One Sheet Wonder with Love Blossoms

I watched Mary from Cardz TV doing this One Sheet Wonder with a 6″x6″ piece of paper. Super excited to find these 6×6″ One Sheet Wonders because CTMH has these samples swatches and they are 6×6″ sheets! What a great repurposing for these. When putting the cards together, I decided to add the stamping of the flowers on the card base and tags. There was too much white space for me.

The tags come from CTMH :

Here’s a FB Live I did showing you how to make 5 cards with a 6×6″ scrap:

Here’s my diagram I drew out since I’m not skilled at making cutting diagrams.

Here’s 2nd set completed!

Love Blossoms Fun

On Friday, I did a FB live opening up the Love Blossoms kit as I had just got it in.  You can see the live here. Please “love” and share it! When I get back from the cruise, if we have 25 shares, I’m giving away the mini ink pads. If we have 50 share, I’m giving away the mini ink pads and the Swiss Dot embossing folder!

Here here is what the stamps and card look like.

I made two cards on the fly just so I had a chance to play with the set before I left.

This card was fun and easy. The Swiss Dot embossing folder really make this card look classy. Did you see my solution for those crazy dove tails in the live? Start the middle cut with your cutter!

Use your clear shimmer brush to watercolor in the leaves and highlight the flowers and buds. Use the gold shimmer brush with the Canary ink pad to color in the middle of the flowers.

Stamp the envelopes. These flowers just beg to be seen and showing them off on the envelope will make everyone’s day bright as the letter goes through the mail! check out this live:

Enjoy and pick up the full kit for $55.95! Email me your order and you’ll get $10 through my Cruise Special. Check that out here!  

Thank for stopping by and enjoy the Love Blossoms set. It’s really fun to play with!

I Think You’re Cute ;)

I Think You’re Cute 😉

Since we are talking about shaker cards and Grateful Heart paper (which I can’t seem to stock enough for at the crops), here a card, ‘You’re Cute” I made for the 50 Card Swap I host.  Be looking for some awesome guest artists over the next few months.    Here is the stamp set, A1225 I Kinda Like You $7.95 USD.

You’ll need these following products to create your own shaker cards:

 

Don’t you love the plaid?  It speaks of Fall weather and I’m so ready for it.  Here in MD, we are finally getting some fall weather.  The 80s of last week are the 50s of this week.

The shaker has enough sparkles to make the sound you need for a shaker, keep the insides moving around, and still read the inside saying!  I have found out less is more when it comes to shaker cards.
