Splendid Roses Thanks

Hello! Rachel here today with a beautiful (no coloring!) card using the Splendid Roses stamp set.

I've been trying to come up with card ideas that don't involve a whole lot of coloring recently. I know that not everyone likes to color or has time for it and I wanted to give some examples of how to use these beautiful stamps without coloring. For this card, I stamped my image repeatedly on a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock in Versamark ink and then heat embossed in Clear embossing powder. It creates a great texture with some fun shine! I cut my thanks die out of some Fog Gray card stock and then adhered it directly to my panel using some Multi Medium Matte to make sure it stayed in place over the texture from the embossing. I used some Be Creative double sided tape to adhere my panel to a white card base. The double sided tape makes sure it stays in place even though the panel was a little warped from my heat gun.

I finished off the card by stamping the rest of my sentiment in Versamark ink on a small strip of black paper and heat embossing it in white. I cut the end of the strip at an angle and adhered it to my card using some foam tape for a little bit of dimension.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Such a beautiful card with the fabulous background. The white bold die cut sentiment is perfect with the background.

  2. So gorgeous Rachel. Is the Blackberry Bliss cardstock from Bazzill or SSS or a different brand? I adore the color and would love to get some! Hugs! ~Meg

Baby Boy card bonanza!

Hi, Erica here with two cards today!

For the release post I made two baby girl card and only one boy card. Naturally, all my friends have decided to give birth to baby boys recently so that one itty-bitty card was already spoken for. Time to remedy that with another two boy cards and the sweet Sweet Baby Mine stamp set.

I started by cutting two A2 sized pieces of Strathmore Bristol Vellum card stock as I wanted to do an ink blended background for both cards. Using Post-It tape I taped strips across the panel to create a pattern, slightly different on both to keep it interesting. On one I went for blue and the other one got green and yellow. I also splattered more blue ink on the blue one and green ink on the green/yellow one.

On another piece of Bristol I stamped two baby lions with VersaMark ink and heat embossed them in white embossing powder. These got coloured in with Zig markers and then fussy cut.

On the blue card I also cut out a white frame as well as the words 'A Boy'…
