  • Rose Border Thanks

    An easy to make Thank You card for someone special. The rose die cut border on top is beautiful over what ever color you want to use. The greeting is half die cut, half stamped, but you can stamp the entire wording, if you prefer.

    A big congrats to Giovana, the newest Featured Stamper (FS886)! She has a gorgeous gallery & after much window shopping, I chose THIS card to case. I kept the multicolor design, but where she used a stencil I made a stripe background on glossy paper using dye reinkers & a baby wipe. Her white space is the stencil, mine is the die cut on top. I also kept the “everything” part but made mine a thank you card & added more white space for the bottom of my card.

    My card was pretty easy to make. The baby wipe (tutorial HERE) bg had been in my stash for a while so I die cut the rose border, added some white cardboard under it for strength, then attached it to the stripe background. The lower section that was cut off from the border was added back on, but I shifted it just a tad down. The very lower edge was trimmed off about 1/2″ so I could add a narrow strip of the background at the bottom.

    The Thanks die cut was stacked for dimension & the rest of the greeting was stamped underneath it.

    Thanks so much for stopping by!

  • Love Heart One

    A sweet Valentine or wedding/anniversary card made with the opposite (left over) pieces of Love Heart Two. I used the same die cuts plus a piercing, quilted look die on the white topper.  Some added pearls give it a little extra elegance.

    Even though the Love Heart Two posted first, this is the actual first card. Since I die cut all the pieces twice, once out of white & another out of the sweet designer paper, I found I could make two cards at once. Related, but not identical; sort of like fraternal twins. Don’t you love it when you can make a two-for-one?

    This is also for my Inspiration Challenge (IC948) on Splitcoast & THIS is my inspiration.

    Like my other card, I die cut the heart, birds out of white & the designer paper, then pieced them together. The white top panel was die cut w/ a quilted look piercing die. I attached flat back pearls in places where the diamonds came together. A tiny heart punch was used to add the pink heart in the center of the O in Love.

  • Dog is Fave

    A snarky fun Valentine featuring a cute mixed Dalmatian puppy, dog house, lots of stitched hearts & some pretty black and white paper to back it all up.

    It’s my turn to host the Featured Stamper Challenge (FS885) so a big congrats to Cindy! She has a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the Dalmatian & red, white, black colors, but used dies instead of images, turned mine vertical & made it a somewhat snarky Valentine.

    After die cutting the dog, hearts & dog house, I colored the white dog to look like a Dalmatian mix which resembles one of my dogs. I die cut the designer paper & a white polaroid frame & stamped the greeting in the lower left corner.  Then I attached the dog house, dog & the white frame & added some various sizes of stitched hearts.

    The dog, doghouse & frame are all popped up a bit for dimension.

    Thanks so much for stopping by!
