Hello Fairy Tag...

Hi everyone! As you know, I love making tags, and today, I've created a sweet spring tag using the newest die template release called Marisa's Bouquet by Spellbinders® Paper Arts. This die set is perfect for flower making with four different types of flowers, and the leaves/foliage to go with it! This is a must-have set for cardmaking!

~Enjoy!

True Joy...

Hi everyone! Today, I have a simple card using new releases by Spellbinders® Paper Arts called Topiary Treasures and Splendid Fountain. I created this card by sponging the background in blues and greens, then added my topiary pieces and the birds from the Splendid Fountain die template set. An inspiring sentiment from JustRite Papercraft, and my card was done!!

~Enjoy!

Hugs...

Hi everyone! Spellbinders® Paper Arts has just released a wonderful new floral die template set called Flower Bundle, and my card focuses on it today. I simply cut the leafy strip and shaded it with pistachio ink, then chose one of the floral designs, (there are three included with this set) for my flowers. Cut out however many flowers you'd like, (there are three sizes), stencil and arrange on top of the leaf strip. Add a butterfly from Flutter Love and you have created a card in 15 minutes that looks amazing!

Congrats...

Hi everyone! Today, I am continuing my series with Ken Oliver's newest watercolor powders called Colorburst and I love how this card turned out. (See my first card HERE) Using these powders are so easy, and no two backgrounds will ever be the same. Pair it with fun Spellbinders® Paper Arts die templates, a sentiment from JustRite® Papercraft and finish it off with a bow made of silk ribbon from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

~Enjoy!

Just Because...

Hi everyone! Today, I have a lovely card I wanted to share using some of the newest die templates from Spellbinders® Papers Arts called Crafty Flower One, Labels 47 Decorative Elements, and Oval Majesty. These stunning dies are beautiful against my vibrant background of purple, green and teal.

To create my colorful background, I used Ken Oliver's Colorburst Watercolor Powder, and it's so easy to use! Simply sprinkle the powder (a little bit goes a long way) onto watercolor paper, add water and watch the amazing colors appear. Let the paper dry, then cut with your die templates. Easy as that, and no two backgrounds will be the same!

So proud...

Hi everyone! Today, I have created a stunning card using a new paper pad by Ken Oliver called Watercolored Memories! Oh my gosh, I fell in love with this floral pad and am excited to see that one side has a vibrant print and the back is soft and muted. A very versatile look with large print flowers that can be used with minimal embellishments or die cuts.  As you can see by my card, I let the paper do most of the work and enhanced it with a small tag and butterfly die cuts from Spellbinders Paper Arts®

Stay tuned for more creations from me using this paper pad, and make sure you purchase it at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store before it is all gone! As a side note, I'm also loving the 1/8th inch silk ribbon that is new to the store, making a fabulous frilly bow! (Supplies listed below)
