  • 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!

  • Hibiscus Hugs

    A card w/ lovely big blooms & a fab new die set for the layers. I also show how to change a previously pink flower into a red flower.

    It’s my turn to host the Inspiration Challenge (IC904) & I chose Playing Card Decks & their Pinterest Board. I was thinking..hmm April Fool’s Day which led me to Joker which led me to Playing Cards & here we are. I selected THIS pretty deck as my inspiration. It’s a poppy but it reminded me of this pretty new floral set which may or may not be a hibiscus but it looks like one from above & that’s my story & I’m sticking to it.

    Originally I had colored this in pinks but I went back in & added some reds to change it up. (You can see the original pink color in the Copics pic below.)  I die cut 2 white layers & backed them w/ peach layers. The hibiscus was fussy cut & it and the top layer were popped up a bit.

    It’s an easy card since I let the layers do all the work.

    Here are the Copics I used:

  • Rose Wreath

    A thank you card w/ a lovely rose wreath..so easy to add color w/ the matching 4 pt stencil, & coordinating die. You’ll love the pretty new spring paper, too.

    A big congrats to Erin, the newest Featured Stamper (FS841)! She has such a lovely little gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the pretty wreath & most of the colors, but made mine a thank you card, used a stamped wreath & designer paper for the background instead of a lattice.

    My rose wreath was stamped first w/ Memento & I left it in the Misti. I used the 4 part stencil to sponge the color in on the roses & leaves then I overstamped it w/ Versaclair nocturne to get the very dark outline. I knew the Versaclair might smear if I stamped it first, so that’s why I added it last. After it was die cut, I added dimensional foam to the back of it. I also elevated the sage green panel a bit after I stamped the greeting onto it.

    The lovely paper was cut into a frame using 2 sizes of the stitched rectangles & I also added 2 layers of heavy card behind it to lift it up. Some stickies was added to the flower centers & little berries around the wreath.

    Thanks so much for stopping by!
