a ‘Christmas in July’ theme for you, I know some of us need to create many, many cards; sometimes even into the hundreds.I wanted to give you some easy, stock designs you can make in multiples, and then as we draw toward the holiday season we will work on some extra special ones.  The posts will be a mix of Sunday Stamping and on my blog, so make sure you are subscribed to both so you don’t miss the inspiration! You can see the card we are making first in the photo above. The tutorial follows. I love the texture and shine in this card, I love an easy card I can make as multiples, plus glitter just makes everything better!

Summer Fun Slider Card with Glittered Beach Ball

July 8, 2017

Hello!  Diana here with a Summer Fun card I made after the Scrapbook Expo in Chantilly.  I had such a great time helping out at the ECD booth with the Silk Microfine Glitter demonstrations that I got some and continued to play with it once I got home.  At the Expo, I also picked up the Slider and Spinner die set. Here’s my card combining the two.  It’s been a while since I made a slider card and what I love about this die set is that there are four different shape slots you can make for the interactive feature instead of just the usual straight line.  The A Way With Words Dies ‘Summer’ and ‘Fun’ dies are the perfect topping for this card.

A Dahlia Canvas

June 28, 2017

Welcome friends to another post where I have used the beautiful Dahlias from Susan’s Garden, this time on a canvas. Creating the canvas reminded me of my childhood where I used to see my mother nurture these beauties while helping her in the garden. Working with flowers makes you fall in love with the nature all the more, and such has been my experience. Though I chose a canvas, you could adapt the idea for very special cards, shadow boxes, and other projects. Look at the close-ups and instructions then it’s your turn to replicate it!

Miss You – Garden Notes Dahlia Card

June 27, 2017

“My heart never knew loneliness… until you went away…”

Dear Friends,

In this age of faster communications, the Internet, messaging apps and social media platforms, it is easy to be connected to the people we love. But the fact remains that showing emotions has always been difficult, even with all of these new modes of communication.

Today I bring to you a lovely hand-crafted card that is a unique way to send a heartfelt message.

I have used the dahlia flower as the central theme. The dahlia is a symbol of inner strength, creativity and standing strong in your sacred values. Dahlia flowers also symbolize a commitment and bond that lasts forever, just like the bond of friendship with the one for whom you are creating this special project.
