You make my world complete

Hey y'all! Shelly, here.
Happy Friday!!

Today, I'm sharing a fun shaker card with you!

I started with making my shaker. I stamped on my 'world' using a deep aqua color ink on white cardstock. After, I used a square die for my card shape and circle die for my 'window'. Before adding my clear acetate to my window, I stamped on my sentiment piece in black ink and then used my heat gun to dry it. Once done, I added my acetate to my window and then added foam tape on the back and added some fun little shaker bits to my 'world'.

To finish things off, I added a globe stand using black cardstock and then adhered my whole shaker onto a stone color cardstock base.
Simple and fun, yeah?!...

Enjoy your day!

Faux CoverPlate Birthday

Good morning! Ardyth here with a fresh spring card. Now, if only spring would arrive! ;-)

I started with a 4.25 x 5.5 panel of white cardstock. I used the 2 largest Stitched Dot Rectangle dies to cut a frame. 

I cut a bunch of Daisies from the same white cardstock and then I used removeable adhesive to lay them out on a scrap piece of paper, making sure I was happy with the placement. I then ran that scrap with the daisies through my die-cutting machine with the 2nd largest Stitched Dot Rectangle die. This ensured that my daisies would fit perfectly in my frame.

I used some Glad Press'n Seal to lift the daisies off the scrap paper. I then put permanent adhesive on their backs before laying the whole thing back into my frame on my card base. If you don't have Glad Press'n Seal, you can easily reposition the daisies yourself, one at a time.
I cut the daisy centres from white cardstock and blended Catherine Pooler inks on them, using a darker colour on one side to give the illusion of dimension.

I finished the card with a die cut sentiment.

Here's a quick video:

Christ the Lord is risen...

Happy Wednesday friends!!  I have an Easter card to share today that I made with the beautiful Simply Said:  He is Risen stamp set, as well as the Three Calvary Crosses die and the new Stitched Plaid cover plate.

I started my card by inking up some white cardstock with Wild Honey distress oxide ink.  I love how easy it is to ink up cardstock with the distress oxide inks!  Once that was done I positioned the largest sentiment from the Simply Said:  He is Risen set and stamped it with VersaFine CLAIR Nocturne ink.   The Three Calvary Crosses was then positioned on the cardstock piece and then embossed into the cardstock.  Once that was done I die cut the piece with a mid-size Stitched Dot Rectangle die.  I had been wanting to make something with the Stitched Plaid cover plate since I got it and decided to use it with my card.  I die cut some white cardstock and removed all the little bits and pieces.  I then adhered the sentiment panel to the die cut piece.  Foam tape was positioned behind the rectangle and along the edges of the panel and then the piece was adhered to a yellow cardstock base.

He Is Not Here... He Is Risen!

Hello everyone... Helen is here today. Easter is getting closer... I have an Easter themed card to share with you. It is very easy to create it :)

First, I created the green watercolored background by adding green watercolor paint on a piece of watercolor paper using waterbrush. I dried the paint between layers to get some texture.

I cut out a heavyweight white cardstock using the Flower Burst Cover Plate. I added the watercolored panel right under the die cut panel, then trimmed the extra edges. I added this panel on the front white card with dries-clear adhesive glue.

Next I stamped one of the sentiments from the Simply Said: He Is Risen Stamp Set on a white cardstock with green ink pad using stamping tool. And then I trimmed it into a banner. I added some mini staplers on top of it and added it on the card with 3D foam tape.

Card is done :) Pretty simple and quick. I hope you enjoy this post today. Have a fabulous day, crafty friends!

White Rose With Sympathy

AJVD, Kecia Waters, rose, white embossing, sympathy
Sympathy cards are difficult for many reasons.  Kecia Waters here today on the blog, sharing a quick, but elegant design for a sympathy card.

On a gray cardstock base, I stamped the rose and sentiment from the AJVD stamp set "Beautiful Rose" with Versamark Watermark ink.  I applied white embossing powder and heat embossed.  I placed onto a white cardbase.  I adhered a red heart as a finishing touch.

AJVD Stamp Set:

Thanks so much for visiting the AJVD blog today.  Here's wishing you a very pleasant week ahead.

Monday smiles,

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Hello, Lisa Hoel here to wish you a happy St. Patrick's Day! I hope you are wearing some green. ;-) Today is my Mom's birthday too so I usually make her an appropriately themed card each year.

I started with making a background of Distress Oxide Inks - Cracked Pistachio, Lucky Clover and Twisted Citron. I die cut it with the Flower Burst Cover Plate to layer over the white card base. Before I glued it onto the base however, I used some of the new Distress Resist Spray to very lightly spritz the die cut. The resist spray leaves a raised splatter that you can then sprinkle with embossing powder and heat set (I used gold). It gives it a nice texture and a bit of bling. I wrapped gold thread around the front of the card and attached a clover charm with a Pear Pin.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great weekend!

Happy Easter Eggs

Hey y'all! Shelly, here.
Happy Friday!!

Today, I'm swinging in to share a fun Easter card with you!

I started with making my shaker. First, I chose some patterned paper and used it with the peep/bunny die as well as the stitched dot backdrop die. After I added my clear acetate and foam tape on the back. Then added it to my card base and for the filler I used some fun colorful balls.

Once having my shaker done, I added some fun Easter eggs and a banner with my sentiment on it. To finish everything off, I added a touch of twine. Simple and fun, yeah?!...

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!
