In My Thoughts

Hello everyone! I'm here with a thinking of you card for Poppystamps. This card can easily be made into a Valentine's Day card by switching out the sentiment.

I used alcohol ink on yupo paper to create a colourful panel from which I die cut the pretty Leaf Flourish Heart. Love how the heart pops against all the white!

Enjoy your week!

Sending Rainbow Love

Hello everyone! I have a sparkly rainbow card today using @heroarts and @memoryboxco products from scrapenmasse.com!

I used the Hero Arts Rainbow Heroscape Stamp Set and Rainbow Infinity Dies. Such a versatile duo of products for making rainbow cards for any occasion. I love that there are sentiments in this set that are curved and fit perfectly in the rainbow arch.

I die cut 4 rainbow pieces from glitter card stock. I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment on vellum and inserted it into my rainbow. For the clouds I covered some paper with double sided adhesive, die cut it, exposed the sticky side of the adhesive and covered it with flock. It adds a nice fuzzy texture to the clouds.

I mounted all my elements on a panel that was embossed with the Geometric Crystals Embossing Folder. This geometric pattern is a good for many card designs and adds some great texture.

Thanks for stopping by!

Wintry Shaker

Hi everyone! I have a wintry snowflake edge-to-edge shaker card today using products from Scrap en Masse!

I started by creating my background using Brusho Crystals on watercolour paper. I chose a few colours in blues and purples.

The snowflake dies are from Art Impressions Large Snowflakes and die cut them using DCWV Holographic Mat Stack. Love the different patterns and pretty colours that come in this pad.

I adhered the snowflakes onto my background and used some card packaging to create the shaker. I added adhesive to the back of the panel and folded over the edges of the packaging. I left one end open so I could add the shaker elements and adhered the last edge.

I finished off with a glittery sentiment. So much pretty sparkle and shine happening here!

Sparkly Poinsettia


Hello crafters! Sue here with an easy Christmas card. I used the Paper Rose Poinsettia Stencil with a variety of Distress Inks and let it dry.

After cleaning off the stencil I applied glitter paste over the inked design and let it dry and you end up with this gorgeous sparkly, raised image. Very festive! 

The sentiment was heat embossed with gold embossing powder and I added black gems to the flower centre. This technique makes for a nice flat card to put through the mail.

Leafy Swirl

Hi everyone! I made a shaker card using Marianne Design Tiny's Swirl & Leaves Dies. I die cut the swirl from my cardstock and used that as my shaker element with some seed beads.

I added a bit of Distress Ink around the swirl and flicked on some gold and red paint. The sentiment is Photoplay Speech Bubble Sentiments.

For the leaves I took watercolour cardstock and randomly applies different shades of red, orange and yellow and die cut the leaves from it. These leaves not only die cut but also emboss some raised areas onto the die cut.
