Easter card

Hello and Welcome! Here today with an Easter card featuring Stamp Simply's "Caring Coneflower" stamp and die, along with their "He has Risen" Bible and sentiment set!

I began by stamping the coneflower stamp onto cardstock with Memento Gray Flannel ink, then coloring it with Copic Sketch markers. The image was then die cut with the matching Caring Coneflower die.

The base is made up of springtime prints from Echo Park's "My Favorite Easter" decorator paper pad. The "He has Risen" Bible verse is stamped directly onto the gingham base layer with the Memento Gray Flannel ink.

 The bloom is attached with dimensionals, yet is fairly flat to mail with no problem. Easy to make and mail!

Springtime Bunnies

Getting ready for some springtime sunshine and bunnies!

Love these fun Tim Holtz Sizzix "Carrot Bunnies" dies. They are easy to create, die cutting them from a single white piece of cardstock, then coloring each die cut piece with Copic markers. 

The colorful base of the card uses Echo Park's "My Favorite Spring" decorator paper. The grass is snipped with Martha Stewart shears which cut numerous grass blades at a time.

All stamps and dies (including the bunny dies above!) on sale through the end of the month at Stamp Simply. Check them out!

 Have a wonderful Friday and weekend!

Thinking of You Rose

Here today with a pretty card that lets the image and paper do all of the talking! I've used Stamp Simply's "Thinking of You Rose" stamp and die sets to make a card perfect for pretty much any occasion.

I stamped the Thinking of You Rose onto white cardstock with Memento Gray Flannel ink. The image was then copic colored, then die cut with the Thinking of You Rose die. I stamped the "rose" sentiment with Tim Holtz Distress Spun Sugar ink, then also die cut that with a die from the Thinking of You die set.

The rose image and sentiment are mounted on a oval cut with Spellbinder Classic Oval dies. The gingham decorator paper used is Carta Bella's "My Valentine." 

Simply pretty! All linked supplies come from Stamp Simply.

Be Still and Know

Hello! Welcome as today I'm featuring some encouraging words using Stamp Simply products! The entire team at the Stamp Simply blog is presenting cards of encouragement this week! 

My card is very simple to make and suitable for mailing. 

Quick and easy!

 I began by layering a card base of rustic white cardstock with some lovely Craft Consortium "Monochrome" designer paper. Love the subtle marbling print of the paper!

I die cut a cross three times using Stamp Simply "Crosses" steel die set and glued all three layers together for dimension.

The Stamp Simply Bible verse comes from the stamp set "Words of Encouragement" and is stamped with Versafine Clair Morning Mist ink and die cut with Spellbinder Circle dies.

That's it! So clean and simple!

Christmas Gifts

 Merry Christmas from our house to yours! We are still experiencing blizzard conditions; hoping that it will die down before we come together for Christmas dinner tomorrow afternoon. Thankfully we still have power and heat.

I've put together some little 6 x 6" wood panel gifts for some of my family using numerous Tim Holtz products along with some of my paper stash:

This first one uses Tim Holtz Sizzix Cardinal that has been retired. The red bird rests on diecut Tim Holtz Sizzix Holiday Greens Mini thinlet branches. The bird and branches are both colored with Tim Holtz Ranger Distress and Distress Oxide Ink Sprays. The backdrop is a piece of decorator paper from my stash. The cardinal has a bright black jet Kaisercraft Rhinestone eye, difficult to see in the photo.

The two deer panels use the same materials: Tim Holtz Sizzix Darling Deer die set, Tim Holtz Sizzix Treeline die, and Tim Holtz Sizzix Decorative Trims Thinlet dies. Some of the trees are Tim Holtz Idea-ology Cardstock, spritzed with more of the Ranger Distress sprays. The deer are also colored with the Distress and Distress Oxide sprays.

The 6 x 6" wood panels are from Amazon. They're quite fun to do as they are easily decorated, similar to a square card. They can either stand on their own on a shelf, or be hung on the wall.

I hope that you've enjoyed these little gift makes. They were quite fun!

Have a wonderful Christmas weekend!
