Thank Goodness!

The Stitched Flower Dies are AMAZING fun and thank goodness! Along with the Subway Tile Embossing Folder and the stamp set from the Sweet Girl Grateful For You Cardmaking Workshop. This card was created for a create and take at the Lakeshore Volunteer Fire Department Crop. The ladies who made it, just loved the card. These dies will fly off the shelf.

Cut out a white panel that is 5 1/4″ by 4″ and run it through the Cuttlebug in the Subway Tile Embossing Folder. Then distress the edges with ink color that matches the flowers cut out. Mount on the card with 3D foam tape. Stamp and mat the sentiment, adhering into the bottom right.

To get dimension with the flowers, I added small cuts between the petals. This allowed me to shape the petals. Shape the flowers with your fingers or a pierce/embossing tool. Distress the edges with ink that matches the flowers.

With the leaves, fold in the center carefully, to give them shape. Distress them with matching ink to the paper, like what was done with the flowers. Put the leaves down, figuring out the best placement for them. Overlap the flowers.

The size of these flowers will make them great for scrapbooking pages as well.

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!

It’s Your Day!

It’s your day or someone’s day when you receive of send out this cute card! Using the Something Fierce Paper Pack and Compliments, along with D 1827 Years of Sweetness, you can create this fun card.

You can see the dinosaur comes from the Compliments and is a sticker! You could even change the color of ribbon to be more specific to the gender or person’s tastes or leave it off. It nice to have a paper pack for boys and girls that has dinosaurs! Boy paper is hard to come by.

Ugly Sweater Anyone?

Ugly Sweater Anyone?

This card was created by Linda Black for the 50 Card swap using Oh What Fun Papers and C1729 Ugly Sweater.  The stamp set is funny, catching the humor of the ugly sweater fun of the holidays:

In addition to the stamp set and Oh What Fun papers, Linda embossed the sentiment with the Silver Tinsel Glitter Embossing Powder,

The cute little elves that adorn the sweaters are from the CTMH Cricut Collection Season of Joy!  These are the 3-D elves you can make with the cartridge.  Use the flatten feature, then print and cut!  How simple and fun is that?
