A Radiant Bloom – Three Ways

Hi Crafty Friends,

I am visiting you again with a new video. It demonstrates how you can use the beautiful stamp, Radiant by Penny Black three different ways. I guess I am a little obsessed with this stamp since I have used it before but it is the perfect bloom to fill a card design.

Take a look and see what you think. I love the use of the patterned paper and heat embossing to create a different look.

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.

It is so festive and fun!

Love You… A Valentine for your Valentine!

Hi Crafty Friends,

Here is the last card design showing off the new My Favorite Things Heart Art stamp set. I love the conversation heart idea and most of the all the shiny, red enamel-like heart in the last blog post so I borrowed that technique for the ‘Love You’ sentiment and added a few new ones.

A Bucket of Hearts For You

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.
