Hi everyone! It’s Elena today and this time of year always makes me want to create some cards for Thanksgiving. I don’t own many traditional Thanksgiving themed stamps or dies so I decided to try an experiment to see if I could create a card with a Thanksgiving feel using the Color My Flowers stamps and dies from this past spring, but with fall colors and some easy, fun techniques. I like the result and hope you do too. It’s always nice for me to find new ways to use stamps and dies that I may not normally think of for certain holidays! Here’s how I made the card:
Hello everybody, it’s Sanna here today and I’d like to share a tropical flower card idea with you.
It has been an amazingly warm summer here in Austria this year and even today, while I am writing this post, we have +20°C. So now you understand why I am still in a summer mood. Thus, my guest design team post today will be a summer card.
Hi All! It’s Elena today and I am a bit of a Christmas fanatic. When I was a child, my parents always had poinsettias around during the holiday season and I think that’s why I always love poinsettia stamps and have amassed quite a collection. This new Poinsettia Clear Stamp set from Krista Schneider is among my favorites because it has everything you need to create a lovely floral arrangement for a classic poinsettia Christmas card. I grabbed my alcohol markers to color this version, but the coloring possibilities are endless with this set. Here’s how I made the card:
Hi everyone! It’s Elena today. Fall is almost upon us so I wanted to try creating a brightly-colored fall card using the very intricate Flower Lace Frame from ModaScrap. I have added colored paper behind these kinds of dies before but never with hand shading coloring and I wanted to see what would happen. The result reminds me of Talavera or Majolica pottery with the bright colors, spacing between motifs and the overall pattern. What do you think? Here’s how I made the card:
Hello everyone, it´s Sanna Lippert here and it´s time for my September guest blog post tutorial. I created a fun and easy-to-do masculine card using the Backyard Barbeque die cut set and plenty of Soft Finish Cardstock for this month’s card.
Hi, it’s Elena today. Is it just me or are the days flying by this summer? Christmas card making time is creeping up on me, but I wanted to take a moment to celebrate summer before it’s over with a pop-up card featuring the Sand Castle die set from Joset van de Burgt. The set is so cute, and believe it or not this pop-up card is easy to put together and doesn’t take that long to make. Here’s how I created it:
Hello! It’s Elena today with a Fun in the Sun Shaker Card. I was able to capture (I hope) the essence of summer with a bright color palette of turquoise, yellow, orange, red and white along with great stamped images from the Sun & Surf clear stamp set. Although it is a “happy summer” card, you could easily adapt it as a birthday card, especially for a teen or a guy who likes to surf.
Hi! It’s Elena today and I have been wanting to use the Cacti Clear Stamps from Krista Schneider for a while now. Cactus and succulent-themed cards seem to be very popular these days and Krista’s stamp set is so cute that I had to jump in and make my own version. I used two different easy watercolor techniques with a bit of die cutting and of course – glitter!! Here’s how I made the card:
