Positive Thoughts

Hi everyone.  Today I am sharing a card made with the new Positive Thoughts Stamp set.  I love the images in this set, perfect for a layered card, and the sentiments are nice to add to my collection. They are great for a thinking of you card but also for when you want to send a card to someone who is maybe hurting but not quite in need of a sympathy card.
I added extra depth to the images by first stamping with a lighter color and then adding a darker tone on top with sponges.  With the butterfly, I added some extra color with markers.
Here is a little sneak peek for you, the new Natures Thoughts Dies.  These will be released on February 4th as part of a collection of coordinating products that work with spring mini catalog products and sale-a-bration products.  I loved this stamp set, but I love them even more with this new die collection!!

I made a how to video that shows you how to make this card step by step.

Wataercolor Hearts for Valentine's Day

Hi Everyone! Today I am sharing a card for Valentine's Day.  If you have visited my blog before you know I love to watercolor, so I really enjoyed making this fun card. I used a couple of fantastic die collectins that I think are a must have for your collection.

The Stitched Be Mine dies are great for Valentine's, Weddings, Anniversaries and more.  There are so many heart dies you will be sure to find just the type and size you need for your projects. 

The Word Wishes dies will give you all the words you need for every holiday.  The dies are Merry, Happy, Christmas, Thanksgiving, Valentine's, Mother's, Father's, Halloween, St. Patrick's, Easter, New Year's, and Day.  These dies are sized nicely for both cards and Scrapbook pages.










Watch this how to video for a step by step on how to make this project.


 I just love how the colors of ink react together with an AquaPainter.  Imagine all the color combinations you could come up with.

 

Here is another version of this card that I made with the Stitched Stars dies.  This of what other shapes you can use with this technique.

Honey Bee Shaker Card


Check out this adorable new stamp set from Stampin' Up!  I love the look of the wings on these stamps and the whole collection of stamps and dies is really fantastic. The sentiment stamps provide a nice variety and you can really get a lot of use out of this set.







I love that there are dies to cut out all of the images, but the added honey comb die and detailed bee die put this collection over the top!












I made a shaker card with this set, and you can see how it comes together with this video.
