Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here. I have a sweet and simple card to share with you using sentiments to create a background. I used the Garden Party Clear Stamps from Krista Schneider. Below you will find the steps to create your own card.
Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″ and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (A2)
Step 2 – Trim Soft Finish Café au Lait to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″. Stamp Garden Party sentiments (Bloom, Blossom, Grow) using a soft brown Ink. You could mix it up but I decided on the sentiments repeating on each row. Diecut Garden Notes Frame It Stitched Squares. Save the inner square. Diecut Dashing Rectangles and adhere to card using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.
Step 3 – Stamp Garden Party image onto White Soft Finish Cardstock using Gina K Amalgam Ink. This is an alcohol friendly ink. Color in the image using alcohol markers. I used Tri-Blend Markers by Spectrum Noir. Diecut the image with the matching die.
Step 4 – Diecut Dotted Scallop Squares using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Adhere the center square from Step 2 on top of the Dotted Scallop Square diecut and then the diecut image using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape. Optional – Wrap some twine around the bottom 3 times and tie a bow. Adhere to card using foam tape.
This card can be used for any occasion. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
It’s Frances Byrne here and it’s my turn to post a tutorial. Today I am sharing a Christmas card I created using the new Polar Bear and Snowflakes die sets from the Joset Designs release that came out earlier this month.
Hi Friends, it’s Sandy Diller here to share a project that would be good as a keepsake or a gift. I was in my local craft store a few weeks ago where I saw the cutest little box that contained a photo album. I thought I would give it a try using my own measurements and decorations. We recently took a trip to the beach so I thought this would be a good way to save some fun photos.
This is the heart of birthday season for me. Many of my friends and family have a birthday between now and the end of September. I went through my birthday card stash last week and realized that I need to make several more. Oh darn! I guess that means more time in my craft room. 🙂
Today I am sharing two birthday cards created using the same instructions, stamps and dies. The focal point of each card front is the funny quote from the Happy Birthday Collection stamp set by Suzanne Cannon: “Blow out the candles…”. The instructions below list the products I used.
I always enjoy stretching my stamps by using non-holiday stamps for holiday cards, mixing them with some holiday-themed accessories. For this card, I have combined flowers from the Laundry Party Clear Stamps with Easter eggs from the Spring Sentiments Clear Stamps set to create a bright and colorful Easter greeting. Here’s how I made the card: Continue Reading
Valentine’s Day is almost upon us and normally we think of reds, pinks and whites for this holiday. But being a color person, I decided to go in a completely different direction and create a super colorful card for a bit of an artsy twist on a Valentine. Here’s how I made the card: Continue Reading
I am a sucker for critters on Christmas cards and reindeer might be my favorite! So naturally, I had to create a card featuring the Reindeer & Birds Clear Stamp set. This set is so cute that it made sense to me to combine it with a funny greeting to create a whimsical card perfect for the Christmas-lover with a sense of humor. Here’s how I made the card: Continue Reading
Hi, it’s Sandy here with you today sharing two cards. It’s always fun to use our dies in an unexpected way and that’s what we are going to do. One of my favorite die sets is the Snowflakes and I’ve used it many times to make backgrounds or as a focal point on a card. This time I want to show you how to make a stunning Christmas wreath that is either elegant or festive depending on what colors are used.
Although I love the traditional deep reds, greens and golds of the holidays, on this gingerbread wreath card I instead used brighter pinks, greens and purples to create a fun, kid-friendly Christmas card. To me, the vibrant colors remind me of the candy pieces that typically adorn gingerbread houses and people and really captures the “Candy Land” feeling. Yum!
