Masking and Mixing

May 11, 2018

Hi Everyone!  It’s Karen here.  My cards today include a few of my favorite things.  They have flowers, they have a combo of Kraft and white papers, and they have adorable Elizabeth Craft Design images!  Perfect!  My post shows how I do masking using sticky notes.  I am also mixing it up using two stamp sets on each of the two cards.

Mom’s Birthday

March 14, 2018

It’s Karen here.  My mom’s birthday was at the beginning of March.  I wanted to wait to post her card until I was sure she got it.  My mom is the smartest, prettiest, most wonderful woman in the entire world.  (I know a lot of you have moms like that!)  I wanted to make her an extra special card for her birthday so I used the really cool Gift Wrapped stamps and coordinating dies along with the Butterfly Dreams paper.  To jazz it up just a bit more, I added a pop-up to the inside.  With the General Pop-Ups dies, it’s so EASY!

A New Year’s Birthday Present

January 12, 2018

It’s Karen here.  One of my good friends recently had a birthday.  I wanted to make her something.  What’s better this time of year than a new calendar!?  Using coasters as a base, I created this fun desk calendar for her!  She is into butterflies and loves the idea of transformation, so transforming bar coasters into a cute butterfly calendar is, I hope, the perfect gift.  The paper I chose is the 12 x 12 ModaScrap Fly & Scrap collection.  It’s simply beautiful!

Z-Fold Pop-Up Christmas

December 5, 2017

It’s Karen here.  A couple of weeks ago the designers were challenged to make pop-up cards using the General Pop-Ups die set.  I remember making my first pop-up with all the crazy measuring, scoring and folding.  Now, with this die set, it is SO easy!  I was inspired to make a Z-fold card by my good friend Sharon and decided to include a pop-up.

Just Chillin

October 3, 2017

It’s Karen here.  I’m excited to be showing a Christmas card I made today.  As we get closer to the holidays, my Christmas cards tend to go to traditional colors, but while it’s still hot outside (like now), I make them with very non-traditional colors and papers.  Do you have a preference?  I like them both ways!

Pretty Flower Thank You

August 1, 2017

It’s Karen here with a card I made for a co-worker.  This person plans events for the division in which I work and doesn’t seem to get much appreciation for what she does.  She planned and organized an event for my unit and I wanted to thank her in a special way.  Using the FuN and new Blossom Time stamp set and Butterfly Dream paper, I made her a pretty card and tucked a gift card inside.  I hope she likes it!
