Happy Birthday Blossoms

Hello! Rachel here today with a fun birthday card!


I started my card by cutting out a Wonky Stitched Rectangle which would become to the focal point of my card. I stamped my image onto it and then used my Copics to color it. I decided to branch out and use a color combo that I don't normally reach for. I used V12, V15, V17, and V09 for my blossoms. I was a little worried because V09 and V17 are extremely dark, but I like how it looks once it's all blended and dried. I used my old stand-by of YG95, YG97, and YG99 for the leaves and E55, E57, and E59 for the stem. I finished it off with my typical halo of C00, C01, and C03 around the image to make it look 3 dimensional.

I set aside my image and cut and folded a white card base. I used some Fog Gray ink to ink up my Roses All Over stamp and stamped it onto my base for a subtle background. For my sentiment, I cut a black banner and stamped in Versamark ink. I heat embossed in white and folded the ends under.

I adhered my focal image directly onto my card base with a tape runner. (I'm trying to keep it relatively flat for mailing, so I skipped the foam tape for this piece of the card.) I adhered my banner on top with a tiny bit of foam tape for some subtle dimension.

That's all for today! Thanks for joining me!

Matching Poinsettia Card and Tag

Rachel here today with a card featuring a peek at a future set.


I decided to create a matching card and tag set to use this Christmas season. The Poinsettias are gorgeous and so much fun to color!


Right now, these images are in digital format, so I arranged them in a Word document and then printed them out on some Neenah Solar White cardstock. I used my KGC stitched rectangle die to cut out the portion of the images that I wanted to use and then used my Copics to color them in and added shadows around them. I used my MISTI to line up my sentiment on top of my panel and then heat embossed in gold. I adhered my panel to a Fog Gray card base to add a little contrast.


Next up, I used a tag die to cut out another image for the front of my tag and then used the same process to color it in. I cut another tag from some white cardstock and then heat embossed my sentiment on it. I adhered the sentiment to the back of my poinsettia image to create a completed tag which also hid any bleeding from…

Counting Down!

Hi its Karen on the blog with you today.

I think I may be in denial about Christmas.  It just seems to be sneaking up very very fast.  I know I have loads to do and really need to get going. Hopefully posting this Christmas Ornament may just help. This super cute little image from Kennedy Grace Creations is such a joy to colour and even though he's a christmas critter I think he could be used all year round on projects.  I used a die cut from Frantic Stamper Inc to cut the ornament in very sparkly paper.  Then popped the image up on foam.  Added some silver twine and there you have a super cute and easy ornament to adorn the tree or a special gift tag.  I think these would look lovely against shiny white wrapping paper.

I know it looks huge in the photo but its approximately 2.5 x 2.5 inches in size.


Have a great day!
