Bee Themed Window Card
by Jennifer Svare

BeeBorder2

Hello!  Today I'll share how I made this window card using the adorable bee stamp from the Little Kindness set, which paired perfectly with the Hexagon border layers.  Many different sentiments could have been used for this card, but I chose to leave the inside blank with just the bee.

Interior

The Studio Hexagon layers were used to make the window and frame, and the Little Hexagon Border layers were used to create the border.  I used distress inks to make a pink, yellow, and orange gradient underneath the hexagon layers. 

A little shimmer was added with a shimmer pen to cover the hexagons, frame, and bee.

Check out the video below for more details on how this card was made, and I hope you have a great day!

Elegant Koi
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0027

Hi! Nancy here, and I'm bringing you a card made with one of my favorites, Elegant Koi. Love the movement of this sweet little guy, and I used a few techniques to make him that I'd love to share with you.

1st off, the background

DSC_0003

I chose my colors based on water, such as a fish would be swimming in. Distress Oxide works best for this technique.

DSC_0004

I selected a stencil, this one is Memory Box's Garden Peony Blossoms.

Then comes the fun part...

Spritz the back of the stencil with water, and carefully place it on the inked panel.

Place a paper towel over the stencil, and weigh it down with a book or in this case I used an acrylic block.

DSC_0028

Wait awhile for the water to soak into the ink. I waited 5 minutes.

DSC_0030

When you remove the stencil the image is set into your panel! Isn't that wild? Thanks to Marcia Hill, who taught me this fun technique!

DSC_0022

I also used a stencil to create the glittery scales for my Elegant Koi. First die cut with vellum, then spread with Nuvo Glimmer Paste (Moonstone colored with re-inker). I wanted a bit of orange on my yellow koi, so I added a few spots of watercolor.

DSC_0005

Brush Hello was cut 3 times with 3 shades of  blue shimmer paper. 

Hope you enjoyed today's post and my little tutorial. It's a fun technique that really adds a punch to a background, and another  fun way to use your stencils.

Sending Handmade Hugs
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0010

Hi! It's my turn to show you a card made with Poppystamps die, Country Rose Corner.

DSC_0004

Another new die set I used is: Big Hexagon Border Layer and Little Hexagon Border Layer. 2 different dies,

when used together make a big layering impact!

DSC_0012

Is there anything sweeter than pinks and pale blue for Spring?

I took out the pieces of my rose die cut and copic colored the petals. Also copic colored the fern leaves. You'll notice I used 3 rose dies for their fern leaves, to look like they were climbing a lattice.

DSC_0008

I wanted a controlled 'splatter' of dots, so I stamped the dots from Peony Stems and Blossoms.

Hope you enjoyed my Spring card, and are inspired to create one too!

Floral Dotted Border
by Jeanne Jachna

Floral-Dotted-Border-Five
I hope you're having a great day!  I'm looking for Spring in my little part of the world, and so far it looks like it's alluding me.  On dreary days I like to craft and make a bright spot of my own.  Here's what I made today!
Floral-Dotted-Border-Three
I should have checked the availability of all the dies I worked with today before I started crafting.  My apologies but the Blooming Poppy is no longer available.  Maybe you already have it? What's unique about my card today is really the background - and I think it would make a beautiful setting for any floral die you might have.
Floral-Dotted-Border
I started by creating an ombre red background.  The typical card I make is an A2 size (4.25 x 5.5").  I usually cut the cover panel slightly smaller than the card base leaving about an quarter inch border around the card (finished size 4 x 5.25").  I chose 5 different shades for my background.  I made each strip a little over an inch wide.  I taped the different colored panels together and then trimmed them to fit my card base. 

Floral-Dotted-Border-One
Next I cut a panel of white card stock 4 x 6"  Using a ruler I lined up the floral dotted border die as close to the edge as possible, taped the die in place and cut the border on both edges of the paper.  It's very important to use a ruler because the flowers on the outside edge of the die are uneven.  line up the die from the inside (where the dots are) Because the panel is longer than the actual die it stays together until you're ready to trim it down for the card cover. 
Floral-Dotted-Border-Four
All that's left is to embellish the center panel with your favorite image.  I matched the colors of the blooms with the colors included in the ombre background.   I love the color peeking through the open designed flowers.  They look like lace!
Floral-Dotted-Border-Two
This is a great way to stretch your border dies!  I hope you'll give this technique a try!

Cascade of Posies
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0059

Hi! I'm so glad you joined me today. I have a card made with a new Poppy die called, Pierced Finnegan Circle.

DSC_0068

A friend of mine recently had shoulder surgery, and wanted her to know she's on my heart and mind. Here's a few of

what I used to create this card.

DSC_0051

After running the die through the die cutting machine, I inked a bit of color to hi light the pierced design.

DSC_0048

Blooming Border provided the posies and leaves, which I cut from vellum.

DSC_0064

Lots of sequin flower centers, and a sweet 'feel better', and my card's ready to send!

Hope you got some inspiration today. And hope you have a 'craftilicous' day!

For my post today I am featuring the Big Circle Border Layer die; I think it adds a nice touch to my panel and allows the background color to show.

My bouquet was created using Peony Stems and Blossom, stamps and dies. The images were stamped with Memento Desert Sand onto watercolor paper and simply colored.
