Kindness Starts With Us

Hello! Rachel here today with another simple card. The word "kindness" has been on my mind a lot lately, so I guess it's just business as usual that it made its way onto a card I created.


I started my card by cutting a panel with a Wonky Stitched Rectangle die. I stamped my image to the left of the card and then used my Copics to color them. I used a different blue combination than I normally do for this one - B37, B45, B93, and B41. My YGs were the typical YG99, YG97, and YG95. I used my cool grays (C3, C1, and C00) to create the halo around my images that makes them look like they pop off the white card.

After coloring my image, I used my Kindness die to cut the word from panel. I also cut 3 other words from white card stock. I adhered them all together with the colored portion on top and then after adhering my panel to a card base, inlaid the die inside the cut.


This is one of my favorite techniques. It adds a lot of interest to a card without adding a ton of bulk. I finished my sentiment by heat embossing the stamp on a gray piece of cardstock in white. I adhered the sentiment with some foam tape and then added a sprinkling of Moonbeams sequins to finish it off.

Thanks for joining me today!

Spreading Kindess card

Hello everyone, Erica on the blog today!

I don't know about you but I've been quite saddened to see so much hatred, friends attacking friends and general unkindness going around lately. Regardless of your political/religious/personal beliefs I think we can all do better with keeping it a bit civilised and perhaps doing less talking and more actions. With that in mind I made this card with a positive message to send out some positive karma into the world.

















Using an A2 panel cut out from Ranger Ink water colour paper, I dusted it generously with my anti-static tool as I was going to heat emboss the gorgeous Just A Rose stamp set. I started by stamping it in the middle with VersaMark ink and dusting it with white embossing powder, also from Ranger Ink. Using a mask I already had, I stamped it again on both sides to create a rose bush border, before adding and setting the embossing powder with my heat tool.

Using a sentiment from Mama Elephant's 'Butterfly Kisses' I st…

Happy Owl-idays!

Hello, everyone! Rachel here with you today!

I'm loving the cute little critters that are going to be coming up in a new release and I think you're going to love them, too. I have a clean and simple creation using a new owl image for you today.


I started my card by masking off a small strip on the right hand side of the card and then blending purple and pink inks into the strip to create an ombre effect. After it had dried, I used a stencil and some texture paste to create my falling snow. I carefully removed my masking paper and then let the texture paste dry.

While I waited, I colored my little owl image and used my Brother Scan N Cut 2 to cut him out. (Have I mentioned lately how much I hate fussy cutting?) When I was sure the card was dry, I used my MISTI to line up my sentiment and stamped it in a bold, black ink. I used some foam tape to adhere my little own beside my sentiment and my card was done!

Thanks for joining me today!
