5 Cards featuring the "Seas the Day" papers!


Today I’m sharing 5 more of the 10 card-designs we were
supposed to be creating at our March 21st Triple Treat Workshop, 
BUT since it had to be canceled, many of my
 creative friends will be picking up their kits from
me and making these cards from home!

These cards feature the “Seas the Day” paper collection
and were designed by Addie Ebersohl! Card-makers who have 
purchased this kit from me will be making 20 cards
(2 each of 10 designs). I should still have a few of these 
kits left-over (20 cards for $40), so if you'd like to 
purchase a kit "to go" please feel welcome to contact me.

*Family Legacy* Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

THANK YOU for stopping by to enjoy our
March Stamp of the Month Blog Hop
featuring this month's SOTM:
Family Legacy S2003

If you've just arrived here from
then you are on the correct path.

Today I'm sharing a standard-size card I created
using the SOTM and the (NEW this month)
Yesterday & Today paper pack!!
I also added a little bit of Mint-colored cardstock
for an extra pop of color. Also featured on my card
is our NEW Classic Alphabet Thin Cuts, that I am
so thrilled with and just couldn't wait to use finally!


The images below will give you a clearer idea 
of how I stamped just part of the word "Love." 
First, I covered (adhered sticky side to stamp)
just part of my image (the letter L) with a yellow post-it 
note, then inked it up with an Espresso ink pad, and then
removed the post-it note before stamping on my project.





I hope that my card and this simple 
masking technique inspires you!
Now you can continue on with the blog hop
and be inspired by more creativity using this 
stamp set by visiting BECCA's BLOG next!

*Stamptacular* Stamp + Thin Cuts Blog Hop!

THANK YOU for stopping by to enjoy our


If you've just arrived here from
then you are on the correct path.

We currently have so many amazing stamp sets 
on sale right now that it was hard to choose
 just one set to feature today.

I never seem to have enough birthday cards
on hand, so I chose a set that would motivate
me to make more birthday cards.
I just love the variety of funny sentiments
included in this set and know I'll continue to get
a lot of use from them...so this was a must-have
set for me! 


These two standard-size cards feature item #Z3629
Celebrate Today - Cardmaking Stamp + Thin Cuts
along with the Celebrate Today paper collection (X7252B).
Ink colors I used include Almond, Bluebird, 
Intense Black, Lagoon, and Lemonade.
The sentiment "pretending to be" was stamped with
intense black ink on mint cardstock, cut out by hand,
and adhered with 3d foam mounting tape.
The glasses were also stamped with intense black ink
(on vellum!) and then cut out with the thin cuts. 
The white triangles you see peeking out from behind
the lenses are just the pieces of 3d foam mounting tape
 (showing through) that I used to adhere it on with.
I used simple/basic stamping techniques,
nothing fancy... because I want to be able to make
a whole bunch of these cards quickly and easily.


I hope my cards will motivate you to want to play
with this fun stamp set if you haven't already!

*Cherishing Her* Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

THANK YOU for stopping by to enjoy our
February Stamp of the Month Blog Hop
featuring this month's SOTM:
Cherishing Her S2002


If you've just arrived here from
then you are on the correct path.

Today I'm sharing a standard-size card I created
using the SOTM and the Julep "Mix-in" patterned
paper that can be seen using this link.


My featured technique today is:
Partial Scene Masking with Dies
You can easily find a variety of instructional videos
that show how to do this technique on YouTube,
just do a quick search for"partial scene masking."

Ink pad colors I used here include:
Intense Black, Ballerina, Pixie, and Raspberry.
The thin-cut I used was the largest frame from
our new Stitched Bracket Thin Cuts Z3631.
The mask was cut from an address sticker label
backing I had saved. The thin waxy paper holds
up nicely as you blend your ink inward from the 
edges and can then be re-used multiple times.

It required a little practice to get my ink to blend
perfectly, but I used three round make-up sponges 
(that's just what I happened to have on hand),
and it worked just fine. No special tools required!



I hope my card inspires you to try this beautiful technique!
