Non-Traditional Thanksgiving Card

November 8, 2018
Non-Traditional Floral Thanksgiving Card

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:

A Ribbon Tree Christmas

October 23, 2018

 

Hello – Welcome! Samantha here, sharing some Christmas-themed inspiration today. I’m loving all things Christmas at the moment. Even my local shopping center has starting displaying Christmas baubles and trees for sale…it’s hard not to get excited about how quickly Christmas Day is approaching. With that being said, I really wanted to create a few more simple cards to add to my Christmas card stash. I went with non-traditional colours to break up how much red, green and Kraft brown I’ve been using lately!

‘Tis The Season

September 17, 2018

Greetings! Samantha here. Today I’m sharing some Christmas-themed cards using Elizabeth Craft Designs’ Snowflake Border. Snowflakes aren’t something I would see at Christmastime where I live (in Australia) but I have always loved the idea of a white Christmas. For my cards today I decided to use some non-traditional colours and partnered the die with the newly-released Classic Christmas Sentiments stamp set.

Fall Flower Lace Frame Card

Fall Flower Lace Frame 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: Continue Reading

Stripes Background and Simple Masking

August 16, 2018

 

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.
