Today I have the cutest card to share with you made from left overs!! So what do you do with a left over frame when you used the oval for an Easter Egg? Here is the card I created earlier this week which produced that left over frame ….
To view this blog post just CLICK HERE If you haven’t seen the post, it will show how I cut these.
I also used a sweet little turtle from the Rain or Shine Designer paper (I cut out a whole bunch of little critters) and then I used a daisy that I had punched out for another project, so all those odds and ends were brought together and created this sweet and simple card ….
The greeting works perfectly inside the frame (which is also cut from the Rain or Shine Designer paper). You can find it in the Good Feelings stamp set and I used the Tuxedo Memento Ink. To complete my card I used the Adhesive Backed Milky Dots… love those!!
Thanks for stopping by on this Sunday, hope you have a great day. Relax and Enjoy.
With the holidays upon us, are you ready for the Good Feelings and Peaceful Moments? Well … I’m combining these two stamp sets to create a fun and happy Birthday Card! I made this card for my Demonstrator Design Team this month.
The Tahitian Tide Designer Paper makes this card bright and fun! Check it out. I’ll be sharing instructions and the dimensions with you as well …
To create this card I am listing the measurements and instructions, plus the supplies needed … they are listed below and linked to my store so you can learn more about the product.
Card Base: Thick Basic White: 8-1/2” x 5-1/2”; score at 4-1/4”
Layer #1: Tahitian Tide Designer Paper Cut with Largest Scallop Die
Layer #2: Vellum Cardstock Die cut with second largest Scallop Die
Layer #3: Scrap for Greeting and Daisy (punch twice)
Cut and fold card base as listed above..
On Layer #2 (Card Front) Tahitian Tide paper: Using Scallop Contour Dies cut with largest scallop die and attach directly to card front.
Using Layer #2: Die cut vellum using second largest scallop die.
Ink greeting with White Craft ink and sprinkle with White Embossing Powder – Heat set with Heat Tool. (Option: Use Embossing Buddy prior to stamping to help prevent powder from sticking onto vellum cardstock).
Attach Layer #2 Card front to Layer # 1 Card Base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. (STAMP TIP: I lightly added glue behind the embossed words to hid it and keep it from showing through vellum)
Punch 2 Daisies out with Medium Daisy punch and adhere with Liquid Glue – making sure the petals are off set from each other. Attach with a Dimensional.
Stamp Happy Birthday greeting on piece of scrap and cut ends at an angle.
This sweet and fun card is sure to bring a smile to anyone’s face … young or old. And if you’re like me, you sure don’t mind a little sunshine when there is blizzard warnings lurking about!
Thanks for the visit today … I hope you feel inspired to create a little sunshine today!

So happy you joined me today for my Watercolor + Embossing card techniques. I have two cards for you today along with the replay video of last nights Facebook LIVE presentation. You’ll see how easy it is, and more importantly … FUN!
Let’s take a look at the video and then I will present the cards along with the ingredients and any dimensions you may need.
I hope you are falling in love with this beautiful technique, and as I stated in the video … using ink from your stamp pads on your blocks is a simple way to start. AND less messy!! For the Watercolor Wash Resist technique, I am using the “Shimmery White” Cardstock which is cut to a quarter sheet … 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ to start. I like to keep it simple.
The stamped image comes from the Good Feelings stamp set which is full of happy! You can check out all the sayings included in the set at the bottoms of my post.
Once dried, I used the 2nd scallop frame from the Scallop Contour dies to die cut our design out. I used the small die from the same set to create the pop of color around our large die cut image. These were then layered onto a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Basic Black and then layered onto the Basic White card base. While I had the White cardstock out, I punched two daisies and layered them onto my card … to finish it off, I used the Glossy Dots to tie it all together.
Now let’s take a look at the card that I designed from my second demonstration using the Splendid Thoughts bundle …
Embossing with the white emboss powder highlights your watercoloring and creates a soft beautiful look … watercoloring within an embossed image is easy and makes YOU look like the artist!! The soft look just pops against this stunning Fresh Freesia foil specialty paper from the Splendid Day Designer Paper. This was attached to the Basic White base is 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ scored and folded at 4-1/4″.
I used a medium scallop die to cut the Vellum cardstock on which I layered our watercolor images and die cuts from the beautiful foil paper. Layering the vellum onto the foil creates almost an iridescent look which just highlights the greenery even more.
Let me introduce you to the Charming Sentiments bundle … oh, I love this one!! So many greetings for so many occasions and they have coordinating and accent dies!! I love the way the greeting pulls my entire card together.
Thank you for hanging out with me today.
Here is the list of products I used on both of my cards. The bundles were selected just for you because they are so versatile and can be used year round … plus, either one will qualify you for a FREE Sale-a-bration item!! Let me know if you need any help with your order.
