Hi There Bear… saying hello

Hi Crafty Friends,

Woohoo! We are excited to bring you this video making an adorable card design that features a cutie patootie little bear from the Hi There Bear stamp and die set by Concord & 9th. The stamp set includes lots of fun accessories for ‘dressing up’ your bear but in this card design, he is expressing a simple sentiment with his sign.

With this card design, you can easily change the sentiment to any you desire making it a cute way to send a greeting. Or, make a set of cards with different sentiments and give to a friend.

Piece of Cake… a birthday cake for you

Hi Crafty Friends,

I couldn’t resist sharing this huge piece of cake with you using the new Neat & Tangled Piece of Cake stamp and die set. First of all, I LOVE cake and second, this is a super fun coloring project. This card was made with a number 8 candle for my granddaughter’s friend’s birthday party but I hope this doesn’t discourage you from trying it yourself, it works for any age person young at heart. It is so festive and fun!

I love the new Stacey Yacula’s stamp and die set, Joyful Heart Bears by My Favorite Things. These sets have the most charming little bears, each filled with love in their heart!

Brilliant Blooms, Two Ways and Two Color Schemes

Hi Everyone,

I started writing this post and found the explanation was getting too wordy, so… the next best thing I could think of was to create a video to explain all the ins and outs. You can view it below or on our YouTube channel.

The two card designs were made using the Brilliant Blooms stamp and die set by My Favorite Things. I have used this set before (click here to check it out) and was impressed by the versatility and beauty of the simple blossoms so decided to give it another look.

In these cards, I created a background by stamping and embossing the flowers, cut out the center and add a gracious sentiment from the Paper Artsy Eclectica3 stamp set. The left-over cut-out center was then used to create the second card.

Take a look at the video of the two different card design styles and colors.

Sled Ride In The Winter

Hi Crafty Friends,

The card design today does not have the usual color scheme for a Holiday card… but it is still one of my favorites. It might be that I love black and the contrast. In any event, I couldn’t resist making this color combination.

Besides the black, red and white, I love Pinkfresh’s Squirrel Friends stamp and die set. These squirrels are so cute! The other great thing is that I think you could use them year ’round. I am eager to see them in a forest meadow scene.

Merry Christmas and Sweet Tidings

Hi there,

We are sooooo excited to show off our new Alexandra Renke dies. There are three fabulous stars, though we are only using two for this project, and adorable Christmas icons like a gingerbread man and candy cane. The card is simple to make but the beautiful dies and paper from Alexandra Renke create an elegant design when finished!

As an extra bonus, these dies make wonderful ‘bows’ for gifts. Check out the image below.
