Happy Birthday
by Marybeth Lopez

Hello from sunny California! Marybeth here today! I have a fun watercolor,  yet simple birthday card using 

Happy Birthday Bold and Happy Birthday Outline dies from Poppystamps .

I haven't done a watercolor background  in a while but after seeing a video on one I gave it another try.

I ran my card stock through a Xyron to add adhesive to the back for both layers. You have a choice to use, the thick outline or the thin. I chose the thick for the center of my Happy Birthday. After I was all done placing the darker color on top of the white, I placed the negative over my card as a guide to make sure it was spaced evenly. That's It!

I hope you like it! I think this would be great for either a girl or boy! Happy to have this one on hand and can't wait to make a few more!

Baby Thank You
by Sue McRae

P1320008c

Sue here with a sweet and simple baby thank you card.

I started out by die cutting and layering the tag frame 5 times, adhering it to the square layer and adding the sentiment.

The cute alphabet blocks were cut from three different shades of paper and attached with foam squares.

I used the Pinpoint Rectangle Layers for the yellow panel (don't you just love those tiny holes all around the edge?) and took a small image from the new Flower Patch Stamp set and stamped it randomly with yellow ink for a subtle background pattern. The thank you sentiment was stamped with black ink and clear heat embossed.

I added everything onto a yellow card base and finished off with a twine bow.

Sweet treat
by Ilona Zbieg

Hi everyone

 

IMG_2591

I would like to show you my new project. It is a chocolate card-box, perfect for standard size chocolate. 

Recently I made background on my cards myself. So it was this time. I made fresh  watercolor background.

For my card today I used Small Lux Poinsettia dies. I made three flowers in  bright colors.

Inside my card I glued Jumbled Alpha craft  dies.

I think it will be perfect gift for my daughter's teacher at the end of the school year.

Need a Quick Card?
by Marybeth Lopez

DSC_0194letters

Hello! I hope you are having a great week!  I love this Jumbled Alpha die !

DSC_0197letters

Before adhering two cut pieces together I sponged some ombre ink on the white die cut piece, something I enjoy doing

I find sponging very relaxing. If you need a fast card, this is a perfect die to use. You could also add a Happy Birthday stamp or baby congratulations, making the letters pink or blue.

The paper I used is Master’s Touch Watercolor paper from Hobby Lobby, it’s whiter than most. I know this card is simple but sometimes thats all you need! 

Thanks for the visit , I hope my simple design encouraged you a bit today. 

God Bless!
