Thank You

Hello everyone! I hope that you are well. Today I am sharing a thank you card that I made using Altenew's Peony Bouquet stamp set. I have had this stamp set in my stash for a while and I have so many challenges in lining up the stamps. I felt like making a card with just stamps as I haven't made a card like that for a while so I sat down, watched a few tutorials on Youtube, failed miseably, gave up and tried again but tried a differently and finally did it ....Yah!!!! If you like me have had problems lining these stamps up, this is how I did it.

I had to use my MISTI. I stamped the outline stamp first, then the first detailed stamp, then the second detailed stamp and finally the solid image. This worked for me for all of the stamps in this stamp set. You also have to look straight down over the stamp to line it up before inking it up on the MISTI.

This is just a quick post.

Thanks for stopping by!

Pop Up Christmas Card ~ Kaisercraft

Hello everyone! I am back with another Christmas card. I have decided to join in the December blog challenge over on the Kaisercraft blog where this month you are invited to create a Christmas card using any past paper collection from this year. Earlier this year, I purchase a Silhouette Cameo and decided that I would use it to make my card.

To change things up for a change, I have focused on the inside of my card. Usually I spend the majority of my time on the front, but I love interactive cards. I thought that the vintage feel of this collection and this pop up scene worked well together.

Enjoy the Little Things ~ Kaisercraft ~ plus a tutorial

Hello everyone! I am thrilled to be sharing with you a card that I have created using the brand new Wandering Ivy Collection. It is a gorgeous collection with so many floral images, deep blues and purple tones that are perfect for creating projects for so many occassions. The card that I am sharing with you today is an all occassion card with an uplifting sentiment, a perfect go to card to have in your stash.

 I have used the stamp set to create my own sentiment and focal point of my card. This technique is shared in the video below.

Modifying the paper blooms and adding a flat back pearl adds a vintage feel to the card.

Using mounting foam adds dimensions and adds interest to your cards. It helps to showcase the layers of beautiful patterned papers that you have used in your card design.

Below is the video tutorial which explains the process in creating this card.
