A Simple Note

Well, of course that meant crafty time for me! Which leads me to today's share! This happens to be another of my absolute favorite bundles in the new catalog. It's called Flourishing Phrases and it is absolutely beautiful and it's quite versatile having many sentiments to choose from in addition to the floral and leaf patterns and the bold flourish.

A Simple Way to Let Them Know You Care!

Hi there! I hope you’re week has had a great start. Today, I want to share a super simple card with you that packs a lot of adorable punch. What makes this card so simple is that it uses 1 stamp set, hostess set, Time of Year, 1 piece of cardstock cut 5 ½” x 8 ½” scored at 4 ¼” (Whisper White) and 3 ink pads, Memento Tuxedo Black, Flirty Flamingo and So Saffron. A few rhinestones later and you have a pop of WOW!

I began by stamping the “Thinking of you” slightly off center toward the left of the card followed by the “always” banner in Flirty Flamingo. I then added the flowers from the stamp set in So Saffron and Flirty Flamingo. As a final touch, I added a rhinestone to the center of the flowers. And that was it. Fast, simple and oh so pretty.

What do you think? Leave a comment below and let me know. You can obtain all of the supplies here by visiting my on-line store. The Hostess set, Time of Year, can only be obtained by hosting a qualifying party or placing an order of at least $150 to earn Hostess benefits.  If you have any questions or are interested in hosting a party either in person or virtually via Facebook, please let me know. I would love to help you earn this great stamp set.

Happy Stamping,

Show some Love

Hello again and Happy Saturday! Here is another absolute favorite of mine from the new catalog, the Sunshine Sayings bundle. The possibilities are endless for this set, but here is just one idea:

The card base is Basic Black cut 5” x 10” and scored at 5” to create a 5” x 5” card. The Whisper White layer is 4 ¾” x 4 ¾”. I stamped the “scribble” flower from the stamp set using Versamark ® ink and heat embossed with Whisper White embossing powder a total of 5 times.  I then colored each flower  with my Aqua-painter alternating with Flirty Flamingo ink and So Saffron ink. I then die cut the word Love from Basic Black cardstock for a total of 3 using the coordinating Thinlits and adhered them together to give the word dimension and adhered the entire piece to the card front and then adhered that down to the card base. As a final touch, I “painted” the Love piece with clear Wink of Stella™. And that my friends, completes our card for today.

I truly hope you enjoyed today’s card. I welcome any and all feedback so please feel free to leave me a comment below and wish you all a wonderful weekend.

Happy Stamping,

Color Blocking

Good morning! Today I want to share with you a really simple technique that creates some really cool backgrounds for your cards, it's called Color Blocking or Ink Blocking! It's where you take your acrylic blocks and ink the directly, spritz with water and apply the dampened ink directly to your cardstock! You can get so many variations of color and designs from this technique depending on the size and shape of the acrylic block, the amount of water used and of course the many ink colors to choose from.
Here is my example:
I used the new In-colors, Peek-a-boo Peach, Sweet Sugarplum and Flirty Flamingo and the stamp sets used are GreateSt Greetings and Wild about Flowers. So, the next time you pick up your acrylic blocks, give this technique a try. You will be amazed at the wonderful designs you will come up with!
