I have two simple cards cards to share. Both use the same stamped image with different sentiments. I thought I’d create something a little different than my usual style.
SUPPLIES Stamps: Sprigs (30-284) Dies: Hello Frame (51-040); Wishes (51-036) Color: Candied Apple, Barn Door, Festive Berries, Picked Raspberries, Worn Lipstick Distress Ink (Ranger) Other: Queens Gold EP (Ranger); Versamark Ink; Wink of Stella Clear; Sequins
Both cards have an image stamped on black cardstock from the clear set Sprigs (30-284) which was heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I stamped the image numerous times in different lengths and angles.
I then colored a small piece of white card stock with various hues of red and pink Distress Ink coloring from dark to light. I sprinkled a little of water to add interest and allowed to dry. I die cut two sentiments from Hello Frame (51-040) and Wishes (51-036). I die cut the sentiments several times from black cardstock and adhered to the colored die cut to add thickness. Sequins were also added as a final touch.
Until next time….
I made this card back in May to celebrate my daughter’s graduation. She’ll be a high school freshman next week (eek!)
I LOVE Mama Elephant and particularly their character stamps. This card uses an image using the Tiny Heroes stamp and die set on a background using a die from Landscape Trio. The background was created using shades of blue Distress Inks. I then splattered water and added a little sparkle using a gold glitter pen. The heat and embossed sentiment is from the Hero Arts set, Dare to Dream.
Enjoy the weekend!
It was my turn this past Tuesday to share a simple card on the blog!
Here’s a sneak peak…

Lot’s of embossing and pinks and purples!
Until next time…
We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can make – Mother Teresa
I thought I’d start with a simple quote reflecting the power of a smile. A smile can simply turn your mood around and, at that moment, all is well.
Today I’m sharing a card simply using dies and bright colors.
SUPPLIES Dies: Half Circle (51-213); Flights of Fancy (51-132); Hooray (51-038) Color: Arcylic Pain (Martha Stewart; Americana) Other: Gesso (Golden’s); Black Cardstock, Spray Adhesive (Elmer’s Glue)
I used arcrylic paints to color the the die cut Half Circle (51-213) as well as black cardstock to capture the sentiment from the die set Hooray (51-038) and the small butterfiles from the die set Flights of Fancy (52-132).
Enjoy and smile!

Just sharing a birthday tag I created back in April. I made it for my daughter’s very sweet friend.
SUPPLIES Stamps: Tiny Heroes (Mama Elephant); Dare to Dream (Hero Arts) Die: Die-Namics Pierced Traditional Tag STAX (MFT) Awesome (Lil Inkers) Color: Copic Markers; Prismacolor Pencils; Dandelion Hybrid (Hero Arts) Black Licorice Hybrid (MFT); Black Onyx Versafine (Tsukineko) Other: Wink of Stella Clear (Kuretake); Clear Embossing Powder (Ranger)
I don’t often use my Copic Markers because I’m still not confident in my blending techniques. But I’m happy I did w/ this little supergal. Her facial tone was colored with Prismacolor Pencils. I added Wink of Stella Clear to the die which was cut multiple times to add dimension.
Hope you all are enjoying the weekend!
It’s June and it’s already so hot here. I’m looking forward to visiting family and escaping the heat very soon.
Here is a birthday card I created using watercolor and a few neglected stamps.
SUPPLIES Stamps: Come Rain or Shine (30-236); Special Thoughts (30-338) Color: Gansai Tambi Watercolor (Kuretake); Prismacolor Pencils; Black Licorice Hybrid Ink (MFT); Antique Linen Distress Ink (Ranger) Other: Versamark (Tsukineko); White Embossing Powder (Zig); Sequins; Watercolor Paper (Strathmore)
The card was simple to make. I stamped the flower image from Come Rain or Shine (30-236) twice diagonally across from each other on a watercolor paper panel. The images were colored with my Gansai Tambi set and then further highlighted with Prismacolor Pencils. My sentiment from Special Thoughts (30-338) was stamped with Versamark on a black cardstock and then embossed with white embossing powder. I randomly added Antique Linen Distress Ink throughout the panel and splattered black ink with a small brush. The sentiment was adhered to the panel with foam tape. To complete the panel I added sequins and then adhered to a white card base.
