Rainbows and Stars

Wow, it's been a little while since I have posted. So sorry.   I have been busy crafting.  In fact I have a card class tomorrow and I am super excited to show you the cards we are making over the next little bit.  Below is a sneak peek of tomorrows class.  I was inspired by a similar card I saw on Pinterest.   I just love colourful cards and this card is super bright and fun, not to mention has some great bling!

I used an old retired stamp for the background.  "Extreme Elements" is still one of my favourites.  Hint -- Stamp the Yellow stamp, then the top and bottom stamps (Melon Mambo and Tempting Turquoise) and finally the Wild Wasabi and Pumpkin Pie.

The sentiment is from "A Dozen Thoughts" stamp set, which is a current set in the Annual Catalogue.   The Star Punch and Rhinestones are also current also.  
The card I saw on Pinterest used the all new "Happy Watercolour" stamp set from the current Occasions Catalogue.

I hope you like the card, let me know what you think!

Pretty Petals!

The new Catalogue includes a great new punch/stamp set bundle called "Petite Petals!"   With all of this winter weather I feel like this little set brings spring into your home.   Below is a birthday card I made using this set.  I used some retired products I have had hanging around my craft room.

When I saw these little flowers they screamed "Chalks" to me.  I used versamark to stamp the flowers and then used chalks and rubbed them over the stamped images.  I love this technique, it is colourful, fun and easy.  I used Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, and Whisper White Card Stock.  There is a great, bright, Spring feel to this card and it has been so snowy out that I just want to remember that sunny days are just around the corner.

Below is the Stamp Set and punch that is available now in the Occasions Catalogue.

Birthday Blend

I started playing with my Envelope Punch board last week.  Thanks to Becky Roberts at Inking Idaho, who creates some super cute File Folder Treat Holders. I will show you the link to her video tutorial at the bottom of this post.

I wanted to create a card for my friends birthday that would incorporate this great tool to hold the gift card I got her.   Check out what I came up with ....

Since I was giving her a coffee card I used the "Perfect Blend" stamp set.  I created a card to glue the Gift Card to.  The tab at the top is made from the Envelope Punch Board.  I then used some retired DSP to create the envelope on the Envelope Punch Board.  It was super easy using the measurement guide on the board.  I considered stamping or using an embossing folder for the base but in the end I wanted the Envelope to be the focal point and worried it would be too busy.
