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…

Creating cards with background dies is my latest obsession. Speaking of OBSESSION – Impression Obsession has a variety of MUST HAVE background dies that are absolutely perfect for jazzing up your cards or being the star of the show! Here is the latest card I put together. First I cut out several of the Sunburst Background die from Impression Obsession using black cardstock. I adhered three of them together and let the third one peek slightly from behind so that it is blacker around the sun circle. I pulled out my Picket Fence Studios Life Changing Blender Brushes – these are a serious blending game changer.  I used them to blend THREE of my favourite colours of Ranger Tim Holtz Distress ink onto a piece of Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock. These three colours look like a beautiful sunset! Using Art Glitter glue with a fine metal tip I adhered the…

Therm O Web products make adding foil to your project an absolute breeze! Here are a few cards I put together with a shiny finish. I created a card base using an Elizabeth Craft Designs die. Next, I started with a Therm O Web Deco Foil Toner Card Front. I sandwiched the card front into a piece of parchment paper, layered some Therm O Web Gina K. Designs Fancy Foils SHINY SIDE UP on top. Closed the sandwich and ran it through the laminator. WOWZERS! Those hearts sparkle. Next, I used a Therm O Web Gina K. Designs circle die to cut out a sentiment from the Therm O Web  Gina K. Designs Foil-Mates. I added the foil, in the same way, I added foil to the Toner Card Front. I wanted a little heart accent. So I took the Therm O Web Gina K. Designs heart die and cut…

I pulled out the Echo Park Paper Co. Baby Girl paper collection the other night and started to play. This collection is so soft and pretty to work with.  I created this card and although I don’t have anyone to give it to, I put it in my greeting card box that’s filled with cards for someone special when the time is right! I created the background using an Elizabeth Craft Designs die. The cardstock is from Ranger Simon Hurley Create – it just might be my favourite right now. I turned the die into a sticker using Sookwang double-sided adhesives. For the final touches, I used the coordinating Echo Park Paper Co. Baby Girl Sticker Book.  This book is SERIOUSLY PACKED with stickers!!! I added dimension to the card using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares. Here is a FASTFORWARD look of the card coming together. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9MieVt_6oBc Have…
