I Just Miss You Card

To make this card I used My Favorite Things Springtime Blooms, Simon Says Stamp Wide Stripe Background stamp, MFT Wonky Stitched Rectangle Stax, Lawn Fawn Everyday Sentiment Banners,  Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Mix and Wink Of Stella in Clear.

I first of all stamped the background onto a top folding card base with Versafine Onyx Black ink.  While this dried I stamped and coloured the flower.  I then die cut the soft blue layer and adhered the flower with foam tape.  I heat embossed the sentiment and die cut it.  I added this over the flower stem using foam tape again.  I then added a light layer of Wink of Stella and finished with a few sequins.

I am adding this card to the Less Is More - 325 challenge.

A Hipster Birthday Card

I made this card with Paper Smooches Incognito stamps and Glasses dies, My Favorite Things Wonky Stitched Rectangle Stax and Bazzill cardstock.

I began by die-cutting the glasses 3 times from black cardstock.  I adhered them together and added rainbow striped pattern paper as the lenses.  I then stamped the moustache and sentiment with pigment ink.  I used the wonky stitched dies on this panel to add a little detail.  This was then added to a top folding card base.  I finished the inside with the rest of the sentiment and stamped the moustache and glasses in pale gray ink.  The last step was to add Glossy Accents to the glasses frame.

Spring Weather Card

This card was made using Lawn Fawn Hello Sunshine dies, Paper Smooches Luminous Spring and My Favorite Things cardstock.

A very simple card with die cuts layered together and added to a top folding card base.  The sentiment was then stamped and finally the raindrops added and given some shine with Glossy Accents.

Get Well Soon Card


This card was made with Paper Smooches Borders 1 dies, Picked Raspberry Distress Ink, Mama Elephant Labeled Messages, My Favorite Things cardstock and Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Mix sequins.

I water coloured the white layer with several layers of distress ink and once dry I flicked on some white copic pigment.  I stamped the sentiment with versafine ink and die cut the border die twice to make the 'heartbeat' line....(do those lines have a proper name??)  Lastly I added a few sequins.

Black & White Sympathy card


Making sympathy cards is never easy and I struggle with what is appropriate.  I think the simplistic nature of this card eases that struggle for me.

I used My Favorite Things Bundles of Blossoms background stamp, Mama Elephant Labeled Messages, masking paper and Versafine Onxy black ink.

Firstly I stamped the sentiment and then masked it.  I then die cut a curve from some masking paper and added it making sure to partly cover the sentiment. It was then simply a case of stamping the background on to the card base.

I am adding this card to Less Is More - #323 - Curve

Striped Gerbera Card

Im back after another break from cardmaking and blogging.

I made this card with My Favorite Things Gerbera Daisy Die-namics, Watercolor Striped Background stamp, Blueprints 13 and a sentiment from Adorable Elephants.  I also used MFT cardstock, Versafine ink, pattern paper and glitter enamel dots from My Mind's Eye.

I stamped the background first and while it dried I die-cut the daisy, stamped the sentiment and made my top folding card base.  The background layer was die cut with the largest of the Blueprints dies and then I layered the other elements onto this.  The final step was to adhered the glitter enamel dots.

I am adding this card to CAS(E) this Sketch - #216



I also made this card following the sketch but used the Neat & Tangled Celebrate dies.

15th Birthday Card


This card was made using Impression Obsession Cover A Card Wooden Planks Background Stamp, Taylored Expressions Skinny Mini Party Borders, W Plus 9 Modern Numerals, My Favorite Things Inside & Outside Stitched Circle Stax and cardstock, Bazzill cardstock and Simon Says Stamp Birthday Messages and American Crafts Glitter Paper.

I began by stamping the background stamp onto Sugar Wafer cardstock using MFT Cement Grey ink.  I then layered this piece with a scrap of pattern paper and adhered it to a top folding card base.  Next I die cut the rest of the pieces and adhered them using foam tape behind the circle for dimension.  Since photographing this card I have added Glossy Accents to the numbers for an added texture.
