Love birds

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

Today, I'm swinging in to share a fun and sweet love card.


Fun, yeah?!...So I started my card by die cutting all the images (except for the 'love' word) out. The heart, birds, etc. After, I did some ink blending with all of the die cuts. Pretty straight forward and simple, right?!...Once done with my blending, I assembled things together and then added things to my card. Easy peasy. ;) To finish things off, I chose to use the 'love' word die with gold glitter cardstock. Simple, yeah?!...

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!

Emboss Resist Technique with Karen Reategui


Hello friends! Today I’m over Jillian Vance Design sharing this CAS card using the emboss resist technique. For this card, I’m featuring the Thank You Stamp Set, Distress Oxide inks and WOW! Embossing Powders.




Let’s begin! I started by stamping the Thank You sentiment all over my panel using WOW! Embossing Pad and heat embossed them with WOW! Honeydew Embossing Powder.




Next, I applied Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide inks using one Life Changing Blender Brush. Then, I wiped out the excess of ink using a cloth and adhered a white card base at the back using glue.




Finally, I stamped the big Thank You sentiment using WOW! Tanzenite Embossing Powder, cut it and placed it on top of the panel using foam tape. As a final touch, I added a few sequins and Nuvo drops and my card was done! Thank you so much for stopping by and have a marvelous day!

hello spring...

Hello and happy Wednesday everyone!  Did you enjoy all the birthday celebrations going on this past week?  Rosemary here today with a card that I created using one of the new stamp sets from this release.  The set is call Eternal Spring and it is beautiful!  There are great sentiments, a fabulous background stamp and a floral image.  Perfect for making cards to celebrate spring or just about any occasion.  I also used the Dear Daisy stamp set and the banner die from the Instant Photo Frame 2.0 die set.


I started my card by stamping the background image on cream cardstock using a very light pink ink to create a very subtle background and then die cut with the largest Stitched Dot rectangle die.  The large daisy was stamped on some patterned paper using the same ink and then I trimmed it out making sure to remove the leave.  I stamped just the leaf portion of the image onto the green dotted paper with a green ink, trimmed it out and adhered it to the daisy.  The sentiment was centered on the daisy and stamped with the same ink I used to stamp the leaf.  Three banners were die cut from paper that coordinated with the flower and adhered to the main panel.  I wrapped some yellow twine around the panel, tied it in a bow and then adhered the panel to a light gray cardstock base with foam tape.  I finished by adhering the flower with additional foam tape.  I used the sketch from Sunday Stamps for my card so I will post it there.

Congratulations, Grad!


Hello, Bunny here! Jillian is busy cutting the cards for our April show class, so I will be on the blog for a couple of her days!
IF you are in Ohio and would like more info...please check out Adventures in Stamping, it is a great show! http://adventuresinstamping.com/

So what did you think of that awesome release? So many cute and classic designs to use!

So I just love this cute little Spring Birdie! For this card, I put him on the branch that is included in the set...that way if you don't have the Cozy Cottage Birdhouse the die set can still be used as a stand alone set! That little berry branch is included as well, I cut it in red then used watercolor marker to color the rest brown.
It is hard to see in the photo but I used the Woodgrain INKboss Plate to give the background some texture! I used my MISTI stamping tool so if I needed to really press that sentiment in, I could stamp multiple times...but one time is all it needed for a great impression!

You may have gotten the idea that I LOVE the new Spring Birdie Die... today I've created another birthday card and here's how I was inspired:



You can cut this cute birdie out of any kind of paper you want... I've been loving to cut her from Copic friendly paper and color her in, but soon I'll be using her in a different way (yes, today she's a she!)

And what about that Signature Polka Cover Plate??? It's so fun and makes a great backdrop for just about any card!  (Speaking of... did you see ALL of the fun Ardyth had with this cover plate?? You should definitely check it out when you're done here!  You can find hers here!)


And the Make A Wish stamp set??  Definitely a must have .. so many fun birthday sentiments not to mention that big old present!  And some of the sentiments lend themselves nicely to being cut out on the Scan N Cut.  I built my sentiment here with a combo of the Happy Birthday from Make A Wish and the Headline Type Alphabet die set (such a great sized alpha!!)  The Birthday is connected to the Happy in one area so I simply cut it away and used some white gel pen to cover up the extra ink and did the same with the 'day' from birthday.  Fun right?!

Please enjoy the video as I try to explain...how to create this Iris along with showing a rose type of begonia that can also be created! The possibilities are only limited by your imagination! You can also create a Tulip using this die set as well....there might just need to be a video of that on the horizon!

Sorry the release graphic is upside down in the video...Jillian has no idea why! I only do them I have NO CLUE how to edit! :) We are iced in today to no going to correct it at the salon with good wifi!



I am loving the flowers from this release! So many possibilities besides what their names are!

Easy peasy card here!
Created the iris and just plopped it in the pretty silver vase!
You can use any sentiment to switch up the occasion! I am loving the new Stitched Sentiment Quartet Dies...so versatile and fit most sentiments!
You can also add brads in the rounded ends if you wanted that type of look!

For this card I put the Iris and daffodils in a bouquet.  Nothing like a bright spring bouquet on a dreary old day! I used the Eternal Spring Background stamp for the background stamped in Tiara Catherine Pooler ink. Then just arranged the flowers! Added the bow from Merry Mistletoe because it was the perfect size and there is a pretty card for any occasion!
