Butterfly Spring

 Fresh Springtime Greetings to you featuring Stamp Simply stamps, dies, and product! Loving the  sentiment greeting, it certainly is feeling fresh and beautiful in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Our snow has almost fully melted, with more lawn than snow showing. Eagerly awaiting the butterflies to arrive!


The base of this card is made up from watercolor paper, with the top panel receiving texture from Sizzix Tim Holtz' new "Woven" 3D Texture Fade embossing folder. What a fabulous embossing folder...it has marvelous detail and adds so much to a CAS card. 

The sentiment is from Stamp Simply's "Typewritten Year Round Greetings," stamped with Versafine Claire Morning Mist ink, then die cut with a Stamp Simply Fishtail Banner Sentiment die.


The butterflies are created by Sizzix Tim Holtz Thinlet Brushstroke Butterflies dies, cut from watercolor paper. I then watercolored them with Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Oxide inks, and spattered with Windsor and Newton White Gouache. Delicate, but very fun to paint and put together. 


A border of May Art's Burlap String (cream no longer available, other colors found HERE) finishes the design.

Welcome Baby Girl!


We have a new baby in our family and I am so very excited to welcome her with a sweet baby card using Stamp Simply's baby themed stamps, dies, and products! Featured here is Stamp Simply's "Welcome Baby" clear stamp and steel die sets. The sets can be purchased individually, or as a bundle.


Echo Park's "It's a Girl" decorator paper is perfect for a little girl or baby card. I love the delicate, pretty prints that go together wonderfully.


I made the baby onesie with the Stamp Simply "Welcome Baby Basics" steel die set. The set includes the adorable onesie and bib, along with seven baby themed items (rattle shown) to decorate your design. There is also a "baby" word die included.

The sentiment is from Stamp Simply's "Welcome Baby" clear stamp set. So many great sentiments! It was stamped directly onto the background using Versafine Claire Morning Mist ink. 


A Bible verse from the "Welcome Baby" set is stamped on the inside of the card to complete the design.

I hope that you like this easy to mail and perfectly flat-to-mail card.

April Showers Bring May Flowers

 

Here's a rainy day card for a loved one! I saw this fabulous decorator paper, Echo Park's "My Favorite Spring" at Stamp Simply, and HAD to make an umbrella card using it!

The umbrella die is made by Lawn Fawn, and purchased from Amazon HERE. I had been looking for a larger umbrella that would fit a card front, and this one fits the bill.

The adorable sentiment that is perfect for this card is from Stamp Simply, "Typewritten What You Mean to Me," stamped with Versafine Claire Nocturne ink. The sentiment was then die cut with a Stamp Simply Fishtail Banner Sentiment die. 

Fun, quick and easy to make and mail! Now if only the snow would melt! 

Have a great remainder to your weekend!

Fathers Day Michigan Lighthouse

Hello! Welcome! We have some beautiful lighthouses around the Great Lakes, including this one--the Keweenaw Waterway North Entry Lighthouse in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. 



I love that you can create pretty much any type of card using these lighthouse sets. Today I've chosen to create a Father's Day card. The lighthouse was stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored with Copic Sketch markers. It was die cut with the "He Stilled the Storm" steel die.

The base of the card is layers of Craft Consortium Ink Drops Ocean paper. The sentiment is from Stamp Simply's "All Occasion Sentiments Set Two" set, stamped with Versafine Claire Nocturne ink. It was then die cut with a Stamp Simply Fishtail Banner Sentiment die.

Graduation Card

Loving the Bible verses available in Stamp Simply's "Scripture for Graduation and Beyond" clear stamp set! They match wonderfully with the Stamp Simply "Congrats Grad" steel dies. See all of Stamp Simply's graduation products HERE.

The Bible verse is stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink, then die cut with Spellbinders Nestabilities Oval dies. The graduation cap and scroll are die cut three times each, then layered and glued together to provide more dimension. 

Speaking of matching...this new "Reminisce Grad" decorator paper, is perfect for cards. It's double sided with a black background covered with stars on the opposite side of this print. Fabulous!

America the Beautiful

Time for some patriotic inspiration! Stamp Simply has numerous patriotic stamp and die sets, perfect for the Memorial day, Independence Day, and Veteran's Day holidays. 

My card here uses Stamp Simply's "Old Glory" and "Patriotic Sentiments" stamp sets and die. 


I stamped the USA map flag onto white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored it with Copic Sketch markers. It was then die cut with the Old Glory Patriotic Stars and Stripes steel die. 

The USA was then layered onto a background of Echo Park's "America" decorator paper. The Stamp Simply "Patriotic Sentiment" was stamped directly onto the background using Versafine Claire Nocturne ink. 

Simple to mass produce; easy to mail.
