Hello! Kim here with a quick card share using the Heartfelt Creations Summer’s Garden collection. For my card, I have used some patterned paper and the 2 craft die sets, shown in the photo below. These dies cut images found within the collection or can be used with coordinating stamps! The background of my card is cut from one sheet of patterned paper, to which I added some Therm-O-Web Transfer Gel Duo through a ‘well loved’ Stampers Anonymous stencil! I let the gel dry, then ran it through my laminator to apply some shimmery deco foil details. While the Transfer Gel Duo was drying I readied my elements for the card. I made my 3D flower, securing the layers with little snippets of my Elizabeth Craft Designs’ double-sided adhesive. I coloured my wooden sentiment [unknown supplier] with Ranger’s Distress Oxide Ink, Crackling Campfire was the perfect colour for my paper!…

Okay, I am seriously obsessed with the Simple Stories – Simple Cards Card Kits! They are ABSOLUTELY gorgeous and come with EVERYTHING you need to create 8 show-stopping cards! I created this card using the Simple Stories Hello Lovely Card Kit. So here is the story. As a scrapbooker, I can not send bought cards to my friends. I just can’t do it.  I feel like I am cheating on my supplies LOLOLOLOLOL.  And there are just times when I don’t have a card ready to go – these kits are soooooooooooooooooooooo the answer!  Beautiful designs, no scissors necessary, and of course you can add your special touches if you like. All you need is adhesives. And for this card, I used Glue Dots Adhesives Pop-Up! Dots and Permanent Gluetape. Did I mention that with the kit you can make 8 different cards? You sure can!  In 2-3 minutes, I…

Hello! Hello! Hello! Here on the East Coast of Canada, we are in and out of lockdown. Emotions are up and down and I am trying to make sure that I make time for creativity. Often creativity helps keep me calm and grounded.  So, here we are.  Image copyright 2021 Stampin’ Up! Today,  I am playing with Stampin’ Up!’s Hydrangea Haven bundle. This bundle came out with the new Occasions Catalogue that was released at the beginning of January. I seemed to be drawn to it for the ease in which the images could be coloured. But also because the sentiments are extremely fitting. Lately, everyone is having good and bad days – the sentiments are perfect to send to anyone. Spreading kindness through cards. The image is framed with the Rectangle Stitched Dies. I love that you can use the outside or inside of the die cuts in this…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a couple of cards I created with the Ruffled Peony Bouquet stamp set from Picket Fence Studios.  Picket Fence Studios is a family run business out of Louisiana and they manufacture some simply stunning stamps and stencils.  Use the entire peony bouquet on the card, or snip out one or two flowers and some extra leaves.  Ah, peonies.  Makes me think of spring. I stamped onto watercolour paper using Ranger embossing ink and heat embossed with black embossing powder.   I coloured the image with  Nuvo watercolor pencils from Tonic Studios..I then added a touch of glitter and more intense colour with Kirarich glitter highlighters from Zebra Pen.  These highlighter pens were just the perfect shade for my peony flowers and leaves. I used Tonic Studios Craft Perfect mirror and glitter cardstock from this mixed cardstock pack for my card base.  I have a weakness…

One of the greatest forms of flattery is to imitate or copy. In the world of scrapbooking or cardmaking, we are always flooding our brains with inspiration from several sources. My favourites source is Creative Scrapbooker Magazine. Whether browsing between the covers of the most recent issue or scrolling through their Facebook and Instagram feeds, their shares and styles always seem to match my own. Recently on Instagram, this card by @rlbreaks was shared and I loved it! It did not take me long to try to find a way to imitate it with the supplies I had on hand. It was a simple card to recreate in multiples to meet my Valentine’s needs! So be inspired! Imitate and copy with your own twist, but ALWAYS be sure to credit your source! That way they know they have inspired, it’s a WIN-WIN! Supplies: Ranger Industries: Distress Oxide Ink & Archival…

I can’t stop playing with this A Tree Die from Picket Fence Studios. Here is a quick little card I put together using it. I started by die cutting out 3 trees from Ranger Simon Hurley Create cardstock. I adhered two of the trees together and coloured the third with Ranger Tim Holtz Distress ink. I then adhered the coloured tree on top of the two trees with some of the white showing behind. Next, I blended three shades of Ranger Tim Holtz Distress ink onto a piece of cardstock. I used my Picket Fence Studios Life Changing Blender Brushes for a perfect blend. Next, I layed the Funky Leaves stencil from Picket Fence Studios on the background and added some white Distress ink. The look is very soft and subtle. I spritzed with water cause I LOVE those white water dots! With my Ranger Dina Wakley Media acrylic paint…

I am obsessed. You scream I scream, everybody wants ice cream! Stampin’ Up!’s new Ice Cream Corner Collection is adorable and I can’t stop playing with it! The collection comes with the Sweet Ice Cream stamp, Ice Cream Cone Builder punch, Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper, Blackberry Bliss ribbon, and the super sweet Ice Cream Corner Sprinkles. You can actually create projects with a stamp or simply use the images from the Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper as I have in the card below. I love this kind of versatility. It’s a bonus that the images look like watercoloured delicious-ness. Of course, you can also use the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set for a simple tag as can be shown here. While I didn’t, you can use the Ice Cream Builder punch to pop off the images and create dimension on any of your projects. I love the…
